Who’s the real beast here, huh

Sounds like I’m going in for surgery this week so if I don’t talk to you before then I’ll try really hard not to die on the operating table.

If you want to give me a really nice present while I get ready for/recover from having my neck sliced open, maybe give it a rest with the nit picking and pedantry in the comments.

Charade

by David M Willis

so anyway there’s a kickstarter to make three different fully-articulated 1/6-scale scientifically-accurate raptor action figures and i figure if this doesn’t fund dina will leap out of your screens and murder every single damn one of you so here’s a link

and if dina leaping out of your screen to murder you sounds enticing, then she will NOT do this if the kickstarter does not fund

dina is canny

Reductive Umpolung of Carbonyl Derivatives with Visible-Light Photoredox Catalysis: Direct Access to Vicinal Diamines and Amino Alcohols via α-Amino Radicals and Ketyl Radicals

by Eleonora Fava, Anthony Millet, Masaki Nakajima, Sebastian Loescher, Magnus Rueping

Abstract

Visible-light-mediated photoredox-catalyzed aldimine–aniline and aldehyde–aniline couplings have been realized. The reductive single electron transfer (SET) umpolung of various carbonyl derivatives enabled the generation of intermediary ketyl and α-amino radical anions, which were utilized for the synthesis of unsymmetrically substituted 1,2-diamines and amino alcohols.

Anilines can be coupled with aldimines or aldehydes in a visible-light-mediated photoredox-catalyzed process. Reductive single electron transfer (SET) umpolung of the carbonyl derivatives leads to the generation of intermediary ketyl and α-amino radical anions, which were used for the synthesis of unsymmetrically substituted 1,2-diamines and amino alcohols.

What Happened to Google Maps?

by manishs
Google Maps has reduced the number of cities it shows by up to 83% over the past few years, according to Justin O'Beirne. Maps, in addition, has increased the number of roads it showcases. O'Beirne, who writes about digital maps, in a blog post outlines the changes Google has made to its mapping and navigation service over the years. The side-by-side screenshots comparison on his blog post shows that Google has largely abandoned labelling towns and cities in favor of showing as many roads as it can. He has also looked into several elements of Maps from the design standpoint, and questioned Google's decision. He writes: If these roads were so important that they deserved to be upgraded in appearance, why weren't they also given shield icons? After all, an unlabeled road is only half as useful as a labeled one. [...] [Comparing Google Maps to a paper map] Even though it's from the early 1960s, the old print map has so much more information than the Google Map. So many more cities. So many more road labels. And the text size is comparable between the two. O'Beirne believes that Google has made these changes to better serve mobile users. "Unfortunately, these 'optimizations' only served to exacerbate the longstanding imbalances already in the maps," he writes. "As is often the case with cartography: less isn't more. Less is just less."
