Over the last year or so, German street artist 1010 (previously) created several of his fantastic spray paint portals in locations around Germany, Panama, and the United States. 1010 brings surprising layers of depth to drab facades and blank gallery walls by painting concentric layers of color. The artist most recently had a solo show at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco titled Limbus. You can see more over on Juxtapoz and on Facebook.

Contatos do Google ganha interface totalmente reformulada

by Ricardo Fraga

contatos_google_preview_listagem

Se há algo que me incomoda há muito tempo no Google, é o desprezo que a empresa demonstrava ao abandonar totalmente o Contatos do Google. Fazer qualquer coisa, naquela interface, era absurdamente sofrível. Mas, felizmente, parece que Mountain View resolveu dar um “tapa no visual” do serviço.

No final da tarde desta terça-feira, o Google anunciou a liberação, a todos os usuários, da versão preview do Contatos do Google. Com uma interface muito similar ao Inbox by Gmail (alguém lembra dele?), o novo gerenciador de contatos segue a linha material design que vem sendo adotada em vários serviços da empresa e centraliza, de uma maneira mais organizada e em um só lugar, as informações já existentes dos contatos com as informações públicas de seus perfis do Google+.

Ao acessar o serviço, o usuário dá de cara com uma listagem de todos os contatos separados por grupos. No menu flutuante da esquerda, é possível filtrar os contatos pelos grupos criados pelo usuário, os círculos do Google+, além da opção de encontrar e unificar contatos duplicados. Assim que entrei na opção, ele me avisou que havia 44 contatos duplicados e, em uma questão de minutos, eu já havia unificado todos eles com alguns poucos cliques do mouse.

contatos_google_preview_merge

Ao acessar um usuário específico, o Contatos do Google exibirá todas as informações localizadas sobre o indivíduo, independentemente da sua origem. Em uma só página, será possível visualizar os endereços de e-mail, números de telefones e as últimas mensagens trocadas com o contato em questão. Ao passar o mouse sobre as informações, um badge aparece e informa se a informação em questão foi inserida por você, ou se pertence ao perfil do usuário no Google+.

Se todos os contatos mantiverem as informações atualizadas no perfil do Google, você terá bem menos dor de cabeça de mandar mensagens ou efetuar chamadas telefônicas para um número inexistente.

contatos_google_preview_detalhes

Particularmente, gostei muito da experiência de uso da nova interface do Contatos do Google. Agora é esperar que ela seja amadurecida ao longo das próximas semanas, quando será disponibilizado a todos os usuários do Gmail. Mas, se você é como eu e não gosta de esperar para testar novidades, só clicar aqui e ser feliz.

AEP : Anti-Science 'Skeptics' Are Not Skeptics. They Are Incredibly Willing to Believe BS.

Tadeu

Essa apropriação da palavra "cético" é a cara da Fox News. Fucking fuckers!

“The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use them.” ― Philip K. Dick

Newton Blog

Being a "skeptic" is in. Doubtless, a great many "skeptics" of manmade climate change, vaccines, and 9/11 fancy themselves as brave, stalwart holdouts, standing tall against a tide of opposition, like Davy Crockett at the Battle of the Alamo.

But they aren't.

They are, however, incredibly willing to believe alternative, pie-in-the-sky explanations. Put it another way: They're not skeptical; they're extremely gullible.

Many climate skeptics contend that the massive scientific consensus on climate change is instead a conspiratorial hoax. Some vaccine refusers believe that health officials knowingly or unknowingly permit vaccine manufacturers to inoculate us with dangerous chemicals. 9/11 truthers argue that the attacks on the World Trade Center may have been orchestrated by our own government and covered up by the media. There is no convincing evidence to support any of these theories, but there is quite a lot that debunks them. In short, while these "skeptics" are incredulous to facts, they are incredibly credulous to fairy tales. This makes them some of the least skeptical people on Earth. Blinded by their ingrained, ideological worldviews, all they're doing is fooling themselves, and denying reality.

"They tell themselves that they’re the ones who see the lies, and the rest of us are sheep. But believing that everybody’s lying is just another kind of gullibility,” Slate's William Saletan eloquently stated.

For a great example of a "skeptic" who is blinded by his beliefs, look no further than comedian Bill Maher, who regularly (and rightly) lambasts Republicans for denying the overwhelming evidence on climate change, while at the same time ignoring even more overwhelming evidence on the safety and effectiveness of vaccines. Ideology, not evidence, governs his stances.

With the term "skeptic" being thrown around so haphazardly these days, it's worth mentioning what it really means to be a true skeptic. Few people know that better than the Fellows of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry, an organization founded in part by Carl Sagan and Isaac Asimov to promote "objective and impartial inquiry." In December, they announced their concern that "skeptic" was being confused with "denier," making it clear that the two terms are not the same:

Proper skepticism promotes scientific inquiry, critical investigation, and the use of reason in examining controversial and extraordinary claims. It is foundational to the scientific method. Denial, on the other hand, is the a priori rejection of ideas without objective consideration.

A true skeptic never dismisses an idea out of hand. A true skeptic is willing to be wrong, and recognizes an echelon of evidence that will change their mindset. And most importantly, a true skeptic doesn't only question the beliefs of others, he also questions his own. Because skepticism isn't just about doubting things you disagree with, it's about keeping yourself honest, open, thoughtful, and true.

If "skeptics" of climate change, GMOs, and vaccines, can embrace those standards, then they may call themselves true skeptics. If not, then they are simply anti-science deniers.

What Would Minecraft 2 Look Like Under Microsoft?

by timothy
An anonymous reader writes "Microsoft spent billions purchasing Mojang, the studio behind the game Minecraft, and while it's unlikely to start work on a sequel anytime soon, rather than continue development of the game, it's worth considering what a Minecraft 2 will look like. After all, as a public company with revenues to justify, it doesn't seem beyond unreasonable a few years down the line, especially since a Minecraft-like game was one of the stand-out tech demos shown for the software giant's HoloLens augmented reality headset. As the author points out, Microsoft will have to tread carefully, tackling issues like whether greater graphical fidelity is actually what players will want ever — and whether to continue to support Minecraft on PlayStation."

Spock and the Legacy of Star Trek

by samzenpus
StartsWithABang writes While the nerd/geek world mourns the death of Leonard Nimoy in its own way, it's important to remember the legacy that Star Trek — and that Spock and alien characters like him — left on our world. Unlike any other series, Star Trek used a futuristic, nearly utopian world to explore our own moral battles and failings, and yet somehow always managed to weave in an optimism about humanity and our future. This is something, the author argues, that is sorely missing from the new J.J. Abrams movies.
