Prisons

filed under: @ 09:25:58

The land of the free has become the land of the jailed. Between 1973 and 2000 the rate of incarceration in the United States more than quadrupled. There are more people behind bars (literally and proportionally) than any time in American history. One in every 32 adults is currently on probation, in jail or prison, or on parole. There are more prisoners than farmers. There are more prisoners than there are Lutherans. There are more prisoners than there are Native Americans.

Weaning America off prison

As long as there will be the need to build prisons and fill them up with people, the worldwide human society will always be a primitive example of incapacity to recognize our single responsability towards each other. A society that still somehow produces people that end up, for whatever reason, doing something damaging for others and that as the only proposed solution proceeds to arrest and lock them up, turning them even worse in most cases, is a sorry instance of what it should be in the 21st century.

Invisibility cloaks and tsunamis

filed under: @ 09:41:23

Invisibility cloaks that are able to steer light around two dimensional objects have become reality in the last few years. But the first real-world application of the theories that made them possible could be in hiding vulnerable coastlines and offshore platforms from destructive tsunamis.

Save For Web color shift

filed under: @ 09:17:33

Fellow designers: somewhere between PSD and JPG, Photoshop is draining our colors of their life, like some horrible, RGB-stealing vampire. There's a lot of confusion on the web over why this is, and a lot of solutions being offered.

Humans vs Chimps

filed under: @ 10:01:02

An image of how the gene FOXP2 differs in humans versus chimps. The gene is believed to be one of the primary differences between our species, as it has been linked to language acquisition. All ~75,000 letters of the gene are shown, however only nine letters (shown with red dots) comprise the only significant (coding) changes in the gene.
