    By DNLee | June 30, 2015 |

    Wait, have I been here 5 and a half weeks already?  Wow! Times goes fast. I haven't been able to post as much as I would like.  The internet has been so slow...and the power outages..I've lost count on how many black outs I've experienced since arriving. […]

    Voyeurism and Feral Pigeons

    By Darren Naish | 23 hours ago |

    I'm a big fan of pigeons. They do lots of interesting things, they look neat, they're pretty 'extreme' when it comes to various of their abilties, and they're accessible and easy to watch. Comparatively few of us get to watch long sequences of behaviour in wild birds, but pigeons - here I'm talking about the feral/domestic form of the Rock dove or Rock pigeon Columba livia - provide those of us interested in birds with excellent views of...

    Bad News for Hollywood

    By Dana Hunter | 23 hours ago |

    So, you know those disaster movies where volcanoes explode like Mount St. Helens, but also spew fountains of really runny lava like Kilauea on laxatives? I have really bad news for them, courtesy of Edward Wolfe and Thomas Pierson in Volcanic-Hazard Zonation for Mount St. […]

    A Belated Apology to Mozart and Modular Arithmetic

    By Evelyn Lamb | June 27, 2015 |

    My first musical love was Beethoven. The 2nd movement of Beethoven’s 7th Symphony was the first piece of music that made me want to cry. When I started to play viola, the cello suites were the gateway to my long, passionate relationship with Bach. […]

    The Richest Reef: To Collect or Not to Collect?

    Mathematical Art Takes a Fresh Look at Wallpaper

    By Frank A. Farris | June 26, 2015 |

    When you look through a kaleidoscope, the scene in front of you becomes a mosaic of tiles. My mathematical art is similar, but with a twist: it turns the textures and colors of the world into a pattern, but without the rigidity of mirrors. This work—detailed in my new book, Creating Symmetry: The Artful Mathematics of Wallpaper Patterns — is recognizably mathematical, but with a wild variety of rhythm, and this makes it symmetric, yet organic.

    How Information Builds a Community

    By Krystal D'Costa | June 25, 2015 |

    It might be hard to believe in today's mobile-enabled world, but landlines were once the primary option when it came to telephones. And prior to residences having private lines, community lines where neighbors shared a single telephone and party lines where four, eight, or even twelve neighbors shared a telephone were the norm.
