Beginning with the ARPANET, an endless stream of networks evolved, and ultimately were interlinked to become the Internet.” RFC 2468, Part 1 Before the internet, before domain names, and before I was born, there was the ARPANET — the little network that could.…

Identifying optimal adaptation of buildings threatened by hurricanes, climate change

The need for adaptation strategies to reduce the threat of hurricanes to society is of critical importance, as evidenced by the recent damage to coastal regions in the U.S. and the Caribbean this past year.

Pollinators use multiple cues to identify flowers across continents — ScienceDaily

Although at least 75% of our crop species depend on the activities of wild pollinators, little is known about their flower preferences. As global populations of domestic bee pollinators decline, it is of utmost importance for us to understand what factors attract wild pollinators such as hoverflies to flowers, and how these preferences differ in the face of environmental change. Now, a team of scientists from Uppsala and Flinders University and the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) have discovered…

I suspect that all but lazy people would prefer the “engineer it” method over “hack & patch.” Unfortunately, we aren’t’ always given enough time or resources to do it right, which leads to the common expression: “Never time to do it right, but always time to do it over.” A similar concept applies in…
