Roger Federer - Best Points in high definition
YouTube l https://www.youtube.com/

A Fed feast. What Roger did to Nadal in Australian Open final 2017:
"Took away his best stroke inside out FH" by:
1. Eliminating slice BH thereby not giving Nadal set up time.
2. Hitting flat over the ball ob BH and taking it early.
3. Hitting cross court flat BH
4. Mixing flat BH with loopy balls to upset rythem.
5. Eliminated side to side play pattern by hitting agressively on every ball, this kept rallies short and never let Nadal set into a rhythm.
As a result Nadal was forced to hit down the line FH which is spectacular to look at but also prone to errors.

Stanford researchers debunk popular flight models by flying birds through lasers
YouTube l https://www.youtube.com/

Stanford reserachers trained parrotlets to wear cute laser goggles and fly through laser beams in order to study the air particles and vortices and thereby validate models of lift produced off its wake. They found that assumptions in all existing models were "wrong".
"The results are commonly referenced for work on flying robots and drones inspired by the biology of these animals. Bio-inspired robots are a specialty of Lentink – his students developed the first flapping robot that can take off and land vertically like an insect and a swift-like robot with wings that deform as it swoops and glides.

Anju Sharma What an amazing idea to get the teeny weeny parrots to wear goggles for protection and research! Can we say no bird was harmed in testing?

Breaking: Obama Admin Halts Dakota Access Pipeline Construction after Months of Resistance

On Sunday the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers denied the Dakota Access pipeline company a permit to drill underneath the Missouri River-officially halting construction of the $3.8 billion oil pipeline that has faced months of resistance from the Standing Rock Sioux in North Dakota and members of more than 200 Indigenous nations from across the Americas, as well as their non-Native allies.

Gandhian Satyagrah by Native Americans, Veterans and good people halt the pipeline. Amy Goodman herself spared no effort in publicizing the effort.
Oil price drop is good news as it threatens the very economics of a pipeline dedicated to shipping excess North Dakota crude when production continues to fall. There are enough, rail and alternate pipeline routes available to take care of existing production.

A source of protein for vegetarians

Category : Pictures

Meat eaters are often baffled at whether vegetarians can get any reasonable amount of protein.

Here's one "Buckwheat". It contains 22.5 grams of protein, 17g dietary fibre, 3% DV calcium, 21% DV Iron.

Incidentally Buckwheat is known as "Kutu" flour in the Indian subcontinent and is used to make "puris" and used mainly fasting when grains are not allowed.

Boil a fistful, mix it up in your salad and enjoy!

Anju Sharma You get buckwheat flour too. Its not easy to use though... I have posted a recipe for Kutu puri long back in my blog "My experiments with food". Go down to the post on Oct 31st 2015

Let's teach for mastery -- not test scores | Sal Khan
YouTube l https://www.youtube.com/

YES EVERYBODY IS REALLY CREATIVE-YES IT IS IN YOUR DNA:

Excellent TED talk by Sal on the quintessential mastery based concept of learning. He argues that just like you would not build a house without a solid foundation you could not learn something without mastering every step of it.

"In the industrial age, society was a pyramid. At the base of the pyramid, you needed human labor. In the middle of the pyramid, you had an information processing, a bureaucracy class, and at the top of the pyramid, you had your owners of capital and your entrepreneurs and your creative class. But we know what's happening already, as we go into this information revolution. The bottom of that pyramid, automation, is going to take over. Even that middle tier, information processing, that's what computers are good at.

All this new productivity is happening because of this technology, but who participates in it? Is it just going to be that very top of the pyramid, in which case, what does everyone else do? How do they operate? Or do we do something that's more aspirational? Do we actually attempt to invert the pyramid, where you have a large creative class, where almost everyone can participate as an entrepreneur, an artist, as a researcher? "

That's Ariel Garten doing alive demo of meditation. Brings me to think of the Healing Spirit app I have on my phone. The app has the same kind of sound choices--ocean, forest, night etc and tries to get you into a Alpha wave or lo-frequency pattern.

Woo-woo; Whale Magic?

"When you lock eyes with them, Ken Balcomb says, "you get the sense that they're looking at you. It's a steady gaze. And you feel it. Much more powerful than a dog looking at you. A dog might want your attention. The whales, it's a different feeling.

Unfortunately it took "Blackfish" to bring fore the cruel treatment of these wonderful creatures by humans. Hopefully, we will be soon learning from their intelligence.

"When a very young killer whale named Springer mysteriously showed up near Seattle, she had just recently been weaned and her mother had been missing. Ken found her playing with a small floating tree branch, pushing it around. “I picked it up and threw it and she’d go after it, very playful. I started slapping the water and she started slapping the water with her pec fin. Then I looked at her and for some reason I just made a circular motion with my finger, like a ‘roll over’ signal—and she rolled over! I just went, ‘Wow!’ To get a dog to do all that, you have to work on training them to do that trick. I mean; she knew what I had in mind, like her consciousness was just sort-of linked with mine. There are no words for something like that.”
National Geographic.

More: Killer whales, or orcas, have the second-biggest brains among all ocean mammals, weighing as much as 15 pounds. It's not clear whether they are as well-endowed with memory cells as humans, but scientists have found they are amazingly well-wired for sensing and analyzing their watery, three-dimensional environment.
