  7. "The name "Pendle Hill" combines the words for hill from three different languages (as does Bredon Hill in Worcestershire) In the 13th century it was called Pennul or Penhul, apparently from the Cumbric pen and Old English hyll, both meaning "hill". The modern English "hill" was appended later, after the original meaning of Pendle had become opaque."

  11. Yikes. I remember this happening but didn't see this writeup until now.
  12. "What does this all mean? In terms of temperature and dilution, your style of shaking and the ice you use probably doesn’t matter. The length of time you shake probably doesn’t matter. All of these are probably vitally important to the texture and look of the drink. Eben put it best when he said that these results should set you free to develop your own style of shaking because you no longer need to worry about time and temperature."
  13. Consultancy run by James Vasile and Karl Fogel.
  14. Seems like caffeine itself is basically not bad for kids beyond obvious stuff like keeping them from sleeping, suppressing appetite, coming in drinks with tons of sugar, etc.
  15. "The fate of physical books may seem tenuous, but at least 1,000 copies of 100 different books are set to be printed roughly a century from now, in the year 2114. Indeed, the trees that will be used to make the printing paper have already been planted."
  16. "FreeOTP is a two-factor authentication application for systems utilizing one-time password protocols. Tokens can be added easily by scanning a QR code."

  18. "The correlations were much lower between Mendeley readers and citation counts for conference papers than for journal articles in Building & Construction Engineering and Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering. Hence, there seem to be disciplinary differences in the usefulness of Mendeley readership counts as impact indicators for conference papers, even between fields for which conferences are important."
  19. Saw this paper at CHI. Pretty awesome although not entire sure what this is good for.

  21. The now iconic Bluetooth logo is actually a combination—officially known as a bind rune—of King Bluetooth's initials in Scandinavian runes: ᚼ and ᛒ. When you join the two to make a bind rune and drop it on a blue background, you get the familiar Bluetooth logo.

  25. "Proofs of obscure provenance are sometimes overlooked at first, but usually not for long: A major paper like Royen’s would normally get submitted and published somewhere like the Annals of Statistics, experts said, and then everybody would hear about it. But Royen, not having a career to advance, chose to skip the slow and often demanding peer-review process typical of top journals. He opted instead for quick publication in the Far East Journal of Theoretical Statistics, a periodical based in Allahabad, India, that was largely unknown to experts and which, on its website, rather suspiciously listed Royen as an editor. (He had agreed to join the editorial board the year before.)"
  26. Very basic introduction to wine.
  27. "The difference between these types of dry yeast is simple: active dry yeast has a larger granule and needs to be dissolved in water before using, while instant yeast has a more fine texture and can be mixed right into dry ingredients."
