Round up of things I found interesting.
The image above came from a Sciencenews article and it is possibly the first predator.
As a big fan of diet soda, I'm not happy to hear the bad news on aspartame. On the other hand "The ruling does not mean you need to stop consuming all aspartame-containing products, nor does it change the acceptable daily intake put forth by the World Health Organization (WHO). In a separate ruling released at the same time, the Joint Food and Agriculture Organization/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), which evaluates the levels of exposure to food additives that pose a risk, found there was no convincing evidence for harm with aspartame consumption below the current acceptable daily intake limit of 40 milligrams per kilogram of body weight. That limit was established by JECFA in 1981. For a 70-kilogram (155-pound) person, it’s equivalent to about 14.5 cans of Diet Coke."
This video shows 40 years of Boston Dynamics progress. It shows that 40 years of incremental progress really adds up.
I liked season 1 of Foundation, and I'm looking forward to Foundation season 2.
