  • The answer to the refugee crisis? A return to European ideals.

    Nils Muižnieks
    2 Sep 2015 | 5:36 am
    The refugee crisis is symbolic of the political crisis in Europe. To avoid systemic collapse, Europe must return to solidarity and protecting those fleeing war and persecution. Migrants cross the border into Hungary. Noticias Cuyo/Flickr. All rights reservedFor many years European countries have been warned about the inadequacy of their immigration and asylum systems. Now, with increased refugee arrivals and more frequent tragedies, this system is showing all its weaknesses. The cause of this collapse is not, however, the arrival of refugees in Europe. The real reason is political.

Flickr/Bob Peters. Some rights reserved.Commentators across the political spectrum have finally found something they can agree on: Jeremy Corbyn is unelectable.

  • Those Killer Robots

    1 Sep 2015 | 5:56 am
    The word ‘Robot’ to signify a self-aware machine with the capacity to destroy humans was first coined in 1920 by the Czech playwright Karel Capek in his play Rossum’s Universal Robots (RUR) where these non human entities destroy humans and take over the world. These artificial constructs not only had intelligence but also could outlive humans.  Interestingly this point was first raised by Thomas Jefferson when commenting on the 14th amendment of the U.S.constitution, which gave corporations the same legal rights as humans.  He suggested explicit language to govern corporate entities,…

    We like to admit that we’ve moved past that and are moving forward but conflict scars a nation in ways that can’t always be healed. Our places are beautiful – sea, lagoon, river, forest, mountain – but our spaces are hurt – bombs, bullets, mortar, shells, fire. Our land will change with each coming rain, with water constantly on the move and leaves growing through and over the damage left by man. Brick and plaster won’t; someone will tend to their wounds, bandaging them or leaving them open for curious eyes, but they will remain marked. The Public Library, Jaffna To be honest, if…

  • NASA says west coast sea levels could be poised to rise

    bp@coastsider.com
    28 Aug 2015 | 11:50 pm
    KQED reports that the west coast has gotten off easy on sea level rise so far, but that may be about to change. “In the next five or ten years, I think the west coast of the United States is going to catch up,” says Josh Willis, a climate scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena. He says a major ocean phase known as the Pacific Decadal Oscillation is in the midst of a big shift. For about the past two decades, the PDO, which Willis describes as “El Niño’s bigger, slower, brother,” was “piling up” warmer water on the far side of the ocean, exacerbating sea rise…

I think it can either mean “unpleasant brightness” in the case of the LED’s or it can mean “too much scattered light” in the case of the existing lights with diffusers. My observations: 1. The LED lights are much…

    There are more sharks than you might think in San Francisco Bay. When most people look out on the muddy waters of the San Francisco Bay they don’t think of what lies underneath. They notice the large ferries, yachts, and cargo ships that crisscross its waters every single day, but nothing else. Those brown, turbid waters hold many secrets and many amazing animals. Among these amazing animals are sharks. No, not the giant, toothy menaces that everyone conjures up when the word “shark” is mentioned. I am talking about the more common, uncharismatic species that inhabit the San Francisco…
