You can read all about it HERE, and it’s as awesome as it looks and sounds.

From the article:

Made With Code is a new Google initiative to motivate future female programmers. Only 18% of computer science degrees are earned by women, and Google is spending $50 million over the next three years to change those numbers.

More than 150 high school girls turned out for the event, including local chapters of the Girl Scouts of the USA, Black Girls Code and Girls Who Code. Kaling, a writer and actress, emceed the premiere, which brought in Google X Vice President Megan Smith, Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton, iLuminate creator Miral Kotb, Pixar Director of Photography Danielle Feinberg and UNICEF Innovation cofounder Erica Kochi.

I feel like this is a good place to add this TedX talk



"So we had to help these people move out of their apartments because the building is being torn down," Gail rambled. "Some of the apartments were abandoned and they just threw those people’s stuff into this huge pile. Like all of their stuff. Things that meant something to people is on it’s way to the dump."

The line was silent for a second. Then Holly asked, “Are you okay, Gail?”

"I just wanted to tell someone about my day," Gail looked up at the ceiling of the locker room. Her voice wavered, "Someone who would listen."

Holly wasn’t sure what to say. Then she did the only thing that felt right, “Do you want to meet me for coffee?”


Chaos Theory and Starling Flocks in Nature.

Chaos theory have many applications in meteorology, sociology, physics, engineering,etc…..Also, Chaotic behavior can also be observed in many natural systems. In a scientific context, the word chaos has a slightly different meaning than it does in its general usage as a state of confusion, lacking any order. Chaos, with reference to chaos theory, refers to an apparent lack of order in a system that nevertheless obeys particular laws or rules. Chaotic behavior can be studied through analysis of a chaotic mathematical model, or through analytical techniques such as recurrence plots and Poincaré maps.

Starling flocks in Nature: When the starlings changes direction, speed, each of the other birds in the flock responds to the change and they do so nearly simultaneously regardless of the size of the flock.  In essence, information moves across the flock very quickly and with nearly no degradation. The researchers describe it as a high signal-to-noise ratio. The starlings are capable of extraordinary collective responses. These masses of birds move so synchronously, swiftly, and gracefully. (Shared from the article by Andrea Alfano)
The flock’ s movement is based on evasive maneuvers. There is safety in numbers, so the individual starlings do not scatter, but rather are able to move as an intelligent cloud, fainting away from a diving raptor, thousands of birds changing direction almost simultaneously and move in union.

Sums up my relationship with pizza quite nicely



If you don’t have Felicia Day seductively eating pizza on your blog, you aren’t blogging right.
