A straight proof of a curious cubic identity

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 2 minutes ago
Steve McIntyre retweeted a fun tweet by a statistics professor with three surprising identities:\[ \begin{align} 1^3 + 5^3 + 3^3 &= 153\\ 16^3 + 50^3 + 33^3 &= 16\,50\,33\\ 166^3 + 500^3 + 333^3 &= 166,500,333\\ \end{align} \] Yes, you may verify them and check that they work. If you add an arbitrary number of the digits \(6,0,3\) to the appropriate places, the identities will keep on working. Why is it so? If you Google search for \(166,500,333\) and "identity", you will quickly find out that the identity was discussed in a 2007 paper A curious cubic identity and self-similar sum o... more »

Is This Man The Second Most Powerful Person In The World?

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 51 minutes ago
*David Von Drehle, Time*:* Is Steve Bannon the Second Most Powerful Man in the World?* Most modern Presidents chart their opening moves with the help of a friendly think tank or a set of long-held beliefs. Donald Trump's first steps had the feel of a documentary film made by his chief strategist and alter ego Stephen K. Bannon, a director who deploys ravenous sharks, shrieking tornadoes and mushroom clouds as reliably as John Ford shot Monument Valley. Act I of the Trump presidency has been filled with disruption, as promised by Trump and programmed by Bannon, with plenty of res... more »

Turning The Supreme Court Into A Bastion Of Fascism

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 hour ago
PPP released new polling this morning. A *majority* of Americans wish Obama was still president. And where last week, everyone was stunned that 35% of the country were already hoping Trump would be impeached, in just 7 days, that number has already increased to 40%! Only 43% of Americans are glad Trump in president. (The polling didn't ask about it but evidence is that Trump's strongest support comes from the counties with the heaviest prescription drug abuse and opioid addiction. It could be a coincidence... sure it could.) Why so much unhappiness with Trump? Voters think basic... more »

Defining dual-use research: When scientific advances can both help and hurt humanity

It's not always obvious where a new technology will end up. NIH Image Gallery, CC BY-NC Scientific research can change our lives for the better, but it also presents risks – either through deliberate misuse or accident. Think about studying deadly pathogens; that’s how we can learn how to successfully ward them off, but it can be a safety issue too, as when CDC workers were exposed to anthrax in 2014 after an incomplete laboratory procedure left spores of the bacterium alive.

Reports suggest that Trump’s obsession with voter fraud is due to his outrage at losing the popular vote to Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

"A Look to the Heavens"

“Why isn't this ant a big sphere? Planetary nebula Mz3 is being cast off by a star similar to our Sun that is, surely, round. Why then would the gas that is streaming away create an ant-shaped nebula that is distinctly not round? *Click image for larger size.* Clues might include the high 1000-kilometer per second speed of the expelled gas, the light-year long length of the structure, and the magnetism of the star visible above at the nebula's center. One possible answer is that Mz3 is hiding a second, dimmer star that orbits close in to the bright star. A competing hypothesis holds... more »

Chet Raymo, “Out Of The Silence”

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
*“Out Of The Silence”* by Chet Raymo "A few words about Douglas Christe's “The Blue Sapphire of the Mind: Notes for a Contemplative Ecology”, the title of which is drawn from the 4th-century monastic writer Evagrius of Pontus: "When the mind has put off the old self and shall put on the one born of grace, then it will see its own state in the time of prayer resembling sapphire or the color of heaven." It is a beautiful image, although I am not at all sure what it means. We are separated from Evagrius by centuries, by a Scientific Revolution, by the Enlightenment. I am not suggestin... more »

The Poet: Rainier Maria Rilke, "The Swan"

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
*"The Swan"* “This laboring through what is still undone, as though, legs bound, we hobbled along the way, is like the awkward walking of the swan. And dying- to let go, no longer feel the solid ground we stand on every day- is like his anxious letting himself fall into the water, which receives him gently and which, as though with reverence and joy, draws back past him in streams on either side; while, infinitely silent and aware, in his full majesty and ever more indifferent, he condescends to glide.” - Rainier Maria Rilke

Philippine Communist Rebels To End Their Ceasefire On February 10

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 1 day ago
*Reuters*:* Philippines communist rebels end ceasefire but still support peace talks* The Maoist-led rebel group in the Philippines said on Wednesday it was terminating a unilateral ceasefire it declared five months ago and resuming a protracted guerrilla warfare that has killed tens of thousands of people. The New People's Army said in a statement that the ceasefire agreed to last August would expire on Feb. 10, but added the rebels would still support peace talks with the government of President Rodrigo Duterte. "In our experience and in the experience of other peoples, it is po... more »

Allan Gotthelf on Ayn Rand’s Theory of Concepts

Anoop Verma at For The New Intellectual - 1 day ago
To celebrate Ayn Rand’s birthday (2 February 1905) here’s a good quote from Allan Gotthelf on Ayn Rand’s unique achievement, her theory of concepts: The nature and formation of a concept depends in part on *reality* (for instance, mind-independent commensurability and causal relationships) and in part on *the requirements of a conceptual consciousness* (for instance, the need to integrate via measurement-omission and the need of unit-economy). Concepts, then, are neither products of subjective conscious choices, as nominalism claims, nor intuitive grasps of *intrinsic* universals o... more »

The Economy: “Peril in the Casino”

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
*“Peril in the Casino”* by David Stockman "Donald Trump was out in full force two nights ago, pugnaciously performing his appointed historical function. That is, firing the acting heads of the Justice Department and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) on behalf of "safe borders," thereby fueling a fractious debate that will soon paralyze the Imperial City. Indeed, Trump's whole "safe borders" agenda strikes an opening mortal blow against the White House's still incoherent plans for economic stimulus. That's because this campaign will generate the kind of crisis atmosphere and... more »

How to fall in love with traffic jams

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 1 day ago
A few traditional Auckland traffic jams didn’t disturb last night’s Auckland Liberty on the Rocks in Mt Eden, where we enjoyed a fascinating discussion led by Adriano Melo talking about Brazil’s journey into political darkness -- and also his own personal journey from Brazil to New Zealand, and from Marxism to discovering Ayn Rand. His observation last night that I enjoyed most was of how his own personal disposition changed as he dispensed with his Marxism, and read more of Rand. As a committed Marxist, one who actively recruited for the cause (so many souls recruited into dar... more »

Pentagon's Inspector General: White House Did Not Manipulate Islamic State Intelligence

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 1 day ago
*The Hill:* *Pentagon watchdog: No evidence Obama admin manipulated ISIS intel* An internal investigation by the Defense Department has found that senior military officials at U.S. Central Command did not falsify, manipulate or distort intelligence to provide an unrealistically rosy picture of the United States’ fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. An inspector general’s report, released Wednesday morning, reached the opposite conclusion of a House Republican task force, which last year determined that final intelligence assessments out of the Pentagon differed from... more »

*“Does Trump’s Travel Ban Make Sense?”* by Bill Bonner "Thank God for the travel ban! Since the 1950s, roughly 1,000,000 people have been murdered in the US, including 2,996 killed on 9/11 by terrorists. We don’t need any more killers in the US; we’ve got plenty already. But wait… You say that native-born Americans are five times more likely to be killers than refugee immigrants? You say the travel ban did not cover the countries- most notably Saudi Arabia- that supplied the 9/11 terrorists? (Note that Mr. Bonner said "supplied"; he doesn't mention the actual "doers", or the traito... more »

The Economy: "The Ice-Nine Lockdown"

*"The Ice-Nine Lockdown"* by Jim Rickards "I am often asked, ‘Does Ice-Nine put gold at risk of lockdown or confiscation?’ First, Ice-Nine is a phrase borrowed from author Kurt Vonnegut. Vonnegut wrote a book in the early 1960s called "Cat’s Cradle," and it’s a doomsday scenario. In "Cat’s Cradle," a doomsday machine is created. Scientists discovered a molecule called Ice-Nine, very similar to water (H2O), with two differences. Number one, it has a melting point of 45 degrees Celsius, which means it’s frozen at room temperature. The other characteristic is that if a molecule of Ice... more »
