Philosophy of Programming: Intro to Higher Order Functions

In repl.js and repl_es6.js we can use lodash's Reduce / Foldl function to sum up the values of 1, 2, 3, and 4 to get the value of 10, we can leave out the seed value and still get 10, or we can use a seed value of 100 to get 110.  Likewise in repl.clj we can use the  Reduce  function to sum up the values of 1, 2, 3, and 4 to get again 10, we can also not give a seed value or given it a different value just as before.

Why Does This App Think I’m A Sociopath?

Employees of companies that use DISC assessments typically take a test to determine whether they are, say, an "achiever," a "counselor," a "creative," or an "enthusiast." Crystal instead attempts to match people to these types of profiles based only on publicly available text written by or about them. In order to do so, the startup experimented with beta users who had taken an actual DISC assessment to see which changes in the algorithm brought the app’s results closer to their self-reported DISC assessment results. "You’re not going to find a published paper from an academic somewhere about the theory," D’Agostino says. "It’s really just completely practice."

TED-Ed | Periodic Videos

A lesson about every single element on the periodic table

The price of shame

"Public shaming as a blood sport has to stop," says Monica Lewinsky. In 1998, she says, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become constant — and can turn deadly. In a brave talk, she takes a hard look at our online culture of humiliation, and asks for a different way.

Here's how we take back the Internet

Appearing by telepresence robot, Edward Snowden speaks at TED2014 about surveillance and Internet freedom. The right to data privacy, he suggests, is not a partisan issue, but requires a fundamental rethink of the role of the internet in our lives — and the laws that protect it. "Your rights matter,” he says, "because you never know when you're going to need them." Chris Anderson interviews, with special guest Tim Berners-Lee.

How public spaces make cities work

More than 8 million people are crowded together to live in New York City. What makes it possible? In part, it’s the city’s great public spaces — from tiny pocket parks to long waterfront promenades — where people can stroll and play. Amanda Burden helped plan some of the city’s newest public spaces, drawing on her experience as, surprisingly, an animal behaviorist. She shares the unexpected challenges of planning parks people love — and why it's important.

Why you should really start doing more things alone

"People decide to not do things all the time just because they're alone," said Rebecca Ratner, a professor of marketing at the Robert H. Smith School of Business, who has spent almost half a decade studying why people are so reluctant to have fun on their own and how it may lead to, well, less fun overall. "But the thing is, they would probably be happier going out and doing something."

The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt Review - IGN

The Witcher 3 is as dense and deep as the other two games in the series in terms of RPG mechanics, and the overwhelmingly massive open-world environment has at once made that depth more intimidating, and in the long run, more rewarding. It’s difficult to express just how huge and open this world is: verdant, rolling fields liberally dotted with swaying foliage of every shape and size fill the space between loosely connected, ramshackle townships where people struggle to scrape by. A full day/night cycle and dynamic weather pull it all together, cementing The Witcher 3’s landscape as one of the most authentic-feeling open worlds I’ve ever seen. A handy minimap points you where you want to go, which might seem like a crutch, but honestly, without it, I’d have been hopelessly lost. That a world this size still feels so purposeful, and full of things to do is quite an achievement.

Amy Poehler Is Really Making Herself Uncomfortable

Many of Poehler’s producing projects involve emerging female talent. "It’s selfish," she insists. "I just like working with women." But many fans see her as a feminist activist, changing the world one laugh line at a time. "She never apologizes for being a woman, and always does things exactly the way she wants," says Lyonne. "It’s just her way of existing. And it trickles down into all her projects, like helping all these young female comedians." And not just comedians. Poehler and friends Meredith Walker and Amy Miles launched a digital series in 2008 to boost young girls’ confidence (in every episode, Poehler talks to a regular girl with a unique interest or ability, always ending the interview with an impromptu happy dance). Smart Girls at the Party, as the show was called, was first on YouTube in 2012 as part of Google’s Original Channels Initiative. It eventually became an expanded website renamed and was bought by Legendary Entertainment last October. It currently has about 5 million viewers and nearly a million likes on Facebook.

If you can grow your own organic food then go ahead and do it. The more you demand organic food there will be more of a supply and the prices will come down! You have a choice! Poor doesn't mean you cannot think. You sill have a choice if you want to grow your own even if you are poor.

Highways gutted American cities. So why did they build them?

The 48,000 miles of interstate highway that would be paved across the country during the 1950s, '60s, and '70s were a godsend for many rural communities. But those highways also gutted many cities, with whole neighborhoods torn down or isolated by huge interchanges and wide ribbons of asphalt. Wealthier residents fled to the suburbs, using the highways to commute back in by car. That drained the cities' tax bases and hastened their decline.

The voices in my head

To all appearances, Eleanor Longden was just like every other student, heading to college full of promise and without a care in the world. That was until the voices in her head started talking. Initially innocuous, these internal narrators became increasingly antagonistic and dictatorial, turning her life into a living nightmare. Diagnosed with schizophrenia, hospitalized, drugged, Longden was discarded by a system that didn't know how to help her. Longden tells the moving tale of her years-long journey back to mental health, and makes the case that it was through learning to listen to her voices that she was able to survive.

California Senate votes to end the personal-belief vaccine waiver

More than 13,500 kindergartners in the state have obtained waivers based on their parents' personal beliefs (the belief that vaccines are unsafe, for instance). If the bill becomes law, children will have to be vaccinated before they start attending kindergarten. But unvaccinated children who are already in school because of a personal-belief waiver won't be required to get shots until they reach the seventh grade or until they move to a different school district. The only exemption that will remain is one based on medical problems — problems that include a weak immune system — which will have to be checked out by a verified physician.

This Dutch City Has an Unusual Approach to Flood Control

The people of Nijmegen aren’t taking their good luck for granted. With climate change expected to bring more intense storms like the one in 1995 (and a previous one in 1993), the city is embarking on a massive flood-control project. That may be expected in the Netherlands, a low-lying country where most homes are built behind protective dikes (There’s a saying here that “God created the world and the Dutch created Holland”). But even here, the approach underway in Nijmegen is unusual, and filled with ideas that river cities anywhere can learn from.

Life that doesn't end with death

In Tana Toraja, weddings and births aren’t the social gatherings that knit society together. In this part of Indonesia, big, raucous funerals form the center of social life. Anthropologist Kelli Swazey takes a look at this culture, in which the bodies of dead relatives are cared for even years after they have passed. While it sounds strange to Western sensibilities, she says, this could actually be a truer reflection of the fact that relationships with loved ones don’t simply end when breathing does. (Filmed at TEDMED.)

Does the media have a "duty of care"?

In this thoughtful talk, David Puttnam asks a big question about the media: Does it have a moral imperative to create informed citizens, to support democracy? His solution for ensuring media responsibility is bold, and you might not agree. But it's certainly a question worth asking ... (Filmed at TEDxHousesofParliament.)

9 Insane Mad Max Characters That We Love - IGN

While the Mad Max movies may be best known for their high-speed car chases and crazy stunt work, another hugely important part of the series' idiosyncratic identity is the completely wacko array of characters that drift in and out of Max's world. The freaks who inhabit the post-civilization Wasteland are as colorful as they are outlandish, and with each successive film in the series they only become more bizarre (flamethrower-guitar guy, anyone?).

LG Watch Urbane reviewed: The dressiest new smartwatch

It's pretty cool -- I looked up local restaurants from my wrist even with my phone in another part of the office, on another Wi-Fi network. But then I tried going to Starbucks across the street, where I saved the Wi-Fi network on my watch, and had no luck. No surprise, right? Starbucks requires a pop-up log-in before getting online (aka a "captive portal"), something a watch can't accomplish. But that also means the Urbane (or any Android Wear Wi-Fi enabled watch) wouldn't be all that great for logging in on the go without a phone -- at your trusted Wi-Fi location -- if you were even inclined to be that sort of person anyway.

Cursed Warship Revealed With Treasure Onboard

With funding from the National Geographic Society/Waitt Grants Program, they are working this summer to complete their scans of the entire ship.

What the gay rights movement learned from the civil rights movement

As a member of both the African American and LGBT communities, filmmaker Yoruba Richen is fascinated with the overlaps and tensions between the gay rights and the civil rights movements. She explores how the two struggles intertwine and propel each other forward — and, in an unmissable argument, she dispels a myth about their points of conflict. A powerful reminder that we all have a stake in equality.

What Is Generation Z, And What Does It Want?

Our brains are becoming more attention deficient mainly because of all of the chemicals and toxins that are added to our food and water by the corporations that run the world.. Parts of the brain also start to literally shut down as we stare into screens for more than a few minutes. It's not a filter, it's brain damage. There are also hormone disrupting chemicals in our food, water, and plastic, which can alter someone's hormonal balance.. This is just one of the many ways that the elite are successfully accomplishing their gay agenda.. and turning us all against each other. They also use Hollywood, TV and corporate 'news' to subtly brainwash all of us.. They have turned men versus women, husband vs wife, black vs white, gay vs straight, false religion vs real spirituality with our Creator and His Son.. all of this is to push their luciferian agenda.. and divide and conquer all of us. Don't be fooled by the great deception! Learn the truth:

Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster PS4 Review - IGN

The first thing I noticed was the visual upgrade to NPCs and enemies. Blocky PlayStation 2-era textures still present in the PS3/Vita Remaster have been rounded out on the PS4 version, bringing them more in line with the heroes’ smooth contours. The next thing I noticed is the additional color and detail added to all of the character models, including the main characters: I could see the tiniest swirls on Wakka’s vibrantly blue headband in FFX, and I dug how bright Yuna's earring tassel is in FFX-2.

A new way to grow bone

What does it take to regrow bone in mass quantities? Typical bone regeneration — wherein bone is taken from a patient’s hip and grafted onto damaged bone elsewhere in the body — is limited and can cause great pain just a few years after operation. In an informative talk, Molly Stevens introduces a new stem cell application that harnesses bone’s innate ability to regenerate and produces vast quantities of bone tissue painlessly.

Peek Inside The Gorgeous Notebooks Of Professional Soccer Broadcasters

Surprisingly, Barnes tells the soccer magazine Eight by Eight that he rarely refers to these notes during broadcast. Instead, they’re a "crutch" in case he needs them. And assembled en masse, they serve as a journal of his career. "If I was a newspaper reporter, I could keep my match reports," he tells the magazine, "but radio is transient, so my notebook is my personal record of the matches I cover."

The deadly genius of drug cartels

Up to 100,000 people died in drug-related violence in Mexico in the last 6 years. We might think this has nothing to do with us, but in fact we are all complicit, says Yale professor Rodrigo Canales in this unflinching talk that turns conventional wisdom about drug cartels on its head. The carnage is not about faceless, ignorant goons mindlessly killing each other but is rather the result of some seriously sophisticated brand management.

iPhone 6s could be Apple's biggest 'incremental' upgrade ever

Hmm… Like I said Bro. I’ll have to see it to believe it, because having all these are nice, I guest but its not what Microsoft needs most. They horribly need some good mind share back. Because Windows 8 has done allot of damage to Microsoft’s image. Most consumers don’t know what a Lumia is, and wont touch it with a ten foot pole. And, as for developers porting Apps. That will be an insanely big uphill battle. Microsoft was paying developers to port over Apps, and they still didn’t. Because having billions of users wont necessarily make a platform profitable for developers. Android is experiencing this right now.

How I fell in love with a fish

With impeccable research and deadpan humor, he chronicles his pursuit of a sustainable fish he could love, and the foodie's honeymoon he's enjoyed since discovering an outrageously delicious fish raised using a revolutionary farming method in Spain.

What happens when our computers get smarter than we are?

Artificial intelligence is getting smarter by leaps and bounds — within this century, research suggests, a computer AI could be as "smart" as a human being. And then, says Nick Bostrom, it will overtake us: "Machine intelligence is the last invention that humanity will ever need to make." A philosopher and technologist, Bostrom asks us to think hard about the world we're building right now, driven by thinking machines. Will our smart machines help to preserve humanity and our values — or will they have values of their own?

Schools that ban mobile phones see better academic results

The effect of banning mobile phones from school premises adds up to the equivalent of an extra week’s schooling over a pupil’s academic year, according to research by Louis-Philippe Beland and Richard Murphy, published by the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics.

7 Habits Of People Who Are Happy At Work

While they strive for more in life, happy people are constantly aware of all the reasons they have to be grateful. They express their gratitude freely and openly, and are quick to offer thanks to those who help them or do a kind deed. This attitude of gratitude attracts people to the positive energy that they give off. Colleagues want to be around them and work with them. When things are not going well, they choose to focus on all of the things that have gone well in their lives.

What Killed The Infographic?

Infographics, it seems, are a dying breed. Except that in talking to a dozen data visualization experts across the world's top studios, I learned that the story is far more nuanced. Once a playground for independent designers, data visualization has evolved into something more mature, corporate, and honest about its failings. The quirky, experimental infographics that once peppered the Internet may be disappearing. But that's only because data visualization, as a medium, has finally grown up and gotten a job. Data visualization has finally grown up and gotten a job.

7 Step Content Creation Strategy for Epic Content Marketing

The groundwork for an epic post needs to be laid over the course of many days, even weeks. In order to prepare for the ideation process, you must ask your team to have a handle on the pulse of your target audience and niche at all times. This can only happen if you and your content team keep abreast of the latest happenings in the niche. Follow thought leaders, keep track of the latest news, trawl through discussion forums, and hunt on social media; basically make every attempt to know all developments in your domain and the kind of information your target audience is looking for.

Welcome to the Age of the Modular Gadget | WIRED

They’ll come in pieces, which you’ll change constantly to suit your every need and whim. Anyone will be able to afford one. It’ll happen first to your phone, then everything else.

Just as Stephen Hawking warned? Here comes 'the world's angriest robot' - CNET

Indeed, Touchpoint CEO Frank van der Velden told the Australian Business Review: "Companies don't have the numbers of staff to go through this manually. It's very difficult. Take a bank for example, they receive a hell of a lot of data every day. But it gets to a point where that dataset grows so large that it becomes meaningless unless you can interpret it. That's where Radiant will fit in."

Muppet Performers Share What It Was Like To Work For Jim Henson

A good boss, like a good teacher, empowers his employees. This, though, is too easy to say and very hard to actually do.

Henson’s wife Jane said he was "so patient she sometimes want[ed] to kick him." The creator of Kermit the Frog had what was indeed a very rare management style.

iPhone 7 concept features a home button built into the screen

Home button on screen with iOS is not possible and/or not practical. How would you go home from an app? This idea basically forces a special area on the screen for the home button that apps won’t be able to utilize like on Android. So it’s wasted screen anyway and you’d be giving up the tactile feedback of having a physical button which I don’t want to give up. I love being able to call up Siri in the car to send a text without taking my eyes off the road. A physical button helps that. I also do not believe you could do this anyway, the TouchID sensor works because it’s reading your finger touch with very high resolution at 500ppi, higher than what the entire iPhone screen reads from touch. To make the whole iPhone screen, or some lower half of it have all that touch resolution ability would probably be very expensive and impractical, all for little to no actual utility. No it just doesn’t justify.
