Not sure who to follow of the US Candidates. Help is at hand with this “candidate picker”, simply answer a few questions saying whether you agree or appose and you'll find out who you should be voting for.
Though of course voting is only open to the US public, so why are we following it so much here.. because the US is all powerful, never forget.
It's not April the 1st, so what's this about a cheese burger in a can. Worse than those “breakfasts in a tin”, this thing is also cooked in the tin. There's no way it looks like the picture when it comes out, the salad had to be added afterwards, you'd hope.
Three hours of MTV from 1983 have turned up on Appelogen site. It's amazing how slow moving it seems today, though at the time it was touted as the latest thing for attention defiant teenagers..
MTV was sponsoring The Police's Synchronicity tour at the time. It also looks like the weekend coming up was Genesis weekend…. it was more AOR than I remember it.
Videos include David Bowie – Modern Love, Prince – Little Red Corvette, The Who – You Better You Bet….. and, er, Quite Riot – Cum On Feel The Noize… yeah, there's a few bands time thankfully forgot and video making was clearly still in it's infancy. The adverts are good though, “Dial 01800 – HOT ROCK” …
There's 3 hours of that crazy 1983 MTV television here
The Bow Mods new promotional video for The Beats Still Have It was film at the No One Died club which I help run in London. When we booked the band we didn't know we were going to have the singer strip on stage..
State is a new monthly music magazine giving in-depth coverage of music and popular culture. The magazine, based in Ireland, predominately covers the Irish music scene.
The actual magazine doesn't launch until March, but the website is already up and looks very promising.
I should declare an interest at this point as say the magazine's founder is Phil who I shared best man honors with last Summer. Back then it was all very hush hush, so it's great to see it's finally happening…
For as long as I can remember, this country has gotten itself all worked up
every four years or so trying to pick just the right person to be in charge of
the executive branch. It's always a mess, and it always turns out the same way:
We elect a president, and everything goes to pot… http://www.theonion.com/content/node/56423
Harvard University mathematician Scott Kominers does the maths on when to give up waiting on a bus, or whether to walk to next bus stop…
In this recreational mathematics note, we address a simple, yet instructive
question: Justin has to travel a distance of d miles along a bus route. Along this
route, there are n bus stops i, each spaced at a distance of d_i from the
starting point. At each bus stop, Justin is faced with a choice: to walk or to
wait. If he walks on, he can still catch a bus at the next bus stop–but if a
bus passes him while he walks, he is almost assured a longer wait.
We model Justin's decision constraint and completely solve the model in a
special case. The answer is intuitive: the optimal strategy is the laziest.
