Cubie, post-Offworld

The following post was originally meant for Offworld, but, well, you know. It’s sad to see it end as a its own entity — it’s subsumed into the cluttered new Boing Boing design — and I’m not saying that as someone who occasionally contributed. I was a fan long before my first post there. That… Read more »

OMY – “Volley” I randomly* came across the above video from OMY (quaint, out of date website), “Oriental Magnetic Yellow”, yesterday. The mid 90s homage-band, if there is such a term, to YMO, “Yellow Magic Orchestra”, is interesting because it consisted entirely of Japanese videogame music veterans, all of whom worked at Namco: Nobuyoshi Sano,… Read more »

Knights of Charlemagne

Right from the start, Reiner Kniza’s “Knights of Charlemagne” is in my good graces. It does something that all apps in the App Store should do: it doesn’t mute my music on start. I have an iPod Touch and an iPod is primarily, above all else, a music player. If it’s on, chances are it’s… Read more »

As Andy Baio has announced, Kickstarter has launched. It’s a cool little venture. Basically, it lets a creator set a funding goal for a potential project and crowd-sources the investment for it by offering rewards to backers that pledge certain amounts. In a way, it’s kind of like PBS pledge drives, mixed with Dropcash, mixed… Read more »

Unity and the Future of Browser-Based Games

Examples of fungicides include hexachlorobenzene, organomercurials, pentachlorophenol, phthalimides, and dithiocarbamates. Do not use fungicides developed for outdoor use in any indoor application, as they can be extremely toxic to animals and humans in an enclosed environment. When you use biocides as a disinfectant or a pesticide, or as a fungicide, you should use appropriate PPE, including respirators. This section presents remediation guidelines for building materials that have or are likely to have mold growth. The guidelines are designed to protect the health of cleanup personnel and other workers during remediation. Urologic examinations usually do not reveal a specific etiology for urethritis. A four-glass Meares-Stamey lower-urinary-tract localization procedure (or four-glass test) might be helpful in localizing pathogens to the prostate ( 255). WBCs per high-power field were detected in expressed prostatic secretions ( 256). Referral to a urologist should be considered for men who experience pain for more than 3 months within a 6-month period. Gonococcal urethritis, chlamydial urethritis, and nongonococcal, nonchlamydial urethritis might facilitate HIV transmission. In short, artificial life is central to our attempts to understand who we are. A display of two outflow water clocks from the Ancient Agora Museum in Athens.

This ensures I remain in touch with the realities of frontline practice and helps me deliver my civil service role and retain clinical credibility. I remain an active researcher, teacher and lecturer on subjects such finasteride as falls and bone health, health services for older people, age discrimination and healthcare ethics and law. I am excited to see how increasingly healthcare is harnessing this astonishing potential for healing. I have always wondered how unhappiness gets into the cells, and why exercise, meditation and a healthy diet impact so powerfully on mood and morbidity..

Those identifying solely as American Indian or Alaska Native comprise less than 1 percent of the US population. Most American Indians live in western states, including California, Arizona, New Mexico, South Dakota, Alaska, and Montana, with 42 percent of this population residing in rural areas, compared to 23 percent of whites. For the purposes of this paper, the following terms will refer to this population: American Indian, Native people, and indigenous people. The number of American Indians living on reservations and trust lands (areas with boundaries established by treaty, statute, and executive or court order) has decreased tremendously in the past few decades.

Back in 2000, if you wanted to create rich media for the internet you had two choices: Macromedia’s Flash and Macromedia’s Director. Director, which produced Shockwave files, was the more powerful of the two: far faster, capable of pixel level manipulation, and with a proper (if weird) scripting language in Lingo. Proper Actionscript, which showed… Read more »

DigiPen and I

No, I never did go to the DigiPen Institute of Technology, but I had considered it. I remember reading an article about the school back in the mid 1990s, not long after it opened, in either Nintendo Power or EGM. It was mind-blowing for me at the time: I can do post-secondary education at a… Read more »
