La gran película americana del cine indie se ha rodado durante 12 años

Submitted by nitdia at 2014-05-10 14:51:29 UTC

Boyhood, parte de una idea de producción todavía más radical, imposible de asumir para cualquier gran estudio: rodar con el mismo equipo durante 12 años y así contar, de manera cronológica, una historia de crecimiento, probablemente —dicen los críticos americanos que ya la han visto en festivales; el estreno en Estados Unidos no será hasta el mes de julio— una de las películas más importantes jamás hechas sobre el proceso de avanzar en los primeros años de la vida y el abandono de la niñez para entrar en la adolescencia y la primera madurez. more

5 Reasons the English Language Makes No Freaking Sense

Submitted by par at 2013-11-28 23:32:39 UTC

As much as we might judge people for their bad spelling, the truth is that English spelling doesn't make any goddamn sense. Just look at that sentence: Why is there an "n" but no "n" sound in "goddamn"? It turns out there's one perfectly good reason for that and many other eccentricities of the language, and that one good reason is actually a bunch of stupid reasons that are all shitty and terrible.

Robots at Work and Play

Submitted by oriol at 2013-10-22 22:15:58 UTC

Advancements in robotics are continually taking place in the fields of space exploration, health care, public safety, entertainment, defense, and more. These machines -- some fully autonomous, some requiring human input -- extend our grasp, enhance our capabilities, and travel as our surrogates to places too dangerous or difficult for us to go. Gathered here are recent images of robotic technology at the beginning of the 21st century, including robotic insurgents, NASA's Juno spacecraft on its way to Jupiter, and a machine inside an archaeological dig in Mexico. more

Hot spots: Global temperature rise

Submitted by aragorn at 2013-10-11 14:02:33 UTC

On average, global temperatures will exceed historical norms as soon as 2047 and no later than 2069, according to new research by scientists at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. In some places, it will happen a lot sooner: 2020 in Manokwari, Indonesia, and 2023 in Kingston, Jamaica, the researchers predict. For Washington, it will be 2047. If concerted steps are taken to rapidly mitigate carbon dioxide emissions, the warmup will be slowed by decades. more

Why does the human brain create false memories?

Submitted by nitdia at 2013-09-30 23:07:54 UTC

Neuroscientists say that many of our daily memories are falsely reconstructed because our view of the world is constantly changing. A famous experiment carried out by Elizabeth Loftus in 1994 revealed that she was able to convince a quarter of her participants they were once lost in a shopping centre as a child. Another similar experiment in 2002 found that half of the participants were tricked into believing they had taken a hot air balloon ride as a child, simply by showing them doctored photographic "evidence". more
