In honour of the Debussy centenary.
"In a series of mind-bending demos, inventor Mary Lou Jepsen shows how we can use red light to see and stimulate what's inside our bodies and brains. Taking us to the edge of optical physics, Jepsen unveils new technologies that utilize light and sound to track tumors, measure neural activity and could eventually replace the MRI machine with a cheaper, more efficient and wearable system."
After years of taking part in the excellent Scottish Mountain Bike Orienteering (SMBO) races, I have finally
been gently coerced into decided to run one of the events.
The beauty of these events is that, due to the fact that you decide upon your own route, they are suitable for all ages and abilities.
Whether you just fancy a short, easy pootle around some paths and tracks you may never have explored before, or you want to push yourself to the very edge of your abilities at the exciting, highly competitive top end. You can ride as hard and as far as you want.
Also, route choice is more important than pure speed, so if you aren't the fastest rider, you can compete by making good route decisions!
A great video, what can't this man do? A comment on life in America.
Watch the background stuff as well. Still noticing new things after multiple views.
Our power generation systems are constantly working in conjunction to deal with demand and the current weather conditions.
The power stations themselves are also changing, with reducing numbers of coal power stations, new nuclear plants and growth in gas, wind, solar and biomass.
People who argue that wind turbines are terrible because sometime the wind doesn't blow are missing the point. Carbon is the driver of global warming, arguably the biggest threat to human existence. Any time the wind is blowing, less carbon is produced by other methods of generation. Also there's less localised air pollution.

A great video from Barry Godin of his bikepacking adventures over a year.
Dag Aabye is a septuagenarian Ultra Marathon champion who lives completely off the grid.
Bit of a frustrating video. It's interesting but doesn't ask or answer much.
After his success in the best worst film ever made; "The Room" and the "The Disaster Artist," Tommy Wiseau has been publicly campaigning for one of the most iconic roles in the history of film: Batman's eternal nemesis, The Joker.
He seems better at it, the less he's trying to act.
Athlete or Genius? Graeme Obree shot to fame in the early 90s after twice breaking the world hour record on a bike he'd built using parts from an old washing machine.
The debate has never been settled on whether the success of this mercurial Scottish cyclist came from his cycling position or his athleticism. Until now.
An interesting and clever type of single light which can guide a ship depending on the angle at which they view the light.
Here'e the legendary pilot episode for Heat Vision and Jack. An apparent parody of Knight Rider starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Jack Black that never made it past this episode. Written by Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab, directed by Ben Stiller, this series was forgotten about by Fox.
