Norwegian students blow U.S. algebra record away with 5 million equations
Yahoo News - about 3 years
Norwegian students solved nearly 5 million algebra equations in a week long challenge, using an app aimed at popularizing mathematics among children whose maths skills have been steadily sliding in international rankings. Students hoped to just beat the previous record of 400,000 equations set by students in Washington state using the Dragonbox app; "This has been a mind-blowing experience for us," Dragonbox co-founder Jean Baptiste Huynh said as the competition came to an end on Wednesday. Norwegian students were ranked 30th in the 2012 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), a big drop from 21st just three years earlier.

Vintage Champagne displays a serious side
San Francisco Chronicle - about 3 years
Some is about connoisseurship, as with the vintage Clos des Goisses from Philipponnat, one of Champagne's most dramatic and long-lived wines, or the often exquisite Special Club bottlings made by about 25 producers. If vintage dating was once significantly leveraged as a marketing conceit, there's now a growing roster of more serious and extraordinary, if still little known, vintage wine emerging from Champagne. [...] vintage Champagnes are again achieving what they always should have: displaying a specific view of time and place. The wider appearance of disgorgement dates has allowed some growers' nonvintage bottles to hint at their true identity, often with codes like "V10." [...] it is helping to return the significance of vintage Champagne to its original state: a special bottle, meant to distinguish itself in a special moment. 2004 Paul Bara Bouzy Grand Cru Brut Champagne ($59, 12%): The town of Bouzy, on the Montagne de Reims, is renowned for its muscled Pinot Noir, and Chan ...

It Only Takes About 42 Minutes To Learn Algebra With Video Games
Forbes - over 3 years
On average, it took 41 minutes and 44 seconds for students to master Algebra skills during the Washington State Algebra Challenge using the DragonBox App. The Challenge, co-sponsored by Washington University’s Center for Game Science and the Technology Alliance included 4,192 K-12 students. Together, they solved 390,935 equations over the course of 5 days in early June. According to the Challenge’s calculations, that’s 6 months, 28 days, and 2 hours worth of algebra work. What’s even more impressive, “of those students who played at least 1.5 hours, 92.9% achieved mastery. Of those students who played at least 1 hour, 83.8% achieved mastery. Of those students who played at least 45 minutes, 73.4% achieved mastery.” Why didn’t this exist when I was a kid? I hated algebra. I was terrified of variables. I avoided it at all costs. Now, I find myself playing DragonBox for fun. The original DragonBox app is one thing that initially sparked my enthusiasm for game based learning. Long before I ...

Doug Thomas: Our National Anthem Does Not Represent Me
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Imagine a country that requires 20 per cent of its population to be hypocrites to sing its national anthem. Imagine a country with a national anthem that insults half of its population. Imagine a country with a national anthem that excludes all people not born in the country from its national anthem. Such a country would be hard to imagine, eh? Well, add the notion that the country holds itself up as a world-class example of equality and multiculturalism and try to imagine that. Nevertheless, this country exists. Every wintry week, a large percentage of the population tunes in to what it calls its national winter sport and listens to that national anthem. Every two years its citizens anticipate the playing of that national anthem at least a few times at the Olympics and love to hear it while the American women's hockey team listens in envy. By now you have probably figured out that the country is not imaginary, even though it is sometimes called the Disneyland of coun ...

Jean-Baptiste Stuchlik: Is the International Day of Happiness a Happy Initiative?
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
The United Nations recognized March 20 as the day for celebrating and reflecting on happiness. On the face of it, the idea of an international institution intending to "make us happy" seemed inauspicious. As it turns out, this worldwide day of happiness may well be a happy initiative. In its World Happiness Report, the U.N. does not merely make innocuous recommendations based on sweeping macro-economic observations. It particularly proposes fairly unexpected, concrete and empowering avenues. It appeals to our sense of responsibility and encourages us to work through our current difficulties and not assign undue blame to others. That is, our happiness largely depends on us, our lifestyles, here and now. Growth does not bring happiness, but neither does de-growth Early in its report, the UN notes the damning failure of the GNP-centered approach to happiness. For example, while the GNP of the U.S. has grown three-fold in the last 50 years, Americans do not claim to be happ ...

Illya Szilak: 'Queerskins': A New Multimedia Novel That Looks At The Beginning Of The AIDS Epidemic
Huffington Post - over 4 years
"Then HIV came. Death denuded us all. It stripped away the queer skins of normalcy and perversion. What was left was only human." --Sebastian A. "I'm definitely going to get in trouble for this," I warn, pointing to a picture of Cinderella in gossamer pink gown and tiara. For my new multimedia novel, Queerskins, I'd paired a YouTube video of Disney's "Cinderella Sing-Along" with a sexually explicit passage in which the main character tells his boyfriend that he's in love with him. Cyril Tsiboulski, my Web designer, told me not to worry about it. We were having lunch in SoHo, perusing a multicolored stack of construction paper mockups. Cyril worked with me on my last digital novel, Reconstructing Mayakovsky. Even though he is a highly in-demand Web designer with a successful business, he'd agreed to work almost pro bono on this project. His reasoning: I thought it was a fascinating take on the traditional tale of man-gives-up-earthly-possessions-goes-to-desert ...

Tropical Storm Paul Lingers Off Mexico
Huffington Post - over 4 years
LOS CABOS, Mexico -- Tropical Storm Paul spun northward off the southern half of Mexico's Baja peninsula early Wednesday, after veering away from a landfall on a sparsely populated stretch of coast. Forecasters said the storm could cross the small Vizcaino Desert peninsula that hooks into the Pacific sometime Wednesday afternoon, then turn northwestward and head back out to sea. Paul started Tuesday as a hurricane but it rapidly lost strength as it headed toward Baja, preceded by rains that caused some minor flooding at the peninsula's southern tip. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Paul's maximum sustained winds had decreased to 45 mph (72 kph) early Wednesday. It was moving northwest at 13 mph (20 kph). A tropical storm warning was in effect for the western coast from Santa Fe north to El Pocito and in the east from San Evaristo to Bahia San Juan Bautista. In the Atlantic, Hurricane Rafael buffeted Bermuda with wind and rain while it stayed out to ...

Hurricane Paul weakening as it races toward Baja
Fox News - over 4 years
Hurricane Paul was weakening rapidly and was "barely a hurricane" as it raced toward landfall Tuesday on a sparsely populated stretch of Mexico's southern Baja peninsula. Still, civil protections authorities in the Gulf of California city of Mulege decided to begin evacuating families in vulnerable areas or flimsy housing, and army and navy units were on hand for emergencies and disaster relief. Authorities in the flood-prone city of Ciudad Constitution opened 26 shelters for local residents, and residents were advised to stay inside, stock up on drinking water and avoid panic. Steady rain hit Cabo San Lucas on the southern tip of the peninsula, swamping some neighborhoods and leaving drivers stranded on flooded roads. "It's probably going to reach land as a minimal hurricane," Lixion Avila, a hurricane specialist the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami, adding that once it moves inland over the peninsula's rough terrain, it will pro ...
