WordNet is a semantic lexicon for the English language. It groups English words into sets of synonyms called synsets, provides short, general definitions, and records the various semantic relations between these synonym sets.

The Suggested Upper Merged Ontology or SUMO is an upper ontology intended as a foundation ontology for a variety of computer information processing systems. It was originally developed by the Teknowledge Corporation and now is maintained by Articulate Software. It is one candidate for the "standard upper ontology" that IEEE working group 1600.1 is working on. It can be downloaded and used freely.

SUMO was first released in December 2000. It defines a hierarchy of SUMO classes and related rules and relationships. These are formulated in a version of the language SUO-KIF which has a LISP-like syntax. A mapping from WordNet synsets for nouns and verbs to SUMO classes has also been defined.

what if it is habited?

Using the ESO 3.6-m telescope, a team of Swiss, French and Portuguese scientists discovered a super-Earth about 5 times the mass of the Earth that orbits a red dwarf, already known to harbour a Neptune-mass planet. The astronomers have also strong evidence for the presence of a third planet with a mass about 8 Earth masses.

We have estimated that the mean temperature of this super-Earth lies between 0 and 40 degrees Celsius, and water would thus be liquid,” explains Stéphane Udry, from the Geneva Observatory (Switzerland) and lead-author of the paper reporting the result. “Moreover, its radius should be only 1.5 times the Earth’s radius, and models predict that the planet should be either rocky – like our Earth – or fully covered with oceans,” he adds.

Artist's impression of the planetary system around the red dwarf Gliese 581. Using the instrument HARPS on the ESO 3.6-m telescope, astronomers have uncovered 3 planets, all of relative low-mass: 5, 8 and 15 Earth masses. The five Earth-mass planet (seen in foreground - Gliese 581 c) makes a full orbit around the star in 13 days, the other two in 5 (the blue, Neptunian-like planet - Gliese 581 b) and 84 days (the most remote one, Gliese 581 d). (c) ESO

SETI Institute scientists Seth Shostak, Jill Tarter, and Frank Drake have all expressed their excitement about the news and the implications for SETI searching.  Gliese 581 has been targeted for SETI searches twice in the past with no hint of a radio signal, but this new information may mean a third search with the more powerful Allen Telescope Array.

why do we have to die?

“the tissues of brain and heart suffer irreversible damage from lack of oxygen. This process was understood to begin after just four or five minutes. If the patient doesn't receive cardiopulmonary resuscitation within that time, and if his heart can't be restarted soon thereafter, he is unlikely to recover.

That dogma went unquestioned until researchers actually looked at oxygen-starved heart cells under a microscope.

What they saw amazed them, . “After one hour, we couldn't see evidence the cells had died. We thought we'd done something wrong.” In fact, cells cut off from their blood supply died only hours later.But if the cells are still alive, why can't doctors revive someone who has been dead for an hour?

Because once the cells have been without oxygen for more than five minutes, they die when their oxygen supply is resumed.

“It looks to us,” says Becker, “as if the cellular surveillance mechanism cannot tell the difference between a cancer cell and a cell being rep

erfused with oxygen. Something throws the switch that makes the cell die.”

With this realization came another: that standard emergency-room procedure has it exactly backward. When someone collapses on the street of cardiac arrest, if he's lucky he will receive immediate CPR, maintaining circulation until he can be revived in the hospital. But the rest will have gone 10 or 15 minutes or more without a heartbeat by the time they reach the emergency department. And then what happens? “We give them oxygen,” Becker says. “We jolt the heart with the paddles, we pump in epinephrine to force it to beat, so it's taking up more oxygen.” Blood-starved heart muscle is suddenly flooded with oxygen, precisely the situation that leads to cell death. Instead, Becker says, we should aim to reduce oxygen uptake, slow metabolism and adjust the blood chemistry for gradual and safe reperfusion.

weightlessness, fullness in the head.


“…One feels this strange fullness in the head and this sensation of having a cold, and one sees the puffy look on the faces of his fellow crewmen and hears their nasal voices. He feels his body assume the strange posture that one has in weightlessness, with the shoulders hunched up, the hands out in the front and the knees bent….Closing one’s eyes made everything go away. And now one’s body is like a planet all to itself, and one really doesn’t know where the outside world is. The first time I tried it, my instinct was to grab hold of whatever was nearest and just hang on, lest I fall. It was the only time in the mission when I had anything like a sensation of falling. I was telling that to my wife, and she pointed out that that’s like the reflex that a baby has. When you begin to drop it, it just reaches out and clutches. And we thought, it would be nice to write a story about a sort of evolution of the human being in zero-g, because one certainly gets used to it in a hurry and it certainly is different”

“The very first system that gave us a pleasant surprise was the vestibular system. All of us keep talking about it because not only was it so different from what was expected but it remains, subjectively, one of the primary memories that one gets from this “Alice in Wonderland” world of weightlessness.”


“Our crew was fortunate enough not to run into the motion sickness problem in any clinical or full-blown form. Therefore, among our first pleasant or different impressions was the impression of a very changed relationship between ourselves and the outside world and, I would say there was no vestibular sense of the upright whatsoever. I certainly had no idea of where the Earth was at any time unless I happened to be looking at it. I had no idea of the relationship between one compartment of the spacecraft and another in terms of a feeling for “up or down”; this has some peculiar effects when one passes from one compartment into the other and walls turn into ceilings and ceilings turn into floors in a very arbitrary way. But all one had to do is rotate one’s body to the more familiar orientation and it all comes to right. What one thinks is up, is up. After a few days of getting used to this, one plays with it all the time; one just stands there and does a slow roll around his bellybutton. The feeling is that one could take the whole room and by pushing a button, just rotate it around so that the screens up here would be

the floor. It’s a marvelous feeling of power over space—over the space around one.” “We discovered that after a few days of decreased appetite in flight we were able to eat all our food. Indeed, as the missions progressed the amount of food the crew was allowed to eat increased and their exercise increased, they were essentially eating the same amount of food as they ate on the ground. That to me is a mystery. I still don’t understand how in an environment in which certainly muscular work is reduced, the caloric demand and the relationship between caloric intake and body weight remain just about the same as they do on the ground, I think that’s a very interesting problem that we haven’t yet been able to solve.” A World Without Gravity “…Our sixth sense, the sense of motion, is mediated by the vestibular system. The inner ear contains two balance-sensing organs, both of which are designed to keep the individual upright, orientated, and moving smoothly. One organ, comprised of the saccule and utricle, sends messages to the brain as to how the head is positioned relative to the force of gravity (Fig. The saccule and utricle are tiny sacs, lined with hair cells. Small calcium-carbonate particles, the otoliths, rest on these hair cells. When the head moves relative to gravity, the weight and movement of these otoliths stimulate the hair cells and give the brain information on ‘up’, ‘down’, ‘tilt’ and ‘translation’ in a particular direction. The other balance-sensing organ is comprised of three semicircular canals. It provides the brain with information on rotation about the three axes of yaw, pitch and roll… The question is whether the part of the vestibular system that is sensitive to gravity continues to operate in weightlessness. Head tilt is not sensed by the otoliths in the absence of gravitational force, but they are still activated by the inertial force of translational motion. Experiments performed in space to date, including those using the ESA 4 m-long Sled moving with very low accelerations, have not shown significant changes in sensitivity to linear acceleration during and after space flight. Since the brain receives inputs from the otoliths only when there is a translational head motion in weightlessness, it has been proposed that the brain re-interprets tilt-related otolith information as translation during space flight. This has been the theoretical basis of much space research for the last 15 years. Only recently has this hypothesis actually been tested, using a centrifuge installed onboard the Space Shuttle…”

Harper's Bazaar March 1968 – Figurative by Dan Graham

I had a few old magazines. I was Ebay’ing some of them and someone from Sweden asked a scan from one of the magazines. It’s Harper’s Bazaar magazine and the page has an artwork on it by Dan Graham. It’s an interesting piece, I found a few sources on the web about it:

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Following the “Homes for America” project, Dan Graham created a diverse oeuvre of artwork and theory. He began by using commonly available resources such as advertising, music, and television, to communicate a critical art perspective. One of his most notable examples of this type, is a work titled, “Figurative.” Here Graham documented a strip of paper from a calculator or cash register. The paper has a series of unrelated numbers in a consecutive series. Graham printed the strip of paper next to text that read “Figurative by Dan Graham,” and the work was displayed in an issue of Bazaar magazine in the advertisement section. Here Graham played on the viewers’ expectations for commercial imagery. The intention of the artist seems incomprehensible save for that of provoking the viewer of the magazine into a re-consideration of the validity of mass-produced imagery.

Dan refers to these “magazine pieces” as “clichés”, in the twofold ironic and professional meaning of the term; as sort of “small rock songs”, tied to the clichés of the moment, contextual and (I continue to

credit score range

quote him) ephemeral as the paper dresses conceived by the fashion designers of those times. In the apparently transparent reign of the media, the possible pages of Scheme(1965)/Schema(1966) appear as enigmatic typographical iterations, as puritanical versions of concrete poetry, as Buddhist tautologies, or as inexplicable accidents of pagination causally side by side with a fantastic advert for “bras”, as seen in the “variant” of Scheme called Figurative, published in Harper’s Bazaar in March 1968, in which one can read:

“If nature didn’t, Warner’s will. / Our Comfort Curve™ bra with low-cut sides will do it for $5. Warners®.”

Dan Graham, in For Publication, 1975

This points to a shortcoming of classical Conceptualism. Benjamin Buchloh pointsout that “while it emphasized its universal availability and its potential collectiveaccessibility and underlined its freedom from the determinations of the discursiveand economic framing conventions governing traditional art production and recep-tion, it was, nevertheless, perceived as the most esoteric and elitist artistic mode.”Kosuth’s quotation from Roget’s Thesaurus placed in an Artforum box ad, or DanGraham’s list of numbers laid out in an issue of Harper’s Bazaar, were uses ofmass media to deliver coded propositions to a specialist audience, and the impactof these works, significant and lasting as they were, reverted directly to the rela-tively arcane realm of the art system, which noted these efforts and inscribed themin its histories. Conceptualism’s critique of representation emanated the same man-darin air as did a canvas by Ad Reinhart, and its attempts to create an Art DegreeZero can be seen as a kind of negative virtuosity, perhaps partly attributable to aNew Left skepticism towards pop culture and its generic expressions

evolution quiz.

there is a cool quiz on evolution here:

Also I’ve been listening to this audiobook “A Short History of Nearly Everything” by Bill Bryson repeatedly for weeks now.

Most of the information here is so digestible yet still I tend to forget what I listen most of the time, which is mostly because the audiobook is 15 audio cd’s long and is full of an interesting piece of knowledge interconnected to another events all seamed together.

Narrator was talking about a site found by Louis and Mary Leakey near in Great Rift Vallet in Africa. Olorgesailie. It’s an early human’s tool factory where they produced axes and spears… for a millions years.

Interestingly none of the tools were sharp enough for anything! And this site was active up until 200.000 years ago, starting from 1.5 million years ago.

They have no idea who used the site for what purposes, they haven’t found any skeleton remains around to tell. The stones used were brought from mountains 6 miles away.

Laetoli Footprints

the earliest record of truly bipedal gait. And romantism.

I recognized this piece as soon as I saw it. I cannot confirm the relationship from the description on the burning man site. But I still say it’s a beautiful art piece inspired from an archeological find. Although my hope is that Laetoli footprints are made by a male and his female companion rather than a mother and a child.

by Karen Cusolito and Dan D

The sculpture represents a mother (30' tall) and a child (20' tall), walking side by side through an unspecified time. Their hands are extended toward each other, the mother's over the child's, and from her hand pours a liquid flame. The flame mingles in the child's hand for a moment, then pours into a long pool of fire which flows before them. The hands on the outside of the figures are extended and from each a gentle stream of water pours and collects on either side of their bodies into long reflecting pools which flow forward toward the horizon. From behind each figure trails a series of burning footprints which diminish as they get further from the figures, marking the history of each and the energy they shared with the earth during their passage. The mother's gaze is fixed on the child. The child is looking forward to the horizon, at the future.

Rapist is free to enjoy £7m lottery win
By Jane Mulkerrins
(Filed: 01/04/2005)

A convicted rapist who won £7 million on a Lotto draw while serving his sentence was released from jail last night as the Home Office admitted it could do nothing to prevent him from collecting his windfall.

Iorworth Hoare, who was jailed for life in 1989 after he was found guilty of one rape and two attempted rapes, was released from Shepton Mallet prison in Somerset, prison sources said.

There was a public outcry last August after Hoare, 52, from Leeds, bought the winning Lotto Extra ticket during a day release from priso

David Blunkett, the then Home Secretary, promised that prisoners would be banned from benefiting from lottery wins while in jail. He also said he would look at whether a “substantial slice of the winnings” could go to a victims' fund.

A spokesman for the Home Office said last night that no measures had been put in place to ensure that victims benefited from a lottery windfall if won by a criminal.

He added: “We can't prevent prisoners from playing or winning the lottery. It could end up with us being taken to the European Court of Human Rights if we tried.”

A spokesman for the lottery operator, Camelot, said: “The only rules governing who plays the lottery are that you have to be over 16 and you can't work for Camelot.”
