Does Hinduism have anything to say about mind, perception and cognition?
Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism give as much value to cognition as Judaism, Christianity and Islam give to commandments. This can be seen as the fundamental difference between the two. The former speak about how we perceive the world, and how we can change our perception of the world; the latter speaks of how we are supposed to behave in the world. The word "spirituality", which is about self-discovery leans towards the former, and the word "religion", which is about social engineering leans towards the latter.
Hunger distinguishes the living from the non-living.
But what distinguishes humans from the rest of nature? This question is key to Indian thought.

The binary code of body and spirit: Computing pioneer Alan Turing on mortality
[When his loved one died] Alan fell to pieces. He was able to collect himself only through work, by burrowing so deep into the underbelly of mathematics that he emerged almost on the other side, where science and metaphysics meet. Sorrow had taken him on a crusade to make sense of reality, of this senseless ruin, and he spared no modality of thought. Most of all, he wanted to understand how he could remain so attached to someone who no longer existed materially but who felt so overwhelmingly alive in his spirit.

[lovely discussion, with links to biographies and related works, and long quotes from biographies.]

What makes me really sad is that even today, if you ask people if they've ever read "The Mythical Man-Month" or understand its principal lesson ("Adding resources to a late project makes it later") they give you a blank stare - and then proceed to make the exact same errors as were made All Those Years Ago during the development of OS/360.

Speedtest by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test
Test internet connection speed. Nice interface.

Keep in mind the advice of @NoPantsHero:
balance your tests among multiple speed tests, and your best guess at your true speed is a little below the average of your results. These test can also vary on the following things: time of day, population, 'age' of the city and it's infrastructure, temperature, distance from core network hub, wifi vs wired, and interfering frequency's if on wifi.

Netflix being throttled? - Keep seeing this on the FP, and we need to talk
Do ISP's tend to prioritize things like speed tests so that it inflates user results? Yup, and I can assure you, for every speed test you can find, they've found 3 other's they've already prioritized. is Netflix 'sticking it to them' with the fast.com site? Nope. Lets dig in.

[good explanation w/screenshots]
[Netflix has set up its own CDN to get content to you faster.]
Fast.com's speed test is not an internet speed test in most cases, and should NOT be used as such to test your network speed. It is essentially useful for testing if Netflix will work, and nothing else. Any other speed test is normally just as unreliable because most ISPs will prioritize the traffic to them. Try to balance your tests among multiple speed tests, and your best guess at your true speed is a little below the average of your results. These test can also vary on the following things: time of day, population, 'age' of the city and it's infrastructure, temperature, distance from core network hub, wifi vs wired, and interfering frequency's if on wifi. ...
The point of this, don't rely on fast.com for speed tests.

Air pollution could be affecting your brain health
A new body of research is taking a closer look at how breathing dirty air can potentially impact mental health, with preliminary findings linking elevated air pollution with higher psychological distress.

Ideology Is the original augmented reality
How we fill gaps in our everyday experiences.
Ideology is the practice of augmenting reality.

We thus have four levels of reality: RR (“real” reality which we perceive and interact with), VR (virtual reality), AR (augmented reality), MR (mixed reality); but is RR really simply reality, or is even our most immediate experience of reality always mediated and sustained by some kind of virtual mechanism? Today’s cognitive science definitely supports the second view—for example, the basic premise of Daniel Dennett’s “heterophenomenology”3 is that subjective experience is the theorist’s (interpreter’s) symbolic fiction, his supposition, not the domain of phenomena directly accessible to the subject. The universe of subjective experience is reconstructed in exactly the same way as we reconstruct the universe of a novel from reading its text.

Consciousness began when the gods stopped speaking: Julian Jaynes’ famous 1970s theory
From the age of 6, Jaynes had been transfixed by the singularity of conscious experience. Gazing at a yellow forsythia flower, he’d wondered how he could be sure that others saw the same yellow as he did. As a young man, serving three years in a Pennsylvania prison for declining to support the war effort, he watched a worm in the grass of the prison yard one spring, wondering what separated the unthinking earth from the worm and the worm from himself. It was the kind of question that dogged him for the rest of his life, and the book he was working on would grip a generation beginning to ask themselves similar questions.

_The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind_ ... finally came out in 1976 ...

In the beginning of the book, Jaynes asks, “This consciousness that is myself of selves, that is everything, and yet nothing at all -- what is it? And where did it come from? And why?” Jaynes answers by unfurling a version of history in which humans were not fully conscious until about 3,000 years ago, instead relying on a two-part, or bicameral, mind, with one half speaking to the other in the voice of the gods with guidance whenever a difficult situation presented itself. The bicameral mind eventually collapsed as human societies became more complex, and our forebears awoke with modern self-awareness, complete with an internal narrative, which Jaynes believes has its roots in language.

Developing WordPress sites for the censored Web - WPMU DEV
First and foremost, when creating a website to be accessed by Chinese users, accept that you’re not playing on a level playing field. This is their country and in many ways, you have to follow their rules.

You must become familiar with the concept of internet sovereignty and the fact that the internet is not a global resource for everyone (as hard as that can be to admit to yourself). Internet sovereignty refers to how the governing entity (a state) creates boundaries on networks as a way to exert its control.

In 2014, China hosted a state-sponsored World Internet Conference for over 1000 local and foreign delegates in Wuzhen, China to talk about “An Interconnected World Shared and Governed by All”.

There was a declaration made on the last day of the conference (which was literally slid under the doors of foreign delegates’ hotel rooms) that suggested concepts of making the internet more “Communist Party-friendly” ... The basic idea here was that China tried to advance the concept of internet sovereignty as a government right.

The China Internet Network Information Center estimates that 96% of Chinese internet traffic comes from within China, so it’s more of an intranet than an internet. This, as well as a difference in requirements, is what makes it difficult for foreign startups to enter China.

[this is a very comprehensive and objective article about the issue. Doesn't pass judgment but doesn't pass over ethical implications either.]

The beginning of Buddhism and development of the Schools
The Buddhist Sangha was essentially an order of wandering mendicants and only later with the favour of kings and the wealthy did it have places to reside in and build viharas for the rainy season—the Deer Park and the Jeta Park given by Anathapindika.

There was a monastic rule forbidding the teaching of the doctrine ‘word for word’ to lay persons, and there appears to have been an injunction against writing down the scriptures to prevent them falling into the wrong hands.

10 Top Foods That Fight Inflammation in Your Body
* Fermented foods and liquids like Dong Quai, InnergyBiotic, Passion Fruit Biotic, and CocoBiotic
* Broccoli
* Hemp oil (and all other oils with omega-3 fatty acids)
* Wild-caught salmon, other fatty fish like cod and sardines.
* Tart cherries can reduce inflammation ten times better than aspirin!
* Soaked walnuts make a delicious and inflammation-fighting snack when you are ready for stage 2 of Body Ecology because of vitamin E and more heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Soak your walnuts and other nuts before you eat them to remove the enzyme inhibitor. This makes them easier to digest.
* Onions and garlic. Onions have quercetin, a potent antioxidant that can help your body fight inflammation. Garlic has long been a folk remedy for colds and illness, and its anti-inflammatory properties are amazing! Garlic contains sulfur compounds that stimulate your immune system to fight disease.
* Pineapple has bromelain, an antioxidant that boosts your immunity naturally.
* Spinach has plenty of carotenoids, one kind of inflammation-reducing antioxidant and it also contains vitamin E.
* Ginger
* Turmeric

The fight against the tiny plastic pellets choking our oceans
Nurdles are just one example of how the global economy is addicted to plastic ― and how we ignore the terrible damage it causes. Some 6.3 billion metric tons of plastic have entered the global waste stream since large-scale production began in the 1950s, and around 79 percent of that is now in landfills or scattered across the oceans.

“We have an economic system that’s built on making a profit,” said Julie Andersen, global executive director of Plastic Oceans Foundation, “so we need to work out how to engage businesses to bring them into a dialogue to make better decisions, and also how to engage the public so they can understand the economics and use their money wisely.”

There is reason to be positive, according to Antonia Gawel, head of the World Economic Forum’s Circular Economy initiative. “There is a model for economic growth that can reverse these trends. We need to migrate to a circular economy where sustainable resources are not just used but re-used,” she said.

This model ― in which resources serve a constant purpose through reuse, repurposing and recycling ― is already taking hold, Gawel said, but the challenge is to ramp up the public and private sectors’ progress.

“This is an issue for industry, and it’s industry’s job to clean it up,”

Just Do It
Western presentations of Buddhist teachings have often led to the misconception that because suffering arises out of desire, you shouldn’t desire anything. In fact, the Buddha spoke of two kinds of desire: desire that arises from ignorance and delusion, which is called tanha, craving, and desire that arises from wisdom and intelligence, which is called kusala-chanda, or dhamma-chanda, or most simply chanda. Chanda has a range of meanings, but in this case I’m using it to mean wise and intelligent desire and motivation, which the Buddha stressed as being absolutely fundamental to any progress on the eightfold path.

How stable is the personal past?
Developing a relatively stable life narrative is part of human development. Once we have figured out how we became the person we are at that moment and where we are going, we seem to at least partly hold on to it, which helps give us a stable sense of self. We recognize and present ourselves not only in the life story we tell but also in the life story we repeat.

The wisdom in dark emotions
“depression” is the word we use in our highly medicalized culture for a condition of chronic despair—despair that is stuck in the body and toxified by our inability to bear it mindfully. When we think of all despair as a mental disorder or a biochemical illness, we miss the spiritual metamorphosis to which it calls us.

In retrospect, a more helpful answer from my meditation teacher (and one more in line with the Buddha’s teachings) might have been, If you are grieving, do so mindfully. Pay attention to your grief. Stop and listen to it. Befriend it and let it be. The dark emotions are profound but challenging spiritual teachers, like the Zen master who whacks you until you develop patience and spiritual discipline.

How to Practice Tonglen
In tonglen practice, we visualize taking in the pain of others with every in-breath and sending out whatever will benefit them on the out-breath. ...

Tonglen awakens our compassion and introduces us to a far bigger view of reality. It introduces us to the unlimited spaciousness of shunyata (emptiness). By doing the practice, we begin to connect with the open dimension of our being.

Tonglen can be done for those who are ill, those who are dying or have died, or those who are in pain of any kind. It can be done as a formal meditation practice or right on the spot at any time. If we are out walking and we see someone in pain, we can breathe in that person’s pain and send out relief to them.

How the threat of climate change spurs ethnocentrism
The prospect of a dangerously warming planet inspires us to cling more tightly to our tribe. That is the discouraging finding of two newly published studies.

One reports that confronting people with climate-change warnings provoked higher levels of ethnocentrism among residents of a central European nation—and decreased their intentions of acting in Earth-friendly ways. The other finds the threat of global warming increases group conformity, leading people to more tightly endorse the truisms their circle subscribe to.
negative scenarios put them in a bad mood, which apparently made them less receptive to change.
"Across cultures, people resolve climate-change threat in symbolic ways, rather than by trying to address the problem itself," the researchers conclude.
suggests this type of fear triggers not conservatism per se, but rather an impulse to close ranks with those we trust.

Everyday foods that help you build a stronger respiratory system
Ayurveda - one of the oldest bodies of knowledge on holistic wellness, has its roots ingrained in the philosophy that food plays a big part in our well-being. As per Ayurveda and Yoga humans have psycho-physiological constitution. The three doshas—Vata, Pitta, and Kapha - that form the core principles of the Ayurvedic system, are derived from the five elements. Vata controls movement like breath, blood circulation, urination etc., Pitta controls metabolism and Kapha controls structure, holds cells together and forms muscles, fat, bones etc. All three doshas are found in varying proportions in every person.

Respiratory problems are linked to Vata and Kapha. The food one consumes should be governed by the person's constitution, season, as well as time of the day.

good list of foods and practices to help with respiratory.

If you don't use HTTPS any ISP can view every interaction of their customers with your site.
Even with HTTPS, ISPs can count DNS queries for your domain and see the number of connections to your site's IP address and know the bandwidth to it.
Traffic sources such as Google know how many visitors they send your way. Since Google is the majority of traffic for most sites, Google knows a lot about your traffic just based on that.
Browsers usually have features built in that report all page views to the browser maker
Many commonly installed browser plugins report usage of sites to the plug-in maker. That is how Alexa gets its data whether or not you as a webmaster have a relationship with Alexa.
Any third party JavaScript you install on a page allows the third party to count that hit. That is how Google analytics works, but advertising or tools for your site you install this way commonly collect data about your site.

Us vs them: the sinister techniques of ‘Othering’ – and how to avoid them
Othering is not about liking or disliking someone. It is based on the conscious or unconscious assumption that a certain identified group poses a threat to the favoured group. It is largely driven by politicians and the media, as opposed to personal contact. Overwhelmingly, people don’t “know” those that they are Othering.

Have psychologists found a better way to persuade people to save the planet?
“On the one hand, people who hold altruistic values, who want to achieve equality in society, tend to be more pro-environmental. On the other hand, people who are focused more on self-enhancing values and social dominance tend to be less concerned about the environment. This is the descriptive finding and it’s quite robust, but we don’t know yet why it’s the case.”

Squirrels organize their nuts to make them easier to remember
sometimes they actually use a system that organizes those stored nuts by size and species. They use a technique psychologists call “chunking,” in which similar items -- whether nuts or pieces of information -- are lumped into more manageable and memorable chunks.

A thorough introduction to PHP arrays
My goal today is to give a pretty thorough understanding of what PHP arrays are, and to highlight a few less-known things that even experienced PHP developers may not have known or realized.

Going back to basics is a great way to make sure you’re not missing something really important. And you can't get really far in WordPress development without fully understanding PHP arrays.

Something is wrong on the internet
Someone or something or some combination of people and things is using YouTube to systematically frighten, traumatise, and abuse children, automatically and at scale, and it forces me to question my own beliefs about the internet, at every level.
To begin: Kid’s YouTube is definitely and markedly weird.
this is a huge, huge network and industry.
warped and stretched through algorithmic repetition and recombination in ways that I don’t think anyone actually wants to happen.
it feels impossible to know where the automation starts and ends, who is coming up with the ideas and who is roleplaying them. In turn, the amplification of tropes in popular, human-led channels such as Toy Freaks leads to them being endlessly repeated across the network in increasingly outlandish and distorted recombinations.
Familiar characters, nursery tropes, keyword salad, full automation, violence, and the very stuff of kids’ worst dreams.
What we’re talking about is very young children, effectively from birth, being deliberately targeted with content which will traumatise and disturb them, via networks which are extremely vulnerable to exactly this form of abuse. It’s not about trolls, but about a kind of violence inherent in the combination of digital systems and capitalist incentives. It’s down to that level of the metal.
This, I think, is my point: The system is complicit in the abuse.
And right now, right here, YouTube and Google are complicit in that system. The architecture they have built to extract the maximum revenue from online video is being hacked by persons unknown to abuse children, perhaps not even deliberately, but at a massive scale. I believe they have an absolute responsibility to deal with this,
This is a deeply dark time, in which the structures we have built to sustain ourselves are being used against us — all of us — in systematic and automated ways.
What concerns me is that this is just one aspect of a kind of infrastructural violence being done to all of us, all of the time, and we’re still struggling to find a way to even talk about it, to describe its mechanisms and its actions and its effects.

We have built a world which operates at scale, where human oversight is simply impossible, and no manner of inhuman oversight will counter most of the examples I’ve used in this essay.

How to feed your demons
Demons (maras in Sanskrit) are not bloodthirsty ghouls waiting for us in dark corners. Demons are within us. They are energies we experience every day, such as fear, illness, depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship difficulties, and addiction.

Anything that drains our energy and blocks us from being completely awake is a demon. The approach of giving form to these inner forces and feeding them, rather than struggling against them, was originally articulated by an eleventh-century female Tibetan Buddhist teacher named Machig Labdrön (1055–1145). The spiritual practice she developed was called Chöd, and it generated such amazing results that it became very popular, spreading widely throughout Tibet and beyond.

for hundreds, thousands of years China
makes promises and breaks them, makes
treaties and breaks them. And still the
next time around, people go, oh this is
good, this will work.

I think it is: Power. If we can't have power,
we will honour it and protect it in the
one who does have power. Power addicting,
power corrupting.

When a Buddhist teacher crosses the line
am often asked questions about meditation and profound Buddhist principles, like interdependence and emptiness. ... But I have noticed that people rarely ask me about ethics and how to live a virtuous life.

... the Tibetan tradition, where we have three different approaches -- which we call yanas or “vehicles” -- that are woven together into one path of Buddhist practice. These are the Foundational vehicle of individual liberation, the Mahayana vehicle of great compassion, and the Vajrayana vehicle of indestructible wakefulness. This combination is one of the unique and beautiful aspects of Tibetan Buddhism, ...

Physical, sexual, and psychological abuse are not teaching tools.

"Crazy wisdom": Actions that are rooted in compassion and wisdom—even when they appear odd, eccentric, or even wrathful -- do not instill fear or anxiety. They bring about a flowering of compassion and wisdom in the student. ...
In other words, the results of genuine “crazy wisdom” are always positive and visible.
