This issue is just weird, just like my past week. It was hard to figure if I was just normal weirdness or if I should seek medical attention... “Some are born weird, some achieve it, others have weirdness thrust upon them.”  ― Dick Francis
The sport of pole dancing is trying to drop its strip club associations and show that it's an Olympic-worthy sport.

Elegant and athletic. 
 It seems like pole dancing is more of a performing art than a sport though. I associate pole dancing more with other forms of dance like ballet. 

Pole dancing is no different from rhythmic gymnastics or synchronized swimming.

This event would definitely be exciting to watch in the Olympics

NASA's twin Grail probes have created an ultra-precise gravity map of the moon

A profile across one of the linear gravity anomalies found by NASA's GRAIL mission shows that it has higher gravity than the surroundings (the anomaly is the red line in graph at bottom left; its location is shown as a blue line in the center of the GRAIL gravity gradient map at top left).

During the Apollo 16 mission, Charles Duke left a family photo on the moon that was 
enclosed in a plastic bag.  On the back of the photo Charles Duke left the message “This is the family of Astronaut Duke from Planet Earth. Landed on the Moon, April, 1972.”

Is it possible to set up a system for learning from history that's not simply programmed to avoid the most recent mistake in a very simple, mechanistic fashion? Is it possible to set up a system for learning from history that actually learns in our sophisticated way that manages to bring down both false positive and false negatives to some degree? That's a big question mark.
Nobody has really systematically addressed that question until IARPA, the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency, sponsored this particular project, which is very, very ambitious in scale. It's an attempt to address the question of whether you can push political forecasting closer to what philosophers might call an optimal forecasting frontier. That an optimal forecasting frontier is a frontier along which you just can't get any better.

I don’t know about the summer camp you went to, but mine definitely did not have a 50 Cal BMG at the shooting range, although I think it is a great idea. Nothing would rejuvenate interest in Scouting like some automatic weapons at the shooting range!

Welcome to Boy Scout week here at OPOD. We kick things off with this picture from the 1937 National Jamboree in Washington DC. The Jamboree was issued a special shortwave license for the week, so they could broadcast nationally to scouts unable to attend the Jamboree. 

The term "geek", once used to label a circus freak, has morphed in meaning over the years. What was once an unusual profession transferred into a word indicating social awkwardness.

As time has gone on, the word has yet again morphed to indicate a new type of individual: someone who is obsessive over one (or more) particular subjects, whether it be science, photography, electronics, computers, media, or any other field.

Things Every computer Geek Should Know

These are the stunning images which capture the breathtaking beauty of a new world discovered in an ice chasm beneath the Rocky Mountains. The cave, called Booming Ice Chasm, was named for it’s incredible acoustics – as falling rocks crash and ‘boom’ when they tumble down the 140 metre deep cave. TThe crystal clear ice is several meters thick – and explorers say navigating across it makes them feel like they are flying.

In the coming days the masterpiece “Vettriano, Beach Rescue” will be available again on the market.

The market, we all know, makes no prisoners. Here are the first hits: the original work of Vettriano was sold for a staggering £ 744.800 during a glorious auction at Sotheby’s in 2004. The auction was suspect and saw his final blows between two mysterious phone-bidders. Voices insinuate the overestimation for promotional purpose of the work, which was subsequently depreciated and sold for amounts of less than 300,000 pounds. Then today Banksy’s work seems to have all it takes to exceed the market value of the original, of which was originally targeted precisely to protest against the disproportionate media emphasis of a controversial artwork painted by a “nobody” who just discovered himself the most famous British artist. Jack Vettriano is in fact what we might call a strange type, one of the few Scottish artists having gained fame and success, although according to objectionable procedures and actions
