Why some of us can not stop traveling?

Check out why we are globetrotters: as previous research has shown, long alleles of the DRD4 gene have been linked to novelty-seeking personality, hyperactivity, and risk-taking behaviors … It can be argued reasonably that exploratory behaviors are adaptive in migratory societies… usually harsh, frequently changing, and always providing a multitude of novel stimuli and ongoing challenges to survival”

“The findings revealed a very strong association between the proportion of long alleles of the DRD4 gene in a population and its prehistorical macro-migration histories.”

The New York City Marathon: The Great Race
“The marathon is a charismatic event. It has everything. It has drama. It has competition. It has camaraderie. It has heroism. Every jogger can’t dream of being an Olympic champion, but he or she can dream of finishing a marathon.” –Fred Lebow ‪
This week we opened The New York City Marathon: The Great Race, telling the story of one of the ultimate celebrations of strength, of endurance, and of the city. The exhibition, featuring more than 100 images made by professional and amateur photographers, and video footage, captures the energy, enthusiasm, and spirit of community that New York’s “Marathon Sunday” is all about.
Learn why the marathon moved from a Central Park-only race to a five-borough one, what happens to the 26 tons of clothing that runners discard along the route, and two dozen other facts explored in our exhibition in this piece from the New York Daily News.

Super moon sunday

Supermoon + lunar eclipse = super-rare.
Lunar eclipses, which can only happen during a full moon, happen a handful of times every year. A supermoon rolls around roughly once every 14 full moons. So the odds of the two events syncing up are pretty rare—the last one happened in 1982, and the next one will happen in 2033.

You've got time to get that perfect Instagram.
The moon will begin to darken at 8:11pm. By 9:07, you'll see a small bite start to appear in the side of the lunar disc; it'll take almost an hour for the shadow to cover it, but at 10:11pm, the entire moon will be in lunar eclipse. It'll start to slide out of Earth's shadow at 11:23pm, and finally return to full brightness at 12:27am. So yeah, you don't have to rush to the window at any specific moment to catch that perfect picture. (That said, if you do want a good pic of the supermoon eclipse, be sure to use a tripod—or at least balance your camera on something sturdy.)

Meteorites Tonight!

Look at the sky tonight g😍Go somewhere as dark as possible away from artificial lights.
- Allow at least 15 minutes for your eyes to adjust to the dark.
- Dress up warmly. Even on a mild night, sitting around can be cold after a while.
- There is no need for any optical aids. The naked eye is enough to see the meteor showers.
- Don’t expect miracles . “Expect to see a nice meteorite every couple of minutes. The Perseids are particularly known because they produce a lot of bright meteorites and fireballs. A lot of them are bright enough to cut through the light pollution. Give it a good hour and you have a good chance to see at least one good fireball.”

Blue Moon friday 31!

On Friday night, July 31, look skyward to see the second full moon of this month—a “Blue Moon.”
From Neil deGrasse Tyson, Director of the Hayden Planetarium:
“The average time between full moons is about 29.5 days. So any month but February can, in principle, harbor a Blue Moon. If you do the math, you will see that somebody gets a Blue Moon every 2.7 years, or so. Not particularly rare—no one thinks of Presidential elections as rare, yet they take place less often than Blue Moons. The Moon can actually look blue during rare (polluting) atmospheric conditions that involve volcanic eruptions and forest fires.”

Great summer reads: Review of “Creativity, Inc.”

Great summer reads: Review of “Creativity, Inc.”
By Jesica Levingston Macleod

One of the masterminds behind Pixar Studios, Edwin Catmull, also happens to be an amazing writer. Last year he, with the help of Amy Wallace, published a book about finding true inspiration and creativity in business called "Creativity Inc". If the Buzz Lightyear character directing an orchestra on the cover of the book doesn’t get your attention then I hope this review will do it. Edwin Catmull started his career working in Special FX for George Lucas (yes, as in Star Wars), followed by the creation of the Pixar Studios. After finding enormous success with the movie "Toy Story" the company faced troubled times and it was acquired by Steve Jobs (co-founder of Apple Computers). This book is a guide for any entrepreneur, not only for the fantastical story and the outstanding characters, but also for all the knowledge and experiences that Ed wants to share with us. He goes from the starting points for managing a creative culture to great advice about how to manage a start-up. Here are two of my favorites:
1-Give a good idea to a mediocre team, and they will screw it up. Give a mediocre idea to a great team, and they will either fix it or come up with something better. If you get the team right, chances are that they will get the ideas right.
2-Failure isn't a necessary evil. In fact, it isn't evil at all. It is a necessary consequence of doing something new.
