Robert Reich: We’re In A One-and-a-half Dip Recession →

We’re not in a double-dip recession yet. We’re in a one and a half dip recession.

Consumer confidence is down. Retail sales are down. Home sales are down. Permits for single-family starts are down. The average work week is down. The only things not down are inventories – unsold stuff is piling up…

Police and protesters currently facing off at Occupy Oakland. There are a number of tweets about rubber bullets, tear gas and arrests, although there’s a great deal that I can’t confirm at the moment.

Enormous Crack Found in West Antartica

Feb. 1, 2012 — NASA’s Terra Earth-observing satellite captured this image of Pine Island Glacier in West Antarctica on Nov. 13, 2011, after a research team discovered a huge 19-mile (30-km) -long crack running across it.
Members of the Operation IceBridge mission spotted the crack during a DC-8 flight over Pine Island Glacier (PIG) on Oct. 14, 2011. It’s estimated to be up to 260 feet (80 meters) wide and 195 feet (60 meters) deep.
Eventually the crack will shear the glacier off completely, creating an ice island spanning 350 square miles (900 sq. km).

Answers to your Questions

minecraftteacher:

When I woke up this morning, I was not expecting the day to go this way.  I knew that what I was working on was pretty unique, but I seriously underestimated the amount of interest it would generate.  Front page of Reddit!  Crazy…

The questions have been pouring in via Twitter, Tumblr, and Reddit.  I will try to address a few common ones here, and then stay up late answering as many of the rest as I can, individually.  Here goes.
