Editor’s Selections: Cultural Chaos, Cheating Mozzies, and Geotagging Snaps

Editor's Selections 41 Comments
By Sarah Kendrew

Sarah Kendrew Sarah Kendrew selects interesting and notable ResearchBlogging.org posts in the physical sciences, chemistry, engineering, computer science, geosciences and mathematics. She blogs about astronomy at One Small Step.

The longest day of the year is round the corner, and summer is officially over in Western Europe. These physical sciences selection are brought to you from winter-coat-weather Germany.

Is cultural creative transmission governed by chaotic processes? This rather weighty question is the subject of an unusual but blog post on A Replicated Typo, in which author Sean Roberts talks about chaotic sampling of birdsong and other creative processes.

Mosquitoes may be the arch-enemy of a good night’s sleep, but for much of the world, avoiding their bites is a matter of life and death. Paige Brown discusses exciting new work that shows promising results in warding off these and potentially other bothersome critters by confusing their sensory systems, so they can’t locate their next meals.

Location based services are all the rage in social networking, and geotagging of images is a prime example. On Sciencetext, David Bradley looks at recent research into the usability of several image geotagging systems, used by popular services like Flickr and Panoramio.

Finally, I was happy to see several bloggers from the ResearchBlogging community on the list of Winners of the 3 Quarks Daily science blogging prizes, announced today. Congratulations SciCurious, Anne Jefferson, and the other winners! I’ll be back next week with more picks.

    I have really noticed that credit improvement activity needs to be conducted with techniques. If not, you may find yourself endangering your rating. In order to reach your goals in fixing your credit history you have to take care that from this minute you pay any monthly costs promptly before their slated date. It really is significant given that by not necessarily accomplishing this, all other activities that you will choose to use to improve your credit rank will not be powerful. Thanks for expressing your thoughts.

    What you posted made a lot of sense. But, think on this, what if you added a little content? I ain’t saying your content is not good, however what if you added a title that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is kinda plain. You could look at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create news headlines to grab people interested. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
