These moths are doing something called “Batesian mimicry”. They’ve evolved to mimic the warning signals of a harmful species (in this case, wasps or bees) in an attempt to deter predators. They look like wasps to tell their predators that they can sting, although they can’t; they don’t even have any jaws or stinger. -

Are you interested to be genius? -

4 ways of treating problems
Absolution: Ignore the problem and hope it either fixes itself or someone else solves it. Default.
Resolution: Either look to the past for previous solutions to the same problem OR identify and remove the causes of the problem. Satisfice.
Solution: Analyse using quantitative methods and / or experimentation to try to yield the best possible outcome. Optimise.
Dissolution: Eliminate the problem and prevent it from arising again by redesigning the system that has the problem or its containing system. Idealise.[..]2012/06/4-ways-of-treating-problems.html

这里有一个原则同学们要记住:不重要的学术作品大可不读,但重要的要反复重读,读多遍。不要相信重要作品的简化阐释,因为作者究竟怎样想我们不可能从简化的阐释中学到。 -


培養孩子的創業精神 -

什麼是思考方法? -
思考的必要態度:同情理解原則 -

Critical thinking is an unnatural act. We evolved to survive in a cruel world, not to play around with our hacks. To make things worse, we evolved in a herd, which means that we intuitively respect the authority of the leader. But we also have to be creative, so we have to respect ourselves first. Finding the right dose of self-respect is a crucial thing in creative work. Too little self-respect could destroy our motivation and creativity, and too much will interfere with our ability to estimate the value of our ideas, and can easily result in investing time, money and effort in worthless projects.

Noone is born a critical thinker, but almost anyone can become one. Think about what [Edward de Bono] said:

“The need to be right all the time is the biggest bar to new ideas. It is better to have enough ideas for some of them to be wrong than to be always right by having no ideas”.[..]and-creative-thinking-in-a-hackers-work/

转谈艺术。艺术当然要讲技术,不容易,要多下功夫。论技术,我认为艺术比科学重要。一位技术超凡的画家,想象力不足道,其作品可以卖得起钱。有大成的艺术家呢?单凭技术不足够,加上想象力超凡也不足够——不可或缺的是感情的表达。后者是艺术的主要困难所在。科学是不需要表达感情的。 -[..]/dope-i-should-have-thought-of-that.html

Grapefruit has a high volume of compounds called furanocoumarins, which are designed to protect the fruit from fungal infections. When you ingest grapefruit, those furanocoumarins permanently take your cytochrome P450 enzymes offline. There’s no coming back. Grapefruit is powerful, and those cytochromes are donezo. So the body, when it encounters grapefruit, basically sighs, throws up its hands, and starts producing entirely new sets of cytochrome P450s. This can take over 12 hours. -[..]grapefruit-history-and-drug-interactions

Few new GCs for huge heap -

Objects are allocated with extra space for an indirection pointer. When the Java threads access the object, they first read the indirection pointer to see whether the object has moved. When the garbage collector moves an object, it updates the indirection pointer to point to the new location. New objects are allocated with an indirection pointer that points to themselves. Only when an object is copied during GC will the indirection pointer point to somewhere else. -[..]agazine/understanding-garbage-collectors
