The beverage giant moves its retail business from WPP to Omnicom.
Stugan, the mobile game accelerator in Sweden, gets its first official game launch today with the unveiling of Prism. Prism is an iOS puzzle game where players manipulate shapes and patterns to unlock “sacred geometry.” It has cinematic design, mythology, intuitive touch exploration, and meditative audio. It was created by Stugan participant Clint Siu, who […]
The Brooklyn electronic duo Beacon tease their new live visuals with the title single off their new LP, ‘Escapements.’
Scientists have obtained a gas phase structure of histamine -- a substance that is responsible for allergic reactions.
A group of scientists from Lomonosov Moscow State University studied histamine molecules in the gas phase using an electron beam. The study used both experiment and calculations. This work was published in Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics journal (impact factor of 4.493) of Royal Society of Chemistry (UK). Show More Summary
He follows former CCO Bruce Henderson, who left over the summer.
Images by Richard Termine Think of it as a new spin on the old line, "writing about music is like dancing about architecture." Architect Gabriel Calatrava, Santiago's son, designed a stage set for the Seeing Music festival held last...
Starting our week, we have an article from the Smithsonian about Babylonians using geometry centuries earlier than previously thought. This is just a cool tidbit that you don’t run across every day. In the “another day another security problem” category, fin1te explains the findings of an XSS bug on Facebook. Google announced the open source […]
Schoolkids who used finger tracing fared better with previously unseen geometry and algebra questions, new research has found. Studies involving 275 Sydney school children aged between nine and 13 found that tracing over elements of maths problems enhanced how they understood and solved problems in geometry and algebra.
Used geometry that hints at calculus 1,500 years before Europeans.
A newly deciphered clay tablet from ancient Babylon has science writers buzzing because it just might "rewrite the history of mathematics," as Live Science puts it. The tablet shows that Babylonians were using sophisticated geometric principles to track the path of Jupiter in the sky, says researcher Mathieu Ossendrijver of...
British "snow artist" Simon Beck has been making incredible large-scale pieces of art for over a decade, using virgin snow as his canvas and snowshoes (on his feet) as his paintbrush. His most recent pieces are inspired by geometry,Show More Summary
History is an evolving subject, where the latest findings or developments might just usurp the older revision, and this is apparently what happened with the latest discovery of clay tablets that pointed to how Babylonians were the ones behind the discovery of astronomical geometry – a good 1,400 years before Europeans stumbled upon it.

Calculations etched onto four stone tablets change the timeline of astronomy.
Analysis of ancient Babylonian tablets reveals that, to calculate the position of Jupiter, the tablets' makers used geometry, a technique scientists previously believed humans had not developed until at least 1,400 years later, in 14th century Europe. Show More Summary
The Moon and Jupiter (Photo: Eric Kilby/Wikimedia) Among the tens of thousands of cuneiform tablets and fragments dug up in the early 19th century from Mesopotamian cities, there are about 450 of those tablets and fragments, dated between about 350 B.C. Show More Summary
The medieval mathematicians of Oxford, toiling in torchlight in a land ravaged by plague, managed to invent a simple form of calculus that could be used to track the motion of heavenly bodies. But now a scholar studying ancient clay tablets suggests that the Babylonians got there first, and by at least 1,400 years.Read full article >>
These are the work of Jesse Bray, whose portraits of famous pop culture characters have just enough geometry to them to be interesting but aren’t completely abstracted. Read more...
Artist Christine Sciulli explores geometry by projecting expanding and contracting concentric circles on a cloud of tulle netting.
Summary: So very often, science and math prove to us what our ancestors already knew — that is, the sacred geometry that many have both wished existed today and have warded off as taboo. Many marriages and business decisions have been made under this universal algorithm, and they continue to prosper for those who will listen to it. Show More Summary
