GeekSpeak subject for Saturday December 4th at noon SLT: What will Synthetic Biology lead to?

 


One of the big drivers of the future will be synthetic biology, the art of using DNA to program bacteria or yeast cells so that they will produce something useful.  There are plenty of examples.  DNA can be used to make fertiliser, to change the taste of food, to resurrect the scent of extinct flowers. 

And this is just the beginning.  As we learn more about nature’s code the only limits to what can be achieved may be the limits of human imagination.  Will we have chairs built by cells out of tusk ivory?  Future DNA coders who can program an arm for you?  Or, frighteningly, DNA programs that are used to create bioweapons.  A, C, G, and T programming will become much more important than the old 0 and 1 programming.

Come and test your imaginations at GeekSpeak.  Bring your brought-back-to-life dinosaur and your friends!

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday at 1pm SLT in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.

GeekSpeak subject for Saturday 27th November at noon SLT: How widespread is consciousness?

 


What is consciousness?  Is it something only humans have?  Or do all animals have it? Or all living things?  Or does everything that exists have some form of consciousness? Are galaxies conscious?  Or subatomic particles?

People used to think that each planet had a spirit.  And nowadays Japanese Shintoists think that there is mind in everything.  Could they be right? 

Could an android like Data be conscious?  Or a hologram like the Doctor in Voyager?

We are diving deep this week so hold your hat and come and dive with us.  Bring your pet stone or any other object that may be alive and able to think.

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday at 1pm SLT in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.

SLE ARCHIVES 2017: Thanksgiving. What’s the Big Deal? Lanai Jarrico Reporting...

This parody article is back by popular demand,


Thanksgiving is observed in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Liberia, and Norfolk Island on the fourth Thursday of November. This year it falls on the 23rd day of the month.
The holiday includes a gathering of family and friends for the great feast of the season. Traditionally, tables are laid out like a buffet of turkey, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, gravy and all sorts of other family recipes passed down from generations.

Today, the meal is usually followed by some football, snacks, and beer. The whole day seems to revolve around food and entertaining house guests or house hoppin’ for pickings.
But really... what is Thanksgiving about?

I sat down with Pilgrim Pete and Chief Roughneck to ask them about this holiday and get both perspectives on how it came about. 

Interview with a Pilgrim and an Indian

SLE ARCHIVES 2015: Thanksgiving Interview with a Protesting Turkey- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…



Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so it is time for another Holiday Mascot Interview. I truly enjoy meeting these characters in Second Life because something unexpected always happens. Last time I interviewed a Thanksgiving mascots, it ended in an argument between a Pilgrim and Indian. This year I decided I would talk to a Turkey about his perspective, so I went to a breedable farm...



Lanai: Excuse me Mr Turkey, my name is Lanai from The SL Enquirer.  Do you have time for an interview?

Turkey: Ugh that newspaper? pfft. Anyway,  My name is Justin and get away from me! I’m not in a very trusting mood this time of year.

Lanai: Hey now!  Relax, Justin. I’m not here to hunt you for my table. I just want to talk to you about Thanksgiving.

Turkey: What’s to talk about? It is not my favorite holiday, neither is Christmas. You humans need to think about making healthier choices that do not involve us.



Lanai: But Turkey is very healthy. It is a valuable source of protein and is a good source of iron, zinc, potassium, and phosphorus in addition to vitamin B6 and niacin, which are both essential for the body's energy production. Don’t make me get all educational about it, but I understand why you’d disagree with sacrificing yourself for us. I just wanted to get your perspective on this holiday.

Turkey: Well from my perspective, it isn’t all about zinc, potassium, vitamin B6 and blah blah blah all that other stuff. It’s all about being choked, feathers being plucked, and having my neckbone shoved up my ass! Then, to finish me off with a golden brown crisp. Doesn’t sound like a whole lot of fun does it?  If it were up to me, I would hunt down humans and stick them in the center of a table for my family to gather around and see how you like it, but we are herbivores. Besides that, you humans eat way too much junk food and would not be healthy to eat, even for a pig!

Lanai:That wasn’t very nice Justin.

Turkey: What’s not nice is the annual roundup of my fellow feathered fowls...Lanai

Lanai: I guess you have a point. So what do you suggest we use as our main staple for Thanksgiving ?

Turkey: If I really had a say. I would suggest that nice stocky Amaretto horse over there! Let me make my case for your brutal holiday.  You can make horse bacon, ribs, scrapple, pony sausage, rump roast, horse shoulder, horse rinds, jerky and  stew. Do I need to go on? Don’t get me started on the breedable dragons and meeroos if you can catch one.

By this time all the Breedable animals gathered around to listen in…



Horse: Hold on a second Justin there is such a thing as turkey bacon just saying!  Remember you have to live here with us so be careful what you tell this nosy reporter.

Meerroos: Wait. What?

Justin the Turkey: I will peck both of your eyeballs out. Mind your own business. The way you both populate Second Life, you outta be the ones hunted!

Horse: Don’t make me come over there Justin.


Meeroos: pfft. *scurries off*

Justin the Turkey: Oh yea ponyboy? I got one thing to say! *points at the horses*  Lady,take your pick. Each one is at least 2,400 pounds of meat!

Lanai: Wooooah. Wait a minute.

Horse: *gives Justin the hoof and gallops off into the stable*


Chicken: Keep me and my chicks out of this conversation. This is the one day of the year that we get a break, so CLUCK OFF!

Justin the Turkey: Easy there feathered friend!  What’s one more day? Let’s not mention Football season and all the damn chicken wings these humans consume.

Lanai: OK, this is getting out of hand.  Let me just clear the air before a riot breaks out on this farm. I am just here to talk about Thanksgiving from a Turkey’s perspective.

Unknown animal in the crowd: You picked the wrong farm lady!

Lanai: Is that so? *smirks*

In the meantime, Justin the Turkey and his flock gets into an argument with the Horses and chickens while Lanai quietly backs out of the barn and starts the turkey deep fryer.



It is clear that an interview with a Turkey was not the best idea, especially on a farm where other disgruntled animals live just awaiting for consumption. However you celebrate Thanksgiving  be thankful for the animals who unwillingly sacrificed themselves for you.

Happy Thanksgiving SLE Fans!

Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in Second Life!




Happy thanksgiving 2021 to you and yours :) Welcome to the 18th annual Macy's Thanksgiving parade tribute in fabulous New York City! 

The parade has won many awards and is the only totally interactive parade in Second Life.  It is approx 1+  hours long and has 103 floats and balloons to date. It runs 24/7 so be sure to come back if you miss any of it and bring your friends :) great photo ops for all

Please remove all unnecessary huds and trackers laggy attachments etc. 

The parade runs down the main route (5th ave)  (if you can't see the balloons (pan your cam up)

To ride the floats and balloons right-click on one and choose to sit or ride -- it has many couples rides also :) any floats with pose balls you can also choose where to sit by hitting on that ball.

Note:  if you are on a float that does not disappear at the end of the ride please stand and get off the ride

The parade is best viewed at midday or noontime 

There is a slight pause from the end to the beginning of the next start of the parade to allow all to see from the beginning and tp friends to join you.

Tips 

The best way to get a great experience riding the floats is to go to the start of the parade and take the 4 1/2 min. Ride to the end, then fly back to the start again or pick another that is already out. The best view of the parade is from the sidewalk at the little shop on the corner.

If your graphics can handle it turn up your draw distance far enough to see the beginning and end of the parade route


Other Things to do:

  • Macy's building 
  • Visit Santa Clause get freebee presents
  • Central park
  • Relax in the stone park 
  • Dance in the romantic gazebo
  • Rockefeller center
  • Ice skating
  • Back street
  • Folies bar
  • Have a bit of holiday cheer!


Good eats

Twisted Imagery in Janus Gallery III Nov 28th 12PM SLT

 


You are cordially invited to join us Sunday, November 28th from 12p-2pm slt for Kraven Klees' new exhibit in Janus Gallery III entitled, "Twisted Imagery." Dude and Agatha Nowles will perform live making for a colorful day of art and music. We can’t wait to share it with you! 12pm slt Dude 1pm slt Agatha Nowles About the artist: Kraven Klees creates media artworks, fractals, photos, and mixed media artworks. By applying abstraction, Klees investigates the dynamics of art, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what art means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination. His media artworks establish a link between the arts reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence. By exploring the concept of art in a nostalgic way, he tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations. His works don’t reference recognizable forms. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, he creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles. His works never show the complete structure. This results in the fact that the artist can easily imagine their own interpretation without being hindered by the historical reality. By experimenting with aleatoric processes, he formalizes the coincidental and emphasizes the conscious process of composition that is behind the seemingly random works. The thought processes, which are supposedly private, highly subjective, and unfiltered in their references to dream worlds, are frequently revealed as assemblages. His works feature coincidental, accidental, and unexpected connections which make it possible to revise art history and, even better, to complement it.
