"Something happened there in 1971 which was the catalyst for “ping-pong diplomacy.” Remember that? It was what led to Richard Nixon’s historic trip to China a year later. Chinese ping-pong player Zhuang Zedong has died at the age of 73. Zhuang was the Chinese player who started the famous “ping-pong diplomacy” episode in the 1970s. It’s what led to Richard Nixon’s famous opening to China, and his historic trip there. US table tennis historian Tim Boggan remembers the era well. In 1971, Boggan traveled with the American team to the World Table Tennis Championships in Nagoya, Japan. Zhuang Zedong was there with the Chinese team. Boggan says ping pong diplomacy started after a top American player missed the team bus one day." Great story. Listen to how Chinese players let us win a few games for diplomacy.

"The Defense Department wants new computer tools to analyze mounds of unstructured text, blogs and tweets as part of a coordinated push to help military analysts predict the future and make decisions faster. The search is part of the Office of Naval Research's "Data to Decisions" program, a series of three-to-10-year initiatives that will address the volume of information that threatens to overwhelm planners in the digital age. The ONR is calling for computer algorithms to predict events, fuse different forms of information and offer context on unfolding events. The office expects to spend $500,000 each year in funding."

"In 2007, David Goldhill's father, in good overall health, checked into the hospital with a minor case of pneumonia. Within a few days, he developed sepsis, then a wave of secondary infections. A few weeks after entering the hospital and the day after his 83rd birthday, he died. Shortly after, Goldhill read an article that changed the course of his life. He learned just how common hospital infection deaths like his father's are: An estimated 100,000 happen in the U.S. each year. Goldhill also learned just how simple it can be to prevent them — in some cases as simple as regulating physician hand-washing. So Goldhill set out to learn as much as he could about our convoluted, insurance-based health care system. And he found that much of it is broken."

"Episode 1 of David Attenborough’s latest wildlife documentary. This 6 part series was filmed over four years in beautiful detail, with some incredible close ups and intriguing slow motion shots....Deep inside Dragon’s Breath Cave, 60 metres below the desert, lies the World’s largest underground lake. Over 100 metres deep it is home to golden catfish, the rarest and most isolated fish in the World. Completely blind, they live in perpetual darkness, eating whatever debris they can find on the top of the water."

"Much has been written about the past wars that have been fought over oil (e.g. Gulf War 1), the wars that are presently being fought over oil (e.g. Arab Spring) and the wars which will be fought over oil (e.g. Syria and Iran). What is missing from most conversations is that the wars of the future will be fought over water, leaving oil as a secondary consideration. According to the United Nations research and scientific studies, nearly two-thirds of the entire population inhabiting the planet will face severe, life-threatening water shortages by the year 2025."
