Bookmark:Is There Awareness Behind Vegetative States?

That day when we’re able to distinguish that line, I’d wish we’d figured this all out way back in 2000. It still bothers me that we weren’t able to figure out what was going on in that mind and if at all there was a communication happening…

Imagine that a loved one, let’s say your brother, has suffered a serious brain injury. After languishing in a coma, he finally “emerges”—that is, he cycles between sleep and wakefulness, yanks his hand away when it’s pricked, is startled by loud noises, and so on.

Bookmark: Tufte in R

The idea behind Tufte in R is to use R – the most powerful open-source statistical programming language – to replicate excellent visualisation practices developed by Edward Tufte.

I simply collect those resources in one place in an accessible and replicable format, adding a few bits of my own coding discoveries.

Insanely inspiring read, Josh. Always in awe of the things you do for TARC and the amazing positive attitude you always have. Honored to have got to know you on those trails. May all forces be with you!

Whoa! I’ve always thought we’ve already mapped everything out in the ocean. Just 5% so far? Phew!

Thanks for the pointer, Eli !

Earth has no shortage of stunning landforms: Mt. Everest rises majestically above the clouds; the Grand Canyon rents deep into desert rock layers; the mountains that make up the Ethiopian Highlands, aka the Roof of Africa, tower above the rest of the continent.

If you’re interested in foraging, your best source of information is going to be a local forager who knows what’s available in your area at different times of year. You next best would be a book by a local forager.

Run for Colin

Met Joe McConaughy over the weekend at the TARC camp. Three years ago he beat the record for a supported through hike/run of the PCT at 53 days and 6 hours. 2660 miles…Such an inspiration!

How to Restart an Ecosystem

When I first flew over Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park in March, 2004, I saw a lush, Eden-like landscape. But I couldn’t pick out a single animal.
