Recipes: Cherry season is almost here; make these 3 delicious desserts

There’s a crisp crunch as teeth break through fresh cherry skin, spreading vibrant sweet-tart juices throughout the mouth. A plump, ripe cherry is a culinary treasure, providing a uniquely vibrant flavor profile and toothsome texture. Pits-in-place are fine for eating cherries out of hand, with teeth and tongue working to separate flesh from stone. Otherwise, the pits require removal. Trying to squeeze out the seed by hand is a messy proposition. I loved the one-at-a-time cherry pitters I inheri...

What Would Happen If Search Engines Had to Give Higher Visibility to Less Relevant Results?

I’m reporting on a study by Bin Han, Chirag Shah, and Daniel Saelid called “Users’ Perception of Search Engine Biases and Satisfaction.” The authors showed two pages of Bing results to study participants. (An aside: Bing…really?) The first page was Bing’s standard results for a query. The second page replaced some of the standard results with lower-ranking Bing results for that query. The second page was designed to mimic how search results might look if regulators required search engines to com...

Investigation Finds Links Between Seamy Slander Sites and Reputation-Management Services

This week the New York Times published their online investigation into the seamy world of the professional slander industry. (Alternate URL.) At first glance, the websites appear amateurish. They have names like BadGirlReports.date, BustedCheaters.com and WorstHomeWrecker.com. Photos are badly cropped. Grammar and spelling are afterthoughts. They are clunky and text-heavy, as if they're intended to be read by machines, not humans. But do not underestimate their power... One woman in Ohio was...

Respecting property takes two

Parents don’t teach their children the word for “mine”; they learn it all on their own. Parents also don’t teach their two-year-olds the following rules of “mine”: if I like it, it’s mine;if I see it, it’s mine;if it’s in my hand, it’s mine;if it looks like mine, it’s mine;if I can take it from you, it’s mine; andif I had it a little while ago, it’s mine.Yet, no parent in any age or community lets these untaught rules of “mine” stand unchecked.

With More Than 7000 Languages In The World, Google Translate Is Next To Useless

That is, for most of them, because Google Translate (and Bing) relies on written translations – which works well for French, Spanish, English, German, and other often-translated languages. “No such data mountain exists, however, for languages that may be widely spoken but not as prolifically translated” – languages such as Wolof, Luganda, Twi and Ewe, not to mention many indigenous languages in the Americas. Can “neural networks” be retrained to learn from smaller, and more spoken, samples? – B...
