The timing of some studying methods is more effective than others, but results vary from person to person. Mathematician and Social Dimension blogger Samuel Arbesman reports on a new study that boils the options down to a handful of “model student” algorithms.

Folding: it’s detestable and boring, as any Gap employee can tell you. But it’s also a totally fun thing you can do in a video game! And today it’s particularly exciting because players of the online game Foldit have redesigned a protein, and their work is published in the science journal Nature Biotechnology. More »

Villa Amanzi by Original Vision Architecture

Villa Amanzi in Phuket, Thailand was designed by Original Vision Architecture, a firm specializing in luxuriously modern designs with offices in Hong Kong and Thailand. The villa, which has hints of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water in that it is multi-level and built into the landscape, went up in 2008. It’s nestled in a cascading, west facing ravine, with a dramatic granite slab at the northern edge, and the sparkling Andaman Sea to the south.
The home is at once solid and airy; it’s meant to seem as if it grew out from the rock, yet, the view over the water stretches to the horizon. Indoor/outdoor living is taken advantage of, with an open air living room and dining room space melding seamlessly with the patio and wood decking of the pool. There are also sliding doors at the front of the house to encourage sea breeze and circulation. The saltwater pool, which juts out from the house, is cantilevered over the lower level in a spectacular feat of horizontal versus vertical layering.
