Computer programmer teaches homeless to code

Wow. This is pretty cool. I’ve been wanting to do something similar to Patrick for several years now, though I was thinking on a larger scale. Now I feel like, “What was my excuse?” Oh, it was that I didn’t want to do fundraising to start my own non-profit. Props to Patrick, Logan, and Leo!

Make the Homeless Smile

Another video on the same theme (well, visually at least) as the one I posted three weeks ago.

Universal Languages?

Some say math and music are universal languages. This video is in Russian. I don’t understand Russian, so I don’t understand the words to the song. There are no mathematical equations in the video. But, provided the song matches the video, somehow I think I understand what is being said. It seems to fit really well with this proverb from the Old Testament book of Proverbs, as well as with this passage from the Book of Mormon. If anyone who understands the lyrics would like to enlighten me as to whether they match the video, I’d be grateful.

Based on what I see, I’d say love (in this case, charity as the Romans called it; agape to the Greeks) is the most universal language.

How a Square Resonates

Just for fun: Pretty cool patterns created on a vibrating square plate. If you are sensitive to high-frequency sounds, you’ll want to turn the volume down. Also, your ears will be happier if you can listen using speakers that are not in close proximity to your ear canal.
