SUSPENDED COFFEE PLEASE

SUSPENDED COFFEE PLEASE


We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re approaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter: ‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.

I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?” My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.” Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers – three for them and four ‘suspended’.

While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square in front of the cafe. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in through the door and kindly asks ‘Do you have a suspended coffee?’

It’s simple – people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm beverage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwich or a whole meal. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafe’s or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.

Using AI To Track Birds Migrating At Night

Using AI To Track Birds Migrating At Night


By Brooks Hays


It’s difficult to track birds flying across the sky in the dark of night, but every fall and spring, millions of birds migrate through the night. Weather radar can offer a spotty view of the phenomenon, but to track nighttime migrations with greater accuracy and reliability, a group of researchers turned to artificial intelligence.


Scientists designed a machine-learning algorithm to analyze weather radar images and differentiate migrating birds from precipitation. The algorithm replicates the power of neural networks to analyze and classify radar images.


Researchers used the new artificial intelligence program to survey decades-long radar data sets, revealing seasonal and continent-wide migration patterns.


Scientists tested their system against multiple observational studies to verify its accuracy. The new technology — which scientists hope to eventually integrate with other technologies, like eBird, animal tracking devices, and earth observation instruments — could help researchers identify important stopping points for migrating species, information that could be used to plan more effective conservation efforts.

On the road to success you don’t have to go far
No need to ascend to the outermost star
But the prize you can win

When you learn to accept people just as they are
