How AngularJS Made Me a Better Node.js Developer

Over the past 6 years I’ve used Ruby on Rails, Backbone.js, Node and AngularJS. RoR reinforced my knowledge of Model View Controller (MVC) while Backbone.js did the same for my knowledge of Publish/Subscribe. Like many who made the switch to Node, my first instinct was to try and apply MVC to my Node.js apps - however, it felt unnatural. Taking a “class”-based approach, using CoffeeScript, didn’t feel entirely natural either.

While I enjoyed developing in JavaScript, I always felt I was missing something - that is until I started developing with AngularJS. AngularJS uses both dependency injection and promises extensively, both of which have greatly improved my code. In this article, I’ll focus on dependency injection, and discuss promises in my next article.

Ancient art fills in Egypt's ecological history

Ancient art fills in Egypt's ecological history | k-12 basic education program | Scoop.it

Mammal populations shrank during three abrupt climate shifts over the past 6,000 years.

Ancient Egyptian rock inscriptions and carvings on pharaonic tombs chronicle hartebeest and oryx — horned beasts that thrived in the region more than 6,000 years ago. Researchers have now shown that those mammal populations became unstable in concert with significant shifts in Egypt’s climate.

The finding is based on a fresh interpretation of an archaeological and palaeontological record of ancient Egyptian mammals pieced together more than a decade ago by the zoologist Dale Osborn1. Thirty-eight large-bodied mammals existed in Egypt roughly six millennia ago, compared to just eight species today.

“There are interesting stories buried in the data — at the congruence of the artistic and written record,” says Justin Yeakel, an ecologist at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia, who presented the research this week at the annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America in Minneapolis, Minnesota. For example, the philosopher Aristotle said 2,300 years ago that lions were present, though rare, in Greece; shortly thereafter, the beasts appeared in the local art record for the last time, Yeakel says.

Egyptain art from about 6000 years ago that has carving of mammals, that are on rocks and tombs. These are mammals that seem to have died and not last long due to the shift of Egyptian climate. The only proved that these mammals once lived are the pieces of art that the Egyptians have left.
