Carriage horses trot out for free vet clinic

Old-fashioned horse drawn carriages loaded up with sight-seers have been a standard part of the daily landscape in the heart of downtown Guadalajara since the dawn of the 20th century.  But the sound of clip-clopping hooves mixed in with roaring car and bus motors was curiously absent from the city streets on August 20.

Proposal submitted to UDG to create first UNESCO Geopark in Mexico

A proposal to create a Geopark in the Bosque de la Primavera has been submitted to the University of Guadalajara with the recommendation that the project be presented to Jalisco State authorities.

Finding a prime number to test your computer

Prime numbers are those numbers divisible only by itself and one.  For centuries mathematicians calculated them hoping to make some kind of a breakthrough that might prove them to be useful.  A Mersenne prime is a prime number that is also all ones in binary (3 is 11 binary, 7 is 111, etc.)  Up until the 19th century, there was little use for either flavor of prime numbers, and calculating these numbers was a purely mathematical exercise until cryptographers discovered how to use them to create nearly unbreakable codes.
