James Lovelock, Father of Gaia Theory, Endorses Natural Gas Fracking Posted by Steve Maley Saturday, June 16th at 10:31AM EDT James Lovelock, now 92 years of age, is the father of Gaia theory, the idea that Mother Earth is a sort of sentient, self-regulating organism. So it was noteworthy a few weeks back when he walked back some of his predictions of our planets impending doom from Global Warming. In an interview with the Guardian, Lovelock embraces fracking for natural gas, scorns renewables and castigates the Germans for shutting down their nukes in favor of lignite, a low-grade coal, for electricity generation. (H/T wattsupwiththat.com.) First, fracking: Gas is almost a ...
Flame Steals Data Even When Computers Are Not Connected to the Internet
Post Date: 2012-06-13 19:06:09 by Capitalist Eric
Experts specializing in malware from Bitdefender have uncovered a special capability in Flames code that allows the virus to steal data from computers that are not connected to the Internet or networked machines. Flame can move stolen data to a USB memory stick plugged into an infected harddrive. Bitdefender asserts that this ability has never been witnessed before. This cyber-espionage virus will move stolen information to an USB outlet, then seemingly wait for the chance to upload it to the malware controllers once the infected computer links to the Internet. Bogdan Botezatu, malware analyst from Bitdefeder, said: It turns users into data mules. Chances are, at some point, a ...

Air Force's Secretive X-37B Space Plane Will Land Soon
Post Date: 2012-05-31 12:25:59 by Brian S
After more than a year in space, the U.S. Air Force's secretive robotic space plane, the X-37B, is coming down soon. That's the word today (May 30) from officials at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, the site where the reusable miniature space shuttle will land in the next few weeks, technical and weather conditions permitting. While the exact landing date and time of the unmanned X-37B space plane is not yet determined, according to a Vandenberg Air Force Base statement, the crafts touchdown "is expected to occur during the early- to mid-June timeframe." Preparations for the second landing of the X-37B are now underway at the Air Force base. "The men ...
SpaceX Vehicle Returns to Earth After Leaving Space Station
Post Date: 2012-05-31 12:21:16 by Brian S
Space Exploration Technologies Corp.s supply ship returned to Earth hours after leaving the International Space Station. Closely held SpaceX, controlled by billionaire Elon Musk, on May 25 became the first company to dock a craft at the station. The feat was previously accomplished only by the U.S., European, Japanese and Russian governments. The ship parachuted down and splashed into the Pacific Ocean at 11:42 a.m. New York time, about 500 miles off the coast of southern California. It returned with about 1,400 pounds of cargo. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration retired its shuttle fleet last year and wants the private sector to take over ferrying supplies and ...
Cyber-Attack Concerns Raised Over Boeing 787 Chip's 'Back Door'
Post Date: 2012-05-30 12:06:48 by Brian S
Two Cambridge experts have discovered a "back door" in a computer chip used in military systems and aircraft such as the Boeing 787 that could allow the chip to be taken over via the internet. The discovery will heighten concerns about the risks of cyber-attacks on sensitive installations, coming on the heels of the discovery this week of the 'Flamer' virus which has been attacking computer systems in Iran, Syria and Saudi Arabia. In a paper that has been published in draft form online and seen by the Guardian, researchers Sergei Skorobogatov of Cambridge University and Chris Woods of Quo Vadis Labs say that they have discovered a method that a hacker can use to connect ...
SpaceX Dragon Arrives At Space Station In Historic 1st
Post Date: 2012-05-25 11:14:20 by Brian S
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) The privately bankrolled Dragon capsule arrived at the International Space Station for a historic docking Friday, captured by astronauts wielding a giant robot arm. It succeeded in making the first commercial delivery into the cosmos. U.S. astronaut Donald Pettit used the space station's 58-foot robot arm to snare the gleaming white Dragon after a few hours of extra checks and maneuvers. The two vessels came together while sailing above Australia. "Looks like we've got us a dragon by the tail," Pettit announced from 250 miles up once he locked onto Dragon's docking mechanism. "You've made a lot of folks happy down here over ...
Facebook Flops: Look Out Below!
Post Date: 2012-05-20 11:03:06 by We The People
After all the hype and anticipation, Facebook's initial public offering turned out to be a disappointment that may bode poorly for investors in the company's richly priced shares. Facebook (ticker: FB) sold 421 million shares Thursday at $38 after bumping up the price range from the original $28 to $35 per share. The stock began trading above $42 Friday morning and came under pressure in the afternoon, spending much of the final half hour just above $38 before finishing at $38.23. (The stock traded as high as $44 in the private market in March.) Without reported support from the deal underwriters, the shares might have fallen below $38 in what would have been a big embarrassment ...
Paralyzed woman moves robotic arm using thought alone

Here's what will happen: as of today, more people than ever will believe that those calamities will occur on precisely the day they're predicted to. The reason: a new discovery just reported in the journal Science of the earliest known Mayan astronomical calendar, featuring elaborate and detailed work by one of the most ...
It Will Be Hot in Texas This Summer
Post Date: 2012-05-14 09:48:52 by CZ82
It Will Be Hot in Texas This Summer By William Tucker on 5.11.12 @ 6:09AM And thanks to federal policies the state likely will run out of electricity. Texas, the most energy-intensive state in the nation, could be facing a severe electrical shortage this summer. How could such a thing happen? Mainly, it's the result of a long series of federal interventions that have finally left the state turning in circles about what to do next. First, the gory details. Last summer the state was hit with a heat wave in which the temperature was over 100 degrees for almost a month. Since most cities are barely habitable without air conditioning, electrical consumption rose to record levels. ...
East Anglia Climatic Research Unit shown to be liars by results of latest FOIA ruling and investigation
Post Date: 2012-05-07 11:41:23 by SJN
In the over 7,000 published stories here on WUWT, I have never used the word liar in the headline to refer to CRU and the Yamal affair. That changes with this story. Ive always thought that with CRU, simple incompetence is a more likely explanation than malice and/or deception. For example, Phil Jones cant even plot trends in Excel. In this particular case, I dont think incompetence is the plausible explanation anymore. As one commenter on CA (Andy) said I suspect the cause of all this is an initial small lie, to cover intellectual mistakes, snowballing into a desire not to lose face, exacerbated by greater lies and compounded by group think. ...
Space weather expert has ominous forecast
Post Date: 2012-05-07 06:57:10 by CZ82
Space weather expert has ominous forecast Mike Hapgood, who studies solar events, says the world isn't prepared for a truly damaging storm. And one could happen soon. A massive explosion on the sun's surface has triggered the largest solar radiation storm since 2005, hurling charged particles at Earth. (NASA / May 4, 2012) A stream of highly charged particles from the sun is headed straight toward Earth, threatening to plunge cities around the world into darkness and bring the global economy screeching to a halt. This isn't the premise of the latest doomsday thriller. Massive solar storms have happened before and another one is likely to occur soon, according to Mike ...
Science and the Republican Brain
Post Date: 2012-05-02 18:06:06 by SJN
The so-called Republican brain, with its deep resistance to yielding before mere scientific evidence, has played an indispensable role in the making of modern science, long before the emergence of the Grand Old Party. A new term of political opprobrium has been loosed upon the world: anti-science. Like many terms of abuse, it is easier to convey its meaning by an illustration than by a rigorous definition. For example, If those damn Republicans werent so anti-science, we might have a chance of dealing with global warming. Heres another example: Those damn Republicans are so anti-science that they want to see creationism taught in schools. As these two ...

The third industrial revolution [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2012-04-22 17:36:56 by jwpegler
The digitisation of manufacturing will transform the way goods are madeand change the politics of jobs too THE first industrial revolution began in Britain in the late 18th century, with the mechanisation of the textile industry. Tasks previously done laboriously by hand in hundreds of weavers cottages were brought together in a single cotton mill, and the factory was born. The second industrial revolution came in the early 20th century, when Henry Ford mastered the moving assembly line and ushered in the age of mass production. The first two industrial revolutions made people richer and more urban. Now a third revolution is under way. Manufacturing is going digital. As this ...
Our Universe Is A Gigantic And Wonderfully Detailed Holographic Illussion
Post Date: 2012-04-21 15:36:02 by hondo68
MessageToEagle.com - In our daily life we are not aware that we may, in fact, live in a hologram and our existence is a holographic projection, nothing more. All what we believe is real, our whole physical world, is - in fact - an illusion being proved by the holographic universe, one of the most remarkable theories of 20th century. Energy fields are decoded by our brains into a 3D picture, to give the illusion of a physical world. Despite its apparent materiality, the universe is a kind of 3-D projection and is ultimately no more real than a hologram. "Our brain mathematically construct objective reality by interpreting frequencies that are ultimately from another dimension, a ...
Viking robots found life on Mars in 1976, scientists say
Post Date: 2012-04-12 16:11:48 by jwpegler
New analysis of 36-year-old data, resuscitated from printouts, shows NASA found life on Mars, an international team of mathematicians and scientists conclude in a paper published this week. Further, NASA doesn't need a human expedition to Mars to nail down the claim, neuropharmacologist and biologist Joseph Miller, with the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine, told Discovery News. "The ultimate proof is to take a video of a Martian bacteria. They should send a microscope -- watch the bacteria move," Miller said. "On the basis of what we've done so far, I'd say I'm 99 percent sure there's life there," he added. Miller's ...
Social Stress Changes Immune System Gene Expression in Primates
Post Date: 2012-04-11 12:22:48 by lucysmom
The ranking of a monkey within her social environment and the stress accompanying that status dramatically alters the expression of nearly 1,000 genes, a new scientific study reports. The research is the first to demonstrate a link between social status and genetic regulation in primates on a genome-wide scale, revealing a strong, plastic link between social environment and biology. In a comparison of high-ranking rhesus macaque females with their low-ranking companions, researchers discovered significant differences in the expression of genes involved in the immune response and other functions. When a female's rank improved, her gene expression also changed within a few weeks, ...

Many Billions of Rocky Planets in Habitable Zones Around Red Dwarfs in Milky Way
Post Date: 2012-03-28 16:22:12 by jwpegler
A new result from ESO's HARPS planet finder shows that rocky planets not much bigger than Earth are very common in the habitable zones around faint red stars. The international team estimates that there are tens of billions of such planets in the Milky Way galaxy alone, and probably about one hundred in the Sun's immediate neighbourhood. This is the first direct measurement of the frequency of super-Earths around red dwarfs, which account for 80% of the stars in the Milky Way. This first direct estimate of the number of light planets around red dwarf stars has just been announced by an international team using observations with the HARPS spectrograph on the 3.6-metre telescope at ...
