IBM says 'mind control' possible in five years
Post Date: 2011-12-19 22:06:22 by A K A Stone
As part of IBM's "5 in 5" forecasts of predictions, the company says that "minding reading" (more like mind control) will no longer be a science fiction dream and that within five years, we'll all be controlling our computers and smartphones by just wiggling our brains. While Apple focuses on speech technology with Siri, IBM believes the next revolution will involve our brains. To tackle and make mind control a reality, we'd all need to wear something like Emotiv's EPOC neuroheadset that's equipped with sensors that read electrical brain signals. According to IBM Research News "the idea is to use these electrical synapses to also do everyday ...
Hydrogel helps grow new scar-free skin over third degree burns
Post Date: 2011-12-19 18:50:50 by A K A Stone
Third-degree burns typically require very complex treatment, and leave nasty scars once they've healed. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University, however, are reporting success at treating such burns on lab mice, using a new type of hydrogel that grows new skin (as opposed to scar tissue) over burn sites. The gel contains no drugs or biological components - it's made mainly from water and dissolved dextran, which is a sugar-like polymer. The team, led by principal investigator Sharon Gerecht, had originally planned on infusing the hydrogel with stem cells and growth factors. Due to processes they don't fully understand, however, the gel in its basic form was able to grow new ...
Comet Lovejoy Survives Brush With the Sun
Post Date: 2011-12-16 23:45:14 by A K A Stone
On Wednesday, I reported on the approach to the Sun by Comet Lovejoy, the first "sungrazing" comet to be discovered by a ground-based observer in over 40 years. Most comet experts had predicted that the comet, officially known as C/2011 W3 (Lovejoy), would disintegrate on Friday, vaporized by its passage just a fraction of a solar radius from our star. Clearly, the comet had other ideas. To the delight of astronomers, it survived its close encounter with the Sun, retaining much of its brilliance as seen in images from spaceborne observatories. Its now receding from the Sun and should become visible in the night sky within days for observers at southerly latitudes. ...
Broadband vs. Internet
Post Date: 2011-12-12 10:51:51 by A K A Stone
The Internet is no more capable than the infrastructures that carry it. Here in the U.S. most of those infrastructures are owned by telephone and cable companies. Those companies are not only in a position to limit use of the Internet for purposes other than their own, but to reduce the Net itself to something less, called broadband. In fact, theyve been working hard on both. Well talk about broadband below. For now lets look at the clobbering the Internet took last week when Verizon, the only large provider of fiber optic Internet connections in the U.S., put an end to expansion of FiOS, their fiber-to-the-premise telephone, Internet and cable TV system. This ...

Uranium Is So Last Century Enter Thorium, the New Green Nuke By Richard Martin The thick hardbound volume was sitting on a shelf in a colleagues office when Kirk Sorensen spotted it. A rookie NASA engineer at the Marshall Space Flight Center, Sorensen was researching nuclear-powered propulsion, and the books title Fluid Fuel Reactors jumped out at him. He picked it up and thumbed through it. Hours later, he was still reading, enchanted by the ideas but struggling with the arcane writing. I took it home that night, but I didnt understand all the nuclear terminology, Sorensen says. He pored over it in the coming months, ultimately deciding ...

Robotic bear pillow stops your snoring by gently mauling your face
Post Date: 2011-11-16 18:27:42 by sneakypete
Looking to stop snoring? What you need is Jusui-Kun, a robot bear that paws your face while you're sleeping. Okay, it's more of a "gentle tickling," according to the bear's creators. The key is to get the snorer sleeping on the pillow to move his or her head from side to side. Jusui-Kun has a built-in mic to detect the sleeper's snoring, while an equally cuddly hand monitor detects blood oxygen levels, letting the bear know when to issue one of its loving face swipes.

Twenty Percent Chance of Solar Flares
Post Date: 2011-11-04 08:10:37 by Get Outta Dodge!
CHANCE OF FLARES: NOAA forecasters have upgraded the chance of X-class solar flares today to 20%. The source would be AR1339, one of the biggest sunspots in many years. The active region rotated over the sun's eastern limb two days ago and now it is turning toward Earth. Solar flare alerts: text, voice. The sunspot has already unleashed one X-flare on Nov. 3rd around 2027 UT. A movie from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory shows the extreme ultraviolet flash: Click for Full Text!
Astronomers discover complex organic matter in the universe
Post Date: 2011-10-26 15:35:23 by Skip Intro
Astronomers discover complex organic matter in the universe In today's issue of the journal Nature, astronomers report that organic compounds of unexpected complexity exist throughout the Universe. The results suggest that complex organic compounds are not the sole domain of life but can be made naturally by stars. Prof. Sun Kwok and Dr. Yong Zhang of the University of Hong Kong show that an organic substance commonly found throughout the Universe contains a mixture of aromatic (ring-like) and aliphatic (chain-like) components. The compounds are so complex that their chemical structures resemble those of coal and petroleum. Since coal and oil are remnants of ancient life, this type of ...

Climate skeptic admits he was wrong to doubt global-warming data
Post Date: 2011-10-24 16:40:26 by Skip Intro
Remember when scientists who had cast doubt on global temperature studies boldly embarked on an effort to "reconsider" the evidence? They have. And they conclude that their doubt was misplaced. UC Berkeley physicist Richard Muller and others were looking at the so-called urban heat island effect -- the notion that because more urban temperature stations are included in global temperature data sets than are rural ones, the global average temperature was being skewed upward because these sites tend to retain more heat. Hence, global warming trends are exaggerated. Using data from such urban heat islands as Tokyo, they hypothesized, could introduce "a severe warming bias in ...
Criminals find novel uses for 3D printing

3D printersdesktop devices that can print out objects as easily as your home inkjet prints out documentsare getting less expensive and more common every day, and they promise to revolutionize manufacturing in the same way that desktop printing revolutionized publishing. In the past year, people have used 3D printing to tackle everything from spare parts to entire cars to blood vessels. It seems as though a new use for 3D printing emerges every week. Unfortunately, though the promise of 3D printing is great, we've also begun to see glimpses of its dark side as criminalsand average citizens who are up to no goodthink up dangerous and creepy new uses for 3D ...
Uranus takes a pounding more frequently than thought
Post Date: 2011-10-09 21:15:40 by Ferret Mike
Uranus isn't just gassy, it's also tilted completely sideways, such that instead of rotating like a spinning top, it rolls around the plane of the solar system more like a giant ball. Now astronomers think they know how this happened, and it means that Uranus has been pounded really, really hard not once, but twice. Uranus' axial tilt of 98 degrees means that it's got one pole pointed almost directly at the sun, and one pole pointed out into space. As the planet revolves around the sun, these poles slowly switch places, meaning that if you lived there, you'd get 42 years of sunlight followed by 42 years of darkness, with a short time in between where things would seem ...

Homeland Security Moves Forward With 'Pre-Crime' Detection
Post Date: 2011-10-07 15:27:05 by Brian S
An internal U.S. Department of Homeland Security document indicates that a controversial program designed to predict whether a person will commit a crime is already being tested on some members of the public, CNET has learned. If this sounds a bit like the Tom Cruise movie called "Minority Report," or the CBS drama "Person of Interest," it is. But where "Minority Report" author Philip K. Dick enlisted psychics to predict crimes, DHS is betting on algorithms: it's building a "prototype screening facility" that it hopes will use factors such as ethnicity, gender, breathing, and heart rate to "detect cues indicative of mal-intent." ...
Exclusive: Computer Virus Hits U.S. Drone Fleet
Post Date: 2011-10-07 14:28:10 by Brian S
A computer virus has infected the cockpits of Americas Predator and Reaper drones, logging pilots every keystroke as they remotely fly missions over Afghanistan and other warzones. The virus, first detected nearly two weeks ago by the militarys Host-Based Security System, has not prevented pilots at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada from flying their missions overseas. Nor have there been any confirmed incidents of classified information being lost or sent to an outside source. But the virus has resisted multiple efforts to remove it from Creechs computers, network security specialists say. And the infection underscores the ongoing security risks in what has become ...
Rather than spiraling into a meltdown, we may be heading into next ice age
Post Date: 2011-10-07 00:23:11 by A K A Stone
Rather than spiraling into a global warming meltdown, we may be heading into the next ice age. The U.S. National Solar Observatory, the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory and astrophysicists across the planet report that the nearly all-time low sunspot activity may result in a sustained cooling period on Earth. The news has sent global warming theory advocates scrambling to discount and explain away the impact on global temperatures. However, the "news" is not really that new. Many reputable scientists have been warning for decades that we are nearing the end of the 11,500-year average period between ice ages. And the last similar crash in sunspot activity coincided with the ...
400 MPG… or Conspiracy Theory?
Post Date: 2011-09-28 12:23:51 by Capitalist Eric
Maybe the conspiracy theorists were right after all. That was the first thought to pop into my head as I read about an engineer named Steve Fambro and his 400 mpg hybrid Aptera two-seater. Yes, you read that right. 400 MPG. Really. The mileage of the snarky little gullwing coupe is about five times better than the mileage posted by the best hybrid a major automaker has ever delivered the 70 mpg Honda Insight (mark I, the small two-seater built back in the early 2000s, not the current model) and makes a new Toyota Prius look like a 69 Chrysler Newport with two dead cylinders, a slipping transmission and a trunk full of bricks. Fill-ups could be a once-a-month deal. ...
China prepares to launch space laboratory
Post Date: 2011-09-28 06:55:05 by lucysmom
China will take the first step to having its own space station tomorrow, launching the Tiangong-1, or "Heavenly Palace" space laboratory. The unmanned, 8.5 ton Tiangong-1 will help to test the technologies that China plans to use in its space station, which is scheduled for completion by 2020. It will also be used as a docking target for the unmanned Shenzhou 8 space craft which is expected to launch by the end of this year. If that mission succeeds, Chinese astronauts could fly to Tiangong-1 next year, dock, and live aboard it. If China can demonstrate it has a functioning docking system, it could also begin to dock with the International Space Station. China has held up its ...
We Incorporate Genetic Information From the Food We Eat, New Study Finds
Post Date: 2011-09-21 12:25:25 by lucysmom
Research at Nanjing University has found that strands of RNA from vegetables make it into our bloodstream after we eat them, and can regulate the expression of our genes once they're inside us. MicroRNAs, or miRNAs, are little strands of RNA that selectively bind to matching sequences of messenger RNA, resulting in repression of those genes. Their role has only been understood in the last decade or so, but miRNAs are currently believed to take part in a vast number of processes in both plants and animals. Chen-Yu Zhang and colleagues found plant miRNA sequences in the tissue of animals that ate those plants. One of them, called MIR168a, is produced by rice and abundantly found in the ...
'Inexhaustible' Source of Hydrogen May Be Unlocked by Salt Water, Engineers Say
Post Date: 2011-09-20 19:56:03 by jwpegler
A grain of salt or two may be all that microbial electrolysis cells need to produce hydrogen from wastewater or organic byproducts, without adding carbon dioxide to the atmosphere or using grid electricity, according to Penn State engineers. "This system could produce hydrogen anyplace that there is wastewater near sea water," said Bruce E. Logan, Kappe Professor of Environmental Engineering. " It uses no grid electricity and is completely carbon neutral. It is an inexhaustible source of energy." Microbial electrolysis cells that produce hydrogen are the basis of this recent work, but previously, to produce hydrogen, the fuel cells required some electrical input. Now, ...
Scientists Take First Step Towards Creating 'Inorganic Life'
Post Date: 2011-09-15 14:09:36 by jwpegler
Scientists at the University of Glasgow say they have taken their first tentative steps towards creating 'life' from inorganic chemicals potentially defining the new area of 'inorganic biology'. Professor Lee Cronin, Gardiner Chair of Chemistry in the College of Science and Engineering, and his team have demonstrated a new way of making inorganic- chemical-cells or iCHELLs. Prof Cronin said: "All life on earth is based on organic biology (i.e. carbon in the form of amino acids, nucleotides, and sugars, etc.) but the inorganic world is considered to be inanimate. "What we are trying do is create self-replicating, evolving inorganic cells that would essentially be ...
Iron 'Veins' Are Secret of Promising New Hydrogen Storage Material
Post Date: 2011-09-13 18:50:17 by jwpegler
With a nod to biology, scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have a new approach to the problem of safely storing hydrogen in future fuel-cell-powered cars. Their idea: molecular scale "veins" of iron permeating grains of magnesium like a network of capillaries. The iron veins may transform magnesium from a promising candidate for hydrogen storage into a real- world winner. Hydrogen has been touted as a clean and efficient alternative to gasoline, but it has one big drawback: the lack of a safe, fast way to store it onboard a vehicle. According to NIST materials scientist Leo Bendersky, iron-veined magnesium could overcome this hurdle. The ...
