Time to save up your plastic junk for recyling: mini shredder and FilaMaker
Post Date: 2013-02-01 16:07:49 by A K A Stone
In 2012, Marcus Thymark of Germany introduced his mini DIY shredder that can be used to recycle all your failed prints or any other plastic scrap. A year later, Marcus has improved his system and also started a new open source project: FilaMaker. FilaMaker is a personal filament producing machine that grinds old plastic and make new filament for your 3D printer. You can produce standard 1.75 mm or 3 mm filament by changing only one nozzle. The FilaMaker is still in development. Marcus is currently making some test with extruders. FilaMaker uses high pressure system which can work with low temperature to prevent degradation of plastic. The high pressure system can be used for plastic ...
Can We Trust CBS or CNET Again After a Scandal This Shady?
Post Date: 2013-01-14 21:20:14 by A K A Stone
CNET, one of the Internet's first and most influential authorities on gadgets and tech news, watched its editorial integrity spiral out of control Monday, with staffers quitting and editors left to explain themselves in the wake of explosive new charges over its annual Consumer Electronics Show awards — a scandal, it would appear, that goes all the way to the top of its corporate umbrella, and could shake the entire ecosystem of online tech journalism.

New thermoelectric material sucks electricity out of hot water
Post Date: 2013-01-01 17:36:36 by A K A Stone
When humans produce energy, we do it very inefficiently. Usually what happens is that we make something very hot (like a car engine), use a tiny bit of that energy to do work, and then spend even more energy getting rid of all the waste heat. Panasonic has developed a new thermoelectric material that can get a chunk of that energy back. A thermoelectric material is something that can convert heat directly into electricity. It's not a new thing, but generally it's so inefficient that anyone who's serious about capturing electricity through heat instead uses some sort of steam generator. Where thermoelectrics have potential is in microgenerators, where you're just looking ...
Unlocking New Talents in Nature: Protein Engineers Create New Biocatalysts
Post Date: 2012-12-30 16:45:09 by A K A Stone
Dec. 20, 2012 Protein engineers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have tapped into a hidden talent of one of nature's most versatile catalysts. The enzyme cytochrome P450 is nature's premier oxidation catalyst -- a protein that typically promotes reactions that add oxygen atoms to other chemicals. Now the Caltech researchers have engineered new versions of the enzyme, unlocking its ability to drive a completely different and synthetically useful reaction that does not take place in nature. The new biocatalysts can be used to make natural products -- such as hormones, pheromones, and insecticides -- as well as pharmaceutical drugs, like antibiotics, in a ...
Helium Reserves, Cutting Spending, and Prudence
Post Date: 2012-12-28 13:08:50 by Abcdefg
In the comments of James' excellent post on the imprudence of arbitrarily cutting Federal workers, a discussion arose about "wasteful" Federal spending. In that discussion, James said: It never ceases to amaze me how hard it is to muster the political backbone to make obvious cuts. Aren't we still subsiding helium for dirigibles? This caught my attention because it's a subject near and dear to my heart: the absolutely, positively stupid, shortsighted, and ignorant manner in which Congress decided to privatize the Federal Helium Reserves. In the name, of course, of cutting costs. A little background is in order. It's true that yes, the Federal Helium Reserves were ...

Summation of Paper: Deliberately concealing information from parents for the sole purpose of getting them to comply with an official vaccination schedule could be considered as a form of ethical violation or misconduct. Official documents obtained from the UK Department of Health (DH) and the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) reveal that the British health authorities have been engaging in such practice for the last 30 years, apparently for the sole purpose of protecting the national vaccination program.

Study On Rising Sea Levels Likely Confirms Existence Of Global Warming
Post Date: 2012-12-02 12:45:48 by Brian S
A newly released study finds that ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica are disappearing three times faster than they were two decades ago, the latest evidence supporting the existence of global warming. The study was published in the journal Science and is considered an extremely accurate portrayal of ice melts in these polar regions. According to the papers authors, the rapid polar ice melting has caused an increase in sea level that may become problematic to low coastal regions. Perhaps the most alarming data found by the researchers was in Greenland where the ice was melting an estimated five times the rate it was in the mid-1990s. Melt from Greenland accounted for a whopping ...
Will The Peak Of The Solar Cycle In 2013 Produce Technology Crippling Solar Super Storms?
Post Date: 2012-11-26 12:04:40 by hondo68
Our sun is becoming increasingly unstable, and most people have no idea the complete and utter devastation that a massive solar storm could potentially cause. A giant solar storm could potentially take out satellites, GPS systems, electrical grids, communication networks and pretty much anything else that runs on electricity or that relies upon electronics. And considering how dependent our society has become on technology, we are talking about an event that could possibly bring about the end of the world as we know it. Right now, solar activity is increasing as we approach the peak of Solar Cycle 24. But the worst is yet to come. Scientists are expecting a significant increase in coronal ...
Fetuses Yawn in the Womb, 4D Scans Suggest
Post Date: 2012-11-23 20:08:53 by A K A Stone
The 4D scans of 15 healthy fetuses, by Durham and Lancaster Universities, also suggest that yawning is a developmental process which could potentially give doctors another index of a fetus' health. The study is published Nov. 21 in the journal PLOS ONE. While some researchers have suggested that fetuses yawn, others have disagreed and claim it is simple mouth opening. But the new research clearly distinguished 'yawning' from 'non-yawn mouth opening' based on the duration of mouth opening. The researchers did this by using the 4D video footage to closely examine all events where a mouth stretch occurred in the fetus. Using their newly developed criteria, the ...
Human Intelligence Slowly Declining, Says Leading Geneticist
Post Date: 2012-11-13 10:42:21 by Brian S
Humans are slowly losing their cognitive capabilities as adverse genetic mutations fail to be weeded out by evolutionary pressures, according to a bold hypothesis put forward by Dr. Gerald Crabtree of Stanford University. I would wager that if an average citizen from Athens of 1000 BC were to appear suddenly among us, he or she would be among the brightest and most intellectually alive of our colleagues and companions, with a good memory, a broad range of ideas, and a clear-sighted view of important issues. Furthermore, I would guess that he or she would be among the most emotionally stable of our friends and colleagues, the leading geneticist began his article in the ...
Industry Radiation Experts Nail it: Greenhouse Gas Theory Debunked
Post Date: 2012-10-22 18:28:19 by Capitalist Eric
Typical Industrial Infrared Heater ( F J Evans Engineering Co) Millions of hours of commercial tests have scorched the cornerstone of global warming science: the disputed greenhouse gas effect. Hidden in plain sight for years has sat irrefutable evidence from heating manufacturers to prove that infrared radiation does not heat the air. Is this a big deal? You bet. It means that only in the fantasy world of climatologists computer models can man-made global warming still exist. Below Carl Brehmer is first to go public with this compelling new analysis.

Us Air Force’S 1950S Supersonic Flying Saucer Declassified
Post Date: 2012-10-09 12:29:32 by Brian S
Tighten the strap on your tinfoil hat: Recently declassified documents show that the US Air Force was working on, and perhaps had already built, a supersonic flying saucer in 1956.The aircraft, which had the code name Project 1794, was developed by the USAF and Avro Canada in the 1950s. One declassified memo, which seems to be the conclusion of initial research and prototyping, says that Project 1794 is a flying saucer capable of between Mach 3 and Mach 4, (2,300-3,000 mph) a service ceiling of over 100,000 feet (30,500m), and a range of around 1,000 nautical miles (1,150mi, 1850km).As far as we can tell, the supersonic flying saucer would propel itself by rotating an outer ...
Archaeologists Return To Ancient Greek ‘Computer’ Wreck Site: Official
Post Date: 2012-10-05 16:11:40 by Brian S
A new search has begun at a Greek island where an ancient device known as the worlds oldest computer was found over a century ago, an official said Thursday, adding that other discoveries were possible. Archaeologists this week returned to Antikythera, the Aegean Sea island where sponge divers in 1900-1901 found the so-called Antikythera Mechanism, a remarkable 2nd-century BCE device that tracked the cycles of the solar system. These are unexplored sea depths beneath a trade route known since antiquity, said Angeliki Simosi, head of Greeces ephorate of underwater antiquities. This is virgin territory, she told AFP. Believed to operate by ...
Twin black holes puzzle astronomers
Post Date: 2012-10-03 20:51:23 by We The People
LANSING, Mich., Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Two black holes discovered in an ancient cluster of stars in our galaxy may require rethinking our understanding of such clusters, U.S. astronomers say. The astronomers studied a globular cluster called Messier 22 more than 10,000 light-years from Earth, hoping to find evidence of a rare type of black hole in the cluster's center, what scientists call an intermediate-mass black hole. Such black holes are more massive than some --a few or more times the sun's mass -- but smaller than the super-massive black holes found at the cores of galaxies. "We didn't find what we were looking for, but instead found something very surprising -- two ...
35 Years Later, Voyager 1 Is Heading For The Stars
Post Date: 2012-09-04 11:35:03 by Brian S
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) -- Thirty-five years after leaving Earth, Voyager 1 is reaching for the stars. Sooner or later, the workhorse spacecraft will bid adieu to the solar system and enter a new realm of space - the first time a manmade object will have escaped to the other side. Perhaps no one on Earth will relish the moment more than 76-year-old Ed Stone, who has toiled on the project from the start. "We're anxious to get outside and find what's out there," he said. When NASA's Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 first rocketed out of Earth's grip in 1977, no one knew how long they would live. Now, they are the longest-operating spacecraft in history and the most distant, ...

Climate Change To Blame For Extreme Heat: NASA Scientist
Post Date: 2012-08-05 12:50:55 by Brian S
Human-driven climate change is to blame for a series of increasingly hot summers and the situation is already worse than was expected just two decades ago, a top NASA scientist said on Saturday. James Hansen, who directs the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, wrote in the Washington Post that even his grim predictions of a warming future, delivered before the US Senate in 1988, were too weak. I have a confession to make: I was too optimistic, Hansen wrote. My projections about increasing global temperature have been proved true. But I failed to fully explore how quickly that average rise would drive an increase in extreme weather. Hansen and ...
Koch-Funded Climate Scientist: I Was Wrong, Humans Are To Blame

The founder and director of a climate change study project funded heavily by the Koch brothers, who last year reversed course and said he believed global warming was real, has gone one step further, writing in a weekend op-ed in the New York Times that he is now convinced the phenomenon is caused by humans. In a piece titled, The Conversion of a Climate-Change Skeptic, Richard A. Muller, a University of California, Berkley physicist who founded the Berkley Earth Surface Temperature study (BEST) wrote that his, total turnaround, in such a short time, was driven by a new report from the group that concluded for the first time that global warming is a man-made problem. ...
Nasa Warns 97 Percent Of Greenland Ice Sheet Surface Melted In Four Days
Post Date: 2012-07-26 12:28:37 by Brian S
The Greenland ice sheet melted at a faster rate this month than at any other time in recorded history, with virtually the entire ice sheet showing signs of thaw. The rapid melting over just four days was captured by three satellites. It has stunned and alarmed scientists, and deepened fears about the pace and future consequences of climate change. In a statement posted on Nasas website on Tuesday, scientists admitted the satellite data was so striking they thought at first there had to be a mistake. This was so extraordinary that at first I questioned the result: was this real or was it due to a data error? Son Nghiem of Nasas jet propulsion laboratory in ...
Future wars may be waged with mind-controlled weaponry, Royal Society warns
Post Date: 2012-07-24 09:05:21 by A K A Stone
Neuroscience has ramifications for future warfare, and the scientific community must be more aware. So says a report published today by the Royal Society titled Neuroscience, conflict and security, which cites interest in neuroscience from the military community, and identifies particular technologies that may arise. Among them is the potential for "neural interface systems" (NIS) to bring about weapons controllable by the human mind, though the reports also discusses more benign military applications of neuroscience, such as fostering a revolution in prosthetic limbs. Brain-controlled technology
The report distinguishes between two types of neural interface: those that "input into" ...
Tree-rings prove climate was WARMER in Roman and Medieval times than it is now - and world has been cooling for 2,000 years
Post Date: 2012-07-11 13:30:32 by Capitalist Eric
Rings in fossilised pine trees have proven that the world was much warmer than previously thought - and the earth has been slowly COOLING for 2,000 years. Measurements stretching back to 138BC prove that the Earth is slowly cooling due to changes in the distance between the Earth and the sun. The finding may force scientists to rethink current theories of the impact of global warming. It is the first time that researchers have been able to accurately measure trends in global temperature over the last two millennia. Over that time, the world has been getting cooler - and previous estimates, used as the basis for current climate science, are wrong. Their findings demonstrate that this ...
