Fend Off Trolls, Bots and Jerks With ‘Empathy’ Test:

"A human rights group is introducing a new take on CAPTCHAs, those little boxes
that make you type in a word to prove you are human before you can comment or
register for a site. Their version doesn’t just present a scrambled word to be
deciphered, but instead forces a person to choose the right word to unscramble
based on the proper emotional response to a human rights violation.

Civil Rights Defenders, the Swedish-based group that developed the tool, hopes the
Civil Rights Captcha will help sites block spiders and bots, while letting humans in —
and hopefully educating the humans at the same time."

Bing is the most heavily poisoned search engine, study says:

"Bing search results are more affected by poisoning than those of other search
engines, according to a study by SophosLabs.

Search engine poisoning attacks are designed to skew results so that dodgy sites -
anything from malware infected websites to payday loan sites - appear prominently
in the index of sites related to popular search terms. In many cases the tactic is so
successful that malware sites appear in the first page of results for popular search
terms, in sometimes much higher than legitimate websites. More recently,
miscreants have began trying to manipulate image search results."

I heard someone claim that embryonic stem cell research shouldn't continue because most advances in stem cell research has not involved embryos. I decided I wanted to seek out whether that is true. Is that a false claim? Has embryonic stem cell research proved to be more beneficial than that person claimed?

I'd say this is a better reason that embryonic stem cell research isn't vital to continue.

Holy wow. Couldn't this eventually lead to virtual immortality by constantly replacing damaged organs?

You can't exactly replace brain cells without forgoing their original neural connections.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Oh what a shame...

Can we talk speculations here?
Could nano-machines do it? Perhaps by replacing the organs cell-by-cell...Maybe rapid-healing stimpaks if not immortality?

It may be awesome for those living, but it'd eventually compound the problem of exploding population growth of mankind.

Brb, need to select 1% humanity to govern as gods and kill off 99% and make some good fertilizers out of em.

Fixed for realism.

Speaking of which does anyone know what's the aftermath of this? Is it still ongoing or did he pass scrutiny or did he botch it?

cmiiw, but wouldn't a relationship between primes means our current computer cryptography would soon be obsolete?

Also: cells have some sort of limit to the amount of times they can reproduce themselves. It's the reason clones like Dolly had such short lives.

Telomeres length/thickness, when a cell is cloned it retains its original telemere length. Unless we have a way to regenerate the buffer AND restore the lost DNA due to age degradation, cloning cannot be viable unless to create organs for harvest or a unskilled workforce.

Actually cancer cells are mutated cells, they die too. It is just that they may actually be warped or split faster.

Apple Maps outs secret military site, irks Taiwan

Quote:
The Apple Maps team can't seem to catch a break. The glitches with the new Maps app that Cupertino home-brewed for iOS 6 have been serious enough that even Mad Magazine is having a laugh about the fiasco.
More serious is the grumpy face Taiwan's Defense Ministry made when it saw a satellite image of one of its top-secret long-range radar bases that had been accessed with an iPhone 5.

SpaceX cargo ship reaches International Space Station

Quote:
The Dragon's cargo includes a freezer to ferry science samples back and forth between the station and Earth.
I hope this thing has something like a biofilter system onboard that fires ionised plasma at anything that lives.

Well Dragon marks a somewhat return to normal space operations for the United States. While we still aren't moving people, that is on the table as soon as Dragon passes her safety requirements to the satifaction of those that will be sending the people into space.

Cygnus should be going up to join Dragon in delivering cargo in December.

NASA's Orion is still a few years away, but there are other private ventures that are more high tech in style that should also be coming out before the end of the decade. One was rather similar to the fictional PAN-AM owned Space Plane in 2001 A Space Odyssey. So if we continue on these lines...it looks like we have stalled for 20 to 30 years verses what we thought things would be like in 2001. And even then, there is no spaceship Discovery on the horizon. Only the Orion's with larger equipment modules attached to them for trips to asteroids and Mars. Jupiter and Saturn are still a ways off. An actual spaceship would be nice. We've only had spacecraft up until now. Even the space shuttles were not quite ships.
