You just need to equip lolis with a bludgeon weapon and SH would be neatly neutralized

Toxico dangerousness?
Something like that ?

All of this has prompted many aviation experts to label the aircraft a hoax. It's not as if this was the first time Iran tried to troll the world with propaganda, bad Photoshop and bold declarations.

And, yes, it'd make sense if the aircraft whose picture is shown above is nothing but a mockup, but the size and shape (especially the cockpit area) are all wrong.

I don't just take in little girls, I take in silver hair maids too.

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.

Ars Technica has a pretty nice writeup on the plane. I cracked when I realized that the plane was made out of fiberglass. That was the kicker

All dogs in England to get microchips by 2016:

"Dog owners who refuse to fit Fido with a microchip may someday find themselves
fetching a hefty fine, the British government said Wednesday.

All dogs in England will have to be fitted with microchips by 2016, authorities said,
meaning that canines across the country will be chasing cars with a tiny circuit
embedded in the back of their necks.

Britain's Environment Department said that the chips would help reunite owners
with lost or stolen pets, promote animal welfare and take the pressure off animal
shelters."

So if it works wonders with domesticated animals, why not use them with kids <--- laugh if you want, but if this goes through one day goverments will take the next step.

Discovery News: First Bionic Eye Sees Light of Day in U.S.

Quote:

After years of research, the first bionic eye has seen the light of day in the United States, giving hope to the blind around the world.

Developed by Second Sight Medical Products, the Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System has helped more than 60 people recover partial sight, with some experiencing better results than others.

Consisting of 60 electrodes implanted in the retina and glasses fitted with a special mini camera, Argus II has already won the approval of European regulators. The US Food and Drug Administration is soon expected to follow suit, making this bionic eye the world's first to become widely available.

"It's the first bionic eye to go on the market in the world, the first in Europe and the first one in the U.S.," said Brian Mech, the California-based company's vice president of business development.

Those to benefit from Argus II are people with retinitis pigmentosa, a rare genetic disease, affecting about 100,000 people in the U.S., that results in the degeneration of the retinal photoreceptors.

The photoreceptor cells convert light into electrochemical impulses that are transmitted to the brain via the optic nerve, where they are decoded into images.

"The way the prosthesis works (is) it replaces the function of the photoreceptors," Mech told AFP.

Thirty people aged 28 to 77 took part in the clinical trial for the product, all of whom were completely blind.

Mech said the outcomes varied by participant.

"We had some patients who got just a little bit of benefit and others who could do amazing things like reading newspaper headlines," he said.

In some cases, the subjects could even see in color.

"Mostly they see in black and white, but we have demonstrated more recently we can produce color vision as well," Mech said.

According to Mech, Argus II is already available in several European countries for 73,000 euros ($99,120). A U.S. price has not been set but is likely to be higher, he said.

"Now we are (at) around 60 patients... We have tons of surgeries scheduled, the number is growing almost daily," he said.

Other researchers are also vying to develop bionic eyes of their own, that would offer higher resolution images with more electrodes implanted in the retina.

At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a team lead by John Wyatt is working on a system that would have up to 400 electrodes.

Daniel Palanker of California's Stanford University is proposing a different approach based on tiny photovoltaic cells instead of electrodes.

"We're thinking about implanting up to 5,000 of these cells at the back of the eye that would theoretically allow for a resolution that is ten times better," George Goetz, a member of Palanker's team, told AFP. This system would also help individuals who lost their sight due to age-related macular degeneration, he added.

These photovoltaic cells convert light into electrical impulses that stimulate the nerve cells in the retina, which then transmit the signals to the brain.

This system has successfully been tested in rats, and the first clinical trial could begin in a year, probably in France. Palanker is linked with French company Pixium Vision based in Paris.

Grace Shen, of the National Eye Institute that has supported both the Argus and Palanker projects, said work on stem cells and optogenetics were also important areas to focus on in developing treatments or the prevention of blindness. Through optogenetics, retina cells can be genetically modified to render them light-sensitive again.

"I think the bionic eye is something that is going to work in some patients and is not going to work with all patients, but it's an exciting time ahead," said Shen.
Science saves the day once again

Doctors seek help on cancer treatment from IBM supercomputer:

"IBM's Watson supercomputer has beaten expert "Jeopardy" quiz show
contestants, and its predecessor defeated a world chess champion. Now, doctors
hope it can help them outsmart cancer.

Oncologists at two medical groups have started to test IBM's Watson's
supercomputer system in an effort to improve speed and efficacy of treatments,
the company said on Friday.

The Maine Center for Cancer Medicine and Westmed Medical Group will begin
testing an application based on Watson's cognitive computing to help diagnose
lung cancer and recommend treatment, IBM said."

Japanese Flying Squid's Abilities Confirmed,

Quote:
There have been numerous sightings of a certain type of Japanese squid "flying" above the ocean's surface, and now scientists have offered an explanation.

How does the Japanese flying squid catch air? It releases a high-pressured water jet for propulsion, and then spreads its fins like wings to glide above the water, according to a new study from marine biologists at Hokkaido University.

Yes, it's by Japan once again.

Now that is truly innovation. o_o

Help Astronomers Name Pluto’s Tiniest Moons:

"It won’t be long before Pluto’s smallest moons, now called P4 and P5, are given
names worthy of their association with the god of the underworld. And you will
have a chance to vote for what you think the planetary runt’s tiniest satellites
should be called.

“I really want this to be something the whole world can be involved in,” said ace
moon-finder Mark Showalter, an astronomer at the SETI Institute.

Showalter and his colleagues have designed a website, translated into 12
languages, that you can use to submit votes for your favorite names. For two
weeks starting today, anyone with an internet connection can choose from
among a dozen names suggested by the team."
