Researchers Developing Tech to Allow Dogs to Call 911 in Emergencies
Post Date: 2017-06-21 20:50:01 by cranky
Researchers are woking to develop technology to allow dogs to call 911 during an emergency by using items such as a dog-friendly touchscreen display. Melody Jackson, director of the animal-computer interaction lab at the Georgia Institute of Technology, first thought of the idea after her grandmother suffered from a fall. She had to wait for her neighbor to get home from work to get up, Jackson explained to CNN. The family obviously was terrified, so we bought her one of those necklaces, those alert necklaces
Well, she didnt like wearing it. The incident, which happened around twenty years ago, stuck in Jacksons mind and prompted her ...
ASTEROID WARNING: NASA discovers TEN ‘potentially hazardous’ rocks close to Earth
Post Date: 2017-06-11 23:20:27 by redleghunter
The space agency has been working tirelessly to identify dangers that Earth face from space, and has said that it has found 10 new asteroids of meteors which it believes could harm life on Earth. The discovery was made by NASAs asteroid detecting mission Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer or NEOWISE. Amy Mainzer, NEOWISE principal investigator from NASAs Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, said: NEOWISE is not only discovering previously uncharted asteroids and comets, but it is providing excellent data on many of those already in our catalog. It is also proving to be an invaluable tool in in the refining and perfecting of ...

Asteroid worth $10,000 quadrillion ‘could transform global economy’
Post Date: 2017-05-25 18:26:25 by cranky
NASA scientists are outdoing themselves yet again: by reworking the planned route for a robotic mission to a giant asteroid worth $10,000 quadrillion, theyve managed to cut costs, launch sooner and arrive four years earlier than planned. Not bad. The Psyche planetoid, measuring 240km (149 miles) in diameter, is located in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and is made almost entirely of iron and nickel. At current market prices, such an asteroid, a truly unique object in our solar system, is estimated to be worth $10,000 quadrillion ($10,000,000,000,000,000,000). That is, if you could successfully tow it into orbit and then mine it (and find someone to buy all of it, of ...
Watch two Maglev trains passing each other at 500 mph
Post Date: 2017-05-23 10:26:24 by Willie Green
Dont blink. Seriously, dont blinkif you do, youll miss the fraction of a second it takes for these two Maglev trains to pass each other. On Saturday, YouTube account TheBearPoncho posted a 31-second video of two Shanghai Maglev trains passing each other. Named after electromagnetic levitation used to frictionlessly propel the trains at high rates of speed, the Maglev train that the video recorded from was traveling at 267 mph at the time of the passing, the YouTuber wrote. That means, if the other train was going the same speed, the passengers would have witnessed the other train passing at about 534 mph, accounting for the space between the two trains. ...
DELINGPOLE: ‘Penises Cause Climate Change’; Progressives Fooled By Peer-Reviewed Hoax Study
Post Date: 2017-05-20 14:23:10 by cranky
Gender studies is a fake academic industry populated by charlatans, deranged activists and gullible idiots. Now, a pair of enterprising hoaxers has proved it scientifically by persuading an academic journal to peer-review and publish their paper claiming that the penis is not really a male genital organ but a social construct. The paper, published by Cogent Social Sciences a multidisciplinary open access journal offering high quality peer review across the social sciences also claims that penises are responsible for causing climate change. The two hoaxers are Peter Boghossian, a full-time faculty member in the Philosophy department at Portland State University, ...
Journal Trolled With Study About a Fake Disease From "Seinfeld"
Post Date: 2017-05-09 12:13:29 by Tooconservative
You'd think "The Arthur Vandelay Urological Research Institute" would be a dead giveaway. But it seems some journal editors don't know their Seinfeld reruns.John McCool wants to expose what he calls "predatory journals." These are periodicals with science-y sounding names that will publish research for a hefty fee and don't have the most robust peer review process (if any), taking advantage of scientists' need to "publish or perish" McCool thought the Urology & Nephrology Open Access Journal might be one of these, so he submitted a paper based on a fake disease from a "Seinfeld" episode and littered the document with references to ...

The cat in famous thought experiment can be alive and dead at the same timePhysicists amplified pairs of classical states of light to generate 'enlarged' catThis could uncover the limit, if one exists, of the quantum world, they say Scientists have developed a way to 'breed' Schrodinger's hypothetical cat in a breakthrough experiment that could bridge the gap between the quantum and the visible - or classical - worlds. The cat in the famous thought experiment can be alive and dead at the same time, in a quantum phenomenon known as superposition. But, whether this effect translates to larger objects has long remained a mystery. Physicists have now created a way to ...
Former Obama Official: Bureaucrats Manipulate Climate Stats To Influence Policy

A former member of the Obama administration claims Washington D.C. often uses misleading news releases about climate data to influence public opinion. Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obamas administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion. What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, Id say, misleading, sometimes just wrong, Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data. He pointed to a National Climate Assessment ...
Cryogenically frozen brains will be 'woken up' and transplanted in donor bodies within three years, says surgeon
Post Date: 2017-04-27 07:23:27 by cranky
People who have had their brains cryogenically frozen could be 'woken up' within three years, a pioneering Italian surgeon has claimed. Professor Sergio Canavero, Director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, is aiming to carry out the first human head transplant within 10 months and then wants to begin trials on brain transplants. If the procedures are successful, he believes that frozen brains could be thawed and inserted into a donor body. Hundreds of people who are dying or paralysed have had their bodies or brains cryogenically preserved in the hope that medical science will be able to bring them back to life and cure their conditions. Although many experts are ...

The carmakers truck, dubbed Project Portal," fulfills a promise Toyota made in November to scale up the fuel cell system used in its Mirai sedan for a semi as part of a feasibility study. The Class 8 truck Toyota created using a Kenworth chassis, ...
Baltimore's solar-powered water wheel has now removed 1.1 million lbs of rubbish from the river
Post Date: 2017-04-19 11:05:40 by Willie Green
This is "Mr.Trash Wheel" a water wheel in Baltimore that removes rubbish from the river. The water wheel is powered by the river's current, which lifts rubbish and debris from the water and deposits it into a dumpster. The rubbish is then sent to be incinerated, which generates power for some homes in Maryland. When there isn't enough water current, there is a solar panel attached to the water wheel to provide additional power. Mr.Trash has been in use since 2014, removing over 1 million lbs of rubbish from Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Some of that rubbish includes 8.9 million cigarette butts and half a million polystyrene ...

Astronomers capture image of elusive force that connects the universe
Post Date: 2017-04-13 16:58:47 by cranky
In this false color map, the white regions depict galaxies, while the red regions depict the presence of the dark matter bridge. For the first time ever, astronomers have an image of the bridge that ties galaxies together. Captured by researchers at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, the composite image is proof that dark matter acts as a giant intergalactic web that connects galaxies throughout space and time. Their findings were published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. Dark matter is an invisible force that doesnt emit or reflect light, and is only detectable through gravity. It makes up around 27 percent of the ...
Humans can now control turtles with their minds

It sounds like something Dr. Evil from Austin Powers might have come up with. But unlike sharks with laser beams attached to their heads, mindcontrolled turtles are now a reality. Thats right, researchers in Korea have figured out a way to control how turtles move with human thought. The new technology uses the turtles natural flight or fight response to tell it which direction to swim. The system, created by researchers from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), combines two technologies opposite to one another: braintocomputer interfaces (BCIs), which allow humans to control machines via thought and computerto ...
Dodge unveils one-seat 840-horsepower muscle car
Post Date: 2017-04-12 09:17:13 by cranky
The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is not a car for normal people. For starters, it comes standard with only one seat. Because passenger seats, and passengers, weigh too much and would slow it down. Your friends aren't worth that. Then there's the engine. The Demon's 840-horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged V8 is the most powerful V8 engine ever put into a regular production car. That makes the Demon the most powerful factory-produced muscle car...ever. That record had previously been held by the 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger Hellcat which seems like a house cat compared to the Demon, a car just unveiled ahead of the New York International Auto Show. The Demon has already ...

Marijuana DOES cause schizophrenia and triggers heart attacks, experts say in landmark study that slams most of the drug's medical benefits as 'unproven'
Post Date: 2017-01-12 20:52:32 by misterwhite
Marijuana does raise the risk of getting schizophrenia and triggers heart attacks, according to the most significant study on the drug's effects to date. A federal advisory panel admitted cannabis can almost certainly ease chronic pain, and might help some people sleep. But it dismisses most of the drug's other supposedly 'medical benefits' as unproven. Crucially, the researchers concluded there is not enough research to say whether marijuana effectively treats epilepsy - one of the most widely-recognized reasons for cannabis prescriptions. The report also casts doubt on using cannabis to treat cancers, irritable bowel syndrome, or certain symptoms of Parkinson's ...
Science has discovered a new human organ
