Antonin Scalia: There Are 'Undoubtedly' Limits To A Person's Right To Carry Guns

Antonin Scalia: There Are 'Undoubtedly' Limits To A Person's Right To Carry Guns:
WASHINGTON -- Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia said Sunday that there are "undoubtedly" limits to a person's right to bear arms under the Second Amendment, but that future court cases will have to decide where to draw the line.
During an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," Scalia was asked whether lawmakers have the right to ban high-capacity gun magazines without violating a person's constitutional right to bear arms. The question comes less than two weeks after the Colorado shooting massacre that left 12 dead and dozens more injured -- and at a time when neither President Barack Obama nor Congress appear willing to touch the issue of gun contron.
"We'll see," Scalia said, suggesting that future court cases will determine what limitations on modern-day weapons are permissible.

Cloning The First Human (BBC Documentary)

Broadcast (2001) Doctors Panayiotis Zavos and Severino Antinori claim they are ready to embark on the greatest human experiment of our age. They say they will attempt to clone a human being before the year is out. Most people think the objections to this are ethical - human cloning would create many moral dilemmas.

There is another question that few ever ask: is the science actually ready yet for cloning healthy humans? Horizon follows the latest research, which has led many scientists to believe that Zavos and Antinori's plans to clone the first human could end in tragedy. The programme also meets couples like Matthew and Desire Racquer who think cloning offers them the only way to raise a child who is truly their own.

For decades, cloning remained within the realms of science fiction. The idea that instead of combining a sperm and an egg, a new human could be made from a single cell taken from an adult, seemed completely absurd. But that all changed in February 1997, when the Roslin Institute introduced the world to Dolly the sheep - the first animal cloned from an adult. Ever since Dolly, scientists have been continuing to experiment with cloning animals. So far, they have succeeded in cloning sheep, cattle, pigs, goats and mice, fuelling the belief that humans could be next.

An unreliable procedure

But even Dolly's creator, Professor Ian Wilmut, is concerned that beneath the veneer of success lies a disturbing reality. Most cloning attempts on animals so far have resulted in failed implantation or abnormal foetuses. Of the animals born alive, some soon die of catastrophic organ failure. Others appear to be healthy for weeks or even months, then die suddenly, sometimes from bizarre new illnesses which do not occur in nature.

Nvidia and Intel join AMD in Department of Energy's FastForward exascale computing project

Nvidia and Intel join AMD in Department of Energy's FastForward exascale computing project: Intel Sandy Bridge Chips

Nvidia has announced that it as secured a $12.4 million contract over the next two years from the US Department of Energy. In its announcement, the company focuses on the need for a "hetereogeneous" model of super computing, which is only fitting given that AMD, Intel, and Whamcloud will also be part of the FastForward DOE program. The purpose is to research exascale computing and will focus on energy efficiency as it tried to achieve the goal of a system that's much faster than current super computers, as Nvidia puts it:
Exascale systems will perform a quintillion floating point calculations per second (that’s a billion billion), making them 1,000 times faster than a one petaflop supercomputer. The world’s fastest computer today is...

Meditation, Exercise Could Protect You From The Flu

Meditation, Exercise Could Protect You From The Flu:
Who knew meditation could be so handy during cold and flu season?
A small new study finds that mindfulness meditation and moderate exercise seem to have protective effects against cold and flu, with people who engage in the practices having less severe, shorter and fewer symptoms of acute respiratory infection -- and fewer days missed from work due to the sickness -- than people who don't engage in either practice.
Specifically, undergoing mindfulness training was linked with a 40 to 50 percent decrease in symptoms, while exercise was linked with a 30 to 40 percent decrease in symptoms, researchers reported, compared with people who did neither activity.

Sage Stallone Dead; Sylvester Stallone's Son Was 36

Sage Stallone Dead; Sylvester Stallone's Son Was 36:
Sage Stallone, Sylvester Stallone's son, has died. He was 36.
The details surrounding the death are still unclear, but reports indicate that he was found in his L.A. apartment by either a maid or his girlfriend.
Paramedics were called to the home and pronounced him dead at the scene, with a prescription drug overdose the likely reason for his demise.
Sage Stallone
The prescription drug element to this story has not been confirmed at this time; however, Stallone's death earlier today has been confirmed.
Authorities are trying to determine if the death was intentional or accidental, but The Expendables 2 star Sylvester is said to be a "wreck."
Sage Stallone famously made his film debut alongside his father in the 1990 movie Rocky 5, playing the role of Rocky's son Robert Balboa.
Sage was the oldest of Sylvester's five kids, and his first of two with his first wife Sasha Czack. Our hearts go out to his family and friends.

why Apple wants to make the iWatch?

why Apple wants to make the iWatch?:
After TD' watch smartphone and I'm Watch and the Smart Watch from Sony, Apple has the iWatch developed a compelling concept.

Features such as a retina multi-touch display, FaceTime via the 8-megapixel camera, an integrated battery that can be charged wirelessly, Google Maps and countless downloadable apps via the App Store to make the concept really desirable. Of course, should not be missing from the iPhone sensors and interfaces known. Thus, the iWatch equipped with Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, three-axis gyroscope, accelerometer and ambient light sensor well.

many people say the Sony smartwath somehow takes design cues from Nano, if so, why Apple has to make a new neutral copy of Nano !

DARPA launches Integrated Hypersonics program; targeting full-scale test flight in 2016

DARPA launches Integrated Hypersonics program; targeting full-scale test flight in 2016:
The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has launched a new Integrated Hypersonics (IH) program, the purpose of which is to address technical challenges and improve understanding of long-range hypersonic flight through an initial full-scale baseline test of an existing hypersonic test vehicle, followed by a series of sub-scale flight tests, innovative ground-based testing, expanded modeling and simulation, and advanced analytic methods, culminating in a test flight of a full-scale hypersonic X-plane (HX) in 2016.

HX is envisioned as a recoverable next-generation configuration augmented with a rocket-based propulsion capability that will enable and reduce risk for highly maneuverable, long-range hypersonic platforms.

DARPA suggests that hypersonic technologies have the potential to provide the strategic advantage once afforded by stealth technologies—now threatened as other nations’ abilities in stealth and counter-stealth improve—to support a range of varied future national security missions.

Extreme hypersonic flight at Mach 20 (i.e., 20 times the speed of sound)—which would enable DoD to get anywhere in the world in less than one hour—is an area of research where significant scientific advancements have eluded researchers for decades. Due to programs by DARPA, the Army, and the Air Force in recent years, however, more information has been obtained about this challenging subject.

DoD’s hypersonic technology efforts have made significant advancements in our technical understanding of several critical areas including aerodynamics; aerothermal effects; and guidance, navigation and control, but additional unknowns exist.

History is rife with examples of different designs for ‘flying vehicles’ and approaches to the traditional commercial flight we all take for granted today. For an entirely new type of flight—extreme hypersonic—diverse solutions, approaches and perspectives informed by the knowledge gained from DoD’s previous efforts are critical to achieving our goals.
—Acting DARPA Director, Kaigham J. Gabriel

DARPA will host a Proposers’ Day on August 14, 2012, to detail the technical areas for which proposals are sought through an upcoming competitive broad agency announcement.

We do not yet have a complete hypersonic system solution. Programs like Integrated Hypersonics will leverage previous investments in this field and continue to reduce risk, inform development, and advance capabilities.
—Gregory Hulcher, director of Strategic Warfare, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics

The IH program expands hypersonic technology research to include five primary technical areas: thermal protection system and hot structures; aerodynamics; guidance, navigation, and control (GNC); range/instrumentation; and propulsion.

At Mach 20, vehicles flying inside the atmosphere experience intense heat exceeding 3,500 °F (1,0927 °C) as well as extreme pressure on the aeroshell. The thermal protection materials and hot structures technology area aims to advance understanding of high-temperature material characteristics to withstand both high thermal and structural loads. Another goal is to optimize structural designs and manufacturing processes to enable faster production of high-mach aeroshells.

The aerodynamics technology area focuses on future vehicle designs for different missions and addresses the effects of adding vertical and horizontal stabilizers or other control surfaces for enhanced aero-control of the vehicle. Aerodynamics seeks technology solutions to ensure the vehicle effectively manages energy to be able to glide to its destination. Desired technical advances in the GNC technology area include advances in software to enable the vehicle to make real-time, in-flight adjustments to changing parameters, such as high-altitude wind gusts, to stay on an optimal flight trajectory.

The range/instrumentation area seeks advanced technologies to embed data measurement sensors into the structure that can withstand the thermal and structural loads to provide real-time thermal and structural parameters, such as temperature, heat transfer, and how the aeroshell skin recedes due to heat. Embedding instrumentation that can provide real-time air data measurements on the vehicle during flight is also desired. Unlike subsonic aircraft that have external probes measuring air density, temperature and pressure of surrounding air, vehicles traveling Mach 20 can’t take external probe measurements. Vehicle concepts that make use of new collection and measurement assets are also being sought.

The propulsion technology area is developing a single, integrated launch vehicle designed to precisely insert a hypersonic glide vehicle into its desired trajectory, rather than adapting a booster designed for space missions. The propulsion area also addresses integrated rocket propulsion technology onboard vehicles to enable a vehicle to give itself an in-flight rocket boost to extend its glide range.

One of our most innovative, popular thinkers takes on-in exhilarating style-one of our key questions: Where do good ideas come from?

With Where Good Ideas Come From, Steven Johnson pairs the insight of his bestselling Everything Bad Is Good for You and the dazzling erudition of The Ghost Map and The Invention of Air to address an urgent and universal question: What sparks the flash of brilliance? How does groundbreaking innovation happen? Answering in his infectious, culturally omnivorous style, using his fluency in fields from neurobiology to popular culture, Johnson provides the complete, exciting, and encouraging story of how we generate the ideas that push our careers, our lives, our society, and our culture forward.

Beginning with Charles Darwin's first encounter with the teeming ecosystem of the coral reef and drawing connections to the intellectual hyper productivity of modern mega-cities and to the instant success of YouTube, Johnson shows us that the question we need to ask is, What kind of environment fosters the development of good ideas? His answers are never less than revelatory, convincing, and inspiring as Johnson identifies the seven key principles to the genesis of such ideas, and traces them across time and disciplines.

Most exhilarating is Johnson's conclusion that with today's tools and environment, radical innovation is extraordinarily accessible to those who know how to cultivate it. Where Good Ideas Come From is essential reading for anyone who wants to know how to come up with tomorrow's great ideas. People often credit their ideas to individual "Eureka!" moments. But Steven Johnson shows how history tells a different story. His fascinating tour takes us from the "liquid networks" of London's coffee houses to Charles Darwin's long, slow hunch to today's high-velocity web. TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes.

Twitter account re-tweets public photos of peoples' debit cards

Twitter account re-tweets public photos of peoples' debit cards: Photo

While over-sharing online typically involves annoying-but-harmless pictures of food on Instagram, it's interesting to consider whether compulsive social media use or sheer thoughtlessness is to blame for the contents of @NeedADebitCard, a Twitter account that aggregates publicly tweeted photos of peoples' debit and ATM cards. While some of the photos are blurry or cropped, many clearly display the full names and account details, and in some cases even addresses, of their owners. Several posts proudly show expired or damaged cards being cut in half, their owners presumably believing, for whatever reason, that to be sufficient in deterring thieves. The absence of the card's three-digit security code, usually located on the back, is also...
