THUNDERCATS

Series Coming Soon to Cartoon Network

Roaring to life through WBA and Studio4°C's use of the Japanese animated artistry of anime, "ThunderCats" characters Lion-O, Mumm-Ra, Panthro, Cheetara and others will spring off the screen with realistic cat-like characteristics inconceivable in previous incarnations.

The new "ThunderCats" will appeal to viewers who have loved the characters all their lives as well as young newcomers to the franchise. A sweeping tale combining swords and science and boasting ferocious battles with the highest of stakes, the grand origin story of Prince Lion-O's ascension to the throne - and of those who would thwart his destiny at any cost - takes on epic dimensions in this sharp new telling. As the forces of good and evil battle each other in the quest for the fabled Stones of Power, Lion-O and his champions learn valuable lessons of loyalty, honor and mortality in every episode.

"ThunderCats" is executive produced by Sam Register ("Teen Titans," "Ben 10," "Batman: The Brave and the Bold"). Michael Jelenic ("Batman: The Brave and the Bold," "Wonder Woman") and Ethan Spaulding ("Avatar: The Last Airbender") are the producers.

Russian wartime Cossack dance-off set to Run DMC
In this 1941 video, Russian soldiers are seen engaged in a precursor of the modern dance-off; to drive home the point, some wag has set the proceedings to Run DMC's "It's Like That," which is curiously fitting.

..............Yogendra Singh Yadav was a member of an Indian grenadier battalion during a conflict with Pakistan in 1999. Their mission was to climb "Tiger Hill" (actually a big-ass mountain), and neutralize the three enemy bunkers at the top. Unfortunately, this meant climbing up a sheer hundred-foot cliff-face of solid ice. Since they didn't want to all climb up one at a time with ice-axes, they decided they'd send one guy up, and he'd fasten the ropes to the cliff as he went, so everyone else could climb up the sissy way. Yadav, being awesome, volunteered.

Half way up the icy cliff-o'-doom, enemies stationed on an adjacent mountain opened fire, shooting them with an RPG, then spraying assault-rifle fire all over the cliff. Half his squad was killed, including the commander, and the rest were scattered and disorganized. Yadav, in spite of being shot three times, kept climbing......................

.................... At this point lieutenant Paul Jurgen Vollmer yelled out over the noise asking if York was English. See, in WWI, no one really took the Americans very seriously, and everyone thought of them as the rookies. Vollmer figured this crazy/awesome/ballsy soldier must be some kind of English superman who was showing these sissy Americans how it was done. When York said he was American, Vollmer replied "Good Lord! If you won't shoot any more I will make them give up."

Ten minutes later, 133 men came walking towards the remains of York's battalion. Lieutenant Woods, York's superior at first thought it was a German counter-attack until he saw York, who saluted and said "Corporal York reports with prisoners, sir." When the stunned officer asked how many, York replied "Honest, Lieutenant, I don't know."..................

..............In To Hell and Back, Audie Murphy plays Audie Murphy, a badass war hero who proves his worth on the battlefield with his awesome badassery. The movie was the highest-grossing film Universal made, a record it held for 20 years until the making of Jaws. That's right, they actually needed a movie about a giant, man-eating, shark to top Audie Murphy's awesomeness.

Shigeo Tokuda

The public persona:

Shigeo Tokuda is an average 76-year-old retired travel agent, currently living with his wife and daughter in Tokyo. Like many retirees, he continues working part-time to keep himself busy. In America, he'd probably wind up working as a door greeter at Walmart. Or maybe work the register at a quiet bed and breakfast out in the country. Something to pass the time in your golden years.

The secret identity:

Tokuda had a better idea. His part-time job is being one of the biggest porn actors in Japan. Described as a "superstar of the elder porn genre," Tokuda has appeared in over 350 smut films, putting his penis into hundreds of women between the ages of 20 and 70. Oh, and he says his family has absolutely no idea about any of this.

It all started when Tokuda wanted to watch a porn movie but could not bring himself to meet the criticizing gaze of the apathetic teen employees at the video store. He then decided to buy it directly from the production company and somehow became friends with a director there. One day he was offered a chance to star in some of the studio's senior-themed movies. Surprisingly, the ex-businessman who was too shy to buy porn the regular way eventually agreed to show his erection on camera. Then he did it again. And again. More than 350 times.

"Shigeo Tokuda" is not his real name (we're assuming the Japanese translates to something like "Dick Cockrod"), and the septuagenarian smut cowboy has been hiding under that pseudonym for 14 years.

Although his face is clearly visible in his movies (when not buried between a pair of 20-year-old boobs), there's no serious risk of Tokuda's loved-ones finding out his secret because, to our surprise, watching weird porn is not a government-enforced pastime in Japan (we're going to take a wild guess and say that they don't read Cracked either). Hence Tokuda plans to keep getting paid to nail women a quarter his age until he's 80 and beyond. We're thinking that makes even Bill Gates' retirement plan look like a big pile of shit.

Having experienced the amazing pain of appendicitis last year, and feeling grateful for being alive (but couldn't walk for a few days) after surgery, Dr. Rogozov is awesome to me. I believe that, seriously, that there should be a nobel prize for awesomeness.

“I did not sleep at all last night. It hurts like the devil! A snowstorm whipping through my soul, wailing like a hundred jackals. Still no obvious symptoms that perforation is imminent, but an oppressive feeling of foreboding hangs over me . . . This is it . . . I have to think through the only possible way out: to operate on myself . . . It’s almost impossible . . . but I can’t just fold my arms and give up.

Funny, i too was in denial for the whole day. I even drove for 60Kms. and went on a date before i can no longer take the pain.

How is a fictional character awesome?

And doesn't that "When I get sad... be awesome instead" thing apply rather to a certain Audie Murphy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audie_Murphy)? He's the guy who got a bit shell-shocked during the war, but not before earning the Medal of Honor and 32 others. Anyways, shell-shock treatment got him addicted to a drug, and when he realized he was addicted he locked himself up and quit cold turkey.

One story says that Warren Buffet was once in a dinner with friends and how one of them boasted how expensive the wine was. When the waiter was about to pour the wine into Buffet's glass, he reportedly covered the mouth of the glass with his hand and said, "no, thanks, i'll take the cash." :lol:

^^^ Judging from the video itself, I find the dog head fake. IMO, severed neck won't have the adequate muscle weight to move the head as was shown in the video.

But I'd like to see more info about the cyborg dog.

Geologist Explains How Awesomely Powerful The Japan Quake Was

Fabrizio Bensch / Reuters via Boingboing (http://www.boingboing.net/2011/03/14/geologist-explains-s.html)

I've been reading about some pretty astounding impacts of last week's 8.9 earthquake. For instance, there's the fact that the quake not only shook Japan, it moved the country. Specifically, pushed it Westward by about 8 feet (http://www.space.com/11115-japan-earthquake-shortened-earth-days.html). The US Geological Survey confirmed this to Space.com, as well as the fact that the quake shifted Earth's axis by 6.5 inches. And then, there's the news from a lab at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., where geophysicist Richard Gross has found that the quake also sped up Earth's spin, just a little a bit. Days are now 1.8 microseconds shorter, by his estimation.

How does all of this make sense? I've got a better understanding now, having read this great Scientific American guest blog post by geologist and blogger Chris Rowan (http://www.scientificamerican.com/blog/post.cfm?id=japan-eqarthquake-explainer-2011-03-14). He covers all sorts of good information about the earthquake and the tsunami. From how we can tell that Japan moved, and why ... to what's going on with the changing numbers on how powerful this quake really was.

Quote
    GPS stations in Japan - installed to measure the slow build-up of elastic strain in the crust between big earthquakes - show most of Eastern Honshu moving several metres to the east as a few centuries worth of that elastic strain - which pushes the crust in Japan westwards and upwards - was released over the space of a few minutes.

    If you're wondering why there is some still some confusion over exactly how large this earthquake was, it's because - rather counter-intuitively - measuring the magnitude of large earthquakes is actually more difficult than it is for smaller earthquakes. To estimate earthquake magnitudes, you look at the amplitude of the seismic waves it generates: the larger the amplitude of the waves, the larger the magnitude of the earthquake that produced them. However, in very large earthquakes, this relationship starts to break down, at least for the frequencies of seismic waves that are generally used to produce the quick magnitude estimates: they 'saturate', or stop increasing in amplitude as the earthquake magnitude does. This means that the magnitude estimates for the largest earthquakes will be somewhat underestimated until seismologists look at lower frequency seismic waves, which are less susceptible to this saturation effect.

It's speculated that Europa has a liquid water layer underneath the ice, which causes the cracks on the surface, much like plate tectonics on earth.

If we do need fresh water in the far future, I think we'll get it from Europa.

But for me the most awesome moon is Io. That's full of volcanic activity. Very interesting place.

We are in Arahama area. Looks like there is a dog. There is a dog. He looks tired and dirty. He must have been caught in the tsunami. He looks very dirty.
He has a collar. He must be someone's pet. He has a silver collar. He is shaking. He seems very afraid.
Oh, there is another dog. I wonder if he is dead.
Where?
Right there. There is another dog right next to the one sitting down. He is not moving. I wonder. I wonder if he is alright.
The dog is protecting him.
Yes. He is protecting the dog. That is why he did not want us to approach them. He was trying to keep us at bay.
I can't watch this. This is a very difficult to watch.
Oh. Look. He is moving. He is alive. I am so happy to see that he is alive.
Yes! Yes! He is alive.
He looks to be weakened. We need to them to be rescued soon. We really want them rescued soon.
Oh good. He's getting up.
It is amazing how they survived the tremendous earthquake and tsunami. It's just amazing that they survived through this all.

Unbelievable Pen and Ink Art by Sagaki Keita

Japanese artist Sagaki Keita recreates famous artworks out of thousands of whimsical characters he created using his own imagination.

Looking at the creations of this talented 27-year-old artist, I can’t help but remember my childhood days when I would doodle all kinds of drawings on the back of every notebook I had. But while my drawings were just plain silly, Sagaki’s are true masterpieces. Looking at his artworks from afar, they just  seem like well executed recreations of popular paintings and sculptures, but as soon as you approach, you notice there’s something more to them. Thousands of small characters come together so perfectly to create a complex yet very detailed composition that simply blows your mind.

Sagaki Keita doesn’t reveal much about his technique on his official site, but he doesn’t really need to, his incredible works really are worth a thousand words.

http://www.odditycentral.com/category/pics (http://www.odditycentral.com/category/pics)


Quote
They might look like sharp photographs of ordinary people, but the images below are actually ballpoint pen drawings created by artist Juan Francisco Casas.

34-year-old Casas, from Spain, was originally a traditional painter,but started experimenting with the ballpoint pen as a joke, just to see if he could draw something so realistic people would think it’s a photo. It all started six years ago, when he began reproducing photos of nights out with his friends, and he liked it so much that he never gave it up. The joke eventually turned into a quest to show that “it’s not about what material you use, it’s what you do with it.”

In 2004, Juan Francisco Casas submitted one of his ballpoint pen drawings to a national art competition, in Spain. He thought the judges would probably treat it as a joke, seeing most of the entries were actual oil paintings, but he won second place, and things just starting moving from there. Now he’s a well known artist who exhibits his works in galleries around the world and sells them for thousands of euros, each.

His amazing works, measuring up to 10 feet high, take up to 14 ballpoint pens and up to two weeks to complete, but the final result is absolutely mind blowing. The only drawback of the ballpoint pen is that errors can’t easily be erased, so Juan tries to be extremely careful, especially towards the final stages of the drawing process.

World’s First Biodegradable Car: Kenneth Cobonpue’s Phoenix Roadster

Quote
So how does it work? The Phoenix’s biodegradable skin is designed to last the average length of time a person keeps a car (5 years in industrialized countries, 10-20 years elsewhere) so that the car doesn’t create unnecessary waste by lasting longer than its owner needs it. The skin can be replaced inexpensively if the owner wishes to keep their car longer, and the Phoenix’s frame can be easily customized for individual customers’ needs.

Real-Life 'Zohan' Calls San Diego Home



SAN DIEGO -- Leave it to actor/comedian Adam Sandler to come up with the most unlikely plot imaginable.

Seriously, an Israeli commando who comes to America and eventually becomes a hairstylist to the stars?

Nezi Arbib is a local hairstylist and is Sandler's real-life "Zohan."

"God bless America and San Diego at the same time," said Arbib.

Sandler and his production company approached Nezi and his brothers, also former Israeli soldiers and now hairstylists, at their salon in Los Angeles a couple of years ago.

"He wanted to learn our slang, our Israeli spoken English and funny way," said Nezi.

For two weeks, Nezi and his brothers taught Sandler how to shampoo, cut hair and entertain clients.

Sandler did take a few liberties with the character, but Nezi's clients told 10News that it's not that far off.

"He's always got a joke. He sings off-key all day long, and it just makes you feel good," one client said.

Nezi said, "I don't think anybody is going to duplicate that kind of funny character as me."

Nezi said he is OK with Sandler creating a comedy based on his life and those of his brothers. After all, Sandler does do well at the box office.

"It's cool. Adam Sandler is cool. How can we go wrong?" said Nezi.

Nezi left his salon in Los Angeles to his brothers and moved to San Diego to raise his family.

His new salon, Shampoo Too, is open in Solana Beach.

Nezi said he plans to watch "You Don't Mess With The Zohan" this week.

Linked in this week's Ars: Wierd Science (http://arstechnica.com/science/news/2011/05/weird-science-endorses-retail-therapy-but-only-with-credit-cards.ars)
Having or not having a pulse apparently isn't as good an indication of life/unlife as we thought it was:

Quote
Having a pulse? It's overrated: There are a lot of cases in which an individual has brief periods of symptoms of death before being revived. But a cardiac arrest patient recently experienced one that was decidedly not brief: 96 minutes without a pulse (http://www.mayoclinicproceedings.com/content/early/2011/04/20/mcp.2011.0229.abstract). During the hour and a half, bystanders and paramedics performed CPR and a dozen shocks with a defibrillator, all without restoring a pulse. But the responders were tracking carbon dioxide output from the lungs, which indicated that something was happening internally, so they kept going. Eventually, a heartbeat returned, and the individual has apparently made a full neurological recovery.

The 'Keyless Lifebook' designed by Laura Lahti is the ultimate virtual keyboard concept that gives the user complete control over their keyboard. By allowing ultimate customization in terms of illumination, location and ergonomics, the Keyless Lifebook is truly a unique concept that will be more comfortable than any other keyboard interface.

Oooohhh.... rminds me of Tony Stark's virtual keyboard in Iron Man.

The best balancing toy ever.

Quote
Somehow, people have found something special about him - on top of his head there he possesses the greatest balancing power that is hard to imagine. You can balance all sorts of stuff on top of his head, and he will stand untested like he's using his chakura to keep the object on top of his head balanced.

Enough of talking, let's see the power of Uchiha Sasuke ourselves! (http://quentinlau.blogspot.com/2010/09/macdonalds-sasuke-toy.html)

Two Philippine navy officers in detention for their role in a failed 2003 coup have taken a novel approach to dealing with jail: they've written a cook book.

The culinary manifesto is filled with over 100 recipes gleaned from fellow plotters, friends, family and even their prison guards during breaks in court hearings and long days in their cells.

I wish them success.

The engine in some of those Patrols probably cost more than the Murcielago. I remember reading a magazine article about Ben Sulayem and how he used an F1 engine builder to do the job on his SUVs. He even had a dedicated room just for doing the engine, complete with everything an F1 builder would be used to (engine dyno, programmable readouts, etc.)

If I ever find a digitized copy of it I'll post here, because the build is just as awesome as the end result.

Defying gravity: Tokyo photographer 'levitates'
Natsumi Hayashi makes flying look easy. But the self-portraits that seem to show the Toyko photographer levitating above the ground are actually the result of a lot of hard work. "Sometimes I need to jump more than 300 times to get the perfect shot," Hayashi told MSNBC.com. Hayashi blogs a levitating picture-of-the-day each day on her website, yowayowacamera.com. (Stephanie Pappas, LiveScience )

Even the crashes are stylish: A Bentley scrapes a Mercedes — and that was just the beginning....

(http://msnbcmedia1.msn.com/j/MSNBC/Components/Photo/_new/110728-luxury-car-crash.grid-7x2.jpg)

Quote
The wealthy French Riviera city state of Monaco was the scene of a pileup involving five luxury cars with an estimated value of more than $1.1 million.

The collision, involving a Bentley Azure (worth an estimated $400,000), a Mercedes S Class ($120,000), a Ferrari F430 ($230,000), an Aston Martin Rapide ($230,000) and a Porsche 911 ($130,000), occurred in front of Monaco's Place du Casino

Not now, but it might be feasible in the future. It's just like marbles and granites.

But in China, they are very abundant making them very cheap, in fact they even use them extensively in exterior facade.

Before, nobody thought we can pass the speed of sound, but now we do. Also, in just a very short time, computers have become more than 20x as powerful as its ancestors.

Space travel is definitely a technological challenge. I'd like to believe someday we can travel across the stars, but for now, humanity should focus on  terrestrial challenges for us to be able to actually survive to build those starships.

Quote
Yoandri Hernandez Garrido is something of a celebrity in his native Cuba for the simple fact that the man they call “Twenty-Four” was born with two extra fingers and two extra toes — all fully functional.

Garrido uses his extra digits to collect some extra cash, snapping photos with tourists and picking fruit from the tops of coconut trees.

This amazing anecdote, however, is free of charge: “One day when I was in primary school, a teacher asked me how much was five plus five,” Garrido is quoted as saying. “I was very young, kind of shy, and I didn’t say anything. She told me to count how many fingers I had, so I answered, ‘12! The teacher was a little upset, but it was the truth!”

Or you guys expect it to be achievable within our life time? It won't be.
I'm not doubting we can go there. If we can survive long enough, I believe we eventually will.

However, if we go by the Kardashev scale, as popularized by Michio Kaku we'll have to have developed to a Type-II, or possibly Type-III civilization before we can even begin to think about mining that planet. 

Long before that happens, we'll have the energy, and technology to synthesize any amount of diamond using (what would be by then) local resources. A lot of our future technology actually requires that we learn methods to play with carbon, essentially giving us the capability to easily synthesize diamond (graphene, carbon nanotubes, fullerene for hydrogen, etc). In this case, ease of synthesis will make diamond less valuable, not the existence of a diamond-sized planet. (Just as synthesis and modern manufacturing has made antibiotics, and products like oils and rubber available to all)

Of course some future googleplexillionnaire might suddenly fancy having a planet-sized diamond next to his solar system, in which case that planet becomes even more valuable.


+1 on Sephiroth's book recommendation.

Tatooine Planet Discovered (http://news.discovery.com/space/kepler-16b-exoplanet-two-stars-tatooine-110915.html)

Quote
If you could stand on the surface of Kepler-16b, you'd have two shadows. At sunset, you would see an orange star about the size of the sun and next to it a much fainter red star. As the stars slipped toward the horizon, they would change places in the sky, like partners in a square dance.

You would not need to be Luke Skywalker visiting his home planet of Tatooine in the movie "Star Wars" to watch the twin sunset. The only science fiction in this story is how to make the 200 light-year journey to Kepler-16, a binary star system jointly sharing the Saturn-sized planet, Kepler-16b.

Anil Kapoor buys TV rights of 24 (http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2011-11-09/tv/30373826_1_anil-kapoor-counter-terrorist-unit-show)

Quote
In this counter-terrorism drama, Anil will playing the iconic character of Jack Bauer, which is played by Kiefer Sutherland in the original. The show will be shot on a big canvas and will have top actors in leading roles. Anil confirms, "I am really happy that the makers of the show have put their faith in me for its Indian version. When I was shooting for it in the US, I kept wishing that I could take something like this to my Indian audience. Now that wish is close to getting fulfilled."

When quizzed about stepping into Jack Bauer's shoes, he says, "It's a huge honour, but I am anxious as Jack is an iconic character like Jack Sparrow or Batman. He is loved all over the world. It's a great responsibility for me as an entrepreneur and as actor. I will try my best and hope I can do even 50 per cent of what they have done. If I achieve a little of what Keifer has, I will be happy."

Interestingly, Jack's most repeated line on the show is 'Son of a b***h!' Wonder how Anil will translate that in Hindi!

is that gif a hint of what's in store for the bollywood 24? XD

Anyways, the magazine side is basically saying 'makeup, not photoshop'. Based on some of the stuff we've seen before (http://www.google.com.ph/search?q=makeup+before+and+after&hl=tl&client=firefox-a&hs=A0N&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&prmd=imvns&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=exgET6PkHO3XiQLprbUa&ved=0CB4QsAQ&biw=1024&bih=609), and how our two subjects looked on video I'm inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Looks fully furnished in the video, electrical blinds, furniture, beds and all.

If the same company does everything including the electrical works and the elevator (and they look to be a giant capable of doing so), then it shouldn't take too much additional time because a lot of the 'extra' stuff gets done at the same time as the main construction.

I imagine the prefab wall pieces have built-in modular connectors for power and data, and they hook up to a central hub near the main frame of the building. Likewise, as they build upwards, the lower floors are probably getting furnished at the same time.

uhhhm, i don't think so. Didn't see any beds, furniture, appliances, etc in the video. No blinds either. It's just the bare interior with exterior panels.

Being a hotel, it should have all imaginable amenities. It should have a restaurant (which needs utility connections to water, gas, and ample fire protection), phone and data connections for hotel guests, water lines (which are pressurized by pressure pumps to ensure that they reach the higher floors), boilers/heaters for the supply of hot water, conference rooms with audio and video systems, sanitary lines, among others. The laying out of the electrical lines and the inidividual megger testing of the electrical connections alone will take some time. The laying out of pressurized pipelines for the firewater (pressurized by firepumps) will also take time since these need to be pressure tested. All pipelines also need to be flushed (after layout and connection of all the 15 floors) to ensure that there are no weld slags and/or debris that can damage pumps. You cannot even start with all the safety checks and commissioning until you have completed all fifteen floors and installed them with the appropriate sprinkler and firefighting equipment. After all safety checks have been done, a municipal building surveyor would then release an occupancy permit after a THOROUGH inspection. This occupancy permit states that the building is suitable for occupation from a health and safety standpoint, and is required BEFORE people can stay in the hotel.

All i'm saying is, building a habitable hotel is much more than just erecting a 15 storey structure in 6 days. Unless commissioning and safety checks are done right, it's just a building that is not liveable and is a safety hazard. But if your idea of a typical hotel stay is living inside a bare, 20 foot shipping container, then be my guest.

Nope, didn't watch the first vid. Was more interested in the second video.

Hey, i commend them for "erecting" the hotel in 6 days. It's awesome indeed. What i'm saying is it takes more time to commission the hotel. Safety checks are also done during the commissioning stage (after erection of the building). On the job safety (while the construction is ongoing) is different as it pertains to Occupational Safety and Health.

Ok, picture this. Do you think that they will have a full-featured hotel after 6 days? At the start of the 7th day, after i check in, do you think i can:

1) Call room service and order my favorite meal and drink
2) Have them pickup my clothes for dry cleaning
3) Go down and play in the casino
4) Check out the stores in the hotel downstairs
5) Poop and make sure there's strong enough water pressure when i flush
6) Have hotwater for shower

In addition:

7) When a fire breaks out, all sprinkler systems are fine; all emergency lights are functioning
8) When there's a power outage, the genset functions accordingly.
9) Firepumps cut in and out at the right pressure
10) Fully commissioned the elevator (i mean, you can only test this once the building is already completely built)

Oh yeah, IT IS China we're talking about. :) So these may not apply.

For re-injection? Freshwater from the surrounding areas + the recycled water that was previously exhausted from the ground as steam and condensed back to liquid. Saltwater would be corrosive and expensive to transport considering most of these powerplants are in the hinterlands.

Think of a geothermal area as a hot pressure cooker with its valve still closed. When you open the valve, steam comes out, and you can use that steam for power generation, but over time the natural waters will dry up and steam pressure goes down. But since the rocks are still very hot underneath you can still get more power by pumping water into it and getting more steam.

Add this guy up to the list of AWESOME PEOPLE:
http://www.hardocp.com/news/2012/03/14/teenager_wins_intel_science_talent_search
So at 17 he's top of his class, good at sports, volunteers for museum work, and pioneers historical and cultural restoration efforts. Oh, and he also does cancer treatment research in his spare time.

Quote
Teenager Wins Intel Science Talent Search

    From medical treatments to alternative energy solutions, innovation has been top of mind in our nation's capital this week. Honoring high school seniors with exceptional promise in math and science, Intel Corporation and Society for Science & the Public (SSP) recognized (http://newsroom.intel.com/community/intel_newsroom/blog/2012/03/13/teenager-unlocks-potential-pathways-for-breast-cancer-treatments-wins-intel-science-talent-search) the winners of the nation's most elite and demanding high school research competition, the Intel Science Talent Search.

    Nithin Tumma, 17, of Fort Gratiot, Mich., won the top award of $100,000 from the Intel Foundation for his research, which could lead to more direct, targeted, effective and less toxic breast cancer treatments. He analyzed the molecular mechanisms in cancer cells and found that by inhibiting certain proteins, we may be able to slow the growth of cancer cells and decrease their malignancy. Nithin is first in his class of 332, a varsity tennis player and a volunteer for the Port Huron Museum, where he started a restoration effort for historical and cultural landmarks.

(http://static.arstechnica.net/2012/03/29/saturnengines-4f74935-intro.jpg)
Quote
Millions of people were inspired by the Apollo Program. I was five years old when I watched Apollo 11 unfold on television, and without any doubt it was a big contributor to my passions for science, engineering, and exploration. A year or so ago, I started to wonder, with the right team of undersea pros, could we find and potentially recover the F-1 engines that started mankind's mission to the moon?

I'm excited to report that, using state-of-the-art deep sea sonar, the team has found the Apollo 11 engines lying 14,000 feet below the surface, and we're making plans to attempt to raise one or more of them from the ocean floor. We don't know yet what condition these engines might be in - they hit the ocean at high velocity and have been in salt water for more than 40 years. On the other hand, they're made of tough stuff, so we'll see.

Though they've been on the ocean floor for a long time, the engines remain the property of NASA. If we are able to recover one of these F-1 engines that started mankind on its first journey to another heavenly body, I imagine that NASA would decide to make it available to the Smithsonian for all to see. If we're able to raise more than one engine, I've asked NASA if they would consider making it available to the excellent Museum of Flight here in Seattle. (For clarity, I'll point out that no public funding will be used to attempt to raise the engines, as it's being undertaken privately.)

NASA is one of the few institutions I know that can inspire five-year-olds. It sure inspired me, and with this endeavor, maybe we can inspire a few more youth to invent and explore.

We'll keep you posted.

Sincerely,

Jeff Bezos

Medical Daily: Drinking Alcohol May Significantly Enhance Problem Solving Skills (http://www.medicaldaily.com/news/20120411/9496/alcohol-solving-skills-analytical-thinking-creativity-study.htm)

Quote
Drinking alcohol may enhance a person’s problem solving skills, according to a new study.

Scientists found that men who either drank two pints of beer or two glasses of wine before solving brain teasers not only got more questions right, they also were quicker in delivering correct answers, compared to men who answered the questions sober.

I guess that study about alcohol killing off your weakest and slowest brain cells first is true! By losing the stupidest of your brain cells the mind, as a whole becomes faster and stronger!  :wacko:

I don't really know where to put this, a little bit creepy and a little bit sad, and other emotions mixed in.

Melbourne, June 7 (ANI): A two-year-old Brazilian boy, who was declared dead, sat up in his coffin and asked for water before laying back down again lifeless.

According to Website ORM, Kelvin Santos stopped breathing during treatment for pneumonia at a hospital in Belem, northern Brazil, News.com.au reported.

The boy was declared dead at 7.40pm on Friday and his body was handed over to his family in a plastic bag.

The child's devastated family took him home where grieving relatives held a wake throughout the night as the boy's body laid in an open coffin.

But just an hour before his funeral was to take place on Saturday, the boy apparently sat up in his coffin and said asked his father for water.

"Daddy, can I have some water," the child said.

"Everybody started to scream, we couldn't believe our eyes. Then we thought a miracle had taken place and our boy had come back to life," the boy's father, Antonio Santos said.

"Then Kelvin just laid back down, the way he was. We couldn't wake him. He was dead again.....

Mr Santos rushed his son back to the Aberlardo Santos hospital in Belem,where the doctors reexamined the boy and confirmed that he had no signs of life.

"They assured me that he really was dead and gave me no explanation for what we had just seen and heard," Santos said.

The boy's family decided to delay the funeral for an hour hoping that he would wake up again, but ended up burying him at 5 pm the same day in a local cemetery.

Santos, who is convinced that his son was victim of medical malpractice, has now registered a complaint with the police who have launched an investigation.

"Fifteen minutes after rushing him away for resuscitation, they came and told me he was dead and handed me his body. Perhaps they didn't examine him properly. Dead people don't just wake up and talk. I'm determined to find out the truth," Santos said. (ANI)

Disposition of Remains Report: Brasília

The laws cited are from the national law of Brazil, The Revised Administrative Code of 1984 (RAC). All costs are given in U.S. dollars, but exchange rates fluctuate frequently.

Maximum Period Before Burial

When Remains Are Embalmed: If embalmed by using formaldehyde, the body must be buried within five to six days.  If fully embalmed by the Spanish “Barnes” system or a Similar system, the time permitted for burial is indefinite.
When Remains Are Not Embalmed: In Brasilia, the city morgue has refrigeration facilities and not embalmed remains may be kept up to15 days if necessary.  Outside urban areas, refrigeration facilities may be scarce.

meron din naman pala. hindi lang siguro sa kaso nung bata

The procedure has been around for decades. Any first year chemistry student can do it in the lab. Drawback is you use up more energy and resources to break it down. I think the novelty is he was able to bring the costs down.

Olympics organisers Sunday blamed an "over-excited" cast member for gatecrashing India's athletes' march at the opening ceremony, denying she was a security risk.
The appearance of the mysterious woman, smiling and wearing a red top, next to India's flag-bearer Sushil Kumar at Friday's ceremony caused consternation among the delegation, who demanded an explanation.
Games chief Sebastian Coe said he would speak to the Indian team about the embarrassing incident, beamed live to more than one billion TV viewers worldwide.
But he said the woman, reportedly a student from Bangalore, was one of 7,500 volunteers taking part in the opening ceremony, and was unlikely to pose a risk to security.
"She was a cast member. Clearly she got slightly over-excited. We had in fairness suspected that she was probably and possibly a member of the cast," said Coe.
"She shouldn't have entered, she shouldn't have been there but she clearly started in that vein and yes, I will be speaking to the Indian delegation about it."
India's acting chef de mission Muralidharan Raja slammed the intrusion, but stopped short of calling it a security breach even though the woman was not wearing the customary identification badge.
"She had no business being there. It was a clear case of intrusion," Raja was quoted as saying by the Times of India.
"I can't say that (if it was a security breach) as she was in a sanitised zone, but this was bizarre. We will ask for an apology," he added.
"She embarrassed us in front of the world. The Indian contingent was shown (on television) for just 10 seconds, and to think this lady hogged all the limelight."
India has fielded its largest Olympic contingent of 81 athletes with hopes of bettering its Beijing Games tally of one gold and two bronze medals.
"She couldn't have got in to the opening ceremony without having gone through all our security protocols," said Coe.
"She shouldn't have been in the opening ceremony but don't run away with the idea that she sort of walked in off the street."
India's flagbearer Sushil Kumar leads his country's delegation during the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games on July 27. To the left of him, in red, is a gatecrasher who has sparked an uproar from India, who claimed the unidentified woman "embarrassed us in front of the world". Olympics organisers Sunday labelled her an "over-excited" cast member and said she was no security risk.

http://www.newsy.com/videos/do-pistorius-s-prosthetic-legs-give-him-unfair-advantage/

His run actually re-opens a debate on whether or not those kinds of prosthetics give athletes an unfair advantage. His legs are lighter, have more bounce, and do not fatigue (rather important in longer races, like the 400M). On the other hand, he has no ankles and thus has less control over his stance.

Who says the T-rex wont run out of steam first? Cold blooded animals have no way of expelling heat so they are far more likely to fail at long distance.

There's actually a documentary (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00z6zc7) on how our survival as a species can be attributed to the fact that our bodies are designed for endurance running. Exposed skin means we can expel heat, tendons from our head to our back keeps our skulls from bobbing about when running, and gluteus max enables running, as opposed to merely walking.

I walked into a wendy's inside a mall when a fellow approached me and said, excuse me, you dropped this 100 peso bill while you took out your wallet. I probably dropped that in the escalator while i fished out crumpled bills in my back pocket.

Uruguayan President José Mujica, has earned the nickname of the “poorest,” or the “most generous,” president in the world
By LARA FERNANDEZ (https://twitter.com/#%21/larafernandezm)

Usually presidents are not associated with poverty. Some, like Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, are even linked to big spending and generous welfare programs.

But the President of Uruguay, José Mujica, has earned the nickname of the “poorest,” or the “most generous,” president in the world — depending on how you see things— after revealing that he donates 90 percent of his earnings, to charitable causes.

In a recent interview, Mujica told Spain’s El Mundo (http://www.elmundo.es/america/2012/05/25/noticias/1337961914.html) that he earns a salary of $12,500 a month, but only keeps $1,250 for himself, donating the rest to charity.

The president said that the only big item he owns is his VW (http://univisionnews.tumblr.com/post/24476493169/volkswagen-is-capitalizing-on-latin-americas-demand-for) car, valued at $1,945 dollars. The farmhouse in which he lives in Montevideo is under his wife’s name, Lucía Topolansky, a Senator, who also donates part of her salary.
“I do fine with that amount; I have to do fine because there are many Uruguayans who live with much less,” the president told  El Mundo (http://www.elmundo.es/america/2012/05/25/noticias/1337961914.html).

The 77-year-old Mujica is a former guerilla leader, who fought against Uruguay’s military regimes in the 1970s. He was also Minister of Livestock, Agriculture and Fisheries from 2005 to 2008 and afterwards, served as a senator.
Later on, as presidential candidate for the Broad Front, the left-wing coalition, Mujica won the 2009 election becoming Uruguay’s president on March 1, 2010.

Uruguay is the second smallest nation in South America by area, after Suriname. However it is one of the most developed countries on the continent, with a GDP per capita of $15,656. That’s less than half of United States’ GDP per capita, but it triples earnings in Honduras which has a GDP per capita of just $4,345.

Under Mujica’s stewardship, Uruguay has become known for low levels of corruption. The South American country ranks as the second least corrupt country in Latin America in Transparency International’s global corruption index.
Uruguay also made it to the world cup 2010 semi-finals while Mujica was in office, and the country won the South American Soccer championships in 2011, stunning tournament hosts Argentina, in a memorable performance by striker Diego Forlan.

It seems therefore, that it’s a good time to be Jose Mujica.

Without bank accounts, and with few debts, Mujica told El Mundo that he sleeps peacefully. When his term is over, the President hopes to rest even more peacefully in his farmhouse, along with his wife and his inseparable dog, Manuela.

Sting forces venue switch in Philippines tree row


Quote

MANILA, Philippines—Rock superstar Sting has forced organisers to move his planned one-night show in the Philippines to another Manila venue amid a spat over pine trees involving the original hosts, it was announced Friday.
The Manila leg of his “Back to Bass Tour” on December 9 will now be hosted by Araneta Coliseum, instead of Mall of Asia Arena as originally announced, said his official website www.sting.com (http://www.sting.com).
Earlier in the day, the local concert promoters informed the Arena that Sting had called off his show (http://entertainment.inquirer.net/63728/sting-calls-off-philippine-gig-in-pine-tree-row) there, Arena general manager Arnel Gonzales said.
Sting announced his decision after learning that pine trees growing outside a provincial shopping mall owned by the same holding company that owns Arena were being removed for an expansion programme, Gonzales added.
“Somebody misled the Englishman In New York over the venue,” Gonzales told AFP, referring to one of the British-born star’s hit songs.
Gonzales said that while Arena and SM Baguio are sister companies, the concert venue had nothing to do with the trees’ transfer.
Environmentalists had sued the SM Baguio shopping mall in the northern mountain resort of Baguio earlier this year to stop the uprooting and relocation of 182 old trees, mostly pines, growing at its property.
The case sparked calls for a boycott of the SM chain, controlled by the family of the country’s richest man, billionaire developer Henry Sy.
The mall chain said it had secured permits to remove the trees, but the transfer of all 182 trees to a government lot had not been completed due to the civil suit, which remains on trial.
“It’s something that we did not expect,” Gonzales said of the cancellation of the Arena concert.
Sting, former frontman of “The Police”, is known for his activism on a number of social and political causes and is closely associated with the human rights monitor Amnesty International.

This is greenwashing really and an incredible imposition on his promoters.  Hippies are the worst people to deal with pragmatic policies between progress and the environment.

Filipino bags Danish optics prize

Peter John Rodrigo, a researcher of the Optical Sensor Technology group of the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) Fotonik, is the recipient of the 2012 Danish Optical Society (DOPS) Prize. The recognition, according the DOPS website, is given “to young researchers, development engineer or other person who has made an extraordinary effort in the optical field.”

Peter was chosen based on his work on wind lidar and his previous research in optical trapping. His different papers on optical trapping have been featured in Optical Society of America’s Optics and Photonics News as one of the most exciting optics research for 2003, 2004, and 2005.

Fact and fiction blur as Captain Kirk tweets astronaut

http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/shortsharpscience/2013/01/iss-shatner-twitter.html (http://www.newscientist.com/blogs/shortsharpscience/2013/01/iss-shatner-twitter.html)

The catalyst was the arrival of Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield at the ISS (via a Soyuz space taxi) on 22 December. A major-league online social networker, he has been tweeting some stunning images of the Earth and the atmosphere in between his shifts as the station's flight engineer.

His orbital imagery prompted William Shatner - Captain James T. Kirk of the Enterprise in the original Star Trek TV series - to tweet: "Are you tweeting from space?" to Hadfield.

The astronaut crafted his reply in true Trek tradition: "Yes, Standard Orbit, Captain. And we're detecting signs of life on the surface." Such were the words often uttered on the show when the Enterprise pulled up above a strange, new world.

$163k/year sounds awesome to me.

parang mababa yung mga nakasulat na salary ah.  anong klaseng trabaho ba ang dapat nasa listahan?  yung mga managers/supervisors of corporations ba hindi kasama?  kasi nabasa ko not entry level jobs. 

and also, bakit nasa awesome thread ito?  lolz!  i didnt feel the awesome in that...  hehehe

edit: nung nag quote ako wala pa yan australia na post.  wtf?!  hahaha!  yung australia is awesome pero yung PH salaries parang sobrang baba para sakin...  i would have thought it was at least 100k/month for the top1 in the list.

Microsoft supposedly has a new do-everything one that's designed for collaboration. Put your phone on it and it will charge, you can look at pictures, flick one over to a friend on the other side of the table, play games (looks like it will be a hit with board games) and other stuff.

Heard about it in one of the Anandtech or Techreport podcasts, not exactly sure which one.

Peso-Foreign currency exchange rate...
Title: Re: The Awesome Thread
Post by: lahar on April 01, 2013, 04:45:04 PM
^AFAIK a higher credit rating means foreign investors will be more willing to come in, w/c means more jobs locally, w/c means less Pinoys going abroad as OFWs. If it means a better peso exchange rate, well sorry, but if it were the other way around does it mean OFWs are happy when the Pinoys at home find their peso buys less?
Title: Re: The Awesome Thread
Post by: ^_^japol on April 01, 2013, 05:15:45 PM
As a previous OFW years ago , I suspect its the exchange rate. (well duh?)

Still, Di naman ata tama na dahil OFW eh, dahil sa upgraded credit rating eh magiging negative dahil lang sa exchange rate? I dont know if its the  new policies or lack thereof etc,  but lets face it credit ratings is all about money / investments etc.

Because of the higher credit rating, businesses like in BPO, tourism and foreign investors are far more confident than ever before.

Even for a small business owner like me , I'm really quite happy about this. For me and the other business people I know, Yes we do feel the difference. Mostly because the international community / foreign business owners are taking notice and are making investments inside the country. Hell, even for a educated - struggling employee would be at the very least happy with this good news. Sometimes your piece of the cake doesn't taste as good as the rest.

 I just hope it continues for the next 10 years or longer, so my kid have far better options.

O baka isip talangka na naman?
Title: Re: The Awesome Thread
Post by: i2mp on April 01, 2013, 05:23:27 PM
I can't believe some OFW's are this selfish. Even if the exchange rate becomes $1=Php100 doesn't mean your hard earned dollars could buy more if you remit it to the Philippines and exchange it to Peso. Mag-a-adjust din ang presyo ng bilihin.

Pinoy nga naman, kung bumagsak ang ekonomiya... reklamo. Bumuti ang ekonomiya... reklamo pa rin.

Its not about price reductions, but its about more people having money (from the jobs generated) to actually pay for these goods.

Wouldn't it be better if Pinoys don't have to leave for jobs in countries that don't let you use Skype or Facebook?

Ramdam ko last year yung slight price reduction..... I bought my Palit GTX 680 Jetstream at just 23k the same day it just hit the shelves. Prior to that, all top end cards were priced at 30-35k when released locally. So, somehow I can say that the consumer still benefit from the stronger economy. But let's face it, locally produced goods won't be affected by it, unless they contain imported materials.

India is the worst country for you to compare the Philippines to. In terms of GDP alone India's economy is 8x larger than the Philippines. This gives them more latitude to smooth out currency exchange volatility.

Yup sana nga dyan nalang magtrabaho sa pinas, di man kasing laki ng kinikita sa abroad kasama naman ang pamilya palagi.

Thou i cant blame Kenn for thinking that way, every cents counts. When i starts working abroad nasa 51-52petot=1usd.
kung may salary ka na $1000 before = 51,000 pesos.. ngayun $1000 = 40,000 pesos nalang..
sa salary na $2000 before 100,000 pesos + sya, ngayun 80,000 pesos nalang.. imagine 20,000 pesos per month ang nawala.
malaki din ang impact sa mga OFW lalo na para sa pamilya nila sa pinas na sana mas may naiipon..

in general maganda for the whole country and economy, pero hindi lang siguro sa lahat ng mamamayan, dipende
nalang siguro kung paano nararamdaman ng individual yung sinasabing strong economy.

well, makikita mo sa stock market ang effect nung news na yan.  nung nag announce yung rating upgrade natin biglang nag spike up ang psei.  lahat ng stock prices nag increase ng malaki.

from what i see, parang kay gloria pa nagumpisa ang pag ganda ng economy natin.  it just happened na maraming galit sa kanya. 

ang bumababa na presyo ata yung mga imported goods.  kaya kung mahilig ka bumili ng mga imported sobrang ramdam mo talaga yung reduction.  its also possible na ayaw magbaba ng presyo yung mga local goods kasi dagdag kita nalang nila yun.  lalo na pag lahat naman sila hindi nag adjust ng presyo.  medyo matagal na din naman naglalaro sa 40php ang exchange rate natin eh.  kawawa nga siguro ang mga ofw in terms of exchange rate.  kaya lang, yun kasi talaga ang plano ng gobyerno.  maging mas attractive yung pag trabaho sa pinas kesa sa ibang bansa. ang gusto din nila mangyari ay bumalik dito sa pinas ang mga ofw para magtrabaho

I think its opposite actually. I've met Pinoy and Pinay dance choreographers who tear off their hair at East Asian dancers because they can't do freestyle, everything needs to be by the numbers, no creativity whatsoever. Make them dance by themselves and you will see how stilted they are. Any "synchronization" we see were most likely conjured up first by Pinoys and Pinays.

Video production and dance choreography... when they need to be synchronized, they really are... execution is perfect...
while the videos done locally all seem to be done by amateurs... the dance steps are great but the execution isn't.

I think its opposite actually. I've met Pinoy and Pinay dance choreographers who tear off their hair at East Asian dancers because they can't do freestyle, everything needs to be by the numbers, no creativity whatsoever. Make them dance by themselves and you will see how stilted they are. Any "synchronization" we see were most likely conjured up first by Pinoys and Pinays.

I'm not saying they're good in freestyle - in fact, I do agree that most of them don't have any creative talent at all. What I'm pointing at is that when the choreography requires synchronization, they execute it so badly - i.e. one has an extra hand gesture, the ones at the rear dance with no enthusiasm while the ones up front are snappy or one of the frontliners is exuding with so much energy - making him/her standout from the group.

Ang theory ko diyan eh baka dahil sa focal length ng lenses na gamit ng tv studio camera. Usually kasi wide-angle lens ang karaniwang gamit para kuha ang scene kahit masikip ang studio. Sa photography hindi recommended ang wide-angle sa portraiture dahil nga nagmumukhang mataba ang subject.

Charles Ramsey is the man who reportedly helped rescue three Cleveland women who had been missing for a decade, but now that his interview about the encounter has hit the web, it’s safe to say that he is about to become a viral superstar.

Charles describes how he found Amanda Berry – one of the missing women – and his animated facial expressions and one liners are the kind that beg for an auto-tuned remix.

Japan lifts visa requirement for ASEAN countries

http://www.worldbulletin.net/?aType=haber&ArticleID=111902 (http://www.worldbulletin.net/?aType=haber&ArticleID=111902)

According to Foreign Ministry’s pronouncement, visa exemption will be effective for Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Viet Nam after July, 1. Ministry underlined the decision is adopted to celebrate “40th Year of ASEAN-Japan Friendship and Cooperation.” Visa exemption is valid for short time visit no longer than 15 days. Japan cautioned those travelers who want to stay longer must still need a visa.

-------------------

Ooops correction:

"The Government of Japan has decided to begin issuance from July 1, of multiple entry visas for short-term stay to nationals of the Republic of the Philippines (ordinary passport holders) who reside in their home country," the Japan Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said in a news release Tuesday, June 25.

Japan has yet to release details on how to apply for the multiple entry visas, but the MOFA release said applicants will have to meet "certain conditions.

^ might want read up on her project (or at least watch the video) before you bash.

Her device isn't the charger, but the "battery" itself. It's a supercapacitor that stores the same amount of energy as a battery, and being a capacitor it will actually last something like 10x more cycles than a normal battery.

The only immediate drawback I see here is the possibility of a fast discharge. Devices using this will have to have some sort of short circuit protection, otherwise a smartphone using it might as well be smartgrenade.

^looks stealthy

speaking of stealth, I've always wondered if they ever designed ships, or aircraft which are the opposite of stealthy, like maybe a small boat with an incredibly large radar cross section that makes it look like a huge battle ship or aircraft carrier, would make for good decoy tactics.
Title: Re: The Awesome Thread
Post by: splerdu on July 26, 2013, 02:51:29 AM
^ 1950s pa lang meron na. Look for the ADM-20 Quail decoy. It's basically a small cruise missile that mimics the B52 bomber's radar signature. A B52 will typically carry several Quails, and when fired makes it very hard for an enemy to determine which way the actual bomber went.

(http://i.imgur.com/CPXkxWA.jpg)

Basically if you have a strange, wacky idea you can bet that either the Americans or the Soviets probably already tried it, or at least thought of it during the cold war days. They had nuclear powered aircraft, nuclear artillery, even a nuclear backpack. Now that would make the ultimate sapper (or suicide bomber).

They even had those "sleds" like in Gundam, except these were used to launch fighters vertically (VTOL aircraft weren't very fast back then).

^ Straight out of star trek! That's the exact same way they explained warp drive wasn't it? Basically folding space around the vehicle so it "moves forward", even it's actually standing still. Takes care of FTL, also takes care of having to brake when the journey is done.

Still, if this stuff doesn't work and we do have to rely on more conventional means (like nuclear pulse propulsion) to get around, I imagine the gentlemanly space explorer would go with a solar sail.

am not familiar with star trek (am more of a star gate SG1 fan) but yes, warp drives are supposed to compress the space in front then expand it behind. it seems to break the rule that nothing can travel faster than light by warping space itself but still staying stationary.


my bet is on anti-matter engine if warp drives aren't feasible.  :lol:

SR-71 stitched shots from the Pima Air And Space Museum

Figured I would share. I have a couple of ultralarge stitched pictures of the SR-71 at my local air and space museum just sitting on my Dropbox now Flickr, account. The pictures are huge, and while not my finest work, I have to imagine that there are a few SR-71 fans here. I use Hugin (https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&ved=0CDAQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fhugin.sourceforge.net%2F&ei=JFABUtD5J4TtigKJu4DYDw&usg=AFQjCNHu63cvIP_n93LCLVyHLN2EyC_7bg&sig2=zhFoJdZgTb8StN1zY3a34g&bvm=bv.50310824,d.cGE) to stitch my photos for those times when my wide angle lens just isn't wide enough.

^ May have been awesome till the Voodoo2 days, but come Voodoo3 3Dfx was outdated, and their designers were arrogant. Nvidia, ATI and Matrox were already pushing superior image quality with large textures and 32bit color, and 3Dfx basically had the gall to tell consumers that we were basically "seeing it wrong," and that their dithered 16-bit was still better.

They say on their Voodoo2 laurels, and eventually it came to a point where Nvidia and Matrox were offering Voodoo2 SLI level performance with their single-chip solutions, the TNT2 and the G400.

When Voodoo3 came out, it addressed the performance deficit, but image quality-wise it was still 16-bit, 256x256 textures. Pathetic compared to G400 and TNT2 Ultra's 32-bit, 2048x2048.

They then alienated their previous board partners when they decided to do their manufacturing in-house (after acquiring STB).

Proof that even an awesome company can be brought down by string of failures. (Hopefully AMD doesn't go the same way, because they are certainly on their string of fail now).

Nope. It was also a speed drifting contest between their two drivers, Federico Sceriffo from Italy and James Tang from Hong Kong. Sceriffo won, with a top speed of 170 KPH and a score of 96.5/100.

Also, if you look at the Tsukuba and World Time Attack videos, almost every single record holder (on DOT-rated road-legal semi slick tires) set their respective times on Advan rubber.

Here's the current Tsukuba record run, set by privateer Under Suzuki on Advan A050s:
(The record was previously held by the HKS CT230R Evo, on Advan A048s.)

Couldn't find any photos, but PAF F-8s have been known to intercept Soviet Bears (not really bombers but long range maritime surveillance planes). Here's a story though of a pair of F-5s intercepting and escorting a Bear.

(https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/378084_10150455026737318_1093400164_n.jpg)

STORY OF A PAF VETERAN: PAF's FAMOUS COLD WAR INTERCEPT...Sometime in the late 1970s... A PAF F-5A element led by then LT JAMES DIMAL (PAF Direct Commissioned Officer Class 1974) the element lead and his wingman LT CHRISTE DATU (PMA Class of 1973) intercepted a Soviet Tupolev Tu-95 "Bear" Long Range Reconnaisance Bomber violating Philippine Airspace... the F-5As were vectored to the Bear and soon it was being escorted in the direction out of RP territory... later two US Air Force F-4 Phantoms arrived at the scene and the Filipino flight was instructed by American Radar Controllers to turn over the escort duty to the F-4s... LT DIMAL gave a negative reply and so the American Phantoms followed behind the Bear/F-5As until the Filipinos finally left the Bear as their tanks were now low on fuel... Immediately the USAF F-4s took over and escorted the Russian bomber further out of the country... Both PAF officers would later serve and lead various important units within the PAF/AFP, later they both became Generals and are now retired...

Bai Fangli


Quote
The last instalment of Unsung Heroes series is one hero provided financial help to poor students. But this is no millionaire -- he made a living by pedalling a pedicab. Bai Fangli donated a total of 350,000 yuan to help more than 300 poor students continue with their studies. In 2005, he passed away at the age of 93.

(http://images.china.cn/attachement/jpg/site1007/20120215/001ec94a1ee410a569632d.jpg)
 
 For almost twenty years, to save up for his donations, Bai Fangli peddled his pedicab everyday.
His devotion started in 1987 when he was 74 years old. Bai had prepared to retire and say goodbye to his job.
But after coming back to his hometown, a group of children working in the field aroused his attention.
Bai's daughter, Bai Jinfeng said:" He asked why the children didn't go to school. And our relatives told him that it was because they were too poor to afford tuition. My father was worried so he decided to donate 5,000 yuan to the schools in our hometown. But for him, it was all he owned."
As soon as he returned to Tianjin, Bai went back to work. All of his earnings went to support the needy students.
His sons and daughters tried to persuade him to change his mind, as they wanted him to enjoy a relaxing life. But the father turned a deaf ear to them.
Bai Jinfeng also said:" At that time, he went out at dawn and wouldn't return until darkness fell. He earned 20 to 30 yuan each day. After returning home, he put his earnings in a place carefully."
Bai had always felt regretful that he was illiterate. So he hoped the next generation could change their destiny with education.

(http://images.china.cn/attachement/jpg/site1007/20120215/001ec94a1ee410a5699d2f.jpg)
 
 Later on, to increase his effort to assist students in need, Bai moved to a simple room near the Tianjin Railway Station. He waited for clients 24 hours a day, ate simple food and wore discarded second-hand clothes he found.
At the age of 82 years old, to his children's surprise, Bai made another decision.
He founded an education support fund with the help of loans.
But his life driving a pedicab continued.
Xu Xiuxiang, one of the workers of Education Support Fund, said:" He never forgot when to give money to the schools and often urged us to give his earnings to the school. Each time he gave the money he felt very happy and said he had completed his mission again."
In 2001, he drove his pedicab to Tianjin YaoHua Middle School, to delivering his last installment of money. Nearly 90 years old, he told the students that he couldn't work any more. All of the students and teachers were moved to tears.
Bai Fangli said:" I hope the students could study hard and get a good job, and then make contributions to our country."
A long journey of supporting and aiding students lasted two decades.
In 2005, he was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.
Although he had kept none of his earnings for himself, he was left with his selfless spirit and love.

If you're planning on stealing anything from the London Borough of Brent, you might want to think twice—or at least hope you look good in green. The Brent Police Department has a crazy new secret weapon that covers crooks head to toe in a semipermanent emerald, ultraviolet glow. And they have no idea until it's too late.

Currently being tested by the Brent Police throughout the area, an odorless, invisible, and damn-near unwashable chemical called SmartWater has already managed to catch at least one car thief. The unlucky burglar, Yafet Askale, fell for the police department's booby-trapped car, which sprayed Askale with a fine mist of the stuff as soon as it detected an intrusion.

RPG water bottle launcher

Have you ever wanted to have your very own rocket launcher? Well here is your chance to shoot rockets at stuff without having to join the army. Japanese manufacturer Marudai has developed an extremely fun looking toy, the RPG-7 water bottle launcher. The RPG-7 is armed by pumping air into the chamber with a bicycle style pump, once armed you can shoot off a water bottle missile like a champ.

Mike Tyson: My Life as a Young Thug
Quote

    We were beefing with these guys called the Puma Boys. It was 1976, and I lived in Brownsville, Brooklyn, and these guys were from my neighborhood. At that time I was running with a Rutland Road crew called the Cats, a bunch of Caribbean guys from nearby Crown Heights. We were a burglary team, and some of our gangster friends had an altercation with the Puma Boys, so we were going to the park to back them up. We normally didn’t deal with guns, but these were our friends, so we stole a bunch of shit: some pistols, a .357 Magnum, and a long M1 rifle with a bayonet attached from World War II. You never knew what you’d find when you broke into people’s houses.

    So we’re walking through the streets holding our guns, and nobody runs up on us, no cops are around to stop us. We didn’t even have a bag to put the big rifle in, so we just took turns carrying it every few blocks.

    “Yo, there he goes!” my friend Haitian Ron said. “The guy with the red Pumas and the red mock neck.”

    When we started running, the huge crowd in the park opened up like Moses parting the Red Sea. It was a good thing they did, because, boom, one of my friends opened fire. Everybody scrambled when they heard the gun.

    I realized that some of the Puma Boys had taken cover between the parked cars in the street. I had the M1 rifle, and I turned around quickly to see this big guy with his pistol pointed toward me.

    “What the fuck are you doing here?” he said to me. It was my older brother, Rodney. “Get the fuck out of here.”

    I just kept walking and left the park and went home. I was 10 years old.

How One Man Earned 4 Million Airline Miles by Buying Dollar Coins
Quote
Rewards cards (http://www.dailyfinance.com/tag/rewards+cards/) are a great way to earn free cash and travel, provided you don't carry a balance or pay a big annual fee. But it can take a while to see a significant return: If your card earns a standard 1 percent cash back, spending $10,000 on the card gets you just $100. And the last thing you want to do is spend more money than you normally would just to get points.
 
 So Brad Wilson, founder of deal site BradsDeals (http://www.bradsdeals.com/), hit on a solution: Why not just use his rewards cards to buy money?
 
 As he explains in his book "Do More, Spend Less (http://www.amazon.com/Do-More-Spend-Less-Secrets/dp/1118518551)," the scheme was made possible by the U.S. government. The Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 sought to put dollar coins into circulation by allowing citizens to buy the coins directly from the Mint's website at face value. Shipping was free, and the website accepted credit cards.
 
 So Wilson pulled out his rewards card and bought nearly $3 million in coins.
 
 Not all at once, of course. But over the course of eight months, he would have thousands of dollars in coins delivered at a time, then walk them into the bank and deposit them into his account. Then he would use the money to pay off his credit card bill in full. He was essentially moving money in a circle: putting thousands of dollars in charges at a time on his card, then using the cash he "bought" to pay the bill.
 
 The card he used was the American Express Starwood card (http://www.dailyfinance.com/2012/06/18/planes-trains-or-automobiles-which-credit-cards-are-best-for-e/), which offers 1 point for every dollar spent. He could then transfer them into an airline's frequent flyer program at a ratio of 1.25 miles per point. That meant for every 800,000 points he put into his American Airlines AAdvantage account he scored 1 million miles, good for 40 domestic round-trip flights. Combined with the miles he'd already earned, he wound up with more than 4 million miles, earning lifetime Platinum status for him and his wife.
 
 The good times couldn't last forever, though: The Mint has since discontinued the dollar coin buying program.

Scientists from the University of Lyon have discovered a new way to split hydrogen gas from water, using rocks.

The method promises a new green energy source, providing copious hydrogen from a simple mixture of rock and water.

It speeds up a chemical reaction that takes geological timescales in nature.

Australian and US scientists reverse ageing in mice, humans could be next

Quote
Reuters

Australian and US researchers have developed a compound which reverses muscle ageing in mice, saying it could be one of the keys to reversing ageing in humans.

When used in trials, the compound gave mice more energy, toned their muscles, reduced inflammation, and led to big improvements in insulin resistance.

Scientists say it actually reversed the ageing process, not just slowing it down, and say that for humans the effect would be similar to a 60-year-old feeling like a 20-year-old.

And they say human trials could start within the year.

The study has been published this morning in the research journal Cell (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0092867413015213).

^ More details on that anti-aging stuff from sciencedaily (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/12/131219130738.htm):

DT (http://www.dailytech.com/Signs+of+Aging+Could+be+Warded+Off+with+New+Compound/article33990.htm) has a nice summary:
Quote
A new study shows that communication between a cell's nucleus and mitochondria is essential in warding off the negatives that come with aging, such as disease.
 
According to Science Daily, helping to rebuild the broken communication between the nucleus and mitochondria has proven to reverse signs of aging in mammals (more specifically, mice). The study was led by Harvard Medical School Professor of Genetics David Sinclair and Ana Gomes, a postdoctoral scientist in the Sinclair lab.
 
The initial problem is that mitochondria (a cell's powerhouse that creates chemical energy) become increasingly dysfunctional over time leading to diseases like diabetes. The self-contained mitochondria, which have their own small genomes, have been linked to aging before.
 
Up until now, it was believed that aging can't be reversed because mutations in mitochondrial DNA cause age-related illnesses like Alzheimer's disease, and mutations can't be undone.
 
But the latest study focused on an important group of genes genes called sirtuins, and one of these genes -- SIRT1 -- is activated by a compound called resveratrol. When SIRT1 was removed, the mice certainly showed signs of aging, but the team was surprised to find that most mitochondrial proteins coming from the cell's nucleus remained at normal levels. Only those from the mitochondrial genome had decreased.
 
They saw that communication between the two was broken and accelerating age-related illnesses as a result. To correct it, they focused on a chemical called NAD, which keeps SIRT1 in check. SIRT1s job is to keep a molecule called HIF-1 away, which messes with communication between the nucleus and mitochondria. So if SIRT1 doesn't have enough NAD, it loses its ability to keep HIF-1 away and it destroys communication.
 
Without this communication, cell is unable to create energy and signs of aging occur.
 
The research team then used an endogenous compound that cells transform into NAD on two-year-old mice. After just one week, their tissue looked like that of six-month-old mice.
 
This repaired the broken communication and restored communication and mitochondrial function. The study states that giving this compound early enough (before excessive mutation accumulation) some aging could be reversed. It could also open up some doors and answer questions as to why cancer risk increases with age.
 
This isn't the first time Harvard researchers have worked on age reversal techniques. In 2010, Ronald DePinho, leader of the study and a scientist at Harvard Medical School, along with a group of Harvard researchers, discovered that an anti-aging therapy called telomere shortening has the potential to eliminate age-related issues like dementia and heart disease by rejuvenating old, worn out organs.

Very interesting that the process they developed is aimed at enabling the body to fix itself, rather than doing something to forcibly and/or artificially fix it.

Aviation nowadays is much less satisfying- hours are long, end of career is just an annual medical or recurrent training away.  (Am rather sourgraping am I? Indeed I did not even get the chance to fly due to a failed medical.) There is turmoil in that profession(had dinner with a retired pilot who has genuine concern over people wanting to go into it, his son however is now one.) 

But nevertheless these birds -especially the dinosaurs- are still fascinating for me.

"M65 Recoiless Nuclear Rifle. Also referred to as the M28, M29, or ”Davy Crockett,” the weapon was either hand carried or mounted on a jeep. The M65 was tested once in 1962 but suffered from a fatal flaw. Despite utilizing among the smallest nuclear warheads ever built (as low as 10 tons and as high as 1 kilotons), the effective range of 3 miles was within the fallout radius of the payload, meaning that unless the wind was at their backs, the crew of the weapon would be exposing themselves to nuclear fallout.

 NATO commanders objected to issuing the weapon to soldiers in Europe on the grounds that doing so would restrict their ability to defend themselves without resorting to nuclear weapons. Some members of the West German administration, however, were serious proponents of the weapon’s deployment in defending Germany."

The solar farm, the largest to be put up in the country to date, is located in the San Carlos economic zone. The facility is expected to help improve the Visayas grid's power supply especially amid projections of a possible prolonged dry spell in the coming weeks.

The SaCaSol consortium invested P1.9 billion to develop the solar plant.

Michael Sieg, ThomasLloyd chairman, said SaCaSol will initially generate 13 MW of power within the week and another nine MW in the following week.

93-year-old vet just recreated his D-Day parachute jump over Normandy

During World War II, Martin was a private first class with the elite 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division. He wanted to make the jump again—for the 70th anniversary of D-Day—because he said there's no other 93-year-old guy in the unit who could do it. He'd do it for those we can't.

Did they ever release an AGP version of the Voodoo2? AFAIK they were PCI because you had to have a 2D card to send teh passthrough cable to.

Voodoo2 was a purely 3D card so they were all PCI.

Tesla gives up all their patents

Quote
“When I started out with my first company, Zip2, I thought patents were a good thing and worked hard to obtain them,” Musk wrote. “And maybe they were good long ago, but too often these days they serve merely to stifle progress, entrench the positions of giant corporations and enrich those in the legal profession, rather than the actual inventors.”

though I don't think it's breaking the laws of conservation of momentum because there is still input in the form of electricity (it's just hard to explain the conversion even NASA doesn't try), this is awesome.

EDIT
upon further reading, turns out the principle behind it is that it bounces microwaves inside a sealed container and that somehow produces thrust. holy balls, that's the same as saying you can move a car forward by pushing it from the inside, this is seriously breaking the laws of conservation of momentum!

Sarwer:  I didn't know him that well, but I always thought he was a nice kid. We played a couple of tournament games and I always felt sorry for him because it seemed like his dad put a lot of pressure on him. I remember feeling like he maybe didn't love the game much at all and if that read was correct, then he did extraordinarily well for someone in his position! I am happy that he has found a lot of satisfaction with the martial arts, that most likely makes him a very balanced trustworthy person.

...so considering his circumstances am glad that Jeff Sarwer seemed to have grown up rather well- which is an awewome achievement in itself and not the chess.

The jump was made by Alan Eustace, 57, a senior vice president of Google. At dawn he was lifted from an abandoned runway at the airport here by a balloon filled with 35,000 cubic feet of helium.
For a little over two hours, the balloon ascended at speeds up to 1,600 feet per minute to an altitude of more than 25 miles. Mr. Eustace dangled underneath in a specially designed spacesuit with an elaborate life-support system. He returned to earth just 15 minutes after starting his fall.
“It was amazing,” he said. “It was beautiful. You could see the darkness of space and you could see the layers of atmosphere, which I had never seen before.”
Mr. Eustace cut himself loose from the balloon with the aid of a small explosive device and plummeted toward the earth at speeds that peaked at 822 miles per hour, setting off a small sonic boom heard by people on the ground.
Eat your heart out, Red Bull. Video in the full report below:

Wanderers - a short film by Erik Wernquist [Vimeo] (http://vimeo.com/108650530)

(http://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--VjUM8rlC--/l9kertm6n5dqpozo3ueu.gif)

Quote
Wanderers is a vision of humanity's expansion into the Solar System, based on scientific ideas and concepts of what our future in space might look like, if it ever happens. The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.
Without any apparent story, other than what you may fill in by yourself, the idea with the film is primarily to show a glimpse of the fantastic and beautiful nature that surrounds us on our neighboring worlds - and above all, how it might appear to us if we were there.

IMO it's really no different than coming up with his own curriculum in education, except the topic this time is video games. His son is a more rounded and balanced gamer for it, appreciative of old-style graphics, capable to getting to the gameplay underneath, and not afraid of Nintendo-hard level design.

Shinano... I remember reading about it in Reader's Digest. Got stalked and torpedo-ed helplessly by a small-fry american submarine. The way i remember it was that it was too majestic to be risked so it was perenially docked. It was a garage queen, so to speak. It was a battleship (i.e cannon warfare) in a time of aircraft carriers.

The small port in Cabugao, Ilocos Sur still has the remnants of a WWII japanese ship on the side btw. Kids would jump off the pier and swim around it. Wherever there's an old port in our country, there must be a couple of vintage shipwrecks nearby, of varying importance of course.

I was a huge fan of the Robotech series back in the 90's. I learned years later that Harmony Gold and Carl Macek (R.I.P) really just stitched together the 3 shows mentioned in the above post by changing a lot of the key plot elements that's why I was so confused with the story when I watched Macross Plus and Macross 7. I finally got that Robotech had nothing to do with the Macross canon by the time I watched Macross Zero.

Robotech: Protoculture = Energy Source
Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Protoculture = ancient civilization that created the Zentraedi

’ve seen a lot of military recruitment and promotional videos, and most of the time they just seem like either over-produced Michael Bay wanna-be junk or slogan rich diatribes that try to pull on a few viewers heart strings. The Philippines Special Forces took another, more straight forward route that really gives a clear picture of what they do and how they do it.

Quote
He's the fastest dude in the valley today, and he just wants everyone to know how much fun he is having in his new Hornet. And the reply, always with that same, calm, voice, with more distinct alliteration than emotion: "Dusty 52, Center, we have you at 620 on the ground."....

...Then, I heard it. The click of the mic button from the back seat. That was the very moment that I knew Walter and I had become a crew. Very professionally, and with no emotion, Walter spoke: "Los Angeles Center, Aspen 20, can you give us a ground speed check?" There was no hesitation, and the replay came as if was an everyday request. "Aspen 20, I show you at one thousand eight hundred and forty-two knots, across the ground."

^ Further reading/geeking-out does say it is (purportedly) unmanned. Sheesh, a bit of a shame; no more human stories that capture the imagination. But that move does remove the risk of pilot's loss of life or capture.

Title: Re: The Awesome Thread
Post by: splerdu on September 04, 2015, 01:33:41 PM
^ If you think about it there's really no reason for reconnaissance not to be unmanned. No decisions to shoot or not, less political risk if a pilot gets captured, plus the plane can go much faster without flimsy humans inside.

I remember reading somewhere that reconnaissance will always be needed, because satellites never see the whole picture (there are gaps in between when they pass over any geographic area). Makes you wonder why they retired the SR-71. The mission role is obviously still important enough that the Americans are even now still flying the older U-2 in order to do it.

Incredibly fortuitous timing too. Until 2 weeks before the gravity waves from the black hole merger arrived no one had the capability to detect this.

British number theorist Andrew Wiles has received the 2016 Abel Prize for his solution to Fermat’s last theorem — a problem that stumped some of the world’s greatest minds for three and a half centuries. The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters announced the award — considered by some to be the 'Nobel of mathematics' — on 15 March.

"To be honest, it somewhat baffles my mind," Linksys Global Product Manager Vince La Duca told Ars. But production won't stop any time soon as long as Linksys' suppliers, including chipmaker Broadcom, keep selling the parts needed to build the WRT54GL.

This video popped up at my home page in youtube (An SF4 tourney final YEARS ago) and the reactions and quick decision-making and adjustments made is just mind boggling to me now. The hit-confirms, command queueing in the joystick that inputs never stop, the timing, the muscle memory. IMHO, it is knocking at the limits of what humans can achieve. INTENSE!
