Leaked NASA paper shows the ‘impossible’ EM Drive really does work:

Did we just achieve fuel-less propulsion?

The results of NASA’s tests on the ‘impossible’ EM Drive have been leaked, and they reveal that the controversial propulsion system really does work, and is capable of generating impressive thrust in a vacuum, even after error measurements have been accounted for.

The EM Drive has made headlines over the past year, because it offers the incredible possibility of a fuel-free propulsion system that could potentially get us to Mars in just 70 days. But there’s one major problem: according to the current laws of physics, it shouldn’t work. Continue reading »

Moderatorin Will hat Mühe, den aufgebrachten Wissenschaftler Spitzer zu bändigen. Dieser verliert völlig die Fassung. Er spricht von „armen Kindern“ und davon, dass Jugendliche erst ab 14 oder 16 Jahren an die digitalen Medien herangeführt werden dürften. Programmieren frühestens ab der achten Klasse. Er sieht schon jetzt viele „seelenlose, willenlose Menschen“, versaut durch Smartphone und Tablet. Lobo und Lindner versuchen, zu widersprechen. Vergeblich. „Sie haben keine Ahnung!“, redet sich der Psychiater weiter in Fahrt. Anne Will versucht es: „Herr Spitzer? Herr Spitzer! Können Sie mich hören?“

Er kann nicht. „Dick, dumm und gewalttätig“ würden Kinder durchs Digitale. Lobo und Lindner versuchen, zu widersprechen. Vergeblich. „Sie haben keine Ahnung!“ Böse Antwort von Christian Lindner: „Sie sind das lebende Beispiel dafür, dass der Verzicht auf digitale Medien nicht zu besseren Umgangsformen führt.“ Es braucht eben nicht jeder Mensch die Digitalisierung, um sozial inkompetent zu sein.

Apple’s new ‘wireless’ headphones emit radiation … right next to your brain:

To much fanfare and excitement, Apple has announced that the iPhone 7 will come with wireless earbuds, ditching the much-reviled and ever-tangled cords of conventional earbuds. The wireless earbuds, dubbed “AirPods,” will be water-resistant and are, in the words of company CEO Tim Cook, the first step to a “wireless future.”

They will also fire dangerous, cancer-causing radiation directly into the brains of users, experts have warned.

The iPhone will communicate via Bluetooth directly with the right earbud, which will send a separate Bluetooth signal to the left earbud. This means the radiation carrying the signal will pass directly through the user’s brain. Continue reading »

3D Printed and Homemade ‘Ghost Guns’ Must Now Be Registered in California:

Sacramento, CA — California law will no longer look the other way on homemade guns, or “ghost guns,” as gun control advocates call them. Building a gun from parts or a 3-D printer will soon require a background check. It will also require that a state-provided serial number be permanently fixed to the weapon.

Governor Jerry Brown (D) signed Assembly Bill 857 into law on Friday, much to the chagrin of gun rights groups. Brown had vetoed similar legislation in 2014, according to the Sacramento Bee. Continue reading »

Cellphone-Tower-Mobile-Phone

The cell phone radiation-induced cancer time bomb is about to explode:

In 2008, J. Leonard Lichtenfeld, MD, MACP was the Deputy Chief Medical Office for the American Cancer Society’s national office. He admitted he was no expert in radio frequencies (RF), or electromagnetic radiation, but he wanted to respond to a memorandum from the University of Pittsburg Cancer Institute that suggested a possible link between the use of cell phones and brain cancer. Included were warnings for children to not use cell phones unless it was an emergency. Dr. Lichtenfeld opined that the report was not conclusive, and reiterated the philosophy of the American Cancer Society who believed that “current evidence doesn’t link cell phones  to cancer.” Today, if you visit the Brain Tumor Netowork, a portal for brain cancer information and support, you will find the same conclusion. They just don’t know exactly how brain tumors are caused. Continue reading »

Millennials engage with their smartphones more than they do actual humans:

It’s not your imagination: Millennials really are glued to their smartphones.

Nearly four in 10 millennials (39%) say they interact more with their smartphones than they do with their significant others, parents, friends, children or co-workers, according to a survey of more than 1,000 people released Wednesday by Bank of America. That’s compared with fewer than one in three people of all ages who say they engage with their smartphones more.

San Antonio man has engine that gets 100 mpg:

We’ve heard rumors for years about engines capable of getting 100 miles to a gallon of fuel, but the reality is much closer than you might think. Josh “Mac” MacDowell says he not only has the engine, he has come up with an idea, strong enough the U.S. patent office has given him a patent for it. MacDowell is using a Stirling engine, coupled with thermopile technology to make it possible to drive a Hybrid electric car and never have to stop to charge it.

The Stirling engine was actually invented 200 years ago, in 1816. The engine is driven by the exchange of hot and cold air, much like nature drives a thunderstorm. The Stirling engine is capable of using roughly 50% of the energy it produces. An internal combustion engine, like the ones in our vehicles, uses about 14%. Continue reading »

A Dexterous Warehouse Robot Does Things Amazon’s Automated Helpers Can’t:

The Toru robot can take items off the shelf all by itself, which means less need for human helpers.

A German firm called Magazino believes it has built a better warehouse robot: the Toru. Unlike the robots used in Amazon warehouses that help locate items for shipping by moving entire shelves, Toru robots can pick up individual items.

“The [Amazon] approach saves a lot of human work spent on walking around, but there is still the need for a human worker to eventually pick the item off the shelf,” explains Magazino CEO and cofounder Frederik Brantner (see “Inside Amazon’s Warehouse, Human-Robot Symbiosis”). Continue reading »
