“This technology is very worrying as it enables government sectors to not only plant false or undesirable items on one’s computer, but now transcripts of private phone calls can be adjusted to include conversations tat simply never took place. Truly Orwellian.”

The ovary was created using a porous scaffold made from gelatin, according to the all-female research team, which described the study this week in the journal Nature Communications. Gelatin is a form of collagen, the most abundant protein in mammals. Compared to natural collagen, gelatin is more broken down and thus can be made into an ink that can be used in a 3D printer.
The New York Times tells us that Today’s Energy Jobs Are in Solar, Not Coal. But watch the pea – these jobs are “energy jobs”, not jobs that use energy.
Apparently it takes 79 people to create the same energy through solar as one person does through coal. (And that would be cheaper, how? )
Germany’s Energiewende is faltering badly.
The truth is that the Energiewende is on the same path as the construction of the Berlin BER airport – racing down the highway to total debacle – something that everyone is doing their damnedest to ignore and wishing it would just go away.
Moreover, Eisenring writes, it is causing “collateral damage” to Germany’s neighboring countries, as huge supply fluctuations threaten to destabilize their grids and electricity markets.

Robots are the Great Equalizer.
Apple will invest in and promote “advanced manufacturing” in the US, CEO Tim Cook told CNBC’s Jim Cramer on Wednesday after the somewhat uninspiring earnings report. It was one of the ways Apple would create jobs in America, he said. To do that, Apple would put $1 billion in a fund that would invest in “advanced manufacturing” companies.
Apple has already “created two million jobs in America,” he said in the interview. This includes 80,000 jobs at Apple in the US; plus jobs at US suppliers, such as Corning, which makes the glass for the iPhone and iPad, and 3M, which makes adhesives that Apple uses in its devices; plus the “developer community” of almost 1.5 million people who write apps that, as he said, “change the world.”
Scientists are now able to create an image of objects in remote spaces using only wireless internet and phone signals, according to new research that’s likely to alarm privacy advocates.
In Baltimore, there’s a self-driving machine that’s pulling garbage from the river — and they call it Mr. Trash Wheel. That’s because, quite literally, it’s a water wheel being powered by the river’s current.
The wheel propels the platform forward, and then the collected trash is deposited to a rear dumpster via conveyer belt. On days when the current is too weak, Mr. Trash Wheel can be powered by solar panels attached to its canopy.
