Stephen Hawking has died. The famed physicist was 76.
Post Date: 2018-03-14 09:38:34 by Deckard
It just seemed that cosmology was more exciting, because it really did seem to involve the big question: Where did the universe come from? Stephen Hawking, 8 January 1942 - 14 March 2018 British physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76. He was known for his groundbreaking work with black holes and relativity. He died at his home in Cambridge, England. A family spokesman announced the death in a statement to news media. Hawking awed the world with an unmatched ability to make science understandable and fascinating to broad audiences. PHOTO: Paul E.

Six cloned horses help rider win prestigious polo match By Jon Cohen Dec. 13, 2016 , 6:30 PM Last Saturday, at a prestigious match in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Palermo, polo player Adolfo Cambiaso rode six different horses to help his team win. That in itself is not remarkable: Cambiaso is widely considered the worlds best polo player. What is noteworthy is that all six horses were clones of the same maretheyre named Cuartetera 01 through 06and that Cambiaso did it at such a high-profile event. Its most important that he won at Palermo, says Santiago Ballester, a member of the Argentine Association of Polo in Buenos Aires. Its ...
What the SpaceX Success Means for the Moon, Mars, and More
Post Date: 2018-02-17 04:07:23 by Tooconservative
On February 6, 2018, the SpaceX Falcon Heavy took flight, demonstrating a capacity to lift 60 tons to low Earth orbit while playfully sending a Tesla Roadster on a trajectory that will take it beyond the orbit of Mars. To add to the coup, two of the Falcons three booster stages flew back to land gracefully together at the Cape, while the third barely missed pulling off a recovery landing on a drone ship stationed downrange. Elon Musk, my favorite African-American. To understand how extraordinary this accomplishment was, let us recall that in 2009, the Obama administrations blue-ribbon review committee headed former Lockheed Martin CEO Norm Augustine declared that NASA's ...
Falcon Heavy launch: Space X has an almost perfect day
Post Date: 2018-02-06 20:09:05 by Tooconservative
Youve probably seen some clips of the Space X launch that took place today already but if not you really did miss something pretty spectacular. The launch was successful though it appears one of the three boosters did not land itself properly. Still, the image of the two boosters landing themselves simultaneously on adjacent landing pads seemed unreal. And then on top of that, there was the cargo for this test launch: Elon Musks own Tesla Roadster with Spaceman at the wheel (actually Space Xs own space suit design). From Space.com: Standing 23 stories tall, the Falcon Heavy rocket is SpaceXs largest rocket yet and the most powerful booster since ...

Amazon Patents Ultrasonic Tracking Wristbands To Control Workers
Post Date: 2018-02-05 12:49:36 by 3-Dee
Amazon Patents Ultrasonic Tracking Wristbands To Control Workers Amazon is seeking to boost worker efficiency through a new set of patents squarely aimed at improving its inventory management system using radio frequency based tracking of a workers hand to monitor their performance of inventory tasks. Of course, the only thing more troubling than robots replacing human workers is the idea of robots tracking human workers hands, but i) there are profit margins to be optimized and ii) this is the same concept of being under house arrest with an ankle bracelet, it just happens that Amazon wants to put the device on the workers wrist. On January 30, 2018, the U.S. Patent ...
Fortresses, farmlands of the Maya emerge from massive LiDAR survey
Post Date: 2018-02-02 18:45:44 by Tooconservative
Huge sprawl of the civilization emerges from beneath the foliage. A recent aerial survey revealed thousands of ancient Maya structures previously hidden beneath the dense Guatemalan jungle, including houses, irrigation canals, fortifications, and even a pyramid. More importantly, though, the survey of 2,000 square kilometers of northeastern Guatemala provides a birds-eye view of the landscape of ancient Maya cities, farms, and highways. That big picture view of the Maya is letting archaeologists ask bigger questions about this still-enigmatic civilization. A sense of mystery still surrounds the Maya, mostly because so much of their once powerful and sophisticated society now lies ...

50 Top Conservative Websites [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2017-12-30 11:33:34 by Tooconservative
Ranking websites is an inexact science. There are multiple ways to measure success, including pageviews, users, unique site visitors and, perhaps most important, influence. To create this list of the top conservative sites, PJ Media looked at a variety of sources that rank them and determined the average score for each center-right site. Alexa, SimilarWeb, and Quantcast all look at different data sets, so considering all three helps to present a more complete picture. Alexa's ranking is based on "a combined measure of Unique Visitors and Pageviews" over a three month period. According to Quantcast, they measure "the number of people in the United States who visit each ...
Consciousness and Intelligence
Post Date: 2017-12-21 04:13:50 by A Pole
Because of our experience we tend to associate consciousness with intelligence, and sometimes confuse the two. However the concepts are not necessarily one and the same. Consider for example that intelligence seems to come in a spectrum, with humans ranking as the most intelligent (so far) and the other animals falling somewhere lower on the scale. Consciousness however seems to be very much a you have it or you dont kind of thing. Unlike intelligence it doesnt make any sense to talk about someone being less conscious. Perhaps you might argue that you are less conscious when you have just woken up, but this is to confuse awareness, and clear ...
President Trump Had Considerable Success Restoring The Rule of Law In 2017
Post Date: 2017-12-19 03:40:17 by Gatlin
Now is the time of year when everyone looks back on the past year, and newspapers and websites are filled with headlines like, The Top Ten News Stories of 2017, The 15 Worst Tweets in 2017, and The Top 5 Viral Videos of 2017. Unlike the first year of the Obama Administration, it is unlikely you will see any stories in the mainstream media about the success of the Trump Administration in 2017. Despite the media silence, 2017 has been a strong first year for President Trump. Lets review. Since he took the presidential oath of office, Donald Trump started working to nominate conservatives who respect the Constitution and roll back harmful regulatory ...
Former Facebook Executive: ‘You Don’t Realize It, But You Are Being Programmed’

A former Facebook executive, who openly admits to not using social media, has come out about the role he played in ripping apart the fabric of society. Chamath Palihapitiya has publicly declared that he didnt really understand the consequences of what he was doing. This isnt the first time a social media powerhouse has come forward with regret for helping create a social media platform either.

Parker has said that social media creates a social-validation feedback loop ...
Meet 'Oumuamua! The 1st Interstellar Visitor Ever Seen Gets a Name
Post Date: 2017-11-21 13:57:55 by misterwhite
We now know what to call the mysterious object from interstellar space that zoomed past Earth last month. The interloper the first known interstellar body observed within our own solar system has been named 'Oumuamua, which means "a messenger from afar arriving first" in Hawaiian, representatives of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) announced yesterday (Nov. 14). The IAU also approved an official scientific designation for 'Oumuamua: 1I/2017 U1. This is a first-of-its-kind moniker; the "I" stands for "interstellar." Previously, small objects like 'Oumuamua have received standard comet or asteroid designations, which sport ...

Elon Musk to start hyperloop project in Maryland
Post Date: 2017-10-21 12:51:15 by Willie Green
Maryland has given transportation pioneer Elon Musk permission to dig tunnels for the high-speed, underground transit system known as a hyperloop that Musk wants to build between New York and Washington. Hogan administration officials said Thursday the state has issued a conditional utility permit to let Musks tunneling firm, The Boring Co., dig a 10.3-mile tunnel beneath the state-owned portion of the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, between the Baltimore city line and Maryland 175 in Hanover. It would be the first portion of the underground system that Musk says could eventually ferry passengers from Washington to New York, with stops in Baltimore and Philadelphia, in just 29 ...
Let Sleeping Dogs Lie: It Helps Them Consolidate Memories
Post Date: 2017-10-20 17:04:30 by cranky
Want to teach an old dog new tricks? Try letting your pet take a nap. New research finds that dogs consolidate new memories in sleep, just like humans do. The study used electroencephalography (EEG), a technique that measures electrical activity in the brain via the scalp, to track snoozing dogs' brain activity. Similar to humans, the dogs showed short bursts of activity, called sleep spindles, during non-rapid-eye-movement sleep. Also as in humans, the frequency of these sleep spindles was linked to how well a dog retained new information it had learned before its nap. "It's the first time that we can actually show this in a dog," said study co-author Ivaylo Iotchev, a ...

The human brain tripled in size over the last 8 million years because we ventured further afield and NOT because our social groups got bigger

Previous studies were based on the 'social brain hypothesis'This is a theory that claims brains enlarged to help us managed bigger groupsIn the new study, researchers analysed more than 140 primate speciesFindings suggest human brains became bigger because of ecological factorsThis could explain why chimpanzee brains have not changed in size over time While previous studies have suggested that our brains evolved to become larger as our social group size got larger, a new study is calling this into question. The research indicates that instead, our brains enlarged because of ecological factors, such as expanding home range of diet. Researchers hope their findings will shed new ...
If a scientific conspiracy theory is funny, that doesn’t mean it’s a joke
Post Date: 2017-10-11 11:29:26 by Tooconservative
If you feel like flat Earth theory has gotten unaccountably popular recently, youre right. According to Google Trends, search interest in the flat Earth conspiracy theory has already had several distinct peaks in the last year. (The last year was 2017, not 1519, just to be clear.) Its funny, weird, and while its certainly not at the top of our list of problems as a society, its not entirely innocent either.Interest surged in February and March, then again in May, then again in August and September. These jumps are mostly tied to a couple of strange outbursts by celebrities, notably 2010s favorite cheeseball rapper and Gossip Girl backing vocalist ...
