Sunspot Solar Observatory Shutdown Mystery

quote [ We're learning the National Solar Observatory in Sunspot, NM, will stay shut down indefinitely. The facility was evacuated more than a week ago because of a security concern, but investigators are not saying what that concern is. The FBI told KOAT the security concern is not about aliens or UFO's, but the entrance was blocked off by yellow crime tape. "We were told we had a credible threat through the FBI and to leave," said evacuee Sean Williams. He and his family were one of five households told to leave the area. He said they weren't given a reason why. ]

First the DOE opens a gateway to the Upside Down, and now this!

PRESIDENTIAL ALERT: Incoming, unblockable phone message from your President, Donald J. Trump, next Thursday

quote [ Next Thursday, the Federal Emergency Management Agency will do its first test of a system that allows the president to send a message to most U.S. cellphones. Experts didn't appear to be too concerned that Trump, known to use his smartphone to blast opponents, berate subordinates and take shots at the news media on Twitter, could abuse the wireless emergency alert (WEA) system. The test is supposed to take place at 2:18 p.m. EDT on Sept. 20. Under the Warning, Alert, and Response Network (WARN) Act of 2006, cellphone users cannot opt out of the presidential alerts. ]

You have been warned.

Evidence of 7,200 year old cheese in Croatia

quote [ Analysis of fatty residue in pottery from the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia revealed evidence of fermented dairy products—soft cheeses and yogurts—from about 7,200 years ago. "This pushes back cheese-making by 4,000 years," said Sarah B. McClure, associate cheese professor of cheese anthropology. ]

In the beginning, there was cheese...

Teledildonics Patent Expired

quote [ Sex toy innovators of America: we have good news for you! The so-called "teledildonics patent," owned by a company that many would deem a "patent troll," has just expired. Now US sex toy companies can create the Internet-controlled vibrators, dildos, and whatever else of their dreams with significantly less fear of being sued. "It's a classic example of how an overbroad patent can frustrate innovation." ]

The industry is now free to release its frustration.

Children "at risk of robot influence"

quote [ The research, conducted at the University of Plymouth, found that while adults were not swayed by robots, children were. The fact that children tended to trust robots without question raised ethical issues as the machines became more pervasive, said researchers. ]

Monday, 13 August 2018


quote [ In a recent paper, researchers at the University of Toledo have begun to parse the process by which close or prolonged exposure to the 445 nanometer shortwave called "blue light" can trigger irreversible damage in eye cells. The results could have profound consequences for consumer technology. The blue light causes the retinal to oxidize, creating “toxic chemical species.” The retinal, energized by this particular band of light, kills the photoreceptor cells, which do not grow back once they are damaged. ]

Rooks to clean up French theme park

quote [ Six crows trained to pick up rubbish will be put to work next week at a French historical theme park. "The goal is not just to clear up, because the visitors are generally careful to keep things clean" but also to show that "nature itself can teach us to take care of the environment", said Nicolas de Villiers of the Puy du Fou park, in the western Vendee region. The birds will be encouraged to spruce up the park through the use of a small box that delivers a nugget of bird food each time the rook deposits a cigarette end or small piece of rubbish. ]

Not to be outdone, Disneyland Paris has hired a real giant rat to mingle with the guests.

Trump-loving freedom-of-speech aficionados attack London bookstore, judge books incorrectly by their covers

quote [ Ukip has suspended three party members - Elizabeth Jones, Luke Nash-Jones and Martin Costello - following an incident at Britain’s largest socialist bookshop when far-right protesters chanted fascist songs, tore up books and threatened staff. “They chanted about Muslims and paedophilia, and called us traitors. While not mentioning Tommy Robinson, the links are there to see,” the worker said. ]

They're getting bolder. But not smarter.

Venezuelan President survives apparent drone assassination attempt

quote [ Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro survived an apparent assassination attempt Saturday after several drones armed with explosives flew toward him during a speech at a military parade.
Live footage of the event showed him suddenly looking up startled mid-speech, while beside him his wife, Cilia Flores, winces after a loud bang.
Dozens of soldiers are also seen scattering during the event to commemorate the 81st anniversary of the Venezuelan national guard in the capital of Caracas. ]

Slaughterbotic kamikaze assassination micro-drones are now!

This new Star Trek series will explore Next Generation character Jean-Luc Picard's next chapter and will see Patrick Stewart return to the role. ]

Expect timely commentary on leadership.
