lets see, in a person's daily life where do all the radiations sources one comes across come from?
1. The sun.
2. Cosmic rays from space.
3. The burning of petroleum products and coal. (This is a big one nobody talks about).
4. Radon gas emissions.
5. Cigarette smoke (especially if the tobacco was grown in uranium rich soil)
6. Airplane flights, especially high altitude jets.
7. Electrical outlets and appliances inside the home.
8. Heavy industrial electrical equipment (electric motors and generators, welders etc...)
9. Medical X-rays and other medical methods.
10. Cell phones, computer monitors, electric light bulbs... and the list goes on and on.
As to how much cancer is caused by any of these sources is really dependent on the amount of exposure and how susceptible one is to the condition. I'm certain that living itself is carcinogenic... so where do you draw the line... Where do you force people to label their products as "carcinogenic"? I'm sure the money spent labeling these products if spent in the research for the cure for cancer could be better spent than trying to label all these products. The solution is obvious, and that is the education of people to the dangers involved in anything done in excess. As this is usually the root of anything that causes cancer and other conditions. It's the constant irritation the body's immune system undergoes that must cope with these irritants. Hopefully through time the human species will evolve an immunity (or create one) to the "cancer" condition, but even that may prove ro be carcinogenic. Cancer kills, find a cure for it, but learn to live with it until then.
Lets listen to it!
Planets like this need to be thoroughly analyzed for all types of radio transmissions. There must be some form of life out there and planets like this would certainly be the most promising to listen to.
Great for hand held energy weapons
This design will one day make the gun obsolete. You will have hand held laser pistols that actually work now. Oh man, you know this is already here if we know about it. Be sure NOT to ever carry one of these batteries in your pockets with coins, ouch!
From out of the frying pad, into the fire.
Some people. Not satisfied, the grass is always greener on the other side.
Regardless "Little Kim" needs to be put down like a "Mad Dog".
What about satellites?
Hopefully this thing has enough to take out overhead satellites in space also. Now that would be impressive.
Why don't they start charging a tax on the water people consume in public toilets? Makes about as much sense, but you watch it's coming!
In a perfect world
In a perfect world FOX tv would be banned from the air! All it does is supply garbage and lies to the public to help dumb it down and frankly in my humble opinion, the fewer people affected by it's immense ignorance the better. Who needs em? Nobody!
A pound is a pound - (Gravity Determines Weight)
On Earth a pound mass is a pound weight. You can use any unit of measure you want, including triple decked buses. Weight is defined as the mass of an object under the acceleration of a gravitational field. The Earth by definition has a gravitational field of 1g (32 feet per second per second or 980 cm / sec^2 in a vacuum. This sometimes varies slightly at various locations). On Mars the gravity is about 38% that of Earth so a triple decked buss mass would weigh 38% of a triple decked bus on Mars. Hope this clears up any misconceptions (assuming there ever were any). NASA recently crashed a couple probes into the moon which mapped the gravitational field of the moon and there are very detailed maps of the gravitational variations of our moon now, but even there, mass is mass, and weight is mass under the effect of gravity.
This is the beginning of the end of Facebook. This is a decisive moment. Now when it goes by the way of MySpace you will know why.
This is fantastic
I wonder if graphene could be used to enhance the current carrying capacity of the nano wire. It would be nice if someone could develop a room temperature superconductor also. Perhaps, someday.
Eventually there will be massive solar arrays in space permanently fixed on the sun transmitting the power back to Earth via microwaves to central distribution points. The problem is, all this could be avoided if they would just come up with zero-point energy or, reliable fusion. So the question is, is this all a waste of money? Just how far away is fusion power? It would be nice if we could convert sea water into power. We certainly would have enough to last us until we do develop zero-point energy.
The smiley face because it looks the most like the sun, the biggest fusion plant around.
It'll be a great help for SETI
Imagine that, now SETI will have the ability to choose planets with the most likely signal for life to start recording it for electronic signatures and possibly will be able to tune in on "Alien" television stations. Hope they don't send us a bill. Like "Pay per View".
Life in Mars
Once the intelligent life on Mars is exposed and those people in charge of the shadow government that are preventing the actual discovery that NASA is totally capable of achieving are stopped. There will not ever be any problem with funding the role that NASA will play in technological development of the entire Earth, as a whole. It will no doubt receive any funding it needs to develop trade routes and diplomatic ties with the Martians (Not all Martians are evil). All one needs to do to prove to themselves that this is real is to actually look at, and study close-up, the HiRise images coming back from the Mars Observer from just the area around the base of Mt. Sharp, to realize there really is something there. Why NASA refuses to disclose this information is obvious, the "Black" or "Shadow" government in charge of the world is pulling their purse strings and they are refusing to allow NASA to release anything about the "Nephilim" creatures, which are real and quite possibly a threat to members of this "New World Order" , that wants control of this planet. The Pope just resigned, the prophecy is about to be fulfilled. The "End Times" are upon us, wake up. For further information, you can try this link: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.587982277897363.142375.100000567875198&type=1&l=49364fe6db Here I have collected hundreds of Images in several albums from the raw image files of the Curiosity rover and the HiRise Orbiter camera.
So with all these virtual anti-particles, how much longer before vacuum energy will become a reality? It seems if these virtual particles really exist in the vacuum, they could theoretically be manipulated virtually, then supplied with enough energy (E=MC^2) to bring them out of the hidden dimension they are in, to annihilate with their reality counterpart. (which should produce two times E=MC^2) This sounds like Sci-Fi, but there has to be a way to create an energy efficient way to produce a strong stream of anti-particles that could be used as an energy source that would be much more efficient than even fusion. Perhaps this is off topic, but they were talking about anti-matter here. Even a way to produce a steady stream of positrons could do the trick, you would think, and one source could be the virtual positrons that surround each real electron. Imagine how much energy you could produce by colliding a stream of naked electrons with their positron counterparts.
The key word is "Alternate" reality
The original "Big Bang" had the universe expanding until it reached a maximum size then collapsing back to nothing. Now the newest theory says it will keep expanding forever, until all matter cools to the temperature of absolute zero. This theory creates an "Alternate" universe and it could be exactly identical to this one. Who knows? If you could control the Higgs field (the absolute vacuum of space) you could conceivably produce any reality you so desire. By the time this takes place, if man is still around and we all haven't ascended into "energy beings" where we all exist as pure energy, perhaps those left in the physical realm will be intelligent enough to realize how to control all the dimensions of this multi-verse, and they will be able to go back in time (perhaps) to where they will never have to worry about this approaching change. There are after all, 10 dimensions (with respect to time) in this reality, and I'm sure at least one of those dimensions leads away from this disaster.
Wake me up when they figure out that all motion in the third dimension is through the Higgs field with the process of neutral currents at the resolution of the Planck's dimension. In other words, all A-toms are replaced from the vacuum (Higgs Field) every Planck dimension and this process is so slow that nothing inside the third dimension can travel faster than light. Haven't worked out all the QED od QCD formulation yet, but I'm working on it.This includes Brownian motion as well. If you could control the Higgs field, theoretically, you could stop time in that field. If you could rearrange the Higgs field, you could travel from point a to point b in one Planck dimension. Some pretty serious stuff.
Make a giant ChemCam like the Curiosity rover uses.
It'd be nice if some astronomer could make some kind of laser telescope configuration to hit that rock with a pulse laser and get a spectrum flash from it to actually determine what it is made of.
Re: Why not launch from altitude ?
Why not launch from an Electro-Gravitic platform at about 300 miles up? They started developing Electro-Gravitics in 1952 and the project went "black" in the late 50s. By now I'm sure they have an anti-gravity platform about the size of three football fields. Just look at the TR-3B Astra.
The root of the problem.
Millions of years ago, when Mars still had its atmosphere and the Martians visited Earth, (You know the Martians had wings like "Angels"?) anyway, these "Angels brought these little "Devils" along with them for entertainment and some of them got out when they got to Earth. Well, to make a long story short, evolution took over and wallah, we have Mr. Muggles and all his descendants.
Life did and does exist on Mars.
If you really want to see the evidence. Look at the raw images coming back from the Curiosity rover.
If you want to see my collection go here.
Decide for yourself, but I think NASA is lying.
Maybe I'm old fashioned
It used to be that the students showed up at school in the morning and reported to their home room, where roll call was performed and the student was marked absent or present. This seems to be a much simpler process than all this other techno-babble. What's wrong with the teachers actually doing their jobs and creating a classroom environment that keeps the students interested in their own education and inspiring them to want to come to class. If the teachers today would just do their jobs correctly this "tag" would not be necessary. In my opinion, the necessity of this RFID tag not only violates the individual's personal civil right to anonymity but it also represents a massive failure or flaw in the design of the educational system. What kind of an example is the educational system setting when they treat everyone as if they are all prisoners? What kind of example are they setting when they show everyone that they don't trust any of them and FORCE them to wear such a device? I hope the people involved win this lawsuit and win big. This will set a prime example for other institutions contemplating this "easy way out" for student control.
Stop sign, because this idea has to stop.
The ISP should not have to have the responsibility to enforce these accusations. There should be a warrant filed for each offence and a court of law should judge each offense. Any other action should be considered "NULL and VOID". This is barratry, plain and simple, it's just a bunch of lawyers working for the entertainment trying to drum up business like a bunch of "Ambulance Chasers".
This should seem obvious
If I was in charge of a major criminal investigation outfit like the FBI, I'd establish companies like "HideMyAss" just to find out who is using it. You really just don't know who's in control sometimes. The moral of the story is obvious, just don't do the crime and then you don't have anything to worry about.
What do you do if someone falsely accuses you here?
Barratry n. creating legal business by stirring up disputes and quarrels, generally for the benefit of the lawyer who sees fees in the matter. Barratry is illegal in all states and subject to criminal punishment and/or discipline by the state bar, but there must be a showing that the resulting lawsuit was totally groundless. There is a lot of border-line barratry in which attorneys, in the name of being tough or protecting the client, fail to seek avenues for settlement of disputes or will not tell the client he/she has no legitimate claim.
There are avenues of recourse in the event anyone is falsely accused.
Usually when something like this gets discontinued, there is some kind of replacement. Perhaps a device that folds up like newsprint and is reuseable. Would be nice if you could get a subscription to the New York Times and a free E-Reader came along with it. Would certainly save a lot of trees.
This seems like something that was attempted years ago, only to melt down from the heat they generated. Hope they have a solution for that.
So what's the problem?
Some kid broke their window and an office worker obviously didn't like the Windows install, so he/she did him a favor and installed a much better operating system on his computer. It's his paranoia that caused all the turmoil. Doesn't sound like he should hold public office if he's going to jump to so many conclusions. :)
Re: its all unwinding now
That video has been removed due to a copyright complaint by Viacom. What do they have to do with it?
Falling into a black hole.
As you accelerate to the escape velocity of a black hole which would be greater than C, you would enter into the dimension of time and all eternity would have to pass by before even one atom of your existence could penetrate the event horizon. Do the math.
Now to get rid of the need for gas.
If they make the car run on water, it would be perfect.
Light speed is not the limit
Just to point out, the speed of light is only theoretically the ultimate speed for any object that has rest mass. If you can switch off the mass field of an object it could theoretically travel at any velocity, using only light beams to propel it. Of course since light only has the speed of light, I'm assuming you would need to use some other form of propulsion that would bring you past the speed of light. Perhaps this is where the warp field would come into play, after you eliminate your mass field and have attained light speed, you would have compressed space in front of your ship and it would be more concentrated with matter, which could be converted to fuel to propel your ship. Of course there are a lot of things to work out before this is possible, but given enough time I think man will eventually succeed at it.
This is good news. It's about time the physicists started looking at the feasibility of FTL travel. Hopefully they will develop the technique and come up with a plan. I'm so looking forward to the Vulcans paying us a visit and inviting us into the "Federation". Wasn't it one of the Federations prerequisites that a society had to have developed warp travel before they were allowed into it?.
The atomic explosion, because this is what would happen if the energies involved got mishandled.
Life on Mars?
I don't know, I've been thinking a lot about it though. I've posted a lot of images on facebook that have peaked my interest on the subject. If you're interested the link is here:
I'm just offering it in case your interested, you might see something that peaks your interest also.
I've heard that too, but since I personally have only Windows to compare it too, I still believe there is more future with linux than with Windows. Unfortunately, not enough of the bandwagon is following along. I haven't yet tried Lubuntu, but an certainly looking forward to it after the disappointments I have had with Windows. It seems to me whenever something works well with Windows it gets replaced with something that is more comercialized and more expensive. Just look at the garbage being produced in Windows 8. My old Windows XP pro had better graphics and functionality in my opinion, and I'm not even going to discuss the problems I've had with Windows Vista. My son uses Windows 7 and he literally hates it. I can still hear him through his bedroom door pounding on the table and cursing at the software.
Actually I look at it this way. They needed to test the data stream and all the radio relays, why not transmit something that not going to matter if by the slight misfortune, something goes wrong?
I personally use openSuSE_12.1 on my desktop, just switched over this year and was running Windows for over 10 years prior to that. Personally, I do so much more with SuSE than windows it's amazing. They have come a long way in the last ten years.
I'm not surprised
I have a friend who died last April and his account is still on Facebook. They never check the obits. I'm sure there are at least 50 million dead people on facebook too. If you really want to check out a social network with false accounts, check out Second Life. I believe about 90% of the customers there have at least 2 accounts, and I personally know about 10 people that have over 25 accounts. It's not uncommon at all for people to create alternate identities. It gives them a chance to take a break from some of the jerks they have to deal with on their other account (main account).
Actually, with 367 people the odds are not all the days in a year would be someone's birthday. There would more than likely be several sets of people with the same birthday in that group. Thus leaving some days vacant.
I migrated... Right to Linux
I'm running SuSE_12.1 right now, makes this laptop run 5 times better than it ever did with Windows XP. This laptop is 11 years old and it runs almost as good as my HP core 2 Desktop running Windows Vista. I'm changing that to Linux too after I find the time.
," Markey said in a statement. "Law enforcement agencies are looking for a needle, but what are they doing with the haystack? We need to know how law enforcement differentiates between records of innocent people, and those that are subjects of investigation, as well as how it handles, administers, and disposes of this information."
It's simple - Most law enforcement personel will tell you, "There are no inocent people."
Sprint was surprisingly candid on this matter. "There is no statute that directly addresses the provision of location data of a mobile device to the government," its letter to Markey's office explains. "Given the importance of this issue and the competing and at times contradictory legal standards, Sprint believes Congress should clarify the legal requirements for disclosure of all types of location information to law enforcement personnel."
This is an excellent idea.
...Once you lose liberty or freedom, it's gone forever, protect what you own.
This at first looks like a good idea
That's the trouble with politicians, too often they perform the knee-jerk action when someone suggests an idea that looks good on paper, but with some deeper thought, (which I'm sure none of those responsible for this did) it's not a good idea at all. Yet still there is no accountability for their mistakes.
Bing-- What good is it?
I found "Bing Bar installed on my XP machine and didn't realize it was installed with the Windows update, so I attempted to remove it. It destroyed my copy of Windows XP ans I had to reformat. It's back, and it's still on my Windows explorer top menu bars. I'm switching to Konqueror. You know what that means... Good bye Windows hello OpenSuSe 12.1. Now put that in your pipe and smoke it Microsoft!
Re: Its and it's
The walrus has two tusks, its' tusks are located on its' face.
So what's next?
After they get the mind speach thing working flawlessly, they need to work on the wireless implants to the localized nerves in the arms and legs, so they can get the arms and feet working. That would be awesome. It may be possible to reanimate people with these conditions afterall.
Yea, good luck with that face regognition stuff.
Personally I always post one of my fractal pictures I've made for a profile image and my wife uses the family cat. Yea, good luck with finding images of us on facebook.
Re: You're making too much of this
Back when Windows (ME) (More Errors) came out I was running a Dell desktop and had so many problems multitasking I bought the newest version of SUSE Linux and installed that. I immediately found I had 12 complete different desktops that would run simultaneously, what an improvement! I used that until the computer became outdated and the new HP Pavilion I bought had Windows Vista OEM. It's been working fine for my usage presently, but I'm getting ready to upgrade to a 64 bit machine. Judging from what I'm hearing about Metro, I'm going back to Linux. I wonder if I can upgrade the SUSE 6.0 version I have? Anyway, Microsoft had better take heed, because I'm not the only one contemplating this. It seems the new upgrades Microsoft come out with, cost more, and have less! That is just plain wrong!
Actually, I think victims, (actual victims) should remain anonymous, however: if it's proven the charges were an outright lie, there should be as much publicity as possible pointing to the act the liar has committed and there should be some recourse for the victim of the lie to punish the liar. To bear false witness against your fellow man is against God's law.
