HP Just Turned The Computing World On Its Head

HP just announced the next revolution of evolution of computing.  In fact, the computing solution they’ve come up with is beyond revolutionary. 80 times less energy consumed. Photons (light) are used for processor to memory communication instead of electrons. 160 petabytes of stable long term non-volatile memory, byte addressable,  accessible in under 250 nanoseconds.  That’s the equivalent…

Police Training Video From A Time When Cops Behaved Like Humans

I love the opening party scene. Today, this party would have been busted in one of the following ways: 1. SWAT raid with assault rifles, flash bangs, tear gas, dogs, and helicopters. 2.  Uniformed raid with tasers, batons, pepper spray and a multitude of beat downs. 3. Uniformed raid with cops killing everyone who tries to run.…

The DEA: Four Decades of Impeding And Rejecting Science

Ooooh that has to hurt. http://www.drugpolicy.org/sites/default/files/DPA-MAPS_DEA_Science_Final.pdf From the executive summary: The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is charged with enforcing federal drug laws. Under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, its powers include the authority to schedule drugs (alongside other federal agencies) and to license facilities for the production and use of scheduled drugs in federally-approved…

Gold Produced From Ground Up Beer Bottles

Assuming these guys are legit, that pretty much…

The Terror of Immigration

I’m quite dismayed to see so many so-called libertarians up in arms about the recent flood of immigrants coming to the US.  Lest you forget, the entire nation was built on the backs of immigrants, starting from the colonial area, right on through the industrial revolution. Let’s say there is a way to build the…

Dwarf Galaxies Call Standard Model Into Question

Phys.org reports: Satellite dwarf galaxies at the edges of the Milky Way and neighboring Andromeda defy the accepted model of galaxy formation, and recent attempts to pigeon-hole them into the model are flawed, an international team of scientists reports. The mismatch raises questions about the accuracy of the standard model of cosmology, which is the widely…
