Ratings are everything in TV, right? Well, only if they don’t interfere with political correctness. Raymond Stiller, who has more than a casual connection with the “Tonight Show,” thinks ratings leader Jay Leno was dumped because of his Obama jokes. It sure couldn’t be his age. Leno is three years younger than David Letterman, who looks older and is still doing well.

Imagine a trip to Mars that takes only three days. According to a report in “New Scientist” magazine, a hypothetical device based on a controversial theory could potentially do just that. Professor Jochem Hauser, of Applied Sciences University in Salzgitter, Germany, reports NASA has contacted him about the subject. He says the best case scenario would be testing such a device within five years. But he cautions that’s assuming the technology works.
Airborne radiation was reported Friday morning near Carlsbad, New Mexico, resulting in the opposite of an evacuation from the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant. Workers were kept on site until they could be tested. According to DOE spokesman Roger Nelson, “I believe it’s safe to say we’ve never seen a level like we are seeing.” The incident caught the attention of New Mexico Senator Tom Udall,.
It’s starting out slowly and innocently. FedBizOps.gov is seeking contractors for a project that would “develop technologies to sense and exploit human bio-signatures at the molecular and macro (anthropometric) level.” And like a lot of control grid proposals, it is hiding right in the open — on a government website that’s accessible to the public
Jonathan Meister is deaf. That’s why he was unable to respond to police officers when they confronted him outside a friend’s house. He wasn’t doing anything illegal — just moving some of his own property that happened to be there. Before Meister knew it, they grabbed him by his wrists, rendering him unable to communicate in sign language. Things went downhill from there until he was tasered.
Southern Evangelical Seminary, near Charlotte, North Carolina, hopes the device will help students and faculty explore ethical issues related to bionics, human enhancement, transhumanism and nanotechnology. The 23-inch robot can recognize voices and faces, and translate from text into seven languages. Southern Evangelical is the first seminary to use such a robot. MIT, Carnegie Mellon and Tokyo University are also experimenting with similar devices. Unlike the seminary, those schools are not pursuing any application in Biblical apologetics.
