Scientists develop biological computer to encrypt and decipher images
Scientists have developed a “biological computer” capable of deciphering images encrypted on DNA chips. As a proof of concept, the scientists encrypted the Scripps Research and Technion logos on a single DNA chip and, using software, decrypted the separate fluorescent images.

Hitler would have loved The Singularity: Mind-blowing benefits of merging human brains and computers
Of all the tall tales in the science-fiction TV series Star Trek, what impressed me most when I was a  little boy was the Vulcan mind meld. Laying his hands on the head of a human (or, in one of the films, a humpback whale), Mr Spock could, for a moment, dissolve the distance between two living things. Each experienced everything the other felt, thought, knew and saw. Now it seems scientists are about to make the Vulcan mind meld a reality – and go far beyond it. Ten years ago, the US National Science Foundation predicted ‘network-enhanced telepathy’ – sending thoughts over the internet – would be practical by the 2020s.

83-Year-Old Woman Gets the World's First 3-D Printed Jaw Transplant
A European octogenarian is the recipient of the first-ever 3-D printed jawbone, made of titanium powder that was sintered together one layer at a time. The recipient regained her ability to speak a few hours after the surgery, Belgian doctors said Monday. It could pave the way for a new wave of 3-D printed body parts — maybe not full organs yet, but certainly bones or joints.

Internetska blokada mozga
Na pitanje 'što internet čini našem mozgu' pokušao je odgovoriti američki novinar Nicholas Carr. Rezultat je, po svemu sudeći, poražavajući, barem ako je vjerovati sadržaju njegove knjige 'Plitko', svjetskog bestselera i, po mišljenju mnogih, najbolje studije koja je dosad napravljena o toj tematici. U razgovoru za, Carr priča o svojim istraživanjima i negativnim utjecajima interneta na mozak korisnika

The Discovery of Dolphin Language
Researchers in the United States and Great Britain have made a significant breakthrough in deciphering dolphin language in which a series of eight objects have been sonically identified by dolphins. Team leader, Jack Kassewitz of, ‘spoke’ to dolphins with the dolphin’s own sound picture words. Dolphins in two separate research centers understood the words, presenting convincing evidence that dolphins employ a universal “sono-pictorial” language of communication.

ART CASHIN: Beware The Ides Of March—Or Maybe A Few Days Later
As a Greek/Debtor deal has been dangled before markets day after day for over three weeks, rumors of a different deal have begun to circulate.  That rumor is of the EU finding a way to engineer a structured default of Greek debt, keep them in the Euro-zone and restructure Greek debt and finances in the post-default environment.

Chaos and Consent: The Logistics of the One World Government
But what is happening has happened before in many times and places; it's just that now it seems to be spread over the entire globe. Just so you know, I'm not one of those who is taken in by the saber-rattling war propaganda. That too, has happened before and before and before. It's a ruse, a drama played out between ostensible adversaries to keep the masses afraid and loaded with stress so that they will welcome draconian controls everywhere.

All blue-eyed people can be traced back to one ancestor who lived 10,000 years ago near the Black Sea
Frank Sinatra's were legendary, Paul Newman's melted a million hearts while Cameron Diaz's dazzle in modern Hollywood. But how - and why - blue eyes arose has always been something of a genetic mystery. Until now. According to a team of researchers from Copenhagen University, a single mutation which arose as recently as 6-10,000 years ago was responsible for all the blue-eyed people alive on Earth today.

Monsanto's Dirty Tricks: Atrazine
Lyle Jackson learned all about that in the summer of 1985. That is when he concluded that the so-called experts who had flown into Fayette County, Iowa, to test drinking-water wells for herbicide contamination were looking in the wrong places. The story of how that happened, a tale pieced together from internal EPA documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act and from interviews with those involved, illustrates just how far a chemical manufacturer will go to make data come out its way.
