ScienceDaily: 'Termite Guts Can Save The Planet,' Says Nobel Laureate: "Chu, who shared the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1997, has begun studying termite guts -- one place in nature where a key hurdle for carbon-neutral energy supply has already been solved. Termite guts take indigestible cellulose, which makes up the bulk of all plant material grown on earth, and convert it to ethanol, which even today is a versatile and popular fuel. "

Trossen Robotics - Robot Kits - Robot Parts - Robot Sensors - Robot controllers: "It's not a hard concept to grasp. A new model in robotic development. One which allows for students, hobbyists, and research labs to share their code and advancements with each other. For far too long robotics have been reinventing the robotic wheel over and over and over again. It's time we start standing upon each other's shoulders and advancing together as a worldwide community. "

Wednesday, August 23, 2006 - Robot news and Robotics Info: "Forget about playing checkers or chess with a robot. Yukiyasu Kamitani and other Researchers at ATR Computational Neuroscience Labs have developed a system that does rock paper scissors by reading your mind. How does it work? You'll need to be inside an MRI scanner. A computer decodes the MRI output to identify the 'perceptual and subjective contents' of your brain. As you make rock, paper or scissors hand gestures, your brain configuration is used to control a robot hand that duplicates your movements. Obviously, the real goal here is to develop non-invasive methods of controlling prosthetic devices. So far the researchers have achieved 85% accuracy with a 7 second lag time on the current setup. The good part is that it works on anyone without surgery or special training. The bad part is that you need a massive MRI machine"

Robot Gossip: Robot Works on AIDS Vaccine: "A new lab robot called CrystalMation promises to speed up the discovery of new vaccines for HIV and other diseases.
The robot was developed by the RoboDesign division of privately held Rigaku.

Located at Scripps Research Institute, the $2.2 million Crystalmation, can complete in days a task that had previously taken months to perform."
ScienceDaily: Brain's Cannabinoid System 'Mellows' Seizures: "The same brain machinery that responds to the active substance in marijuana provides a central 'on-demand' protection against seizures, researchers have found. They said their discoveries suggest that the 'endocannabinoid' system might constitute a prime target for drugs against seizures of epilepsy and other neurodegenerative diseases"
Beyond the Event Horizon: "Why spend billions of dollars and numerous years to cure just cancer? Why not spend that time on something that will not only cure cancer, but will also cure every other disease, including aging, and death? And what if that same development also ended poverty and starvation? I think the humanitarian value of that development would far exceed any other."

Motion Capture Hardware - Gloves: "CyberGlove� is a low-profile, lightweight glove with flexible sensors which accurately and repeatably measure the position and movement of the fingers and wrist. CyberGlove's award-winning design incorporates the latest high-precision joint-sensing technology. CyberGlove is state-of-the-art in instrumented gloves.
The 18-sensor model features two bend sensors on each finger, four abduction sensors, plus sensors measuring thumb crossover, palm arch, wrist flexion and wrist abduction.
The 22-sensor model adds sensors to measure the flexion of the distal joints on the four fingers."
InformationWeek Gartner Gartner Names Hot Technologies With Greatest Potential Impact August 9, 2006: "Researcher Gartner Inc. on Wednesday identified the technologies it believes will have the greatest impact on businesses over the next 10 years, naming such hot areas as social-network analysis, collective intelligence, location-aware applications and event-driven architectures.

Thursday, August 03, 2006 "Reason is rooted in desire. Reason evolved in order to increase our ability to satisfy our emotional states.

At the heart of every logical and well reasoned human action / thought is an emotion. " Reviews for Tuscan Whole Milk, 1 Gallon, 128 fl oz: Gourmet Food: "Resurrection by Milk, August 3, 2006
Reviewer:D. S. Baker (Manassas, VA USA) - See all my reviews

I had recently 'acquired' the milk through dealings with a less than ligitimate source, but the claims were true. This milk has resurrected the dead, my interest in college football, and David Hasselhoff's career; all with only one gallon!"
