This is not a joke or a hoax. I participate in this project and if you can, you should too. If you watched "Close Encounter of the Third Kind," you already know about SETI ... the search for extra-terrestial intelligence. They process massive amounts of data and are always looking for additional computers to help process the overwhelming amount of information. They are non-intrusive and you can feel that you are a part of something exciting. You never know: we might actually find ET and you could be a part of it.
Gene meddling isn't immune to awesomeness. Sometimes, just sometimes, what comes out from the test tube is a lot less Cthulhu and more like your new, kickass pet.
I feel like I should somehow disapprove of this, but in fact, I think some of these "created" pets are well .... awesome. Really! Not that I'd own a cat as big as a dog. I have owned many cats as big as cats and the amount of destruction they can wreak on your home while purring and making love eyes is indescribable. It makes some of our incorrigibly destructrive dogs look like teddy bears. When a cat takes it into his head and/or paws to redesign your interior ... well ... Hope you like shredded wheat because you'll be living in a house that looks like it's made of it.
Secretary of Education Arne Duncan says every school should replace textbooks with tablets or e-reader devices. What does this mean for your students' learning?
I don't see the server issue since electronic books are stored in the device and do not require internet access except for the initial download.
My granddaughter carries a load of books that weighs almost as much as she does. It has caused damage to her back that's probably permanent. And she's by no means the only one.
I don't actually think any of the arguments against digital textbooks are valid.
The reason schools aren't using digital books is because publishers believe they won't make as much money selling them and therefore don't make them available. For once, wouldn't it be be nice if the welfare of our kids was more important than how much money the publishers make?
There's a higher profit margin on e-books than hard copy because e-books are cheap to produce, but textbooks don't sell in the enormous quantity. Nonetheless, to keep breaking our kids' backs is wrong.
Pointy shoes hurt your feet When I was a young woman, I refused to wear pointy shoes. They hurt my feet. It took some doing, but I found non-pointy shoes from Fred Braun, Bass and Keds. I wore com...
When did we get so dumb? Why do we apparently suffer fools who are completely clueless, yet are giving us advice? Worse yet, at least some of us are listening. We are suffering and epidemic wave of stupidity. I don't know about you, but it's scaring the bejeezus out of me!
The work of many minds, the U. S. Constitution stands as a model of cooperative statesmanship and the art of compromise.
The US Government maintains a number of sites that have wonderful resources for anyone who really would like to now what this nation is about. If you have never read the constitution ... the whole thing, you should. People are always quoting pieces of it out of context, but it is so much more -- and so much better -- than that.
The Declaration of Independencem the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights are the three foundation documents of our nation and every citizen should be at the very least throroughly acquainted with them.
Liam Neeson has had an indisputably amazing year. Though the quality of the actor’s movies remains up for debate (We’re looking at you, Battleship. Well,...
Jay Leno commented last night that for all divorced guys, this has to be a perfect movie. "Ex-wife abducted? Yeah! I'll watch that!" I thought the first one was a bit much, but I enjoyed it anyway because Liam Neeson is always fun to watch. However, I have to say that given this family's prior experiences, wouldn't you think they'd just avoid traveling to places where their know deadly enemies hang out? I mean ... I'm no chicken, but I also don't stand on the railroad tracks and dare the train to hit me.
Obviously this does not bother most viewerrs and I'm sure we'll catch it when it comes to cable, but not going out of my way to see it on The Big Screen.
Sandy, the hurricane that appears set to pummel the East Coast, promises a historic potential for damage and a terrifying look at what may be in store for us—ever more frequent assaults of not-so-natural origin.
One of the more ridiculous things I hear from some of my Christian friends on a reasonably consistent basis is that they are being persecuted for their...
Persecution doesn't mean that you can't have it your way all the the time. It doesn't mean that other people don't agree with you. Time for self-declared Christian groups to recognize they od not own the Truth, not even according to other Christians, much less by non-Christians.
That such are issues in America in 2012 is appalling and demonstrates just how far we have fallen from where we began.
Is anyone even a little bit surprised that white voters want a white President? Race is the subject that no one talks about, but it is the single biggest issue in this election. People are not voting their convictions or their self interest. They are voting their prejudices and hatreds and that's a very bad thing for this country and our future.
Believe it or not, acorns are quite a controversial subject around here. Everyone believes absolutely that huge acorns predict a heavy winter. Of coure, since most of our winters are pretty bad, you have a good chance of being right regardless, but this is an article from the Audubon society in which they take on the divisive issue or the season: What does those huge acorns really mean?
Summary: PC shipments are expected to decline for the first time in over a decade. Is it the economy, or a post-PC evolution?
This is the kind of article that makes me seriously wonder if the people who write these articles live on the same planet I do. Do they never consider the possibility that most of us actually have enough computers, so whatever we are buying, it will be something else that we don't already own? Are they seriously that stupid and out of touch? It makes you wonder. It makes ME wonder.
I don't usually recommend products. but this one has really improved the quality of my life. I can actually read my keyboard, even in dim light. It's comfortable to type on. The keys ae full size and a bit springy, which took a bit of getting used to, but it's a huge improvement over the standard Dell keyboard I got with the computer. Woth it ... and it wasn't all that expensive, either!
