­Guess who? Japanese scientists launch face recognition-blocking glasses — RT | Tech and the Future of Integration | Scoop.it
Those concerned with online privacy may soon get another weapon to defend it. Two Japanese scientists have designed glasses that confuse face recognition technology without affecting one`s vision.
Skip Stein's insight:

As governments continue to invade our daily lives, privacy and just about everything, there WILL be creative opposition.  This is just one example how individuals can combat the invasion of privacy and individual rights.  There needs to be MORE ways to combat these violations of civil rights, privacy and security.  Come on entrepreneurs, get creating! There is a HUGE market for these personal security tools.  Something for G+, Facebook and so many others.  Cell phone encryption for everyone and so much more!

Watch Obama threaten Social Security and try to create a panic!  If they cut some departments, like Education, FDA, USDA, Dept. of Agriculture and other unnecessary departments to daily operations, we would be fine!  Interestingly, most Americans, business and the rest would NOT' miss them one bit!  But Obama will target the 'panic areas' like Social Security, Medicare/Medicaid and Unemployment to create panic amongst those who's daily lives depend on these programs!

Our bodies get Vitamin D from the sun, but as dermatologist Richard Weller suggests, sunlight may confer another surprising benefit too. New research by his team shows that nitric oxide, a chemical transmitter stored in huge reserves in the skin, can be released by UV light, to great benefit for blood pressure and the cardiovascular system. What does it mean? Well, it might begin to explain why Scots get sick more than Australians ...

Einstein’s Brain

Einstein’s Brain | Tech and the Future of Integration | Scoop.it

Scientists have been studying Albert Einstein's dead brain for clues as to his genius. Einstein’s brain is of unexceptional size and its combination of a relatively wide and forward-projecting right frontal lobe with a relatively wide and posteriorly protruding left occipital lobe is the most prevalent pattern seen in right-handed adult males. Scientests have identified the sulci that delimit expansions of cortex (gyri or convolutions) on the external surfaces of all of the lobes of the brain and on the medial surfaces of both hemispheres. The morphology in some parts of Einstein’s cerebral cortex is highly unusual compared with control human brains for which sulcal patterns have been thoroughly described. To the extent possible, the blocks of brain from particularly interesting areas are identified on the ‘roadmap’ that was prepared when Einstein’s brain was sectioned, as a guide for researchers who may wish to explore the histological correlates of Einstein’s gross cortical morphology.


Contrary to earlier reports, newly available photographs reveal that Einstein’s brain is not spherical in shape. The surface area of Einstein’s inferior parietal lobule is larger on the left than the right side, whereas that of his superior parietal lobule appears markedly larger in the right hemisphere. The photographs also suggest that the primary somatosensory and motor cortices representing the face and tongue are differentially expanded in the left hemisphere, that the posterior ascending limb of the Sylvian fissure is separate from (rather than confluent with) the postcentral inferior sulcus, and that parietal opercula are present. Nevertheless, these findings are concordant with the earlier suggestion that unusual morphology in Einstein’s parietal lobes may have provided neurological substrates for his visuospatial and mathematical abilities.


These results also suggest that Einstein had relatively expanded prefrontal cortices, which may have provided underpinnings for some of his extraordinary cognitive abilities, including his product- ive use of thought experiments. From an evolutionary perspective, the specific parts of Einstein’s prefrontal cortex that appear to be differentially expanded are of interest because recent findings indicate that these same areas increased differentially in size and became neurologically reorganized at microanatomical levels during hominin evolution in association with the emergence of higher cog- nitive abilities. It would be interesting therefore to investigate the histological correlates of these (as well as parietal) regions of Einstein’s brain from the newly available slides. Future research on comparative primate neuroanatomy, paleoneurology and functional neuroanatomy will hopefully provide insight about some of the unusually convoluted parts of Einstein’s brain.

Review:

Review: | Tech and the Future of Integration | Scoop.it
Review: "A Stitch in Time" and "Fast Times" ('Continuum' Premiere)

The first few minutes of Continuum, in which a dignified old man (Tony Amendola, known to many of us as Gepetto and, reaching further back, Master Bra'tac) righteously speechifies about his master-stroke against the massive, evil corporations that rule the future in 2077, might mislead the unwary into fearing that Syfy's latest Canadian import is a self-conscious attack on the excesses of capitalism, and that the science-fiction is liable to be weighed down, or waylaid, by earnest allegory as is sometimes the case in (say) the otherwise excellent Charlie Jade.

Skip Stein's insight:

This is one of the best thought out series in recent memory.  The fiction is almost too close to a possible 'truth' and may make you uncomfortable.  For the corporate conspiracy lovers this is a Do NOT Miss opportunity!

RAND PAUL: 'Having a monarch is what we fought the American Revolution over'...

RAND PAUL: 'Having a monarch is what we fought the American Revolution over'... | Tech and the Future of Integration | Scoop.it
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) gave an interview to the Christian Broadcasting Network
in which he rather strongly denounced President Obama’s threats to
impose gun control through executive orders. ”I’m against having a
king,” said the Senator.
Skip Stein's insight:

People think this is a silly statement, but if you examine the FACTS and the substance of all the Executive Orders Obama has created he thinks he is king.  Congress is so intimidated, wimpy and frankly ignoring the Constitution and their SWORN duty to UPHOLD it's tenants, Obama might as well be king/dictator.  It is the DUTY of Congress to restrain the Presidency for just this sort of over exercise of power.  All congress has to do to STOP Obama's increasing dictatorial actions is to DE-FUND the supporting agencies and diss-allow any funding of these insanely stupid and unconstitutional acts!

This is INSANITY!  Allowing a patent on DATA transformation?  That is not an invention, it is a data processing technique.  It just provides more truth to the existing data that the Government is totally CLUELESS and insanely STUPID when it comes to any rational action.  It is crazy, insane and dangerous to even consider this.  Of course these same idiots allowed Monsanto to patent LIFE itself!  Where does it end!  Since GMO food and the genetic modifications may indeed imbed into your OWN personal genome, does this mean Monsanto OWNS YOU TOO? Insanity abounds in Washington!
