Stephen Wolfram: Computing a theory of everything

Uploaded on Apr 27, 2010

http://www.ted.com Stephen Wolfram, creator of Mathematica, talks about his quest to make all knowledge computational -- able to be searched, processed and manipulated. His new search engine, Wolfram Alpha, has no lesser goal than to model and explain the physics underlying the universe.

What Mars One Needs is Genetically Altered Human Colonists

What Mars One Needs is Genetically Altered Human Colonists | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

What if we could re-engineer humans for the harsh environment of planets like Mars? Believe it or not there are scientists studying our genome to determine if altered humanity is a suitable strategy for colonizing planets other than Earth. And some have even mused about altering humans so that we can better cope with climate change. In her book, Oryx and Crake, Margaret Atwood, spun such a scenario with the creation of a genetically-altered human species designed in a lab to survive a pandemic apocalypse.

A symposium entitled Genetics, Biomedicine, and the Human Experience in Space, was recently held at Harvard Medical School. The premise of the discussion was the role genetics could play in the successful conquest of space by our species. Could genetics alter us to withstand cosmic rays bombardment or long-duration exposure to micro-gravity? Could we alter our muscles and skeletons, change our diurnal circadian rhythm to match that of a different world, make our bodies handle greater extremes of heat and cold, and develop respiratory systems that function in low-oxygen or even the absence of free oxygen environments?

Taking a Closer Look at the Dangers of Wireless Radiation

Taking a Closer Look at the Dangers of Wireless Radiation | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
B

Bigfoot, UFOs and electromagnetic field sickness. What do they all have in common? One thing. They are all topics that really loony people talk about a lot.

Why is this? Why does the idea of a new species living deep in the forest draw in the fruitcake crowds, when scientists discover new species of animals all the time? Why are UFOs considered so much “tin-foil-hat” material, when there are strange military experimental craft and unusual weather phenomenon going on over our heads all the time?

And most importantly (for the purpose of this article), what about the so-called electromagnetic “radiation”? Is there any truth to the weird and wild claims found all around the Web related to wireless fields from your Wi-Fi routers and wireless cellphones causing health problems?

Let’s take a closer look at the latest research to figure out if there’s any truth to the idea that we might need to fear our mobile devices.

One odd result actually came from a 9th grade Danish school, where the students, supervised by their Biology teacher, placed garden cress herb seeds in identical rooms. One with a Wi-Fi router and one without. The results were strange, to say the least. wi fi plants Taking a Closer Look at the Dangers of Wireless Radiation After 12 days, the seeds in the room without a Wi-Fi router grew normally, while those near a router mostly turned brown and died. A first reaction would be to point out that there must have been environmental differences between the two rooms, but the Biology teacher told the media that everything about the experiment was carefully controlled. Both groups of seeds were kept equally watered, and the room temperatures were controlled via thermostat.

3ders.org - EU developing 3D food printer for the elderly, set to finish by 2015 | 3D Printer News & 3D Printing News | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

April 9, 2014

Researchers in Europe are working on a 3D food printer that will be able to create easily digestible food, which not only maintains the shape and taste of the real thing, but can also be fortified with specific nutrients.

More than one in five Europeans will be aged 65 and over by 2025, and the EU is working to keep elderly people healthier for longer. In 2012 the EU launched PERFORMANCE project to develop and validate a holistic, personalized food supply chain for frail elderly in nursing homes. the PERFORMANCE concept will cover the whole supply chain from the food producer to the ready-to eat-meal at consumers place.

Elderly in general require careful consideration of various determinants of their nutritional and health status. In contrast to younger people, the impact of nutrition on their well-being and health status is way higher.

Vint Cerf - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vint Cerf - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

Cerf was born in New Haven, Connecticut, the son of Muriel (née Gray), a housewife, and Vinton Thurston Cerf, an aerospace executive.[14][15] Cerf went to Van Nuys High School along with Jon Postel and Steve Crocker; he wrote the former's obituary. Both were also instrumental in the creation of the Internet. Cerf's first job after obtaining his B.S. degree in Mathematics from Stanford University was at IBM, where he worked for two years as a systems engineer supporting QUIKTRAN.[1] He left IBM to attend graduate school at UCLA where he earned his M.S. degree in 1970 and his PhD degree in 1972.[4][16] During his graduate student years, he studied under Professor Gerald Estrin, worked in Professor Leonard Kleinrock's data packet networking group that connected the first two nodes of the ARPANet,[17] the predecessor[17] to the Internet, and "contributed to a host-to-host protocol" for the ARPANet.[18] While at UCLA, he also met Robert E. (Bob) Kahn, who was working on the ARPANet hardware architecture.[18] After receiving his doctorate, Cerf became an assistant professor at Stanford University from 1972–1976, where he conducted research on packet network interconnection protocols and co-designed the DoD TCP/IP protocol suite with Kahn.[18] Cerf then moved to DARPA in 1976, where he stayed until 1982.
