Dr Rubbia says a tonne of the silvery metal – named after the Norse god of thunder, who also gave us Thor’s day or Thursday - produces as much energy as 200 tonnes of uranium, or 3,500,000 tonnes of coal. A mere fistful would light London for a week.

Eternal Fascinations with the End: Why We're... →
The impulse is partially a consequence of our pattern-seeking nature—we are, after all, creatures of the savanna, programmed to uncover trends in the natural world. It is in our nature to weave a simple story from a complex set of data points. (In recent years this tendency has been amplified by news media that are very good at turning complex events into cartoon crises.) The desire to treat...

A would-be saboteur arrested today at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland made the bizarre claim that he was from the future. Eloi Cole, a strangely dressed young man, said that he had travelled back in time to prevent the LHC from destroying the world.

My Name is Abortifacient
Death Rave Festival (http://gameboyaustralia.com/2010/08/death-rave-festival.html) …. it was sweet…. some guy whose name was Abortifacient played there, it was his birthday. I’ve got proof. Have to say I was pretty happy about the whole she-bang. I’ve been in Sydney for a number of months now, and been looking for somewhere cool to hangout, but, generally speaking,...

It is clear that while the fastest-growing cities of the world have expanded in size, number and wealth, most of those in the developing world have become home to large numbers of people living on very few resources. In Asia, Africa and Latin America, high rates of urbanisation have been accompanied by high levels of poverty and inequality, creating serious challenges for good governance and...

Housing prices prediction
Housing prices will plummet 40% by the end of this financial year. You heard it here first. But then I’m not Nostradamus unfortunately…. not that he was much better :)

The work paves the way for a future of naturally grown joints that would last longer than currently used artificial joints. The work was carried out by Professor Jeremy J Mao, and his team at Columbia University Medical...
Shared Dislike Musing
I wonder why people like complaining in preference to ermmmm what’s a good word…. Confirming perhaps? Get two people in a room and they seem to tend to bond over what they don’t like than what they do.. that’s just an anecdotal hunch, but I wonder what it is about shared dislikes that may be more powerful than shared likes?
The calender appears.
You are correct, Google is taking over the world. Not arguing with you at all. But they are taking over the world in a good way… making free handy indispensible things…. like a calendar that attaches to your email and gets out of bed at 3am to wake you up so you can get to meetings. You used to have to pay for calendars… now they are free intelligent (ish) calendars. I like...
