US Government Calls For Censorship on Man-Made Flu

Posted: December 21st, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Applied Science, Chemically Engineered, Science News | Tags: , , , , , , | Comments Off on US Government Calls For Censorship on Man-Made Flu

New Deadly Man-made Flu VirusThe journals Science and Nature are as we type and you read, mulling over whether to publish details of a man-made mutant flu virus with the potential to kill millions.

A US government science advisory committee has urged key details be withheld so people seeking to do widespread harm would not be able to replicate the virus.

The National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB) reviewed two scientific papers relating to the findings and recommended the journals considering them “make changes in the manuscripts”, a statement said. Read the full article »»»»


IBM Predicts Mind Reading Machines: Look Into The Future With IBM’s 5-in-5 Tech Predictions

IBM Five-In-Five

Century-old technology behemoth IBM has done some pretty wild things in it’s time. They’ve dragged us from Keypunch through Typesetting and on to Supercomputing technology. So when the behemoth makes a prediction, the world listens, even when it’s outlandish. IBM has predicted a near future in which machines read minds and recognise who they’re dealing with. Each year since 2006, IBM has released Five-In-Five, a list of 5 predictions for the future of tech, 5 innovations that will have a profound effect in the next 5 years. The latest IBM Five-in-Five predictions were based on societal trends and research which the New York State-based company expected to begin bearing fruit by the year 2017.

“From Houdini to Skywalker to X-Men, mind reading has merely been wishful thinking for science fiction fans for decades, but their wish may soon come true,” IBM said in its annual assessment of innovations on the horizon. Read the full article »»»»


Higgs Boson: ‘The God Particle’ Nearly, But Not Quite!?

Simulation - Higgs Event

Scientists at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research – CERN –  say they have found signs of – although not yet conclusively discovered – the Higgs boson, an elementary particle which is the missing link in the Standard Model of physics.

The famed particle is the missing link in current theories of physics, used to explain how everything gains its mass. Rumors have been crashing about the scientific community for weeks on these findings.

Fabiola Gianotti, the scientist in charge of the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, said the signal was centred at around 126 – GeV – Giga Electron Volts.

“I think it would be extremely kind of the Higgs boson to be here,” Gianotti told a seminar to discuss the findings :: Read the full article »»»»


Climate Change: Humans Pumped Out 10 Billion Tonnes of Carbon Emissions in 2010

Posted: December 5th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Climate Change, Science, Science News, Science of Green | Tags: , , , , | Comments Off on Climate Change: Humans Pumped Out 10 Billion Tonnes of Carbon Emissions in 2010

Cankler-10-Billion-Tonnes-of-Carbon-EmissionsNew research has found global carbon emissions surged by a record amount in 2010 after falling during the international financial crisis.

The Global Carbon Project published its yearly analysis of carbon dioxide emissions in the journal Nature Climate Change today.

The report found that global carbon dioxide emissions increased by a record 5.9 per cent in 2010. The report says the overall atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide is now at its highest level in 800,000 years.

At current rates, including the increase in emissions that has been occurring over the last few years and continuing and even accelerating this year, we have about 35 to 40 years to go, before we hit that limit of a total of 1 trillion tonnesRead the full article »»»»


Sexually Transmitted Infections Epidemic: Is Sex Education the Answer?

A community based sexual health group has raised the alarm about the level of risky sexual behaviour among young people, saying ignorance on the subject could make young Australians vulnerable to HIV/AIDS. Alischa Ross, the founder of Youth Empowerment Against HIV AIDS – YEAH – says her group sends volunteers into schools and public events such as music festivals to educate young people about safe sex. There has been a 20 per cent increase in the rate of infection among young people in the last three years, with chlamydia and gonorrhoea among the biggest culprits. Ms Ross says the trend points to more risky behaviour and widespread complacency. Ross says although HIV is not a huge problem in Australia, it will become more of an issue in the near future, looking at the trends of HIV and what we’ve seen happen worldwide for the last 30 years, is that where there are high incidents of Sexually Transmitted Infections, HIV follows D★D  READ MORE
