I doubt it will stop the NSA, but here ya go...


Many encryption services and software can hide the contents of the letter, they still let others see an email’s metadata, the bits of information surrounding the email such as sender, recipient, timestamp and subject message. Metadata are what allows email to be passed along the Internet to a final destination, but could reveal sensitive information such as the name of medical clinics, businesses or political parties with which one is in touch.

A new service called ShazzleMail eliminates metadata by delivering the email directly from your computer or smartphone to the recipient. It calls itself “the first privacy protective and surveillance-resistant secure email service.”

Well, this is interesting...
Consciousness on-off switch discovered deep in brain?

Scientists have been probing individual regions of the brain for over a century, exploring their function by zapping them with electricity and temporarily putting them out of action. Despite this, they have never been able to turn off consciousness, until now.

Although only tested in one person, the discovery suggests that a single area – the claustrum – might be integral to combining disparate brain activity into a seamless package of thoughts, sensations and emotions. It takes us a step closer to answering a problem that has confounded scientists and philosophers for millennia – namely how our conscious awareness arises.

Blame the Brits!
The word "soccer" is a British invention that British people stopped using only about 30 years ago, according to a new paper by University of Michigan professor Stefan Szymanski.

In the early 1800s, a bunch of British universities took "football" — a medieval game — and started playing their own versions of it, all under different rules. To standardize things across the country, these games were categorized under different organizations with different names.

One variant of the game you played with your hands became "rugby football." Another variant came to be known as "association football" after the Football Association formed to promote the game in 1863, 15 years after the rules were made at Cambridge.

"Rugby football" became "rugger" for short. "Association football"bec... more »

Dinosaurs weren't cold blooded, but they weren't warm blooded either.

Dinosaur growth rates were most like those of animals called mesotherms that include mako sharks, tuna and leatherback turtles. Such animals can burn energy to generate heat, but don't maintain their bodies at a set temperature.

Grady said that the fact that there are so few mesotherms today and that they live mainly in the ocean, where there are few warm-blooded animals, may say something about evolution and competition.

"If you look today, mammals and birds are by far the dominant animals on land," he said.

If mesothermic animals like dinosaurs lived among them, they would have to compete.

"And I think," Grady said, "they would probably lose."

Google’s self-driving car
Could you let yourself be driven by a computer?

Google’s self-driving car is still at least five years away from commercialization, here is what it can and can't do now.

Can do
Avoid creaming cyclists: In the event a cyclist actually decides to warn traffic before he turns, the car notices. Thanks to laser imaging, the car recognizes the hand waving and will expect the cyclist to move over.
Be aggressive: It turns out self-driving cars tend to be too polite. Google noticed that at four-way stops, the car stayed behind the stop line, waiting for its turn. Naturally, human drivers, seeing it just sitting there, took advantage and crossed ahead of it. So the team rejiggered the car to slowly inch forward at stop signs, signaling to other drivers that it wants its turn.
Break the law: For city driving,Goo... more »

How a team of students beat the casinos.
Cool story but I'd be worried Joe Pesci would show up.

How counting cards works.
In blackjack, or 21, high cards favour the gambler, low cards the casino. So a card counter keeps a running tally in their head, adding 1 for low cards and subtracting 1 for high cards. When their tally increases (meaning more high cards than low ones are left in the deck) they know it's time to start placing higher bets.

Cool mirage above iceberg off the coast of Newfoundland.
Mirage effect due to marine layer temperature inversion.

They are dependent on the existence of large temperature differences (increases) above the surface ... with cold water near the surface chilling the surface air, and much warmer air above, resulting in a strong inversion.

Cold air near the surface is more dense than the warmer air above, and the change in densities create a lens-like effect in the atmosphere which produces the mirage.

Physicists from the FOM Foundation and the University of Amsterdam have discovered that the ancient Egyptians used a clever trick to make it easier to transport heavy pyramid stones by sledge. The Egyptians moistened the sand over which the sledge moved. By using the right quantity of water they could halve the number of workers needed.

A long-sought fugitive has been caught at the world's largest particle accelerator. Experiments at the Large Hadron Collider confirm that a provocative particle called Z(4430) actually exists – and it may be the strongest evidence yet for a new form of matter called a tetraquark.

Quarks are subatomic particles that are the fundamental building blocks of matter. They are known to exist either in groups of two, forming short-lived mesons, or in threes, forming the protons and neutrons that make up atomic nuclei. Researchers have suspected for decades that quarks might also bind together in quartets, forming tetraquarksMovie Camera, but they have not been able to do the complicated quantum calculations necessary to test the idea.

"Our computers aren't yet big enough to solve the theory from first principles," says Thomas Cohen at the University of Maryland inC... more »

Exploding stars prove Newton's law of gravity unchanged over cosmic time. It has been previously suggested that Newton's gravitational constant (or G) could have been slowly changing over the 13.8 billion years since the Big Bang. Australian researchers have now analyzed the light given off by 580 supernova explosions in the nearby and far Universe and have shown that the strength of gravity has not changed.

Incredible discovery?

Writing in the journal Nature, scientists on Wednesday said they had found an elusive mineral pointing to the existence of a vast reservoir deep in Earth's mantle, 400-600 kilometres (250-375 miles) beneath our feet.

It may hold as much water as all the planet's oceans combined, they believe.

Europa is one of the solar system’s most mysterious and badass moons. Beneath its icy crust, scientists think there is a vast ocean with more water in it than exists on all of Earth. Recently, scientists found evidence that a little bit of that water may be be erupting from geysers near the moon’s south pole, sending plumes 200 kilometers into the air. Scientists would love nothing more than to send a spacecraft flying through these jets in order to sample their composition.

Radioactive element time:
Neptunium. You probably have some in your home.
Neptunium-237 is a breakdown product of americium 241 which is found in many smoke detectors. Check yours out by opening it up as if to change the battery and you should see the radioactive warning sign.
The photo is of the americium source from a smoke detector on my Geiger counter. Since I took this picture in 2006 the 1 microcurie of americium (around 0.28 microgram) has had 1.2% decay resulting in 3.3 ng production of neptunium.
The Geiger count should have dropped from 80,180 to 79,157 CPM.
americium half life is 432.2 years and it decays into neptunium 237 with half life 2.14 million years.
Be careful, about 60kg is critically fissionable ie a bomb.

Incredibly creepy!
This parasitic marvel enslaves cockroaches by stinging their brains in ridiculously precise spots and injecting mind-controlling venom. The wasp then leads its zombified roach to a chamber, where it lays a single egg on its perfectly relaxed host and seals it inside with pebbles. Here the larva bores into the cockroach and feeds off its organs before killing it and emerging from its corpse into the light of day.

Luge vs Skeleton
Dumb and dumber.

Why is luge faster than skeleton? Two main reasons. First, it has to do with the materials of the respective runners, or the metallic bars attached to the underside of the sled. Skeleton racers ride downhill atop a set of tubular steel runners, which sort of look like they were yanked off of a stainless steel towel rack. The dullness of these runners helps to limit a skeleton racer’s speed. A luge sled, by contrast, rests atop a pair of razor-sharp steel blades that cut into the ice like a pair of skates. The sharp edges of the luge runners help make the luge sleds faster than their skeleton counterparts.

Another reason why luge is faster than skeleton? Luge racers assume a much more aerodynamic position than skeleton racers. In skeleton, you lie face-first on the sled and lead with your helmet. In case you haven’tsee... more »
