Canna Cola: Marijuana sodas to go on sale in US

A US firm has announced plans to launch an odd range of marijuana-spiked soft drinks guaranteed to give you a buzz.Makers says the drinks, which include a cola, a Dr Pepper–like, a lemonade and a orange flavoured one, will go on sale in February for $10 to $15 each.
Because they contain 35 to 65 milligrams of THC - the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis - they will only be available in medical-marijuana dispensaries.
The drinks are said to only have a "mild marijuana taste"… and go great with a special sort of chocolate brownie.. (see the video)

Beer to be classified as alcohol for first time in Russia..

Beer is to be legally classified as an alcoholic drink in Russia for the first time as the Kremlin forges ahead with the toughest anti-alcohol campaign since the fall of the Soviet Union. 
The beverage is technically classified as a foodstuff for now, an anomaly that has allowed producers to avoid a sweeping new crackdown on alcohol advertising and night-time sales.
But a new Kremlin-backed bill that passed its first reading in the lower house of the Russian parliament on Tuesday will abolish beer's special status, dragging Russian alcohol regulation into the 21st century.
"Normalising the beer production market and classifying it as alcohol is totally the right thing to do and will boost the health of our population," Yevgeny Bryun, the ministry of health's chief specialist on alcohol and drug abuse, said.
"We have been talking about and have wanted such a measure for ages. I take my hat off to the parliament."

Low-cost filter to provide safe water in emergency

McGill researchers have come up with a new and inexpensive way of filtering water using silver nanoparticles.
Disasters such as floods, tsunamis, and earthquakes often result in the spread of diseases like gastroenteritis, giardiasis and even cholera because of an immediate shortage of clean drinking water.
Now, researchers at McGill University have taken a key step towards making a cheap, portable, paper-based filter coated with silver nanoparticles to be used in these emergency settings.
"Silver has been used to clean water for a very long time. The Greeks and Romans kept their water in silver jugs," said Prof. Derek Gray, from McGill's Department of Chemistry.
But though silver is used to get rid of bacteria in a variety of settings, from bandages to antibacterial socks, no one has used it systematically to clean water before.

Don’t Bring Your Fake Smile To Work

Faking a smile to keep customers—and the boss—happy can lower productivity and put employees in a bad mood—particularly women.
Want to keep your boss happy? Smile at your customers. Want to keep yourself happy and productive? Smile like you mean it.
“Employers may think that simply getting their employees to smile is good for the organization, but that’s not necessarily the case,” says Brent Scott, assistant professor of management at Michigan State University. “Smiling for the sake of smiling can lead to emotional exhaustion and withdrawal, and that’s bad for the organization.”
Scott and colleagues found that while fake smiling can cause some employees to..

The World's Smallest Computer Unveiled

Scientists have created the world's smallest computer system to help treat glaucoma patients.
At just one square millimetre in size, the tiny device is a pressure monitor that is implanted in a person's eye.
It may be small but it packs a hefty punch, containing an ultra low-power microprocessor, a pressure sensor, memory, a thin film battery, a solar cell and a wireless radio with an antenna that can transmit data to an external reader device.
Developed by researchers at the University of Michigan, the unnamed unit - which is expected to be commercially available in several years - is already being touted as the future of the computing industry.

Effort Is Launched To Send Over 1500 Varietes of Peruvian Potatoes To The Global Seed Vault

If nuclear radiation wipes out every crop in the ground, we will at least have lots of potato varieties to plant. Potato preservationists launched an effort this week to send over 1,500 varieties of Peruvian potatoes to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault (aka the Doomsday Vault), an underground seed bank on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen.
Potatoes are regarded as the world's most important non-cereal crop, and have been eaten for about 8,000 years.
Opened in 2008, the seed bank contains more than 400,000 seed samples, including lettuce, eggplant, potato, barley, corn, rice, wheat, and even chili peppers. But up until now, potatoes from Peru--the birthplace of the potato--have been left out.

11-year-old boy arrested in Colorado over stick-figure drawing... made in school

An 11-year-old boy was arrested, fingerprinted and handcuffed by police in Colorado all because of a stick-figure drawing he made in class.
Now his parents say they are out thousands of dollars as a result of the arrest, which took place in October and led to the boy being put on probation.
"It was heart wrenching to see my... 11-year-old son walk out my front door in handcuffs," said the child's mother in a report Monday on Fox 31 News in Denver.
The boy, identified as "Tim" because the family did not want their names used, suffers from Attention Deficit Disorder and..

Ο Σόμπολος...και τα Ελληνικά ΜΜΕ

Εδώ ο κόσμος χάνεται και οι δημοσιογράφοι, απεργούνε! Για πολλοστή φορά, το συνδικαλιστικό όργανο αποφασίζει να απεργήσουν την ώρα που δεκάδες κλάδοι στέλουν ένα ηχηρό μήνυμα αποδοκιμασίας στην κυβέρνηση αλλά και σε ολόκληρο το πολιτικό σύστημα.
Ο Σόμπολος εχει αναγάγει το ψέμα σε επιστήμη. Στο τέλος κάθε απεργίας λέει στους δικούς του ότι στην επόμενη πανελλαδική απεργία η Ένωση Συντακτών δεν θα απεργήσει την ίδια ημέρα αλλά την επόμενη ώστε να υπάρχει η δυνατότητα να καλύψουν... τα ΜΜΕ τις κινητοποιήσεις και τα συλλαλητήρια. Όλα αυτά στα λόγια. Γιατί όποτε έρχεται το θέμα στο Δ.Σ. της ΕΣΗΕΑ ο Σόμπολος πάντα; συμφωνεί να κηρύξουν απεργία την ίδια ημέρα με την ΓΣΕΕ και την ΑΔΕΔΥ.

Scientists: Sun's approaching 'Grand Cooling" assures new Ice Age

NASA and the ESA agree, and so does the Russian space agency, Roscosmos—the sun is headed for a Grand Solar Minimum and a Grand Cooling will commence.
The aptly named Grand Cooling is exactly what it implies: the sun is going to cool. That cooling will also cool off the Earth. It will last from 30 to 50 years.
What exactly does global cooling mean? Well for one, Al Gore was sure wrong! The Earth isn't going to warm, it's going to get colder. Much colder. So cold a little or full-blown Ice Age will ensue. As a matter of fact, some scientists claim we're already in the early stages of an Ice Age.

Nazi 3D Films From 1936 Discovered

James Cameron and his team of minions may have produced the high watermark for 3D technology in the 21st century, but it seems the Nazis got there first. The Australian film-maker Philippe Mora says he has discovered two 30-minute 3D films shot by propagandists for the Third Reich in 1936, a full 16 years before the format first became briefly popular in the US.
The first of the films, titled So Real You Can Touch It, features shots of sizzling stereoscopic bratwursts on a barbecue while the second, named Six Girls Roll Into Weekend, features actors Mora believes were probably stars from Germany's top wartime studio, Universum Film.
"The quality of the films is fantastic," Mora told

Two Libyan Fighter Pilots Defect, Fly To Malta

Two Libyan Air Force fighter pilots defected on Monday and flew their jets to Malta where they told authorities they had been ordered to bomb protesters, Maltese government officials said. They said the two pilots, both colonels, took off from a base near Tripoli. One of them has requested political asylum.
The pilots are being questioned by the Maltese police.
The two said they decided to fly to Malta after being ordered to bomb anti-government protesters in Libya's second largest city of Benghazi, the sources said.

The Mystery Of The Giant Planet Hidden In Our Solar System

There's a giant planet right here, hiding in our Solar System. One that nobody has ever seen, even while it is four times larger than Jupiter and has rings and moons orbiting it. At least, that's what two astrophysicists say.
The name of the planet is Tyche. The scientists are John Matese and Daniel Whitmire, from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. According to them, this colossus is hiding in the Oort cloud --the asteroid beehive that forms the outer shell of our home system, one light-year in radius. They claim that data already captured by NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer proves its existence. It only needs to be analyzed... over the next two years.
Matese and Whitmire are convinced that Tyche is very real now, however..

Disappearance of Billions of Bees Could Mean us Losing a Third of The Food We Eat

Just four years. That’s how long Albert Einstein reportedly said the human race would last in a world without bees. For the master of relativity, the equation was relatively simple: no more bees = no more people. And while there is debate over whether the great physicist made the claim, no one disputes that we would be in serious trouble were bees to disappear.
I had no idea then that these extraordinarily productive creatures, whose very name is a byword for busyness, whose hives are synonymous with ‘industry’, do far more than just make honey. In fact, they are responsible, via pollination, for one third of the food we eat.
Bees are vital to the success of about 90 crops worldwide. Most fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds are dependent on bees, as are crops used as cattle and pig feed. And if we can’t feed cows, we can say farewell to dairy produce. Nor is it only the food we eat that is inextricably linked to bees. The cotton plant that provides so much of what we wear also relies on bee pollination.

A third of Russians think Sun orbits Earth?

Does the sun revolve around the earth? One in every three Russians thinks so, a spokeswoman for state pollster VsTIOM said Friday. In a survey released this week, 32 percent of Russians believed Earth was the center of the solar system; 55 percent said that all radioactivity is human-made; and 29 percent said that the first humans lived when dinosaurs still roamed the Earth.
The study found that women were more likely than men to believe the scientific fallacies.
"It's really quite amazing," spokeswoman Olga Kamenchuk said of the survey, which polled 1,600 people across Russia's regions in January, with a 3.4 percent margin of error.

Why infertility will stop humans colonising space

Renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking once remarked that humankind would need to colonise space within the next century if it was to survive as a species.
"It will be difficult enough to avoid disaster in the next 100 years, let alone the next thousand or million," he said somewhat pessimistically last year. "Our only chance of long-term survival is not to remain inward-looking on planet Earth, but to spread out into space."
The prospect of long-term space travel has led scientists to consider, increasingly seriously, the following conundrum: if travelling to a new home might take thousands of years, would humans be able to successfully procreate along the way? The early indications from Nasa are not encouraging. Space, it seems, is simply not a good place to have sex.

From Italy, Spinal Implants Shaped Like Pasta

"The bucatini project" restored the ability to walk in paraplegic rats. Could humans be next? 

To a hammer, as the saying goes, everything looks like a nail. And to certain Italian biomedical researchers, if you'll allow some liberties while we extend the analogy, the key to curing paraplegia is, well, spaghetti.
It is there that researchers took rats with spinal cord injuries that compelled the rats to drag the tail end of their bodies around, and implanted devices in the shape of a hollow spaghetti called bucatini. In untreated rats, fluid-filled cysts impede the repair spinal damage. The idea is that by installing the bucatini-like implants, you would create a conduit that helps encourage new axons to form. "These tubes provide the reference points for the cells, and tissue starts to build up," Angelo Vescovi of the University of Milan-Bicocca told New Scientist.

Massive solar flare to hit Earth

Time lapse image of the solar flare as seen by Nasa's Solar Dynamics Observatory
Scientists around the world will be watching closely as three eruptions from the Sun reach the Earth over Thursday and Friday.
These "coronal mass ejections" will slam into the Earth's magnetic shield.
The waves of charged solar particles are the result of three solar flares directed at Earth in recent days, including the most powerful since 2006.
The biggest flares can disrupt technology, including power grids, communications systems and satellites.
The northern lights (Aurora Borealis) may also be visible further south than is normally the case - including from northern parts of the UK.
"Our current view is that the effect of the solar flare is likely to reach Earth later today (Thursday GMT), possibly tomorrow morning," said Alan Thomson, head of geomagnetism at the British Geological Survey (BGS).

Second Sun May Appear At Any Moment

Betelgeuse is the second largest star in the constellation Orion and is about 640 light-years away. Scientists say this star, which is 100,000 times brighter than our sun, will explode and could give us a temporary secondary sun.
What is an extraordinary scientific event in the universe has been turned into an apocalyptic, end of the world, 2012 doomsday scenario. The bright red supergiant star, Betelgeuse, is massive enough that it could end its life as a supernova and give planet Earth a secondary sun, but it will not be the end of the world.

Hundreds of Herbal Products to Be Outlawed Across EU

The global effort to outlaw herbs, vitamins and supplements is well under way, and in just four months, hundreds of herbal products will be criminalized in the UK and across the EU.

It's called the Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive (THMPD), Directive 2004/24/EC.

Not Again! Icelandic Volcano Set To Erupt, Warn Scientists

Scientists in Iceland are warning that another volcano on the island looks set to erupt, threatening to spew-out a blanket of dust that would dwarf last year's eruption.
Bardarbunga is in a more central position north east from Eyjafjallajokull. The last recorded eruption of Bárdarbunga was in 1910.
Geologists detected the high risk of a new eruption after noticing an increased swarm of earthquakes around the island's second largest volcano Bárdarbunga.
Pall Einarsson, a professor of geophysics at the University of Iceland, says the area around Bárdarbunga is showing signs of increased activity, which provides 'good reason to worry'.

Οι Έλληνες είναι μια μοναδική περίπτωση ανάμεσα στους λαούς. Ως λαός μοιάζουν με ένα φυσικό φαινόμενο, το οποίο έχει φάσεις ύφεσης και έξαρσης. Ένα φαινόμενο, που μοιάζει με τη φωτιά. Με τη φωτιά, που είναι απόλυτα ελεγχόμενη μέσα σε ένα λυχνάρι και απόλυτα ανεξέλεγκτη, όταν αρχίζει και καίει τα πάντα στο διάβα της. Αυτό το φαινόμενο, αν δεν ελεγχθεί από το σύστημα εξουσίας εγκαίρως, μπορεί να το καταστρέψει ολοσχερώς.
Mιλάμε για την ιστορική πορεία του φαινομένου μέχρι τις ημέρες μας. Δεν μιλάμε μόνον για τους αρχαίους Έλληνες, τους οποίους οι υπόλοιποι λαοί τους γνωρίζουν. Μιλάμε και για τους σύγχρονους Έλληνες. Μιλάμε και για την "άγνωστη" ιστορία των σύγχρονων Ελλήνων. Μιλάμε για μια ιστορία "ολέθρου" για τις σύγχρονες αυτοκρατορίες. Για μια ιστορία, που με μεγάλη προσοχή προσπαθούν οι σημερινοί ισχυροί να κρύψουν, γιατί δεν τους συμφέρουν οι αποκαλύψεις. Δεν τους συμφέρουν τα "κακά" πρότυπα. Έλληνες. Οι φονείς των αυτοκρατοριών

Back To Normal, At Last! Mubarak Steps Down After 30 Years

Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, has resigned from his post, handing over power to the armed forces.
Omar Suleiman, the vice-president, announced in a televised address on Friday that the president was "waiving" his office, and had handed over authority to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces.
Suleiman's short statement was received with a roar of approval and by celebratory chanting and flag-waving from a crowd of hundreds of thousands in Cairo's Tahrir Square, as well as by other pro-democracy campaigners who attending protests across the country.
The top figure in Egypt's new regime is now Mohammed Hussein Tantawi, the country's defence minister.
After the announcement, he drove past Mubarak's former palace, where crowds cheered him. He stopped briefly to thank and hail the pro-democracy campaigners before driving in.
In its third statement to the nation since Thursday, the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces said it was examining the situation "in order to materialise the aspirations of our great nation".

It's official: The Internet just ran out of addresses

The pool of new IP addresses, the phone numbers of the Internet, has finally run dry. What do we do from here?

On February 3, it finally happened: the clock ran out on the Internet as we know it. That was the day that the stash of Internet protocol addresses that are used to identify and locate computers connected to the Internet—the telephone numbers of the online world—was exhausted.
The problem is that the current system for IP addresses, IPv4, uses numeric addresses that are 32 bits long—giving a total of just over four billion potential numbers, which must have seemed like a lot when IPv4 was introduced in 1981.

NASA Discovers 54 Planets That Could Support Life

An orbiting NASA telescope is finding whole new worlds of possibilities in the search for alien life, spotting more than 50 potential planets that appear to be in the habitable zone. In just a year of peering out at a small slice of the galaxy, the Kepler telescope has discovered 1,235 possible planets outside our solar system. Amazingly, 54 of them are seemingly in the zone that could be hospitable to life — that is, not too hot or too cold, Kepler chief scientist William Borucki said.
Until now, only two planets outside our solar system were even thought to be in the "Goldilocks zone." And both those discoveries are highly disputed.
Fifty-four possibilities is "an enormous amount, an inconceivable amount," Borucki said. "It's amazing to see this huge number because up to now, we've had zero."

US Marines heading to Egypt?

WASHINGTON: According to a US Marine Corps source,US Marine "multiple platoons" are deploying to Egypt. There is a system within the US Marines that alerts the immediate families of high-ranking marines when their marine will soon be deployed to an emergency situation where they will not be able to talk to their spouses or families.
The alert for the Marines went out on February 5.
A senior Marine told our source that the Pentagon will deploy "multiple platoons" to Egypt over the next few days and that the official reason will be ‘to assist in the evacuation of US citizens."
Our source was told that "the chances they were going over there went from 70% yesterday to 100% today."

Junk Food Lowers Children's IQ, Bristol Univerity Study Reveals

Children who eat more chips, crisps, biscuits and pizza before the age of three have a lower IQ five years later, a study showed.
The study, based on findings from the Chidren of the 90s project, found that youngsters who were eating foods that were high in fats, sugars, and processed foods as three-year-olds had a lower IQ in tests when they were eight-and-a- half years old.
The difference could be as much as five IQ points compared with children given healthier diets with fruit, vegetables and home-cooked food.
But even if their diet improves, it could be too late as the ill-effects can persist for a lifetime.
