10 Most Fascinating Castles and Palaces




Those castles and fortresses are a testament to the goods of slave labour. You could never build anything that awesome and wicked today, the unionists have put a stop to that.

One nation, seven sins
Geographers measure propensity for evil in states, counties


We have all heard religious leaders lament that the United States has turned sinful and ungodly. But, where exactly is this happening? Geographers from Kansas State University have used a variety of statistical data to map wickedness in counties across the nation, giving us a better idea of which specific cities and towns are ripe for smiting from above.

The prevalence of each of the Seven Deadly Sins is mapped out separately; for instance, gluttony was measured by tallying the number of fast food restaurants per capita, lust by rates of STD infection, and sloth by comparing rates of expenditures on recreation with rates of employment. When all was told, the Deep South and Bible Belt, along with California, are where people live least biblically, while the Midwest would make Moses proud.

Dubia does alright with building islands and stuff.

But hey, i'm not going to tell you that i think slavery is a bad thing...

Three Must See Presentations: Power of the Internet and Why Our Governments Are Trying to Control It

Avatar http://www.chycho.com

Posted by salviad 5 days ago View profile

There is a very good possibility that the World War III option is an attempt to control the Internet by eliminating Net Neutrality and online free speech. It appears that the boundaries set between countries through treaties are vanishing due to the exponential dissemination of information through the Net. This is in conflict with the wishes of the oligarchy who are willing to do anything to maintain control.




The attack on the Internet is three-pronged, it involves bandwidth throttling by ISP’s, Internet censorship by governments, and the oligarchy trying to prevent Network Neutrality.

What If You Could Move Objects With Your Mind? Well, That Time Has Come.

Just like Yoda levitated Luke's X-Wing Fighter, a new Mattel toy raises a ping-pong ball using only the power of your mind. (Small wireless headsets convert your brain's electrical activity into a wireless signal.)

But that's only the beginning. Government-financed projects are investigating mechanical hands, arms, and legs controlled by the nervous system. Though NeuroSky's hardware is used in "The Force Trainer," they're marketing their brain-wave sensors to the healthcare industry, with applications in education and even the automotive industry.

CIA's Kryptos -Does it Hold The Key to the Sequel to "The Da Vinci Code"?


Daily Galaxy: One of the few uncracked codes at the Central Intelligence Agency headquarters in Langley, Virginia is found in Kryptos, a wonder of technology, a sculpture sitting in a sunny corner of the headquarters courtyard.

"EMUFPHZLRFAXYUSDJKZLDKRNSHGNFIVJ" is the first line of the Kryptos sculpture, a 10-foot-tall, S-shaped copper scroll perforated with 3-inch-high letters spelling out words in code resembling a piece of paper emerging from a computer printer. Completed 15 years ago, Kryptos, which is Greek for "hidden," at first attracted interest from government code breakers who deciphered the easier parts without announcing their findings publicly.

The main sculpture is made of red granite, red and green slate, white quartz, petrified wood, lodestone and copper, and is located in the northwest corner of the headquarters courtyard. The characters consist of the 26 letters of the standard alphabet and question marks cut out of the copper. This "inscription" contains four separate enigmatic messages, each apparently encrypted with a different cipher.

Mystery lovers around the world have joined members of the national-security establishment in trying to crack the rest. So far, neither amateurs nor pros have been able to crack the code.

New Video Game’s Objective: Stop the Spread of Christianity and Islam

Lindsey Ward, WSLS TV: A video image released by the computer game’s creator showing an injured man may
not appear to be graphic, but you may change your mind once
you know who it is. It’s the Islamic prophet Muhammad. The new game, not yet released, is giving a voice to the atheist community, that’s according to the game’s creator, a University of Virginia graduate student. He wouldn’t release his name, for fear of his safety.

“Atheists have never really had anything to speak for them like this. It’s the general atheist premise that the world might be a better place without some of those religions,” explained the
creator of the game.

The object of the game is to stop the spread of Christianity and Islam by murdering Abraham and the authors of the Bible, before beheading Muhammad. “This really just mirrors, you know, a lot of violence that we see,” explained the creator.

Barkley Thompson is a Reverend at Saint John’s Episcopal Church in downtown Roanoke. After hearing about the game and seeing its images he says it’s a sign of the times. “I think that the images speak of a culture that as become obsessed with violence, I think that it is true in all demographics, but it seems to me particularly true of younger age groups,” said Thompson.

However, the game’s creator argues the game is not just violent and it has a message to young players, helping them imagine a time when the world’s two largest religions were new and less organized. “It’s the idea of being able to go back in time and sort of nipping the problem in the bud,” said the game’s creator.

Possible site of free will found in brain

Free will, or at least the place where we decide to act, is sited in a part of the brain called the parietal cortex, new research suggests.

When a neurosurgeon electrically jolted this region in patients undergoing surgery, they felt a desire to, say, wiggle their finger, roll their tongue or move a limb. Stronger electrical pulses convinced patients they had actually performed these movements, although their bodies remained motionless.

"What it tells us is there are specific brain regions that are involved in the consciousness of your movement," says Angela Sirigu (pdf format), a neuroscientist at the CNRS Cognitive Neuroscience Centre in Bron, France, who led the study.

Garbage to Green: 10 Landfills Turned into Nature Preserves



Landfills are among the most notorious pieces of real estate in the world. Even a hardcore recycler is still directly or indirectly responsible for creating trash that will find its way to a landfill. It is a side effect of modern human life. But landfills don’t have to remain steaming heaps of smelly rubbish. Take these ten former trash heaps that are now characterized by abundant green and diverse wildlife.

This is a good one to pay attention to - it reflects other articles i posted about solar flares and the interference they cause, as well as the "killshot" that would take out satellites.

Watch “Sita Sings the Blues” online
Thursday, February 26th, 2009 at 6:57 pm

Sita is a goddess separated from her beloved Lord and husband Rama. Nina is an animator whose husband moves to India, then dumps her by e-mail. Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both ancient tragedy and modern comedy in this beautifully animated interpretation of the Indian epic Ramayana. Set to the 1920’s jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw, Sita Sings the Blues earns its tagline as “The Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told.”

Planck: The future of probing the past

During inflation, quantum fluctuations in space-time were extended to cosmological scales: by the time the CMB was released, these fluctuations had led to variations in the distribution of matter across the universe. Denser regions of the universe produced CMB photons slightly colder than average, and vice versa.

Planck will create the sharpest possible map of all the CMB's anisotropies, and will arguably provide the final word on their distribution (see "computer simulation, above right"). "It is the Everest excuse - we are going to get everything because it's there," says cosmologist Andrew Jaffe of Imperial College London.

By measuring these temperature variations accurately, cosmologists can calculate parameters such as the curvature of space-time, and the contribution of dark energy, dark matter and normal matter to the distribution of mass and energy in the universe. Planck will slash the uncertainties in the values of these parameters to less than 1 per cent. "In terms of the information that is available to do cosmology, Planck is about 15 times better than WMAP," says Jan Tauber, Planck's project scientist at ESA's offices in Noordwijk, the Netherlands.

When Comets Attack: Solving the Mystery of the Biggest Natural Explosion in Modern History
On the morning of June 30, 1908, the sky exploded over a remote region of central Siberia. A fireball as powerful as hundreds of Hiroshima atomic blasts scorched through the upper atmosphere, burning nearly 800 square miles of land. Scientists today think a small fragment of a comet or asteroid caused the "Tunguska event," so named for the Tunguska river nearby. Now, a controversial new scientific study suggests that a chunk of a comet caused the 5-10 megaton fireball, bouncing off the atmosphere and back into orbit around the sun. The scientists have even identified a candidate Tunguska object—now more than 100 million miles away—that will pass close to Earth again in 2045. Is there a hidden, but powerful, danger inside the seemingly harmless comet?

Source and Credit: Baylor University

Two Baylor University scientists have come up with a new method to cause a spaceship to effectively travel faster than the speed of light, without breaking the laws of physics.

Dr. Gerald Cleaver, associate professor of physics at Baylor, and Richard Obousy, a Baylor graduate student, theorize that by manipulating the extra spatial dimensions of string theory around a spaceship with an extremely large amount of energy, it would create a "bubble" that could cause the ship to travel faster than the speed of light. To create this bubble, the Baylor physicists believe manipulating the 10th spatial dimension would alter the dark energy in three large spatial dimensions: height, width and length. Cleaver said positive dark energy is currently responsible for speeding up the expansion rate of our universe as time moves on, just like it did after the Big Bang, when the universe expanded much faster than the speed of light for a very brief time.

"Think of it like a surfer riding a wave," said Cleaver, who co-authored the paper with Obousy about the new method. "The ship would be pushed by the spatial bubble and the bubble would be traveling faster than the speed of light."

http://www.military-heat.com/91/p791...rship-project/

P-791 hybrid airship project

January 31, 2006 marked the maiden flight of the P-791 experimental hybrid airship. Developed by Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Development Programs aka Skunk Works, the P-791 hybrid airship was flight tested at Lockheed Martin’s flight test facility on the Palmdale Air Force Plant 42.

The United States Department of Defense is interested in the development of an airship capable of transporting heavy loads, 500-1000 tons of cargo, up to 12,000 nautical miles. Such designs have been announced by DARPA ( Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency ). The Walrus HULA ( Hybrid Ultra Large Aircraft ) is an example of such an aircraft. A small scale version of the Walrus is scheduled to fly this year with a 40,000 pounds payload.

Skunk Works managed to test fly the P-791 two years earlier. Although just a testbed for future development, P-791 successors can be used in the future for a number of applications such as delivery of fighting units in a theater of operations or as a weapons/sensor/communications platform capable of operating for long periods of time. The test flight was just a short traffic circuit around the Palmdale Air Force Plant 42 airport and Lockheed did not want to comment the flight.

Airships have great potential for transporting cargo but their use has declined after a series of accidents, one of the most famous of which was the 1937 Hindenburg disaster. Another reason for their decline is the delicate ground handling and relatively high vulnerability to meteorological conditions.The P-791 is an independent research and development program initiated by Skunk Works to better understand the capabilities and to try to solve the numerous problems faced by operating large airships.
