Could u txt me ur blood sample?

In the developed world, we take camera phones for granted as ways to record our lives – but in poorer countries they could be used to save lives, say bioengineers. The US team has designed a portable microscope that straps to a camera phone and can be used to diagnose potentially fatal diseases in blood and sputum samples.

Window on the body: CT scans become art

Radiologist Kai-hung Fung makes beautiful and informative art from the CT (computed tomography) scans of his patients, digitally manipulating them to look more appealing. His image of the inside of our sinuses won the 2007 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge. See this and some of his more recent works in our gallery

And Now… Desperate People to Work for Free
July 20th, 2009

Via: Reuters:

With U.S. unemployment at a 20-year high, some Americans are working for free while looking for a job, but experts are split over whether it is a sign of dedication or desperation.

Unpaid job seekers can keep their resumes fresh by boosting their experience and learning new skills, experts say, but others warn businesses may take advantage of the jobless and that it is illegal for commercial companies not to pay workers.

SHOULD you ever travel back in time to ancient Rome and you get a headache while you're there, you might want to just grin and bear it. If you visit a doctor, he will likely go to his saltwater tank, carefully scoop up an electric fish, and press it to your forehead in the hope of shocking the headache out of you.

This is one of the examples Andrew Koob uses to guide us through the history of the brain, showing how, when it comes to understanding our own grey matter, we are so easily led astray.

Vision shift glasses alter time perception:

There's an intriguing study about to be published in Psychological Science finding that people wearing prism glasses that shift everything to the right overestimate the passage of time, while people wearing left-shift glasses underestimate it.

Grow Your Own Skyscraper

By Philip Bethge

Three young German architects are designing structures made completely out of living trees, including a pavilion for concerts in downtown Stuttgart. But designing the ultimate treehouse turns out to be trickier than one might expect.

Are these dates corrected for julian calendar or is it only the numerical phenomenon of July 22? I have to say that 11 events in about 630 years is not that impressive.

Los Pozas Surreallist Follies
A park of dream-like sculptures and architectural follies in the Mexican jungle



The surreal folly gardens at Xilitla were created by Edward James, an eccentric British millionaire and patron of the arts. Set into 80 acres of jungle, he and his builders spent 25 years and millions of dollars creating a nature inspired fantasy in concrete.

Edward James began his life in the sheltered luxury of the English upper class. He attended Eton and Oxford, and later became a great supporter and collector of surrealist art, sponsoring both Dali and Magritte in the 1930s. His English home Monkton House is also a dedicated surrealist fantasy. His role as a patron of the arts put him in touch with luminaries of his times, including Dylan Thomas, Sigmund Freud, DH Lawrence, and Aldous Huxley. Huxley introduced him to Hollywood types, who in turn introduced him to spiritualist, surrealist, west coast visionaries, who then introduced him to the wilds of Mexico. A great lover of plants and animals, he was immediately attracted to he jungles of Mexico by the lush vegetation and the leisurely pace.

http://associatesdegree.org/free-edu...-ancient-maps/

Works of art in and of themselves, these ancient maps reveal a great deal more than the geographical knowledge of our ancestors. They tell stories of war and triumph, reveal myths and biases, and document modes of thought that have long been obsolete.

Androgynous Illuminati Fashion

The fashion world is becoming increasingly blatant with it's "Illuminati" symbolism lately, this set for D Mag was literally titled 'Illuminati', taken by photographer Antonella Arismendi with a couple of male models (Alex Nestor and Yamil Castiglione) their similar styles of hair with opposite colours [black/white] plays into their duality obsession (androgyny is also, the combining of the two opposite genders [male/female]). The Eye in the Pyramid "Illuminati" motif drawn on these stereotypical looking male models (male models always seem to look even more androgynous, expressionless and devoid of personality than female models, they always seem to be ugly too). As well as the standard "Illuminati" symbol of the eye in the pyramid, the masks, androgyny, the more general bondage themes (chain[mail] shirt thing/black leather/etc) and the native american headdress are worth noting too.

Government Swine Flu Advisor On Vaccine Maker Payroll
July 27th, 2009

Via: Infowars:

Many people seem genuinely baffled that western governments are hyping the arrival of a swine flu pandemic as if it’s the greatest threat to humanity since the bubonic plague, despite the relatively low number of deaths from the virus, unaware that the pharmaceutical industry has been intimately joined at the hip with the state for decades.

Another illustration of that fact is the revelation that one of the UK government’s top advisors on swine flu also happens to be a sitting board member of GlaxoSmithKline, the company selling dangerous and untested swine flu vaccines, as well as anti-viral drugs Tamiflu and Relenza, to the NHS.

“Professor Sir Roy Anderson sits on the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage), a 20-strong task force drawing up the action plan for the virus. Yet he also holds a £116,000-a-year post on the board of GlaxoSmithKline,” reports the Daily Mail.

We also learn that Anderson was “one of the first UK experts to call the outbreak a pandemic,” and has been busy on radio and TV pushing the effectiveness of anti-virals to fight swine flu, without telling listeners that he was on the GSK payroll.
