Global warming Fact or fraud, data is falsified to promote fear

Just how real is Global warming when the data most quoted by proponents has been falsified A surreal scientific blunder last week raised a huge question mark about the temperature records that underpin the worldwide alarm over global warming On Monday, Nasa's Goddard Institute for Space Studies GISS, which is run by Al Gore's chief scientific ally, Dr James Hansen, and is one of four bodies responsible for monitoring global temperatures, announced that last month was the hottest

Never use garlic stored in oil

Wow things you learn on the net, garlic in colored oil breed botulism You see them every year as the holidays approach: beautiful bottles of colored oil stuffed full with peppers or garlic Don't even think of using them in your cooking, though When garlic is coated in oil, conditions are almost perfect for the production of botulism All that is lacking is some time at room temperature and you have a very hazardous situation, because botulism cannot be seen or tasted Even refrigera

New Moon rover looks great

The new Moon rover prototype runs of Lithium batteries and can carry 2 people for up to two weeks Its a real home away from home I am surprised how big it is, it would surely take more than one flight to get it up there With six-wheel drive, active suspension, and computerized navigation, a new battery-powered truck being field tested this week in Arizona sounds like the next generation of sport-utility vehicles But when the final model rolls out in 2019, only an exclusive group of h

The sun is cooling down - to the lowest level in over 100 years

Will the sun changes have any effects on earth Dunno according to the article some things will change such as the orbital decay of satellites, but beyond that maybe we should keep an eye out for abnormal things Its all very vague The sun is taking a once-in-a-century nap, say solar researchers The sun's wind of hot particles is now blowing with less vigor and less heat than at any time since the start of the Space Age in the mid-20th century, according to data collected by the 18-y

Tracks from 5000 dinosaurs found in Bolivia

In Bolivia a huge slab from an ancient shallow sea has preserved thousands of dinosaur footprints In 1994, while walking around a cement factory in southern Bolivia, Klaus Schütt discovered a limestone wall with a shear size of 25'000 square meters literally covered by dinosaur tracks A few years later, in 1998, a scientific team lead by Swiss paleontologist Christian Meyer investigated the wall, and proved it was "the largest site of dinosaur tracks found so far" [quote]The immense

Sub vocalization microphone developed

Imagine being able to talk into your cell phone without sound coming from your lips It would great in war with the sounds of battle all around, or even on a crowded train, or at a party Just think how eerie it would be, yet also how peaceful - people all around having conversations on their mobile phones, but without uttering a sound Thanks to some military research, this social nirvana just might come true DARPA, the US Department of Defense's research agency, is working on a projec
