      IRVINE - A new type of metal that is 100 times lighter than Styrofoam has been invented by a team of Southern California researchers, UC Irvine officials announced.

      A photo of a small cube of the new metal, sitting atop a dandelion fluff but not weighing down on it, was released Friday by the UC Irvine, Caltech and Hughes Research Labs scientists who invented it.

      The metal is made up of 99.99 percent air, and the consortium did not release what types of elements make up the solid part of the structure.

      "The trick is to fabricate a lattice of interconnected hollow tubes with a wall thickness 1,000 times thinner than human hair," said Hughes Research Lab researcher Tobias Schaedler.”

      “The researchers, from the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, used monkeys partly because of their anatomical similarities to humans and partly because they are quick learners. In the experiment, two macaques first used a joystick to gain a feel for the arm, which had shoulder joints, an elbow and a grasping claw with two mechanical fingers.Then, just beneath the monkeys’ skulls, the scientists implanted a grid about the size of a large freckle. It sat on the motor cortex, over a patch of cells known to signal arm and hand movements. The grid held 100 tiny electrodes, each connecting to a single neuron, its wires running out of the brain and to a computer.The computer was programmed to analyze the collective firing of these 100 motor neurons, translate that sum into an electronic command and send it instantaneously to the arm, which was mounted flush with the left shoulder. The scientists used the computer to help the monkeys move the arm at first, essentially teaching them with biofeedback.After several days, the monkeys needed no help. They sat stationary in a chair, repeatedly manipulating the arm with their brain to reach out and grab grapes, marshmallows and other nuggets dangled in front of them. The snacks reached the mouths about two-thirds of the time — an impressive rate, compared with earlier work. The monkeys learned to hold the grip open on approaching the food, close it just enough to hold the food and gradually loosen the grip when feeding. On several occasions, a monkey kept its claw open on the way back, with the food stuck to one finger. At other times, a monkey moved the arm to lick the fingers clean or to push a bit of food into its mouth while ignoring a newly presented morsel. The animals were apparently freelancing, discovering new uses for the arm, showing “displays of embodiment that would never be seen in a virtual environment,” the researchers wrote. “”””

      While Forbidden Gates: How Genetics, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Synthetic Biology, Nanotechnology, and Human Enhancement Herald the Dawn of Techno-Dimensional Spiritual Warfare includes fresh insights for traditional, tried-and-true methods of overcoming darkness, it also unveils for the first time how breakthrough advances in science, technology, and philosophy—including cybernetics, bioengineering, nanotechnology, machine intelligence, synthetic biology, and transhumanism—will combine to create mind-boggling game-changes to everything we have ever known about spiritual warfare.
      As a result, new modes of perception between things visible and invisible are expected to challenge the church in ways that are historically and theologically unprecedented. Without comprehending what is quickly approaching in related disciplines of research and development, vast numbers of believers could be paralyzed by the most fantastic—and most far-reaching—supernatural implications. The destiny of each individual—as well as the future of their families—will depend on knowledge of the new paradigm and their preparedness to face it head on.
      This is the reason for this teachers guide. We encourage you to freely share this guide with other churches and groups and to encourage them to become acquainted with the unprecedented techno-spiritual challenges facing the Church and society this century.”

      """"""""""" Sea Launch was founded in 1995, and is owned by a consortium of 4 companies; Boeing Commercial Space (United States, 40% ownership), Energia (Russia, 25%), Aker Solutions (Norway, 20%), and SDO Yuzhnoye (Ukraine, 15%). The first rocket launch was in 1999. The clients are all communications companies, like EchoStar, DirecTV, XM Satellite Radio, and PanAmSat. The satellites are inserted into geostationary transfer orbit, which consists of the satellite cycling between a point in low earth orbit (LEO) and geostationary orbit (GSO).
      " As of 2008, the former Soviet Union and Russia had nearly 1,400 satellites in orbit, the USA about 1,000, Japan more than 100, China about 80, France over 40, India more than 30, Germany almost 30, the UK and Canada 25, and at least ten each from Italy, Australia, Indonesia, Brazil, Sweden, Luxembourg, Argentina, Saudi Arabia, and South Korea. The company Sea Launch — a consortium of four companies from the United States, Russia, Ukraine and Norway — has launched a few satellites into orbit from international waters every year, although the company filed for bankruptcy in 2009.""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

      Your Year in Science
      In this assignment, you are to write an informative paper about scientific advances
      made during the year of your birth. You may begin by examining various sources published
      during the year of your birth to learn about scientific discoveries, advances, or progress made
      during that year. In your paper, tell about and describe the scientific advances you have chosen.
      What is notable about these scientific advances? Make sure you focus on the year of your birth
      and that you present informative details about the scientific advances that occurred during that
      year. Your paper may focus on medicine, astronomy, space exploration, oceanography, to
      name just a few. You decide. This topic is broad, so your first task is to narrow it down to a topic
      that can be developed in a paper. You also must explain how the scientific advances you have
      chosen relate to us today. Have they made any difference at all in our lives today? Explain and
      analyze the importance of the scientific advances that you discuss and show their value (or lack
      of value) to us today.
      Growing up apples everywhere, Atari or antecedent all around me

      Was it price, chip price, design, grant? How into schools and accounting…?

      Atari gravy trained, always near

      Commodore lost, but market won

      What was commodores failure, what is the point of this exercise

       ----And my Abstract-:
      Abstract For Research Paper

      For my research paper, I have chosen to explore, compare, and contrast three advances made in computer technology for the home the year I was born. In 1977, the Commodore PET, the Apple ii, and the Atari 2600 were introduced. The Commodore series of home computers had, until this time, dominated the educational and home-commercial market, and the January release of the PET 2001 model was described by the manufacturer as the “world’s first truly integrated home computer.” Yet the release of the Apple ii months later led to the quick demise of the PET as a market force; I will explore the clash and competition between the PET and the Apple ii in the commercial market, and enlighten reader of the details regarding how the Atari 2600 was making similar advances as the Apple device.  Every platform gaming machine since 1977 has had to live up to the fun had by those playing that Atari; Apple had a computer in every school I attended, while Commodore missed out. In seeking to understand the leap the Apple and Atari made that the Commodore did not, I will discover and report on three modern-day products in similar competition. Finally, I will pick (and justify my choices) a winner, a loser, and the next big thing.
