Une nuit dans une hutte de hobbit

Du sentier, on ne voit qu'une colline couverte de paillis. Seule une cheminée trahit la vie qui se cache dessous. La porte et les fenêtres circulaires du Troglo sortent de terre de l'autre côté, face à la forêt. La ressemblance est frappante: le plus récent gîte du domaine touristique Entre cimes et racines semble tout droit sorti d'un livre de Tolkien.

«Nous ne sommes pas vraiment des grands fans du Seigneur des anneaux, mais j'aimais l'architecture tolkienne, avec les ouvertures rondes, les colonnes, le toit vert et son intégration à la forêt», explique Michaël Berger, l'un des propriétaires.

Not A Joke: Brainwave-Powered Cat Ears Put Your Emotions On Display

I remember playing with a brain-sensor headset from Emotiv at CES a few years ago, and thinking: "Wow, this could really help amputees and veterans use their computers!

It's fitting that a place called Ghost Ranch, New Mexico, would yield the discovery of a scary-looking creature.

New dinosaur species is a missing link

But it's not a ghost - it's a dinosaur. This dog-sized, ferocious-looking critter is called Daemonosaurus chauliodus, which means something along the lines of “buck-toothed evil lizard,” says Hans-Dieter Sues, lead author of the published research describing this dinosaur, and curator of vertebrate paleontology at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. The illustration above compares the head and neck with a quarter. You can see that it has a short snout and enormous front teeth. Scientists found the skull and neck of this previously unrecognized dinosaur, and described it in a study in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B. This dinosaur provides a link between what paleontologists consider "early" and "later" dinosaurs. Cats and Mice armors. Meubles Design, Farfelus et Surprenants!

Real-life gadgets for real-life superheroes

And no, we’re not just referring to firefighters, paramedics, and other heroic people who we’re used to seeing coming to the rescue of others. We’re talking about costume-wearing, identity-concealing, cool-name-having people who fight crime, pollution, or other evils in their own communities, on their own time, and at their own risk. Many of them actually patrol the city streets, ready to intervene if they see trouble brewing – and being ready includes having the right tools.

Clues Suggest Stuxnet Virus Was Built for Subtle Nuclear Sabotage. New and important evidence found in the sophisticated “Stuxnet” malware targeting industrial control systems provides strong hints that the code was designed to sabotage nuclear plants, and that it employs a subtle sabotage strategy that involves briefly speeding up and slowing down physical machinery at a plant over a span of weeks.

Clues Suggest Stuxnet Virus Was Built for Subtle Nuclear Sabotage

“It indicates that [Stuxnet's creators] wanted to get on the system and not be discovered and stay there for a long time and change the process subtly, but not break it,” (.pdf) says Liam O Murchu, researcher with Symantec Security Response, which published the new information in an updated paper on Friday. The Stuxnet worm was discovered in June in Iran, and has infected more than 100,000 computer systems worldwide. Festival Celtique de Québec. How Vinyl Records Are Made–And How to Pirate A Vinyl Record.

Vinyl records have a unique place in the world of music media.

How Vinyl Records Are Made–And How to Pirate A Vinyl Record

Aside from their warm analog tone, vinyl is the only popular medium that is nearly impossible to create or duplicate at home – something that can’t be claimed by cassettes, CDs, DVDs, and certainly not mp3s. Not to be an apologist for piracy, this inherently creates more value for recorded music than using an easily reproducible medium (be it physically or digitally) does. But as we all know, digital is the present and the future, and I am not complaining about that at all; one look at my iTunes playlist and you’ll know what I mean.
