SolEol has been an ongoing pet project of mine to automate some tasks I do routinely regarding subtitle download and other video treatment. You can use it to download subtitles for Mac, Linux and Windows. I’ve been asked to share what I had and after some quick clean-up I’ve made just that. I’ve disabled the screens I know would be just too buggy for general use and focused on subtitle download alone. The tool has been designed on an Intel Mac and is compiled as a universal app, there are versions for Linux (with GTK+) Windows as well. –Download SolEol Changes in 1.5 – 20110404Second-to-last version before the big Cocoa re-write of 2012!

Hi-SEAS and Mars Society kick off new season of missions The Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation (aka. Hi-SEAS) – a human spaceflight analog for Mars located on the slopes of the Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii – just kicked off its third research mission designed to simulate manned missions on Mars. Located at an elevation of 2500 meters (8,200 feet) above sea level, the analog site is located in a dry, rocky environment that is very cold and subject to very little precipitation. While there, the crew of Mission Three will conduct detailed research studies to determine what is required to sustain a space flight crew during an extended mission to Mars and while living on Mars. The six-member team includes Martha Lenio (Commander), Allen Mirkadyrov, Sophie Milam, Neil Sheibelhut, Jocelyn Dunn, and Zak Wilson, with Ed Fix and Micheal Castro in Reserve. This crew will spend the next 254 days living in conditions that closely resemble those present on the Martian surface.

Nature is cruel. There is no getting round that. Some creatures inflict all manner of horrible torments on others in order to feed and reproduce, or even just to play. Many species across the animal kingdom are cannibals, eating members of their own species for sustenance or dominance. But there is one behaviour that is even more extreme than simple cannibalism. We asked our readers if they had ever heard about animals eating themselves. It is better to lose a limb than to lose your life "I don't think any animal would deliberately try to consume itself for sustenance.... kind of defeats the self-preservation part [of] desperate eating," says Selina Tick Konkin. This is true, and distressingly well-documented. One unfortunate tiger in Tesso Nilo National Park in central Sumatra was photographed in 2007 with a front paw missing. However, none of these are cases of autocannibalism. Extreme as these acts are, there is a clear logic to them. William T. Similarly, James B.
