How to Hunt Elephants MATHEMATICIANS hunt elephants by going to Africa, throwing out everything that is not an elephant, and catching one of whatever is left.

COMPUTER SCIENTISTS hunt elephants by exercising Algorithm A: Go to Africa. Start at the Cape of Good hope.

Netanyahu talks the talk, but that's it Iran plus nuclear warheads for ballistic missiles is not a good pairing. This basic premise leaves no room for flowery talk. This axiom is not even open for argument for argument's sake. Iran already today is digging its predatory claws into the Middle East, North Africa, the Persian Gulf and other parts of the globe. 6 Insane Batman Villains You Won't See in the Movies Batman has the greatest set of villains of any superhero, but not every character can be a Joker or a Two-Face. Or even a Penguin. It turns out that the only thing one needs to qualify as a member of Batman's rogue gallery is being insane and knowing how to sew a costume. We all know that sooner or later, the Batman movies are going to run out of interesting villains to feature and will be forced to start scraping closer to the bottom of the barrel. Whoever they end up choosing, we hope it's not someone like ... #6.

GNU Radio - WikiStart - Introduction¶ GNU Radio is a free & open-source software development toolkit that provides signal processing blocks to implement software radios. It can be used with readily-available low-cost external RF hardware to create software-defined radios, or without hardware in a simulation-like environment. It is widely used in hobbyist, academic and commercial environments to support both wireless communications research and real-world radio systems.

When Star Wars droids suffer from low self-esteem No, they don't. (But outside of Artoo, I'm not convinced that they are capable of independent thought—sure, they can follow a flowchart the programmers gave them, but that's hardly "independent"...) One of the more intriguing lines in the prequels was Obi-Wan's line "Well, if droids could think, there'd be none of us here" in Attack of the Clones. So clearly droids aren't seen as sentient, per se, although they might exhibit signs of autonomy and emotion. Consciousness would be an emergent phenomenon, not intended by the designers or manufacturers.

Unlikely: The Impossible and Improbable Objects of Giuseppe Colarusso In this ongoing series titled Unlikely, artist and photographer Giuseppe Colarusso imagines bizarre and humorous objects, each of which is either technically impossible, improbable, or simply useless in its proposed design. Colarusso tells me via email that many of the pieces he fabricates himself, however some are digitally created in Photoshop. So what’s the point? He hopes each image will make you stop, think and hopefully bring a smile to your face, which is definitely a worthy cause. Also, I would pay top dollar for that spray paint can with adjustable hue sliders, so could somebody make that? See some 50+ additional concepts over on his website.

SO here it goes: US aims for March 'understanding' with Iran on nukes MONTREUX, Switzerland (AP) — A senior US official spoke of some progress Wednesday in reaching a nuclear deal with Iran but tamped down expectations of a formal, preliminary deal this month outlining constraints on Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief for the Islamic Republic. Get The Times of Israel's Daily Edition by email and never miss our top stories Free Sign up! The official said the negotiations are aiming for a much looser construct — “an understanding that’s going to have to be filled out with lots of detail” by their late March target date. The official demanded anonymity because this person wasn’t authorized to discuss the secret negotiations publicly. Once Iran and the six nations negotiating with it reach such a progress report, US President Barack Obama will then determine whether it is grounds to continue talks aimed at a comprehensive deal in June, the official said.
