Death By Utopia

Death By Utopia
John B. Calhoun relaxing in Universe 25 In the late 20th Century, John B. Calhoun decided to make Utopia; it started with rats. In 1947 he began to watch a colony of Norway rats, over 28 months he noticed something, in that time the population could have increased to 50,000 rats, but instead it never rose above 200. Then he noticed that the colony split into smaller groups of 12 at most. He bought the second floor of a barn, and there he made his office and lab. 2.7 metres square with 1.4m high walls. Society broke. The outside of Universe 25 The purpose of the experiment for Calhoun was to examine a pressing problem, overpopulation. After day 600, the male mice just stopped defending their territory, listless mice congregated in the centres of the Universe. The ‘beautiful ones’ withdrew themselves ever so quietly, removing themselves from the sick society. In the end the population sank, even when it was back down to a tolerable level none of the mice changed back. Further Reading

Part I: Was US Spy Drone Captured by Iranian Flying Saucer? Click here for Part II Mehran Tavakoli Keshe, an Iranian scientist and engineer, claims that an Iranian flying saucer technology he developed was used to capture the Sentinel drone about which the mainstream media has been reporting. Does Iran have a space program more advanced than NASA's? Click here for a version of this, with additional new footage on the KesheFoundation website. by Hank Mills with Sterling D. Of all the inventors making bold claims on the internet, Iranian nuclear engineer Mehran Tavakoli Keshe is perhaps the most enigmatic, and the most interesting. If his statements are true, these craft can do more than just manipulate gravity for propulsion. Keshe is now claiming in a post made to his forum on December 13, that this technology was used by Iran to capture the unmanned Sentinel spy drone that the US military had sent over. As he continues in his post, Keshe talks about how the Iranian saucer program is more advanced than NASA's space program. Follow-up Links

Step by Step Guide to Install Windows 8 Consumer Preview To Go on a USB | Tribal Labs Windows To Go Note: These instructions apply to the Consumer Preview of Windows 8 and technically isn’t actually Windows To Go, it is just Windows 8 running from a USB stick (which is slightly different). From my discussions with Microsoft at TechEd Europe 2012 Windows To Go is only available with Windows 8 Enterprise Edition and only on the final release (the Consumer Preview wasn’t an Enterprise Edition). Also worth noting that when creating a Windows To Go on USB then the USB drive is best to be one that is certified by Microsoft for that usage as that will ensure it is capable of handling the type of read/write access required for this type of usage from both speed and longevity perspectives. Check out the Hardware Considerations on Wiki for more details. If you are still wanting to give it a go knowing this then by all means go ahead but still bear in mind the hardware suggestions. UPDATE: some stats on boot time comparisons included at the end. Prerequisites Downloads Set up your USB

The American Red Cross: LIFE Magazine Goes to a Red Cross Meeting in 1940 In May 1881 Clara Barton — the legendary Civil War nurse known as “the Angel of the Battlefield” — and a philanthropist and humanitarian named Adolphus Solomons founded the American Red Cross. The International Committee of the Red Cross had been formed 18 years earlier, in Switzerland, and both Barton and Solomons had been so impressed by what they’d witnessed of its work in various theaters of war and other crises that they were determined that the United States would and should have its own, viable chapter. In a July 1940 installment of its regular “LIFE Goes to a …” feature (“LIFE Goes to a Mardi Gras Ball,” “LIFE Goes to a Hitler Hex Party,” and so on), LIFE magazine paid homage to the venerable charity with an article titled “LIFE Goes to a Red Cross Meeting.” LIFE calls this week on a chapter of the American Red Cross at Mineola, Long Island, NY.

No Joke: Subway Systems Obey Emergent, Natural Laws As They Grow Subway systems are marvels of engineering and design, even more so for the ones (like London’s or New York’s) that were built in the early 20th century. But still, any rider of a mass transit system has no doubt cursed its design at some point. Why doesn’t the train go here instead of there? Why should an express line reach this neighborhood and not that one? Who’s to blame (or praise) for mass transit system design? The three patterns that any major metropolitan subway system (with more than 100 stations) should have in common are: A core and branches, with core stations arranged in a ring shape above the city center A number of branches that tends toward the square root of the total number of stations About 20% of core stations contain transfers to two or more other lines. At first this seems obvious to the point of banality (except for the square root thing). Which poses an odd question about urban planning.

Part II: Was US Spy Drone Captured by Iranian Flying Saucer? Click here for Part I Sterling Allan, the founder of PESN, had the opportunity to conduct an hour and a half long interview with Mehran Keshe, the individual who claims to have given Iran the advanced space technology that enabled them to capture a US spy drone. by Hank Mills with Sterling D. Allan Pure Energy Systems News Mehran Keshe of the Keshe Foundation claims that the advanced space technology he gave the Iranian military a few years ago, was used to capture the Sentinel spy drone. Now, Sterling Allan, the founder of PESN, has conducted an hour and a half long interview with Keshe. As the interview began, Keshe reiterated his claim that the Iranian military used advanced space technology (far beyond anything NASA may have) to capture the Sentinel spy drone. The guidance technology on that drone is the most sophisticated navigation technology on the planet, at least among the non-black-budget projects. Keshe sees his technology as benefiting space travel more than anything else.

Global Issues : social, political, economic and environmental issues that affect us all — Global Issues Feature The Curse of XanaduBy Gary Wolf It was the most radical computer dream of the hacker era. Ted Nelson's Xanadu project was supposed to be the universal, democratic hypertext library that would help human life evolve into an entirely new form. Instead, it sucked Nelson and his intrepid band of true believers into what became the longest-running vaporware project in the history of computing - a 30-year saga of rabid prototyping and heart-slashing despair. The amazing epic tragedy. I said a brief prayer as Ted Nelson - hypertext guru and design genius - took a scary left turn through the impolite traffic on Marin Boulevard in Sausalito. Nelson is a pale, angular, and energetic man who wears clothes with lots of pockets. Nelson's life is so full of unfinished projects that it might fairly be said to be built from them, much as lace is built from holes or Philip Johnson's glass house from windows. All the children of Nelson's imagination do not have equal stature. Page 2 >>

Khan Academy The lost souls of telecommunications history When Tim Berners-Lee arrived at CERN, Geneva's celebrated European Particle Physics Laboratory in 1980, he'd been hired to help replace the control systems for several of the lab's particle accelerators. Almost immediately, the inventor of the modern Web page noticed a problem: thousands of people were coming and going from the famous research institute, many of them temporary hires. "The big challenge for contract programmers was to try to understand the systems, both human and computer, that ran this fantastic playground," he later wrote. In his spare time, Berners-Lee was working on some software that might alleviate this fragmentation and spread more useful information around. Berners-Lee was pleased with what he eventually produced, but the PASCAL application ran on CERN's obscure and proprietary operating system, so he didn't take it with him when his contract expired. Four years later, Berners-Lee returned to CERN. Why focus on the the dustbin? Wholly unnecessary

Nikola Tesla - Deathbed Confessions, Photos Support Claims That George H. Scherf(f), Jr Was The 41st U.S. President George Bush Panacea Nikola Tesla Recent evidence has surfacing detailing that Nikola Tesla was murdered the day after he was visited for an all-day interview with two secret service agents, Reinhardt Galen & Otto Skorzeny. After suffocating him, they stole all of Tesla’s blueprints & papers. Otto Skorzeny was Hitler’s bodyguard & also an assassin, one of the many Nazis who ex-filtrated to the USA after WWII, as part of Project Paperclip. Although he supposedly died in 1975, Skorzeny resurfaced in 1999. This man, he said, known as George Scherff Snr was none other than Prescott Bush – the father of the 41st President of the US, and grandfather of the current President. Interestingly, an article published in the Idaho Observer has since been removed - although several copies were made of it before it was taken offline.

Memory Improvement Techniques © VeerPRZEMYSLAW PRZYBYLSKI Use these techniques to improve your memory. The tools in this section help you to improve your memory. The tools are split into two sections. As with other mind tools, the more practice you give yourself with these techniques, the more effectively you will use them. Mnemonics 'Mnemonic' is another word for memory tool. The idea behind using mnemonics is to encode difficult-to-remember information in a way that is much easier to remember. Our brains evolved to code and interpret complex stimuli such as images, colors, structures, sounds, smells, tastes, touch, positions, emotions and language. Unfortunately, a lot of the information we have to remember in modern life is presented differently – as words printed on a page. This section of Mind Tools shows you how to use all the memory resources available to you to remember information in a highly efficient way. Using Your Whole Mind to Remember You can do the following things to make your mnemonics more memorable:
