It's just a load of bulls....[carrier lost]
It can't be 'the Internet of things' if you are still on dial up.
Indeed. Every single bit of technology ever devised has been used to kill people. It's what we do.
Unless you're writing cheesy made-for-TV movies, nothing to see here. Move along.
Well, lots of people since DNA is pretty easy to destroy using a bunsen burner. That said, this isn't all that impressive. Lots of handwaving and little actual instrumentation (did the temperature actually get to 1000 degrees near that screw head or was it protected). It does point out that even naked DNA on something like a meteorite could well survive the entire trip down in a viable conformation.
That opens lots of possibilities such as panspermia.
Maybe they can keep birds away, but frogs, not so much.
This news story is as boring as the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey..
I believe you are on the wrong web site for your personal proclivities. I suggest, perhaps, e! (or maybe Vogue, Elle or just the National Enquirer).
Maybe you should get a spelling checker for Christmas.
Doubtful it will be a 'switch' like one thinks about in electronics or logic. It is a complex pathway so there will be plenty of other regulatory and counter regulatory effects. Of interest, is that there are a number of drugs already in trials that work on similar pathways, so it's a bit doubtful that these researchers have found a magic bullet type of thing.
And even if they can shut it off completely in animal studies, it is a long road to developing a useful clinical treatment.
Don't short opium growers just yet.
MTBF is proportional to the bridge reliability.
Well this is obviously a problem.
With the Captain, First Officer and bog-knows who all jumping into the transporter for every little issue, it's no wonder that the efficiency on the bridge suffers. You're supposed to send down expendable people to the surface.
What does 1.701ms have to do with Star Trek?
And here on Slashdot even.
BJ Clinton was impeached, lost his law license, sold nuclear secrets to China for campaign contributions, and should be a registered sex offender.
Sounds pretty presidential to me. Your point being?
More like 34.
This is the problem - there is subset of individual policemen and entire departments that AREN'T courteous or reasonable. They start out hostile and alienating. The interaction also starts out at an a very unequal power level. When you are placed in this sort of situation, it is much harder (and much more important) to finesse it exactly right.
It can be done, such individuals and departments often aren't the sharpest pencils and with a bit of training and fore thought, you can work around them but it's harder. And also recall that not every alleged perp is all that sharp / sober or even interested in defusing the situation.
So play acting these types of confrontation can be extremely effective. Unfortunate, but effective.
'These are not the perps you are looking for
...isn't this just the equivalent of taxicabs? Why do so many futurists seem obsessed with pushing a taxi-based future?
If they actually called them taxis, we probably wouldn't even give it a discussion. But combine words like "personal" and "public transportation"...
Probably because we've all seen Fifth Element.
Right. If there are a half million Cynaogen mods out there, hell, let's make it a full million, they certainly don't represent "people getting their knickers in a twist". According to Wikipedia, there are something like 7E10 cell phones out there. 1E6 modded phones means absolutely jack.
