In addition to technical solutions, you might want to investigate stem cell therapy to regrow or heal nerves in the spinal column. The technology is still in the early stages but has been show to improve motor and sensory function in some cases. Here's a recent review article from PloS that might be a starting point for you.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
This paper has already been extensively critiqued. To me the biggest problem is that he didn't include any subscription journals.
Many intentionally flawed or nonsense papers have been submitted -- and published! -- to reputable journals in the past.
This latest demonstration by Bohannan just shows that the peer review system needs improvement. It does not show whether Open Access journals are better or worse than subscription journals in terms of quality and reliability of content.
I'm not a huge advocate of DRM or anything, but it seems like you should aim at the Apple/Android tablet market. Build or license a magazine app for content delivery. It'll let you control how much access your users get to the content -- can they save a copy? email it to someone? etc. -- while making it really convenient for your users to get the content delivered regularly and with minimum effort. I suppose you could try to do this on the desktop, but the mobile device world seems tailor-made to your needs, assuming your target audience usually owns mobile devices.
When I was around that age, I really enjoyed "The Boy Who Reversed Himself" by William Sleator. Pretty entertaining, and a nice introduction to the concept of higher-dimensional spaces.

I'm pretty sure Amazon already does this...
One blindingly obvious way to cut down on fake and artificial reviews: only allow reviews from people who have actually purchased the product.
Amazon already highlights reviews by people who have purchased the product, so the functionality already exists. Why not take the next step and only allow those people to write reviews in the first place?
Alternately, Amazon could allow anyone to write a review, but would only calculate the star rating based on purchasers' reviews.
I'll second this. The Uni-ball Vision Elite Micro is 0.5mm and produces a reasonably fine line (depending on the paper). The ink doesn't bleed, it requires very little pressure, is quasi-waterproof, the pen won't leak if you take it on an airplane, and the writing experience has a great feel, not scratchy or uneven. It took me years to find this pen and now I never buy any other kind. Obligatory Amazon link: Package of 12.
I would love to see the original, full resolution video. Could you upload it somewhere, or perhaps put it up on BitTorrent?
Also, what data sets did you use in the preparation of this movie? I would be interested to see the orbit specifications for all of these asteroids.
Based on the description in the OP, this sounds like just a high temperature solid oxide fuel cell. There's nothing particularly revolutionary about that. It still emits carbon dioxide, and it still requires fuel. Presumably you would feed it with some kind of "carbon neutral" biofuel.
So my question is: why the hype? How is the "Bloom Box" any better than installing a traditional generator powered with biogas? From a practical perspective they seem to do roughly the same thing: take in fuel and spit out electricity and carbon dioxide.
True, the built-in Linux documentation is often lacking. But in spite of that, it's much, much better than the built-in help files for Windows or Mac.
No matter which OS I use, Google is always my first stop for technical help. The difference between them is that with Linux, I usually find a helpful site almost immediately (usually on the Ubuntu Forums). With Windows, the best help I can find is usually some obscure, confusing entry at the Microsoft Support website. Ick.
This isn't new: these terms are exactly the same as Verizon's current plans for Blackberry service. $30/month for the smartphone "data plan", plus an extra $30/month for tethering. And yes, they've always called it "unlimited", but it's always been capped at 5GB. I've been paying these rates for some time. It's annoying, but it's been going on for ages.
It's amusing to me that people are only getting outraged about this now because Verizon is selling a popular new phone that everyone wants to buy.
It's amazing they let you cross borders with books in your possession.
The problem is not crossing a border with a book you already own. The problem, for Amazon, is having the rights to sell a book in a different country. Plus higher wireless costs. Plus VAT. All in all, I'm surprised the price is bump is as small as 40%.
PC Pro has discovered.
The OP summary is quite a troll. PC Pro hasn't "discovered" anything: all of this information was easy to find on the International Kindle website the day it was announced.
