That isn't a typo. Dot3-Dot4 is the grade 2 braille contraction for "st", just as the symbol at the end of the sign is short for "er". (I'm also unsure why they called out one contraction as wrong, but not the other one?)
It sounds kind of like a thompson turkey. http://www.no37.net/index.php?n=Know.ThompsonTurkey
Actually, there's good reason for using something that slips on a finger. Aiming a camera at something you can't see with your head would be a lot of trouble. Exploring things by touch is much easier and more accurate. Take the price tag reader, how would you know if the tag it was reading was attached to the shirt you were considering without feel? It could be reading the price for a different product right next to it. Until we can read data straight into our visual cortexes, I think a smaller version of something like this will beat out geordi's visor.
Thank you for posting this! I helped a friend with a painting job that we didn't have time to do right. When I asked her how it came out, she said it was good mostly but sometimes looked bad when the light hit parts of the wall or at certain angles. Then I visited and it looked so awful. I had assumed she was just being nice and wanted me to feel ok about it all, but no one else seemed to notice it either. You have just cleared the whole thing up for me.
Although I think it's necessary to make genes and their functions incapable of being patented, the current system does have one advantage that we will have to seek to duplicate: centralization. If you have a rare genetic disease, as I do, you currently get the test from exactly one company. Your results come back complete with comparison to everyone who has ever had reason and opportunity to get tested for mutations to that gene. This is very helpful prognostically.
DNA testing for medical reasons can also be about the present: "Are these symptoms I'm experiencing now coming from genetic disease Y?"
Handcycles would have made a nice addition, too.
"The ban would restrict the sale of sodas to no more than 16-ounces, and would apply to both fountain and bottled drinks. It would not apply to diet sodas, fruit juices, dairy or alcoholic drinks. Sodas sold at grocery and convenience stores would be exempt as well."
This is still a release candidate, I believe, so wait for the final version?
The two largest groups of christians in the world, the Catholics and the Eastern Orthodox, accept evolution. Christianity is not limited to american evangelicals.

One of my state's senators states on his website that his pen 'n paper mail doesn't reach him for over six weeks because of security concerns. That's often after the vote on whatever you are trying to bother your congress person about.
At least in Heroes 6, offline play is a somewhat crippled version of the game. It is missing a major level-up mechanic and makes you unable to access your normal saves.
You're thinking of Indiana, and I don't think it actually ever passed.
Oscar was amputated at 1 1/2 and grew up an amputee. An adult runner couldn't switch over and have a chance in hell of making anything out of them. As it is, he's one of many double amputee runners from the paralympics using the same technology, and he beats the others of his kind consistently. It's not his prosthetics, it's him.
