Comment: Not to worry, Wil Wheaton there (Score 1) 1215

Those of us who started the worldwide gaming industry are fighting back against the 8 yo boys issuing death threats.

Steve Jackson, Wil Wheaton, people like myself who created this are having panels at DragonCon, PAX, and other cons worldwide.

No, it is not ok to be a misogynist. Ever.

No, it is not ok to issue death threats online. Ever.

Flame on, baby trolls who stew in hatred, we know how inadequate your sad pitiful lives are.

+ - Magnetic stimulation boosts memory in people->

Submitted by sciencehabit
sciencehabit (1205606) writes "Our memories are annoyingly glitchy. Names, dates, birthdays, and the locations of car keys fall through the cracks, losses that accelerate at an alarming pace with age and in neurodegenerative diseases. Now, by applying electromagnetic pulses through the skull to carefully targeted brain regions, researchers have found a way to boost memory performance in healthy people. The new study sheds light on the neural networks that support memories and may lead to therapies for people with memory deficits, researchers say."

+ - Why women have no time for Wikipedia 2

Submitted by Andreas Kolbe
Andreas Kolbe (2591067) writes "Wikipedia is well known to have a very large gender imbalance, with survey-based estimates of women contributors ranging from 8.5% to around 16%. This is a more extreme gender imbalance than even that of Reddit, the most male-dominated major social media platform, and it has a palpable effect on Wikipedia content. Moreover, Wikipedia editor survey data indicate that only 1 in 50 respondents is a mother – a good proportion of female contributors are in fact minors, with women in their twenties less likely to contribute to Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation efforts to address this "gender gap" have so far remained fruitless. Wikipedia’s demographic pattern stands in marked contrast to female-dominated social media sites like Facebook and Pinterest, where women aged 18 to 34 are particularly strongly represented. It indicates that it isn’t lack of time or family commitments that keep women from contributing to Wikipedia – women simply find other sites more attractive. Wikipedia’s user interface and its culture of anonymity may be among the factors leading women to spend their online time elsewhere."

There already is climate change. Acidic oceans making shell formation difficult to impossible for baby clams in the NW coastal areas, species migration to higher elevations, entire forests decimated by insects that don't die due to global warming.

But keep denying it if you want. God doesn't care that you ignored his "steward" deal.

No, not really.

PACCAR (just a few miles away) is already making all-electric and fuel cell (H20 split) trucks, as well as hybrid trucks and biodiesel trucks.

Boeing is already making jets and planes that use 1/2 to 1/10th the fuel to move people and goods. China and almost all First World nations are making high speed trains, and Canada has used fuel cell trains powered entirely by wind and solar along train lines (using battery swap modules) as well as biodiesel ones.

Tractors in the EU and various other nations are made to use biodiesel or fuel cells. We sell it from US/Canadian plants overseas.

We have the technology and the large-scale production capacity to make it.

You just don't get that the 20th Century is over.
