Now, nearly 140 senior human population geneticists around the world, many of whose work was cited in the book, have signed a letter to The New York Times Book Review stating that Wade has misinterpreted their work.

Guys, he can "misinterpret" your works as much has he likes, that's the whole point of "original research" and "original opinion". He takes your works and forms is own conclusions. It's him, not you. As long as he cites you.

Hell, you don't have to agree with him. Obviously.

A follow up-follow up: I'm on Ubuntu 14.04, and Skype was updated to [ ] a few days ago via the "Canonical Partners" repo (check it in the "Other Software" tab via the "Software Sources" panel). Surprised the hell out of me as Skype on Linux seriously hasn't been updated in a long, long time (makes me wonder what NSA junk they needed to add into it).

Also, Skype loaded up and connected fine ("online") just now, before I started typing this out.

Zanadou (1043400) writes "NASA has been testing new space travel technologies throughout its entire history, but the results of its latest experiment may be the most exciting yet — if they hold up. Earlier this week at a conference in Cleveland, Ohio, scientists with NASA's Eagleworks Laboratories in Houston, Texas, presented a paper indicating they had achieved a small amount of thrust from a container that had no traditional fuels, only microwaves, bouncing around inside it. If the results can be replicated reliably and scaled up — and that's a big "if," since NASA only produced them on a very small scale over a two-day period — they could ultimately result in ultra-light weight, ultra fast spacecraft that could carry humans to Mars in weeks instead of months, and to the nearest star system outside our own (Proxima Centurai) in just about 30 years.

The type of container NASA tested was based on a model for a new space engine that doesn't use weighty liquid propellant or nuclear reactors, called a Cannae Drive; a variation of the controversial EmDrive."
