Surely this research is a leading candidate!
Don't ever confuse Dubai with an open and modern society. It's a monarchy that needs to hold onto power and does not toerate criticism or free speech of any kind. They walk a fine line between the glamour of business, yet holding onto traditional values and conservatism.
It's also illegal to kiss in public, even for a married couple. People have been arrested, imprisoned and deported for such indecency.
Just get a hold of lex & yaxx, antlr or your favoriate tools and write your own language. You could probabyl abuse Lisp macros anough to do this too. I once worked with a company where the lead programmer had invented Hugh-BOL, and that's what they coded in.
Now, I do admit that a DSL it the best approach from time to time, but there is an limit...
Yes, these engines are fine on auto fuel, known as MOGAS. The thing we have to be careful about is the ethanol they add to unleaded gas, so we go to a lot of trouble to avoid it.. Alcohol in the fuel can lead to corrosion. And to high food prices, but that's a whole 'nuther story...
Panda blood kills microbes. So, how soon before the black market starts selling powdered panda parts?

The HFT programs would slow down a lot if it cost them, say, one cent per share traded. That would not be a burden to average investors, or even the super wealthy, but it dampens the enthusiasm for shifting millions of shares a day to skim tiny fractions.
Wow, this guy has some serious management skillz! Maybe he should be running Spain or Greece or the US?
Ummm - am I the only one that would wonder why anybody would want this?
This technology does scale down. The SportCruiser LSA that I fly from time to time warns me when I get down to 500ft from the ground. This is a 2-seat airplane. However, there are lot of old GA aircraft out there (often 30+ years old) that do not have modern avionics.
Am I the only one thinking of the latest South Park episodes?
How many of the astronauts would be considered flight crew? So long as they're "flying", it would seem they'd be covered by 14 CFR 91.17, which is the 0.04% and 8 hour bottle-to-throttle rule. Oh, IANAL, but IAAP and wondering how many of the FAA regulations apply.
While he may have never actually said it, years from now the world will only remember one thing:
"64 fart apps ought to be enough for anybody"

it's hard to see how a double-blind study could even be designed in this area
In the medical field, it means that both the patient and the doctor evaluating the symptoms don't know who received a placebo.
For this experiment - setup two antennae in front of some seedlings, have a different dude turn one of them on. The person measuring the seedling growth doesn't know which were exposed to radio waves. That's all you need to make sure the study doesn't have some bias in it.
