From the Press Release: Mind-Energy.net Launches a Series of Mind Power Experiments
A series of combined online and offline experiments designed to verify the existence of human mind's ability to perceive information over distance and to influence events over distance are being launched at Mind-Energy.net website.
The faculties of the human mind, such as remote viewing, clairvoyance, telepathy, commonly referred as 'psi' in the science of parapsychology, are still considered paranormal by the mainstream and require further testing to prove or disprove their existence. The everlasting question whether people possess the sixths sense will be put to test once again in a new series of unique experiments on the 'Psi Experiments' website at http://psi.mind-energy.net.
In addition, the experiments will try to discern whether there's a difference between the results of the two genders and is there any connection between subjective level of competence (level of belief) and actual results. The results and the statistics will be published on the site after each experiment ends.
A new experiment will be started once a month and people all over the world will be able to take part in them, with a chance to win prizes from participating sponsors. Anonymous participation is also possible.
Parapsychology articles and blog on http://www.mind-energy.net is a site devoted to parapsychology, healing and alternative medicine news and articles. The website has published over 150 articles describing health tips, interviews with parapsychology researches and healers, personal experiences and psi research news."

A Georgia couple appeared before a judge Wednesday to answer charges that they allegedly stalked a police officer whom they caught speeding in their neighborhood.
Will anybody buy an iPhone that is closed and locked, when they could have a cheaper opensource phone and write apps for it?
I will buy one of these as soon as I can, The chance to finally fix the bugs that annoy me about my phone is too much to pass up. Dont like the way your phone does something? Change it!"
Many critics were fooled, and a minor Hatto-mania ensued following some of the more recent releases, but the digital music CSI teams have proven that some of the discs are simply copies of other recordings.
On the morning train I stumbled upon an article about a teacher who apparently is being sentenced to 40 years in prison for accidental display of hard-core porn pop-ups in class.
Now the story tells that the teacher who was teaching in class had previously been surfing hair fashion pages, which according to the expert witness had installed ad spyware on the computer. These in term flashed hard-core porn ads on regular basis.
At the time there where 10 students in class, from which 4 did see the images displayed. The eleven members of the jury choose to believe that this was an moral assault on the students and didn't care about the expert witness.
Now I find this as a court case completely crazy. I'm not sure if they understand the impact of what they may or may not create with this. I mean what is she suppose to learn from this 40 years sentence? Not to use computers in class? Or perhaps stop using the Internet?
I think it's the same as trying to punish elders for exposing the selfs to the streets where they may be assaulted by robbers..
Something has to be done with this police state if it's not already too late. Los in court and lost to the state.. lost to the Christian way fundamentalism in my opinion. Fundamentalists that actually do have access to nuclear weapons.. shouldn't we do something about that?"
We are an alliance of smaller teams that are working to build a rules-independent world-independent Free Software-licensed game engine that we can share.
Our purpose is for several teams to come together to create tools that let you build your own virtual world, roleplaying game, or whatever else you can imagine. Our purpose is to create a game engine and at least one "reference world."
1 — The license must permit anyone to use, modify, and distribute work based on our products.
2 — All decisions will be made by participating teams, not by a few individuals.
3 — Creation, administration, and maintenance of the demonstration shards will be shared by participating teams.
4 — The reference world will demonstrate that the game engine functions.
5 — The reference world will serve as a working "HOWTO" with examples of some basic tasks."
