+ - Reference Management in HTML->

Submitted by
goose-incarnated
goose-incarnated writes "Blog writing should be just as well researched as real writing. It should be well-referenced with proper citations. Unfortunately, I did not find any such library that will easily make linked citations to a references database that can be used when writing material for the browser. So, I wrote my own, at lelanthran.com.

Feel free to use and distribute — it works well in WikkaWiki with the raw html mode turned on (not a problem, as my particular Wikkawiki is private)."

+ - Aid in conception, gender choice of foetus ->

Submitted by
goose-incarnated
goose-incarnated writes "As an aid to conception (and gender selection of the resulting offspring) I offer up this tiny project here. Note that it is still in beta stage, as funding hasn't come through to complete the data gathering (hence no privacy implications until it is modified and recompiled). The proposal paper over here has a bit more detail on what is intended.

Feel free to download and use."

+ - FIFA owns South African Flag IP->

Submitted by goose-incarnated
goose-incarnated (1145029) writes "IP Laws going overboard in SA, where a national carrier has been warned off using the South African National flag in it's advertisements by FIFA for the upcoming world-cup event. Reading somewhat like an Onion story, ""They said we cannot depict the Cape Town stadium, we can't use soccer balls, or the word 'South Africa', and the depiction of the national flag is not allowed," said marketing manager Nadine Damen. "

From the "all-your-base" dept."

+ - Smoking and Caffeine May Protect Against Parkinson->

Submitted by goose-incarnated
goose-incarnated (1145029) writes "Apparently, there can be some benefits for smokers, if you look hard enough. http://www.physorg.com/news95354576.html is one of many articles available that summarises some of the hard research done into tobacco and nicotine. A quick google search http://www.google.co.za/search?hl=en&q=alzheimers+parkinsons+smoking&btnG=Google+Search&meta= shows that this news is not exactly a secret anyway.

"Smoking lowers your chances of alzheimers" — they should put that on the packet of cigarettes :-)."
