OK, thanks, make that 2/3 of a bottle then. Still isn't LD50 within any definable experimental period. It's still alarmist nonsense
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
FTFA "A comparative risk assessment of drugs including alcohol and tobacco using the margin of exposure (MOE) approach was conducted. The MOE is defined as ratio between toxicological threshold (benchmark dose) and estimated human intake
So that's 1/2 a g per kg, or say 50g for me. A bottle of wine masses 750g, and at 13% would contain 97.5 g of alcohol
So according to this paper if I drink half a bottle of wine without excreting I am in danger of toxicological thresshold
matlab programmer here. $130k+super+6 weeks leave +18 sick days per year. So, as dead ends go, not too shabby
In parts of the automotive world matlab is used for algorithm development (for example for image recognition for anti collision systems) which can then be automagically cross compiled for the target embedded processor.

Not a terrible gig.
Fuck me dead. I have to read 90% of the comments on a thread on a technology site to get to this post.. Yes exactly. Mobile phones will be ubiquitous, so automatic translators will be ubiquitous.
yes, that was pretty much my reaction. Pretty clueless article if you ask me. Which you didn't.
" Particularly alarming was the number of camera feeds of sleeping babies, which people often set up to protect them, but, being unaware of the risks, don't change the username or password from the default options that came with the cameras."
What risk, exactly? I can't imagine anything more boring than a video of a sleeping baby.
OcTave (as TFA's author would probably write it) is a sufficiently good clone of Matlab. I write many of my scripts ins Octave on a Mac at home, for use at work on PCs.
So given that conventional atmosphere models have ignored this to date, if the oceans are storing 90% of the excess heat, why aren't the conventional models showing temperature rises 10 times as great as what is observed, say 5-10 deg C?
Either the summary or the article are slack in the extreme.
If the Earth's atmosphere warmed by 1 degree C (approximately the size of the hockey stick) then that heat energy would warm the Earth's oceans by an unmeasurable 0.001 deg c. Yet the climate buffoons ignore the oceans in their models.
the air in your lungs is at the external pressure and so is the nitrogen in the joints etc, IF no additional high pressure nitrogen is injected into the system, the lungs and joints are in equilibrium no matter what the external pressure, they all compress together.
Subtract all fossil fuels from your current lifestyle. And all plastic, unless you are using casein(rendered cheese).
I think you'll find that your lifestyle will be about Cuban on the level of energy intensity. That is obviously feasible, but not without sacrifice. Unlike your idol Al Gore you won't be flying ANYWHERE ever again.
Um, that's a bit of a puzzle, the whale breathes in air at atmospheric pressure, therefore to a first order approximation the air in its body can't be at much more than that after compression and then surfacing.
I'm not saying its impossible, but I can't see what pressure is driving the nitrogen deep into joints etc, it should all be in equilibrium.
the whole point with bends and SCUBA is that you are breathing high pressure air, and so high pressure nitrogen diffuses into the parts of the body with lower partial pressures of nitrogen, then when you surface the high pressure nitrogen wants to diffuse out again, but can't easily. If the whole lot starts in equilibrium then it all compresses together. This loosely is why duck diving into quite significant depths is safe without a decompression stage.
I wonder how loud they are compared with underwater explosions, volcanoes and seaquakes?
" when a chemical reaction caused a glass glove box to explode"
any idea what that was?
My engineering brain struggles to find a heavy metal reaction that is unexpected. Oh, and enormous sympathy to HM, that's a horrible way to die.
