Egyptian Forces Capture 3 Divers Trying To Cut Undersea Internet Cable 166

Egypt's Naval forces claim they have captured three scuba divers who were trying to cut an undersea Internet cable in the Mediterranean. Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali said in a statement that the divers were caught while “cutting the undersea cable” of Telecom Egypt. Internet services have been disrupted since March 22 in Egypt. From the article: "The statement was accompanied by a photo showing three young men, apparently Egyptian, staring up at the camera in what looks like an inflatable launch. It did not have further details on who they were or why they would have wanted to cut a cable."

Submission + - Nano-Printing With Metallic Glass Reaches 13nm (

Al writes: "A technique called nanoimprint lithography has shown promise for making nanoscale devices, but the molds currently used are either limited in resolution or too fragile. Now researchers at Yale University have demonstrated that these molds can be created from metallic glasses--an advance that could finally make the technique commercially viable. The approach involves pressing a mold into a softer material, often molten silicon or a polymer. Lead researcher Jan Schroers says that metallic-glass molds can be used millions of times to pattern materials, including polymers like those used to make DVDs. The Yale group has used the molds to create three-dimensional microparts such as gears and tweezers, as well as much finer structures. This week in the journal Nature, Schroers's group describes making molds with features as small as 13 nanometers."
