Well, part of that is likely because it would be a public relations nightmare trying to do trials with fetal stem cells.
... only in America. It is less of a issue in Europe, and a non-issue in China.
Actually you cannot do fetal stem cells research in Italy (and it is a good thing).
Air hockey is much funnier.
Dismissed in a single experiment. Cool.
"It took Apple more than four years to fix Siri's responses to questions about abortion services, and yet the company didn't seem to have any problem programming Siri to search for prostitutes and Viagra."
yeah, methink that the political climate surrounding abortion is far more explosive than prostitution , and some people might have exploded in anger far more quickly at women being helped getting an abortion (sorry "murder baby!") than at the other keyword. So it does not surprise me in the least.

Some people that I know (Italy) helped providing a network infrastructure for a hospital in Angola.
... TED conference suggests burning the 99% U235 that is currently considered waste (currently only U238 is burned)...
In fact it is exactly the opposite.
Why not covering Maven? It's got a totally different way of building applications, together with some concepts like artifacts, dependency, artifact repository, that are not present in other build systems.
I think that it is worth at least a mention.
