SAN FRANCISCO, Kalifornia (PNN) - April 20, 2014 - Here at DVICE, graphene is kind of a big deal. The element allows for innovation as far reaching as 2D computers, neon buildings with solar paint, and bandages that can help shield from infection. Frankly, it’s almost like the stuff is fictional. Luckily for the human race, it isn’t, and we’ve just discovered something pretty cool: flowing salt water over it generates electricity.
WUPPERTAL, Germany (PNN) - April 18, 2014 - I have some news that might be kind of hard to hear: you are never going to become Spider Man. Radioactive spiders don't exist, humans can't naturally stick to walls with their hands and feet, and a person trying to swing from a skyscraper with "webbing" would probably rip his arms right out of their sockets.
LOS ANGELES, Kalifornia (PNN) - April 3, 2014 - Buried under miles of ice, astronomers have detected a liquid water sea on one of Saturn's moons, Enceladus. The sea is about the size of Lake Superior and it touches Enceladus' silicate core, which means it could have minerals dissolved in it that are necessary for life.
LONDON, England (PNN) - March 30, 2014 - A low-cost drone has been built with the help of a 3D printer. Engineers from University of Sheffield in the Fascist United Kingdom (FUK) have created and tested a low-coast unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) using a new and cheap technique. The aircraft is 1.5 meters wide.
NEW YORK (PNN) - March 24, 2014 - Amid revelations that the National Security Agency has the ability to intercept data going between servers and other computers, tech giant Google now says it will encrypt all messages sent through its Gmail email service to prevent prying eyes from looking at private messages.
TEL AVIV, Israel (PNN) - March 10, 2014 - Israel is finally ready to combat shoulder-launched missiles and they’re going to do it with lasers.
Israel’s Ministry of Defense announced Wednesday that SkyShield, developed by Israeli defense contractor Elbit Systems, had successfully completed testing and is certified for commercial use to combat the threat of man-portable surface-to-air missile systems by combining advanced laser detection and disruption technologies.
Very interesting and informative video on an AR-15 that is legal in the State of New York, which with the passage of the unconstitutional SAFE Act has attempted to make all firearms illegal, thereby attacking the Second Amendment protections guaranteed to all Amerikans (sic). With thanks to Rich and the Gun Shop at MacGregors in Lake Luzerne, New York.
NEW YORK (PNN) - February 27, 2014 - The world of television and modern media has become a tool of de-evolution, propaganda and social control. Since the reign of Edward Bernays and the rise of the Tavistock Institute in the early 20th Century, nearly unlimited resources have been applied to understanding how to manipulate the human psyche through television and other forms of mass media. What we have today is an increasingly sophisticated full-spectrum assault on free will and psychological well-being, and we have come to a point where it is no longer even necessary for media institutions to attempt to hide their blatant work of manipulating public opinion, manufacturing consent, and creating winners and losers in the minds of the already brainwashed public.
HOUSTON, Texas (PNN) - January 22, 2014 - A mystery rock on Mars that suddenly appeared in front of the NASA Opportunity rover may look like a tasty donut, but it is like nothing ever seen on the Martian surface before.
