5 US States Poised to Promote Bitcoin-Friendly Regulation

Posted by in category: bitcoin

US state flags

Given the recent critiques of New York and its proposed framework for bitcoin businesses, many of the law’s opponents are no doubt hoping the state and its regulators will alter the bill during its now extended comment period.

After all, New York’s BitLicense proposal, once approved, could prove influential at shaping wider US bitcoin regulation, a fact recently underscored by New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) superintendent Ben Lawsky in an interview with CoinDesk.

What Sci-Fi Movies Get Right and Wrong About Time Travel

Posted by in category: time travel

Time Travel in Movies_graphic

In movies, time travel methods are mostly explained along the lines of “something something plutonium something wormhole.” But physicists do have some idea of methods that might allow for actual time travel—though they might not necessarily prevent you from killing your own grandfather.

One trope in time travel science fiction is slightly plausible, if physically impossible—traveling faster than the speed of light. The crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise did this in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, by using the sun’s gravitational pull to accelerate their spaceship to super-light speed. If it were possible to travel faster than light (Einstein calculated it would take an infinite amount of power), it is theoretically possible for signals to be sent back in time; it’s questionable if the same method could work with people.

Affordable 3D printing: New materials, new horizons

Posted by in category: 3D printing

By Adrian Mars — ZDNet

Cheap 3D printers have had a bad rap. Seen as toys for enthusiasts, most work by squeezing melted plastic filament through a thin nozzle (Fused Filament Fabrication, or FFF), producing what is often dismissed as tat.

The reality is far more exciting: these devices are revolutionising the world of product development, are set to educate a generation and are home to some of the most innovative developments in the 3D printing world.

The Globalized Smartification and Changing for the Better Via Simultaneous: Activated and Deactivated Kaisen!

The Globalized Smartification and Changing for the Better Via Simultaneous: Activated and Deactivated Kaisen!

We Activate Kaisen and We Deactivate Kaisen

Chiefly, this brief post is about the pictorial I composed here.

Pay great attention to this proprietary image. I greatly value Japanese execs and sages but they focus only on throughputting(*) the Known Inputs Into Desirable Outputs inside their premises, without considering the Non-Existential and Existential Risk of the External Environment (outside their industrial facade) at large as we do in the White Swan’s Tranformative and Integrative Risk Management Services.

Open Source SynBio?

Posted by in categories: biological, biotech/medical, genetics, open source, posthumanism, transhumanism
If the controversy over genetically modified organisms (GMOs) tells us something indisputable, it is this: GMO food products from corporations like Monsanto are suspected to endanger health. On the other hand, an individual’s right to genetically modify and even synthesize entire organisms as part of his dietary or medical regimen could someday be a human right.
The suspicion that agri-giant companies do harm by designing crops is legitimate, even if evidence of harmful GMOs is scant to absent. Based on their own priorities and actions, we should have no doubt that self-interested corporations disregard the rights and wellbeing of local producers and consumers. This makes agri-giants producing GMOs harmful and untrustworthy, regardless of whether individual GMO products are actually harmful.

EmDrive Is an Engine That Breaks the Laws of Physics and Could Take Us to Mars

Posted by in category: space travel

By Jason Abbruzzese

Mars

An experimental engine is gaining acceptance among scientists, and could introduce a new era of space travel — it only had to break a law of physics to do so.

The picture, below, is of the EmDrive. It uses electricity to generate microwaves, which then bounce around in a closed space and generate thrust. The drive does not need propellant, an important part of current space-travel mechanics.

Funding Request

Posted by in categories: astronomy, business, cosmology, defense, disruptive technology, general relativity, physics, quantum physics, science, space, space travel

Astrophysicists like Robert Nemiroff have shown, using Hubble photographs, that quantum foam does not exist. Further, the famous string theorists, Michio Kaku, in his April 2008 Space Show interview stated that string theories will require hundreds of years before gravity modification is feasible.

Therefore the need to fund research into alternative propulsion technologies to get us into space cheaper and quicker. We can be assured that such space technologies will filter down into terrestrial technologies.

This video explain how this can be achieved and the benefits of doing so. The two organizations that are actively engaged in this endeavor are Propulsion Physics, Inc. and the Xodus One Foundation.

Don’t Get Hacked at Black Hat and DefCon

Posted by in category: cybercrime/malcode

By Neil J. Rubenking — PC
Black Hat 2014 Venue
The trainings component of the 2014 Black Hat USA conference in Las Vegas has already begun. Press folk aren’t invited for trainings, but SecurityWatch will be there to cover the briefings Wednesday and Thursday. The briefings can be shocking. In past years, researchers revealed a technique to pwn any iOS device using a gimmicked charger, described a technique for mining your Twitter feed to create convincing phishing emails, and demonstrated an Android weakness that would allow hackers to Trojanize an Android app undetectably. And those were all part of the relatively sedate Black Hat; things get even hairier at the wild and woolly DefCon that follows.

The world’s best hackers flock to these conferences, people who live and breathe security and hacking. They don’t stop trying to hack all the things just because they’re at a conference. In fact, DefCon features a “Wall of Sheep” to publicly shame any attendees careless enough to get hacked. If you’re attending, you’ll want to crank up your paranoia and be as careful as possible.

Only children can fully appreciate a life-saving truth – but they cannot spread it

Posted by in category: geopolitics

Three life-saving truths are shunned by all grownups to date:

T 1 – The “Mandela Planet” can be implemented to date

Everyone is aware that planet-wide elections are no problem to hold in our time. The resulting world constitution will contain a safeguard that protects the status quo of the privileged countries for a limited length of time in the footsteps of the South African constitution. So the world constitution poses no risk to the mighty while war and cruelty suddenly are a thing of the past.

T 2 – An “Offer of Reunification to Israel” can be made by Germany to date
