Scientific Mysteries

http://snipurl.com/22rb87w

5 of the biggest mysteries facing modern science today. I have to say that No.3 in this list is one that I've been wondering a lot about in the last few years. Francis Crick himself the co-discoverer of DNA raised this question some time ago saying that the DNA structures in even the simplest single-cell creature are too complex to have just come into being 'by accident'..

Mitt's Income v Your Income

|
http://snipurl.com/22lw54e

"Mitt Romney released his 2010 tax return on Monday. His total income for the year was listed as $21.6 million, more than one-half of which came from capital gains. How does that stack up against your income?"

This is what it calculated for me

"It would take you 896 years 8 days 5 hours 7 minutes and 21 seconds to make what Mitt made in 2010."

As seen on Horizon - "Is Seeing Believing?" (BBC2)

http://snipurl.com/22jrvig

"One major complaint about reading an eBook is the experience; holding an iPad is just not the same as holding a book and thumbing through the pages. This complaint may lose some of its weight if the folks at the KAIST Institute of Information Technology Convergence can get their patented Smart E-Book Interface Prototype out of the lab and into the wild."

"An anonymous career banker inside Goldman Sachs opened a twitter account (@GSElevator) with the intention of revealing the hilarious banter that takes place in the privacy of the GS elevators. Since then, the account has evolved to include things overheard on trading floors, bullpens, lobbies and bars. Some of the conversations involve more than one person, and the participants are distinguishable by their number (#1, #2, #3)."

19th Century American Slum Pics

|
http://snipurl.com/22i5tfa

"The slumdogs of New York: Remarkable images open a window into the squalor and deprivation endured by immigrant families in an unrecognisable 19th century America."

"It is a window into the squalor, deprivation and poverty of a bygone age.
This city of sweat shops, shanty towns and slums is an unrecognisable New York, captured, in black and white, as the 19th century wound to a close. Newly arrived immigrants slept 12 to a room, while street children roamed the alleys and tenement blocks of a Third World downtown Manhattan."

Body Language - Lies & Lying

|
http://www.aquiziam.com/bodylies.html

"Lies! Humans use them so often that more than half the time they don’t even realize what they’re doing.
Lies to protect, to persecute, to reassure, to undermine, to harm and to heal are everywhere. Are all lies are bad?Is it so wrong to tell a person that they’re prettier than they are – if you love them? Still, some lies are pure evil – just think about some of the racist hatred spread by the Nazis. However, no matter what kind of lies they are - they are still deception."
