20 of the world’s most remote islands

If you want to get away from it all – here’s the book for you. Roger Lovegrove has visited – and photographed – 20 of the world’s most remote islands 다운로드. From the far south Atlantic to the viking north, these are forbidding places.

The book is called, Islands Beyond the Horizon, and here are three of those desolate realms 다운로드. You can find all twenty at The Telegraph 다운로드.

Cell phone recording of police is ok – says Washington D.C. police chief, Cathy Lanier

We’ve written a number of stories about police officers interfering with citizens who are trying to record the actions of police in public places 연세대 다운로드. In some cases, cops have arrested citizens for making recordings in public. In others, they’ve seized cell phones and deleted the recordings 주토피아 한글자막 다운로드.

The courts and the Obama administration have both said that these activities violate the Constitution. And at least one police department has gotten the message loud and clear 다운로드.

In a new legal directive first noticed by DCist, Washington DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier explains the constitutional rights of DC citizens and gives her officers detailed instructions for respecting them 설문조사 다운로드. She addresses a number of scenarios that have led to controversy in recent years.

“A bystander has the same right to take photographs or make recordings as a member of the media,” Chief Lanier writes 체인지 다운로드. The First Amendment protects the right to record the activities of police officers, not only in public places such as parks and sidewalks, but also in “an individual’s home or business, common areas of public and private facilities and buildings, and any other public or private facility at which the individual has a legal right to be present.”

High-tech archaeologist uses radar, thermal-imagery, & UAV’s to explore sacred sites

Many Mongolians consider the tomb (of Genghis Khan) an extremely sacred place and believe any desecration of it could trigger a curse that would end the world 다운로드.

“Using traditional archeological methods would be disrespectful to believers,” Albert Yu-Min Lin says. “The ability to explore in a noninvasive way lets us try to solve this ancient secret without overstepping cultural barriers 다운로드.

Lin investigates sites with a high-tech tool kit that leverages photographs taken firsthand on the ground, images gathered from satellites and unmanned aircraft, GPS tracks from expeditions, and geophysical instruments 다운로드. “There are many ways to look under the ground without having to touch it,” he observes. Thermal-imaging systems show what lies below by detecting heat signals and patterns emitted from the Earth 이클립스 플러그인 다운로드. Magnetometry uses the Earth’s magnetic field to pinpoint subterranean clues as microscopic as bacteria in decaying wood. Ground-penetrating radar bounces back images revealing subsurface objects or disturbances 액티브스퀘어 다운로드. Tiny remote wireless sensors collect data from places no human can go.

“These new approaches could benefit all kinds of projects, from gaining a whole new view of regions like Mongolia to tracking animal migrations to mapping the brain,” notes Lin 다운로드. “The real trick is synthesizing the vast amounts of information we collect into something that can be understood. My colleagues and I use visualization techniques to sort, relate, and cross-link billions of individual data bits 연세대 다운로드. We program it all into a file that allows us to re-render it into a digital 3-D world.”

Attack of the mosquito robots – nano insects!

I found these beautiful (and scary) pictures of mosquito robots in Google+ on Rod Borghese’s page abzu 다운로드. I’m positive the bottom three are concept designs made in photoshop, but that first one looks awfully real…

Test your fear of sharks… is it necessary?

 

Do these pictures make your heart beat fast?

Do you feel a terror?

 

 

 

Or, do you feel like getting a closer look 삼성 프린터 펌웨어 다운로드?

Like, it’s nothing more than a big fish?

 

For they are just that, and gentle as well, called Basking Sharks – they are 40-foot long docile giants 다운로드.

Take a look at their mouths to see how they feed, by filtering water.

They are twice as large as Great White Sharks 다운로드.
