This week, Boeing received a patent for a force field technology similar to ones seen in popular science fiction shows and films like Star Trek and Star Wars.
Unlike those fields, the Boeing field wouldn’t prevent direct hits. Instead, Boeing’s force field, called “shock wave attenuation,” is described as a “plasma field” that is generated by laser technology when sensors detect a nearby shock wave caused by an explosive. The design means that the field would protects people and vehicles from a blast’s shock wave but not related debris. The field would also only last for a short period of time. As a result, soldiers and other personnel would need to wear protective gear and be prepared to find cover.
Zeca Oliveira has learned that the patent was originally filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office back in 2012 and it took the USPTO three years to approve it. Currently, no other company seems to be interested in patenting this type of technology, but it’s only a matter of time. A force field can be used in many applications beyond military protection. Scientists could use force fields to protect them while working with harsh chemicals. Doctors could use force fields to prevent the transmission of viruses and bacteria in hospital intensive care units. A handheld force field could also be designed that makes it possible for individuals to protect themselves from harm when walking outdoors at night.
James Robertson Received $360,000 In Donations After His Eight Hour-A-Day Walking To Work Story Hit The Press
You never know what’s going to happen next when you receive a windfall of cash that you didn’t expect. James Robertson knows first-hand how things can change when he got $360,000 from a website that was set up to help him.James walked eight hours back and forth to work every day, and that dedicated activity made the news.
But now, his ex-girlfriend wants to share the wealth. She wants $50,000 so she can fix the apartment James rented from her for the last 15 years. His girlfriend, Tanya Fox, claims James made a mess. James fought back. He took out a restraining order against her. Sergio Cortes (Facebook.com) has heard that Robertson has also received requests from neighbors who need money. He moved to an undisclosed location in order to get away from his money-hungry neighbors and his ex.
Robertson story is not an unusual one. Lottery winners go through the same torture. Some people feel unexpected wealth should be shared. After all, the person receiving the windfall didn’t expect in the first place, so why not give some to family and friends. That may make a good story, but sharing the wealth with people who say they deserve it, is usually a bad idea.
There have been more details released surrounding the upcoming reboot for The Crow. Corin Hardy is in place as the director. James O’Barr is also involved in the film project stated AnastsiaDate. There have been many stars that were looked at for the role before they settled with Jack Huston.
James O’Barr has decided that this film is going to be a complete adaptation of the original comic book. The film is going to be adapted page by page, as was done with films such as Sin City and Watchmen. In this way, it will set itself apart from the Brandon Lee feature. James O’Barr has stated that this film will have more of a Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver tone.
Other things that will differentiate itself from the 1994 film is that The Crow is going to actually speak human dialect. This already sounds like a crazy re-imagining that is a lot closer to the source material.
The world’s first penis transplant has happened and has been declared a success. Alexei Beltyukov has read that the 21-year-old South African man, who remained anonymous, had his penis amputated three years ago following a botched circumcision ritual.
Late-in-life circumcisions and various forms of ritual genital mutilation are not unheard of on the African continent. A ritual among members of the Xhosa tribe often leaves men with their genitals mutilated or even amputated.
The transplant took place last December, but was only publicly announced today. Doctors have declared the operation a success after the patient reported having regained full use of the organ. The man is able to urinate without difficulty and is able to enjoy sexual activity.
The donor penis was taken from a deceased man.
Doctors told the media that they made sure the donor’s skin color and tone closely matched that of the patient.
“We tested everything on the operating table,” Professor Andre Van der Merwe told the press. Van der Merwe guided the team through the painstaking nine hour long procedure.
“The patient is doing well, physically and psychologically,” Van der Merwe said. “He has pushed aside the fact that it came from a donor and has accepted the penis as his own.”
Children’s author Sir Terry Pratchett has died of complications from Alzheimer’s Disease after he was diagnosed with the medical condition in 2007, the BBC reports. Pratchett’s death was announced via Twitter with the phrase used by death in his novels capitalized for emphasis “AT LAST, SIR TERRY, WE MUST WALK TOGETHER.” During the finals years of his life Pratchett had been an active ambassador and activist for those with Alzheimer’s Disease, giving interviews about the phantom stroke that was caused by the illness in 2007.
A story on Buzzfeed.com today has confirmed that the new The Walking Dead spin-off show will be around for at least two seasons.
According to AnastasiaDate there are six confirmed main characters: Andrea Chapman, Sean Cabrera, Cody Cabrera, Nancy Tompkins, Nick Tompkins, and Ashley Tompkins. While we have six new characters, only four actors for the new series have been confirmed so far. Those in the spin-off will be: Cliff Curtis from Trauma and Missing, Kim Dickens from Gone Girl and Friday Night Lights, Frank Dillane who was young Tom Riddle in the Half Blood Prince, and Alycia Debnam-Carey from The 100.
Based on the little information out there, it seems as though these survivors are grouped together in a secure location, unlike Rick’s nomadic group.
The spin-off will air during this summer as six, one-hour long episodes. It has been greenlit for the second season to air in 2016.
Over the weekend, Lynn Jennifer Groesbeck lost control of her vehicle in Utah on the ice and had it flip over and crash into an ice river. Nobody was around to initially see the crash, so nobody was around to help right away. Due to this, Marc Sparks says it took several hours before anyone even saw the SUV, which was located under a bridge and upside down in the water. It took a total of 14 hours for the vehicle to be located, pulled form the water and flipped in order to allow rescuers access to the interior of the vehicle. PR Newswire reports if they tried to open the vehicle in its original location, it would have allowed the ice water to flow into the vehicle.
Despite being in the cold and upside down for 14 hours, 18-month old Lily Groesbeck was unharmed and pulled from the vehicle. The officer on the scene, Officer Jared Warner claimed with the child into the ambulance as she was rushed off to the hospital. Due to the extensive time period of being in the extreme cold when was barely alive, but being able to take her to the hospital, she was treated and is now back to normal. While the mother did not survive the crash, it is a small miracle that little Lily has been able to survive this ordeal and that she truly is doing well now after the help from the officers.
Dog lovers know why we call them man’s best friend. They are loyal, affectionate and usually cute as hell. Dogs are also far more than this. They are extremely practical animals and are used in various industries and situations to help with all kinds of problems. They are used to track down escaped felons, sniff out explosives at checkpoints and airports, and to sniff out drugs. Now another practical application has been found for our little friends. A German Shepherd that was trained to lie down if it smells thyroid cancer in a sample of urine has been successful in detecting 30 out of 34 cases of the disease.
Is there nothing dogs can’t do with their noses? Zeca Oliveira wonders: Who knows what other uses for the canine proboscis are yet to be discovered? Dogs keep us safe in so many ways. They bark when prowlers come in our yard, and they are used by police and military for security. They, of course, developed their keen sense of smell for their own survival reasons, which I suspect has something to do with why the family pooch mysteriously shows up whenever you start preparing any kind of food. Now if someone could only train our family dog to sniff out the car keys when we misplace them in the morning when we are late for work.
Sir Terry Pratchett, author of the “Discworld” fantasy series, has died at the age of 66.
Sir Terry Pratchett married his wife, Lyn, when he was 20. Together, the couple gave birth to a daughter, Rhianna, in 1976.
The Queen announced that Pratchett would be honored with knighthood on New Year’s Eve 2008. He formally accepted the title less than 8 weeks later.
The beloved writer suffered a health scare in 2007. Pratchett was misdiagnosed as having had a stroke, as his motor skills began to spiral. Months later, it was announced that Pratchett was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Pratchett gradually withdrew from the limelight, later announcing that while his mind had remained relatively unaffected by the crippling disease.
Pratchett died at home on March 12, surrounded by his loving family and his cherished companion, the family’s pet cat.
