Posted by Bryan Treadway on Monday, September 30, 2013, In : Wierd Science News 


Now folks who struggle to remember passwords or those who have to carry access cards can avoid this hassle and wear a temporary tattoo on their forearm or wrist.

These “epidermal electronics” allow users to take advantage of an incredibly resilient patch of digital sensors. A tiny patch allows them to be a walking “authentication token”.

These tiny tattoos are also capable of detecting health data such as heart activity, muscle movements, hydration levels and body temperature. And...

Americans warned bank 'bail-ins' coming

Posted by Bryan Treadway on Monday, September 30, 2013, In : US News 


WASHINGTON – With the United States facing a $17 trillion debt and an acidic debate in Washington over raising that debt limit on top of a potential government shutdown, Congress could mimic recent European action to let banks initiate a “bail-in” to blunt future failures, experts say.

Previously the federal government has taken taxes from consumers, or borrowed the money, to hand out to troubled banks. This could be a little different, and could allow banks to reach directly into ...

Man Barks at Police Dog and He’s Facing Prison Because of It

Posted by Bryan Treadway on Monday, September 30, 2013, In : US News 


There’s a saying in journalism that when a dog bites a man, it’s not news, but when a man bites a dog, it’s news.

So when a man barks at a police dog — and gets charged with “inciting chaos” — and the police dog’s name is actually “Chaos”…you get the idea.

James Paul Andrews, 26, of Cranberry Township, Pa., was allegedly “barking, hissing and growling” at Chaos after he was stopped at a drunk-driving checkpoint around 2:40 a.m. Sept. 15, the dog’s handler, Evan...

Top MIT scientist: Newest UN climate report is ‘hilariously’ flawed

Posted by Bryan Treadway on Monday, September 30, 2013, In : Wierd Science News 


Not all scientists are panicking about global warming — one of them finds the alarmism “hilarious.”

A top climate scientist from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology lambasted a new report by the UN’s climate bureaucracy that blamed mankind as the main cause of global warming and whitewashed the fact that there has been a hiatus in warming for the last 15 years.

“I think that the latest IPCC report has truly sunk to level of hilarious incoherence,” Dr. Richard Lindzen tol...

On the eve of destruction, a government spending spree

Posted by Bryan Treadway on Monday, September 30, 2013, In : US News 


As Congress battles back and forth over spending and whether or not we’ll even be able to keep the lights on in Washington, government agencies have been busy running out and spending like mad to use up all the remaining cash in their budgets so they don’t lose it for next year.

This past week, the Department of Veterans Affairs bought $562,000 worth of artwork.

In a single day, the Agriculture Department spent $144,000 on toner cartridges.

Conservatives join push to roll back mandatory prison sentences

Posted by Bryan Treadway on Monday, September 30, 2013, In : US News 




A grassroots effort to roll back mandatory prison sentences -- based on such conservative principles as less government and personal responsibility -- appears to be gaining momentum by winning changes in several states and following a similar trend in Washington.

The effort is being led in part by the Texas Public Policy Foundation, which spearheaded efforts in 2007 to reform its home state’s criminal justice policy.

Those efforts, in turn, led several years ago to the foundation starti...

The number of Americans giving up their citizenship has rocketed this year - partly, it's thought, because of a new tax law that is frustrating many expats.

The number of expatriates renouncing their US citizenship surged in the second quarter of 2013, compared with the same period the year before - 1,131 cases to 189 in 2012. It's still a small proportion of the estimated six million Americans abroad, but it's a significant rise.

Will US Policy On Syria Bring About The Genocide Of Syria's Christians?

U.S. policy towards Syria is bafflingly inconsistent. If U.S. leaders are so concerned about regimes slaughtering thousands of their own people, did they notice what just happened in Egypt?

If they are so exercised over about weapons of mass destruction, are they aware that Israel has two hundred nuclear warheads, with delivery systems? Will American warships in the region be making those other stops on their liberating mission?
