Think again... The food creation industry has got some very neat tricks to take natural ingredients and make them into very interesting chemicals that are then used in food. And because they are "based on" actual plants and animal byproducts they can disguise how they are described on the labels.

This is very cool. The impact in the third world will be amazing but even outside of that the ability to quickly analyse blood (or other) samples for common things is so handy.

With a great voiceover by the late Carl Sagan - a vision of a possible future. Well worth four minutes of your time.

A novel way of storing electricity - essential for renewable energies (such as solar or wind) so that any generated surplus can be used later (like overnight or when the wind drops).

You grow lettuce! No pesticides; no washing - just clean food. Well done, Toshiba.

Cold fusion is one of the "clean energy" dreams. This article talks about one device that defies explanation that may actually work. But the researchers say it shouldn't - even though they can't fault it. Curious.

Will this mean everything gets plastered in solar cells? Why the hell not!

Personally, I'd like to see less money pumped into the next "Facebook" or whatever - and more on scientific research.

Human-induced climate change is real, people. Time we did some serious work on fixing the problem - us.

I really like this bit at the bottom of the article: "There is no belief, however foolish, that will not gather its faithful adherents who will defend it to the death."

This is pretty cool. I wonder if a male contraceptive is coming down the track somewhere.

Only fiction but if it were true it would exclude a lot of people from a great number of things in society.

There isn't a link to the story here so it is a little doubtful how accurate this is - but the question raised is: where is all the world's plastic going? It should show up in the ocean but it doesn't. Is it making its way into the food chain?
