Stuff I found interesting or amusing and thought I'd share.
- Could malaria be close to being eliminated? This could have a huge impact on developing nations.
- Good for Bill Burr! File this under when good things happen to good people (who work hard).
- Douglas Adams (RIP) discusses the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
- And speaking of aliens - scientists detect more mysterious radio signals from distant galaxy. And by distant we're talking 3 BILLION light years away. So pump the brakes in the aliens talk. Even if it was from an intelligent source chances are by now something has happened to that civilization.
- Dr Charles Kao, Nobel laureate who revolutionized fiber optics, dies at 84. The modern world owes Dr. Kao tremendous gratitude for his work.
- Interesting - Vladimir Putin's hand picked candidates losing to candidates linked to a party with supposed connections to the mafia? Or are Putin's candidates losing because Russians want to send him a message about his planned pension reforms?
