For Ultimate, Photography, Research and random ramblings…

Bilingual news today…

Science:
-Metamorphosis key to creating stable walking robots. “We may now need to examine new ways to allow robots to automatically adapt their hardware, not just their software, if we are to achieve higher levels of performance.” Journal reference: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1015390108

Medicine:
-Ice cream for cancer sufferers. Actually the page in Portuguese contains much more information about this. It lets me think of what kind of news reporters does euronews have??? And the following news is also in Portuguese: It simply says that the Cubans found a vaccine for lung cancer. (I don’t believe them)
-Cientistas cubanos anunciam desenvolvimento de vacina contra o cancro do pulmão. O que é curioso é que eles não publicaram nada internacionalmente (ou nacionalmente para este caso) que possa ser utilizado para testar esta dita solução. Para além do mais o título do Publico é enganador. Eles não desenvolveram nenhuma vacina! Não no sentido publicamente esperado. Eles desenvolveram um método de impedir as células cancerígenas de se desenvolverem á sua velocidade plena. O que dá aos pacientes já terminais uns meses mais de vida.

Society:
-Southwest Airlines pilot holds plane for murder victim’s family. It’s a great story that shows some heart in the middle of these heartless flight companies and ridiculous airport security measures. Sadly I could not confirm the story elsewhere either than the internet.
-European Heritage Label. Something to look into, in the video you can see Coimbra, Portugal and some students.
-Housing 9 billion won’t take techno-magic. Just proper distribution of resources. (and stopping to war about them)
And again in Portuguese:
-Fair play financeiro vai obrigar clubes a baixar salários e transferências. Acho muito bem. É uma vergonha o que esses gajos ganham e gastam no futebol.

Economy:
German 2010 growth fastest since reunification. That’s nice to hear… too bad about Portugal though.

And that’s it for now… check back next weekend.
