William Herkewitz, Popular Mechanics: Quantum computers require cool, carefully tended environments that are beyond our current technological capabilities. But Massimiliano Di Ventra, a physicist and computer scientist at the University of California, San Diego, has an entirely different solution. He and a team of his colleagues have just designed and built the first brain-like computer prototype that bypasses certain structural limits of our modern electronics. Called the memcomputer, its the first computer to store and processes info simultaneously. It's announced today in the journal Science Advances. read more

Teens who are incarcerated tend to have substantially worse outcomes later in life than those who avoid serving time for similar offenses, according to a new study co-authored by an MIT scholar. "We find that kids who go into juvenile detention are much less likely to graduate from high school and much more likely to end up in prison as adults," said study co-author Joseph Doyle, an economist at the MIT Sloan School of Management. The research project, which studied the long-term outcomes of tens of thousands of teens in Illinois, shows that, other things being equal, juvenile incarceration lowers high-school graduation rates by 13 percentage points and increases adult incarceration by 23 percentage points. read more

Maggie Ybarra, The Washington Times: FBI agents can't point to any major terrorism cases they've cracked thanks to the key snooping powers in the Patriot Act, the Justice Department's inspector general said in a report Thursday that could complicate efforts to keep key parts of the law operating. Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said that between 2004 and 2009, the FBI tripled its use of bulk collection under Section 215 of the Patriot Act, which allows government agents to compel businesses to turn over records and documents, and increasingly scooped up records of Americans who had no ties to official terrorism investigations. read more


I really cannot believe you wrote that post.

Believe it.

Did you read it before you hit send?

Interesting you put "woman" and not "women." One woman's rape should establish a set policy? Do you apply that logic to hand guns? Or, for instance, the idiot kid that killed himself with a firework? An insignificant (as in number) few should set policy for the millions of others?

Are you suggesting the sign on the door is protecting the "woman" from being raped? Obviously not, right? Have you thought about the possibility that the instance you're referring to could have been different had another man (non-rapist) been present?

Apologies for the numerous questions; just attempting to understand your logic is all. And you if can't believe that I wrote #97 as though you perceive it to be idiocy, you must have appreciated my previous posts on other topics. So that's at least good to know. AFK would have just laughed as considered it par for the course, I would imagine.

If you had a little female, would you want her sharing the same restroom as a male? There is no right or wrong answer.

I don't think there should be an assumption or anything close to it that a little female would be attacked. Little females are traditionally escorted by trusted adults, why would this change? News has skewed some of our perspectives via moral panic, I get that. We shouldn't be allowing this fear to control us, IMO. Yes it's possible, but is it probable? No, no it is not.
