Conception Protection

My first YouTube video post from Real Time with Bill Maher, quality comedy as usual.

This kind of story makes me happy. One of the ways we need to drive innovation is by encouraging our top young minds into the sciences and engineering. Intel taking this kind of social and civic responsibility to try and advance the youth of our country is a very good thing. I hope more large companies take their lead and give back to the communities that support them.

I love Jon Stewart and whenever I watch The Daily Show I end up laughing hysterically. When you click this link, scroll down and watch the Access Holyland clip. It is incredibly funny.

This is an interesting little story about how the Asian style of baseball is very tough and it is showing up in the success of Japan and Korea in the World Baseball Classic.

Africa is splitting in two. Literally. This freaks me out on a core level.

Robonanny, coming to a Japanese nursing home near you. Of course living to old age in Japan doesn’t happen as often as it used to because they have one of the highest suicide rates in the world and apparently routinely have group suicides.

The leader of the communist party in Russia is blaming the US for bird flu. Wacky, wacky Russians, but if you ever read Stephen King’s The Stand, a little creepy too.

Trivia Bonus: In The Stand, what is the command code to release the virus into the world after it escapes in the US?

Maybe we can bring freedom and democracy to the Mexican people next.
