Animal flesh is animal flesh. Folks will have faux-outrage and then go pick up a hamburger and some nuggets as they pat themselves on the back. The phrase isn't "some" meat is murder.

I am so thankful I had the opportunity for a Liberal Arts education. It defined me and how I approach the world every day. Given what is going on in the USA where people readily embrace fake news and just want to believe in things, this type of education should be mandatory at least at the university level.

I was in that part of the world a few years ago. I was totally disgusted at what I saw.....how can a country let its young be abused this way?? They need to put a stop to the sex tourism industry....it is just state sanctioned child abuse....

Article is highly misleading, claims 16,000 people died, a simple Google search proves only 34 people died. Nuclear is expensive because of the bueacracy. Yet, 13,000 die from coal related deaths a year. This year the American tax payer paid 400 million to help people with coal related illness, the energy industry is stacked for Oil and Coal.

The cost of radioactive waste is not taken into account. We just think we can put it underground and it will be allright. If companies have to pay the biljons of dollars in advance the industrie will stop imediately.

Too much emotion and misinformation/lack of information. The next generation of reactors mentioned in the article solves many of the worst problems we have had, safety and waste in particular.

Does the US have one third of the world's population? That would be well over 2 billion, so I think not. Perhaps this is one of the results of 'democracy' that we don't hear much about. Does anyone have a breakdown of the 'crimes' committed? And what I wonder is their share of incarcerated males.

For those making negative comments about the mothers just remember its not all about them its the innocent children that this is for. Sure its far from ideal but having that,contact and knowing where their mother is would allay their fears and questions. Who knows what led their mothers into the situations that have them in jail anyway. I didnt have a perfect homelife or commit crimes but who are we to judge.

Language, like most of human behaviour is just imitation of sounds? Stringing new sentences together is remixing those imitated sounds reinforced by the feedback from parents etc?

They will understand more than one language without any problem, it's true, but they will take in average a few months longer to be able to talk too. Once they get it going, it will be seamless, but it will take a while longer than the babies that were only spoken to in one language.

The worms already have an inherent ability to regenerate and develop a second head if you cut them up. Stop phrasing it like a gossip tabloid. People who don't understand the science are going freak out and spread false and dramatised assumptions.
06/20/2017 at 01:11
What about space radiation?
Those worms already have the mechanisms for regeneration, but maybe the alteration is caused by an alteration in the genetic code caused by ionizing radiation? Would it be possible?
06/20/2017 at 03:23
Does this tell us anything about the environment and mutations? Answer: yes.
And this is how mutations occur... high intensity of stress and these worms look for various ways to survive!

He is brave. He is right. Robots will not really look like humans but rather more like industrial programmed machines the take the boring repetetive labor off the hands of humans. Of course, two things must happen... 1) All advanced robots must have quick-access back doors. 2) All laborers must be retrained in non-robot-like, more humane occupations.
