The AMBER alert system is an impressive deployment of modern tech: the latest updates on missing youngsters can be grabbed through RSS, website widgets, email, SMS, and a variety of other methods.

I think these groups are also saying this should be free game as well and I disagree. Hence the 250,000 cables. WHich was bullshit… Society needs some people in the know and some people not. These folks, these sheep believe that all information should be accessible. BS. And if they truly believe it then they should have no problem with me gathering information for public distribution.”
For example: How might the EM Drive get around that pesky conservation-of-momentum problem? Eagle works says the microwave field generated in the drive’s cavity could be pushing against quantum vacuum virtual plasma. “The problem is there’s no such thing,” says Davis.

On my last night in Vegas, I meet up with a few people on the patio of a Fremont Street bar called Park.

Already Brooks is feeling a sentimental sort of pride. “Even if what we’re doing doesn’t succeed to everyone’s wildest dreams, and I actually believe it will,” she says, “downtown has already changed.”
