Some frogs can freeze solid and thaw with no ill effects. Scientists are trying to make it work for human tissue too
After decades of piecemeal progress, the science of cryogenically storing human organs is warming up

Taser Shock Can Impair Memory and Ability to Process Information

New research from a first-of-its-kind human study by Drexel University and Arizona State University reveals that the burst of electricity from a stun gun can impair a person’s ability to remember and process information. In a randomized control trial, participants were subjected to Taser shocks and tested for cognitive impairment. Some showed short-term declines in cognitive functioning comparable to dementia, raising serious questions about the ability of police suspects to understand their rights at the point of arrest.

The research is in Criminology & Public Policy. (full access paywall)

More than two million citizens have been Tased by police as Taser stun guns have become one of the preferred less-lethal weapons by police departments across the United States during the past decade.

Today is the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 14 landing on the moon. And yesterday we lost the last living member of that crew – Edgar Mitchell. I first met Ed when I was at MIT as he was studying there at the same time. Ed was certainly involved in advanced mental century perceptions aka mind reading. Not my bailiwick but I respected him for his persistence and dedication to studying the unknown. I'm sorry to lose another of our Apollo Lunar Pioneers. RIP Ed. 
The suburban Lake Worth resident who was part of the Apollo 14 crew that flew to the moon in 1971, died in hospice late Thursday night.

Ah yes. With GCP's nearline storage (https://cloud.google.com/storage-nearline/) you get "glacier" at-rest pricing but with the same API as regular storage, 3-second restore, and rational restore pricing.
In late 2012, I decided that it was time for my last remaining music CDs to go. Between MacBook Airs and the just-introd…

DURHAM, NH—Delivering an impassioned statement Friday during a campaign stop at Lou’s Diner, Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie reportedly described the jihadist militant group ISIS as a “grave, towering, meaty threat” to the United States while staring intently at a customer’s corned beef sandwich.

Good to see stories like this, but I would imagine the anti-gun lobby will say the Marine had no right to interfere with the bad guy trying to kill the officer.
When he saw an officer’s life in danger, his Marine instincts immediately kicked in. Scott Perkins, a Marine veteran in Bastrop, Texas, was driving through town when he witnessed a suspect allegedly fighting with a sheriff’s deputy and trying to gain control of the officer’s firearm. Not...

Why did Xerox just get a patent on something libraries have essentially done for decades? We take a look for our January Stupid Patent of the Month.
Back when you were a kid, you may (depending on your age) have checked books out of your library using a circulation card. The cards, like the one pictured to the right, would allow the librarian to keep track of the books, who had them, and when they were expected back at the library.
