even IF others have been doing some variation on this technique, kudos to him for coming up with it, winning a monetary award for it, AND making it available to others to benefit their society in many ways than just being able to store their next meal for a day/week.

Genetically Engineering Babies a Moral Obligation, Says Ethicist
Posted by timothy on Saturday August 18,@08:23AM 
from the perfect-babies-only dept.
Hugh Pickens writes
"The Telegraph reports that Oxford Professor Julian Savulescu, an expert in practical ethics, says that creating so-called designer babies could be considered a 'moral obligation' as it makes them grow up into 'ethically better children' and that we should actively give parents the choice to screen out personality flaws in their children such as potential alcoholism, psychopathy and disposition to violence as it means they will then be less likely to harm themselves and others. 'Surely trying to ensure that your children have the best, or a good enough, opportunity for a great life is responsible parenting?' writes Savulescu, editor-in-chief of the Journal of Medical Ethics. 'So where genetic selection aims to bring out a trait that clearly benefits an individual and society, we should allow parents the choice. To do otherwise is to consign those who come after us to the ball and chain of our squeamishness and irrationality.' Savulescu says that we already routinely screen embryos and fetuses for conditions such as cystic fibrosis and Down's syndrome and couples can test embryos for inherited bowel and breast cancer genes. 'Whether we like it or not, the future of humanity is in our hands now. Rather than fearing genetics, we should embrace it. We can do better than chance.'"

And here I thought my New York apartment was small! Christian Schallert lives in a 258 square foot space and maximizes the hell out it by hiding everything behind walls, cabinets and clever design.

THIS is definitely something I didn't see coming but definitely caught my eye when I saw the notification at the top middle of my 'everything-ME' page! ....and then G@@GLE poked my eye !  what are they thinking?  The only person more a googler than myself would be a programmer in my opinion.  I dare say I've missed the boat! there MUST be, absolutely MUST be something I'm missing here.  WHERE can I find a webpage that will let ME CONFIGURE what I want to see? on a SINGLE webpage!  not a boatload of apps on a mobile device! not numerous webpages or separate webapps! but a single webpage that does it flawlessly like iGoogle!  WHERE I ASK YOU !? WHERE ?!?!?!?!
