One step down, two to go. Big thanks to the city for bringing Charlotte one step closer to Google Fiber.

The next time you're prepping for a big exam, don't skip your morning workout. A little activity prior to the test might do you some good:
You've studied hard, had a good night's sleep, eaten a good breakfast, and now you're ready for your big test. You might consider walking to the exam--20 minutes of activity, walking, running, or other exercise, has been shown to boost test scores.

Spooky!
A study in the Netherlands backs up a long-held claim of quantum theory, one that Einstein refused to accept, that objects separated by great distance could affect each other’s behavior.

Good Read, if they can make it that HIV will "leave" the host cells intact, I'm wondering if that just means that they could program human DNA to defend it'self, but can one continue to be a carrier of the disease?

There is a lot going on in the field of quantum physics and quantum technology these days. Dutch scientists have now joined the fray by successfully teleporting information over a distance of 10 feet, exploiting a phenomenon called ‘quantum entanglement.’

Good stuff , thanks for sharing Manuel ... and here is   how they did it, and plans for 2nd experiment.  Do we know the outcome of the 2nd experiment yet ?                                          
 >>  To date, scientists have struggled to use entanglement as a means of communication—it's been achieved but the error rate has been so great that it would be unfeasible as a real-world application. In this new effort, the researchers claim to have solved the error rate problem—they've brought it down to zero percent. They did it, they report, by trapping electrons in diamonds at very low temperatures and shooting them with lasers, resulting in the creation of qubits. The diamonds, the team reports, serve as really tiny prisons, holding the electrons in place. Held as they were, the researchers were able to cause a spin state to exist and then to read it at both locations, which meant that information had been conveyed.

3D Printed Cast #WearableWednesday
http://adafru.it/b111492

“3D-printed cast uses ultrasound to speed healing” on CNET:

A stylish-looking 3D-printed cast for broken bones uses an ultrasonic pulse generator to help stimulate the growth of new bone.

The wonderful thing about new ideas is that they are often spun off into combinations with other ideas into something excitingly different. Take the Cortex 3D-printed cast, designed by Jake Evill. Strong, lightweight and stylish, each cast could be custom-fit to the wearer and allowed the skin to breathe.

The Osteoid cast by designer Deniz Karasahin — winner of a prestigious A’ Design Award — takes the same basic idea of a custom-built 3D-printed cast and refines it. As well as having a snap-together design that can easily be removed, the cast is well ventilated, minimising smell and itching, and waterproof, meaning the patient would not have to worry about getting it wet.

Smoothest espresso in town, fruity with nice tones of chocolate. Perfectly roasted. Super friendly staff and plenty of comfortable seating to work or relax.

Terrible customer service. Will never do business with them. Called in the morning to schedule refrigerator repair service. The first call was fine, they asked basic questions about the appliance, my address and promised to call back for scheduling. Called back within the hour but the technician was extremely rude and unprofessional. I asked a question about their fees (which nobody had mentioned at this point) and the technician got very upset. He said that he was doing me a favor, trying to squeeze me in for later in the day. He mention that maybe I should look for someone cheaper. I told him that I was not concerned about the fee and that I wanted to ask a few questions first to understand their service better. Then I asked him how often they find units with compressor problems and he just lost it. He said that I should call "Advanced Appliance Service" (which I did and had a much better experience) and almost hung up on me.

Nice ambiance, solid bar with good selection of draft beers. The seared tuna salad was great but the Blu Nachos not so much. Good service and plenty of TVs to watch the game.

Horrible wait time. I can understand their practice is busy but they need better scheduling. Why set up appointments so close to each other? Doctor saw us almost one hour after our appointment time. Will not return to this location.
