In 2014, the most essential indicators of Earth's changing climate continued to reflect trends of a warming planet, with several markers such as rising land and ocean temperature, sea levels and greenhouse gases -- setting new records. These key findings and others can be found in the State of the Climate in 2014 report released online by the American Meteorological Society (AMS).
Scientists have for the first time networked the brains of monkeys and rats ( a brainet of four interconnected brains is illustrated) to make a living computer that can solve problems. The arrows represent the flow of information through the Brainet from stimulation to the brain to a reward of water.
Open House is filled with sensor-laden products, it detects your presence almost immediately and serves up gee-whiz interactions without prompting. As you pass gadgets, conversation bubbles pop up on the wall, lending the devices a friendly, cartoonist character.
An algorithm has been designed to tell if somebody in a color photo is naked. Isitnude.com launched earlier this month; its demo page invites you to try it out to test its power in nudity detection. You can choose from a selection of images at the bottom of the page, including pics of Vladimir Putin ...

Astronauts on the International Space Station dissolved an effervescent tablet in a floating ball of water, and captured images using a camera capable of recording four times the resolution of normal high-definition cameras. The higher resolution images and higher frame rate videos can reveal more information when used on science investigations, giving researchers a valuable new tool aboard the space station. This footage is one of the first of its kind.
A Californian helicopter firm flew over the site of Apple's Campus 2 last month and shot aerial views of the building and its 175-acre construction site as it prepares to open next year. As the camera pans over the site, it reveals the site's mile-wide circumference and how the structure will fit in with the surrounding Cupertino neighbourhood as well as a number of buildings starting to take shape.
