Of 28 examiners with the FBI Laboratory’s microscopic hair comparison unit, 26 overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far,

The cases include those of 32 defendants sentenced to death. Of these defendants, 14 have already been executed or died in prison.

... findings that confirm long-suspected problems with subjective, pattern-based forensic techniques — like hair and bite-mark comparisons — that have contributed to wrongful convictions in more than one-quarter of 329 DNA-exoneration cases since 1989.
Forensic hair matches were overstated in many cases heard before 2000, including those of 32 defendants sentenced to death, the FBI and the Justice Department acknowledged after a review.

As 3D printing technology improves, we’re seeing the gap between what’s possible with less expensive home printers and industrial-level machines grow narrow

The night was over. The sun, a fat ball of light, was already glimmering above the water surface.

The squid emerged from the grasses and corals where they had been feeding. Shoals formed in small groups and clusters, eventually combining into a community a hundred strong.

Court me. Court me.

See my weapons!

I am strong and fierce.

Stay away! Stay away! Sie is mine! ...

It was the ancient cephalopod language, a language of complex skin patterns, body posture, texture, words of sex and danger and food; and Sheena shoaled and sang with joy.

This story is from "Sheena 5" by Stephen Baxter, which stars a squid with enhanced intelligence working for NASA: http://www.vondanmcintyre.com/squids/Baxter-Sheena5.html

Some of #tedscousins  are really, really old.

The Makapansgat pebble, or the pebble of many faces, (ca. 3,000,000 BP) is a 260-gram reddish-brown jasperite cobble with natural chipping and wear patterns that make it look like a crude rendition of a human face.

The pebble is interesting in that it was found some distance from any possible natural source, associated with the bones of Australopithecus africanus in a cave in Makapansgat, South Africa.

Though it is definitely not a manufactured object, it has been suggested that some australopithecine, might have recognized it as a symbolic face, in possibly the earliest example of symbolic thinking or aesthetic sense in the human heritage, and brought the pebble back to the cave.

This would make it a candidate for the oldest known manuport #tedscousin  
 
Three-million-year-old Makapansgat Pebble from South Africa. Perhaps the most ancient art object in the world. 
Is definitely not a manufactured object, it has been suggested that some australopithecine, might have recognized it as a symbolic face, in possibly the earliest example of symbolic thinking or aesthetic sense in the human heritage, and it is said to have been carried over a distance of four kilometers by Australopithecus and brought the pebble back to the cave.

Oh, is the problem "taken care of" now?  I hadn't heard.  I thought there was now this Islamic State rearing its head as a result of the whole power vacuum over there.

Introduction
Born in the 60's. Raised in the 70's. Let loose in the 80's. Worked as a Nomad through the '80s, '90s, and '00s . Settled in Denmark with my wife in 2008. We've since added a cat (now two) and 12 chickens. We live the hermit life in the countryside outside Copenhagen, Denmark.

I try to live my life in such a way that I do the least harm I can to the people around me while trying to add value to the world. I'm not particularly greedy, nor am I driven into pursuit of fame, or power, or renown.  I am driven by imagination. I am driven by compassion. I am driven by a combination of "What can we make to make things better?" and "What is over the next hill?". I am driven by curiosity.  I am driven by "How?". Most of all I am driven by "Why!?"

My interests are varied. My dreams and imaginings are vast and complex. I know I am just a speck of life on a speck of a planet in a wholly undistinguished part of the multiverse and  I know that, while I may never see those dreams achieved, I have become a much better me than many expected or allowed for.

Meanwhile, I am frantically looking for a way to open the console on this thing we call life. I've a couple of commands I'd like to run after I load an early save game...
-----
I will praise you or I will flay you, but I will never flatter you with empty compliments..
----------
Changing beloved symbols to reflect ideas which are anathematic to the core ideals the symbol represents - but are also present in the society that holds the symbol dear - is a sure fire way to get people's attention.
----------
Balkanization of the US, a move toward ever more feudal systems of security and defense, entrenchment of belief over science, imposition of moral codes which limit rather than expand rights. This is not the reality I signed up for.
----------
Bragging rights
Well, I've made it this far....
