Inside the August Mensa Bulletin: Your answers to the question, "Do you ever feel like you have to hide your smarts?"

We asked. You delivered. And so did Mensan illustrator Jonathan Moore with this month's cover art. Who hasn't feigned reading a textbook in class but secretly had their favorite comic book stashed inside?

Chinese Scientists Genetically Modify Human Embryos

"I believe this is the first report of CRISPR/Cas9 applied to human pre-implantation embryos and as such the study is a landmark, as well as a cautionary tale," says George Daley, a stem-cell biologist at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. "Their study should be a stern warning to any practitioner who thinks the technology is ready for testing to eradicate disease genes."

This off-topic tantrum is neither stimulating nor intellectual. You are a boring snark Ms. B.J.,  blocking you so I no longer have to suffer your infantile selfish whining.

Watch the first ever video of a laser beam moving through thin air

The six-nanosecond-long clip was shot at 20 billion frames per second, detecting single photons at a time — the smallest amount of light possible.

Hairsplitter Hawthorne: it's not Mensa's article. They simply quoted its headline. The article's headline reads: "Watch the first ever video of a laser beam moving through thin air.. The six-nanosecond-long clip was shot at 20 billion frames per second." Yes indeed though, it's obvious that the video itself is 25 seconds long.

Check out this beautifully redesigned version of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series

"The Harry Potter books are so magical so mysterious and so adventurous. Basically these books are on the border of childhood. Therefore my goal was to redesign them with such illustrations that able to show this extraordinary atmosphere of the books. I started to experiment with interactive illustrations what not distract attention from the plot, but add to the story."

*Finally, a New Clue to Solve the CIA’s Mysterious Kryptos Sculpture *

"To honor the 25th anniversary of the Wall’s demise and the artist’s 69th birthday this year, Sanborn has decided to reveal a new clue to help solve his iconic and enigmatic artwork. It’s only the second hint he’s released since the sculpture was unveiled in 1990 and may finally help unlock the fourth and final section of the encrypted sculpture, which frustrated sleuths have been struggling to crack for more than two decades."

Physicists Claim Universe 'Rings' Like Crystal Glass

Physicist (and Mensan!) Dr. Harry Ringermacher is in the news for a recently published paper wherein he and a colleague concluded that "the speed of the expansion of the universe has varied at least seven times during its 13.8 billion year history."

"'We found that the universe has been wiggling during its expansion and that 7 such “cycles” or oscillations have occurred since the beginning of time,' Ringermacher, a USM adjunct professor of physics and the paper’s lead author, told me. 'Each wiggle or cycle consists of a slow-down, followed by a speed-up, followed by a slow-down.'"
Not unlike the fading tones of a ringing crystal goblet, the spacetime continuum andthe universe itself may be oscillating through billions of years of cosmic time, say two U.S. physicists. In a paper recently published in The Astronomical Journal, physicists Harry Ringermacher and Lawrence Mead at the University of Southern Mississippi [...]

Weird irony that one co-author has the German surname "Ringermacher" , eh?

Scientists have discovered nature’s newest strongest material — and it comes from sea snails

"All hail the mighty mollusk.

In a study set to come out this month in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, British researchers announced that the teeth of shelled, aquatic creatures called limpets are the strongest biological material on Earth, overtaking the previous record-holder, spider silk."

Shakespeare Folio Discovered in French Public Library

"The book was discovered this fall by librarians at a public library in St.-Omer, near Calais, who were sifting through its collections for an exhibition on English-language literature. The title page and other introductory material were torn off, but Rémy Cordonnier, the director of the library’s medieval and early modern collection, suspected that the book — cataloged as an unexceptional old edition — might in fact be a first folio."
