A very troubling development in Russia with this new law passed and signed by V. Putin. Do you think as some do that this is a regression to old Soviet ways where the Moscow Russian Orthodox Patriarchate was the only official religion allowed to operate?

A new law prohibits religious gatherings in non-registered areas, which could include private homes, and restricts promoting religion on the Internet.

More research and trials will have to be done, but it showed good results on lab-grown Alzheimer's Disease triggers.

Hmmm....

What ARE the implications for the transport of water the scientist was referring to at the end of the video?

http://www.gizmag.com/fourth-state-of-water/42999/?li_source=LI&li_medium=default-widget
You already know that water can have three states of matter: solid, liquid and gas. But scientists at the Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) have discovered that when it's put under extreme pressure in small spaces, the life-giving liquid can exhibit a strange fourth state known as tunneling.

I'd certainly be interested. Although I believe there is also software that can do the same on the market, if you know were to look.

The USA's National Gallery of Art has a great collection of Dutch paintings you can view online. They are grouped by landscapes, genre subjects, etc. and you can zoom in for large detail on your monitor easily. So, if you like the Dutch at this time period, treat yourself.....
