Visualize: Garbage Into Oil

[MIT TechReview 14.05.03]
The recipe for making crude oil is relatively simple: combine the remains of ferns, jellyfish, and dinosaurs; cover with sediment; bury deep in the earth's crust; and apply pressure for millions of years--give or take an epoch. Or if you're pressed for time, run some turkey parts or used tires through the thermal process owned by Changing World Technologies of West Hempstead, NY. Our animated illustration shows how this company is trying to best Mother Nature.,2g7r,4rw,jiph,dtto,cm8z,cd4n

Technology turns turkey guts, human corpses into fuel

[ 10.05.03]
A pilot plant in Philadelphia is capable of converting 200 tons of turkey guts into hundreds of barrels of fuel oil. According to the entrepreneur behind the enterprise: "If a 175-pound man fell into one end, he would come out the other end as 38 pounds of oil, 7 pounds of gas, and 7 pounds of minerals, as well as 123 pounds of sterilized water."

World's 1st Inflatable Church Opens to the Public

[Reuters 14.05.03]
ESHER, England (Reuters) - The world's first inflatable church opened its Gothic arches to worshippers on Tuesday to reveal a blow-up organ, a polyvinyl pulpit, an air-filled altar and fake stained glass windows. The church is the brainchild of British entrepreneur Michael Gill, who says it could breathe new life into Christianity by letting preachers take their message into their communities. A priest could carry it around on the back of truck and set it up on patches of grass or in village squares for impromptu services, he says.

Jim Crow Revived in Cyberspace

[Alternet 13/05/03]
Birmingham, Ala. – Astonishingly, and sadly, four decades after the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. marched in Birmingham, we must ask again, "Do African-Americans have the unimpeded right to vote in the United States?" (...) Today, there is a new and real threat to minority voters, this time from cyberspace: computerized purges of voter rolls. The menace first appeared in Florida in the November 2000 presidential election. While the media chased butterfly ballots and hanging chads, a much more sinister and devastating attack on voting rights went almost undetected.
In the two years before the elections, the Florida secretary of state's office quietly ordered the removal of 94,000 voters from the registries. Supposedly, these were convicted felons who may not vote in Florida. Instead, the overwhelming majority were innocent of any crime – and just over half were black or Hispanic.
How did mass expulsion of legal voters occur? At the heart of the ethnic purge of voting rights was the creation of a central voter file for Florida placed in the hands of an elected, and therefore partisan, official. Computerization and a 1998 "reform" law meant to prevent voter fraud allowed for a politically and racially biased purge of thousands of registered voters on the flimsiest of grounds.
Voters whose name, birth date and gender loosely matched that of a felon anywhere in America were targeted for removal. And so one Thomas Butler (of several in Florida) was tagged because a "Thomas Butler Cooper Jr." of Ohio was convicted of a crime. The legacy of slavery – commonality of black names – aided the racial bias of the "scrub list."

Give six monkeys a computer, and what do you get? Certainly not Shakespeare

[Guardian 13.05.03]
It is a favourite question of pub philosophers everywhere. If you gave an infinite number of monkeys an infinite number of typewriters, would they eventually produce the complete works of Shakespeare? Exactly what happens when you give monkeys a computer? Now we know. "The lead male got a stone and started bashing the hell out of it. ... Another thing they were interested in was in defecating and urinating all over the keyboard." The researcher behind the test summed up the results: "It was a hopeless failure in terms of science but that's not really the point.,3604,952227,00.html
