Sorry, @Harold Jones, you were right.

Court rules automakers can record and intercept owner text messages

(...)

An Annapolis, Maryland-based company, Berla Corporation, provides the technology to some car manufacturers but does not offer it to the general public, the lawsuit said. Once messages are downloaded, Berla’s software makes it impossible for vehicle owners to access their communications and call logs but does provide law enforcement with access, the lawsuit said.

Many car manufacturers are selling car owners’ data to advertisers as a revenue boosting tactic, according to earlier reporting by Recorded Future News. Automakers are exponentially increasing the number of sensors they place in their cars every year with little regulation of the practice.

How could this possibly end well?

A team of researchers in China has reported for the first time the live birth of a monkey that contains a high proportion of cells derived from a monkey stem cell line. This “chimeric” monkey is composed of cells that originate from two genetically distinct embryos of the same species of monkey. This has previously been demonstrated in rats and mice but, until now, has not been possible in other species, including non-human primates. The details of the research are reported November 9 in the journal Cell.

They performed a number of different tests on the cells to confirm that they were pluripotent—having the ability to differentiate into all of the cell types needed to create a live animal. The stem cells were also labeled with green fluorescent protein so the researchers would be able to determine which tissues had grown out of the stem cells in any animals that developed and survived.

Crichton was an optimist.

Rumors and video clips of panic, massive police presence and what social media users claim to be an eight-to-10-foot alien appearing at a Miami mall cropped up online Friday, though the digital buzz around the supposed appearance seems to be sourced from footage of a new year’s day brawl at the shopping center that involved several juveniles and a police response.

I call BS on the alien hypothesis. Too many red flags. Of all places, why Miami? Why a shopping mall? Why on New Years Day? If he/she/they were watching one of the bowl games (NCAA football, you louts) and ran out of beer, surely an advanced species would avoid supermarkets and shopping malls like the plague. Gas stations are the safe bet for beer runs during the big holidays, that would have been in the xenoanthropology trainings.

"Genocide" has been redefined as meaning any action inhibiting gang rape and murder by Palestinians.

The chief medical officer for Customs and Border Protection pressured his staff to order fentanyl lollipops for him to take to the United Nations General Assembly meeting in New York in September, according to a whistleblower report sent to Congress on Friday. 

The whistleblowers said Dr. Alexander Eastman’s staff raised questions about why he would need to order fentanyl lollipops to take with him, and he answered that it was part of his duties to make sure that any injured CBP operators were cared for, making the argument that the lollipops would be necessary for pain management should an emergency occur.

 

We all know that the UN is all about hookers, blow, and pedophilia, but Dr. Eastman is really kicking it up a notch with introducing fentanyl to those diplomatic immunity parties.

The mystery behind radio signals that have baffled scientists at Australia’s most famous radio telescope for 17 years has finally been solved.

The signals’ source? A microwave oven in the kitchen at the Parkes observatory used by staff members to heat up their lunch.

Simon Johnston, head of astrophysics at the CSIRO, the national science agency, said astronomers first detected the signals, called perytons, in 1998. The signals “were reasonably local, say within 5km of the telescope”.

Originally researchers assumed the signals – which appeared only once or twice a year – were coming from the atmosphere, possibly linked to lightning strikes.

Then on 1 January this year they installed a new receiver which monitored interference, and detected strong signals at 2.4 GHz, the signature of a microwave oven.

 

Observe that they jumped to the conclusion of a terrestrial microwave oven without considering use by extraterrestrials in orbit.
