G-Wiz! the Electric Car That Started a Revolution In early 2004, a tiny new car appeared on the streets of London. It confused, surprised and confounded everyone who saw it.

Is America Rooting for a Twitter Downfall? Some Evidence. As a result, reporters are treating Twitter like any other celebrity: when the good news stops selling, pray for a downfall. If Britney Spears has taught us anything, it’s that celebrity downfalls are a media goldmine. When you consider Twitter’s meteoric rise as one of the biggest stories of 2009, it’s no surprise that reporters would salivate over any contradictory news about the company in 2010

What Rotting Fish Reveal About The Fossil Record Anyone with a functioning nose probably wants to stay away from rotting fish, but a team of British researchers braved the stench — and turned something gross into scientific gold.

America Is Not Yet Lost We’ve always known that America’s reign as the world’s greatest nation would eventually end. But most of us imagined that our downfall, when it came, would be something grand and tragic. What we’re getting instead is less a tragedy than a deadly farce.

Instead of fraying under the strain of imperial overstretch, we’re … by procedure. Instead of re-enacting the decline and fall of Rome, we’re re-enacting the dissolution of 18th-century Poland

What Came Before the Big Bang? Leading Physicists Present a Radical Theory In their view of the universe the complexities of an inflating universe after a Big Bang are replaced by a universe that was already large. flat, and uniform with dark energy as the effect of the other universe constantly leaking gravity into our own and driving its acceleration. According to this theory, the Big Bang was not the beginning of time but the bridge to a past filled with endlessly repeating cycles of evolution, each accompanied by the creation of new matter and the formation of new galaxies, stars, and planets

An end to frivolous patents may finally be in sight DO PATENTS help or hinder innovation? Instinctively, they would seem a blessing, especially for backroom tinkerers. Patenting an idea gives its inventor a 20-year monopoly to exploit the fruit of his labour in the marketplace, in exchange for publishing a full account of how the new product, process or material works for all and sundry to see.

For the inventor, that may be a reasonable trade-off. For society, however, the loss of competition through the granting sole rights to an individual or organisation is justified only if it stimulates the economy and delivers goods that change people’s lives for the better

Tale of a Would-Be Spy, Buried Treasure, and Uncrackable Code When officials searched the aspiring spy, they found a paper tucked under the insole of his right shoe. On it were written the addresses of several Iraqi and Chinese embassies in Europe. In a trouser pocket they discovered a spiral pad in which Regan, who had been trained in cryptanalysis by the Air Force, had written 13 seemingly unconnected words — like tricycle, rocket, and glove.

Another 26 words were written on an index card. In his wallet was a paper with a string of several dozen letters and numbers beginning “5-6-N-V-O-A- I …” And in a folder Regan had been carrying, they found four pages filled with three-digit numbers, or trinomes: 952, 832, 041, and so on. The spiral pad, the index card, the wallet note, and the sheets of trinomes: The FBI suddenly had four puzzles to solve

The role of computers in planning chess strategy In the chess world of the 1990s, humans and computers were rivals. IBM’s Deep Blue, a supercomputer designed specifically to play chess, defeated reigning world champion Garry Kasparov. (Check out Geek Trivia: Deeper than deep.) Today, men and machines work together. There is a form of chess called advanced chess or cyborg chess, introduced by Kasporov, in which a human and a computer play as a team. A variation, called freestyle chess, allows consultation teams.

Electronic assistance isn’t allowed during a conventional match, but that doesn’t mean chess champs can’t use digital devices when assessing the opponents they may encounter in a tournament and when plotting their strategies. Many chess players at the international tournament level now utilize the processing power of today’s powerful — but much less costly — computers to help them prepare for matches
