Discovered vulnerability in the version of Windows 7 x64

According to Twitter, which was published by 'webDEViL', Windows 7 contains a serious vulnerability that could be used by Apple's Safari web browser.

Namely, 'webDEViL' claims to show specific HTML elements placed within the web page causes Safari browser bug known as "BSoD" (Blue Screen of Death) in Windows 7 x64 operating system.

He then states that the source of vulnerability in the features NtGdiDrawStream and that subsequent tests showed that 32-bit version is not affected by vulnerability. This vulnerability is confirmed in well-known company Secunia issued its safety recommendation.

The recommendation is that the vulnerability was caused by an error in win32k.sys file and may be used to breach the integrity of working memory using a specially formatted web page that contains IFRAME with attribute set too high 'height'. Successful abuse of vulnerability may allow execution of arbitrary code with kernel privileges.

A new idea for cooling of the earth!

A group of scientists, lawyers and philosophers are trying to find radical ways to artificially cool the Earth in order to change global warming.

At the UN conference in South Africa is one of the proposals was that the small amount of sunlight back into space before it hits the Earth's surface would have an immediate and dramatic effect. It would certainly be affected by the change in weather. However, no one knows what will be the side effects, according to Daily Mail.

The idea of ​​solar radiation management "has the potential to be very helpful or very harmful," the report concludes the British Royal Society and the Environmental Protection Fund in Washington.

The report is a long-standing work group of scientists from 22 countries world spurred by the failure of 20-year-old UN negotiating process to take decisive action to curb emissions of gases of glass.

If it were the fact that sunlight is rejected then it means that it will carry out activities such as spraying of sulfur into the air and spraying seawater into the clouds refused to sunlight. However, if these activities were abruptly broken could have serious consequences for the climate.

The report emphasized that the state should not hesitate in taking action with the aim of global cooling because it only reduces the chances of damaging the fight against climate change and the slow progress towards finding solutions.

How will life look on Earth 2080?

The year is the 2080th Global emissions have long since peaked and is already too late to stop the rise in temperature. Climate change has changed the face of the world.

Growth temperatures were first felt the poor countries and vulnerable areas such as sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. Extreme weather such as droughts, floods and hurricanes have become frequent and severe. Sensitive people have found themselves facing a choice: adapt or face the millions of dead. At great cost to society is still adjusting. This is a picture of the world to announce what many climate experts.

At a conference on climate change, which began on Monday in Durban, scientists at the University of East Anglia warned that annual emissions of carbon dioxide reached a record $ 10 billion, an increase of 50 percent in the last two decades. These figures, presented in the journal "Nature Climate Change", cast doubt on the possibility that emissions can be reduced enough to prevent the global temperature rise of 2 ° C, which is considered critical.


Today we can not yet say with certainty that the Earth will look like the 2080th year, however many models, based on the assumption that the average temperature rise by two degrees, no hinting just a pretty picture. According to these models, a key factor in the future life will be extreme weather conditions. The good news is that we will, if you believe the Salemulu Huku from the International Institute for Nature and Development in London, with sufficient investment, some of them still prilagoditie. For example, the 1991st major hurricane in Bangladesh caused extensive flooding and damage, and claimed around 130,000 lives. After that, the Asian country was built shelters and systems for early warning system. The next wave of the same strength hurricane death toll was about ten times smaller. Europe and North America, thanks to his wealth will be able to finance the necessary protection systems, but the price will not be small.

Food, health, conflict and sea level:

Higher temperatures will be bad for global agriculture, although it will be some areas that will benefit. Agronomists are already busily working on new strains of rice and wheat that will be able to survive despite the drought and heat waves.

Organizations such as the "Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research" helping farmers to find out that farming methods and strains for them to be satisfactory. Despite the increasingly usoj probadati and food prices will rise.

With the increase in temperature will increase and health problems like heart attacks and infectious disease. Models show that tropical diseases will extend to higher latitudes and altitudes, although many experts believe that better medical care in most regions, however, prevent the worst outcomes.

The amount of sea level rise for the time being is still a big mystery. But according to what we know, even the most terrible scenario should not occur to 2080. When it comes to estimates of the impact of global warming on the conflicts between people, expert opinions are not unique. Some believe that the number of climate change significantly increase.

Many experts believe that the deadline for reaching agreement on reducing greenhouse gas emissions 2015th years. Some countries, including India and the United States, trying to delay the final agreement as long as possible, and Canada has recently announced that it has no intention of participating in any document that would be inherited by the Kyoto Protocol.

Is there a cure?

What can we do if we fail to achieve the set goals? First of all, experts agree, there should not be given up by reducing emissions. Brian Hoskins from the "Imperial College" in London points out that the climate does not yet understand enough so the temperature, some luck, not grow by 2 ° C despite the increase in emissions. But Hoskins believes that at any cost should avoid a scenario in which they compared to pre-industrial increased by 4 ° C.

Finally, it is possible that we will need some form Geoengeniring.

"We will have somehow to look for ways to remove CO2," says Tim Lenton of the University of Ekster in the UK. Some countries have already started planting trees as CO2 drains, and there are prototypes of relevant technologies for sucking gases from the atmosphere. Hoskins thinks that they could become important when the end of the century will have to prevent a further increase in temperature.

Voyager from the edge of the solar system recorded Incredible scenes

Twin NASA mission, Voyager, which is located at the entrance of the galaxy for the first time in history has peered outside the solar system and recorded images of the human eye has never seen.

According to new research, the two aircraft were in other parts of the Milky Way ultraviolet light recorded by our instruments so far from hiding blinding glow of our parent star.

"People were trying to perform these measurements from Earth orbit, but that they never succeeded," said veteran Bill Sandel Voyager missions with the University of Tuscany.

This frequency of light, known as alpha radiation Limanovo, send the hydrogen atoms that are cooled. On Earth, it is almost impossible to detect this radiation, since UV signals in our galaxy are disappearing in a sea of ​​solar radiation scattered stray hydrogen atoms, just as the stars invisible during the day because the atmosphere scatters the sun's rays.

Scientists have already managed to capture Limanovo alpha radiation from distant galaxies, because it comes with a certain shift towards the red end of the spectrum caused by expansion of the universe. This change in frequency of light emission makes it possible to clearly distinguish it from solar. No emission from our galaxy have a redshift, so it is much harder to distinguish.

Voyager 1 and 2 were launched in 1977. year. The 2004th they entered the Solar System and are now about 100, or 120 times the distance from the Sun than Earth.

This distance and the new data analysis techniques have enabled scientists to distinguish between galactic radiation from the Sun. The new data will allow a better understanding of the structure and properties of distant galaxies.

Another redesign for Twitter

Social network Twitter will no longer be the same, company leaders decided.

Twitter has introduced a major redesign of its services and issued a new application for Android and
IOS accompanying the new design guidelines, and behind it lies a desire to change the way user's access to its tweets.

Twitter users will see changes on computers in a few weeks, while the tweeters that social network with mobile access, redesigned service would be available immediately.

As a reminder, the previous design made ​​it possible to extend the''time-line "and thus immediately see all related information contained in the''tweet."

This is how Antarctica looks without ice!

If you ever wondered how the Antarctic ice-free look, a new detailed map of the southernmost continent on the globe will surely delight.

Specifically, members of the project BEDMAP managed on the basis of data collected from decades of ships, aircraft and satellites, and even the sleigh, to simulate the soil.

It is interesting that less than one percent of its land is covered with a white blanket. On the map below the highest peaks are marked with red and black. Light Blue indicates a clear extension of the continent, while the lowest area marked dark blue. Some of them are now well below sea level.

This model is not only beautiful, it's also important to explore the possible impact of global warming on the white continent. In fact, scientists recently recorded major changes at the ends of the continent of which are separated by large parts of the ice and melt in oceanic waters. Data gathered by BADMAP will help scientists to predict the extent and speed of developments.

"That information is the foundation of our models that reveal how the ice travels the continent," said Hamish Pritcard the British Antarctic Survey.

"Snow constantly supplying Antarctic ice sheet and ice constantly sliding towards the shore where it dissolves or breaks. It is big and slow hydrological cycle. To create such models need knowledge about the complex physics of ice, and topographic map of the soil in which ice slides, and that is BEDMAP. "

The map is presented at a session of "American Geophysical Union (AGU)", the largest annual conference of planetary scientists in the world.

The radar surveys were used because microwave radiation penetrates the ice, but not through the rocks.

Most interesting in the new model is certainly an area Gamburtsev mountain range where the highest peaks reaching 3000 meters above sea level. Despite these elevations are covered with thick layers of ice more than 1000 meters.

Will Google "kill" Mozilla?

Since the Mozilla Foundation 84% of its revenues (about $ 100 million) last year received from Google, which pays to its search itself in the Firefox browser, the big question is how to survive when Mozilla this work, which expired in November would not be extended. When asked whether the ZDNet site there was a new deal two companies, in Mozilla responded that no new information.

Google, which has its own Chrome browser, which is better than Firefox, you may decide not to renew the agreement in order to indirectly slow down the competition, according to ZDNet.

What will then happen with Mozilla and Firefox?

It may be in place  Google "jump" Microsoft, which certainly is intended to provide significant Bingu market share, and the two companies already collaborate on a project with Bing Firefox, according to B92.

However, even if it does solve the problem Mozilla is only in the next year or two, and analysts have predicted that in future the main race of the browser market between Microsoft and run Google.

Diet reduces heart risk in teens

A large proportion of fiber-rich foods in the diet of teenagers is associated with a reduced presence of risk factors for heart disease, U.S. researchers reported.

Researchers at the University of Michigan, after analyzing the diet of more than 2000 respondents aged 12 to 19 years are added to the diet was associated with lower risk for type 2 diabetes

Their data showed that the intake of saturated fat or cholesterol in teenagers does not affect the occurrence of risk factors for heart disease and type 2 diabetes

The lowest risk for high blood pressure, increased concentration of sugars and fats in the blood, reducing the concentration of so-called. of good (HDL) cholesterol and increased waist circumference was observed in teenagers who each brought at least 1000 calories 11 grams of fiber from fruits, vegetables and whole grain products.

NASA confirmed the existence of "Other Earth"!

The U.S. space agency (NASA) announced that the Kepler Space Telescope confirmed the existence of planets outside our solar system where there is a possibility of life, carried Belgrade media.

This planet, named Kepler 22b, astronomers noticed that 2009 is the first for which NASA is able to confirm that the zone is suitable for life. This means that astronomers see how the three passes, "transit" in front of its sun. This, however, does not mean that life does exist on the planet, but only to meet the basic requirements.

In other words, the planet is orbiting at the right distance from its star, which suggests that it may be on the water and that the temperature and atmosphere suitable for life.

 "The Kepler 22b of asserting the existence of planets suitable for life. We are sure that the planet is in a suitable area to live and if there is an area, you should at a pleasant temperature to her," said Bill Borak, principal investigator of the "Kepler" in NASA Ames research cent.

Rotated around its star at a distance of 600 light years away, Kepler 22b is 2.4 times larger than Earth and its orbit crosses the sun for 290 days. Scientists, however, do not know if this planet is rocky, gaseous or liquid. "Transit" observed the planet shortly after its launch into space telescope Kepler in March 2009.

Kepler Telescope mission was the first American space agencies are looking for Earth-like planets that orbit as they have around their sun. Kepler is equipped with the largest camera ever sent back into space with a resolution of 95 megapixels, and is expected to continue to send information to Earth until November 2012th

 The third planet eligible for life

22b is the third Kepler exoplanet for which astronomers have confirmed that conditions for life. Besides it, there are also Gliese 581d by French astronomers have discovered in May this year and HD 85512d which in August of Swiss astronomers found that the area is suitable for life.

Find out how it really works on Wikipedia

Wikipedia is a kind of organism that never stagnates and is continuously updated, and is now richer and Wikistream. This addition to the "free encyclopedia" allows us to gain insight into what exactly is and how it occurs and in real time.

 With Wikistream the pictures in the background randomly change, but the stream sometimes going so fast that you can barely follow what was happening.

So we can say that users of Wikipedia have no idea about the approximate amount of content and activities on it's - until they see Wikistream. Many people around the world "worry" about different possible topics on the "free encyclopedia", add new content, and to remove obsolete - every second.

If you do not want to watch a global view of activity on Wikipedia, Wikistream allows you to select which country you want to follow, and will help you in choosing the type of information you want to track in real time.

 If your stream too fast or you want to go to a specific page, just press "P" on the keyboard and the whole stream will stop. To start it again, press "P".

Here's how the authors explain their project idea:

"I hope that Wikistream allow you to guess how many active community engaged in Wikipedia. Wikistream was created to help identify the level of involvement of people worldwide who actively participated in that Wikipedia becomes a tremendous resource as we are."

Monster Black Hole Eats Worlds

A new study claims a supermassive black hole at the centre of our galaxy is ripping apart entire worlds on a daily basis.

The research by scientists led by Dr Kastytis Zubovas from the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom, explains why Sagittarius A, a giant black hole 26,000 light-years from Earth, flares up in spectacular daily displays of x-rays and infrared radiation.

Writing on the pre-press website, Zubovas and colleagues propose Sagittarius A, which is 4,000,000 times the mass of the Sun, is destroying planets and asteroids that have formed in a torus of dust and gas around the black hole.

They claim these clouds are a mixture of primordial chemicals and the remains of stars that have already been shredded by the black hole.

That's a similar environment to the protoplanetary disks around stars in which planets form.
Black hole solar systems

This hypothesis has raised the possibility that planetary systems could be evolving around the Milky Way's central black hole in the same way that they would around a star.

Michele Bannister, a graduate student in planetary astronomy at the Australian National University's Mt Stromlo Observatory, says it is plausible that planets can form on the edge of a black hole.

"While the galactic centre is an incredibly energetic environment, planets are very resilient and so could form there," says Bannister.

She says the daily eruption of x-rays and infrared radiation provides clues about the numbers of asteroids, comets and planets likely to exist close to the galactic centre.
Planetary death

While this region may be conducive to the formation of planets and asteroids, Zubovas and colleagues point out that it's also an area where these bodies are destroyed as they move too close to the central black hole.

When this happens, a burst of x-rays and infrared radiation a hundred times greater than normal background energy is detected coming from Sagittarius A, they report.

But the radiation released as the planets and asteroids are destroyed is just a tiny fraction of the levels released when a star falls into the black hole, an event which is estimated to happen once every 100,000 years.

Associate Professor Alistair Graham from Melbourne's Swinburne University says scientitsts have only recently been able to understand how stars and planets can form in hostile environments near supermassive black holes.

"Most, if not all galaxies are thought to have supermassive black holes at their centers."

"The huge bursts of energy and particles beaming out from these gravity wells as stars are torn apart, couldn't explain the small scale x-ray and infrared flares seen daily from Sagittarius A", says Graham.

"However this energy output does match the levels expected from an in falling asteroid or planet."

The most beautiful footage of the Earth from outer space!

The crew of the International Space Station has enabled the "Earthlings" to enjoy the sights of their planet in a way that has not been seen.

This is how our planet looks from the height of 460.2 kilometers.
Beautiful shots of the International Space Station

The video, made with the International Space Station, published by the U.S. Agency for Space Studies (NASA).

Made him the 29th crew mission as they traveled around the planet at a speed of 27,300 kilometers per hour.

Pay attention to the few passing storms. They can be recognized by the lightning that just boosted the effectiveness of this amazing footage.

From Alaska, the phenomenon of aurora borealis illuminated (North Aurora), via Cuba, the Atlantic, around the camera has captured the holy city in Britain, a Pakistani city of Lahore, India's capital New Delhi, the Caspian basin space and much more.

Google gives millions for research on the internet

Google will fund extensive research on the relationship between society and the Internet. Costs were 4.5 million, and research is conducted at the Berlin University. The questions are - how the Internet shapes the real and social space?

Many Germans are not willing to make their photos dawned on the Internet - for example, in Google's Street vjuu showing the streets of cities around the world. Due to these facts the American giant had a problem to provide this service in Germany. So far funded a major study in which we need to show the many layers of people over the internet.

"We want to understand how the Internet is changing our world, and in Berlin we can to investigate multi-disciplinary," said Ingolf Pernis, one of the founders of the Internet Institute at the University of Berlin.

The questions to be answered are yet to be formulated in detail, but it is clear that it will treat its influence on the formation of public sphere, political mobilization and copyright protection. That is why the team of researchers renowned political scientists, sociologists and lawyers.

The university claims that Google has not exercised any pressure and will be independent research. Experts estimate that the company has invested millions in this study partly in order to obtain positive headlines in the newspapers a few days. After all, Google has earned in the last quarter almost $ 3 billion, and an investment of several million of them and not great.

We will soon send scented messages over the Internet

Designers of "Mint Digital" developed a conceptual device "Oli" ("Olly"), whose work is based on the creation of fragrances that will be exchanged via the Internet.

Specifically, the device encrypts the smell in a special message and thus the internet that allows the user receives a message that the fragrance determine its contents.

The creators of the device "Oli" the practical application of his that can be usable when sending email messages, subscription to RSS feeds, a message on Twitter or Facebook, etc. ...

Customers will be able to choose in advance the type of smell for certain types of Internet traffic, which in turn will increase the cost of the device.

Hard choice between the Moon and Jupiter

Roskosmos and European cosmic agency and the possibilities of strategic partnerships in the study of the solar system. Is considered as a variant of a common mission to Jupiter, probably with a landing on its satellite Europa. The other option is to win a robotic Moon base editing. The choice side will be known in late November, when the present plan of the program.
Both options have positive and negative sides. Moon has been actively studied for several decades. Mission to the Moon is cheaper.
About Jupiter and the surrounding area is much less known. From Earth it is not well seen, however, it will let the last 6 years.
The first detailed images of Jupiter obtained by the 1970th The apparatus of the American pioneer. A much larger contribution to knowledge on this planet has given NASA's Galileo station, which was launched into orbit and worked there during the 8 years. Then, the station received orders to fly directly to Jupiter, and is burned in its atmosphere. This was the 2003rd year. Scientists feared that Galileo will sooner or later fall to Europe - the second large distances from Jupiter Satellite, in its scope similar to the Moon and terrestrial bacteria will multiply uncontrollably there.
Why are scientists worried about Europe? The whole surface of the satellite covers the ice, under which there may be a water layer of the ocean - the appropriate environment for primitive life. Today was a lot of data collected on this satellite, the interest towards him increases, - said the deputy director of the Institute of cosmic research Oleg Korabljov RAN.
The global ocean, if any, direct contact with the mineral shell satellites, creating a kind of broth. That there would be a chance for the development of living forms, are the various elements needed - water must be clean. At this stage of research does not suggest a risk moving the camera in Europe. Land on the surface of the radio signal broadcast from there would be a great achievement.
According to the scientists, the device for landing, which could be launched by satellite to Europe, will be strictly sterilized. Surface ice is probably not suitable for finding life - similar to a sterile surface of Antarctica. It is hardly possible to drill icebergs to research broth if it contains bacteria. At slimmest point Deblin ice may make a few hundred meters. As for landing, it is not a problem - in Russia is an established technology of such devices, - says Oleg Korabljov.
Is it necessary that the device will soon be clear, be clear and the range of his scientific duties, in case if Russia and the Europeans choose to Jupiter mission.

Nanotechnology discovers who is prone to myocardial

In industrialized countries, every other man died of a heart attack or stroke. By now it was impossible to make predictions about individual who is more to experience a heart attack. That could soon change.

Healthy blood vessels are smooth on the inside. Blood cells are not nice for them. So easy to transport oxygen to the muscles where it was needed. Until there is some inflammation, it works just fine. Inflammation in fact result in blood vessel walls. It is a matrix protein-Metaloprotezen (MMP)

MMP then causes damage to the original smooth wall of blood vessels. Through the damage to white blood cells called leukocytes, penetrate the cell walls, where grade calcification, atherosclerotic plaque and so begins a vicious cycle, says Michael Šefers the University Clinic in Münster:

"Through the infection more white blood cells, penetrate the blood vessel wall and plaque becomes thicker. This causes muscle cells to the infected area of ​​building some sort of vault. Then MMP erode the vault. Then he could burst blood vessel in that place, which would shut down the court and cause a heart attack. When this happens the blood vessel supplying the brain, a stroke occurs. "

A view inside the patient

For forecasts in turn, is likely a heart attack and stroke, it is not enough to know how to feed a man, if he moves, how hard, and whether smoking. Doctors need to know if dangerous inflammation in blood vessels. And to have to look inside the patient's body.

Already, doctors can be sure to identify the patient's body. For example, when a patient injects a special liquid, blood vessels in the CT-scanner to become visible. This device is a true three-dimensional X-ray picture that shows the blood vessels that, due to ubrizganoj liquids, become visible. If there is inflammation or narrowing of blood vessels, doctors to be easily identified.

Nanotechnology offers the possibility of earlier diagnosed Nanotechnology offers the possibility of earlier diagnosis, "The problem that we have on this occasion is that we do not see the blood vessel, where the anomaly occurred, where the disease, ie. inflammation of. We see the only means that the real contrast in the courts. In the meantime, we come to know that heart attacks occur in areas where the narrowing of the very small or non-existent, "explains Dr. Šefers.

Calcified parts of the blood vessels are visible on the CT-scanner, because the thicker the blood cells, but even those not sure indicator that there will be a heart attack, "there may be calcified deposits and 20 years after the inflammation, but inflammation is no longer active. It is not enough just to know if there has been a narrowing of a blood vessel or calcified plaque. "

Successful tests on mice

The solution offers nanotechnology. Researchers have been able to build molecules that bind to proteins cause infection. These molecules are called "inventors" (Tracer), as this inflammation becomes visible on the CT-scanner, "the inventor or 'tracer' mixed with radioactive or floroscentnim colors, and then thanks to the light or radioactivity can be measured. That's easy to see the molecular composition of individual organs. "

The scientists in experiments on mice were able to form three-dimensional images arteriosclerosis inflammation. If they succeeded in applying this technique in humans, we could predict for each patient's particular risk of heart attack.

"Also when we see that the amount of MMP exist, we can say: The man who is present in greater quantities of MMP, there is a higher risk of heart attack, the man with whom there is less MMP, the smaller the risk. Then we can define separately for each individual to say: You need more intensive therapy, and you do not, "said Dr. Šefers.

Early diagnosis and other diseases

This technique offers opportunities for diagnostics and other diseases, in which early identification is crucial for successful treatment, said Dr. Andreas Jordan, a pioneer in the clinical utility of nanotechnology. For example in the case of cancer and multiple sclerosis, inflammation of the central nervous system, the treatment is effective only when early detection otherwise paralysis leading to death.

"Basically, it takes us in the following way: if something we can discover when we discover early on that such a disease, we can develop specific therapeutic values ​​and concept," explains Andreas Jordan.

The wars for women and because women

Mankind is faced with a "concern masculinization", with a growing surplus of men. What is correct: the war for women or war because women?

Both, because they are less and less. For a few years men will be in some Asian countries engage in wars for acquiring life companion.

Who (above) wins, it girl!

Are we to puzzle and seductive history once again draws attention to its unsolved repetition?

In India, the biggest deficiency: 160 million souls of women! Will the second most populous nation on the planet go into
conquest other countries and bringing the men chosen for their subjects?

When he refused, served the cunning: they were invited to the annual feast in honor of the god Neptune, and the signal by the Romans seized the girls entrants.

The plague of abortion
Kristof Gijmoto who follows developments in relation to population has recently been re-warned of the threat "worrying masculinization" of countries like India and China, especially due to the interference of parents and relatives in the future sex of the newborn. How? As soon learn that to be born a girl, resort to abortion.
Some demographers believe that the lack of adult women in the next five decades as a cause pervasive effects of which I have the climatic fluctuations. Existing data are frightening.
Nature has established a kind of "sexual seesaw", where men predominate slightly: for every 100 female births are born every year 104-106 men. Any noticeable departure from such a balance can only be interpreted as unnatural causes.
In China, the most outstanding discrepancy: 120 men versus 100 women, and in some areas is the first for ten more. The same phenomenon is rapidly spreading to other parts of the world, such as Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia - 115 in 100 In Vietnam, the somewhat milder - 112 to 100
The new scourge of humanity in 1990. said the Indian Nobel Laureate for Economics Amartya Sen in today's famous book, "More than 100 million women are missing." In the meantime, the backlog has increased to 160 million in India. So much, in fact, the unborn souls of women excluded from life. Why?
Prevailing three factors: a love of a centuries old sons, the decline of fertility and, perhaps most important, involvement in sex selection due to modern technology and tools. In India alone, according to the respected scientific journal "The Lancet", aborted every year around half a million female embryos!
Living with multiple husbands
Even if in the coming ten years the ratio of the sexes back into a natural routine, the men would be faced with a shortage of women for marriage. Only later will not go before the registrar, but shall increase the brotherhood bachelors.
Some foresee a growth in the number of women with multiple husbands (polyandry) and tourist trips to satisfy sexual instincts, the other much darker indicate prediction that communities with excess males stir up some kind of sexual wars. Which will come to pass?
Particularly alarming is the warning sounded two political scientists, Valerie Hudson and Andrea den Bera, who wrote several years ago that Asian countries with excess male heads threaten the West. In concluding writes that such societies can only be managed in an authoritarian manner, suppressing the violence inside and transferring it outside its borders.
Mara Hvistendal in "unnatural selection" represents a different view, pointing out that the previously unfounded. India is, in fact, put a deep democratic roots, despite the gender imbalance. In any case, she says, a society in which men outnumbered are not "pleasant place to live." They are often volatile, sometimes violent.
Although the deliberate abortion banned in China and India, is incredibly difficult to enforce.
There is no "silver bullet", says Christoph Gijmoto, who believes that the most urgent make sure that the appearance of properly presented, especially in developing countries.
If sex selection of the future be identified with cancer, prejudices about women's cigarettes, and ultrasound and abortion of matches. Nowadays, however, must not neglect the women's rights, including the free will of each individual to end an unwanted pregnancy.
Can nature (evolution) to offer itself out?

Supercomputer "K" broke his own record

Japanese supercomputer "K", which is produced by "Fujitsu", broke his own record in the first place, reaching 10 petaflops.

Japanese supercomputer "K", which is produced by "Fujitsu", broke his own record in the first place, reaching 10 petaflops (a thousand trillion - ten to fifteen - operations per second), reported today the French broadcasters.

Although not completed, "the Japanese" was in June, the list of 500 fastest computers, took first place before that held the Chinese "Tjanhe-1A" with an output of 8.1 petaflops.

Japanese "K" is now fully operational, with more than 88,000 processors each with eight cores, and it was announced that will be used in various projects related to scientific research.

Table of antimatter

It turns out that in the first fractions of a second occurrence of the cosmos was less fortunate - the matter prevailed, although at the outset was in equal amounts. In two recent discoveries scientists have for the hair closer to the door anti world. What is behind?

What kind of periodic table of elements, which was invented by a brilliant Russian chemist Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev, hung on the wall Bizare classroom?

Probably antiperiod table, with antimatter.

  Antimatter mirror image of ordinary matter, which is made up of everything we see and touch. Instead of negatively charged electrons, consists of a positively charged positron. In the same way, our positively charged protons transforms the negative antiprotons. There are also neutral antineutron.

In the first few turbulent fraction of a second birth of the cosmos 13.7 billion years ago ("Big Bang"), had both matter and antimatter. Where the latter is extinct?

The laws of nature (physically) so that in some characteristics of matter and antimatter are different, now it is assumed that these differences were crucial to the future destiny of both. In one of two existing, (attempted) explanation - matter is, simply, penetrated into the area above the blast, which formed the space and time of our universe. It turns out that the antimatter that was unsuccessful.

"Dance of Death" in a flash
Generally accepted theory, the standard model that describes the finest ingredients and the ruling forces in the cosmos, teaches that antimatter is composed of primary (elementary) antiparticle such matter consists of particles.
Each particle is decorated properties (mass, charge, spin, or rotation ...) which make it different from others. And for each there is a corresponding antiparticle, which have some features (like mass or spin) identical, while others (such as electric charge or magnetic moment) the opposite. The most famous example of the electron and positron, which are the reverse charge and magnetic moment, and other characteristics the same.
Matter and antimatter in a flash play "Dance of Death", canceling each other, with the release of enormous energy in the form of gamma radiation and the like. The existence of antiparticles and antimatter first in 1928. noted English scientist Paul Dirac, later Nobel Laureate, imagining positively charged electron, or positron, which is confirmed by experiments in four years.
If particulate matter that comes into contact with antiparticles - say, an electron positron touches - cancel each other (annihilation) of tremendous release of energy.
Since 1955. , when the accelerators ("particle collider") observed antiproton and antineutron, to this day is observed number of antiparticles, and the first core samples antimatter (antiproton antineutron with welded) were observed only decades later. The European Centre for Nuclear Research (CERN) 1995. have finally filled the void first (dice) in antiperiod table, creating antiatom - 
anti hydrogen, one positron which circle around a lone antiprotons. (antisimbol  anti hydrogen H with a dash above).
In about an ordinary hydrogen protons, which represents the atomic nucleus, an electron orbits, and in some antiprotons,
anti hydrogen, shapes antielectron (positron).
As all manner of consolidating (combining) tiniest particulate matter generated in the same manner arises from antiparticle antimatter. Consistent
anti hydrogen atom can, for example, occur by binding of positrons to antiproton, with characteristics that should be the same as ordinary hydrogen. Indeed, in antiproton collisions with a jet of xenon atoms appeared anti hydrogen atom.
To obtain antimatter, otherwise, it is unlikely a lot of energy, because it lasts a very short time in this lush part of the universe matter. This is an extremely complex undertaking.
Two recent discoveries, however, supported the hopes that one day will be filled vacancies in antiperiod table.
Dan Brown and terrorists
In March, the International Research Fellowship at the National labs Brukheven (USA) created the first nucleus antihelijuma-4, helium counterparts (number two in Mendeljejev table) from our world. Previously made antihelijum-3, but antihelijum-4 paired more antimatter than ever spotted in one place.

                                                     Hydrogen                        Anti hydrogen

This is additional evidence that antimatter can be linked into stable clusters, as it does matter. It was assumed, but this has not been confirmed.
It is equally important as scientists at CERN invented the process in late April anti hydrogen capture. First they get anti hydrogen at extremely high temperatures, and then a fraction of a second antiatome kept in an unusual "electromagnetic cage", before they disappeared.
The new method means that antimatter has cooled, making it easy to capture, and then inserted into unusual store, which lasted almost 17 minutes. This approach, directed to consider, can deepen our understanding of the creation of antimatter. (Earth's gravity may refuse anti hydrogen atoms, which is why they break down immediately.)
The resurrection of the next antielement - anti lithium will be waiting for years. No one knows how long. Speed ​​the creation of antimatter falling, even 1,000 times, with each antiproton or antineutron. Artificially make anti lithium (three and three antiproton antineutron) - about a million times harder than helium-4. And for now, probably, beyond the technological reach of existing equipment. Is there another path?
Physicists studying antimatter in part to figure out one of most completest puzzles. The "big bang", it is assumed, is created equal amounts of matter and antimatter and eons long ago canceled. Hence it seems to matter around in abundance, no one knows why.
Maybe a terrible explosion has not delivered one and the other in equal amounts or has removed a huge blob of matter and antimatter in different directions? In this case, all the antimatter in galaxies far from us.
Study anti hydrogen and anti helium antielement will help find the remote vastness of the cosmic, the arcane anti stars. If there is, consists of anti helium, anti carbon, anti gold. The same seems to have originated anti beings, based on the periodic table anti chemistry antielement.
Far away, Bizaro certainly has its eternal rival - Antisupermena.
Physicists, you may have noticed, struggling to keep their antiparticles as long as the electromagnetic captivity, separated from ordinary matter. Why? They are hoping that the door ajar anti world. The properties of antimatter, otherwise, tested under conditions that do not remotely resemble the descriptions in the novel by Dan Brown's "Angels & Demons". (Remember the conspirators who try to steal a mysterious anti-matter.) Addition, and very expensive: for gram you spend $ 25 billion! So little antimatter is created that the terrorists would not use. We know that anti world not yet discovered.
