Are Habitable Exoplanets Bad News For Humanity?

Recent /. Posts - Thu, 04/24/2014 - 1:48pm
An anonymous reader writes "The discovery of Kepler-186f last week has dusted off an interesting theory regarding the fate of humanity and the link between that fate and the possibility of life on other planets. Known as the The Great Filter, this theory attempts to answer the Fermi Paradox (why we haven't found other complex life forms anywhere in our vast galaxy) by introducing the idea of an evolutionary bottleneck which would make the emergence of a life form capable of interstellar colonization statistically rare. As scientists gear up to search for life on Kepler-186f, some people are wondering if humanity has already gone through The Great Filter and miraculously survived or if it's still on our horizon and may lead to our extinction."

Slide un Cable en SpeedRiding

AVERTISSEMENT: Ce slide en speedriding est très compliqué et dangereux à réaliser!!! Il ne faut vraiment pas essayer de reproduire ce genre de chose. Seulement après des milliers et des milliers d'heures de pratique j'ai pu envisager de réaliser ce slide. Le télésiège où je le réalise est un 3 places de plus de 30 ans et hors service depuis un an. Son démontage est prévue dans un mois, je n'y ai causé aucun dommage.

New White House Petition For Net Neutrality

Recent /. Posts - Thu, 04/24/2014 - 1:09pm
Bob9113 (14996) writes "On the heels of yesterday's FCC bombshell, there is a new petition on the White House petition site titled, 'Maintain true net neutrality to protect the freedom of information in the United States.' The body reads: 'True net neutrality means the free exchange of information between people and organizations. Information is key to a society's well being. One of the most effective tactics of an invading military is to inhibit the flow of information in a population; this includes which information is shared and by who. Today we see this war being waged on American citizens. Recently the FCC has moved to redefine "net neutrality" to mean that corporations and organizations can pay to have their information heard, or worse, the message of their competitors silenced. We as a nation must settle for nothing less than complete neutrality in our communication channels. This is not a request, but a demand by the citizens of this nation. No bandwidth modifications of information based on content or its source.'"
