Exciting New Kenyan Fossils Challenge Established Views on
One of the two fossils, an upper jaw bone of Homo habilis (KNM-ER 42703), dates from 1.44 million years ago, which is more recent than previously known fossils of that species.Â This late-survivor shows that Homo habilis and Homo erectus lived side by side in eastern Africa for nearly half a million years.

How to Read WordPress.com Blogs in Turkey
Written by Amit Agarwal on Saturday, August 18, 2007 | Save Article As PDF
After YouTube, Turkey authorities have now banned the entire wordpress.com domain in the country - the Turkish bloggers can neither post new articles on their Wordpress.com hosted blogs nor can they read any other blogs.
To bypass the government ban, Wordpress.com bloggers and blog readers in Turkey can configure the internet connection settings of their web browser and point the DNS server to that of OpenDNS instead of using the default DNS server of the Turk Telecom ISP. (see screenshot)
Alternatively, they can try other anti-censorship workarounds listed here - How to Access Blocked Websites

[URE3] is a prion of the nitrogen catabolism regulator Ure2p
[PSI+] is a prion of the translation-termination factor Sup35p, which has a parallel beta-sheet structure.
[PIN+] is a prion of Rnq1p (function unknown)
[Het-s] is a prion of the heterokaryon incompatibility protein HETs; this prion of apparently benefits its host (Podospora anserina), whereas the [URE3] and [PSI+] prions of Saccharomyces cerevisiae are detrimental.
[Î²] is a prion of vacuolar protease B
[C] is a prion of a mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase
There are six known prions of fungi, including four self-propagating amyloids and two enzymes that are necessary to activate their inactive precursors:
Let Your Gadgets Soak Up the Sun
Â· Georgetown-based Reware is one company leading the way: Flexible solar panels on its beach totes, backpacks and messenger bags ($225-$299 at http://www.rewarestore.com) charge small electronics with a built-in universal adapter. In direct sunlight, the panels are comparable to wall outlet chargers; in indirect sunlight, they don't produce as much juice but do work. An eco-bonus: The bags use fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles and are manufactured in the United States to reduce transit fuel use.
Â· Prefer to carry your own bag? Stuff the Solio Universal Hybrid Charger inside: The compact, sleek module fans out to resemble a flower and comes in black, white, silver and pink, with a range of adapters available ($89.95-$99.95 at http://www.solio.com).
Sierra Solar's three versions (from 15 watts to 26 watts) are the most compact and double as carrying cases ($262-$390 at http://www.sierrasolar.com).

Here are some sames for flexible solar auto body designs that I am developing.
In this Video, the speaker (Sharad Pardhiji) talks about the modern day scientific findings and how these findings are present in the Shivling or Shiva Lingam conceived thousands of years ago by the Hindu sages. The speaker finds Big Bang theory, DNA and Atom Model in the Shiva Linga.
Please note that there is no evidence to prove the scientific connection of Shiva lingam with modern day findings of science. The speaker is mainly talking about the thoughts of the great sages of Sanatana Dharma or Hinduism present in Shiva Lingam concept. This concept of Shivling is at times quite similar to the modern day findings of science.
This video is taken from the Yug Pravah Video Magazine Vol 95 of All World Gayatri Pariwar (www.awgp.org). Sharad Pardhiji is the speaker and is a disciple of Yug Rishi Pandit Shriram Sharma Acharya.
This has been in my art work for years.

"Imagine someday driving in your hybrid car with a solar
panel painted on the roof, which is producing electricity to drive the engine.
The opportunities are endless," Mitra said.
The solar cell developed at NJIT uses a carbon nanotubes complex, combined with
carbon "Buckyballs," or fullerenes. Together, these nanomaterials
form snake-like structures using Buckyballs to trap electrons generated by
polymers exposed to sunlight. Nanotubes are used to conduct the electrons,
creating a flowing current.
