I'm always grimly amused whenever someone on my friend's list says "Don't for Republicans, if you want to keep your civil liberties." Most Republicans are indeed terrible on civil liberties, but I'm flabbergasted that anyone thinks Democrats are any better.
""Technically, every dispensary in the state is in blatant violation of federal law," Sweetin told the Denver Post. "The time is coming when we go into a dispensary, we find out what their profit is, we seize the building and we arrest everybody. They're violating federal law; they're at risk of arrest and imprisonment."
It has a science-fiction ring to it - "Baby born from embryo frozen nearly 20 years" - but there's nothing futuristic about the idea. // Fertility experts at the Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine assisted in the very real birth of a healthy baby in May from an embryo that had been "cryopreserved" for 19 years and 7 months.
"Squarehead’s new system is like bullet-time for sound. 325 microphones sit in a carbon-fiber disk above the stadium, and a wide-angle camera looks down on the scene from the center of this disk. All the operator has to do is pinpoint a spot on the court or field using the screen, and the Audioscope works out how far that spot is from each of the mics, corrects for delay and then synchronizes the audio from all 315 of them. The result is a microphone that can pick out the pop of a bubblegum bubble in the middle of a basketball game, as you can see in this video."
