powering up your hearing aid

you could pay attention to joi and save your hearing, or you could get hip with pat benetar and just buy buy lots of batteries…

music is a work in progress

I never go back. I never listen to them. Music is a work in progress. On a record, it gets frozen in time, and it’s oddly unnatural.

building a better cow

Kirin Brewery Co, Japan’s number-two beer maker, has succeeded in producing a cow that is immune to mad cow disease, but experts said it was too early for livestock producers to celebrate.

Kirin officials said on Monday the company had produced jointly with a U.S. company a cow that carried none of the “prion” proteins that cause the brain-wasting disease, also known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE).

now… if we could just figure out how to make people immune to “stupid human disease”….

the military flirts with truth-free zones

joi seems to be the nexus of this uncorroborated, but entirely plausible story: rumsfeld bans camera phones.

that should eliminate the problem of pesky photographs that embarass the united states, right? makes rumsfeld’s praise of specialist joseph darby ring a little hollow:

us secretary of defense donald rumsfeld, before the senate and house armed services committee, may 7, 2004

There are many who did their duty professionally and we should mention that as well. First, Specialist Joseph Darby, who alerted the appropriate authorities that abuses were occurring.

the report claims that it documents more than $1 billion in subidies from local and state governments. it’s been picked up by the new york times.
