This 47m-year-old skeleton is one of the most significant primate fossil discoveries, hailed by some as 'the missing link' and by others, such as David Attenborough, as proof of evolution. Scientists have long hoped that the Earth might eventually yield an even more ancient fossil that links apes, man and all other primates to the earliest mammals on the planet. Now Ida is rewriting the history of our earliest origins. She is the most complete primate fossil ever found and has proto-anthropoid features, placing her at the base of the anthropoid branch which leads to monkeys, apes, and humans. Here at last, 150 years after the publication of "On The Origin of Species", we have the link that connects us directly with the rest of the animal kingdom. .

The Nerf Sentry Gun was developed as a final project for Cornell University's CS1114 Matlab Robotics class. Jason Wright and Jeremy Blum worked on the gun together, and were awarded coolest final project. You must present it your badge, if no badge is found, you are assaulted with a fiery storm of small nerf darts. All encounters are logged and photos are kept. For more information, including pictures, a feature list, and a download that includes schematics and source code, visit: http://jeremyblum.com/2009/05/15/nerf-sentry-gun_be-afraid/ Visit Jeremy (sciguy14) and Jason (jpwright) online: http://www.jeremyblum.com http://www.jasonline.net Music by Alex Miller: http://www.youtube.com/amiller90 MATLAB SIFT Function by vlfeat.org: http://www.vlfeat.org/~vedaldi/code/sift.html MATLAB twitter Function by Navan Ruthramoorthy: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/20290 MATLAB passive FTP Function by Idin Motedayen: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/6626
http://www.ted.com Behavioral economist Dan Ariely, the author of Predictably Irrational, uses classic visual illusions and his own counterintuitive (and sometimes shocking) research findings to show how we're not as rational as we think when we make decisions.

Jet pack world record attempt 2009 in Knockhill Scotland. Eric Scott of Jet Pack International recently set a new speed record for jetpacks: A surprisingly-fast 61 MPH. The jetpack in question only has enough fuel (mostly hydrogen peroxide converted to water) for about 30-40 seconds of flight, so even though he claims the jetpack achieves about 800 horsepower, he only gets up to 61 MPH. Still, that's far faster than we would have thought, given Mark's experience, but evidently this is an entirely different kind of jetpack.

YouTube user greenman3610 (Peter Sinclair) puts out a weekly series debunking claims put forward by global warming deniers. This episode includes a compelling data visualization on Arctic ice, as Sinclair points out that the total ice mass (as opposed to area) is the most meaningful metric for quantifying polar ice.
