‘Even after all that investment, scanners still aren’t particularly good at finding a particular face in the crowd, for example; variable lighting conditions and angles (not to mention hats) continue to confound the systems.
‘Eventually, the biometrics market — and the government enthusiasm for it — cooled off. The technological development has not. Corporate and academic labs are continuing to find new ways to ID people with more accuracy, and from further away. Here are 11 projects…’
Oldest Murder in US Probably Solved
It was pronounced murder because one of the duelers was cheated
‘William Kelso, Director of Archaeological Research and Interpretation for the Jamestown Rediscovery Project, says new research points to a duel that took place in 1624 between George Harrison and Richard Stephens.
‘Harrison was shot and they believe his remains may be the mystery colonist.

Oh, well they also went ahead and approved the very same toxic pesticide that the EU banned just days earlier over significant health concerns and links to the destruction of the bee population — a population which we need in order to generate a staple crop supply for the entire globe…’

Composting 101 [infographic]
‘I come from a composting AND recycling household, and let me tell you, the amount of trash we have saved is unbelievable. Before composting, we would throw all of our food items in the trash, which would make the house smelly after two days. Thankfully, my mother invested in a compost bin, and now (since we compost and recycle), we throw out the trash about once every week and a half. There is just nothing that has to go into the trash bin anymore!
