July 10, 2011 - Last week, William Wan and Peter Finn of the Washington Post reported that at least 50 countries have now purchased or developed pilotless military drones. Recently, the Chinese had more than two dozen models in some stage of development on display at the Zhuhai Air Show, some of which they are evidently eager to sell to other countries.

LONDON, England - July 5, 2011 - It's a standard scenario across the world - the computer crashes and we scream exactly what we think at the flickering screen.

But we may soon have to learn to bite our tongues - or risk the wrath of being shouted at by the machine we've just cursed.

This is because scientists are building a voice-activated device that can interact with people in a “natural and intelligent way”.

Artificial intelligence will help it become familiar with a user's voice, with the ultimate goal that it can understand, speak and behave like a human.

LOS ANGELES, Kalifornia (PNN) - June 24, 2011 - Officials at a Los Angeles County jail plan to test out an invisible heat-beam weapon - a torture device - originally developed by the military as a way to subdue brawling inmates by making them feel "intolerable heat."

The technology, called an Assault Intervention Device, is a non lethal-weapon developed by Raytheon Company. It employs a form of torture in order to quell prisoner dissent.

LONDON, England - June 17, 2011 (PNN) - A new generation of battery-free surveillance devices, which can be implanted under the skin and transmit over huge distances via wireless, have been developed by scientists.

Researchers are working on nano machines that could be injected into the arms of patients and then report back to doctors who are monitoring them from miles away.

WASHINGTON - June 9, 2011 - Billing it as a way to end the one-size-fits-all approach to airport security, the International Air Transport Association on Tuesday unveiled a mock-up of what it called the "Checkpoint of the Future."

Instead of a single screening procedure applied to all fliers, the group envisions that passengers would be divided into risk categories based on information available about them. They would then be directed to one of three lanes: "Known Traveler," "Normal" and "Enhanced Security."

This frightening glimpse into state-of-the-art military weapons development reveals upcoming technology that will utilize flying machines that will be programmed to attack targets directly or indirectly - mark for tracking, stalk, monitor, etc. Freedom fighters must develop counter-technologies to defend against these intrusive devices that most certainly threaten our freedom! The future is here; we must build a defense now!

GENEVA, Switzerland - March 15, 2011 - In a long shot theory, physicists propose that the world's largest atom smasher could be used as a time machine to send a special kind of matter backward in time.

The scientists outline a way to use the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 17-mile long particle accelerator buried underground near Geneva, to send a hypothetical particle called the Higgs singlet to the past.

SAN FRANCISCO, Kalifornia - March 16, 2011 - A former United States Geological Survey scientist says a major quake on the west coast is imminent.

Jim Berkland predicts earthquakes…accurately.

Never heard of him? Perhaps you should - especially if you live on or near the west coast of the United States, or know someone that does.
