The government allows companies to license inventions resulting from federal research in order to expedite their arrival on the marketplace.The system uses smartphones to ask people how they are doing mentally during the day and based on the results can “deliver an automated...

    Is Precognition Real? Cornell University Lab Releases Powerful New Evidence that the Human Mind can Perceive the Future Written By: Ben Goertzel Date Published: November 4, 2010 According to today’s conventional scientific wisdom, time flows strictly forward — from the past to the future through the present. We can remember the past, and we can predict the future based on the past (albeit imperfectly) — but we can’t perceive the future. But if the recent data from the lab of Prof. Daryl Bem at Cornell University is correct, conventional scientific wisdom may need some corrections on this particular point. In...

    (If someone can get this to Gov. Sanford, thank you. Please add to it.) Dear Governor Sanford, You have the chance of a lifetime. When true love emerges in a life, when a soul-mate returns that knowledge, your life has began anew. To put aside preconceptions of what you "should be" to sacrifice what you are sorely requires too hard a price. The route seems simple. Your long time companion and wife and you are in a situation which will probably never heal. Your love for her and the children will live on. Yet your true love, Ms. Chapur, if...

Government officials said there was no reason to...

    Dear Fellow Conservative: In the first bill being rushed through the 110th Congress, liberal House Democrats are attempting to surrender a key aspect of our homeland security to the United Nations. H.R. 1, Mrs. Pelosi and her ultra-liberal pal’s first attempt to draft legislation to make America safe since 9/11, contains language that would subject our country's most effective counter proliferation initiative to limitations imposed by the UN Security Council. The Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI) is a four year-old program, created and led by the United States that allows America and our allies to interdict the transfer of banned weapons...

    SEOUL, South Korea - South Korea said Thursday it will ban the entry of North Korean officials who fall under a U.N. travel restriction — Seoul's first concrete move to enforce sanctions imposed after the North's nuclear test. Unification Minister Lee Jong-seok also said Seoul will control transactions and remittances relating to inter-Korean trade and investment with the North Korean officials, Yonhap news agency reported. A U.N. committee on the sanctions, passed in response to North Korea's Oct. 9 nuclear test, has been working to outline how they will be implemented. Meanwhile, Japan's foreign ministry on Thursday denied a news...

    North Korea tell South sanctions could mean war SEOUL, South Korea (Reuters) -- North Korea warned South Korea on Wednesday against joining U.S.-led sanctions against Pyongyang and said it would take action after any such move by Seoul. South Korea's participation in sanctions would be seen as a serious provocation leading to a "crisis of war" on the Korean peninsula, a North Korean spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland said in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency. The North issued a similar warning in September shortly before it conducted a nuclear test,...

    Asia's WMD Laggards July 24, 2006; Page A14 The Wall Street Journal In the wake of Pyongyang's missile tests this month, the U.N. Security Council passed a unanimous resolution that "requires" member states to work to halt the proliferation of WMD and missile technology to or from North Korea. As it happens, there's a multilateral operation already up and running if more nations would join the effort. Since its creation three years ago, the Proliferation Security Initiative has quickly become the world's most effective check (short of regime change) against WMD traffickers. A U.S.-led initiative, PSI is a new, flexible...

    A program of clandestine action against nuclear and missile traffic to North Korea and Iran is to be intensified after last week's missile tests by the Pyongyang regime. Intelligence agencies, navies and air forces from at least 13 nations are quietly co-operating in a secret war against Pyongyang and Tehran. It has so far involved interceptions of North Korean ships at sea, US agents prowling the waterfronts in Taiwan, multinational naval and air surveillance missions out of Singapore, investigators poring over the books of dubious banks in the former Portuguese colony of Macau and a fleet of planes and...

    Sixty years ago today, an atom bomb exploded over Hiroshima, killing 80,000 people, mostly civilians. Tens of thousands more died from radiation sickness in the years that followed. The memory of that day offers a horrific reminder of what is at stake when the nuclear non-proliferation regime comes under attack as it is today. The direct challenge comes from the nuclear ambitions of Iran and North Korea. Both expose serious shortcomings in the non-proliferation treaty (NPT). It permits non-weapons states to develop nuclear fuel cycles, allowing them legitimately to proceed to the brink of weaponisation. If Iran and North Korea...
