Zombie Apocalypse Right here We Come!: French Lab Loses 2,000 Vials Of Deadly Virus

killer-virus-goes-missing.jpg Nope, this one’s just urine. A lab in France has confessed to losing even more than 2,000 vials including parts of the deadly Sars coronavirus. The researchers state not to worry however, due to the fact that the vials just contained PARTS of the virus, not the entire thing. Or a minimum of that’s what they’re making use of as a coverup. Any person else feel kinda unwell all of an unexpected?

A regular stock check at Paris’ Pasteur Institute exposed that 2,349 tubes including fragments of the virus accountable for the fatalities of 774 individuals in 2002 were missing, the center named after French chemist Louis Pasteur stated. The institute was quick to assure the public and said that the contents of the missing vials had no contagious capacity. They included just part of the virus and had no ability to spread. “Independent professionals referred by health authorities have qualified such possible as ‘non-existing’ according to the available evidence and literature on the survival of the Sars virus,” the institute said.

I’m pretty sure this is how Homeowner Evil began. “No, it’s not actually.” YOU SHUT UP. Oh spunk, that reminds me: exactly what’s your home address– I wished to send you something. “What?” Simply a little something? “Is it a vial of something?” Possibly. Thanks to Thaylor H, who is 99 % positive this was an act of terrorism and the zombie apocalypse is only days away.

Gorgeous glass sculptures let you see into the world’s most deadly viruses

Viruses are usually depicted as ugly, scary, almost weapon-like blobs just waiting to meddle inside of your body, but Luke Jerram sees them as something different. There isn’t really a color to viruses after all — they’re smaller than the wavelength of visible light — and as mere smears when viewed under a microscope, there’s plenty of room left open when deciding how to illustrate them.

Since 2004, Jerram has been turning viruses and other pathogens into stunning glass sculptures that are just as eerie as they are beautiful as part of an ongoing series titled “Glass Microbiology.” He chooses some of the most feared and deadly subjects out there too, making chilling portraits of everything from HIV to malaria.

Of course, creating…

Skier saved from deadly avalanche by airbag backpack

ABS

Considering the pain and loss she’s just endured, you may have a hard time convincing professional skier Elyse Saugstad that she’s a lucky woman, but it’s true. Saugstad was tackling Tunnel Creek in the Cascade Mountains with a group of other experienced backcountry skiers, when a large sheet of snow broke loose from the side of the mountain. Elyse and three others were sent hurtling 3,000 feet down the slope, sadly, only she survived the ordeal. Her almost miraculous escape was thanks in large part to the inflatable airbag system she wore. The safety gear has been available for sometime in Europe, but it only recently started making a splash here in the US. The large bladders filled with nitrogen helped keep her near the top of the avalanche, making it easier for her to breathe once the snow had settled and easier for rescuers to find her. Hit up the source link for an interview with Elyse Saugstad.

Apple today released “GarageBand” that turns your iPad into a full-featured recording studio. Using native multi-Touch gestures, you can play pianos, organs, guitars, drums, and basses on your iPad. It’s an ideal combo for Disc-Jockeys, music teachers and for newbie like me.

Use Multi-Touch gestures to play pianos, organs, guitars, drums, and basses on your iPad. They sound and play like their counterparts, but let you do things you could never do on a real instrument. Enjoy a full range of Smart Instruments that make you sound like a pro – even if you’ve never played a note before.

Then mix up to eight tracks to create a song you can share.

• Strum chords on acoustic and electric Smart Guitars, or trigger fingerpicking patterns for popular chords.
• Groove with an onscreen electric or upright Smart Bass by tapping on chords.

Create a song anywhere you go.
• Arrange and mix your song with up to eight tracks using Touch Instruments, audio recordings, and loops.
• Trim and place musical regions exactly where you want them to play.

Switched On: Kin’s seven deadly sins

Each week Ross Rubin contributes Switched On, a column about consumer technology.

There may have been a lot of behind-the-scenes machinations at Microsoft and Verizon that resulted in the discontinuation of the Kin One and the Kin Two, but there were also many marketplace miscues that resulted in the demise of the handsets. Here, then, were Kin’s seven deadly sins:

Lust. With the Kin handsets, Microsoft was too eager to get its hands into the pockets of young social networkers for whom the smartphone market had proven elusive. The key paradox of this was that the Kin data plan was the same for that of other smartphones at Verizon, and that continued to shut out those who aspired to mobile digital sharing nirvana.

Gluttony. If Microsoft was angling to get Verizon to offer a sweetheart deal for Kin data, it certainly didn’t help its cause with the automatic backup of rich media to the Kin Studio website. If there was one aspect to the Kin handsets operation that may pave the way toward future success, it was the Silverlight-based web interface to all the media that was captured with the device. This also allowed Microsoft and Sharp to minimize the amount of on-device storage. However, constantly backing up high-resolution photos and even standard-definition videos to the cloud required a lot of bandwidth, making it difficult for Verizon to justify a “light” data usage plan for Kin users.
