Holographic Directed Light to view human insides.

"In a series of mind-bending demos, inventor Mary Lou Jepsen shows how we can use red light to see and stimulate what's inside our bodies and brains. Taking us to the edge of optical physics, Jepsen unveils new technologies that utilize light and sound to track tumors, measure neural activity and could eventually replace the MRI machine with a cheaper, more efficient and wearable system."

Pentlands Pillage (Edinburgh) - Mountain Bike Orienteering Race - Saturday 18th August

After years of taking part in the excellent Scottish Mountain Bike Orienteering (SMBO) races, I have finally been gently coerced into decided to run one of the events.

The beauty of these events is that, due to the fact that you decide upon your own route, they are suitable for all ages and abilities.
Whether you just fancy a short, easy pootle around some paths and tracks you may never have explored before, or you want to push yourself to the very edge of your abilities at the exciting, highly competitive top end. You can ride as hard and as far as you want.

Also, route choice is more important than pure speed, so if you aren't the fastest rider, you can compete by making good route decisions!

Great Britain - Live electricity usage.

Our power generation systems are constantly working in conjunction to deal with demand and the current weather conditions.
The power stations themselves are also changing, with reducing numbers of coal power stations, new nuclear plants and growth in gas, wind, solar and biomass.
People who argue that wind turbines are terrible because sometime the wind doesn't blow are missing the point. Carbon is the driver of global warming, arguably the biggest threat to human existence. Any time the wind is blowing, less carbon is produced by other methods of generation. Also there's less localised air pollution.
