Power of advertising.
The disjointed unfocussed direction of android. Google just doesn't seem to have handled it best it could have.
Microsoft coming late to the game. Win 8 pads could be huge. I am holding out till they are on the market before i commit.

Surely that is an obvious design flaw...

Looking for info on scientists in ID camp
There are alot of claims about scientists accepting ID, but when we look at their credentials they tend to be involved in chemical engineering or computer science etc. Very few seem to have any experience in biological sciences.

I'm on a hunt for data about this, but so far I've had no luck. Can anyone here point me to a good source?

Re: Looking for info on scientists in ID camp
Or they are M.D.'s like our own Dr. Har-Har-Hardy. Or even worse yet, chiropractors and naturopaths

Re: Looking for info on scientists in ID camp
As a biochemist Behe might be marginal. Sternberg (taxonomist ?) and Gauger (zoologist) seem to be the main ones with a claim to be biological scientists. Wells doesn't seem to have done any post-doctoral work. so I wouldn't count him.

Re: Looking for info on scientists in ID camp
I'm sort of after the small fry and the grass roots people, not overt or full-time activists. I should have explained this.

Re: Looking for info on scientists in ID camp
In that case I don't think you'll see anything more than the claim that there are lots of them but that they are keeping quite for fear of reprisals (although any such fear would have more to do with ID scaremongering than reality).

Re: Looking for info on scientists in ID camp
Quite how we can tell you about covert IDists I'm not sure. For a broader swathe there is always the DI's Scientific Dissent document list, though as you say the relevance of the scientists is variable.

Bogus or what?
What is going on here? Is it possible that this is the result of static electricity? The paint brush might stand on it's own but the broom? As far as I know, the Calgary Herald is a legitimate paper.

April 1st has apparently arrived early this year - that's my opinion.

Re: Bogus or what?
This made me wonder,

George Lolos, a physics professor at the University of Regina, said it all has to do with static electricity, the buildup of electric charge on the surface of objects. For example, if somebody was doing work on a carpet and then touched the broom, static electricity would circulate between the bristles and make the broom stand straight up.

Re: Bogus or what?
Well, I went and got one of my paintbrushes and stood it up on its bristles.
It took a single attempt. It was very easy to achieve.
I used neither static electricity nor magic nor ghosts.

I do not have a broom to try out.


Tradition and heritage are all dead people's baggage. Stop carrying it!

Re: Bogus or what?
I just stood a broom on its end. It was surprisingly easy. As I had not been sweeping with it, static electricity was not involved.
