    WASHINGTON – Top scientists in Israel are on the verge of a revolutionary breakthrough, creating a cloak that can render a person invisible. In their real-world quest for invisibility, scientists at Ben-Gurion University have developed a device that scatters light away from an object so it cannot be detected, making the object invisible to the eye. Physicists developed the method for concealing objects based on the study of “metamaterials,” which focuses on exploiting and controlling light by examining how it interacts with objects. Those arrays of minuscule components bend, scatter, transmit or otherwise shape electromagnetic radiation in ways that no...
  • Clinton's doctor declares her 'fit to serve' as president

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign on Wednesday released more information about her health that depicted her as a healthy 68-year-old woman with low cholesterol (without taking a statin) and seasonal allergies. She also takes a thyroid medication, and as the campaign has previously disclosed, she takes a blood thinner, Coumadin. A letter from her physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack — released in a move designed to reassure voters just days after she was diagnosed with pneumonia — declares that Clinton "continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as President of the United States."
  • Hillary Clinton's health is now a real issue

    NY Post ^ | September 11, 2016
    Clinton's health is no longer a background issue in the presidential race. The footage of her entry to her ride out is especially troubling: She's leaning oddly backward as she waits, and plainly almost collapses as she moves toward the vehicle; a mob of aides then conveys her inside. Also telling is that her staff avoided alerting the press that travels with her - and were left to catch up after noticing her missing. Clinton's brief walkabout some 90 minutes later, after she'd rested in daughter Chelsea's apartment, settles nothing. Nor does word late Sunday that she has pneumonia. We...
  • Democrats wonder and worry: Why isn’t Clinton far ahead of Trump?

    NEW YORK — With Election Day less than two months away, Democrats are increasingly worried that Hillary Clinton has not built a formidable lead against Donald Trump despite his historic weaknesses as a national party candidate. Even the Democratic nominee’s advisers acknowledge that she must make changes, and quickly. Clinton leads Trump by three percentage points, having fallen from her high of nine points in August, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average. That tightening has frustrated many Clinton allies and operatives, who are astonished that she isn’t running away with this race, given Trump’s deep unpopularity and his continuing stream...
  • 'Cloaking' device uses ordinary lenses to hide objects across range of angles

    09/29/2014 12:38:35 PM PDT · by Red Badger · 31 replies ^ | Sep 27, 2014 | Provided by University of Rochester
    Inspired perhaps by Harry Potter's invisibility cloak, scientists have recently developed several ways—some simple and some involving new technologies—to hide objects from view. The latest effort, developed at the University of Rochester, not only overcomes some of the limitations of previous devices, but it uses inexpensive, readily available materials in a novel configuration. "There've been many high tech approaches to cloaking and the basic idea behind these is to take light and have it pass around something as if it isn't there, often using high-tech or exotic materials," said John Howell, a professor of physics at the University of Rochester....
  • Stealth coating based on squid skin could make soldiers invisible to night vision

    Telegraph ^ | 9/10/13 | Richard Gray
    Camouflaged clothing that mimics squid skin is being developed to hide soldiers from night vision equipment.Most camouflage materials used to disguise soldiers and vehicles during the day show up easily when viewed through night vision goggles and infrared cameras. This is because leaves and other foliage reflect infrared light in a different way to other fabrics and materials. However, scientists at the University of California Irvine have created a new “stealth” coating that can change the way it reflects infrared light on command. The films, which are around 100,000 times thinner than a human hair, can be switched on and...

    A 30-second video of a newborn baby shows the infant silently snoozing in its crib, his breathing barely perceptible. But when the video is run through an algorithm that can amplify both movement and color, the baby’s face blinks crimson with each tiny heartbeat. The amplification process is called Eulerian Video Magnification, and is the brainchild of a team of scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. The team originally developed the program to monitor neonatal babies without making physical contact. But they quickly learned that the algorithm can be applied to other videos...

    If you’ve ever used the Internet, you have an online identity. Maybe it’s slight: a Hotmail account here, a comment on a news story there. Or maybe you’ve been more prolific, leaving a trail of usernames, accounts, messages, and profiles across the digital landscape. In any case, an active internet user owes it to himself to do a bit of self-Googling. What you’ll find will be both enlightening and humbling—even worrying.

    He thinks. Therefore he isn't. Somehow, Herman Cain has become invisible. Media pundits tell us again and again that the Republican rank and file aren't happy with any of the leading contenders for the 2012 presidential nomination, that these voters really want an alternative. The pundits speculate endlessly on possible additions to the field: Mitch Daniels, Chris Christie, perhaps even Jeb Bush. But despite the fact that Cain has a large and enthusiastic following, the former Godfather's Pizza CEO rarely seems to merit even a mention. Recently, 15,000 supporters crowded Atlanta's Olympic Park, where they boisterously cheered Cain's eloquent and...

    I've seen a lot of camouflage in my days, but this has got to be the best I have ever seen. It reminds me of how well Rambo's was when he was all covered in mud, but you never saw him until he grabbed the Russian in Rambo II Of the almost impossible to detect camouflage.

    A new material that could be used to create a real-life Harry Potter-style "invisibility cloak" has been designed by British scientists. The material, called "Metaflex", may in future provide a way of manufacturing fabrics that manipulate light. Metamaterials have already been developed that bend and channel light to render objects invisible at longer wavelengths. Visible light poses a greater challenge because its short wavelength means the metamaterial atoms have to be very small. So far such small light-bending atoms have only been produced on flat, hard surfaces unsuitable for use in clothing.

    India added new fire power and muscle to its Navy when Defence Minister A K Antony formally launched 'Shivalik' -- the S-class Frigate -- at the Mazagon Dock on Thursday. The Shivalik is a multirole stealth ship incorporating advanced signature suppression and signature management features along with both air defence and anti-sub marine capabilities. Though the ship is not completely invisible, it would be hard to detect on the high seas. Armed with surface-to-surface and surface-to-air missiles, Shivalik carries two advanced helicopters and is equipped with state-of-the-art CODOG (Combined Diesel or Gas Turbine) propulsion system along with most of comprehensive...

    This book is dedicated to an anonymous member of Spain's Secret Police. On January 27, 1960, during a brief encounter on a quiet back street in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, I asked him for advice on how best to avoid any problems in the land of Generalissimo Francisco Franco. The advice he gave me has served me well for forty years. He said there was only one way to avoid troubles with the authorities: "Make yourself invisible." J. J. Luna

    In today's technological age, it might seem silly for intelligent people to consider a spiritual world where beings we cannot see might exist. Oh it's fine to read books and watch Hollywood movies about the afterlife and spirits that roam the netherworld but that's all make believe, not the real world. In the real world we are taught that reality consists of what we can touch, taste, see, hear, smell, and that the spirit world is for those weak minded individuals who use religion as a crutch to get through the day.  However, what if I told you that...

    If your superpower of choice would be to make things disappear, you may be surprised to see how close researchers are to making it come true. Our exclusive video, above, shows a device created at Duke University, North Carolina, that can make objects invisible to microwaves. The team thinks its technology could be modified to work for infrared and visible light too, making it able to hide 3D objects from human eyes. The way the device steers microwaves could also give a boost to wireless communications – improving signals indoors or underground, for example.

    I suppose a lot of people wonder why a loving God would keep Himself so hidden and unseen when so many people it seems are looking for Him. Some people I suppose wonder why God doesn’t just make Himself known to everyone and ‘just let them decide’ after His physical revelation is made clear? First off I want to point out that for God to make Himself physically known to us, God would have had to have been physically with everyone right from the beginning of creation, to the present, as people are born every single second, in great numbers,...

    San Francisco Supervisor Tom Ammiano introduced an ordinance Tuesday to give every person living in San Francisco the option of obtaining a city-issued identification card, a plan those who favor tougher restrictions on immigration say would undermine federal law. The proposal - supported by Mayor Gavin Newsom and several other supervisors - comes as San Francisco faces criticism nationwide for its status as a sanctuary city, which means city policy forbids the use of any city resources to enforce federal immigration law. The city also is in the process of filling a newly created post of "immigrant rights administrator," whose...
