The security team at Wilzig's 10-acre Water Mill estate, dubbed the Playboy Mansion of the Hamptons, used the flying device to make sure the 700 partygoers behaved themselves and to prevent gatecrashers at the Garden of Eden themed bash on Saturday where clothing was optional. Partygoers were handed fig leaves as they entered the celebrations and many followed the undress code, the New York Daily News' gossip column Confidential reported.

  • Yearlong Mars Simulation Nears End on Mauna Loa

    Six scientists are close to wrapping up a year of near isolation in a Mars simulation on a Hawaii mountain. The scientists are housed in a dome on Mauna Loa and can go outside only in spacesuits, the Hawaii Tribune-Herald reported. They manage limited resources while conducting research and working to avoid personal conflicts. Communication is delayed the 20 minutes, the length it would take to relay messages from Mars. Kim Binsted, principal investigator for the Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation, said this simulation is the second-longest of its kind after a mission that lasted 520 days in Russia....

    Researchers fabricate biobots by growing living cells, usually from heart or skeletal muscle of rats or chickens, on scaffolds that are nontoxic to the cells. If the substrate is a polymer, the device created is a biohybrid robot — a hybrid between natural and human-made materials. If you just place cells on a molded skeleton without any guidance, they wind up in random orientations. That means when researchers apply electricity to make them move, the cells' contraction forces will be applied in all directions, making the device inefficient at best. So to better harness the cells' power, researchers turn to...

    Some rodents are more than scurrying little mammals. Some rodents are auteurs. This brazen little squirrel director steals a GoPro camera and makes a video shot entirely from its point of view, giving us a private tour of the trees from up above. After snatching the camera off the ground, it takes off running and scales the tree, showing us a day in the life of the intrepid little explorer. Thankfully, the squirrel also had excellent manners, and made sure to drop the camera back down where the owner could easily grab it and share this visionary masterpiece.

    Decades of authoritarian one party rule have perhaps reduced one man's ability to question authority as a Chinese bloke awaiting the birth of his child was erroneously whisked in for a haemorrhoidectomy. Doctors at Shenyang Hunnan Xinqu Hospital mistook Mr Wang for another chap with a bad case of the pink grapes and whisked him into the operating theatre, according to a report in Bandao City News. Wang thought he was going to help his wife with the delivery of their child but then medics asked him to drop his pants and jump onto the operating table. “It felt strange,...

Just a month ago, on July 8, Massachusetts GOP Governor Charlie Baker signed the outrageous “transgender bathroom” bill into law. It was no secret that like all LGBT “non-discrimination” laws, this represented yet another legal hammer to impose a perverse agenda on an unwilling society. Now the LGBT movement and the pro-homosexual Baker Administration are turning up the heat. Today’s Boston Globe features a chilling article: “In state first, a prison guard becomes a woman.”...

According to a Wikipedia article created last night, Interstate 22, formerly known as "Corridor X" and "Ye Olden Highway," is considered to be North America's very first construction project. Native American documents dating back to 800 AD show plans to clear a path from Memphis to Birmingham, giving Midwestern tribes of 19-22 year-olds the quickest route to destroying Alabama's pristine beaches...
