Senator Chuck Grassley has introduced an E-Verify bill designed to expand the employment verification program nationwide. The bill would make all employers in the United States participate in E-Verify, with respect to all employees, whether recruited or referred and would enhance the enrollment process through the addition of biometric data such as facial photographs. E-Verify is an Internet-based system that allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.
For humans, the technology behind harnessing CRISPR could empower us to alter our own genetic code. With this power, as the saying goes, comes great responsibility. And with this power comes great risk. The debate on human genetic modification, which assuredly will arise as CRISPR advances, will carry more weight than debates about genetically modified crops. Already people squirm at the notion of creating something that did not naturally occur. That said, the word “natural” has no simple definition in the context of evolution and human-modified organisms, which includes our domestication of useful animals and plants over the millennia. We should embrace human genetic modification…
The Race To Hack Our Brains And The Road To Becoming BORG Could Get A Little More Interesting Next Month
There is a school of thought that human life will one day be replaced by artificially intelligent super computers that, at the very least, will have the semblance of consciousness. But for those who want to stave off the computer colonisation of Mankind, there is a race to hack our brains and connect them to something with a little more processing power. That’s right, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. This week, Elon Musk got the internet excited when he suggested he will make an announcement next month on his bid to combine human and machine intelligence via his plan for a neural lace.
NOT MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD—Pregnancy Without Men Comes Closer As New Research Makes Babies From Skin Cells
Could babies one day be made with skin cells? As far-fetched as this idea seems, it’s a possibility that scientists are now exploring after they successfully produced healthy mice using a process called in vitro gametogenesis (IVG). This is a revolutionary method involving embryonic stem cells that are reprogramed to become viable sex cells. In the mice experiment, scientists made early stage mouse eggs from stem cells and grew them in the lab. Once the eggs matured, they fertilized them with mouse sperm and demonstrated that they could also be successfully implanted into a surrogate female mouse.
All the characters in Interstellar are convinced that bulk beings exist, though they use that name only rarely. Usually, the characters call the bulk beings “They.” A reverential They. Early in the movie, Amelia Brand (played by Anne Hathaway) says to widowed astronaut Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), “And whoever They are, They appear to be looking out for us. That wormhole lets us travel to other stars. It came along right as we needed it.” One of Christopher Nolan’s clever and intriguing ideas is to imagine that They are actually our descendants: humans who, in the far future, evolve to acquire an additional space dimension and live in the bulk.
Upcoming SKYWATCH Special Investigative Reports (Feb-March) Will Broadcast In Tandem With Online Series And, Among Other Things, Look At Special Mountains And Locations Like This Prehistoric Sun Temple To Explain Where Mysterious & Advanced Math Knowledge Was Derived
The mystery of the Golden ratio deepens, thanks to a recent discovery by University of Arizona mathematics professor Sherry Towers. While studying an 800-year-old Pueblo Sun Temple in Colorado’s Mesa Verde National Park, Towers noticed that the dimensions of the structure seemed eerily familiar to her. After taking detailed measurements of the site using aerial imagery, Towers found that despite lacking a written language or number system, the Pueblo people constructed a structure which has near-perfect dimensions with an error rate of less than 1%: “The genius of the site’s architects cannot be underestimated.
Now, if the mental image of flaming snakes isn’t weird enough, the prophet Isaiah twice referred to flying serpents (saraph `uwph, in Isaiah 14:29 and 30:6). And in his famous throne room vision, Isaiah saw: “…the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew” (Isaiah 6:1-2 (ESV)
