Gamers Can Now Help Stanford University Researchers with the “FoldingHome” Project Now you can help fight cancer simply by playing video games from the comfort of your own home. Researchers at Stanford University have teamed up with Sony Computer Entertainment America, the makers of PlayStation, on the “FoldingHome” project. FoldingHome helps researchers study the folding, and more important, misfolding of human proteins, which can lead to understanding the cause and cure of diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and cystic fibrosis. In order to study protein folding, researchers need more than just one super computer, but the massive processing power of thousands of networked computers. Previously, PCs have been the only option for scientists studying this, but now, they have a new, more powerful tool—PLAYSTATION 3 (PS3). The PS3’s cell processor is about 20 times faster at folding than a standard PC, giving even greater results in real time, allowing scientists to not only see but navigate the molecule in 3D. To take part voluntarily, gamers just need to click on the FoldingHome icon within the main menu of the PS3. Then whenever their game system is idle, it will automatically begin the real-time simulations and the PS3’s graphic chip actually allows you to watch the process first hand. You can even manipulate and study the protein strand yourself. Produced for Sony Computer Entertainment America

Just to get you started with programming. Note that you need to download the software python first here: *******www.python****/download/ If you're using windows, download the "Python 2.5.1(this version may change) Windows installer". Then install it. And now, open "IDLE (Python GUI)". And note also that's just to get you initiated in a programming language without the reading stuff. Feel free to pause at any time to read the instructions. Also, to fit in the metacafe video scale, some characters might not be too legible, particularly after "a", "b", "c".... Note that it's just an equal sign (=). If you want to see it in its original format, I've uploaded it here. Download it here: *******www.acubist****/np/pythonvid.html

Honda Motor Co., Ltd. has further advanced intelligence technologies enabling its advanced humanoid robot ASIMO (****) to act autonomously and perform uninterrupted service to office guests. Honda (****) developed an intelligence technology that enhances smooth movement by enabling ASIMO to choose between stepping back and yielding the right-of-way or continuing to walk based on the predicted movement of oncoming people. Honda also developed a new intelligence technology related to ASIMO's ability to perform tasks such as carrying a tray and pushing a cart. In addition, a newly added function enables ASIMO to automatically charge its battery when its remaining battery level falls below a certain level. Furthermore, a new comprehensive system was developed so that multiple ASIMOs can share tasks by adjusting to the situation and work together in coordination to provide uninterrupted service. For example, if one ASIMO is idled while recharging, other ASIMO robots will step in and perform assigned tasks.

Land Rover has revealed an exciting vision of its future with the LRX concept at the Detroit Motor Show. The three-door LRX is more compact, lighter and features sustainable technology. It addresses the needs of a changing world and offers the potential of 120 g/km CO2 emissions. Shorter than the Freelander 2 / LR2 and 205 mm (8.1 in) lower, the LRX is conceived as using a 2.0-litre, turbodiesel hybrid, capable of running on bio-diesel. Combined with other technologies, this powertrain could reduce fuel consumption by as much as 30% compared with other comparable 4x4s. The concept's integrated Electric Rear Axle Drive (ERAD) would allow LRX to use electric drive alone at lower speeds while retaining full and even improved 4x4 ability in tough conditions. The Integrated Starter-Generator (ISG) function would stop the engine automatically when the vehicle halts in traffic, so the engine does not idle needlessly, and restart it quickly and smoothly as required. LRX also incorporates Land Rover's acclaimed Terrain Response system, which optimises vehicle drivability and comfort, as well as maximising traction. On LRX, this includes a new and efficiency-focused 'Eco' mode. LRX's novel design approaches would further improve efficiencies by reducing vehicle weight. These include exposed seat structures, roof and instrument panel as well as replacing the glass for the side windows and roof with SABIC Innovative Plastics polycarbonate, which is around 40% lighter. The polycarbonate also blocks virtually all UV light while special nano-technology within the material reduces infra-red transmission, helping to keep the interior cool. Even the choice of premium-quality trim materials reflects Land Rover's deep thinking about sustainability, with vegetable-tanned leather, extensive use of aluminium, carpeting made of felt from sustainable sources and a 'fine suede' on the door inserts and headliner made from 100% recycled plastic bottles and fibres. TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS Length: 4351 mm / 171.3 in Width (excluding mirrors): 1895 mm / 74.6 in Width (including mirrors): 2083 mm / 82.0 in Height: 1535 mm / 60.4 in Wheelbase: 2660 mm / 104.7 in Engine (proposed): 2.0-litre turbodiesel (Federalised) CO2 emissions (potential): 120 g/km (on European combined drive cycle) Produced for Land Rover

The birthplace of Choy Lee Fut was King Mui, a village in Ngai Sai (or West Bank of two coastal ledges) in Sun Wui district or county of Kwangtung province. Since the Sung Dynasty (960-1280 A.D.), the region around the rugged coastal ledges had been a stronghold of dedicated revolutionaries against the harsh and tyrannical rulings of those in power. The inclination to the martial arts has always been an integrated part of life and custom. This was the background to Choy Lee Fut's coming into being. The West Bank or Ngai Sai area was divided into twenty-six villages of different clans namely Chan, Lee, Cheung, Wong, Ho, Lok, Chung, Yeung etc. The clan of Chan was particularly prosperous as its clansmen resided in five villages and King Mui was one of them. The genealogical order of the clan were arranged as Sai, Tak, Chok, Ko, Yee, Jik, Yuen, Sing, Tai, Din, Sun, Mo, Yin, Yik, Chuen, Fong, Wing, Hau, Yin, and Leung. It was also arranged as Sai, Tak, Chok, Ko, Yee, Jik, Yuen, Sing, Fong, Lap, Wan, Chor, Chun, Kok, Hin, Chin, Cheung, Hau, Yeung, Yau. These were also the arrangement of two rows of spiritual tablets arranged in the ancestral temple. The founder of Choy Lee Fut, Chan Heung, was from King Mui. He was first taught by fellow clansman, Chan Yuen Wu for some ten years. Later, Chan Heung was referred to Lee Yau Shan with whom he spent several years. Finally, Chan Heung went to Lau Fou Shan ( Mount Lau Fou), where he spent some eight years with a monk named Choy Fook. As Chan Heung had absorbed a great deal of kungfu, he thought it only right to create a system of his own, drawing on his long years of learning under his mentors. Being a man of principles, he paid due respect to his teachers by naming his creation Choy Lee Fut. Choy and Lee being the surnames ( or last names) of his two mentors Choy Fook and Lee Yau Shan who both had taught him authentic Siu Lum kungfu. The Fut (Buddhism) comes from the fighting art of the Buddhist devotees. Chan Heung had two sons, On Pak and Koon Pak. Chan Koon Pak also had two sons, Man bun and Yiu Chi. Chan Yiu Chi had two sons, Wan Hon and Sun Chu, and a daughter, Chan Kit Fong, who now resides in the U.S.A. Chan Koon Pak, the second son of Chan Heung, was a very adept and intelligent person. At a rather young age, he had mastered the art his father had passed onto him. But Chan Koon Pak, chose to become a merchant and settled in Kong Moon. Under persistent persuasion, he did come out for a stint as the head instructor of the Choy Lee Fut school in Kong Moon. Chan Koon Pak later moved to Canton, where he opened a kungfu school as a result of popular request. Countless number of people had come to him for instructions; notably Ngan Yiu Ting, Wong Fook Wing, Wu Kee Biu, Lee Hin Cheung, Choy Pak Tat, Choy Pak Hung, etc. Chan Koon Pak was a disciplinarian and the same stern attitude to learning was also impressed onto his son Yiu Chi. Chan Yiu Chi seldom turned his thoughts off kungfu. Even when sitting idle, his feet could be seen practicing. This kind of incessant work made Chan Yiu Chi, an outstanding exponent of Choy Lee Fut. He represented speed, power, agility and more. Perhaps less known to many people Chan Yiu Chi was also a classical scholar, and he never bragged about or showed off his deadly kungfu skill. At the time of his staying with his father, Chan Koon Pak in Canton, he engaged in the propagation of Choy Lee Fut to the world at large. Requests were received regularly, asking him to teach abroad in San Francisco, Holland, the South Pacific and other overseas countries where there were substantial Chinese population. As Chan Koon Pak was in an advanced age, Yiu Chi did accept, as his father so desired, several posts as kungfu instructor in many secondary and tertiary schools, trade unions, sports clubs and worker's associations. His prominence in kungfu overshadowed his other fields of excellence ; that of poetry and classics.
