‘virtual unwrapping’: unlocks writings in the ancient En-Gedi scroll

1,700-Year-Old Dead Sea Scroll ‘Virtually Unwrapped,’ Revealing Text     By Laura Geggel

“The En-Gedi scroll, a text that includes part of the Book of Leviticus in the Hebrew Bible that was ravaged by fire about 1,400 years ago, is now readable, thanks to a complex digital analysis called “virtual unwrapping.”

Rather than physically unfurl the scroll, which would have destroyed the crumbling artifact, experts digitally scanned the document, and then virtually flattened the scanned results, allowing scholars to read its ancient text.”

Vote Theft: Votes Counted As Fractions

“Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the vote decide everything.”    -Joseph Stalin

 

A real-time demo of the most devastating election theft mechanism yet found, with context and explanation. Demonstration uses a real voting system and real vote databases and takes place in seconds across multiple jurisdictions. Over 5000 subcontractors and middlemen have the access to perform this for any or all clients. It can give contract signing authority to whoever the user chooses. All political power can be converted to the hands of a few anonymous subcontractors. It’s a product. It’s scalable. It learns its environment and can adjust to any political environment, any demographic. It runs silently, invisibly, and can produce plausible results that really pass for the real thing.

Surprise: Dinosaur Soft Tissue

The discovery of soft tissue from dinosaur bones thought to be millions of years old has raised some new questions about how old these fossils really are?  The presence of Carbon-14, Amino acids,  and structures that resemble soft tissue of a much younger origin, may cause reassessement of some long held views about dinosaurs and other fossils.

As her desperation grows, so too does her quest for knowledge. And the deeper she goes, a more heightened sense of danger develops that preys on her state of mind, as she attempts to discover the root cause of her son’s illness.

Catchy Plastic Surgery Parody Is Hilarious

Meet Dr. Cory Torgerson. Described as “one of Canada’s most talented and prominent cosmetic plastic surgeons, focusing on head, neck, and facial plastic surgery,” and described by me as “a guy I never would have imagined to make a parody video of anything, let alone that huge hit ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ by The Weeknd.”

Yet his video does just that, and it’s actually hilarious!

The video features patients before, during, and after cosmetic procedures, and features some incredible lyrics like “the Botox keeps me beautiful, I’ll stay forever young.”

A team of Japanese researchers have this week demonstrated the first technology that not only brings the mythology of levitation to life but leap frogs it to create a tractor beam, lifting and moving objects across 3 dimensions using sound alone.

Sound is not often thought of as being a physical force, music may make you move your feet but no one would believe that it could lift you out of your seat. That was until this week when an international team of researchers led by Bristol University demonstrated the latest advancements of acoustic projection that is able to build acoustic holograms that can levitate objects or act as a tractor beam.

SOLAR IMPULSE 2  –  The Airplane of Perpetual Endurance

Solar Impulse is not the first solar airplane, but it is the first to fly day and night, without any fuel, only using energy stored in its batteries. It is also the first to have achieved an oceanic crossing: 5 days and nights from Nagoya, Japan, to Kalaeloa, Hawaii. Behind Solar Impulse’s achievements, there is always the same goal: show that if an airplane can fly several days and nights in a row with no fuel, then clean technologies can be used on the ground to reduce our energy consumption, and create profit and jobs.
