0004 Ever the Optimist – Cloaking Device, Deflector Shields, Fantastic Fails - What Gets My Goat

EOriginally published 07-07-2013 Hello and welcome back to the ‘Ever the Optimist’podcast. We’re back and working on some audio hang-ups, but let’s get going anyway! Remember, you canLike “Ever the Optimist” on Facebookand as always you can find links and discussions of show topics in our show notes atwww.wyethdigital.com/optimist Question of the Week Nature.com reports that: “electrical engineers have used lasers to create a cloak that can hide communications in a ‘time hole’, so that it seems as if they were never sent. The method, published today inNature1,is the first that can cloak data streams sent at the rapid rates typically seen in telecommunications systems. It opens the door to ultra-secure transmission schemes, and may also provide a way to better shield information from noise corruption.” So the obvious Question of the Week: Given that the NSA and other intelligence agencies have been data-mining and tapping our communications, would you like to be able to hide...

0003 Ever the Optimist: Mammoth Park, Clarke Fail and Teen Detent - What Gets My Goat

EOriginally published06-02-2013 Hello and welcome back to the ‘Ever the Optimist’ podcast. We’re back and raring to go, so let’s get started! Remember, you can Like “Ever the Optimist” on Facebook and as always you can find links and discussions of show topics in our show notes at www.wyethdigital.com/optimist Question of the week: Russian researchers have discovered a prehistoric mammoth carcass in the New Siberian Islands in the arctic circle, that was so well preserved that when they began to remove the ice from around it’s belly, thick red blood began to flow out. Samples of blood, muscle tissue, teeth and bones have been sent to university labs in Yakutsk. A South Korean team, known for cloning a dog, have expressed interest in cloning the mammoth, which was about 60 years old when it died some 10,000 years ago. So the obvious Question of the Week is: Should we do this? Bonus question: If successful, what should happen to the live mammoth? Future Tech: A NASA scientist gi...
