Italian biologists decry the use of daylight saving time because it distracts biological circadian rhythms and I agree with them.

According to an article published on "Science" magazine the mass difference between the proton and the neutron, which is heavier by 0.14% is the optimal one for a Finely Tuned Universe, which allows for the appearance of life forms.This reminds me of the GAIA hypothesis.

Fabian Cancellara e' caduto in una gara e si e'fratturato il solito collar bone. Niente Fiandra e Parigi-Roubaix anche per lui dopo Tom Boonen.

As a answer to Chris I believe that a captain would choose to be shot rather than leaving a terrorist to enter the flight deck.I have a brother who is a sea captain and I know how they feel.Don't mention Schettino, he is an exception, not the rule.

The best way to keep terrorists out of airplanes is to screen the passengers before allowing them on board. I have flown a few times with El Al and you get a first interview by a pretty girl. Then a second interview by another girl and may God help you if only a detail is different from the first interview. It takes about one hour, so you have to check in three hours before your departure time.

I still think that a captain should have a "root" password able to open any door in any circumstance. Imagine a hostess fighting a madman.

It was said by a lady in a short video at the end of the course. I would have welcomed a more detailed information but that was all.

As I wrote in Italian Cafe a captain should always have the power to enter the cabin, no matter what others may do.Those who wrote a regulation forbidding this should be treated as criminals.

I can barely imagine what the captain must have felt when he realized that his copilot was bringing him and the whole crowd of people behind his back to death. That thought was worse than death.

Many security measures are simply stupid, like the one forbidding carrying liquids aboard, which was laughed by all explosives experts. But to forbid a captain to reenter the cabin because there is a madman or a potential terrorist in it is not stupid. It is criminal.

It is totally stupid not to allow a captain to regain his place of command and control in any case, no matter who is in the cockpit. Most software attacks on banks and other institutions are committed by insiders, not by hackers.It is the same for airplanes.

It is official. A French judge said that the copilot locked the door and left out the captain while piloting a suicidal descent The reasons are not known.

I received from my Higgs Boson course of Edinburgh University the notion that the Higgs Boson causes the Sun to burn slowly and give us a temperate climate. So we should be grateful to the Higgs Boson.

I have a 2 TB hard disk on my latest PC. It is a HP Pavilion 500-152ea and I suspect it is a Seagate hybrid. No information is given on the brochure. Hardware manuals do not exist, even online. Boot time in Windows 8.1 is about 2 minutes.

They are a kind of "write only" memory, which was advertised by mistake on a technical magazine, which received a number of requests for more details on it and the editor had to explain how this mistake had happened.

The older OCZ Vertex Plus is performing substantially better then the Samsung. I took it off this laptop and put it a a second disk on my older SUN WS as a swap disk.

My data are those of the hdparm tool of Linux.The performance of the Samsung 840 is vastly inferior to the one advertised.
