Sir Richard Branson believes that the ideal way for Spain to get out of its current morass of national debt, savage austerity cuts, and social turmoil would be to legalize and tax marijuana.

Starsuckers


Starsuckers demonstrates how celebrity news with no basis in fact gets into print, why newspapers will run press releases almost verbatim, how parents will eagerly sign away the image rights to their kids, how certain mass scale charity events end up helping the performers far more than the causes they designed to support, and how publicists keep accurate but unflattering stories out of the news.

Lyrics:: Blind man ask me forgiveness I won’t deny myself Disrespect you have given Your suffering’s my wealth I feed off pain, force fed to love it And now I swallow whole I’ll never live in the past Let freedom ring with a shotgun blast Burn my fist to the concrete My fear is my strength Power, rage unbound because Been pounded by the streets Cyanide blood burns down the skyline Hatred is purity The bullet connects at last Let freedom ring with a shotgun

Quantum Computer Built Inside a Diamond


Diamonds are forever — or, at least, the effects of this diamond on quantum computing may be. A team that includes scientists from USC has built a quantum computer in a diamond, the first of its kind to include protection against “decoherence” — noise that prevents the computer from functioning properly. The demonstration shows the viability of solid-state quantum computers, which — unlike earlier gas- and liquid-state systems — may represent the future of quantum computing because they can be easily scaled up in size.
