Nikola Tesla - How Edison ruined America

When Tesla arrived in the United States and sought Edison's backing for his new AC devices, therefore, Edison refused to listen.

"Hold up! Spare me that nonsense. It's dangerous. We're set up for direct current in America. People like it, and it's all I'll ever fool with."

Nonetheless Edison offered him a job, promising Tesla fifty thousand dollars if Tesla could redesign Edison's breakdown-prone DC generator designs. Tesla agreed and worked for the better part of a year redesigning the dynamos, also adding new automatic controls of Tesla's own design.

The new generator designs were a vast improvement over Edison's originals. Upon completing the job Tesla went to Edison to collect the $50,000 promised for the task.

"Tesla," Edison replied, "you don't understand our American humor." And Tesla was never paid.

10 years later, life-on-Mars debate still onJSC team hoping fall publication of recent research dispels doubts on meteorite findings

On Aug. 7, 1996, NASA made what future generations may regard as the greatest scientific announcement of all time.

Or not.

That day, in a press conference called by NASA headquarters in advance of a paper in the journal Science, scientists from Johnson Space Center made international headlines with claims they had found evidence of primitive life on Mars.

A decade later, the loose consensus among scientists, journalists and the general public is that the team failed to prove its extraordinary claims.

''It must be 98 percent of the scientific community that have decided there was no conclusive evidence of biology" in the meteorite, said William Schopf, an expert in bacterial fossils at UCLA and one of the most visible skeptics of the JSC team's claims.

Ancient coelacanth caught in Indonesia


"The fish should have died within two hours because this species only lives in deep, cold-sea environment," he said. Lumingas works at the local Sam Ratulangi University, which plans to study the carcass.

The coelacanth (pronounced SEE-la-kanth) was believed to be extinct for 65 million years until one was found in 1938 off Africa's coast, igniting worldwide interest. Several other specimens have since been discovered, including another off Sulawesi island in 1998.

(AP) -- The nation's top electronics retailer didn't pick Silicon Valley, India or another high-tech hub to build its hospital for personal computers. It chose the Kentucky countryside, known more for race horses and bourbon distilleries than geeks and microprocessors."
