Meet Humanity beyond Race, it’s Beautiful

For centuries, racial differences have defined the borders between tribes and classes, feeding discrimination and xenophoby. But with the arrival of the global village, interracial relationships are becoming norm rather than exception.

In a matter of years we’ll have mingled ourselves into one giant amalgamated mega-race. But what will we look like? National Geographic built its 125th anniversary issue around this very question, calling on writer Lise Funderburg and Martin Schoeller, a renowned photographer and portrait artist, to capture the lovely faces of our nation’s multiracial future. Meet the people beyond race.

Why Robots Need Personalities

What if we could give our robotic friends social skills and charisma?
In this short video, social roboticist Heather Knight explains why we shouldn’t just limit machines to automation.
Knight affirms working with robots equipped with personality could make us more social. “We could work together with machines to be capable of doing things that neither of us could do alone.”
Are robots not supposed to think or do they need personalities? Which side are you on?

We Are Weaker Than Our Ancestors

Researchers confirm that modern society technologies and comforts caused the decline of our overall strength.

Scientists Created “Alien-DNA”

The genetic material of all creatures on earth is saved in the biomolecule Deoxyribonucleic Acid, the DNA. It consists of four components: the bases Adenin (A), Thymin (T), Guanin (G) and Cytosin (C). These appears as pairs in the combinations of AT and GC. Now, a team of scientists at the Scripps Research Institute in California, led by chemical biologist Floyd Romesberg, extend the alphabet with two new created ‘foreign’ building-blocks, called X and Y

Technosphere Interference

Medical teams in Austria and Egypt published a study in which they report the effects of cell phone usage on men fertility.
Results show a potential correlation between increased mobile phone usage and erectile dysfunction.

“The number of global mobile phone subscriptions is estimated at five billion. Cell phones operate using a wide range of frequency bands (4002000 MHz) that emit radiofrequency electromagnetic waves. The link between cell phone usage and men’s health hazards was proven in a number of studies that focused on the male reproductive health.”

Does Technosphere stop humans from sexual replication?
