Genetically modified foods are the subject of conspiracy theories and uneducated fearmongering…despite study after study that has found the foods to be perfect okay to eat.Anti-GMO groups are still out there, and there advocating against modified foods despite the benefits they offer and their potential to help improve food security around the globe.The report didn t help things, and so now six years later, it s back with yet another.This week, the organization released a new report that in the years since its previous report, no differences have been found that implicate a higher risk to human health safety from these GE foods than from their non-GE counterparts.Rather than scaling back work related to genetically modified foods out of fear, the report underscores a very clear point: people need to get over it so governments can move on to more sensible perspectives and facilitate an increased number of research projects.Utilized properly, genetically modified foods can lead to crops better able to thrive in a specific environment, being less prone to local pests and environmental variations to produce larger, more abundant edibles.
So we went to the program s spring exhibition, to see what madness they dreamed up.Scanalogue works with 35mm and medium format film, and is set to hit Kickstarter later this summer.So far she s tested these role plays on 10 kids with autism spectrum disorders with positive results!The prompts were guided by SD cards which contained statistical models culled from literature, and which told the devices whether to format their output as a novel, poem, or screenplay.In Haunt you watch moments past and present unfold from the perspective of a girl who has recently died.The six-odd-minute film takes one of the major limitations of VR—that you re no longer inhabiting your body—and makes it its strength.
vozach1234Proud and happy moments in our lives become cherished memories, kept in relatively crisp condition in our noggins for the occasional uplifting retrieval.Collecting data from a series of nine experiments involving 2,109 participants, researchers suggest that our brains actively blur and junk memories of our own misdeeds to help avoid dissonance between our actions and moral values.They found that the memories of unethical deeds were less vivid than the memories in any other category.The participants again had trouble clearly recalling their own misconduct, but they recalled with equal clarity the ethical and unethical feats of others.In the third experiment, 70 participants played a coin-toss game where they could easily cheat to win money.In experiments five 257 participants and six 88 participants , subjects again read narratives with unethical actions in first-person.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO Meg Whitman is so serious about pushing HPE into the world of corporate venture investing, that she is personally involved with the program, reports Bloomberg's Brian Womack.HPE intends to invest $100 million in 2016, its second year of its program, which HPE calls "Pathfinder," Lak Ananth, the program's managing director told Womack.And although the investment group currently employs 10 people, and expects to be at 15 later this year, this project is very much Whitman's baby.Startups have to pitch to the billionaire CEO personally at quarterly "coffees with Meg" before HPE signs off on deals.She was, for instance, personally involved in HPE's investment in Mesosphere, a hot cloud startup that reportedly turned down a $150 million acquisition offer from Microsoft.Instead it stayed independent and raised another $73.5 million led by this HP ventures unit, raising about $122 million to date, with a reported valuation of over $1 billion .HPE's didn't just throw money at Mesosphere, it's also giving the startup access to the company's enormous sales force and partner network, she says.This gives Mesosphere many of the benefits of being acquired by a bigger company, while allowing it to stay on its own.Joining the clubIt was, apparently, Whitman's direct involvement that encouraged Mesosphere to go with HPE's funding, CEO Florian Leibert told Womack, who describes Whitman as "really responsive.Although she's had a storied career growing eBay, was a "strategic advisor" to VC Kleiner Perkins, and been on the boards of other startups like Zipcar, she's not known for her angel investing.She has no AngelList profile and Crunchbase only lists a single personal investment she's made, into startup factory Expa, founded by Uber and StumbleUpon cofounder Garrett Camp.Whitman isn't looking for HPE to become a big VC and make a killing on its investments, though she doesn't want to lose money.Instead, it's a way for HPE in general, and Whitman in particular, to keep tabs on the startup world, and get a stake in hot technologies without having to acquire every company outright, she says.NOW WATCH: How to see everything Google knows about youLoading video...
