NASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This WeekendHubble Captures Saturn’s ‘Phonograph Record’ Ring System What did you do to celebrate your last birthday? Did you go to eat somewhere? Did you spend time with friends? Did you go to space? As of Monday the first woman to go to space was celebrating her 80th birthday, which was also part of a very important mission to the outer reaches of space. Talk about a ridiculously important birthday event.Valentina Tereshkova, pictured above, was tasked with an integral mission for the Soviet Union at the time: getting into space. According to Soviet officials in 1963, the mission was successful, but a few years ago Tereshkova came forward with information about a potential technical issue that could have left her up in space all alone with no way to get back home.During a broadcast on Channel 1, Tereshkova explained the situation: “When the spacecraft reached the orbit, I realized that I wouldn’t be able to return to Earth because the ship was programmed to move to a higher orbit instead of deorbiting. I reported the situation to the mission control, they told me how to change the parameters, and everything went on without trouble.”It’s good that it did, else the first woman in space might have been privy to the first disaster involving a woman in space. Previously before going up into the sky, Tereshkova liked parachute jumps and worked in a textile factory. She told her relatives she was going to attend a parachute competition when in reality she was a part of the Soviet space program, which involved a three-day mission that launched her into instant stardom in her country.Vladimir Putin, Russian president, as he hosted Tereshkova at the Kremlin while praising her for being a role model and “symbol of service” to Russia. While the first woman in space may be living a much more terrestrial live right now as a member of the Russian parliament, her head will always be in the stars, it seems. Because how awesome would it be to be the first woman in space? Stay on target
Municipal leaders from across the state came to a preliminary agreement with partners in the Alaska LNG Project on local payouts last week.Download AudioThe proposed pipeline route for the Alaska LNG Project, a consortium of oil companies (Image courtesy of the Alaska LNG Project).The project will make $800 million available to communities facing impacts from the 800-mile long LNG pipeline, with billions more slated for future tax payments. But how much each community will be entitled to is still up in the air.For more than a year, a group called the Municipal Advisory Gas Project Review Board has been working to get to these numbers; $800 million on the front end of the AK LNG Project to pay for things like road expansions and other expensive upgrades, and 16.5 billion dollars for taxes over the life of the project. Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Mike Navarre is one of many city and borough mayors on the Review Board.“I think they’re fair numbers,” Navarre said. “A lot of it still depends on how it will be allocated among the different communities and the state.”We could use up this space simply entertaining all the options the legislature has for allocating that money, but that still wouldn’t get us very far. Governor Bill Walker has proposed the state take a 25 percent share of the project, buying out TransCanada. So who pays for what under that scenario?“If the state is a part owner of the project, is that portion of it exempted from taxation and if so, does that reduce those numbers by 25 percent? And if so, does that come out of the state’s share, the municipalities’ share or both?”“And when there’s a lot of money on the table and no one else has much money because of declining oil prices, there will be lively debate over who gets how much of that pot of money,” said Larry Persily, special assistant to the mayor on oil and gas.He used to work for the federal government keeping tabs on big oil and gas projects in the state and now he’s doing the same thing for the Kenai Peninsula Borough. He says all of these discussions, taking place years before a decision will even be made about whether or not to build an in-state gasline, all stem from arguments of the past.“This is intended to avoid the fights that have gone all the way to the state Supreme Court, multiple times, over what is the value of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and everything attached to it,” Persily said.And that’s why we’ve seen an opening bid, so to speak, of $16.5 billion for property taxes. Actually, that’s a payment in lieu of taxes, or a PILT. If you took all of the pipe and the buildings and the equipment and the land needed to build and maintain an 800 mile natural gas pipeline and taxed it like regular property, the project would simply be too expensive. So $16.5 billion is what the negotiating parties have agreed to as an alternative.“So there will be a formula, based on production, that will be paid and distributed between the municipalities, such as the Kenai Peninsula Borough where the (LNG) plant is going to be located and the North Slope Borough, Fairbanks, Mat-Su Borough, Denali Borough and the state and that will continue for the life of the project,” Persily said. “What hasn’t been decided is…how it is going to be shared between the state and the boroughs.”There is clearly a lot more negotiation that will take place before we really know how much money communities can expect out of the project, and all of this is before the project sponsors have finished their report on the socio-economic costs. That means schools, hospitals, police and other services that might be needed during construction. That could also mean even more money in local coffers. If the project gets the greenlight. That decision isn’t expected until sometime in 2018.
Residents are seen protecting themselves by the rain in the aftermath of the passage of the cyclone Idai in Beira, Mozambique, on March 17, 2019ADRIEN BARBIER/AFP/Getty Images)Cyclone Idai caused heavy rainfall and strong winds in the region, which in turn brought down buildings, trees and power lines. Roads and other forms of communication have been cut off and businesses too have reportedly been shut. Environment minister Celso Correia said that the nation was now focused on saving and rebuilding lives. “I think this is the biggest natural disaster Mozambique has ever faced. Everything is destroyed,” the Guardian quoted Correia as saying. “Our priority now is to save human lives.” Residents and shopkeeper are seen amid the destruction provoked by the passage of the cyclone Idai in Beira, Mozambique, on March 17, 2019ADRIEN BARBIER/AFP/Getty ImagesThe International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) described the situation as “terrible” and spokesperson Jamie LeSueur said that entire villages have been wiped out.

Communication lines have been completely cut and roads have been destroyed. Some affected communities are not accessible,” LeSueur said in a statement. “Beira has been severely battered. But we are also hearing that the situation outside the city could be even worse. Yesterday, a large dam burst and cut off the last road to the city.”Making things worse, survivors do not have access to medical facilities. “Medical activities in Beira hospital, in local health centers, and throughout the community have ceased completely,” the agency added.Idai affects Zimbabwe and Malawi Timber company workers stand stranded on a damaged road on March 18, 2019, at Charter Estate, Chimanimani, eastern Zimbabwe, after the area was hit by the cyclone Idai.ZINYANGE AUNTONY/AFP/Getty ImagesAfter battering Mozambique, Cyclone Idai moved through Zimbabwe and parts of Malawi as a tropical storm. While 56 have been reported dead in Malawi, Zimbabwe’s Ministry of Information tweeted on Monday, March 18, that 98 people had been confirmed death.Hundreds of residents in Zimbabwe are also said to be missing and President Emmerson Mnangagwa has declared a state of emergency in several regions. “This is a real humanitarian disaster. More than 100,000 people are in danger,” he said. The president also added that bodies could be seen floating at several places and the situation was so bad that survivors had nowhere to go and were taking shelter in trees while they waited for help. Mozambique is witnessing one of the worst natural disasters in its history with cyclone Idai leaving a trail of destruction in the southeast African nation. Over 1,000 people are feared dead after the cyclone slammed into the country last week, with the city of Beira facing Idai’s full wrath. A destroyed car is seen amid the destruction provoked by the passage of the cyclone Idai in Beira, Mozambique, on March 17, 2019ADRIEN BARBIER/AFP/Getty ImagesThe storm made landfall near the port city of Beira on Thursday, March 14, as a high end Category 2 storm with winds of up to 177 kilometre per hour. However, the aid teams are said to have reached the city only on Sunday, March 17, by which time “90 percent of the region” had been washed away. While the recorded death toll currently stands at about 84, Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi said in a nationwide address that the toll could hit 1,000 soon.”For the moment we have registered 84 deaths officially, but when we flew over the area… this morning to understand what’s going on, everything indicates that we could register more than 1,000 deaths,” the Agency France-Presse quoted Nyusi as saying.

But, last week, it in series of three days, launched iPad Air (3rd gen), iPad mini (5th gen), upgraded iMac series, AirPods (2nd gen), new Watch band spring collection along with iPhone cases, hinting that the company didn’t want the hardware products to consume too much time on the stage and make the invitees lose patience before the final announcement. Personally, I imagined, Tim Cook, taking the stage after the hardware announcement and say the words ‘One more thing…’ But, as we know, it won’t be happening that way, at least in the upcoming event. Apple’s new tvOS 12 comes with features for Apple TV 4K and Apple TV (4th gen) to make it even easier for customers to access the shows and movies across all Apple devicesApple India Press KitHowever, there is a lot of significance for Apple and this probably in the long term may become a cash cow for the company, like the current iPhone, which by the way is losing interest from customers from the past quarter. More and more people are restraining to go for new iPhone after two years, instead of waiting for one more year to get one.It is widely reported Apple will foray into the multimedia streaming service, which will take on giants such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hulu, among others.Apple is said to be spending close to $2 billion dollars to produce its own shows and the interesting thing about the deals with show producers is that all content to show on Apple service will be family oriented and there will no adult content.Apple has reportedly signed several big Hollywood celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg and also Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston are already working on ‘The Morning Show’ TV series.

One magical day back in 2008, developer Will Brierly created what is quite literally the best video game about drinking soda ever made: Soda Drinker Pro. For the better part of a decade, Brierly’s soda-drinking simulator bridged the nearly impossible-to-bridge massive chasm between gamers and soda enthusiasts. Thanks to SDP, you could finally enjoy a cool, refreshing soda in such exotic locales as a sunny beach, outer space, or inside someone’s mouth — without ever having to leave the comfort and safety of your very own desk chair. Now, in one of the best and most obvious marketing tie-ins in all of video game (and probably marketing) history, Soda Drinker Pro will release real-life sodas for all to drink like pros.Throughout the game, you can find bonus sodas lying around, waiting to supply the drinker with soothing throat refreshment. So, it’s only right that the real-life soda product is called Bonus Soda — and thankfully, you don’t have to search your crudely drawn environment to obtain some.SDP has teamed up with Pure Sodaworks to create and entirely new flavor of beverage, and considering the company sells unique flavors like Apple Pie and Strawberry Jalapeño, the partnership seems like a good choice. The brand new flavor that, as the SDP team puts it, “has never existed before,” has not yet been fully described, but is made with all natural ingredients, is gluten-free, and doesn’t have artificial coloring or preservatives.As a bonus to the Bonus Soda, the label (seen below) has been designed by the artist who composed the art for the very pretty Elegy for a Dead World.Bonus Soda is being demoed at PAX East this weekend, and will be available in stores soon after the convention is over. For updates, check out the Bonus Soda website; it’s bare right now, but promises the main site will be up soon. You can drop your name on a list to receive updates for when you can place an order for the previously nonexistent soda. Until then, keep drinking soda — virtual or otherwise, on a beach or in someone else’s mouth, but always singularly like a professional.
© 2013 Phys.org Citation: Crowd sourcing project to allow 3D scan-to-print web app (2013, August 5) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-08-crowd-sourcing-3d-scan-to-print-web.html Explore further Technology to allow for printing three dimensional objects is evolving rapidly, making it difficult for some to keep up. It’s also still relatively expensive. Currently, people who wish to print such an object have but two choices—buy (or borrow) a 3D printer or contract out with a company that prints 3D objects for a price. Both options require software and a depth camera. Now it appears a third option is about to make its debut—one that might make the entire process both cheaper and far easier to carry out. BotObjects announces first full color 3D printer— ProDesk3D Volumental, a company that is currently accepting image data captured via depth camera, printing 3D models and shipping them back, is now looking to create a web based app to replace the software portion of the process. That would mean anyone with a depth camera (which includes Kinect devices) could scan an object, have it rendered onscreen and then sent to a 3D printer of their choice. If successful, a new way to print 3D objects could become as common as printing text and images on a piece of paper. The company has set up a Kickstarter project with a goal of reaching $20,000 to finish writing the web app code—pledges so far are just over half that amount.As depth cameras (those with two or more lenses) become more common, demand for 3D printing grows, though currently printers able to do so are still quite expensive. If, however, consumers that have already purchased a Kinect device for gaming can use their existing equipment along with what is essentially free software to capture the object data, then half the process of producing 3D models is covered. An added advantage to such a system would be a reduction in difficulty in capturing the 3D image. Users could conceivable load the browser scanner, spin slowly in place in front of their Kinect device, place an order with Volumental (or have the data sent to another site, such as the local 3D printer at work) and wait for the full color model to arrive at their home. Objects captured would be limited only by the range of the camera—users could conceivably scan every object in their living room, including furniture and have it printed in a size limited only by the ability of the printer to which it is sent. As printer technology improves, so too will the range of materials that can be used as “ink” opening up the door to some pretty amazing possibilities. This document is subject to copyright.

The evening started with the short introduction by Ashok Vajpayee, followed by short word on Kraków and literature by Prof Piotr Klodkowski.Piaskowski took the audience through a presentation on Krakow City of literature. Urvashi Butalia made contemporary remarks on the literature of both the cities. Michal Rusinek gave an insight into the Krakow literature. The event was concluded with an interactive discussion with the audience.After a three-year wait, Kraków become the UNESCO City of Literature, 21 October 2013. Kraków is the seventh city to be granted this honour, following Edinburgh, Melbourne, Iowa City, Dublin, Reykjavík and Norwich. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Kraków receiving the title of UNESCO City of Literature bears testament to the cultural heritage of our ancient city and the wealth of its artistic life today.Kraków has long been an academic and intellectual centre of Europe and a cradle of language and literature; it was the first Polish city to hold scriptoriums, libraries and printing houses, and it is the birthplace of scores of literary masterpieces. It was also home to the authors of Polish modernism – Stanislaw Wyspianski, Stanislaw Przybyszewski and Józef Mehoffer – and more contemporary artists including Karol Wojtyla, Tadeusz Kantor, Stanislaw Lem, Slawomir Mrozek and Andrzej Wajda. It was here that Czeslaw Milosz (awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1980) returned after many years in exile, and it was the home of Wislawa Szymborska (Nobel Prize in 1996) throughout her long life until her passing in 2012.
Migrate Windows users with User Profile Wizard by Martin Brinkmann on January 12, 2019 in Software – 6 commentsUser Profile Wizard is a software for Microsoft Windows devices to migrate user accounts from one machine to another.The program is offered as a free for personal-use version, and the paid professional edition and Enterprise edition.The free edition supports the migration of user profiles, deleting or disabling local accounts, network migration, joining computers to all Windows domains, or joining a workgroup.Professional and Enterprise editions support additional features; the professional version options to save migration configurations, adding computers to Active Directory Containers, or options to rename the profile folder or computer.The Enterprise edition supports migration of all profiles in one operations, support for VPN connections, full automation with custom script support, and the renaming or copying of profiles.In this review, I’ll be looking at the free version of User Profile Wizard.Migrate Windows usersUser Profile Wizard is compatible with all versions of Windows starting with Windows XP. The program needs to be installed on the target machine before it can be used.The main feature of the free version is to migrate a user profile to another account to keep data and preferences.It displays the list of user profiles on start; each user profile is listed with its name and profile path. Options to show unassigned user profiles, and to disable or delete the selected account are provided. Unassigned profiles are profiles created by Windows when there are issues with existing profiles.Note: The data is migrated to existing accounts only. If you want to start with a new profile, you need to create it first on the device to select it later.You are asked to select an account name for the migration and need to select a domain or the local computer name. The program does not list existing account names on the system; you need to look them up elsewhere to pick the right account for the migrationYou may set the new profile as the default logon on the system.The migration starts directly afterward. User Profile Wizard displays the progress in a log in the program interface; it may take some time to migrate Registry keys, user data, and other data to the selected profile.Attention: the program initiates a restart of the system after successful migration of a user profile. I did not find an option to prevent the restart from happening (after ten seconds). Make sure that you closed programs and saved data before you end the application.Closing wordsUser Profile Wizard is a useful administrative Windows tool to migrate one user profile to another. Home users may use it to migrate data from an old profile to a new one among other things.Now You: How would you migrate a user profile?Summary12345 Author Rating4 based on 8 votes Software Name User Profile WizardOperating System WindowsSoftware Category AdministrationLanding Page https://www.forensit.com/domain-migration.html Advertisement
At most of these hospitals, robots have been in service for over a decade—and conditions haven’t improved. Though workers and executives sensed deeper problems, they didn’t advocate strongly enough to make changes. On paper, things seemed to be working: the focal task had been “improved” via cutting-edge technology, patient results looked fine and the hospital workers still had jobs (albeit, duller ones.)Across my studies, the pattern is similar. The robot gets installed, handling a focused set of dirty, dangerous, or boring tasks. Efforts to redesign the work slow to a trickle: once results are the same or slightly better than before the redesign stops there. This means organizations miss innovative work designs and instead settle on ones that make the work worse: less challenging with fewer opportunities to learn and relate to other people in the process.There’s good evidence that this dynamic is hard to dodge; try this 1951 study of coal mining on for size. Without proof that the new robotic install could be better, no one is motivated enough to try out alternative approaches. As we automate work like trucking, people transport, or package delivery—things that touches hundreds of thousands or even millions of people—these effects will get worse.From the front lines, it seems clear that organizations that take robots as an opportunity to learn will come out ahead. Surgery’s a good example: putting a robot in the operating room left many workers in the lurch, but it also revealed how hospitals might improve robotic surgical work. Nurses and surgical technicians might now help across simultaneous procedures, for example, or could even formally train surgical residents who are starved for attention and practice.Getting these clues takes careful, boots-on-the-ground attention to the entire work system as it changes. Using them to guide a broader work redesign can cost more than a typical robotic install—and not all roboticization is worth equal attention. But not doing this work guarantees an outcome we can’t afford: a future of degrading work.WIRED Opinion publishes pieces written by outside contributors and represents a wide range of viewpoints.

They point to jobs like shutting down a leaky nuclear reactor, cleaning sewers , or inspecting electronic components to really drive the point home. Robots don’t get offended, they are cheap to repair when they get “hurt,” and they don’t get bored. It’s hard to disagree: What could possibly be wrong about automating jobs that are disgusting, mangle people, or make them act like robots?The problem is that installing robots often makes the jobs around them worse. Use a robot for aerial reconnaissance, and remote pilots end up bored. Use a robot for surgery, and surgical trainees end up watching, not learning. Use a robot to transport materials, and workers that handle those materials can no longer interact with and learn from their customers. Use a robot to farm, and farmers end up barred from repairing their own tractors.I know this firsthand: For most of the last seven years, I have been studying these dynamics in the field. I spent over two years looking at robotic surgery in top-tier hospitals around the US, and at every single one of them, most nurses and surgical assistants were bored out of their skulls.In an open procedure—doing surgery with scalpels, retractors, sponges, and large incisions—nurses and scrubs are part of the action, with a regular and dynamic flow of critical work to do. They can learn a lot about surgery, trauma, anatomy, and organizational operations. It’s dirty, dangerous, and interesting work. People who study collaborative work agree: Often, dirt, danger and drudgery mean that you’ve got your hands on a satisfying job—it challenges you, you’re doing something meaningful for others, and you get respect.For many support workers, robotic surgery is much less satisfying than open surgery. There’s a huge amount of solitary setup work to allow the robot to work, then there’s a big sprint to get the robot draped and docked to the patient. And then…everyone watches the procedure on TV. While the surgeon is operating via an immersive 3-D control console, the scrub folds his arms and waits. The nurse sits in the corner at a PC entering data, or sometimes checking email or Facebook. There’s not a lot to do, but you always have to be ready. Compared to open surgery, it’s clean, safe, and dull work.

Lendgren said ten activists were arrested, after which the situation calmed down.Both the anti-Islam meeting and leftist protest continued peacefully and were scheduled to end at 1600 local (1400GMT).Nationalist groups such as the English Defence League were instrumental in organizing the anti-Islam event, which was described on the anti-Islam European Freedom Initiative’s website as the “first worldwide counter-jihad action.”In the counter protest, local activists called for tolerance and warned of a rise in fascism. They referred to the nationalist groups as “Breivik’s foot-soldiers” _ a reference to Norwegian ultra-nationalist Anders Breivik who killed 77 people in Norway last year.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

A 55-year-old heritage train once used on regional rail lines in NSW made its longest-ever mainline journey on Tuesday 15 November 2016, when it carried 90 rail and sail passengers on a 800-kilometre trip from the Victorian town of Seymour to Sydney.Cruise travel specialist, Cruise Express, which ran the unique cruise tour, invited rail buffs and locals in towns from Seymour to Sydney to see the two-car, 620-class rail motor, stop or pass by and give the passengers from around Australia a welcoming wave.The record-breaking rail journey was part of a four-night tour that included a three-night cruise from Sydney to Melbourne aboard Golden Princess, a night in Melbourne, dinner on the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant and the return train trip to Sydney, initially aboard the historic Spirit of Progress from Melbourne to Seymour and then aboard the rail motor through to Sydney.Built in 1961 and operated by the Rail Motor Society and based in Paterson in the Hunter Valley, the rail motor set 621/721 has been preserved in its original Indian red colour scheme and is the only 620-class rail motor in active preservation service. The NSW Government built 18 620-class diesel sets from 1961 to 1971, with six sets remaining in active commuter service in the Hunter area until 2007. The sets although were used all over NSW till the early 1990s. Unlike modern trains, the rail motor’s windows can still be opened so passengers could enjoy fresh air, unencumbered views and wave to sightseers.The rail motor’s pairing with the famous Spirit of Progress on the cruise tour was another rail history first. The Seymour Railway Heritage Centre also assisted with the historic rail journey. This was the rail motor’s first-ever visit to Seymour. Aboard the rail motor from Seymour to Sydney, eight rail enthusiast volunteers, including two drivers from Junee, accompanied the 90 passengers, who lunched en route at the 138-year-old Junee Railway Station, with refreshments also brought aboard at Goulburn from local suppliers.Cruise Express Director Meg Hill said the heritage rail and sail tour had proved very popular with travellers, with another planned for April 2017, with the rail motor this time travelling from Sydney to Seymour.
ORGANISERS of an upcoming art exhibition that will tour the island are appealing for all professional artists to donate a signature piece of their work to help raise money for the biggest cancer patients’ charity.‘The space art for charity 2018’ aims to raise €40,000 for the Cyprus association of cancer patients and friends, Pasykaf, for the support services they offer to cancer patients and their families across the island.Building on last year’s success which raised €10,000 through both an art and photographic exhibition held in Paphos, organiser and curator Sarah Coyne told the Cyprus Mail that she is taking the exhibition on tour this year“We will open in Paphos at the Almyra Hotel on February 17 where it will stay for two weeks, to be followed by a week in Limassol and another in Nicosia,” she said.Coyne said that along with art work, sponsors are also urgently needed with each contribution being tax deductible for companies.The Paphos resident moved from the UK to the island ten years ago and operates an estate agency, a job she also did in the UK, where she also worked at an art gallery in London.Following her mother’s cancer diagnosis in the UK, Coyne said that she experienced first-hand what cancer patients and their families endure and decided to volunteer at Pasykaf’s cancer patients support group in Paphos.The aim of the exhibition is to let people buy some stunning works of art all from one exhibition and to raise money for Pasykaf.“This year we will exhibit works by 60 artists, up from last year’s 25,” she said. Exhibits will include paintings, mosaic work, sculptures and other mediums.Coyne has joined forces with a number of galleries and art professionals across Cyprus, who are currently working with her as advisors and helping to raise the profile of the venture.The 2018 exhibition in will incur no costs, with the money raised going to the charity, she said. Venues have been donated for free, artists are donating works, Tsangarides, Tsiakkas and Vassiliades wineries are offering wine for the exhibition openings and expert removal company, Peter Morton will transport the art works between venues for free.Artists who have so far signed up for the project include Andros Efstathiou, Maria Ignatiou, Keith Walker, Katja Tonja, Michael Kersey, Penelope Constantinou, Anna Roman and Anna Privaloff.For further information call 99 254491 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

in the 2011 spending bill signed into law last week cuts off funding for a host of scientific exchanges between the United States and China Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA) a fierce opponent of the Chinese government and chair of a key appropriations panel inserted two sentences into the legislation that prohibits any joint scientific activity between the two nations that involves NASA or is coordinated by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) White House officials say that they are still reviewing the language On the surface it appears to apply only to those two entities and the bill extends only for the rest of the 2011 fiscal year which ends on 30 September But that still cuts a wide swath And Wolf makes it clear that he would like to permanently shut down all collaborations between the two governments "We don’t want to give them the opportunity to take advantage of our technology and we have nothing to gain from dealing with them" says Wolf "And frankly it boils down to a moral issue Would you have a bilateral program with Stalin" The language in the spending bill says that no government funds can be used by NASA or OSTP "to develop design plan promulgate implement or execute a bilateral policy program order or contract of any kind to participate collaborate or coordinate bilaterally in any way with China or any Chinese-owned company" It also prevents any NASA facility from hosting "official Chinese visitors" Wolf says that he singled out NASA because China’s space program although nominally independent "is run by the People’s Liberation Army" But the inclusion of OSTP is meant to cast a much bigger net he adds "It addresses everything the entire bilateral relationship on science and technology with respect to NASA and everything that involves OSTP" he says "It’s the whole ball of wax" In January the two countries signed an extension of a 1979 agreement on science and technology cooperation that has spawned dozens of projects sponsored by several US agencies and their Chinese counterparts A fact sheet accompanying the 19 January event at the White House between presidential science advisor John Holdren and Chinese science minister Wan Gang cites cooperative research covering "fisheries earth and atmospheric sciences basic research in physics and chemistry energy agriculture civil industrial technology geology health and disaster relief" In November 2006 the National Science Foundation (NSF) opened an office in Beijing to foster such research collaborations for example and in November 2009 the two countries announced what may be the largest single joint activity: a $150-million Clean Energy Research Center with matching contributions from the US Department of Energy and China’s Ministry of Science and Technology and its National Energy Administration Wolf has long criticized China’s suppression of religious and minority leaders and political dissidents as well as its policies toward Tibet He’s also used his position as chairman of the House spending panel on Commerce Justice and Science-which funds NASA NSF the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as well as the Justice and Commerce departments-to berate federal agencies on their vulnerability to cyberterrorism Earlier this year for example NSF’s Inspector General described a recent 2010 attack on NSF computers that ironically affected grant applications to its Office of Cyber Infrastructure "China is spying against us and every US government agency has been hit by cyberattacks" says Wolf in explaining why he opposes any collaboration with the Chinese government "They are stealing technology from every major US company They have taken technology from NASA and they have hit the NSF computers You name the company and the Chinese are trying to get its secrets" Although Wolf says that ban is confined to activities funded by the Chinese government or government-owned companies he says that "maybe next year we’ll include NGOs [non-governmental organizations]" He adds that anyone who thinks the Chinese NGOs can operate independently of the government "is really nave" bringing together cell biologistscom Village Fire Chief David Foster told TIME a gospel singer and family friend 1994 nothing has changed Listen to the full Science
