Fujitsu Is Growing Radiation-Free Lettuce In Japan's Fukushima Prefecture
I was thinking that the only way they could do this would be mass spec processing to remove all the radioactive elements (like carbon 14) from the soil and air before supplying this to the plants, They would be the most expensive plants ever harvested but in theory possible.
Then I noticed the plants were being grown in a building that is "totally free of chemicals" must be virtual food or uneducated people writing the article.

Death Wish Meets GPS: iPhone Theft Victims Confronting Perps
I think that is the problem. they need to get a real warrant. If they just show up and demand the phone and cuff the jerk, A half way awake person will refuse the search and then destroy the phone. They need probable cause to narrow it down to a specific apartment and then go to a judge and then look like idiots if the they don't find 10 out of 10 of the phones they look for.
Also it does not earn any revenue for the city like traffic fines do

Most Drivers Would Hand Keys Over To Computer If It Meant Lower Insurance Rates
What I am most worried about is that it would look at the road with 1/2 an inch of snow on it and decide that driving is not safe today. Or worse, we are driving in winter weather and it pulls off to the shoulder and parks because the snow is too thick.
Yes, many people can not drive in winter conditions, but I don't want to wait on the side of the road for two days for the road surface to clear

Ask Slashdot: Mitigating DoS Attacks On Home Network?
I am not sure about DSL networks but there is another possibility I have seen on other types of networks. Is it possible there is a broken/infected computer/hardware on the same subnet at the ISP?
The user changes the mac address and gets a new DHCP assignment from the ISP. which changes the IP address each time but is in the same subnet because it is in the same local geographical area . Whenever the router wakes up it finds out that everything on the subnet is getting slammed. The ISP should be able to figure this out.
Wireshark also should help but I would be tempted to do a live boot from CD to a machine that is only connected to the DSL modem then run it from there. Get everything else know off the system.
lots of DSL modems now have wireless access built in. if that is being abused by a neighbor that could also be the problem. Check that out and clamp it down if there is wireless there.
it could also just be a bad modem,

Technologies Like Google's Self-Driving Car: Destroying Jobs?
Since the Luddites were first in vogue the number of hours has gone down, the retirement age began to mean something, and we could afford social welfare programs. Employment back then was miserable.
If you lost your job and did not get work again decades ago it was because you were not willing to do some types of work.
Now we have all this Ayn Rand crap being spouted all over the place and anyone who wants to see continued progress is being labeled a communist.
Most of the jobs that practically anyone could do now do not provide a living wage. You are expected to work 2+ jobs if your skills are not unique.
People who are older than 50 are particularly being damaged by this. Extending Social Security to older and older ages can not continue. It is causing many more valid disability claims.
Listen to the Tea Party people carefully. They want to return to a feudal society.
The problem will eventually solve itself with protests, strikes and perhaps violence. I hope it does not go that far, but I don't see much hope in the short term.
