Op-Ed: NASA releases video of global CO2, and it’s an ugly sight

Sydney - Forget the hype, check out the fact. The patterns of CO2 circulation in the atmosphere, particularly in the Northern Hemisphere, are pretty repulsive looking things. China’s notorious smog is clearly visible, and the United States isn’t much better.

Op-Ed: Gigantic pattern of ancient quasars spans billions of light years

Sydney - A decidedly eerie pattern of consistent positioning of ancient quasars has been discovered. This is a vast pattern, billions of light years across. Either someone’s taking “join the dots” way too far, or a new cosmic structure's been found.

Op-Ed: Bacteria as memory storage – E. coli’s new gig

E. coli are tough bacteria. There are a lot of different strains, but this time they’re working for us. The new approach to managing medical and environmental data is to store it in bacterial genomes.

Op-Ed: 5 year old passes Microsoft Certification exam — Kids rule, again

Coventry - Ayan Qureshi, a 5 year old in the UK has left Microsoft flabbergasted but fascinated after passing their “difficult but enjoyable” Certified Professional exam. His father is an IT consultant.

Op-Ed: Jesus married with 2 sons, new gospel? Hoax, more likely

You’d look twice if you saw this on an online dating site: “Son of God, two kids, looking for caring lady broad minded about in-laws…” You’d also assume it was a hoax. That’s exactly what the latest “discovery” of a new gospel looks like.

Op-Ed: America’s most expensive home — $195 million and no class at all

The Palazzo Di Amore, “Palace of Love” is a modern Italian villa based on old Italian architecture based on something somewhat like a Roman villa. This is Beverly Hills — in all the wrong ways, at $195 million. This poor little rich shack needs help

Op-Ed: The GFC, Wall Street vermin and how corruption is the norm

Washington D.c. - You’ll know some of the story about the Great Financial Crisis. The shoddy subprime mortgages, the “too big to fail” clichés, etc. are now part of history. What you may not know is that Washington actively supported massive criminal fraud.

Op-Ed: Femme Fatale actress sued for refusing to do topless scene

Time Warner HBO’s “Femme Fatale” TV series is a tacky take on a magazine of the same name. This loser show just got tackier. Producers are complaining about Anne Greene’s refusal to comply with the “must show nipples” clause in her contract.

Op-Ed: Australia has lost one of her favourite sons, Gough Whitlam, 98

Sydney - Gough Whitlam was a maverick politician, ahead of his time and a true exponent of the core principles of the labour movement. He’s one of the few Australian Prime Ministers who truly revolutionized the nation.

Op-Ed: Putin ‘wanted to split Ukraine with Poland’

Warsaw - In what can only be described as a major added splash in the murky puddle of Ukraine/Russian relations, it’s been revealed by Polish sources that Vladimir Putin proposed splitting Ukrainian territory between Russia and Poland in 2008.

Op-Ed: Sex invented in Scottish lake? Well, where else?

Sydney - Two armoured fish called Microbrachius dicki are believed to be the pioneers of sex, 385 million years ago. The fish used a side-on position to mate, breaking with a long tradition of somewhat impersonal spawning.

Op-Ed: Hey, MIT — What about success on Mars?

Sydney - The Massachusetts Institute of Technology study of the Mars One project has come up with a few very interesting, but debatable figures and options. There's a bit more to this issue than the usual obituary for human hopes, this time.

Op-Ed: Ancient kangaroos didn’t hop, they walked

Sydney - In a discovery which is both fascinating and very likely to create a lot more questions, researchers have discovered that ancient kangaroos did walk on two legs, but couldn’t hop. This is a very tricky bit of science.

Op-Ed: ‘Ban Putin’ G20 uproar in Australia, Pravda sneers

Sydney - The attendance of Russian Federation president Vladimir Putin at the G20 meeting in Brisbane isn’t popular with many sections of the Australian public. The Australian government isn’t too happy, either.

Op-Ed: Porn at work — The industry that steals your brain?

Sydney - Watching porn at work is global. Three percent of Americans admit watching porn at work, according to some figures. Nielsen says 29 percent watch it at least every week. The numbers never add up, but the problem is everywhere.

Op-Ed: Bigger brains not better – New study shows flaws in size theory

Sydney - New studies have shown that rats and mice, which have very different brain sizes, have similar intelligence. A new study suggests that the assumption of brain size as a measure of intelligence was an intuitive, but wrong, assumption.

Op-Ed: Sense of smell predicts longevity? Yes, at least for some

Sydney - New research suggests the ability to smell five particular smells does have a relationship with longevity. In a study of 3005 people, 39 percent of those who failed died. Those with better senses of smell did much better.

Op-Ed: Women in tech - What women don’t want, defined

Sydney - Neo feminism is a lot less rhetorical and more focused than old feminism. The general approach is “To hell with you, if you don’t do it, I’ll do it myself”. It's now a question of what women don't want, as much as what they do.

Op-Ed: Behind Windows 10 – A return to good user functionality, or what?

Sydney - After the general loathing of Windows 8, Microsoft has moved with unseemly haste to crank up the new OS, formerly known as Windows 9, now to be called Windows 10. The question is whether real users will like it, not whether its PR sways the public.

Op-Ed: Mystery on Titan — Why did a feature in Titan’s sea disappear?

Sydney - Astronomers watching features on Saturn’s moon Titan were astonished to see a “land” feature simply disappear on photos from the Cassini spacecraft. This large feature, a peninsula on the Saturnian hydrocarbon “sea,” seems to have disappeared.
