The above two pictures show me holding a Samsung Galaxy S3 which has a 4.8″ display in my left hand and a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 which has a 4.0″ display in my right hand. I am holding both phones in a manner that allows me to touch the top opposite corner with my [...]
There have been ongoing news reports about the nuclear power plant problems in Japan following the earth-quake and tidal-wave. The Wikipedia page about the Fukushima I nuclear accidents seems to have the best current summary of the situation .
I think it’s worth noting that Potassium Iodide can be ingested to reduce the incidence of [...]
Three months ago I wrote about getting Carpal Tunnel Syndrome . A few weeks after that I visited the specialist again and had my wrist brace adjusted to make it a little less uncomfortable. The specialist also gave me some quick ultra-sound treatment and then said that if it didn’t get better in a month [...]
Eric Topol gave an interesting TED talk about wireless medical monitoring devices . The potential for helping diabetics and other people who need ongoing treatment is obvious as is the potential for helping pregnant women and other people who might suddenly need medical treatment at short notice.

Elaine Morgan gave an interesting TED talk about human evolution and the theory that our ancestors lived in the water . The aquatic ape theory [...]
Above is a picture of a moth that I found in a packet of shrink wrapped celery from Foodworks (a Melbourne chain of grocery stores).
I took several pictures from different angles, but I found that an almost direct photo captured it best, you can see the reflection of the flash covering part of [...]
I’ve just been reading about oil deterioration when deep frying . Apparently frying food can cause the production of Acrylamide  which causes cancer, is a neurotoxin, and does other bad things to your body. Deep frying in a vacuum  is a solution to this problem as the lower temperatures reduce the formation of [...]
Last night I had a Visual Migraine that was significantly worse than the previous ones. It started in the usual manner (flickering lights in my central vision and an inability to read text on a computer screen in a font that is normally quite readable) but then developed a new feature. Grey clouds appeared in [...]
