Dr Ayse Goker, from the school of computing at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, is planning to run a trial of the system in her lectures next year. The system, called AmbieSense, uses hi-tech chips in lecture rooms that are capable of beaming information to mobile phones nearby. If...

An Asteroid is supposedly on a 'Possible' collision course with earth but NASA reckon they have it covered. I actually saw this in the paper today and have just found the story at Yahoo... Read on scary stuff or what?NASA has outlined plans for dealing with an asteroid a quarter of a mile wide that astronomers believe is on a near-collision course with Earth. The agency says there is no need at present to dispatch a radio transponder to the asteroid, but adds that it will be keeping a close eye ...

World Art News at IrishArt.com£7 Million Rembrandt Fake? (2.11.2005, 01:21 UTC)
A £7 million masterpiece by Rembrandt could be a fake, an art expert has claimed. Self Portrait As A Young Man, dating from 1629, has hung in Liverpool's Walker Art Gallery for the past 50 years. But renowned Rembrandt art expert professor Ernst van de Wetering has claimed the artwork was probably painted by a pupil in his workshop and not by the Dutch master at all. He described the painting as "primitive" and said it shows "a fundamentally different pictorial approach from that of Rembra...

I have this impression, which I can't substantiate with empirical data (other than the empirical data that I have this impression), that every online marketing 'guru' says that surveys are a great marketing tool. The argument goes something like this: people love completing surveys; surveys are easy to whip up and there are tools online to make them easy to run; you get a lot of information which you can re-cycle as a report, an article etc; by publishing the results, say in a newsletter, y...

My addiction to DVDs is documented. I know, as I was the one who documented it. I have a mental list of films that I really want to own. Some of them are self-explanatory, as they are simply great cinema, others are more ecletic and are on my list for any number of reasons. A fond memory. A smell. An experience. It could be any one of those reasons or something completely different. Cyrano de Bergerac was on my list. I now own a copy which I picked up on Amazon.fr. I could probably have picked...

Twenty Major - still smoking in Dub ...This new transport thing (2.11.2005, 00:14 UTC)
So the government announced a massive investment in transport across the country yesterday. We're going to get a corridor, some more trams and a metro about 50 years after everyone else. All this will cost, at this moment in time, €34bn and the completion date is 10 years from now. It's all too little, too late as far as I'm concerned. If you had told me in 1965 that in 2005 we wouldn't be going around in space-ships, or at the the very least superpowerful hovercraft of some kind, I'd hav...

United IrelanderUI's Irishness Test (2.11.2005, 00:11 UTC)
Very soon, immigrants who apply for British citizenship will have to take a 'Britishness test' where they will be expected to demonstrate a broad knowledge of life in the UK. I came across these 10 sample questions on the BBC (hat-tip N.Irish Magyar ) and I actually got eight out of 10 right (don't mock!). I have to say, I think this is a great idea and it got me thinking - there should be an Irishness test. So, I've come up with one. Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you... United Ire...

Michael Collins and Arthur Griffith were drinking excessively throughout crucial Anglo-Irish Treaty negotiations in London in December 1921, according to recently-published memoirs of former Irish government minister and Nobel Peace prizewinner Sean MacBride. MacBride was a lowly courier at the crucial talks, which led to a British commitment to withdraw and the setting up of the Free State. Says McBride: "My colleagues did far too much drinking, everybody, Collins included. Ther...

Disillusioned LeftyGlobalisation & the Nation-State (2.11.2005, 00:02 UTC)
Anthony O'Halloran, writing in Saturday's Irish Times, argues that globalisation does not destroy the notion of citizenship. It's a stance contrary to what, up until the start of this year, I was most familiar with. Reading through John Pilger's The New Rulers of the World, Paul Kingsworth's One No, Many Yeses or Greg Palast's The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, I was convinced that corporations had too much power over our identity and the way in which we are governed. Neo-liberalism, in my eyes, ...
