With so many different types of performances on screen, so many iconic portrayals that exist up and down the spectrum of emotion, it's impossible to actually rank them. So we decided to look at them categorically: comedy next to drama, big next to small, classic next to method etc. Because sometimes the best way to study a topic is to find it's boundaries.

A Couple of Examples: GMOs One of the best examples of political influence over scientific publication comes from an episode involving Genetically Modified Maize. Monsanto published a study a few years ago which purported to demonstrate the effects of GMO maize on rats over a 90 day period. They reported no ill effects on the rodents from this diet. Given the fact that there are no long term studies examining the health risks associated with GMOs, independent researchers then decided to conduct the same study, with one difference: Their study lasted over a year rather than a mere three months. Researchers found instances of severe liver and kidney damage, as well as hormonal disturbances, alongside the development of large tumours and mortality among the treatment groups . The study was published in November of 2012, in the Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology, and then instantly retracted.

Some of us have looked at clear resin jewelry casting kits online and started to get ideas. Hackaday's own [Nava Whiteford] decided to take the plunge and share the results . After purchasing a reasonably economical clear resin jewelry casting kit from eBay, a simple trial run consisted of embedding a solar lantern into some of the clear resin to see how it turned out. The results were crude, but promising. A short video overview is embedded below. The big hangup was lack of a proper mold. [Nava]'s attempt to use a plastic bag and a cup as an expedient stand-in for a proper mold was not without its flaws, and the cup needed to be broken before the cured resin could be removed. Despite this, the results were good; the mixing needed careful measurement and the curing process was lengthy but the cured resin is as attractive as the advertisements promise.

Peter Ray Allison 15 min 40 sec ago Art On 1 January this year, 30 years after James Cauty and Bill Drummond decided to form a band, a video was uploaded to YouTube. Part music video and part documentary, this surreal film was about The KLF, the most famous collaboration between Cauty and Drummond. This was followed several weeks later by a photo, tweeted by K2 Plant Hire , of a poster in Hackney. Featuring the logo of publisher Faber and Faber, the poster pointed to the release of a novel entitled2023 – a trilogy by The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu”, another moniker under which Cauty and Drummond work. A number of other websites referencing The KLF have been appearing, cryptic posters have been spotted and new videos have been uploaded, all of which is reminiscent of the beginnings of an alternate-reality game (ARG) – a form of transmedia, internet-based storytelling, now ubiquitously tied to everything from TV show tie-ins to video-game ad campaigns, but something The KLF arguably kickstarted in the first place.

[Kerry Wong] had some extreme MOSFETs (IXTK90N25L2) and decided to create a high current electronic load. The result was a two-channel beast that can handle 50 A per channel . Together, they can sink 400 W and can handle a peak of 1 kW for brief periods. You can see a demo in the video below. An electronic load is essentially a load resistor you can connect to a source and the resistance is set by an input voltage. So if the load is set to 10 A and you connect it to a 12 V source, the MOSFET should look like a 1.2 ohm resistor. Keep in mind that's 120 wattsmore power than a common incandescent light bulb. So you are going to need to carry some heat away. The circuit is pretty simple. The FETs accept a voltage on their gates that sets them to look effectively like a resistor that varies with the voltage. A very small source resistor develops a voltage based on current (only 75 mV for a 50 A draw).

This language represents a crisis for Jewish communal life, because it's a racial appeal that young Jews would not tolerate in the U.S. Sanders was on a kibbutz 54 years ago; and no kibbutz has Palestinian members. Bar-Lev sounded very Jim Crow when he warned that if Palestinians decided to vote in East Jerusalem right now they pretty much boycott elections they could elect a Palestinian mayor of the city; because they so outnumber the Jews, and Jewish mayor Nir Barkat only got 115,000 votes. Big problem, huh? Young Jews would like to see speakers bearing witness to injustice. But not one Jewish speaker at any panel I attended used the word apartheid to describe Palestinian conditions. No, that dirty work was left to Ayman Odeh, the Palestinian politician. There was really nothing transcendent to believe in offered by the older speakers on the stage.

A deer that got itself stuck between two trees found a helping hand from a group of hunters. In November, a truckload of hunters were out driving on a hunting trip in Oregon when the car in front of them stopped suddenly. After spotting some commotion in the trees, the hunters discovered a doe, stuck between two trees. After multiple attempts, one of the men decided to grab a hatchet to make the job easier. The doe was less than pleased, but after several minutes the hunters managed to free the deer, and it ran off into the wilderness. Read more...

After 17 years, Hugh Jackman will take his last bow as Wolverine (for now, anyway) along with Sir Patrick Stewart as the benevolent telepath Professor X in Logan . It's been a long road for the two actors and the stars they've shared the screen with, from the core cast of the first three X-Men films to the First Class prequels and Wolverine standalone films. That's pretty emotional for an X-Men movie fan, so we decided to rank all the previous movies and to revel in the highs and lows of the series over almost two decades. SEE ALSO: Wolverine claws toward greatness in the R-rated Logan' This ranking includes every live-action X-Men movie, except for Deadpool , which we can probably agree was kind of its own thing, and Logan , which you'll have to see for yourself.

The intense pressure against SJP did not publicly manifest itself until February 25. “After receiving much feedback and after careful consideration, we have decided to cancel tomorrow’s event with Rania Khalek,” the UNC SJP chapter announced. “We do not endorse nor reject her views on the Syrian civil war as they remain relatively unclear, according to our members’ diverse opinions of Rania’s analyses.” “Although Rania was not going to speak about Syria, we understand the Syrian conflict is a contentious issue and the invitation was met with a lot of anger. We appreciate the concerns of those wh o have reached out to us, especially our Syrian supporters, and believe her invitation would mistakenly imply SJP to hold such views. SJP supports liberation movements for all oppressed people and recognizes their right to self-determination,” the chapter added.

An incredible amount of banana fiber waste is left on the ground to biodegrade. With this in mind, New England native Matt Simpson, the founder of Green Banana Paper, decided to take advantage of this abundant trash and turn it into a newfound treasure. The end result is a strong and water-resistant wallet boasting designs inspired by Micronesia's people, coconut palms, and ocean life. “Green Banana Paper wallets are not only ecofriendly; they are helping to provide a living wage to Kosraean families,” explains the company . “Matt hopes to continue to scale up production, and get even more people on the island involved in this truly community-oriented business.” The company's Kickstarter seeks to raise enough funds that they can employ more people, as well as refine the quality of their products. As an incentive, anyone supporting the project will receive their own banana fiber wallet, which can be shipped around the world.

While declining to be drawn on specifics, while talking about the potential for a small SUV DS UK boss Arnaud Leclerc said: "What's clear is that we need to find a way to keep DS 3 customers with the brand and offer them something as they move up. It's also true that the segment for small SUVs is growing. But nothing is decided." DS vice president of marketing Arnaud Ribault added: "It's true that to develop we will need a family of SUVs and a family of saloons. But where that takes us in terms of sizes and the order of our launches is less clear. The DS 7 represents a start; tradition may dictate we follow it with one smaller and one larger SUV - why not? - but we haven't announced this." The DS 7 SUV will be built and sold in China, alongside the smaller China-only DS6 model which has been sold there since 2014. The latter car is based on older PSA Group technology and as such cannot be sold in other markets as it doesn't meet safety requirements.
