more questions and Clintons want him out

more questions and Clintons want him out

That was true when he was a member of Congress, where he sometimes spoke from the House floor in a verbal conflagration on the order of Sherman blazing through Atlanta. It was true when he entered the race for New York mayor two years after resigning from Congress in disgrace the titters of disbelief still audible in the press gallery. And it remains true today, when he has pointedly not listened to his former leader in the House, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who captured the feeling of many Americans in telling Mr. Weiner to get a clue and drop out of the mayoral race.

But at this point, is sheer force of will enough to get him to Election Day on Nov. 5?

True, what we learned Tuesday is undeniably awful. It turns out that a year after the married congressman was forced to resign from his post in Washington because he was trading raunchy and racy online posts with single women and then lying about it, he was still doing it.

But in a way, that makes his run for mayor this year all the more important. While its possible he could have a third act at some distant future, the new revelations heaped on the previous revelations mean he either wins this race or hes taking a long siesta from politics. Thats something he clearly doesnt want to contemplate.

Moreover, he and his wife, Huma Abedin, seemed prepared for all this. Never mind that he called himself Carlos Danger and carried on explicitly sexual conversations with a 20something named Sydney Leathers last year, to them its old news, and regardless of this baggage, they apparently think he is a politician who can help New York. They seem happy to let the voters decide one way or the other.

And while future polls could get worse, hes hardly out of the picture still in second place with 19 percent of the vote compared with 25 percent for frontrunner Christine Quinn. Hes also go plenty of money for the time being. In fact, Weiner has $4.8 million, second only to Ms. Quinns $6 million, according to a report by the New York Daily News published a week before the new scandal surfaced.

So its possible that, for Weiner, things are playing out largely as he expected in a worstcase scenario. For someone who had the pluck to run for mayor of Americas biggest apple two years after being paraded in public in the Internet ages answer to tar and feathers, a week of bad press might not seem a gamechanger.

No American Sniper for Spielberg

No American Sniper for Spielberg

The Oscarwinning filmmaker has apparently decided to pass on the film, along with his studio DreamWorks, which was due to coproduce it with Warner Bros.

There are rumours that Spielbergs vision didnt fit in with the allotted budget, according to Deadline.

Bradley Cooper remains committed to play Texas Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in the bigscreen adaptation of autobiography, American Sniper: The Autobiography Of The Most Lethal Sniper In US Military History, which the Oscarnominated actor bought the rights to.

The memoir tells the story of the expert marksman who was killed by a discharged war veteran suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder.

It comes after Spielberg pushed back the release date of Jurassic Park 4 a year later to 2015, and delayed the release of Robopocalypse indefinitely.

The 66yearold directed three films in the past two years The Adventures Of Tintin, War Horse and Lincoln and is attached as a producer on Transformers 4, The HundredFoot Journey and the next Tintin film, Prisoners Of The Sun.

Milwaukee teachers union asking School Board to negotiate new contracts

Milwaukee teachers union asking School Board to negotiate new contracts

Citing the decision of a Dane County judge who struck down portions of a state law prohibiting most collective bargaining for public employees, the Milwaukee Teachers Education Association is asking the School Board to negotiate new contracts with its members.

To press for action, the MTEA rallied supporters to wear red, make signs and attend the School Boards meeting en masse Thursday night.

The MTEA says a oneyear contract with teachers, education assistants, substitutes and accountants could help keep qualified teachers in the classroom and help solve the districts impending teacher shortage. It would also maintain the salary structure of pay based on earned degrees and years of teaching experience for teachers.

Milwaukees teachers have been shielded from the effects of Act 10, a state law enacted in 2011 that dramatically limits collective bargaining for most public workers and dictates higher employee contributions to benefits, because of a fouryear bargaining agreement that does not end until June 30.

Teachers agreed to benefit concessions in that contract.

In districts operating under Act 10, teachers no longer have collective bargaining agreements. Instead, wages, work rules and benefits are spelled out in employee handbooks largely determined by school boards. Thats why Judge Juan Colas decision is important to many unions they see it as allowing them to engage in bargaining.

But the decision comes in the early stages of the larger appeals process, and the three judges or the Wisconsin Supreme Court could later restore all elements of Act 10.

MPS spokesman Tony Tagliavia said the districts attorneys are reviewing MTEAs request.

School Board member Meagan Holman said in an interview Thursday that the board has not yet started discussing handbooks for teachers and that members might not take up that item until May.

The ASUS PX Pro and PX Deluxe

The ASUS P9X79 Pro and P9X79 Deluxe

Intel will be releasing the Intel X79 Express chipset next month and that means well start to see X79 motherboards with the new LGA 2011 socket hitting the market. ASUS today announced the companies Intel X79 Express motherbaord lineup and sent over a number of pictures for us to post up for our readers. ASUS will be launching four series of Intel X79 motherboards.

Mainstream P9X79 Series

ASUS claims their Intel X79 series of motherboards highlight bestinclass performance, stability, features and a user experience that is unmatched. This is something that we will certainly have to test and try out once Intel releases the processors for this platform. Lets take a look at the ASUS Intel X79 boards.

ASUS will be launching the ASUS P9X79 Pro and the P9X79 Deluxe as the entry level boards for the Intel X79 chipset. These boards feature the standard 3year warranty and are aimed at mainstream users that want an even combination of performance, enhanced flexibility and good system control. This series offers an update to ASUS award winning UEFI graphical user interface for system options and the nextgeneration Dual Intelligent Processors 3 architecture, featuring the latest DIGI+ Power and new Digi+ DRAM technology. ASUS exclusive Digi+ technology offers the industrys leading alldigital power control design that older analog solutions cannot match in performance, stability and control options. Some features that all ASUS X79 boards will share:

Users will benefit from ASUS SSD Caching, which uses solid state drive speeds to intelligently accelerate frequentlyaccessed tasks and applications. Offering speeds up to three times faster than mechanical hard drives in most applications, ASUS SSD Caching features an exclusive user interface and storage control options that boosts performance with one click.

Other user enhancements include ASUS USB BIOS Flashback that allows for quick and easy

BIOS flashing without the need for a video card, CPU or hard drive attached to the system. BT GO 3.0! with Bluetooth and WiFi onboard enables faster connectivity and convenience without extra adapters, making wireless devices instantly accessible with improved compatibility and versatility on select boards.

ASUS is using a black PCB on the P9X79 motherboard series, which is still the trendy look in 2011. Looking straight down at the P9X79 Deluxe you can see that the board has eight quadchannel DDR3 memory slots, which means that it supports up to 64GB of memory. This board also

features two PCIe x1 and four PCI x16 slots. We arent certain how many lanes each slot has, but we know the Intel X79 platform is capable of supporting 40 PCIe 2.0 bidirectional lanes off the CPU and 8 more PCIe 3.0 lanes that are not bidirectional off the chipset.

Notice that the board has BT GO 3.0! written on the PCB just below the primary PCIe slot. ASUS says that all of their ATX motherboards of this series

will have Bluetooth onboard as a standard feature. One of the reasons

for this is that ASUS has designed some new software called BT GO! that

will allow you to overclock your system with a smartphone or tablet PC.

The ASUS P9X79 has plenty of connectivity with as the board has a total of eight SATA ports. The two bottom white SATA III ports running off the Marvell 9128 controller and support ASUS SSD Caching. Intel did not enable Smart Response Technology SRT for SSD caching on this board, so ASUS implemented their own solution. ASUS made the software for this inhouse and this SSD caching solution doesnt require getting into the UEFI BIOS to setup. The four blue blue SATA II and the top two SATA III ports run natively off the Intel X79 chipset.

The I/O panel has four native USB 2.0 connectors and then six USB 3.0 connectors that run off an ASMedia controller. The P9X79 Deluxe also has Dual Gigabit LAN available on the board hanks to the Intel 82579V controller for one port an a Realtek 8111E controller on the other.

Looking close at the boards PCB you can see things like Dual Intelligent Processors III, Digi+ VRM, Digi+ DRAM, UEFI 2 BIOS interface, MemOK!, Fan Expert+, ASUS SSD Caching, USB 3.0 Boost, BT Go 3.0! and so on. ASUS isnt releasing the details on all of these features yet, but they are clearly shown on the board.

Team aims to make sugarcane

Team aims to make sugarcane

CHAMPAIGN, lll. Department of Energy, researchers will take the first steps toward engineering two new oilrich crops. They aim to boost the natural, oilproducing capabilities of sugarcane and sorghum, increase the crops photosynthetic power and in the case of sugarcane enhance the plant cold tolerance so that it can grow in more northerly climes.

New research aims to convert sugarrich crops like sorghum pictured and sugarcane into oilrich crops. Scientists will suppress flowering in sorghum except in crops used to produce seeds for propagation to divert more of its energy into oil production. Photo courtesy Institute for Genomic Biology

The initiative, led by researchers at the University of Illinois in collaboration with scientists at the University of Florida, the University of Nebraska and the Brookhaven National Laboratory, will make use of recent advances in plant biotechnology and computer modeling to produce highyielding, coldtolerant, photosynthetically efficient crops that can be used in the production of biodiesel and jet fuel.

already have all the genetic apparatus to make oils, said Illinois crop sciences and Institute for Genomic Biology professor Stephen Long, who leads the initiative. in their genomes.

Once they have matured, sugarcane and sorghum spend much of their energy making and storing sugars, he said.

are proposing to subvert that mechanism in the plant to, instead of making sugar, use the products of photosynthesis to make oils and deposit those in the stems.

These natural plant oils, known as triacylglycerols, can be converted into diesel and jet fuel by a chemical process known as hydrotreatment.

is somewhat problematic in that we don have any pipelines for distributing it around the country, Long said. we have to deal with the blendwall that is, most current cars cannot deal with more than 10 percent ethanol, setting a limit on the amount of gasoline we can replace at present.

Traditional oilproducing plants, such as soybeans, can produce enough oil per unit of land to make this approach cost effective in the longterm without subsidies, Long said. But sugarcane and sorghum, which are among the most productive plants in agriculture, could feasibly produce more than 10 times the amount of oil per acre of crops such as canola and soybean, Long said.

The new work will build on previous studies that have identified genes that enhance oil production in plants and genes that boost their photosynthetic efficiency.

Long and his colleagues also will make use of their knowledge of Miscanthus x giganteus, a perennial grass already used as a biofuels feedstock. at the U. of I. Miscanthus can grow up to 13 feet 3.9 meters tall and is closely related to sugarcane but is much more tolerant of cold weather. states.

Another project will look at engineering bacteria to produce diesel directly and, once the process is streamlined in the bacterium, transfer the critical genes to sugarcane and sorghum.

and sugarcane will grow on quite poor land, so this should be doable without competing with foodcrop production, Long said. amount of oil we can get per unit of land area really makes this economically very viable as well, so I think it has the potential to give significant energy security to the country.

Stretching Before a Workout Saps Strength

Stretching Before a Workout Saps Strength

Stretching before a workout saps strength.

Two studies published this spring add further evidence to the oncecontroversial idea that stretching before your workout won relieve muscle soreness and can even weaken performance. Researchers in Croatia reanalyzed over 100 strength and conditioning papers published between 1966 and 2010, and found that stretching reduces a muscle strength by almost 5.5 percent. People who held their stretches for more than 90 seconds lost the most strength, while those who held for under 45 seconds were impacted less. Adding to this, Stephen F. Austin State University researchers found that young, fit men who performed squats with barbells lifted 8.3 percent less weight if they stretched first. The bottom line? Instead of stretching before a workout, try warming the muscles with dynamic movements like leg swings, shoulder rolls, and arm circles.
