The U.S. government does not represent the interests of the majority of the country’s citizens, but is instead ruled by those of the rich and powerful, a new study from Princeton and Northwestern universities has concluded.

The report, “Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens” (PDF), used extensive policy data collected between 1981 and 2002 to empirically determine the state of the U.S. political system.

After sifting through nearly 1,800 U.S. policies enacted in that period and comparing them to the expressed preferences of average Americans (50th percentile of income), affluent Americans (90th percentile), and large special interests groups, researchers concluded that the U.S. is dominated by its economic elite.


On a clear day like this, you can almost see… something!

This computer model says it’s China’s fault. Other computer models say it’s global warming/climate change. Where’s that Watson computer from Jeopardy to host a battle of the computer models and sort this out?

China’s air pollution could be intensifying storms over the Pacific Ocean and altering weather patterns in North America, according to scientists in the US. A team from Texas, California and Washington state has found that pollution from Asia, much of it arising in China, is leading to more intense cyclones, increased precipitation and more warm air in the mid-Pacific moving towards the north pole.

According to the team’s findings, which were released on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, these changes could ultimately contribute to erratic weather in the US.

The U.S. National Security Agency knew for at least two years about a flaw in the way that many websites send sensitive information, now dubbed the Heartbleed bug, and regularly used it to gather critical intelligence…

Could it be an electric dust devil?

A Maine man who was trying to avoid being charged with marijuana possession may now be wishing he simply pleaded to police that the pot was his.

A research team, whose major investors include some of the biggest telecommunications companies in Japan, has announced that it has successfully deciphered the contents of human dreams with high precision by analyzing the human brain’s activity during sleep.
[...]
In order to achieve these results, the research group first placed the three men who participated in the experiment into a state of sleep. They were then woken up after several minutes and asked to recount the content of their dreams. During this time the researchers compared the brain activity patterns recorded during sleep with the men’s accounts. The experiment was conducted over 200 times.

Next, while awake, the participants were shown pictures from 20 different categories, including cars and animals, after which their brain activity was further analyzed. These results were then compared to the brain activity during sleep, where the researchers discovered that they could predict the contents from one part of a dream with an accuracy rate of over 70 percent.

The year, 20??. You walk into a store, past a brain scanner which sees you are interested in a new toaster. Personalized ads appear in your Google Eyeball. Then you go to the airport where a brain scanner checks your intentions…
