A beam of white light is made up of all the colours in the spectrum. The range extends from red through to violet, with orange, yellow, green and blue in between. But there is one colour that is notable by its absence [...]. Pink (or magenta, to use its official name) simply isn’t there. But if pink isn’t in the light spectrum, how come we can see it?

A nanofactory is a proposed system in which nanomachines (resembling molecular assemblers, or industrial robot arms) would combine reactive molecules via mechanosynthesis to build larger atomically precise parts. These, in turn, would be assembled by positioning mechanisms of assorted sizes to build macroscopic (visible) but still atomically-precise products.National Nanotechnology Initiatives - Several Countries are in the Nanotech Race

Recent research in neuroscience suggests that learning to play music positively influences the brain. Scientists hope that ongoing studies will lead to:
- A greater understanding of how the brain can remodel itself.
- Fresh ways to use music to help boost learning.
- New ideas on how to use music to treat brain illness.
If bigger brain parts mean a bigger intellect, musicians may have a leg up on others. Brain imaging research shows that several brain areas are larger in adult musicians than in nonmusicians. [...]StumbleUpon » scarpaz's web site reviews and blog

Volgens een recente test van PC World zijn dit de beste anti-spyware programma's voor Vista:
PC Tools' Spyware Doctor 5.0 outperformed its Vista competitors. Grisoft's AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 and Webroot's Spy Sweeper 5.5 finished some distance behind. Neither Spybot Search & Destroy nor Windows Defender adequately protects against today's threats. And on Windows XP, Lavasoft Ad-Aware, in several performance areas, did not impress us.
