Corning: The Glass Age, parts 1 and 2

No comments:
Corning is presenting a web site entitled The Glass Age showcasing the science and technology of glass. There's a lot of interesting content here, although it somewhat resembles an advertisement as well, since Corning's products are (as expected) featured throughout the presentations.

Two fascinating video clips from this site feature Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman presenting some modern applications of glass: optical fibers, flexible "willow" glass and super-strong "gorilla" glass.

Algemeiner: Don't Want to Come to the Middle East? Stay in Europe and Kill Jews, IS Tells Aspiring Jihadis

Don't Want to Come to the Middle East? Stay in Europe and Kill Jews, IS Tells Aspiring Jihadis

Recruiters in Europe for the Islamic State (IS) organization are proposing an alternative form of service for those jihadis unwilling to venture to the Middle East, where the terrorist group has carried out gruesome massacres of Christians, Yezidis, and other minorities: stay at home and kill Jews.

Can we finally put to rest the insane myth that these Jihadi groups are only interested in Israel giving up land? It's always been a desire to murder Jews, Christians, Hindus, and everybody else, including non-radical Muslims (and even radicals who belong to other organizations.)
