Is this the craziest mountain bike race in the world? 18.4.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Each year, 2,000 riders slip, slide and fall down Pic Blanc, in Alpe d'Huez, in search of 'enduro' biking glory. We have a ringside seat and meet some of the riders The air throbs with the sound of helicopters. Loudspeakers blare out indeterminate beats while hundreds of mountain bikers stand quivering with nervous excitement next to bikes so solid they look like they'd survive a nuclear explosion. The crisp morning sunlight glances off the Sarenne glacier and from where they stand, on the summit of the Pic Blanc, the competitors soak up an epic alpine view. Then an air raid siren blasts out the 10-second countdown, ramping up the atmosphere until the energy of every soul on the mountain explodes as the starting tape is lifted and wheels begin to turn. Amid the chaos, a bemused bloke stands holding his skis mumbles: "Not the best day to decide to ski the glacier." The place is Alpe d'Huez, and the race is Megavalanche. The first event was held in 1995, the brainchild of downhill mountain bike pioneer ...

Wireless power zones to charge your phone (Cached) 18.4.2014 DNA: India
What if you are told you can charge your smart phone even if the power source is some distance away on a street or inside a restaurant? Taking the wireless technology one step ahead, researchers have removed the last remaining wires altogether by developing wireless power transfer technology. The result is Dipole Coil Resonant System (DCRS) that can charge 40 smart phones simultaneously, even if the power source is 5 metres away. "With DCRS, a large LED TV as well as three 40 watt fans can be powered from a 5-metre distance," said Chun T. Rim, a professor of nuclear and quantum engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in South Korea. The technology proved the possibility of a new remote power delivery mechanism that has never been tried at such a long distance. "Just like we see wi-fi zones everywhere today, we will eventually have many wi-power zones at such places as restaurants and streets that provide electric power wirelessly to electronic devices," Rim ...

Nato's action plan in Ukraine is right out of Dr Strangelove | John Pilger 17.4.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
From China to Ukraine, the US is pursuing its longstanding ambition to dominate the Eurasian landmass I watched Dr Strangelove the other day. I have seen it perhaps a dozen times; it makes sense of senseless news. When Major TJ "King" Kong goes "toe to toe with the Rooskies" and flies his rogue B52 nuclear bomber to a target in Russia, it's left to General "Buck" Turgidson to reassure the president. Strike first, says the general, and "you got no more than 10-20 million killed, tops". President Merkin Muffley: "I will not go down in history as the greatest mass murderer since Adolf Hitler." General Turgidson: "Perhaps it might be better, Mr President, if you were more concerned with the American people than with your image in the history books." The genius of Stanley Kubrick's film is that it accurately represents the cold war's lunacy and dangers. Most of the characters are based on real people and real maniacs. There is no equivalent to Strangelove today because popular culture is directed almost ...
