The author, Scott Sigler, is obviously very influenced by Michael Crichton and Stephen King without blindly copying. I have loved everything he's put out and look forward to his next projects.

Gay Rights
Via youngiskander...

"Why is that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?"

- Ernest Gaines


We would like to know who really believes in gay rights on livejournal. There is no bribe of a miracle or anything like that. If you truly believe in gay rights, then repost this and title the post as "Gay Rights." If you don't believe in gay rights, then just ignore this. Thanks.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

The whirlwind that was August
Hey all, sorry I’ve been absent/quiet. I’m just now getting caught up with the email/podcast/lj backlog caused by GenCon and our magical mystery tour of Northern California. So as promised (I’m talking to you the_stalwart I wanted to give my impression to my first GenCon.

Ok let me back up a bit... thanks to Indie Press Revolution and the dynamic duo of librisia and bar_sinister I got to go to GenCon’s 40th Anniversary. As some of you know I’ve been gaming since um 1976 and TSR/D&D was my first. So GenCon has always been that Holy Grail talked about but just like going to the moon, it would be cool but its not going to happen.

I’ve been to comic conventions (WizardWorld/ComicCon) and went to Dreamation and Origins this year. However if Origins is one thousand pennies, then GenCon is one million pennies and no one can tell you how much that is until the door opens above you and they drop one million pennies on your head! :)

I spent most of my time in the Exhibitors Hall and even with 5 days I know I missed something. I may try playing games at future GenCons but this year I was just trying to take it all in. I would have been nice to spend more time with the_stalwart, imogena, and Michelle but I’ve learned that sort of social time is better at Dreamation and to a lesser extent Origins. There wasn’t the down time I’ve seen at other conventions. Even though we were working very reasonable two hour shifts on the register and restocking, it seemed like I was always rushing to some where, even on my time.

Oh and I did end up buying some cool games from Simply Fun like Spy, Take Your Pick, and Simply Catan and stuff from Rio Grande Games Lost Cities and Carcassonne. AND I got the Spirit of the Century guys to sign my book woot!!

It was also great to be at the episode 100 of Have Games Will Travel and I bumped into Gary Gygax which was pretty neat. One of the high point was getting Feedback to sign the Darkhorse comic. He agreed to meet me after hours just before he was getting into his True Dungeon game. So I cut from dinner and a few blocks away got to the hotel and waited waited waited. I over heard security saying he was running late. I hid on the side and when I first caught sight of a very rushed Feedback, I stuck my hand out and he just had a big hero grin and a firm grip. So he took the time to say hi, get my name and sign the comic before he jumped into his game. It was very cool.

At the end I was exhausted and a week later we got on a plane to go to Sacramento California. figmentum98 is from California originally (9 year NJ transplant) and he father turns 70 this December. So they threw a surprise party for him which was pretty cool and caught him completely off guard. To put this in perspective, figmentum98 family has adopted the kids as grandkids and the kids love having a third set of grandparents and a super aunt and uncle on the West Coast. So our trip was more than just seeing some friends, we stayed with family and did our site seeing at the California State Fair Expo, Eureka (Redwoods and Agate Beach), and Lake Tahoe. We got to see Weird Al in concert on Labor Day at the State Fair, which was fantastic. jpj got the chance to ride through a tree at the Avenue of the Giants. And my son fell into Lake Tahoe when he lost his balance throwing stones.

August was great and if I wasn’t so lame I’d have cool picture posted. I’d like to promise to post more but you know...real life and all. I’ll do what I can. Thanks

Cheers

Robot soldiers to be armed with Tasers
By Mark Jewell, Associated Press
BOSTON — RoboCops and robot soldiers got a little closer to reality Thursday as a maker of floor-cleaning automatons teamed up with a stun-gun manufacturer to arm track-wheeled 'bots for police and the Pentagon.
By adding Tasers to robots it already makes for the military, iRobot says it hopes to give soldiers and law enforcement a defensive, non-lethal tool.

But some observers fear such developments could ultimately lead to robots capable of deciding on their own when to shoot and kill.

"It's one more step in that direction," said John Pike, director of GlobalSecurity.org, an Alexandria, Va.-based military research organization.

"It is not the first step in that direction, but I think at some point toward the end of the next decade, you're going to start seeing RoboCops, or a Terminator," Pike said, referring to a pair of 1980s robot-themed sci-fi films. "We may see autonomous robots capable of inflicting lethal force."

Jim Rymarcsuk, vice president for business development at Burlington, Mass.-based iRobot, said notions of armed robots acting on their own are far beyond what the company envisions for the partnership announced Thursday with Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Taser International.

"Right now, we have no plans to take any robot with a lethal-weapon approach to the market," Rymarcsuk said. "For this system, and all systems we have looked at, there is a human in the loop making the decisions. This in no way is giving the robot the capability to use force on its own."

Financial terms of the partnership were not disclosed. The companies said they have developed a model that will be demonstrated at a conference Taser is holding in Chicago on July 9-10. The model pairs iRobot's existing PackBot Explorer with the Taser X26 in what iRobot calls "the first robot of its kind with an on-board, integrated Taser payload."

There's no word when the system will be offered for sale, or for how much.

The system isn't entirely unprecedented. Foster-Miller Inc., a Waltham, Mass.-based rival of iRobot, already offers a version of its track-wheeled Talon robot that can be fitted with a Taser with laser-dot aiming capability.

The Taser, used by thousands of law enforcement agencies, is an electric stun gun designed to help officers subdue violent suspects without nightsticks or guns.

However, some critics contend the weapon can be deadly, particularly on suspects who use drugs or suffer from heart problems. Taser International and police counter that no weapon is risk-free, and that Tasers actually save lives by helping officers avoid more dangerous weapons.

For iRobot, its Taser-equipped system will be the first robot capable of using force to disable a person, rather than a bomb. The 17-year-old company is best known for its mobile robots for the consumer market, including the disc-shaped, carpet cleaning Roomba.

But home robots account for only 60% of the company's revenue. The rest comes from government and industrial customers, including the military and police.

Versions of iRobot's PackBot have disarmed roadside bombs and searched caves and buildings in Iraq and Afghanistan. Some scout dangerous areas before soldiers or emergency responders go in.

With the Taser venture, iRobot "is testing a new market, and they've found a cheap way to do it," said Alex Hamilton, an analyst with The Benchmark Co. "The PackBot works. You'll need software to make it work with the Taser, but my guess is they will be able to achieve it."

Pike at GlobalSecurity.org envisions police SWAT teams and prison guards using Taser-equipped robots to deal with hostage situations and unruly inmates. He also expects they could supplement — or even replace — human guards patrolling property.

"I could see rent-a-cop companies wanting to buy it, I can see corrections departments wanting to buy it, because it might be seen as a cost-effective alternative to having a human guard patrolling a perimeter," Pike said.

Pike says Taser-equipped, remote-controlled robots are still a few steps away from becoming killing machines. If that happens, the development would run counter to a robots-should-not-harm-humans principle that classic science fiction author Isaac Asimov outlined in his 1950 anthology, "I, Robot" — the namesake of iRobot the company.

"For now, as soon as you let go of the joystick, the robot just sits there," Pike said. "So questions of moral agency don't arise — that is to say, whose finger is on the trigger. But a little further down the road, when these ground vehicles do achieve greater autonomy, there may be no human finger on the trigger."

Stressed-out types at risk for memory problems
CHICAGO, Illinois (Reuters) -- People who are often stressed out or depressed are far more likely to develop memory problems than those with sunnier dispositions, U.S. researchers said Monday in a finding that sheds light on early predictors of Alzheimer's disease.

They said those who most often are anxious or depressed were 40 times more likely to develop mild cognitive impairment, a form of memory loss that is often a transitional stage between normal aging and dementia.

"Not only are these individuals losing cognition, but they are showing many of the changes in the brain that are associated with Alzheimer's disease," said Robert Wilson of Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois.

In prior studies, Wilson found that people who are more prone to distress are more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease than their more carefree counterparts.

"We now see that chronic distress is related to the first clinical manifestation of Alzheimer's disease," he said in a telephone interview.

People with mild cognitive impairment have some trouble remembering things, but they do not have significant disability. Not all people with this problem develop Alzheimer's disease, a much more serious impairment, but about 10 to 15 percent do, according to the Alzheimer's Society.

Wilson and colleagues analyzed data from two large studies involving 1,256 older people who started the studies with no memory problems.

After up to 12 years of follow-up, 482 people in the study developed mild cognitive impairment. Participants were rated on how prone they are to worry and depression.

"What we're measuring is a personality trait that we all have to greater or lesser degree. We all experience anxiety and periodic depression. This trait helps identify people for whom that is more characteristic than others," said Wilson, whose study appears in this week's issue of the journal Neurology.

"This isn't a measure of stress, but of the response to stress," he said.

The latest research suggests that chronic stress may harm parts of the brain responsible for responding to stress -- an area that is also associated with memory, he said.

"The bigger impact on public health will depend on us understanding the neurobiological basis for this," he said.

That is not yet clear, but the research might lead to early treatments, such as promoting exercise to reduce stress or drug therapy for depression.

"It could open up new avenues for strategies to delay the symptoms of this disease," he said.

Drug dealers are selling colored crystal methamphetamine known as "Strawberry Quick."
This is true. It can be checked out at
http://www.snopes.com/horrors/drugs/candymeth.asp

Be on the lookout for a new form of Crystalized Meth that is targeted at children.

They are calling this new form of meth "Strawberry Quick" and it looks like the "Pop Rocks" candy that sizzle in your mouth. In it's current form, it is dark pink in color and has a strawberry scent to it.

A red methamphetamine has been marketed as a powdered form of an energy drink.

However, while colored versions of methamphetamine that resemble candy are certainly available, whether the drug is actually being sold in flavored versions remains a subject of some dispute. Police labs don't generally test drugs for flavoring ingredients, so at least some of the seizures of colored meth may have prompted statements about "flavored" meth that were based solely on the drug's colorful appearance.) It's also not clear that either coloring or flavoring is being added to meth for the express purpose of making the drug appeal to children.

Daughter killed over reading test
**Looks like the wrong parents fell off the roof.**

BEIJING, China (Reuters) -- A Chinese couple beat their daughter to death a few days before her third birthday because she could not recognize one Chinese character, a newspaper said on Friday.

The father, identified only by the surname Zeng, and his wife, Zhang, were arrested in the central province of Henan on Wednesday after the attack on the girl who could not read the Chinese character "jiao", meaning "banana", the Beijing News said.

The child "with bruises all around the body" died in the hospital after being kicked and punched, the newspaper said.

Chinese parents traditionally have high expectations for their children at school. Earlier this month, a woman from southern China was detained on suspicion of killing her four-year-old daughter because she could not count.

Spitting contest man hospitalized
BERLIN, Germany (Reuters) -- A 43-year-old German man was taken to hospital in critical condition after he fell off a second storey balcony during a spitting contest with his 12-year-old son, police said on Friday.

A spokesman for the police in the eastern town of Cottbus said the man in Forst had apparently lost his balance after thrusting too far forward in his attempt to outspit his son.

He tumbled over the ledge and landed on a balcony of the ground floor apartment, police said. He was taken to hospital in a rescue helicopter.

Baby 'Bubba' gets a gun permit
CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- "Bubba" Ludwig can't walk, talk or open the refrigerator door -- but he does have his very own Illinois gun permit.

The 10-month-old, whose given name is Howard David Ludwig, was issued a firearm owner's identification card after his father, Howard Ludwig, paid the $5 fee and filled out the application, not expecting to actually get one.

The card lists the baby's height (2 feet, 3 inches), weight (20 pounds) and has a scribble where the signature should be.

With some exceptions, the cards are required of any Illinois residents purchasing or possessing firearms or ammunition within the state. There are no age restrictions on the cards, an official said.

Illinois State Police oversee the application process. Their purpose, said Lt. Scott Compton, is to keep guns out of the hands of convicted felons, those under an order of protection and those convicted of domestic violence.

"Does a 10-month-old need a FOID card? No, but there are no restrictions under the act regarding age of applicants," he said.

Ludwig, 30, of Chicago, applied for the card after his own father bought Bubba a 12-gauge Beretta shotgun as a gift. The weapon will probably be kept at Ludwig's father's house until the boy is at least 14.

Feedback Interview
Feedback; A Hero’s Calling” Episode #3, “A Friend In Deed is slated to release on May 3rd, causing it to share the weekend with the third release of Matt Atherton’s own hero, Spider-Man.

The audio series, continuing now at BrokenSea Audio Productions, is a fan-produced collaboration of talent dedicated to furthering the adventures of Feedback, the winner of Season One’s “Who Wants To Be A Superhero…?” From around the internet, many reviews of the Sci Fi Channel television show have stated that Feedback was the hero who made them take the show more seriously than they may have started out. Feedback’s determination, raw emotion, and fanboy history with Spider-Man and Stan Lee made him the representative for most comicbook loving fans who loved the show.

Out of this fanbase sprung “Tech Support“, the fan club where in July of last year Matthew Atherton firmly rooted himself while the series unfolded. By his interaction on a regular basis with the group, Matt gave hundreds of ordinary fans the chance to become something more—they became his friends, and then in August they watched their friend win the title of “The Next Great Superhero”.

Two of those friends (Mike Winters, the series’ announcer and actor, and Alan White, producer and writer) chatted with Feedback on Wednesday about the next installment of “A Hero’s Calling.”

MW: Ready to go?
Feedback: Yes!
I’m sorry we didn’t get more of an opportunity to talk on Zach’s (Tech Support’s originator of “Console”) phone last Saturday!

MW: It’s all right, I’d be happy either way.
Feedback: Fire away!

MW: Okay.
Feedback: By the way… Hi Alan!
AW: Hello there!
MW: (Okay, Question #1–) Is it really you, Matthew Atherton, playing the part of Feedback in the audio drama?
Feedback: Well… how can you be sure that this is really me typing this answer?

AW: lol
Feedback: I may be Sarah, filling in for her husband as he is off fighting the evils of the world!

AW: Blind faith.
MW: Then, she’s quite the impressionist
AW: Sarah’s answers will do! Though if we get some extra detail about the clutter in the house, we’ll know what’s up.
MW: LOL
Feedback: At some point, in most things, I think you have to decide whether you are going to trust someone. I hope that people feel that any trust they place in me is not a mistake.

AW: Heh. Well it’s been so far so good from my perspective.
Feedback: To answer your question, yes - the person answering this question is the exact same person doing the voice of Feedback in the audio drama.

MW: Was that the case from the very start?
Feedback: Oh absolutely. When Alan talked to me about doing the audio drama, I was super excited (excuse the pun!)
So, I started looking for recording studios in my area.
During my internet search, I came across “Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic” and saw that they had a chapter close to my house.
Now, obviously, Sarah and I found an actual recording studio to do the first episode, but I was intrigued by RFB&D, so I went to one of their informational meetings.
I was really impressed by what they do, so I decided to start volunteering there once a week, reading textbooks so that others could pursue their dreams, without the printed work being a barrier.

AW: Wow. Didn’t know that’s when you started volunteering there.
Feedback: I then immediately adopted them as one of my sponsored charities, and added them to the already established “Make-A-Wish” Foundation for whom I raise money.

MW: It’s amazing how things begin sometimes
Feedback: Yep! Thanks to you, Alan - a lot of people are benefiting from the money from the autographs and photos from the conventions!
Wow… lot of prepositions in that last sentence…

AW: As if I could tell…
Feedback: Yes, Mike, it is amazing how things play out!
But, I also believe that everything happens for a reason.
For instance, if you watch the DVD interview that Kevin Smith did with Stan Lee, you’ll notice something interesting…
I won’t go into it, but if John F. Kennedy had not been killed, Spider-Man might never have come to be…
Stan was working on a magazine and having fun with it, and the third issue had JFK on the front - he was adding cartoon captions to real photos of celebrities…
Right before the issue was published, JFK was assassinated, so the third issue, and the title, was cancelled, and Stan went on to other things

MW: and then where would you be today?
AW: Where would we ALL be?
MW: True
Feedback: Well, I ask myself that same question of where would I be if my father had not died? I wouldn’t be the same person.

AW: Matt, I noticed that Stan covers the death of your father in the comic. How far do you want to see that covered in fiction–ours or Stan’s?
Feedback: Everything in my life is fair game for the audio dramas. I think it might be challenging for a writer to try to capture what I might say about it,
But based on the story lines that I’ve seen and the quality of the writing, I think if it were involved in a compelling story - they’d get it right.

AW: Whew. Now that’s some faith right there.
Feedback: It made me who I am, so it is part of Feedback - I’d just want it to be part of a good story.

MW: How did the idea of an audio series based on you come about?
Feedback: Well, I’d have to go back through my emails to give you the exact details, but it all started with one man - Alan White.

AW: Heh. Even I forget the details.
Feedback: He had some contacts over at Darker Projects, and without his enthusiasm and passion to make it happen, it would never have come to pass!
In fact… the first studio session cost Sarah and I $60 to do (we cranked it out in an hour) and I let Alan know that I’d like to continue it, but that it might get expensive to do…
The next thing I know, two USB Microphones show up in my P.O. box, and Sarah and I are off to the races! Courtesy of Alan White!

MW: lol
Feedback: So, anytime you hear my voice… it’s thanks to Alan. And the stories that Tech Support members have provided are so great - I’m glad that we have an opportunity to make them come alive!

AW: I hated that I proposed something to you that was going to be costing you money.
Feedback: I’m glad you proposed it, Alan! I would never have found RFB&D if you hadn’t!

MW: I’ve heard the first two episodes and it looks like you know what you’re doing. Which came first for you? Acting or being a superhero?
Feedback: Well, being a superhero happened for me in my Spidey underoos when I was 4. So, my passion for superheroes, and Spidey in particular, came way before I ever did any acting.
But, my first play was “Mary Poppins” and I did that in 5th grade - I was the Bobby, and talked in a Cockney accent.
No one could understand me… but it led to doing more plays. I never had a single year of school after 5th grade where I wasn’t in at least one play.
That included junior high, high school, and college.
But my hope was always that one day it would lead to me playing a superhero in a little student film or something like that. To be able to lend my voice to the audio drama is really fun! It’s my chance to be a superhero!

AW: It’s you continuing to be a superhero!
MW: Episode #3 is called “A Friend In Deed” and it’s being released on May 3rd, the weekend that Spider-Man #3 is also being released. Is that a coincidence, Matthew, given what Spider-Man means to you?
Feedback: There is no such thing as “coincidence!” I’m not a conspiracy theorist, I just believe in “the poetry of the universe.” It’s that whole “things happen for a reason” belief that I just can’t seem to shake.
I’m excited that both come out on the same weekend! I hope fans of Feedback will have some “residual visuals” of the Spidey flick in their head as they hear the battles in Episode 3 of the audio drama!

MW: Alan, a question for you. Obviously, it wouldn’t be an audio series without other voice actors. How was the audition process?
AW: Nervewracking! I’m always terrified of opening an audition file and finding that it’s awful. Because I know how much everyone who auditions wants to be in the audio. And I’m not the kind of dude who likes to reject people.
MW: I know how hard that is
AW: But I’m so thankful that 95% of all auditions are awesome.
Starting off with Matt’s. If he hadn’t been right for it, where would it all have ended up?
AW: But he blows me away. You will not believe him as Spectre. I can’t wait until you guys hear it.
MW: Nitro G has a very pivotal role in Epsiode #3. Will any other of the “Who Wants To Be A Superhero…?” contestants be in the series?
Feedback: I hope so! I hear that Major Victory may be lending his voice to Episode 4, and I know that Fat Momma would be happy to be involved, too. I’ll actually see her this Saturday in Rancho Cucamonga for Free Comic Book Day (The 8-page preview of Feedback’s comic book will be available at comic retailers across the country).
Major Victory is being flown to the U.K. to do some promotion of “Who Wants To Be a Superhero…?”, and left yesterday. He was supposed to be there, too, but won’t return until Sunday evening.

AW: Actually, Creature contacted me via the SciFi boards and I’m including her in Episode #6.
Feedback: As many people as we can have involved, the better! I love that members of Tech Support are contributing to the voices as well!
AW: Oh yeah … I saw the commercials for the UK release! Your commercial KILLS.
Feedback: There’s a commercial?

AW: YUP. There’s a commercial for all of you.
Archive (Tech Support’s “Acting Director of Information Technologies”) posted the link at K!
Yours. ROCKS.
MW: I’ll have to look into that one.
Feedback: Wow … I’ll have to check the K! boards! Kamikaze Komics

MW: During the hidden camera/secret identity challenge, did you guys end up eating your lunches, and did you keep the change?
Feedback: The food went to waste. It sat there for hours, and no one was keen on eating it and having stomach problems. I gave the rest of my change to the producers, since we were told that we were not allowed to have money.

MW: makes sense. too bad about the food, though
Feedback: That chicken-kabob I got looked good!

MW: how badly damaged was the fan after you kicked it–accidentally, of course.
Feedback: Well, the fan was okay, but the pull-string was never repaired, despite my efforts to do so… The funny thing is, I wasn’t “really” aiming for it. I was aiming just below it…

MW: That suit is just as flexible as you are, which is pretty useful …
Feedback: It’s starting to show its age… but! I just got a phone call today that the stunt costume from Bulgaria is being shipped to me (Feedback’s role in the Sci Fi Channel movie was filmed last October in Bulgaria, to be released to coincide with WWTBAS..? Season 2’s release)!

MW: neat
AW: It looks the same?
Feedback: It’s not as good as the real one, but maybe I can retire the original and build that vault I always wanted to build for it!

MW: LOL
AW: LOL With the fake bbookcase front, who’s book titles begin with F — E — E — D — B — A — C — K to pull out in that order and reveal the hidden panel behind…
MW: I know, I saw Jitter’s video. (Tech Support member whose original scores provide the background for the audio adventures recorded the panel of Feedback and Matt Haley at the Phoenix Con, where Feedback revealed his plan to save the costume for his future kids behind a sliding bookshelf)
Feedback: Cool!

MW: it’s a really cool idea
Feedback: Well, I hope you guys enjoyed this as much as I did!

AW: Always a pleasure, Feedback!
Feedback: And the same to you, Mr. White!

AW: Aw shuckins!
MW: Once again, Feedback, a privilege, a pleasure, and an honor
Feedback: Mike, I’m really glad we got to do this! Thanks for being a great interviewer!

MW: Coming from you, Matt, that means a lot
AW: Give Sarah my fond ‘What’s up?!’
Feedback: Will do!
Well, gotta run… the world is in trouble again! (My world, if I don’t get my programming done!)

MW: Bye, Matt
Feedback: GAME ON!!!

Season Two of “Who Wants To Be A Superhero …?” will air on the Sci Fi Channel this summer!
