#### Police ask for help finding Helper teens
by Michael Mcfall The Salt Lake Tribune

The Helper City Police Department is asking for the public’s help in finding
two Carbon County teens, missing since Thursday. Police were notified about
2:30 p.m. Thursday that Mattea Jeffs, 17, and Jesse Turner, 16, were missing.
Jeffs’ 15-year-old brother had seen them about 30 minutes prior, leaving from
the Jeffs home near 600 N. Martin Road. The two have not been heard from
since, according to a news release. Jeffs is described as a white female with
bright red hair and green eyes. She is...

Silicon’s crown is under threat: The semiconductor’s days as the king of
microchips for computers and smart devices could be numbered, thanks to the
development of the smallest transistor ever to be built from a rival material,
indium gallium arsenide.
The compound transistor, built by a team in MIT’s Microsystems Technology
Laboratories, performs well despite being just 22 nanometers (billionths of a
meter) in length. This makes it a promising candidate to eventually replace
silicon in computing devices, says co-developer Jesús del Alamo, the Donner
Professor of Science in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and
Computer Science (EECS), who built the transistor with EECS graduate student
Jianqian Lin and Dimitri Antoniadis, the Ray and Maria Stata Professor of
To keep pace with our demand for ever-faster and smarter computing devices,
the size of transistors is continually shrinking, allowing increasing numbers
of them to be squeezed onto microchips. “The more transistors you can pack on
a chip, the more powerful the chip is going to be, and the more functions the
chip is going to perform,” del Alamo says.
But as silicon transistors are reduced to the nanometer scale, the amount of
current that can be produced ...
Billy Blue Hair - What's Inside a Fire Station?
**By: Tia Ghose, LiveScience Staff Writer **
Thousands of jumbo squid have beached themselves on central California shores
this week, committing mass "suicide." But despite decades of study into the
phenomenon in which the squid essentially fling themselves onto shore, the
cause of these mass beachings have been a mystery.
But a few intriguing clues suggest poisonous algae that form so-called red
tides may be intoxicating the Humboldt squid and causing the disoriented
animals to swim ashore in Monterey Bay, said William Gilly, a marine biologist
at Stanford University's Hopkins Marine Station in Pacific Grove, Calif.
Each of the strandings has corresponded to a red tide, in which algae bloom
and release an extremely potent brain toxin, Gilly said. This fall, the red
tides have occurred every three weeks, around the same time as the squid
beachings, he said. (The squid have been stranding in large numbers for years,
with no known cause.)
"It's not exactly a smoking gun, but it's pretty circumstantial evidence that
there is some link," Gilly told LiveScience. [See Photos of the Stranded

taking a turn for the worse after being diagnosed with cancer earlier in
Max Burkholder -- who plays Max, the son of Kristina and Adam Braverman (Peter
Krause), on "Parenthood" -- told HuffPost TV via phone that he "cried so much"
when he read the script for the NBC series' Christmas installment, titled
"What to My Wondering Eyes." Below, 15-year-old Burkholder talks about Max's

How to make your own Canon Remote Switch

Holy celebrity auction, Batman! The one and only original Batmobile,
constructed by celebrity customizer George Barris, is slated to go up for
auction at the Barret-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, AZ, on January 19, 2013.
While a great many replicas and copies of the Batmobile have been bought and
sold, this particular machine has been owned by Barris since 1965, when he
purchased the car on which it is based, the Lincoln Futura Concept from 1955,
from Ford for the sum of one dollar. Money well spent, we'd say.
When Barris was approached to build the original Batmobile, he was reportedly
given just 15 days and $15,000 to make it happen. With that kind of deadline,
the Futura Concept, with its unique double-bubble roof and Ghia-styled
bodywork, was an ideal starting point.
Barris added such iconic bits and pieces as "a nose-mounted aluminum Cable
Cutter Blade, Bat Ray Projector, Anti-Theft Device, Detect-a-scope, Batscope,
Bat Eye Switch, Antenna Activator, Police Band Cut-In Switch, Automatic Tire
Inflation Device, Remote Batcomputer, the Batphone, Emergency Bat Turn Lever,
Anti-Fire Activator, Bat Smoke, Bat Photoscope, and many other Bat gadgets,"
such as twin parachutes at ...
