Warning: I write html like I drive a car. Greg is a very brave man to let me drive! Without further ado, put on your seatbelts, here’s my debut news.
- Cryptologists declare it to be medieval gibberish. No, not Dan Brown’s “The Da Vinci Code”, but the Voynich Manuscript.
- 50 ancient Minoan tombs uncovered.
- Future traffic police may use radio wave blasts to knock out car electronics. Let’s hope they’re not robot-driven cars.
- Of the 38 million people living with HIV, 14 million also have Tuberculosis. Of those with both HIV and TB, almost 70% live in Africa. Nelson Mandela calls for help.
- A major cause of the spread of HIV is a lack of condoms in third-world countries. The solution to the problem is so simple, it’s frustrating.
- A cd containing new songs by U2 was stolen. If you have it, please make me a copy… er, return it to Bono.
- Odour-destroying lightbulbs.
- Was there contact between the Ancient Chinese and the Olmecs? A great article, and the topic is a personal fave.
- You can also see Dr Mike Xu’s evidence for Ancient Chinese in Central America.
- An international archaeology film and video festival! Except it finishes today. I posted the link so we all know what we missed out on.
- Another scientific study into the effects of television on kids. I wonder if they’ll ever do a similar study on TDG readers and excessive computer use.
- Here’s a bizarre Japanese commercial that defies logic. Windows media player. All your base are belong to us.
Thanks Greg, Mr Mandela and Bono.
