The microchip implants that let you pay with your hand

 

Quote

A microchip was first implanted into a human back in 1998, but it is only during the past decade that the technology has been available commercially.

 

And when it comes to implantable payment chips, British-Polish firm, Walletmor, says that last year it became the first company to offer them for sale.

"The implant can be used to pay for a drink on the beach in Rio, a coffee in New York, a haircut in Paris - or at your local grocery store," says founder and chief executive Wojtek Paprota. "It can be used wherever contactless payments are accepted."

Way back a few years a co-worker who was a pilot was telling me that a lot of small airplane crashes are caused by pilots thinking they are doing fine and not checking instruments and that pilots being able to fly into clouds and keeping altitude and angle by sight/instincts was bunk.

Is an unknown, extraordinarily ancient civilisation buried under eastern Turkey?

 

Quote

Karahan Tepe (pronounced Kah-rah-hann Tepp-ay), which is now emerging from the dusty Plains of Harran, in eastern Turkey, is astoundingly ancient. Put it another way: it is estimated to be 11-13,000 years old.

This number is so large it is hard to take in. For comparison the Great Pyramid at Giza is 4,500 years old. Stonehenge is 5,000 years old. The Cairn de Barnenez tomb-complex in Brittany, perhaps the oldest standing structure in Europe, could be up to 7,000 years old.
