A NEW play this weekend will tell the story of Edinburgh hospital pioneer and suffragist Elsie Inglis.Charting her life from birth to death, the play explores how she battled discrimination in her medical career, defied government advice to “go home and sit still” after she offered her services at the front in the First World War and campaigned for women’s right to vote but disapproved of using violence in the cause.The play, entitled Elsie Inglis The Woman Who Would Not Sit Still, is thought to be the first dramatisation of the story of the surgeon who established Scotland’s first maternity hospital staffed by women and went on to set up field hospitals during the First World War in Belgium, France, Russia and Serbia.Playwright Dave Dewar had never heard of Elsie Inglis until he was driving home one day and happened to … [Read more...] about New play brings to life story of hospital pioneer Elsie Inglis

There are thousands of Disney toys sold to kids throughout the world, but while they are all pretty much static, with “DreamPlay”, a new app for the iPad and Android devices, you can bring them to life. At least virtually.Walt Disney has now partnered with toy makers JAKKS Pacific and Patrick Soon-Shiong to link real physical toys to virtual reality. When you point your device’s camera at a toy it will get automatically recognized and one of thousands of animations will animate the toy on the tablet screen.You’ll see fairies fly around, critters playing musical instruments and other mythical characters playing the piano. Disney hopes to thus engage children to play more with their toys.The app itself works with all those animations and images stored in the cloud. It was already demonstrated at CES.

UPDATE: Apple just announced the iPad 2's dual-core A5 chip going into the newest iPhone 4S as well. If you are a current iPhone 4 owner, that would be the sole main reason to get the latest edition. Thus, we are reposting our article on the advantages of multicore platforms below, in order to gauge the possibilities this SoC brings to the fifth generation of the acclaimed handset from Cupertino. Besides the obvious 1080p Full HD video recording advantage, Apple also announced Infinity Blade 2, which will be optimized for the iPhone 4S, and also a beta of Siri, the voice command assistant, whose integration wouldn't be possible without the A5. And that's just a start...“Ask not for a dual-core gadget, ask what dual-core can do for you” is the way we would rephrase Kennedy's famous saying. Should we feel left in the dust next time someone flaunts their extra CPU core in our face, like in the case of the iPhone 4S, or can we live a long happy life with a single-core gadget, … [Read more...] about What can dual-core do for you: a course refresher what the A5 chip will bring to the Apple iPhone 4S

When people say "rice burner" that actually sounds worst but I don't believe it's an attack on Asian people. To me it's a small reliabe Asian made 4 cylinder car. The Japanese made these cars so popular during the 80's and 90's. Some people (including me) still want Honda's and Nissan's made in Japan instead of the US. The quality of my first car, a1984 Nissan 200sx, is still unmatched by the American cars released today. posted on 03 Feb 2014, 07:25 1 18.
