Good ole DARPA has announced that it plans to launch a full scale rocket plane by 2016.

If New York art schools are to turn out more of these sorts of minds, if Cuomo has anything to do with it, it’ll be with much less bullying going on.
Well, perhaps this is more for younger minds, but new legislation will require schools to establish methods to detect and deter online bullying.
Taking effect from July 1st next year, schools will be required to investigate any student reports of cyberbullying, be it through email, Facebook or instant messaging.
We’re not suggesting we start tagging bullys, but one farmer in South Africa had a similar idea for his sheep.
These trials take place in the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Chile, Canada, the USA, Australia, New Zealand and other farming nations.
By attaching a mobile phone like device around the neck of one sheep in each of his four flocks, Erard Louw set it up so that it calls home when the sheep start to run.
The odd fright aside, if sheep are running, it typically means that thieves have broken in to try and steal them.
