Google explores the human body with HTML5

Google has just soft-launched its latest browser experiment, the Google Body Browser, which is basically Google Earth for the human body. If you visit bodybrowser.googlelabs.com in a supported web browser, you’ll get a three-dimensional layered model of the human anatomy that you can zoom in on, rotate and search. WebGL support hasn’t hit mainstream browsers, but the beta versions of Google Chrome, Safari and Firefox all support it.

This is your brain on Google

Woman’s persistence pays off in regenerated fingertip

(CNN) — After running inside from a rainstorm one Friday evening last January, Deepa Kulkarni leaned against the doorway with her right hand to take off her boots. Then, in an effort to make sure the dog didn’t get out, someone slammed the door hard, and it landed right on her pinky.

Kulkarni thought the door had only bruised her finger, but then she looked down and saw the tip of her pinky lying on the floor.

  I can testify this works.  The Old Man used a similar treatment when his big toe was rotting off from diabetes.  He still has the toe and it’s completely healed…it looks weird but at his age they would anyway.

LONDON, England (CNN) — God did not create the universe, world-famous physicist Stephen Hawking argues in a new book that aims to banish a divine creator from physics.  Hawking says in his book “The Grand Design” that, given the existence of gravity, “the universe can and will create itself from nothing,” according to an excerpt published Thursday in The Times of London.
“Spontaneous creation is the reason why there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist,” he writes in the excerpt.
“It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper [fuse] and set the universe going,” he writes.

Well, I won’t be drawn into the argument…it could go on for…..infinity.  But I do think it would be intreresting to look for “God” in physics.  Not that I was ever any good at math.  This is the way I solved “pi squared over 6”:

The celebrations for what would have been John Lennon’s 70th birthday, on October 9th of this year, have begun to take shape. On October 5th, EMI will reissue freshened versions of Lennon’s solo albums, along with some previously unreleased home recordings. And on the actual anniversary, Yoko Ono will hold her annual lighting of the Imagine Peace Tower on an island off ReykjavÌk, Iceland. “The fact that this year is John’s 70th birthday year is very special for us all,” Ono tells Rolling Stone. “We are all together celebrating John for having given us so much good energy in his lifetime and now.”

HARRISON, Michigan (NBC News Channel) — Sophie Thomas may own the world’s bravest cat.

The 97-year-old Harrison, Michigan resident was working in her garden recently when her neighbors four pit bulls surrounded her. Sophie says the dogs circled her, growling, before one lunged forward and bit her on the arm. She screamed and struck back, and as she did her cat Tiger jumped into the fray.

Tiger then bolted for the nearby garage. The dogs followed, giving Sophie a chance to escape into her house.As she was washing her wounds in the kitchen sink, she saw Tiger pop up at the door, unharmed.

The dogs are currently under quarantine and their owner has been fined.

(08-10) 18:04 PDT San Francisco — If Jack Daniels could talk, he could probably explain everything. But alas, Jack can only meow. So it remains a mystery as to how the nearly blind black cat, abducted from the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals a year ago, ended up on the streets of Harlem last week.
