HOT5 Daily 1/12/2009

1. "What is essential is invisible to the eye" A look at the tactical problems facing the Israeli Army and Hamas fighters.

Representative Sample: In the 64 odd years since the Second World War ended [the] nature of protective armor has changed from physical to information barriers.

2. "Ayn Rand’s "Atlas Shrugged": Novel or Prophecy?" Randian reality?

Representative Sample: the central themes of Ayn Rand’s massive book are playing out even now in Washington D.C. as an incompetent government hurries to create massive new legislative programs

3. "Search engines contribute to medicine" Pretty interesting.

Representative Sample: search algorithms used in digital communications can help scientists identify effective multi-drug combinations

4. "What we have become."  Reflections on the BART shooting that contains some good points, unfortunately.

Representative Sample:  By now, people also understand that there is a certain asymmetry to these situations. If you put your hand on a police officer, there will be dire consequences.

5. "The Madoff Scandal--Get Ready for More" How many more ponzi schemes are out there?

Representative Sample: I really think it could just be a matter of time here, before we see a few more Bernie Madoffs.
