Some key facts about radiation:
It’s a natural process.
Our bodies are constantly exposed to radiation.
Our bodies are designed to be exposed to it every single day without any harm to our health.
It isn’t killing us.
It isn’t man-made.
Only an infinitesimal amount of it comes from nuclear power plants and uranium mines.

Joint popping is one of those things some people revel in and others detest. What you may not have realized, though, is that fluid dynamics are responsible for the sound. Joints contain a non-Newtonian liquid called synovial fluid to lubricate them. When you manipulate the joint to stretch it, pressure in the fluid drops and gases dissolved in the synovial fluid are released, forming a cavitation bubble. The creation and collapse of this bubble are what cause the audible popping. (Video credit: SciShow)

Shotview

Augmented marksmanship system by TrackingPoint provides visual feed to a wearable AR device, allowing shooting around corners - video embedded below:

TrackingPoint, the worldwide leader in advanced firearms technology, has released a video from their Labs department that demonstrates the use of wearable technology along with a Precision Guided Firearm (PGF). PGF technology makes use of a bevy of sensors to make highly accurate ballistic calculations, taking into account wind, elevation, pressure, and more in real time. TrackingPoint’s PGFs enable shooters to lock on and accurately hit moving targets at up to 1200 yards. The video showcases the companies R&D testing of their Shotview streaming app for mobile devices, paired with consumer wearable technology.

When paired with wearable technology, PGFs can provide unprecedented benefits to shooters, such as the ability to shoot around corners, from behind low walls, and from other positions that provide exceptional cover. Without PGF technology, such positions would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to fire from.

The video demonstrates how wearable technology could enhance a shooter’s ability to engage targets on the battlefield. Similar to a fighter jet’s head’s-up display (HUD), the wearable PGF technology provides the shooter with visual aids to improve the aiming and shooting process. TrackingPoint’s ShotView system can be used to stream video to smartphones or tablets. With wearable technology, the ShotView system could be even more tightly integrated into the shooting experience.

A DISTRESSING STORY BEHIND THE IMAGE — Diego Frazão Torquato, a 12-year-old Brazilian boy, is crying while playing the violin during his teacher’s funeral at the São Francisco Xavier cemetery in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, October 19, 2009. Diego’s teacher, Evandro João da Silva, 44, coordinator of Afroreggae – one of Rio de Janeiro’s largest non-profit organizations – was murdered the day before in downtown Rio. Evandro had helped the boy escape poverty and violence through music. Less than six months after this photo was taken, Diego, who has survived meningitis at the age of four, died of leukaemia.
