Essays reveal Stephen Hawking predicted race of 'superhumans' | Science | The Guardian
The scientist presented the possibility that genetic engineering could create a new species of superhuman that could destroy the rest of humanity. The essays, published in the Sunday Times, were written in preparation for a book that will be published on Tuesday.

“I am sure that during this century, people will discover how to modify both intelligence and instincts such as aggression,” he wrote.

“Laws will probably be passed against genetic engineering with humans. But some people won’t be able to resist the temptation to improve human characteristics, such as memory, resistance to disease and length of life.”

GoPro Isn’t Doomed Yet. But they must become a software company, fast.
GoPro needed to spend heavily in “video editing automation.”
GoPro needs software in spades, far beyond just something to make editing easier. The company that created the first mass-market visceral experience broadcasting device ought to have a hand in every dimension of the current live revolution, not just be one of its few cameras. That requires software. [...] Most consumers already have all the hardware they need to create video; what they need is software to make this infinity of images comprehensible. As the defensibility of hardware declines, GoPro has an advantage few other makers of software have: fans, tens or even hundreds of millions of them.

Scientists get 'gene editing' go-ahead - BBC News
UK scientists have been given the go-ahead by the fertility regulator to genetically modify human embryos. It is the first time a country has considered the DNA-altering technique in embryos and approved it. The research will take place at the Francis Crick Institute in London and aims to provide a deeper understanding of the earliest moments of human life. It will be illegal for the scientists to implant the modified embryos into a woman. But the field is attracting controversy over concerns it is opening the door to designer - or GM - babies.

Hawking: Humans at risk of lethal 'own goal' - BBC News
Humanity is at risk from a series of dangers of our own making, according to Prof Stephen Hawking. Nuclear war, global warming and genetically-engineered viruses are among the scenarios which he singles out. And he says that further progress in science and technology will create "new ways things can go wrong". Prof Hawking is giving this year's BBC Reith Lectures, which explore research into black holes, and his warning came in answer to audience questions. He says that assuming humanity eventually establishes colonies on other worlds, it will be able to survive. "Although the chance of a disaster to planet Earth in a given year may be quite low, it adds up over time, and becomes a near certainty in the next thousand or ten thousand years. [...] But he also said that future generations of researchers should be aware of how scientific and technological progress is changing the world, and to help the wider public understand it. //&! bit.ly/1RwS7yA

Gentechnik: Babys wunderbar genormt - Berg-Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Alles, was anders aussieht, was defekt und nicht dem Durchschnitt zu entsprechen scheint, wird abgelehnt. Wir sehen keine Menschen mit Behinderungen im öffentlichen Leben, zu dünne oder dicke Menschen werden offensiv in den wunderbaren sozialen Medien verachtet und gehasst. Deine Nase ist zu groß, dein Kiefer zu sperrig: Mach was, Mensch! Mach dich zum Teil der grauen Masse, der Jogger, der Kieferknochenmahler. Was also spricht gegen wunderbar perfekte Babys, wunderbar genormte Menschen?

Future of human gene editing to be decided at landmark summit | Science | The Guardian
Jennifer Doudna, an inventor of a gene editing tool called Crispr-Cas9, said Asilomar was much in mind when the summit was organised. “I think it’s this generation’s version of Asilomar,” she says. “It’s a very exciting time, but as with any powerful technology, there is always the risk that something will be done either intentionally or unintentionally that somehow has ill effects.”

Alice Evans | Fine Art Photographer
Alice Evans’ video pieces seek to expose the mechanisms of the filmmaking and photographic processes by leaving elements of the construction of the image within the frame. The inspiration for this technique is the filmic reveal shot. The films have fragmented narratives yet don’t offer up a fully-fledged story. The high production values suggest traditional narrative film, yet deliberately clumsy elements challenge this convention. The two films on display in this exhibition are ‘Call of the Klondike’ based on a western set during the 1849 gold rush, a film previously shown in Switzerland, and ‘Rusalka’ an operatic pub fight. Alice’s most recent photographic works are based on the Rorschach test, a psychological test used from the 1950’s onwards to detect an unconventional mind – this is the only test the artist has ever passed.

Filming in a First Class Lounge - YouTube
5:30 >> Frustrating that people copy your way of story telling, while you worked so hard to be original and new and your own thing and style. i don;t encourage it. There is nothing i can do when people copy it. Thus you have to evolve and try new things. "I just keep trying to do more and better work."
