I hope I manage to hold on long enough to see that. Circa 1974 - 2030, it's been a long time between drinks.

Russia to Begin Moon Colonization in 2030 – Report
12:20 08/05/2014


QUOTE (http://en.ria.ru/russia/20140508/189666959/Russia-to-Begin-Moon-Colonization-in-2030--Report.html)
MOSCOW, May 8 (RIA Novosti) – Russia has drafted a program for colonization of the moon, and plans to send the first expeditions to build a permanent lunar base in 2030, the Russian Izvestia daily said Thursday, citing an official document.

"The moon is a space object for the future exploration by terrestrial civilization, and a geopolitical competition for the Moon's natural resources may begin in the 21st century," said a report on a potential lunar program prepared by the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Roscosmos space agency and Moscow State University.

The program aims to build an inhabited moon base and testing ground by the middle of the century, which would allow mineral extraction on Earth's only natural satellite.

The project calls on developing a range of long-distance space technology to ensure the country can explore the moon independently from foreign partners. Earlier proposals for lunar exploration focused on strong international cooperation, as it was believed no single country could afford interplanetary projects on its own.

Russia will plan separate three- or four-year-long lunar projects for the next 16 years, according to the plan. The first four will take place between 2016 and 2025 and will focus on defining the physical and chemical composition of the moons south pole, where the future base will be sited. Space roundtrips are scheduled for 2028-30, and manned lunar exploration for 2030-40.

The first stage will cost the government 28.5 billion roubles ($800 million), Izvestia said.

Previous lunar expeditions, which started with the USSR's Luna program in 1959 and the US landing the first man on the Moon 10 years later, discovered aluminum, iron, titanium, rare earths and other minerals.

Hope this opens and plays OK. Truly mind bending stuff from the US Navy. Excellent 4 minute video approved by the US Navy:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




Subject: UAV Carrier Operations





This is truly history in the making. The aircraft being launched from the
deck of the aircraft carrier is a UAV. The Navy has been developing this
aircraft for almost 15 years The "pilots" are the guys on the deck with the
flight controls strapped to their arms.

For anyone of that bent, here is a list of sites that offer access to heaps of research papers of a scholarly nature.

http://roddymacleod.wordpress.com/2011/11/...-free-websites/

(I have not given any of these sites a test run yet but thought I'd post the link before I lost it.).

The usual way I keep an eye on new research stuff is to rely an inquisitive bloggers to filter and aggregate new stuff like

http://paul.kedrosky.com/

or

http://www.bakadesuyo.com/

or

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/notrocketscience/

To name but three of my regular haunts.

Anyone else got any other way-kwel aggregators of dorkish info (like yeah)?

I watched the 60 mins piece on the anti tnf for AD. Interesting. Seems to help quite a bit.

Thanks for posting. I've not had any personal contact with Alzheimer's disease but from what I know it is very distressing for all, and of course with the demographics the way they are, it is a burgeoning problem.

Good that some local boffins are checking it out. But here is a word of caution I came across through google:

QUOTE
Etanercept (brand name Enbrel) is a type of drug known as anti-TNF (anti-tumour necrosis factor). In the UK Etanercept is available for some people with rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, and for some children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis.

A 2006 pilot study showed small but significant improvements in various cognitive rating scales in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) after treatment with etanercept. A further study, administering to a single AD patient via perispinal infusion, showed rapid and significant improvement in Alzheimer's symptoms.

Etanercept, as a treatment for Alzhiemer's disease has only been trialled on a very small number of people and there are large gaps in the research. I think the Alzheimer's Society felt they could not draw any conclusions from initial results and had some serious concerns about the validity of the research.

A small number of US physicians offer etanercept treatment for AD at a cost of $10,000 to $40,000 per annum.


http://forum.alzheimers.org.uk/showthread....inal-etanercept

Who knows how reliable that poster is of course but in my google search I did come across the name of one yank doctor, a Dr Tobinick of Florida USA, who seemed to be doing lots to promote himself and the treatment he offers. He has set up business right in the heart of Retirement City USA so with a bit of hustle and advertising he would be making an absolute fortune I suspect.

He may be onto the silver bullet for AD of course. But it seems lots more research, like what the Brisbane uni is going to do, is needed.
