More than 100 missing as ferry sinks off the coast of South Korea
More than 100 people were still unaccounted for as efforts continued to rescue passengers aboard a South Korean ferry that sank off the country’s south-west coast on Wednesday morning.
Dozens of coastguard and navy vessels were battling to rescue passengers, including 325 high school pupils and their teachers. A major rescue operation is now underway involving more than 30 coastguard and military ships, as well as about a dozen helicopters.
Officials said two of the ship’s 476 passengers, which included more than 300 children, had been confirmed dead but there were fears that many passengers may have been trapped inside the vessel as it listed and sank. Full story

"What’s the sexiest part about being a librarian?"
"I’d say the width of our knowledge. The rest of academia seems to have a rather specific focal point, whereas librarians need to know enough to serve as a guide for researchers of every discipline."

Peter Molyneux doesn’t think highly of the Kinect

xbox-one-kinect-sensor_1280.0_cinema_640.02

In a recent Interview with EDGE the creator of Fable has recently said that “I actually wish Kinect wasn’t a requirement,” he also goes on to say “It feels like an unnecessary add-on to me. Maybe it’s because we’re in England, and it doesn’t really use the TV stuff, but it feels more and more like a joke. My son and I sit there saying random things at it, and it doesn’t work.

Google X Lab Files Patent for Contact Lens With Built-In Camera

Google has invented a new smart contact lens with an integrated camera. The camera would be very small and sit near the edge of the contact lens so that it doesn’t obscure your vision. By virtue of being part of the contact lens, the camera would naturally follow your gaze, allowing for a huge range of awesome applications, from the basis of a bionic eye system for blind and visually impaired people, through to early warning systems (the camera spots a hazard before your brain does), facial recognition, and superhuman powers (telescopic and infrared/night vision).

Human body parts grown in a lab

In a north London hospital, scientists are growing noses, ears and blood vessels in the laboratory in a bold attempt to make body parts using stem cells.

It is among several labs around the world, including in the U.S., that are working on the futuristic idea of growing custom-made organs in the lab.

While only a handful of patients have received the British lab-made organs so far— including tear ducts, blood vessels and windpipes — researchers hope they will soon be able to transplant more types of body parts into patients, including what would be the world’s first nose made partly from stem cells.

Photographer: Jas from JMJ83

This costume turned out completely different from what I originally had in mind, but I guess that’s what happens when you make it from scratch with no pattern! This was actually my first, ever, cosplay shoot and it kick started not only my cosplay page but my great friendship with Jas. I’m sure we’ll make more magic in the future :D
