23:48 Fortunetelling Verdict Raises Thorny QuestionsA federal judge has struck down an ordinance banning fortunetelling, palm reading and astrology.
23:34 Samsung Buys U.K.-Based CSR's Mobile-Chip OperationsSamsung Electronics, the world's top phone maker, has agreed to buy the mobile chip operations of Cambridge, U.K.-based CSR PLC for $310 million, as well as buy a $34.4 million equity stake in the company in an investment that reportedly amounts to a 4.9 percent interest.
The move will allow Samsung to gain access to intellectual property as well as protect its own back on an increasingly litigious landscape, said Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT.
"I expect the deal for CSR's technology and patents has two primary goals: to strengthen Samsung's own Exynos SoC technologies and thus allow the company to more clearly differentiate their products, and to offer Samsung protection against potential litigation from competitors."
"Both issues are important," King said.
"The first relates to the company's market positioning, of course. But given the continuing courtroom drama between Samsung and Apple (as well as IP-related suits among other IT vendors), it's clear that litigation has become an increasingly common tool for promoting your own or quashing competitors' products. If CSR's assets can help Samsung avoid or triumph in those situations, the deal will have been well worth the cost."
Apple and Samsung have traded lawsuits over patent infringement, with Apple seeming to have the edge: It succeeded in having Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Nexus temporarily banned in the United States by a California judge. (The Nexus ban has been stayed for a month.)
The deal gives Samsung control of development of chips for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS connectivity, while maintaining control of its chip-making for televisions and audio equipment, according to press reports of the deal. If approved by South Korean regulators, it would be completed by the fourth quarter of the year.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the deal hands over 21 U.S. wireless patents.

23:24 NASA watching Tropical Storm Fabio head to southern CaliforniaSouthern California's coast is already feeling rough surf from Tropical Storm Fabio, and as the storm draws closer it is expected to bring scattered showers and thunderstorms as well. NASA's Aqua satellite peered into Fabio's clouds to see what power lurks under them, and saw only a small area of heavy rainfall remaining and the cooler waters that Fabio is now moving through.

23:24 Refining the tool kit for sustainable fisheriesAs spatial planning is used increasingly to manage fisheries and other ocean resources, researchers are working to determine the best ways to use and refine the various spatial management tools. Among them are marine protected areas (MPAs), one of the most common methods, which limit or entirely curtail fishing in a given area.
23:24 The electric atmosphere: Plasma is next NASA science targetOur day-to-day lives exist in what physicists would call an electrically neutral environment. Desks, books, chairs and bodies don't generally carry electricity and they don't stick to magnets. But life on Earth is substantially different from, well, almost everywhere else. Beyond Earth's protective atmosphere and extending all the way through interplanetary space, electrified particles dominate the scene. Indeed, 99% of the universe is made of this electrified gas, known as plasma.

22:27 A 'Kit' for increasing insulin productionScientists have identified the critical role of a receptor called c-Kit in the development and function of insulin-producing beta cells, making it an exciting therapeutic target for the management of diabetes. The research, led by Rennian Wang, demonstrated that overexpression of c-Kit not only leads to increased insulin production but also counteracts the early diabetic effects of a high-fat diet.
22:27 Exposure to sexual content in popular movies predicts sexual behavior in adolescenceIntuitively it simply makes sense: exposure to sexual content in movies at an early age probably influences adolescents' sexual behavior. And yet, even though a great deal of research has shown that adolescents who watch more risky behaviors in popular movies, like drinking or smoking, are more likely to drink and smoke themselves, surprisingly little research has examined whether movies influence adolescents' sexual behaviors.
22:27 Obesity plus low vitamin D may add up to a greater risk of diabetesThe combination of obesity and vitamin D deficiency may put people at even greater risk of insulin resistance than either factor alone, according to new research.
