uhh.....uh ohhhhh.....scarey....I knew it was happening but never saw it in print before this:
Collegians engineering new biology
By Scott Kirsner | January 24, 2005
The most important intercollegiate competition of 2004 didn't involve football, basketball, hockey, or baseball. It involved bacteria. The teams hailed from California Institute of Technology, Princeton, Boston University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the University of Texas at Austin, a group of schools that might soon be known as the E. Coli League.
Teams participating in last year's Synthetic Biology Competition wrote snippets of DNA code that were then inserted into bacteria or yeast, creating biological machines. The objective of the competition was, simply, to design the coolest machine.
Consensus was that the Texans triumphed, with a tiny lawn of E. coli bacteria that had been programmed to act like a piece of Kodak film, holding an image that had been projected onto it. (Their clever message, spelled out in gold amidst an orange field, was a nod to the student's traditional first attempt in a new programming language: "Hello World.") But Caltech's entry wasn't bad, either: yeast that changed color based on whether it was immersed in regular coffee, decaf, or espresso.
"Why are we doing this?" asks Drew Endy, an MIT researcher who organized the competition and whose work in synthetic biology is written about in the current issue of Wired magazine. "We want to learn how to engineer biology, and make sure that plenty of people learn how to do it. It's important to the future stability of society."
If terrorists and biohackers are able to design their own dangerous strains of smallpox or Ebola, Endy thinks it's important to have well-trained forces of good capable of creating biological machines to seek and destroy malicious viruses loosed on the world.
And microscopic biological machines could be used in other positive ways, for instance, neutralizing toxic spills in a harbor, or as rudimentary computers inside the body that would study the aging process or the spread of cancer. Endy is trying to foster the growth of synthetic biology, along with colleagues at MIT, by running the competition, and also by maintaining the Registry of Standard Biological Parts, a kind of parts catalog of the scraps of DNA that have been written for various purposes, which can then be used by researchers anywhere in their bio-machines. (The "parts" resemble computer programs written entirely using the letters A, G, T, and C, representing the nucleotides that make up DNA.)
There's also some early buzz about a synthetic biology start-up being formed by the venture firm Flagship Ventures of Cambridge. The firm is said to be aggregating patents in the area, and bringing together some of the leading researchers in the field. (Endy won't say whether he's involved.) Flagship managing partner Noubar Afeyan confirmed that he's interested in the area, and that he hopes to create the definitive "synbio" company, but wouldn't say more.Continued...

By the way....in this book I read on radioactive dust, it stated in a tiny sentence that bacteria make most fiber optics! First time I heard of this.

..........yes, also criminals and assorted trash of the world who prey upon sick people can always be found under the chips.
This is for all of you who so desperately want to hate me.

Good Lord, anger anger anger!!!! Not good, leads to health problems...
Anybody click on his link? Not I....trying my best to eliminate all the built in crap on this baby...
Do you realize How many sites are out there that have published a lot more precise accusations and assumptions with way worse stuff, implicating very powerful corporations, persons, entities......do you think after all this, we would not welcome a day in court???? You see, London....this has all to do with genetically modified grain I think. They have really messed up and don't want this out, why else would they go to such lengths...I have sent e mails and letters to 5 of the top watchdog groups on GM Food....I am sure they would be interested in certain strains of markers that somehow managed to cross cell barriers in human intestines, and latched on - a fear (that there is documented evidence of already from the researchers themselves) in the watchdog hands so I think the onlything there is to fear is fear itself...unless this ties in somehow to "dormant" markers being turned on and off at someone's discretion...but to persons that have no souls, souled out ya might say, they don't get it....but they will.
And for the record, there are numerous Exempt files for research conducted on non-consenting humans going on as we speak, in the name of "homeland security" as well as many documents of past impropriatary research ALREADY conducted on individuals, towns, and cities....so if a judge wonders WHY we might get the feeling we are guinea pigs -unless it's a case of "blind justice" I think we can get quite a few large organiztions behind us to validate the fear...which becomes evidence....red roper red roper....
Yeah, like huge pharmacuticals, big government, treasury department, irs, alphabets unlimited, all come to mind.....we've seen just how concerned for the "sick" they are...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA They have no concern for the sick, dying, or poor....that's the way it is, somethings never change.......get a job.
Thanks for the informative link, London.
It was the Sex Pistols, "Anarchy in the UK" Maggie.
I assure you that I'm not the Anti-Christ (even though the neighbors probably thought so back in the 70's when my friends and I played our guitars to an LP of the Sex Pistols in the garage )
I study various mystic traditions from many different cultures and compare them to discoveries in modern science, but I am a non-fundamentalist-non-fire and brimstone-non holy rolling Christian. As such I believe in the light of truth, and not being afraid of speaking it.
I really was duped and quite frightened by Tam Tam's presentation for a long time. Even though I'm ashamed to admit it now, I was very afraid that insect parts were growing inside of me. It wasn't until I read much of this thread that I realized that he was probably a scammer. One of my techy friends pointed out to me that it was a spammer scam
Therefore I am going to do that which is every American's right, which is to initiate an investigation on the basis of suspicion of fraud. Any American can do that without fear of civil liability.
If the "Tam Enterprise" is legitimate, he will suffer no harm in any way.

Where: 408 SMI (MMI Conference Room)
Speaker: Rich Proctor, Medical Microbiology & Immunology and Medicine
Title: Why Staphylococcus aureus has suddenly become so aggressive.
Abstract: Some of the new information about why S. aureus has suddenly become so aggressive and is killing healthy young people. This would be more clinical and epidemiological, but perhaps also of great interest to the group. The average age is 14 yo and the mortality rate is 70%!
When: Monday, March 26, 2001, 4:00-5:00 PM
Where: 408 SMI (MMI Conference Room)
Speaker: Peter McNamara, Dept. of Medical Microbiology & Immunology
Title: Staphylococcus aureus Virulence Factor Regulation.
Abstract: Staphylococcus aureus can cause a range of infections, syndromes, and toxicosis that vary in their severity, duration, and pathogenic mechanism. One common factor affecting the establishment and progression of staphylococcal disease is the production of the requisite cell-surface and extracellular proteins. S. aureus can produce upward of 40 molecules that augment virulence. These factors are regulated in a specific manner. The bacteria use signal transduction systems to sense the environmental conditions they encounter during the course of the pathogenic process and a regulatory RNA along with various transcriptional activators and repressors to optimize the expression of many genes to enhance survival new milieus. I will provide an overview of the staphylococcal regulatory loci, discuss our work on the identification and characterization of new transcriptional regulators, and within the limits of what is known, provide a model for the regulatory circuit that governs the production of virulence factors in S. aureus.

Here's one for you Tam Tam
Here's the lyrics in english. If you can't read them just think of me. You do pretty well with english when you're upset.
Top of the fold
Toast of the town
Everyone stops when you come around
They hold their breath for you
Heroes are born
Idols are made
We're all fools for this factory fame
And you've got the brand new face
You've got the brand new face
Stupid and wild
Poster boy, you're society's child
Cut your teeth
Cut your mouth
Cut it out
Meteor rise from obscurity
All it took was a killing spree
And the whole world was lying at your feet
I know my place
Stick to my lines
Stay in your shadow
Don't block your light
So you can shine divine
Who is online
