Google Glass finally consiederd hip… after being modelled by employee outed as married tech boss’s lover
Google Glass goes hip…and model employee showcasing them is marketing manager outed as married tech boss’s lover
- Geeky looking voice-activated device given style makeover
- 26-year-old pictured in new version has been linked to Sergey Brin
They have been hailed as the future of technology but when they were released to developers in April Google Glass devices were also criticized by some for looking slightly geeky.
However, the voice-activated device has had a trendy makeover, and has been fitted on more normal looking frames.
The new-look device was modeled by Amanda Rosenberg, a 26-year-old Google Glass marketing manager, who is said to be dating Sergey Brin, the Internet giant’s married co-founder.
New look: Amanda Rosenberg models the latest design for Google Glass
It shows the woman credited with coming up with the device’s catch phrase ‘OK glass’ laughing as she models tortoiseshell clear frames and shades fitted with the device.
Ms Rosenberg, who joined Google in 2008, was reported to be in a relationship with 40-year-old Brin.
A spokesman for the company’s co-founder said he had been living apart from Anne Wojcicki, his wife of six years. There was no suggestion that he had started his relationship with Ms Rosenberg before the separation.
Google Glass, which has raised concerns about security and privacy since its early version was released to some developers, is due to go on general sale next year.
Many people fear that the use of Google Glass with its intelligent cameras will erode people’s privacy.

Inside the hospital-themed restaurant where ‘patients’ pay to wear straitjackets while waitresses dressed as nurses spoonfeed them body parts
Those with a penchant for doctors and nurses and without a fear of hospitals are flocking to a unique concept diner in Latvia.
The trendy hospital-themed restaurant, named Hospitalis, sees chefs dressed as doctors and waitresses in nurse uniforms.
Meals are eaten in a stylised operating theatre, on a dentist’s chair or even in a gynaecologist’s exam room, served on stainless steel dishes and eaten with surgical utensils. Seasonings are added with a syringe.
Customers (or ‘patients’) also have the option to be tied up in a straitjacket and have their meal spoonfed to them by a nurse.
The medical restaurant in Riga, Latvia serves up peculiar macabre dishes such as cake topped with realistic-looking body parts such as fingers, noses and tongues.
At the bar, staff dressed as surgeons serve cocktails and wine in scientific flasks, beakers, test tubes, vials and IV drips.
The authentic decor features white walls and ceilings, a wipe-clean floor with shiny tiles, and walls decorated with polished surgical instruments and medical books.
X-rays hang and video screens play medical clips from various popular movies.
Customers can get dressed up in a straitjacket and be spoonfed by sexy nurse-waitresses, while the macabre decor is inspired by hospital interiors
All medical-related accessories have reportedly been supplied by real hospitals and Latvia’s Museum of the History of Medicine.
The atmosphere could be described as ‘sterile’ but that is all part of the plan, says restaurant director Marita Bundule.[Top]
Legal high called Liquid Gold is being sold on Shell petrol station counter next to children’s sweets
- ‘Poppers’ found on sale at a Shell garage in Barnsley, South Yorkshire
- It’s a slang term given to alkyl nitrites, inhaled for recreational purposes
- Chemicals come in small bottles – often called Liquid Gold or Pure Gold
A legal high was found being sold on the counter of a petrol station – next to children’s sweets.
‘Poppers’ – a slang term given to the chemical called alkyl nitrites, which is inhaled for recreational purposes – were on sale at a Shell garage in Hoyland Common area of Barnsley, South Yorkshire.
They come in small bottles – often called Liquid Gold or Pure Gold – and users report getting a short but quick head rush from them, which is caused by a sudden surge of blood to the heart and brain.
Side effects can include chemical burns to body tissues, sickness, faintness or weakness, and even death if swallowed. Possession of poppers is not illegal – but supplying can be an offence.
The gold bottles, which cost around £4 each, claim to be ‘room odourisers’. They have a child-proof cap and read ‘highly flammable’ and ‘toxic’ with the skull and crossbones logo.
But despite claiming to be air fresheners, the bottles were not found to be among the cleaning products in the garage – but alongside other items including e-cigarettes and sweets.
A local resident, who did not want to be named, said she was ‘appalled’ that they were so readily available. The mother of two added: ‘I’m shocked that you can buy something like that at a garage.
Treating the brain with sound waves could be a radical new treatment for depression.
New research shows short bursts of ultrasound (sound waves above the range of human hearing), at just 30 seconds a time, appear to boost mood and ease anxiety.
Volunteers reported significant improvements in mental wellbeing within ten minutes of a single burst of sonic waves.
The treatment is thought to work by stimulating cells, called neurons, in areas of the brain involved in governing mood, such as the limbic system. This sits near the top of the brain and controls emotions.
Scientists behind the experimental therapy now hope to turn it into an effective alternative to anti- depressant drugs.
Up to one in five people in Britain are affected by depression at some point, and the prescribing of anti-depressant pills on the NHS has reached record levels. Most work by adjusting levels of a mood-altering chemical called serotonin.
These drugs are most effective for severe depression, although there is controversy over whether they help those with mild depression.
The drugs can also trigger side-effects ranging from sickness and fatigue to obesity and sexual dysfunction. Talking therapies are also effective – but availability on the NHS can be patchy and there are often long waiting lists.
O ne experimental, drug-free treatment that has gained popularity is transcranial magnetic stimulation, where magnetic waves are beamed into the head.
Research suggests the therapy can have positive results. However, some patients find it uncomfortable as they can feel the waves passing through their head.
New research suggests that ultrasound, which has been in regular medical use since the Twenties, may offer a more comfortable alternative.
It has been known for some years that, at certain frequencies, ultrasound can also stimulate or ‘excite’ cells in the body by making them vibrate.
For example, tests on mice have shown sonic waves delivered into the brain can fire up cells that control movement, making them jerk their paws.
Sex may protect our brains from decline, claim scientists from Princeton University in the U.S. Animal studies suggest sex stimulates growth of cells in the part of the brain responsible for memory and learning.
Scientists at the University of Arizona wanted to see if mood could be affected in a similar way. They recruited 14 students and gave half a blast of sound by holding an ultrasound probe against the side of their head for 30 seconds.
The rest were given a dummy treatment where the same probe was used, but researchers held down a button that stopped the sonic waves passing though.
The students thought the experiment was to do with pain control. Researchers checked their mood ten minutes after the treatment, using a special scale called the Visual Analogue Mood Scale.
This is a recognised scoring system that rates feelings of fear, confusion, sadness, anger and tension on a scale of zero to 100, with higher scores representing more positive emotions.
The results, published in the journal Brain Stimulation, showed students given dummy treatment showed barely any effect, scoring an average 58.4 points out of 100 before the treatment, and 58.3 ten minutes later.
But the ultrasound group saw their score rise from 54.6 to 59.3 in just ten minutes.
Commenting on the research, Professor Nick Craddock, from the Royal College of Psychiatrists, said: ‘It is interesting that ultrasound to the head has some effects on brain function and can influence mood.
‘There is potential for it being helpful in clinical depression and anxiety. But this will need a lot more work and well-conducted clinical trials before it could be brought into the clinic.’[Top]
- Cops using glass app could have access to criminal histories, documents and live security camera footage
- Also plans to allow communications between agents
- To be run on 4G data designed only for emergency responders
Google Glass could be used by police in the future with a new app unveiled specifically for cops which allows them to bring up live feeds from security cameras and criminal records as they pursue suspects.
The new program, being developed by Mutualink, a security firm, will be targeted at the emergency services allowing them to tap into nearby camera footage and view documents and building schematics as they respond to 911 calls, Techcrunch reports.
The company claims that the app, which will also allow first responders to communicate – including via video – as they move, will help save lives and apprehend suspects. However, the program may also raise privacy and data security concerns given the app would bring together so much potentially sensitive information.
The app is being demonstrated this week at the APCO public safety communications conference in Anaheim, California by the vendor – which specializes in building networks meant to share voice, video, data and other communications between defense and law enforcement clients, according to its website.
‘The capabilities that are made possible by combining Google Glass and Mutualink can save lives in many crisis response situations,’ Joe Mazzarella, Senior Vice President of Mutualink said in a statement.
On privacy, the company says that ‘Google Glass is no different from the many public and private surveillance systems already deployed that capture public activity’.
In terms of security, Mutualink say the app would only be open to authorities and nothing used would be stored on a company database since it is provided on-demand and the connection used to receive it is dropped as soon as the information is no longer needed.
Data connectivity would be provided through FirstNet, an emergency responder-only data network recently mandated by Congress. Funded by the fedral government and built by individual states, It is expected to be online in multiple states by the end of this year, according to GCN.
Mutualink has developed systems for law enforcement, hospitals, mass transit and even NATO Special Operations to share information freely.

Will we ever know?
Will we ever understand that WE are those aliens?
Will we ever wake up from the holographic matrix and see that rebirth has nothing to do with death but with life?
Will we ever know that WE are the past, the present and the future?
Will we ever understand?
The understand of our mind and its chemicals is the way to overthrow their fucked up system!
Understanding you as a creature is understanding their way of thinking!
Do you want to save yourself?
Do you want to talk and walk with others after the rising of the phoenix?
REMORSE is the feeling that can save you!
This feeling is equal to love but somehow slightly stronger…it can change events that already happened.
“Change we can believe in”…it has nothing to do with a political view on the globe, it’s an statement which indicate chemical reactions, YOUR chemistry![Top]
Think 3D instate of 2D!
Now let’s look at this from a different (tri) angle; why is the shape of the triangle so imported to many of those secret societies and in science?
What does that symbol mean?
It means “change in” and “heat” as in “you have to heat this in order to make the reaction happen.”
In Ancient Greek, it represented a voiced dental plosive /d/. In Modern Greek, it represents a voiced dental fricative /ð/, like the “th” in “that” or “this”.
The voiced dental stop is a type of consonantal sound, used in some spoken languages.
Explanation; Change will occur with particular sound frequencies which also can create heat (energy and light).
And we know by now that some sound-waves do change your brain-waves which can influence your chemistry and thus your behavior.
But before they can change you natural waves, they need to know what your frequency is … your bio-signal.
So the need you on the internet to see how you respond to certain things like war, decapitation, a sweet kitten or pron.
The NSA and MI5/6 listening in on your private conversations and it doesn’t matter where you are, they hear you if they want to.
And now they have it … BECAUSE YOU ARE ALWAYS WALKING AROUND WITH YOU I-PHONE OR TABLET!
The abandoned Nazi railway station in the mountains that fell into disrepair… and now hides a secret laboratory researching dark matter
It was the largest and most glamorous railway station in the world, a shining jewel of Art Nouveau elegance nestling high in the Pyrenees mountains.
But after a chequered history which saw it commandeered by the Nazis during the Second World War, Canfranc International Railway Station has slowly slipped into disrepair and is now little more than a crumbling shell.
Yet it hides a remarkable secret – deep below the surface in the old tunnels that cross the border between Spain and France, scientists have set up movable astroparticle laboratories where they are attempting to unlock the mysteries of dark matter.
Situated on the Spanish side of the border, Canfranc opened to a great fanfare in 1928 and was the shining centrepiece of the main line between France and Spain.
For years, travellers marvelled at the stunning architecture as those who could afford it, checked in to its luxurious adjoining hotel.
The station and the tunnel linking Spain and France were closed during the Spanish Civil War but later re-opened and the station became busy once more, the slate.com reports.
At the start of the World War Two, Canfranc provided a vital lifeline for thousands of Jewish refugees fleeing occupied Europe.
The Nazi leader appears to have been impressed and, after recognising the station’s logistical importance, the Germans took control raising their Swastika flag above the ornate towers.
The Nazis first used it to transport hundreds of tonnes of looted gold plundered across Europe.
Perversely at the end of the war, the station that had once helped thousands of Jews flee the holocaust was used by Nazi War criminals to evade capture themselves.
A large steam locomotive jumped the rails and crashed. Luckily no one was killed, but it spelt the end for CanFranc as a railway station.
Abandoned and apparently forgotten, it became prey to vandals, visited only by the occasional curious tourist, the once magnificent walls were daubed with graffiti, the gleaming ticket hall and other offices allowed to collect dust and debris.
That was until 1985 when Spanish physicists realised Canfranc would be the perfect location for an underground astroparticle laboratory.
It is now used to research dark matter, with an entrance beneath the station and movable labs set up in the old railway tunnels.
Over the years there has been much talk about reopening it as a station, but although some plans have been put forward, it seems an unlikely pipe dream.[Top]
