Voting via the Internet raises social and technical issues
Elections of the future may be more convenient, accurate and faster for both voters and elections officials if researchers can improve the technology for voting via the Internet. Also a factor is whether elections officials can entice voters to use the technology and make it accessible to them. With interest increasing in voting reform and modernization since the 2000 presidential election, researchers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) have begun studies of the social and technical issues related to voting via the Internet.

Researchers developing emergency broadband prototype
Communication systems connected by wire and fiber can be partially or completely wiped out in seconds by an attack or a natural disaster. Cellular telephone systems are often limited to voice and are quickly saturated. Virginia Tech's Center for Wireless Telecommunications, the National Science Foundation, and SAIC have developed a protype wireless broadband communications network for rapid deployment in disaster response and recovery efforts.

Low power, highly reliable, wireless, infrared local area networks demonstrated
Penn State engineers have shown that broadband, wireless, indoor, local area communication networks that rely on non-line-of-sight infrared (IR) signal transmission can offer low error rates as well as safe, low - below one Watt - power levels. (2001-07-24)

Babies have a different way of hearing the world by listening to all frequencies simultaneously
The world apparently sounds very different to infants than it does to adults. Sometimes it's filled with a cacophony of sounds that makes it difficult for babies to distinguish a single sound because babies are generalist and hear all frequencies simultaneously so they can respond to unexpected sounds, reports a University of Washington researcher.
