Air Force Seeks Neuroweapons To Enhance US Airmenís Minds and Confuse Foes
By Rebecca Boyle | POPSCI.com
Intelligent advanced aircraft is one thing, but if the Air Force wants to be in prime warfighting condition, its pilots had better come with advanced weaponry, too. Thatís why the Air Force wants neuroweapons that can enhance airmenís performance, while degrading the mental states of their foes.

The Air Force Research Laboratoryís 711th Human Performance Wing just updated a call for proposals that examine ďAdvances in Bioscience for Airmen Performance,Ē according to Wiredís Danger Room. The initial announcement came out last November, but no one has yet come up with new stimulants that help airmen focus, or models that fuse multiple human senses together to better perceive threats.
These are some of the goals in the Air Forceís broad agency announcement, which generally seeks ďradically new military capabilities that improve warfighter performance and combat effectiveness.Ē The program is worth $49 million.
In typical military fashion, the announcement is lawyered-up with words that tend to obfuscate the message, which is actually pretty bizarre.
Essentially, the Air Force seeks technologies that can read airmenís minds and then manipulate them: ďto anticipate, find, fix, track, identify, and characterize human intent and physiological status anywhere and at anytime.Ē
The announcement also seeks applied biotechnology that could, for instance, develop special protein biomarkers that indicate an airmanís mission readiness, and gene expression methods that could improve that readiness. They even want technologies that can modulate an airmanís emotional state ó it can include mind-altering drugs or biochemical pathway techniques. This works on the flip side, too: ďConversely, the chemical pathway area could include methods to degrade enemy performance and artificially overwhelm enemy cognitive capabilities,Ē the announcement says.
So the Air Force wants souped-up airmen and a way to fry foesí minds, as Danger Room puts it.
Proposals will be accepted through September 2014, so get cracking, neuroscientists. The Air Force needs you.

North Vancouver schools get first gender-neutral washroom
In a first for North Vancouver schools, Seycove secondary has opened a gender-neutral washroom.
The move is a step in the right direction and recognition that not every student feels welcome in the binary male- or female-designated washrooms, according to Brian Wilson, president of Seycove‚Äôs Queer Straight Alliance Club, which lobbied the school administration for the washroom.

Newly-Completed Fukushima 'Containment' Wall Already 'Slightly Leaning'
Just weeks after re-starting the building of a giant ice-wall to contain groundwater leaking from the Fukushima nuclear plant, TEPCO has been forced to admit that a 780-meter protective wall built alongside the crippled power station (completed only last month and designed to prevent contaminated groundwater from seeping into the sea) is already "slightly leaning." While this sounds a lot ...
