SEGMENT 1: 10 pm - 11 pm / 7 pm - 8 pm Pacific
PETER WOOLFORD - Math wars: Debate sparks anti-pi day -
Tau Day, in honour of the constant some say should replace pi, is being celebrated by those who agree with US mathematicians Bob Palais and Michael Hartl. The two argue that tau, twice as large as pi at approximately 6.28, makes many calculations easier to perform. In The Tau Manifesto, Hartl says that although pi is well- defined, it's "a confusing and unnatural choice for the circle constant...Pi is half of something. It's the something that is fundamental." Whereas pi defines a circle as the ratio between circumference and diameter, tau defines a circle in terms of its circumference and radius. Hartl and Palais note that tau shows up in several major mathematical equations - an observation, they say, that isn't simply a coincidence, but rather justifies adopting a new constant. Supporters have taken the concept one step further by declaring June 28 Tau Day, meant to rival the more familiar tradition of Pi Day, held on March 14 each year. Patrick Speissegger, associate professor at McMaster and Canada Research Chair in Model Theory, doesn't buy into the idea. "It's not a question of right or wrong, but a matter of opinion," says Speissegger. "Philosophically speaking, changing the constant from pi to tau makes no difference." Except perhaps on the issue of practicality. - www.genesisgrid.co.uk

WAYNE MORIN JR - The Crimes at Napa State Hospital -
You would think that when people are placed in the care and custody of medical personnel at State mental facilities that the patients would be cared for, protected and given the appropriate treatments but according to former patient, Wayne Morin, Jr., such is not the case at the Napa State Hospital in Napa, California. Criminal offences including physical assault, sexual assault including rape and other serious crimes, added to the illegal trafficking of drugs, prostitution, loan sharking and the black-market selling of alcohol and other products not found on the hospital grounds seem to be the order of the day at Napa State Hospital. Wayne Morin, Jr was first admitted to Napa State Hospital was when he was 12 years old, in 1971. He has had 115 admissions at Napa State Hospital (NSH) since that time, but all were civil commitments. Wayne explains that his mother, brother, and sister have all sat around and used marijuana together with his psyche-tech on a weekend pass. - www.waynemorinjr.com

A really dumb situation known "Smart Meters" are on their way to the side of your home and office. The radiation from the microwave transmitter that communicates with other meters and a tower is 1,000 more time powerful than a cell phone that spreads out over a 100 foot diameter. A solution to this problem is now available from Tri-Vortex Technology. - www.trivortex.com
