Des chercheurs ont identifié le gène donnant les signaux de faim
Des chercheurs fribourgeois et français ont identifié le gène responsable de la diffusion des signaux de faim avant les repas. C'est une base prometteuse pour mettre au point des thérapies contre le surpoids ou l'alcoolisme.

Join us next February to hear talks about the Web (Stephanie Hannon, Pierre Chappaz, Sampo Karjalainen of Habbo Hotel, Lee Bryant, Colin Henderson or Daniel Kaplan), ubiquitous computing and the Internet of Things (Adam Greenfield, Anne Galloway, Daniela Cerqui, Julian Bleecker, Frédéric Kaplan), mobile technologies (Nathan Eagle, Jan Chipchase), interactive arts and design (Jan-Christoph Zoels, Régine Débatty, Christophe Guignard), entrepreneurship (Bernino Lind), Fair Economy (Paola Ghillani), Ethics (Beth Krasna), and many more topics like education, religion, the digital divide or technological overload.
The program is not yet complete - we are still looking for 8-10 speakers, and waiting for the answer of the likes of Doc Searls and Vinton Cerf (help welcome if you know some of these guys) - so don’t forget to check regularly the speakers list.
This year, the conference will also be enhanced by a special event that will be a bridge between creativity and pragmatism, gathering individuals of various backgrounds to work freely on a specific topic: “Digital fragility“. Several interactive artifacts will be built on site, turning LIFT into a both intellectual and physical experience.
If you register before December 31, 2006 you get an early bird price of only 295CHF (around 185 euros), 195CHF for students. That will be enough to get you access to 30+ presentations, two warm lunches, pre-conference drinks, post-conference party, countless amazing ideas and people!

Some errors are still visible, mainly on Explorer/PC.
I am trying to sort out some things, such as the date format for the preview on the frontpage and catgories to be displayed in different pages but WordPress can be a pain sometimes...
I'am looking forward for your comments and tips ;)

A senior US state department official has said that the US has shown 'arrogance and stupidity' in Iraq."
Alberto Fernandez made the remarks during an interview with Arabic television station al-Jazeera.
The state department says Mr Fernandez was quoted incorrectly - but BBC Arabic language experts say Mr Fernandez did indeed use the words.

In an effort to promote their D80 SLR, Nikon handed out some free D80’s to some high volume Flickr users who had caught their eye. The catch? Put the camera through it’s paces and let us use the results to promote the model with images taken by real world users and not professional studio photographers.
The results are available here,
Also found some great fishing photos.
