Whisky for the Environment -- Whisky fuels lots of things--rebellions, country and western songs, and Shane MacGowan, to name just a few. Now it's going to power 9,000 homes in Scotland. More specifically, whisky byproducts are going to power the homes, in the distillery-rich region of Speyside, by helping to fuel a local biomass energy plant. "Waste products from around 16 of the area's 50 distilleries will be used at the site, including well-known brands such as Glenlivet, Chivas Regal, Macallan, and Famous Grouse," the Guardian reports.

Scientists Glimpse Images In Your Mind -- Reading another person's mind is impossible. But it is now possible to see what's going on in there visually, thanks to scientists at the University of California-Berkeley, who on Thursday announced they had managed to decode the brain signals of three individuals into watchable movies. YouTube movies, to be exact. The team of neuroscience researchers led by UC professor Jack Gallant accomplished the incredible feat using an MRI machine to record the brain signals of three subjects - three members of their research team, in fact - while the subjects watched movie trailers.
