California Governor Arnold Schwarzenneger's Veto - of a bill designed to ensure local control of a California public television broadcast license -  was the latest development in a long running struggle between a local entity and Texas based religious broadcaster Daystar, for Orange County's sole public television station.

As the Orange County Register reported on Sunday, October 1, 2006:

The legislation, AB523, would have paved the path for the station to be resold to its own foundation rather than the highest bidder. That bidder --
DayStar Television, a Texas-based televangelist network -- is currently suing the Coast Community College District for not accepting its previous offers.

The struggle for control of KOCE-TV is only the latest in a series of pitched battles fought over the past decade as religious broadcasters have begun to pick up broadcast licenses in bands previously controled by local and public broadcasting entitities.

Now days it is common to fight for what is necessary and people have no control over such things. But sometimes it is essential to raise voice so as to attain something and thanks for the news shared here and keep on posting such useful things in future.

The development struggle between a local entity and Texas based religious broadcaster Daystar, for Orange County's sole public television station seems to be very serious matter and thanks for sharing the information about the same.

The struggles for many such things are noticed in many places and I really like to know all the reasons b behind such struggle. Many television channels have published these types of things and such religious struggles will surely ruin our world I think.

Good on then Gov Schwarzenneger for putting his foot down against this abuses. Unfortunately if this happened today, the outcome would probably be different. - John from Dog Training Cheyenne.

Scientists have developed the world's first living robots that can reproduce. These robots, with their unprecedented ability to reproduce, could be the answer to many questions science is trying to solve, including cancer and aging. The world's first living robots, 'xenobots', which were created from the stem cells of the African clawed frog Xenopus laevis Tufts University and designed by computers, were first introduced to the world in 2020. At that time, scientists; He reported that these organisms were able to self-heal and survive for weeks without food. Now, experts from the University of Vermont, Tufts University, and Harvard University's Wyss Institute have discovered that drop-like xenobots have an unusual new reproductive capacity. According Tufts University to the new discovery, the first living robots can reproduce by copying themselves. In a press release, the scientists who developed the organism stated that xenobots were able to create 'baby' organisms by bringing hundreds of single cells together in their Tufts University mouths. "With the right design, they can replicate themselves," said Josh Bongard, a computer science professor and robotics expert at the University of Vermont, who led the research. Douglas Blackiston, a senior scientist at Tufts University and the Wyss Institute, also believed that humanity has long figured Harvard University out all possible ways to reproduce and reproduce; however, he noted that this new development is unlike anything seen before. "These cells have the genome of a frog, but when they're gone from being tadpoles, they use their collective intelligence, a Harvard University plasticity, to do something surprising," said Michael Levin, a biology professor and director of the Tufts University Allen Discovery Center, who said it was pretty "profound." conveyed in the form. The idea of a self-reproducing robot sounds pretty scary when you first hear it; but Harvard University apparently the scientists who were part of the study are perfectly comfortable with it. Stating that they are working to understand the replication feature, Bongard said, "The world and technologies are changing rapidly. It's important for Discovery Center society as a whole to study and understand how this will work," he said, noting that an understanding of this type of self-replicating biotechnology could have benefits in many practical uses, including regenerative medicine. He continued, "After all, Discovery Center this is regenerative medicine, if we know how to get cells to do what we want them to do; traumatic injury, birth defects, cancer and aging can be the solution," Bongard continued and noted that learning this could be possible thanks to xenobots.
