As you might have guessed I love staying on top of current events, especially as it relates to politics, the economy and just about anything not related to Justin Bieber or Dancing with the Stars.

Very interesting outlook from the man behind TED:
There are some scary smart people in this world and a team of those scary smart people has figured out how to zap female mosquitoes, the only ones that carry malaria, out of the sky with a laser. Oh, and they've also figured out a better way to deliver vaccines to hostile environments.
