Pancake Perfection
The Scotsman | Submitted by: LudditeAndroid
"The pancake, weighing 50g, should be flipped into the air at a speed of 10 miles per hour, ensuring that it will take less than 0.5 of a second to reach the top of its trajectory. At this point the pancake should have rotated 90 degrees at a rate of 0.55 revs per second. It then takes a further 0.45 seconds to make it back down to the pan, rotating a further 90 degrees on the way, making a total airtime of just nine-tenths of a second."

Seattle Times | Submitted by: Soylent
"A Web site that gives personal information on hundreds of police officers and is already the subject of a lawsuit pitting the First Amendment against personal privacy now is the target of legislation aimed at shutting it down. The bill, which passed out of the state Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, would allow a judge to shut down any source that sells, lists or distributes the home phone numbers, home addresses, birthdates or Social Security numbers of police officers or court employees and shows 'an intent to harm or intimidate.'"
