The people in background

Pentti_linkola Joseph Zeman, 73, commonly known as the Pigeon Man of Lincoln Square

Pentti Linkola is a radical Finnish environmentalist who has often been accused of ecofascism. He lives a materially very simple life and works as a professional fisherman.

Linkola is a misanthropist who blames humans for the destruction of the environment and he has promoted ideas such as genocide for saving the environment and to keep the population in control. He strongly promotes deindustrialization. His ideal of society is a totalitarian dictatorship ruled by a small educated elite, where the majority of the population has the living standards of the Middle Ages, where consumption is limited only to renewable resources, and where "defective" people are killed

Danny Lloyd played Danny ("Doc") Torrance in Kubrick's Shining. He acted in only one other film, The Autobiography of G. Gordon Liddy, and is now a professor for Biology in a collage in Kentucky. (Also, four other bit actresses from the film would never appear in another movie after The Shining)

And in the early Nineties, a man called Alan Conway went about London telling people he was Stanley Kubrick

HGP

Gene_dna Completed in 2003, the The Human Genome Project was a 13-year project coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health.

Project goals were to

• identify all the approximately 20,000-25,000 genes in human DNA,
• determine the sequences of the 3 billion chemical base pairs that make up human DNA,
• store this information in databases,
• improve tools for data analysis,
• transfer related technologies to the private sector, and
• address the ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI) that may arise from the project.

Though the HGP is finished, analyses of the data will continue for many years...
