Star Trek USB Communicator - set phasers to nerdgasm


stcommunicator.jpg

As I wrote the other day the new Star Trek Movie will probably disappoint a lot of Trekkies because of its fast pace and cool special effects, but I’m pretty sure this Star Trek USB Communicator could give them some relief.

The Star Trek Communicator from Dream Cheeky is a VoIP/Skype phone with 21 original sound effects. It has velcro on the back, so you can mount it where everyone can see it. With a simple flick of the wrist you are ready to receive any incoming signals from green female space slaves to your Star Wars-loving friends, who doesn’t have anything remotely as cool as this.

Personally I’m more of a Star Trek The Next Generation and beyond fan, so I’m still waiting for that Starfleet insignia badge. I just have to touch it and it instantly knows who I want to communicate with.

Studies: Coffee May Lower Alzheimer's Risk

Researchers Think Caffeine May Reduce Inflammation in the Brain, Preventing Memory Loss

    Can coffee prevent Alzheimer's disease? Dr. Jennifer Ashton talks to Maggie Rodriguez about how your morning cup of joe could help prevent memory loss.

    (CBS)  Last updated 10:18 a.m. ET. 

    Two new studies have found that your morning cup of coffee might help treat or even prevent memory loss. Dr. Jennifer Ashtonstopped by "The Early Show" to discuss these latest findings. 

    As Dr. Ashton explained, the studies were done on mice. 

    "Researchers gave the equivalent of 500 milligrams of caffeine per day to little lab mice, who have been induced to have the same kind of memory changes we see in Alzheimer's disease, and they found a very positive effect on their memory and thinking actions over a two-month period. So put another one in the column of a good effect of caffeine," she explained. 

    The human equivalent (how much a human being would have to drink to have a similar effect) would be about five medium-sized cups of coffee. 

    "It looks like a lot, but it's important to realize that now, when we go to a deli or a Starbucks, this could actually be just the equivalent of 2 1/2 large or Grande cups of coffee a day. While it's a little bit more than most people have in the morning, it's actually not such an excessive amount," she said. 

    Asked how quickly this effect was detected in these mice and how long it lasted, Ashton said, "They saw it over a two-month time period, and they're still following them. It's not yet known whether the changes appear to be permanent or not. 

    "Their thinking is that actually the caffeine worked by decreasing the inflammation in the brain, cuts down on the buildup of protein we see in the brain of people with Alzheimer's disease." 

    The studies appeared in the July 5 online edition of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease

    Ashton said the findings are very encouraging. "People are affected by Alzheimer's. While it's important to remember that caffeine is a drug, this is something that's readily accessible in our environment practically. It's in people's day-to-day, and something that can have an effect like this is very important and very encouraging." 

    Ashton notes that some caution is advised. Caffeine is a drug, and can be associated with increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, jitteriness, palpitations and dehydration. 

    "For people who have irregular heart beats, hypertension, women who are pregnant or those who are sensitive to the effects of caffeine, coffee, tea or soda should be consumed in moderation." 

    These people should also discuss caffeine consumption with their health care provider. 

    Asked if she'd encourage people to drink more coffee, Ashton said, "It's important to see the coffee didn't have a healing effect but more of a therapeutic effect. More studies are on the way."
