British "space shuttle"; NASA Hearts Virgin Galactic...

This is really cool ? Tech Gear created a ?space shuttle? out of an old car. It?s looks and proposed functions are similar to the NASA space shuttle system ? but obviously, far reduced in both categories. Please, for the love of the ultimate power of your choice ? don?t try this at home! Happy

Also ? NASA and Virgin Galactic (Sir Richard Branson?s new spaceline company) have an agreement ?to explore the potential for collaborations on the development of space suits, heat shields for spaceships, hybrid rocket motors and hypersonic vehicles capable of traveling five or more times the speed of sound.

The memorandum is only a framework to explore potential collaborations. It does not include training of NASA astronauts, an agreement to buy seats on a Virgin Galactic flight, or provision of technical advice by NASA to Virgin Galactic. ?

i say!

you know... my mouse is "made in china", my keyboard is "made in china", my rechargeable batteries are "made in china"... probably my joypad and joystick are made in china too (same trademark as my mouse and keyboard), the only thing i'm sure that is brazilian, is my cell phone... at least it was assembled here!

ok, yeah, you had me
is there anything that is really "made in china"?
they give probably give 90% of the money to a place elsewhere, in North America... hehe

today the brazilian main tv channel (which more than 50% of national spectators watching in the 5th biggest and 5th most populous country)
broadcasted a china documentary, and they said 120 million chinese live(s) in caves!
in a country with enough technology to send a man to space...
they should focus their technology somewhere else Silly

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
