Gait recognition is new security tool

Scientists in India say they have developed biometric gait
recognition software that could improve remote security
surveillance. Biometrics is commonly associated with retinal
scans, iris recognition and DNA databases but the researchers
said their software can identify suspects by their
characteristic gait. C. Nandini of the Vidya Vikas Institute
of Engineering & Technology and C. N. Ravi Kumar of the S.J.
College of Engineering in Mysore, India, said that viewed from
the side, every person has a unique gait that makes them
easily recognizable. The researchers said gait recognition has
a significant advantage over such well-known biometrics as
fingerprinting and iris scanning in that it is entirely
unobtrusive and can be used to identify an individual at a
considerable distance from a restricted security area. The
research is reported in the inaugural issue of The International
Journal of Biometrics.

GLAST lifts off and begins orbiting Earth

The U.S. space agency's Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope,
or GLAST, lifted off at 12:05 p.m. EDT Wednesday and went into
orbit around the Earth. The National Aeronautics and Space
Administration satellite separated from its Delta II launch
rocket at 1:20 p.m. EDT and 12 minutes later both of GLAST's
solar arrays were deployed about 300 miles above the Earth.
"The entire GLAST team is elated the observatory is now on-
orbit and all systems continue to operate as planned," said
GLAST Program Manager Kevin Grady of NASA's Goddard Space
Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. NASA's newest space telescope,
launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, will begin
transmitting initial instrument data within the next month,
officials said. "After a 60-day checkout and initial
calibration period, we'll begin science operations," said
Steve Ritz, GLAST project scientist. "GLAST soon will be
telling scientists about many new objects to study, and this
information will be available on the Internet for the world
to see." The GLAST mission is an astrophysics and particle
physics partnership, developed with the U.S. Department of
Energy, along with contributions from academic institutions
and partners in France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Sweden and
the United States.

Many viewers not ready for digital TV

The U.S. Government Accountability Office said millions of
unprepared households could lose TV service after the transition
to digital broadcasting. A report the office released Tuesday
said nearly half of U.S. households that could lose service
in the change are still unprepared for the transition, The
Washington Post said. Broadcasters are to stop using
traditional analog signals Feb. 17 and to switch entirely
to digital broadcasting, meaning televisions that rely on
analog signals for service will no longer work. The Post said
that to continue watching television after the transition to
digital, viewers with analog televisions need to buy converter
boxes, purchase a digital television or subscribe to cable or
satellite service.
