After months of competition, 26-year-old Zach Anner was one of two finalists in Friday night's final episode of the program called 'Your Own Show' on Oprah Winfrey's network. Anner, who now lives in Texas and has cerebral palsy, has said it is his dream to host a travel show for people who never thought they could travel.

In the end, Oprah decided that Zach and Christina Kuzmic will both get their own shows!

"I just got my own show from Oprah Winfrey. I don't normally do back-flips, but I think I could do them," said Anner.

Winfrey says just being around Zach makes you want to be a better person.

"A slide was opened to expose them to the vacuum and the cold. Some were also subjected to the Sun's UV rays which are 1,000 times stronger in space than on Earth and, incredibly, survived for the return trip. They continued to breed successfully"

What could possibly go wrong with this

They are the toughest animals on the planet - and now scientists have discovered that they can even survive in space.
The tiny creatures, known as tardigrades or water bears, are certainly strange-looking with their eight chubby legs, little claws and probing heads.


Tardigrades or 'water bears' are the toughest creatures on the planet

In fact, they can be completely dried out for years - and then spring back to life as if nothing had happened.'

Dr Jonsson believes that even if they suffered DNA damage, the little water bears could somehow repair it. The next challenge is to try to understand the creatures' 'exceptional tolerance' to extreme conditions, he said. It could help scientists learn how to treat cancer.
'All knowledge involving the repair of genetic damage is central to the field of medicine,' Dr Jonsson said.

We have arrived at the future where our phones can now be our computers, though judging from the size of that “phone” its somewhat too large and ugly

There’s more than enough glitz and smartphone glamour at Mobile World Congress to keep me writing previews well into next week, but when I dropped in at the ARM stand, it was something a little unusual that drew my attention.

On the edge of a narrow bench sat a rattly-looking development unit – the kind of device phone and chip makers use to test hardware before squeezing it into the shiny, sleek chassis I’ve seen so many times over the past three days. But that’s not the interesting part: ARM was using it to demonstrate the benefits of multicore mobile processors, the sort so many of the new devices this year are set to employ.

The Texas Intruments OMAP 4 chip inside it is based on ARM’s Cortex-A9 architecture and in the video below it’s shown running Android 2.3 and Ubunutu 10.04 simultaneously.

That’s interesting from a technical point of view, you might think, but a little gimmicky right? Well, it’s closer to reality than you might think. The Motorola Atrix smartphone, launched to great fanfare at CES in January, boasts a very similar feature. Drop this in the rear of its ‘laptop’ dock and control switches to the larger screen displaying a desktop environment, allowing you to use the power of the phone just like a notebook. Motorola also has a desktop dock for the Atrix which allows you to connect it to a monitor, keyboard and mouse.

The idea of offering celery as a Valentine's Day gift to your loved one instead of chocolate might send the wrong message, but scientists working to improve the rose genome could make the low-calorie stem a popular Feb. 14 present after all.

It turns out that one particular gene from celery — mannitol dehydrogenase — greatly improves the life and quality of rose petals when that gene is spliced into the rose genome. So in an effort to help you get more value from your Valentine's Day gifts, North Carolina State horticultural scientists Dr. John Dole and Dr. John Williamson are leading an effort to insert that gene into roses to create a new superflower less prone to wilt and more resistant to disease, according to

Over the years, the township and the strip club have squabbled over whether the club was a prostitution front, whether it was too close to the bowling alley, even how close its strippers could get to clients.

To each side, the fight — one of the longest and most bizarre legal dramas in New Jersey — has assumed a bigger question of identity, pitting the idea of free enterprise against a community’s morality.

"All we really want is to be left alone," said Kevin Hickey, the club’s owner. "I just want the right to run my business."

Daniel Antonelli, a Union Township attorney, argues the club violates a 1995 state law banning sexually oriented business from 1,000 feet of a residential area.

All-nude strip club, Hott 22, wins 14-year-long court battle against Union Township
