A theoretical physicist has created a system he says could protect buildings and other structures from terrorist assaults by reducing the physical force of impacts by up to 95 percent.
The theory has caused a buzz in scientific circles following the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and in light of the continued threats against U.S. targets.

After September 11, India-baiters in cyber-space lay low for a while. However, they are back with a bang. The latest victims include bhartiyahotels.com, 123medicineindia.com, kamalkapoor.com, delhimarket.com and jyotishvani.com.
Security experts have said that last week's hack of the IBM 4758 cryptographic co-processor is a death blow for single Data Encryption Standard (DES) encryption.
Although the hack devised by Cambridge computing students Michael Bond and Richard Clayton does not attack the IBM 4758 machine itself, rather the Common Cryptographic Architecture (CCA) API used by the device, it reveals an inherent weakness in the security system.
