Barnum, Fellow American Institute of Architects  "The building was designed to have a fully loaded 707 crash into it. . . . I believe that the building probably could sustain multiple impacts of jetliners because this structure is like the mosquito netting on your screen door." -- Frank A.

 How Would You Like A Graduate Degree For $100? Sebastian Thrun. Photo: Eric Millette for Forbes.Ask Sebastian Thrun what makes him tick, and the inventor andGoogle Fellow ­offers up three favorite themes: big open problems, a desire to help people and “disrespect for authority.” Thrun, 45, has been aiming high—and annoying the old guard—for nearly two decades. As a college student in Germany he dashed off to conferences to present major papers on machine learning without getting his professor’s permission. Thrun made the cover of FORBES in 2006 with his talk of creating self-driving cars that could navigate traffic and follow directions without human guidance. As the founding head of Google’s advanced-research X Lab, Thrun helped turn those robocars into reality. After 200,000 miles of road tests his vehicles are safe…

The Associated Press: Far-right extremists testify in Breivik trialFar-right extremists testify in Breivik trial By JULIA GRONNEVET – 1 day ago  OSLO, Norway (AP) — A handful of Norwegian right-wing extremists testified Tuesday in self-confessed killer Anders Behring Breivik's defense, backing his claims that Norway is "at war" with Islam.
