The new forensic technique is called DNA phenotyping.It relies on DNA, found for instance in a drop of blood, to create a simulated face based upon genetic markers.But the use of DNA to determine physical traits “completely dissolves that firm boundary,” she said.No doubt, there’s still a long way to go for DNA phenotyping to become standard procedure in criminal investigations.
A tower in Dubai that opens today has earned the title of world’s tallest building with a height of 2,717 feet (828 meters). Actually, it grabbed that title during construction back in July 2007 when it passed Taipei 101, which stands 500 meters tall. Until its official opening today, the building’s exact height was a closely held secret known by only a few people. The tower, which had been known as the Burj Dubai, was renamed the Burj Khalifa, in honor of Sheik Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the president of the neighboring emirate Abu Dhabi. Speaking of the acrophobia inducing elevator, it travels at speeds roughly 40 miles per hour (65 kilometers per hour) and reaches the observation deck in about 2 minutes. Once at the top, visitors can enjoy temperatures that are nearly 15 degrees cooler than at the building’s base. Dubai is built in the middle of the desert, so to withstand the UAE’s 120-degree blistering summer heat the tower is covered with 24,348 cladding panels. Many skyscrapers are built to bend with the wind—the Burj, which will be exposed to strong desert winds, more than others.
The building’s architects, Chicago-based Skidmore, Owings, and Merril, speculated last week that someone might try to steal the thunder from the big announcement by measuring the building’s shadow to figure out its height. According to lead architect George Efstathiou, “the building is tuned to sway slowly so your middle ear doesn’t pick it up,” Efstathiou explained.
“They tune it just like a musical instrument so that the harmonics of the building don’t coincide with the harmonics caused by the wind…. So if you want in, you better hurry; 90 percent of the 900 residences (not including the soon-to-open Giorgio Armani-designed hotel) have been sold.
Parabon’s commercial DNA phenotyping service, known as Snapshot, uses algorithms based loosely on Shirver’s.
Scientists at Parabon constructed the first-ever publicly released DNA-generated mug shot, though unfortunately the killer wasn’t ever caught.
Appearing as it did in an age of unparalleled relic-mongering and forgery and, if genuine, lacking documentation of its whereabouts for 1,300 years, the Shroud would certainly have long ago been consigned to the ranks of spurious relics (along with several other shrouds with similar claims) were it not for the extraordinary image it bears.
