Warning: strtotime() [function.strtotime]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Biosensors and Other Medical and Environmental Probes

Bacteria. Our invisible friends, our invisible enemies. Some aid our digestion, others destroy our poisons. Still other "bugs" make us sick. Living inside and outside our bodies, natural bacteria are a fact of life. We have learned to live with them and they with us. Soldiers and sailors in action worry that even more dangerous bacteria are lurking in the environment. These are "killer" bacteria—the kind used as weapons. Such biological warfare agents are viewed by many to be as threatening to human life as nuclear weapons.
