Mark Wahlberg is set to reteam with Lone Survivor director Peter Berg for somewhat lighter fare. Earlier this year Wahlberg told us that he was circling The Six Billion Dollar Man, an adaptation of the 1970s TV series The Six Million Dollar Man, which starred Lee Majors as Steve Austin, a test pilot who is outfitted with bionic limbs, implants, and a unique sound effect to become a super-powered secret agent. Inflation being what it is, six million isn't going to cut it today for a bionic superpowers. It's going to cost at least six billion.
In the 1970s, the utterly exorbitant $6 million seemed about the right cost to create a bionic man.note You might say it cost an arm and a leg.

Though the casting of Wahlberg is just a rumor, the idea of Marky Mark playing a cyborg makes plenty of sense at the moment, considering the worldwide box office success of Transformers 4. So far, the movie has banked more than $500 million, and the natural progression would be for us to find out what happens when Cade Yeager becomes part-Autobot.
The personnel system is ineffective because it fills jobs with unqualified people, and inefficient because it needlessly causes massive personnel turnover that reduces the overall level of expertise in the force. It can cost millions of dollars to train each new accession to even a basic level of proficiency, but the return on that investment is often poor. In an era of renewed great power competition and a ballooning national debt, neither the Department of Defense nor the nation can afford the status quo.
The Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine -- an alliance of the military services, the Veterans Administration, the NationalInstitutes of Health and around 250 doctors and researchers at 30universities and hospitals -- formed in early 2007 with $50 million a year in government and private funding.
