Rejected New Submission

Baja Cantina
Google Maps Location: 7166 Carmel Valley Road, Carmel, CA
36.534055, -121.850530

Baja Cantina has been a local gathering spot for decades.  It is completely unique in it's character and decor.  There are more car and movie related memoribilia than most auto related museums would carry.  There is more to see here than at most portals plus the food is great!

There are also minimal portals in this area.

Microsoft, Google, Facebook and now Yahoo have distanced themselves from ALEC.  Amazing what some public pressure will do.

Good for Google they finally dumped ALEC for their climate change denial. Surprised it took so long.
ETOM Quote of the Day:
"The company (Google) has a very strong view that we should make decisions in politics based on facts — what a shock. And the facts of climate change are not in question anymore. Everyone understands climate change is occurring and the people who oppose it are really hurting our children and our grandchildren and making the world a much worse place. And so we should not be aligned with such people — they're just literally lying."
- Eric Schmidt, executive chairman at Google, commenting on Google leaving ALEC

Excellent article by +vivek wadhwa on solar energy and abundance. 

However I think he misses the mark slightly.  "By 2020, solar energy will be price-competitive with energy generated from fossil fuels on an unsubsidized basis in most parts of the world.  Within the next decade, it will cost a fraction of what fossil fuel-based alternatives do." 

I know in many if not most "3rd" world countries solar is already less expensive then current fossil fuel energy costs.  In fact in many regions of Central America solar is almost 20% - 30% less on a cost per watt basis than traditional grid tied energy sources.  Many of these existing sources of energy are diesel type generation so the carbon cost is also considerably less.

Google Requests FCC Permission to Test Wireless Internet
Google wants to experiment with internet delivery via its Titan drones. Last week, Google requested FCC permission to use two blocks of frequencies for a 6-month test period over New Mexico east of Albuquerque.
