And now it is time for some shameless self promotion. My wife, +Suzanne Brodine, is writing her second novel. She is releasing it as she writes it as a serial on her website using her nom de plume. I would consider it a Sci-Fi Action Novel. You can read it at her website as she releases chapters: http://susanamund.com/original-works/barghest/

Here's a little blurb if you want to know more:
Earth has had a bloody, disastrous first contact with alien life which they barely managed to survive. Humanity united under a single government, the Sol Confederation, and has spent a century fighting across star systems in a war that appears to have no purpose other than to wipe out humanity.

In 2148, Sergeant Clara Maker is more than halfway through her obligatory two years of service in the military when she becomes involved in a new wave of aggression in the war. She wants nothing more than to finish her duty tour and return to Earth, but whether she wants it or not, a career as a soldier may not be something she can escape. Not with her life intact.

Congress and the Sol Coalition have acknowledged that the war cannot be won without taking drastic measures. To save their species, they must create a new one.

Faster and stronger, bred for war, genetically engineer soldiers have been bred to fight humanity's enemy. The secret research project could give Clara Maker what she desires most - a life without war. Or, it could rip apart the fragile unity Earth developed against a common enemy.

I was quoted in an Article by +Nebraska Public Power District about Demand waiver. Starts on page 11.
Now, besides their beloved Cornhuskers, there are a. few things Nebraskans take pride in. One such thing is the. patchwork squares of amber, green and gold cropland seen. high in the sky as the world passes by airplane over this. unique flyover state. “Nebraska has the most irrigated land in the ...

Happy Birthday Volta!  Thanks for helping create an entire industry that employs me!
 
Happy 270th birthday to Alessandro Volta! Volta was credited with inventing the first electrical battery in 1799, an IEEE Milestone that paved the way for the field of electromagnetism and the development of electrical equipment.

Yea, I like this one because it packs down so nicely and they have recorded temps around 260 C in around 5 minutes. I've been tempted to get one of those power pots also, which I think would be neat to go with it.

I think getting this, a power pot and my coolest cooler would be a neat camping combo.

This was a good experience when I did it long ago.  If you know a high school age kid, you should encourage them to attend.

Science. It works.
Twisting things up. T2 wire. In an effort to combat the twists and turns of Mother Nature, Dawson PPD builds some of its power lines using a special wire called T-2. “This wire is heavier, larger and more durable than wire we have built with in the past,” said Operations Manager Jeremy Kaiser.
