From the article: "Effective data governance requires planning and resources that are integrated with the parent program's management right from the start. Hoping that important data related decisions related to privacy, ownership, commercialization, sharing, interoperability, and public access will somehow “evolve” without an appropriate level of oversight and control is a recipe for inefficiency at best and political infighting and failure at worst."

The comments attached to the original share on Google+ of this article are fun to read.
#California Gov. #JerryBrown accused President Donald #Trump of hurting American #automanufacturers by advocating for fewer restrictions on mass polluters in the US. Brown indicated that the Trump administration’s effort to boost US coal producers and weaken fuel-economy standards will ultimately help countries like #China, where businesses are going all-in on #electricvehicles and other clean-energy products. Trump is 'building the Chinese #autoindustry' while destroying America’s own, according to Brown.

Scientists Just Created a Magnetic Field That Takes Us Closer Than Ever Before to Harnessing Nuclear Fusion

'..."One way to produce fusion power is to confine plasma — a sea of charged particles — in a large ring called a tokamak in order to extract energy from it," said lead researcher Shojiro Takeyama in a press release. The magnetic field that a tokamak would require is "tantalizingly similar to what our device can produce," he said. To generate the magnetic field, the UTokyo researchers built a sophisticated device capable of electromagnetic flux-compression (EMFC), a method of magnetic field generation well-suited for indoor operations. They describe the work in a new paper published Monday in the Review of Scientific Instruments....'
