Artificial Photosynthesis Advance Hailed As Major Breakthrough

"In what's being called a win-win for the environment and the production of renewable energy, researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California, Berkeley, have achieved a major breakthrough in artificial photosynthesis.

The scientists have created a system that can capture carbon dioxide emissions before they're released into the atmosphere and convert them into fuels, pharmaceuticals, plastics, and other valuable products."

That's just... ridiculous
New research suggests that looking to our body’s own ooey-gooey defenses can keep us healthy in unexpected ways.

It's not what you think...

Interestingly, increased spending has not been going into the pockets of the typical professor. Salaries of full-time faculty members are, on average, barely higher than they were in 1970

_ [...] a major factor driving increasing costs is the constant expansion of university administration. According to the Department of Education data, administrative positions at colleges and universities grew by 60 percent between 1993 and 2009, which Bloomberg reported was 10 times the rate of growth of tenured faculty positions._

So... Is there a need for so much more administrative structure? And why are those salaries so high, especially at exec levels, with numbers routinely reaching 7 figures?
It’s not because states have cut funding for higher education.

I wouldn't necessarily use that term +Cindy Sharp , but it certainly seems like there is a lot of abuse going on...

Unusually blunt statements, coming from a high ranking Ecuadoran diplomat. Refreshing...

If there is a country that is a threat in the Americas, it’s the United States, because it has permanently invaded countries, societies in Latin America. It has created coups d’état. It has invaded countries, such as Grenada, the Dominican Republican, Panama. And it promoted dictatorships

This is great news. If nothing else, there will finally be some competition for the AT&Ts, Verizons and Comcasts of this world....

In the U.S., Pichai announced Google’s plan to offer wireless service by licensing wireless networks from larger carriers as a mobile virtual network operator, or MVNO, to offer a service much like Virgin Mobile and MetroPCS.

Google is reportedly planning on supplementing its wireless phone service with Wi-Fi hotspots in areas where it offers Google Fiber. In what is shaping up to be a space race in Silicon Valley, Internet giant Facebook also has plans to offer Internet service through drones, as does SpaceX, according to CEO Elon Musk.
The atmospheric satellites will beam wireless Internet to areas without it, as well as to disaster-struck areas.

Also, he no longer cares about reelection, or about keeping the Senate or the House. When there is nothing (political) to lose...
The president's message at his cabinet meeting this morning wasn't subtle: he's ready to take more executive actions, whether Republicans like it or not.

Stumbled on this again last night. Funniest (and silliest) soccer story I've ever seen - Barbados vs. Grenada 1994

[...] when they realized they were probably not going to score against Grenada's massed defence, they turned round, and deliberately scored on their own goal to level the scores and take the game into penalties. Grenada, themselves not being stupid, realized what was going on, and then attempted to score an own goal themselves. However, the Barbados players started defending their opponents goal to prevent this.

In the last five minutes, spectators were treated to the incredible sight of both team's defending their opponents goal against attackers desperately trying to score an own goal and goalkeepers trying to throw the ball into their own net.

Vinyl grooves... It is so gratifying to see these pictures and read the explanations that go with them. One of the great mysteries of my life, finally resolved ;)
 
Vinyl Record Lovers Will Get This

Digital fans may shrug and go - Meh. But vinyl record lovers and collectors will see the flowing peaks and valleys representing sounds as reflections of art. The words "graceful" "ebullience" and "joy" will leap to the mind. Ah, vinyl. Those lush notes, those engulfing sounds, that deep warmth. Most assuredly not digital.

yep. I still like it, decades later... and lasers and control systems are so cheap now...  Sounds like a perfect project for an instructable or even a kickstarter...

when I have my workshop rebuilt and all my current partly finished and scheduled projects all worked out I'll ummm....
