Visit the sites of the creators of these new reactors and find another bonus: They require fuels only a fraction of the level of current reactors, which means nations who want nuclear power but claim not to want to divert the fuels for weapons production can be trusted when using these new type of reactors.

 The Best Idea Management Software of 2015

Idea management is a software category intended to help an organization's workers make sense out of complicated subjects. In the modern world of constantly interconnected Big Data and too-frequent workplace interruptions, I can't help but wonder why more organizations do not use such products.
We test and compare the top idea management software solutions to help your employees make sense of complicated subjects, giving them a structured way to record and share their thoughts.

To quote the author: "...this is no endorsement of Trump, just an interjection of reality."

And thought-provoking. And not just for Republicans...
And, my dear fellow Republicans, he's all your fault.

My wife and I agree enthusiatically: The new Bond movie is terrific. We were surprised when we came out of the theater to realize it was over two hours long -- it seemed to fly by! Highy recommended!
Here’s legendary film reviewer Cole Smithey with his take on “Spectre,” the latest James Bond flick. Don’t miss this in-depth review, with clips.

Classic urban winery: An industrial space with the barrels in the back and the tasting bar in the front; run by a couple on weekends, wines that win lots of awards. Specialty is Italian-style wines -- which taste better than those from Italy! Be sure to try the Barbera Rose - even if you don't like rose, this one is special. Their red Barbera from Sierra Foothills grapes is also terrific. Several excellent whites and quite a few more reds including the rarely seen Teraldigo, a pretty nice Pinot, and a darned fine and fruity Grenache as well. Whites include a pretty nice dry Reisling and a very good Sauvignon Blanc. Worth a visit, easy on-street parking, pleasant casual vibe.
