This should be a no brainer... Stop the federal mandate.

World's first fully digital radio transmitter built purely from microprocessor technology ... this is a BIG, BIG thing! ... "For the first time in history, a prototype radio has been created that is claimed to be completely digital, generating high-frequency radio waves purely through the use of integrated circuits and a set of patented algorithms without using conventional analog radio circuits in any way whatsoever. This breakthrough technology promises to vastly improve the wireless communications capabilities of everything from 5G mobile technology to the multitude devices aimed at supporting the Internet of Things (IoT).

The significance of this new technology cannot be overstated: Every aspect of radio frequency generation is said to be created using a string of digital bits, and nothing else. There are no analog circuits, no filters, no chokes, none of the traditional circuitry and components expected in a radio transmitter. Consisting of a mere handful of components, including a couple of integrated circuits, an antenna, and not much else, the transmitter – dubbed Pizzicato – promises to change the face of wireless transmission.

Created by Cambridge Consultants, the initial trials of the Pizzicato have been claimed to show that it has fully met all the expectations of its myriad performance requirements. But more than this, the Pizzicato has brought bulky radio circuits down to microprocessor levels, with the promise of even smaller, more efficient uses of the technology in future.

"Our first trial of the technology has created 14 simultaneous cellular base station signals," said Monty Barlow, director of wireless technology at Cambridge Consultants. "But it is the potential which is so exciting. Like mainstream microprocessing, a Pizzicato-based radio would directly benefit from Moore’s Law – shrinking in cost, size and power consumption with each new generation of silicon fabrication." ..."

+Alan Dacey  We'll see how it pans out.  I understand the "set of patented algorithms" is kind of sketchy sounding.  But hey, if the transmitters and receivers are compatible with what's currently in use.  I expect someone else will figure out a more open set. 

Meanwhile, I think we're still stuck with the same old patented technology for Electronic Larynx's...  Might not be as exciting as radio waves.

Corn as fuel always has been a bad idea... But government subsidiaries keep it alive. 
Corn was caught yellow-handed by researchers in a plot with other crops like soy to replace “millions of acres of grasslands.”

Had we spent that money expanding wind and solar and hybrid technologies, fuel would be much less expensive, simply because of the reduced demand. The Navy's fuel from seawater program makes way more sense than corn.

Even as a Linux user, I'm hard pressed to tell people what Desktop Environment is the best.  I like MATE 1st, and KDE comes in second. I like Linux Mint, and Ubuntu. - As with other aspects of life, I can only relate to them my experience, and what I find useful.  I also enjoyed the net install of Debian, but that's the direction that I'd send a new user.   

But I still have a hard time trying to get the concept of Open Source across to those that are so used to, and entrenched into the world of Proprietary Operating systems.  Even those that have used Firefox for years aren't even aware of it's history, or the history of Open Source and the varying licences.

Yeah that whole choice thing can really confuse people when it comes to window managers/desktop environments. I prefer openbox, fluxbox, lxde, or xfce for speed and low resource usage. I tend to use xfce the most often.

I usually tell people to try out different ones to see what works best for them.

Is it me, or are the shades of purple a bit to close...  
In any event. It's kind of nice to look a chart and know when the version of my OS will have support, and when the next one will be coming out. 
Unlike that fungly OS from Redmond...
LTS is an abbreviation for “Long Term Support”. We produce a new Ubuntu Desktop and Ubuntu Server release every six months [diagram below]. That means you'll always have the latest and greatest applications that the open source world has to offer. Ubuntu is designed with security in mind.

Fun place to visit. Tasty, Tasty Pizza. The Meatball appetizer was superb. Looked like they had a few options to choose from, if you were a vegetarian too. I can't comment on the Wine or other Spirits, as we don't drink. But it would be nice if they had some top shelf Ginger Ale, like Vernors, or IBC Root Beers.

Cleveland Clinic Discount. - If you have to go to the Cleveland Clinic nearby, you should ask about it, I over heard the friendly and polite, daytime front desk clerk talking to someone about it. A good thing, if you or a family member have to go to the clinic. - I found the Hotel to my liking when I stayed there. I would stay again, and highly recommend it.

Their burgers and other food are tasty, but they seem to be a little pricey. Could be due to the fact that they have Monogrammed Plastic Cups, Napkins, etc, etc... I could care less If their plastic ware has their name on it. Staff friendly also. Half Price Burger Wednesdays are a good time to go check them out.

I've had to visit Dr Francis a couple of times due to my need of tooth extractions. Both times he personally called me the evening of my oral surgery to check up on me. A nice personal touch. :) Granted loosing teeth isn't my favorite occupation, but he does a great job of letting you know of what your other options are if you're missing / loosing teeth that you feel you need to replace. His whole staff was friendly and courteous.
