While I don't think that solar power alone will solve all energy needs, I do think that it's a vital step in the right direction. I'd still like to see more solar.
This was supposed to be solar’s moment. Residential panel installations in the U.S. grew 71 percent in 2015 as the falling cost of panels made the power they generate more competitive. In December, Congress unexpectedly extended a tax credit set to expire at the end of 2016. Panel buyers will get reimbursed for 30 percent of the cost of new solar panels through 2019 and at least 22 percent through 2021.

My Wife's machine is Mint MATE, and most likely will stay that for now, and perhaps into the future. If I do set her up with Ubuntu MATE, I'll put the same menu on the desktop as she has now. - She really doesn't mess around with it other than a few games online, and facebook.

Heh... Pre-salted rice? - Just kidding. - It would prove interesting if we could more grow food crops with salty water.
"The Qingdao research center will use gene sequencing to cultivate new strains of sea-rice that will yield more rice and grow with saline water."
China’s “father of hybrid rice” is planning to expand its production of sea-rice at a newly founded research center in Qingdao, a port city in Shandong Province.

As promised, I would like to repost the announcement of our Reglue Tin Cup Challenge. This is a two part fund raiser where you are (not quite) begged to set up a 10.00+ monthly donation. Of course, we will gladly accept any donation you care to make and we thank you sincerely for it. Then in two weeks, we will kick off our 2016 Indiegogo fundraiser. We've had an inordinarily tough 16 months so your help is sincerely needed. You can read about the specifics in the blog of helios posting below.

Please spread the word for us and if you can, come give us a hand. Your hardware donations are as welcome as your monetary gift, so there are many ways you can help us rebuild after two back to back floods. And thank you for helping us do what we do. #Reglue

Let's hope that this gets fixed. Kind of scary that you can be a journalist, and get tossed in the clink for covering a story.
This just makes me so mad. Mainstream media was basically ignoring what's happening at the Dakota Access Pipeline protests. Democracy Now shows up to actually cover this important demonstration, and so the state of North Dakota is now trying to intimidate others from reporting by charging well-respected journalist Amy Goodman with "riot" charges. On what grounds? Because McLean County State's Attorney Ladd Ronald Erickson says that Goodman isn't a legitimate reporter. So here's this government official for some county in North Dakota trying to determine what does and does not constitute journalism in this country. North Dakota's mighty far north for a banana republic.

This is the email I just sent to Erickson:
Mr. Erickson,
Your current attempt to prosecute Amy Goodman, especially your belief that you are in a position to determine what does and does not constitute journalism, sets a very dangerous precedent for the state of North Dakota and for any government office really. You may not agree with Ms. Goodman's conclusions about the pipeline protests, but prosecuting her for "riot" charges or any other charges that stand in the way of her reporting is something that is going to get a lot of very negative attention for the state of North Dakota - and more importantly, is something that threatens the freedom of the press.
I sincerely hope that you reconsider this decision. It is bad, very bad, for our democracy.
As he is a government official, you, too, can easily contact him:
Ladd Ronald Erickson
Attorney at Law
P.O. Box 1108
Washburn, ND 58577-1108
New charges have been filed against Democracy Now! anchor Amy Goodman for filming attack on Dakota Access Pipeline protesters, after trespassing charge dropped.

This really makes me wonder if she was actually participating in the protest versus just reporting on it. It's not like she was the only reporter covering it.

Main Office for Alcohol Anonymous in Cleveland, Ohio. - AA is a membership of many people, many personalities, and many walks of life working together sharing their experiences strength and hope to stay sober. - Consider it Crowdsourcing for Sobriety. As with any crowd, you might not see eye to eye with every member. But as a whole it's the best program around and ALL of the other 12 step programs are a respin of this, if you will. None of the other programs have the track history of AA.

There's a very GOOD reason there's typically a line here. They've got some excellent chef's. A Great menu, and part of the fun of the visit here is to hear what the daily special's are. Love their Quiche Lorraine. They're known for huge (perhaps a full pound of meat?) corned beef sandwiches, and latkes. They're also known for their Saturday Prime Rib dinners. They're closed on Sundays.
