Wind and solar power are disrupting electricity systems

"At its heart, the problem is that government-supported renewable energy has been imposed on a market designed in a different era. For much of the 20th century, electricity was made and moved by vertically integrated, state-controlled monopolies. From the 1980s onwards, many of these were broken up, privatised and liberalised, so that market forces could determine where best to invest. Today only about 6% of electricity users get their power from monopolies. Yet everywhere the pressure to decarbonise power supply has brought the state creeping back into markets. This is disruptive for three reasons. The first is the subsidy system itself. The other two are inherent to the nature of wind and solar: their intermittency and their very low running costs. All three help explain why power prices are low and public subsidies are addictive."

Yeah, this happened today. Pretty much as the author describes his first experience with an exploding bottle of beer. I'm thinking it may be a fermentation issue on my end. Though, more likely it's the bottles we re-use from whatever commercial brew we buy.

How Movie Sound Effects Are Created

Have you ever seen foley artists? Probably not, because their job is to remain invisible and create a sense of reality within a movie using only sound. Foley artists recreate ambient sounds in a studio, and these reproduced sounds can be anything from footsteps to the swishing of clothing. Filmmaker Daniel Jewel has created an insightful documentary, called ‘The Secret World of Foley‘ which presents the backstage of foley art. Without these crucial background noises, movies feel unnaturally quiet and uncomfortable.
