A good article on the importance of power storage for renewable energy systems. Baseload power plants (coal, gas, nuclear, hydro) can generate at full capacity 24/7 but solar and wind can't. Without adequate storage means they can destabilize the power grid, because of their intermittent nature, and cause brownouts or blackouts. This becomes more problematic as they grow as a percentage of the supply.
by Rud Istvan From the utility grid perspective, a fundamental problem with wind and solar is intermittency. In the US, wind has a median capacity factor of 31%. In California’s Mohave Desert, sola...

"A new report describes the findings of a very small study in which people with mild clinical impairment, such as those in the very early stages of the disease, saw clearance of the hallmark amyloid-beta protein and reduced inflammation in neurological tissues."
Here's more evidence that fish oil supplementation and antioxidants might be beneficial for at least some people facing Alzheimer's disease: A new report describes the findings of a very small study in which people with mild clinical impairment, such as those in the very early stages of the disease, saw clearance of the hallmark amyloid-beta protein and reduced inflammation in neurological tissues.

"The conclusion is that the oscillatory mode (mostly due to the AMO) is significantly more important than the monotonic mode (mostly due to increasing atmospheric CO2) in explaining the 1980–2000 temperature increase. The influence of the AMO is smaller in climate regions further removed from its vicinity. As to the pause in warming since 2000, it seems likely that this is the result of a recurrence of the AMO stage that initiated the 1938–1974 pause, the transition from a warming to a cooling AMO."

Program from the 2015 World Science Festival.
"In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Einstein's general theory of relativity, leaders from multiple fields of physics discuss its essential insights, its lingering questions, the latest work it has sparked, and the allied fields of research that have resulted."

This has very interesting implications. Good for people to be aware of so they're not so easily exploited for marketing or political purposes. As Twain said;
"There are lies, damned lies and statistics."

This would apply to climate science as well. Too many unsubstantiated claims being thrown to the public for attention or to cause fear.
 
Comment: Astrophysics and cosmology have cried wolf too many times and lost credibility, says Jan Conrad. The scientific community must now address the habits that have crept in to ensure that reports of false discoveries do not overwhelm genuine scientific breakthroughs. 
Tighten the requirements for declaring physics breakthroughs, says Jan Conrad.

"At issue is a problem known as the “density limit” that keeps donut-shaped fusion facilities called tokamaks from operating at peak efficiency. This limit occurs when the superhot, charged plasma gas that fuels fusion reactions reaches a certain density and spirals apart in a flash of light, shutting down the reaction. Overcoming the limit could facilitate the development of fusion as a safe, clean and abundant source of energy for generating electricity."

I don't listen to Rush Limbaugh, don't care for him, but I agree with this article.
"Anyone who thinks for themselves, rejects an inevitable apocalypse, or exposes the bad science of fear mongering, are called deniers by a legion of ignorant but rabid internet stalkers."
"Once you believe the world is coming to an end, once you lose faith in humanity and nature’s resilience, once you lose hope, then like the Heaven’s Gate victims, you become easy prey for the charlatans that inhabit all walks of life, left or right, scientist or layperson. Indeed “Apocalyptic, Fear-Mongering Accelerates the Decline of Our Culture”."
