Progress!
Within a year, soaps containing antibacterial ingredients like triclosan will be gone from store shelves. The US Food and Drug Administration announced a rule today that it’s no longer considering these ingredients safe and effective in soaps sold to consumers.

"An octopus's brain is located in its egg-shaped head, called the mantle. But the brain does not have complete control over its body. Each arm contains enough neurons to operate semi-independently."

My family has rules about not eating other predators unless we're really hungry. Game is there for all of us to eat.

Apropos of +Kees Cook's presentation on "Improving Security"[1]  at the Kernel Summit, I thought this Onion article was hilarious.  (Or depressing if we focus on what it means about the work we have to do, but sometimes laughing is a better alternative than crying.  :-)

BEIJING—Despite devoting countless resources toward rectifying the issue, Chinese government officials announced Monday that the country has struggled to recruit hackers fast enough to keep pace with vulnerabilities in U.S. security systems.

Thoughts on the recent, ill-advised manhunt for Satoshi Nakamoto, and how to spot Satoshi if he were to walk among us, as he does.
The tech press was abuzz two days ago with a claim, from reputable journalists at Wired and Gizmodo, that Satoshi Nakamoto was Dr. Craig S. Wright. I knew Dr. Craig S. Wright. I was one of the 95 people he followed. We had exchanged private messages on Twitter. He had told me his life story, ...

The technology behind bitcoin lets people who do not know or trust each other build a dependable ledger. This has implications far beyond the cryptocurrency

Wow.
Amazon.com Inc. is flexing its e-commerce muscles to gain an edge on competitors in the video-streaming market by ending the sale of devices from Google Inc. and Apple Inc. that aren’t easily compatible with Amazon’s video service.

Stupid move. We can get our Chromecast at other credible retailers, and while we're at it, why not buy other stuff there too? Amazon is starting to walk away from their core business of being a one stop shop, so customers start walking away from amazon. By the way: Google delivered my Chromecast from play store' devices section overnight, very convenient.

Only 39% of the energy the U.S. generates reaches users.

There's a big difference between U.S. fuel inputs (e.g. coal, natural gas, hydro, nuclear, solar, wind, etc.) and end-use energy consumption (e.g. residential, industrial, transportation). This wastage occurs because no process for generating and distributing energy is 100% efficient. But you probably would have guessed that more than 39% of energy made it to end-users.

This loss through inefficiency is known as 'rejected energy' -- and it's a ripe target for innovation. Improving this percentage (even a little) would yield significant cost and environmental benefits. Remember: the energy is being produced -- it's just dissipating before we can use it..

Originally published in August, 2013, the article below references a 2012 chart that was just recently updated by +Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory here: https://flowcharts.llnl.gov/content/assets/images/energy/us/Energy_US_2014.png

As you can see, the ratio of rejected to consumable energy hasn't budged in recent years (and actually increased in the last two years).
An updated analysis published last month by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory suggests that the USA is just 39% energy efficient. Put ...

The rise of distributed power. Obama was trying to untangle the mess of power distribution a few years back... haven't heard much about that lately. but, you can purchase your own mini nuclear reactor from russia or Jenbacher/Wakusha generators, some generators come with batteries to hold charges for high demand times. the best I've seen, fuel cells using simple steel cathodes.

Nothing but good things to say about this shop. Been taking my older Jeep to this shop for many months, as it is slowly restored from "project vehicle" to working condition. Their mechanics are skilled, and there is no problem when I bring in my own parts.
