Yesterday, Charles #Koch , one of the brothers behind anti-climate science funding, the #XLPipeline efforts, and more crazy stuff to usurp your country, published an Op Ed in The Wall Street Journal, here is my response.
Dear Mr. Koch, When I read your letter to the American people in the Wall Street Journal, I felt I had to respond. I am not doing this because I think you will actually read these words or that, in the end, this letter w...

Pretty hot stuff!
 
2,200 Degrees Yet Cool Enough to Handle

A very cool (pardon the temperature pun) demonstration of LI-900 in action. This is the stuff that the Space Shuttle tiles are made from.

They are composed of 99.9% silica glass and are 94% air by volume. That means that they are incredibly bad heat conductors, making those edges safe to handle with bare hands.

They can also be submerged immediately into cold water and suffer no damage. Pretty neat, huh?

We thought so, and since we love all things  #science   and  #space   here at www.solarvps.com - we figured it was definitely worth a share.

Hope you all are having an excellent  #monday  !

This is why +The Colbert Report is more than just funny, it is brilliant and making a difference in the political discourse. Legal group that helped him set up a Super PAC to point out the flaws in the system gets #MacArthurGeniusGrant - +ABA Journal - Law News Now

Props to Apple BOO NCPPR, don't go to war with the triple bottom line!
 
At the Shareholders meeting, NCPPR called on Apple to take a pledge that it would not pursue environmental initiatives unless they helped increase profit.

Cook did not hesitate. Even though some environmental policies can be good for the bottom line, "we do a lot of things for reasons besides profit motive," Cook said. "We want to leave the world better than we found it." And anyone who objects? “Get out of the stock.”

The Asian Art Museum is a jewel of San Francisco. Displaying amazing cultural displays from across the Asian world including Japan, India, China and beyond. There are times I have hated myself for missing one or two of their exhibits.

The Bitter End is a lovely Irish Pub with a friendly staff and great pub food. Every Tuesday night they have a gathering of minds for a weekly trivia contest where it is usually packed. HAVE to try the Pepper Steak and the cinnamon/tabasco shot.

Toyose is amazing in just the way that it is presented. A hidden jewel in the Sunset district of San Francisco, Toyose is hidden in literally in a tenant's garage. Like walking through the wardrobe, a warm Korean Narnia is inside. This place is a bit pricey and sometimes doesn't have the best service, sometimes even getting a table can be difficult, but if you can manage it, Do try their "corn and cheese," "kimchi fried rice" and delicious flavored soju.

The Sutro Bath House is a magic place filled with mystery, history and fantastic views. Not only was it the largest salt water bath house in the world but it also was the set for a fantastic scene out of the movie "Harold and Maude."

One of the coolest places in the mission for both kids and the "kids at heart" Paxton Gate's has tons of awesome, hand made items for kids and those that love awesome things. Both it and its sister store down the block inspire curiosity and wonder with all of their awesome items, including hand made "sock-monsters" totally NOT made by the writer of this review.
