Some things need to be said, then shared and repeated far and wide so the future knows we didn't go down without a fight. This one is for the freaks and geeks...

Fake news can drown out real, useful information. Get your head above the water.
It’s easier than ever for someone to create a website and post completely made up stories that become international headlines. This makes it harder to tell truth from fiction or share news with others who may not be able to tell the difference either. Luckily, fake news isn’t too difficult to spot. Here’s how, and how to filter it out of your feeds.

In the nightmare of the dark,

All the dogs of America bark.

And the living nations wait,

Each sequestered in its hate.

Intellectual disgrace

stares from every human face

And the seas of pity lie

Locked and frozen in each eye.

Follow, poet, follow right

To the bottom of the night,

With your unconstraining voice

Still persuade us to rejoice.

With the farming of a verse

Make a vineyard of the curse.

Sing of human unsuccess

In a rapture of distress.

In the deserts of the heart

Let the healing fountains start,

In the prison of his days

Teach the free man how to praise...

Both parties are to blame and it has cost all of us a republic.

NEW EPISODE: Our ‪#‎DirectCurrent‬ podcast is back! This week, we're talking about the electric grid -- how it works, what happens when it fails, and what the Energy Department is doing to make it more resilient.
Listen below for a harrowing real-life story from Hoboken, NJ, in the wake of Superstorm Sandy, and hear from an expert on how a "microgrid" could help the city prepare for future disasters. You can also check out the episode page for infographics, videos, and lots more good stuff! http://bit.ly/29HuJyB

Small maintenance projects focusing on below ground infrastructure in old, established neighborhoods have the greatest potential for positive returns.
