Kepler-452b: Exoplanet Most Like Earth | NASA
Scientists using data from NASA's Kepler mission have confirmed the first near-Earth-size planet orbiting in the habitable zone of a sun-like star. The habitable zone is the region around a star where temperatures are just right for water to exist in its liquid form.

The artistic concept compares Earth (left) to the new planet, called Kepler-452b, which is about 60 percent larger. The illustration represents one possible appearance for Kepler-452b—scientists do not know whether the planet has oceans and continents like Earth.

Both planets orbit a G2-type star of about the same temperature; however, the star hosting Kepler-452b is 6 billion years old, 1.5 billion years older than our sun. As stars age, they become larger, hotter and brighter, as represented in the illustration. Kepler-452b's star appears a bit larger and brighter.

Can I get an infinite amount of power by stacking them?
 
Impatient to see this in mass production, as well as the solar cell roads. That will be a real revolution in saving the Earth !

Ubiquitous Energy and Michigan State University researchers have created a fully transparent solar concentrator, which could turn any window or sheet of glass (like your smartphone's screen) into a photovoltaic solar cell.

Interesting article on food substitutes.  Great for gaming, sports, etc.
Pizza rolls, potato chips, and Hot Pockets washed down with Mountain Dew may silence that grumbling stomach, but these foods probably don’t do you any favors for your waistline (or your brain, for that matter). Instead, trade in the typical gamer grub with these healthier-but-still-delicious snack swaps.

The most exciting thing about CHIP is not that it is the first $9 computer, but that it is the first truly Open Source $9 computer.

Ohhh look, it's a tricorder. Gene Roddenberry invented that back in the 1960's.

A Pocket Molecular Sensor. Scans materials or physical objects and send instant information to your smartphone. Food, medicine, plants and more.
Wondering how nutritious that food is, if that plant needs water, or just <em>what</em> that misplaced pill is? Well, the makers of SCiO claim that their device is able to tell you all of those things, plus a lot more. To use it, you just scan the item, then check the readout on a smartphone.

I live next door to the care center so I see on a daily basis how the staff treats the residents. I would not allow anyone in my family to live there (I would say "be incarcerated there" is more accurate). The staff pays little attention to the residents. Residents can be seen wandering the neighborhood, unsupervised, at times and have even broken in to neighbors homes. The staff / management also don't seem to care about the interface / relationship between the residents, the home itself, and the neighbors. I would think this would be an excellent opportunity for the home to change the stereotype of those with mental capacity issues. Instead, they seem to almost go out of their way to offend and annoy the surrounding neighbors. This is not to say that all staff members are this way. There are certainly a very few who actually seem to care about the residents, but they are clearly in the minority.

Vision Wear is an awesome company to work with. Eric and Kathleen always go out of their way to ensure their customers are happy. They make a great quality product and they do it on time and within budget. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Jason and the crew at Laptop Depot are great to work with. They have outstanding customer service and great prices. Don't waste your money buying a brand new computer when you don't really need it. Instead, buy a used machine from Laptop Depot and save some serious cash. Some of their machines come with the remainder of the factory warranty. In addition to laptops, they also have desktop machines, monitors, printers, and a variety of other items.
