Good news for nematode haters and fresh food eaters.
Field studies in two Florida locations evaluated and compared anaerobic soil disinfestations (ASD) and chemical soil fumigation (CSF) performance on weed and nematodes control, and on fruit yield and quality of fresh-market tomato. Results indicated that ASD (applied using a mixture of composted poultry litter and molasses as carbon source) may be a potentially sustainable alternative to conventional CSF for controlling plant-parasitic nematodes ...

Liability is the problem. Uber and Lyft cannot defend lawsuits where both hardware, bought from automakers, and software are accused of failing-unsafely. Only the maker will have the billions x billions of similar simulated instances to show why an automaton killed my baby on purpose as the least damaging outcome. That will minimize settlement costs.
Volvo Cars and Uber join forces to develop autonomous driving cars (photo credit: Volvo) With the recent announcements of aggressive plans to deploy autonomous vehicles in ride-hailing services, the end-game for the companies in this space seems clear. All of the tens of thousands of drivers they’ve been recruiting in recent [...]

Of course, the CA PUC has not noticed how clear and sunny the afternoon sky is for the days and weeks that the grid is overheating to make up for the fact that only 20% of peak electricity, generated by local solar would be enough. Add smart controls ala Google's AI and local citizens could weather in place even if the grid failed.

There are many bits and pieces of city saving technologies that Elon Musk is bringing together: 1) military grade HEPA filters will soon be on Google's busses and other vehicles that protect people from the output of diesel cars and trucks 2) battery powered trucks that move containers from ports to warehouses and other transshipment points within one hundred miles of Alameda CA 3) automated truck convoy systems that reduce accidents from the MacArthur Maze to Tracy CA.

Batteries are the basis of all this. Moreover smart solar roofs on Walmarts and Costcos feed emergency power as needed during the weeks long series of extremely hot sunny or cold sunny days that follow storms, Food and shelter will be there and at home if the PUC deigns to let you protect yourself with efficient battery powered emergency systems.
The billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk is running a private rocket company, doubling down on alternative fuels and pressing on with Tesla after a series of accidents.

Sites with annoying interstitials punish themselves. Advertisers who pay the sludge of the earth to harass their best clients will learn, if they ever master AdWorlds, how much they have harmed themselves!

I access hundreds of sites daily and rarely revisit sites that waste my time.

Condos filled with 24/7 professionals and club houses of gated communities can have wideband internet without permission from telecoms or cable cos. This is a good thing. Moreover, antennas driven by Google Fiber Huts can assure connectivity for emergencies. Of course incumbents will claim innovative ways to let grandma roast in her home, grandpa overpay for sports on TV and local students be spared access to information. Facts don't matter to incumbents and their lobbyists in Congress.
Wireless could help Google Fiber avoid fights with incumbents over pole access.

Spare me the advice. Riding bikes, jogging or walking to work during temperature inversions in the Bay Area can take 15 years off your useful life. Oh sure, MDs can keep your heart pumping for fifteen years after you give up the triathlon. GLWT
According to DEM, air quality is predicted to reach unhealthy levels during the afternoon and evening hours on Friday.

Outside of having beautiful and brilliant mothers, Elon and Donald have nothing in common. While Elon was learning Math in HS, Donald was learning to count off steps in Military (reform) School.
Together, Tesla's CEO and the Republicans' presidential nominee define an American ideal of 2016.

The sons of the Brits who won WWII and prevented the Stazis from taking all of Germany from the 'ex'Nazis while the Americans prevented the Communists from taking France from the 'ex'Vichy. Will be more than happy to rid themselves of the Germans and French. Thoughts that the rest of Europe prefers being bossed by Germans or Russians are nonsense
