Florida utility plans to install 30 million solar panels by 2030

"Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) has announced a groundbreaking "30-by-30" plan to install more than 30 million solar panels by 2030 and make the state of Florida a world leader in the production of solar energy.

FPL has secured solar sites throughout the state, enabling its bold plan to capture economies of scale and promote the construction of efficient and cost-effective solar generation. The end result will be the largest installation of solar panels by a regulated utility in the world and a 67% fleet-wide reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions rate by 2030 as compared to the national average..."

Why do onions make you cry, and how can you prevent it from happening? They're made up of a tunic of outer layers, scales, and the basal plate. When you cut the basal plate or shoot, they release an enzyme. That enzyme reacts in the rest of the onion to release a gas. When that gas combines with water, it creates an acid. If that water is in your eye, you have acid in your eye. Whoops. So, if you still have that onion hankering, watch this to stay tear-free!

LG G8 is rumored to have a "Second Screen" add-on

According to a recent report by CNET, LG may announce the LG G8 smartphone with a second-screen add-on at MWC next month. CNET's anonymous source was confident that the attachment would potentially double the screen size, and it would debut alongside several other LG phones at MWC.

The report also claims that the attachment will not be a foldable display like the one Samsung is teasing and describe it as a sort of case with a screen. This could give the phone an extra screen area, and as Google has already committed to supporting Android devices with changing screen sizes, we could expect to see more companies give it a try.

Read all about it here: http://bit.ly/PI-lg-g8-1

Celebrating 11 years of Flickr Commons

The Commons was launched on January 16, 2008, when Flickr released its pilot project in partnership with The Library of Congress. The two main objectives of the program were to increase discovery and use of publicly-held photography collections and to provide a way for the general public to contribute knowledge through user-generated content (by adding tags, comments, and notes to these historical collections).

One of the cool things is that a lively community discusses the images and has provided information about the image.

The Library of Congress has collected a number of "11-ish" images in celebration, with commentary from their staff:
https://blogs.loc.gov/picturethis/2019/01/celebrating-eleven-years-in-the-flickr-commons/

See the images from the Library of Congress (and other Commons member accounts) with the highest number of community-generated tags on the +Flickr blog:

A Robot Is Learning to Cook and Clean in an Ikea Kitchen

"Dieter Fox thinks cobots, a portmanteau for “collaborative robots,” will be a fixture of our future. These bots will operate alongside people, acting as our coworkers, companions, and caretakers.

Fox also thinks he knows how to ensure the company he works for, NVIDIA, is the one leading this new era in robotics — and it all starts with an Ikea kitchen..."

Optical and electron microscopy have made tremendous inroads into understanding the complexity of the brain. Gao et al. introduce an approach for high-resolution tracing of neurons, their subassemblies, and their molecular constituents over large volumes. They applied their method, which combines expansion microscopy and lattice light-sheet microscopy, to the mouse cortical column and the entire Drosophila brain. The approach can be performed at speeds that should enable high-throughput comparative studies of neural development, circuit stereotypy, and structural correlations to neural activity or behavior.

Scientists Mapped Entire Brains at Nanoscale For This Psychadelic Visualization

"The brain remains famously remains one of the most mysterious parts of the human body. The challenges of neuroscience are among the most daunting in the medical field. Expansion microscopy is a crucial element of that study, a chemical technique that expands a small specimen to make it more observable at the molecular level. A new technique allows scientists to expand microscopy so instead of focusing a single sell, it can explore full neural circuits, at a speed around 1,000 times faster than before..."
