It's confirmed, Silicon Valley has jumped the shark.
Government funds rebuilding the power grid infrastructure because vast quantities of wind power destablizes grid. And in other, other news, government funds development of massive grid-level storage batteries because quantities of wind power are generated at the wrong time of the day for utilization.
So you could take more than 2 oz. through TSA? Sounds like a win.
I'm thinking, if there's one piece of software I'd kinda like "frozen in time", it would be a dependable journaling filesystem.
Is the gradual re-purposing of the Lawrence Hall Of Science from a museum explaining the history of nuclear research to just another science museum presenting dinosaurs, earthquakes and global warming.

They want the secrecy of a private corporation along with the myriads of legal protections that a police force has.
Why can't we have nice things too?
Sound like it is a bad thing...
The Tri-Cities (Richland-Pasco-Kenniwick) area has been dependent on the Hanford project for prosperity forever. There is absolutely no local motivation to complete the cleanup when thousands semi-skilled workers are making $40/hr+ +benefits. The project will certainly be dragged out until every possible drop is drained from the milchcow.
