Am I the only one that gets the GoDaddy.com spiel when I try to go to xboxone.com? Seems shenannigansy.
1. What are you on?
2. How much?
3. Where can I get some?
Ok, here is the actual answer to your question. Sorry about the other posts.
Well, a few clicks confirms that suspicion. No word on weight, but I think the scale of the thing says it all, really.
Sounds like the wing itself is modeled after a turbine blade, so the wind is simultaneously holding it up and causing it to generate power. From the pictures, the thing looks pretty small (not much longer than the truck in the same pic) and it's presumably really light, depending on what materials they're using to construct them. My guess is carbon fiber, but I'm no engineer.
... but it seems they are willfully ignoring Linux as a platform. And teaching about computers. Yeah, cliche to complain about it, I know, but it does seem kind of disingenuous at best.
Let's not forget that apparently he can't figure out how to talk on the phone and type with both hands at the same time? Who would hire someone who can't figure out speakerphone?
If Bob has any geek in him at all, I think he just did.
See, carbon credits are sooooooooooooo great y'all!
This is the kind of problem that's created by adversarial politics, we almost always end up choosing a single bad guy to blame all the ills in the world on, but in the end, it's a systemic issue that creates these problems. We'll never find a metric that tells us what is right and wrong to do with regards to the environment, and any solution that seems to offer such a measurement is disingenuous at best.
I didn't RTFA, but I'm assuming that the summary is correct where it says the Obama administration was opposed to SCOTUS hearing the case. What reason did they give for the case not being heard?
Mod me to oblivion!
I've lived in China the past 6 years, and I have to say, this is exactly what I think when I'm walking down the street inhaling the bus and truck fumes. That being said, if an electric car has to last a few years on the same battery to be ecologically sound, I don't think they're ready for prime time.
An aside: in the US, I think they need to focus more on public transport. A lot of mid-level cities lack a good way for those in the suburbs to make it into the city (I'm from Milwaukee and there's one bus line that I know of, if you live in the suburbs, you need to drive to the bus stop). The unfortunate truth of the matter is that once a city is the right size (and shape) for building something like a subway, they simply don't have enough money to build it. The government has to wait until there are too many people (read: taxpayers) to build something, and by that time, the effect is minimal. Not saying we should have to pay more taxes, but there must be some solution to this sort of problem.
Actually, I believe the wiki page for LFTRs says that China is already working on having one going by ~2017. Of course, the wiki does read a little like an advertisement, which makes me somewhat skeptical, but it seems like R&D dollars ought to start going towards this. The thing I don't understand is how power generation didn't become a bigger campaign issue in light of Fukushima.
