People labor under the misconception that Corporate America is "efficient".
I've never heard anyone make that claim. Perhaps "least bad" compared to Socialist or Totalitarian, but not efficient.
State and Federal subsidies for "green" energy is already several times this $50B. What more do you think it will take?
Plus there are very few places in the US where solar makes sense. Cloudy, too far north, etc. Doesn't matter how efficient the panels are or whether you subsidize them 100%
Specially at teaching math.
And further, those who are good at math tend to be especially bad at teaching it to people who don't get it.

As I read it, the CIA searched their own computers that were made available to the Senate Committee, looking for documents that were not supposed to be made available or publicly released. For whatever reason (probably a CIA screw-up) someone on the committee found those documents and blabbed about them.

It sounds like she has a reasonable complaint, but given the amount of hysteria around leaks these days it doesn't surprise me that the CIA thought they had a bigger problem than just one of their own inadvertently releasing documents that should not have been.

That's Fark quality.
around July 2013, Bitcoin entrepreneur Roger Ver visited Mt. Gox's Tokyo headquarters. He published a video saying he believed the company's withdrawal problems were caused by the "traditional banking system, not because of a lack of liquidity at Mt. Gox."...
In an email interview last week, Ver recalled his meeting with Mt. Gox: "I watched him [Karpeles] log into his online bank account in real time and saw the balances with my own eyes. They had a huge amount of U.S. dollar liquidity at that time."
Yea, that's how a CPA would conduct an audit. No chance of anything sketchy going on with that kind of oversight.
