Submission + - Meteor injures 400 in Russia (yahoo.com)

Grayhand writes: A meteor the size of an Olympic swimming exploded over Russia injuring 400, mostly from flying glass. It's high time we have a real budget for tracking near Earth objects before there's a real disaster. It's not a matter of if only when.

Submission + - Is the modern business model sustainable (cnn.com)

Grayhand writes: Traditionally all a company needed to show was a profit to be considered viable. Lately Apple's stock has fallen sharply simply because the profit projections are less than expected. A company with a 100 billion in cash is seeing a drop in stock. Atari was a darling for 20 years but now they are in bankruptcy. With growth not profits being the watermark can most companies survive the next 100 years? Given all Wall Street cares about is unending growth will they bring about the end of civilization since unending growth itself is unsustainable?

Submission + - Read rights contracts carefully! (phoenixnewtimes.com)

Grayhand writes: A young video maker found out the hard way that signing a contract for his videos could have lifetime repercussions. A contract with Machinima forced him to abandon video making for life. Be warned it's becoming the standard for contracts.

Submission + - Molten Salt Reactors would solve most of the problems (discovery.com)

Grayhand writes: Normally I'm opposed to more nuclear reactors because of the long term waste and risks involved. Molten Salt Reactors would get rid of most of the risks and would address the long term waste problems we have now. Build them next to existing reactors and the transport issues would also be solved.
