Submission + - Hydraulic Hybrid Drive Vehicle Promises 170 MPG (inhabitat.com)

MikeChino writes: While these days “hybrid” usually means a gasoline/electric vehicle, Valentin Technologies is exploring a different hybrid combination that promises a 5-passenger car with outstanding performance. While right now it is just a drivetrain, the company's hydraulic hybrid features a combination of weight savings, aerodynamic efficiency, regenerative braking, and engine efficiency could yield a remarkable 170 miles per gallon. The system weighs half as much as a hybrid electric and utilizes hydraulic wheelmotors for both propulsion and braking, eliminating the need for large heavy batteries and disk brakes.

Submission + - Ron Paul Raises $3.5 Million In One Day

realinvalidname writes: The AP is reporting that Presidential candidate Ron Paul raised over $3.5 million online Monday, a record for a Republican. The push was part of a campaign surge tied to Guy Fawkes Day. From the story: "Fawkes was a British mercenary who failed in his attempt to kill King James I on Nov. 5, 1605. He also was the model for the protagonist in the movie V for Vendetta. Paul backers motivated donors on the Internet with mashed-up clips of the film on the online video site YouTube as well as the Guy Fawkes Day refrain: "Remember, remember the 5th of November.""
