    White House readies panel to question security risks of climate

    Happer said on CNBC in 2014 that the “demonization of carbon dioxide is just like the demonization of the poor Jews under Hitler.”
    I have every bit of confidence that this guy has since changed his mind and no longer compares fighting climate change to the f***ing holocaust.

    US tells UK to lower their farm animal standards. It's ok to have to wash your meat in chlorine, we do it.

    Pyrex glass sold in stores since 1998 is just regular glass???

    Corning licensed the Pyrex brand to a company called World Kitchen—now known as Corelle Brands—in 1998, and by nearly all accounts, all Pyrex cookware sold in the United States after that year has been made of tempered soda-lime glass. This is where the controversy really heats up.The vast majority of glass products are made of soda-lime glass: window panes, jars, bottles, all kinds of glass. Soda-lime glass is cheaper to make than borosilicate glass, which is undoubtedly why Pyrex started experimenting with it. However, borosilicate glass is not only harder, stronger, and more durable than soda-lime glass; it’s also more resilient to thermal shock.

    Protip: Look for all-caps PYREX graphics which can either indicate that is vintage or that it’s from Europe, where a company called Arc International owns the Pyrex brand and still makes its cookware out of borosilicate.

    WTF is this??? They are trying to distract us with the water red herring. The real story is...

    A farm, in America, that pays well and where all the locals want to work at??? What happened to the $4/hr undocumented workers that work 12 hours a day, only get paid for 8, and live in substandard housing.

    “Everyone wants to be working here,” Jim told me. Not only does the company employ more than 100 locals full-time – as compared with the part-time or seasonal labor found on most farms – and with 401ks, vacation and health insurance, but they also support local farmers by purchasing their alfalfa to add to their bales and ship overseas.

    A new report has found that 26 states now either restrict or outright prohibit towns and cities from building their own broadband networks. Quite often the laws are directly written by the telecom sector, and in some instances ban towns and cities from building their own broadband networks—even if the local ISP refuses to provide service.

    How the Boeing 737 Max Disaster Looks to a Software Developer

    I had heard rumors that the 737 would nose dive based on a single sensor error. It is sad to find that the rumor was true.

    This is pretty lame failure for people to die over.

    I have been a pilot for 30 years, a software developer for more than 40. I have written extensively about both aviation and software engineering. Now it’s time for me to write about both together.
    The airframe, the hardware, should get it right the first time and not need a lot of added bells and whistles to fly predictably. This has been an aviation canon from the day the Wright brothers first flew at Kitty Hawk.

    Apparently the 737 Max pitched up a bit too much for comfort on power application as well as at already-high angles of attack. It violated that most ancient of aviation canons and probably violated the certification criteria of the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration. But instead of going back to the drawing board and getting the airframe hardware right (more on that below), Boeing relied on something called the “Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System,” or MCAS.

    Boeing’s solution to its hardware problem was software.

    What is the matter auto CEO? Did you guys just figure out that when you fire all the people in Ohio and Pennsylvania, that the replacement wage slaves in Mexico making $3 hour can't afford to buy your freaking $40,000 vehicles?

    This is a self made crises. Enjoy the fruits of your labor. Or pay your Mexican workers what you should be paying them, a living wage. Also, quit firing your American workers. You are killing off your customer base at the same time.
