Put On Your Thinking Cap

It’s time to put on your thinking caps. Amazingly, exposing your brain to infra-red light could reverse the effects of aging. I think I needed one of those today.

T Boone Pickens is an oil man who is building a huge wind farm in Texas. As he points out on his website we are sending 700 billion dollars a year to other countries for oil. His suggestion is we replaced the portion of electricity generated using natural gas with renewable resources and then burn the natural gas in transportation.

I had never heard of Shelby Super Cars. They claim to have the world’s fastest production car. Now they are getting into electric vehicles. I read this on their website today.

Other automakers have sacrificed aesthetics and performance in exchange for hybrid power plants, but the Ultimate Aero EV will deliver a pollution-free, engineering marvel with an exotic Supercar exterior. The drive train under development will feature a revolutionary power source allowing for extended time between charging intervals with the possibility of several years between charging.

I’m not sure what they are saying. It’s a hybrid so presumably there is some kind of fuel. Then again, I knew right after I spent money on a new gasoline powered car, someone would make it obsolete.

As long as I’m talking about fuels here is another article about a breakthrough in converting biomass into biofuel.

This is one of those sites that explains science in the context of everyday life.

It’s not available yet, but they have created a robot that can take a whole bunch of pictures and then knit them into a huge panorama shot.

I got a chuckle out of this.

And finally, check out this talented dog.
