The super supercapacitor

This is cool. I think my son has his science fair project for next year!

VP Biden offers dangerous advice for how a woman should protect herself at home

Not only dangerous, but also potentially illegal.  Nice going, Mr. Vice President.


Jesse Jackson: "these weapons can shoot down airplanes, they can blow up railroads"

!  I'd like to see the semi-auto that can take out a railroad.  Semi-auto grenade launcher maybe? Thinking Methinks he's been into the apple wine...

Government expand health mandate to include housing

I suppose almost anything could be put under the "health" umbrella.  Once you hand over the reigns, how far with that horse take you?  :

This week, the Obama administration released a "bold new vision for addressing the nation's health and economic burdens caused by preventable hazards associated with the home."

The project has a name: "Advancing Healthy Housing: A Strategy for Action."


The healthy homes strategy sets  for reducing the number of substandard homes:

-- Establish healthy homes recommendations (homes should be dry, clean, pest-free, safe, contaminant-free, well-ventilated, and well-maintained and thermally controlled);

-- Encourage adoption of healthy homes recommendations (federal, state and local regulations);

-- Create and support training and workforce development to address health hazards in housing (train people for new jobs in green energy and construction);

-- Educate the public about healthy homes (advertising campaigns telling Americans how their homes ought to be)

-- Support research that advances healthy housing in a cost-effective manner (taxpayer-funded grants to study the problem).
