Something to Know -

Clay Bennett
1.  Batteries are the wall that we have run up against as we advance in technology.  The size and weight for electric cars, the life in our incessant collection of digital hand-held gizmos, and the power supplies for the the new generation aircraft.   Here is one way, perhaps, that technology can meet demands and expectations.  - next is the conversion to fresh from sea water:

2.  The military mind from Ben.  The Albany new bureau keeps track of good stories out of the Bay Area.  The suggestion here is that perhaps we are not asking the right questions or failing to see our own failures in the pursuit of a good debate on the issue of drones and drone warfare:

3.  As long as we are in the discussion of warfare, you need to read this - for at least two reasons.   (1) You need to know about it because it is going to be widely discussed today.  (2) It focuses on the weakness, or Achilles Heel we have, with our total dependence on the internet and cyber technology.   In addition, all those hawks in Congress can get off their jet fighters, tanks, and old-school weapons programs, and realize that we are in a new phase of warfare that does not involve things that catch fire and explode:

4.  Rebutting the Chinese Army unit that is hacking our power grids, corporate secrets, and the Coca Cola recipe, David Brooks fires back on the strategy of just collecting data, and just going with your gut emotions.   Mr.  Brooks is going to war without a gun:



Reminds me of my safari in Africa. Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days we had to live on nothing but food and water.
