Advertising coming to EV charging stations? 3.7.2015 Environmental News Network
While many electric vehicle owners will find it irritating and annoying to be hit with adverts when charging their vehicles, is this a sign of the times? The fact that many larger companies are willing and prepared to pay for advertising space on “free” charging devices seems to indicate that the marketing industry believes the sector is here to stay. So, will advertising be a help or a hindrance to the industry going forward?Until the electric vehicle industry cracks the “mass market” it is vital that the cost of services and products is kept as low as possible. There will come a point when costs will have to rise, services will be chargeable and the whole dynamic will be very different than what we see today but, in the meantime, is advertising on “free” charging stations really a hindrance?

New data on distant galaxy numbers 3.7.2015 Environmental News Network
There may be far fewer galaxies further out in the Universe then might be expected, suggests a new study based on simulations conducted using the Blue Waters supercomputer at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, with resulting data transferred to SDSC Cloud at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California, San Diego, for future analysis. The study, published this week in the Astrophysical Journal Letters, shows the first results from the Renaissance Simulations, a suite of extremely high-resolution adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) calculations of high redshift galaxy formation. Moreover, these simulations show hundreds of well-resolved galaxies, allowing researchers to make several novel and verifiable predictions ahead of the October 2018 launch of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), a new space observatory that succeeds the Hubble Space ...

Exclusive: Europeans tried to block IMF debt report on Greece: sources 3.7.2015 Yahoo: Top Stories
By Paul Taylor BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Euro zone countries tried in vain to stop the IMF publishing a gloomy analysis of Greece's debt burden which the leftist government says vindicates its call to voters to reject bailout terms, sources familiar with the situation said on Friday. The document released in Washington on Thursday said Greece's public finances will not be sustainable without substantial debt relief, possibly including write-offs by European partners of loans guaranteed by taxpayers. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras cited the report in a televised appeal to voters on Friday to say 'No' to the proposed austerity terms, which have anyway expired since talks broke down and Athens defaulted on an IMF loan this ...

The Kingii, A Tiny Life Preserver, Could Save Your Summer 3.7.2015 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
We've all been there: Someone offers you a bulky, bright orange life vest and you politely decline. You know how to swim, you tell yourself. Plus, it would look pretty dorky. But according to the the United States Coast Guard, 82 percent of people who drowned in 2013 weren’t wearing a life preserver . The World Health Organization estimates that 370,000 people drown every year . A handy piece of wearable technology aims to reduce that number by changing the image of -- and your attitude toward -- life preservers. Still in its fundraising stage, the Kingii -- named after a lizard that opens the orange fringe around its neck when it feels threatened -- is a wrist-mounted buoyancy aid . If you're wearing a Kingii and find yourself struggling in the water, a simple yank of the lever on your wrist releases a carbon dioxide cartridge, inflating a small orange pouch that helps you float in the water. Story continues below... Kingii's founder, a California-based insurance agent named Tom Agapiades, says he ...
