But the "more is better" school definitely is at work here. More important for a TV in my opinion is good dark shadows definition (ours is meh; darks just go solid black) and latency... how good at showing fast motion is it? If you're buying 4k screens and sitting 15-20 feet away, um, well, whatever man.



The very root of marketing.

This is just one minor experimental scheme, and not a particularly useful one. If we really want to reduce carbon in the atmosphere we need to generate energy without producing it in the first place. That geothermal plant driving the capture scheme, for instance: the heat it exploits is driven by nuclear power.

The other easy solution is to reduce the use of automobiles and self-propel more.  In an information technology-dominated economy, the potential benefits are rather obvious ...... to no one but a small handful of poorly socialized, unpopular folks.

I didn't write the headline or the article, just thought it was interesting tech. The number of such things it would take to make any real impact is certainly prohibitive.

The world is banking on giant carbon-sucking fans to clean our climate mess. It's a big risk.

A ‘Historic Event’: First Malaria Vaccine Approved by W.H.O.
Malaria kills about 500,000 people each year, about half of them children in Africa. The new vaccine isn’t perfect, but it will help turn the tide, experts said.
The vaccine, called Mosquirix, is not just a first for malaria — it is the first developed for any parasitic disease. Parasites are much more complex than viruses or bacteria, and the quest for a malaria vaccine has been underway for a hundred years.

"Burr comments that locating “primary water” does not require drilling down thousands of feet. He says that globally, thousands of primary water wells have been successfully drilled; and for most of them, flowing water was tapped at less than 400 feet. It is forced up from below through fissures in the Earth. What is new are the innovative technologies now being used to pinpoint where those fissures are."


Bwaaah! Haaa! Haaa! This is complete bullshit wrapped in the thinnest veneer of misrepresented the science. I particularly love the idea that you tap the "primary water" from the mantle by drilling at hilltop locations. Surely the new volcano in Iceland that has a lava source in the upper mantle should be gushing water.

But then the evil, misguided geologists don't know anything, right?
