    World's first airborne wind turbine will bring energy to remote areas. I think this is a neat concept- I am curious to know the cost/kilowatt based on this design.
    From their website: "Altaeros Energies is announcing the first planned commercial demonstration of its BAT (Buoyant Airborne Turbine) product in partnership with the Alaska Energy Authority. The Alaska project will deploy the BAT at a height of 1,000 feet above ground, a height that will break the world record for the highest wind turbine in the world. Altaeros has designed the BAT to generate consistent, low cost energy for the remote power and microgrid market, including remote and island communities; oil & gas, mining, agriculture, and telecommunication firms; disaster relief organizations; and military bases. The BAT uses a helium-filled, inflatable shell to lift to high altitudes where winds are stronger and more consistent than those reached by traditional tower-mounted turbines. High strength tethers hold the BAT steady and send electricity down to the ground. The lifting technology is adapted from aerostats, industrial cousins of blimps, which have lifted heavy communications equipment into the air for decades."

    "Everything around us is made up of chemicals from the water you drink to the air you breathe -literally water is a chemical substance which is why it’s frustrating when companies consistently tout their foods as chemical-free or you hear somebody say if you can’t pronounce an ingredient you don’t need. …Now this isn’t a defense of processed foods and it’s not to say that one side is better or worse than the other but simply that foods are complex things and a little perspective can go a long way. You simply can’t leave a chemical-free life like some brands would like you to think the word detox is strictly a marketing myth.  "

    Sam Van Aken, an artist and professor at Syracuse University, uses "chip grafting" to create trees that each bear 40 different varieties of stone fruits, or fruits with pits. The grafting process involves slicing a bit of a branch with a bud from a tree of one of the varieties and inserting it into a slit in a branch on the "working tree," then wrapping the wound with tape until it heals and the bud starts to grow into a new branch. Over several years he adds slices of branches from other varieties to the working tree. In the spring the "Tree of 40 Fruit" has blossoms in many hues of pink and purple, and in the summer it begins to bear the fruits in sequence—Van Aken says it's both a work of art and a time line of the varieties' blossoming and fruiting. He's created more than a dozen of the trees that have been planted at sites such as museums around the U.S., which he sees as a way to spread diversity on a small scale.

    Gulliver  s Park in the Turia Riverbed
    News   /   Comments
    The enduring image of the story Gulliver’s Travels is Gulliver tied down while tiny Lilliputians walk over his body. The scene is recreated well at Gulliver’s Park in Valencia, Spain.
    "The Gulliver Park is probably the most inspired playground I’ve ever seen. Valencia’s Fallas artists have created a giant replica of Jonathan Swift’s hero in the Turia Riverbed, sprawled out on the ground and bound by ropes. The body is cleverly designed, with Gulliver’s hair and jacket serving as slides, folds in his sleeves and pants becoming stairs, and the ropes which trap him knotted for climbing."
