Talkin’ ‘Bout Mo’ Generation

Just as I tweet my favorite articles so that I have a filing place for them (Twitter is awesome for so many reasons, don’t get me started…), I use my desktop to store all my favorite graphics. And it is way too cluttered. So in my quest to make it more minimal and zen, here is an assembly of images which I need to set free, all with a similar theme: that of power. Enjoy! » read more

Could The Biggest Success For NGVs Be At Sea?

As natural gas becomes ever more prevalent as a global fuel, there are increasingly more inventive ways of both consuming and transporting it (see left). While here in the US there is ever greater focus on CNG and LNG-powered vehicles, there is potentially another form of transport that could steal the crown as the King of NGVs…shipping.

In the last week I have been doing some digging into the topic of flight. But rather than just throw out some random facts, I figured I’d make you do the work. So here are ten questions from which you simply need to decide what form of transport it relates to: aviation or automobile. There is even a bonus question at the end with a chance to win a prize.

Burrito bites

And an unsurprising and uncontroversial speech from Federal Reserve (= US central bank) Chairman Ben Bernanke is releasing the pressure from the tires of anticipation that has steadily built up this week. 

The fact that no further stimulus (read: Red Bull™*) was announced for the US economy is no shock, although the door of hope was left more than ajar for general markets by the announcement of an extra day of discussion by the Fed at their next meeting in September. » read more
