We all have heard it. Beware the disruptive technology that will change the way things happen in this world. But, having developed more than my share of new innovations, I can guarantee you that the world does NOT beat down the doors of those with better mousetraps.
Way back when I was still having kids (no, not me, silly- my wife), I noticed the crazy trends in kids names. (I didn’t fall prey to that trend- but mostly because I used religious names for my kids. Yet, my middle daughter got caught up in that – because of a TV program She-Ra, Princess of Power. Wrong spelling, right sound.)
Given the fact that I have a full queue (thankfully!), you might have thought I wasn’t appreciative that Jeffrey Scott nominated me as a creative blogger a while ago. No, this was the first spot I could insert my response that would not upset the applecart (or is that the Leaning Tower of Pisa?) that describes my blog queue.
I wrote about the Chevron plant that converts solar energy to steam, so that they can recover oil using a smaller carbon footprint. This Coalinga (CA) plant is pretty darned big. It’s on some 65 acres and nearly 8000 mirrors that track the sun. (They are called heliostats.) And, it yields some 29 MW of steam.
(I know I said today’s post would be the third in a four part series about cholesterol. But, I must interject this reaction. The series will continue tomorrow.)
