Comments Off on Nuclear Batteries Could be Longer Lasting and More Efficient

Batteries are essential items for everyday life , but they are notoriously bad for the environment and hard to dispose of, but researchers think that nuclear batteries could change that. A team of scientists and researchers from the University of Missouri believe they have created a long-lasting and efficient nuclear battery thanks to a new water-based solution. They hope that the new battery would be able to be used in everything from cars to future manned space flight.

India now joins the European Union and Israel in banning both animal testing of cosmetics and the importation of animal-tested products. The new ruling from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare goes into effect on November 13, 2014.

California Bullet Train Project Will No Longer Get Environmental Exception

Comments Off on California Bullet Train Project Will No Longer Get Environmental Exception

California  Governor Jerry Brown has courted controversy for protecting the state’s bullet train project from environmental regulations, but it seems he’s now done a U-turn saying he  plans to withdraw his proposal to do so. The 360 seems odd considering that in the past, he even went so far as to propose modifications to the  California Environmental Quality Act  in order to start construction of the high-speed rail project. The entire plan has drawn criticism over mounting costs, which are rumoured to  total nearly $100 billion  and some officials have even said that the rail system, which would run between several major metro areas and through the Central Valley, would struggle to make its costs back. However the project is still going ahead and construction is set to start this December.

Infinyte Electric Boat: Ugly, But It Grows On You

Comments Off on Infinyte Electric Boat: Ugly, But It Grows On You

My first reaction upon seeing the Infinyte i4 electric boat was “why is it so ugly?” It looks less like a boat than a floating hot tub. But the longer you look, the more it makes sense; it has an efficient catamaran hull, and it’s not exactly designed for water skiing.
