Comments Off on The changing fabric of the American Flag

Made out of polyester and nylon today, the original flag was made out of wool, cotton or linen, with silk reserved for the most special occasions. Sadly, most flags are made outside of the US these days, and out of foreign-made materials. Read on to learn more about the American flag and how we can bring it back home again. image via Conal Gallagher

Martin Eberhard with a Tesla electric Roadster. Photo: Flickr , CC EV Forecast: Sunny, But Uncertain Martin Eberhard, one of the original co-founders of Tesla Motors in 2003 and now director at Volkswagen’s Electronics Research Laboratory (ERL), is predicting that that within the next 10 years, electric cars will have a range of 500 miles and more.
