Be aware that when ripe, mushrooms tend to produce a lot of spores. These WILL make your dorm room closet a really dank place if you decide to grow there.

I strongly recommend using a space which is away from living areas for mushroom growing.

For all his anger, Trump couldn't even stay awake:

Trump appears to have fallen asleep in court again. It happened several times just now. His eyes were closed for extended periods and his head dropped down twice.

They cut the size, but not the price. Then they increase the price six months later.

The doxxing happened before a full jury was selected. People chosen later in the process have less information released.

It's a mix of different battery chemistries; various Lithium-based chemistries predominate, but there are several utility-scale batteries using iron chemistries. This will change over time as some of the heavier battery types become cheaper for stationary energy storage, and as a need for seasonal storage (instead of overnight) starts to be significant.

It was a question because the methane gas utilities tried to promote it as a means of creating social permission to continue extracting and burning fossil methane. Making the point that it's a bad idea is a way to push back against that.

silence7 OP ,

Most won't — the idea with third party candidates is to peel off a handful of votes, thereby swinging the election.

He's not even running as a Democrat. Once it became clear that Biden was going to get 80%+ of the vote in the Democratic primary, RFK Jr decided to run as an independent, but to try and trade on his name, rather than run on the pro-measles positions he's been pushing for the past couple decades.

silence7 OP ,

Despite that one staffer's bombast, the place where RFK Jr matters is probably in the swing states, rather than NY. Siphoning off a percentage point more Biden voters than Trump voters in one of those would have a pretty meaningful impact.

They're liquifing it for transport

The ride predates most US freeway construction — it was meant to serve as a vision for what an automobile-heavy society could look like.

Most electric heat pump hot water heaters have a slow-mode which uses the heat pump, and fills a large tank with hot water, and a fast-mode which uses a resistive heater when the tank runs out. I don't see why this situation is particularly different for larger buildings, except that they need a larger tank and an electrical supply which can deliver the needed wattage.

Cheapo landlord could of course install an undersized unit, as they can with any other key system.

silence7 OP Mod ,

It still amounts to "I'm heating up a big tank of water and supplying it to people on an as-needed basis." The article makes it clear that they're using several to supply the whole building:

Electric water boilers | These provide hot water for the building and are typically more energy efficient than gas boilers, which are common in New York City.

You definitely can do only heat pump, but adding resistive backup is cheap if you're already putting in new wiring anyways. So people do.

Per the article:

  • His uncle was on a military aircraft in WWII
  • The plane crashed in the ocean near an area historically inhabited by cannibals
  • The uncle most likely died in the crash
  • The uncle's body was never found
  • Nobody asked the cannibals if they ate him

Last time this kind of thing happened, Corn Pop turned out to be real

It's physically possible, though there is as-yet no evidence aside from family legend — Joe Biden was probably listening to what older cousins had to say, and it wouldn't surprise me if they made up a detail.

silence7 OP ,

Maybe even tax the billionaires and do it at the public expense...

The U.S. just changed how it manages a tenth of its land: Interior Department rule puts conservation and clean energy development on par with drilling, mining and resource extraction on federal lands ( wapo.st )

For comparison, the New York Times coverage

Try one of the newer induction stoves, and you won't look back.

silence7 OP Mod ,

Thing is: there isn't some other solution.

We know what needs to happen right now

silence7 OP ,

That's not so clear — Michael Cohen has already served prison time for his part in this, as others have done on a regular basis for similar crimes

Even if he doesn't end up serving time a criminal conviction would likely sway enough Americans to keep Trump out of office.
