Nothing burns itself into your mind quite as well as something that has bitten you on the other end.   With that in mind I wanted to share a recent experience I had with one of my favorite new devices in hopes of saving some of you future frustrations.

Scientists have studied that farming renewable energy in the Sahara Desert would improve the life of its population. They foresee that planting wind turbines and solar panel in the biggest hot desert in the world would supply electricity to the entire world. Results of the simulation: quantity of rainfall across the Sahara and around after implementation of the project.

After all this time and technological advancment, we still need to learn more about H2O (Photo via iStock)   You may think you know everything about water, thanks to middle school science classes. Scientists thought so too, but a team at New York University recently discovered new molecular properties of water that had previously gone unnoticed. Water is an efficient transporter of its own autoionization components, which are the charged particles, protons, and hydroxide ions created whe ...
