Bookmarks for November 4th
When I’m not blogging, I’m browsing. Here are sites and pages that I bookmarked on November 2nd:
- Researchers to perform sex change operation on papaya: The grant will fund basic research on the papaya sex chromosomes and will lead to the development of a papaya that produces only hermaphrodite offspring, an advance that will enhance papaya health while radically cutting papaya growers’ production costs and their use of fertilizers and water.
- $15 million stimulus award creates national consortium for revealing scientific resources: A consortium will build a national research resource discovery network that will allow biomedical scientists to quickly find previously invisible but potentially valuable research resources (e.g., technologies, equipment, cell and tissue banks, training opportunities).
- Watts up in Kahuku: At least two companies are setting their sights on the wind-swept ridge of Kahuku near Turtle Bay Resort to develop wind power that would supply Hawaiian Electric Co.
- Sopogy Releases the World’s First Commercially Available Rooftop MicroCSP System: SopoFlare is the first commercially available Concentrating Solar Power technology designed specifically for rooftop installations with a unique, easy mounting and fastening system.
- Firms that donate to Inouye receive his earmarks: In the Senate version of the fiscal year 2010 defense appropriations bill, Sen. Inouye is sponsoring almost three-dozen provisions that would spend more than $200 million on projects in Hawaii that the Pentagon generally does not want.
