I am Ayşegül Güvenenler from Turkey. Nuclear energy has been a debate subject in Turkey for years. Every year the government proposes a nuclear energy project and draw back after discussions. Because of the fact that Turkey’s energy is foreign-dependant it is important to use our energy, I understand this but possible hazards of nuclear power outweigh the profits. Also I do not accept the arguments about “clean” energy. It is too risky and waste of nuclear plants are impossible to get rid off without damage.
Unfortunately, Fukushima showed the reality to the world again.
Kudos to the US government for trying to spur small business innovation by offering up to 150K for research projects that involve education technology (http://bit.ly/z6HxNm). But one look at the Dept of Education application process (http://bit.ly/xFFTbd) and you’ve got to wonder — is it worth all the trouble? I mean it’s long, byzantine and opaque, to put it mildly. Will this really accomplish its goal of attracting some of the most qualified innovators that we’ve got? Maybe the government needs to start thinking even more like the private sector and less like, well, bureaucrats. I would much rather see the feds put on a pitching event like http://sxswedu.com/launchedu. To attract talent you’ve got use methods that are current or you just end up funding people who know how to write grants (or know how to hire people to write grants for them!).
Violent ‘Russian Spring’ protests could follow a Vladimir Putin victory
Russia’s presidential elections hold the potential to spark violent protests, but are unlikely to trigger a revolution, Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov told a Toronto audience Tuesday.
“You must not talk of a ‘Russian Spring’ but of ‘Russian Springs,’ I don’t know how many,” Mr. Nemtsov told the Economic Club of Canada. “Our goal is to lead to democracy and freedom and modernization in Russia, but it will take time.”
Hardcore??? Nothing is as hardcore as death metal- but apparently “the hardest hardcore is Angolan hardcore”. As an aftermath to the bombings of the Angolan city Huambo, back in 1998, the death metal scene attracted a crowd of metal heads dedicated to the music genre which spoke of the previous battles and wars experienced in the country -“a scream of revolt”- is what hardcore death metal is all about in Angola.
The documentary film Death Metal Angola is directed by Jeremy Xido and produced by CABULA6 and Coalition Films, it’s about the first ever national rock concert in Angola, a project aimed to collect and expand rock music nation wise, covering the contemporary rock music scene. I can’t wait to see the complete version planned for release in 2012.
Death Metal, direct from Angola…
