The Solar Roadway Panel (TM) is still on the drawing board, but it does promise lots of ambitious features. For instance, it will have smart LED lights to serve as lane markers or spell out messages. It will sense animals on the roadway and warn drivers (deer totally love the idea). It will be heated so as to prevent icing. You can stop and plug your electric car into it if you ever run out of power. And oh so much more.
i met this woman downtown yesterday at the rescue mission. she sleeps on the concrete. she doesn’t know how to go dumpster diving properly. she’s new on the streets. she used to be a waitress. she is 32 years old. she is scared. she is alone. her father hates her.
i gave her a sweater. i sat down with her because she was holding her head in her hands. i told her she had beautiful eyes. she said ‘you do too’ i grabbed her hands and asked if i could pray with her. as soon as i began… she fell into my lap and cried on my hands. she looked up at me and said, ”take a picture of this” ”of what?” ”life”
Physicists discover that the structure of a brain cell is the same as the entire universe.
One is only micrometers wide. The other is billions of light-years across. One shows neurons in a mouse brain. The other is a simulated image of the universe. Together they suggest the surprisingly similar patterns found in vastly different natural phenomena. (David Constantine)
