California Prepares For An Eclipse Of Its Solar Power

Spectators around the country are gearing up, eclipse glasses at the ready, for the solar eclipse on Monday. But another group — perhaps more anxious than eager — is preparing as well: the people who run California's electric grid. California is home to almost half of all the solar power in the country. So even a partial loss of the sun will mean a major dip in the energy supply. "We're doing a lot of coordination, a lot of preparation," says Deane Lyon, a manager at the California...

Do Laptops Help Learning? A Look At The Only Statewide School Laptop Program

It was the year 2000 and Maine's governor at the time, Angus King, was excited about the Internet. The World Wide Web was still relatively young but King wanted every student in the state to have access to it. "Go into history class and the teacher says, 'Open your computer. We're going to go to rome.com and we're going to watch an archaeologist explore the Catacombs this morning in real time.' What a learning tool that is!" Fast-forward a couple of years and that dream became a reality....

50 Years Later, Yusuf/Cat Stevens Reworks A Lost Song

From 1978 to 2006, Cat Stevens was absent from the secular music world, a long-but-temporary retirement motivated by his conversion to Islam. In the decade since his return, he's sounded musically reinvigorated in songs that only magnify the philosophical reflection that's marked his music since the beginning. Stevens, who's long since changed his name to Yusuf Islam but now uses both names interchangeably, has spent the last decade performing both old and new material. When he played the...

Waste Of Thyme: Why Do We Have To Buy More Herbs Than Recipes Call For?

When was the last time you used the entire container of fresh herbs you bought at the store? Never? Me, too. Every time a recipe calls for 1-2 tablespoons of freshly chopped sprigs, I head to a supermarket and reach for a plastic container holding at least three times as much as I need. A few days later, I'm standing by the trash can observing a moment of silence before I discard a plastic coffin of wasted, withered basil. I know I'm not alone; my friends have sent me all-caps text messages...

The Best Item In An Astronaut's Care Package? Definitely The Ice Cream

A SpaceX craft docked at the International Space Station on Wednesday carrying more than 6,400 pounds of lab equipment and supplies for crew members living there. But perhaps the most eagerly awaited cargo on the resupply mission may also be its most perishable: ice cream. We all remember astronaut ice cream , those little dehydrated bricks of neopolitan.
