7th Grader mimics Nature

13 year old copies Nature to Improve Solar Performance Thirteen year old Aidan Dwyer was walking in the woods in Upstate New York in the winter and noticed a spiral pattern to tree branches. Aidan realized the tree branches and leaves had a mathematical spiral pattern that could be shown as a fraction. After some research he also realized the mathematical fractions were the same numbers as the Fibonacci sequence. "On the oak tree, the Fibonacci fraction is 2/5, which means that the spiral takes five branches to spiral two times around the trunk to complete one pattern. Other trees with the Fibonacci leaf arrangement are the elm tree (1/2); the beech (1/3); the willow (3/8) and the almond tree (5/13) 7th Grader mimics Nature

Japanese breakthrough will make wind power cheaper than nuclear NOTE: Some major wind projects like the proposed TWE Carbon Valley project in Wyoming are already pricing in significantly lower than coal power -- $80 per MWh for wind versus $90 per MWh for coal -- and that is without government subsidies using today's wind turbine technology. The International Clean Energy Analysis (ICEA) gateway estimates that the U.S. possesses 2.2 million km2 of high wind potential (Class 3-7 winds) — about 850,000 square miles of land that could yield high levels of wind energy. This makes the U.S. something of a Saudi Arabia for wind energy, ranked third in the world for total wind energy potential.

The 10 Types of Writers' Block (and How to Overcome Them)

The 10 Types of Writers' Block (and How to Overcome Them) #4 was a really common event in my undergrad screenwriting classes (where it was commonly called the Page 70 Problem or the Act 2 Dead Zone or some other ridiculous name). It is really where outlining-as-you-go can prevent problems. For instance, I might have a ten point outline for the whole story and as I catch up to various points I may go back over the outline and flesh out points with another outline. If a scene is really tricky, my outline might be as specific as three points for five pages. But something that is really simple may never get more than a "this happens". The most important writing tips I've ever gotten: Write when you're good (I'm best first thing in the morning).
