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.

After some research he also realized the mathematical fractions were the same numbers as the Fibonacci sequence.

Chiang Mai, Thailand - Last week I discussed the value crisis of contemporary capitalism: the broken feedback loop between the productive publics who create exponentially increasing use value, and those who capture this value through social media - but do not return these income streams to the value "produsers". In other words, the current so-called "knowledge economy" is a sham and a pipe dream - because abundant goods do not fare well in a market economy. For the sake of the world's workers, who live in an increasingly precarious situation, is there a way out of this conundrum? Can we restore the broken feedback loop? Strangely enough, the answer may be found in the recent political movement that is Occupy, because along with " peer producing their political commons ", they also exemplified new business and value practices. These practices were, in fact, remarkably similar to the institutional ecology that is already practiced in producing free software and open hardware communities.

Watkins Glen State Park is the most famous of the Finger Lakes State Parks located on the edge of the village of Watkins Glen, New York, south of Seneca Lake in Schuyler County. The main feature of the park is the hiking trail that climbs up through the gorge, passing over and under waterfalls. The park has a lower part that is next to the village and an upper part that is open woodland. Watkins Glen State Park is in a 400-foot-deep narrow gorge cut through rock by a stream that was left hanging when glaciers of the Ice age deepened the Seneca valley, increasing the tributary stream gradient to create rapids and waterfalls wherever there were layers of hard rock.
These are the floating rings that harness the power of sunlight to raise the temperature of an average-sized pool by 3º - 4º F per week. They require less effort to maneuver and store than traditional tarp covers, and eliminate the need for energy-consuming electrical heaters when covering just 70% of the pool's surface. Each ring acts as a partial barrier, helping to slow evaporation of water and chemicals, in addition to reducing heat loss at night. Built with an integrated spring, each ring twists and folds for storage. See Ring Recommendations tab below or call Customer Service toll-free at 1-800-233-4800 to determine how many rings your pool requires. UV-resistant poly-vinyl.
This is the garden that rolls to and fro, creating a versatile mobile plant bed for a patio or sun room. The planter wheels easily on four smooth-rolling casters, enabling gardeners to position plants for optimal sun during the day, or to relocate delicate seedlings indoors on a chilly night. The polyethylene garden bed features double-wall construction that slows the transfer of heat to prevent soil from drying out. The durable material also resists scratches, dents, and fading from exposure to the sun's damaging UV rays.

"I am thinking about something much more important than bombs. I am thinking about computers." - John von Neumann, 1946
In the last two years, everyone flying on a commercial airline has stepped up to an airline's ticket counter and heard the agent recite a familiar litany. The monologue goes, "has your bag been unattended; have you accepted gifts from a stranger; can I see your identification please?" The traveler docilely murmurs answers, and produces a driver's license or some equivalent. As a die-hard Constitutionalist, I believe that we still have an absolute, unfettered, God-given right to travel from point A to point B without permission from the state -- in the air, as well as on land.
