“Hillary will be our next President and she will be a great one,” Tsakopoulos said at a private gala in California this past weekend.
Asked if this was confirmed by Clinton or whether it’s his personal view, he replied, “I talk to her husband, and he confirmed it. She will run.”

Some of my friends in Beijing have said the air burns their eyes and lungs. Here’s a picture of my colleague with his double-barreled air mask. Intense. Note he’s wearing a trash bag to protect his suit from the dirty air when he goes out.
I was reading the other night that the particulate pollution in Beijing is over 600 PPM and has recently climbed in areas to almost 900. The WHO says that 25 PPM is the highest safe level, and the US EPA says over 300 in a US city would be a national crisis.
Thing is though, much of the smog comes from factories and coal plants which aren’t even in the city, and so in areas outside Beijing may have smog levels that are even higher.
all the chinese kids i know are or have been pack a day smokers and normally that would be alarming but i’m pretty sure that breathing through a lit cigarette is actually significantly healthier than breathing unfiltered chinese city air
Oh, this? Just some teenage girls from Africa who invented a urine-powered generator.
How’s this for an innovative startup: four African girls — the eldest of whom is just fifteen years old — have worked together to invent a generator that’s powered by urine. The group presented their creation at this year’s Maker Faire Africa, and it’s so freaking brilliant it makes me want travel back in time and punch 15-year-old me right in the solar plexus.
The Next Web lays out how it works:
- Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which cracks the urea into nitrogen, water, and hydrogen.
- The hydrogen goes into a water filter for purification, which then gets pushed into the gas cylinder.
- The gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, which is used to remove the moisture from the hydrogen gas.
- This purified hydrogen gas is pushed into the generator.
1 Liter of urine gives you 6 hours of electricity.
Here’s hoping these girls can get the funding they need to take this idea to new heights. Even if they don’t, we’ve got a feeling they’re going places.

Did you know that giant Pacific octopuses get “attached” to their aquarists—in a good way? These intelligent animals recognize our staff and may even embrace them after a long absence.
