    Most of us know we own too much stuff. We feel the weight and burden of our clutter. We tire of cleaning and managing and organizing.

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 9: 1TB of smartphone storage now a reality (at a price - $1600)

    About $1,600. That's how much it will cost you to have a Note 9 with 1TB of storage. Samsung's new Galaxy Note 9 comes in two configurations -- a 128GB model with 6GB of RAM for $999.99, and a 512GB model with 8GB of RAM for... wait for it... $1,249.99. Now that 512GB model already offers twice as much storage capacity as the higher-end iPhone X (and much more RAM, for only $100 extra). But where's the fun in only having half a terabyte of storage? That only allows you to store about 2,300 movies, or some 93,000 photos. We...

Empa researchers have succeeded in doubling the electrochemical stability of water with a special saline solution. This takes us one step closer to using the technology commercially. In the quest to find safe, low-cost batteries for the future, eventually we have to ask ourselves a question: Why not simply use water as...
  • Australian Gun Culture: “Safe Storage” and Registration: Part Four

    Donald Eykamp in farm shop. Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- The Australian gun law requires two things that are often cited as “common sense” by those without an understanding of everyday gun use.They are universal gun registration and “safe storage”.  Both have been weaponized against gun owners in Australia. They are an object lesson of what to avoid for those fighting for the right to arms in America and elsewhere. Registration does nothing to prevent crime. Both New Zealand and Canada had extensive gun registration schemes similar to Australia's. Both concluded that gun registration is costly and not effective in preventing crime....

    The Chicago Tribune’s editorial board implored President Donald Trump Tuesday to clean up the nuclear waste storage debacle left by former President Barack Obama. Obama helped former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid to derail plans to store nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. Without Yucca, nuclear power plants don’t have a permanent location to store spent fuel and left the federal government with $50 billion in legal liabilities. “Many people in Nevada didn’t want the waste, no matter how safe or isolated the storage facility may be,” the editorial board wrote. “It was the ultimate NIMBY [Not In My Backyard]...

    Perhaps, like me, you use that drawer located underneath your stove for storing pans, cookie sheets, and muffin tins. Unfortunately, we've all been doing it wrong, according to the good people who manufacture stoves. While it does serve as a great spot for all of your back-up cooking tools, it's actually meant to be a warming drawer. You may notice a message printed on the inside of the drawer or in some sort of owner's manual that says something like this: "The warming drawer is designed to keep hot foods at serving temperature. Always start with hot food. Cold or...
  • Enormous 2 TB USB Drive Can Hold Everything You Need and More

    Kingston Digital has announced what it claims is the world's highest capacity USB flash drive, which comes in both 1 terabyte (TB) and 2 TB flavors. Both probably much bigger than you could ever really need. The Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate Generation Terabyte (GT) isn't exactly small. As you can tell in the picture above, where the actual body of the drive dwarfs the USB part, it's a bit bigger than, say, your regular issue SanDisk. But that's still smaller than Amazon's new portable storage device, the Seagate Duet, which can only (a relative term here) hold 1 TB.
  • The Billion Barrel Oil Swindle: 80% Of U.S. Oil Reserves Are Unaccounted-For

    Oilprice.com ^ | 10-10-2016 | Art
    U.S. crude oil storage is filling up with unaccounted-for oil. There is a lot more oil in storage than the amount that can be accounted for by domestic production and imports. That’s a big problem since oil prices move up or down based on the U.S. crude oil storage report. Oil stocks in inventory represent surplus supply. Increasing or decreasing inventory levels generally push prices lower or higher because they indicate trends toward longer term over-supply or under-supply.

    The full disk encryption used to safeguard information stored on Google Android devices can be broken, an independent researcher has found. Gal Beniamini spent several years analysing the TrustZone platform found on Qualcomm chipsets, and utilised previously gained knowledge to run code that is able to extract the encryption keys used to scramble stored data on Android devices. The researcher discovered that encryption keys derived from the TrustZone feature could be extracted by software and cracked by brute force outside the Android devices, thus bypassing security mechanisms that limit the number of password guesses that can be made.

    TOKYO (Reuters) - Tucked away in a quiet residential street in Kawasaki city in Japan is a refurbished workshop with a plain silver exterior and black draped windows that residents describe as creepy. The business inside, Sousou, is one of Japan's latest so-called corpse hotels, a camouflaged morgue used to store some of Japan's mounting pile of bodies waiting for a spot in one of the nation's overworked crematoriums. “Crematories need to be built, but there isn’t any space to do so and that is creating funeral refugees," said Hisao Takegishi, who opened the business in 2014.

[I need to apologize for missing last week's installment, I had some family issues come up that needed my attn all weekend long] So we started on the need of looking at a long term food supply/ies, because the stores are going to go bare very fast & chances of resupply maybe very dim.

    ISIS militants in Libya continue to attack key oil infrastructure in the country. The two large oil export terminals at Es Sider and Ras Lanuf came under ISIS attacks on January 4-6. Some oil storage tanks exploded after suffering damage from machine gun fire. NASA just published some shocking photos that clearly show the smoke plumes from the oil storage tanks are visible by satellite. The smoke blew east and northeast, blanketing Libya’s Mediterranean Coast. News reports suggest that at least five oil storage tanks are burning, each thought to have the capacity to hold 420,000 to 460,000 barrels of...

    Storage. It's not a sexy topic. But everyone uses it in some way or another. You have iPhones, you have computers. Everyone knows how important a person's data is. But it doesn't just "disappear." Or does it? New research suggests that newer solid-state hard drives, which are faster and offer better performance, are vulnerable to an inherent flaw -- they lose data when they're left dormant in storage for periods of time where the temperature isn't properly regulated. The worrying factor is that the period of time can be weeks, months, but even in some circumstances -- just a few...

    The bodies of up to four infants have been found in a storage locker in Winnipeg, Canada, authorities say. Police responded to a call from an employee at the storage facility on Monday and discovered the decomposed remains inside. Tests on the unidentified bodies have yet to take place. Investigators are speaking with "a number of individuals", they say, but the remains do not appear linked to any infants previously reported missing. Police spokesman Eric Hofley told Canadian media the finding was "tragic beyond belief".

    Energy Information Administration ^ | March 13, 2014 | Energy Information Administration
    A winter of prolonged, widespread, bitter cold weather throughout much of the United States led to a record-breaking natural gas withdrawal season in 2014, bringing inventories of natural gas to a 11-year low. EIA's Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO) forecasts a robust injection season (April-October) with nearly 2,500 billion cubic feet (Bcf) added to storage as operators seek to rebuild inventory levels. The projected inventory level at the end of the current withdrawal season at the end of March results from a record winter withdrawal of 2,851 Bcf. Demand driven by cold weather has played a major role in driving this...
