Sustainable Jet Fuel On A New Flight Path

An efficient technique for turning waste plant material waste into jet fuel has been announced, coincidentally a few days after a paper measured how far we have already come on this journey. Air travel is less than 5 percent of global greenhouse emissions today, but its share is expected to rise like a plane at liftoff. Not only are more people flying more often, but larger sources of emissions are shrinking, or expected to start soon. Shorter flights can shift to high-speed rail, but for intercontinental travel we need a way to make carbon-neutral jet fuel. Existing options, such as last year’s demonstration flight across the Pacific, don’t look likely to scale well, but Professor Ning Li of the Dalian …

DOJ not sending ‘principal conclusions’ of Mueller report to Hill today

(CNN)Attorney General William Barr is not sending the “principal conclusions” of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report to lawmakers Saturday, multiple congressional sources and a Justice Department official told CNN. The “principal conclusions” that Barr promised lawmakers will be derived from the special counsel’s report — a distillation of the main takeaways from the report, rather than a word-for-word summary. The expectation, according to the official, continues to be that the document sent to Congress with the conclusions will also be made public. Barr’s submission to Congress and the public is being eagerly anticipated on both sides of Pennsylvania Avenue, with lawmakers and the White House waiting to learn more about Mueller’s findings. But the waiting game will continue for at …

5 ‘Bachelor’ Alums Who Started Legit Businesses After The Show Betches

1. Kaitlyn Bristowe’s Scrunchie Line, Dew Kaitlyn Bristowe was one of the coolest Bachelorettes we’ve ever had. She was chill, down-to-earth, and not a thirst-monster. Claps to you, Kaitlyn! Not to mention, she also had the best group of guys I’ve ever seen on the show. (Umm has anyone looked at Hannah B.’s guys? Yikes.) Unfortunately, her three-year relationship with Shawn didn’t end up working out, but she’s still as relevant as ever. She was smart enough to build a business that could last, even when her relationship couldn’t, so she started a scrunchie line. What I like about this business move is that it’s on-brand and authentic. Kaitlyn was always wearing scrunchies, and now that they’re a trendy fashion …

Would A Third Of Europeans Really Prefer A Robot Prime Minister?

After three years of “Brexit” chatter and still no sense of direction, it is perhaps little surprise that many in the UK would hand over the job of government to intelligent robots. Indeed, according to European Tech Insights 2019 presented by IE University, Spain, as many as a third of Europeans would choose AI above their fellow human when it comes to making the tough decisions that come with running a country. This is based on the responses of 2,576 adults aged 18 to 99 from France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, and the UK – an arguably pretty limited survey pool, but more on that later. The purpose of the exercise was to find out how the European public feel about the technological changes …

Why Joe Biden’s ‘inevitability’ campaign may be a mistake

Washington (CNN)Joe Biden isn’t running for president. Yet. Major endorsements. An early VP pick. Both are clear signs that what Biden wants to do — from the second he enters the race — is make clear that the field is really him and then everyone else. That he isn’t just one of the many candidates running, but that he’s the heavy favorite. Polling, generally speaking, bears out the idea that Biden starts the race on top. A new CNN-SSRS national poll showed Biden leading the field with 28%, followed by Bernie Sanders at 20%, Kamala Harris at 12% and Beto O’Rourke at 11%. No other candidate received double-digit support.
