Chris Christie is planning to launch his campaign Tuesday evening Mike Pence to launch campaign for president in Iowa June 7 | AP News Let's hope the crazy crowd has 10 or 20 debates; should be fun watching. Jerry Baumchen

  8. Hi Joe, Here you go: White Lightning (car) - Wikipedia White Zombie - Watch The World's Original Fastest Electric Car ( Jerry Baumchen
  9. Hi Bill, Re: is going to + could use + can use /=/ are using. Back in the '50's we were being told that nuclear power would be so cheap that we would no longer have power meters on our houses. Oops, that did not work out so great. The de-commissioning costs are enormous; and, those are the real costs that seem to go on forever. Just up the road from you is: San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station - Wikipedia Controversy continues over Edison's plans for on-site dry cask storage of the considerable amount of nuclear waste created during the facility's decades of operation. I am sure you know more about the problems/costs with this plant than I do. The problems/costs with on-site storage is a major problem here in the northwest with Hanford: Hanford Site - Wikipedia While I am a ret'd engineer, I will always be an engineer. I can only hope that, in the future, we will be able to make nukes such that they are financially possible; but, that must IMO include all costs. Today, you and I will have to agree to disagree on using nukes as being a good thing. Jerry Baumchen
  10. Hi Robert, And, how much of the waste that we have today, is being used again? Today, throughout the world, we are creating more nuclear waste than is being used for anything else. We cannot continue to do this. Jerry Baumchen
  11. Hi folks, This will be interesting to watch as it develops; if it develops: Brazil president proposes South America currency, as he hosts summit to rebuild regional bloc | AP News It seems to me that the Euro is doing quite well; what it was supposed to do. Well, other than the UK. Thoughts? Jerry Baumchen
  12. Hi folks, The future is closer than ever: Automakers are rushing to keep up with the global shift toward less polluting vehicles and to help in other ways to combat climate change. Toyota, Daimler Truck, Hino, Mitsubishi Fuso joining forces in ecological technology | AP News Daimler owns Freightliner, a local truck mfr. Back in the 60's, while in college, I worked in Freightliner's test lab; I was a part-time employee. I really liked that job. Jerry Baumchen
  13. Hi folks, Another good result: she yelled at police officers to bring out the California Democrat so the mob of Donald Trump supporters could hang her. Woman who threatened Nancy Pelosi with hanging during Capitol riot gets over 2 years in prison | AP News Jerry Baumchen
  14. Hi Errol, While most things in life have limits, IMO there is no limit to their stupidity. Jerry Baumchen
  15. Hi Keith, Re: It won't happen if they don't try. This, always this. The line 'It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all' comes from Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem In Memoriam:27, 1850: I hold it true, whate'er befall; I feel it, when I sorrow most; 'Tis better to have loved and lost Than never to have loved at all. If we do not try, we cannot accomplish anything. Jerry Baumchen
