Charge your electric car with clean fossil free solar electricity around the clock | ciberpocket | Scoop.it
Solelia Greentech AB rents and sells solar powered charging stations, so that your organization can provide charging of electric cars with completely clean electricity. With an advantageous lease no capital needs to be tied up.

The electricity that is not used for charging when the sun shines is stored in a special solar account on Solbanken ™ (The Sun Bank) which can then be used at any time of the day, any day of the year.

The user can easily see how much solar electricity has been used and how much is left. Owners of charging stations can integrate their systems with Solbanken ™ to provide a basis for the billing of their parking customers’ consumption of electricity.

Simple plug and play solution. From investigating the placement to completed installation, Solelia is the easy & safe solution that requires only your interest in our clean solar solutions.

Germany’s Latest Export Is Fifty Shades of Gross

Germany’s Latest Export Is Fifty Shades of Gross | ciberpocket | Scoop.it
The film Wetlands (Feuchtgebiete), which opens in select American theaters on Sept. 5, may be the most obscene non-pornographic movie the Germans have ever made—an impressive feat for a country that boasts the oeuvre of Rainer Werner Fassbinder, who was as famous for full-frontal male nudity (often his own) as he was for his biting characterizations of the Federal Republic. But even the risqué The Marriage of Maria Braun is basically The Sound of Music compared to Wetlands, an adaptation of Charlotte Roche’s mega-bestselling book of the same name, which I like to call Fifty Shades of Gross.

Outside Lisbon, a Verdant World of Castles and Palaces | ciberpocket | Scoop.it
No matter how well it begins or ends, every fairy tale has a villain. In my storybook adventure in Sintra, a Portuguese town about 20 miles west of Lisbon, it was the hands of the clock. Roaming the pristine grounds of castles high in the hills, I wished that time would stand still.

Richard III Really Ate (and Drank) Like a King

Richard III Really Ate (and Drank) Like a King | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

Richard III ruled England for just two years and two months before he was killed in battle in 1485 at age 32. And yet, during his short time wearing the crown, Richard certainly ate like a king, a new study finds.

 

The wine flowed generously at King Richard's table, and plates of game birds and fresh fish were plentiful, according to an analysis of his teeth and bones, published online in the Journal of Archaeological Science on Aug. 16.

Sound travels as vibrations through the air and whatever it hits vibrates too. If this is your ear then specialized hair cells translate these movements into something you can hear but for pretty much anything else these vibrations are simply lost.

Teaching Is Not a Business

Teaching Is Not a Business | ciberpocket | Scoop.it

Today’s education reformers believe that schools are broken and that business can supply the remedy. Some place their faith in the idea of competition. Others embrace disruptive innovation, mainly through online learning. Both camps share the belief that the solution resides in the impersonal, whether it’s the invisible hand of the market or the transformative power of technology.

Why NASA Studies the Ultraviolet Sun

Why NASA Studies the Ultraviolet Sun | ciberpocket | Scoop.it
You cannot look at the sun without special filters, and the naked eye cannot perceive certain wavelengths of sunlight. Solar physicists must consequently rely on spacecraft that can observe this invisible light before the atmosphere absorbs it. Here's how NASA does it.

Last Call ✏ The end of the printed newspaper | ciberpocket | Scoop.it
Contrary to the contrived ignorance of media reporters, the future of the daily newspaper is one of the few certainties in the current landscape: Most of them are going away, in this decade. (If you work at a paper and you don’t know what’s happened to your own circulation or revenue in the last few years, now might be a good time to ask.) We’re late enough in the process that we can even predict the likely circumstance of its demise.

This Labor Day weekend, we'll have a ReadaThing launching at midnight UTC betweenThursday, Aug. 28th and Friday, Aug. 29th (that's 8pm Eastern on Thursday). The read-a-thon will end 96 hours later, at 7pm Eastern on Monday, Sept. 1st.

 

ReadaThing participants can read whatever they want, wherever they want, whenever they want.
