Sugar-powered biobattery has 10 times the energy storage of lithium: Your smartphone might soon run on enzymes | ExtremeTech | Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it
As you probably know, from sucking down cans of Coke and masticating on candy, sugar -- glucose, fructose, sucrose, dextrose -- is an excellent source of energy.

What's the Matter With Twitter? Not What Twitter Thinks | Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo has 99 problems, and revenue growth ain't one. The company announced income of nearly $243 million for the previous quarter Wednesday, beating analyst estimates by more than $20 million.

It's our great pleasure to meet and talk to people like Jesse Row in putting this show together. Row is the executive director of the Alberta Energy Efficiency Alliance and it was through him that we learned about the virtuous cycle of energy efficiency. We don't get just adopt more energy efficient products out of happenstance, it's part of a process. Learn how that process works and how, if applied in Alberta, Canada's biggest carbon emitter could save a ton of money and get halfway to its 2020 greenhouse gas emission targets.
