When you have an economic system, the only voting slips that really get things and get things done are the voting slips in your wallet; not the ones you get handed in the polling station. Politicians are the mere lackeys of the monied. Simple.

Ultra Shocking Video about Lorry Blind-Spots

Ultra Shocking Video about Lorry Blind-Spots | Occupy Duvet | Scoop.it
TfL (Transport for London) have made a video showing just how blind lorry drivers are in some circumstances. This is great evidence for the argument that heavy-goods vehicles and bikes shouldn't ha...
Occupy Duvet's insight:
 If anything I would say that lorries should be obliged to install a third mirror so that they CAN see this blindspot. But in the meantime, if you cycle, this is eye opening!

SolarSinter Project - How to 'print' objects using only sand and sunlight

In a world increasingly concerned with questions of energy production and raw material shortages, this project explores the potential of desert manufacturing, where energy and material occur in abundance.

In this experiment sunlight and sand are used as raw energy and material to produce glass objects using a 3D printing process, that combines natural energy and material with high-tech production technology.

Solar-sintering aims to raise questions about the future of manufacturing and triggers dreams of the full utilisation of the production potential of the world's most efficient energy resource - the sun. Whilst not providing definitive answers, this experiment aims to provide a point of departure for fresh thinking.

"Over the last 12 months, the tech industry added 60,000 jobs, and 36,000 -- or 60% -- of those positions went to women, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Usually, men make up 70% to 80% of the new hires, but according to the BLS, the tide seems to have turned in the last year.Suddenly, tech firms are hiring more women than men.
