The album is dead, long live playlists | Harriet Walker

The album is dead, long live playlists | Harriet Walker | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Harriet Walker: There’s plenty to mourn with the passing of music albums, but the instant gratification of digital playlists is now king

 

The rise of digital music and streaming has many crimes to answer for. Like a hardened assassin, it does what it has to and gets better at it all the time, seemingly unaware of the musicians and fans left in its wake. The latest victim, and perhaps the most depressing when it comes to the slow but steady bludgeoning of creativity within the field, is the album. Though fans cleave to it as a format, producers, presenters and industry pen-pushers know the writing is on the wall. Lana Del Rey’s latest topped the UK charts with only 48,000 in first-week sales under her belt.

LG G Watch Review and Giveaway

LG G Watch Review and Giveaway | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it

Google’s foray into the world of wearable technology isn’t a single smartwatch – it’s an entire operating system, dubbed Android Wear. The first of a likely long line of devices is LG’s G Watch. At present, only two Wear devices grace Google’s Play Store, the other: Samsung’s Gear Live. The Gear Live costs a little less at $199 and comes with an AMOLED screen, worse battery life and a heart-rate sensor. In other respects, the two devices appear as near clones of one another. While Motorola and HTC will introduce Wear devices in either the later Summer or Fall, the prices and launch days remain a mystery. HTC is rumored to offer better build quality and Motorola’s Moto 360 includes wireless Qi charging.

Stanford study shows how to power California with wind, water and sun

Stanford study shows how to power California with wind, water and sun | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
By Rob Jordan -

Stanford CA (SPX) Jul 25, 2014 Imagine a smog-free Los Angeles, where electric cars ply silent freeways, solar panels blanket rooftops and power plants run on heat from beneath the earth, from howling winds and from the blazing desert sun. A new Stanford study finds that it is technically and economically feasible to convert California's all-purpose energy infrastructure to one powered by clean, renewable energy.

Published in Energy, the plan shows the way to a sustainable, inexpensive and reliable energy supply in California that could create tens of thousands of jobs and save billions of dollars in pollution-related health costs.

"If implemented, this plan will eliminate air pollution mortality and global warming emissions from California, stabilize prices and create jobs - there is little downside," said Mark Z. Jacobson, the study's lead author and a Stanford professor of civil and environmental engineering.

Professor Ilan Pappé: Israel Has Chosen to be a "Racist Apartheid State" with U.S. Support

Professor Ilan Pappé: Israel Has Chosen to be a "Racist Apartheid State" with U.S. Support | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
As the Palestinian death toll tops 1,000 in Gaza, we are joined from Haifa by Israeli professor and historian Ilan Pappé. "I think Israel in 2014 made a decision that it prefers to be a racist apartheid state and not a democracy," Pappé says. "It still hopes that the United States will license this decision and provide it with the immunity to continue, with the necessary implication of such a policy vis-à-vis the Palestinians wherever they are." A professor of history and the director of the European Centre for Palestine Studies at the University of Exeter, Pappé is the author of several books, including most recently, "The Idea of Israel: A History of Power and Knowledge."

Self-cooling solar cells boost power, last longer

Self-cooling solar cells boost power, last longer | Discover Sigalon Valley - Where the Tags are the Topics | Scoop.it
Washington DC (SPX) Jul 23, 2014 -

Scientists may have overcome one of the major hurdles in developing high-efficiency, long-lasting solar cells-keeping them cool, even in the blistering heat of the noonday Sun. By adding a specially patterned layer of silica glass to the surface of ordinary solar cells, a team of researchers led by Shanhui Fan, an electrical engineering professor at Stanford University in California has found a way to let solar cells cool themselves by shepherding away unwanted thermal radiation.

The researchers describe their innovative design in the premiere issue of The Optical Society's (OSA) new open-access journal Optica.

Solar cells are among the most promising and widely used renewable energy technologies on the market today. Though readily available and easily manufactured, even the best designs convert only a fraction of the energy they receive from the Sun into usable electricity.
