Biodiesel Tax Credit CoSponsors Still Needed

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) needs growers at the state level to contact their members of the U.S. House of Representatives and urge them to co-sponsor the House and Senate biodiesel tax credit bills. Recently, Rep. Kristi Noem (R-SD) introduced H.R. 2383 and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) introduced S. 944, to extend the biodiesel tax credit and restructure it from a blender’s to a producer’s credit. The House bill currently has six co-sponsors and the Senate bill has 15 co-sponsors. The names of the current co-sponsors can be seen here and here.To date, 46 letters were sent, and there is still time to take action through the Soy Action Center on this important issue.The bill would provide a three-year extension (2017-19) of the biodiesel tax credit and shift it from a blender’s to a production credit to further promote domestic biodiesel production.In previous years, more than 35 House members have co-sponsored biodiesel tax credit legislation and/or signed letters of support. Numbers need to match or exceed that for co-sponsors this year.last_img read more

Killzone 3 singleplayer demo available February 15

first_imgIf you’re eager to play Killzone 3 as soon as possible, then there’s two dates you need to keep in mind: February 8 and February 15.A single player demo of the game is going to be released on both those dates. If you subscribe to PlayStation Plus then you can download it February 8. For the rest of the PS3-owning community, you’ll have to wait until February 15 to get it.Regardless of the date, there will be two versions of the demo to choose between. The first is your standard 2D game that is the right choice for anyone with a typical LCD display. If you happen to own a 3D-capable TV, though, there is a separate version of the demo just for you. The 2D demo has an added extra in the form of split-screen co-op, so it’s definitely the better of the two demos for the majority of gamers.As for what the demo offers, gameplay is set on the Icy Incursion level. Beyond that we don’t know specifically what you mission will be beyond killing enemies. What we do know is you will get to try out the tweaked aiming and movement controls as well as the brand new Brutal Melee attacks. If you own PlayStation Move you’ll also be able to take advantage of motion controls in the game.The full game is set to release on February 22.Read more at PlayStation.Bloglast_img read more

Interplanetary precision laser could reach to Mars and beyond

first_img More information: Yijiang Chen, et al. “Active laser ranging over planetary distances with millimeter accuracy.” Applied Physics Letters 102, 241107 (2013). DOI: 10.1063/1.4810906 ( —Currently, precision laser ranging is limited to the Earth-Moon distance. These systems are based on passive laser ranging, so that the signal deteriorates as 1/R4 over distance R. In a new study, physicists have designed a system that has a range thousands of times this distance due to the fact that it is based on active laser ranging, where the signal deteriorates as only 1/R2. The new system also has the potential to achieve sub-millimeter accuracy, yielding an overall performance improvement that is more than three orders of magnitude better than today’s state-of-the-art space ranging systems. Explore further Birnbaum explained that the laser itself is not any more powerful than those in use today.”The lasers themselves do not need to be very powerful,” he said. “Commercially available lasers have enough pulse energy, and the light intensity as it leaves the transmitter can be low enough that it is even eye-safe. The key is to have a very sensitive receiver and a method to pick out the ‘signal’ photons from all the background light.”The scientists tested the approach with lab experiments and field testing on Earth. They measured deviations in actual distance of no more than 0.14 mm, well below the goal of 1 mm precision. Although fluctuations due to atmospheric turbulence in Earth’s atmosphere will add a small amount of error, the scientists think that this error can be limited to less than 1 mm.The biggest challenges to realizing the long-range, high-precision laser include synchronizing the transceivers and overcoming a background of stray light. The researchers plan to overcome these challenges by using a new synchronization scheme involving interplanetary laser communications, along with using short pulses with a low repetition rate. In the future, they’d like to test the system on a somewhat larger scale.”Having demonstrated this technique in the lab and between two terminals in the field, we’d like to next perform ranging between a transceiver mounted on an airplane and one on the ground,” Birnbaum said. “Then we could move on to ranging between a ground terminal and a spacecraft.”This giant leap in laser ranging could have many applications. One of the first may be to solve the puzzle of the composition of Mars’ interior. Since the 1970s, scientists have been trying to find out if the interior is liquid or solid, but their attempts have been thwarted due to limitations of RF ranging precision. If the new laser ranging approach were applied to a future mission to Mars, particularly Mars Landers, it has the potential to resolve this open question.Interplanetary precision laser ranging could also enable new tests of fundamental physics, including tests of the equivalence principle, the apparent acceleration of the expanding universe, and the possible existence of extra dimensions. The laser system could also enable tests of gravity, which could lead to the discovery of a violation or extension of general relativity, or the presence of an additional long-range interaction. Finally, the laser system could enable various tests to be performed on the planets and other solar system bodies, which could shed light on their evolution, atmospheres, oceans, and ring material. These measurements are currently based on RF ranging techniques, which have limited precision. © 2013 All rights reserved. Journal information: Applied Physics Letters Citation: Interplanetary precision laser could reach to Mars and beyond (2013, July 12) retrieved 18 August 2019 from The scientists, Yijiang Chen, Kevin M. Birnbaum, and Hamid Hemmati at the California Institute of Technology’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, have published their paper on the long-range, high-precision laser system in a recent issue of Applied Physics Letters.”In principle, this approach could be scaled up to any interplanetary distance by increasing the size of the telescopes,” Birnbaum told “We calculated that ranging from Earth to Mars or Jupiter should be achievable with quite modest telescopes of 1 m in diameter on Earth and 15 cm on the spacecraft.”In the new laser ranging scheme, there is one transceiver at each end of the distance to be measured. Each transceiver transmits and receives laser pulses. The pulses are time tagged when transmitted and when received, and the time it takes the pulses to travel between transceivers is used to measure the distance between the transceivers. As the scientists explain, having these “active transceivers” is key to the long-distance range.”Radio frequency (RF) techniques are limited by uncertainties in the intervening medium that can slow down the radio wave by a variable amount,” Birnbaum said. “The effects of the medium—that the gap between the spacecraft and the ground terminal is not a completely empty vacuum—are smaller at optical frequencies.”Compared to current optical technologies, the key is that we use an active transceiver. Currently, optical ranging is done by bouncing light off of a passive target, a reflector. This is very effective for ranges up to the Earth-Moon distance, but it is simply not reasonable for interplanetary distances because the planets are thousands of times farther than the Moon. The amount of light falls as 1/R4, so the signal would get trillions of times weaker if you tried to use the same passive system to measure the range of the planets. We use active transceivers with lasers at both ends, so each end can see a much brighter signal.” Space-time diagram of active laser ranging between the Earth and a planet. In order to achieve long-distance laser ranging, the system uses active transceivers with lasers at both ends, so each end can see a much brighter signal than with passive transceivers.

Profile Wang of China hit hard by inflation

first_img“So our net worth goes up,” says Wang, “but our savings goes down.”Millions of Chinese have had a similarly jarring experience. The value of their homes and other assets has soared over the years, even during the financial crisis when households in other countries lost trillions of dollars of wealth.In 2009, the Chinese government unleashed a flood of loans from state-owned banks. While most major economies contracted that year, China ended up growing 14 percent. But the government stimulus came with a cost: a surge in inflation in key goods over the next two years. Food prices, for instance, rose more than 9 percent both years, according to FactSet, a data provider.Wang, married with two children, once owned a restaurant in Shijiazhuang, 200 miles southwest of Beijing, but closed it in the late `90s when it got harder to make a profit. Hoping for less stress and more job security, he took a job at a government-owned hotel. His wife went to work for a state company. They earn less than they might at private companies but have the security of health insurance and pensions.Wang dabbled in stocks once, but the Chinese market is plagued by frequent downturns, and he lost about about 20,000 yuan ($3,270) in one of them, a fifth of his investment. He says it is “impossible” to make money in Chinese stocks, and he’ll never buy them again. He would like to add to his savings, but says his and his wife’s monthly income of 8,000 yuan ($1,300) leaves them nothing to put away for the future.That makes them unusual among Chinese families, who save an average 35 percent of their incomes. They have to in a society with few social services or pensions. Families save so they’ll have money for medical emergencies and to pay for school fees and retirement.Despite his struggles, though, Wang is optimistic.“Life is not bad, although I still cannot save money,” he says. “… I can see the better life coming to us.”___AP researcher Fu Ting in Shanghai contributed to this report.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

2 Uber managers detained in France over lowcost service

first_imgPARIS (AP) — French authorities detained two senior Uber managers for questioning on Monday over “illicit activity” involving its low-cost ride-hailing service.The detentions came amid rising tensions between the government and the American company, which culminated last week in a violence-marred taxi strike that blocked roads around the country.French authorities are frustrated that Uber doesn’t pay the same taxes and social charges as traditional taxis, whose drivers have lashed out against what they see as unfair competition. Uber, meanwhile, argues that the French system is outdated and needs reform to keep up with apps and geo-localization.

Zillow HardHit States House Top Sellers Markets

first_img Share A new report from “”Zillow””: shows home sellers in the West tend to have the greatest advantages over buyers when it comes to negotiation, while buyers in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic areas are likelier to come out of a sale with more left in their wallets.[IMAGE]For its latest “”research brief””:, Zillow analyzed data on actual sales prices compared to asking prices, the number of days listings spent on Zillow, and the percentage of homes on the market with a price cut.””As most housing markets continue to improve nationwide, the relative position of buyers and sellers continues to vary considerably by geography,”” said Zillow chief economist Stan Humphries. “”In some markets, buyers are finding themselves in strong bargaining positions relative to sellers, confidently offering less than the asking price on a home they had months to consider. In other areas, it’s sellers that are squarely in the driver’s seat with their homes selling within days of listing, often after bidding wars that increase the sale price above the asking price.””The 30 largest metro areas in the country were then ranked according to their Buyer-Seller Index values. A low number on the index indicates a sellers’ market, while the converse is true for a buyers’ market.[COLUMN_BREAK]With the exception of Seattle and Washington, D.C., the top sellers’ markets are all in the West, with six of the top eight located in California. Non-Golden Gate State entries include Las Vegas, Nevada and Phoenix, Arizona.The top sellers’ market in the country is San Jose, California, which earns a 0.1 on the index. The median length of time a home stays on the market in San Jose is 50 days, and the sale-to-list price ratio is 1.012.San Francisco and Sacramento followed for the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, respectively.Besides their geographic location, the top sellers’ markets have one major commonality, according to Humphries.””Many of the strongest sellers’ markets are in areas that were hardest hit by the housing bust, places like California, Nevada and Arizona, which may seem counter-intuitive. But much of that strength is driven by investor interest, as many distressed and non-distressed homes are purchased and transformed into rentals,”” he said. “”This investor activity is contributing to very low inventory levels, which increases demand and helps drive up prices, particularly for less expensive homes in these markets.””*Biggest Sellers’ Markets*1.
