10 nations where women have the most power

Women make up half of the world’s population, and yet only two countries have legislative bodies that reflect that. The top two countries that accurately represent women in parliament would most likely not be your first or second guess: Rwanda and Andorra. Countries like the United States, the United Kingdom and China rank abysmally at 83, 64 and 61, respectively. 
In Rwanda, 63.8% of the parliament are women.

Not every white person is a racist, but the genius of racism is that you don’t have to participate to enjoy the spoils. If you’re white, you can be completely oblivious, passively accepting the status quo, and reap the rewards.

Hydro Power Gets Big Makeover By Going Small

Generating loads of electricity from moving water might soon shift away from the province of behemoth structures like Washington’s Grand Coulee and China’s Three Gorges dams.

Over the last few years, researchers and industry have been chalking up successes developing small-scale, distributed hydroelectric generators to potentially replace their massive forebears, whose footprint causes major disturbances in the environment and communities nearby. These emerging technologies, collectively called hydrokinetics, can turn moving water in rivers, manmade spillways and ocean tides into electricity that gets pumped into power grids. 

“For new projects that need to be started, small hydrokinetic distributed networks should be considered as a viable candidate against big dams or other major power production projects,” says Diana Marculescu, a Carnegie Mellon University computer and electrical engineering professor who works in hydrokinetics. “In the long term, these distributed generation projects can become a serious alternative to large-scale hydroelectric, especially in the developing world, where increase in demand will be much larger.”

The system is called DemandLogic, and it involves batteries produced by Tesla Motors — “about the size of a small refrigerator” — combined with a solar array and software that communicates with the wider grid, responding to changes in rates and electricity demand and balancing those with what the solar array and the battery can provide.
