Activists are pushing Biden to stop the construction of other pipelines, including the Dakota Access pipeline — which Trump similarly expedited, despite high-profile protests in defense of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s water supply and land. There are also calls to stop the Enbridge Line 3 project, a plan to abandon an aging pipeline that runs between Alberta and the Midwestern US and replace it with a new one that can transport more oil. … [Read more...] about Joe Biden cancels Keystone XL permit

Raspberry Pi has released a C software development kit (SDK), which can be used from the command line or tools like Visual Studio Code. It has also released a Pico Python SDK with MicroPython, an implementation of the Python 3 programming language that runs on embedded hardware. There's plenty of documentation available with Pico's specifications, and instructions and tools to use C and MicroPython. … [Read more...] about Raspberry Pi: The newest member of the family is this tiny $4 microcontroller
The industry calls this “compact” This is the fourth generation of vehicle to wear the Sorento badge. The 2021 has a well-proportioned shape, although one that's busy with detail, whatever the viewing angle. That shape can look fussy, but it also helps the Sorento avoid looking slab-sided. The front is dominated by Kia's "tiger nose" front grille and some rather intricate LED headlamps, and the only real visual clue that you're looking at a hybrid—other than the Hybrid badge on the back, obviously—are the aerodynamic 17-inch alloy wheels. … [Read more...] about Three rows, 37mpg, and under $34,000?

All that material surrounding the iron squeezes in on the core, but iron fusion doesn't release energy to counteract it. Instead, the core contracts to such incredible densities that electrons get shoved inside of protons, turning the entire core into a giant ball of neutrons. … [Read more...] about How do stars die?
Their model also predicts what’s next for our planet. When Pangaea broke up 175 million years ago, it led to the formation of the Ring of Fire, a set of subduction zones along the perimeter of the Pacific Ocean that fuels volcanoes and earthquakes. Several continents have already combined to create the current megacontinent, Eurasia, and it has run up against the Ring of Fire, the subduction girdle of our age. As Eurasia moves laterally along the Ring of Fire, it will eventually collide with the Americas, forming a new supercontinent in the next 50 million to 200 million years, Mitchell says. … [Read more...] about What might Earth’s next supercontinent look like?
