Shrink the Solar Power Inverter and Google Will Pay You $1 Million

LITTLE_BOX_POWER_INVERTER_GOOGLE_2What’s the size of a clunky ice cooler and essential to that off-grid lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of? If you guessed a solar power inverter, then you may be just the techie Google is hoping to hear from. At a time when computers can fit in the palm of your hand and miniaturized pacemakers can be less than 42 millimeters in size and less than 2 cubic centimeters in volume, it may seem surprising that we’re still dealing with solar inverters that can be as big as your grandmother’s knitting chest.

Google’s Green Team has come up with an ingenious answer: Offer what every hobby industrialist has always wanted – $1 million for the guy or gal that can come up with a way to shrink the technology.

For those who are unacquainted with power inverters, it’s that essential piece of equipment that allows us to actually utilize the power we gain through the solar panels or wind turbines. It converts the direct current (DC) that’s stored from say, a solar array, to the alternating current (AC) we use to power appliances.

Reducing the size of the power inverter would not only make it easier to install solar panels in isolated, undeveloped areas of the world, like Central America or India, but will also invariably open the door to better, smaller forms of renewable energy.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ….I’m thinking!

I saw Johnny and Edgar Winter a number of times – They were quite good and absolutely had an original sound.  There were so many bands back then and so diverse.  Everyone was expressing themselves, their unique view on life through music – and the audiences were at the concert to see music and be with the music ….no food no drinks just the epiphany that music can be – encompassing everyone.

Israeli Reservists Sign Petition And Refuse To Serve

Over 50 Israeli Reservists Declare ‘We Refuse to Serve’

Joint letter comes as Palestinian death toll in Gaza nears 800 and UN official warns of possible human rights violations and war crimes

As Israel continues to pummel Gaza, over 50 reservists in the Israeli army have declared their refusal to serve in the army and voiced their open support for “all those who resist being called to service.”

In a petition published Wednesday in the Washington Post, the resisters criticize an army that denies the “civil and human rights” of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. “We divide the world into good and evil according to the military’s categories; the military serves as the leading authority on who is valued more and who less in society,” reads the statement.

Yael Even Or, a key organizer of the petition and one of its signatories, told Democracy Now! on Thursday that “the timing and the platform have been chosen because of the urgency of this matter and our call to the Israeli government to stop the attack on Gaza.” However, she said the problem extends far beyond the current offensive of Gaza to all of Israeli society, where militarism “is so normal in Israel that it creates the idea that all of us are part of this thing, a part of the army.”
