Google Employee Fired Over Viewpoint Diversity Memo Files Federal Labor Complaint - Breitbart

Google Employee Fired Over Viewpoint Diversity Memo Files Federal Labor Complaint - Breitbart



Google is already facing two cases with the N.L.R.B., one of which was filed in 2015, and another from 2016. Both are still open — and Damore’s will add a third.
Both existing cases allege that Google engages in coercion, including threats and surveillance, against its employees. The first complaint alleges an improper layoff, and both complaints allege improper retaliation.

Battery that will power your phone for 'twice as long' available next year | ZDNet

MIT spinout SolidEnergy Systems plans to release the first of its super-long life, lithium-ion batteries in November for drones, followed by phones next year.

94 year-old John Goodenough, one of the co-inventors of the lithium-ion battery that now powers everything from phones to Teslas, has developed a new solid-state battery formula that promises to hold three times more energy than li-on. Goodenough and his team also say the new battery, which replaces a liquid electrolyte with glass, would charge quickly, never explode, and perform well at low temperatures that cripple today’s batteries.

The battery is still in the early stages of development, with a recent paper describing it published in the journal Energy & Environmental Science. That stage of battery research would normally merit caution, since most ‘revolutionary’ new battery ideas in recent years have turned out to be impractical to produce or unfit for the real world.


Get Data Sheet, Fortune’s technology newsletter.

But Goodenough, even at 94, demands attention. In 1980, he pioneered the cobalt-oxide cathode that forms the heart of lithium-ion batteries. The li-on became the backbone of the mobile electronics revolution, with some calling its impact as big as the transistor's.

But the li-on is clearly reaching the limits of its potential. The biggest proof may be in the spate of explosions now plaguing smartphone makers from Samsung to Apple, in part thanks to li-ons’ tendency to grow dendrites, metal strands that can cause short circuits. Goodenough's team says that using glass instead of liquid as an electrolyte—the membrane electrons traverse during charging and discharge— eliminates that possibility.

The other major benefit of Goodenough’s new idea is that it replaces lithium with sodium as a key material. While lithium isn’t particularly rare, it’s still harder to come by than sodium, which can be extracted from seawater. So the new battery could be cheaper to make than today’s li-on’s.
Even if Goodenough’s idea turns out to be both practical and scalable, it will be a long time before it actually goes into production. For historical reference, li-on batteries weren’t commercialized for more than a decade after Goodenough helped invent them.

Socialist Utopia: Venezuela Inflation Hits 248 Percent... » Louder With Crowder

Wherever socialism seeps, crapstorms follow. Hurricane Venezuela is an obvious example (see Socialist Venezuelan Government SEIZES General Motors Plant and GUN CONTROL: Venezuela Confiscates Civilian Guns. ARMS Socialist Regime). News of Venezuela’s shortcomings (taking the form of human suffering) won’t be leaving the lips of champagne socialists any time soon. The western left is following in the footsteps of their socialist heroes. Venezuela’s current failure in chief seems to be rather mum on subject as well.

Molina Healthcare Exits Obamacare Exchanges in Two States, Experiences $230 Million Loss » Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!Molina Healthcare has announced it is exiting the Obamacare exchanges in Utah and Wisconsin and has experienced a $230 million loss in the second quarter of 2017.

In the remaining Obamacare exchanges, the health insurer is planning to increase premiums by 55 percent next year, which will account for the loss of cost-sharing reduction subsidies. If the program was funded, premiums would only increase by 30 percent.

'There Is No Hunger in Venezuela': Maduro's Socialists Begin Coup in Congress



Venezuela currently lacks any supply of 95 percent of the medications the World Health Organization (WHO) lists as necessary for a functioning healthcare system. An estimated 15 percent of Venezuelans rely on eating garbage to survive, while three out of four Venezuelans lost an average of 19 pounds last year due to an inability to procure food supplies. Venezuelans have come to refer to the growing threat of famine in the country as the “Maduro diet.”
