If the wizards in Harry Potter really wanted they could create a society with unlimited food, space and energy that could vastly improve Humanity as a whole, instead they just hide like assholes.
Pakistan’s largest province has ordered energy-drink manufacturers including Red Bull to remove the word “energy” from their labels, saying it is scientifically misleading and encourages a population unaware of the beverages’ contents to guzzle them in potentially dangerous quantities.
Selling sweets near supermarket checkouts and offering two-for-one deals on junk food will be banned under government campaign against childhood obesity...also considering barring cartoons from promoting junk food and consulting on making it illegal to sell energy drinks to anyone under 16.
TIL Manoj Bhargava the creator of 5 Hour energy created the formula in 30 days, has a net worth of 4 billion and plans donate 99 percent of his wealth by creating a series of inventions to help 3rd world countries receive basic functions like water, electricity, and health.
The cost of producing solar power is rapidly declining: it now costs $50 to produce one megawatt-hour of solar power. Coal, on the other hand, costs $102 per megawatt-hour to produce. This recent change could be a sign that the world is on the verge of an energy revolution.
Energy groups join together to condemn plan to subsidize nuclear, coal plants: “A policy to spend billions of dollars keeping uneconomic power plants afloat, while trying to put clean and affordable solar on the sidelines, is not a recipe for economic success.”
TIL Sabrina Pasterski built a single engine airplane by the time she was 14 y/o, at 16 became the youngest person ever to fly their own plane; graduated MIT in 3 years with a 5.0 GPA and is now 24 at Harvard getting a PhD in high energy physics.
“Texas is a stellar Green state. Its true! Texas produces the largest amount of wind energy in America. More than Iowa, California, and Oklahoma combined, the states that rank second, third and fourth. The 781.5MW Roscoe Wind Farm in Texas currently ranks as the world’s third largest wind farm.”
TIL of the Orgone Accumulator, a device sold in the 1950s to allow a person sitting inside to attract orgone, a massless 'healing energy'. The FDA noted that one purchaser, a college professor, knew it was "phony" but found it "helpful because his wife sat quietly in it for four hours every day."
TIL about the Oh-My-God Particle, a proton traveling at about 99.99999999999999999999951% the speed of light. It is the fastest moving object ever recorded and as it hit the atmosphere it carried the kinetic energy equivalent to a baseball traveling at 50MPH, all in one particle.
