Inside a former baked-goods factory near the Oakland Airport, a construction crew is installing giant vats that will soon be used to scale up production of the Impossible Burgera plant-based meat designed to look and taste good enough that meat eaters will want to order it, not vegetarians. The meat, developed by a team led by former Stanford biochemistry professor Patrick Brown, is currently being produced in a 10,000-square-foot pilot facility in Silicon Valley and a 1,500-square foot space in New Jersey. The new facility, at around 60,000 square feet, will dramatically scale up production capacity. When the factory is fully ramped up, it will be able to produce at least 1 million pounds of Impossible Burger meat a month, or 250 times more than today.

It's just the point that the Sierra Club has the economic argument backwards here. They're touting how many jobs there are in renewables. But that's evidence of how expensive renewables are, not how cheap. Because human labour is a scarce resource and thus using more of it is more expensive.

Whether a film emerges as a festival favorite is as much a function of the on-the-ground word of mouth as it is on-screen quality. The more scarce tickets are for a film, the more its success relies on buzz. This makes festivals absolutely great for VR—an innately low-bandwidth medium.

There's the second reading of the bill that would criminalise domestic violence. 10,000 Russian women are estimated to die at the hands of their partners every year. The government has clamped down so much on protests in the last few years, they have become very scarce and when protesters.

Countries could unravel through phases of federation, soft partition or autonomy, ending in geographic divorce. . . . . . Other changes may be de facto. City-statesoases of multiple identities like Baghdad, well-armed enclaves like Misurata, Libya’s third largest city, or homogeneous zones like Jabal al-Druze in southern Syria — might make a comeback, even if technically inside countries. Former Ambassador to the United Nations and NeoCon, John R. Bolton, even wrote an op-ed for the New York Times where he argued for the balkanization of Syria and the creation of a “Sunnistan.” Bolton was relatively blunt in his article, openly admitting that the new state is “unlikely to be a Jeffersonian democracy for many years” but following that statement up with a bizarre admission that “this is a region where alternatives to secular military or semi-authoritarian governments are scarce.

"“We appeal to the world to immediately support us.” Another woman, age 73, said “this is the worst I have seen in my life.” Somaliland was affected by the 2011 regional drought that killed an estimated 260,000 people, but that event had its gravest impact in south and central Somalia. Somaliland declared independence from Somalia in 1991 but is not recognized by any other country. The current drought has forced tens of thousands of pastoralists to flee from remote villages into towns, where they set up makeshift camps. As water becomes scarce, the drought is forcing many people living in camps outside the town of Las-Anod to drink dirty water. Standing near the carcass of a camel, Roble Jama, a 13-year-old herder, said his family lost the only camel they had due to drought. “I have seen when the camel was dying and I felt so sad. The camel’s name was Cadaawe and was nine years old,” Roble Jama told VOA near the village of Ina-Afmadobe.

Yes, on occasion, Mars still has liquid water. In the distant past, the Uzboi valley was completely covered in water, a fact that is supported by the erosion clearly visible in the photo. So this makes it even more mind-boggling when you realize that amid all this weathering of sediment, a remarkable structure still stands tall. Take a look: The object in the image appears spherical in form and we can estimate it measures some 200 feet across, possibly even more. Judging by the shadow it casts, the object looks like it stands higher than the surrounding area. It’s as if it were elevated on a platform or some kind of supporting stilts. Does that remind you of anything? If water was more plentiful in the distant martian past and has since become scarce, we can reason that at some point in the not-so-distant past water was in the process of disappearing from the surface.

Inspired by an article in GQ magazine, Last Chance U follows student athletes who are one step away from never playing football again. On top of the pressures on the field, students face problems in the classroom where class absences and the fear failing hit harder than a defensive lineman. It's gritty, heart-wrenching and exactly the kind of series that gives you something to root for all while biting your nails. Seasons on Netflix: 1 It shouldn't work but it really really does. This modern retelling of the Sherlock Holmes stories is as good as it gets. Benedict Cumberbatch is everything you want in a Holmes - someone that wallows in wit, weirdness and warmth. While Martin Freeman plays Dr Watson as he plays all his characters - he's the everyman that has to learn how to deal with his extraordinary colleague. Episodes are scarce but each one is feature length, which gives them time to breath.
