How Tesla can Solve Idle Fees

When you park at a Super Charger, you can leave your car to charge while you go grab a bite or do some shopping. At some point though, your car will finish charging. After that, you are taking up a parking spot with your car plugged in. This is where “Idle Fees” kick in. If […]


Voting Green Party

I watched Elizabeth May last night answer questions. This is going to sound like a total paid endorsement but it is not. For the first time ever, I see a party which aligns with exactly what I want. I have no choice but to give them my full support. I am not going to encourage […]


The Biggest Benefit to Social Media

I wish I could remember the headline of the article my boss posted tonight. I no longer have access to it because I unfriended him. Coming on Facebook and posting something along the lines of making a comment like “This is a really well written article with many good points.” and the title of the […]

The Cost of Pollution

“This research shows that renewables pay for themselves through health benefits alone,” lead author Emil Dimanchev, a senior research associate at the MIT Center for Energy and Environmental Research, told The Verge.


Profile Detection

My car keeps getting better. One cool feature about the Tesla is the driver profiles. My wife can set it to her profile and the mirrors and seat adjusts to her saved config settings. When I drive the car I could select my profile and have my saved settings. The whole thing is a major […]


The Abuse of Power

I keep hearing that the worst thing is religion. I can’t make sense of that. Religion is just a belief system. How firmly people believe is widely variable. And if the religion provides a good moral ethic code which is fairly inline with my own, I have nothing against people believing that. If people are […]
