Is Google turning evil?

They now have different policies for large corporations - encouraged to do adword attack ads on critics, and for individuals - 'policy does not permit the advertisement of websites that contain 'language that advocates against an individual, group, or organization'.'

BTW - I saw Live Free or Die Hard - excellent. Great choice of actors in many roles. Also excellent was Ratatouille, again with excellent and unexpected choices in voice actors.

Russia and USA sign agreement on nuclear energy

President Bush and President Putin have signed an agreement on the development of nuclear energy. They agreed that they "share a common vision of growth in the use of nuclear energy, including in developing countries, to increase the supply of electricity, promote economic growth and development, and reduce reliance on fossil fuels, resulting in decreased pollution and greenhouse gasses."


US nuclear power stations near completion of all the additional measures to deal with terrorists.

The US regulator, the NRC, has said that almost all the additional measures taken in response to the threat of terrorists attacks at US nuclear power stations, including additional measures to mitigate the possible effects of a large fire or explosion, including those caused by the deliberate or accidental impact of a large commercial aircraft.

Nuclear power stations are already robustly constructed as part of their safety systems but these additional measures should protect them even more.

German Chancellor Merkel decides against reversing nuclear phase out- for now...

Angela Merkel rejected German industry calls to reverse that country's nuclear phase-out policy. However she only said that she did not see the policy being reversed before 2009, when new elections are due. Many members of Merkel's own party would like to reverse the phase-out, but Merkel's party is in a grand coalition with the anti-nuclear Social Democrats.

Merkel commited Germany to a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020, compared to 1990 levels. German power utilities say they need to keep nuclear power stations operating to meet those goals.
