Solar Rebates in Florida Expire. A crying shame.

Patrick Detscher: Don't let utilities determine the future | tallahassee.com | Tallahassee Democrat: "The Florida legislative session has ended and our leaders have returned to their districts without fulfilling a responsibility near and dear to your hearts, wallets and future. As things stand, Florida's only renewable energy incentive will expire at the end of June. With nearly $30 million in rebate money owed to more than 85,000 Florida family members and businesses that installed solar systems, the Legislature chose to turn its collective back on us."

ISS ground track

I have seen four very bright passages of the ISS since this one.  I have an Iphone app named "ISS Visibility" that predicts when these passages will occur.  The ISS appears brighter than the brightest star on most of these passages and is moving faster than the fastest plane in the sky.  I can imagine that anyone not knowing this was the space station would think they were seeing a UFO.

Impressive Results From New Cancer Drug - New York Times

For the melanoma patients who signed on to try a drug known as PLX4032, the clinical trial was a last resort. Their bodies were riddled with tumors, leaving them almost certainly just months to live.

But a few weeks after taking their first dose, nearly all of them began to recover.
