Comcast Ghost-Writes Politician's Letters To Support Time Warner Mega-Merger

justcauseisjustthat Re:Money *needs* to be removed from Politics ... (88 comments)

Having 3 or more candidate elections would ensure more voices are heard, I would think in the US it would probably be 4-6 candidates per election (never will every opinion be heard). The great thing is candidates wouldn't have to tow the party line because they would no longer need two parties to raise funds... Elections would be tighter and there would be more participation (because it's more interesting).

Comcast Ghost-Writes Politician's Letters To Support Time Warner Mega-Merger

justcauseisjustthat Re:Money *needs* to be removed from Politics ... (88 comments)

Publicly funded elections would be awesome (with complex rules ensuring multiple party elections, but that make sure participants to have x numbers of signatures or x percentage of polling). Don't need the Goat Herders of Little Russia North getting too much money for no reason :-)

There should be a law that letters and proposed laws/amendments should require a list of all contributors (bring the companies, lobbyists into the light).

Yes, but we also know those job descriptions are a joke! Recruiter and/or HR people throw everything under the Sun in them and then suggest minimum pay.

I love how this treatment requires slicing and dicing the patient, let's get anti-cd47 treatments moving. Stanford has clinical trials moving, hopefully they expand it and it continues to go well.

AAA battery plus new electrocatalyst (cheap & durable)

justcauseisjustthat justcauseisjustthat writes  |  about 4 months ago

justcauseisjustthat (1150803) writes "As published in Nature http://www.nature.com/ncomms/2... last month Stanford researches http://news.stanford.edu/news/... have developed a new electrocatalyst that using just a AAA battery can convert water to hydrogen. With this cheap, abundant and durable solution could this pave the way to a hydrogen based transportation and power system. Could current cars be retrofitted to convert water to hydrogen inline , fill your gas tank with water, filter out impurities and use the electrocatalyst to make hydrogen in real time (no storage of hydrogen)."
