Australian makes wonderful AC
March 31, 2015
An Australian inventor Prof. James Trevelyan has made a revolutionary ultra energy efficient portable air conditioner named Close Comfort that uses less than 350 watts electricity to operate only about 15% of the energy used by conventional ACs. It is approximately the same amount of electricity used to power two ceiling fans says a press release. This remarkable invention can be used on a typical domestic UPS and even on small sources of electricity like solar power or small generators. Unlike conventional ACs Close Comfort' does not waste electricity trying to cool large spaces. Instead it uses Smart Air Flow Technology to directly cool air only where it is needed to keep users cool and comfortable even on the hottest of days. The unit is compact light weight (17 kgs) and self-contained. It does not need an external unit or any sort of exhaust piping or plumbing and can be easily transported and positioned anywhere.

Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government Hearing; The Proposed Budget Estimates and Justification for FY2016 for the Judiciary.; Testimony by Julia Gibbons, United States Court of Appeals
March 24, 2015
INTRODUCTION Chairman Boozman, Senator Coons, and members of the Committee, I am Judge Julia Gibbons of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. Our court sits in Cincinnati, Ohio, and my resident chambers are in Memphis, Tennessee. As the Chair of the Judicial Conference Committee on the Budget, I will testify on the Judiciary=s appropriations requirements for fiscal year 2016. I believe our fiscal year 2016 request of $7.0 billion in discretionary appropriations achieves our goal of holding down cost growth across the Judiciary where possible while also investing in several important new information technology and program initiatives that will improve Judiciary operations. My testimony will provide details on those initiatives, discuss recently enacted fiscal year 2015 Judiciary appropriations, and provide an update on our cost-containment program, including a detailed discussion of efforts underway to reduce the Judiciary's space footprint. This is my eleventh year testifying before Congress on behalf of the federal Judiciary and my first appearance before this Financial Services and General Government panel since 2008. Appearing with me today is James C. Duff, Director of the Administrative Office of the United States Courts. We are very appreciative that you are holding this hearing today. STATEMENTS FOR THE RECORD

Canon PowerShot SX530 HS
March 19, 2015
The Canon PowerShot SX530 HS ($429.99) is one of the smaller cameras availablewith a 50x zoom ratio, and itdoesn't really skimp on features in order to get there. The superzoom uses a 16-megapixel CMOS image sensor that supports 1080p video capture and Canon's unique Creative Shot mode, and its control layout is quite good for a point-and-shoot model. It doesn't quite earn Editors' Choice accolade for models with 50x or higher reach, though. Another Canon camera, the PowerShot SX60 HS, is our choice instead, thanks to a 65x zoom lens, an integrated EVF, and Raw shooting support. But the SX60 HS is bigger and more expensive, giving you reason to consider the SX530 HS as a more affordable alternative.
