The newly released 2013 Renewable Energy Data Book illustrates United States and global energy statistics, including renewable electricity generation, renewable energy development, clean energy investments, and technology-specific data and trends. The Data Book is produced and published annually by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory on behalf of the Energy Department's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
Leadership has boomed into it's own industry. The US alone spends over $14 billion a year on it; you can get a Ph.D. in it; and we promote it to kids as the way to get ahead in life. But new research from a University of Waterloo professor and his wife reveals there might be something most employees are overlooking and, if you don't do it well, will probably get you fired.

A total of 1.6 billion people worldwide -- nearly a quarter of the global population -- are forced to pay bribes to gain access to everyday public services, according to a new book by academics at the Universities of Strathclyde and Birmingham.
The book gives a self-contained treatment of the mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics, assuming only the mathematical sophistication usually acquired in undergraduate mathematics or physics education. The principles of quantum mechanics are discussed with complete mathematical accuracy and an effort is always made to trace them back to the experimental reality that lies at their root. The statistical aspects of quantum mechanics are compared and contrasted with the same aspects of classical physics.
'Glia,' published by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, examines our understanding of the basic biology of glia and their roles in diseases such as Alzheimer's and cancer. What emerges from this work is new insight into the importance of glial cells, especially an appreciation that the development, function, and malfunction of our brains can only be understood as a signaling interplay between neurons and glial cells.
