An ounce of prevention
When you think about it, Americans go to great lengths to be healthy these days. This generation is far more knowledgeable about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle than generations past.

After all, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

ScalaBLAST solves problems in record time
Scientists are dedicated to making discoveries that influence our world, but making these discoveries takes time. It took Albert Einstein 16 years to express his general theory of relativity. Benjamin Franklin was first introduced to electricity experiments on a trip to Boston in 1746, but his famous lightning rod experiment didn't occur until six years later -- and he knocked himself unconscious more than once in the process.

"Smart" energy devices + real-time pricing = increased options for consumers
About 200 volunteers in the Pacific Northwest are testing equipment that is expected to make the power grid more reliable while offsetting huge investments in new transmission and distribution equipment. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory recently launched the Pacific Northwest GridWiseTM Testbed Demonstration, a regional initiative to test and speed adoption of new smart grid technologies that can make the power grid more resilient and efficient.
