Energy in the Next 30 Years

By Martin HahnWe are now in the early stages of an energy revolution that is profound and rapid as the one that ushered in the age of oil in the 21st century. This new energy system - highly decentralized, efficient, and based increasingly on renewable resources and hydrogen fuel- is already beginning to emerge in other parts of the world. Without visionary leadership, there can be a risk falling behind its economic competitors and compromising its political credibility on the international stage which will be judged by the extent to which it embodies the following principles of a 21st century energy system:1. Energy Efficiency: investments in energy efficiency-obtaining the same services of lighting, cooking, heating, mobility, and industry will lower energy requirement.2. Natural Gas: Natural Gas is the cleanest and fastest-growing fossil fuel, and despite the recent increase in price, has become the fuel choice for power generation. But the challenge with natural gas is not to dri…

Exciting New Features In Java 9

By Arun Kumar Biswal In September, Oracle released Java SE 9 with over 150 new features. The latest version of the widely used programming language comes with several new features and APIs to accelerate development of applications for both large and small devices. At the same time, the features provided by Java 9 help programmers to improve application's performance, security, and maintainability. Hence, it becomes essential for programmers to understand some of the key features provided by Java 9.What Programmers Need to Know about Java 9?Module SystemThe developers can now use Better Support for HTML5 and JavaScript to divide JDK into multiple modules. Each modular JAR file contains a module descriptor. The developers can define interdependency of various modules through requires statements. The modularity makes it easier for programmers to run JVM modules smoothly on small devices that lack additional memory. At the same time, they can also run only the APIs and JVM modules re…

The Reality Of Christ And Christianity

By John PrytzSo you have faith in Christianity and Christian theology (and therefore in the central figure of Jesus / Christ). How so, and why? Everything must be examined and questioned. Everything is grist for the mill. Nothing is sacred.Table of Contents:General Observations and CommentsThe GospelsThe ResurrectionThe Second ComingConclusionGENERAL OBSERVATIONS and COMMENTSThe Reality of Christ and Therefore of Christianity: True or False?*First and foremost, you weren't there all those 2000+ years ago. All you know and understand is hearsay and are just a load of claims made from 2000 years ago by pretty much the great unwashed of the times. It's all somebody told somebody told somebody.*If there is any one trait that defines the human species is that we love telling tall tales. We are seemingly hardwired to be storytellers. Think of the literally millions of novels, short stories, plays, poems, campfire tales, TV shows / episodes, films, operas, even other visual forms of…

The Meaning of the Sphinx

By Uche Mbah Travelers and tourists are always baffled on the meaning and significance of the sphinx that is found in front of the Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. They are marveled that the Sphinx is an enigmatic statue with a Lion's paws, Eagle's wings, Human face and a Bull's body. This has become a source of academic discuss over what it all means and what it does not. Today, I am to attempt to discuss the issue of the Sphinx and what it stands for. There are two versions of what the sphinx is all about. The first version is the Egyptian version, which,dates back to the time of the building of the pyramid of Giza. This I indicated how it was built in the article on The Pyramid Of Giza and End Tim prophecies. The second version of the story is the story of the sphinx and the riddle. The story goes that a sphinx appears to a town and gives them a riddle: What is it that walks with four legs in the morning, two in the afternoon and three in the evening? Anyone who did not answe…
