The nuclear power industry is in crisis. The newest generation of state-sponsored, super-expensive reactors are behind schedule and wildly over-budget. Older plants are being retired at a rate that new ones aren’t replacing. And dozens of startups with novel technologies are languishing, with no clear path toward partnering with private- and public-sector backers to take them to the next level.  But there’s hope for a new approach, the Breakthrough Institute says. In a newly released report,...

The quest to make solar energy a major source of the world’s electricity will not succeed if national policies and industries compete as though it is a zero-sum game.  That is just one of many findings of The New Solar System, a sprawling report released earlier this week by Stanford University’s Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance, a joint research center that includes the university’s business and law schools. The result of two years of work -- including interviews with...

There was lard. In different forms. Dried, salty pieces of pork that exquisitely complemented the toothy, homemade plum schnapps I was offered. And then a spreadable, seasoned variety, slathered on artisan bread. I shouldn’t have been surprised. This was, after all, an invitation to visit long-established Czech furniture manufacturer TON, whose brand – like the lard – oozes authenticity. My hosts, displaying hospitality in spades, were determined that I not only gather valuable, first-hand...

Farmers know how hard it is to predict yield accurately. High-value crops like grapes or almonds prove particularly challenging.

For managing director Thomas Germann, the indirect component is an essential part of any lighting design because it creates a totally different atmosphere than direct lighting.

Thomas Germann: “Although there are plenty of attractive luminaires on the market, they often don’t provide enough...

The idea for the Evolution armchair comes from a new demand of comfort. Stressed by the hectic everyday life, we take refuge on our favourite armchair for a little relaxation: a moment just for us to relax and do what we like most. Until now, this concept of comfort has involved only the sphere of seat cosiness without solving the most complex theme of harmony between body and mind: the feeling of relaxation must be coupled with a personalized, ergonomic support that benefits the whole...

London’s City Hall has been compared variously to a car headlamp, a misshapen egg, a motorcycle helmet and, by former mayor Ken Livingstone, a “glass testicle”. Love it or hate it, the building designed by Foster + Partners demonstrates the challenges involved in developing iconic civic architecture. Such buildings were traditionally created to instil a sense of pride and identity within the populace, often through the scale or grandiosity of their design. The move towards a more egalitarian...
