When Intel made its latest AI hardware announcement at Automobility LA 2017 it wasn't a gauntlet being laid. Instead it was only the latest in a series one-upmanships on the...

Republican lawmakers presented their final $1.5 trillion tax bill late Friday evening, with a repair to the Base Erosion Anti-Abuse Tax (BEAT) provision that keeps 80 percent of the Investment Tax Credit and Production Tax Credit values.

If 2011 was the year of the solar shakeout, then 2017 is the year of solar's buildup. BP embodies this transition. Six years ago, during a period of mass bankruptcies and restructuring in solar manufacturing, the oil and gas major exited the industry after three decades in the business. “Over the last six months we have realized that we simply can’t make any money from solar,” a spokesperson told the Financial Times in December 2011.

The way we come together with others to reinforce social bonds and underpin social identities continues to take place very often via the daily rituals of eating and drinking. You are what you eat, it’s sometimes said. But one might equally say: you eat so that you are. It makes sense...
