Zinc-air batteries: Three-stage method could revolutionise rechargeability

University of Sydney researchers have found a solution for one of the biggest stumbling blocks preventing zinc-air batteries from overtaking conventional lithium-ion batteries as the power source of choice in electronic devices.

Zinc-air batteries are batteries powered by zinc metal and oxygen from the air. Due to the global abundance of zinc metal, these batteries are much cheaper to produce than lithium-ion batteries, and they can also store more energy (theoretically five times more than that of lithium-ion batteries), are much safer and are more environmentally friendly.

People working in low paying, unstable jobs show more signs of chronic stress than their counterparts who remain unemployed

For the unemployed, finding a job can be a path to improved mental health, but only if it’s a good one, a recent study finds. Researchers tracked 116 British adults who were unemployed in 2009-2010. Those who found good jobs enjoyed improved mental health outcomes, while those who found jobs that were stressful, poorly paid, or unstable saw no improvement. In fact, the physical indicators of chronic stress were even higher in people working in bad jobs than in those who remained unemployed. We spoke with study author Tarani Chandola, a medical sociologist at the University of Manchester, about the study.

THY ART IS MURDER - They Will Know Another

Bootcamp for delinquents

Following the incandescent rise of Jacinda Ardern to the top of the Labour Party, the National Party, obviously ruffled by the obscene amount of media time a non criminal, non member of the National Party has been receiving since then has released what they hope is surely a vote hoovering election winning policy of "Boot Camps" for juvenile delinquents.

Nine years into their run as government they have decided that the iron fist needs to come down on naughty adolescents and their negligent parents, so they are going to send them to the Army and slam the parents of these little monsters with fines.

It's a shame Metiria Turei resigned

It pretty obviously had to happen. Her brutal honesty about her time on welfare decades ago backfired enormously and the right leaning mainstream media saw the opportunity to pour petrol on the fire she lit and stoked an inferno.

I met her about 10 years ago at one of the openUReyes film nights at the Southern Cross Garden Bar. We invited her as a guest speaker and she turned up, luggage in hand straight after landing at Wellington airport on a Monday evening. She spotted me lingering at the back of the crowd and picked me as an organiser immediately and we sat and chatted quietly while the film played. She hit me then as the real deal, a real person, not an actor and she stood up at the end of the film and spoke to the audience with relaxed authority and knowledge on the subject from a Kiwi political position.

The want for rich people to put houses and other development in beautiful places must not outweigh the need for our environment to be protected

A marine reserve north of Auckland could have 1000 houses built on its shores if a development company has its way.

Okura Land Holdings Ltd is going to the Environment Court next to appeal a decision by the Auckland Council to knock back the development.

Long Bay Okura Great Park society spokesperson Teresa Moore said that number of houses would cause silt and heavy metals to go into the Okura Estuary.

WaPo refuses to add disclosure about $600M CIA contract

In 2013, Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post for $250 million. Only 4 months later, he was awarded a $600 million contract with the CIA. So the CIA has a direct connection to the Washington Post, the paper of record in the capital of the USA, but they refuse to add a disclosure to stories they write about the CIA.
