    Glad to hear you talked to him.
    As he signed up for three more years, it seems it is not an imminent threat. Too bad TG won't get the credit, when this goes.
    Of course if he'd quit working there we might have gotten him over here for a chat.

    Hopefully Me DiGiacinto is a bit more talky tho.

    I'm busy elsewhere for a time, but stopped in to wish TG the best. Hope all comes out well.

    This seems like a good place to add this.

    Big power-plant pollution cuts are ordered

    "The Obama administration unveiled a plan Monday aimed at cutting carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by nearly a third by 2030. "

    Thanks Felix
    I listened to an interview and couldn't believe what he was claiming. Of course I couldn't believe what he was saying when he was in office either.

    I heard of an interesting study on NPR.
    Basically it showed people who lie to themselves and others; to make themselves seem to be better people, are happier and more successful than realists.
    I'm sure Timmy is very happy.

    Future
    Right. Patent trolls do make lots of money sometimes, but you have to have
    A. Deep pockets.
    B. Somebody worth going after.

    Patent trolls buy patents and then go after people perceived to be infringing on them usually for years. In this case we would be going after who? Probably a new company or Exide. (Who has no money)
    Also patent trolls are going after people who have violated these patents for years. In our case it would be new companies and small winnings.

    Boeing 787 receives U.S. approval for expanded flying
    http://yhoo.it/TYeClg

    " WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration on Wednesday approved extended operations for Boeing's 787 Dreamliner, a move that will allow a wider range of routes and that marks a vote of confidence in the high-tech jet at a time of renewed scrutiny.

    The approval, known as ETOPS, will allow airlines to fly routes that are up to 330 minutes, or 5-1/2 hours, away from a landing field, versus the 180-minute, or three-hour, limit in place since the Dreamliner was launched in 2011. "

    "Sound management would never allowed this to happen."

    That would be NSC's management who bought the batteries over a year and a half before they would use them.

    Or do you think Axion can somehow forbid a customer from using batteries they bought, took delivery on and paid for?

    I don't think Patrick meant it had anything specific to do with Axion or elephants.
    He meant if you go far away for an account, look at all the hurdles and problems you will have trying to deal with it. This place will have needs and it's in the middle of nowhere.

    "Not even sure how many batteries that is, or whether the form factors are suitable for Axion's production line, but it highlights the time and expense of pursuing every little project."

    As in:
    It dang well better be an elephant or it will never be worth the work ($) you will have to put into it.

    "But as can be seen from page 78, the basis for the award makes no differentiation for system life beyond one year,"

    Which means long life doesn't get a premium.
    Basically it's probably not something Axion should bother bidding on.

    More of a general info for those of us (Such as myself) who are not familiar with the intricacies of these business deals.

    "The National Transportation Safety Board is at odds with the Federal Aviation Administration over the way the 787 was cleared to fly again. The Board has raised new concerns about the way that the lithium-ion batteries used to supply power to critical systems on the 787 are tested to ensure their safety—even suggesting that more rigorous testing is needed."

    "NTSB ISSUES RECOMMENDATIONS ON CERTIFICATION OF LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES AND EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES
    May 22
    http://1.usa.gov/SRFAKe
    WASHINGTON - The National Transportation Safety Board issued a series of recommendations today related to the evaluation and certification of lithium-ion batteries for use in aircraft systems, as well as the certification of new technology.

    To address all of these issues, the NTSB asked the FAA to do the following:

    Develop an aircraft-level thermal runaway test to demonstrate safety performance in the presence of an internal short circuit failure

    Require the above test as part of certification of future aircraft designs

    Re-evaluate internal short circuit risk for lithium-ion batteries now in-service

    Develop guidance for thermal runaway test methods

    Include a panel of independent expert consultants early in the certification process for new technologies installed on aircraft

    As I'm about to go hit a few more potholes I thought I'd ad this hope for the future.

    Advanced Concrete Means Little Maintenance For A Century

    Of course they put it out in the real world starting last August. Come back in 100 years and we'll tell you if it works.
    Sigh.

    Yard slugs basically move very slowly. Starting and stopping constantly. Wind resistance would be nearly nil.

    "Maybe ePower could push the issue and Axion could say "To Hell with Auto". I know that would not sit well with many shareholders that seem to put a big importance on the auto sector."

    Well, I understand the sentiment, but beyond telling shareholders "We have no idea when they might move." (Which they've done.) I'd leave it lay.
    Although I would put a few spare min. into the idea of a 48V pack as OEMs have to design 48V systems them differently from the get go, it might come in handy someday.
