All gardeners understand the power of water — the essential molecule for all life to grow. The combination of water, sunlight and vital minerals has generated enough energy to allow trillions of organisms to evolve. It seems fitting, then, that the future of energy production on the earth may depend on water power.
Thanks to the global demand for “clean” energy, engineers are working hard to find efficient ways to generate power from moving water. In the United States, 6 percent of renewable energy comes from hydropower; that’s 70 percent of the country’s renewable energy.
Many states are following the example set by the country’s northern neighbor, Canada, by deregulating the energy market. Consumers are benefitting from lower prices as the result of competition, and some companies are attracting customers by relying on renewable sources of energy rather than fossil fuels.

The first decade of the 21st century saw an explosion of Internet access through the proliferation of the personal computer. The second decade we’re currently halfway through has seen this Web access expand into mobile environments via smartphones, tablets, and exponential availability of wireless connectivity.
What will be the defining technological leap of the next decade? The answer is transportation, and to be quite honest the revolution is already happening. Sure, Tesla and Google get the headlines, but the biggest changes are happening on an industrial scale and appearing in easy-to-miss places.
Safety protocol and procedures have, for example, been increasingly outsourced to artificial intelligence starting in the late-70s with the installation of computers on board commercial airliners. These systems have taken over virtually every aspect of aviation, with human pilots serving less active roles in the cockpit with every new generation of aircraft unveiled.

2015 is the year of cyber-attacks: more and more companies of all sizes have been the victim of crimes online. It has become something all companies must guard against, especially in industries where sensitive information about customers is stored. ‘More of our lives are carried out online,’ says James Chappell, co-founder and CTO of cyber security intelligence company Digital Shadows. He goes on in a recent article on FusionWire (powered by Misys): ‘Because of that, many types of fraud we’ve experienced as traditional crime are also moving online.’ All industries need to have protections in place to ensure both their customers and their business’ reputation are protected.
The size and scope of the internet means tracking cyber criminals is much trickier than it used to be but with the right technology, there is no excuse for any big corporation not to protect their customers. Below is a closer …
We are living in the age of the startup. The Great Western Narrative has always been to live and die with a company, working for the same firm for decades to build something over your entire lifetime. Recently though, in an uncertain economy with real wages stagnant, the temptation to quit your day job and become an entrepreneur has never seemed more present.

Happily, recent technological developments are making hardware startups easier than ever.
Following the Crowd
The first innovation that is making hardware startups more possible is the advent of crowdfunding. In the past, the ability to invest in …
Not long ago televised football paled in comparison to actually attending the event. Coverage wasn’t the best, nor were the on-field cameras. A few decades ago televisions were just starting to make real progress with the display.
But now the opposite can be argued. In many ways watching the game on television is now better than being there in person. So much so, stadiums have their own giant displays to provide televised coverage as the action happens on the field. Tailgaters bring televisions and watch games in the parking lot instead of going in the stadium.
Technology is bounding forward and bringing us our favorite games in entirely new ways. While 3D hasn’t really panned out in sports entertainment, plenty of other entertainment system features have seriously improved the viewing experience.
TVs That Go Anywhere
The improved technological components allow for slimmer and slimmer …

To say the internet has revolutionized the way we live is an understatement. Because of the internet and it ever-increasing inclusion in the lives of people, the world is truly a global village. With the advent of the internet, there are fewer mysteries of the world around us, but it’s more than just some giant trove of information.
Networking and Communications

Customer relationship management (CRM) used to be as simple as keeping an address book or Rolodex filled with customer contacts. Today, businesses handle an enormous amount of information ranging from addresses and phone numbers to personal shopping and buying preferences. Business owners require a more sophisticated system to handle it all and often wind up relying on separate software for eCommerce and CRM.
Segmenting important data between platforms makes it difficult to deliver the personalized brand experience that customers have come to expect. To succeed in the competitive world of online business, it’s necessary to integrate eCommerce interactions with CRM to get the clearest possible picture of customer behaviors.
