Iran Presidential Hopeful, 12, Wants to Move Israel to Hawaii

A 12-year-old Iranian schoolboy who hopes to unseat hardline president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has vowed that, if elected, he will resettle Israelis in Hawaii, The Scotsman reported on Friday.

“I will buy Hawaii, Obama’s birthplace, from the United States and lease it to the Israelis who will go to live there – so that they don’t kill children in Gaza,” the Scottish daily quoted presidential candidate Kourosh Mozouni as saying…

What a Project Better Place Battery Changing Station May Look Like

Yokohama, Japan — Better Place today achieved a milestone in accelerating the mass-market adoption of electric vehicles by demonstrating the worlds first battery switch technology along with electric car charging spots. This simple range extension technology delivers a cleaner, more convenient experience for drivers.

Better Place showcased its battery switch platform today using a modified NISSAN electric crossover SUV to demonstrate how to switch a depleted battery for a fully charged one. The company also demonstrated its commitment to open network standards by charging a fixed battery electric car, via one of four Better Place charge spots installed at the demonstration site. Recharging of the vehicle batteries is made possible by Sharp Corp. photovoltaic solar panels, creating a truly zero emission solution.

Damon Tucker’s WEBlog? NOPE… Damon Tucker’s Blog

After nearly 9 months blogging and talking to a few people tonight… My head is spinning about a few things…

But why in the heck did I call this blog… “Damon Tucker’s WEBlog” ..

Instead of just Damon Tucker’s Blog.

Truth be known… I don’t really have an answer.

It certainly isn’t written in stone anywhere!

So from this point on….

I’m calling this..

Damon Tucker’s Blog

All corrections will be made tomorrow when I feel like toying on the computer.

What in the heck was I thinking… “Weblog” vs. “BLOG”.  (Old school thinking I guess)

Duh!
