The Allen Coral Atlas is building out a database—fed with satellite imagery—that can detect changes in coral reefs and hopefully help us better manage this dwindling natural resource.


Off the east coast of Australia, the Great Barrier Reef stretches for 1,400 miles. It’s the largest coral reef in the world and long formed the backbone to one of the most complex and diverse natural ecosystems on the plant. But since 2016, half of the coral in the Great Barrier Reef has died. An oceanic heat wave in 2016 killed the algae that live in the coral and provide its

The solar panels will power low-income housing—and then fill up batteries to use when demand peaks.


When the demand for electricity surges in Oakland, California, a power plant burning jet fuel switches on, pumping pollution into the western part of the city. But the plant will soon close—and will be replaced in part by a network of solar panels and batteries installed in affordable apartment buildings in the area.

We can make sure consumers get a fair shake without dismantling the tech giants.



 



As the public and government regulators around the world discuss whether and how to manage the power of technology companies, one idea that keeps coming up is breaking up these large conglomerate corporations into smaller pieces. Public distrust for tech companies has shifted to talk of antitrust action against them. Facebook, for instance, might then have to compete with Instagram for photo-sharing and WhatsApp for messaging—rather than owning both.

Out at Amazon’s cavernous fulfillment center in Staten Island, New York, workers seem conflicted about efforts to unionize the labor force.


It was a bigger week than usual for Amazon, the most valuable public company in the world. On Monday, the first of the company’s Prime Days (a two-day period  in which 175 million items were purchased by Prime members around the world), the employees at Amazon’s Shakopee, MN distribution center walked off the job to call attention to working conditions there. In Germany, Spain, Poland

and the UK,  Amazon workers protested and struck. The Washington, D.C. home of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos drew activists demanding movement from the company on immigration and climate. But it was starkly quiet at JFK8, Amazon’s massive fulfillment center on the West Shore of Staten Island. Shifts began and ended, workers stepped quietly on and off the city buses that operate between Matrix Global Logistics Park and the St. George ferry terminal some 40 minutes away, and nowhere was there a hint of dissent.

Persistent technical setbacks and political infighting have introduced unending delays in our trip back to the lunar surface.


The 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon landing is an occasion for great historical celebration, but also concern at the present state of human space exploration, at least for the United States.

There’s been lots of chatter by lawmakers about reining in or breaking up the tech giants, but the idea of new privacy and antitrust regulation is more a political discussion than a policy one.


There’s steady chatter in Washington about placing some regulatory guardrails around Big Tech companies, which many lawmakers (and their constituents) believe have become too big, too powerful, and too often unwilling or unable to self-regulate. There’s lots of discussion about new data privacy legislation, antitrust actions to break up big tech companies, and the rem

In a public hearing, a Congressman weighed in on an advertiser who unwittingly let a woman’s family know she was pregnant, a database being sold with records on millions of federal employees, creepily tailor-made ads aimed at consumers based on past purchases, and a questionnaire misleadingly used to gather ad targeting data.
