The Super-Villain himself talks about music, life and everything in-between.
Above: An organic photovoltaic device deposited on printer paper (~120 Âµm thick) that was pre-coated with 100 nm thick oCVD PEDOT electrodes. After multiple foldings the device maintains its initial performance.
MIT scientists created a printing technology that prints solar cells on paper. The inkjet-style printing is still in its embryonic stage and at this point these cells are under 2% efficient at converting sunlight into electricity, but think of the possibilities.
The scientists say the process is low-cost, low-temperature, low-energy-consumption and could pave the way for solar panels so lightweight they could be installed with a staple gun or could be integrated with other materials to boost energy efficiency.
Can you imagine recycling paper then putting solar cells so thin they could be printed on it? Continue reading
Food Network TV star Rachael Ray wants to feed your kids. Because of a partnership between the celebrity “chef” and New York City’s Department of Education up to 600,000 New York City school children will be eating healthier foods from Rachael Ray’s recipes as their school lunch.

Here’s a track off of MF DOOM’s MM Food album. No rapping on this one but lots of entertaining toon clips from cartoons DOOM favors like Fantastic Four, Spiderman and Superman..
When asked about it Ray said:
“I did not see that. It’s unfortunate if there was [a bug]. I think that these schools strive to be the best across the board; I’m sure that includes cleanliness.” Continue reading
