Had a very interesting morning commute to school today. While thoroughly enjoying my mix of NPR (pretty relative news) and WMNR (classical radio station) I passed a random Military convoy on I-84 in Southington. There were three large white buses with completely tinted windows. There were about 6 or 7 humvees and two or three large transport trucks.

On an interesting news note; apparently a scientist from MIT with a background in music has been working in collaboration to create a solar powered – liquid metal – battery. A battery of about 40 foot cargo box could power 200 homes. Reducing the size to a large fridge, community power could be generated from homes with solar panels. Thought this was a pretty revolutionary concept.

Hope you all have a great day!
