” Making carbon-based products from CO2 is nothing new, but carbon dioxide molecules are so stable that those reactions usually take up a lot of energy. If that energy were to come from fossil fuels, over time the  would ultimately result in more carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere—defeating the purpose of a process that could otherwise help mitigate climate change.

Professor Yun Hang Hu’s research team developed a heat-releasing reaction between carbon dioxide and Li3N that forms two chemicals: amorphous carbon nitride (C3N4), a semiconductor; and lithium cyanamide (Li2CN2), a precursor to fertilizers.

“The reaction converts CO2 to a solid material,” said Hu. “That would be good even if it weren’t useful, but it is.”

And how much  does it release? Plenty. Hu’s team added  to less than a gram of Li3N at 330 degrees Celsius, and the surrounding temperature jumped almost immediately to about 1,000 degrees Celsius, or 1,832 degrees Fahrenheit, about the temperature of lava exiting a volcano. “

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is still drawing flak for having the temerity to appear in his trademark hoodie at a pivotal bank-sponsored meeting with potential investors in New York this week. The meeting kicked off the company’s planned nine-day “roadshow” to sell shares to the public for the first time.

The landmark IPO is expected to value the social networking giant at nearly $100 billion, and some analysts and pundits thought the occasion merited a suit and tie. “He’s actually showing investors he doesn’t care that much; he’s going to be him,” Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachtertold Bloomberg TV. “I think that’s a mark of immaturity. I think that he has to realize he’s bringing investors in as a new constituency right now, and I think he’s got to show them the respect that they deserve because he’s asking them for their money.”

Zuckerberg has been known to dress up on occasion, but the hoodie has become his trademark and is considered normal business atirtire in California’s Silicon Valley, where Facebook is based. In Facebook’s public roadshow” video touting the company’s prospects, Zuckerberg appears in a T shirt.”

 

Seriously? Security analyst says

“I think that’s a mark of immaturity. I think that he has to realize he’s bringing investors in as a new constituency right now, and I think he’s got to show them the respect that they deserve because he’s asking them for their money.”

Dear Analyst,

I think you making that statement is a sign of your inability to see past the suit. It is a sign of your opinion being impaired with judging a book by its cover. This kid in a hoodie is richer than you will ever be. He can afford his own brand of eccentricity. If I had THAT kind of money, I would not even bother with pants. I’d wear a kilt and a cock-ring. Or whatever I am comfortable wearing at the moment. Hoodies are super comfortable. My comfort is more important than conformity to some idiotic dress-code you seem to cherish so very much. What does it matter if I wear a suit? Does this suit add to my ability to generate retarded amounts of money? Those investors are not investing their money into my fashion sense. Hoodies are functional. Please explain to me what is the function of a necktie? I believe it is worn as symbol. It indicates belonging to a group of people who believe in “proper attire.” Proper attire which implies exclusivity. Exclusivity that screams that this group is more entitled than the rest of the masses. Think on that, investors. What is more important to you, attempt at exclusivity, or attempt at cranking out a shitload of money in comfort? Would you trust someone whose ways of gaining recognition involve playing dress-up, or someone who shows individuality and bravery in their way of thinking and approaching things… from their attire and to factual wealth in their control?

Just a thought.
