  17. Please join us for our next Readers' Corner discussion at 8:30 PM (EST) on December 16th [1:30 AM (GMT) December 17th for those in other time zones] for a discussion of Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven" and his short story "The Tell Tale Heart". During our last meeting, those of us familiar with Poe's works indicated that Hammett's story "The Glass That Laughed" reminded us of the former's story "The Tell-Tale Heart". During the discussion it became the it became obvious that about half of our members were unfamiliar with Poe, or at least not well versed in the body of his prose and poetry. One reader asked if Poe were not the writer of that poem about a crow. After we scraped Koach off the ceiling, we explained that the poem, one of the most well known in American literature, is called "The Raven". We will devote our next chat to looking at Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" as a possible early model for last weeks Hammett story, and to examining "The Raven" as a window into the psyche of the inventor of the detective story as well as a pioneer author of gothic horror tales. I think you will enjoy reading both the story and the poem (neither is so long as to be a burden), and the discussion should be fun. There are numerous web sites devoted to Poe's works--several associated with educational or literary research organizations and/or to organizations devoted to preserving the authors history and works. You can easily find both the story and the poem with a simple google search looking for the work by its title. I recommend you use the texts published on the PoeStories.com. They have some obsolete words annotated with definitions or explanations of the understood classical meanings of the symbols. The story is available online at: https://poestories.com/read/telltaleheart The poem is avaialbe at: https://poestories.com/read/raven As usual we will meet in the #readers_corner chatroom on Koach.com: Webchat: http://koach.com/cha...=readers_corner mIRC Users: /server -m chat3.koach.com:6667 -j #readers_corner I hope to see you all there.

    LOL that's very funny
  20. California Auto Bill

    That's pretty interesting. You make some good points too, Chirp. In 23 years the technology will certainly be good enough to do that. I suppose it's possible that there may be solar cells efficient enough to provide enough electricity to charge the batteries. But, otherwise, I don't know where the power will come from. It will be interesting to see how the bill progresses.
  21. Dinner tonight

  22. Dinner tonight

    Made pot roast tonight. Isn't that beautiful? yum lol
  23. California Auto Bill

    I could not help from laughing when reading this. Don't get me wrong I am all for clean air. I see several problems with this. First there is no triggering mechanism in place to suspend the implementation of this law if no suitable technology exists in this 23-year period to replace Gasoline burning cars. Some people that advocate electric cars even if the battery technology in 23 years is better than today don't seem to understand this energy has to be produced somewhere. Currently at this time the electrical grid in California is at almost 100%. If I remember correctly California is already importing power today. According to figures released by the US Energy Information administration currently 84% of all electrical generation in the US uses fossil fuels. All electrical cars will do is trade one form of fossil fuel usage for another. In relationship to future tech 23 years while it seems like a long period is is not. Can you imagine the chaos that will ensue in California if autos are banned and everybody is required to use electric cars with the limitations California has on its power Grid? It will take BILLIONS of $$$ to beef up that power grid to handle this load. Will they have this kind of cash? Who will be ponying up this cash? If the state expects the utilities to do it without MAJOR rate hikes they are delusional. Either way the people of California will pay for this. Maybe in 23 years some good alternate form of energy will be discovered, then again maybe not. Without that triggering mechanism in place a lot of politicians are going to have live fires under their rears. I find myself hoping this does pass and become law, serves the people of California right for electing these dunderheads to start with!
  24. California Auto Bill

    California Bill in the Works to Banish Gasoline Cars by 2040 A California lawmaker wants to put the state alongside China, France and the U.K. and have its legislature consider a ban on vehicles powered by fossil fuels. California Assembly member Phil Ting, a Democrat who is chairman of the chamber’s budget committee, said he plans to introduce a bill that, starting in 2040, would allow the state’s motor vehicles department to register only “clean” vehicles that emit no carbon dioxide, such as battery-electric or hydrogen fuel-cell cars. “Until you set a deadline, nothing gets done,” Ting, who represents much of San Francisco, said in a phone interview Tuesday. “It’s responsible for us to set a deadline 23 years in advance.” Ting said he’ll introduce the bill when lawmakers return to Sacramento next month for the upcoming legislative session. If adopted, it would eliminate a huge chunk of carbon emissions from the transportation sector -- now the top source of the greenhouse gas in the U.S. -- as part of the state’s quest to slash emissions by 80 percent from 1990 levels by 2050. Ting isn’t the first official from the state with the largest market for new vehicle sales in the U.S. to openly consider a ban on internal-combustion engines. The topic has been discussed at the California Air Resources Board, the state’s powerful air quality regulator, after Governor Jerry Brown showed interest in similar moves by other countries, including China. “I’ve gotten messages from the governor asking, ‘Why haven’t we done something already?’” CARB Chairman Mary Nichols said in September, referring to China’s planned phase-out of fossil-fuel vehicle sales. “The governor has certainly indicated an interest in why China can do this and not California.”
