They have less than BMG .50 cartridges, I believe, and they are constrained by different laws concerning automatic weapons with more than ten rounds to the cartridge and some other generic descriptions. This particular list is on top of the general definitions of proscribed arms.

I did not notice the SKS on the list, or the M-1 Garand, or the M-1 Carbine. I guess they're okay, huh?

Well, Amos, I'll tell ya. Folks from the state of California just visited my brother's place and made a list of all the guns he owns. They thought it was simpler to do that than to work it out themselves.

"A solar cell that mimics photosynthesis has been used to make hydrogen directly from water. The prototype is inefficient, but the researchers who built it believe they can boost its efficiency, perhaps leading to a viable source of hydrogen to fuel cars and other vehicles.


The device, built by Thomas Mallouk of Pennsylvania State University and colleagues, works much like a solar cell called a Grätzel cell, using sunlight to knock electrons off dye molecules. But instead of being used to create a current, as in the Grätzel cell, the electrons are shuttled away from the dye and into a catalyst, where they split water molecules into oxygen and hydrogen ions in a reaction similar to one stage of natural photosynthesis.

Other dye-based approaches to splitting water haven't worked very well because the electrons often recombine with the dye before they can be used. Mallouk says that the problem was a matter of arranging the molecular circuitry to channel the electrons effectively, avoiding such "short circuits".

His solution is to attach ruthenium-based dye molecules to a catalyst particle, clinging so closely that any electrons knocked out of the dye are directed into the catalyst. "The key thing is to get everything small and individually packaged," Mallouk told New Scientist.

In the new device, water is split a thousand times faster than in other dye-based cells.
Elegant and original"The attractive feature of the work is that the dye is wrapped around the iridium oxide nanoparticles. This is a very elegant and original approach," says Michael Grätzel of the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland, inventor of the Grätzel cell.

The approach may also be more promising than semiconductor approaches, which are incredibly complex, says James Durrant of Imperial College, London, UK."

Hey, Amos, there is a talk at UTA that you should come listen to:

Triple-Point Shear Layers in Gaseous Detonation Waves

    Dr. Luca Massa, a visiting professor at Clemson University, will describe the role of vortical structures associated with Kelvin-Helmholtz instability in the formation of localized ignition. Recent experiments have shown intriguing regions of intense luminescence or 'hot spots' in the vicinity of triple-point shear layers in propagating gaseous detonation waves. Localized explosions have also been observed to develop in these fronts. The mechanical & aerospace engineering department sponsors the free event.


Took a minute to realize this didn't have to do with getting extra green stamps for getting a hair cut at the water park gas station . . .
