"I live in Albuquerque, too. As you mentioned, we have plenty of wind during the string. But as a father of a kite-loving daughter, I can testify that most days here are not that windy. We have plenty of opportunity for solar however, since we get tons of sunshine."

Rob, we cannot assure the availability of both sunlight and wind throughout the year. That's the reason; we had implemented hybrid models, so that one or another will, be there throughout the year.

Acutually, MyDesign, Albuquerque is a good city for a combo of wind and solar. Right now, it's overcast and windy. When it clears up, the wind will go, but the sun will come out.

Rob, I'm afraid I feel the same way you used to. When I drive about 60 miles west of Chicago, I see great groups of wind turbines in the farm lands. They do detract from the serene look of that area.

This process is normal, a city will always expend in its suburbs and these areas will become the new city's neighborhoods. A good example is the new homes in South Lyon, Michigan. If you are interested, click to view more details about this new community.

@daniell: Well yes it will expand automatically. The most difficult part is to get the main part right. After that the other parts will expand automatically.

I don't think that is expend automatically, it would to easy if this thing will happen. Of course, you need a vision, some planning, financial support and a lot of work.

Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?

NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
