The Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System is said to be revolutionary to the green energy industry. Unfortunately its projected output is lacking. Due to unforeseen and unplanned for weather and technical conditions, the plant is operating at approximately 50% of the output it was proposed to produce.

True projections give the project until 2018 to reach its potential of 140,000 homes/city worth of power but analysts make clear the project is far behind where it was expected to be at this point.

One of the difficult realities faced in the downturn of production is the much higher dependency on natural gas energy the project has required. The boilers in the system were originally expected to need only one hour a day to get the system started. In reality the system has been requiring much more than that at four and a half hours of natural gas energy usage per day.

A new study suggests that a natural compound found in cocoa can reverse age-related memory loss. Unfortunately this compound is often removed during the processing of cocoa that is used in chocolate consumed by individuals as desserts. The compound was also found to be present in some teas and vegetables. The exact amount of compound necessary to have an effect is not known at this time. The study used an amount range of 10 mg to 900 mg a day. The study was done with a specially made cocoa flavanol drink developed by Mars who also subsidized the study.

The summary of the study linked indicates the plants have a sense of their being eaten and send out defensive chemicals in attempt to stop the entity eating the plant from continuing consumption.

The Hill Headline: "Architect Of Romney's Health Bill Says It's ‘The Same' As Obama's." [Hill, 11/16/11]

Jonathan Gruber: "Make No Mistake: The Affordable Care Act Is Based On Massachusetts's Success," And Several Of The Architects Of Romneycare Worked Closely With The Obama Administration "To Translate The Lessons From Massachusetts Onto The National Stage." Jonathan Gruber, Professor of Economics at MIT wrote, "The core of the ACA is the same ‘three legged stool' that was first developed in Massachusetts. Several of the architects of Massachusetts reform, including myself, worked closely with the Administration and Congress to translate the lessons from Massachusetts onto the national stage. And experts project that the ACA will have similar success, reducing the number of uninsured Americans by 30 million." [Jonathan Gruber Op-Ed, The Republican on MassLive, 4/11/12]

Jon Gruber Who Helped Write Obamacare And The Massachusetts Health Care Law: "The Federal Reform Is Simply A More Ambitious Version Of The Massachusetts Reform." "‘The federal reform is simply a more ambitious version of the Massachusetts reform,' said Jon Gruber, a professor of economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge who helped policy makers write both laws. ‘Within three years, we should see that the federal reform has covered the uninsured and stabilized the non-group market covering individuals who now face much higher premiums, Gruber said in a telephone interview."

"If you go back and look at the Washington Post or the New York Times or anything from that period, you will find Jonathan Gruber's name all over it," Rattner said. "Someone who's a leading expert on health care, quoted by everybody, as someone who the White House was using."

"I remember that when I was in the White House he was certainly viewed as an important figure in helping to put Obamacare together,". "The problem is not that Gruber helped them put Obamacare together, because he was the man, the problem is what he's said in the last two weeks and how the White House has handled it."
