Geothermal energy development
Initiating a challenging geophysical field
The temperatures of hot springs are known to be
much higher at greater depths. The reason for the occurrence of hot
springs can be due to normal heat flow within the earth or due to
the presence of Hot Dry Rock (HDR). A hot dry rock is created when
hot magama from the interior of the earth intrudes into the earth's
outer layer, also known as the crust. If the event is generally less
than 500 million years old, it will still be anomalously hot due to
the decay of radioactive material within.
On slaves, enslavement and emancipation
If you take all the issues that the world should
concern itself with, they will add up to more than 365. At the rate
we are screwing up things around us and each other, we would soon
have to set aside hours and minutes and might even
celebrate/commemorate a World Anti Book-Burning Minute at the 19th
minute of the 8th hour of the 29th day of June.
Brooding over GSP+?
EU’s Generalised System of Preferences (GSP) is
a trade arrangement by which EU provides preferential access to the
EU market covering 120 countries in the Union to 176 developing
countries in the form of reduced tariff for three years at a time,
encompassing (1) the standard GSP on over 6,200 tariff lines, (2)
the special incentive arrangement for sustainable development and
good governance and (3) The Everything But Arms (EBA) by which it
provides duty free, quota free access to all products for the 39
Least Developed Countries (LDCs).
