California lost nearly 10,000 solar jobs in 2018

California’s solar industry shed nearly 10,000 jobs last year over uncertainty about the Trump administration’s tariffs on imported solar panels and state policy changes, a new report reveals. The tariffs were set in January 2018, beginning at 30 percent with a 5-percentage point reduction each year through 2022. But the uncertainty that surrounded the taxes before they were imposed led to project delays — particularly for large, utility-scale installations, according to The Solar Foundation’s N...

Which is the best email client on the iOS?

Which is the best email client on the iOS? Right now I think it is Edison mail. The default email app on iPhone is called Mail. This app doesn’t do a great job searching. For most people searching is how they find stuff in email. Edison is fantastic at searching and so much faster and more complete than the default Mail mail program. In fact, if you are using the default Mail program you are doing yourself a disservice because it is not the best tool for the job. Outlook for iOS is another popul...

This Week In Trailers: Life After Flash, It’s a Hard Truth Aint It, Chasing the Moon, Concrete Kids, Stay Free: The Story of The Clash

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we reconnect with the O.G. Flash Gordon, watch a trailer for a podcast, celebrate Apollo 11, remember what it was like to sneak out ...

How Searching for My Nephew Gave New Meaning to Psalm 139

We couldn’t find him anywhere — my nephew, whom I see every day. Our precious blessing with an extra chromosome had wandered deep in the woods. Ten minutes, thirty, forty-five minutes turned to sixty. The minutes merged together as emotions swirled, and desperation descended. Dozens of friends rallied together — searching, shouting, turning brush, looking in deep crevices. With voices raw and hearts heavy, the panic was palpable. One of the main problems? When Edison wanders, he hides. When he k...

Five of the Best Email Apps on iOS (mac rumors)

Email apps are a popular App Store category for one simple reason - almost all of us need to access email on our iPhones and iPads. While Apple has its own Mail app built into iOS devices, some people want a more feature rich experience. Luckily there are plenty of developers out there who are trying to create the perfect iOS inbox, but it's hard to sort through the dozens of email apps available. We dove into the App Store in our latest YouTube video and rounded up a handful of the best emai...

Will San Onofre spur a Yucca Mountain revival?

One thing was very clear after a near-disastrous almost- accident last summer at the now-defunct San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station beside the Orange-San Diego county line: Canisters of radioactive waste from the shuttered plant already placed for “temporary” storage on its grounds and new containers not yet placed must go somewhere else, as soon as possible. The problem is, there is no other place and virtually no one wants an atomic dump anywhere near their home. That’s why nuclear waste is...

Harry Edison: The Swinger

Trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison is perhaps best known for providing chrome-tinged obbligatos behind jazz-pop singers. His muted trumpet can be heard playing tightly wound touches on the albums of singers such as Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald. When they paused between verses, arrangers had Edison fill the space. At times, he mirrored the vocalist's phrasing before disappearing back into the band. But Edison was much more than a colorist or sideman. He recorded a wealth of leadership albums ...

Theranos documentary review: The Inventor’s horrifying optimism

A blood-splattered Theranos machine nearly pricks an employee struggling to fix it. This gruesome graphical rendering is what you’ll walk away from HBO’s “The Inventor” with.

The documentary that premiered tonight at Sundance Film Festival explores how the move fast and break things ethos of Silicon Valley is “really dangerous when people’s lives are in the balance” as former e...

Lawmakers here today, gone to Maui

As November and its slight autumnal chill — along with whipping Santa Ana winds, and  huge wildfires in the north and the south — descends upon California every year, a state legislator’s mind turns to … well, naturally, to the Hawaiian island of Maui. That’s where 10 members of the California Assembly and two state senators gathered this past November along with some of the state’s top power company officials at the Fairmont Kea Lani resort. It was four days of mai tais, long walks on the beach...

This earthquake guide will help prepare your business for the next big one

Southern California is a known center of earthquake activity, yet many businesses in the region are ill prepared for another major shaker. Budgets, deadlines, vendor contracts, taxes … these are the things most business owners are occupied with. But with the 25th anniversary of the Jan. 17, 1994 Northridge Earthquake upon us, companies would be well advised to develop a plan to better insulate their operations from the destructive power of large quakes. And that next big one? It could be right a...

Kids help restore white seabass population, but report says state program is ineffective

At a Huntington Harbour dock Thursday afternoon, 11 Edison High students clustered around a cooler filled with baby white seabass. The fish’s population in the wild has dwindled over the past half century. The kids used a scanner to check the tags embedded in the 8″ specimens, which they’d raised in a tank at their Huntington Beach school. They then lowered them one by one in the water and bid them adieu. “Bye Brandon,” went one farewell. But Brandon’s future could be a short one, according to s...

An agonizing wait as hundreds still trying to return to homes in Woolsey fire area

When the devastating Woolsey fire swept through parts of Los Angeles and Ventura counties starting on Nov. 8, the flames left thousands of residents homeless or displaced. But while firefighters doused the remains of the blaze last week, hundreds still agonizingly wait to be allowed back to their properties — more than 21 days after the wildfire first was reported, a wide swath of the unincorporated canyon areas north of Malibu and south of Agoura Hills remain under mandatory evacuations, off li...

Climate change not a fuel: Letters

Re “Edison speaks out on the utilities and the wildfires” (Nov. 16): It was over 10 years ago when Al Gore said that “we only hand a decade left to save planet Earth from global warming.” Guess what? Gore and his ilk are wrong. Planet Earth is still here and we are doing fine. You don’t suppose the “experts” are incorrect? Indeed, scientists are people, who just like everyone else, become married to their ideas and theories, which means they only acknowledge data that verifies their conclusions....

Southern California Edison sued by group of people affected by the Woolsey fire

LOS ANGELES — A group of people affected by the Woolsey fire that continues to burn in the Malibu area filed a lawsuit against Southern California Edison, accusing the utility of failing to shut off power in the area despite extreme fire conditions, attorneys announced Tuesday. The Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit, filed Friday, contends Edison turned off power in the area only after the blaze began, and by then the electrical outage caused a loss of water pressure for firefighters and residen...

Electrification 2.0: Rural broadband co-ops are filling the void left by indifferent monopolists

Writing in Wired, frequent Boing Boing contributor Clive Thompson praises the rise of rural broadband co-operatives that are springing up to provide internet access to their far-flung, widespread communities, comparing them to the rural electrification co-ops that sprang up to provide power to farmers neglected by the monopolistic Edison trusts. Thompson is both onto something and somewhat off the mark here. The comparison between electrification and broadband is a very apt one: without e...

Rejection of Proposition 6 doesn’t end the taxpayer revolt

It is understandable that many California taxpayers are disappointed with the election results. The defeat of Proposition 6 means that last year’s big increases in both the car tax and the gas tax imposed on us by Sacramento politicians will remain in effect and California’s drivers are stuck having the second-highest gas tax in the nation. Tax-and-spend progressives are interpreting the defeat of Prop. 6 as a green light to impose even higher taxes. In fact, some now believe that the iconic Pro...

New Medicare price controls don’t put ‘America first’

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar just released a sweeping proposal that would drastically change how Medicare pays for advanced cancer therapies and other potent medicines. The plan relies on foreign price controls to reduce drug spending by $17 billion over five years. Although drug spending may decline, as the Congressional Budget Office has noted, the plan could result in increased healthcare spending elsewhere, as patients will inevitably lose access to medicines. So while the s...
