That sounds exciting. I got real excited about Graphene too several years ago. They still talk about it. I still see no fat lady.

Graphene power: Physicists build circuit harvesting limitless, clean energy

“An energy-harvesting circuit based on graphene could be incorporated into a chip to provide clean, limitless, low-voltage power for small devices or sensors,” says lead researcher Paul Thibado in a university release.

I like the Dolly Parton song. Actually, that'd be a great parody for Weird Al.

This hurricane Ida coming toward New Orleans looks really scary. I hope all of you who live in the area are keeping safe.

Phoenix shatters November temperature record that stood since 1949

And it wasn't just Phoenix that experienced record weather. Every corner of the region rewrote its record books in November, including some century-old records that fell during the month's final days.
https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather- ... 49/1055221
While Phoenix couldn't get its thermometers below 80 degrees, residents in Denver failed to see theirs drop below 32 F to contribute any snowfall, producing the first snowless November the city had ever recorded. The previous record for the latest snowfall was Nov. 21, set in 1934.

With no measurable snow since April 22, the city has now gone 223 consecutive days, as of Dec. 1, without the wintry precipitation its nearby mountains are famous for. The all-time record of 235 days, set in 1887, sits within reach.
