NREL examines solar policy pathways for states - EurekaAlert NEW!
Featured in this release are research papers on the following topics: 'Cassini sheds light on Titan's second largest lake, Ligeia Mare'; 'Tectonic stress feedback loop explains U-shaped glacial valleys'; 'Measuring the effect of water vapor on climate warming'; 'First assessment of noctilucent cloud variability at midlatitudes'; 'Modeling surface circulation patterns in the Gulf of Mexico'; and 'New algorithm to improve earthquake early warning systems.'
The Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has published a report that aligns solar policy and market success with state demographics. By organizing the 48 contiguous states into four peer groups based on shared non-policy characteristics, the NREL research team was able to contextualize the impact of various solar policies on photovoltaic installations.

Over 160,000 WordPress sites used as DDoS zombies - PC World NEW!

And the three apps that Google highlighted as part of its program address some of the weaknesses Google Docs (now part of Google's Drive cloud-storage service) has compared to Office itself."To help take some of that work off your shoulders, today we're launching add-onsâ€”new tools created by developer partners that give you even more features in your documents and spreadsheets" Saurabh Gupta, a Google product manager, wrote in a blog post on Tuesday.Â To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

The affected site wasnâ€™t named.The attack exploited an issue with the XML-RPC (XML remote procedure call) implementation in WordPress thatâ€™s used for features like pingback, trackback, remote access from mobile devices and others, and brought back into the spotlight the denial-of-service risks associated with this functionality that have been known since 2007.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

It doesnâ€™t make loans, instead helping lenders reduce risk by factoring social media profiles into their scoring systems.Venerable U.S. credit scoring agency FICO worried some in early January, when a report in the Wall Street Journal suggested it might one day consider using Facebook profiles in its credit scoring process.
