MoIT concerned over potential electricity shortages Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Tuan Anh sounded the alarm about the high risk of power shortages at a meeting earlier this week. In a report sent to the Government and the National Assembly, the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) said extreme weather conditions have left many hydropower plants without enough water to produce electricity. The MoIT plans to import 20 million tonnes of coal in 2020 and 35 million tonnes in 2035. It also added the local supply of gas was not enough to generate electricity for projects in the southeast and the southwest of the country. There are more than 10 projects in the area accounting for 16 percent of total capacity in Viet Nam.

But not just any old glasses: specifically, the Microsoft Hololens. It looks like a bulky set of safety goggles. And it layers digital information over the real world. In this case, it scans the curved panel, makes its calculations, and shows the technician exactly where each fastener should go. Productivity experts are gushing about the potential benefits of augmented-reality devices such as the Hololens and Google Glass. When Google first demonstrated its smart glasses in 2012, their prospects seemed quite different. They were seen as a … [Read more...] about Why do billions of people still not have glasses?
