Quotes

"The idea is to make platforms ‘feel’ using a skin of sensors in the same way humans or animals do" senior research scientist Lydia Hyde, who instigated the project, said in a statement
Sean Slatter is the CEO of LSI and issued this statement. "We are pleased to be selected as a business partner by Tempus Global Data. We have watched with great interest the development of this next generation of weather data gathering and forecasting. Many of the government agencies we work with every day have expressed concern that the U S weather technology on orbit is aging and rapidly becoming obsolete. Inside the government there is great demand for the clarity that comes from a persistent sensor flying at GEO orbit. The Tempus approach is dynamic and long overdue."
"Wind turbine makers are capable to meet proposed higher targets of the government. Higher volumes will bring down average cost of installations and even tariff to make wind power more attractive. By resolving issues related to wind power evacuation and renewable power purchase obligations of the state utilities, India can attract domestic investments in the sector that is getting increasing attention of global investments" said IWTMA chairman Madhusudan Khemka, who is MD of Chennai-based Regen Powertech
..."We suspect it to be caused by effluents from the dyeing units in Telungupalayam and Seeranaickenpalayam," says Murali. "We have submitted numerous complaints in the last three to four years" says Murugesan Thevar, a resident of Vedapatti
