Energy Use Website

A new website has been launched that communicates essential information about America's energy situation, based on the vast holdings of reports from the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Medicine, and the National Research Council. A finalist for the Webby Award in the category of science, the site called "What You Need to Know About Energy" provides an overview of our current energy system in the United States, and covers the uses for energy, sources of energy, the cost of energy including to cost to the environment, national security, and sustainability, and energy efficiency. It identifies each of the energy sources we rely on today - ranging from wind to nuclear to oil - and tracks how each is used. You'll find it at needtoknow.nas.edu.

TV Energy Star Rating

As of May first, televisions that carry the Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star label are now required to, on average, be 40 percent more efficient than conventional models. Available nationwide, the new sets will help consumers save more energy and money, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while offering the same features and performance. The new requirements represent EPA's most stringent Energy Star TV specification to date. With more than 19 million sets with screens larger than 40 inches expected to ship to American homes this year, the new specifications also offer important savings in larger size TVs. If all televisions sold in the U.S. met the new requirements, Americans would save $2.5 billion annually in energy costs while reducing annual greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to the emissions of about 3 million cars.

Digital Notices to Airmen

The Atlantic City International Airport, located at the Federal Aviation Adminstration's Technical Center, has become the first in the national airspace system to deliver "digital notices to airmen," or NOTAM's. NOTAMs provide computer-generated safety information to pilots and air traffic controllers about conditions at an airport like construction and hazards. FAA Administrator Randy Babbit calls digital information management "key to meeting the air traffic system's safety and efficiency goals," as well as modernizing the national airspace system. Digital NOTAMs have safety and efficiency benefits over traditional NOTAMs, including transmitting to all air traffic management systems simultaneously. And, airspace users get easier to read information. Other airports that will follow the lead of Atlantic City International include: Washington Dulles, Reagan National, B-W-I, Richmond, and Norfolk.

Routing Tables

Internet routing tables are becoming a bigger concern for federal cybersecurity experts, as in recent weeks the protocol for internet routers appears to have been hacked. Traffic from some leading U.S. businesses and government agencies has been re-routed through China. A chief technologist with Neustar says part of the problem is that the Border Gateway Protocol the routers use doesn't require contractual relationships between routers, leading to a structure based on unconfirmed agreements.

Treasury Hacked

The Treasury Department has taken off-line four public websites for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing after a malicious code was found on a parent site. Visitors to the web domains, which provide information about U.S. currency, were redirected to a Ukrainian website that launched a variety of web-based attacks. Treasury officials say the Bureau began using a third-party cloud service provider to host the sites last year. That company suffered an intrusion, resulting in a number of Treasury Web sites being affected.
