New Platinum Fuel Cells

A new form of platinum that could be used to make cheaper, more efficient fuel cells has been created by researchers at the Department of Energy's S-L-A-C National Accelerator Laboratory and the University of Houston. The process could help enable broader use of the devices, which produce emissions-free energy using hydrogen. Fuel cells hold significant promise for clean energy because the cell's only byproduct is water. But current fuel cell designs can require as much as 100 grams of platinum, pushing their price tags into the thousands of dollars. By tweaking platinum's reactivity, the researchers were able to curtail the amount of platinum required by 80 percent, and hope to soon reduce it by another 10 percent, greatly trimming away at the overall cost.

Broadband Access

Commerce Secretary Gary Locke has announced that nine American Recovery Act investments will go to help bridge the technological divide and boost economic growth nationwide, meeting several goals of that Department. More than $114 million dollars will be awarded to increase broadband access, and adoption, in more than a dozen states. The grants will fund projects that lay the groundwork to bring enhanced high-speed Internet access to thousands of households and businesses and link hundreds of schools, hospitals, libraries, and public safety offices through the internet. All told, the Department has awarded 82 Broadband Technology Opportunities Program grants worth a total of $1.2 billion dollars to expand broadband access through projects in a majority of states and territories.

Cybersecurity Jobs for Vets

There could be some great cybersecurity jobs out there for veterans who want to continue working as civilians in the federal government. Craig Newmark, the founder of CraigsList, writes in the Huffington Post Blog that there is a shortage of cybersecurity experts, and that veterans tend to have strong commitment and good attitudes. While the GI Bill will pay for a veteran's education, some colleges shut down during the summer months - which means tuition payments would stop, while the federal government is looking to train people year round.

Digital Ants

The Pacific Northwest National Lab, part of the Department of Energy, says the Pentagon's computers experience more than five thousand cyber-attacks a day. Now the lab is working on a unique new way to fight cyber-threats with what it calls 'digital ants' that can digitally scurry through a network, cleaning up threats before they occur. The so-called "ants" can follow a virtual "trail" to the source of problems and retrieve information.
