OMB tells all agencies to go back to Grants.gov

HHS upgraded the portal and it is now ready to handle the large number of applications. OMB had moved 10 of the largest grant making agencies away from the portal last spring because of concerns the system could not handle the influx of applications from the Recovery Act.

Anticounterfeiting $100 Note

Officials from the Department of the Treasury, the Federal Reserve System and the Secret Service have unveiled the new design for the $100 note, complete with advanced technology to combat counterfeiting. Among new security features in the redesigned note are a 3-D Security Ribbon and the so-called "Bell in the Inkwell." The blue Ribbon on the front of the bill contains images of bells and the number 100 that move and change as you tilt the note. The Bell in the Inkwell changes color from copper to green when the note is tilted, an effect that makes it seem to appear and disappear within a copper inkwell. The new security features come after more than a decade of research.The new note will be issued on February 10th of 2011.

Earthquake Detection

The U.S. Geological Survey has awarded $2.7 million in cooperative agreements under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to several American universities and UNAVCO, Incorporated, to improve networks that detect minute changes in the earth's crust caused by faulting in earthquake-prone regions. The agency says monitoring the changes - undetectable except through the methods of advanced technology - is an integral part of assessing the likely rate of large earthquakes. They say, for optimal performance in real time, many existing monitoring stations will need modern sensors and improved communication systems. Funds provided through six cooperative agreements will improve monitoring capabilities by replacing obsolete sensors.

Energy Efficiency Retrofits

In observation of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, the Vice President's Office announced the selection of 25 communities for up to $452 million in Recovery Act funding to "ramp-up" energy efficiency building retrofits. Under a Department of Energy initiative, communities, governments, private sector companies and non-profits will work together on programs for concentrated retrofits of neighborhoods and towns - and eventually entire states. Meeting one of the Energy Department's missions, the models are expected to save households and businesses about a $100 million annually in utility bills, while leveraging private sector resources, to create what could be as many as 30,000 new jobs over the next three years.

Iran not alone in seeking a nuclear weapon

A nuclear arms race in the Middle East is one of the biggest concerns among western diplomats. Iran is at the center of this issue. Experts like Dr. David Kay, a former U.N. weapons inspector have said repeatedly that if Iran is successful in building a nuclear weapon, other countries in the region will feel compelled to do the same just to protect themselves. As a result, the Saudi press agency reports officials there have established a renewable energy complex, confirming the country's interest in nuclear energy.
