Researchers aim to harvest the sun's energy in cheap, new ways
The Globe and Mail
To a Grade 4 science class, the idea of photosynthesis could hardly be more straight-forward: It's that thing plants do when they turn sunlight into food. But with world demand for energy expected to double by mid-century and scientists warning that fossil fuel emissions must be throttled back at the same time to avoid the worst effects of climate change — photosynthesis is increasingly looking like a road map to the future.

Conference Board of Canada sees bounce-back for city's economy
Winnipeg Free Press
Winnipeg's economy lost a bit of steam this year, but an anticipated increase in manufacturing and construction activity should provide a nice rebound in 2015, according to the latest economic forecast from the Conference Board of Canada.
In its Autumn 2014 Metropolitan Outlook report released recently, the Ottawa-based think-tank predicts Winnipeg will finish the year with 2.2 per cent economic growth. That would be down a couple of notches from 2013's real gross domestic product growth rate of 2.4 per cent.
Eco-friendly Winnipeg building puts energy back on the grid
The Manitoba Paddling Club spends a lot of time on the water. After seeing Winnipeg's rivers littered with garbage, the club wanted to make a difference for the environment.
"We always see the garbage and everything that has been dumped," said Jerome Seremak, paddling coach.
The club building has 30 solar panels on the roof that produce 7.5 kilowatts. It's the most powerful solar power installation in Manitoba.

5 lessons for Canada from Germany's clean energy revolution
When Dr. David Jacobs comes to North America from Europe, he hears the same myths repeated over and over about Germany's state-led shift to a zero-carbon society. Replacing oil, coal, gas and nuclear with wind and solar will tank the economy; clean energy is a luxury only citizens of wealthy European countries can afford; and embracing it hasn't even reduced carbon emissions. "There are lots of very basic misconceptions," he said during a recent interview at Vancouver's Georgia Hotel.
Solar gets cheap, challenges energy markets
Winnipeg Free Press
One of the truisms of the 1970s was that solar power was a pipe dream. The price was too high — not just a little too high, but absurdly high. When Ronald Reagan came into office and ripped out the solar panels that Jimmy Carter had put on the White House, conservatives saw it as a triumph of economic rationality over wooly-headed fantasies.
But like so many other things we learned in the 1970s, this fact is rapidly becoming a non-fact.
Let there be LED light: Sistine Chapel masterpieces to be lit up for first time in 30 years
One of the greatest artistic masterpieces in the world will be revealed in all its glory thanks to the simple miracle of LED lighting.
The Sistine Chapel, painted by Renaissance icon Michelangelo, has had its windows shut since the 1980s after it was found sunlight's ultraviolet radiation damaged the colours of the paintings that decorate its ceiling and walls.
However, the harsh halogen lights that now illuminate the chapel left tourists squinting to see what they could of the beautiful images.
