Nature's Hardscapes

The leading tip of the June 27, 2014 flow stalled just a half-mile west of Highway 130, which goes through the small town of Pahoa on the southeast corner of the Big Island. This photo was taken Jan. 24, 2015, showing the lava that oozed down the hill, flowing through fencing and onto the asphalt of the Pahoa Transfer (waste) Station, the 2,000-degree lava heated the rebar in the concrete until the hardscape exploded.

Knoxville Asks ULI for Direction
Knoxville's Sunsphere was constructed for the 1982 World's Fair. The Sunsphere's observation deck on the fourth floor reopened to the public on May 5, 2014. This iconic beacon and the Tennessee Amphitheater are the only structures remaining from the fair in the aptly named World's Fair Park. The Urban Land Institute report recommends the city "activate the edge of World's Fair Park," plus redevelop the area around the Knoxville Civic Auditorium and Coliseum into a mixed-residential neighborhood.

Pipe Power

As water flows through LucidPipe's lift-based turbines, the turbines spin and generate power. Lucid Energy says the hydrodynamic turbines have been lab tested to maximize efficiency and power generation, while limiting the onset of cavitation (bubbles in liquid, i.e., voids). As velocities increase, power production increases. Due to the lift-based design of the LucidPipe turbine, the system generates power across a wide range of velocities.
