The Power of Algae

Wanna know what’s going on at Independent Voter Project’s Policy Conference in Maui next week?

Policy makers and governmental relations representatives attending this year’s Independent Voter Project’s Policy Conference in Maui will kick off the week with an in depth discussion on the potential for algae cultivation as a clean energy resource.

Illinois Has Spoken

Characterized by uncertainty and indecision, we’re all getting a little weary of the Republican Primary this election. Yesterday, IVN gave you 3 reasons why, despite the prolonged election season, the Illinois primary matters:

1. Rick Santorum’s Electability

2. Mitt Romney’s Momentum

3. Obama’s stomping ground 

So here are the results - Romney wins by a 10%+ margin. Does this make Santorum irrelevant? Will this give Romney the momentum he needs to close the race before the August Convention? And as much as the media wants you to forget anyone else is running against Romney and Santorum, let’s not forget about Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich, both candidates who are very much still in the race.

Quote of the Day

“I think that the Israeli government recognizes that, as president of the United States, I don’t bluff. I also don’t, as a matter of sound policy, go around advertising exactly what our intentions are. But I think both the Iranian and the Israeli governments recognize that when the United States says it is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say.”

Barack Obama, to the Atlantic Monthly
