A general manager is an executive who has overall responsibility for managing both the revenue and cost elements of a company's income statement, known as profit & loss (P&L) responsibility. A general manager usually oversees most or all of the firm's marketing and sales functions as well as the day-to-day operations of the business. Frequently, the general manager is responsible for effective planning, delegating, coordinating, staffing, organizing, and decision making to attain desirable profit making results for an organization (Sayles 1979).[1] In many cases, the general manager of a business is given a different formal title or titles. Most corporate managers holding the titles of chief executive officer (CEO) or president, for example, are the general managers of their respective businesses. More rarely, the chief financial officer (CFO), chief operating officer (COO), or chief marketing officer (CMO) will act as the general manager of the business but there is level of post between them therefore GM and CEO are different. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_manager

aka Counter Rotating Ring Receiver Reactor Recuperator : Using concentrated Solar Power to reverse combustion, a research team from Sandia National Laboratories is building a prototype device intended to chemically “reenergize” carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide using concentrated solar power. The carbon monoxide could then be used to make hydrogen or serve as a building block to synthesize a liquid combustible fuel, such as methanol or even gasoline, diesel and jet fuel. https://share.sandia.gov/news/resources/releases/2007/sunshine.html (more)

Warren Ellis' Talk at the Thought Bubbles conference, 23 SEPT 2018. It took people a long time to notice that most of the famous cave paintings from the period show sequences of events. That they are in fact sequential art. Some of them were found surrounded by so many stone lamps, which would have burned tinder or fat, that it became obvious that the flickering light would have isolated pieces of the sequence in the viewer’s eye as they traversed the image.

Dani Grant and Nick Grossman of Union Square Ventures: The Myth of The Infrastructure Phase: Our hypothesis is that this is not actually how things play out. We are not in an infrastructure phase, but rather in another turn of the apps-infrastructure cycle. And in fact, the history of new technologies shows that apps (KillerApp) beget infrastructure, not the other way around. (more)
