Lovely infographic helps us to understand geologic time. I’ve been sent this without a source so please let me know if you know where this lovely piece of work came from.

Interesting article Doone. I hadn't realised before that plate tectonics wasn't accepted until the 1960s 

Comment by Doone has Fremdschämen on January 6, 2019 at 9:09am

in 1912 German geophysicist and meteorologist Alfred Wegener first presented his ground-breaking theory of continental drift arguing that all the continents had once been joined together as a single landmass. The debate raged until the 1960s. Images

I hope this story has some validity 

Chinese Company Says It Will Soon Cross $100 Battery Threshold, Slaying The Gasoline Car

Envision Energy will produce batteries for $100 per kilowatt hour by 2020, the Shanghai company's founder and CEO said at Stanford University, predicting the price will drop to $50 only five years later and end the reign of the internal-combustion engine.
Envision's analysts realized they could achieve these goals after the company purchased Nissan's battery division earlier this year, CEO Lei Zhang said at Stanford University's Global Energy Forum. Stanford just released video of Lei's remarks, which came in response to a slightly more conservative prediction by Stanford's Arun Majumdar.
"I have something to add on to Arun's comment," Lei said. "He mentioned by 2022 we are able to reach $100 per kilowatt hour, but I say we are able to arrive much earlier. By 2020 we are able to deliver the cost of $100 U.S. Just recently we bought a Japanese battery company, so we have very detailed analyzed this trend of cost, so we are able, probably by 2025, to achieve $50 U.S. dollar per kilowatt hour."

New £50 note will feature a British scientist

The new £50 note will feature a prominent British scientist, the Bank of England has announced, with the public being asked for nominations.
In addition to the Queen, the note will include the portrait of an eminent late scientist from fields such as biology, astronomy and medical research.
The public can offer suggestions on the Bank's website over the next six weeks.
There are currently 330 million £50 notes in circulation, with a combined value of £16.5bn, the Bank said.

Debit card payments more popular than cash
The Bank's governor, Mark Carney, made the announcement at the Science Museum in London.
"There is a wealth of individuals whose work has shaped how we think about the world and who continue to inspire people today," he said.
"Our banknotes are an opportunity to celebrate the diversity of UK society and highlight the contributions of its greatest citizens."
Nominations can include anyone who worked in any field of science including astronomy, biology, bio-technology, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, medical research, physics, technology or zoology, the Bank said.
A shortlist will be drawn up by a committee, including four experts in the field, and a final decision will be made by Mr Carney, with the note entering circulation at a date yet to be announced.
