Tony Seba and the 'Clean Disruption of Energy and Transportation'

Tony Seba is the author of 'Clean Disruption of Energy and Transportation', a book being enthusiastically read by Environmentalists and Renewable Energy aficionados.  In his book Tony Seba predicts that by 2030 all new vehicles being built will be Electric Vehicles (EVs). The EVs are definitely the future of transportation, but can they become so prevalent in the next 14 years?  Is Tony Seba a renewable technology agent whose book is changing the minds of the general population, paving way for an expedited acceptance of the EVs?  Is Seba the ultimate self-fulfilling prophecy prophet?

A Challenge for the photovoltaic (PV) Industry

A Challenge for the photovoltaic (PV) Industry

When are we going to see a solar-cell making factory being powered solely by photovoltaic panels?  A factory making clean energy products must not run on 'dirty energy.'

Clinton in the White House

People say it is going to be a woman presidency this time--the first time ever in the history of the United States.  Some still remember the male Clinton presidency.  Even with all kinds of conflicts going on in the world at that time the President was able to take time out for Monica.  This time around while the female Clinton is busy at work, the male one will have all the time in the world.  White House women interns beware!

Midnight’s Furies, the Eastern End

Midnight’s Furies, the Eastern End

I still have to read Nisid Hajari’s Midnight’s Furies, but I wonder if in his book he has included the ordeal of a big group of stateless people stranded in present day Bangladesh.  These 300,000 people have suffered from both 1947 and 1971 civil wars in South Asia.

On Saturday, April 10, a fundraiser to help the stateless people in Bangladesh was organized at the Royal Palace Banquet Hall in Fremont by long term Bay Area resident Nadeem Haque and his associates.  Zulki Khan, the CEO of NexLogic Technologies, was the main sponsor of the program. The collected donations will go to OBAT Helpers, a non-profit organization based in Indiana and involved in educational and micro-financing projects in the camps of the stateless people in Bangladesh.  Dr. Maureen Lynch, former Senior Associate on Stateless Initiatives at Refugees International, Herb Behrstock, President of the United Nations Association of the United States of America, Northern California Division, Anwar Khan, the founder of OBAT Helpers, and Dr. John Clark, Director OBAT, spoke at the fundraiser.

An entertainment program featuring Riffat Sultana and group, and Tehseen Javed followed the dinner and the speeches.
