Bush will be visiting a familiar territory – the region that for over a century has been a priority in America’s drive for global hegemony in order to ensure its continued access to major raw materials, trade and vital security and commercial routes. What will be unfamiliar to him is that the trip will not be all pomp and pageantry – he will be greeted by widespread protests enflamed by the illegitimacy of the war on terror and the bane of imperialist globalization."

Mechanical Engineering : News: "Department of Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University
Have you noticed that buying a new computer with higher speed (GHz) does not necessarily mean that it will run faster than your old computer? One reason for this is that faster microprocessors generate more heat, and are often forced to slow down when they become too hot. A related problem is that microprocessor heat sinks, such as fin arrays and heat pipes, are orders of magnitude larger than the silicon chip and are continuing to grow in size. These 'low-tech' bulky heat sinks are crowding away memory, video, and power-delivery components, increasing signal delays among chips and limiting the system speed."
