Mpg For Speed - Fuel Efficiency Vs. Speed
Chart of highway automobile fuel efficiency at different speeds. Incomplete data though. They show a generic chart that doesn't take into account area (SUVs lose more at higher speeds than short/aerodynamic cars). You can see the difference above 55mph in the second chart, but it'd be nice if that chart also showed lower speeds to back up the data from the first chart. Comments on http://www.greencarcongress.com/2006/05/fuel_consumptio.html suggest that the data might be wrong though :(

A comparative study of screen space ambient occlusion methods
"In this report we present a comparison between six screen-space ambient occlusion (SSAO) methods. The aim is to compare their strengths and weaknesses and ultimately to find a superior method. The methods are chosen to differ algorithmically to get the broadest overview as possible. We find that a method known as Alchemy AO is the superior approach. The report also includes discussions of topics related to the field of ambient occlusion in general. "

C4 carbon fixation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"C4" plants use a different carbon chemistry than "C3" plants. They are more drought tolerant and remove significantly more CO2 from the atmosphere than C3 plants. Researchers are developing a C4 variant of rice, which would use a lot less water and farmland than the conventional C3 form of rice.
