Institute of Geoinformatics and Remote Sensing
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) have become key technology tools for the collection, storage and analysis of spatially referenced data. Industries utilising these spatial technologies include agriculture, forestry, mining, market research, environmental analysis as well as the social and medical sciences.
Post Graduate Certificate in GIS and RS course will allow students to build their knowledge and practical expertise in GIS and RS technology and applications.
The structure provides considerable flexibility allowing students to quickly gain the GIS and RS knowledge and qualification they need today, and to add to their credentials at a later date if necessary. Students develop a capacity for independent research, problem analysis and solution.

Anything new about stirling engines in Cal?
Looking for an update. Everything I find from google news is almost a year old. This is from the stirling engine deal with Southern Edison to build a 500MW plant outside of LA.
What geographical areas are best suited for a solar dish farm?
The southwest region of the United States is ideally suited for this. In fact, a solar farm 100 miles by 100 miles could satisfy 100% of the Americaâs annual electrical needs. Solar technology primarily addresses the peak power demands facing utility companies in the Southwest U.S. and other solar-rich areas.
The cost of living and job markets are better than the national average, but the best job strategy is not to go for averages, but look at your specific skills and experiences, figure out which careers that relates to, and then go to that geographical area:

4,000 Year Old Greenlander
WASHINGTON (Reuters) â Scientists have sequenced the DNA from four frozen hairs of a Greenlander who died 4,000 years ago in a study they say takes genetic technology into several new realms.
Surprisingly, the long-dead man appears to have originated in Siberia and is unrelated to modern Greenlanders, Morten Rasmussen of the University of Copenhagen and colleagues found.
"This provides evidence for a migration from Siberia into the New World some 5,500 years ago, independent of that giving rise to the modern Native Americans and Inuit," the researchers wrote in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature
