New energy V2
1. Engineers are much needed to develop greener technologies, he says.
2. "The energy sector has a fantastic skills shortage at all levels, both now and looming over it for the next ten years, "he says
3. "Not only are there some good career opportunities, but there's a lot of money going into the research side, too.
4. With the pressure of climate change and the energy gap, in the last few years funding from the research councils has probably doubled.
1. Humans appear to be the only species which is able to translate their communication into another medium, and in this case the medium provides a semi-durable record of the elements of the communication.
2. So reading is a very special ability that we have
3. Reading also is special because, unlike language, most children have to be taught to read, write and spell.

In at least one case, an elephant used her trunk to hurl mud in the drone's direction. "She had her baby with her, said Missy Cummings, the director of Duke's Robotics Lab.
4. The elephants reacted so strongly, the researchers believe, because drones, it turns out, sound a lot like bees. And elephants do not like bees at all.
