I wanted an electric train for Christmas but I got the saxophone instead.
When Thomas Edison worked late into the night on the electric light he had to do it by gas lamp or candle. I'm sure it made the work seem that much more urgent.
Pain reaches the heart with electrical speed but truth moves to the heart as slowly as a glacier.
And what's interesting about the hybrids taking off is you've now introduced electric motors to the automobile industry. It's the first radical change in automobile technology in 100 years.
And so when I moved to IBM I moved because I thought I could apply technology. I didn't actually have to do my engineer - I was an electrical engineer but I could apply it. And that was when I changed. And when I got there though I have to say at the time I really never felt there was a constraint about being a woman. I really did not.
In 1978 I entered Tohoku University into the Department of Electrical Engineering Faculty of Technology.
Look at countries like China they are determined to dominate all clean technology areas putting lots of money into wind solar electric vehicles and battery storage. America's political impotence caused by their terrible partisanship will see them left behind.
My mum is a school teacher and my dad is an electrician.
When I was in junior high school the teachers voted me the student most likely to end up in the electric chair.
Put paying your dues and all that puts so much into being a success. You have an understanding of what it's about being on your own for three or four years and living day to day on $3 or living in an apartment with no electricity.
Some people train for certain sports and I want to train to be able to hold a super heavy electric guitar and carry luggage around myself because I always have to have 7 000 pairs of shoes. Who cares about sports?
Of all the failed technologies that litter the onward march of science - steam carriages zeppelins armoured trains - none has been so catastrophic to prosperity as the last century's attempt to generate electricity from nuclear fission.
Technology is such a broad kind of term it really applies to so many things from the electric light to running cars on oil. All of these different things can be called technology. I have kind of a love-hate relationship with it as I expect most people do. With the computer I spend so many hours sitting in front of a computer.
Bloomberg's $50 million is not going to revolutionize the electric power industry. But his willingness to fight is already inspiring others to see Big Coal differently.
Here at this site Solyndra expects to make enough solar panels each year to generate 500 megawatts of electricity. And over the lifetime of this expanded facility that could be like replacing as many as eight coal-fired power plants.
Measurements of the specific ionization of both the positive and negative particles by counting the number of droplets per unit length along the tracks showed the great majority of both the positive and negative particles to possess unit electric charge.
By allowing the positive ions to pass through an electric field and thus giving them a certain velocity it is possible to distinguish them from the neutral stationary atoms.
Electricity is of two kinds positive and negative. The difference is I presume that one comes a little more expensive but is more durable the other is a cheaper thing but the moths get into it.
An external electric field meeting it and passing through it affects the negative as much as the positive quanta of the atom and pushes the former to one side and the latter in the other direction.
There is an electric fire in human nature tending to purify - so that among these human creatures there is continually some birth of new heroism. The pity is that we must wonder at it as we should at finding a pearl in rubbish.
Music itself is going to become like running water or electricity. So it's like just take advantage of these last few years because none of this is ever going to happen again. You'd better be prepared for doing a lot of touring because that's really the only unique situation that's going to be left.
There's an electrical thing about movies.
For industry to settle in a country you first need electricity for electricity you need some trained workers for trained workers you need some schools for schools you need some money for money you need some industry.
Ben Franklin may have discovered electricity- but it is the man who invented the meter who made the money.
