On my tour of Viva Vienna, which by the way was a crazy carnival atmosphere this year (more to come), I came across the Democratic headquarters tent. Who was out in front of the tent? None other than former Governor, now senator Tim Kaine. Kaine was doing more than just shaking hands, he was...

Specific Energy

A preview story of our next publication (May 28th) In our previous discussion we looked at the theory behind traffic flow patterns in a network and piped water systems.
