1872 Mining Law
- The U.S. House passed a revision of the 1872 mining law last week, which has not been revised since it was passed in 1872. The revision will require mining and oil companies to pay royalties for minerals and oil they take from the land. We'll have a discussion of the bill being considered in Congress. (still working on guests, although one will be Alan Stephens of the group Western Progress)
- An Arizona State University researcher is working in conjunction with researchers in Germany on a new memory device that uses nano wires and a new method of storage to greatly expand flash memory and reduce the heat it produces. ASU Engineering Professor Dr. Michael Kozicki will talk about his revolutionary new memory devices.
Touch the Names
