There is potential for great investing on EmpireAve. A lot of the fees are waved during this time.

Empire Avenue Tips

In addition to making the More Pie #11 upgrade available, Empire Avenue is also waiving all mission fees through November 26. This includes both the reward fee (an amount usually equal to the reward) and the requirement fee (an extra 10% charged when you target missions to shareholders or a particular community.)

So, missions cost half (or less) than usual to run for the next 3 days.

Hartmut Michel won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work on photosynthesis.  So, it is fair to say that he knows a thing or two about energy transport and storage in plants.  Today he is director of the Molecular Membrane Biology at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysics.

He recently penned an editorial in Angewandte Chemie International Edition in which he hammered the use of biofuels for alternative energy.  Note that Angewandte Chemie International Edition has the world’s highest impact factor of all chemistry journals.  His simple but pointed criticism condemns all varieties of biofuels and supports my previous posts on this subject.1, 2

The problem is the inherent inefficiency of photosynthesis.  He points out…

“The photosynthetic pigments of plants can only absorb and use 47%(related to energy) of the light of the sun (“photosynthetic active radiation”). Green light, UV…
