Jet Capsule – the future of boating?

The pod-like JetCapsule measures just 7.5m. Photo: Private JetCapsule
MINI-YACHT: Italian design company, Lazzarini Design, has created a “new concept for water mobility” – a miniature, pod-like yacht.
Measuring just 7.5m, the Jet Capsule is large enough to seat seven passengers and features a transformable bed solution to go along with its bathroom and optional kitchen compartment.
It is also built with photochromic windows and a 120 hp to 800 hp hydro jet propulsion system to give top speeds of between 20 to 50 knots, depending on the engine configuration chosen– the company says this is completely customisable.
The pod-like yacht is made from vacuum-infusion moulding and is 70% carbon, giving it a “highly advantageous weight/power ratio”.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A new Associated Press investigation, which found that ethanol hasn't lived up to some of the government's clean-energy promises, is drawing a fierce response from the ethanol industry.
In an unusual campaign, ethanol producers, corn growers and its lobbying and public relations firms have criticized and sought to alter the story, which was released to some outlets earlier and is being published online and in newspapers Tuesday.   http://bigstory.ap.org/article/industry-takes-aim-ap-ethanol-investigation-0?goback=%2Egde_2241870_member_5806657980652883968#%21
