Google is offering a million dollars if you can create a power inverter that is smaller than a laptop. If you don’t know what an inverter is, the competition probably isn’t up your alley, but basically it means that Google is hoping to change the future of electricity. Current power inverters – the boxes that change direct current into alternating current in homes, businesses and cars – are the size of a picnic cooler, limiting what they can be used for, so a smaller, lighter inverter could change power as we know it (and make one lucky person a million dollars richer).
The National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial in Kansas City is hosting a public meeting with members of the United States World War One Centennial Commission.
The museum says in a release that the events Sunday at the museum south of downtown Kansas City are open to the public and will also include a panel discussion with World War I experts about the impacts of the war, which started 100 years ago this summer.
The panel discussion and lecture will also be streamed live online.

Germany's two largest airlines say they are not yet resuming flights to Israel even though the European Aviation Safety Agency has lifted a recommendation that airlines refrain from flying to Tel Aviv airport.
Air Berlin says flights to Tel Aviv remain suspended at least through midday Friday, while Lufthansa says all Friday flights to the airport have been canceled because of ongoing security concerns after a Hamas missile landed near it this week.
Lufthansa says it "acknowledges the considerable efforts made by Israel to provide the best possible protection for Ben Gurion Airport" with its missile defense system.
