Dashed Mill Race Inn development plans leave future of Geneva site in question

For four years, the former Mill Race Inn site in Geneva has sat empty except for the remnants of a historic stone structure protected by a tarp.

It’ll stay that way — at least for now — after the city council rejected the latest development proposal for the prime parcel of land on the Fox River at Geneva’s eastern gateway.



At a meeting Monday, Geneva’s 10 aldermen voted unanimously to reject the proposal presented by the Shodeen Family Foundation, signaling the end of a $38 million project introduced nearly 18 months ago.

The proposed project called for 116 rental apartments, eight townhouses, 2,000 square feet of commercial space, 155 covered parking spaces, deconstruction and reinterpretation of the original historic structure to adhere to its landmark status, and riverfront amenities.

The decision will cost the city $273,000 — to come from tax increment financing funds — to cover all the expenses

Smart Algae. Underwater Drones. An Internet for Mars. How Hypergiant Is Inventing for the Future.

How do you dress for the Pentagon? Most people hoping to secure a contract to send satellites into space would put on a suit. But Ben Lamm is not a fan of the expected. So on a visit to Washington, D.C., the night before his big meeting with Air Force generals, he was at a restaurant deliberating two important style questions: Which jean jacket would he wear? And which swanky scarf?

Lamm in the skull scarf he wore to his first Pentagon meeting, which led to scoring a satellite project.

His dinner date that night knew the Pentagon well. It was Susan Penfield, a longtime executive VP at consulting giant Booz Allen Hamilton, which does a lot of work with the federal government (as well as with Lamm). “I don’t know if it will fly at the Pentagon,” she told him — but if he insisted

Building The Batteries Of The Future

This year we mark the 10-year milestone for the Forbes 30 Under 30 project, with a diverse mix of up-and-comers leading the way to our clean energy transition.

Among this year’s winners in the Energy category you’ll find very few focused on fossil fuels like coal or oil. It’s little surprise that our young innovators are more forward looking. This year’s cohort has made inroads in flexible batteries; wind-powered Bitcoin miners; pipeline inspections, near-magical bacteria, tree-planting drones, even new tricks in fracking. 

And they have some inspiration from 30 Under 30 classes of past years. We’ve been doing this long enough that many of our alums have gone on to tremendous success. This year Thomas Healy, of the 2017 list, even became America’s youngest self-made billionaire (for a few weeks anyway) when his company Hyliion, a maker of electric drive trains for long-haul trucks, went public via a special

Children at Market Drayton Junior School were invited to take part in a Room of the Future competition, organised by the homebuilder.

Situated close to David Wilson’s Drayton Meadows development, the pupils were asked to look to the future and design a room that they believed would be possible in years to come.

Georgina Hall, sales manager at David Wilson Homes Mercia, said: “The children at Market Drayton Junior School are the future generation of homebuilders, and it’s important for them to use their creativity to inspire new and innovative designs.

“The pupils’ entries were so amazing, that we couldn’t just pick one. After narrowing it down to seven drawings, we finally managed to choose a first, second, and third place.”

The winner was ten-year-old Lucy Dixon from year five, whose unicorn-adorned room included an endless

Are 3D Nerfies the Future of 2D Selfies?

Ever since cameras first existed people have been pointing the lens at themselves to snap so-called selfies—a term first coined back in 2002. At this point they’re long overdue for an upgrade, so a team of researchers have created what could be the next-generation of selfies: easy to capture 3D models of yourself dubbed nerfies that let others see what’s happening all around you.

Why do we take and share selfies? Is it vanity? A desperate need for the praise and approval of our peers? Whatever the reason, they represent a carefully controlled and curated glimpse of our lives, but why not share more? Researchers from the University of Washington and Google Research have come up with a way to create a more comprehensive snapshot of a given moment in time. Instead of just looking at a 2D image, nerfies allow the viewer to zoom and pan around the
