Paula Mints is the Founder and Chief Market Research Analyst of the global solar market research firm SPV Market Research. Ms. Mints began her solar market research career in 1997 with Strategies Unlimited. In 2005 she left Strategies Unlimited for Navigant where she continued her practice until October 2012, when she founded SPV Market Research. Ms. Mints provides classic solar market research products based on primary research and focused on the supply and demand sides of the solar industry and its technologies. Recently she has begun conducting end user research to discover what PV system residential buyer/lessee/PPA customers really think about the selling/installing process. She publishes often with Renewable Energy World and Renewable Energy Focus. Her chapter, Overview of Photovoltaic Production, Markets and Perspectives, was published in the Fraunhofer/Elsevier book Advances in Photovoltaics Volume 1, edited by Dr. Gerhard Willeke and Dr. Eicke Weber. Ms. Mints also speaks at several high profile conferences a year, including the IEEE PVSC, the EU PVSEC, Intersolar Europe and US as well as others. All of
Ms. Mints is on the Intersolar Europe and Intersolar US conference committees as well as the Renewable Energy World Conference committee and the SPI (Solar Power International) conference committees. She also serves on the expert committee of the EU PV Platform. She earned her MBA at San Jose State University in 1999.
This week we speak with Paul Voss about his article for IEEE Spectrum on Sensible Small Drone Regulation. We also talk to Terry and Belinda Kilby about their book Drone Art Baltimore. Lots to talk about with the Amazon First Air and a pletora. Lots to discuss with the Amazon PrimeAir and a plethora of news interviews to review.

Gunther has years of experience in design and development of innovative solutions to a wide array of power system problems, most notably ways to take advantage of communications networks and technology to improve the efficiency, operating practices, and security of the electric power system.
Erich was appointed by the US Department of Energy in 2004 to serve on the GridWise Architecture Council (GWAC) - a focused team of experts assembled to articulate the guiding principles that constitute the architecture of a future, intelligent, transactive, energy system. Mr. Gunther serves on the board of directors for Global Smart Infrastructures, and the Utility Communications Architecture International Users group. He is a registered professional engineer in the state of Tennessee.
In 2007, EnerNex and Mr. Gunther were recognized by the Department of Energy and other organizers of the GridWeek conference by receiving the Smart Grid Implementation and Leadership Award. The award announcement stated: “Under Erich Gunther’s leadership, the EnerNex team has clearly driven how we implement and deploy smart grid technologies from coast to coast and everywhere in between”. Erich also received the individual Smart Grid Award for Technology Leadership at GridWeek 2008.
Guest: Steve Mills, President, IEEE Standards Association
Hosts: Karen Bartleson, Sr. Director, Community Marketing, Synopsys Inc. and Yvette Huygen, Director, Worldwide Public Relations and Corporate Communications, Synopsys, Inc.
Whether or not we’re aware of it, the IEEE Standards Association is responsible for standards that affect our everyday lives. As the Standards Association says, these standards determine the functionality, capabilities and interoperability of a wide range of products and services that transform the way we live, work and communicate. Steve Mills, the President of the IEEE Standards Association, will share with us some of the headaches, heartaches, and triumphs that have been part of the Association’s rich history. Plus, he’ll give us insights into his vision for the Association’s future.
To listen or participate, call 1 (877) 439-2972 within the US [international callers dial +1 (646) 200-4379] when the show begins at 11:00 am Pacific, 18:00 GMT. To ask a question, simply press 1 on your phone and we’ll put you on the air!
Join Scott Cluthe & P I on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/jscmedia Scott Cluthe talks with Russell Targ Tues Live on his newest book, The Reality of ESP. Call in for Russell at 347-308-8478. Russell Targ is a physicist and author, a pioneer in the development of the laser and laser applications, and a cofounder of the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) investigation of psychic abilities in the 1970s and 1980s. SRI is a research and development think tank in Menlo Park, California. Called remote viewing, his work in the psychic area has been published in Nature, The Proceedings of the Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers (IEEE), and the Proceedings of the American Association the Advancement of Science (AAAS).Targ has a bachelor's degree in physics from Queens College and did graduate work in physics at Columbia University. He has received two National Aeronautics and Space- Administration awards for inventions and contributions to lasers and laser communications. In 1983 and 1984 he accepted invitations to present remote-viewing demonstrations and to address the USSR Academy of Science on this research.He is author or co-author of nine books dealing with the scientific investigation of psychic abilities and Buddhist approaches to the transformation of consciousness, including Mind Reach: Scientists Look at Psychic Ability (with E. Harold Puthoff, 1977, 2005); Miracles of Mind: Exploring Nonlocal Consciousness and Spiritual Healing (with Jane Katra, 1998); and Limitless Mind: A Guide to Remote Viewing and Transformation of Consciousness (2004). He also wrote an autobiography, Do You See What I See: Memoirs of a Blind Biker, in 2008. His current book is The Reality of ESP: A Physicist's Proof of Psychic Abilities.As a senior staff scientist at Lockheed Missiles and Space Company, Targ developed airborne laser systems for the detection of windshear and air turbulence.
LETTERS ABOUT ZEE CHARNOE
I enjoy sharing the letters of commendation about Zee Charnoe, to Zee Charnoe and to other professionals, concerning his academic work, for his state-of-the-art design, environmental research and development, etc., from various eras of his life.
I will complete the program, if there is any time left, with another sampling of Tibetan ringing bowls.

Black Hat Hackers, that's who!Dr. Cochran talks with IEEE & ACM guru, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Energy Consultant and Professor of Computer and Electrical Engineering at the University of Illinois, Dr. David Nicol about this 'electrifying' topic!
Engineers enter the work world with excellent technical skills, but have little preparation for the realities of dealing with people and process in the real world. Key to being more effective and happier professionals is learning and then applying essential nontechnical skills, including speaking, writing and listening, decision-making, and setting priorities and managing time. During this show, Carl Selinger will discuss ways engineers can learn the soft skills that they will need to be successful in their careers.
Listen Live: (619) 768-7206 Questions welcome.
Carl Selinger is a civil engineer with forty years' experience in aviation and transportation, teaching at Cooper Union and other schools, and giving professional development seminars on nontechnical soft skills for engineers and technology professionals.
His book, Stuff You Don't Learn in EngineeringSchool: Skills for Success in the Real World (Wiley-IEEE Press, 2005), has been published in Chinaby Science Press. He is a Contributing Editor for IEEE Spectrum magazine.
