On January 14, during tests of the 110-megawatt Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project near Tonopah, Nevada, biologists observed 130 birds entering an area of concentrated solar energy and catching fire.
The test started at 9:00 a.m. on January 14. By 10:30, biologists working on the site began noticing what have become known as "streamers," trails of smoke and water vapor caused by birds entering the field of concentrated solar energy (a.k.a. "solar flux") and igniting.
[...] at least one of the birds injured was a common raven, which -- in the words of our source -- "turned white hot and vaporized completely." Asked to confirm that report, the BLM's Evenson said that his office didn't have a list of the species affected, but added that "that's what streamers are."

According to Gonzalez, Schneider threatened to spend a lot of money against her in her next election, so Gonzalez called him back.
"He just has faulty information," said Gonzalez. "I told him I'd be more than happy to look at any study that's a peer-review study, that's scientific, to suggest the things that he was talking about. The problem is they don't exist."
The assemblywoman then posted on her Facebook page, "That is 20 minutes of my life I'll never get back arguing that vaccines don't cause autism with Deuce Bigalow, male gigolo."
Rob Schneider is best known, of course, for his role as the guy from whom I bought DNA Lounge.
