Electricity generation in the Anthropocene is likely to become decentralised and user owned. The large power stations that currently supply cities will continue to exist, but individuals and communities will increasingly generate their own energy through rooftop solar thermal panels or ground source heat pumps to heat water and buildings, and photovoltaic panels and wind turbines to provide electricity, for example. In the next decade, photovoltaic paint, blinds and glass that can generate electricity from sunlight will be used for public and private buildings.
In 1797 Venice finally lost its independence, when the city fell to Napoleon’s armies. Then after the French Emperor’s downfall, the expansive Austrian Empire assumed control of the city over the next few decades. In the 1850s Venice was once again free from foreign interference, but aspirations of reinstated independence were short lived.

Zambia’s native meals are based on nshima which is a prepared porridge made from ground maize. Nshima is about a similar consistency of mashed potato, but could be varied for different dinners, and is often eaten three times a day. It’s dished up with veggies and meat or even dried seafood.
Vulcan XH558, operated by the Vulcan to the Sky Trust, is only flying at all thanks to a decade long quest by a team of volunteers and RAF trained engineers. Returning one of these four engined bombers to the skies was one of the most complex aircraft preservation projects undertaken anywhere in the world. As the team prepares to watch the aircraft last flight later this month, BBC Future spoke to those involved and discovered an untold story of remarkable engineering, dogged effort, and exhilarating flight..
The problem is that Croatia is sending a lot more than that, several thousands a day, to the Slovenian border. Croatia’s absorbing them from Serbia, trying to move them on quickly. And last night, Slovenia literally closed the fence on thousands of people right here gathered on this border because it had already accepted 2,500 for the day.
