Why slowness in recognizing important change in radical Islam?
In December of 2007, the "author" of jihad, Sayed (or Sayyed) Imam Al-sharif, ie. Dr. Fadl, refuted the extremism and abuse Al-Quida and other Muslim-based terrorist groups leaders have 'misled' their follows too believe and execute. Too much of it based on earlier writings of his, as Dr. Fadl is considered one of al Qaeda's senior theologians.
This has been attempted to be quieted by terrorist leaders, yet it is becoming more evident that Dr. Fadl's book (written while in Egyptian prison) and other common sense, faithful Islamic ideas are creating change at "street" level, affecting recruitment and arresting support of terrorist activities.
Governments of the world are looking at this cautiously, yet what harm would there be with optimistic caution, or even encouragement of such possibilities. It's believable that Muslims want this, as they have indicated they have not been well represented, as a majority, by the radical extremists.

A new study estimated the untapped potential of wind energy across Europe.
- A new report calculated how much electricity Europe could generate if it built onshore wind farms on all of its exploitable land.
- The results indicated that European onshore wind farms could supply the whole world with electricity from now until 2050.
- Wind farms come with a few complications, but the researchers noted that their study was meant to highlight the untapped potential of the renewable energy source in Europe.
Scientists make an important discovery for the future of computing.
- Researchers find a new state of matter called "topological superconductivity".
- The state can lead to important advancements in quantum computing.
- Utilizing special particles that emerge during this state can lead to error-free data storage and blazing calculation speed.
