President Biden got 51.3% of the votes compared to former President Trump’s 46.8%.1 Third-party candidates picked up 1.8%. With margins that slim, a few votes make a BIG difference. Early polling by New York Times2 and others continue to show Biden and Trump tied as the frontrunners, so we may be in for a rematch. For them and all the candidates, one way to

The legislation, which would take effect in May, would authorize up to five special tourism zones across West Virginia, involving projects worth at least $25 million in towns with 2,000 residents or fewer. Qualifying projects would be exempt from building, zoning and other local regulations and would instead be overseen by the state development office.

The bill was drafted in response to concerns about the stalled redevelopment of the Hilltop House Hotel, a 19th-century structure on a bluff ove

Experiment without penalty: Can regulatory 'sandboxes' foster utility innovation?

The fundamental business principles and very fabric of American utility infrastructure have remained basically unchanged for more than a century.

The regulatory compact set forth for public utilities was driven by economic principles. Public utilities, beginning with railroads then the distribution of electricity and gas, were (and are) considered to be natural monopolies because the economies of scale are so great that it is more efficient for one firm to provide the service than for competito

Genomic Research Requires Cloud Solutions that Support Fast Analysis of Exabytes of Data

Studying the structure of DNA not only reveals information about gene expression but is also helping researchers speed diagnoses and find cures for some of our most challenging and deadly medical conditions. However, to get to the point where you can create a new drug, a cure, or other lifesaving medical advance requires massive amounts of data and a way to quickly and efficiently turn that data into actionable insight.

While clinicians and researchers have little trouble generating the data th
