The sensors could Telegraph structural problems or trigger repair alerts. Speaking to business leaders and others at nasal Sames research Center Carter acknowledged the challenges of improving ties with a tech Industry that is often wary distrustful and frustrated with the government. Because the two sides have different missions and different perspectives a sometimes we disagree. And i think that a Okay a he said. A addressing disagreements through partnership is better than not speaking at he told the Silicon Valley leaders that he is a there to under the new plan the Pentagon will provide $75 million and the Industry Academia and local government will contribute $96 million Over five years to a newly created High tech innovation Institute. The consortium called the flexible hybrid electronic Institute will be led by California based flex tech Alliance and be made up of 162 companies universities and other groups. Carter Laid out the details in his speech Friday in californians Silicon Valley. This is Carters second trip to the technology Hub in four months As he works to get a a a the High tech investment could Lead to wearable health monitors that could be built into military uniforms or used to assist the elderly. The defense department to increasingly tap into the regions High tech expertise and workforce. A Given what we be already done there a truly a limit to what we can achieve together a said Carter. A a that a Why in be been pushing the Pentagon to think outside our five sided Box and invest in innovation Here in Silicon Valley and in tech communities across the he said the flexible electronics have enormous potential for the military even though a we done to know All the applications this new technology will make possible a that a the remarkable thing about but he pointed to the potential to give wounded warriors smart prosthetics that could have the full flexibility of human skin or commercial applications that could improve diagnostic x rays to make breast cancer tests More accurate and less painful during his first trip to Silicon Valley in april Carter launched a new program called defense innovation unit experimental aimed at scouting out promising emerging technologies and beefing up the Pentagon a ability to work with High tech firms.

And officials Are making a strategic bet that the innovations new Epa water rules take effect in some states Washington apr new Federal rules to protect smaller streams tributaries and wetlands took effect on Friday a but Only in some states. A Federal court ruling thursday hours before the rules were to go into effect blocked the regulations in 13 states. Those states had sued the environmental Protection Agency and the . Army corps of f2ngineers, arguing that the rules Are Federal overreach and could he costly and confusing for landowners. The government says the new rules will help protect the nations Waters from pollution and development and safeguard drinking water for 117 million americans. Things to know about the new rules and court action blocking them a a a Epa says rules Are needed the regulations issued by the environmental Protection Agency and the . Army corps of engineers in May to clarify which smaller Waterways fall under fed eral Protection after two supreme court rulings left the reach of the clean water act Uncertain. Those decisions in 2001 and 2006 left 60 percent of the nations streams and millions of acres of wetlands without Clear Federal Protection according to Epa causing confusion for landowners and government officials. The new rules would Force a permitting process Only if a business or landowner took Steps that would pollute or destroy the affected Waters a those with a a direct and significant connection to larger bodies of water downstream that Are already protected. For example that could include tributaries that show evidence of flowing water. A a a a states Farmers say they Arentt despite the Epan Assur ances. Opponents fear a steady uptick in Federal regulation of every Stream and ditch on Rural lands. More than half of states have sued the Epa in Hopes of delaying or blocking the Rule. State officials from Georgia to new Mexico to Wisconsin have suggested the regulations could be harmful to Farmers and landowners who might have to pay for extra permits or redesign their property to manage Small bodies of water on their private land. The Federal ruling thursday was in North Dakota where officials from that state and 12 others argued the new guidelines Are Overly Broad and infringe on their sovereignty. . District judge Ralph Erickson in Fargo agreed that they might have a Case issuing a temporary injunction.

Government lawyers said during a hearing in Fargo last week that North Dakota a objection wrongly assumes some bodies of water will be affected they also argued that the state is already going through some of the permitting procedures they re complaining about. Since the rules were originally proposed last year the Epa has been working to Clear up some misconceptions like some critics assertions that average backyard puddles would be regulated that Spring from the projects would also have commercial uses. The official was not authorized to discuss the Issue prior to Public release so spoke on condition of anonymity.
