11/28/15 - Power the World's Homes—With Bikes
KeelyNet Manoj Bhargava has built a stationary bike to power the millions of homes worldwide that have little or zero electricity. Early next year in India, he plans to distribute 10,000 of his Free Electric battery-equipped bikes, which he says will keep lights and basic appliances going for an entire day with one hour of pedaling. Pedal for an hour and you have electricity for 24 hours.

Bhargava, who dropped out of Princeton University after a year because he was bored and then lived in ashrams in his native India for 12 years, doesn’t stop at bikes. He’s working on ways to make saltwater drinkable, enhance circulation in the body, and secure limitless amounts of clean geothermal energy—via a graphene cord.

“If you have wealth, it’s a duty to help those who don’t,” says Michigan resident Bhargava, 62, in a documentary released Monday, Billions in Change, about his Stage 2 Innovations lab. “Make a difference in people’s lives,” he says, “Don’t just talk about it.”

“It’s so simple that we think we can make it for $100 … A bicycle repairman anywhere can fix it,” Bhargava says in an interview. Pedaling turns a turbine generator that creates electricity, stored in a battery. The first 50 bikes will be tested in 15 or 20 small villages in the northern state of Uttarakhand before a major rollout in the first quarter of next year. He says they’ll be made in India but doesn’t give details.

Bhargava gets most animated when talking about his graphene cable, but he sees the most immediate potential in Free Electric. He says it could provide electricity for the developing world and offer post-storm backup power in wealthier countries.

“This is going to affect a few billion people,” he says, noting the main challenge will be distribution—a subject he knows well. He won’t give the bike away, because he says people won’t take care of something that’s free. Rather, he’d prefer to incentivize distributors with profits. He says a village can also pool its resources, buying one bike but multiple batteries that can be swapped out to power individual homes.

Those working in rural India welcome the idea. “The problem of universal energy access is so big and diverse that we need multiple innovations to solve it...Free Electric appears to be one such product innovation,” says Piyush Mathur, chief financial officer of Simpa Networks, a company that offers pay-as-you-go financing for its solar lighting. - Power the World's Homes—With Bikes

11/28/15 - Why one political scientist thinks Donald Trump might actually win
KeelyNet In an exchange with Paul Krugman, political scientist Alan Abramowitz made one of the best cases I've heard for, as Krugman put it, "thinking the Trumpthinkable."

At some point, Abramowitz argued, pundits need to admit that Trump has a good chance of winning the Republican presidential nomination.

But that remains a minority viewpoint. Nate Silver, for instance, published a piece arguing that analysts extrapolating forward from Trump's current (and impressively durable) poll lead are likely to be disappointed. So I called Abramowitz and asked him to walk me through his argument in more detail.

Ezra Klein - Right now, the betting markets have Donald Trump at about 20 percent to be the Republican nominee. Do you think that's too high or too low?

Alan Abramowitz - I think it might be a little too low. I certainly don't think he's a strong favorite, but there's no way of really coming up with an accurate prediction of these things. Forecasting nomination contests is a fool's game, I think. I saw what Nate Silver posted on FiveThirtyEight, and what he's saying is reasonable based on the history of these presidential nominations, but there are a couple things I think are different this year.

Silver makes the case that the polls at this point don't necessarily mean much, and you can get big swings in voter preferences in relatively short periods of time. And that's true. What I think is different is Republicans are tuned in to a much greater degree than they were at this point in previous nomination contests. You can see that in polling when you ask whether voters are paying attention, and you can see that in ratings for the debates. The idea that voters aren't tuned in yet and won't make up their minds till January or later may not prove as true as it has in the past.

Because of the higher level of interest and attention this year, these early polls may be more predictive of what's likely to happen.

The second point is Trump isn't only leading in national polling. He's leading in every state poll I've seen. He seems to be ahead in Iowa, in New Hampshire, in South Carolina, Nevada. Voters say he's a strong leader who will shake up Washington, and that's what they want. He's the leader on big issues like immigration, terrorism, the economy. And the Washington Post/ABC News poll found a plurality — even more voters than actually support him — think he's the candidate with the best chance of winning in November.

11/28/15 - Plasma: A clean energy game changer?
KeelyNet Advanced Plasma Power (APP) has developed a process called Gasplasma, which combines gasification and plasma treatment to convert waste into two products: a hydrogen-rich synthesis gas and an inert product it calls Plasmarok. The firm says it has applications as a high value construction material.

What though, is plasma? "It's often referred to as the fourth state of matter," Stein said. "So if you heat a solid you get a liquid, if you heat a liquid you get a gas, if you heat a gas you get a plasma." Stein went on to describe plasma as an, "ionized, electrically conductive gas."

According to the company, the process involves several steps. After waste has been processed to recover any materials that can be recycled, the remainder is turned into what APP calls a refuse derived fuel, or RDF. A gasifier heats the RDF up and turns it into a "crude syngas", which is moved to a Gasplasma plasma conversion unit.

APP says that "intense heat from the plasma arc" – which is greater than 8,000 degrees centigrade – as well as intense ultraviolet light of the plasma results "in the complete cracking of tar substances and the breakdown of char materials." The by-products of this cracking are a clean syngas and Plasmarok.

"Household waste, stuff that we throw away, commercial industrial waste, even nastier stuff – hazardous waste – can all be basically transformed," Rolf Stein, CEO of Advanced Plasma Power, told CNBC in a phone interview.

To give a few examples, wastes such as creosote, oils and sludge can be used in the process to produce energy. According to the company, the process – which it says is modular and scalable – results in "minimal" emissions. Stein added that one avenue that the company was pursuing was the conversion of the synthesis gas into advanced biofuels such as compressed bio methane.

"We've just won a grant from the U.K. government to demonstrate, at a commercial scale, the production of compressed bio methane to use as a vehicle fuel," he said. - Plasma: A clean energy game changer?

11/28/15 - Religious Children Are Less Moral Than Non-Religious Kids
KeelyNet As someone who grew up as the only atheist kid in a sea of mostly Protestantism, the accusation that without religion, I lack a moral compass has always struck me as odd, especially since I’ve always cared about doing the right thing.

Now, science has confirmed what I (and presumably all non-religious kids) have known all along: it’s actually the religious kids who are the jerks.

The study was published in the journal Current Biology and it said that among other things, non-religious people are much more altruistic than religious people. I guess you don’t need to believe in God to love thy neighbor.

Over 1,100 children, aged 5 to 12, from the United States, China, Canada, Jordan, Turkey, and South Africa were chosen to participate in the study. Most of the children came from Christian, Muslim, or non-religious households. To test whether children raised on religion would behave more morally than non-religious children, they were asked to play what’s called a “dictator game.” In this game, children were shown 30 stickers and told that they could pick their favorite 10 to keep for themselves. The children were then each told that the experimenter didn’t have enough time to play this game with everyone, so some of the children at their school wouldn’t get any stickers. What the results showed was that children from Christian and Muslim households were both significantly less generous than children from non-religious households when it came to sharing their stickers with anonymous peers.

The findings not only show that religious kids aren’t more altruistic than non-religious kids; it suggests that not being religious may actually increase moral behavior. To most this would seem counterintuitive. The authors of the study have an explanation that involves an interesting phenomenon called moral licensing. The term refers to a sort of mental glitch—whereby doing something that enhances one’s positive self-image makes them less worried about the consequences of immoral behavior. For instance, research has shown that men who report being very opposed to sexism later go on to hire men for what would traditionally be considered a man’s job. They do this because they feel that since they are not sexist—at least, in their own minds—a decision to choose a male over a female can’t be immoral.

Similarly, someone that sees him or herself as being a moral person for devoutly practicing a religion might be less concerned about their actual behavior. In light of this, it is not so surprising that children who identified as religious did not feel as compelled to share stickers, since they believed themselves to be a good person independent of their behavior. On the other hand, an atheist child might be more concerned about the morality of their acts, since it is their behavior that tells them they are a good person, and not the following of rituals or prayer. - Source: The Daily Beast

The study also showed that religious kids were more violent and punitive than non-religious kids, who are more tolerant of people’s mistakes and differences. No surprise there.

The conclusion is something that we non-religious children (and adults) have known all along: when people choose morality it tends to be much more genuine than when someone believes they’re moral because they believe in a patriarchal bearded sky-daddy in the clouds. In other words, non-religious people know they have to prove themselves to be good people while religious people feel no need to prove anything to anyone, even themselves.

11/28/15 - Tech company reveal way to bring you back after death
A technology company says it's working on a project which would allow a human's consciousness to be transferred to an artificial body after their death.

In what sounds like a plot from a science fiction blockbuster, tech company Humai are working on human resurrection through artificial intelligence. They're hopeful that the technology - bionics, nanotechnology and artificial intelligence - will be ready in just three decades.

Creating an imprint of people to remain after they go , Humai is using artificial intelligence and nanotechnology to store data of conversational styles, behavioral patterns, thought processes and information about how bodies function. This data will be coded into multiple sensor technologies, which will be built into an artificial body with the brain of a deceased human.

The science as they explain it means using cloning technology, they will be able to restore the brain as it matures. Their website explains: "Humai is an AI company with a mission to reinvent the afterlife. We want to bring you back to life after you die."

Humai, based in Los Angeles, is funded entirely by CEO and founder Josh Bocanegra. Bocanegra told Australian Popular Science that the brain of the deceased will be frozen using cryonics technology so that when the technology is fully developed they can implant the brain into an artificial body.

"The artificial body functions will be controlled with your thoughts by measuring brain waves. "As the brain ages we'll use nanotechnology to repair and improve cells," he adds, saying that cloning technology is going to help, and: "We believe we can resurrect the first human within 30 years." - Tech company reveal way to bring you back after death

11/28/15 - The Real Effects That ‘Earthing’ Can Have On Your Body
KeelyNet Grounding, or ‘earthing,’ as some people call it, involves placing your feet directly on the ground without shoes or socks as a barrier. The logic behind this practice relates to the intense negative charge carried by the Earth. This charge is electron-rich, theoretically serving as a good supply of antioxidants and free-radical destroying electrons.

Putting your feet on the ground enables you to absorb large amounts of negative electrons through the soles of your feet which, in turn, can help to maintain your body at the same negatively charged electrical potential as the Earth.

Simple contact with the Earth, through being either outside barefoot or indoors connected to grounded conductive systems, could serve as a natural and “profoundly effective environmental strategy” against chronic stress, ANS dysfunction, inflammation, pain, poor sleep, disturbed HRV, hyper-coagulable blood, and many common health disorders, including cardiovascular disease.

Blood urea concentrations are lower in subjects who are earthed (connected to the earth potential with the use of copper wire) during physical exercise and that earthing during exercise resulted in improved exercise recovery.

These results suggest that earthing during exercise inhibits hepatic protein catabolism or increases renal urea excretion. Earthing during exercise affects protein metabolism, resulting in a positive nitrogen balance. This phenomenon has fundamental importance in understanding human metabolic processes and may have implications in training programs for athletes. - The Real Effects That ‘Earthing’ Can Have On Your Body

11/28/15 - Humanity May Be Colonizing Space Sooner Than We Imagine

Deep Space Industries (DSI) describes themselves as: “An international asteroid mining company, with primary offices in Silicon Valley, California and Luxembourg City, EU.

Built on a philosophy of international cooperation, Deep Space Industries has assembled a world-leading team with unparalleled experience in asteroid geology, mining, spacecraft design, astrodynamics, and entrepreneurship.

Deep Space Industries’ vision is one of unlimited resources, both in space and here on Earth. The solar system has provided all the resources we could ever need, right here in our neighborhood. DSI will harvest, process and manufacture these resources, creating a reliable supply chain of products, fuel and building supplies in space.

Human expansion into the solar system has been severely limited by the expense and energy requirements of launching materials from Earth. The availability of supplies and resources in space will fundamentally change the economics of space exploration and settlement. Near Earth Asteroids (NEAs) contain a wealth of useful materials such as water, metals and silicates. To date, scientists and astronomers have discovered over 13,000 Near Earth Asteroids (NEAs).

Many of these NEAs are energetically easier to reach than the Moon and are close enough to Earth that round-trip missions can be completed in as little as six months.” Tumlinson’s talk began with the video at the bottom of the article, and segued into his vision of the future, where “humanity and life expand indefinitely into the solar system and the universe.” By mining asteroids, DSI believes these resources will allow human expansion into the solar system, and will also fundamentally change the economics of space exploration and settlement.

While the prospect of deep space exploration is absolutely fascinating, especially to someone that has always felt at home in the stars, I couldn’t help but wonder what this means for the future on Earth, and a future in space. It seems with progressive independent companies like Space-X, Bigelow Aerospace, etc., that our galaxy (and galaxies beyond) will soon become the new Wild Wild West, and as exciting as it may seem, it also begs the question, are we really ready? With the current state of humanity here on this planet, how can we truly pioneer a new beginning when we haven’t even begun to undo or learn from the mistakes we’ve made on our mother home?

I’m reminded of a book from my childhood called The Wump World, where the “Pollutiants” invade the world and turn beautiful green meadows into a concrete jungle — which they then abandon after they deplete all of that world’s resources. I can only hope that we do not follow that same narrative, or rather… this same narrative, as we contemplate life in the cosmos.

11/28/15 - App lets you see Wi-Fi pulsing around you
There's a new app that lets users visualise WiFi and radio signals — with stunning results. It's called Architecture of Radio, and has just launched for iOS. An Android version is due to launch in early 2016.

The brainchild of Dutch designer Richard Vijgen, the project first made headlines back in August. But at the time, it was only available to use at a single exhibition in Germany, and you couldn't download it yourself.

Happily, it's now on the Apple App Store, retailing for $3 (£1.99). Installing it sheds new light on the hidden grid of signals that underpins our devices: Radio towers, satellites, Wi-Fi routers all appear against a blue backdrop. According to Architecture of Radio's website, "the dataset [the project uses] includes almost 7 million cell towers, 19 million Wi-Fi routers and hundreds of satellites."

11/24/15 - Experimental Drug Targeting Alzheimer's Disease Shows Anti-Aging Effects
The Salk team expanded upon their previous development of a drug candidate, called J147, which takes a different tack by targeting Alzheimer's major risk factor–old age. In the new work, the team showed that the drug candidate worked well in a mouse model of aging not typically used in Alzheimer's research.

When these mice were treated with J147, they had better memory and cognition, healthier blood vessels in the brain and other improved physiological features.

"Initially, the impetus was to test this drug in a novel animal model that was more similar to 99 percent of Alzheimer's cases," says Antonio Currais, the lead author and a member of Professor David Schubert's Cellular Neurobiology Laboratory at Salk.

"We did not predict we'd see this sort of anti-aging effect, but J147 made old mice look like they were young, based upon a number of physiological parameters."

In this latest work, the researchers used a comprehensive set of assays to measure the expression of all genes in the brain, as well as over 500 small molecules involved with metabolism in the brains and blood of three groups of the rapidly aging mice. The three groups of rapidly aging mice included one set that was young, one set that was old and one set that was old but fed J147 as they aged.

The old mice that received J147 performed better on memory and other tests for cognition and also displayed more robust motor movements. The mice treated with J147 also had fewer pathological signs of Alzheimer’s in their brains. Importantly, because of the large amount of data collected on the three groups of mice, it was possible to demonstrate that many aspects of gene expression and metabolism in the old mice fed J147 were very similar to those of young animals. These included markers for increased energy metabolism, reduced brain inflammation and reduced levels of oxidized fatty acids in the brain.

Another notable effect was that J147 prevented the leakage of blood from the microvessels in the brains of old mice. “Damaged blood vessels are a common feature of aging in general, and in Alzheimer’s, it is frequently much worse,” says Currais.

Currais and Schubert note that while these studies represent a new and exciting approach to Alzheimer’s drug discovery and animal testing in the context of aging, the only way to demonstrate the clinical relevance of the work is to move J147 into human clinical trials for Alzheimer’s disease.

“If proven safe and effective for Alzheimer’s, the apparent anti-aging effect of J147 would be a welcome benefit,” adds Schubert. The team aims to begin human trials next year. - Experimental Drug Targeting Alzheimer's Disease Shows Anti-Aging Effects

11/24/15 - Louis Friedman Says Humans Will Never Venture Beyond Mars
Dr. Louis Friedman, one of the co-founders of the Planetary Society, is coming out with a new book, "Human Spaceflight: From Mars to the Stars," an excerpt of which was published in Scientific America.

Friedman revives and revises a version of the humans vs. robots controversy that has roiled through aerospace circles for decades. Unlike previous advocates of restricting space travel to robots, such as Robert Park and the late James Van Allen, Friedman admits that humans are going to Mars to settle. But there, human space travel will end. Only robots will ever venture further.

His thesis is based at once on an optimistic view of advances in robotic technology and a pessimistic one of advances in technology that will enable human spaceflight. Friedman certainly thinks that interstellar travel by humans is impossible, because the distances are so vast, but does not offer a concrete reason as to why.

“The point of playing with these unimaginable numbers is to illustrate that interstellar travel is a subject of science fiction, not ready for prime time—at least not for humans. Most of the serious technical work for traveling between the stars, some with brilliant engineering and sophisticated applications of physics, relies on schemes that are entirely fictitious—or at least not real in any practical sense.” - Louis Friedman Says Humans Will Never Venture Beyond Mars

11/24/15 - NASA Selects Universities To Develop Humanoid Robot Astronauts
NASA announced that it is sending copies of its R5 Valkyrie humanoid robot to two universities for software upgrades and other research and development. The effort is part of a continuing project to develop cybernetic astronauts that will assist human astronauts in exploring other worlds.

The idea is that robot astronauts would initially scout potentially hazardous environments, say on Mars, and then actively collaborate with their human counterparts in exploration. NASA is paying each university chosen $250,000 per year for two years to perform the R&D. The university researchers will have access to NASA expertise and facilities to perform the upgrades.

NASA’s work in developing robot astronauts has been long and ongoing. In 2010, the Johnson Space Center proposed an idea called Project M to land a humanoid robot on the lunar surface and have it explore for 1,000 days. The project never got past the conception stage, though the lunar lander part of it was incorporated into Project Morpheus.

The R5 Valkyrie itself has been a work in progress. Two years ago, the Valkyrie tied for dead last in a DARPA robotics competition. However, the R2 Robonaut has proven to be more successful on board the International Space Station, testing how a robot astronaut can perform mundane maintenance tasks, freeing up its human counterparts for conducting research.

The hope is that some version of R5 will be on the first crew to go to Mars or back to the moon. It will answer the ancient controversy of whether humans or robots are best capable of exploring space with one word: “both.” - NASA Selects Universities To Develop Humanoid Robot Astronauts

11/24/15 - Researchers Create Plant-Circuit Hybrid
KeelyNet Researchers have crafted flexible electronic circuits inside a rose. Eventually such circuitry may help farmers eavesdrop on their crops and even control when they ripen. The advance may even allow people to harness energy from trees and shrubs not by cutting them down and using them for fuel, but by plugging directly into their photosynthesis machinery.

The researchers used "an organic electronic building block called PEDOT-S:H. Each of these building blocks consists of a short, repeating chain of a conductive organic molecule with short arms coming off each link of the chain.

Each of the arms sports a sulfur-containing group linked to a hydrogen atom. Berggren's group found that when they placed them in the water, the rose stems readily pulled the short polymer chains up the xylem channels (abstract). ... The upshot was that the myriad short polymer chains quickly linked themselves together into continuous strings as long as 10 centimeters.

The researchers then added electronic probes to opposite ends of these strings, and found that they were, in fact, wires, conducting electricity all down the line." - Researchers Create Plant-Circuit Hybrid

11/24/15 - Satellite Wars
Sixty years after the space race began, an orbital arms race is again in development. Military officials from the U.S., Europe and Asia confirm in private what the Kettering Group and other amateur stargazers have been watching publicly. Almost every country with strategically important satellite constellations and its own launch facilities is considering how to defend — and weaponize — their extraterrestrial assets.

"I don't think there is a single G7 nation that isn't now looking at space security as one of its highest military priorities and areas of strategic concern," says one senior European intelligence official.

The U.S. is spending billions improving its defenses — primarily by building more capacity into its constellations and improving its tracking abilities. A $900m contract was awarded to Lockheed Martin in 2014 to develop a radar system capable of tracking objects as small as baseballs in space in real time.

But there are also hints that the U.S. may be looking to equip its satellites with active defenses and countermeasures of their own, such as jamming devices and the ability to evade interceptions. A purely offensive anti-satellite program is in fast development as well.

High-energy weapons and maneuverable orbiters such as space planes all open the possibility of the U.S. being able to rapidly weaponize the domain beyond the atmosphere, should it feel the need to do so. - Satellite Wars

11/24/15 - 3-Year-Old Given 8% Chance to Live Overcomes Cancer with Cannabis
Landon Riddle of Colorado is only 3 years old, but he is the center of a hotly contested debate regarding medical marijuana. He was recently given only a few weeks to live after reacting very badly to chemotherapy, but once his mother began to administer medical marijuana, even the chemo became unnecessary. The problem is that Landon didn’t live in a state where medical marijuana is legal to administer.

Landon has acute lymphocytic leukemia, or ALL, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Or should we say – HAD. It all started with a sore throat and swollen lymph nodes in 2012, but quickly progressed to a full stage cancer. Within weeks, Landon was flown to a hospital in Salt Lake City because his symptoms were progressing very rapidly.

“His whole chest was full of leukemia tumors, which is why he couldn’t breathe,” his mother says. “They started him on chemo, but told us that he probably wasn’t going to make it.” Landon’s mother was told he had an 8% chance of survival.

Landon’s mother did what any would do to save her son – she moved to Colorado. She rented a room, got Landon’s medical marijuana card, and began giving him marijuana — THC for the pain and nausea, and CBD for its own healing properties. The dose was based on Landon’s weight. He first took it in oil form, but now takes a pill. She says that his red and white blood cell counts increased dramatically after only a few doses. Landon’s cancer is now in full remission. - 3-Year-Old Given 8% Chance to Live Overcomes Cancer with Cannabis

11/24/15 - 'El Chapo' Guzmán basically controls the entire US drug market

Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán's Sinaloa cartel is arguably the most powerful drug-trafficking organization in the Western Hemisphere — and in the world.

As of 2013, the DEA believed that the cartel supplied "80% of the heroin, cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine — with a street value of $3 billion — that floods the Chicago region each year."

And, as a DEA report released this summer makes clear, Guzmán's organization has only expanded and deepened its US operations in the last two years. Trumps wall will fix this. - JWD - El Chapo' Guzmán basically controls the entire US drug market

11/24/15 - Graphene 100 times cheaper than ever before
A large part of this expense is the substrate on which Graphene is generally produced. By using a process of chemical vapor deposition (CVD), graphene has often been grown as a monolayer (a layer one atom thick) by exposing platinum, nickel or titanium carbide to ethylene or benzene at high temperatures. Recent production methods have lowered these costs somewhat by incorporating copper as a substrate, but even this method can still prove expensive.

To help drastically reduce these costs, the researchers came up with the idea of depositing high-quality graphene on the surface of inexpensive copper foils often used to make the ultra-thin cathodes (negative electrodes) in lithium-ion batteries. As it turns out, the surface of the copper proved to be both completely smooth and a superior substrate on which to form the graphene.

"The commercially-available copper we used in our process retails for around one dollar per square meter, compared to around $115 for a similar amount of the copper currently used in graphene production," said Dr Dahiya, of the University of Glasgow's School of Engineering. "Our process produces high-quality graphene at low cost, taking us one step closer to creating affordable new electronic devices with a wide range of applications, from the smart cities of the future to mobile healthcare."

The team believes that large-scale, inexpensive synthesis of high quality graphene films through their method could realize graphene-based flexible optoelectronic systems, including such things as cell phones with roll-up displays, e-paper, radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags, medical patches to deliver drugs or monitor vital signs, and tactile or electronic skin for robotics and prosthetics. - Graphene 100 times cheaper than ever before

The jet pack was created by brothers Simon and Chris Parke of Portsmouth based SCP Marine Innovation and uses patented Hydra thrusters to propel you at superfast speeds (top speed in excess of 6mph).

All you have to do is point your arms in the direction you want to go and control your speed using the handy throttle grip attached to your wrist. Oh, and it comes in five different colours (to match your superhero costume, of course).

While the early bird jet packs are now, sadly, sold out, you could get your hands on one for $2,000 (£1,615) here. Or, if you want to try before you buy, you could splash out $150 (£97) for the x2 Sport experience. If crowdfunding proves successful (what do they mean ‘if’?), delivery is planned for September next year. Imagine this with antigravity? - JWD - x2 Sport is the world’s first wearable underwater jet pack

11/20/15 - Canada plans to store energy in giant underwater balloons
Canada’s Hydrostor has developed a creative energy storage solution that is half the cost of the best battery technology and lasts twice as long. The clean energy startup is storing energy as compressed air and then housing the air underwater inside giant balloons. Though it sounds ridiculous, the idea is efficient at energy storage, and an environmentally friendly, zero-emissions solution.

Cleantech startup Hydrostor designed and is now partnering with Toronto Hydro to operate the world’s’ first underwater compressed air energy storage system in Toronto. Located 3 kilometers off the shore of Toronto Island, a series of underwater balloons containing compressed air are submerged under 55 meters of water and connected to Hydrostor’s power facility via a pipe. The facility currently is being used to store excess energy from Toronto’s existing power grid during non-peak times It also can be adapted to store energy from renewable energy sources such as wind or solar power, providing the ability to store energy during peak energy generation times to compensate for the occasional downtimes.

Under development for five years, the Hydrostor solution takes existing technologies and repurposes them for its clean energy storage solution. To store electricity, the company converts excess electrical energy into compressed air, which is moved through a pipe to the company’s underwater storage facility. The air is then pumped into giant submerged balloons called accumulators that are made from the same material that’s used to raise sunken ships from a lake bed or an ocean floor.

The compressed air remains inside the underwater balloons until it is needed by Toronto during peak energy hours. To pump the stored power back into the grid, Hydrostor must first convert the compressed air back into electricity. The system takes advantage of the natural pressure of the lake water to push the air out of the balloons and send it back through the pipe to a turbine. The compressed air-powered turbine then is used to generate the extra energy required by the grid.

Compressed air has been considered a solution for energy storage in the past, but it has not been widely adopted because it needs a large area of open space for storage. By using a lake bed, Hydrostor has ample storage space and also can take advantage of the lake’s hydrostatic water pressure in the energy generation process. The company fired up its first pilot facility on November 18 and is capable of providing 660 kilowatts of power, which is enough power to meet the needs of roughly 33 homes. The technology is scalable and, unlike competing battery storage solutions, does not use any toxic substances. Hydrostor hopes to expand its operations globally and is already working with Aruba to build a system similar to the one operating in Toronto.

11/20/15 - Mexico Rules Consumption and Cultivation of Cannabis Is A Fundamental Human Right
KeelyNet The Mexican Supreme Court ruled by 4 to 1 that banning the consumption and cultivation of cannabis for personal use violates the human right to free development of one's personality. "This vote by Mexico's Supreme Court is extraordinary for two reasons," says Hannah Hetzer of the US Drug Policy Alliance, which campaigns for the relaxation of drug laws. "First, it's being argued on human-rights grounds, and secondly, it's taking place in one of the countries that has suffered most from the war on drugs," she says.

Cannabis reached the United States at the beginning of the 20th century, arriving in the southwest from Mexico, as immigrants fled the country during the Mexican Revolution of 1910-1911. The cultivation of cannabis, commonly known as marijuana, can be traced back at least 12,000 years, which places the plant among humanity's oldest cultivated crops. However, modern humans have found it acceptable to prohibit the use of one of the most therapeutic plants in the world based on mostly political reasons.

A federal law called the Marijuana Tax Act banned its use and sales in 1937. Prior to 1937 in the United States (and 1928 in the United Kingdom), cannabis had enjoyed a 5,000 year run as a therapeutic plant with no history of illegality.

Four US states -- Colorado, Washington, Alaska and Oregon -- have legalised the personal use of cannabis and Canada is expected to follow suit. More than a dozen U.S. states have now completely decriminalized the act of possessing marijuana. It's a far cry from initiatives in 2011 when the federal government decreed that marijuana had no accepted medical use use and should remain classified as a highly dangerous drug like heroin.

We now know that accepting and promoting the powerful health benefits of marijuana would instantly cut huge profits geared towards cancer treatment and the U.S. would have to admit it imprisons the population for no cause. Nearly half of all drug arrests in the United States are for marijuana.

Bills to legalise cannabis for medical use are under debate in Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Costa Rica. The world is moving towards its inhabitants finally being able to once again possess, sell, transport and cultivate the plant. Several other countries have moved towards more lenient laws on cannabis use, but none have done so solely on the basis of human rights. Most, like Ireland, which in early November moved towards legalising supervised heroin use and possible decriminalisation of other drugs, have cited health, compassionate and economic grounds.

"We're seeing a new rationality in relation to drug laws," says David Nutt of Imperial College London, who is a former UK government adviser on drugs."At last some countries have the courage to admit that the ‘war on drugs' is futile and does more harm than good." - Mexico Rules Consumption and Cultivation of Cannabis Is A Fundamental Human Right

11/20/15 - Cult of Islam wolves among us

Not only the Hindus, but also Cristianity suffers because of Islamic Terror..Every hindu/indian must watch. The 2nd video is totally mind blowing - The history of Islam in Europe and how it effects us to this day. This is a history based on numbers and facts that you may not see anywhere else and explains why we may be afraid to see Islam for what it is based on its own doctrine and practice.

Difference Between Cult and Religion - Cult - ‘“ a cult is a religious or social group with socially deviant or novel beliefs and practices. In an article on Al Qaida published in The Times, journalist Mary Ann Sieghart wrote that al-Qaida resembles a "classic cult", commenting: "Al-Qaida fits all the official definitions of a cult. It indoctrinates its members; it forms a closed, totalitarian society; it has a self-appointed, messianic and charismatic leader; and it believes that the ends justify the means."

Also Cult - ‘“ a secretive group that brainwashes its members into engaging in obscene and harmful practices for the sake of a charismatic leader. As you can see, the definition of cults has changed significantly over the past thirty to forty years. This is because some cult leaders, such as Jim Jones, sexually abused his followers. Other cults, such as Aum Shinrikyo, have committed high profile crimes, such as the sarin gas attack that took place in the Tokyo subway.

Religion - ‘“ a method of thought that is meant to give meaning to man’s life by putting him in communion with a higher power through stories, rituals, and beliefs.

548 battles, 19,000 jihad attacks - follows Islamic doctrine of jihad. 12 decades in 1400 years jihad free. Islam is 91% violence, 9% peace. jihad - Christians 60 million, Buddhists 10 million, Hindus 80 million, Africans 120 million, total 270 million dead by jihad as of 2012.

Doctrine drives history. Political Islam is the enemy of ALL Kafir (nonbeliever) civilizations. The word Islam means 'submit.' The abuser expects submission on the part of the victim, the Kafir (non believer). 1400 years of jihad, brutality, enslavement, theft, deception, rape, annihilation and insults, Kafir mind is identical to an abused victim.

11/20/15 - Captagon drug fueling Syria’s war and turning fighters into superhuman soldiers
A tiny, highly addictive pill produced in Syria and widely available across the Middle East, its illegal sale funnels hundreds of millions of dollars back into the war-torn country's black-market economy each year, likely giving militias access to new arms, fighters and the ability to keep the conflict boiling.

A powerful amphetamine tablet based on the original synthetic drug known as "fenethylline," Captagon quickly produces a euphoric intensity in users, allowing Syria's fighters to stay up for days, killing with a numb, reckless abandon.

"You can't sleep or even close your eyes, forget about it," said a Lebanese user, one of three who appeared on camera without their names for a BBC Arabic documentary that aired in September. "And whatever you take to stop it, nothing can stop it." "I felt like I own the world high," another user said. "Like I have power nobody has. A really nice feeling." "There was no fear anymore after I took Captagon," a third man added.

According to a Reuters report published in 2014, the war has turned Syria into a "major" amphetamines producer -- and consumer. "Syrian government forces and rebel groups each say the other uses Captagon to endure protracted engagements without sleep, while clinicians say ordinary Syrians are increasingly experimenting with the pills, which sell for between $5 and $20," Reuters reported.

Captagon has been around in the West since the 1960s, when it was given to people suffering from hyperactivity, narcolepsy and depression, according to the Reuters report. By the 1980s, according to Reuters, the drug's addictive power led most countries to ban its use. The United State classified fenethylline ("commonly known by the trademark name Captagon") as a Schedule I drug under the federal Controlled Substances Act in 1981, according to the National Criminal Justice Reference Service. Still, the drug didn't exactly disappear.

VOA notes that while Westerners have speculated that the drug is being used by Islamic State fighters, the biggest consumer has for years been Saudi Arabia. In 2010, a third of the world's supply — about seven tons — ended up in Saudi Arabia, according to Reuters. VOA estimated that as many as 40,000 to 50,000 Saudis go through drug treatment each year. - Captagon drug fueling Syria’s war and turning fighters into superhuman soldiers

11/20/15 - ISIS defector explains reason people continue joining
Despite ISIS's claims of ruling over a Islamic "caliphate" in line with Sharia law, a large number of the group's fighters joined for reasons having little to do with religion, according to a defector from the group that The Daily Beast's Michael Weiss interviewed in Istanbul, Turkey. Instead, people are joining the organization because they are desperate for money and are struggling to find a way to survive in Syria, where four years of civil war have decimated the economy.

The ISIS defector, who goes by the pseudonym Abu Khaled, spoke with Weiss about the group's internal dynamics, and what it was like to live under ISIS's rule. According to Abu Khaled, a large number of people are joining ISIS because they need money. After joining the militants, people are paid in US dollars instead of Syrian liras. Abu Khaled said that ISIS also runs its own currency exchanges.

ISIS members receive additional incentives to fight for the group. “I rented a house, which was paid for by ISIS,” Abu Khaled, who worked for ISIS's internal-security forces and "provided training for foreign operatives," told Weiss. “It cost $50 per month. They paid for the house, the electricity. Plus, I was married, so I got an additional $50 per month for my wife. If you have kids, you get $35 for each. If you have parents, they pay $50 for each parent. This is a welfare state.”

And those financial benefits are not just limited to the organization's fighters. According to Abu Khaled, any member of ISIS, ranging from construction workers to doctors, receives similar compensation. In war-torn Syria, these salaries are a powerful lure for people who might not otherwise be able to support their families — or for people just hoping to get rich.

“I knew a mason who worked construction. He used to get 1,000 lira per day. That’s nothing," Abu Khaled told Weiss. "Now he’s joined ISIS and gets 35,000 lira—$100 for himself, $50 for his wife, $35 for his kids. He makes $600 to $700 per month. He gave up masonry. He’s just a fighter now, but he joined for the income.” - ISIS defector explains reason people continue joining

11/20/15 - Make a “Flanagan Neurophone” - Like Device with a TL494

Patrick Flanagan invented the “Neurophone” over 40 years ago. His original patent (US3393279) was basically a radio transmitter that could be picked up by the human nervous system. It modulated a one-watt 40kHz transmitter with the audio signal, and used very near-field antennas to couple it to the body. It also used extremely high voltages.

Fortunately, we don’t need to work with radio transmitters or high voltages. Over a decade later, Flanagan came up with a version of the “Neurophone” that didn’t use radio, or high voltages. (Patent US3647970)

The second version of the “Neurophone” used ultrasound instead. By modulating an ultrasonic signal with the audio we want to listen to, it gets picked up by a little-known part of the brain and turned into something that feels like sound.

The weird thing is this works even if the ultrasound transducers are far away from the head: maybe down at your waist, or even further (depending on your body).

To make the ultrasound signal, we’ll use a widely-available TL494 pulse-width modulation controller. This isn’t a perfect solution, so you won’t hear the signal as well as with one of Flanagan’s designs. But it’s a lot simpler than messing around with DSP. And it gives you a chance to experience and experiment with the “Neurophone” effect. - Make a “Flanagan Neurophone” - Like Device with a TL494

11/20/15 - How a raisin can predict a toddler's future academic ability
A simple test using a raisin can predict how well a toddler will perform academically at age eight, according to research conducted at the University of Warwick. Using just the piece of dried fruit and a plastic cup they have devised a test based on how long a 20-month old child can wait to pick up a raisin in front of them.

The toddlers were given a raisin that was placed under an opaque cup within easy reach. After three training runs toddlers were asked to wait until they were told (60 seconds) they could touch and eat the raisin. During the study it was found that those who were born very prematurely were more likely to take the raisin before the allotted time.

In a follow on study the academics found that those who couldn't inhibit their behavior as toddlers weren't performing as well in school as their full-term peers seven years later.

Senior author, Professor Dieter Wolke, who is based at the University of Warwick's Department of Psychology and at Warwick Medical School, said: "An easy, five-minute raisin game task represents a promising new tool for follow-up assessments to predict attention regulation and learning in preterm and term born children. The results also point to potential innovative avenues to early intervention after preterm birth." - How a raisin can predict a toddler's future academic ability
