02/24/05 - Solar concentrator using methane gas
The Solar Thermal Project uses a parabolic dish to harness the heat of the Sun, causing methane to react and form a gas that can hold more energy than methane alone.
02/23/05 - Carnitine to reverse aging
Aging seems to slow the transport of fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane and the reverse excretion of shorter waste products. Free radicals are also a by-product of mitochondrial energy production and these tend to accumulate, to the detriment of the organelles. As Charles Rebouche, of the University of Iowa, writes in summarizing the literature: Acetyl-L-carnitine, as a dietary supplement, appears to slow or reverse the effects of aging in rats. Clinical studies in humans demonstrating positive effects of Acetyl-L-carnitine may slow or reverse mild cognitive impairment and the progression of dementia in Alzheimer's disease.
02/23/05 - Electrical filtering of viruses from the blood
Australian company Gradipore announced this week it has been able to purify blood proteins and remove viral contamination, including HIV, hepatitis B and C.
02/23/05 - One Shot Diabetes Cure
In the current issue of Nature Medicine, the University of Florida researchers explain how they harvested stem cells in the earliest stages of mice development and grew them into organs called Islets of Langerhans. These organs are part of the pancreas and contain beta cells which secrete insulin. After maturing, the tiny organs were injected under the skin of the same, diabetic, mice. Blood vessels grew towards them and after a few days the substitute islets were fully functional and able to regulate the glucose level in the body during the study period, which lasted three months.
02/23/05 - stopping heamorrhages with ultrasound
Sound waves can increase blood flow and activate platelets, assisting in the formation of clots, without the heating of tissue.
02/22/05 - secret of Honeys' curative powers is hydrogen peroxide
Ms Blair said hydrogen peroxide is produced when the enzyme glucose oxidase (produced by bees) reacts with water in the wound and glucose in the honey. "It's like bleach, she said. "If you put bleach on your skin it would burn you, but this is at such a low concentration it doesn't harm the skin."
02/22/05 - Fertilising the ocean and reducing CO2
By adding a few barrels of iron sulphate to a 7km wide patch of ocean, a massive bloom of phytoplankton grew and spread for more than 6 weeks. The growth of this bloom was followed by ship and by satellite until it became a ribbon more than 150 km long and 4km wide. This ribbon is thought to have contained up to 3000 tonnes of carbon produced from environmental CO2.
02/22/05 - Agriculture with half the water
The technique works by tricking the plant into a continual state of water retaining activity by slowly drying part of the grapevine's root system and keeping the remaining roots well watered. The vine thinks that most of its roots are drying out so produces chemical signals reducing shoot growth and leaf area and also closing the stomates. This means that less water is lost through transpiration. The wet roots, however, keep the plant healthy and productive. The grapevine will eventually adapt to the drier conditions and re-open its stomates, but by continually reversing the treatment and wetting the dry roots while drying those that had been wet, a constant state of low water loss can be maintained.
02/22/05 - Laser shoots Matter Waves
Remember TRON? The matter-wave laser uses a gas of rubidium atoms. The gas is captured in a magnetic trap then cooled to near absolute zero to reach the Bose-Einstein condensation. The gas atoms then lose their identity and behave as a single entity, a sort of super atom. The laser could spray an accurate coating of atoms onto surfaces - for example - to create nanostructure miniature computer circuits.
02/22/05 - Body clocks to maximize health and medicine dosage
The circadian rhythm also appears to have an effect on the way bodies respond to medication. In cancer chemotherapy, patients were able to tolerate 40% higher doses of drugs depending on the timing of the treatment. Efficacy of the treatment was also improved given the right timing. If there is a 'right timing' there is also the danger of a 'wrong timing'. For example, diabetics who are blind and do not have the normal light cues which reset their clocks may be taking their insulin at the wrong time.
02/22/05 - Fires chase away rain
"We've seen evidence of decreased precipitation in clouds contaminated by smoke, but it wasn't until now that we had direct evidence showing that smoke actually suppresses precipitation completely from certain clouds," said author, Daniel Rosenfeld, from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
02/22/05 - Sound pulse engine to improve engine efficiency
Sound waves are generated which produce a pulsing effect inside the engine. This causes any exhaust gases which have not been burnt up to recirculate through the system, virtually eliminating exhaust gases. These unburnt gases constantly re-ignite a series of flames which provide the heat for the system, like passing on a baton in a race.
02/19/05 - Canary on a chip measures tiny changes in cell volume
A novel technology that can test cells in minutes for responses to any stimulus, including antibiotics, pathogens, toxins, radiation or chemotherapy, has been developed by scientists at the University at Buffalo. "The new technique is so sensitive it can detect changes in cell dimensions never seen before in living cells," she said. "The necessary power can be supplied even by a watch battery and the sensor is so small it could fit into a pencil eraser."
02/19/05 - Bubbles reduce drag
Physicists in the lab have now confirmed under controlled conditions what shipbuilders have known for some time, that a shot of bubbles can help reduce the drag encountered by a ship moving through water.
02/19/05 - Deluge Thermal Hydraulic Engine
As the working fluid is heated with hotwater (190 deg. F) in the heat exchanger, it expands and pushes the pistion out of the cylinder. At the same time this piston is expanding, a common rod is compressing hydraulic fluid in an adjacent pistong and cylinder. As it compresses the hydraulic fluid it passes through a hydraulic motor which in turn rotates a shaft that operates a pump, electric generator or other device. Cold water placed in the heat exchanger causes the working fluid to contract, readying the piston for another stroke.
02/15/05 - Black box that sees into the future
Using the internet, he connected up 40 random event generators from all over the world to his laboratory computer in Princeton. These ran constantly, day in day out, generating millions of different pieces of data. Most of the time, the resulting graph on his computer looked more or less like a flat line. But then on September 6, 1997, something quite extraordinary happened: the graph shot upwards, recording a sudden and massive shift in the number sequence as his machines around the world started reporting huge deviations from the norm. The day was of historic importance for another reason, too. For it was the same day that an estimated one billion people around the world watched the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales at Westminster Abbey.
02/13/05 - Space regulations stifle innovation
The growth of the commercial space-flight industry could be stifled by over-regulating it, space tourism entrepreneurs warned US government officials on Wednesday.

02/08/05 - RhinoHydro free energy claim
In as small a space as a closet (4X4X7) you could have your own electro generating plant. After the initial cost of the unit, which is approximately $8000.00 (based on a 200 amp service), it is virtually maintenance free. This is due to the fact that it has only two moving mechanical parts.
