08/02/13 - Tommey's Clem gone classified?
Not sure what's going on with Tommey, did he make a breakthrough or is he in trouble with some suppression deal? I'm hoping he made a breakthrough based on this last video posted August 2nd, 2013, courteously brought to our attention by Chas. Tommey writes;

"Due to data on this last test run, I have no other opinion at this time to classified all data, and video's on the project."

I figured better get it up quick before it disappears. He has changed from his barrel/cone design and switched over to an off the shelf torque covenverter which he cut open and took out one of the compression disks which looks REMARKABLY like Schaubergers' Repulsine!

KeelyNet

He left the other disc inside the torque converter, balanced and rewelded it and is shown with he says 4 holes on the rim in which he will install an L shaped nozzle in each. This will be very similar to the engine described to me by Albert many years ago, but using a much more compact torque converter and with the Repulsine like compressor, probably more powerful.

It's kind of like collapsing the 3D cone version down to the 2D Repulsine/torque converter compression disc.

There are many clues in history and many cultures have been telling us about these rotating arms all along;

KeelyNet

So Tommey I hope you made a breakthrough and can spread it around to, at the very least, trusted confidants.


08/01/13 - From Atom To Cosmos
Itzhak Bentov was a scientist, inventor,and an early pioneer in the research of consciousness.

By blending analytical knowledge and intuitive insight, Bentov was the first to develop what is now widely accepted today as a holographic model of reality.

This rare recording of Bentov's last television appearance (1978) and his inspirational exploration of consciousness and the cosmos, is presented in its original form by his wife Mirtala.


08/01/13 - "Slingatron" To Hurl Payloads Into Orbit
"People have been shooting things into space since the 1940s, but in every case this has involved using rockets. This works, but it's incredibly expensive with the cheapest launch costs hovering around $2,000 per pound.

This is in part because almost every bit of the rocket is either destroyed or rendered unusable once it has put the payload into orbit.

Reusable launch vehicles like the SpaceX Grasshopper offer one way to bring costs down, but another approach is to dump the rockets altogether and hurl payloads into orbit. That's what HyperV Technologies Corp. of Chantilly, Virginia is hoping to achieve with a 'mechanical hypervelocity mass accelerator' called the slingatron."

Invented by Derek Tidman in the 1990s, the slingatron replaces rockets with a more sophisticated version of the sling famed in the story of David and Goliath, and still used today by enthusiasts to hurl pumpkins across

A sling works by spinning in a circle about the user’s head. The thong on the sling keeps the stone in place and the slinger spins it faster and faster before releasing it. The limiting factors are the speed of the slinger’s arm and the strength of the thong.

The slingatron uses a slightly different principle. If it tried to spin the entire machine fast enough to hurl a projectile into orbit, the forces generated would tear the slingatron to bits. Instead, as its name implies, it acts more like a cyclotron, which is a very simple particle accelerator.

A cyclotron is a flat, hollow metal cylinder inside of which is a vacuum. There are also a pair of magnetic or electrostatic plates of opposing charges. An atomic particle, such as a proton, is introduced into the center of the cyclotron and is attracted to the negative plate. The polarity of the plates flips and the proton rushes toward the other plate. As the frequency of the flipping is increased, the proton moved faster and faster in a series of ever widening spirals until it reaches the rim of the cyclotron and shoots out a window at extremely high velocity, though the machine itself never moves.

The goal is to build a slingatron big enough to fire a projectile at 7 km/s (15,600 mph, 25,000 km/h), which is enough to put it into orbit. Actually, it will have to be traveling faster than that when it leaves the muzzle because it has to travel through the atmosphere, where it will lose some velocity. There’s also a need for a small rocket on board for final orbit insertion and course corrections, which highlights the strengths and weaknesses of the idea.

08/01/13 - on Doyle Noyes reported death (2009)
Hmmm...Noyes...the guy who heated his building with (unpowered) custom wound wire coils....never heard anything about him after that initial mention on Keelynet MANY years ago shared with us courtesy of Bill Donovan.

Had to re-read that to make sure it had Dan Haley's experience with Noyes and it does. Dan was a great guy and I sure miss him, just got too old and passed away February 2013.

Did some hunting for Noyes as I remembered we had some discussions in the lists over the years about him but didn't find them, so here are a few others that might offer some clues. (On the Social Security Death index, I did find the death of a D. Noyes in 2009 but no city/state provided.)

Global Sciences Conference - 1992 Where I met him.

8:35 PM - Doyle Noyes, Kimberling City, MO

"The Electrostatic Electronic Conduction Convection Unit", and how it controls the direction of Infrared to balance heat and cooling in your house. A designer and inventor, Doyle has worked for the past 15 years with peaceful scalars in an attempt to solve some of our energy problems. Most of his designs defy current laws of physics.

Doubt he still lived there as the above post was from 1992. Keelynet BBS Discussion list 1993 - ...as to the work of Doyle Noyes...I don't currently have a file on him, but you are correct in mentioning a message to that effect....it was on a past crashed message base (but I saved off the threads for a file)..that I will eventually get on the board...

...it has something to do with what a good scientist friend calls "MOTOR SENSITIVES"..people like John Keely, Lester Hendershott and others who could make machines work quite easily while others could not although they copied their actions exactly...a very strange process and I won't go into it just now.

One report from a fellow who visited Pommerleau in Canada... he'd been electroshocked (so they say) so appeared a bit dim and unfocused... Pommerleau was a kid (teen I think at the time) and wanted to watch TV but the adults wouldn't give him the IR remote control...

KeelyNet So the story goes that he went out into the garden and found a frog, took it's living eyes out of it's head and glued them onto a piece of cardboard... (I don't remember the details so many years later)

...but he entered the living room where the grownups were, aimed his little cardboard remote control and would press the frog's eyes to change the TV channel.

(On re-reading this, I think it was just two frogs eyes glued looking out horizontally and he PRESSED THE EYES to change the channel on the TV. I don't recall if the cells in the living eyes died, would it still work?)

There are many reports of his custom coil circuits running motors underwater and producing free energy, etc...no one else has been able to duplicate these effects of either Noyes or Pommerleau to my knowlege.

KeelyNet The closest thing to Noyes in all these years that I've heard of is Daniel Pommerlo (u or eau optional spellings) from Canada. - Stefan, about the diagrams, there are no diagrams. The only thing you can see on the plexiglass is a couple feet of wires maybe 26 to 30 gauge rolled around a little clear plastic spool and a little switch and some other copper bolts to hold the spools. The plexiglass he is using for every demos are about 1 foot square.

The beginning of the wires are left in air and the other and are attached to the bulb or the motor or the little race car toy that he use for his demos that is about it. That guy does I tell you again really unusual things. I know it is hard to believe but for example when he is demontrated free energy on certain machine like bulbs, motors. etc. he always uses plexiglass so you can not doubt it.

And you can take the plexiglass and work with it. Last time they were electric engineers and electronic specialists at the demo and I can tell you they were pulling their hairs!!!!

Imagine running a light bulb with only one wire! So, as he said to me if you want to build these devices you have to have "faith" and if you think to much with your head it will never work.

He also said that you have to feel the energy deep inside. As soon as you know how to keep it inside then you are on the good track. One engineers try to start a motor by touching some wires on the plexiglass devices like Daniel is doing and could not do it and Daniel said if you could think with your heart then the motor would start.

Mark Solis attempts to explain "Spooky Tech" - Finally, the thought-control factor goes back to the idea of quantum entaglement with living systems. One should note that in the laboratory experiments mentioned, the thoughts of the people performing the experiments both determined the outcomes, and apparently provided the energy to produce those outcomes, whether acting as power sources, or merely as conduits for some other source of power.

KeelyNet Daniel Pomerlou demonstrates free-energy - We were taking voltage/amp measures from the lead ends. The small circuits put out 6 to 10 amps @ 18v, the big ones put out 185v @ 37amps. He ran spotlights, circular saws, he cut a one inch board with plenty of juice left, he said this one can power a house no problem.

The on/off switch is a critical part of the circuit. They do not work without them. You cannot jump them either, that doesn't work. When I first made one of his, I took readings and I got a spark which then died, now I know his boards do the same thing without a switch. They power up, but die down if there is no switch. Curious enough...

More Pommerlo free energy - In some modules that we tested, the "potential" begins in the middle (length) of a wire and not in coils... In some other modules of several AMP... when "breaking" a piece of spaghetti noodle (glue on the module)... the module completely stop... Daniel says that everything must be intact (nose buggers, noodles, beer cap, coil, ...)

The theory seems possible, we should not forget that Daniel have "mental retardation" compared to what we consider "normal" in our society. He has no notion of conventional electricity ...

One day he made me draw a microphone on a sheet of paper, with a switch and wires. Daniel took the paper and watch it intensely... then he told me the microphone works now.

Then he went out of the room (at the request of a spectator). A channel was selected on a radio (my own radio) randomly. I then pressed the switch on the drawing sheet (I was in the corner of the room to make sure that no hidden camera and / or no one see what I do), AND the radio became silent?!!, and I spoke into the microphone DRAWN on the sheet...

My voice came out of the radio at the other side of the room (50-60 ft). I made tests for many minutes and also my colleagues also performed tests ... the same result...

What can I say... Daniel made me rip a wire drawn on the sheet because he did not want me to go with a "prototype" that worked. He told me that he usually "programs" an operating time after what that "module" on the sheet stops working... but he had forgotten this time...

As you see... I think it has no direct connection with cold electricity... more with an extra sensory skill of some kind.

Lots of strange stories about both of them...how they can twist wires and use coils to produce all kinds of strange effects and being able to run a motor underwater.

Thats what EV Gray did with his cold electricity (splitting the positive he called it) where he ran motors and other electric devices underwater. So there is a possible technical clue to what this energy is that doesn't short out.

Here is a really old, low quality video - EV GRAY Demonstration AC Pulsing Cart "Cold Energy";

And this one using high frequency currents to run a lightbulb underwater using 'cold electricity';

TESLA HAIRPIN running on 10.000 VOLTS, this is cold energy, work underwater and doesn't hurt, its a pure manifestation of energy! The input is near 13W... and I'm lightning a 220V 25W bulb maybe half bright!

Everyone has felt the sensation of someone looking at them and the inventor below claims it can be quantified. It ties in with the frog eye remote control...there is a fellow in Dallas who discovered beams coming from the eyes and he has patented a circuit showing how to intercept them and use them for maybe switching relay or something.

Turns out snakes and people with focused minds have bright eyes which apparently intensify this to allow them to beam their will into another...Hypnotic Phenomena - The Hypnotic Gaze of Snakes / Evil Eye, Telekinesis and Eyebeams / Robber Uses Hypnosis to Steal From Cash Register - March 25th, 2008 / Psychic/Hypnotist Wolf Messing / Classical Indian Rope Trick / Glamour and Clouding the Mind

On being photographed using IR and yet being invisible in regular light, we must include the discoveries of Trevor Constable about Critters, UFOs, RODs, ghosts, etc. and how they are invisible in regular light but show up using infrared sensors/film. You'll also note many who claim to have come close to UFOs experience conjunctivitis (pinkeye) which could be from intense UV or even IR light.

Welding retinal burns - Welding arcs give off radiation over a broad range of wavelengths - from 200 nm (nanometres) to 1,400 nm (or 0.2 to 1.4 µm, micometres). This includes ultraviolet (UV) radiation (200 to 400 nm), visible light (400 to 700 nm), and infrared (IR) radiation (700 to 1,400 nm).

Certain types of UV radiation can produce an injury to the surface and mucous membrane (conjunctiva) of the eye called "arc eye," "welders' eye" or "arc flash." These names are common names for "conjunctivitis" - an inflammation of the mucous membrane of the front of the eye.

Conjunctivitis can be caused by infection, allergic reaction, or physical agents like infrared or ultraviolet light. ..... It is characterized by hyperaemia, itching, burning, swelling, tearing, discharge... Exposure to infrared light can heat the lens of the eye and produce cataracts over the long term.

I think what I'm trying to say here, there are probably some people who might be more sensitive to subtle energies than others, possibly able to 'FEEL' or 'SEE' bands of energy normal folks cannot.

With such abilities, it would make it easy for them to detect how energy flowed and what it took to condense, disperse, project it, even to be able to convert it from one form to another.

I know a lot of people might think they have this sensitivity, but if you can't convert it to practical use like the fellows mentioned here were able to do, then what use is it? I suspect it is simply wishing and possibly self-delusion on their part.

It's like psychics who barely make a living using their 'powers' to help others. When anyone asks them why they don't win the lottery or something, they will mostly say "we cannot use our gifts for personal benefit" but they sure can milk you for donations and love offerings and thats ok.

I'm sure real psychics and such EXIST and could be utilized to ferret out many hidden or lost things, I understand that's what Uri Geller does after vetting his psychically gifted applicants...once they have proven themselves, he hires them to find oil, gold, uranium, whatever and charges his clients appropriately. Smart man.

"A vegetarian and fervent promoter of peace, Uri has used his intuitive abilities to successfully detect oil and precious metals, one of his successes in locating a huge offshore oil field for Mexico's national oil company PEMEX resulted in Uri getting a Mexican nationality as a token of appreciation and honour by Mexico's President Jose Lopez Portillo. THIS HAS PROVIDED HIM THE FREEDOM TO HELP OTHERS."

As to faith and psi abilities, I think thats all a crappie excuse anyway from fake psychics about 'can't use my powers for personal benefit'...its not the wanting to have lots of money and security but WHAT YOU DO WITH THAT MONEY that will determine if you can get help using such means.

Some technical 'sensitives' who could produce measurable, USEFUL phenomena using their natural ability were Keely, Hendershot and Hubbard reporting only they could start and/or operate their machines.

One story about Keelynet is he hired an assistant to help him and the guy would see Keelynet 'massage' and tune his machines to make them work. Keely invited the assistant to try it and he failed everytime while copying everything Keely had done. Yet when Keely placed his hand on the assistant's shoulder and he tried again, it worked!

My late friend Vic Hansen had a metal tube about 12" X 2" which unscrewed from the center. Inside were tuning bars which were tuned to the body frequency of the inventor. Vic claimed this was similar to one Keely carried in his pocket and anyone with that 'resonant key' cylinder could operate "Keely tuned" devices. What a novel approach for security!

I think it's like training yourself to go into alpha or other states using biofeedback, we should be able to convert this 'gift' to a reproducible effect.

Seems like once they get the things going, it continues to run on its own...just need what Keely called that 'introductory impulse' using his 'sympathetic attendant' that is projected by will through the cerebellum.

The cerebrum -- which is just Latin for "brain" is the largest part of the brain as a whole. It is here that things like perception, imagination, thought, judgment, and decision occur.

The cerebellum is located at the lower back of the brain, is a fist-sized structure which plays an important role in the integration of sensory perception, coordination and motor control. The cerebellum processes input from other areas of the brain, spinal cord and sensory receptors to provide precise timing for coordinated, smooth movements of the skeletal muscular system. (It sends the weak control signals to the medulla which amplifies and transmits them to power the muscles. - JWD)

The Medulla Oblongata, or just Medulla, is the lower half of the brain steam responsible for the involuntary actions, such as cardiac, respiratory, digestive, and vasomotor. These autonomic functions are all processed and controlled by this section of the brain. (It serves as a stepup transformer to amplify weak thoughts to sufficient power for muscle control. - JWD)

As always lots of fascinating projects could accrue if people would just fund experiments and those who carry them out. (There is much more to that article linked above, but for brevity I only include part of it here.)


08/01/13 - Snowden Truly Secret?

08/01/13 - How Technology Is Destroying Jobs

KeelyNet

Robots, automation, and software can replace people might seem obvious to anyone who’s worked in automotive manufacturing or as a travel agent. But Brynjolfsson and McAfee’s claim is more troubling and controversial.

They believe that rapid technological change has been destroying jobs faster than it is creating them, contributing to the stagnation of median income and the growth of inequality in the United States. And, they suspect, something similar is happening in other technologically advanced countries.

The pattern is clear: as businesses generated more value from their workers, the country as a whole became richer, which fueled more economic activity and created even more jobs. Then, beginning in 2000, the lines diverge; productivity continues to rise robustly, but employment suddenly wilts. By 2011, a significant gap appears between the two lines, showing economic growth with no parallel increase in job creation. Brynjolfsson and McAfee call it the “great decoupling.” And Brynjolfsson says he is confident that technology is behind both the healthy growth in productivity and the weak growth in jobs.

It’s a startling assertion because it threatens the faith that many economists place in technological progress. Brynjolfsson and McAfee still believe that technology boosts productivity and makes societies wealthier, but they think that it can also have a dark side: technological progress is eliminating the need for many types of jobs and leaving the typical worker worse off than before. ­Brynjolfsson can point to a second chart indicating that median income is failing to rise even as the gross domestic product soars.

“It’s the great paradox of our era,” he says. “Productivity is at record levels, innovation has never been faster, and yet at the same time, we have a falling median income and we have fewer jobs. People are falling behind because technology is advancing so fast and our skills and organizations aren’t keeping up.”


08/01/13 - 1 in 50 across the world are affected by low droning noise
It is a noise that only two per cent of people can hear, but this low droning sound would be enough to drive anyone mad.

Scientists have been left baffled because they can’t figure out what causes a phenomenon called The Hum, or why it affects so few people.

Sufferers have identified common factors: the humming is only heard indoors, it is a low, rumbling noise, it is louder at night, and is more common in more rural areas.

A 2003 study by acoustical consultant Geoff Leventhall, from Surrey, shows that one in 50 people who live in a Hum-prone place hear the noise, and that most of these people are aged between 55 and 70.

Those who hear it can experience headaches, nausea, dizziness, nosebleeds and sleep disturbances, and the BBC reported at least one suicide as a result of the noise.

Often sufferers otherwise have perfectly normal hearing, and The Hum goes away when they leave a certain area.

Some suggest that the noise is in fact tinnitus, a condition that makes the sufferer hear noise that isn’t there, but it is thought that the noise is in fact real.

Suspected sources are industrial equipment, gas lines, power lines, and wireless communication, despite few cases being linked to them. Others suggest that it is a result of low-frequency electromagnetic radiation or seismic activity such as microseisms that are only perceptible to a select few.

Although, some experts have suggested sufferers turn to cognitive behavioural therapy to help deal with the noise.


08/01/13 - Sleep cycles fluctuate with lunar phases
Swiss researchers say they've found evidence that the lunar cycle may affect human sleep patterns.

"Melatonin levels, total sleep time and delta sleep time (the deepest sleep, as recorded by EEG) reached their lowest levels at full moon, and their highest as the moon waxed and waned.

The average time it took to fall asleep and the time to arrive at REM sleep (the type of sleep in which dreams occur) followed the opposite pattern, longest at the full moon and shorter as it waxed and waned."

“The only explanation we could come up with is that maybe there is a lunar clock in the brain, as found in other species like fish and other marine animals,” he said. “But we don’t have direct evidence for that.”


08/01/13 - Monogamy May Have Evolved To Prevent Infanticide

KeelyNet

"Human males and females have a strong tendency to live together in monogamous pairs, albeit for highly varied periods of time and degrees of fidelity.

Just how such behavior arose has been the topic of much debate among researchers. A new study comes to a startling conclusion: Among primates, including perhaps humans, monogamy evolved because it protected infants from being killed by rival males."

why did social monogamy arise at all among mammals, including primates, given the many reproductive advantages to males having access to as many females as possible?

Scientists have proposed three major hypotheses: Monogamy provides more effective parental care for infants, as in birds; it prevents females from mating with rival males, especially in species where females are widely spaced and cannot all be easily monopolized by one male; or it protects against the risk of infanticide, which is very high among some primate species, including chimpanzees and gorillas, and is often explained by the desire of a rival male to quickly return a mother to a fertile state so that he can sire his own offspring.

Some researchers think that a combination of all three factors, and perhaps still others, provide the best explanation for monogamy.


08/01/13 - How Outdated Data Distorts Doctors' Pay
"Peter Whoriskey and Dan Keating report at the Washington Post that Medicare annually pays $69.6 billion for physician services according to an arcane and little-known price list, known as the Relative Value Update over which doctors themselves exercise considerable and less-than-totally-transparent influence.

A 31-member committee of the American Medical Association (AMA) recommends what Medicare should pay for some 10,000 procedures — with the fees based in part on how long it takes to complete each one. But this time-and-motion study often fails to take full account of changing technology and other factors affecting physician productivity, so anomalies result.

For example, if the AMA time estimates are correct, then 41 percent of gastroenterologists were typically performing 12 hours or more of procedures in a day, which is longer than the typical outpatient surgery center is open and and one gastroenterologist in the Post story would have to work 26 hours, according to the committee time estimates, to accomplish what he gets done in a typical workday.

Here's how it works: Medicare pays for a 15-minute colonoscopy as if it took 75 minutes resulting in a median salary for a gastroenterologist of $481,000. It is possible that in 1992, critics allow, when the price list was first developed, a colonoscopy actually took something close to 75 minute when doctors had to hunch over an eyepiece similar to that of a microscope for a look.

But technology has advanced and now the images are processed and displayed on a large screen in high-definition video.

Responding to criticism that the nation's method of valuing medical procedures misprices payments, a bipartisan group of legislators has drafted a bill that would reshape the way the nation pays doctors. The bill would require Medicare officials to collect data such as how much time doctors spend doing procedures and reducing the doctor payment for overvalued services.

'What started as an advisory group has taken on a life of its own,' says Tom Scully, who was Medicare chief during the George W. Bush Administration. 'The idea that $100 billion in federal spending is based on fixed prices that go through an industry trade association in a process that is not open to the public is pretty wild.'"


08/01/13 - Moscow Subway Device To Read Data On Passengers' Phones
"'The head of police for Moscow's subway system has said stations will soon be equipped with devices that can read the data on the mobile telephones of passengers.

In the July 29 edition of Izvestia, Moscow Metro police chief Andrei Mokhov said the device would be used to help locate stolen mobile phones. Mokhov said the devices have a range of about 5 meters and can read the SIM card.

If the card is on the list of stolen phones, the system automatically sends information to the police. The time and place of the alert can be matched to closed-circuit TV in stations.

Izvestia reported that 'according to experts, the devices can be used more widely to follow all passengers without exception.'

Mokhov said it was illegal to track a person without permission from the authorities, but that there was no law against tracking the property of a company, such as a SIM card.' What is this all about? Is it really about detecting stolen phones/SIM cards, or is that a convenient 'cover story' for eavesdropping on people's private smartphone data while they wait to ride the subway? Also — if this scheme goes ahead, how long will it be before the U.S., Europe and other territories employ devices that do this, too?"


08/01/13 - Scientists Demonstrate Ultra-Fast Magnetite Electrical Switch
"Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory recently demonstrated electrical switching thousands of times faster than in transistors now in use thanks to a naturally magnetic mineral called magnetite (abstract).

The experiment is considered a major step forward in understanding electrical structures at the atomic level and working with recently identified electrical 'building blocks' called trimerons. The breakthrough could lead to innovations in the tiny transistors that control the flow of electricity across silicon chips, enabling faster, more powerful computing devices."


08/01/13 - Government Study Finds TSA Misconduct Up 26% In 3 Years
"CNN reports that a recent government study found TSA misconduct has risen sharply in three years. Most have heard of the problems such as stealing, but the report also notes that some employees are sleeping on the job, taking bribes, and letting friends/family through the checkpoints without screening."

Overall, 47% of the offenses detailed in the report resulted in a letter of reprimand, at least 17% cost the employees their jobs and 31% ended with a suspension.

"If they're stealing, they're doing drugs or breaching the security system intentionally and I can prove it, they're out," TSA Deputy Administrator John W. Halinski told a joint hearing of two House Homeland Security subcommittees on Wednesday.

Rep. John Mica, a Florida Republican and longtime critic of the TSA who requested the audit, is skeptical. He told CNN that the report shows the TSA is not doing enough to respond to and prevent misconduct.

"There's not even a way to properly report some of the offenses, so this may be just the tip of the iceberg of some of the offenses," he said.

The TSA has been plagued by uneven training for years, he said, resulting in a work force that isn't always properly educated about how to do their jobs.


08/01/13 - Full-Size Remote Control Cars Avatars
"Thanks to efforts of groups such as Google, Oxford University, BMW and Continental, we're getting closer and closer to the advent of autonomous cars – vehicles that drive themselves, with the human 'driver' pretty much just along as a passenger.

Researchers at Germany's Technische Universität München, however, are looking at taking things a step further.

They're developing remote-control cars that could travel along city streets with no one in them at all, their operator located somewhere far away."

what would be the point of a passenger-less car? As a couple of examples, the scientists suggest that the technology could be used to deliver rental cars or vehicles used in car-sharing programs to members’ homes, plus it could be applied to city-center parking services – you just get out when you reach your downtown destination, and your car proceeds to head off to the parking garage on its own.

So far, the TUM team has equipped a prototype Visio.M electric car with six video cameras, five of which are mounted on the back of the rearview mirror (facing forwards or to the sides) and one of which is looking out the rear window. Together, they provide a 360-degree view of the car’s surroundings.

A live feed from the cameras is transmitted to a remote operator station that resembles a driving simulator, via LTE wireless communication. At that station, three monitors display the front and side views from the car, while a fourth displays the view out the back. Microphones aboard the car provide live Dolby 5.1 audio, while force feedback mechanisms in the station’s steering wheel and brake pedal mirror the forces encountered by the car itself.

Using all this technology, a human operator simply sits at the station and remotely drives the car as if they’re playing a video game. If there’s a break in communications, the car automatically brakes and sits in place until they’re resumed.

08/01/13 - 3D Printers Pay For Themselves In Under a Year
KeelyNet "Researchers using a RepRap open source 3D printer found that the average household could save as much as $2,000 annually and recoup the cost of the printer in under a year by printing out common household items.

The Michigan Technical University (MTU) research group printed just 20 items and used 'conservative' numbers to find that the average homeowner could print common products, such as shower rings or smartphone cases, for far less money than purchasing them online at discount Websites, such as Google Shopper.

'It cost us about $18 to print all [20] items... the lowest retail cost we could find for the same items online was $312 and the highest was $1,943,' said Joshua Pearce, an associate professor in the Materials Science and Engineering Department at MTU.

'The unavoidable conclusion from this study is that the RepRap [3D printers] is an economically attractive investment for the average U.S. household already.'"

It works similar to a transformer. Electricity and magnetism are interconnected. The magnets are positioned N,S,N,S and so on? around the wheel. When the wheel spins, it creates a varying magnetic field. This varying magnetic field induces an electric current in the pipe (or any conductor) just like it does in a transformer. This results in heat.

An induction cook-top does something similar, however it uses a time-varying electric current to generate the varying magnetic field.

The thing is, is whether boiling water in? a water tank via magnetic wheel is more efficient in saving electricity than simply boiling the water themselves with the rods in boilers. - Full Article Source

07/28/13 - World will use 56 percent more energy by 2040

KeelyNet

Developing countries are driving the consumption of inexpensive fossil fuels, relying on them to fuel their emerging economies. That growth is likely to continue, but government intervention and international exchanges of low-carbon technology can help mitigate the energy and environmental impacts of economic development, experts say.

Global energy consumption will grow by 56 percent between 2010 and 2040, according to the report, released Thursday by the US Energy Information Administration (EIA). Renewable and nuclear energy are projected to grow the fastest, but fossil fuels will continue to dominate, making up 80 percent of world energy use through 2040.

That dominance is visible in countries like China and India where sustained, long-term growth has driven demand for cheap and prevalent sources of fuel like coal and oil. Energy use within the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), which represents the developed nations, is projected to grow only 17 percent between 2010 and 2040. Outside the OECD, however, it's expected to rise by 90 percent, according to EIA.

"Rising prosperity in China and India is a major factor in the outlook for global energy demand. These two countries combined account for half the world's total increase in energy use through 2040," EIA Administrator Adam Sieminski said in a statement Tuesday. "This will have a profound effect on the development of world energy markets."

China consumed 47 percent of the world's coal in 2010, according to EIA, and its reliance on the carbon-heavy source of fuel will continue in the decades to come. But China is diversifying its portfolio and technologies like carbon capture and storage, which can help curb emissions growth. - Full Article Source

07/28/13 - All Wars Are Bankers' Wars
KeelyNet See a pattern here?

Shortly after President Jackson (the only American President to actually pay off the National Debt) ended the Second Bank of the United States, there was an attempted assassination which failed when both pistols used by the assassin, Richard Lawrence, failed to fire. Lawrence later said that with Jackson dead, "Money would be more plenty."

Of course, the public school system is as subservient to the bankers' wishes to keep certain history from you, just as the corporate media is subservient to Monsanto's wishes to keep the dangers of GMOs from you, and the global warming cult's wishes to conceal from you that the Earth has actually been cooling for the last 16 years. Thus is should come as little surprise that much of the real reasons for the events of the Civil War are not well known to the average American.

KeelyNet

When the Confederacy seceded from the United States, the bankers once again saw the opportunity for a rich harvest of debt, and offered to fund Lincoln's efforts to bring the south back into the union, but at 30% interest. Lincoln remarked that he would not free the black man by enslaving the white man to the bankers and using his authority as President, issued a new government currency, the greenback. This was a direct threat to the wealth and power of the central bankers, who quickly responded.

Goaded by the private bankers, much of Europe supported the Confederacy against the Union, with the expectation that victory over Lincoln would mean the end of the Greenback. France and Britain considered an outright attack on the United States to aid the confederacy, but were held at bay by Russia, which had just ended the serfdom system and had a state central bank similar to the system the United States had been founded on.

Left free of European intervention, the Union won the war, and Lincoln announced his intention to go on issuing greenbacks.

Following Lincoln's assassination, the Greenbacks were pulled from circulation and the American people forced to go back to an economy based on bank notes borrowed at interest from the private bankers. Tsar Alexander II, who authorized Russian militarey assistance to Lincoln, was himself assassinated one year later.

KeelyNetFinally, in 1913, the Private Central Bankers of Europe, in particular the Rothschilds of Great Britain and the Warburgs of Germany, met with their American financial collaborators on Jekyll Island, Georgia to form a new banking cartel with the express purpose of forming the Third Bank of the United States, with the aim of placing complete control of the United States money supply once again under the control of private bankers. Owing to hostility over the previous banks, the name was changed to "The Federal Reserve" system in order to grant the new bank a quasi-governmental image, but in fact it is a privately owned bank, no more "Federal" than Federal Express.

Indeed, in 2012, the Federal Reserve successfully rebuffed a Freedom of Information Lawsuit by Bloomberg News on the grounds that as a private banking corporation and not actually a part of the government, the Freedom of Information Act did not apply to the operations of the Federal Reserve. 1913 proved to be a transformative year for the nation's economy, first with the passage of the 16th "income tax" Amendment and the false claim that it had been ratified.

"I think if you were to go back and and try to find and review the ratification of the 16th amendment, which was the internal revenue, the income tax, I think if you went back and examined that carefully, you would find that a sufficient number of states never ratified that amendment." - U.S. District Court Judge James C. Fox, Sullivan Vs. United States, 2003.

KeelyNet Later that same year, and apparently unwilling to risk another questionable amendment, Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act over Christmas holiday 1913, while members of Congress opposed to the measure were at home.

This was a very underhanded deal, as the Constitution explicitly vests Congress with the authority to issue the public currency, does not authorize its delegation, and thus should have required a new Amendment to transfer that authority to a private bank. But pass it Congress did, and President Woodrow Wilson signed it as he promised the bankers he would in exchange for generous campaign contributions. Wilson later regretted that decision.

As President, John F. Kennedy understood the predatory nature of private central banking. He understood why Andrew Jackson fought so hard to end the Second Bank of the United States. So Kennedy wrote and signed Executive Order 11110 which ordered the US Treasury to issue a new public currency, the United States Note.

KeelyNetKennedy's United States Notes were not borrowed form the Federal Reserve but created by the US Government and backed by the silver stockpiles held by the US Government. It represented a return to the system of economics the United States had been founded on, and was perfectly legal for Kennedy to do.

All told, some four and one half billion dollars went into public circulation, eroding interest payments to the Federal Reserve and loosening their control over the nation.

Five months later John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas Texas, and the United States Notes pulled from circulation and destroyed (except for samples held by collectors).

John J. McCloy, President of the Chase Manhattan Bank, and President of the World Bank, was named to the Warren Commission, presumably to make certain the banking dimensions behind the assassination were concealed from the public.

As we enter the eleventh year of what future history will most certainly describe as World War Three, we need to examine the financial dimensions behind the wars. (Thanks to El Sargento for this information. - JWD) - Full Article Source

07/28/13 - Energy storage for consumer electronics - a $33 bn market landscape
KeelyNet This market, which includes laptops, mobile phones, tablets, digital cameras and eBook readers, is set for growth in the medium term with an approximate CAGR of 6%. The figure below measures the market size and growth in terms of total energy storage capacity, which is set to increase from 28 GWh in 2012 to 56 GWh in 2023.

Portable devices are also increasingly becoming multi-functional. For example, a mobile phone today does much more than make phone calls; it also acts as a camera, watch, navigation system, internet navigation, multi-media player, etc. This is transforming their power consumption levels and patterns.

Indeed, this trend towards multi-functionality has accelerated the rate of increase in power consumption demands much faster than the main battery technologies have managed to improve. This has created a widening performance requirement gap between existing commercial solutions and consumer expectations. In turn, this is creating a global push to develop technologies that challenge current lithium ion batteries.

The industry is also taking a fresh look at supercapacitors as part of the solution, competing with other storage devices. This is because supercapacitors have better physical principles than alternatives for handling sudden bursts of power demands, which is consistent with how smart portal devices operate. - Full Article Source

07/28/13 - Propane forge built from a soup can
It doesn’t look like much, but this easy to build propane forge is just what you need to try your hand at blacksmithing. [Code Cowboy] took on the build after watching this how-to video which shows the fabrication of a small knife after completing the forge build.

The first step is to eat all of the soup (or beans if you prefer). With an empty can in hand the stand — made of two angle brackets — and inlet are attached. Next comes the heat proofing for the walls of the forge.

At first glance we thought that cat litter was one of the ingredients, but that’s just an empty container used to haul playground sand.

The sand is mixed with equal parts of plaster of paris before adding water to achieve a clay-like consistency. This is packed into the can, with a small opening to receive the metal to be heated.

The torch itself can be used to cure the heat shield. After letting the mixture harden a 30 minute burn will force the rest of the water out of the heat proofing. - Full Article Source

By feeding counterfeit radio signals to the yacht, the UT team was able to drive the ship far off course, steer it left and right, potentially take it into treacherous waters, even put it on a collision course with another ship.

07/28/13 - Would You Let a Robot Stick You With a Needle?
"IEEE Spectrum has a story about a robot that uses infra red and ultrasound to image veins, picks the one with best bloodflow, and then sticks a needle in. (video included). Veebot started as an undergrad project and the creators are aiming for better performance than a human phlebotimist before going for clinical trials. Robodracula anyone?"

To use the Veebot system, a patient puts his or her arm through an archway over a padded table. Inside the archway, an inflatable cuff tightens around the arm, holding it in place and restricting blood flow to make the veins easier to see.

An infrared light illuminates the inner elbow for a camera; software matches the camera’s view against a model of vein anatomy and selects a likely vein. The vein is examined with ultrasound to confirm that it’s large enough and has sufficient blood flowing through it.

The robot then aligns the needle and sticks it in. The whole process takes about a minute, and the only thing the technician has to do is attach the appropriate test tube or IV bag.

Currently, Veebot’s machine can correctly identify the best vein to target about 83 percent of the time, says Harris, which is about as good as a human. Harris wants to get that rate up to 90 percent before clinical trials. However, while he expects to achieve this in three to five months, he will then have to secure outside funding to cover the expense of those trials.

Harris estimates the market for his technology to be about US $9 billion, noting that “blood is drawn a billion times a year in the U.S. alone; IVs are started 250 million times.” Veebot will initially try to sell to large medical facilities. - Full Article Source

07/28/13 - What happened to Magnetic Air Cars?
The Magnetic Air Car uses three on-board substations to harness compressed air. The resulting airflow is channeled, modulated, and converted to torque that propels the car.

According to company representative Paul Donovan, the car uses a silicon salt battery that has 30% more mass power than a lead acid storage battery and can charge completely within an hour. The 95 percent recyclable battery can also can be used in a temperature range from -40 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees Celsius.

The vehicle draws comparisons to Tata Motors’ 106 mpg air car, but Donovan says that the Tata Motors design uses pistons while the Magnetic Air Car design uses magnetic technology.

The Magnetic Air Car uses compressed air technology for propulsion, but unlike Tata Motors air engine, or DiPietro, theirs uses a different design: three on-board air compressors channel the air stream towards something that probably is a magnetic motor, something that everybody thinks is still Sci-Fi. But it’s not. The magnets, repelling each other, can be a source of movement, and, if properly propelled by an air jet, could have “devastating” effects in terms of power. Once again, this is only a probability, no exact specifications of their technology have been made yet.

- The manufacturers variously claimed that the car had no emissions and self-replenished its compressed air supply by an undisclosed technology called "Air Cycle Machine"[1]; that a battery started a "magnetic motor" that ran an air compressor and the vehicle never needed to be refuelled or recharged[2][3]; or that it had no tailpile emissions and ran on an air compressor that was powered by a fast-recharging "silicon salt battery"[2] or "Silicon Energy Storage Battery"[4] (terms that do not correspond to any known battery technology).

The battery was claimed to cost less than $70 and be maintenance free, acid free, recyclable, and long lasting.[citation needed] No information was made available regarding the 'Magnet motor'. No details about the vehicle itself were ever announced. Given that the vehicle was supposedly able to generate energy without any fuel, it constituted a perpetual motion machine. - Full Article Source

07/28/13 - bama "effectively rewriting the Constitution," says Assange

KeelyNet

"Every single day in the press articles are published that derive from either the diplomatic cables published by WikiLeaks or from the Iraq and Afghanistan war logs," he said.

There is "no allegation by the United States government that even a single person has come to harm" as result of the massive leaks, Assange said.

Assange says President Barack Obama is deliberately seeking to expand the use of the Espionage Act to cover journalists reporting on leaked material.

"There's a harmonization of approach to get up this new legal theory regarding the Espionage Act," he said, referencing the involvement of Fox News reporter James Rosen and New York Times reporter James Risen in criminal leak probes as part of "an extremely worrying path the Obama administration has gone down."

The Australian-born secret-spiller predicted the U.S. Supreme Court may ultimately invalidate parts of the Espionage Act.

The Espionage Act of 1917 made it a crime;

To convey information with intent to interfere with the operation or success of the armed forces of the United States or to promote the success of its enemies. This was punishable by death or by imprisonment for not more than 30 years or both.

To convey false reports or false statements with intent to interfere with the operation or success of the military or naval forces of the United States or to promote the success of its enemies when the United States is at war, to cause or attempt to cause insubordination, disloyalty, mutiny, refusal of duty, in the military or naval forces of the United States, or to willfully obstruct the recruiting or enlistment service of the United States. This was punishable by a maximum fine of $10,000 or by imprisonment for not more than 20 years or both.

The Act also gave the Postmaster General authority to impound or to refuse to mail publications that he determined to be in violation of its prohibitions.[14]

The Act also forbids the transfer of any naval vessel equipped for combat to any nation engaged in a conflict in which the United States is neutral. Seemingly uncontroversial when the Act was passed, this later became a legal stumbling block for the administration of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, when he sought to provide military aid to Great Britain before the United States entered World War II.

Using the Espionage Act, Obama is "effectively rewriting the Constitution," Assange said. The First Amendment, he noted, has "no exception for an embarrassed military or an embarrassed White House. What part of 'no' does President Barack Obama not understand?" - Full Article Source

07/28/13 - Defund Obamacare before Americans become ‘addicted’ to subsidies
KeelyNet “On Jan. 1, the exchanges kick in and the subsidies kick in,” said the Texas Republican in a speech Saturday at the Western Conservative Summit.

“Once those kick in, it’s going to prove almost impossible to undo Obamacare. The administration’s plan is very simple: Get everyone addicted to the sugar so that Obamacare remains a permanent feature of our society.”

Mr. Cruz’s remarks were greeted with several standing ovations by the estimated 2,000 attendees at the Denver Hyatt Regency and those watching the summit by remote feed in Arizona.

Conservative speakers took frequent aim at the Affordable Care Act during the first two days of the three-day summit, which ends Sunday.

“When Obamacare is enacted, 8 million people who are currently insured will lose their health insurance, and 30 million people still will not have health insurance,” said Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin. “Instead of addressing our most pressing problems, many of our so-called elected reps are moving full speed ahead in ways that will contribute to bigger problems and will lead to the full implementation of Obamacare.”

(I fear it's too late...there are SO MANY PEOPLE sucking an easy life from the government. Watch Judge Judy or any of the others.

I see it with disability claims and people swapping ways to cheat the government for money by claiming they are disabled (gaming the system), even 100%, yet they have all limbs, live in big expensive houses, drive new vehicles and openly brag about receiving up to $3,000 a month.

07/28/13 - States tell Feds to Keep Out!
KeelyNet Infuriated by what they see as the long arm of Washington reaching into their business, states are increasingly telling the feds: Keep out!

Bills that would negate a variety of federal laws have popped up this year in the vast majority of states — with the amount of anti-federal legislation sharply on the rise during the Obama administration, according to experts.

The nullification trend in recent years has largely focused on three areas: gun control, health care and national standards for driver’s licenses. It has touched off fierce fights within the states and between the states and the feds, as well as raising questions and court battles over whether any of the activity is legal.

In at least 37 states, legislation has been introduced that in some way would gut federal gun regulations, according to the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence. The bills were signed into law this spring in two states, Kansas and Alaska, and in two others lawmakers hope to override gubernatorial vetoes.

Twenty states since 2010 have passed laws that either opt out of or challenge mandatory parts of Obamacare, the National Conference of State Legislatures says. And half the states have approved measures aimed knocking back the Real ID Act of 2005, which dictates Washington’s requirements for issuing driver’s licenses.

“The federal government doesn’t have the authority to do a lot of what it’s trying to do these days, from regulating guns within state borders, as my bill deals with, or telling us what kinds of light bulbs to put in our lamps,” Rubin said.

Rubin said. “The more federal overreach in Obamacare and elsewhere, the more [the administration] chooses to act in ways we believe are unconstitutional, the more we’re going to push back. I would encourage any state to assert to the strongest possible extent against the Obama administration, or any federal administration, rights clearly reserved to the states.”

“It’s time for the states to assert their authority … as the parent in the relationship with the federal government, to take back that role,” Funderburk said. - Full Article Source

07/28/13 - 600 Reasons Turmeric May Be The World’s Most Important Herb
Turmeric turns the entire drug-based medical model on its head. Instead of causing far more side effects than therapeutic ones, as is the case for most patented pharmaceutical medications, turmeric possesses hundreds of potential side benefits, having been empirically demonstrated to positively modulate over 160 different physiological pathways in the mammalian body.

At GreenMedInfo.com, we have reviewed over 5,000 study abstracts from the National Library of Medicine’s bibliographic database known as MEDLINE and have discovered over 600 potential health benefits of turmeric, and/or its primary polyphenol known as curcumin. These can be viewed on GreenMedInfo’s turmeric research page which is dedicated to disseminating the research on the topic to a larger audience.

Some of the most amazing demonstrated properties include:

Destroying Multi-Drug Resistant Cancer
Destroying Cancer Stem Cells (arguably, the root of all cancer)
Protecting Against Radiation-Induced Damage
Reducing Unhealthy Levels of Inflammation
Protecting Against Heavy Metal Toxicity
Preventing and Reversing Alzheimer’s Disease Associated Pathologies

Again, what is so amazing is not that turmeric may have value in dozens of health conditions simultaneously, or that it may improve conditions that are completely resistant to conventional treatment, but that there are over six hundred additional health conditions it may also be valuable in preventing and/or treating. Consider also the fact that turmeric grows freely on the Earth, and you will understand why its very existence threatens billions of dollars in pharmaceutical industry revenue. - Full Article Source


07/28/13 - The Fourneyron waterwheel

KeelyNet

Someone sent me info about this incredibly efficient waterwheel and I can't find the email that showed the remarkable amount of power they were producing using this design. I will keep looking for the email. - JWD)

Designed by a Frenchman named, Benoit Fourneyron in 1834. It was the end result of much effort by the French to design more efficient equipment to harness their streams to power their growing industry. The Fourneyron Turbine was a sensation from day one. It could handle any head from less than a foot up to many hundreds of feet efficiently. ( Up to 85% ) It could handle much more water flow than the open vertical wheels and it turned many times faster. It is as good today as it was in the 1830's. ( Maybe Better )

We at the Water Wheel Factory have chosen the Fourneyron design for our production. It is a simple design as the blades are bent only in one plane unlike most modern turbines which twist their blades. The original Fourneyron runners were cast all in one piece.

The blades must to be made to exact "geometric" specifications so we have computerized the original formulas and specifications so that we can cut the individual pieces with a computer guided laser cutter and then weld them together into a modern version of the original runner. This has cut the cost of production by half. Also the modern steel of which they are made is much stronger and smoother than the old cast iron was. It is easy to size the Fourneyron Turbine to the exact needs of the individual site where it is to be employed. We have all of the original formulas. Each turbine is fabricated for the exact flow and fall where it will operate.

As originally designed the Fourneyron had one "negative" quality. Its efficiency fell off sharply at part gate. We have fixed this and our new version can deliver near maximum efficiency down to 25% gate. The Fourneyron Turbine is of the outflow type. This means that you can see the action as the water exits all around the outside of the turbine. It needs no draft tube and you can position it just above,just below,or completely under the water with excellent efficiency. - Full Article Source

07/28/13 - Real reason NASA bombed our Hollow Moon

KeelyNet

After seeing the video of NASA bombing the moon I thought that I better share with the world the real reason why they bombed the moon.

It was closed when they tried to bomb it yet it was open when NASA starlight took pics of it.

As NASA has shown hostility against the moon missions in past it is only logical they were trying to open it so they could do what they really want and that's drop a nuke down the open aperture.

They did not succeed and the reason is its too dam thick.

To the disbelievers the link below showing the beginning of the bomb run.

(I've read and think its quite possible, that the moon is an artificial hollow body which is basically a giant hotel, built by the ancients (ETs, dead earlier earth societies, etc.).

Knowing the earth goes through cataclysms which destroy much of life, this hollow lunar body can host hundreds or thousands of chosen people to act as "seed material" for when the earth has settled down and is ready to be repopulated.

This would explain the many occurrences of primitives suddenly showing science and technology that appears out of the blue, passed along to them by "gods" whose job it is to re-educate their destitute, now backwards civilizations.

KeelyNet Perhaps this is what the Rapture (not actually mentioned in the bible) is talking about.

The word "rapture" is not found in Scripture. It is derived from the Latin word "rapere", which means to be "transported from one place to another."

It is a good word to describe the events of the "catching up." The Greek word is "harpazo" literally translated as "shall be seized."

KeelyNetChristian legend says that Gabriel is the one spoken of in the Book of Revelation who blows the final trumpet announcing Judgment Day (Rev. 11:15). So, when Gabriel blows his horn it's time for the Final Judgment.

Is it too far out to imagine that we might be warned by mysterious global noises and that ETs might be scanning our populations to find the best candidates to "transport" from one place to another, ergo, Earth to the Moon in anticipation of some global cataclysm?

I would like to preface this by saying that colorectal cancer is a very real, frightening and deadly disease, and I am in no way making light of that fact. But, a colonoscopy injury can be as lethal and cause as much fear and suffering as colorectal cancer itself.

So the question here is, which one carries the greatest risk of actually happening to you in your lifetime? Especially between the age of fifty to sixty?

Reported in this study from 2006; “The perforation rate reported from colonoscopies was 1 in 1000 procedures, and ‘serious complications’ occurred in 5 in 1000”. According The Annals Of Internal Medicine’s report on colonoscopies, an estimated 70,000 (0.5%) will be injured or killed by a complication related to this procedure. This figure is 22% higher than the annual deaths from colorectal cancer itself – the very disease the device was designed to prevent.

The average age for developing colorectal cancer is 71 [source]. The medical industry recommends screening starting at the age of 50 and as low as 45 for African-Americans. So, for the first couple of decades, you are risking your life with a dangerous, invasive procedure to diagnose a disease that is far less of a risk at that age than the odds of being injured by the screening device. I could stop right there, because that should be enough to make a critical thinker forget about this barbaric diagnostic tool, at least until the age of 65. But, there is more – a whole lot more to consider, which leads me to believe we should search to discover a safer and more effective tool.

Many of the related injuries associated with colonoscopies go unreported or are never diagnosed. Death from colon cancer will very rarely not be reported as the cause of death, so those are accurate predictions. But, we have no idea just how high the actual number for colonoscopy injuries and death may actually be [more]. I am living proof of that. The reason for the necrosis of my bowels was unreported because all priorities focused on saving my life, not what caused the decline. Nowhere on my medical record is the reason for what caused my organs to die reported, so I doubt that I am part of those statistics, even though I am a victim of a colonoscopy.

One of the more dangerous outcomes of a colonoscopy is the one I was a victim of – a perforation. Everyone considering this diagnostic procedure is required to sign a paper stating that they understand all of the injuries possible with this invasion of their organs with a mechanical device and the air pressure exerted in order to inflate the colon. The list of the horrific complications, including death, should be enough to give anyone pause. But, patients are immediately calmed when their doctors explains that these things are rare.

The favorite tool of compliance in the doctor’s arsenal is the phrase “I’m not worried about it”. They’re not the ones about to have a metal tube shoved four feet up their pooper and they also understand that by signing that paper, you have waived all rights to legal compensation if injured. Any wonder why they’re not worried? As long as your insurance checks out, they won’t break a sweat.

Other than perforations, there are other dangers, including a list of possible reactions to the anesthesia (propofol) that is typically used during a colonoscopy. Though rare, they can range from deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism to pneumonia. Probably the largest risk with propofol is the fact that it suppresses your respiration. If given too much, the patient can stop breathing.

This is why you should make sure that you have this procedure performed in a facility that is equipped to handle such a situation, in case you stop breathing. No other cancer screening test requires a patient to be rendered unconscious to perform.

Because you will be unconscious, you will not be witness to the procedure, so the patient has no idea how well the procedure was performed or how much time the doctor took to examine thoroughly. The insurance companies pay the same price whether the doctor takes 20 minutes or 2 minutes – the faster they can do them, the more procedures they can get paid for per day. Most accidents happen because of fast and sloppy procedures. - Full Article Source

07/26/13 - Bill Gates Is Beginning To Dream the Thorium Dream

KeelyNet

"TerraPower, the Gates-chaired nuclear power company, has garnered the most attention for pursuing traveling wave reactor tech, which runs entirely on spent uranium and would rarely need to be refueled. But Terrapower just quietly announced that it's going to start seriously exploring thorium power, too."

While the company’s “big bet” continues to be on a fast reactor that TerraPower calls a traveling wave reactor (TWR), it is exploring other designs that could offer improvements in safety, waste and economics, CEO John Gilleland told me in a phone interview.

“We are an innovation house, so we like to look at other approaches,” Gilleland said. “Our big bet is on the traveling wave reactor because it fulfills so many of the goals that we would like to see nuclear achieve. But we’re always looking for innovations that lead to better safety or minimization of waste and so forth and so we have several things going there. Although those activities are small, that’s the way large activities get started.”

TerraPower’s interest in alternatives such as molten salt reactors (MSRs) came to light last month when the company’s director of innovation, Jeff Latkowski, surfaced in the audience at the Thorium Energy Alliance Conference in Chicago. The two-day gathering included presentations on thorium fuel and on reactors including molten salt reactors, high temperature solid fuel reactors, accelerator driven reactors, and others.

Latkowski quietly joined the five-year-old Bellevue, Wash., company a year ago to look after alternative approaches to nuclear. “My job at TerraPower is everything outside the Traveling Wave Reactor,” Latkowski told me in an email exchange after the Chicago event.

MSR WITH A PROPRIETARY TWIST - That includes MSRs, the design known by its enthusiasts to efficiently and safely produce high temperature heat for electricity generation and for industrial processes. MSRs use liquid fuel that cannot melt down and that harmlessly drains into a holding tank in the event of an emergency. They operate at atmospheric pressure rather than at potentially dangerous high pressures associated with conventional reactors. MSRs augur improvements in waste and a reduction in weapons proliferation threats, especially if they run thorium fuel. Tennessee’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory built an experimental version in the 1960s, under the direction of Alvin Weinberg.

Another benefit for MSRs, as Gilleland noted, is that “your fuel is not as susceptible to the sort of neutron damage that other approaches are.” In other words, MSRs have a much higher “burn up” – they make greater use of fuel – than do conventional solid fuel reactors.

“We’re thinking about it and trying to work on it and we have a few proprietary ideas that we’re cooking up,” Gilleland said in relation to MSRs. He did provide details of the “proprietary” ideas, noting that, “We like to work on an idea for a while before we run out and tell about it – so we have some ideas which we’re trying to ferret out how good they are.”

Thorium is a naturally-occurring mildly-radioactive element named after Thor, the Norse god of thunder. When used as a fuel in nuclear reactors, particularly molten salt reactors, it can be used to generate huge amounts of safe, zero-emission energy.

Thorium is one of the most energy-dense elements found in nature: it has been estimated that just 5,000 tonnes of thorium contain enough energy to meet the world’s total energy demand for an entire year. 5,000 tonnes may seem like a lot, but in 2011 the world used over 6 billion tonnes of coal alone.

Thorium is around three-to-four times more abundant than uranium, with particular concentrations in Australia, China, India, Norway and the United States. It is often found alongside deposits of rare earths.

Astonishingly, thorium is currently dumped as waste, rather than being valued as a vital source of clean energy for the 21st Century. The Weinberg Foundation’s mission is to revive interest in this forgotten element and place thorium energy technologies at the centre of the global energy debate. - Full Article Source

07/26/13 - US Gained a Decade of higher IQ Points by Adding Iodine To Salt

KeelyNet

"Business Insider reports, 'Iodized salt is so ubiquitous that we barely notice it. Few people know why it even exists. Iodine deficiency remains the world's leading cause of preventable mental retardation.

According to a new study (abstract), its introduction in America in 1924 had an effect so profound that it raised the country's IQ.

A new NBER working paper from James Feyrer, Dimitra Politi, and David N. Weil finds that the population in iodine-deficient areas saw IQs rise by a full standard deviation, which is 15 points, after iodized salt was introduced....

The mental impacts were unknown, the program was started to fight goiter, so these effects were an extremely fortunate, unintended side effect.'"

How Adding Iodine to Salt Boosted Americans’ IQ - The economists found that in the lowest-iodine areas—the bottom quarter of the study population—the introduction of iodized salt had stark effects. Men from these regions born in 1924 or later were significantly more likely to get into the Air Force and had an average IQ that was 15 points higher than their predecessors.

Iodine’s mental benefits may even help explain the Flynn Effect, which observes that IQ rose about 3 points per decade in developed countries throughout the 20th century. It’s been thought that improved health and nutrition were the driving forces of the Flynn Effect. Now, it appears that iodine alone was responsible for roughly one decade of that remarkable climb. All the more reason, then, for the rest of the world to follow suit and relegate iodine deficiency to the history books. - Full Article Source

07/26/13 - Reader comments about USA blocking efficient cars
KeelyNet With regard to an earlier post about 50 plus MPG cars not allowed in the U.S. or Canada - reader Derrick sends this interesting information;

Came across the news article on cars which get greater than 50mpg. It's alarming to read something like this but the reality is that this is sensationalism.

I have a degree in auto restoration and I have worked for mercedes benz at the factory restoration shop both here(usa) and in Germany. In the 1970s and 1980s the usa allowed "grey market cars" that is cars could be imported if they were from a reputable manufacturer which sold cars in the usa, just not the ones you wanted.

That all changed in the late 1980s when american car companies lobbied congress long and hard to prevent their european and asian counter parts from "stealing" customers who desired euro or japan spec cars(which at the time did not need pollution controls, 85mph speedos, or any of the other poorly performing safety and emissions controls that usa manufacturers were forced to comply with.). Thus it was in the name of "fair competition" that american manufacturers lobbied to get laws which they wrote on the books banning importation of non "american" spec cars.

In the enthusiast community this has been a sore spot ever since the legislation was passed but hey, GM Ford and Chrysler have all the money so what are you gonna do?

Commonly lusted after cars include any hand made low volume(but usually fairly reasonably priced) British sports cars, which for obvious reasons could not go through the red tape required to sell here. As well as other well loved world classics like alfa romeo's, homologation rally cars, etc. Even euro spec grey market Mercedes Benz's which were once legal are now illegal.

For those cars listed in the article to be legal, the glass must be made in the USA and installed by a licensed installer. The emissions controls must be thrown away and USA versions installed. Airbags, seat belts, and any other safety equipment must be from a USA supplier as well. and the emissions data and safety crash test data be officially sent to the EPA for verification.

The purpose of this legislation was so that the Big Three would not have to fight with European and Japanese rivals who produced better products. It's not government thing.... they were lobbied to death by the big three until congress folded under the pressure.

All of the cars listed are well known to american enthusiasts, it's not a conspiracy, thats something that yellow journalism created.

Here are the basics for each of the cars listed:

Euro spec Scion XD

That car only gets the mileage quoted with the base euro engine. These engines no matter what the company are generally considered of too small hp and torque to please american customers(and their right) Having personally driven sub 2L European cars quite frequently I can tell you that american driving habits are not suitable to the low displacement high RPM, low torque engines of European and Japanese economy cars. This generalization holds true to all but the very latest (2013-2014) european engines. The newest ford 3 cylinder as designed for Europe IS available in usa cars and is the first of this engine class to be able to handle american's poor driving habits without suffering damage.

The Nissan Qashqai - The Qashqai is a world car, styled in Europe and designed generally around European tastes. Instead of the Qashqai, we get 2 small Suv/cuv's the Rouge and Murrano. They use american designed engines, and sit on their midsized car chassis and drivetrain. The bottom line is that qashqai has no real american analog, except in vehicle size/class.

The Bluemotion series of VW's

These are a trim package on vehicles which are availible for sale in usa. The trim package is NOT offered in the united states for obvious reason-- American's already commonly complain about the performance of VW's OTHER TDI engines(which still get around 56mpg regardless of the newly revised EPA ratings).

All of the bluemotion cars feature revised aerodynamics and styling, not a problem in the american market but acceleration times and peak power are way down on these vehicles compared to their non bluemotion counterparts. In addition, having read the reports of americans who have tested these vehicles, the american driver DOES NOT get the european rated fuel economy. The reasons for this are well known. American driving styles require different engine paramaters than most european manufactures are willing to accomodate.

THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE CASE. As a general rule Europeans prefer low torque high RPM engines(as to asians). Lucky for them, this is where most of the fuel economy gains are to be had. For us americans, the low RPM, HIGH Torque engines we demand require timing and burn profiles which HAVE NEVER been optimized for fuel economy. It can be done but as a rule most americans really don't care about fuel economy as much as they say they do(they still buy 18mpg 2ton trucks by the millons....).

As far as VW's brilliant little 261mpg roadster. Here's the deal on that car, It is VW's moon shot, it is the ecological version of VW's last moon shot(the bugatti Veyron). It has a top speed of 100mph, it costs 250,000 Euro to build each one, and is made of hand laid carbon fiber(read, not repairable if crashed.). They are only putting them into limited production and will cost enough so that VW does not completely loose money on the deal.

There is serious talk of using this vehicle as a spring board for a high volume version that WOULD come to the usa. This car Is NOT a real production car, it is a fantasy build. Nice as it is, it is the hypermiler's ultimate supercar.

Seat is VW of spain, using the very same components....

Renault is considering a return to the usa but after it's last attempt at this market I doubt it will (they got burned pretty bad by us expectations which did not match the type of cars they were producing.).

There are many things you can do to improve fuel economy... plasma spark plugs, low rolling resistance tires, and smoothing out the under body alone could get you up around 100mpg if you do it right. Fuel economy is a numbers game. It's not a conspiracy, it comes down this, In order for these vehicle to come to the united states they MUST be up to our driving standards and they are NOT. SOME Americans would buy them and love them... the local yokkel with 2 ton pickup would(and DOES) resent them. The consumer climate in this country runs counter to what is needed for MFG's to consider selling them here. Most of the cars could be easily sold here if there was a demand, as it's mostly paper work that is required(the glass requirement, FYI can be waived if a MFG does the right paperwork.).

Also, there is no reason to use fuel in an automobile, there are many other alternatives ALREADY AVAILABLE to enterprising people. The problem is, most people are too lazy, or apathetic to DIY it.

The vehicles listed are not sold in usa for a good reason, They either are the wrong engine for our driving style or a type of car which has historically sold very poorly in the usa (the VW wagons for instance are not huge sellers here.).

There has historically been suppression of potential advancements by USA auto manufactures out of greed and the fear of competition... but at the same time, the inventors which SOLD THEIR INVENTIONS TO THE AUTO COMPANIES are to blame as well. They knew when they sold out, that the inventions would not see the light of day (otherwise they would have worked out a licensing agreement of some sort.) simply because they were/are all offered a large cash sum and a formal agreement to never talk about these things again.

IF the various inventors of these automotive advancements would NOT have signed these agreements these inventions could be found today as real objects in use.

As with any business venture it's all about the money...on both sides. - Note from Keelynet reader - thanks Derrick

07/26/13 - Beating the heat with geothermal cooling
KeelyNet A while back, [Erich]‘s oil heating system was due for a few repairs. Given the increasing price of fuel oil, and a few incentives from his Swiss government, he decided to go with a more green heating solution – geothermal heating.

The system works well in the winter, but it’s basically useless in the summer. [Erich] decided to put his 180 meter investment to work for the summer heat, and made his geothermal heating system into a cooling system with a fairly low investment and minimal cost.

The stock system works by pumping cold liquid from [Erich]‘s under floor heating into the Earth.

In winter, the surface is always colder than the ground, thus heating [Erich]‘s home. In the summer, the situation is reversed, with the cool earth insulated by the baked surface. All that was required to reverse the heating system was a few slight modifications to the heating controller.

Stock, [Erich]‘s heat pump controller doesn’t have the capability to run the system in reverse, so he turned to a Freescale board to turn the compressor off and the pump on.

With the additions, [Erich] is using 50 Watts to pump 1.5 kW of heat directly into the Earth below, a fairly efficient cooling system that’s basically free if you already have a geothermal setup. - Full Article Source

07/26/13 - Rippling clouds that are actually gravity waves
KeelyNet Astronauts aboard the International Space Station have taken a photograph of gravity waves - an atmospheric phenomenon that is impossible to see from Earth.

The image makes the clouds look as if they are rippling, an occurrence known as gravity waves, which shows the effect of gravity on the earth's weather system.

These particular gravity waves were over Lake Superior, one of the great lakes of Northern America, Southern Ontario, Canada and to the southwest of Pukaskwa National Park.

Gravity waves are produced when moisture-laden air encounters imbalances in air density, such as when cool air flows over warmer air.

This can make the flowing air oscillate up and down as it moves, which in turn causes clouds to condense as the air rises. They then cool and evaporate away as the air sinks and warms, which produces the distinctive parallel bands of clouds.

Nasa said the orientation of the cloud bands in this image suggests that air flowing off of the land surfaces to the north is interacting with moist, stable air over the lake surface, creating gravity waves - Full Article Source

07/26/13 - Carbon Dioxide '400 times as much power as the Hoover Dam'
Their system involves mixing water and other liquids with combustion gas comprising a high concentration of carbon dioxide that are pumped between two membranes to produce an electric current.

The scientists said that over 12 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide is created annually from coal, oil and natural gas power stations, while home and commercial heating systems generate another 11 billion tonnes of the greenhouse gas.

It will not remove carbon dioxide from the earth's atmosphere like carbon capture and storage techniques are intended to do.

Dr Hamelers told NBC News: 'You use the energy that is now wasted. 'You bring it in and get the extra energy out, but you cannot sequester it.'

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is the process of collecting carbon dioxide from places like power plants and taking it to a storage site where it is buried in an underground geological formation, instead of entering the atmosphere.

CCS has the potential to curb the contribution of fossil fuel emissions to global warming but although the method has been commercially used, the long-term storage of carbon dioxide is still a relatively new concept.

There is also some way to go before the technology developed by the Dutch scientists can be used on a massive scale as it is currently a proof-of-concept technique.

Currently the process uses more energy than it produces but membrane-based processes that are proposed by the scientists to use in the 'real' technology use less energy. - Full Article Source

07/26/13 - Blue Glowing Death wave

KeelyNet

British scientists have captured death spreading like a wave through the body of a worm, by studying the blue fluorescence that travels cell-to-cell until the whole organism is dead.

Researchers from the Wellcome Trust and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) likened the spread of the blue glow travelling through the worm's body to that of the Grim Reaper, stalking death.

They believe that the research could eventually prove to be a useful model to understanding death in people and perhaps even lead to an increase in life expectancy.

When individual cells die, they trigger a chemical chain reaction that leads to the breakdown of cell components and a build-up of molecular debris.

The molecular mechanisms of this are reasonably well understood at a cellular level but we know much less about how death spreads throughout an organism at the end of its life.

In worms, the spread of death can be seen easily under a microscope as a wave of blue fluorescence travelling through the gut of the worm.

The study, published in PLoS Biology, reveals that this fluorescence is caused by a cell death pathway called necrosis and its spread throughout the organism is dependent on calcium signalling.

Professor David Gems from the Institute of Health Ageing at University College London, who led the study, said: 'We’ve identified a chemical pathway of self-destruction that propagate cell death in worms, which we see as this glowing blue fluorescence travelling through the body.

'It’s like a blue Grim Reaper, tracking death as it spreads throughout the organism until all life is extinguished.

'We found that when we blocked this pathway, we could delay death induced by a stress such as infection, but we couldn’t slow death from old age.

'This suggests that ageing causes death by a number of processes acting in parallel.'

The mechanisms involved are similar to those that are active in mammals, confirming that the worm can provide a useful model to understand cell death in people.

The source of the blue fluorescence was previously thought to be a substance called lipofuscin, which emits light of a similar colour and has been linked to ageing because it accumulates with increasing molecular damage.

However, scientists now think another molecule called anthranilic acid is the source of the blue hue and the study shows that lipofuscin is not involved.

Professor Gems said: 'Together the findings cast doubt on the theory that ageing is simply a consequence of an accumulation of molecular damage.

'We need to focus on the biological events that occur during ageing and death to properly understand how we might be able to interrupt these processes.' - Full Article Source


07/26/13 - In Support of Vibrational Healing
And of course there is the incredible body of work left by Royal Rife, Dinshah Ghadiali, Cymatics and George Lakhovsky all of which use frequencies to heal and cure the body. I won't go into detail about those here because a simple search will reveal much information on the web. All I'd advise is you take some of it with a big block of salt especially if they are selling something. Try to find information FROM THE TIME, written by the inventor himself, not all these new age, self-promoting additions that have no basis in fact.

KeelyNet You might remember George Van Tassels' 'Integratron.' He was an early UFO contactee and claimed they showed him how to build a machine that would heal and rejuvenate people.

Basically a giant low energy Tesla coil which produces no observable biological effects to my knowledge.

"The Integratron is the creation of George Van Tassel, and is based on the design of Moses’ Tabernacle, the writings of Nikola Tesla and telepathic directions from extraterrestrials.

This one-of-a-kind building is a 38-foot high, 55-foot diameter, non-metallic structure originally designed by Van Tassel as a rejuvenation and time machine.

Today, it is the only all-wood, acoustically perfect sound chamber in the U.S."

KeelyNet The scifi movie 'Cocoon' had an interesting approach. Aliens charging water in a swimming pool...literally STRUCTURING water to emit healing energies.

The geode-like cocoons holding their millenia old companions were placed in the water to absorb this healing energy and rejuvenate them.

Apparently water can be structured to produce the most complex geometric forms.

KeelyNet What is Structured Water? - "Research reveals that water also has a liquid crystalline form. Although the molecules remain mobile in liquid crystalline water, they move together, like a school of fish swimming in the sea. This is structured water—also referred to as organized water, hexagonal water, and liquid crystalline water.

Liquid crystals are a special phase of matter. Like solid crystals, they can transmit signals; the repeating pattern provides an efficient pathway for the smooth flow of energetic information. Liquid crystals are flexible and many times more responsive than solid crystals.

Structured water flash frozen into snowflakes would become crystalline resonator arrays to further intensify and amplify the normally weak force to possibly produce useful effects. - Full Article Source

07/26/13 - Stimulating proteins with sound
A few years ago, a French friend sent me information about a researcher working on 'protein melodies.' As I recall, he had derived the resonant frequencies for over 600 proteins in both plants and in the body. Using these melodies he could stimulate the proteins and enzymes into over production to produce more in the stimulated area.

KeelyNetOne of the most fascinating was the melody for collagen. Collagen is the protein that makes up connective tissues such as tendons and ligaments. A distinctive feature of collagen is the regular arrangement of amino acids in each of the three chains of these collagen subunits. The sequence often follows the pattern Gly-Pro-X or Gly-X-Hyp, where X may be any of various other amino acid residues.

When sonically applied to the lips, they caused rapid excretion of collagen to fill out the lips like Angelina Jolie, without the need for collagen injections. This technique could be used anywhere in the body and had no side effects other than from over abuse.

KeelyNetUsing the correct protein melody for insulin, this scientist could produce extra insulin in the body using only energetic means. Insulin is a protein in the human body that plays a major role in decreasing the levels of glucose in the blood and regulating the metabolism of glucose. Insulin is a hormone central to regulating carbohydrate and fat metabolism in the body. Insulin causes cells in the liver, muscle, and fat tissue to take up glucose from the blood, storing it as glycogen in the liver and muscle. When control of insulin levels fails, diabetes mellitus will result. As a consequence, insulin is used medically to treat some forms of diabetes mellitus.

I mentioned my friend told me this scientist had found over 600 different protein melodies which affected all kinds of body and plant functions. He could produce giant or tiny plants and modify taste, texture and a variety of effects solely by using various protein melodies.

Of course everyone who knows about this wants a copy of those 600 frequencies on CD but the scientist knows how dangerous this can be, so refuses to sell or pass it around. His fear is many people might damage or kill themselves or others by over stimulating various proteins in the body. And he's right, humans tend to overdo it. But still, I would love to have those frequencies to experiment with, even if only on plants.

Imagine a method to electronically stimulate insulin production for treatment of diabetes! - Full Article Source

"Reuters reports that under a cost-saving plan by the US Postal Service, millions of Americans accustomed to getting their mail delivered to their doors will have to trek to the curb and residents of new homes will use neighborhood mailbox clusters.

'Converting delivery away from door delivery to either curb line or centralized delivery would enable the Postal Service to provide service to more customers in less time,' says Postal Service spokeswoman Sue Brennan.

More than 30 million American homes get door-to-door delivery and another 50 million get their mail dropped at their curbside mailboxes. But the Post Service, which is buckling under massive financial losses, sees savings in centralized mail delivery.

Door-to-door delivery costs the Postal Service about $353 per address each year while curbside delivery costs $224, and cluster boxes cost $160 per address. But unions say it's a bad idea to end delivery to doorsteps and will be disruptive for the elderly and disabled.

July is usually the warmest month in the area, but temperatures were 1 to 3 degrees Celsius above average this year. The shallow lake you see at the pole is made of meltwater sitting on top of a layer of ice, according to the observatory.

Arctic sea ice has become a noticeable victim of climate change.

The area of ice cover expands and contracts every year with the change in seasons, but last summer's minimum extent was the lowest on record and this year's maximum winter coverage was the sixth-lowest since satellite observations began in the 1970s. - Full Article Source


07/26/13 - Neuroscientists plant false memories in the brain
KeelyNet Neuroscientists have long sought the location of these memory traces, also called engrams. In the pair of studies, Tonegawa and colleagues at MIT’s Picower Institute for Learning and Memory showed that they could identify the cells that make up part of an engram for a specific memory and reactivate it using a technology called optogenetics.

Lead authors of the paper are graduate student Steve Ramirez and research scientist Xu Liu. Other authors are technical assistant Pei-Ann Lin, research scientist Junghyup Suh, and postdocs Michele Pignatelli, Roger Redondo and Tomas Ryan.

Seeking the engram - Episodic memories — memories of experiences — are made of associations of several elements, including objects, space and time. These associations are encoded by chemical and physical changes in neurons, as well as by modifications to the connections between the neurons.

Where these engrams reside in the brain has been a longstanding question in neuroscience. “Is the information spread out in various parts of the brain, or is there a particular area of the brain in which this type of memory is stored? This has been a very fundamental question,” Tonegawa says.

For this pair of studies, the researchers engineered mouse hippocampal cells to express the gene for channelrhodopsin, a protein that activates neurons when stimulated by light. They also modified the gene so that channelrhodopsin would be produced whenever the c-fos gene, necessary for memory formation, was turned on.

In last year’s study, the researchers conditioned these mice to fear a particular chamber by delivering a mild electric shock. As this memory was formed, the c-fos gene was turned on, along with the engineered channelrhodopsin gene. This way, cells encoding the memory trace were “labeled” with light-sensitive proteins.

The next day, when the mice were put in a different chamber they had never seen before, they behaved normally. However, when the researchers delivered a pulse of light to the hippocampus, stimulating the memory cells labeled with channelrhodopsin, the mice froze in fear as the previous day’s memory was reactivated.

“Compared to most studies that treat the brain as a black box while trying to access it from the outside in, this is like we are trying to study the brain from the inside out,” Liu says. “The technology we developed for this study allows us to fine-dissect and even potentially tinker with the memory process by directly controlling the brain cells.”

Incepting false memories - That is exactly what the researchers did in the new study — exploring whether they could use these reactivated engrams to plant false memories in the mice’s brains.

First, the researchers placed the mice in a novel chamber, A, but did not deliver any shocks. As the mice explored this chamber, their memory cells were labeled with channelrhodopsin. The next day, the mice were placed in a second, very different chamber, B. After a while, the mice were given a mild foot shock. At the same instant, the researchers used light to activate the cells encoding the memory of chamber A.

On the third day, the mice were placed back into chamber A, where they now froze in fear, even though they had never been shocked there. A false memory had been incepted: The mice feared the memory of chamber A because when the shock was given in chamber B, they were reliving the memory of being in chamber A.

Moreover, that false memory appeared to compete with a genuine memory of chamber B, the researchers found. These mice also froze when placed in chamber B, but not as much as mice that had received a shock in chamber B without having the chamber A memory activated.

The researchers then showed that immediately after recall of the false memory, levels of neural activity were also elevated in the amygdala, a fear center in the brain that receives memory information from the hippocampus, just as they are when the mice recall a genuine memory. - Full Article Source

07/26/13 - The Rabbit, Chlorophyll and the Vril Rod
Years ago, a friend told me of a group of experimenters who lived in Arizona near the Superstition Mountains. They had built electronic equipment that took the form of advanced radionic machines which could do incredible things. This group was healing all kinds of diseases and physical problems until the AMA got wind of there many cures.

That was when they chose to go dark and setup a church which had an antenna like radiator that looked like a fancy chandelier and which was suspended from the ceiling in front of the pulpit. Below this 'chandelier' was a circular pattern about 5 foot in diameter.

People seeking relief for their health problems were instructed to stand, kneel or lay on this circle while the beams from the chandelier antenna bathed their body to correct their condition. They were told to meditate and ask for healing but it was the machine which did the healing.

KeelyNet My friend said he spent as much time with them as he could so one evening they were sitting on the back porch looking out into the desert. His friends told him just as their technology could heal it could also be used to maim, incapacitate or kill. One of the experimenters went inside and came back with what looked like a hollow rod. As they sat drinking iced tea, a large jackrabbit could be seen about 50 yards away, hopping then resting to look for food or check for predators.

As an example of the destructive forces they could produce, all were instructed to watch the jackrabbit. The man with the hollow rod aimed it in the path of the rabbit. When the rabbit hopped into the invisible beam from the rod, it instantly fell to the ground. No sound, no smoke, no projectile. One of the younger men went out and brought the rabbit back. They took it to an outside table and opened it up with a sharp steak knife.

The most remarkable thing was there was NO BLOOD anywhere inside the rabbit. Not in any organ, any vein or artery, not even in the opened up heart. There was however this clear fluid that was thicker than water...like clear blood.

When my friend asked what did the hollow rod do, he was told it instantly transmuted the iron in the blood to magnesium, thus depriving the body of oxygen and electricity to produce instant, painless death.

My friend Henry told me all the old men died off and their house was for many years sealed up but has long since had all the material and equipment sent to the dump and the house torn down making room for a new housing development. As far as he knew, there were no research notes or equipment that survived.

At the time Henry told me this story, I took it with a grain of salt, until I found many reports that the iron in human blood, when substituted with magnesium, turns the blood into CLEAR chlorophyll! I never forgot it.

Plants Grow “BLOOD” for Human Health (Apr, 1933) - Physicians have for many years been advising people to eat more green vegetables. “Old stuff!” you say? Yes, comparatively. But the green foods, such as lettuce leaves, spinach, kales and others, contain vitamins, needed by the human laboratory of the body. Blood and the green of the leaves (chlorophyll) are practically identical. Chlorophyll contains carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and magnesium.

KeelyNetThe only chemical difference in the organic construction of the chlorophyll in plants and haemoglobin in blood is that the former contains magnesium while the latter contains iron.

German chemists taking their chlorophyll product that they derived from the leaves of growing plants, made them into pills which they gave to patients in clinics and hospitals, keeping a minute medical record of results.

These pills, which may well be called “concentrated sunshine,” produced amazing results. The facts, as recorded in the unemotional, matter-of-fact statements of the German scientists, would show that these chlorophyll pills reduced high blood pressure, eliminated anemia, made weak men strong, cured digestive troubles, and seemed to be in fact, a pill of youth.

Once in the digestive stream chlorophyll immediately enriches the blood. The red blood cells immediately increase in number while their haemoglobin content rises. (Hemin, of the blood, and chlorophyll, are practically identical.) The blood thus enriched and reinforced with new life is able to bring about amazing recoveries.

The eating of green foods is taking chlorophyll into the body’s chemical laboratory, but the taking of a concentrated form is merely a short cut in giving the body a tremendous amount of it and the reaction is positive. The sunshine that the plant caught and benefited by is thus passed on in the form of blood-life for the human being. - Full Article Source

07/26/13 - The Universe Is A Giant Brain

KeelyNet

According to a study published in Nature's Scientific Reports, the universe may be growing in the same way as a giant brain - with the electrical firing between brain cells 'mirrored' by the shape of expanding galaxies.

The results of a computer simulation suggest that "natural growth dynamics" - the way that systems evolve - are the same for different kinds of networks - whether its the internet, the human brain or the universe as a whole.

A co-author of the study, Dmitri Krioukov from the University of California San Diego, said that while such systems appear very different, they have evolved in very similar ways.

The result, they argue, is that the universe really does grow like a brain.

The team's simulation modeled the very early life of the universe, shortly after the big bang, by looking at how quantum units of space-time smaller than subatomic particles 'networked' with each other as the universe grew.

They found that the simulation mirrored that of other networks. Some links between similar nodes resulted in limited growth, while others acted as junctions for many different connections.

For instance, some connections are limited and similar - like a person who likes sports visiting many other sports websites - and some are major and connect to many other parts of the network, like Google and Yahoo.

No, it doesn't quite mean that the universe is 'thinking' - but as has been previously pointed out online, it might just mean there's more similarity between the very small and the very large than first appearances suggest. - Full Article Source

07/22/13 - 50 plus MPG cars not allowed in the U.S. or Canada
The following report is intended to be a wake up call for the American people. There are no tricks here, such as quoting imperial gallons, referencing tiny cars, electric cars, or even hybrids. These cars are straight up 50 plus mile per gallon winners which are banned for sale in the U.S., and if you think you can bring one home, think again, in America such cars are allowed a 30 day visit upon crossing the border, after which if they are found on American soil they get impounded and if not immediately shipped out of the country thereafter they are destroyed.

The U.S. government quotes as a reason for such behavior that said cars are "not up to American standards". But what about Europe, where they are allowed? European standards are every bit as high as American standards, (BMW vs Ford) but with a simple quote from the government, American people will turn their nose and say if it is not up to American standards we do not want it here. But under all of this is a damning reality - there is nothing wrong with these cars other than the fact that they are too efficient and will reduce corporate profits as a result.

KeelyNet With a combined mileage of 52.8 U.S. mpg and an even higher highway mpg, the Urban Cruiser SUV crossover by Toyota, which is a European version of the Scion XD features front wheel drive for the ultimate mileage and if you are willing to sacrifice and get the 4 wheel drive version, you will suffer in life with a combined mileage of 48 mpg. Highway mileage is considerably higher which will help make any vacations enjoyable. Al Gore is not happy with this one, so you can forget about it in the U.S.

KeelyNet With a highway mileage of 56 mpg per U.S. gallon, the Nissan Qashqai SUV crossover would be sure to make any carbon tax junkie shiver with dread. Fortunately the American version delivers only 26 highway mpg (22 combined) so the local carbon tax tyrant can rest easy. I would like to ask HOW ON EARTH the difference could be so huge. True, the ultimate mileage is compliments of a diesel engine but that cannot account for such a severe mileage cut. The American version has got to be intentionally detuned to deliver horrific comparable mileage. And that is not the end of it, on E85 fuel which is rapidly being forced on the American people, the mileage drops to an amazingly low 18/23which is not only good for the oil companies, it´s damaging to the U.S. economy which would be better off having that money go toward house payments and durable goods. This much of a difference in efficiency between U.S. and European versions is not happening by accident, it can only be intentional economic sabotage.

KeelyNet With 78.5 imperial miles per gallon highway, the 1.6 blue motion TDI Volkswagen Passat wagon is definitely forbidden in America, where in the smaller American gallons it would deliver a carbon tax blood curdling 65.4 highway mpg. I never laughed at the 70 mpg carburetor even as a kid. How would that do you on vacation? And even city fuel mileage comes in at over 50 miles per U.S. gallon. Ever see National Lampoons vacation? The car is THAT big. They are flat out banned in America, and if you manage to get one into the states, you will be allowed 30 days to leave with it or it will be impounded and crushed. I looked into this topic, and when it comes to cars like this they really are banned even if purchased elsewhere and really will get taken by the government if you do not get them out of the country on time. Take a look at what an American who rented one of these in Europe had to say when he got home and could not buy one even though they are manufactured in America and shipped out of the country.

Americans need to stand up and demand the government to stop censoring search results to prevent Americans from learning the truth elsewhere. Americans need to stand up and call the government on the carpet over the lies that "40 MPG can be achieved in the future" all the while even American car companies such as Ford are producing 65 plus MPG cars for sale on foreign markets right on American soil. It is time to end the lie, and tell these scamming frauds in our government to STICK IT.

If there is any "conspiracy" you could use to wake Americans up, it is this one, these cars are real and not just a bunch of blurry UFO photos. You cannot let the truth slip away on the basis of "the cars not being up to American standards", especially when those standards are forced to include having always on cell connections to every car that can be used to commit murder when the government deems fit as they did in the case of Hastings.

There is nothing better about American "improvements" or "standards" that is in any way more beneficial to the people than the European counterparts, and forcing every car to give the government the option to murder via wire is an "improvement" every American can certainly live without. I'd take a fuel economy improvement over that ANY DAY. (Thanks to Ken for the headsup! - JWD) - Full Article Source

07/22/13 - The Function of the Clem Engine (water hammer effect)

KeelyNet

The first newspaper article about the Clem Engine was published on 2. June 1972. It has been more than 40 years and not one working prototype has been developed since.

Because of the simplicity und great power of this engine, it could change our dependence for oil, gas and electricity and therefore could be a great threat to our current wealth structure. I believe that this is why the people who control this world are trying to prevent this technology to get public. And what is the best way to prevent something like the Clem Engine to be reinvented again?

The function of the Clem engine is always associated with the so called Truncated Conical Drag Pump. The patent for this pump was issued October 10, 1972 under the patent # US3697190.

The first newspaper article about the Clem Engine was published on June 2, 1972. This was more than 4 months before the patent of the pump was issued. I believe that Richard Clem must have invented and build the car a long time before the newspaper article was published. For this reason alone I do not belief that Richard Clem even knew about this so called Truncated Conical Drag Pump and the function of his Clem engine has nothing to do with this pump patent.

What do we know for sure about the Clem engine? The following information we can take from the June 2, 1972 published newspaper article:

- it used eight gallons (about 30 liters) of vegetable oil
- it runs at a temperature of about 300°F or about 140°C
- it uses a 12 volt battery, which Clem said "is used only to start the engine. Once started you can throw the battery away
- it main components are a seven stage pump and a “converter”.
- The pump, as he described it, is used to move the oil, under pressure, from a storage area to the converter from where the energy is converted into enough power to turn the motor, move the oil back to the storage area and power the pump, which in turn continues the cycle.
- One hint as to the contents of the converter is "it acts like a turbine but isn't a turbine" in the normal sense of the word.

Based on that information we know that:

- The engine must be a sort of hydraulic engine
- the “converter” acts like a turbine
- the pump is used to move the oil to the converter

My personal belief is that he worked on an improvement of a Hydraulic Ram Pump.

The axle, which includes the pressure vessel and the centrifugal pipes plus the check valves would be the only rotating parts of the engine. After bringing this engine to a speed of about 2000 rpm (with an external E-motor or otherwise), the fluid which is pumped into the hollow axle will then be centrifuged outward through the centrifugal pipes.

When the valve hole of the centrifugal pipe passes the holes of the stator plate, an “opening” in the centrifugal pipe is created and the fluid can escape through the hole of the stator plate. When the centrifugal pipe passes the stator plate hole, the valve is “closed” and a water hammer inside the centrifugal pipe is created.

This water hammer will push some fluid, under great pressure created by the water hammer, into the pressure vessel. A check valve at the end of the centrifugal pipe will prevent the fluid inside the pressure vessel to flow back into the centrifugal pipe. Depending on the set-up this happens about 600 times per second.

The high pressure created inside the pressure vessel will force the fluid out of the jets and keep the motor running.

07/22/13 - Tommey's ongoing Clem engine experiments
Tommey wrote:

Hi Jerry,

I have not stopped working on the Clem engine, this is a major break though running over 3600 rpm's to generate 500 watts.


- Tommey

(I want to quote something that people need to realize when dealing with overunity phenomena, I've written it many times and it is CLEAR that Richard Clem figured out a way to tap into non-linear phenomena which resulted in his 'tornado-in-a-box engine;

The rate at which viscosity changes
with respect to temperature is NON-LINEAR!

Don't get confused by thinking just because the Math doesn't back it up YET, that you fail to even try to build it based on that.

"Cavitation-Ignition Bubble Combustion (CIBC) engine - The basic idea behind this new engine is simple but revolutionary: it utilizes a small air bubble in a fluid (the fuel) as the combustion chamber to compress, ignite, and capture the energy (heat) released by the combustion of the fuel-air contents of the bubble.

The fuel also happens to be the working fluid, which drives the turbine blades to extract power. The CIBC engine can run on just about any liquid hydrocarbon fuel, including plant, mineral, or recycled oils."

This page provides a kind of timeline about the engine development according to Jim Ray who knew and worked with Clem;

Richard Clem had claimed that it was perpetual motion but since there is no such thing Jim felt there was some unknown factor in the equation of the Laws of Physics. The company has now postulated a theory complying with these equations and Laws of Physics as to what made Richard's engine run without air induction and/or combustion of any given amount or type of fuel.

Please see the paper by Dr. John Scott and Jim Ray entitled; "Dissociation of the Molecules in the Vapor of a Bubble Produced in the Process of Cavitation".

According to Jim, the 3rd engine was the last one that worked and that was the one tested by Bendix, after starting with an electric motor to achieve the heat and rpms, this engine ran STANDALONE for over 7 days and produced between 325-350hp as measured with a dynamometer by Bendix scientists and engineers.

So if Clem truly was threatened and did actually destroy his engine, it would have been the 3rd because with the 4th engine he was never able to duplicate his earlier successes before his 'untimely' death. - JWD) - Full Article Source


07/22/13 - Colorado Town Considers Drone-Hunting Licenses
KeelyNet "The town of Deer Trail, Colorado (population approximately 550) will be voting next month on whether to offer licenses for drone hunting.

Furthermore, a bounty of $100 for each drone shot down will be offered (upon offering proof that the drone was potentially owned by the U.S. government).

Is this just a fun gimmick, or a serious commentary on an increasingly surveillance based society?"

"We do not want drones in town," said Steel. "They fly in town, they get shot down."

Even though it's against the law to destroy federal property, Steel's proposed ordinance outlines weapons, ammunition, rules of engagement, techniques, and bounties for drone hunting.

The ordinates states, "The Town of Deer Trail shall issue a reward of $100 to any shooter who presents a valid hunting license and the following identifiable parts of an unmanned aerial vehicle whose markings and configuration are consistent with those used on any similar craft known to be owned or operated by the United States federal government."

7NEWS Reporter Amanda Kost asked Steel, "Have you ever seen a drone flying over your town?"

"No," Steel responded. "This is a very symbolic ordinance. Basically, I do not believe in the idea of a surveillance society, and I believe we are heading that way."

If passed by the town board, Deer Trail would charge $25 for drone hunting licenses, valid for one year.

"They'll sell like hot cakes, and it would be a real drone hunting license," said Steel, "It could be a huge moneymaker for the town."

Deer Trail resident, David Boyd, is also one of seven votes on the town board.

"Even if a tiny percentage of people get online (for a) drone license, that's cool. That's a lot of money to a small town like us,"said Boyd. "Could be known for it as well, which probably might be a mixed blessing, but what the heck?"

The board will consider the drone hunting ordinance on Aug. 6.

"I'm leaning towards yes," said Boyd. "I'm good with passing it as long as it's safe."

The ordinance specifies that weapons used for engagement of unmanned aerial vehicles would be limited to, "any shotgun, 12 gauge or smaller, having a barrel length of 18 inches or greater." Drone hunting licenses would be issued without a background investigation, and on an anonymous basis. Applicants would have to be at least 21 years old and be able to, "read and understand English."

07/22/13 - Hispanics fuel U.S. population growth

KeelyNet

The U.S. Hispanic population has surged 43%.

The Census Bureau—in its first nationwide demographic tally from the 2010 headcount—said Thursday the U.S. Hispanic population surged 43%, rising to 50.5 million in 2010 from 35.3 million in 2000. Latinos now constitute 16% of the nation’s total population of 308.7 million.

The Census Bureau has estimated that the non-Hispanic white population would drop to 50.8% of the total population by 2040—then drop to 46.3% by 2050. This demographic transformation—Latinos now account for about one in four people under age 18—holds the potential to shift the political dynamics across the country.

Nearly 92% of the nation’s population growth over the past decade—25.1 million people—came from minorities of all types, including those who identified themselves as mixed race. Nine million people, or 3%, reported more than one race.

In addition to the 16.3% of people who identified as Hispanic or Latino of any race, 63.7% identified as white; 12.2% identified as black; 4.7% as Asian; and 0.7% as American Indians or Alaska Natives. Other races made up the rest.

States in the South and West posted the sharpest growth rates during the decade, with the population of the West surpassing the Midwest for the first time. More than half the U.S. lived in the 10 most populous states, with about a quarter in the three largest states: California, Texas and New York.

The Census Bureau said the population continued shifting toward the South and West, which together accounted for 84% of the decade’s population growth. The nation’s center of population—the balancing point if all 308 million people weighed the same—moved about 25 miles south to just outside Plato, Mo. In 1790, the year of the first Census, the population center was near Chestertown, Md.

The Census data also showed blacks moving out of big cities in the North and into suburbs and the South, marking more black-white integration. - Full Article Source

07/22/13 - $25 gadget lets hackers seize control of a car
Clarke cited research, carried out for the US National Academy of Sciences, showing that "connected cars" – equipped with built-in cellular technology used by dashboard apps and engine-monitoring software – can be hacked remotely. But proof that it could be done in practice has been lacking.

That looks set to change on 27 July, when Spanish engineers Javier Vázquez Vidal and Alberto Garcia Illera will give a demonstration at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. They have built a $25 device that lets them bypass security in a car's electronic control unit.

The brains of a modern car, the ECU is a computer that controls engine power, transmission and braking. Mechanics can diagnose faults by plugging a laptop into it via standard wired connectors such as the CAN bus. Alternatively, remote diagnostics and software updates can take place over a cellular network, as happens with services such as General Motors' OnStar and Mercedes-Benz's Mbrace.

Vázquez Vidal and Garcia Illera will show how their device – which they claim uses a $1 chip to break encryption – can read from and write data to the flash memory of commonly used ECUs, made by Bosch of Germany. In this way, they can get more horsepower out of a car, or tell it to burn less fuel. "And it would take no time to gain total control over a vehicle – deploying an airbag, activating the brakes, or immobilising a car at any moment," says Vázquez Vidal.

How they have done this is unclear. "My best guess is that they have managed to put the ECU into an unencrypted test state, possibly by playing around with power-up sequences," says Peter Highton, a senior engineer with Freescale Semiconductor in Aylesbury, UK, which makes ECU microchips for racing cars as well as ordinary vehicles.

For security, connected cars should use encryption, but Highton says carmakers are only just coming to terms with it. "Until as recently as five years ago, data on the CAN bus of most cars was unencrypted, and so could be intercepted and altered." - Full Article Source

07/22/13 - "Smart Plates" Could Betray California Drivers' Privacy
An anonymous reader writes with news that a California Senate Bill would authorize the state's Department of Motor Vehicles to test a digital registration plate system patented by San Francisco-based Smart Plate Mobile on as many as 160,000 cars.

An article on the proposed trial in the Modesto Bee says, in part: "The state hopes the technology will improve efficiencies in vehicle registrations and potentially save the DMV some of the $20 million spent each year in postage for renewals.

Privacy advocates say the approach could leave motorists vulnerable to government surveillance by undoing a Supreme Court ruling that required authorities to obtain search warrants before using vehicle tracking devices.

'It means everyone driving in California will have their location accessible to the government at any time,' said Nate Cardozo, a staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

In 2010, the Legislature considered a similar bill supported by Smart Plate Mobile, with the noted addition of allowing for scrolling advertisements when a vehicle comes to a stop for four seconds or longer."

The digital plate is essentially a 12-inch-by-6-inch computer screen with "California" in red across the top and license numbers in blue.

The law would create a three-year program run by the DMV to test the digital plates on California roadways. Lites said the pilot program would likely focus on vehicle fleets owned by large private companies. These companies often have to spend an inordinate amount of time managing the various registration renewals of fleet vehicles to ensure they are up to date.

"When you have 400 to 500 vehicles, you can imagine having one person parked at a DMV office every day processing registrations," Hueso said. "The DMV would prefer not having that person in their office every day and just send the registration electronically." - Full Article Source

07/22/13 - Research Suggests Mars Once Had a Thick Atmosphere

KeelyNet

"At one time, Mars had a thick, protective atmosphere — possibly even cushier than Earth's — but the bubble of gases mostly dissipated about 4 billion years ago and has never been replenished, new research shows.

The findings come from NASA's Mars rover Curiosity, which has been moonlighting as an atmospheric probe as it scours planet's surface for habitats that could have supported ancient microbial life.

'On Earth, our magnetic field protects us, it shields us from the solar wind particles. Without Earth's magnetic field, we would have no atmosphere and there would be no life on this planet. Everything would be wiped out — especially when you go back 4 billion years.

The solar wind was at least 100 times stronger then than it is today. It was a young sun with a very intense radiation,' Chris Webster, manager of the Planetary Sciences Instruments Office at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., told Discovery News.

Unfortunately for Mars, the last 4 billion years have not been kind."

(There are two signs we ain't from here...man is the only warm blooded mammal on this planet without even a vestigial penile bone and if you put a human in a cave so they get no sunlight and can control the artificial lighting, over a 6 month period they will revert to a nearly 25 hour day.

"We showed that my sleep/wake cycle was not twenty-four hours, like people have on the surface on the earth, but slightly longer—about twenty-four hours and thirty minutes.

But the important thing is that we proved that there was an internal clock independent of the natural terrestrial day/night cycle."

07/22/13 - TSA Orders Searches of Valet Parked Car At Airport
KeelyNet "Laurie Iacuzza walked to her waiting car at the Greater Rochester International Airport after returning from a trip and that's when she found it — a notice saying her car was inspected after she left for her flight. She said, 'I was furious. They never mentioned it to me when I booked the valet or when I picked up the car or when I dropped it off.' Iacuzza's car was inspected by valet attendants on orders from the TSA."

We found out it happened to her because she valet parked her car. Those are the only cars that get inspected. So if security feels it is necessary to search some cars in the name of safety, why not search all of them?

Berkeley Brean asked, “Are the cars in the short term lots and long term lots getting searched as well?”

John McCaffery, TSA, said, “No, those vehicles that are in the garage, short term long term parking, even if they carry pretty large amounts of explosives, they would not cause damage to the front of the airport. But for those who use the valet, the car could be there for a half hour or an hour so there is a vulnerability.”

We also noticed a large sign that alerts customers that their vehicle will be inspected. The sign is on the kiosk window. Iacuzza says it was not there when she dropped off her car. “I think the public should be aware of the fact that if their car is going to be searched, they should be informed of it.”

Iacuzza said she doesn't mind the security measure. She just wants to be told if her car is getting searched.

News10NBC asked the owner of the company that runs the valet parking when they put up the sign but he wouldn't answer.

TSA says this is part of its overall security plan and that it's a proactive move. The attendants said they've only been doing it for about a month. - Full Article Source


07/22/13 - Collision Between Water and Energy Is Underway, and Worsening

KeelyNet

"This article is an eye opening perspective on another side effect of power generation — water usage: 'More than 40 percent of fresh water used in the United States is withdrawn to cool power plants.

Renewable energy generally uses far less water, but there are glaring exceptions, such as geothermal and concentrating solar.'

The article also mentions that power plants have to shut down if the incoming water is too warm to cool the plant.

'Also, even though some newer plants might use far less water, they could find that there’s far less water available as water temperatures go up and water flows go down.

Another study found that nearly half of 423 U.S. plants were at risk of lower power output during droughts because their intake pipes for water were less than 3 meters below the surface.'" - Full Article Source

07/22/13 - How America's Police Forces Became Militarized

KeelyNet

"An awakening piece in the Wall Street Journal paints a grim picture of how America's police departments went from community officers walking the beat to full-on, militarized SWAT operations breaking down the doors of non-violent offenders. From the article: 'In the 1970s, there were just a few hundred [raids] a year; by the early 1980s, there were some 3,000 a year. In 2005, there were approximately 50,000 raids.'

It goes on to detail examples of aggressive, SWAT-style raids on non-violent offenders and how many have ended in unnecessary deaths. Last year, after a Utah man's home was raided for having 16 small marijuana plants, nearly 300 bullets in total were fired (most of them by the police) in the ensuing gunfight, the homeowner believing he was a victim of a home invasion by criminals.

The U.S. military veteran later hanged himself in his jail cell while the prosecution sought the death sentence for the murder of one officer he believed to be an criminal assailant.

In 2006, a man in Virginia was shot and killed after an undercover detective overheard the man discussing bets on college football games with buddies in a bar. The 38-year-old optometrist had no criminal record and no history of violence.

The reports range from incredulous to outrageous; from the raid on the Gibson guitar factory for violation of conservational law, to the infiltration of a bar where underage youth were believed to be drinking, to the Tibetan monks who were apprehended by police in full SWAT gear for overstaying their visas on a peace mission.

Then there's the one about the woman who was subject to a raid for failing to pay her student loan bills.

It's a small wonder why few respect police anymore.

SWAT-style raids aren't just for defense against similarly-armed criminals anymore; it's now a standard ops intimidation tactic. How much bloodshed will it take for America to realize such a disproportionate response is unwarranted and disastrous?" - Full Article Source

07/22/13 - The Vitamin Myth: Why We Think We Need Supplements
On October 10, 2011, researchers from the University of Minnesota found that women who took supplemental multivitamins died at rates higher than those who didn't. Two days later, researchers from the Cleveland Clinic found that men who took vitamin E had an increased risk of prostate cancer. "It's been a tough week for vitamins," said Carrie Gann of ABC News.

These findings weren't new. Seven previous studies had already shown that vitamins increased the risk of cancer and heart disease and shortened lives. Still, in 2012, more than half of all Americans took some form of vitamin supplements.

In 1970, Pauling published Vitamin C and the Common Cold, urging the public to take 3,000 milligrams of vitamin C every day (about 50 times the recommended daily allowance). Pauling believed that the common cold would soon be a historical footnote. "It will take decades to eradicate the common cold completely," he wrote, "but it can, I believe, be controlled entirely in the United States and some other countries within a few years. I look forward to witnessing this step toward a better world." Pauling's book became an instant best seller.

Paperback versions were printed in 1971 and 1973, and an expanded edition titled Vitamin C, the Common Cold and the Flu, published three years later, promised to ward off a predicted swine flu pandemic. Sales of vitamin C doubled, tripled, and quadrupled. Drugstores couldn't keep up with demand. By the mid-1970s, 50 million Americans were following Pauling's advice. Vitamin manufacturers called it "the Linus Pauling effect."

Although studies had failed to support him, Pauling believed that vitamins and supplements had one property that made them cure-alls, a property that continues to be hawked on everything from ketchup to pomegranate juice and that rivals words likenatural and organic for sales impact: antioxidant.

Antioxidation vs. oxidation has been billed as a contest between good and evil. The battle takes place in cellular organelles called mitochondria, where the body converts food to energy, a process that requires oxygen and so is called oxidation.

One consequence of oxidation is the generation of electron scavengers called free radicals (evil). Free radicals can damage DNA, cell membranes, and the lining of arteries; not surprisingly, they've been linked to aging, cancer, and heart disease. To neutralize free radicals, the body makes its own antioxidants (good).

Antioxidants can also be found in fruits and vegetables -- specifically, selenium, beta-carotene, and vitamins A, C, and E. Studies have shown that people who eat more fruits and vegetables have a lower incidence of cancer and heart disease and live longer. The logic is obvious: if fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants -- and people who eat lots of fruits and vegetables are healthier -- then people who take supplemental antioxidants should also be healthier.

In fact, they're less healthy.

On October 10, 2011, researchers from the University of Minnesota evaluated 39,000 older women and found that those who took supplemental multivitamins, magnesium, zinc, copper, and iron died at rates higher than those who didn't. They concluded, "Based on existing evidence, we see little justification for the general and widespread use of dietary supplements."

Two days later, on October 12, researchers from the Cleveland Clinic published the results of a study of 36,000 men who took vitamin E, selenium, both, or neither. They found that those receiving vitamin E had a 17 percent greater risk of prostate cancer. In response to the study, Steven Nissen, chairman of cardiology at the Cleveland Clinic, said, "The concept of multivitamins was sold to Americans by an eager nutraceutical industry to generate profits. There was never any scientific data supporting their usage." - Full Article Source

07/22/13 - 2 black teens kill white baby and not a peep out of press
KeelyNetHello. Don’t recognize me? That’s OK; I understand.

My name was Antonio West. I was the 13-month old child who was shot in the face at point blank range by two black teens, who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot.

I think my murder and my mommy’s wounding made the news for maybe a day, and then disappeared.

A Grand Jury of my mommy's peers from Brunswick, Georgia ruled the black teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty... too bad it was me who got the death sentence from my killers instead, because Mommy didn’t have the money they demanded.

See, my family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder wasn’t ruled a ‘hate crime’.

Oh, and President Obama didn’t take a single moment to acknowledge my murder. He couldn’t have any children who could possibly look like me - so why should he care?

I’m one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation's history, but the media didn’t care to cover the story of my being killed in cold blood.

There isn’t a white equivalent of Al Sharpton, because if there was he would be branded a ‘racist’. So no one’s rushing to Brunswick, Georgia to demonstrate and demand ‘justice’ for me. There’s no ‘White Panther’ party, either, to put a bounty on the lives of the two black teens who murdered me.

I have no voice, I have no representation, and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller - I no longer have my life.

Isn’t this a great country?

So while you’re out seeking ‘justice for Trayvon’, please remember to seek ‘justice’ for me. Tell your friends about me, tell your families, get tee-shirts with my face on them, and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon.

I won’t hold my breath...I don’t have to anymore. - Full Article Source

07/22/13 - Tor bounces packets of data across several continents to protect anonymity
KeelyNet Tor, which can be downloaded online, operates like a browser -- albeit slower because it is bouncing packets of data across several continents to protect anonymity. Journalists, whistleblowers, domestic abuse victims and dissidents living under repressive regimes use Tor to bypass government censors and prevent their online movements from being tracked. The U.S. State Department provides funding to the Tor Project to promote Internet freedom in other countries.

But the anonymizing software has also been used by whistleblowers to leak sensitive U.S. government secrets. Though it's unclear whether Snowden used Tor to disclose details about NSA surveillance to reporters, Wikileaks has reportedly used the software to protect whistleblowers.

"Tor's importance to Wikileaks cannot be understated," Wikileaks founder Julian Assange told Rolling Stone in 2010.

While some use Tor to traffic government secrets, criminals also use Tor to peddle drugs, guns, murder-for-hire services, hacking tools and child pornography outside the reach of law enforcement, according to security experts.

And yet, for the Tor network to be truly anonymous, it must protect all who are using it -- even those whose actions are condemned by the U.S. government, Christopher Soghoian, the principal technologist at the American Civil Liberties Union, told The Huffington Post.

Tor masks people's online activity by routing traffic through layers of servers, or "nodes," around the world. Its creators likened the encryption method to layers of an onion, giving the software its original name: "The Onion Router."

About 500,000 people use Tor every day, according to the Tor Network, which consists of a global network of more than 3,000 volunteers who host servers and promote freedom of speech and online privacy.

07/22/13 - Easy and safe way to make Stem cells
Researchers in China announced in a paper published in the journal Science on Thursday that they have developed an "easy and safe" way to make stem cells that could rekindle the great hope for growing tissue and organs from stem cells to treat a range of diseases.

By using a cocktail of small molecules to chemically reprogram the adult tissue cells they say they can make induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) as versatile as embryonic stem cells, without running the risk of dangerous mutations or cancer that occurs when gene insertion is used to make iPS cells.

Pluripotent stem cells are capable of giving rise to all the body's cell types - the stem cells in embryos are pluripotent. Inducing this embryonic-like state in adult cells is groundbreaking medical science.

The chemical insertion method of inducing cells used by these researchers is simpler and easier than the gene insertion approach, which, they note, has also tended to limit the clinical application of iPS cells.

How they did it - For their study, Deng Hongkui, a professor and stem-cell biologist at Peking University in Beijing, and colleagues, induced a pluripotent state in adult cells from mice using seven small-molecule compounds.

They started out by screening 10,000 small molecules. They were looking for a combination that would have the same effect as gene insertion.

They then had to work for another year fine-tuning the cocktail to achieve the hallmark of pluripotency and also to increase the efficiency of conversion.

They finally settled on a cocktail of seven small compounds, which they showed was able to convert 0.2% of the adult tissue cells into iPSCs, which is comparable to the gene insertion conversion rate.

They call the chemically induced pluripotent cells CiPSCs.

In their paper the team describes the many advantages of small molecules: they pass easily through cell walls, they don't affect the immune system, the are cost-effective, and they can easily be synthesized, preserved, and standardized.

"Moreover, their effects on inhibiting and activating the function of specific proteins are often reversible and can be finely tuned by varying the concentrations," note the authors.

Stem cells helped growth of heart, brain, liver, skin and muscle tissue - The researchers showed that the CiPSCs were pluripotent by introducing them into developing mouse embryos. As they grew and were born, the resulting mice showed signs that the CiPSCs had contributed to the formation of all tissue types, including heart, brain, liver, skin, and muscle. - Full Article Source

07/18/13 - New Thermocell Could Turn 'Waste Heat' Into Electricity
"Harvesting waste heat from power stations and even vehicle exhaust pipes could soon provide a valuable supply of electricity. A small team of Monash University researchers ... has developed an ionic liquid-based thermocell (abstract).

Thermocell technology is based on harnessing the thermal energy from the difference in temperature between two surfaces and converting that energy into electricity.

The new thermocell could be used to generate electricity from low grade steam in coal fired power stations at temperatures around 130C.

This would be implemented by having the steam pass over the outer surface of the hot electrode to keep it hot while the other electrode is air or water cooled."

"We have found that it can work at elevated temperatures typical of important heat sources, as opposed to water-based systems, which cannot operate at temperatures above 100 degrees Celsius," Professor MacFarlane said.

"The device offers the possibility of a cheap and flexible design suitable for harvesting waste heat in the 100- to 200-degrees Celsius range."

PhD student Theodore Abraham said that by using heat already produced in industrial processes that would otherwise be untapped, the thermocell is an attractive method of relieving some of the present reliance on fossil fuels.

"The major benefit of a thermocell is that it harnesses energy that is already readily out there; you're just harnessing energy that is otherwise lost to surroundings," Mr Abraham said. - Full Article Source

07/18/13 - Nanoparticle Exposure Could Disrupt Immune Cell Function
"A new study suggests there's more to nanoparticle toxicology than cell life and death. Although immune cells treated with iron oxide particles appeared healthy in standard toxicology tests, they struggled to perform one of their key jobs: engulfing pathogenic bacteria.

The researchers wonder if exposure to significant levels of the nanoparticles could lead to dysfunction in people's immune systems."

Studies in macrophages deficient in scavenger receptor A (SR-A) showed SR-A participates in cell uptake of both the ENPs and S. pneumonia and co-regulates the anti-inflammatory IL-10 pathway.

Thus, mechanisms for dysregulation of innate immunity exist by virtue that common receptor recognition pathways are used by some ENPs and pathogenic bacteria, although the extent of transcriptional reprogramming of macrophage function depends on the physicochemical properties of the ENP after internalization.

Our results also illustrate that biological effects of ENPs may be indirectly manifested only after challenging normal cell function.

Nanotoxicology screening strategies should therefore consider how exposure to these materials alters susceptibility to other environmental exposures. - Full Article Source

07/18/13 - Scientists Seek Biomarkers For Violence

KeelyNet

"A Newtown couple, both scientists, who lost their daughter in the school shooting, are wondering whether there were clues in the shooter's physiological makeup — his DNA, his blood, his brain chemistry. They are now involved in a search for biomarkers, similar to those that may indicate disease, for violence.

They are raising money to help fund this research, but the effort is running into obstacles, in part, over ethical concerns.

'I'm not opposed to research on violence and biomarkers, but I'm concerned about making too big of a leap between biomarkers and violence,' said Troy Duster, a researcher at the University of California at Berkeley. There is concern that science may find biomarkers long before society can deal with its implications."

Discovering what leads to violent behavior ought to be no harder than discovering why high levels of cholesterol predispose people to heart disease, said Mr. Richman, a pharmaceutical researcher at Boehringer Ingelheim in Danbury, Conn.

There is no test that could predict every violent crime, but scientists say there are identifiable inherited traits linked to aggression that are worth exploring. Studying them could be the key to ensuring proper treatment and reducing violence.

07/18/13 - £1m prize for solving world's biggest problem
Prime Minister David Cameron has announced a £1 million prize for anyone who can “identify and solve the biggest problem of our time”.

The new 'grand innovation challenge' is inspired by the Longitude Prize set by the British government in 1714, which promised £20,000 to the person who mastered the challenge of calculating longitude at sea to help maritime navigation.

The problem itself has not been defined yet, but Cameron said that he wanted to “get the nation engaged on what the biggest problems are in science and in our lives that we need to crack”. British cosmologist and astrophysicist Martin Rees will run the exercise for identifying the challenge.

“There are so many problems in our world that need that amazing solutions – whether it is a cure for dementia, solving the problem of diabetes, having a flight from Britain to New York that's carbon-free,” said Cameron.

“Let's challenge the public and challenge the scientist for which is the great problem we want to crack. I think it's an exciting idea and another example of Britain leading in innovation.”

The £1 million will come from the Technology Strategy Board's budget. Universities and Science Minister David Willetts added that when people have identified the challenge, other sponsors might come on board.

“The Prime Minister has made it clear that innovation is at the heart of economic growth. This competition aims to get the whole country thinking about how to tackle major challenges through innovation,” said David Bott, Director of Innovation Programmes at the Technology Strategy Board. - Full Article Source

07/18/13 - What Medical Tests Teach Us About NSA Surveillance Program
"In many ways finding the small amount of terrorists within the United States is like screening a population of people for a rare disease. A physician explains why collecting excessive data is actually dangerous. Each time a test is run, the number of people incorrectly identified quickly dwarfs the correct matches. Just like in medicine, being incorrectly labelled has serious consequences."

Patients request excessive amounts of testing on a routine basis. Maybe a friend was recently diagnosed with an illness, or the press is reporting that a celebrity just died from a rare disease. Commercials on television have reminded all of us to “discuss with your doctor” and thus add labels to our list of medical problems. It would seem that pages upon pages of labs results and fancy digital pictures should rule out anything dangerous and reassure us all. Although many patients will be disappointed, the wrong answer is to fire off a huge workup. The incorrect answer is to collect needless data.

To understand the dangers of over-testing requires a little background knowledge. Allow me to use a hypothetical example. A very rare disease called TT has been discovered and it affects about .01% of the population. If the test is 90% accurate, for every nine people that are correctly diagnosed, one person will be missed. Although many patients will be disappointed, the wrong answer is to fire off a huge workup. The incorrect answer is to collect needless data. More importantly 10,000 people will be incorrectly told they might have the disease! Remember that this is one single test. If we perform multiple tests, the incorrect results multiply.

In the world of medicine the false positive effects of over-testing cause great expense through specialist referrals and additional testing. The work up of these abnormal tests harms patients directly through unneeded biopsies, radiation required for radiographs, and medication side effects. What does this have to do with the NSA?

As a physician, I know that collecting too much information often can be more dangerous than not collecting enough. Let us assume that the number of patients with our fictional TT disease are actually the number of terrorists in the United States. If NSA’s lab test of searching phone metadata is 90% accurate, 10,000 people will be incorrectly labelled for every nine people correctly caught. The actual test results are actually even worse considering nobody actually believes 0.01% of the US population are terrorists or that any data mining technique is really 90% accurate.

Remember that the number of people incorrectly labelled increases with each test. If NSA’s lab test of searching phone metadata is 90% accurate, 10,000 people will be incorrectly labelled for every nine people correctly caught. So when the NSA searches Internet patterns, that is another huge group of people incorrectly “diagnosed” as terrorists. Searching travel patterns yields another. The terrorist database list grows and grows.

We have proof that this terrorism overdiagnosis is occurring. The press frequently reports how the the terrorist “no-fly” list has erred by preventing an innocent child or a government official from travelling. For those affected, great expense is lost in travel plans, from time wasted, and in trying to get reputations cleared. Is it worth harming 10,000 people or 100,000 people to prevent one terrorist from flying?

As a physician I know to avoid ordering too many labs and tests. The collection of excessive data causes physical and monetary harm to my patients. We all need to realize that the over-testing and overdiagnosis of terrorism will eventually hurt us all. - Full Article Source

07/18/13 - Some Volcanoes 'Scream' At Increasing Pitches Until They Blow
"Swarms of small earthquakes often precede a volcanic eruption. They can reach such rapid succession that they create a "harmonic tremor" that resembles sound made by some musical instruments.

A new analysis of an eruption sequence at Alaska's Redoubt Volcano in March 2009 shows the harmonic tremor glided to substantially higher frequencies and then stopped abruptly just before six of the eruptions.

Scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey's Alaska Volcano Observatory have dubbed the highest-frequency harmonic tremor at Redoubt Volcano 'the screams' because the episodes reach such high pitch compared with a 1-to-5 hertz starting point.

Alicia Hotovec-Ellis, a University of Washington doctoral student in Earth and space sciences and an author of two papers examining the phenomenon, has created a 10-second recording and a one-minute recording that provides a 60-times faster representation of harmonic tremor and small earthquakes."

The source of the earthquakes and harmonic tremor isn’t known precisely. Some volcanoes emit sound when magma – a mixture of molten rock, suspended solids and gas bubbles – resonates as it pushes up through thin cracks in the Earth’s crust.

But Hotovec-Ellis believes in this case the earthquakes and harmonic tremor happen as magma is forced through a narrow conduit under great pressure into the heart of the mountain. The thick magma sticks to the rock surface inside the conduit until the pressure is enough to move it higher, where it sticks until the pressure moves it again.

Each of these sudden movements results in a small earthquake, ranging in magnitude from about 0.5 to 1.5, she said. As the pressure builds, the quakes get smaller and happen in such rapid succession that they blend into a continuous harmonic tremor.

Scientists at the USGS Alaska Volcano Observatory have dubbed the highest-frequency harmonic tremor at Redoubt Volcano “the screams” because they reach such high pitch compared with a 1-to-5 hertz starting point. Hotovec-Ellis created two recordings of the seismic activity. A 10-second recording covers about 10 minutes of seismic sound and harmonic tremor, sped up 60 times. A one-minute recording condenses about an hour of activity that includes more than 1,600 small earthquakes that preceded the first explosion with harmonic tremor.

“Because there’s less time between each earthquake, there’s not enough time to build up enough pressure for a bigger one,” Hotovec-Ellis said. “After the frequency glides up to a ridiculously high frequency, it pauses and then it explodes.”

07/18/13 - Scientists Use Sound Waves To Levitate, Move Objects
"The tragic opera Rigoletto may move you to tears, but here's a more literal application of the moving power of sound. Sound waves with frequencies just above human hearing can levitate tiny particles and liquid droplets and even move them around, a team of engineers has demonstrated. The advance could open up new ways to handle delicate materials or mix pharmaceuticals."

Researchers have already developed several levitation methods. For example, electrostatic or magnetic fields can exert a concentrated force on an object to counteract gravity. But these fields work only on metallic substances or materials with magnetic properties. Sound waves don't discriminate, however, and physicists worked out the basic principle of "acoustic levitation" nearly a century ago.

A vibrating plate generates a sound wave that bounces against another surface to create a stable standing wave. The points of lower pressure in this static pattern can trap a particle. Scientists have learned how to hold increasingly heavy particles including superdense iridium and even liquid droplets in this acoustic sweet spot.

But until now, that was pretty much the extent of the trick, says mechanical engineer Dimos Poulikakos of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. "It's like we had a car which we made fancier and fancier, but it stayed parked. We were never able to drive." Moving a liquid with sound is a delicate balancing act, he says. As you vary the acoustic force to push the droplet around, you run the risk of shattering it with too much pressure.

Poulikakos's team spent 4 years trying to budge their floating droplets from a standstill. Finally, they conceived of a chessboard-style setup with multiple vibrating plates, each generating its own sound frequency. By varying the frequency that each plate emits, they can move the acoustic field and the object trapped inside.

Their new design, described online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, can precisely control the lateral movement of liquid droplets while keeping them floating smoothly in midair. It can also move them toward one another.

When two droplets are forced into the same place, they may coalesce into a single droplet or react dramatically. The violent union of sodium and water, for example, is the type of reaction best observed and controlled from a distance, Poulikakos says.

In the new research, the team merges liquids with solids, dissolving coffee in a water droplet, and also uses the setup to lift and spin a toothpick. Previously, no one had been able to control objects larger than a few millimeters in diameter, says physicist Chris Benmore of Argonne National Laboratory in Lemont, Illinois, who was not involved in the work.

The technique is limited to objects about three times the density of water, but the team is now working to push its limits. By changing the shape of the reflecting surface to create a stronger acoustic force, they expect to move denser materials, such as steel. - Full Article Source

07/18/13 - Describe Any Location On Earth In 3 Words
"London startup what3words has successfully launched a new website which has carved the world map into almost 57 trillion 3m x 3m squares, assigning each square a simple, unique 3 word address.

For instance, the 'what3words' for the famous Peter Pan statue in London's Hyde Park is 'union.prop.enjoy'. This means you can easily describe even remote locations with great precision.

CEO Chris Sheldrick says, 'We see our service being most useful where current methods of describing location (e.g. postcodes or ZIP codes) don't do the job well enough or don't do the job at all — but of course it has applications as a preferred alternative even where the existing solutions do a decent job, but perhaps less precise/customised than w3w.' An API is planned 'in the coming weeks.'"

The OneWord option doesn’t have to be literally a single word — although it can be, such as ‘bicycle’ (above, right) for instance — but can be whatever propriety string the buyer fancies (assuming someone else hasn’t bought it already). Other examples that have apparently already been purchased include ‘johnoffice’ and ‘football’.

what3words’ standard three-word location stamps, which are automatically assigned to all global locations, are far more poetic, if less memorable. Sheldrick says its algorithm typically assigns shorter, easier-to-remember word combinations to more densely populated areas. And vice versa. - Full Article Source

07/18/13 - The City Where People Are Afraid To Breathe
"BBC reports that cases of an incurable illness called valley fever are multiplying at an alarming and mystifying rate in the American south-west.

Few places have been hit as hard as Avenal, a remote city of 14,000 people, nestling in a dip in the floor of the San Joaquin Valley in what experts refer to as a 'hot zone' for coccidioidomycosis — an illness caused by the inhalation of tiny fungal spores that usually reside in the soil.

'On windy days you are more conscious of it,' says Enrique Jimenez. 'You breathe in through your nose, and try not to breathe in as much dust. I worked in the fields for a long time, my father managed a few crops out here, and we took precautions, wearing bandanas.' Valley Fever is not easy to treat.

Anti-fungal drugs are available for serious cases but some patients don't respond and it can take years to clear up. It never leaves the body and symptoms can be triggered again. Some patients are on the drugs for life, at a crippling financial cost. During World War II, German prisoners held at a camp in Arizona fell ill.

Germany reportedly invoked the Geneva Convention to try to get them moved. Longstanding concerns about valley fever were heightened recently when a federal health official ordered the transfer of more than 3,000 exceptionally vulnerable inmates from two San Joaquin Valley prisons where several dozen have died of the disease in recent years.

Dale Pulde, a motorcycle mechanic in Los Angeles County, said he contracted the disease three years ago after traveling to Bakersfield in Kern County and was coughing so hard he was blacking out; he spit blood and couldn't catch his breath.

For two months, doctors tested him for everything from tuberculosis to cancer until blood tests confirmed he had the fever.

'When I found out that health officials knew about (this disease) and how common it is, I was beside myself,' said Pulde. 'Why don't they tell people?'" - Full Article Source

07/18/13 - Smart Knife Sniffs Out Cancer Cells
KeelyNet "When surgeons can't determine the edges of a tumor, it's a problem. Cut too much, and they risk hurting the patient. Cut too little, and they may leave stray cancer cells behind.

Now, researchers have developed a surgical knife that can sniff the smoke made as it cuts tissue, almost instantly detecting whether cells are cancerous or healthy.

The 'intelligent knife,' or iKnife could distinguish normal and tumor tissues from different organs, such as breast, liver, and brain, and could even identify the origin of a tumor that was a metastasis, a secondary growth seeded by a primary tumor elsewhere in the body."

The souped-up scalpel works by analyzing lipids, the fatty molecules that make up much of the cell membrane. In the past few years, chemists have shown that ratios of certain lipids can be used to identify various biological tissues, including tumors. But this requires first removing and preparing the tissue for a technique called mass spectrometry, which analyzes the mass and structure of charged molecules.

Hungarian chemist Zoltán Takáts wondered if he could speed things up by directly analyzing the smoke created by the electrosurgical knives that surgeons use to cut and cauterize blood vessels. Although the smoke is "a very nasty" tarry mixture, Takáts says, he realized that one component is a vapor containing ionized molecules—just what mass spectrometry needs. His team has shown that the lipid profiles identified by piping this vapor from an electrosurgical knife to a mass spectrometer correspond to different tissue types from animals.

Now, his group at Imperial College London, together with Jeremy Nicholson, a biochemist who heads Imperial College's department of surgery and cancer, has tested what they've dubbed the "intelligent knife," or iKnife, in the operating room.

The team collected nearly 3000 tissue samples from about 300 cancer patients' surgeries, had pathologists identify if a sample was healthy tissue or a type of cancer, then matched up each result with the lipid profile they got by touching the iKnife to the same sample. They showed that the iKnife could distinguish normal and tumor tissues from different organs, such as breast, liver, and brain, and could even identify the origin of a tumor that was a metastasis, a secondary growth seeded by a primary tumor elsewhere in the body.

The researchers next tried out the iKnife during 81 actual cancer surgeries using the 3000-sample database as a reference. The iKnife results matched pathology lab results after the surgery for cancerous and normal tissues for nearly all patients, the researchers report online today in Science Translational Medicine.

With only a 1- to 3-second delay for an iKnife readout, "it's real-time information" Takáts says. (Waiting for pathologists to analyze a sample can take up to 30 minutes.) That feedback could minimize the time a patient is under anesthesia and allow surgeons to work faster and more effectively. The team's next step is to conduct clinical trials to find out if using the iKnife helps patients develop fewer recurring tumors and live longer. - Full Article Source

07/18/13 - Pre-Dawn Wireless Emergency Alert Wakes Up NYC
"Many people, perhaps millions, in and around NYC were loudly awoken shortly before 4am this morning by an activation of the Wireless Emergency Alert system.

As the New York Times is reporting, the alert was related to an ongoing search for a missing child. Given that the alert asked people to look out for a 'Tan Lexus ES300' with NY Plate 'GEX1377,' many New Yorkers are questioning the logic of waking up the whole city to ask them to look for a car.

Normally such alerts are reserved for road-side signs.

07/18/13 - Cell Phone Powered By Urine
KeelyNet "The newest source of battery power for your cell phone is both cheap and abundant. Scientists report that microbial fuel cells using human urine can directly power a cell phone battery.

However, the devices are not quite portable enough to come in handy during a marathon pub crawl. One consists of six, 4-inch-long ceramic cylinders; the other is a network of 25 smaller fuel cells borrowed from the team's waste-fueled EcoBot.

And urine-powered conversations would have to be short and sweet. After 24 hours of charging, a Samsung phone stayed alive for 25 minutes—enough to send several texts and make a 6-minute, 20-second call."

“One product that we can be sure of an unending supply is our own urine. By harnessing this power as urine passes through a cascade of microbial fuel cells (MFCs), we have managed to charge a Samsung mobile phone. The beauty of this fuel source is that we are not relying on the erratic nature of the wind or the sun; we are actually re-using waste to create energy.

“So far the microbial fuel power stack that we have developed generates enough power to enable SMS messaging, web browsing and to make a brief phone call. Making a call on a mobile phone takes up the most energy but we will get to the place where we can charge a battery for longer periods. The concept has been tested and it works – it's now for us to develop and refine the process so that we can develop MFCs to fully charge a battery.”

The Microbial Fuel Cell is an energy converter, which turns organic matter directly into electricity, via the metabolism of live microorganisms. Essentially, the electricity is a by-product of the microbes' natural life cycle, so the more they eat things like urine, the more energy they generate and for longer periods of time; so it's beneficial to keep doing it!

The electricity output from MFCs is relatively small and so far we have only been able to store and accumulate these low levels of energy into capacitors or super-capacitors, for short charge/discharge cycles. This is the first time we have been able to directly charge the battery of a device such as a mobile phone and it is indeed a breakthrough. - Full Article Source

- helps save the bees from colony colapse disorder. Fewer dying bees on the sidewalks. We need more purviance pyramids to help the bees and all Earth's inhabitants.
- stops man-made earthquakes!

When the purviance pyramid was on top of the garage the skies were clear, free of chemtrails. When I took the pyramid off the roof and put it inside we got chemtrails. It happened all the time, stationary pyramid outside then no chemtrails, pyramid inside and chemtrails all over.

Now I have to move it around. So if yours stops working stationary, then I recommend get up early in the morning (meaning about 5:00 and move your pyramid about 8 miles or so and see what happens.

Another crucial factor in the performance of the Purviance Pyramid is that it must not be obstructed.

The Purviance Pyramid is very picky. It must have complete airflow for it to work properly. - Full Article Source

07/18/13 - Lightweight green material could replace concrete, but contains no cement
Known as Cenocell, the material offers attributes that include high strength and light weight – without the use of cement, an essential ingredient of conventional concrete.

With broad potential applications and advantages such as good insulating properties and fire resistance, the “green” material could replace concrete, wood and other materials in a broad range of applications in construction, transportation and even aerospace.

“Dealing with the ash left over from burning coal is a problem all over the world,” said Doyoyo. “By using it for real applications, our process can make the ash a useful commodity instead of a waste product. It could also create new industry and new jobs in parts of the world that need them badly.”

Cenocell, produced from either fly ash or bottom ash in a reaction with organic chemicals, requires none of the cement or aggregate – sand and rock – used in concrete. And unlike concrete, it emerges from curing ovens in final form and does not require a lengthy period to reach full strength.

“This is a new material very different from concrete,” Doyoyo said.

Because it uses what is now considered a waste material to replace cement – which generates carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas – the new material is considered an asset to the environment. The material can have a wide range of properties that make it competitive with concrete, especially the new classes of autoclaved lightweight concrete.

For instance, specific densities range from 0.3 to 1.6, and the material can be manufactured to withstand pressures of up to 7,000 pounds per cubic inch. The properties can be controlled by choosing the proper ash particles size, chemical composition, and the curing time, which can range from three to 24 hours. - Full Article Source

Legend has it that hidden in the remote reaches of the Himalayan mountains lies a secret that would have saved Ponce de Leon from years of fruitless searching.

There, generations of Tibetan monks have passed down a series of exercises with mystical, age-reversing properties. Known as the Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation or the Five Rites, these once-secret exercises are now available to Westerners in Ancient Secret of the Fountain Of Youth.

Peter Kelder's book begins with an account of his own introduction to the rites by way of Colonel Bradford, a mysterious retired British army officer who learned of the rites while journeying high up in the Himalayas.

Fountain of Youth then offers practical instructions for each of the five rites, which resemble yoga postures.

07/14/13 - Electro-permanent magnets for quadcopters
Imagine a quadcopter hovering above a payload – a can of beans, perhaps. The ‘copter descends onto the payload, activates an electromagnet, and flies away with a hobo’s dinner. Right now, this is a bit of an impossibility. A normal electromagnet that powerful would consume an amazing amount of power, something quads don’t usually have in abundance. With the OpenGrab project, the dream of a remote-controlled skycrane is within reach, thanks to some very clever applications of magnetics.

The tech behind the OpenGrab is an electro-permanent magnet, basically an electromagnet you can turn on and off, but doesn’t require any power to stay on. OpenGrab was heavily influenced by a PhD thesis aimed at using these devices for self-assembling buildings.

This project had a very successful Kickstarter campaign and has seen some great progress in the project. While beer doesn’t come in steel cans anymore, we can imagine a whole lot of really cool applications for this tech from infuriating electronic puzzles to some very cool remote sensing applications.

Envision for a moment a simple mechanism that enables a quadrocopter to pick up and drop a cargo such as building hardware like seen in the video below. http://youtu.be/JnkMyfQ5YfY?t=40s I stumbled upon this idea by reading this great article by Travis Deyle about electro-permanent magnets.

These magnets are programmed (on off) with a current pulse. No static energy is required. Changing the magnetic field does require energy and is around 1 Joule for our purposes. These electro-permanent magnets are just as strong as Neodymium magnets.

I am proposing to manufacture a simple open source hardware device to do just that, aiming at sub $50 retail released under something similar to the GPL. All prints and design files are available on request, and if there is enough interest i would move all documentation online. The target markets are hobbyists, students and the larger DIY community The device is simple enough to appeal to a large audience.

ELECTRO PERMANENT MAGNETS - What are Electro Permanent Magnets? Ara Nerses Knaian: "An electropermanent magnet is a solid-state device whose external magnetic field can be modulated by an electrical pulse. No electrical power is required to maintain the field, only to do mechanical work or to change the device's state."

If you like to read more Ara Nerses Knaian has this really great paper available here on which i based this design. Hizook.com has kindly asked me to stop abusing their server, so here is the link to their article containing a link to the paper. http://www.hizook.com/blog/2010/12/07/electropermanent-magnets-programmable-magnets-zero-static-power-consumption-enable-s

POWER CONSUMPTION - Power consumption? About 1 Joules for switching, none in static state. About 40 Amps for less than a millisecond from the capacitor bank. Switching once per second would consume 1-2W of power taking ohmic losses into account.

Switching: Switching the gripper on is done by aligning the poles of the Alnico magnet with the Neodyium magnet by discharging 1Joule into coil one via a 3V and 5V logic level compatible Mosfet (Solid state switch). The capacitor bank recharges via a charge resistor in about half a second at which time one can turn on Mosfet two to discharge the capacitor bank into coil 2 turning the gripper off.

The capacitor bank provides a nice fail-safe feature; you won't be able to crash the power supply (battery on your quad) if for some reason a Mosfet is left on.

WEIGHT AND CAPACITY - The complete device will have a mass of about 50 grams capable of holding a mass of 10kg in optimal conditions, in practice it should securely hold 1kg of cargo on a quadrocopter.

07/14/13 - R.I.P. Ken Shoulders June 7th

KeelyNet

Another blazing light extinguished...

I am so sorry to hear of Ken's passing on June 7th...what a great guy! I just found out when I saw it on the zpenergy.com site.

I used to live in Dallas and Ken and Mrs. Shoulders visited me years ago when he was still with Church. Really interesting conversation and I'd see Ken at various conferences and at Dr. Bockris' invitation only Low Level Energy Transmutation conferences and we'd spend some time catching up and swapping info.

He used to wear house slippers and we'd joke about it and changing them to bunny slippers...met Steven too. Great guys.

I've been in contact with Ken via email for years and I put some of his papers up on my website when he was just getting into websites, once he got his site up, I took them down to avoid confusion...old Keelynet Shoulders page (also mirrored at Exotic Vacuum Objects), which was then superceded by Shoulders Papers and one other article Ken Shoulders 'interviewed'.

A few years ago, he asked about what its like living in Mexico and said he was considering a move somewhere down here IF there were the right people to work with. Maybe in a bigger city with a university but science doesn't seem to exist here.

I'll sure miss Ken...such a cool guy and so very smart...only a handful of people realized what he was trying to get across at the cold fusion presentations, that the very corrosion that forever corrupts cold fusion efforts is in fact due to transmutations which contaminate the process.

And Ken showed them he had produced the exact same type of transmutations with his EV cluster experiments.

But cold fusion has become a literal CHURCH where no one wants to hear (because of all the time and money invested in it) that its nothing more than an exotic battery (in my opinion) because the anomalous heat dissipates due to corrosion from these transmutations and you have to replace all the parts...exactly how they rebuild batteries.

I'm really sorry to hear this about Ken and I suspect it devastated his family.

Rest assured, Ken did a great deal of original and highly creative experiments where the results are so advanced they won't be put into practical use for decades more...a man before his time.

Just the applications for consumer electronics such as LCD TVs using his EV clusters for high definition, super bright TV should have made him a multi-millionaire.

I also loved his work with micro flying machines and I'd heard the stories about his self-charging flying machine (pre-drones) that forever buzzed around his lab and when power was low, it would plug itself in to recharge, then back into the air. Even had capacitance sensors so it would move away if you try to touch it. Would love to have seen that even as a youtube.

Sadly, I also see Dr. J.O.M. Bockris passed away on July 7th. He and Ken were friends and Dr. Bockris always invited Ken to his low level energy conferences for Ken's thoroughly incredible presentation that always resulted in lively discussions by all.

"Bernhardt Patrick John O'Mara Bockris, (born 5 January 1923, in Johannesburg, South Africa[1]),deceased July 7, 2013..."

07/14/13 - R.I.P. Professor Emeritus J.O.M. Bockris - July 7th

KeelyNet

More sad news - Bernhardt Patrick John O'Mara Bockris, (born 5 January 1923, in Johannesburg, South Africa[1]),deceased July 7, 2013, in Gainesville, Florida, had a successful and much decorated career as a Professor and Distinguished Professor in the physical sciences, chiefly electrochemistry.

"He was one of the first few scientists to detect tritium from cold fusion electrolytic cells while reproducing the Fleischmann-Pons Effect (FPE) of excess heat, and he paid a price for it. Accused of fraud, and then “misconduct”, Texas A&M University’s Committee of Inquiry eventually cleared of all charges after a third and final investigation turned up no wrongdoing."

Among wide ranging contributions to physical chemistry Bockris is best known for his creation of Physical Electrochemistry, taking an old and decayed subject into modern times (1950 to 1970); for the introduction of a Hydrogen Economy (1971 to Present); and for the first known nuclear reactions to be carried out in aqueous solutions (1989 to 1997).[2]

Two of the areas (out of 23) which he chose to study have provoked controversy, namely, that of cold fusion[3] and transmutation.[4][5] His interests in these areas brought harsh criticism.[6]

Dr. Bockris was exonerated of fraud or scientific misconduct by his university after three investigations in 1995.[7][8][9][10]

Bockris has authored and/or coauthored more than 712 papers and more than 24 books up to this time (June 2012).

His areas of interest include physical electrochemistry, environmental chemistry, photoelectrochemistry, bioelectrochemistry, quantum electrochemistry, and founding contributions to condensed matter nuclear reactions.

He has had undergraduate students come from 14 countries to do research with him. Between 1961 and 1969 he ranked between 8th and 11th of the frequency of quotations among U.S. physical chemists.

In retirement, Bockris authored a book "The New Paradigm," (2005). This 505 page book considers to what extent Physics has to be modified to react to new phenomena which seem to be established under the title "Paranormal Phenomena," (e.g., telepathy, far-viewing, precognition.)[21]

In retirement, Bockris authored a book "The New Paradigm," (2005). This 505 page book considers to what extent Physics has to be modified to react to new phenomena which seem to be established under the title "Paranormal Phenomena," (e.g., telepathy, far-viewing, precognition.)[21]

"Aggie Alchemy: John Bockris was known around Texas A&M as a chemist interested in "weird science." Joe Champion gave him all he could handle." Houston Press, 7 April 1994

Pool, Robert (1993), "Alchemy altercation at Texas A&M", Science 262: 1367.

John Bockris made this list some years ago when he provided support (and apparent experimental evidence) for Fleischman and Pons' work on cold fusion. It was at his laboratory which reported finding large amounts of tritium in the cold fusion apparatus, clear evidence of a nuclear reaction. Later, it was his lab that was suspected of having "spiked" the tritium reported. As a friend and supporter of Fleischman and Pons, his work was suspect.

Here is another controversy: Bockris accepted $200,000 research grant from a William Telander, a West Coast investor, to chemical processes for changing silver into gold. The transmutation of elements is, of course, the dream of the alchemists.

Turns out that investor is under a cloud for fraud. And a middle man, who initially got Bockris interested in the research and found that the backer for the work, named Joe Champion, has been arrested on criminal charges. And the university is wondering how a major research university could have accepted a grant for such an investigation. The question now is, did Bockris violate any university regulations in accepting such a research project?

All charges were dropped against Bockris.

Bockris received a letter from the Provost, Charles Lee, 25 May 1995. This letter stated that the committee had come to the conclusion that Bockris had not violated any rule made by the university in respect to research.

As time went on, we learned there were many envious subordinate Profs who wanted Johns Emeritus title so they could run the department. They tried no less than three times to have Bockris kicked out after the Alchemy experiment which actually did produce traces of gold from lead and was written up in Wall Street Week at the time as 'Alchemy at Texas A&M'.

Bockris was proven right and retained his position as the plotters had failed to find true fault or error.

I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Bockris and discussing many things with him in depth. That lead to copies of many interesting items and theories and personal communications over a period of years.

I was honored and amazed that he kindly invited me to his Low Level Energy conferences where only 30 invitees were allowed. I asked him why and with a gleam in his eye, he says you know as much or more than all of these guys based on our many discussions. I'm sure he way overstated it but I was very pleased and never forgot his kindness.

He told me he didn't understand why people were so fascinated with cold fusion when, from his point of view, transmutation was far more interesting and useful. He said Trituim sold for about $30,000 a gram and if it could be made using transmutation it could fund worlds of new research efforts into this effect and many others.

I asked John what else would you with that money and he said he'd like a brand new black Bentley to drive around. I asked him why, being English, wouldn't he prefer a Rolls Royce, he said he'd always wanted the very classy and stylish handmade Bentley.

Average price for a new Bentley, ranges from $190,000 to $250,000. For a new Rolls Royce, between $300,000 to $400.000.

After his retirement his emails began bouncing because of some new privacy service he signed up for....so I sadly lost contact with him.

07/14/13 - Quartz Crystal Data Storage Could Outlast the Human Race
KeelyNet "Just in case you haven't been keeping up with the latest in five-dimensional digital data storage using femtocell-laser inscription, here's an update: it works.

A team of researchers at the University of Southampton have demonstrated a way to record and retrieve as much as 360 terabytes of digital data onto a single disk of quartz glass in a way that can withstand temperatures of up to 1000 C and should keep the data stable and readable for up to a million years.

'It is thrilling to think that we have created the first document which will likely survive the human race,' said Peter Kazansky, professor of physical optoelectronics at the Univ. of Southampton's Optical Research Centre. 'This technology can secure the last evidence of civilization: all we've learnt will not be forgotten.'

Leaving aside the question of how many Twitter posts and Facebook updates really need to be preserved longer than the human species, the technology appears to have tremendous potential for low-cost, long-term, high-volume archiving of enormous databanks.

The quartz-glass technique relies on lasers pulsing one quadrillion times per second though a modulator that splits each pulse into 256 beams, generating a holographic image that is recorded on self-assembled nanostructures within a disk of fused-quartz glass.

The data are stored in a five-dimensional matrix—the size and directional orientation of each nanostructured dot becomes dimensions four and five, in addition to the usual X, Y and Z axes that describe physical location.

Files are written in three layers of dots, separated by five micrometers within a disk of quartz glass nicknamed 'Superman memory crystal' by researchers. (Hitachi has also been researching something similar.)" - Full Article Source

07/14/13 - City Traffic fumes inked to increased cancer, heart disease risks
Air pollution, most notably from traffic exhaust fumes in urban areas, is correlated with an increased risk of lung cancer and heart failure, according to two new studies.

Smoking's still deadlier, but smoke cigarettes behind a car tailpipe and you're really in business.

It looked at the effect of long-term exposure to nitrogen oxides and particulate matter – PM2.5, which has a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometres, and PM10, with a diameter less than 10 micrometres. Among the participants, 2,095 developed lung cancer during an average 13 years of follow-up.

The researchers, led by Ole Raaschou-Nielsen from the Danish Cancer Society Research Centre, found that for every increase of five micrograms per cubic metre of PM2.5 pollution, the risk of lung cancer rose by 18%, and for every increase of 10 micrograms per cubic metre in PM10 pollution the risk increased by 22%. They found no link between lung cancer and nitrogen oxides.

Air pollution comes from traffic – mostly diesel fumes – household heating and industry. In cities where people live close together, "there is no reason to believe this [risk] is restricted to people of higher or lower socio-economic status," said Raaschou-Nielsen. They found a link with lung cancer even at low levels of air pollution, so the message was, he said, "the less the better and the more the worse".

The second study, published by the Lancet, shows that short-term exposure to air pollution increases the risk of being admitted to hospital with and dying of heart failure.

There are 750,000 people living with the effects of heart failure in the UK, and 20 million worldwide. The study, led by Nicholas Mills from Edinburgh University and funded by the British Heart Foundation, shows that air pollution can have potentially fatal effects on them.

"Heart failure is a common, costly and fatal condition … and is one of the most frequent reasons for hospital admission," Mills said. "While the role of air pollution is well recognised as a risk factor for heart attacks, it has been less clear whether exposure increases the risk of adverse events in patients with other cardiovascular conditions like heart failure.

"Since the entire population is exposed to air pollution, even modest reductions in air pollution could have major cardiovascular health benefits and substantial healthcare cost savings." - Full Article Source

07/14/13 - Combination sink/urinal reuses faucet water
KeelyNet Latvian designer Kaspars Jursons designed the Stand, a combination sink/urinal, to address water shortages. The water flowing from the tap as you wash your hands also flushes the toilet.

""It is more suitable for hygiene than just a urinal and then guys who don't wash [their] hands," Jursons told NPR.

The look reminds me of the Penal-Ware Comby, a stainless steel, suicide resistant toilet/sink combination designed for prisons.

Unfortunately, that device doesn't use the sink faucet's water to flush. - Full Article Source

07/14/13 - House Democrats Propose National Park On the Moon
KeelyNet "Two House Democrats, Reps. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) and Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-Texas), have proposed a bill called Apollo Lunar Landing Legacy Act, H.R. 2617 (PDF), that would establish the Apollo Lunar Landing Sites National Historical Park at all the Apollo lunar landing sites, according to a story in The Hill.

'The park would be comprised of all artifacts left on the surface of the moon from the Apollo 11 through 17 missions. The bill says these sites need to be protected because of the anticipated increase in commercial moon landings in the future.'"

“After one year, Interior and NASA would have to reach an agreement on how to manage the site, including how to monitor it, managing access to the sites and cataloguing the items in the park.

“The government would also have to submit the Apollo 11 lunar landing site to the United Nations for designation as a World Heritage site.”

The idea would be to protect the landing sites as historical areas as more commercial companies and foreign powers begin landing on the lunar surface.

Since the United States has foresworn any sovereign claims on the moon, thanks to having signed and ratified the Outer Space Treaty, there does not seem to be any legal basis to declare any part of the lunar surface a national park, not to mention attempting to enforce such a declaration.

The NASA authorization bill being advanced by House Democrats does not have any mention of a return to the moon, not to mention on a scale that would place employees of the National Park Service to set up visitors’ centers near Tranquility Base and other places.

The bill certainly does not authorize enough funding for such an undertaking. - Full Article Source

07/14/13 - Upside-Down Sensors Caused Proton-M Rocket Crash

KeelyNet

The impact of the rocket reportedly created a crater with a diameter of 150-200 meters. The access to the site was blocked by an emergency team and firefighters, however there was fire at the site, Interfax reported.

"According to Anatoly Zak, the crash of the Russion Proton rocket on 1 July was apparently caused by several angular velocity sensors having been installed upside down.

From the source: 'Each of those sensors had an arrow that was supposed to point toward the top of the vehicle, however multiple sensors on the failed rocket were pointing downward instead.'

It seems amazing that something as fundamental as this was not caught during quality control. Even more amazing is that the design of the sensors permits them to be installed in the wrong orientation in the first place.

Even the simplest of mechanical interlocks (such as a notch at one end that must be matched with a corresponding projection) could have prevented the accident."

A review of the quality control procedures used by the contractors responsible is underway.

As a result, the flight control system was receiving wrong information about the position of the rocket and tried to "correct" it, causing the vehicle to swing wildly and, ultimately, crash.

The paper trail led to a young technician responsible for the wrong assembly of the hardware, but also raised serious issues of quality control at the Proton's manufacturing plant, at the rocket's testing facility and at the assembly building in Baikonur. It appeared that no visual control of the faulty installation had been conducted, while electrical checks could not detect the problem since all circuits had been working correctly.

The loss of three satellites was estimated at around $200 million, the Interfax news agency reported, however there were conflicting reports on whether the mission was ensured. - Full Article Source

07/14/13 - City-Sized Ice Shelf Breaks Free Of Antarctica

KeelyNet

"Germany's TerraSAR-X satellite is showing that the Antarctic's Pine Island ice shelf has calved a 'berg of 720 square kilometres, 'the size of Hamburg.'

Angelika Humbert says 'The Western Antarctic land ice is on land which is deeper than sea level. Its "bed" tends towards the land.

The danger therefore exists that these large ice masses will become unstable and will start to slide.'

The article extrapolates that 'If the entire West Antarctic ice shield were to flow into the Ocean, this would lead to a global rise in sea level of around 3.3 meters.' Goodbye Florida.

Nina Wilkens, PhD graduate in Professor Humbert's team, adds: "Using the images we have been able to follow how the larger crack on the Pine Island glacier extended initially to a length of 28 kilometres. Shortly before the "birth" of the iceberg, the gap then widened bit by bit so that it measured around 540 metres at its widest point."

"The wind now brings warm sea water beneath the shelf ice. Over time, this process means that the shelf ice melts from below, primarily at the so-called grounding line, the critical transition to the land ice", says the scientist. - Full Article Source

KeelyNet "Since 1980, several teams have tried (and failed) to build a human-powered helicopter that could win the elusive $250,000 Sikorsky prize. But a Canadian start-up, Aerovelo, has finally taken the crown with Atlas, a human-powered craft that managed to stay at least 10 feet in the air, for 60 seconds, within a 30'x30' area."

On June 13th, 2013, the AeroVelo Atlas Human-Powered Helicopter captured the long standing AHS Sikorsky Prize with a flight lasting 64.1 seconds and reaching an altitude of 3.3 metres. Visit www.aerovelo.com for more details.

The competition was initially opened in 1980, and over the course of the 33 years that followed, dozens of teams from around the world pushed the limits of existing technology in pursuit of this once-thought-to-be impossible goal.

07/14/13 - Math and Science Popular With Students Until They Realize They're Hard
KeelyNet "Khadeeja Safdar reports in the WSJ that researchers who surveyed 655 incoming college students found that while math and science majors drew the most interest initially, not many students finished with degrees in those subjects.

Students who dropped out didn't do so because they discovered an unexpected amount of the work and because they were dissatisfied with their grades.

"Students knew science was hard to begin with, but for a lot of them it turned out to be much worse than what they expected," says Todd R. Stinebrickner, one of the paper's authors. "What they didn't expect is that even if they work hard, they still won't do well."

The authors add that the substantial overoptimism about completing a degree in science can be attributed largely to students beginning school with misperceptions about their ability to perform well academically in science.

""If more science graduates are desired, the findings suggest the importance of policies at younger ages that lead students to enter college better prepared (PDF) to study science."" - Full Article Source

07/14/13 - Iris Scans Are the New School IDs
KeelyNet "Winthrop University in South Carolina is testing out iris scanning technology during freshman orientation this summer. Students had their eyes scanned as they received their ID cards in June.

'Iris scanning has a very high level of accuracy, and you don't have to touch anything, said James Hammond, head of Winthrop University's Information Technology department. 'It can be hands free security.'"

South Dakota-based Blinkspot manufactures iris scanners specifically for use on school buses. When elementary school students come aboard, they look into a scanner (it looks like a pair of binoculars). The reader will beep if they're on the right bus and honk if they're on the wrong one.

The Blinkspot scanner syncs with a mobile app that parents can use to see where their child is. Every time a child boards or exits the bus, his parent gets an email or text with the child's photograph, a Google map where they boarded or exited the bus, as well as the time and date.

Iris-scanning is part of a growing trend called "biometrics," a type of security that recognizes physical characteristics to identify people. As the technology becomes faster and cheaper to build, several security equipment manufacturers are looking at biometric methods like iris scanning as the ID badge of the future.

In the next year, industry insiders say the technology will be available all over-- from banks to airports. That means instead of entering your pin number, you can gain access to an ATM in a blink. Used in an airport, the system will analyze your iris as you pass through security, identifying and welcoming you by name. - Full Article Source

07/14/13 - What the Government Pays To Snoop On You
In the era of intense government surveillance and secret court orders, a murky multimillion-dollar market has emerged.

"So what does it cost the government to snoop on us? Paid for by U.S. tax dollars, and with little scrutiny, surveillance fees charged by phone companies can vary wildly.

For example, AT&T, imposes a $325 'activation fee' for each wiretap and $10 a day to maintain it.

Smaller carriers Cricket and U.S. Cellular charge only about $250 per wiretap. But snoop on a Verizon customer?

That costs the government $775 for the first month and $500 each month after that, according to industry disclosures made last year to Congressman Edward Markey."

Industry says it doesn't profit from the hundreds of thousands of government eavesdropping requests it receives each year, and civil liberties groups want businesses to charge. They worry that government surveillance will become too cheap as companies automate their responses. And if companies gave away customer records for free, wouldn't that encourage uncalled-for surveillance?

"Government doesn't have the manpower to wade through irrelevant material any more than providers have the bandwidth to bury them in records," Gidari said. "In reality, there is a pretty good equilibrium and balance, with the exception of phone records," which are free. - Full Article Source

07/14/13 - Electrical Engineering Labor Pool Shrinking
"The number of electrical engineers in the workforce has declined over the last decade. It's not a steady decline, and it moves up and down, but the overall trend is not positive. In 2002 the U.S. had 385,000 employed electrical engineers; in 2004, post dot.com bubble, it was at 343,000.

It reached 382,000 in 2006, but has not risen above 350,000 since then, according to U.S. Labor Data. In 2012, there were 335,000 electrical engineers in the workforce. Of the situation, one unemployed electrical engineer said: 'I am getting interviews but, they have numerous candidates to choose from.

The employers are very fussy. They are really only interested in a perfect match to their needs.

They don't want the cost to develop talent internally.

They are even trying to combine positions to save money. I came across one employer trying to combine a mechanical and electrical engineer.'" - Full Article Source

07/14/13 - Energy Production Causes Big US Earthquakes
KeelyNet "Natural-gas extraction, geothermal-energy production and other activities that inject fluid underground have caused numerous earthquakes in the United States, scientists have reported in a trio of papers in Science (abstracts here, here and here).

Most of these quakes have been small, but some have exceeded magnitude 5.0. They include a magnitude-5.6 event that hit Oklahoma on 6 November 2011, damaging 14 homes and injuring two people."

The annual number of earthquakes record at magnitude 3.0 or higher in the central and eastern United States has increased almost tenfold in the past decade — from an average of 21 per year between 1967 and 2000 to a maximum of 188 in 2011.

A second study2, led by Nicholas van der Elst, a seismologist at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York, finds that at least half of the magnitude-4.5 or larger earthquakes that have struck the interior United States in the past decade have occurred near injection-well sites.

Ellsworth suspects that increased activity at natural-gas wells has altered stresses in earthquake-susceptible areas by increasing the fluid pore pressure in underground rock, lubricating pre-existing faults so they are more likely to rupture.

Previous research has linked hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, at such wells to nearby quakes. But Ellsworth says that the controversial technique — which uses high-pressure fluids to shatter rocks and release trapped natural gas — has never produced an earthquake larger than magnitude 3.6. He believes that it is not fracking itself, but the disposal of waste water from the process by reinjecting it into adjacent rock that has driven the increase in the number of bigger quakes.

One way to work out which areas might be at risk, says van der Elst, is to watch what happens after large earthquakes — magnitude 8.0 and higher — around the world, such as those that have afflicted Japan, Chile and Sumatra in recent years.

Seismic Swarms

Such events send waves rippling along the entire surface of the planet. At most well sites, these have little effect, but in a few cases they produce swarms of small tremors that are followed, months later, by larger, locally generated earthquakes.

Van der Elst says that this type of seismic swarm might serve as a warning that an injection-well zone is on the verge of overloading its nearby faults, potentially producing a damaging earthquake. - Full Article Source

07/14/13 - Texas and Florida Vie For Private Lunar Company Golden Spike's HQ
KeelyNet "The Denver Post reported on July 12, 2013 that Texas and Florida, already embroiled in a fight over which state will be the venue for SpaceX's commercial space port, are now vying to be the site of the headquarters of a company that, while smaller, has much loftier ambitions.

Golden Spike, the Boulder, Colorado based company that proposes to start commercial space flights to the moon with paying customers, is being courted by Texas and Florida to leave Colorado and to relocate its headquarters in either state."

"Golden Spike is not going to be generating a lot of jobs this year or next year, but it is more of the long-term investment," said Dale Ketcham, chief of strategic alliances at Space Florida. "They may or may not succeed, but there is a certain level of risk capital involved in the process and much of that is based upon the concepts and Alan Stern, who has a high level of credibility."

Texas ranks as the most tax-friendly environment for small businesses, according to the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council's 2013 Business Tax Index. Florida has its own state entity called Space Florida that is solely dedicated to recruiting for and diversifying the state's aerospace industry. Colorado boasts the nation's highest per-capita aerospace employment figures and the most educated population among its competitors.

The state's efforts may be too little too late for Golden Spike, which recently had several technical breakthroughs with research partner companies like Northrup Grumman and United Launch Alliance, moving it quickly along its business development plan.

Each two-person expedition to the moon carries a price tag of $1.5 billion. Stern estimates, based off of market interest, there will be 20 to 30 launches.

If Golden Spike launched 25 expeditions, the company holds $40 billion in potential market value, Stern estimates. "That's a pretty substantial business by anyone's standards," he said.

For Stern and Golden Spike, the courting process isn't about government funding but about relationships and support during these early stages that will make the biggest difference. - Full Article Source

07/14/13 - Doctor Discovers Secret of Life and Death
KeelyNet (Posted a shorter version of this earlier but here is more information. - JWD)

The secret of life and the vital principle of its source have been uncovered by an Indiana physician. A lengthy series of experiments have been conducted, all leading conclusively to the support of the theory advanced by the investigator, and the success of the experiments have been sufficient, according to the physician’s associates, to convince even the most skeptical member of the profession that the Indiana doctor has brought to light a most important discovery. The physician is Dr. C. W. Littlefield, a well-known practitioner of central Indiana, whose home is in Alexandria, and whose laboratory also is located in the gas belt city. For fifteen years Dr. Littlefield has pursued his investigation and experiments and only recently consented to make public the result of his laboratory work.

During all this time the physician has confined his experiments to cats, dogs, monkeys and other lower animals and, only upon one occasion was it found possible to test the potency of his discovery on a human being. In this solitary case his theory was proved as correct as when its workings were applied to animals of the lower form. Dr. Littlefield asserts that his experiments have demonstrated to his satisfaction and to the satisfaction of his medical associates some of the following facts:

Life is not dependent upon organic function as a principle.

It may be infused into organized bodies even after the organs have ceased to perform their legitimate offices.

Where death has been caused by means not impairing tissue formation or induced by causes not destructive of organs vital in their purpose, life may be recalled and a perfect resuscitation may be secured by the employment of the most simple agents.

In short, Dr. Littlefield makes the astounding assertion that he can bring the dead back to life. But, as is obvious, he qualifies his assertion with the declaration that his methods are inoperative where death has been occasioned by tissue or organic destruction which cannot be repaired or replaced. The Indiana physician asserts that the secret of life, in substance, is violate magnetism.

In demonstrating his theory the doctor employs a solution of saline origin, with salt as the basis, saturated with oleo; resin and exposed for several hours to an atmosphere of free ammonia. The chemical thus formed, he declares, is an exact reproduction of conditions existing in the human body.

Here, however, the volatile magnetism is drawn into the body from the atmosphere through the lungs and finding present In body tissue mineral compounds the potent atmosphere is at once absorbed, held in bounds, and later compounded by natural processes with the tissue and organic formations. In other words, by securing through artificial means the solution which has proved so effectual in his experiments, the doctor asserts he is only duplicating on a small but comprehensive scale what occurs in the human body when air enters normal lungs and becomes the life-giving atmosphere of a normal body.

Having secured this saline solution, Dr.Littlefield reduces it to a powder. It is this powder that he has employed throughout his long course of experiments. For instance, having put to death a dog or cat by drowning and allowed the corpse to remain long enough to convince anyone following his investigations that all life is extinct.

Dr. Littlefield takes the corpse and, without preparation of any kind, places it upon a heated stone or porcelain plate, brought to a temperature corresponding to that of the normal body, and covers it thoroughly with a light layer of the powder. Within three or four minutes from the time the powder has been coated over the dead body signs of life manifest themselves, and within fifteen minutes after the resuscitating methods were begun, in every instance, the subject has returned to normal life.

Possibly one of the most peculiar features of the doctor’s experiments is the fact that, upon regaining consciousness and life in every instance, the beasts have displayed an intense anger. This, after an hour or so, however, wears away, and the subjects become greatly attached to Dr. Littlefleld, refusing to be separated from him. Cats, the experimenter has discovered, are probably less responsive to his methods than animals of similar importance In the animal scale.

This doubtless is due to the fact that a cat, having been killed by drowning, suffers more than other animals and following resuscitation, usually evince symptoms of pneumonia or lung inflammation, due to the irritation and exposure induced by direct contact with the water. In such cases, however, a few drops of the powder administered internally have served invariably to relieve the sufferer and restore the subject to normal condition.

Dr. Littlefield asserts in a statement prepared some time ago that he has not yet discovered how long a time may elapse between death and the time of attempted resuscitation before his theory and its operation become ineffective. A cat remained dead two hours and during this time was allowed to remain in the hot sun until rigor mortis had set in. The corpse was then placed upon the heated porcelain and powder applied and the animal returned to consciousness within five minutes.

The experimenter has allowed a number of flies and bees to remain dead for twelve hours and has succeeded restoring life within two or three minutes.

Only upon one occasion was the potency of Dr. Littlefield’s theory tried upon the human being. This occurred some years ago, when the experiments had not reached their present perfect end finished state. Upon this occasion a boy who had fallen in the water through the ice was given up as dead by physicians summoned to restore life by the usual artificial means.

Dr. Littlefield, however, secured permission to make an attempt to resuscitate the lad and, taking his body to his laboratory a mile away, immediately submitted it to the powder treatment. In fifteen minutes, together with a continuance of the other means of restoring life, the boy revived and evinced no unusually abnormal symptoms.

Dr. Littlefleld makes his statement without reserve that he is positive, as in the instance already recited, his theory is successful in operation on human subjects.

The origin of the experiments which have led to the discoveries had its source in the doctor’s desire to discover, if possible, whether it were practical to rebuild injured or impaired tissues. The course of the experiments finally led into the channel they have now taken, and for a number of years the investigator has confined himself to the work in hand, abandoning his former researches.

The magnetic influence can easily be seen by placing a drop of the liquid with minute particles of solid substance in it under a microscope. The particles can be seen flying back and forth with indescribable energy and life.

These original experiments were based on a careful study of the various compounds that enter into the formation of the different tissues of the body and were, for the most part, an attempt to group both the organic and the mineral compounds in the exact proportions in which they appear in healthy tissues.

During his investigation the doctor noticed that the changes of atmosphere frequently affected his patients. There were times not noticed by the healthy person when a patient was much worse than at others. The doctor deduced that this is because there is not the great amount of volatile magnetism in the air at the times referred to.

At least the conditions of his patients led him to investigate, and the conclusion followed that there was an unknown power separate from the chemical, operative, but indefinable.

After several years, Dr. Littlefield declares he succeeded in compounding a liquid that absorbed or gathered this force from the atmosphere. This he now calls the volatile magnetism, formed with the salt as its basic feature.

Additional information - The Nucleus (Core) of Life (Dr. C. W. Littlefield - extracts) - This is an excerpt from the work of Dr. Charles W. Littlefield, who was really an outstanding scientist in the field of biology. Read what he wrote about the core that is in the center of each cell, whether visible or not, and note at the bottom of the page, or the time the author lived.

KeelyNet

"Subsequently resulting in an improper belief in the possibility to explain the activity of protoplasm, all vital phenomena, was considered irrelevant the presence of a nucleus in the cell.

This was the scientific attitude in biology, regarding the protoplasm and the cell nucleus, where Professor Huxley wrote his famous essay on "The place of man in nature" and his book "The physical basis of the life."

Since then, cell research methods have been greatly developed and, using microscopes, scientists realized that there was, in the cells, nuclei they had not yet seen. Finally, they came to the conclusion that no one can live without cell nucleus, and we can add that the protoplasm can live itself without one or more cells.

In fact, we can now say that the aged cells having lost all activity no longer have core and, to our knowledge, that all cells have in full operation this important body.

It has been shown, through appropriate experiences that any cell from which the nucleus is removed immediately loses all activity.

Others were cut into various parts, and when these parts contain a nucleus, or only a portion of core, active life still in them, while in the parties having no core, life stopped quickly.

These facts demonstrate conclusively that, as the seat of life is in the kernel and it is the center of the cell life.

This confirms that, for the continuation of life and reproduction, it is in the kernel is the strength of the cell and not in the protoplasm.

Therefore, it 's not true, as liked to say former biologists, the protoplasm is the basis of life."

Dr. Charles W. Littlefield, 1859 - 1945

I also found this; "Fourteen chemical elements enter into the composition of all organized beings, without exception. These are; carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, sulphur, phosphorus, chlorine, potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, iron, fluorine and silicon."

"Experiments will demonstrate that this magnetism, as it exists in water, is latent vital energy, and that the process of evaporation liberates it, and it saturates the mineral compounds that characterize the plant or animal form that is being developed, and becomes the life principle or vital force of that plant or animal."

(I so want a copy of the incredible book Beginning and Way of Life 1919 By Charles Wentworth Littlefield - This is an original edition copy of the work of Dr. Charles Littlefield (very few copies are known to exist). Littlefield demonstrated life-forming activity in the mineral realm, with organic lifeforms actually springing from inorganic matter! While crystallizing inorganic substances he demonstrates the creative power of mind by imprinting thought forms into the "inert" substances. Chapters include: The Vital Force, Crystal Prototypes of plants, The Law of Organic Forms, Fixing Thought-Forms in Matter, and more.

KeelyNet I've long been a fan of Dinshah Ghadiali so wrote up a lot of connected information you might want to read but first let me tell you a great deal for just $14.00 where you can guy the entire 3 volume set in the Dinshah Spectrochrome Encyclopedia condensed down to one book. Its a great investment and has incredible useful information.

World Research Health Books - Spectro-Chrome Metry Encyclopedia - by Dinshah Ghadiali (Hardcover) - $14.00

After fifty years, the Spectro-Chrome Metry Encyclopedia is once again available. The new format has reduced the original three-volume set in one complete volume. For those interested in the science and theory of color therapy, as well as the reason why particular colors are used for various health conditions, this book is a must. Ghadiali stated in the first edition of his encyclopedia, "The unsuspecting public, not knowing the difference between ordinary colors and attuned color waves, used them under the belief they were Spectro-Chromes and the blame of ineffeciency was passed onto my system. Thus, in my defense as well as for the enlightenment of the conscientious student, I publish this work, so the Truth may be revealed and the frauds unmasked."

Here is an article I wrote telling about an Alaskan inventor who showed a light box that had amazing healing properties.

Color therapy using your Plasma/LCD TV - I'll never forget the guy who made a presentation at a Global Sciences Congress probably around 1992 or so. He was from Alaska and had this box, I'll call it the `Alaskan Lightbox', with a viewing window and a hand dial on the site. Inside was nothing but a very bright unfrosted bulb whose light passed through a mirrored column for a focused beam.

There was a wheel that clicked for each of the 7 positions when you turned the dial on the side. At each of the 7 positions was a natural gem to produce all the colors of the rainbow. The beam was directed through the gem and into the eyes of anyone looking into the viewing window. He said he used selected natural gems because of the purity of their colors.

KeelyNet The presenter/inventor said you can think of our cells having little buckets of paint of different colors. When the buckets get low or empty, we get sick, diseased or incapacitated. So by looking into this machine at each of the 7 color frequencies you could `refill' your paint buckets and restore health.

Interesting idea and fits so well with the Multi-Wave Oscillator and magnets where your body absorbs just what it needs and throws off the rest. Well, as at all conferences you find like minds so our little group talked with the inventor later and thought he might have something.

But here is the amazing thing…some of us had been on the same airport to hotel shuttle and when we boarded, this old man who looked about 70 had problems climbing into the shuttle and even walking. He was all bent over and in obvious pain with every movement.

We helped him and on the ride he told us he was from some state up near Canada and had been in terrible health for many years. He had gone to many doctors with no success and a friend told him about this Congress so he figured he had nothing to lose by attending.

We all felt so sorry for him and didn't think he could be a shill (plant by the speaker to testify to some miraculous healing)…we helped him with his bags into the hotel and he said he could make it to his room ok.

And then the presentations so we forgot all about the man. I believe it was the 2nd day into the conference when the Lightbox guy from Alaska, Wayne something…gave his presentation…he didn't test it on anyone, he just explained the theory, workings and said it worked for ALL health problems.

That night we chatted about it while hanging out, but the next morning, we had gotten up an hour or so earlier than the first presentation so were sitting around after breakfast.

We saw this same old man standing straight up…eyes shining, big grin on his face, he looked like a million bucks and we couldn't believe the change, he was walking briskly and clearly not in any pain and feeling great.

He stopped to talk with us and we asked WTF? Did you get laid last night or what? He laughed and said no, he had gone up to the Lightbox guys' room and looked into that machine for about an hour, switching to each of the 7 colors.

He said intially he couldn't even SEE some of the colors as they were beamed into his eyes but as he looked at nothing, the color began to show and eventually he could see it in all its radiance..he said this happened on several colors and by the time he'd viewed all 7, he could see them all now.

He was puzzled and thought it was some trick but the Lightbox guy was nowhere near the machine which sat on the table and had a simple plug into the wall outlet. He said he experienced no immediate effects and shuffled back to his room thinking that didn't work either so he figured this was a wasted trip.

BUT, he said when he woke up this morning, he had no pain and literally jumped out of bed like a kid…he moved around and did some bending to see to what extent he had improved and all his pains for so much of his life were miraculously GONE!

You can imagine all of us sitting there with our jaws dropped as we looked at NIGHT and DAY for this man. I don't know if others tried the machine but this was as close as we got to anyone who had tried it. It made such an impression on me that I never forgot it.

I don't recall him ever offering to sell the Alaskan Lightbox device or copies of it, he was an experimenter who wanted to present his findings and let others try the machine. It was remarkable that he explained all that he did without expectation of financial reward or fear of being ripped off with so many crooks out in the world.

I regret I didn't get a complete list of the gemstones he used, their order in the wheel, the lightsource/wattage and how he measured the gemstone color frequency to sort through sample gems and find the ones that would work best.

KeelyNet Remember the `Breastplate of Aaron', brother of Moses? Twelve stones each set in a gold setting placed on a piece of material, (cloth), nine inches square. Each stone had one of the twelve tribes of Israel engraved on it.

Gem-stones are used in this example, the exact color of the stones is not known since stones can vary greatly in their colors. There were four rows of stones:

1st row: a Sardius, a Topaz and an Emerald.
2nd row: a Turquoise, a Sapphire and Diamond.
3rd row: a Jacinth, a Agate and a Amethyst. 4th row: a Beryl, a Onyx and a Jasper.

Long ago, I read somewhere that an occult secret was the true placement of the stones should be in the form of a cross on the front of the body in a vertical column that lined up with the spine and a bar across the chest.

The claim being that the stones energized the chakras and the heart to produce mentally controlled phenomena. The point here is gemstones somehow linking to bioenergy. Some sites on the net state the breastplate was to be worn in the meeting/speaking place and from the breastplate came the voice of god.

There have always been strange claims about the 'Solar Plexus' having to do with something like the center of gravity of the human body.

KeelyNet

Crystals as acoustic transducers, fascinating! Maybe each crystal, by shape, type and size acted as a sonant filter so when all were stimulated together with high voltage from the Ark of the Covenant they could form a synthetic voice. Who knows?

A bit more of interest…looked up the colors for the 12 gemstones in the Breastplate of Aaron and only 7 of them are transparent;

#1 Topaz blue,
#2 Emerald green,
#3 Sapphire yellow, blue, purple, pink or red,
#4 Diamond blue, yellow, brown, green, purple, pink, orange or red,
#5 Jacinth red,
#6 Amethyst violet, purple,
#7 Beryl green, blue, yellow, colorless, pink & others.

While Onyx, Jasper, Sardius, Turquoise and Agate are not transparent.

Absolutely something occult going on here with exactly 7 being transparent as in the Alaskan Lightbox. So are the other 5 stones that are non transparent just fluff that don't add to the powers attributed to the Breastplate?

A good magician misdirects to confuse the viewer. So too could hidden information be masked by extraneous additions which only those who understood could interpret and know what to cast aside as fluff.

07/14/13 - Transient Environment Phenomena

KeelyNet

How often do you drive the same route to work or home? How long have you lived in a certain location? Now, have you, after all that time, over months, years, even decades ever noticed a structure that you’ve never noticed before? Every year I am confronted by dozens upon dozens of individuals who swear buildings are appearing and vanishing seemingly overnight.

An empty street corner sudden has become home to a fully functioning drive-thru bank or grocery store. A home, by the side of the road, that has be vacant for years suddenly isn’t there. Now, it would be easy to say that the house was demolished or that the bank was built, in this day and age buildings can literally be built or crushed almost overnight.

But what I am questioned, often, about seems to be something far stranger, something I’ve come to call Transient Environment Phenomena.

- A husband and wife who have grown up in a small community, attending its schools working in its civic area notice that where once there had been only a small, acre or smaller, patch of land is now a party story. The signs in the window are aged from years of sunlight, the parking lot riddled with potholes from years of use. When friends and family are confronted about the store everyone has seen it, people have gone there for years, there are even memories of the couple going there and getting cigarettes, but of course these “memories” are coming from the family and not the couple. Both agree they have never seen, noticed or visited the store before.

Over the last 15 years, or longer, I have been contacted with more and more frequency about T.E.P. occurring. Buildings, houses, parks, restaurants, etc. seem to vanish or appear without warning or explanation. Usually only the person who notices the change remembers that something is different. Occasionally one or two others many have a fleeting memory of “something being different” but these cases seem to be rare.

Of course the entire phenomena could simply be a mental aberration on the part of the experiencer(s). Living in the same location or traveling the same roads for a long period of time can dull the senses to changes in the environment. The mind, as we all know, can play tricks… and perhaps that is what is going on.

Or perhaps something else is happening. Is time fluid enough to dissolve and make manifest our personal shared realities? Are certain individuals jumping into alternate universes or dimensions where the differences are only ever so slight?

So, look around, pay close attention because tomorrow is a different day and the world around you is changing all the time and perhaps it’s changing more than you realize.

Dark City (1998) - Dr. Schreber: [voiceover] First there was darkness. Then came the strangers. They were a race as old as time itself. They had mastered the ultimate technology. The ability to alter physical reality by will alone. They called this ability "Tuning". But they were dying. Their civilization was in decline, and so they abandoned their world seeking a cure for their own mortality. Their endless journey brought them to a small, blue world in the farthest corner of the galaxy. Our world. Here they thought they had finally found what they had been searching for. - Full Article Source

07/12/13 - Viktor Schauberger - Comprehend and Copy Nature

KeelyNet

This superb documentary on the work of Viktor Schauberger is worth every minute of your time. It becomes clear that Richard Clem is the American Schauberger with regard to learning to tap energy from non-linear effects, negative resistance and vortices.

Notice how the Repulsine looks so much like the Clem engine original diagram except that Clem use curved tubes to centripetally throw the fluid through the rim jets.

KeelyNet

I wonder if he uses the KUDU antelope horn spiral or Walter Schaubergers' "Tone Tower" hyperbolic cone which is created inside the egg shape.

KeelyNet

The Repulsine blades remind me of a Fresnel Lens. DIY Fresnel reflector - Just like destroying an ant colony with a magnifying glass, there’s nothing like cooking hot dogs and roasting marshmallows with a nice parabolic reflector. Of course covering an old satellite dish with mylar or aluminum tape doesn’t take much skill, however cool it is. [Uwe] came up with a much more technical means of building a Fresnel reflector that will cook your hot dogs in seconds, but only on sunny days.

KeelyNet

[Uwe] channeled a little bit of [Apollonius] when he realized that a flat cardboard ring with a section removed could be joined together into a conic section. The resulting section looks just like one concentric ring in a Fresnel reflector. [Uwe] wrote a small program in Visual Basic to calculate the necessary diameter and angle of his conic sections.

A bit of cardboard was cut out and pieced together with some very reflective aluminum tape. The resulting Fresnel reflector concentrates 117 times the normal solar radiation onto a small point. It’s more than enough to burn holes in construction paper, but we’ll be using a microwave for our lunch today.

Easy Flat-Pack Fresnel Reflector - Fresnel reflectors consist of concentric mirrored rings. Each ring is tilted inward by a precise angle. Any light falling on the ring from above is reflected toward a central focal point. The angle of the tilt needs to be quite precise and this makes the construction of a Fresnel reflector a bit tricky.

At the time I observed that a flat ring of cardboard with a section removed could be joined back together to form a conical ring. This conical section is just what's needed to make a Fresnel reflector. The idea isn't new and others have used this to make their own mirrors but determining the size of rings needed and what sections to remove is difficult. In this post I present a (free) program that you can use to generate an easy cutting guide that will guarantee a working Fresnel reflector.

07/10/13 - Final Clem Engine Photos (5)

KeelyNet

I have added a final page from the Clem family of Richard Clem's famous self running engine which produced a tested 325hp for 7 days. There are many theories about how it operates and I have collected as much as possible on the ClemIndex page.

Teresa Clem died of cancer in November 2011 and had very kindly sent me these final photos which I have now posted for all to study. Sorry for the delay, 2012 was my health issues year (hopefully the last before I prove immortality) and I had misplaced them.

Teresa referred to herself as a redheaded Cherokee. A delightful lady with a sheer Texas personality and excellent sense of humor, both I and Dan really enjoyed our 2 hour meeting with her years ago.

She wanted nothing more out of life than to see her father receive credit for his engine discovery. Teresa loved and respected her father immensely and often wrote of her admiration for him. I really respect that devotion to her father, even though he could not read or write, he was a brilliant self-taught inventor. He actually has a patent for a plant that he engineered, but the engine will make his history and WHEN rebuilt will change the world.

Imagine an engine that runs on cooking oil spun around in a vortex to produce a negative resistance "tornado-in-a-box". From this high speed rotation, you get enormous torque and it runs up to 6 months before needing to replace the oil and filter.

I really appreciate the opporunity to have known this very fine woman and for her sharing what information we have. Rest in Peace Teresa! We will continue the work and make sure your father receives credit for his amazing discovery of how to practically tap into non-linear phenomana. JWD - Full Article Source

07/10/13 - First Hyperlens For Sound Waves Created
KeelyNet Ultrasound and underwater sonar devices could “see” a big improvement, thanks to development of the world’s first acoustic hyperlens. Created by researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), the acoustic hyperlens provides an eightfold boost in the magnification power of sound-based imaging technologies.

Clever physical manipulation of the imaging sound waves enables the hyperlens to resolve details smaller than one sixth the length of the waves themselves, bringing into view much smaller objects and features than can be detected using today’s technologies.

The key to this success is the capturing of information contained in evanescent waves, which carry far more details and higher resolution than propagating waves but are typically bound to the vicinity of the source and decay much too quickly to be captured by a conventional lens.

“We have successfully carried out an experimental demonstration of an acoustic hyperlens that magnifies sub-wavelength objects by gradually converting evanescent waves into propagating waves,” said Xiang Zhang, a principal investigator with Berkeley Lab’s Materials Sciences Division and director of the Nano-scale Science and Engineering Center at the University of California, Berkeley.

“Our acoustic hyperlens relies on straightforward cutoff-free propagation and achieves deep subwavelength resolution with low loss over a broad frequency bandwidth.” Zhang and his co-authors fashioned their acoustic hyperlens from 36 brass fins arranged in the shape of a hand-held fan. Each fin is approximately 20 centimeters long and three millimeters thick.

Keely's "Diatonic Scale Resonator" Spirals
KeelyNet

The fins, embedded in the brass plate from which they were milled, extend out from an inner radius of 2.7 centimeters to an outer radius of 21.8 centimeters, and span 180 degrees in the angular direction.

“As a result of the large ratio between the inner and outer radii, our acoustic hyperlens compresses a significant portion of evanescent waves into the band of propagating waves so that the image obtained is magnified by a factor of eight,” says co-author Fok, a graduate student in Zhang’s lab.

“We chose brass as the material for the fins because it has a density about 7,000 times that of air, a large ratio that is needed to achieve the strong anisotropy required for a flat dispersion of the sound waves.” / (This is PURE KEELY! - JWD) - Full Article Source

07/10/13 - The Cab Ride
KeelyNet I arrived at the address and honked the horn. After waiting a few minutes I walked to the door and knocked.

'Just a minute', answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor.. After a long pause, the door opened. A small woman in her 90's stood before me..

She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, Like somebody out of a 1940's movie. By her side was a small nylon suitcase. The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years. All the furniture was covered with sheets.

There were no clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils on the counters. In the corner was a cardboard box filled with photos and glassware. 'Would you carry my bag out to the car?' she said. I took the suitcase to the cab, then returned to assist the woman.

She took my arm and we walked slowly toward the curb.. She kept thanking me for my kindness. 'It's nothing', I told her.. 'I just try to treat my passengers the way I would want my mother treated'.

'Oh, you're such a good boy', she said. When we got in the cab, she gave me an address and then asked, 'Could you drive through downtown?'

'It's not the shortest way,' I answered quickly.. 'Oh, I don't mind,' she said. 'I'm in no hurry. I'm on my way to a hospice'. I looked in the rear-view mirror. Her eyes were glistening.

'I don't have any family left,' she continued in a soft voice.. 'The doctor says I don't have very long.

'I quietly reached over and shut off the meter. 'What route would you like me to take?' I asked. For the next two hours, we drove through the city.

She showed me the building where she had once worked as an elevator operator. We drove through the neighborhood where she and her husband had lived, When they were newlyweds. She had me pull up in front of a furniture warehouse that had once Been a ballroom where she had gone dancing as a girl.

Sometimes she'd ask me to slow in front of a particular building or cornerm And would sit staring into the darkness, saying nothing..

As the first hint of sun was creasing the horizon, she suddenly said, 'I'm tired. Let's go now'. We drove in silence to the address she had given me. It was a low building, like a small convalescent home, With a driveway that passed under a portico.

Two orderlies came out to the cab as soon as we pulled up.. They were solicitous and intent, watching her every move. They must have been expecting her. I opened the trunk and took the small suitcase to the door. The woman was already seated in a wheelchair.

'How much do I owe you?' She asked, reaching into her purse. 'Nothing,' I said 'You have to make a living,' she answered. 'There are other passengers,' I responded.

Almost without thinking, I bent and gave her a hug. She held onto me tightly. 'You gave an old woman a little moment of joy,' she said. 'Thank you.'

I squeezed her hand, and then walked into the dim morning light. Behind me, a door shut. It was the sound of the closing of a life. I didn't pick up any more passengers that shift. I drove aimlessly lost in thought.

For the rest of that day, I could hardly talk. What if that woman had gotten an angry driver, Or one who was impatient to end his shift? What if I had refused to take the run, or had honked once, then driven away?

On a quick review, I don't think that I have done anything more important in my life.

We're conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments. But great moments often catch us unaware - beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

PEOPLE MAY NOT REMEMBER EXACTLY WHAT YOU DID, OR WHAT YOU SAID ~BUT~THEY WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HOW YOU MADE THEM FEEL.

You won't get any big surprise in 10 days if you send this to ten people. But, you might help make the world a little kinder and more compassionate by sending it on and reminding us that often it is the random acts of kindness that most benefit all of us.

Thank you, my friend... Snopes says this is a true story.

(This reminded me of how delighted my grandmother would be when I'd take her out for a vanilla ice cream cone and drive her around town so she could see the changes. She would tell me her stories and memories of what used to be where and what happened to her there.

My late mother Janie really enjoyed being driven around in her elder years. I would drive her around town and out to the deep country where she grew up and over to Paducah to see what was left of Decker Dairy farm, then the cemetery to pay our respect and to visit my cousin Sybil who always said Aunt Jane (my mom) was her favorite aunt. My mom would tell me all these cool stories about our family, I so regret not thinking to record those stories on audio or video.

When we were in junior and high school, many of our friends were very fond of my mother and would tell my brother, sister and I how they wished their mom was as cool and fun as our mom. Made us proud cause we knew how special she was to many. I would not trade those experiences for blood or money, now 'scuse me, I have to wipe a tear out of my eye.

07/10/13 - Keely and the Physics of Vibration
KeelyNet John W. Keely, discoverer of Sympathetic Vibratory Physics, found a means of negating the effect of gravity as well as developing a form of propulsion.

From 1888 to 1893, Keely worked on developing his system of "Aerial Navigation." The first successful test was in 1893 which led the way to the construction of an aerial craft.

In 1896, Mr. Keely had so perfected his system that he arranged to give a demonstration of the aerial craft to the United States War Department. In attendance at the demonstration were a number of invited members of the press.

Descriptions of the craft state that it was a circular platform roughly 6 feet in diameter. On this platform was mounted a small stool set before a keyboard. The keyboard was attached to numerous tuned resonation plates and vibratory mechanisms.

[Note: We can assume that Keely had some mechanical process, possibly electrical, for keeping the vibratory mechanisms and tuned plates going. This appears to be what created the "polarized field" indicated in the next paragraph below.]

Mr. Keely explained that these plates would cause the craft to rise and float above the ground when subjected to a polarized field which would generate a "negative attraction." When the effect was produced, the craft would come under the influence of [what Keely referred to as] the "etheric polar current."

The controlling mechanism consisted of a row of 100 vibratory bars representing the enharmonic and diatonic scales. When half of the bars were damped the craft would move at 500 miles per hour. If all the bars were damped, gravity would resume control and the craft would settle to the earth.

[Note: Obviously these bars are not the main generators of the sound vibrations; they only change the way the vibrations are flowing through the device by their resonance. Dampening certain bars allowed Keely to make slight changes in the direction of the flow in the CU that was surrounding the craft, thus changing how the craft traveled through Earth‘s gravity.]

There were no moving parts in the ship's propelling mechanism. [Note: However, it is still producing a “polarized field ” somehow to create the main vibrations that allow it to levitate.]

It was unaffected by weather and could rise above any storm. The instrument for guiding the airship was distinctly different from the propelling feature. By damping out certain specific notes, Keely could cause the airship to accelerate to any desired speed.

The experiment was carried out in an open field with observers from the War Department and news media. The ship was said to have accelerated from 0 to 500 miles per hour within a few seconds.

Most astounding was the apparent total lack of acceleration effects to Mr. Keely as he sat on the stool before the keyboard, controlling the airship.

Although the government officials were impressed, they stated [that] they could see no use for such a complex device and so did not pursue the matter further.

When we see that Keely was unaffected by the "g-forces" of inertia as the craft flew, we should immediately be aware of how this would occur. The area around the craft itself was not being affected by the aether as an ordinary object would be.

Thus, as the craft sped through the air, it produced its own energy field that counteracted the natural pressure of the aether around it. Keely felt no acceleration because he was trapped within the spherical bubble of energy that prevented the aether pressure from changing inside. Similarly, many UFO sightings have reported split-second 90-degree turns at speeds so fast that conventional g-forces would completely destroy the body of any pilot inside.

Downward from the Earth‘s surface, [gravity‘s] primary differentiation with depth is accompanied by the progressive decline to zero of the force of gravity at the center of the Earth.

Normal gravitational force, downwardly directed, is replaced by a reversed upwardly directed force at depths greater than 2,700 kilometers (1,678 miles), which would pull matter away from the core. This is especially true because the core is now known to be much hotter than previously thought.

This is why research involving deep mines and boreholes has shown different values for gravity with depth. In fact, a person deep within a mine weighs less than that same person on a mountain top.

KeelyNet

Moreover, those scientists studying the phenomena have called for a new model of the Earth, but long-held theories are not easily dismissed. As a result, the phenomena has been virtually ignored.

So, if this push and pull tug-of-war game is constantly being fought between gravity and levity, then gravity is always slightly winning the game on the Earth‘s surface.

However, since the two forces (gravity versus levity) are actually very close to being in an exact balance with each other, if you can somehow absorb some of the downward-contracting gravitational force without absorbing the up-pressing “levity ” force, then the Earth‘s levity will naturally push you away from its surface, thus creating anti-gravity. - Full Article Source

07/10/13 - Nuclear Energy Is Largely Safe. But Can It Be Cheap?
On a megawatt-per-megawatt basis, nuclear kills fewer people than almost any other source of electricity — especially compared with air pollution from coal, the single biggest supplier of electricity in the U.S., which contributes to the deaths of 14,000 Americans each year. And nuclear energy, unlike every other form of electricity — save hydro and renewables, doesn’t contribute to man-made climate change.

But while nuclear energy supplies about 13% of global electricity — and dozens of new reactors are being built in countries like China, India and Russia — in the U.S. and much of the rest of the developed world, nuclear energy is in retreat, with new reactors on hold and aging ones being retired.

And while fears of accidents and radioactivity clearly play a role in that decline, cost is an even bigger factor. Existing nuclear reactors produce inexpensive electricity, but the price of a new nuclear plant keeps ballooning, with reactors running billions over budget, forcing some utilities to abandon projects in midconstruction.

The key, suggests the Breakthrough Institute in a new report, is the development of entirely new reactor designs, ones that can employ modular, mass-produced components with inherent safety characteristics that eliminate the need for the expensive backup systems that have helped inflate the costs of new plants in the past.

It’s based on a method that worked successfully at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, in Tennessee, in the nineteen-sixties.

Called a molten salt reactor, it eschews rods and, instead, dissolves the nuclear fuel in a salt mixture, which is pumped in a loop with a reactor vessel at one end and a heat exchanger at the other.

In the vessel, the fuel enters a critical state, heating up the salt, which then moves on to the heat exchanger, where it cools; it then travels back to the vessel, where it heats up again.

Heat from the exchanger is used to make steam, and, from this, electricity. At the bottom of the reactor vessel is a drain pipe plugged with solid salt, maintained using a powerful electric cooler. If the cooler is turned off, or if it loses power, the plug melts and all of the molten salt containing the fuel drains to a storage area, where it cools on its own. There’s no threat of a meltdown.

The reactor design could also potentially run off nuclear waste — addressing another problem that holds back atomic expansion. Nor is the molten-salt reactor the only next-generation nuclear design that could be cheaper and safer.

Other designs exist that would cool reactors with lead, sodium or gas. And of course there’s always the great, unfulfilled dream of fusion.

Pollution is choking London’s streets. Alex Schey’s world-beating hybrid engine could fight the fumes — and save bus operators millions...

Alex Schey and his friend Toby Schulz have invented a small hybrid engine that can be fitted to existing diesel buses. Explaining it in smooth sales-pitch mode, like one of the more successful candidates on The Apprentice, he tells me it has huge potential.

“It could save operators £20,000 per bus per year in fuel costs, as well as reduce noise pollution and maintenance. Pedestrians like it because everyone gets annoyed when they get a face full of fumes. In the current economic climate it’s a popular idea. Hybrid buses that save fuel are good for the environment but nobody is buying unless the Government subsidies them because they’re so expensive. Our engine gets around that. We want it to be a success all around the world, but with our company and the engineering based in London.” - Full Article Source

07/10/13 - Invention transforms plain surfaces into low-cost touch screens
Imagine turning a whiteboard, glass window or even a wooden table top into a responsive, touch sensitive surface.

A low cost system developed by Nanyang Technological University (NTU), based on the principles of vibration and imaging that is able to track the movements of multiple fingers and of objects, can do just that.

Retrofitting the system onto existing flat-panel TVs will transform it into new, touch sensitive display screens, at only a fraction of the cost of new touch-sensitive display screens, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars.

Once hooked up to a computer, the modified TV screens can then be used as interactive billboards, mall directories and even as a digital whiteboard which can track what is drawn or written.

“Our innovative system is able to transform surfaces such as wooden tables, aluminium, steel, glass and even plastics into low-cost touch screens. It means in future, you could play computer games or draw sketches on walls or windows since almost all surfaces can be made touch-sensitive with our system,” says Prof Khong.

By using a few low-cost vibration sensors and a specially developed algorithm, the system can pinpoint the location of a light tap on any surface. When further equipped with low-cost web-cameras, this system can also track the movements of multiple fingers or objects on any surface.

Since sound waves propagate through matter at a certain speed, it is possible to derive the location of the touch based on when each sensor picks up the signal, Prof Khong added.

In addition to understanding the mechanics behind solid wave propagation, the scientists had developed a unique signal processing algorithm to figure out the exact location of the initial point of impact. - Full Article Source

07/10/13 - Kashmir scientist set for commercial demonstration of invention
KeelyNet The professor from south Kashmir’s Anantnag town, Barkat Nida, who invented a turbine to generate power from low flowing waters is all set for a commercial demonstration of his invention. The inventor is also going to submit a proposal to the government in which he claims to supply electricity to half of the Anantnag district from a ‘Martand canal’ through his invention.

“Since the machine has been put at trial three times in Martand canal Aishmuqam and all the trials were successful. Now I am going for a commercial demonstration of this latest technology. During the demonstration we will supply the power to some nearby village.

The demonstration will cost at least Rs 10 lakh and I am going to write to Science and Technology for funding. If the department fails to provide funds for the same I will keep on demonstrating my invention even if I will have to sell my assets.”

The innovator said that as per estimate the river can generate 16 MWs of electricity. “The length of the river is 25 kms out of which 16 kms are usable.

To generate the 16 MWs from the river will cost 74 crore rupees for which I have prepared a proposal to be sent to the government in next two weeks. If government approves my project I will ensure that power for half of the district is generated only from 16 kms usable part of the river,” Nida said.

He claimed that if his invention besides putting an end to the power crisis in the state will also provide employment to laks of people.

“In the first phase the invention is going to accommodate nearly 3 lakh youth thus can solve the rising problem of unemployment in the state,” the inventor said.

He said that the state is loosing 14 crore rupees per hour by not utilizing the low flowing water resources. “I can claim with confidence this technology can save the state 14 crore rupees per hour that it is loosing by not utilizing the low flowing water resources like Martand canal. Besides the technology is economical too,” he said. - Full Article Source

07/10/13 - Why Thor's Hammer is on military headstones

KeelyNet

Mjölnir (mee ohl neir) is a weapon of honor and virtue, and a fitting symbol for any noble warrior.

So it’s appropriate that American soldiers can now request the symbol for Thor’s Hammer be placed on their headstone if they die in the line of duty.

But Mjölnir’s path toward becoming an acceptable headstone option wasn’t easy. It practically took the power of Thor to get it there.

In the comics, Mjölnir has many magic properties. It can be hurled incredible distances and then boomerang back into Thor’s hand.

Thor can fly when holding it just by throwing it as hard as he can without letting go of the handle.

It can control all the powers of a storm, including rain, thunder, and lightning.

Upon the side of Mjölnir is an inscription: "Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor."

In Norse mythology, Mjölnir (which means "crusher" or "grinder") is a fearsome weapon that can destroy entire mountains with a single blow.

Even a thousand years ago, Thor was as much a superhero as he is today. "Thor has always been this super popular god," says Jason Pitzl-Waters, a religion-beat journalist and founder of The Wild Hunt, a primary Internet news source covering modern pagan religions and minority faiths.

"When you unearth old Viking treasure troves, you’re always finding icons and other representations of Thor’s hammer there. It’s just the de facto symbol of Nordic faith, and has continued to be iconic through all modern permutations of Odinism."

Thor’s hammer is a noble weapon. Even to modern practitioners of Germanic neopaganism--also known as Odinism--it represents honor, virtue, self-reliance, truthfulness, and strength of personal character. Is it any wonder, then, that Thor’s Hammer is a symbol that a growing number of U.S. soldiers feel drawn toward?

To summarize, Thor’s hammer represents heroism, nobility, self-reliance, and honor. It’s a symbol with a history that extends back a thousand years to pre-Christian Europe. And adherents of Odinism, the religion that Thor’s hammer represents, tend to make natural soldiers.

07/10/13 - US pilots replace paper maps with iPads mini
Pilots of U.S. airbase in Illinois conducted an experiment, having replaced paper aeronautical charts with iPad mini tablets. All information that pilots may need during their work had been installed on the tablet computers in advance.

The experiment, which took place on board the C-21A aircraft, a military version of the passenger Learjet 35, was found to be very successful.

According to the military, the use of iPad mini greatly simplifies the control of the airplane. The tablet is convenient, and required information is quickly displayed on its screen.

In addition, pilots will not have to take paper maps and flight instruction on board - they weigh about 22 kilos. Instead, all the information will be stored on the tablet that weighs only 300 grams. - Full Article Source

07/10/13 - Designing a better home for refugee children
On World Refugee Day, the IKEA Foundation is celebrating its unique partnership with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and Refugee Housing Unit—a partnership to design and build a better home for refugee families.

Many of the shelters currently used in refugee camps often have a life span of as little as six months before the impact of sun, rain and wind means they need to be replaced. However, refugees usually stay in camps for several years.

Not only does this leave vulnerable families even more exposed to the challenges of life in a refugee camp, but it also presents a huge burden to the aid agencies and governments trying to create a more dignified life for the millions of people who have had to flee their own homes.

The prototype of the shelter is now being tested in a refugee camp in Ethiopia. The refugee families who would be making the shelter their homes will have a direct say in how the product is developed, putting their experience at the heart of this collaborative process.

Once UNHCR has gathered input from the families testing the shelter, the team will look at how they can make necessary changes and, hopefully, begin producing the new shelters. - Full Article Source

07/10/13 - Wood Nanobattery Could Be Green Option For Large-Scale Energy Storage
A sliver of wood coated with tin could make a tiny, long-lasting, efficient and environmentally friendly battery.

"Li-ion batteries may be ok for your smartphone, but when it comes to large-scale energy storage, the priorities suddenly shift from compactness and cycling performance (at which Li-ion batteries excel) to low cost and environmental feasibility (in which Li-ion batteries still have much room for improvement).

A new 'wood battery' could allow the emerging sodium-ion battery technology to fit the bill as a long-lasting, efficient and environmentally friendly battery for large-scale energy storage."

Researchers at the University of Maryland have developed a solution to this problem by using a paper-thin layer of wood fibers coated with conductive carbon nanotubes as the base in a sodium-ion nanobattery.

The wood is able to withstand the swelling and contracting of the anode and allows the battery to survive more than 400 charge cycles, which makes it one of the longest lasting nanobatteries.

"The inspiration behind the idea comes from the trees," said Liangbing Hu, an assistant professor of materials science. "Wood fibers that make up a tree once held mineral-rich water, and so are ideal for storing liquid electrolytes, making them not only the base but an active part of the battery."

At the end of the charging cycles, the wood was wrinkled, but still intact. Computer models showed that those wrinkles relaxed the stress in the battery during charging and recharging, creating a flexible and long-lasting battery. - Full Article Source

"After the Economic Development Administration (EDA) was alerted by the DHS to a possible malware infection, they took extraordinary measures.

Fearing a targeted attack by a nation-state, they shut down their entire IT operations, isolating their network from the outside world, disabling their email services and leaving their regional offices high and dry, unable to access the centrally-stored databases.

A security contractor ultimately declared the systems largely clean, finding only six computers infected with untargeted, garden-variety malware and easily repaired by reimaging.

But that wasn't enough for the EDA: taking gross incompetence to a whole new level, they proceeded to physically destroy $170,500 worth of equipment (PDF), including uninfected systems, printers, cameras, keyboards and mice.

After the destruction was halted — only because they ran out of money to continue smashing up perfectly good hardware — they had racked up a total of $2.3 million in service costs, temporary infrastructure acquisitions and equipment destruction." - Full Article Source

07/10/13 - Cincinnati judge orders all speed cameras confiscated
The ruling comes as a result of a contentious legal battle over the speed cameras. Both sides of the case were back before Ruehlman during a contempt hearing June 27, "where the judge ruled that Elmwood Place and the speed camera contractor Optotraffic were in contempt of court," WLWT reported.

During the June 27 hearing, Ruehlman found that his order had been violated in a number of ways. First off, the cameras had been turned back on, though Elmwood Place Police Chief Bill Peskin said during the hearing that they were only used to collect traffic and speed data, not to collect license plate information or to issue new traffic tickets. He also testified that people who had come to the station to pay tickets they had been issued were told that they didn't have to.

"Many people did show up, trying to pay their citation to us," Peskin said, "and we told them that the program was to be suspended and they didn't have to pay the citation."

The thing is, tickets were never meant to be paid to the suburb - though some monies apparently were collected, with some going back to Elmwood Place, according to court testimony.

"The traffic camera company collected the citations, and apparently continued to collect money sent in after the judge's March order," WLWT reported. "There was testimony in court that some $48,000 was collected, with a percentage of that money passed on to the village per the speed camera contract. Optotraffic did not have a representative in court Thursday.

Mike Allen, an attorney who is part of a legal team fighting against the speed cameras, called them a "money grab."

"This offends me as a citizen, it offends me as a lawyer, it offends me on behalf of my clients," Allen said, according to reports. - Full Article Source

07/10/13 - California valley fever is a ‘silent epidemic’ of airborne fungus

KeelyNet

Coccidioidomycosis, known as “cocci,” is an insidious airborne fungal disease in which microscopic spores in the soil take flight on the wind or even a mild breeze to lodge in the moist habitat of the lungs and, in the most extreme instances, spread to the bones, the skin, the eyes or, in Klorman’s case, the brain.

The infection, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has labelled “a silent epidemic,” is striking more people each year, with over 20,000 reported cases annually throughout the Southwest, especially in California and Arizona.

Although most people exposed to the fungus do not fall ill, about 160 die from it each year, with thousands more facing years of disability and surgery. About 9% of those infected will contract pneumonia, and 1% will experience serious complications beyond the lungs.

“I got a bad break,” said Klorman, who preferred a squad car to a desk job until the illness forced his retirement. Now he travels four hours round-trip three times a week so that Johnson can inject a powerful anti-fungal drug into his spinal fluid. In other patients, the disease has been known to eat away ribs and vertebrae.

It destroys lives. Divorces, lost jobs and bankruptcy are incredibly common, not to mention psychological dislocation.

“It destroys lives,” said Johnson, whose daughter contracted a mild form. “Divorces, lost jobs and bankruptcy are incredibly common, not to mention psychological dislocation.”

Once athletic, Deandre Zillendor, 38, dropped from 220 to 145 pounds in two weeks, and lesions erupted on his face and body. “You keep it forever, like luggage,” he said of the disease.

The numbers of cases are underestimated because some states do not require public reporting.

Dr. Benjamin Park, a medical officer with the CDC, said that the numbers of cases are underestimated because some states do not require public reporting. They include Texas, where valley fever is endemic along the Rio Grande. In New Mexico, a 2010 survey of doctors and clinics by the state’s public health department revealed that 69% of clinicians did not consider it in patients with respiratory problems.

Numbers spike when rainfall is followed by dry spells. Many scientists believe that the uptick in infections is related to changing climate patterns. Kenneth K. Komatsu, the state epidemiologist for Arizona, where 13,000 cases were reported last year, said that another factor may be urban sprawl: “digging up rural areas where valley fever is growing in the soil,” he said.

Part of the difficulty is that cocci is “a hundred different diseases,” Johnson said, depending on where in the body it nests. His patients include farm workers, oil field workers and construction workers. - Full Article Source

07/10/13 - Egyptian Hieroglyphics at the origin of the Hebraic language
KeelyNet In 1814, the French linguist Antoine Fabre d’Olivet proved his discovery with the publication of the book “The Hebraic Tongue Restored”.

The impressive study, completed before 1810, had to wait until the Restoration to be published. But also the Catholic clergy came back to power; therefore this publication was put immediately to the Index. For this main reason, along with D’Olivet’s subsequent drifting to mystic philosophy and for the segment of the occultist literature in which the book was placed, this amazing scientific study is still unknown to the scientists of Semitic languages.

This prodigious work of linguistic archaeology is composed by grammar, an etymological root vocabulary, the translation of the first ten chapters of the Creation and copious critical and historical notes. The thesis is widely documented by d’Olivet, who sustained that the Hebraic language comes from the hieroglyphic idiom. The Hebraic language, through its alphabet, expresses the hieroglyphic idiom and through the hieroglyph idiom comes the etymological origin of Hebraic language.

After the Egyptian campaign and 23 years before Champollion, d’Olivet wrote the complete etymological dictionary and restored the Hebraic language and its grammar from the deep alteration caused by LXX.

Anyone who wants can make a simple test of the scientific basis of this translation. We have changed many terms in the new translation, but the new meaning of the terms is the same, every time in every verse in the whole text. The new meaning is confirmed by the phrase which contains it and the new meaning confirms every phrase.

These confirmations, continuous and unfailing, produce the entire new translation, perfect and unassailable from any point of view: grammatical, logical, philological, scientific, religious or historical. In the new translation only the most complex ideas and concepts have been restored, while the simplest ones have remained almost unchanged. - Full Article Source

07/10/13 - Bigger, Fiercer Blazes Expected In West
KeelyNet More heat, more drought, more fuel and more people in the way are adding up to increasingly ferocious fires.

Scientists say a hotter planet will only increase the risk.

More than two dozen wildland fires are burning from Alaska to New Mexico, fueled by triple-digit temperatures and arid conditions. In the Arizona mountain town of Yarnell, a blaze apparently sparked by lightning killed 19 members of an elite firefighting squad who had deployed their emergency shelters Sunday when erratic monsoon winds sent flames racing in their direction.

While no single wildfire can be pinned solely on climate change, researchers say there are signs that fires are becoming bigger and more common in an increasingly hot and bone-dry West.

A draft federal report released earlier this year said climate change is stressing Western forests, making them more vulnerable to fires.

In many places, decades of aggressively snuffing out wildfires also have led to a buildup of fuel ready to ignite. On top of that, more people are living in fire-prone areas near forests, grasslands and shrub lands, which complicates firefighting logistics.

Over the past years, firefighters on the front lines have complained about how flames "go berserk in ways they never used to see," Running said.

Governments also need to rethink the way they deal with fires, which could mean just letting some burn rather than sending fire crews into increasingly intense and unpredictable situations, said University of Montana fire scientist and elite firefighter Carl Seielstad.

"I think it's inevitable," he said. "We're going to have to accept defeat when we're defeated." - Full Article Source

07/10/13 - Fear spreads over 'militarization' of police in USA
KeelyNet Two broad phenomena. One is the militarization of domestic law enforcement. In recent years, police departments have widely adopted military tactics, military equipment (armored personnel carriers, flash-bang grenades) — and, sometimes, the mindset of military conquerors rather than domestic peacekeepers.

The other phenomenon is the increasing degree to which civilians are subject to criminal prosecution for noncriminal acts, including exercising the constitutionally protected right to free speech.

In May, a Texas woman was arrested for asking to see a warrant for the arrest of her 11-year-old son. “She spent the night in jail while her son was left at home,” reports Fox34 News. The son never was arrested.

Also in Texas, Justin Carter has spent months in jail — and faces eight years more — for making an admittedly atrocious joke about shooting up a school in an online chat. Though he was plainly kidding, authorities charged him with making a terrorist threat.

“I broke the law yesterday,” writes George Mason economics professor Alex Tabarrok, “and I probably will break the law tomorrow. Don’t mistake me, I have done nothing wrong. I don’t even know what laws I have broken. … It’s hard for anyone to live today without breaking the law. Doubt me? Have you ever thrown out some junk mail that … was addressed to someone else? That’s a violation of federal law punishable by up to five years in prison.” Tabarrok notes that lawyer Harvey Silverglate thinks the typical American commits “Three Felonies a Day” — the title of Silverglate’s book on the subject.

As The Wall Street Journal has reported, lawmakers in Washington have greatly eroded the notion of mens rea — the principle that you need criminal intent in order to commit a crime. Thanks to a proliferating number of obscure offenses, Americans now resemble the condemned souls in Jonathan Edwards’ “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” — spared from perdition only by the temporary forbearance of those who sit in judgment.

“What once might have been considered simply a mistake,” The Journal explains, is now “punishable by jail time.” And as 20-year-old Elizabeth Daly has now learned, you can go to jail even when the person making the mistake wasn’t you. - Full Article Source

07/10/13 - Rejuvenating blood by reprogramming stem cells
Lund University researchers have succeeded in rejuvenating the blood of mice by reversing, or reprogramming, the stem cells that produce blood.

Stem cells form the origin of all the cells in the body and can divide an unlimited number of times. When stem cells divide, one cell remains a stem cell and the other matures into the type of cell needed by the body, for example a blood cell.

“Some of the changes are irreversible, for example damage to the stem cells’ DNA, and some could be gradual changes, known as epigenetic changes, that are not necessarily irreversible, even if they are maintained through multiple cell divisions. When the stem cells are reprogrammed, as we have done, the epigenetic changes are cancelled.”

The discovery that forms the basis for the research group’s method was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine last year.

The composition of blood is one example of how it ages; blood from a young person contains a certain mix of B- and T-lymphocytes and myeloid cells. “In older people, the number of B- and T-lymphocytes falls, while the number of myeloid cells increases”, said Wahlestedt.

When an elderly person is affected by leukemia, the cancer often has its origin in the myeloid cells, of which the elderly have more. Being able to “restart” the blood, as Martin and his colleagues have done in their studies on mice, presents interesting possibilities for future treatment.

“A critical factor that gives an indication of whether the procedure is going to work or not is the age of the bone marrow donor. By reversing the development of the stem cells in the bone marrow, it may be possible to avoid negative age-related changes.”

The research group is pleased with the results, because they indicate that it may not primarily be damage to DNA that causes blood to age, but rather the reversible epigenetic changes. - Full Article Source

07/06/13 - R.I.P our friend Cleve Backster - July 1, 2013

KeelyNet

Grover Cleveland "Cleve" Backster, Jr. (born February 27, 1924) is a best known for his experiments with biocommunication in plant and animal cells using a polygraph machine in the 1960s which led to his theory of "primary perception." Backster began his career as an Interrogation Specialist with the CIA, and went on to become Chairman of the Research and Instrument Committee of the Academy for Scientific Interrogation. He was director of the Backster School of Lie Detection in San Diego, California. He was born in Lafayette, New Jersey.

Backster's biocommunications work is most famously discussed in The Secret Life of Plants by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird. His work is discussed in his book, published in 2003, titled Primary Perception.[5] The book was translated into Chinese in 2006 and Japanese in 2007.

He was a guest on June 27, 2007 on the popular evening radio show, "Coast To Coast AM", during which he discussed with host George Noory and with callers to the program his experiments with primary perception and findings of an interconnection between all living cells. He had been a guest several times before on Art Bell's Coast to Coast, as well as on Jeff Rense's radio shows, and has presented papers at many international conferences and meetings as well as those in the U.S.A.

Backster's "Primary Perception" theory was a subject of the Discovery Channel television show MythBusters.[6] The team attempted to reproduce Backster's experiments using a polygraph and an EEG machine. It reproduced the plant experiment and initially got the polygraph reaction predicted by Backster's work. The team was unable to coax any measurable response out of yogurt cultures, white blood cells or eggs and the EEG test was also negative. Backster responded on a 2008 radio broadcast of "Coast to Coast AM".[citation needed] Italian public television RAI produced, in 1975, a four parts serial based on Backster's work and titled "La traccia verde" (the green trace).

I visited Cleve in the late 1990s to carry out an experiment to block the RNA/DNA bio-scalar wave. We stayed up all night a few years ago in his lab and I repaired two of his three E-Meters while we talked about primary perception with us both connected to the giant leaves of a philodendron plant between us.

He said it will tell me if you are lying...the meter moved but always for truth...just so.

Cleve worked all night as building security of the jewelry exchange building in San Diego and had, I believe it was the entire 5th floor as part of his pay. This floor had all these lab benches and sinks because it used to be some kind of FBI drug lab or something so Cleve lived there too.

I had found a way to block the bio signal and we were going to test and verify it with his machine and plants...but his assistant missed his flight so we couldn't do it and I had to return to Dallas the next day for my job. Cleve had never found a way to block it so was highly intrigued. We talked all night, really interesting fellow.

Still haven't had a chance to test and verify it but it would stop transmission of all DNA/RNA bio signals...long story but nobody cares but me... He told me he thought all Texans were rich with oil, but the only ones who came to visit him were poor.

I asked him how much it would take to do his favorite project...he said about $50,000 that he wanted to use to test the physical reactions of football players with their living white cells in his lab and them playing a game where it was all videotaped. He also wanted to do a project with astronauts going behind the moon, like Heironymous did on his own using his radionic device.

There are several videos on youtube about Cleve's work with primary perception using plants and people. The most amazing was the In Search of episode where Cleve took a saliva sample, filtered out the oral leukocytes and placed them in a petri dish connected to a chart recorder.

With the dish and recorder taken to another room, the woman was also wired up to a chart recorder. Both sets of electrical signals matched OVER DISTANCE. The most amazing part was when they drove this woman several miles away to a rundown, seedy, dimly lit part of town and put her on the street.

The video shows the woman standing under a single streetlight, nervous and worried while an insert of the bar chart from the spit sample BACK AT THE LAB showed the electrical signals.

When a bum walked up to the lady to beg for money, she became very distraught and nervous and her SPIT, MILES AWAY went crazy with huge spikes indicative of her emotional state at that time. I never forgot that video.

I'll miss Cleve, he was original and an inspiration to many. - Jerry @ Keelynet - Full Article Source

07/06/13 - A possible key to Hubbards coil starting secret?

KeelyNet

In the last update about Dr. Corum's AC battery, I had quoted a piece about the Hubbard coil which contained these peculiar lines;

In general, he says, it is made up of a group of eight electro-magnets, each with primary and secondary windings of copper wire, which are arranged around a large steel core.

The core likewise has a single winding. A coil thus constructed, he says, is lifeless until given an initial impulse. (that is SO Keely's "introductory impulse")

This is done by connecting the ends of its windings for a fraction of a second to an ordinary [two words unreadable R.L.R.] -ing circuit, he says.

The manner of this momentary charging, however, constitutes the principal secret of the device, according to the inventor, who says that while machinists have built a number of coils for him under his direction, they have been unable to "start" them. In the event the power of the coil should diminish, it can be rejuvenated in less than a second, Hubbard says.

Now that got me to thinking about the differences between switching high current AC and DC. In homopolar generators (DC of course) such as the Faraday Disc that put out about 1.5vdc but at amperages of 1,000 amps or higher, the principal energy lost is in the electrical arc through the brushes.

Our group was granted about an hour of private discussion with the Indian genius scientist Paramahansa Tewari and he told us he had developed a way to convert the homopolar energy from DC to AC to allow INDUCTIVE COUPLING and eliminate the arcing problem that wasted so much of the released energy. He was excited about it as were we, but I've not seen anything about it since then and that was maybe 15-17 years ago.

You've seen knife switches that are used to switch high currents? Well, watch the following STUNNING video to show the difference between the switching of AC and DC.

Based on that, I believe the two missing words in the Hubbard paper are ordinary "knife switching" circuit. Not technically correct because the switch is a component OF a circuit but still, it makes sense...you could switch high amperage power AC using a knife switch. I also included a very good tutorial on capacitors since many free energy circuits rely on resonance requiring inductors and capacitors MORESO than resistors. - JWD - Full Article Source


07/06/13 - Bone Conduction to FORCE advertising on riders
KeelyNet "Sky Deutschland is considering a proposal to use bone conduction to broadcast ads to train riders. The idea is that the riders rest their heads against a part of the train, like the train window, and then bone conduction would broadcast ads directly into their ears."

The proposal involves using bone conduction technology, which is used in hearing aids, headphones and Google's Glass headset, to pass sound to the inner ear via vibrations through the skull.

A video for the Talking Window campaign released by Sky Deutschland and ad agency BBDO Germany states: "Tired commuters often rest their heads against windows. Suddenly a voice inside their head is talking to them. No one else can hear this message."

The voice comes from a Sky-branded transmitter made by Audiva that is attached to the train window.

A silent, vibrating window is turned into a completely new audio medium.

A special transmitter releases high-frequency oscillations that are converted into sound in the brain - without any acoustic signals travelling through the ear. - Full Article Source

07/06/13 - Seeing plant health in infrared

KeelyNet

Since the 70s, NASA, NOAA, and the USGS have been operating a series of satellites designed to look at vegetation health around the world.

These satellites, going under the name Landsat, use specialized camera filters that look at light reflecting off chlorophyll to gauge the health of forests, plains, oceans, and even farms.

It’s all very interesting technology, and a few very cool people want to put one of these near infrared cameras in the hands of everyone.

The basic idea behind gauging the health of plants from orbit, or the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, is actually pretty simple: absorb red and blue light (thus our verdant forests), and reflect nearly all infrared light.

By removing the IR filter from a digital camera and adding a ‘superblue’ filter, the NDVI can be calculated with just a little bit of image processing.

The folks behind this have put up a Kickstarter with rewards including a modified webcam, a custom point and shoot camera, and a very low-cost source of one of these superblue filters. Just the thing to see how your garden grows or how efficiently you can kill a houseplant. - Full Article Source

07/06/13 - DIP switch adjusted voltage regulator

KeelyNet

It couldn’t be simpler but you have to admit that a small adjustable portable power supply like this one will be really handy.

The main part of the PSU is an LM317 linear voltage regulator which we’re already familiar with. The output voltage is adjustable based on a voltage divider between two of the pins. The set of eight DIP switches allows you to tweak that voltage divider. Switch number one connects the 9-volt battery connector to the regulator, serving as a power switch.

Each of the other seven switches adjusts the output voltage by 1.5 volts. The output of the regulator connects to your target device using alligator clips which are not in frame above.

[Jason] says he takes this with him when thrift store hunting for cheap electronics. It can mimic most combinations of Alkaline cells letting you power up electronic toys to ensure they work. But we would find it equally useful for getting that early prototype away from the bench supply for testing before finalizing a dedicated portable supply. - Full Article Source


07/06/13 - Bionic ear that can pick up radio signals and turn them into sound
The scientists have devised a way to produce an ear-shaped chunk of silicone mixed with bovine cells and infused with tiny particles of silver that form a coiled antenna. Like any antenna, this one can pick up radio signals that the ear will interpret as sound.

The 3-D ear is not designed to replace a human one, though the research is meant to explore a new method of combining electronics with biological material.

After it's printed, the 3-D ear is soft and translucent. It is cultivated for 10 weeks, letting the cells multiply, creating a flesh color and forming hardened tissue around the antenna.

Manu Mannoor, a graduate student who worked with McAlpine on the project, held up a petri dish in a lab at Princeton last week to show how the process works.

The dish was filled with liquid and a partly cultivated ear, and Mannoor said the cells were secreting a matrix, the space between cells that exists in organisms. 'They make their own living space,' Mannoor said.

Although the new research is just one iteration in the field of cybernetics - an area that looks at combining biology with technology - McAlpine said the research could lead to synthetic replacements for actual human functions, and to a sort of electronic sixth sense.

'As the world becomes a more digital and electronic place, I think ultimately we're going to care less about our traditional five senses,' he said. 'And we're going to want these new senses to give us direct electronic communication with our cellphones and our laptop devices.' - Full Article Source


07/06/13 - Can wetsuits patterned like venomous fish prevent shark attacks?
KeelyNet A shark attack is every surfer's or snorkeler's worst nightmare, and some studies have shown that most oceangoers have at some point been within 10 feet of a shark without knowing it. But what if you could somehow repel sharks by wearing a certain pattern on your wetsuit?

That's the idea behind a new line of rash guards and wetsuits being marketed by the online retailer boatstogo.com. The suits are designed after the patterns on a lionfish, a venomous type of fish popular in aquariums. The striking patterns on a lionfish help protect it by warning predators that it is poisonous, but would such a pattern work if worn by a human?

According to the retailer's website, "the unique color pattern of our Rash Guard mimics the features of highly venomous lion fish, therefore minimizing your chances of being mistaken for a sea lion or any other type of favorite food on the menu of local sharks."

"The large eyes placed in an unnatural location should also confuse and scare off potential predators looking for a quick bite," the site goes on to say.

It's a careful choice of words. The site does not directly claim that the pattern repels sharks so much as confuse or make it more obvious to a shark that you're not on the menu. Though it makes for an interesting conjecture, research on the issue remains scant. - Full Article Source

07/06/13 - Mapping service locates ANY spot on Earth using unique three-word code
The world has been divided into 57 trillion three-metre squared boxes. Service assigns a three-word identifier to each of these locations.

What3words has divided the entire globe into 57 trillion three-metre squared boxes and given each location point a code, or 'address' using three words from the English dictionary.

The w33 pin can be moved around the Google Map and will show the code for the precise point where the pin has been placed. Alternatively, users can search the site for landmarks or addresses to find that location's code. Or three random words can be entered, each separated by a full stop, to find a surprise location. Once a location has been identified it can be shared by email, Facebook, Twitter or GPS systems.

Each point is accurate to two metres - more accurate than postcodes. Three-word codes are easier to remember than GPS coordinates,. Locations can also be customised with a single word accurate to one metre.

A new mapping service could spell the end of the modern-day postcode. The next time you get a phone call from a lost delivery driver or lose friends at a festival or in a crowd you can send them your precise location - with an accuracy of two metres - using a unique three-word code.

What3words has divided the entire globe into 57 trillion three-metre squared boxes and given each location point a code, or 'address' using three words from the English dictionary.

For example, the code 'limit.broom.flip' takes you to a precise spot in the centre of London's Regents Park. The Statue of Liberty is located at 'planet.inches.most'.

The w3w pin can be moved around the Google Map and will show the code for the precise point where the pin has been placed. Alternatively, users can search the site for landmarks or addresses to find that location's code. Or three random words can be entered, each separated by a full stop, to find a surprise location.

Once a location has been identified it can be shared by email, Facebook, Twitter or GPS systems.

What3words is available on web browsers as well through Android and iOS apps.

The London-based startup set up the site as a more accurate alternative to the current postcode, street and street number combination.

When new houses are built, for example, it can take months for the postcode to be added to satellite navigation and other systems. Off-road locations can be difficult to plot, too.

The service also wanted to introduce an address system that works anywhere in the world - current postcodes and addresses differ from one country to the next. Although GPS services can already accurately pinpoint any location on Earth, the what3words service also makes it easier to remember than complicated coordinates.

'We’ve devised a way to describe exact locations – anywhere in the world – in a simple and memorable way.'

If users want an even more accurate location, to one metre, the company is also selling OneWord codes. For example, buyers could rename the 3m x 3m square on which their front door is located as *thejonesresidence. Businesses might buy a unique branded OneWord for each of their premises.

Car clubs, for example, could purchase *sharecar1, *sharecar2 and so on. OneWords cost 99p a year and can be any word the buyer choses, preceded by an asterisk.

07/06/13 - Telescopic Contacts With Switchable Magnification for AMD Patients
KeelyNet "Age-related macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness among older adults in the western world. Unfortunately, conventional optical aids provide little help for a retina which has lost the acuity of its central area.

Now a team of multinational researchers led by University of California, San Diego Professor Joseph Ford has created a telescopic contact lens that can switch between normal and magnified vision to offer AMD patients a relatively unobtrusive way to enhance their vision."

“For a visual aid to be accepted it needs to be highly convenient and unobtrusive,” says co-author Eric Tremblay of the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland. A contact lens is an “attractive compromise” between the head-mounted telescopes and surgically implanted micro-telescopes, according to Tremblay.

The design of the switching magnification contact lens is really very clever. As shown in the following image, the annular optical path of the 2.8X telescopic lens is folded back on itself four times before being relayed into the eye.

An unobstructed central portion about 2.2 mm in diameter provides the light for 1X vision. The complex and precise shape of the contact lens is made by diamond turning, a procedure that yields optical surfaces ready for use.

Switching between the two modes is accomplished by using special glasses to change the polarization of the incoming light. These glasses, which are worn with the contact lens, have a linear polarizer backed by a liquid crystal optical element that rotates the polarization when a voltage is applied.

When the light polarization emerging from the liquid crystal element is aligned with that over the central aperture, only light hitting that central aperture enters the contact lens, with the result being an unmagnified view.

If the control voltage is changed so that an additional 90 degrees of polarization shift occurs, then light will only enter the contact through the magnified annulus, giving a 2.8X magnified view.

The switch is very rapid, and inconspicuous to one's companions, unless they are wearing polarized sunglasses. - Full Article Source

07/06/13 - Bacterial Tuning Forks?
KeelyNet "A patient admitted to a hospital with a serious bacterial infection may have only a few hours to live. Figuring out which antibiotic to administer, however, can take days.

Doctors must grow the microbes in the presence of the drugs and see whether they reproduce. Rush the process, and they risk prescribing ineffective antibiotics, exposing the patient to unnecessary side effects, and spreading antibiotic resistance.

Now, researchers have developed a microscopic 'tuning fork' that detects tiny vibrations in bacteria.

The device might one day allow physicians to tell the difference between live and dead microbes—and enable them to recognize effective and ineffective antibiotics within minutes."

The research involves tiny, flexible bars called cantilevers that vibrate up and down like the prongs of a tuning fork when they receive an input of energy.

Cantilevers are an important part of atomic force microscopy, which is useful for making atomic scale resolutions of surfaces for use in nanotechnology or atomic physics research.

In this technique, a minute needle attached to a cantilever moves across a surface, and the deflection of the cantilever gives information about how atoms are arranged on the surface. It can even be used to shunt atoms around. More recently, however, they have been used without the needle as tiny oscillators, allowing scientists to investigate matter directly attached to the cantilever.

Biophysicist Giovanni Longo and colleagues at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne and the University of Lausanne in Switzerland immersed these cantilevers in a liquid bacterial growth medium and monitored their movement using a laser.

They found that the bare cantilever moved very slightly as a result of the thermal movement of the liquid molecules in the medium. They then covered both sides of the cantilever with Escherichia coli bacteria, which can cause food poisoning, and immediately found that the oscillations became much more pronounced.

The researchers believe that chemical processes that occur inside the bacteria as they metabolize energy are driving the oscillation. "What we see is that if you have some sort of a moving system on the cantilever, you are going to induce a movement on the cantilever itself," Longo explains. "Exactly what kind of metabolic movement we see is something that we are still studying."

To determine if the cantilevers could detect the impact of drugs, the team added ampicillin, an antibiotic that the cultured bacteria were sensitive to. The size of the cantilever's oscillations decreased almost 20-fold within 5 minutes, the researchers report online today in Nature Nanotechnology.

Fifteen minutes later, the scientists flushed the antibiotic out with fresh growth medium, but the movement of the cantilever did not increase again. This, the researchers say, suggests that the antibiotic had killed the bacteria.

When they used an ampicillin-resistant strain of E. coli, however, they found that the oscillations initially decreased but returned to normal within about 15 minutes, indicating that the microbes had recovered.

They are also thinking beyond the clinic. "Our dream is to send something like this to Mars to see if there is life," Longo says. "It's much faster than any other technique one can imagine—you just put some of the martian dirt inside the liquid and whatever attaches to the cantilever, if it moves it's alive." - Full Article Source

07/06/13 - Electric Vehicles Might Not Benefit the Environment After All
"From an article in IEEE's Spectrum magazine: 'Upon closer consideration, moving from petroleum-fueled vehicles to electric cars begins to look more and more like shifting from one brand of cigarettes to another.

We wouldn't expect doctors to endorse such a thing. Should environmentally minded people really revere electric cars?'

The author discusses the controversy and social issues behind electric car research and demonstrates what many of us have been thinking: are electric cars really more environmentally friendly than those based on internal combustion engines?"

The hope, of course, is that electric-car technology and power grids will improve and become cleaner over time. Modern electric-car technology is still quite young, so it should get much better.

But don’t expect batteries, solar cells, and other clean-energy technologies to ride a Moore’s Law–like curve of exponential development.

Rather, they’ll experience asymptotic growth toward some ultimate efficiency ceiling. When the National Academies researchers projected technology advancements and improvement to the U.S. electrical grid out to 2030, they still found no benefit to driving an electric vehicle.

If those estimates are correct, the sorcery surrounding electric cars stands to worsen public health and the environment rather than the intended opposite.

But even if the researchers are wrong, there is a more fundamental illusion at work on the electric-car stage. - Full Article Source

In a recent paper, Canavero outlines a procedure modeled on successful head transplants which have been carried out in animals since 1970.

The one problem with these transplants was that scientists were unable to connect the animals' spinal cords to their donor bodies, leaving them paralyzed below the point of transplant.

But, says Canavero, recent advances in re-connecting spinal cords that are surgically severed mean that it should be technically feasible to do it in humans.

07/06/13 - Body-heat powered flashlight takes teen to Google Science Fair
A hollow flashlight powered by the heat from a user's hand, designed by a 15-year-old girl from Victoria, has been picked for the finals of the Google Science Fair.

Ann Makosinski, a Grade 10 student at St. Michaels University School in Victoria, is one of 15 students from around the world who beat out thousands of entries from more than 100 countries to earn their spot as finalists.

While researching different forms of alternative energy a few years ago, she learned about devices called Peltier tiles that produce electricity when heated on one side and cooled on the other. She experimented with such tiles for her Grade 7 science fair project and thought of them again as a way to potentially capture the thermal energy produced by the human body.

Makosinski did some calculations to see if the amount of energy produced by warmth from a person's hand was theoretically sufficient to power an LED bright enough to use in a flashlight, and she found it was more than enough.

She bought Peltier tiles on eBay and tested them to see if they could produce sufficient power to light an LED. It turned out the power was more than enough, but the tiles generated only a fraction of the voltage needed. Further research suggested that if she made some changes to the design of the circuit, transformers could be used to boost the voltage.

Makosinski admitted there were points in the experiment when she thought it would never work, but said "You just kind of have to keep going."

She spent months doing research on the internet, experimented with different circuits and even built her own transformers, which still didn't provide enough voltage.

"This took quite awhile 'cause I had to do it during the school year as well and I had homework, plays, whatever that I was also doing," she recalled.

In the end, she came across an article on the web about energy harvesting that suggested an affordable circuit that would provide the voltage she needed when used with a recommended transformer, she said in an online report submitted to Google. Finally, the circuit worked.

Makosinski made two different flashlights, each using a slightly different kind of Peltier tile, by assembling the electronics with other parts:

An aluminum tube, obtained from a mechanical shop at the University of Victoria, where her father works as a laboratory manager. The aluminum was used to transfer the cooler temperatures of the air to one side of the Peltier tiles.

A PVC tube from Home Depot used to house the aluminum tube, with an opening cut in it to allow a person's hand to come in contact with the other side of the Peltier tiles.

Makosinski tested the flashlights and found that both were brighter when the air temperature was 5 C than when it was 10 C, due to the bigger difference between body temperature and the air temperature. But even at 10 C, both flashlights maintained a steady beam of light for over 20 minutes, she reported.

In all, the materials for each flashlight cost about $26, she said, but she thinks that if it were mass produced, it could be manufactured and sold for a far lower price. - Full Article Source

07/06/13 - Underground 'Wind Mines' Could Keep Datacenters Powered
"Major IT vendors have been including custom-built wind- and solar-power farms in their datacenter construction plans. But while wind and solar power may be clean, they're often unreliable, especially by the standards of datacenters that need a way to keep operating through any unexpected surges or drops in power.

How about saving the wind that generates the power? That might work, according to researchers at the federal Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), and U.S. Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. A study published in February (PDF) outlined the potential benefit of pumping pressurized air into caverns deep underground as a way to store wind energy, then letting it out whenever demand spikes, or the wind drops, and the above-ground facilities need help spinning enough turbines to keep power levels steady.

The technique, called Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) isn't new: existing CAES plants in Alabama and Huntorf, Germany (built in 1991 and 1978, respectively) store compressed air in underground salt caverns hollowed out by solution mining (pumping salt-saturated water out of concentrations of salt buried far underground and replacing it with fresh water).

But implementing such a technique for datacenters might take a little work. The BPA and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have already identified, and are evaluating, sites in the Pacific Northwest that would be suitable for CAES underground reservoirs; the first, which could be located in Washington's Columbia Hills could—via existing CAES technology—store enough compressed air to generate a steady 207MW for 40 days of continuous usage, ultimately delivering 400 additional hours without adding any compressed air." - Full Article Source

07/06/13 - USPS Logs All Snail Mail For Law Enforcement
The NY Times reports on a program in use by the United States Postal Service that photographs the exterior of every piece of mail going through the system and keeps it for law enforcement agencies. While the volume of snail mail is dropping, there were still over 160 billion pieces of mail last year.

"The Mail Isolation Control and Tracking program was created after the anthrax attacks in late 2001 that killed five people, including two postal workers. Highly secret, it seeped into public view last month when the F.B.I. cited it in its investigation of ricin-laced letters sent to President Obama and Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. It enables the Postal Service to retroactively track mail correspondence at the request of law enforcement. No one disputes that it is sweeping."

This is in addition to the "mail covers" program, which has been used to keep tabs on mailings sent to and from suspicious individuals for over a century. "For mail cover requests, law enforcement agencies simply submit a letter to the Postal Service, which can grant or deny a request without judicial review.

Law enforcement officials say the Postal Service rarely denies a request. In other government surveillance program, such as wiretaps, a federal judge must sign off on the requests. The mail cover surveillance requests are granted for about 30 days, and can be extended for up to 120 days.

There are two kinds of mail covers: those related to criminal activity and those requested to protect national security.

The criminal activity requests average 15,000 to 20,000 per year, said law enforcement officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are prohibited by law from discussing the requests. The number of requests for antiterrorism mail covers has not been made public." - Full Article Source

07/06/13 - Mystery Intergalactic Radio Bursts Detected
"Astronomers were on a celestial fishing expedition for pulsing neutron stars and other radio bursts when they found something unexpected in archived sky sweeps conducted by the Parkes radio telescope in New South Wales, Australia.

The powerful signal, which lasted for just milliseconds, could have been a fluke, but then the team found three more equally energetic transient flashes all far removed from the galactic plane and coming from different points in the sky.

Astronomers are at a loss to explain what these flashes are — they could be a common astrophysical phenomenon that has only just been detected as our radio antennae have become sensitive enough, or they could be very rare and totally new phenomenon that, so far, defies explanation."

Whatever triggered the bursts has come and gone. The signals, detected between February 2011 and January 2012, were one-time events so little follow-up work can be done.

What is known is that in just a few milliseconds, each of the signals released about as much energy as the sun emits in 300,000 years.

“They have come such a long way that by the time they reach the Earth, the Parkes telescope would have to operate for 1 million years to collect enough to have the equivalent energy of a flying mosquito,” astronomer Dan Thornton, with the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom, wrote in an email to Discovery News.

Scientists have all kinds of theories about what exotic phenomena may have triggered the bursts. The contenders include colliding magnetars, which are neutron stars with super-strong magnetic fields; evaporating black holes; and gamma ray bursts that involve a supernova.

Similar radio signals have been found before, but astronomers could never nail down whether they came from inside or beyond the galaxy. - Full Article Source

07/06/13 - Space Traffic May Be Creating More Clouds
"Rocket traffic may be adding water to the Earth's mesosphere, leading to more very high clouds in this layer of thin air on the edge of space. From the article: 'A team of researchers looking for an expected decrease in the number of clouds in this layer, as solar activity and heating have ramped up, were instead surprised to find an increase in the number and brightness of clouds in this near-outer-space region over the last two years. ...

The source of the water to make the clouds is a puzzle, Siskind explained, because there is not much sign of it coming up into the mesosphere. On the other hand, rockets and, until recently, shuttles roaming in space could rain water exhaust down into the mesosphere.'"

the clouds themselves are not particularly important, since they do not necessarily create any special hazards. They could, however, be indicators of changes in the mesosphere related to rising carbon dioxide levels.

More CO2 is expected to cool the mesosphere -- just the opposite of the effect in the lower troposphere, where weather happens and we all live.

Other researchers working on the mesosphere were equally surprised by the discovery of the clouds bucking the expected trend, and agree that a top suspect is rocket exhaust.

The increase in clouds "was very surprising," said Hanli Liu of the National Center for Atmospheric Research. "You do expect a decrease in the clouds."

But this is what makes it such an interesting place to study, he added. “It’s special because the mesosphere is a crossover region between the atmosphere and space.” And so it is sensitive to changes in both. - Full Article Source

07/01/13 - The Archetype Mind Lense
KeelyNet Who or What do you wish to communicate with? Isn't that an intriguing question?

The Archetype Mind Lense software uses advanced psychological techniques to teach you to use your own mind to derive your answers.

Once you understand the principles involved, with practice you can use this software to improve your life on many levels; work, family, romantic relationships, monetary concerns, your future, basically many levels of advice that comes with regular use of the Archetype Mind Lense software.

The more you know, experience and learn, the easier it is for you to evoke useful answers for questions that concern you by using this amazing software.

KeelyNet With first use, the answers you receive will likely not be of much use, but over time, as you use the program and build the connections, you will settle into a pattern of relaxation and openness to new information.

In a way, when you create an Archetype, you create a sub-mind within your own mind.

Like a child who learns from attention, this sub-mind (Archetype) also learns and grows, improving its knowledge and ability to communicate with you over time.

Each Session communicating with the Archetype of your choice can be recorded for later study and includes a print feature.

It allows for multiple users by storing their sessions in filenames of their choice.

You can invite your friends over to take turns using your copy of the Archetype Mind Lense program to discuss and share your results. Even have a party and experiment with various Archetypes and questions.

The more you call forth and dialogue with a specific Archetype with its unique attributes, the more connections you build in your mind and between other spheres of consciousness.

One view of this process is you are setting aside a portion of your brain (kind of like partitioning a computer hard drive) which you bring to life as an Archetype.

KeelyNet With each use of a given Archetype (you create with its own unique attributes acting as information filters), that portion of the brain is stimulated to increase its connections, insights and it's ability to more easily gather information and filter it (based on the Archetype Attributes) to communicate with and pass information to you.

07/01/13 - Dr. James Corum RPM Invention stores AC power as real AC power

KeelyNet

The Technology Development Division of Texzon Utilities (Texzon in Red Oak, Texas), an energy company, announced that the Australian Patent and Trademark Office issued Patent No. 2006216973 for the Ring Power Multiplier (RPM), a power conditioning and energy storage device. The RPM is a NASA-tested technology that offers continuous, instantaneous power protection, a breakthrough solution for worldwide grid stability by virtue of its ability to store AC power.

KeelyNet "The RPM will be a critical component for increasing the amount of green energy on our electricity grids," said General Mike Miller, Texzon CEO. "Dr. Corum has pioneered a remarkable technology."

In addition to stabilizing the grid, the RPM offers a practical way to accelerate the integration of renewable resources, like wind and solar - into the grid, by virtue of its ability to store AC power as real AC power at 50/60 Hz, making it instantaneously and continuously available.

(I could not help but remember Scott McKie and his PODMOD - United States Patent - 5,146,395 - Inventor - Scott McKie - Filed - August 9, 1991

KeelyNet


The " '93 specs" consist of a device designed with two resonant tank circuits--so called because they are able to store an electrical charge-- operating alternately. The first circuit can be made to simultaneously charge the second and send electric current out for other uses. The circuits can then be switched so the second recharges the first while also sending current out for other uses.

McKie thinks that if properly devised, the two circuits will produce more power than the total amount of power it took to set them in motion. Going "over unity," this is called. He thinks, in fact, the power can be amplified many thousands of times and the device can be disconnected from the power source that started it and continue running. McKie thinks such a system could operate indefinitely.

"In the field of electronics that sends them ballistic," he said.

McKie first achieved the over-unity effect accidentally in 1982 when he was working on a wind-turbine design for Bonneville Power. Trying to figure out what happened, and why, has shaped most of his life since. He duplicated the effect with a different electrical generator in 1984 and has, in some sense, been trying to do it again ever since.

He received a U.S. patent for the idea last year, constructed a working model, took that model apart and is now trying to convert the whole thing to solid-state electronics. The device he is now building, on a workbench the size of an espresso cart in his garage, is about as unprepossessing as you can get. It is a cardboard box sparely furnished with circuit boards and voltage meters. The whole thing is approximately a foot square, about the size of a bread box.

It uses no fuel. There are no moving parts. Inside the box are a pair of tank circuits, electric circuits that include both a capacitor--basically, an electrical storage unit--and an inductor -- basically, a coil. It is the interaction of the capacitor and the inductor that McKie supposes creates resonance.

And of course this resonant augmentation of power is what the Hubbard Coil claimed to do by using one central primary core surrounded by eight secondaries which mirrored the power for augmentation.

KeelyNet

While the device has been patented, the claims for it are so broad that Hubbard says he does not feel safe in making public his secret. In general, he says, it is made up of a group of eight electro-magnets, each with primary and secondary windings of copper wire, which are arranged around a large steel core.

The core likewise has a single winding. A coil thus constructed, he says, is lifeless until given an initial impulse. This is done by connecting the ends of its windings for a fraction of a second to an ordinary[two words unreadable R.L.R.] -ing circuit, he says.

The manner of this momentary charging, however, constitutes the principal secret of the device, according to the inventor, who says that while machinists have built a number of coils for him under his direction, they have been unable to "start" them. In the event the power of the coil should diminish, it can be rejuvenated in less than a second, Hubbard says.

The last few times Scott emailed me, he had health problems and I've not heard from him in many years, but how could anyone forget the PodMod or this fascinating inventor? - JWD - Full Article Source

KeelyNet I detest Tesla motors and that vain, media seeking excuse of an owner, Neon Slug...

I hope they go broke and bankrupt and WHEN it happens I'll go to the nearest bar and get drunk in celebration.

So many FAR SUPERIOR electric car companies have gone broke because they didn't have the financing and business support structure the Slug gets for his motor company.

For the Slug to use Teslas' name just as a hook to sell his sh***y cars is not in the least respectful..what next, Einstein Scooters, Schauberger Pumps, LeBon Chocolates, Keely Tuning Forks, etc...ad nauseum.

The Slug hoped using the Tesla name would give him instant, undeserved street cred and he was right...all those dim people who are in the Tesla Church went along with it like a donkey following the carrot...really pathetic.

So the sooner they crash and burn, the happier I'll be...that'll teach the Slug to EARN his cred ON HIS OWN and not slap on a famous name to try to bolster his inflated ego.

Thanks Gary for the invite, but I'll pass on this idiotic project...JWD - Full Article Source

KeelyNet

The goal here is to recreate the portion of the movie "Thunderball" Where Sean Connery as 007 uses a Jetpack to escape the men chasing him. To achieve this, a super-size quad-copter had to be created to deal with the weight of a mannequin (in this case a very special 2.2lb one). This custom copter is based on the multiwii open source project. It can hover for 8 minutes delivering 1KW+ to the 4 motors. A floating brick in the sky, when not pulling mannequins, it can deliver pizza or 6-packs. There is work to do, the 3D mag heading calibration needs adjustment. Sean needs a face and helmet. Also a decorative jetpack will complete the look. Altitude regulation is not handled well by a barometer, so sonar will be added to the control loop. - Full Article Source

07/01/13 - Ion Thruster runs Five and a half years nonstop
"Last December, NASA's Evolutionary Xenon Thruster (NEXT) passed 43,000 hours of operation. But the advanced ion propulsion engine wasn't finished.

On Monday, NASA announced that it has now operated for 48,000 hours, or five and a half years, setting a record for the longest test duration of any type of space propulsion system that will be hard to beat."

Developed under NASA's Evolutionary Xenon Thruster (NEXT) project, the engine now holds the record for the longest test duration of any type of space propulsion system.

NEXT is a solar electric propulsion system where electricity from the spacecraft’s solar panels is used to power a a 7-kW class ion thruster.

In this, particles of xenon gas are electrically charged and then accelerated to speeds up to 90,000 mph (145,000 km/h). Such thrusters have already been used on spacecraft, such as NASA’s Dawn probe, and engineers are very interested in them because of their much higher performance compared to conventional chemical rocket engines.

The test was carried out in a vacuum chamber at NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, where the NEXT thruster continually fired day and night. In December, it had already passed 43,000 hours of operation and when it passed 48,00 hours it had consumed 1,918 lb (870 kg) of xenon propellant and generated a total impulse that would take over 22,000 lb (10,000 kg) of conventional rocket propellant for comparable applications.

NASA hopes to use NEXT or some version of it in a wide range of deep space missions. The thrust made by an ion engine is tiny compared to a chemical rocket, but its very high efficiency combined with its ability to fire for years on end means that it can build up astonishing speeds over time. As for the test model, it is on its way to a well-deserved retirement as it is switched off. - Full Article Source


07/01/13 - Australian Invention Could Revolutionise Solar Energy Storage
KeelyNet ANU researchers have developed a material that can store large amounts of power rapidly - and with very little energy loss.

Based on the mineral rutile, it is a 'dielectric' material; which are used in the construction of capacitors.

The researchers say their material is superior to current capacitors in energy absorption, is cheaper to manufacture and can function effectively in a massive temperature range: -190°C to 180°C.

"With further development, the material could be used in ‘supercapacitors’ which store enormous amounts of energy, removing current energy storage limitations and throwing the door wide open for innovation in the areas of renewable energy, electric cars, even space and defence technologies," says Associate Professor Liu of the ANU Research School of Chemistry.

Aside from use in electric cars, co-author of a paper detailing the new material, Professor Ray Withers, says capacitors based on the material could be particularly useful in conjunction with wind and solar power generation.

Rutile is a mineral composed primarily of titanium dioxide. The main uses of rutile to date have been as a pigment and for the production of titanium metal. Titanium dioxide is also used in sunscreen because of its ability to reflect UV light and in Dye Sensitised Solar Cells (DSC).

Australia has the largest known reserves of the mineral and supplies around 25 per cent of the world's rutile. According to the Australian Mines Atlas, Victoria has the largest share of Australia’s inferred rutile resources with 62.9% followed by NSW (22.7%), SA (4.8%), Qld (4.7%) and WA (4.7%).

Australia’s Economic Demonstrated Resources of rutile represented the world’s largest economic resources in 2011 (50%). In 2011, Australia produced, 474 000 tonnes of the mineral. The image shows needles of rutile protruding from a quartz crystal.

The main uses for rutile are the manufacture of refractory ceramic, as a pigment, and for the production of titanium metal. Rutile is widely used as a welding electrode covering. It is also used as a part of the ZTR index, which classifies highly weathered sediments. - Full Article Source

07/01/13 - Railguns, weapons of future
KeelyNet Engineering thought is making cautious steps towards practical implementation of weapons based on new physical principles, and it exists mainly in the form of laboratory facilities. But the "top three" have been defined - it's a laser, Gauss gun, and a railgun, or "mass accelerator."

A "railgun" and "Gauss" are closest to our long-held beliefs about weapons. The target is hit by a material shell instead of "death rays" whose action is limited primarily by the Earth atmosphere, and the fact that the human body is more than 70% water and it is difficult to heat it with a ray.

Electromagnetic weapons capable of throwing a projectile at a speed of nearly nine times greater than the speed of sound provide a number of advantages in comparison with the "traditional" firearms.

Acceleration of a projectile is achieved when a bullet made of electrically conductive material passes through a series of coils generating magnetic field. In the context of a home project that can drive a nail into a darts target from a distance of several meters it looks impressive, but the efficiency is extremely low (2.1 percent).

Even when using a multi-stage acceleration system with sequential switching of coils, only 27 percent of the charge is transferred into kinetic energy (for comparison - in the modern firearms it is 30-35 percent). Rather high consumption of energy coupled with a greater weight of the device and relatively low speed of the booster shell makes the development of a "Gauss" a hopeless case, at least at the current level of technology.

The scheme of rail accelerators gives weapons designers of the future much more advantages over gunpowder, primarily because of the possibility to accelerate ultra-small masses to ultra-high speeds. In general, the scheme looks like this: along two electrodes connected to a power source, a projectile is accelerated by the power of the electromagnetic field, at the same time closing the circuit. The very principle according to which electrical energy is converted into kinetic energy in physics is called the "Lorentz force".

The fact that the era of weapons without powder was on the horizon was first mentioned only after December 10, 2010, when the U.S. successfully tested a railgun developed by BAE Systems with a capacity of 33 megajoules with initial velocity of 2,520 m/s. Since then, the prototype shot over ten thousand times (a video is available on Youtube). There are talks about the installation of the first generation of these types of guns on destroyers DDG-1000 Zumwalt.

Velocity of the projectile in the future will increase to 5.8 thousand m/s, fire rate - up to 6-15 rounds per minute, and range precision - up to 370 kilometers. The power will be increased to 64 megajoules of energy, and the device will consume at least 16 MW, which is significant even by the standards of ship 72 MW gas turbine generators. In the meantime, a power unit required for producing a railgun shot takes up a small room in the Development Center of the U.S. Navy Dahlgren, where tests are being conducted. Judging by the fact that the program has not yet been brought under the military budget the results were considered significant and the emergence of rail guns in service with the U.S. Navy can be expected in 10-15 years.

In Russia rail weapons are developed by scientists from Shatourskiy branch of the Joint Institute for High Temperatures. They chose a path different from the American one.

The creators of the national "rails" decided not to reinvent the wheel and in order to solve the issue of energy supply unit proposed a solution reminiscent of common artillery shells. The role of a cartridge with gunpowder in the "railgun of Artsimovich" is played by a magnetic explosion generator. Its complete combustion creates a powerful electromagnetic pulse required to break the shell with the Lorentz force.

Inside the generator is another gun, this time electro-thermal one, where the shell was originally placed. It is different from the railgun because it does not have a "rail", and acceleration is achieved by means of the pressure created by the instantaneous release of a high-temperature plasma.

A bullet cast of polymer pellet weighing only 2 grams breaks through several targets made of alloy of steel with duralumin set next to each other, leaving huge ragged holes in each of them.

Employees of the Shatura branch suggested using their cartridges separately from the railgun as combat units of anti-aircraft missiles. This would make it possible not only to inflict physical damage to air targets, but also burn all their electronic "stuffing" with an impulse from the detonation explosion generator.

The parts of the American guns are made of silver plated oxygen-free copper, and after every two or three shots they have to be changed, so the rate of 10-15 rounds per minute can be achieved only in theory.

In addition, it is not clear what material would be appropriate for shells given that even the most heat resistant materials at a speed exceeding 7500 m/s are destroyed by the friction with the air, turning into plasma clots. Completely different guidance systems and sights suitable for solving the issue of "hitting a bullet with a bullet" will have to be created. That's plenty of work. - Full Article Source

07/01/13 - Dellschau and old, odd flying stuff
KeelyNet I can always tell the quality of an article based on accuracy...both of those are horrible. Firstly misspelling Keely as Keeley and getting some of other details about Dellschau wrong.

I brought all this to light after talking with an old UFO guy who asked me if I ever heard of the Sonora Aero Club...a brief description was all he had so I was big into UFOs back then, the TECHNOLOGY of UFOs, not the simpletons who chased every light like penguins following a flashlight beam.

I found Jimmy Ward who hooked me up with Pete Navarro and thats where I got the aero6 and higher information they very kindly shared for me to place on Keelynet way back in the BBS days...

Of course it all migrated with Keelynet to the internet and from there took on a life of its own and as usual...with lots of useless fantasy bullshit attached because these imprecise writers know most people don't have the time or patience to get the true story, so they can screw it up all that they want and that too gets parroted all over the net and confuses the entire issue.

Its really annoying how many pages I come across with the most idiotic bullshit and speculation based on nothing but the writers own lame ideas. Anyway...Dellschau was on Keelynet before anyone else ever heard of it from Aero1 up to Aero9 way back in 1992 when I laboriously typed it all in.

The gas (suppe) also call NB gas (possibly for "neutral buoyancy"), was made from coal and supposed to be finer even than hydrogen with incredible lifting capacity, some suspected antigravity properties...

One story said you could fill a beachball with it, hold it in your arms and it would carry you up into the air...this lifting capability allowed these airships to be REMARKABLY SMALL and yet lift very heavy weights as you can see in Dellschaus drawings.

He and all members of the Sonora Aero Club feared for their lives because all members swore an oath of secrecy and that they would NOT use their secret gas for any private or commercial enterprise...and several of them had been KILLED by blowing up their ship when it was in flight...one guy I think Menke? had taken some things from the east coast to the west coast as a favor...the others found out and killed him.

07/01/13 - Scientists Work To Produce 'Star Trek' Deflector Shields
KeelyNet "This might be useful. From CNN: 'Recent evidence from NASA's Curiosity rover mission to the Red Planet has revealed that astronauts on the round-trip would be exposed to high levels of radiation from cosmic rays and high-energy particles from the sun ... this would clearly be bad for your health — and it is proving difficult to find a solution. ...

[S]hielding to completely block the radiation danger would have to be "meters thick" and too heavy to be used aboard a spacecraft. In contrast, ... science fiction fans have once again got used to the ease with which Captain Kirk gives the order for "shields up" and the crew of the Enterprise being protected instantly from the hostility of space.

Perhaps though, a real Star Trek shield may no longer be science fiction — scientists at the UK's Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) certainly think so. They have been testing a lightweight system to protect astronauts and spacecraft components from harmful radiation and working with colleagues in America to design a concept spaceship called Discovery that could take astronauts to the Moon or Mars.

"Star Trek has great ideas — they just don't have to build it," said Ruth Bamford, lead researcher for the deflector shield project at RAL. ...

The RAL plan is to create an environment around the spacecraft that mimics the Earth's magnetic field and recreates the protection we enjoy on the ground — they call it a mini magnetosphere." Related: 'Deflector Shields' protect the Lunar Surface.'"

The RAL plan is to create an environment around the spacecraft that mimics the Earth's magnetic field and recreates the protection we enjoy on the ground -- they call it a mini magnetosphere.

"The concept behind what we're suggesting is due to the evolution in our understanding of plasmas. What we discovered is that if you put a magnetic field around an object in a flowing plasma, the electrons, which are very light, will follow the new magnetic field that you've put there but the ions, the very fast ions, will overshoot -- they won't follow the magnetic field lines.

"You end up with a constant electric field that can be enough that it actually refracts or deflects enough of the radiation from inside the magnetic cavity that you've formed to protect the astronauts ... enough like the Earth that they can survive."

The mini-magnetosphere concept has also been proposed by a team at Washington University in the United States as a way of harnessing the solar wind to create a propulsion system.

Other shielding ideas are also being explored. The Inspiration Mars Foundation that is committed to sending a crew to Mars has proposed lining the spacecraft's walls with water, food and even human waste to help protect the astronauts. - Full Article Source

07/01/13 - One Baby from Three Parents
KeelyNet "The U.K. looks set to become the first country to allow the creation of babies using DNA from three people, after the government backed the in vitro fertilization technique.

It will produce draft regulations later this year and the procedure could be offered within two years. Experts say three-person IVF could eliminate debilitating and potentially fatal mitochondrial diseases that are passed on from mother to child.

Opponents say it is unethical and could set the UK on a 'slippery slope.' They also argue that affected couples could adopt or use egg donors instead.

Mitochondria are the tiny, biological 'power stations' that give the body energy. They are passed from a mother, through the egg, to her child. Defective mitochondria affect one in every 6,500 babies.

This can leave them starved of energy, resulting in muscle weakness, blindness, heart failure and death in the most extreme cases." - Full Article Source

07/01/13 - MIT Researchers Can See Through Walls Using Wi-Fi
Wi-Vi is a new technology that enables seeing through walls using Wi-Fi signals. The video shows the output of Wi-Vi (blue window) when a person moves around in a room. It can track whether there is a moving human inside the room and how he is moving.

"MIT Professor Dina Katabi and graduate student Fadel Adib have developed a system they call Wi-Vi that uses Wi-Fi signals to visualize moving forms behind walls.

How it works: 'Wi-Vi transmits two Wi-Fi signals, one of which is the inverse of the other. When one signal hits a stationary object, the other cancels it out. But because of the way the signals are encoded, they don't cancel each other out for moving objects.

That makes the reflections from a moving person visible despite the wall between that person and the Wi-Vi device. Wi-Vi can translate those faint reflections into a real-time display of the person's movements.'"

Every time a Wi-Fi signal is reflected off an object, the shape and makeup of that object affects the signal that comes back. But when Wi-Fi hits a wall, most of the signal gets reflected off the wall and only a faint bit of it reflects off the people on the other side.

To get around this, Wi-Vi transmits two Wi-Fi signals, one of which is the inverse of the other. When one signal hits a stationary object, the other cancels it out. But because of the way the signals are encoded, they don't cancel each other out for moving objects. That makes the reflections from a moving person visible despite the wall between that person and the Wi-Vi device. Wi-Vi can translate those faint reflections into a real-time display of the person's movements.

The key benefits of Wi-Vi over current ways of seeing through walls, such as radar and sonar, are cost, power and size. At the heart of the technology is its encoding scheme, which can be implemented in silicon, Katabi said. Wi-Vi could be built into a cellphone soon, and for not much more than the cost of a regular Wi-Fi module, she said.

"All the components we use are ones typically used in a Wi-Fi handheld device," she said. - Full Article Source

"Scientists in Japan have succeeded in cloning a mouse from a drop of blood. From the BBC: 'Circulating blood cells collected from the tail of a donor mouse were used to produce the clone, a team at the Riken BioResource Center reports in the journal Biology of Reproduction.'

The female mouse managed to live a normal lifespan and could reproduce, according to the researchers."

Scientists at a linked institute recently created nearly 600 exact genetic copies of one mouse.

Mice have been cloned from several different sources of donor cells, including white blood cells found in the lymph nodes, bone marrow and liver.

The Japanese research group investigated whether circulating blood cells could also be used for cloning. Their aim was to find an easily available source of donor cells to clone scientifically valuable strains of laboratory mice.

The team, led by Atsuo Ogura, of Riken BioResource Center in Tsukuba, took blood from the tail of a donor mouse, isolated the white blood cells, and used the nuclei for cloning experiments, using the same technique that produced Dolly the sheep in Edinburgh.

The process, known as somatic cell nuclear transfer, involves transferring the nucleus from an adult body cell - such as a blood or skin cell - into an unfertilised egg that has had its nucleus removed.

Reporting their findings in the US journal, Biology of Reproduction, the scientists said the study "demonstrated for the first time that mice could be cloned using the nuclei of peripheral blood cells". - Full Article Source

07/01/13 - How the Magnetic Pulser works
KeelyNet THE MAGNETIC PULSER generates at least five useful phenomena in living animal tissue. They are broad band ultrasound, charge density waves, electric currents, the pumping of lymph fluid by involuntary muscle contraction, and the conversion of fibroblast cells that are maintaining scar tissue into embryonic looking cells that apparently can convert over into the cell type needed to convert the damaged tissue region into normal healthy tissue.

The broad band ultrasound, the charge density waves and the induced electric current flow in intracellular fluids can all be very anti-microbial and be used to help clean microbe and viral infections out of the body tissue. Infections must be cleaned out of damaged body tissue regions before true repair and healing can occur. Sometimes it can be very helpful to use the Ultra 10A to help clean up infections along with THE MAGNETIC PULSER. Whether any particular infection will be curtailed by The Magnetic Pulser is problematical. The only way to know is to try it.

The flow of lymph fluid is vital for the health of normal tissue and repair of damaged body tissue. The fluid that enters the lymph vessels contains the unwanted waste products of cellular metabolism and various proteins and mineral and elemental ions that need to be transported back into the general blood supply. If the would-be lymph fluid is not removed from the body tissue in general, there is no efficient way for the blood plasma containing all the needed cell nutrients to easily and smoothly pass out of the blood flow capillaries into the body tissue where it is needed for general tissue maintenance and damaged tissue repair.

Many people suffer traumatic physical injuries that appear to slowly heal up, but there will remain problems in body part(s) usage/movement and quite often persistent or intermittent pain or discomfort will remain. THE MAGNETIC PULSER in experimental trials has shown the ability to alleviate, relieve, and change this situation.

The business end of THE MAGNETIC PULSER is a 16 turn coil of wire that has a 10 ½ inch internal diameter and a preferred treatment side polarity that faces into the body during treatment. The preferred treatment side is the smooth side of the coil with no cable tie couplings sticking up and no red silicon spots. The smooth side of the coil has a magnetic south pole polarity during the first half cycle of the ringing magnetic field pulse. Wherever you have a trouble area in or on the body you simply place the coil over it or around it for time lengths from approximately 5 to 15 minutes.

Many phenomena occur when animal tissue is exposed to rapidly changing magnetic fields. Which phenomenon is most observed depends on the strength, rate of change of, and duration of change of the magnetic field. For example, if a magnetic field changes by several thousand gauss in a microsecond, broadband ultrasound and charge density waves can be expected to be generated in the tissue. Also, electrical eddy currents will be produced in the interstitial body fluids. As discussed below these charge density waves and broadband ultrasound can be expected to disrupt and destroy microbe functions. The electrical eddy currents, when they enter the range of 100 microamperes per square centimeter to 200,000 microamperes per square centimeter, begin to biologically deactivate all manor of viruses and microbes as discussed in U.S. Patent # 5,188,738 - February 23, 1993. (Notice: The portion of the term of this patent subsequent to August 18, 2009 has been disclaimed, I wonder why?)

Another useful and interesting phenomenon that can be caused by a repeatedly pulsed magnetic field is dedifferentiation of fibroblast cells and some types of precursor endothelial cell types into embryonic-looking cells. This dedifferentiation of fibroblast cells is very important for tissue regeneration and repair.

Experiments that were conduced at the Center for Complex Infectious Diseases showed a relatively wide range of combinations of pulsed electric field rise times, pulsed electric field strengths, electric field pulse time widths, pulse rates, and total time of exposure to pulses that could produce the desired results of having fibroblast cells become embryonic looking and embryonic like in their behavior.

THE MAGNETIC PULSER is recommended for experimental treatment on joint and cartilage damage, tendon damage, ligament damage, adhesions and muscle damage from surgery and traumatic accidents. It is also for experimental treatment of various kinds of infections. It is recommended that veterinarians experiment with this technology, in particular on such large animals as horses that are often very difficult to work on by other methods for the problems mentioned above.

If you have a pacemaker, or a Cochlear hearing implant, you cannot use THE MAGNETIC PULSER for fear of destroying their electrical circuits. Hearing aids can be removed and placed at least ten feet away from the treatment area. Also, all cell phones, land line phones, TV remotes, watches, credit cards and anything that might be damaged by an intense magnetic pulse or a high voltage surge must be kept at least ten feet from the coil when THE MAGNETIC PULSER is in operation. Also, electrically conductive closed current paths such as chains and necklaces cannot be worn for fear of sparking between links.

Exciting possibilities in Pulsed, Intense, Magnetic Field Therapy: A Physicist's view by Gary Wade - Imagine devices that can disable and destroy microorganisms-viruses, bacteria and fungi - by means of a pulsed, intense, magnetic field! All microorganisms apparently have protein clump structures, which are periodically spaced and elastically coupled. They are capable of supporting resonant, standing, mechanical waves. Roughly half of the viruses that attack humans are lipid coated.

The frequency of mechanical oscillation is directly proportional to the magnetic field strength. For example, if you increase the magnetic field strength by a factor of ten, then the frequency of ultrasound generated by the ion oscillation increases by a factor of ten. The amplitude (displacement) of oscillation is directly proportional to the electric field strength.

The electric field strength is determined by how fast the magnetic field strength is changing. It is directly proportional to the instantaneous rate of change of the magnetic field strength. So, to have both higher frequencies of ultrasound generated and for these frequencies to have high intensity / amplitude, the magnetic field at the location of interest must be both very strong and be changing it's strength at a high rate. Hence, what is required is a high intensity pulsed magnetic field.

This is achieved by rapidly discharging a high voltage capacitor through an appropriately designed wire coil. If such a coil is placed on the surface of a person, when it has a high voltage capacitor discharge through it, it produces a continuum of magnetic field strength throughout the body and therefore a continuum of oscillation frequencies throughout the body along with a continuum of associated oscillation amplitudes.

The highest ultrasound frequencies with also the highest displacement amplitudes will be generated by hydronium ions directly under where the coil is placed.

The lowest frequencies and lowest amplitudes of oscillation will be at body locations farthest from the coil. Each time the high voltage capacitor is discharged through the coil, the electric current oscillates back and forth between the coil and the capacitor for approximately ten oscillations for most capacitor and coil combinations of interest.

Each oscillation cycle being a little weaker than the pervious one. During each of these ring down oscillations a crossed electric and magnetic field is generated in animal tissue with the concurrent generation of broad band ultrasound, which can destroy the critical periodically spaced closed on themselves protein structures of microbes.

Redneck DIY Magnetic Thumper - I went down to Radio Shack, and bought their "Room Strobe". About $40.00, for a square wooden box with a big refector on one side. The classic party strobe. Inside, there's a teeny little circuit board with a 3-prong strobe light plugged into it.

I disconnected one outside lead on the light, and connected it to one coil cord wire. I then connected the other coil cord wire into the open contact on the plug. This just put the extension cord & pancake coil in series with the strobe light--exactly as in previous versions, and exactly as described in Bob Beck's file.

The result was a machine-gun pulser: Auto-Thumpy. It hasn't melted out after hundreds of thousands of flashes over a four-month period of time. Being conservative, I use it at a slow flash rate, about 1/sec. But it gets used a lot.

The pulse was a little frail, so I pulled out the small stock capacitor, and replaced it with a larger one from a 35mm camera flash--one from the melted circuit board of an early Thumpy. I don't know the value of the larger capacitor, since it wasn't marked-- but it powered up the pulse nicely.

"Auto-Thumpy" can be run for hours at a time, shared by several people, and it just keeps on workin'. No batteries required--just a wall plug. My minor technical modification could be posted as a footnote to Bob Beck's original file, and might make the use of his technology a little more convenient for some folks.

I've noticed that as minor chronnic "background" infections get cleared up, I've suddenly become aware of their absence. And I seem to have more immune system resources available to deal with day-to-day problems.

I strongly recommend you adopt this technology if you have any kind of problem with unwelcome "colonists"--it's worth the effort, and the cost, a thousand times over. Just one other small note: it's too early to be sure, but I think using Mr. Thumpy around my face has caused my beard to start growing in black.

I noticed the change when I saw a year-old picture that showed snowy white areas that are now about half-black, in a horizontal pattern. I'm 47, and greyed out in a distinct vertical pattern years ago. I could care less about the color, but it may indicate a rejuvination of the skin tissue, or some such. I'll be watching for further developments, and will keep you posted. - Full Article Source

KeelyNet BBS Files w/bonus PDF of 'Keely and his Discoveries'
KeelyNet Finally, I've gotten around to compiling all the files (almost 1,000 - about 20MB and lots of work doing it) from the original KeelyNet BBS into a form you can easily navigate and read using your browser, ideally Firefox but it does work with IE. Most of these files are extremely targeted, interesting and informative, I had forgotten just how much but now you can have the complete organized, categorized set, not just sprinklings from around the web. They will keep you reading for weeks if not longer and give you clues and insights into many subjects and new ideas for investigation and research. IN ADDITION, I am including as a bonus gift, the book (in PDF form) that started it all for me, 'Keely and his Discoveries - Aerial Navigation' which includes the analysis of Keely's discoveries by Dr. Daniel G. Brinton. This 407 page eBook alone is worth the price of the KeelyNet BBS CD but it will give you some degree of understanding about what all Keely accomplished which is just now being rediscovered, but of course, without recognizing Keely as the original discoverer. Chapters include; Vibratory Sympathetic and Polar Flows, Vibratory Physics, Latent Force in Interstitial Spaces and much more. To give some idea of how Keely's discoveries are being slowly rediscovered in modern times, check out this Keely History. These two excellent bodies of information will be sent to you on CD. If alternative science intrigues and fascinates you, this CD is what you've been looking for... - More Info

'The Evolution of Matter' and 'The Evolution of Forces' on CD
KeelyNet Years ago, I had been told by several people, that the US government frequently removes books they deem dangerous or 'sensitive' from libraries. Some are replaced with sections removed or rewritten so as to 'contain' information that should not be available to the public despite the authors intent. A key example was during the Manhattan Project when the US was trying to finalize research into atomic bombs. They removed any books that dealt with the subject and two of them were by Dr. Gustave Le Bon since they dealt with both energy and matter including radioactivity. I had been looking for these two books for many years and fortunately stumbled across two copies for which I paid about $40.00 each. I couldn't put down the books once I started reading them. Such a wealth of original discoveries, many not known or remembered today. / Page 88 - Without the ether there could be neither gravity, nor light, nor electricity, nor heat, nor anything, in a word, of which we have knowledge. The universe would be silent and dead, or would reveal itself in a form which we cannot even foresee. If one could construct a glass chamber from which the ether were to be entirely eliminated, heat and light could not pass through it. It would be absolutely dark, and probably gravitation would no longer act on the bodies within it. They would then have lost their weight. / Page 96-97 - A material vortex may be formed by any fluid, liquid or gaseous, turning round an axis, and by the fact of its rotation it describes spirals. The study of these vortices has been the object of important researches by different scholars, notably by Bjerkness and Weyher. They have shown that by them can be produced all the attractions and repulsions recognized in electricity, the deviations of the magnetic needle by currents, etc. These vortices are produced by the rapid rotation of a central rod furnished with pallets, or, more simply, of a sphere. Round this sphere gaseous currents are established, dissymetrical with regard to its equatorial plane, and the result is the attraction or repulsion of bodies brought near to it, according to the position given to them. It is even possible, as Weyher has proved, to compel these bodies to turn round the sphere as do the satellites of a planet without touching it. / Page 149 - "The problem of sending a pencil of parallel Hertzian waves to a distance possesses more than a theoretical interest. It is allowable to say that its solution would change the course of our civilization by rendering war impossible. The first physicist who realizes this discovery will be able to avail himself of the presence of an enemy's ironclads gathered together in a harbour to blow them up in a few minutes, from a distance of several kilometres, simply by directing on them a sheaf of electric radiations. On reaching the metal wires with which these vessels are nowadays honeycombed, this will excite an atmosphere of sparks which will at once explode the shells and torpedoes stored in their holds. With the same reflector, giving a pencil of parallel radiations, it would not be much more difficult to cause the explosion of the stores of powder and shells contained in a fortress, or in the artillery sparks of an army corps, and finally the metal cartridges of the soldiers. Science, which at first rendered wars so deadly, would then at length have rendered them impossible, and the relations between nations would have to be established on new bases." - More Info
