10/29/12 - Interesting visit & ebay FE device

KeelyNet

A Mexican fellow came all the way from Cabo San Lucas, actually tracked down my house just to chat about free energy and alternative science.

I was surprised at his english because it was pretty good...we talked about 1.5 hours in my house...then it was lunch time and both of us were hungry so we went to La Cabana to eat Bistec ala Mexicana...and after we relaxed and talked about 2.5 hours til well after they normally close but they always let people stay late if they want.

Nice fella and I was impressed with his persistence to come all this way just to meet me..he had bought a couple of items from my http://www.vanguardsciences.biz website and so when he came to the door, he asked me 'Vanguard Sciences?'...kind of funny...

His particular interest was magnets and the possibility of a self-running magnetic motor...we talked about the hump that one must overcome just before a full 360 degree loop and we talked about magnetic shielding methods.

We talked about Bedini, Lindemann, Bearden, Moray, Moray King, George Wiseman, Don Smith (who he says he thought is deceased from his health issues), Dr. Raymond Phillips, Mr. Wilson from East Texas, Walter Wright, Hubbard, Coler, Keely, Tesla, Einstein, Edison, Al Bielek, Preston Nichols, the Philadelphia Experiment, the Montauk Project, UFOs in general, the Unified Field Theory, Hal Puthoff, Bernhard Haische and Alponse Rueda on ZPE and inertia, plus many other things...

I must say I was totally impressed...that he knew so many names and better, that he knew WHY those people were worth studying or avoiding...lol...(like Smith, Bielek, Nichols to avoid)


I was intrigued by the Free Energy Device he said he'd seen on eBay so looked it up (the auction has run out now);

Real Free-Energy Generator Device RARE!!! Obtain electric power from the ''air'US $29.99

Item location:MEXICO CITY, DF, Mexico Ships to:Worldwide

Now you can build by yourself this Low cost circuit that provides Electrical power from ambient free-energy in the air...

The module converts RF (radio frequency natural and artificial) energy from the ambient to usable electric power.

Yes! you can obtain electricity from thin air!!! the module is portable lightweight and easy to build. All parts you need are common and can be easily found in your local electronics supply store.


Guess thats enough for today...the ad says 'can't be found anywhere else'...hmmm....don't have a spare $30 since I need all my meager money for moving costs back to Texas...so someone here might want to buy this thing and check it out...probably plans for the Tate Module.

Good luck and if you buy it, write in and tell us all what you got! - Full Article Source

10/29/12 - Genetic Roulette - The Gamble of our Lives
Are you and your family on the wrong side of a bet?

When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions. The health of all living things and all future generations were put at risk by an infant technology.

After two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves.

This seminal documentary provides compelling evidence to help explain the deteriorating health of Americans, especially among children, and offers a recipe for protecting ourselves and our future.

10/29/12 - Gravity control and the Farrow Box
I received an interesting email so here is part of it with my response in blockquotes;

I've come up with the story of Farrow and his dynamo. Farrow on Keelynet. His black box seems something similar to the one described into "a tale of negative gravity", and that one that lowered the weight of the jeep. Negative Gravity

Thus we know it's a mechanical device, does this means gyroscopic/rotating magnets?

It could very well be an INERTIAL device, what they call a unidirectional thruster or kinemassic (drive) where weight is thrown in the preferred direction of travel which JERKS the craft in that direction.

If you can do it fast enough, and throw a heavy enough weight you can travel in any direction including up.

I've seen another picture on Farrow at Rex Research, where it is said that the box was connected to the book with a wire.

KeelyNet I looked at that photo and I think it is highly misleading...the one that makes sense is the one (with the dynamo) on TOP of the book which is sitting on the scale...the Farrow box did not transmit anything through those wires but electricity. It is the electronic components in the box itself which produced the gravity repelling effect.

So the box generates some kind of electrical energy field around the box which repels the gravity which comes from above since I believe gravity is a PUSH, not a PULL.

Wrights Push Gravity on Keelynet

I was told about an experimenter in Seattle, Washington who had a cylinder about 1 foot wide by 2 feet high...on the top of this cylinder were a ring of solenoidal coils and a bettery inside the cylinder.

When the inventor switched on the pulsing circuit, the box would float in the air and he would fly it in his backyard to show friends.

Supposedly, one day while he was flying it behind his house (which had a high fence so no one could see in) some men in suits came to his door and told him they were from the government, that he was being ordered to give up his machine, his plans and all details and material regarding this discovery...and that he was being ordered not to discuss it or tell anyone about or in any way transfer any information about it under threat of national secrecy and treason which would send him and all involved to jail for life.

The inventor asked how they knew about it and they said there are orbiting satellites which look for gravitational anomalies and on which they can triangulate to determine the approximate location of the gravity distortion.

This way they could monitor anyone who experiments with gravity control and shut them down before the secret gets out.

So he gave it up but my friend had heard the story BEFORE the suit guys visited so he passed it on. Never are their names, locations or precise details.

Now, reading here and there I'm thinking that there is the possibility to produce a force, or better a fluid that can be transmitted to objects with a metallic wire. And this fluid is able to defy gravity someway think about Keely levitating the sphere).

KeelyNetYou'll recall Keely had the wire wrapped AROUND the sphere...major key here.

I don't think its a fluid but in my UFO days I was very interested in the reports that described technology and effects. One article in FATE magazine reported on a UFO encounter in Oklahoma I believe.

Oklahoma UFO uses rotating Mercury for Inertial Drive

A man was driving a mountain road late one night when he came upon a UFO which had landed on the road...he stopped and some men came out to ask if he had any water he could spare...he said yes but they would have to show him the inside of the machine in exchange for the water.

They took him onboard and walked him around, expaining about their propulsion system. It consisted of a big tube that went around the ship...at one place in the tube it shrunk to a much smaller size, then rapidly opened up past that smaller part.

They pumped something with heavy mass like mercury through this tube at high pressure and velocity...the heavy mass would interact with the aether/zpe/gravity so that when it moved to the smaller tube, it would act to provide a partial braking action that would JERK the ship in the direction desired...the fluid would pass through the smaller tube and when it exited into the much larger tube, it would expand and be repumped to continue the cycle. That is a mechanical inertial drive.

As far as a wire...yes, I think that is highly probable...and there are many clues about this if one looks, including in history and legends.

Think about the wheel of Leedskalnin. An external circle of alternating polarity magnets, and a metallic rotor. I think that the movement of magnets or electromagnets with alternating polarity can induce something in the nearby metals, probably according to specific frequency related to the metal itself.

Very much like the UFO story above.

By the way, another approach, think about an Hertzian-waves generator and the spiral bifilar coil that Grebennikov called "scepter of Toth", may the things be linked together?

KeelyNet I think the caduceus is probably the real one we need to focus on...perhaps with one snake it is an indication that the dual serpents have been split into two opposing polarities...

North/south, positive/negative, push/pull....like a diode or checkvalve that biases a sinewave so that only the positive can pass OR only the negative can pass.

This would separate the equilibrium into the push OR the pull effect where push would reduce gravity and pull would increase local gravity.

Keely's entire philosophy was based on push, pull and balance achieved through chords of 3, 6, or 9 frequencies.

So Farrows box would be producing a pushing field that repels local gravity to cause weight loss in the book (book is below the box) as measured on the scale. - Full Article Source

10/29/12 - Caduceus as a tuned scalar emitter for health?
I want to offer up a speculation ignited by the previous post that included the Scepter of Thoth and the Caduceus.

Looking at the photos and drawings of many Egyptian gods, particularly Thoth, (Tehute - pronounced tay hoo tay) many carry a caduceus, WHY?

Does it emit some kind of beam or is it a passive device which might possibly be tuned to the 'mass chord' of their body so that the Caduceus wand or rod would emit a stabilizing, equilibrium type field that would interact with the body energy fields to HARMONIZE from any disease or distortions occurring in the bioplasmic field (the aura) which EVENTUALLY must manifest in the reality of the physical body IF not cancelled, quenched or nullified through phase conjugation?

If you take a sinewave and another one of the same frequency, for on of them, shift the phase by 180 degrees, then they supposedly cancel...

KeelyNet They do if tested with normal instrumentation, but the theory of scalars (vectorless bubble in the fabric of space/aether/zpe) then it would create an energy bubble that I think might prevent the entry and interference from other energies which could be noxious or toxic to the body.

I think the premise of a natural shielding energy field that could be intensified at will, was valid...that we could produce some kind of HEIGHTENED state, a heads up, an on guard, UP SHIELD state for our aura and our immune system that would simply REPEL...any dangers presented to our bodies...whether from viruses, bacteria, toxic gases or fluids, damaging energies, etc...

If this Scepter of Thoth thing in the Caduceus form is in fact a scalar emitter resonantly TUNED to the body of the person who carries it, then there could be some fascinating experiments that might lead to novel health discoveries.

Another correlation to this regarding the body having its own mass chord so that you can resonantly tune into it (according to Keely, ALL things have a mass chord) ...there is the story of Montezuma and the two gold discs that let he and his queen fly.

KeelyNet

"Among the gifts which Montezuma, the last Aztec Emperor, gave to Cortez (who nobly rewarded him with torture and death) were two large flat gold disks about the size of gramophone records. These were said to be emblems of royalty and were intended for King Charles V of Spain and his Queen. The King's disk was about a quarter of an inch thick (about 10 inches in diameter); the Queen's was much thinner (about 8 inches in diameter).

Montezuma knew what the disks were for, but it seems that Cortez looked upon them as very clumsy and heavy things to wear, and it is doubtful if they ever reached Spain, for they are not listed in any of the treasure ships' inventories.

These disks were cut to a size and thickness exactly corresponding to the size of the person for whom they were intended. They had to be of the correct size so as to suit the wavelengths of his personal vibrations.

Thus the owner alone could use them. (for flight) Keely's machine only worked when he was present and consciously directing his vibrations towards them.

Evidently the Spanish King never received, or never tried out his flying disks; had he done so there would surely be a minute in the most holy records of the Inquisition lamenting the fact that: `His Majesty, on striking a vile heathen cymbal, was seized by Satan and cast up into the air.'

So these gold discs were 'tuned' to the mass of the body they were supposed to resonate with...bigger one for the king, smaller for the queen...strike the disc, it phase conjugates with the body frequency to cancel local gravity, they rise into the air and swim through the air with their bird feather wings as proof of their divinity.

I think we could use the passive scalar emitter effect of a tuned caduceus to establish a field of equilibrium in the body that would sustain optimum health and possibly repelling any virus or bacteria and/or its effects from affecting the body. - Full Article Source

10/29/12 - What Is White Elephant Technology?
What is white elephant technology? The answer is simple. Any unusual invention (past or present) that fails to find a wider market acceptance despite its innovative nature qualifies as white elephant technology.

Examples include: aquatic jet packs, wave-powered boats, flying aircraft carriers, an asteroid deflection program, pedal-powered submarines, aerial rowboats, and personal submersibles to name just a few.

Importantly, all the technologies we will write about here have been built and field tested -- none are speculative.

The SILOE Research Institute specializes in reporting on these under appreciated technologies because we believe heroic investment in white elephant technology is the purest expression of the human condition.

And though nobody has yet built a time machine out of a DeLorean, we promise if they do, you'll be the first to know it. - Full Article Source

10/29/12 - Scientific American goes inside the rogue geo-engineering story
Recently, news broke that a scientist had unilaterally launched a geo-engineering experiment — dumping iron sulfate and iron oxide into the Pacific Ocean.

There were two goals to the project:

First, grow a massive plankton bloom which would store atmospheric carbon the same way that trees take in and store atmospheric carbon:

second, use that plankton as a food source to restore salmon populations in the northern Pacific.

If it sounds like those two goals are kind of fundamentally contradictory — if the salmon eat the plankton, then the stored carbon is going to end up back in the atmosphere, not indefinitely stored — well, you're right.

But the project showed that it's relatively easy for a small group of people to experiment on Earth's ecosystem without any oversight or approval from the global community at large. That's why the story made headlines. - Full Article Source

10/29/12 - How to Fish in the Desert
In the United Arab Emirates, a freshwater lake has appeared in the middle of the desert. The oasis is beautiful and full of life, and it's risen 35 feet since 2011. It's also probably accidentally man-made.

Hydrologists believe the lake formed from recycled drinking water (and toilet water).

The nearby city of Al Ain pumps in desalinated sea water, uses it for drinking and flushing the toilet, cleans it in a sewage treatment plant, and then re-uses it to water plants. All of that water ends up in the soil and, at the lake site, it comes back up.

The water is clean, writes Ari Daniel Shapiro at NPR. Don't worry about that. Instead, the major side-effect of the lake is change, as scientists watch the desert ecosystem that used to exist on the site decline, and a new one rise to take its place.

It's a great story that shows how complicated discussions about ecology can be. On the one hand, you're losing something valuable. At least in this one spot. On the other hand, you're definitely gaining something valuable, too. - Full Article Source

10/29/12 - Fukushima Fish Still Radioactive
KeelyNet "Bottom-dwelling fish that live near the wrecked Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant still show elevated radiation levels 19 months after the accident — and those radiation levels are not declining.

Researcher Ken Buesseler says this indicates the seafloor sediments are contaminated (abstract), and will remain so for decades.

He said, 'I was struck by how [the radiation levels] really haven’t changed over the last year.

Since cesium doesn't bioaccumulate to a significant degree, and in fact is lost when fish move to a less contaminated area, this implies that the cesium source is still there'" - Full Article Source

10/29/12 - Gut Bacteria Cocktail May End Need for Fecal Transplants
"A tonic of gut microbes may be the secret recipe for treating a common hospital scourge. Researchers have pinpointed the exact mix of microbes required to cure mice of chronic infection by Clostridium difficile.

The hard-to-treat bacterium infects alomst 336,000 in the US each year and causes bloating, pain, & diarrhea.

A similar bacterial cocktail may be able to replace the current controversial treatment involving the intake of a healthy person's fecal matter to restore the right balance of microbes in the gut."

Searching for alternatives, microbiologist Trevor Lawley of the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Hinxton, U.K., and his colleagues examined Clostridium infection in mice.

Lawley and his colleagues first demonstrated that the germ's spores do lead to recurrences of the infection after antibiotic treatment and that fecal therapy cures the problem. They then cultured the fecal material used to cure the mice, isolating 18 types of bacteria.

Finally, they began to mix and match, infecting mice with different combinations of the bacteria. Of the various combinations tried, only one, a mix of six very different kinds of bacteria, cured the mice, they report online today in PLoS Pathogens. - Full Article Source

10/29/12 - Supreme Court To Hear First Sale Doctrine Case
"The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear a case to determine how copyright law and the doctrine of first sale applies to copyrighted works bought overseas, then imported to the U.S. and then re-sold.

The case involves a foreign student who imported textbooks from Asia and the resold them in the U.S. to help fund his education. He was sued by the publisher, lost, and was ordered to pay $600,000 in damages. Now SCOTUS gets to weigh in on the issue.

'The idea -- upheld by the Supreme Court since 1908 -- is that once a copyright holder legally sells a product initially, the ownership claim is then exhausted, giving the buyer the power to resell, destroy, donate, whatever.

It's a limited idea -- involving only a buyer's distribution right, not the power to reproduce that DVD or designer dress for sale. ...

The tricky part is whether that first-sale doctrine applies to material both manufactured and first purchased outside the United States. Federal law gives that authority to a purchaser's work "lawfully made under this title."

Does "this title" apply to any copyrighted work — whether manufactured all or in part in the United States and around the world?" - Full Article Source

10/29/12 - Our Weather Satellites Are Dying
KeelyNet "The NY Times reports that some experts say it is almost certain that the U.S. will soon face a year or more without crucial weather satellites that provide invaluable data for predicting storm tracks. This is because the existing polar satellites are nearing or beyond their life expectancies, and the launching of the next replacement, known as JPSS-1, has slipped until early 2017.

Polar satellites provide 84 percent of the data used in the main American computer model tracking the course of Hurricane Sandy, which at first was expected to amble away harmlessly, but now appears poised to strike the mid-Atlantic states. The mismanagement of the $13 billion program to build the next generation weather satellites was recently described as a 'national embarrassment' by a top official of the Commerce Department.

A launch mishap or early on-orbit failure of JPSS 1 could lead to a data gap of more than 5 years. The second JPSS satellite — JPSS 2 — is not scheduled for launch until 2022. 'There is no more critical strategic issue for our weather satellite programs than the risk of gaps in satellite coverage,' writes Jane Lubchenco, the under-secretary responsible for the Commerce Department's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency.

'This dysfunctional program that had become a national embarrassment due to chronic management problems.' As a aside, I know from personal experience that this isn't the first time NOAA has been in this situation.

'In 1992 NOAA's GOES weather satellites were at the end of their useful lives and could have failed at any time,' I wrote as a project manager for AlliedSignal at that time.

'So NOAA made an agreement with the government of Germany to borrow a Meteosat Weather Satellite as a backup and drift it over from Europe to provide weather coverage for the US's Eastern seaboard in the event of an early GOES failure.'" - Full Article Source

10/29/12 - Paintball Pellets As a Tool To Deflect Asteroids
KeelyNet "In the event that a giant asteroid is headed toward Earth, you’d better hope that it’s blindingly white. A pale asteroid would reflect sunlight — and over time, this bouncing of photons off its surface could create enough of a force to push the asteroid off its course.

How might one encourage such a deflection? The answer, according to an MIT graduate student: with a volley or two of space-launched paintballs.

Sung Wook Paek, a graduate student in MIT’s Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, says if timed just right, pellets full of paint powder, launched in two rounds from a spacecraft at relatively close distance, would cover the front and back of an asteroid, more than doubling its reflectivity, or albedo.

The initial force from the pellets would bump an asteroid off course; over time, the sun’s photons would deflect the asteroid even more."

Scientists have proposed a wide variety of methods to avoid an asteroid collision. Some proposals launch a projectile or spacecraft to collide with an incoming asteroid; the European Space Agency is currently investigating such a mission.

Other methods have included detonating a nuclear bomb near an asteroid or equipping spacecraft as “gravity tractors,” using a craft’s gravitational field to pull an asteroid off its path.

Paek’s paintball strategy builds on a solution submitted by last year’s competition winner, who proposed deflecting an asteroid with a cloud of solid pellets. Paek came up with a similar proposal, adding paint to the pellets to take advantage of solar radiation pressure — the force exerted on objects by the sun’s photons.

Researchers have observed that pressure from sunlight can alter the orbits of geosynchronous satellites, while others have proposed equipping spacecraft with sails to catch solar radiation, much like a sailboat catches wind. - Full Article Source

10/29/12 - Canadian Teenager Arrested For Photographing Mall Takedown
KeelyNet (The infection spreads...) - "An aspiring teenage journalist in B.C., Canada who witnessed a mall takedown and decided to photograph it (using a real-film camera), was told to 'delete' the photo by security guards.

He (quite legally) refused to do so, and when local police arrived they assisted mall security in pushing him to the ground, handcuffing him, cutting off his backpack with a utility knife and searching it.

'He said the security guards held him, attempting to grab his camera, and he was pushed to the ground.

He said he then tried to use his body to protect two cameras he carried in his bag.

"They're just yelling and screaming, and just telling me to stop resisting," Markiewicz said.'"

Lawyer Douglas King, of Pivot Legal in Vancouver, agrees, saying that private mall security guards and police have no right to try to seize someone’s camera or demand that photos be deleted — even on private property.

No questions asked - King said that too often, police take the side of guards, with no questions asked.

"They need to be able to look at this with a cool head, separate the parties, and really give a fair analysis to both sides, not put a kid in handcuffs and take him to a police cruiser," King said. - Full Article Source

10/29/12 - Canadian Researchers Create Wireless Charger For Electric Cars
"University of British Columbia researchers have developed a wireless charging system for electric cars.

It involves a spinning magnet beneath the parked vehicle which turns another magnet in the underside of the car. Charging takes four hours and is about 90% as efficiently as plugging in.

From the article: ' "One of the major challenges of electric vehicles is the need to connect cords and sockets in often cramped conditions and in bad weather," says David Woodson, managing director of UBC Building Operations.

"Since we began testing the system, the feedback from drivers has been overwhelmingly positive." Four wireless charging stations have been installed at UBC's building operations parking lot.

Tests show the system is more than 90 per cent efficient compared to a cable charge. A full charge takes four hours and enables the vehicle to run throughout an eight-hour shift.'"

"A significant concern for charging cars wirelessly has been the high power and high frequency electromagnetic fields and their unknown, potential health effects on humans."

The UBC researchers came up with so-called "remote magnetic gears," a system that has been successfully tested on campus service vehicles.

Whitehead said it involves two magnets, one in the parking spot that rotates on electricity from the grid and the other within the car. The outside magnet remotely spins the in-car gear, generating power to charge the battery.

Recharging starts as soon as the car pulls into the parking spot. - Full Article Source


10/29/12 - Predictive Surveillance System
KeelyNet "Carnegie Mellon university researchers have developed a surveillance system that can not only recognize human activities but can also predict what might happen next.

Scientists, through the Army-funded research dubbed Mind's Eye, have created intelligent software that recognizes human activities in video and can predict what might just happen next; sounding an alarm if it detects anomalous behavior."

The systems uses years of advancement in the field of surveillance and specifically in object recognition. Researchers behind the system have also incorporated activity forecasting [PDF] that tries to understand what humans will do based on their physical trajectories.

CCTV systems of today are more or less reactive in a way. Cameras tend to only relay the captured feed to some place where analyses of feed happen; that too by humans with associated risks of distraction and drowsiness.

Researchers behind this intelligent software have designed the software to be proactive such that it helps in preventing crimes and dangerous events from happening.

Surveillance systems have become economical to the point that almost all public places have got cameras installed. Decision makers are of the opinion that beyond the CCTV and other related systems, the main cost associated with surveillance systems are personnel employed to analyze the imagery.

This particular research and the system that has resulted from it, if mature enough, will probably tempt decision makers into replacing humans involved in imagery analysis. - Full Article Source

10/29/12 - Mother Found Guilty After Protesting TSA Pat-down of Daughter
(They will trump up fake charges to get you.) - "In 2011, en route to Baltimore, Tennessee mother Andrea Abbott was arrested after squabbling with the TSA over their pat-down and "naked" body-scan process. Initially Abbott had protested a pat-down of her 14 year-old daughter, though eventually backed off.

When her own turn came, she refused both a pat-down and body-scan. This week, despite having no criminal record, Abbott was found guilty of disorderly conduct and sentenced to one year of probation.

A surveillance video of the affair shows what appears an agitated Abbott surrounded by various TSA agents, but seemingly contradicts the premise by which she was convicted.

In the case against Abbott it was claimed that her behavior impeded the flow security-lines and lawful activity.

Beyond Abbott's confession of issuing some verbal abuse, the video does not appear to display a significant blockage of traffic nor anything noticeably criminal." - Full Article Source

10/29/12 - Fake Video or Controlled Spontaneous Human Combustion Weapon?

KeelyNet

Now this is PROBABLY fake but I've watched it several times and stopped it to see if there are any breaks or video manipulation and damned if I can see anything.

At first I thought the lower right hand digital clock wasn't changing BUT you can see the furthest right seconds changing from 4 to 5 to 0 to 1, then +2 and the video is 41 seconds duration.

It shows a traffic cop making a stop, walking up to a car to ask for license, registration, etc...and nothing is handed to him...then this really bright light envelopes the cop who rapidly disintegrate in flames down to a pile.of what looks like clothes and maybe ashes and/or bones.

You see his remains on the ground and they look very much like those from spontaneous human combustion. The car speeds off and I can't see any sign of video tricks.

KeelyNet The new solution from Kamen and Deka wouldn’t replace electricity delivered from the grid, but it could theoretically supplement it, and cut down on the number of large-scale generators needed to support telecommunications systems.

So what is Kamen’s great new invention? It doesn’t have a name yet, but Kamen refers to it as a Stirling engine. Stirling engines were introduced in the 19th century, but have had limited practical application since then, largely because of cost issues.

As Kamen describes it, his device is quite simply “your refrigerator running backward.” Instead of relying on internal combustion, it uses cyclic compression and expansion of gaseous material, producing heat and power in the process. As an electricity generator alone, the machine isn’t cost-effective.

However, when you consider the heat and power production together, the equation changes significantly. Selling off the heat from the device can pay for the costs of operation, while electricity is then used as needed.

The advantages are huge. It’s alternative energy that’s always available, multi-purpose, and able to run on multiple fuels - from hydrogen, to methane, to beer.

Standing in the way of Kamen’s dream, however, is the ability to make production of his new machine cheap enough to compete commercially. That’s where the telecommunications industry potentially comes in. Neither Kamen, nor LaJoie knows yet how exactly they can work together, but they have some initial ideas, like installing the machines at the bottom of cellular towers, and a plan to keep talking.

Today, one of Kamen’s machines costs a quarter of a million dollars to build. But in production quantities, Kamen cites a price tag of under ten thousand dollars.` - Full Article Source

10/26/12 - While sea ice grows, Antarctica sheds land ice
A new satellite survey of Antarctica suggests that some of the continent’s contribution to sea-level rise may be overestimated. However, the land ice melt on the frozen continent is still sufficient to put Australia’s multi-million dollar airstrip at risk.

“The sea level change we’re seeing today is happening faster than it has for centuries with just a small contribution from the massive Antarctic ice sheet. What is sobering is that sea levels will rise even faster if Antarctica continues to lose … more ice into the oceans.”

The land ice melt, which incidentally far outweighs the small sea-ice gain at the periphery of the continent, is proving inconvenient for Australian research in Antarctica. Fairfax reports that the $AU46 million airstrip opened in 2008 is becoming unusable due to the melt.

The Wilkins airstrip, near Australia’s Casey research station, has managed only six landings in the last two summers rather than the planned 20 landings per summer. Alternative – but expensive – sites are under investigation.

According to the scientists, the speed at which some of the glaciers now move towards the sea is outpacing the rate at which ice can be restored to the land through normal precipitation patterns, as noted by BBC.

A total of 111 fast-moving Greenland glaciers were studied and in comparison to the slow-moving ice beside them, 81 were shown to be thinning at twice the rate, thinning faster as they speed up. It is the speed at which the glaciers are moving that is causing the dramatic loss, and not simply faster melting from warmer temperatures. - Full Article Source

Geoengineers Artificially Melt Antarctic to Drill for Oil


10/26/12 - Russian - the retreat from Nazi base in Antarctica
For the first time, the legendary 2006 Russian documentary 'Third Reich - Operation UFO' in its entirety, fully translated into English and available for free viewing. Many thanks to Irina Du Toit for the translation and the saucer people for the subtitles.

The film explores the historical mysteries and rumours of a Nazi secret base in Antarctica, the 1947 flying saucer attack on Admiral Byrd's ill-fated 'Operation Highjump' expedition and the occult origins of Third Reich anti-gravity engines, flying discs and ancient Atlantean technologies viewed through the lens of perhaps the three most mysterious twentieth century German organisations of all: the 'Thule Society, 'Vril Society' and the 'Ahnenerbe'

One of the core themes of the film is the alleged existence of 'Base 211', the legendary underground Nazi base in the Antarctica. Drawing upon the pre-war Nazi interest in Antarctica and the creation of 'New Swabia'; the testimony of German U-Boat submarine commanders and the alleged disappearance of thousands of Nazi scientists and engineers at the end of the war, personnel that cannot be accounted for by the Vatican and Odessa 'rat lines' or American 'Operation Paperclip' activities. In addition, the film analyses the actual geo-physical possibilities of an underground base in Antarctica.

The other core theme is the alleged existence of a Nazi flying saucer program and the many evidential strands that this area generates. From the supposed channeling of extraterrestrial engineering schematics by members of the German occult group 'Thule Society' in the early part of the twentieth century to the 'implosion engine' of Viktor Schauberger and its possible appropriation by the Third Reich.

Bringing us to the the latter part of the twentieth century the documentary illustrates the many sightings of unknown crafts around the Antartic region and the theoretical basis for polar wormholes as entrance and exit points for visiting extraterrestrial spaceships and the possible involvement of HAARP, as well as asking why nearly all American Antarctic bases seem to be populated by agents of the National Security Agency and CIA.

Like the study of any phenomena and/or events that exist at the edges of consensus reality, occupy imaginal realms and are subject to historical revisionism; the interface of myth and reality is a shifting mosaic of fact, speculation, disinformation and fantasy, or to use the phrase of head CIA counter-intelligence spook, James Jesus Angleton, we have entered a "wilderness of mirrors".

Certainly there are elements in the documentary that give cause for concern such as the alleged "Special Bureau 13", the Nazi secret flying saucer research group and its similarity to the top secret government agency in the early eighties role playing game "Bureau 13: Stalking the Night Fantastic " (though equally the RPG title could be an insider homage to this secret Nazi organisation). Likewise, there is the lack of information on the existence of the US Navy destroyer 'Murdoch' in the testimony recounted by pilot 'John Sireson' in his description of the flying saucer attack on Admiral Byrd's fleet (testimony taken from an interview by the late pioneering American researcher Leonard Stringfield).

Equally, the testimony of Admiral Byrd that flying saucers attacked the 'Operation Highjump' fleet is of historical record as is his testimony to Congress of enemies that have the ability to fly "pole to pole". Likewise, the creation of 'New Swabia' is as much a historical fact as the 'impossible' existence of the 'Piri Reis' map.

What sets this documentary apart from most others of its kind is the inclusion of high ranking Russian scientists and military personnel and their testimony should not be discounted.

As the great American anti-fascist researcher Dave Emory says of many elements of deep politics: "its food for thought and grounds for further research".

Exopolitics UK and 'The Saucer People' are looking for other non-English UFO/alien related videos to help translate and subtitle, we have dozens of Russian documentaries waiting to be translated into English. If you speak Russian and are interested in translating any of this material please get in touch. - Full Article Source


10/26/12 - China and US team up to fight UFO threat???
This last week, reports of Chinese naval vessels off the US coast, Northern Californian in particular, have been reported but denied.

Now an Asian intelligence agency reports that a combined fleet operation between the US and China has been going on, a full combat operation against what we are told is a “highly unfriendly extra-terrestrial threat.”

The verifications of the fleet operations have been many, there have been no confirmations from the US side though the ships have been seen by every vessel that makes it offshore. The true nature of both the threat and the extent of the multinational military force used is beyond any imaginable classification level.

Rumors:

Extraterrestrial craft are operating from underwater bases.
Advanced US sub-orbital weapons platforms represented as “tested” have actually been deployed from Vandenburg Air Force Base. These are armed with energy weapons.
UFO tracking has been moved from conventional to nano-technology with microscopic sensors being used to detect behaviors such as dimensional rifts and distortions in time, things only discussed in TV shows like Fringe and X Files. (all Fox oddly enough)

The actual classified memo on very short distribution mentions only the following:

Opposition is extraterrestrial and extremely aggressive and unfriendly
The threat represents a “clear and present danger” and is isolated to the Pacific Basin
China is forced to carry US responsibility because our own naval capability is sitting in the Persian Gulf when America is under a very real threat.

Attempts to seek confirmations or to directly verify these operations will lead to fatal consequences. - Full Article Source

10/26/12 - Electrostatics as cause of Gravity

KeelyNet

Lloyd Pye sent an attachment for a paper on Electrostatics as a Cause of Gravity which I found on the net as a .pdf download.

Posted 2 Jun 2010 – An Electrostatic Solution for the Gravity Force and the Value of Gravity - Morton F. Spears (deceased) communicated by his daughter, Leigh Spears...

"Mr. Spears received a number of patents and was internationally recognized for his airborne radio antennas and for air and underwater navigation systems used for many years in American military and commercial planes and still used in American submarines. He retired from active business in 1994.

He subsequently pursued fundamental research on gravity, electromagnetic phenomena, and electronic physics, which he reported in two books and several articles."

Most attempts at duplicating UFO flight tend to use rotation and some form of high energy...magnetic like Otis T. Carr or electrostatic like that Searl, Hamel up in Canada and several others...

Then there is the electrostatic lifter effect of Thomas Townsend Brown...essentially ionic and there is also De Seversky who some copycats like Ventura who has promoted himself as the discoverer and never seems to reference or give credit to the true inventor, De Seversky.

The electrostatic gravity paper says it upfront;

"This paper claims that gravity is electrostatic, and substantiates this claim by deriving, through basic electrostatic relationships, a simple equation for gravity forces that includes an expression for the gravity constant..."

What I found novel is the capacitance force and coining of two novel terms as 'elastance of capacitors' and DARAF;

"a new path (through a curved rod of greater permittivity than the surrounding space, for example). The voltage-drop ‘field’ is "V / S , where S is the inverse of capacitance, called ‘elastance’ in units of ‘darafs’.

The capacitance ‘field’ can also be expressed as VC (volt-farads), which has the units of coulombs. Since there was no other available name for such a ‘field’, it was designated a Qf (coulomb) field in [1]."

Interesting theory and I think testable...but I don't think its the source of gravity...way too limited...but then I am a major disciple of Aether/ZPE as the zitterbewegung (jittering motion) that produces the quantum foam from which everything comes and where it returns in an infinite cycle of transmutations...

There is a much better German word that refers to the ultimate source of energy...not so much the EFFECT...similar to weltgeist (world spirit or world mind) but universal, omnipotent, don't recall it offhand but the aether idea as the 'force of the all father' seems to suffuses history. Some call it the breath of God, the Chinese call it the dragon current, and there is CHI, Orgone, etc...

To my view the paper is confused to think electrostatic forces have anything to do with gravity. It should be very testable if that is the case.

I think it would be an ionic effect possibly coupled with inertia as in a rotating plasma which consists of high potential ions.

Now if this rotating highly ionized inertial craft de-coupled, like undoing a velcro fastener, from the aether/zpe, then perhaps there is a gravity connection.

Just so happens, someone years ago, I think it was the late Peter Kelly, told me when T.T. Brown was experimenting with ion propulsion, in his most advanced experiments carried out in France, he coupled the ion flow with AXIAL rotation and the results were so startling that it all went top secret.

NOWHERE on the net have I ever seen anyone mention this and I think it would be highly testable and possibly lend credence to the electrostatic paper but STILL not be gravity control...have to see if it will fly UNDERWATER...I think not......

All you ever see is his disc suspended from a wire and supported by a pole...so the disc flies round the pole...the serious effects came from making the disc spin on its own axis...so I was told, but it does fit with the ideas of Hamel and Searl, among others.

There is a most revealing (and supportive for the electrostatic gravity correlation) excerpt at Electrogravitics and Field Propulsion;

"In reading the section describing the vacuum chamber results, we learn that when the discs are operated at atmospheric pressure they move in the direction of the leading edge wire regardless of outboard wire polarity.

This indicates that in normal atmospheric conditions the discs are propelled forward primarily by unbalanced electrostatic forces due to the prevailing nonlinear field configuration (which causes thrust in the direction of the low field intensity ion cloud regardless of the ion polarity).

On the other hand, the report says that under high vacuum conditions the discs always moved in the direction of the positive pole, regardless of the polarity on the outboard wire.

This indicates that in the absence of the unbalanced forces exerted by ion clouds, the discs moved mainly on the basis of the electrogravitic field effect, always toward the positive (negative G) direction.

These vacuum chamber experiments were a decisive milestone in that they demonstrated beyond a doubt that electrogravitic propulsion was a real physical phenomenon.

The report concludes saying: “It seems perfectly reasonable to conclude that a concentrated force of some kind accumulates within the presence of a strong dielectric.” (i.e., presumably in the presence of a high-K dielectric.)"

And check these out; Project Montgolfier about T.T. Browns experiments in France, and Sky is Falling, a walk on the wild side.

So there does seem to be a connection between gravity and electrostatics as 'electrogravitics';

"Along with the realization that gravity is almost certainly an electrostatic phenomenon comes a new uncertainty related to the nature of the medium in the path between attracting masses.

For ultra-miniscule voltage gradients in the order of magnitude dealt with in this paper, any medium other than vacuum space appears as a large open space with very tiny particles dispersed throughout.

If the particles have either some conductivity, or permittivity greater than ?0 , and if the medium is between two separated masses, the particles serve to increase the capacitance linkage between those masses.

This effect of increased linking capacitance is the same as if a slightly greater permittivity existed in the path between the masses.

The precise effective permittivity increase for various elements and materials is not yet state-of-the-art knowledge. However, from the expressions used to derive gravity forces in this paper, G is altered by this presently unknown effective permittivity ?12..."

Thanks Lloyd for sharing this...in looking into it, it is making me rethink the possibility that gravity could be coupled to electrostatics (as claimed in the Unified Field Theory) based on Townsend Browns vacuum experiments...but it won't fly underwater and UFOs do...so for me, it ain't pure gravity control.

I'd be ecstatic to be able to fly in an energy driven ship, whether electrostatic, magnetic or pure repulsion of local gravity by blocking aether/zpe influx into the mass neutral centers...even from BUG wings as claimed by our late friend Dr. Viktor Grennikov.

Always open to new ideas and even better, PROOFS of those ideas...this looks testable. A shame the author is deceased but I'm sure his daughter has even more information if someone wants to pursue it. - Full Article Source

10/26/12 - Quenco (Quantum Energy Convertor) Official Launch
KeelyNet Quenco is not just a theory, it is soundly based on a thermionic device that in 2011 produced usable power when heated in an isothermal oven, a device that has been repeatedly tested, and other similar devices that have been independently verified. An experiment that costs just $10. If you want to do this experiment see the foot of this page for details.

The Quenco device is the realization of the working vacuum gap device being reduced to the dimensions wherein electron tunnelling is dominant through an insulator (that replaces the vacuum gap) and where the thermionic current becomes a billion times greater. At nm dimensions it is predicted to work at temperatures as low as liquid Nitrogen, or lower.

The following is a brief description of the operation of a Quenco film.

Extract from the PCT PATENT - (Electronically filed 16th October 2012)

ABSTRACT

Disclosed is a multilayered ultra thin heat to power converter device that when immersed in a single reservoir of thermal energy converts the heat that flows into the device into usable electrical power by causing free electrons, with kinetic energies substantially higher than the average kinetic energy thereof,

to tunnel through electrical insulators from an emitter region to a collector region and through a semi permeable metallic mesh region interposed between the insulator regions,

wherein the metallic mesh region is negatively charged and is in closer proximity to the collector region than the emitter region causing the tunneling electrons to lose a substantial amount of their kinetic energy by doing work against the electric field created by the metallic mesh region,

and to simultaneously gain an equal amount of electrical potential energy, the electrical potential induced at the collector region exceeding the electrical potential barriers of dissimilar metal transitions as may exist in returning the electrons back to the emitter region,

thus making the device an electrical power source where no thermal energy is lost to an exhaust and where the thermal energy gradients are solely towards the heat to power converter device.

Here is an introduction to the subject of Maxwell's Demon. A working Demon would be the Holy Grail of Free Energy. It has been assumed for over a century that the Demon must use energy to sort hot particles from cold, and that the energy used would negate any gain realised from the sorting.

A Quenco sorts hot from cold without using any energy. In any system of particles where there is at least one degree of freedom there will be a distribution of energies, for free or quasi free electrons at the surface of a metal it is the case that at room temperature (293K) there are electrons that have a temperature exceeding 600K,

and some that are less than 100K, each of them likely to change their temperature at any moment as a result of interactions with the motion of others, and with the transfer of energy from the vibrating lattice.

So the idea that Quenco sorts hot from cold means that the Quenco mechanism allows the very energetic electrons to take a path prohibited to those with less energy.

Such a mechanism does not require work to be done by the sorting mechanism which is the usual failing of Maxwellian Demons, imagine throwing a ball upward such that it lands on top of a flat roof, this means that the kinetic energy of the ball was converted into potential energy.

Of course electrons cannot be sorted by gravity so the viable equivalent is to use electrostatic forces. In a Quenco film we get some of the very energetic electrons to use their kinetic energy by going closer to a negative charge, thus the electron loses velocity (becomes colder) but gains potential energy (electrical potential energy).

Quenco is thus a perfect realisation of Maxwell's Demon and so, according to current thinking, violates the Second Law of Thermodynamics, though in reality it may just prove that the Kelvin / Clausius interpretations were wrong. Arguments as to the remainder of the Second Law are not dealt with here... You might want to check out the Theory of the Quenco device. - Full Article Source

10/26/12 - Dewar flask technique to insulate walls
KeelyNet "Hybrid wall technology applies the same concept as a vacuum flask that uses a steel plate or plastic-coated foam to keep water warm for a long time," said Mr Tanin, now the managing director of Home Builder Centric Co, which he founded in 2010.

Applied in the construction industry, polystyrene or EPS foam is extruded to coat mortar cement on both sides of a wall. This technology is widely used in Europe to keep houses warm.

For Thailand, Mr Tanin said this concept can be applied to prevent heat from outside entering the house and cool air from inside from escaping.

"Consumers nowadays have much more information than in the past, so they know what is good for them in the long term," he said.

"If they realise that electricity tariffs will be more expensive in the future as oil prices rise, many will gladly spend more now to save over the next 20-30 years."

Mr Tanin spent several years developing the hybrid wall technology while working at his old job. He talked to several universities and brought the hybrid wall to their labs to test its heat resistance qualities. Recently the hybrid wall was certified by the American Society for Testing and Materials, and the American Concrete Institute.

The hybrid wall performs up to five times better than conventional concrete in preventing heat from entering a house. Lab results show a brick wall allows two to three watts of heat per square metre into a house compared to only 0.67 watts for the hybrid wall.

Mr Tanin said this technology reduces the use of natural wood because the wall is easy to assemble at the construction site, while the same concept is applied for a roof. - Full Article Source

10/26/12 - Breakthrough Technology to Dramatically Reduce Cost of Fuel Cells
HyperSolar, Inc. (OTC:HYSR), the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, today announced that it has jointly filed a patent application with the University of California, Santa Barbara ("UCSB") for the "protection and stability of electroactive units used for production of fuels and chemicals." This invention could dramatically reduce the cost of fuel cells, an important source clean energy.

"A big hurdle in our solar to hydrogen conversion process is the stabilization of the electrodes against photocorrosion," said Tim Young, CEO of HyperSolar.

"We recently developed an efficient and low cost protective polymer coating that allows for good electrical conductivity as well as preventing photocorrosion. This was a significant achievement for solar to hydrogen production. However, our continued research has revealed that this coating may offer broad benefits in many electrocatalysis applications, such as fuel cells. "

Fuel cells combine chemical energy, such as hydrogen, with an oxidant such as oxygen (air) to produce electrical energy, through the use of metal electrodes. Because of the corrosive aspect of the chemical reactions involved, almost all conventional fuel cells use electrodes made from platinum and other durable, but costly materials.

In fact, platinum electrodes are the most costly component in fuel cells, especially fuel cells used to power vehicles. For example, the current production cost of the Honda FCX hydrogen fuel cell vehicle is estimated to be $120,000, and the planned Toyota vehicle is expected to retail at $138,000.

While automotive use of fuel cells is still experimental, industrial and residential use of fuel cells for electricity generation is a fast growing market. Research firms project that the fuel cell market will reach $785 million in 2012, with an estimated compounded annual growth rate of 16.6% from 2010 to 2014.

HyperSolar is hopeful that its proprietary coating can be used to protect less expensive metals to replace platinum electrodes and lower the cost of fuel cells in the current market and the emerging automotive market. - Full Article Source

10/26/12 - Hybrid vehicles thanks to power inverter with 'infinite-level voltages'
Professor Afshin Izadian, a researcher at the Richard G. Lugar Center for Renewable Energy at IUPUI, has invented a power inverter that employs just a single switching transistor and generates infinite-level voltages.

Power inverters are at the heart of several renewable energy technologies. Solar power, battery storage, electric vehicles, motor drives and manufacturing robots all use inverters to generate AC power efficiently.

However, the current inverters with multiple switching transistors generate limited voltage levels, are heavy, generate unwanted harmonics (voltage frequencies) and require filters to reduce the harmful effects to the electric grid.

While studying how voltage levels and polarities are created in inverters, he made his discovery. In a creative moment at his lab bench, he began reconfiguring an inverter circuit and discovered a new property technique to create infinite voltage levels and invert the voltage polarity of power circuits.

This discovery in turn leads to a corollary insight that the researcher employed to create the new class of inverters. Not only did the bench test work, it lead to the discovery of several other circuits and controllers for high-power inverters with lower switching loss, higher voltage performance and lighter reconfigured circuits.

Izadian's work is under review by a prestigious technical journal, and several large companies have shown interest in the new inverters.

They are interested in how Izadian's breakthrough can result in simpler, cheaper and smaller systems with better performance than today's technology.

Izadian has several patents pending on his invention and is seeking research funding to complete the development of the analysis and controls needed for commercial viability. Products could be ready for the marketplace in as little as three years. - Full Article Source

10/26/12 - All Five Star Trek Captains Share a Stage

KeelyNet

"Just after half past seven on the evening of Friday 19th October, history was made at the Destination Star Trek London event at the capital's ExCel centre; when Captains Archer (Scott Bakula), Janeway (Kate Mulgrew), Sisko (Avery Brooks), Picard (Patrick Stewart) and James T.

This momentous event, which had occurred just once before, at the Wizard World Comic Con in Philadelphia in June, not only lived up to the expectations of fans, but exceeded them by a good light-year."

Witnessing these five icons of Star Trek interacting on the same stage, it was obvious that they all have very different personalities, itself the perfect embodiment of the Trek philosophy of diversity, and that the Captains portrayed by each of them were essentially an extension of these personalities.

Asked by John Barrowman whether they would ever consider working with each other in a film bringing the five Captains together, they agreed that they would, at which point Patrick Stewart revealed that Brent Spiner (Data) and John Logan (writer, Star Trek: Nemesis) had at one point been working on a script that did just that.

Addressing a shout from the audience that “we're all behind you”, Scott Bakula quipped “I don't know if I want to work with Spiner,” to rapturous applause. - Full Article Source

10/26/12 - Covert slavery permeates our world and our lives
KeelyNet If there's one thing that has remained consistent in human history, it's slavery. Nearly every civilization ever conceived by humans has involved involuntary servitude, whether by conquest or debt. Even most of the gods we have conceived require absolute obedience and submission.

Things haven't changed much, despite an effort over the last couple of hundred years to become more enlightened. Those who think their nation is so enlightened as to have eradicated slavery need only ask how long it's been since the last military draft.

In fact, submission to government is one of the most pervasive and insidious forms of slavery today. An legal code of behavior that is enforced by the use of deadly force and incarceration is an institutional form of slavery, whether you adhere to it voluntarily or not.

Even more insidious is the bondage of debt, and considering nearly all world currencies are a form of monetized debt, slavery would seem to be more rampant than ever. By this measure, nearly every human on Earth is a slave. Even those who issue the currencies are slaves to their own greed and avarice and desire to dominate others.

Slavery, despite our self-deceptions, exists today in many overt forms. The human trade for domestic servants runs unabated throughout much of the world. Young women in Indonesia are frequently sold out to wealthy Arabs, Chinese and other groups.

If you need another example, ask anyone at the BBC about the sex slave trade taking place backstage of your favorite sit-com or drama. The Euro elite have been trading lives for sexual gratification for centuries with no sign of abating, and that is hardly an isolated example.

Slavery expresses itself in certain 'lifestyle' choices, such as Master/slave or Dom/sub, which is a large and growing form of power play in the West, where women have been granted carte blanche to run rampant over men as retaliation for the perceived ills of past generations. In this case, powerless and ineffectual men (usually) seek out meek and even more powerless women (usually) in order to have someone to lord it over.

Short of eradicating religion, government and elitism of every kind, there seems to be no way out of the slave mentality. We are steeped in this culture of servitude from birth and from all angles. We spend our lives slaving away at 'jobs' in the hopes of gaining enough wealth and position to be able to control slaves, rather than be one. We create 'lifestyles' that allow us to feel some amount of control in our lives, no matter how illusory it is. We even domesticate animals in order to have something around us that obeys our wishes.

We submit our work for approval. We submit payment for services. We demand good service for our money. We build service economies. Indeed, it would seem that to rid the world of slavery would imply tearing down all that has come before and starting from scratch, and even then could we conceive of a world in which one group did not submit to another, whether by force or positive action? - Full Article Source

Boeing successfully tests a new missile that can take out electronic targets with little collateral damage.

The missile, known as CHAMP (Counter-electronics High-powered Advanced Missile Project), fired a burst of High Powered Microwaves at the building, successfully knocking out the electronic systems and computers, and even taking out the television cameras recording the test.

Seven targets were taken out in total during the one-hour test which left no collateral damage.

Coleman believes this can be a huge advancement forward in non-lethal warfare. - Full Article Source

10/26/12 - China’s increasing military spending unnerves neighbors
Getting a handle on Chinese military spending is difficult because much of it is opaque and off the books, such as the People’s Liberation Army’s spending on research and space exploration. But various international think tanks estimate that China’s military spending has risen from about $20 billion in 2002 to at least $120 billion last year.

The United States still spends four times as much on its military. But by some accounts, China is on course to surpass the United States in total military spending by 2035.

The increased spending has allowed the PLA to embark on a sweeping modernization program that includes new long-range cruise missiles, a new fleet of J-10 and J-11 fighter jets, an experimental stealth J-20 plane, a refurbished Soviet-era aircraft carrier and a growing space program, which includes China’s own satellite navigation network.

The PLA has also embarked on a long-term campaign to improve the inter-operability of its various ground, naval and air forces — long a weak point for the Chinese military.

Some critics, including China’s skeptical neighbors, are alarmed at the spending, which they say is being used to bolster China’s more assertive stance over long-disputed, uninhabited islands in the South China and East China seas. Longer term, some predict, China’s growing military might shift the balance with American-armed Taiwan, which Chinese leaders consider a renegade province to be reunited with the mainland. - Full Article Source

10/26/12 - U.S. Poised To Become World's Top Oil Producer
U.S. oil output is surging so fast that the United States could soon overtake Saudi Arabia as the world's biggest producer.

Driven by high prices and new drilling methods, U.S. production of crude and other liquid hydrocarbons is on track to rise 7 percent this year to an average of 10.9 million barrels per day. This will be the fourth straight year of crude increases and the biggest single-year gain since 1951.

The last year the U.S. was the world's largest producer was 2002, after the Saudis drastically cut production because of low oil prices in the aftermath of 9/11. Since then, the Saudis and the Russians have been the world leaders.

The increase in production hasn't translated to cheaper gasoline at the pump, and prices are expected to stay relatively high for the next few years because of growing demand for oil in developing nations and political instability in the Middle East and North Africa.

The major factor driving domestic production higher is a newfound ability to squeeze oil out of rock once thought too difficult and expensive to tap. Drillers have learned to drill horizontally into long, thin seams of shale and other rock that holds oil, instead of searching for rare underground pools of hydrocarbons that have accumulated over millions of years.

To free the oil and gas from the rock, drillers crack it open by pumping water, sand and chemicals into the ground at high pressure, a process is known as hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking."

While expanded use of the method has unlocked enormous reserves of oil and gas, it has also raised concerns that contaminated water produced in the process could leak into drinking water. - Full Article Source

10/23/12 - R.I.P Walter Clyde Wright, Jr. of Push Gravity fame
KeelyNet I am distressed to discover my friend and mentor Walter Wright died Sept. 15, 2011. I wasn't aware of this but noticed I hadn't received any mail from him in a very long time.

June 21, 1918 — Sept. 15, 2011

Walter Clyde Wright Jr., 93, passed away on Thursday, Sept. 15, 2011, at NorthBay Medical Center. Walter was born on June 21, 1918, in Cement, California, to Walter Clyde Wright and Pearl Lambert Wright and was the youngest of four children.

Walter is a World War II veteran who served in the 7th Infantry Division of the U.S. Army between 1941 and 1945. He worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad for 37 years and resided in Fairfield, California, his entire life.

He was an avid science buff who was passionate about pursuing his Theory of Gravity and how it affects celestial bodies in the universe. In his later years, Walter taught electronics at Armijo Adult Education and Napa Junior College.

Walter Wright's Push Gravity

I first heard about Push Gravity when Ron Barker and I attended one of the late Dean Stonier's Global Sciences Congresses in Denver, Colorado, back in the early 1990s. Ron and I both laughed when we heard about Push Gravity but after hearing Walter speak and seeing his #13 video, it was pretty convincing.

We made a point to meet Walter and got to know him. That friendship lasted up to his recent death. He sent many letters with news about correlation and support for his work. I visited him at his home in Fairfield, California where he showed me his garage museum with many magnetic models to illustrate his theories.

Walter introduced me to his girlfriend, companion and assistant Darlene, a totally beautiful and charming lady who narrated all his tapes. Darlene and Walter loved to dance which accounted for their solid and healthy physiques.

We went out to eat and the entire meeting was totally delightful and very informative. Walter told me his sons had no interest in his gravity research so asked if I could take his museum and run it in Dallas. I wasn't in a financial position to do this and told him I'd like to but it takes money.

He told me when his mother died, he was surprised to learn he had inherited a sizeable sum of money. With this he bought gifts for friends and family and pretty much left the rest in savings. He asked if I could take on keeping his Push Gravity theory alive and signed the rights over to me. I have the document from that time and never had a chance to do much with it.

He said he had many copies of his Push Gravity book which he'd like to sell from his home, so asked me to hold off on reprinting or reselling that book. I guess I should make an ebook out of it now and include some of his other papers and letters he sent to me.

His work definitely needs to go on...I believe he had about 27 VHS tapes of pretty low quality...I have maybe 24 of them but I don't think the quality is worth transferring to DVD as they are very grainy and digitally noisy images.

Well, I was sad to stumble on this tonight when I looked up Walter Wright in the Social Security Death Index and found he had died a year ago and I never saw any notice and no one told me. I will miss Walter, he was an original thinker and I loved his very clever 'Bunch-of-Grapes' theory. He says IF gravity in the universe is caused by a PULL, then everything would clump together like a bunch of grapes. Hard to counter that statement.

I must credit Walter for teaching me about Push Gravity and all it has led to in my life. Since then I have found there are many others who preceded Walter and I believe Push Gravity is supported by ZPE as providing a pressure that holds all mass together. It creates, sustains and disintegrates us back to the aether. Literally 'bubbles in space' as postulated by Nobel Prize nominee Chris Illert. Along the lines of gravity is a quote from this site which I include here;

In the 1980's, during an open day at Wollongong University, Illert, as part of a bet with some other senior science staff - demonstrated to an astonished crowd passing by at the time - a floating chair using an antigravity device he had devised.

I kid you not - I was good friends with an eyewitness. Illert would never, and will never reveal his knowledge to the world. He is one of those genius minds, with an eccentric and highly focussed intellect - and he justified his actions by saying that mankind was not ready for such knowledge.

The only morsel of info I got from him, was his suggestion to look closely at what he said at our conference about the geometry of the nucleus of atoms as being the key to understanding the secrets of matter.

"Does this mean that we could 'create' matter or energy directly from this virtual background of 'frenetic activity'? Is the secret then high speed rotation? Does that mean rotation of energy, matter or a combination of both?

Do not many devices that produce 'phenomena' ranging from anti-grav to unidirectional thrust to overunity/free energy require some kind of spinning matter or energy?

By creating a high speed rotation, could we then cause the separation on a micro level of these bubbles to produce two from one? And would they necessarily be of the same smaller size and energy density because of the split? Or would the virtual background rush in to make them fit a density related to their energy/elemental nature?"

There are many tie-ins to Walters Push Gravity researches and experiments and I hope people value what he has kindly shared with us all. I will definitely miss Mr. Walter Clyde Wright, Jr. truly rest in peace my friend. - JWD - Full Article Source

10/23/12 - Move over Amy! Learning neuroscience with cockroach legs
KeelyNet Neuroscientists [Tim Marzullo] and [Greg Gage] wanted a way to get kids interested in neuroscience. What they came up with isn’t terribly far from something found in Frankenstein’s lab; by amputating a cockroach’s leg and attaching electrodes, they’re able to listen to the sound of neurons firing.

For an even cooler demonstration, they’re able to apply a little bit of current to the leg and make the leg dance to the beat of the Beastie Boys.

The guys published an article in PLOS One and gave a TED talk demonstrating their SpikerBox, as they call their invention, to the masses.

The basic idea is to amplify the electricity generated by cockroach neurons firing. By listening in on the neurons with an iPad app, [Tim] and [Greg] can set the threshold of the recording to detect the action potential of an individual neuron, and listen in on exactly what happens when a single neuron fires.

It seems like a great tool to explain the very basics of what a nervous system – and a brain, both cockroach and human – actually is. In the video after the break, you can see [Greg] playing around with individual cockroach neurons.

After that, [Greg] plays the Beastie’s High Plains Drifter into the leg making the muscles contract. Truly, The Sounds of Science.

(Everything old is young again...this is not new but still interesting. - JWD) Check this out from 1996;

A few months back, at one of our local Roundtable meetings, I was talking with a couple of fellows, Al Holman and Ed Wade. I don't recall how we got on the subject, but Ed said when he was going to graduate school, they used to take live scorpions, insert fine wires at the base of their neck, into the spinal cord, and connect the wires to an audio tape recorder. They would then let the scorpion walk around, sometimes teasing it to get a more complex set of responses.

The electrical signals coursing through the spinal cord would be recorded on the recorder. The scorpion would then be subjected to a toxic gas to kill it without doing damage to the body, all the while leaving the wires inserted in its neck.

Ed said once the scorpion was dead, they would play back the tape and the scorpion would walk around, recreating all the recorded actions. The cool thing was you could play the tape backward and the scorpion would move backward, arching its tail and all.

This could be done several times before the conductivity of the tissue started to decay and the organism would no longer respond. Ed said this process only works with simpler organisms.

Kind of reminiscent of Steven Kings' 'Pet Sematary', eh? But it did remind me of experiments being done on paraplegics where atrophied or non-responding muscle tissue were being stimulated by electronic pads located in specific orders. The computer sees the muscle groups as line printer characters being driven through the parallel port. - Full Article Source


10/23/12 - Was the Great Pyramid a plutonium mill?

KeelyNet

The complexity, precision and size of the Great Pyramid are contrasted to the simplicity of pharaohs’ tombs.

It is proposed that it is a plutonium mill. Its perfection of construction and choice of materials are compared against all other pyramids. The current history of plutonium production is related.

The internal geometry of the pyramid is given correspondence to the process steps of breeding plutonium, separating plutonium from other material, disposing of radioactive waste, using water and producing hydroelectric power.

The practical value of plutonium and the economic justification of the pyramid are discussed. Later attempts by the Egyptians to recreate the power and value of the pyramid are analyzed.

Scientific methods for testing whether or not nuclear fission occurred within the pyramid are defined.

It is proposed here that the Great Pyramid was a nuclear fission production mill, and it was a technical and financial success.

It did not create energy but packaged energy within artificially created isotopes of plutonium. This hypothesis is not fantastic in the sense that it would be a physical impossibility but is fantastic only in the fact that it upsets the conventional history of man.

The case for this claim is developed in the remainder of this paper. The approach is to drop preconceptions about religion and culture, and look upon the Great Pyramid as a business investment.

KeelyNet There is no archeological evidence of power stations and electrical grids existing on earth in the past 10,000 years, which would have utilized the plutonium.

The logical answer is obvious: the plutonium was taken off planet. Barring travel to another solar system, the rational destination could only be Mars.

It takes a great deal of energy to lift mass up from the Earth’s surface to orbit and then out of orbit. But a pound of plutonium is ten million kilowatt hours in energy.

Since Mars is a very cold planet, the heating value of plutonium there would be more than it is on Earth.

If it is not condensed, exhaust steam from a power turbine on Earth must be released at 212oF and 14.7 psia.

On Mars the same steam could be utilized all the way down to 45oF and less than 0.15 psia.

The result is that 18% more useful energy can be extracted from plutonium on Mars than can be extracted on Earth. Hydroelectric power and fossil fuels are not an option on Mars.

10/23/12 - Incredible CSI-Like “Enhance!” App Fixes Your Unfocused Photos
Created by Vladimir Yuzhikov—a software engineer specialized in image and signal processing—the SmartDeblur app is truly impressive.

According to him, the "restoration of distorted images is one of the most interesting and important problems of image processing—from the theoretical, as well as from the practical point of view." Even while the math for doing this started about 70 years ago, he says, it's only now that we are seeing the results of it.

Yuzhikov worked on two common cases: blurring due to incorrect focus and blurring due to movement. "Each of you knows very well," he points out, they "are very difficult to repair." In fact, the examples used as samples by Yuzhikov are impossible to fix using current commercial technology.

Many people think that blurring is an irreversible operation and the information in this case is lost for good, because each pixel turns into a spot, everything mixes up, and in case of a big blur radius we will get a flat color all over the image.

But it is not quite true—all the information just becomes redistributed in accordance with some rules and can be definitely restored with certain assumptions. - Full Article Source

10/23/12 - Captive Beluga Was Able To Mimic Speech
KeelyNet "'Who told me to get out?' asked a diver, surfacing from a tank in which a whale named NOC lived. The beluga's caretakers had heard what sounded like garbled phrases emanating from the enclosure before, and it suddenly dawned on them that the whale might be imitating the voices of his human handlers.

The outbursts began in 1984 and lasted for about four years, until NOC hit sexual maturity. NOC likely learned to imitate humans by listening to them speak underwater and on the surface.

The whale's human-like calls are several octaves lower than normal whale calls, a similar pitch to human speech.

Researchers trained NOC to 'speak' on command, and determined that he makes the sounds by increasing the pressure of the air that courses through his nasal cavities.

They think that he then modified the sounds by manipulating the shape of his phonic lips, small vibrating structures that sit above each nasal cavity. A recording of NOC's speech is embedded in the story. He sounds remarkably like a kazoo."

10/23/12 - Adult African-Americans have highest percentage of 'LGBT' in U.S
Poorer blacks and Asians are more likely to be gay than wealthier whites, a controversial study claimed yesterday.

A Gallup survey – said to be the largest of its kind ever undertaken in America – estimated that 3.4 per cent of US adults saw themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT).

That figure consisted of 4.6 per cent of African-Americans, 4.3 per cent of Asians, 4 per cent of Hispanics – but only 3.2 per cent of whites.

In contrast to earlier, smaller studies, researchers also found that Americans with the lowest levels of education were most likely to say they were gay.

A similar pattern was found in wealth, with more than 5 per cent of those with annual incomes of under £15,000 identified as gay compared with 2.8 per cent earning more than £37,000 a year.

And while 21 per cent of American adults earn more than £56,000 a year, only 16 per cent of gay people claimed to earn that much.

The survey – based on interviews with more than 121,000 people – contradicts the perception that lesbians and gays are mostly white, urban and affluent, said lead author Gary Gates. - Full Article Source

They are very well behaved, and know when to sit still, take it slow and wait. This video was shot in one take, no cuts or editing - and both dogs had a wonderful time.

The hand coordination was not preplanned - since everything was up to the dogs - but we both intuitively acted on the feeling of the dogs movement, plus we could hear from the "waitresses" comments, what the dogs were doing. Enjoy and don´t be worried - both dogs love it, and we love them.

KeelyNet The extent of these failures have been largely ignored by the press. Sure, single instances garner attention as they happen, but they ignore past failures in order to make it seem like a rare case.

10/20/12 - Cool Ionocraft Redneck Hack

KeelyNet

It’s hard to believe that in five years we haven’t covered lifters before. This realization was sparked when [Tyler] tipped us off about a lifter project demonstrated at the Kansas City hackerspace called CCCKC.

Lifters, the casual name for ionocraft, fly without combustion or moving parts. We’re not going to tackle the particulars of what makes flight possible, but high voltage is required to feed the phenomenon that provides the lift.

One of the first comments when we asked what to do with old CRT monitors was to use them for lifters.

The flyback transformer puts out plenty of voltage if you can tap into it without killing yourself (no, seriously, that’s an issue).

This is the method that the CCCKC folks used.

10/20/12 - Scientists Turn Air Into Petrol
"The Independent reports on a scientific breakthrough which would allow us to synthesize petrol from thin air.

Quoting from the article: 'Air Fuel Synthesis in Stockton-on-Tees has produced five liters of petrol since August when it switched on a small refinery that manufactures gasoline from carbon dioxide and water vapor. The company hopes that within two years it will build a larger, commercial-scale plant capable of producing a ton of petrol a day.

It also plans to produce green aviation fuel to make airline travel more carbon-neutral. ... Tim Fox, head of energy and the environment at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in London, said: "It sounds too good to be true, but it is true.

They are doing it and I've been up there myself and seen it. The innovation is that they have made it happen as a process. It's a small pilot plant capturing air and extracting CO2 from it based on well known principles.

It uses well-known and well-established components but what is exciting is that they have put the whole thing together and shown that it can work."

Although the process is still in the early developmental stages and needs to take electricity from the national grid to work, the company believes it will eventually be possible to use power from renewable sources such as wind farms or tidal barrages.

"We've taken carbon dioxide from air and hydrogen from water and turned these elements into petrol," said Peter Harrison, the company's chief executive, who revealed the breakthrough at a conference at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in London."

"We are converting renewable electricity into a more versatile, useable and storable form of energy, namely liquid transport fuels. We think that by the end of 2014, provided we can get the funding going, we can be producing petrol using renewable energy and doing it on a commercial basis," he said.

Although the prototype system is designed to extract carbon dioxide from the air, this part of the process is still too inefficient to allow a commercial-scale operation.

The company can and has used carbon dioxide extracted from air to make petrol, but it is also using industrial sources of carbon dioxide until it is able to improve the performance of "carbon capture".

Other companies are working on ways of improving the technology of carbon capture, which is considered far too costly to be commercially viable as it costs up to £400 for capturing one ton of carbon dioxide. - Full Article Source

10/20/12 - Pacemaker Assassin
"Pacemakers seem to be hackable now too, if researcher Barnaby Jack is to be believed. And the consequences of that are deadly. Anonymous assassinations within 30 feet of the pacemaker seem to be possible.

From the article: 'In a video demonstration, which Jack declined to release publicly because it may reveal the name of the manufacturer, he issued a series of 830 volt shocks to the pacemaker using a laptop.

The pacemakers contained a "secret function" which could be used to activate all pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) in a 30 foot -plus vicinity. ...

In reverse-engineering the terminals – which communicate with the pacemakers – he discovered no obfuscation efforts and even found usernames and passwords for what appeared to be the manufacturer’s development server.

That data could be used to load rogue firmware which could spread between pacemakers with the "potential to commit mass murder."'"

“The worst case scenario that I can think of, which is 100 percent possible with these devices, would be to load a compromised firmware update onto a programmer and … the compromised programmer would then infect the next pacemaker or ICD and then each would subsequently infect all others in range,” Jack said.

He was developing a graphical adminstration platform dubbed “Electric Feel” which could scan for medical devices in range and with no more than a right-click, could enable shocking of the device, and reading and writing firmware and patient data.

“With a max voltage of 830 volts, it's not hard to see why this is a fairly deadly feature. Not only could you induce cardiac arrest, but you could continually recharge the device and deliver shocks on loop," he said.

Jack said his goal was not to cause harm, but to help manufacturers secure their devices. - Full Article Source

10/20/12 - Anti-traffic-cam countermeasure
NoPhoto is Jonathan Dandrow's electronic countermeasure for traffic-cameras. It's a license-plate frame that uses sensors to detect traffic-cameras, and floods the plate with bright light that washes out the plate number when the cameras take the picture. It's presently a prototype, but he's seeking $80,000 through Indiegogo to get UL certification and go into production.

Dandrow believes that traffic cameras are unconstitutional, because "if you do commit a traffic violation, you should have your constitutionally guaranteed right to face your accuser – and that your accuser should not win by default just because it happens to be a camera that can’t talk in court."

His device is made in the USA, and (he says) it is legal to use in the US.

Dandrow also says that traffic cams cause more accidents than they prevent, citing studies by the Federal Highway Administration and the Virginia Transportation Research Council, "The increase in rear-end collisions alone from people slamming on their brakes to avoid being ticketed is enough to increase accident rates overall." - Full Article Source


10/20/12 - Halloween Props: Spooky eyes light up the bushes
This is just one example of several pairs of spooky eyes which light up [Vato Supreme's] bushes this Halloween. The quick and inexpensive build process make it a perfect diy decoration.

Each eye is made up of a ping-pong ball and an LED. But that alone won’t be very spook as the entire ball will glow rather brightly.

So he spiced things up a bit by masking off the shape of a pupil and spraying the balls black. The vertical slit seen in white above will glow red like a demon in the night.

The LEDs are driven by an ATtiny85 running the Arduino bootloader. [Vato] found there was plenty of space two write code which fades the eyes in and out using PWM. This happens at random intervals for each of the four pairs he is driving.

We’ve seen a similar project that used oversized LEDs as the eyes. But we really like the idea of using a diffuser like this one.

(An Arduino seems like overkill for this simple project, you could use a timer, a sequencer (for several sets of eyes), a motion detector or IR beam to trigger them when someone comes near enough. K.I.S.S. = keep it simple stupid! - JWD) - Full Article Source


10/20/12 - Acoustic barcodes store data in sound, go on just about anything
A group from Carnegie Mellon University has a fresh take on close-quarters data it calls acoustic barcodes. It involves physically etching a barcode-like pattern onto almost any surface, so it produces sound when something's dragged across it -- a fingernail, for example.

A computer is then fed that sound through a microphone, recognizes the waveform and executes a command based on it. By altering the space between the grooves, it's possible to create endless unique identifiers that are associated with different actions. - Full Article Source


10/20/12 - Cassette tapes are the future of big data storage
THE cassette tape is about to make a comeback, in a big way. From the updates posted by Facebook's 1 billion users to the medical images shared by healthcare organisations worldwide and the rise of high-definition video streaming, the need for something to store huge tranches of data is greater than ever.

And while hard drives have traditionally been the workhorse of large storage operations, a new wave of ultra-dense tape drives that pack in information at much higher densities, while using less energy, is set to replace them.

Researchers at Fuji Film in Japan and IBM in Zurich, Switzerland, have already built prototypes that can store 35 terabytes of data - or about 35 million books' worth of information - on a cartridge that measures just 10 centimetres by 10 cm by 2 cm. This is achieved using magnetic tape coated in particles of barium ferrite.

Using tapes should cut down drastically on energy use, too. Data centres based on disc drive arrays use over 200 times more power than would a tape library of similar size, according to a 2010 study by The Clipper Group...

The downside of tapes is that they are slower to access than hard discs because they have to be fetched by a robotic mechanism, inserted in a reader and spooled to the right point. But the Linear Tape File System, which is being developed, expedites this process to make it comparable to disc drives, Eleftheriou says.

As storage needs skyrocket, hard drives won't be able to keep up and keep power down, Eleftheriou says. Density improvements in hard drives are facing physical limits that mean they can only add more power-munching platters. "It's time to take advantage of the low power and low cost of tape," he says. - Full Article Source

10/20/12 - Is this another reason to push for Mars?
KeelyNet Astrophysicist claims Giant Spaceships are Orbiting Mars - Phobos is a spaceship, says famous scientist.

Astrophysicist Dr. Iosif Samuilovich Shklovsky calculated the orbital motion of Martian satellite Phobos and came to the jaw-dropping conclusion that the moon is artificial, hollow, and basically a titanic spaceship. The scientist is world renowned for penning the classic science book, "Intelligent Life in the Universe" with famous Cornell University professor, the late Carl Sagan of PBS and Voyager space probe fame…

Two facts deeply troubled Shklovsky. First, both moons are too small. No other planet in the solar system has moons as tiny as the Martian moons. They're unique.

Second, their origin bothered him. Were they captured asteroids as others assumed? No, they could not be! Their orbital plane was all wrong. And they're too close to Mars. Much too close. Even more amazing--Phobos changes its speed from time to time.

Russian astronomer Dr. Cherman Struve spent months calculating the Martian moons' orbits with extreme accuracy early in the 20th Century. Yet, Shklovsky astutely noted, as the years progressed into decades the mystery moon's orbital velocity and position no longer matched its mathematically predicted position.

After lengthy study of the tidal, gravitic, and magnetic forces, Shklovsky came to the inescapable conclusion that no natural causes could account for the origins of the two odd moons or their bizarre behavior, particularly that exhibited by Phobos.

The orbit of that fantastic moon was so peculiar, so bizarre, that Phobos had to be a gigantic spaceship.

Every other possible cause was carefully considered and resignedly rejected. Either alternate explanations had no supporting proof or the math was wildly off.

So, Phobos had to be accelerating as it lost altitude, yet could the outer fringes of the thin Martian atmosphere be affecting it? Was the atmosphere actually causing a braking action like the deteriorating orbit of a slowing Earth satellite?

Yet, no less than the United States Naval Observatory weighed in on the Russian astrophysicist's amazing revelation, stating: Dr. Shklovsky quite correctly calculated that if the acceleration of Phobos is true, the Martian moon must be hollow, since it cannot have the weight of a natural body and behave in the prescribed manner.

Thus, even that august American institution conceded that mysterious alien ships might be orbiting Mars.. .the objects' strange origins and ultimate purposes completely unknown. - Full Article Source

10/20/12 - Car that runs on nothing but water unveiled in Japan
Japanese company Genepax presents its eco-friendly car that runs on nothing but water. The car has an energy generator that extracts hydrogen from water that is poured into the car’s tank. The generator then releases electrons that produce electric power to run the car.

The electric powered car can run on any type of water (you can even use tea and soda…etc). The car can run for an hour at about 50 miles per hour on just a liter of water; about 2 cans of soda worth. Genepax, the company that invented the technology, aims to collaborate with Japanese manufacturers to mass produce it.

Unlike other electric cars, the Genepax car does not require that batteries be recharged and has no emission. The water electrical generator is located in the back of the car and when water is poured it is then broken down in order to create electricity to power the car. Imagine what such a generator could do to the oil industry, the nuclear plants and the electrical grid.

That story broke in 2008. Today Japan is producing hydrogen fueled cars – the Honda FCX Clarity. Combine the technology of Genepax with the technology of the Honda FCX Clarity and you have a full production vehicle that uses no gasoline. No gasoline combustion means zero emissions.

In 2010, it is reported that there are a total of 50 FCX Clarity available for lease in the U.S with a target to have 200 available world-wide.

The Honda FCX Clarity fuel cell-electric vehicle has been chosen to be the pace car for the opening race of the 2011 IZOD IndyCar Series, from 25-27 March 2011. This is the first-time a hydrogen-powered vehicle will pace an IZOD IndyCar Series race in the United States.

Propelled by an electric motor that runs on electricity generated in a fuel cell, the FCX Clarity’s only emission is water and its fuel efficiency is three times that of a similar-sized petrol-powered automobile.

The FCX Clarity’s performance and acceleration are comparable to a 2.4-litre, 4-cylinder engine with an EPA certified range of 240 miles. The compact and powerful Honda V Flow Fuel Cell Stack allows for unprecedented spaciousness and a futuristically stylish, low-slung design and spacious interior. - Full Article Source


10/20/12 - DNA Molecules Can 'Teleport,' Nobel Winner Says
KeelyNet A Nobel Prize winning biologist has ignited controversy after publishing details of an experiment in which a fragment of DNA appeared to 'teleport' or imprint itself between test tubes.

According to a team headed by Luc Montagnier, previously known for his work on HIV and AIDS, two test tubes, one of which contained a tiny piece of bacterial DNA, the other pure water, were surrounded by a weak electromagnetic field of 7Hz.

Eighteen hours later, after DNA amplification using a polymerase chain reaction, as if by magic the DNA was detectable in the test tube containing pure water.

Oddly, the original DNA sample had to be diluted many times over for the experiment to work, which might explain why the phenomenon has not been detected before, assuming that this is what has happened.

The phenomenon might be very loosely described as 'teleportation' except that the bases project or imprint themselves across space rather than simply moving from one place to another.

To be on the safe side, Montagnier then compared the results with controls in which the time limit was lowered, no electromagnetic field was present or was present but at lower frequencies, and in which both tubes contained pure water. On every one of these, he drew a blank.

The quantum effect - the imprinting of the DNA on the water - is not in itself the most contentious element of the experiment, so much as the relatively long timescales over which it appears to manifest itself. Quantum phenomena are assumed to show their faces in imperceptible fractions of a second and not seconds minutes and hours, and usually at very low temperatures approaching absolute zero.

Revealing a process through which biology might display the underlying 'quantumness' of nature at room temperature would be startling.

Montagnier's experiment will have to be repeated by others to have any hope of being taken seriously. So far, some scientists have been publically incredulous.

"It is hard to understand how the information can be stored within water over a timescale longer than picoseconds," said the Ruhr University in Bochum's Klaus Gerwert, quoted by New Scientist magazine, which broke the story (requires registration).

(Think about it..DNA and RNA have billions of base pairs where each side is a mirror image of the other...that means a scalar. So each base pair is 'transceiving' information all over the universe.

"The haploid human genome has about 3.17 billion base pairs, and if completely unwound would have a length of about 6 feet (2 meters).

Most cells are diploid and have two copies, for a total of 6.34 billion base pairs (12 feet / 4 meters).

This haploid DNA is distributed among 23 chromosomes*, ranging in length from 250 million base pairs to under 50 million base pairs. So the longest single molecule of DNA in the human body would be about 6 inches (16 cm) if unwound."

Scalar means the signals are infinite because they are not resistive, capacitive or inductive, so pass through any matter. - JWD) - Full Article Source

This instrumentation of living plants is simple, non-invasive, and does not damage the plants: it requires only a single wire placed anywhere in the plant soil.

Botanicus Interacticus allows for rich and expressive interaction with plants.

It allows to use such gestures as sliding fingers on the stem of the orchid, detecting touch and grasp location, tracking proximity between human and a plant, and estimating the amount of touch contact, among others.

In Botanicus Interacticus we also deconstruct the electrical properties of plants and replicate them using standard electrical components.

This allows the design of a broad variety of biologically inspired artificial plants that behave nearly the same as their biological counterparts. From the point of view of our technology there is no difference between real and artificial.

Botanicus Interacticus technology can be used to design highly interactive responsive environments based on plants, developing new forms of organic, living interaction devices as well as creating organic ambient and pervasive interfaces. - Full Article Source


10/20/12 - Young Blood rejuvenates, why?
The team lead by Saul Villeda, which previously discovered that infusing old mice with blood from young mice significantly boosted brain cell growth, has now found more cellular changes, powerfully suggesting improvements in cognition.

Tissue from the hippocampus of old mice given young blood showed changes in the expression of 200 to 300 genes, particularly in those involved in synaptic plasticity, which underpins learning and memory.

There were also changes in some proteins involved in nerve growth. A team at Stanford lead by Tony Wyss-Coray is searching for the factors in young blood causing the effect.

To find out whether these changes improved cognition, the team gave 12 old mice eight intravenous shots of blood plasma either from a young or an old mouse, over the course of one month. They used plasma rather than whole blood to exclude any effect produced by blood cells.

The mice then took part in a standard memory task to locate a hidden platform in water. The old mice that had received young blood plasma remembered where to find the platform much quicker than the mice on the old plasma.

To find out which brain area was involved in this reversal of cognitive decline, the team performed fear conditioning tests. Mice that had been given young blood were better at remembering fear associated with tasks that activated the hippocampus, suggesting that young blood has a specific effect on this area of the brain.

But the mystery remains: what exactly is it about young blood that old blood doesn't have? "We have not identified any individual factors responsible for the rejuvenating effects of young plasma yet," says Tony Wyss-Coray, also at Stanford. His team is now trying to identify possible candidates such as lipids and hormones. - Full Article Source

10/20/12 - USA prepares world to Third World War
A member of the Russian State Duma Yevgeny Fyodorov shared his vision of the current situation in the world with Pravda.Ru. He believes that the United States is preparing the grounds for starting World War III.

Their plan is to combine all local conflicts together. The United States, when speaking about the fight against terrorism, in fact relies on extremism and terrorism.

Currently, the world is slipping into a complete destabilization that will inevitably end in a World War. This is precisely why many powers now are testing the ground. This is similar to the situation when the Soviet Union, fighting in Afghanistan, dealt not with the Mujahideen but with the Americans, Bin Laden and the American Stinger missiles.

This was an element of the global opposition and, in fact, a World War between the Soviet Union and the United States of America. The Soviet Union lost the war, was eliminated and enslaved.

We now see that the United States has dramatically increased the funding of terrorism around the world. The Americans will now act indiscriminately, that is, without consideration of whether they are giving to allies or not allies, friends or not friends. - Full Article Source

10/20/12 - How Hair Can be Used To Track Where You've Been

KeelyNet

"PBS recently ran a story about how some scientists are using human hair to trace where a person has been.

The combinations of different isotopes in water make for somewhat unique signatures from place to place. These isotopes get placed in growing hair strands which can then be traced back to identify where a person has been."

Every chemical element comes in different forms, known as isotopes, with some slightly heavier than others. Take hydrogen and oxygen, the atoms that make up water, H2O.

Their different isotopes are found in different concentrations depending on where the water comes from. And that mixture of heavy and light atoms gets laid down in the growing tissues of the animals that drink the water. These tissues include hair.

"The hair becomes a linear tape recorder," says Ehleringer. "So it tells us a little story about the history of what an animal was eating or drinking."

The scientists found that hair—and water—look different in different parts of the U.S. They can display that variation on a map with rainbow colors.

Red colors flare in Texas and Florida. The Midwest is yellow. And blue coats states like Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho.

With this information, it is possible to examine a single strand of hair, compare it to the map, and get a pretty good idea of where someone was when that hair grew. And by looking at how the isotopes change along the length of the hair, scientists can determine if someone has traveled.

In other words, our hair acts like a timeline—recording where each of us has been, and when we were there. It soon became clear that this tool could be valuable in solving crimes. - Full Article Source

A team of Japanese researchers scanned the brains of three people as they slept, and compared the scans to those of the same people looking at photos of common objects. They were then able to tell, with 75% — 80% accuracy, if one of those images appeared in a dream."

The researchers woke the participants whenever they detected the pattern of brain waves associated with sleep onset, asked them what they had just dreamed about, and then asked them to go back to sleep.

This was done in three-hour blocks, and repeated between seven and ten times, on different days, for each participant. During each block, participants were woken up ten times per hour. Each volunteer reported having visual dreams six or seven times every hour, giving the researchers a total of around 200 dream reports.

Most of the dreams reflected everyday experiences, but some contained unusual content, such as talking to a famous actor.

This covers the cost to maintain the network, build it, and pay all of the staff. The problem is, corruption has reared its ugly head.

The network itself has had its share of problems, with people dying as a result. There is also the problem that many of Chinese poor make so little money they can't afford to ride it.

The sad fact is that so much money is being spent, no one can even keep count."

If you haven’t read Evan Osnos’s lurid account of the rampant corruption within the Railways Ministry in the New Yorker, then you’re missing out. What is really striking for a PLA watcher, however, is how easily the military could be substituted for the railways ministry throughout Osnos’s portrayal.

He describes the ministry as a “state-within-a-state” that was effectively given a blank check by the central government, and which, with nothing to curb its behavior, misappropriated a mind-boggling amount of its allocation.

But if anything, the PLA is even more autonomous than the Ministry of Railways, in which senior staff routinely skimmed off millions of dollars in kickbacks even as they did a lousy job of building their new rail network.

10/20/12 - Study Shows How Prayer, Meditation Affect Brain Activity
In a video that recently aired on "Through the Wormhole" narrated by Morgan Freeman on the TV channel Science, Dr. Newberg explains that to study the effect of meditation and prayer on the brain, he injects his subjects with a harmless radioactive dye while they are deep in prayer / meditation.

The dye migrates to the parts of the brain where the blood flow is the strongest, i.e,. to the most active part of the brain.

The red part indicates greater activity, and in this case, increased activity is observed in the frontal lobes and the language area of the brain. This is the part of the brain that activates during conversation, and Dr. Newberg believes that for the brain, praying to God in the Judeo-Christian tradition is similar to talking to people.

"When we study Buddhist meditation where they are visualizing something, we might expect to see a change or increased activity in the visual part of the brain," Dr. Newberg said.

While observing atheists meditating or "contemplating God," Dr. Newberg did not observe any of the brain activity in the frontal lobe that he observed in religious people.

Dr. Newberg concludes that all religions create neurological experiences, and while God is unimaginable for atheists, for religious people, God is as real as the physical world.

"So it helps us to understand that at least when they [religious people] are describing it to us, they are really having this kind of experience... This experience is at least neurologically real." - Full Article Source

Prof Levis told The Sun: "The court decision is extremely important. It finally officially recognises the link.

"It'll open not a road but a motorway to legal actions by victims. We're considering a class action."

Mr Marcolini's tumour was discovered in the trigeminal nerve — close to where the phone touched his head.

It is non-cancerous but threatened to kill him as it spread to the carotid artery, the major vessel carrying blood to his brain.

His face was left paralysed and he takes daily morphine for pain.

10/17/12 - 4 million volts of electricity coming at you — for fun
Want to experience 4 million volts of electricity coming at you while you sit in a metal cage? The Spark Museum of Electrical Invention in Bellingham has its MegaZapper ready, plus what it says is the world's largest private collection of mankind's electrical history.

Patrons sit inside a 9-foot-tall metal cage and zap it with blue sparks carrying 4 million volts.

The professor called it a "most exciting and educational show" and said that, because of "well-established physical principles," anybody inside the cage was safe.

The professor explained that the cage is called a Faraday cage. The sparks come from a Tesla coil, in this case a big one also rising 9 feet.

The electricity doesn't go inside the cage because it spreads along the metal enveloping it.

That's why, says Jenkins, during a lightning storm it's safer to sit inside a car, at least a car made of metal. If lightning hits the car, its outer surface will carry most of the lightning.

The "Lightning Cage" was designed by Steampunk sculptor Rik Allen. On display at the SPARK Museum of Electrical Invention in Bellingham, It includes a spherical cage and a 9-foot-tall Tesla coil that generates pale-purple lightning 9 to 12 feet long.

He made sure the wire mesh enveloping the cage has such small holes that nobody could stick their fingers through it and get accidentally zapped.

One of the original plans had it looking more like a cylindrical bird cage. Now the top is rounded to point at the Tesla coil.

"It makes it look a little more dangerous," says Allen.

What it's feel like being inside the cage?

The zapping is noisy, the sparks are dramatic. It's all over in 20 seconds. - Full Article Source


10/17/12 - A123 Systems Files for Bankruptcy
The once promising maker of advanced batteries for electric cars goes for pennies on the dollar.

Once the darling of the clean-tech industry and a leading success story in the revival of advanced battery manufacturing in the United States, A123 Systems has announced that it is filing for bankruptcy and is selling off its main business, making batteries for vehicles, to rival battery maker Johnson Controls in a deal valued at $125 million.

Johnson Controls will get all of A123's automotive assets, which include its manufacturing facilities in Livonia and Romulus, Michigan, and a cathode manufacturing plant in China.

A123 has raised approximately a billion dollars over its lifetime, including a $249 million grant from the U.S. government as part of the Recovery Act of 2009 to build the factories in Michigan.

The Livonia plant was touted as North America's largest facility for producing lithium-ion automotive batteries when it was opened in 2010.

The Department of Energy said at the time that it expected the facility to create 3,000 jobs in Michigan by 2012 and help establish the United States as a "global leader" in electric vehicles.

Investors had first noticed A123 Systems because of its plans to make very high-energy lithium-ion batteries that the company hoped could increase storage capacity up to tenfold. But it quickly switched to another MIT technology, one that was easier to bring to market.

Rather than storing more energy, this technology promised to be safer and more resilient than conventional lithium-ion batteries, which in rare cases could catch fire.

Black & Decker put the batteries in its cordless power tools, and GM signed a development agreement with A123 and considered using them in its Chevrolet Volt. The company failed to win that contract but is the supplier for the Chevrolet Spark EV, due out next year. - Full Article Source

10/17/12 - Keely and the Black Hole's "Point of No Return"
"Using a continent-spanning telescope, an international team of astronomers has peered to the edge of a black hole at the center of a distant galaxy.

For the first time, they have measured the black hole's 'point of no return' — the closest distance that matter can approach before being irretrievably pulled into the black hole.

According to Einstein's theory of general relativity, a black hole's mass and spin determine how close material can orbit before becoming unstable and falling in toward the event horizon.

The team was able to measure this innermost stable orbit and found that it's only 5.5 times the size of the black hole's event horizon.

This size suggests that the accretion disk is spinning in the same direction as the black hole. The observations were made by linking together radio telescopes in Hawaii, Arizona, and California to create a virtual telescope called the Event Horizon Telescope, or EHT. The EHT is capable of seeing details 2,000 times finer than the Hubble Space Telescope."

(This reminds me of a Keely phrase used in the book 'Keely and his Discoveries. It stated 'this far shalt thou go, and no further'. Here is the relevant quote;

"6th. These same researchers have enabled Keely to pronounce definitely as to the nature of what is recognized as gravity, an ever-existing, eternal force, coexistent with the compound etheric, or high luminous, entering into all forms of aggregated matter at their birth.

Keely thinks that gravity is the source from which all visible matter springs, and the the sympathetic or neutral centre of such aggregation becomes at birth a connective concordant link to all neutral centers that have preceded it and to all that may succeed it, and that disturbance of equilibrium, like gravity, is an ever-existing force.

His researches in the vibratory sub-division of matter have revealed to him some of the mysteries of the hidden sympathetic world, teaching that 'the visible world,' as Coleridge wrote, 'is but the clothing of the invisible world;' that 'true philosophy,' as Professor George Bush said, 'when reached will conduct us into the realm of the spiritual as the true region of causes, disclosing new and unthought-of relations between the world of matter and the world of mind."

"Professor Thurston writes, in the January number of the North American Review, 'We are continually expecting to see a limit reached by the discoverer, and by the inventor, and are as constantly finding that we are simply on a frontier which is being steadily pushed further and furthre out into the infinite unknown. The border-land is still ahead of us, constantly enlarging as we move on. The more we gain, the more is seen to be achievable."

"All planetary masses Keely calls terrestrial, showing in his writings that the beauty of the celestial concordant chords of sympathy forming the harmonious connective link, in what may be denominated 'the music of the spheres,' is seen in the alternate oscillating range of motion between the planetary systems;

for at a certain range of the greater distance, harmony is established, and the attractive forces are brought into action, under the command, 'Thus far shalt thou go, and no further.'

Then in the return towards the neutral centres, when at the nearest point to each other, the opposite or propulsive force is brought into play; and 'thus near shalt thou come, and no nearer;' advancing and receding under the celestial law of etheric compensation and restoration, as originally established by the Great Creator."

This is key to Keely's research and discoveries, push, pull and balance. By using phase conjugation you can filter out only the positive (push) or the negative (pull) to produce force or a cascade of other energetic effects. - JWD)

A knowledge of the laws of Harmony (and rectification) can be intelligently used to generate interferences (collisions) in the Aether in a positive or negative manner.

Positive (constructive) interferences add to and multiply while Negative (destructive) interferences subtract from and divide frequencies. This means that we have a spectrum of creation generated from the divisions of the Aether which can be shown by the following :


   Aether slowed down and extended yields
       Magnetism slowed down and extended yields
            Electricity slowed down and extended yields
                Light slowed down and extended yields
                   Heat slowed down and extended yields
                       Sound slowed down and extended yields

10/17/12 - Commercial Amphibious Vehicle Is Part ATV Part Jet Ski
"The Washington Post reports that a new vehicle could soon be zooming out of James Bond's garage — or pond — as the Quadski, a one-person all-terrain vehicle that doubles as a personal watercraft, is being billed by its makers as the first high-speed, commercially available amphibious vehicle.

Scheduled to go on sale in the U.S. by the end of this year for around $40,000, the four-cylinder, BMW-supplied engine can drive up to 45 miles per hour on land and do a brisk 45 miles per hour in the water (video).

'You just drive straight into the water, quite fast, and keep on going. It's sort of magic,' says Alan Gibbs, the founder of Gibbs Sports Amphibians.

The company is also preparing to introduce the Phibian, a 30-foot long, 6.5-ton model, and the Humdinga, a 22-foot, 3.5-ton model, which are both intended for the military and first responders.

The company plans to produce 20 Quadskis per day with 150 employees when the plant is in full operation and expects to sell around 1,000 Quadskis in the first year. 'We'll respond to how the market develops,' says Gibbs. 'We wouldn't be doing it without being very confident people will love them.'" - Full Article Source


10/17/12 - Can we tap energy from pyramids?
KeelyNet Has anybody make work the Perpetual Pendulum on top of a pyramid that Patric Flanagan mentioned in his book?

"At a "pyramid energy" workshop that I attended in the mid seventies, Patrick Flanagan described how he could dowse the vortex energy from the peak of a pyramid on every floor directly above the apex as high as he went in a tall building. He said the energy was undiminished by distance above the apex. Flanagan developed a pyramid grid to take advantage of this apex energy. A kirlian photograph of this pyramid grid is shown..."...

"The faces in a pyramid are not needed to produce the energy, only the edges, and so a pyramid "frame" can be built. It is interesting to note that a pyramid with faces but no edges doesn't work. All the pyramid designs here are based on the great pyramid's ratios. Any pyramid will work to some degree, but the Cheops pyramid works best."

If anyone knows the details of the claim of a rotary (vortex) force (especially if it actually powered something) from the top of a pyramid, please post it, thanks!

In the Les Brown video he recounts an experiment inside his big pyramid where he was hanging a conductor from the top of his pyramid which I believe was 30 feet tall...down to about 4 feet above the floor which had an iron spike pounded down into the ground.

He connected the end of the wire to a piece of sheepskin (an excellent conductor of orgone energy) and when he touched the other end of the sheepskin to the iron spike he received an enormous electrical like jolt which threw him against the pyramid wall and it took him weeks to recover. This is recounted in his video and a Youtube video clip.

Back around 1997 or so, we (Jerry Decker, the late Joe Parr & Dan Davidson) stayed a week in Cairo specifically to do Joe's experiment.

I should tell you the purpose of Joes experiment was to stimulate and expand the energy bubble of the pyramid in hopes it would open a gateway or portal to a pyramid on another planet....much like the movie Stargate.

It ran only about an hour on one corner while we measured the bubble at another corner. Joe wanted to move to adjust the circumference of the energy bubble being created by the acoustic projector so we walked to the other corner and it was silent..someone had STOLEN the machine.

The machine was a bigass loudspeaker fed by an oscillator and amplifier to produce a constant 51hz frequency...Joe writes;

"Two fixed and one variable frequency was found which caused the Orb to be stimulated. Surprisingly one of the 3 frequencies was 51.5 Hz which happens to be the angle of the side of Cheops."

Once we realized the theft, our Egyptian guide called on the Gizeh Plateau guards, some on horseback with everyone looking all around the pyramid for the machine and the thief.

No one was found. We suspect it was an american from Chicago who overheard us talking back at our guides apartment veranda where we earlier looked out to the laser light show for the pyramids and sphinx. This guy was inordinately interested in our experiment and even when we talked privately he would strain to hear us. This american had told us he had business problems (financial) back in Chicago so needed to take a break, so came to Egypt.

Dan and I stayed and flew over to Luxor to check out the temples and sites. Then then we signed on with a convoy of jeeps and other vehicles, with military types carrying machine guns, walkie talkies and pistols.

They explained foreigners, especially americans were much hated by many so it was very dangerous to risk going on your own...our cab cost about $12 for an entire day and the driver was Mr. Habashi who spoke some english.

We rejoined the convoy to take us to the 3,000 year old Temple of Hathor at Dendera, we looked all over that place, hot and HUGE but never found the paintings we were looking for.

Finally I drew it up on a napkin and showed it to a toothless old man who I think worked there for tips. He nodded excitedly and motioned us to follow him to a bigass iron door mounted in the floor at an angle. At his waist, he had a ring with many corroded keys...he pulled a big one out and placed it in the lock on the iron door. He called two younger Egyptian guys to come lift the door and we could see a room about 5 X 10 X 30 feet down (or so) with narrow steps leading down to the bottom.

We had 6 battery flashlights and 20,000 volt stun guns for snakes...I carefully made my way down the stairs...at the end they stopped with a hole cut in the stone wall.

It was very dark and cool. The hole was about 3 feet X 5 feet, so I got on my knees and crawled through. The wall was about 2 feet thick so when I made it through, I found myself in a big dark chamber that was maybe 20 feet high X 8 feet wide and maybe 30-40 feet long.

Dan followed and we turned on our flashlights. It was very cool down there and when we shined light on the walls, we saw this very bright color paintings on every side. Remember these were painted 3,000 years ago so it was incredible they still were even there, let alone with such bright colors...clearly someone wanted to ensure these paintings would survive time as long as possible.

We walked in front of the wall to the left, shining our flashlights and inspecting the various images..most we had seen elsewhere so nothing unsual...we got to the end wall also covered with paintings and when we turned for the right wall, WHAM, there were these huge paintings of the two guys with the vacuum tubes and capacitor stacks to produce the snakes (electrical bolts) inside the two tubes. Incredible. I placed my camera on the left wall and took a photo then moved it a couple of feet and took another and another and another til I had captured the entire painting. Here is what we saw.

KeelyNet

We wanted to go to Abydos but the armed security guys said it was too dangerous and recently had been shooting at foreigners, so we couldn't go.

I have pictures of it all...and have never written the whole thing up...need to do that. So we spent 2 weeks in Luxor, then flew back to the states, via England.

About a month after we returned to the USA, on the nightly news was a report of a bus bombing in front of the Cairo Museum where we had been several times just a month before. Also at the Temple of Hatshepsut in the Valley of the Queens, terrorists had shot up a bunch of tourists (from many countries) and killed some of them. We were exactly there and it could have been us...just fortunate timing. - Full Article Source

10/17/12 - Professor Creates Inhalable Energy Supplement
The product, which works in similar fashion to an inhaler, gives its user a boost of caffeine.

After the FDA raised concerns over the wording of the product’s label, AeroDesigns “described the product a little differently” on the package, Staff said.

“Whenever there is something this innovative, there is going to be some conversation. The laws were not written with a product like this in mind.”

Edwards, who called the FDA’s June decision a “favorable opinion,” said that thousands of consumers regularly use the product a few times a week.

Heavy users of AeroShot are most often between 18 and 30 years old, with the stimulant particularly attracting athletes and college students, Staff said.

These users, he added, are made up of both men and women, “bucking the trend of energy products.” Men generally make up a greater percentage of energy product consumption.

The AeroShot model is not limited to energy supplements, according to Staff. “The ambition and the opportunity of this company is in delivering all sorts of foods and nutrients” through inhalable supplements,” he said. - Full Article Source

10/17/12 - Magic Finger input device is a camera on your finger tip
KeelyNet What if we could do away with mice and just wear a thimble as a control interface? That’s the concept behind Magic Finger. It adds as movement tracking sensor and RGB camera to your fingertip.

This concept allows Magic Finger to distinguish between many different materials. It knows the difference between your desk and a piece of paper. Furthermore, it opens the door to data transfer through a code scheme they call a micro matrix. It’s like a super small QR code which is read by the camera in the device.

10/17/12 - Tiny OLED oscilloscope gets a fancy case
KeelyNet [Gabriel Anzziani] has just unleashed a newer, more convenient version of his Xprotolab portable oscilloscope, logic analyzer, and function generator. It’s up on Kickstarter, and the price is actually very nice for a tool of this caliber.

We first saw the Xprotolab early last year and ran into [Gabriel] at this year’s World Maker Faire in New York. On both occasions we were impressed with the size and capability of this very, very small OLED-display oscilloscope and general breadboarding Swiss army knife.

The Xprotolab features a two-channel, 200 kHz oscilloscope, 8-input logic analyzer, and an arbitrary waveform generator that should be good enough for all your breadboarding adventures. On top of that, the Xprotolab can sniff SPI, I2C, and UART protocols, and even has a small spectrum analyzer tucked away in a device small enough to lose in your pocket.

The updated-for-Kickstarter Xprotolab features an enclosure with a LiPo battery good for 12 hours of use per charge. Sure, it’s not a bench full of old HP and Tektronix gear, but for the budding maker, this seems like a very useful tool indeed. - Full Article Source

10/17/12 - Money Seeks Idea
KeelyNet Venture capital is losing its impact. Corporate R&D is unproductive. So what’s next? In September’s business report, Technology Review charts whether outsourcing, X Prizes, citizen crowds, and Internet billionaires can offer the incentives it takes to unlock the next explosion of innovation.

Procter & Gamble, has actually found a way to tap into them; it now gets many of its ideas for new Swiffers and toothpaste tubes from the general public. One way it has managed to do so is with the help of InnoCentive, a company in Waltham, Massachusetts, that specializes in organizing prize competitions over the Internet.

Volunteer "solvers" can try to earn $500 to $1 million by coming up with answers to a company's problems.

We like Procter & Gamble's story because the company has discovered a creative, systematic way to pay for ideas originating far outside of its own development labs. It's made an innovation in funding innovation, which is the subject of this month's Technology Review business report.

On the Web, it's never been cheaper to start a company. You can outsource software development, rent a thousand servers, and order hardware designs from China.

That is significant because company founders can often get the money they need from seed accelerators, angel investors, or Internet-based funding mechanisms such as Kickstarter.

"We're in a period of incredible change in how you fund innovation, especially entrepreneurial innovation," says Ethan Mollick, a professor of management science at the Wharton School. He sees what's happening as a kind of democratization—the bets are getting smaller, but also more spread out and numerous.

He thinks this could be a good thing. "One of the ways we get more innovation is by taking more draws," he says.

Crowdfunding may lead to a major upset in the way inventions get financed, especially those with popular appeal and modest funding requirements, like new gadget designs.

Citizen crowds have far less to offer in capital-intensive domains such as manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, and energy. Innovation in these sectors requires investments in the tens and hundreds of millions of dollars.

What's more, the payoff time is more often measured in decades than in months. Yet R&D funding in these industries is also in transition. Manufacturers, for example, are pooling resources with government help to try to gain an R&D edge in newer areas such as 3-D printing. - Full Article Source

10/17/12 - Shut Up and Play Nice: How the Western World Is Limiting Free Speech
"In the face of the violence that frequently results from anti-religious expression, some world leaders seem to be losing their patience with free speech.

After a video called 'Innocence of Muslims' appeared on YouTube and sparked violent protests in several Muslim nations last month, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon warned that 'when some people use this freedom of expression to provoke or humiliate some others' values and beliefs, then this cannot be protected.'

It appears that the one thing modern society can no longer tolerate is intolerance. As Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard put it in her recent speech before the United Nations, 'Our tolerance must never extend to tolerating religious hatred.'"

Of course, free speech is often precisely about pissing off other people — challenging social taboos or political values.

This was evident in recent days when courts in Washington and New York ruled that transit authorities could not prevent or delay the posting of a controversial ad that says: “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat jihad.”

When U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer said the government could not bar the ad simply because it could upset some Metro riders, the ruling prompted calls for new limits on such speech. And in New York, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority responded by unanimously passing a new regulation banning any message that it considers likely to “incite” others or cause some “other immediate breach of the peace.”

Such efforts focus not on the right to speak but on the possible reaction to speech — a fundamental change in the treatment of free speech in the West.

Accustions of blasphemy are the oldest threat to free speech, but it has experienced something of a comeback in the 21st century.

After protests erupted throughout the Muslim world in 2005 over Danish cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad, Western countries publicly professed fealty to free speech, yet quietly cracked down on anti-religious expression.

Religious critics in France, Britain, Italy and other countries have found themselves under criminal investigation as threats to public safety.

In France, actress and animal rights activist Brigitte Bardot has been fined several times for comments about how Muslims are undermining French culture. And just last month, a Greek atheist was arrested for insulting a famous monk by making his name sound like that of a pasta dish.

Free speech can also be classified as hateful, discriminatory or deceitful.

The impact of government limits on speech has been magnified by even greater forms of private censorship. For example, most news organizations have stopped showing images of Muhammad, though they seem to have no misgivings about caricatures of other religious figures.

The most extreme such example was supplied by Yale University Press, which in 2009 published a book about the Danish cartoons titled “The Cartoons That Shook the World” — but cut all of the cartoons so as not to insult anyone.

The very right that laid the foundation for Western civilization is increasingly viewed as a nuisance, if not a threat. Whether speech is deemed imflammatory or hateful or discriminatory or simply false, society is denying speech rights in the name of tolerance, enforcing mutual respect through categorical censorship.

As in a troubled marriage, the West seems to be falling out of love with free speech. Unable to divorce ourselves from this defining right, we take refuge instead in an awkward and forced silence. - Full Article Source

10/17/12 - Texas Schools Using Electronic Chips To Track Students; Parents In Uproar
"Two Schools in San Antonio are using electronic chips to help administrators count and track students' whereabouts. Students at Anson Jones Middle School and John Jay High School are now required to wear ID cards using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology embedded with electronic chips in an effort to daily attendance records.

The article said the Northside Independent School District receives about $30 per day in state funding for each student reporting."

The system also improves the roll call process as it will even count students that arrive tardy to school. Under the original system, they were counted as being absent that day but the RFID counts them as those who missed the early morning roll call but actually attended class--only later.

This is not the first school system to use this type of tracking. The New York Times reports of two Houston school districts that began using tracking devices for elementary students in 2004. The article states that after expanding to the high school level, the school has so far recovered $400,000.

Pascual Gonzalez, Northside's communications director told NBC that about $1.7 million are lost a year in the district because of underreported attendance. He also said the RFID cost was $261,000 and should pay for itself within one year.

"The revenues that are generated by locating kids who are not in their chairs to answer 'present,' but are in the building - in the counselor's office, in the cafeteria, in the hallway, in the gym - if we can show they were, in fact, in school, then we can count them present," he said.

The tags only track students while on campus. Some parents expressed their concerns with the "Big Brother"-like system.

"What kind of lesson does it teach our children if they're chipped like cattle and their every movement tracked?" said Jay Stanley, senior policy analyst with the American Civil Liberties Union. "It doesn't create the kind of independent, autonomous people that we want in our democratic society." - Full Article Source

10/17/12 - Huge Geoengineering Project Violates UN Rules
KeelyNet "The Guardian reports that a massive geoengineering project has been detected off the west coast of Canada that violates UN regulations.

An Amerindian tribe in the Pacific NW that depends on salmon teamed with an entrepreneur and a group of scientists to have 100 tons of iron sulphate spread across a huge area of the ocean in order to spur plankton growth.

'Satellite images appear to confirm the claim ... that the iron has spawned an artificial plankton bloom as large as 10,000 square kilometers.

The intention is for the plankton to absorb carbon dioxide and then sink to the ocean bed – a geoengineering technique known as ocean fertilization that he hopes will net lucrative carbon credits.'

The entrepreneur, Russ George, hopes to cash in on the carbon credits and the Amerindian tribe on an increased salmon harvest. The situation has sparked outcry from environmentalists and civil society groups.

Oceanographer John Cullen said, 'It is difficult if not impossible to detect and describe important effects that we know might occur months or years later. Some possible effects, such as deep-water oxygen depletion and alteration of distant food webs, should rule out ocean manipulation. History is full of examples of ecological manipulations that backfired.'"

The dump took place from a fishing boat in an eddy 200 nautical miles west of the islands of Haida Gwaii, one of the world's most celebrated, diverse ecosystems, where George convinced the local council of an indigenous village to establish the Haida Salmon Restoration Corporation to channel more than $1m of its own funds into the project.

The president of the Haida nation, Guujaaw, said the village was told the dump would environmentally benefit the ocean, which is crucial to their livelihood and culture.

"The village people voted to support what they were told was a 'salmon enhancement project' and would not have agreed if they had been told of any potential negative effects or that it was in breach of an international convention," Guujaaw said.

"If rogue geoengineer Russ George really has misled this indigenous community, and dumped iron into their waters, we hope to see swift legal response to his behavior and strong action taken to the heights of the Canadian and US governments," said Silvia Ribeiro of the international technology watchdog ETC Group, which first discovered the existence of the scheme.

"It is now more urgent than ever that governments unequivocally ban such open-air geoengineering experiments. They are a dangerous distraction providing governments and industry with an excuse to avoid reducing fossil fuel emissions." - Full Article Source

10/17/12 - Angkor Wat Built With Help Of Ancient Canals

KeelyNet

Scientists have long known that the sandstone blocks used to build the famous Angkor Wat temple and other monuments in the ancient Cambodian city of Angkor came from quarries at the foot of a sacred mountain nearby.

But how did the 5 million to 10 million blocks, some weighing more than 1500 kilograms, reach Angkor?

Researchers report in a paper in press at the Journal of Archaeological Science that when they examined Google Earth maps of the area, they saw lines that looked like a transportation network. Field surveys revealed that the lines are a series of canals, connected by short stretches of road and river, that lead from the quarries straight to Angkor.

The roads and canals—some of which still hold water—would've carried blocks from the 9th century to the 13th century on a total journey of 37 kilometers or so. The researchers don't know whether the blocks would've floated down the canals on rafts or via some other method. - Full Article Source

"At stake is nothing less than our position in the world, our standard of living at home and our constitutional freedoms," Mr. Perot said in a statement released by the Romney campaign.

"That is why I am endorsing Mitt Romney in his quest for the presidency. We can't afford four more years in which national debt mushrooms out of control, our government grows, and our military is weakened. Mitt has the background, experience, intelligence and integrity to turn things around. He has my absolute support."

Like Mr. Romney this year, Mr. Perot made the argument in 1992 that the country needed a businessman to take control and execute a turnaround.

Mr. Perot also wrote an op-ed for the Des Moines Register laying out his thinking. He called the economy "stagnant" and pointed to the same deficit trajectory that pushed him to enter the race in 1992.

"It is this massive deficit spending that threatens to undermine our future standard of living. To pay for our government's massive debts, Washington's profligacy, our children and grandchildren will be paying interest and principal on the nation's debt for untold years into the future. That is wrong. It's not the way America ought to be," he wrote.

Two bad options for President but this says it all, Perot KNOWS the USA needs a BUSINESSMAN to run it - Ross Perot endorses Romney. People wonder why Perot dropped out of the race back then, word is he received many serious death threats towards the lives of himself and his family, so he dropped out.

10/17/12 - Tata Nano: $3,000 Car Coming To U.S. for $8,000
KeelyNet Released in 2009 as the world's cheapest car at $2,500, the egg-shaped, four seat Nano has seen a few issues in its infancy. Those issues have included concerns over the Nano bursting into flames, slow sales after its release and a lack of furnishings like heating or a cup holder. Still, the Tata group is not letting the bumps in the road temper their ambitions for the Nano's release in the U.S and Europe.

But in the process of adjusting the car to fit American standards, the Nano will end up losing its incredibly cheap price-tag, the company says.

"The structural changes that would need to be made, the changes that would be required as far as emissions are concerned, and some of the features that would be appropriate to add to the vehicle for the North American market, obviously that would drive up the price point," said Tata executive Warren Harris in an interview with the Associated Press.

Tata's billionaire chief, Ratan Tata, said the new features will include power steering, traction control, a bigger engine and "more bells and whistles."

With these additions in place, the new Nano Tata would cost around $8,000. If this price were to a hold, it would make the Nano America's cheapest car behind the likes of the Nissan Versa ($11,750) and the Hyundai Accent ($13,205). - Full Article Source

10/17/12 - Solar Flares or Cyber Warfare could shut down the world
The threat, of course, is cyber warfare, the destructive use of computers to crash large-scale computer-based systems, what experts call the critical infrastructure.

That infrastructure includes: energy, communications, financial, and transportation systems, the systems upon which our economy and nation depend. They are all computer-operated now and all are vulnerable to cyber attack.

What's more, unlike warfare of the past, attacks can come from obscure, independent, malign hackers in basements anywhere in the world. And they are at work. Pentagon computer systems are more or less constantly under attack, too often successfully.

So, in theory at least, we could have iron-clad, cover-riveted treaties with Russia, China, India, and virtually all other governments and none would protect us against the rogue hacker.

How will you know when the "cyber Pearl Harbor" has occurred? When the lights and heat in your home go off. When you can't make a phone call. When no ATM works. When your flight cannot land.

(There are supposed to be certain microwave frequencies which 'quench' the flow of electrons.

10/14/12 - Blueseed Raising Money To Park Ship Full of Startups Near SF
"How awesome would it be if there could be an environment that would be dedicated to helping entrepreneurs...grow and scale their companies that could be right here next to Silicon Valley that could be on something like a cruise ship?"

That's what Blueseed founder Max Marty asked himself during his first job out of business school, working for the Seasteading Institute.

Now, Blueseed is trying to make that floating community for startup founders a reality.

"Right now the US visa immigration system does not allow for entrepreneurs [from overseas] to come here and test out their ideas and create the new jobs and create the new companies of tomorrow," says Blueseed co-founder Max Marty, "its system was designed for a bygone era."

Marty believes that his seasteading venture Blueseed "is the solution to a problem" created by the archaic U.S. visa system, which he and co-founder Dario Mutabdizja say is starving Silicon Valley of the best and brightest international entrepreneurs.

As a "visa-free technology incubator for startups" situated on a ship 12 miles off the coast of Silicon Valley, Blueseed aims to be the "Googleplex of the Sea," a vibrant workplace for innovative industries to bloom, unencumbered by onerous regulations on new technology-sector businesses.

The project has attracted investors such as Paypal co-founder, venture capitalist and noted libertarian Peter Thiel (who once made an early investment in a little startup company called Facebook). - Full Article Source


10/14/12 - Cavitation shear kills Pathogens with Shock Waves
KeelyNet Axially fed fluid is sheared during long residence time in a radial workspace between counter-rotating coaxial disk-shaped centrifugal impellers.

Gases evolve in the fractal turbulence of a shear layer, which is forced between laminar boundary layers, and an axial suction pump axially extracts evolved noncondensibles and volatiles through cores of radial vortices in the shear layer.

Cavitation due to shear between the impellers kills pathogens by shock waves, microjets, OH radicals, and nearby UV light pulses. Oppositely charged electrodes bounding the workspace cause electroporesis and electrohydraulic cavitation.

The electrodes are counter-rotating ridged armatures of disk dynamos, forming a dynamic capacitor having audio frequency pulsed electric fields. Electrode erosion by arcing is prevented by shear between the electrodes. - Full Article Source

This version hangs objects below an electromagnet but it has a sensor system to provide a constant distance between magnet and object even if the payloads are a different weight.

This is done with a couple of infrared sensors. One acts as a reference detector, always viewing an IR LED in order to get a baseline measurement.

That measurement is compared to a second detector mounted slightly lower.

The circuit adjusts the electromagnetic field, making sure the object is always breaking the lower beam but never interrupting the reference beam.

No microcontroller needed, this is handled with a couple of OpAmps. - Full Article Source


10/14/12 - Secret Warning From the Sun
Physics and engineering professors from Stanford and Purdue have come to believe that the Sun is tipping us off in advance as to when the next big solar blast is going to hit our planet.

It turns out that certain radioactive isotopes, including manganese-54, which is used in medical diagnostics, begin to decay more slowly 24-48 hours before a flare erupts on the Sun, and therefore a good three or four days before fallout from that flare hits the Earth.

And once this solar storm hits, if it's big enough, it could change life as we know it.

The decay that concerns us here is not just radioisotopes, but civilization. According to Severe Space Weather Events: Understanding Societal and Economic Impacts, a landmark report prepared jointly by the National Academy of Sciences and NASA in 2008, our civilization is indeed in grave danger of losing its power supply; in the U.S. alone, up to 130 million of us could be forced to go without electricity for months or years due to solar blasts.

Little or no electricity would mean little or no telecommunications, water or gasoline (the pumps are electric), refrigeration, banking, emergency services, law enforcement or military security.

That's essentially the premise of Revolution, the new mega-budget NBC dramatic series produced by Hollywood mogul, J.J. Abrams. In Revolution's world, all electrical power has been lost and civilization has therefore been thrown back into a primitive, warlike, de-centralized state.

To prevent this from happening in real life, the U.S. House of Representatives voted unanimously in June 2010 to take the steps necessary to protect our nation's power supply from solar EMP. Basically, the idea is to install surge suppressors to buffer the largest transformers, which are the key nodal points of the grid.

But the Senate scuttled the legislation because of a jurisdictional dispute over which of its subcommittees had authority over the grid. Or was it that the utility industry deftly blunted what it saw as a regulatory power grab for its domain?

Expect more secret messages from the Sun real soon. It is entirely possible, even likely, that solar EMP-induced blackouts will recommence during the coming solar climax. This is the peak of the Sun's eleven-year cycle when EMP storms are at their most frequent and ferocious. - Full Article Source

10/14/12 - Seeking Perpetual Motion FIRST
KeelyNet I don't hear much about people trying for perpetual motion...they want flat out overunity...enough to DRIVE something, like a fan, a heater a bank of lightbulbs...etc...

Dan D. told me someone had calculated to make any free energy/overunity device commercially viable it needed to achieve a minimum of 300% efficiency.

That sounds about right HOWEVER we have to crawl before we FLY...so to my view, the quest for perpetual motion is valid because if we can achieve that, it shouldn't take much more to go over 100%...

Just so happens I sell 3 pdf ebooks bundled into one on perpetual motion which is pretty good. Here are some examples from those books; Perpetual Motion

Also, years ago, some of us participated in a Discovery Channel documentary called 'A Machine to Die for' which has been online now for a couple of years, see; or ;

I think people working in these areas aren't using all the modern discoveries to cancel friction.

Teflon spray, teflon panels, air or magnet bearings, supermagnets and novel patents for their use, etc..

I worked for photofinishing for over 23 years and the plague for us was scratches on film or paper....we used a lot of emery cloth to polish surfaces and promote friction free transport.

And often we'd top it off with teflon spray...man, that stuff is REALLY SLICK...just one spray accidentally on our tile floors and you'd have to mop it up with a degreaser...or everyone would bust their butts...

We also used urethane and SORBOTHANE rollers on our film machines which are big tanks of chemicals with hundreds of rollers mounted on submersible racks.

These manmade rubbery materials were super soft and I think are used to make superballs...where you drop it and it bounces almost higher than where it fell from (I know, bad english but you get the point) ;

"Shock absorbing materials may be called shock absorbing polymers, visco-elastic polymers, visco polymers or simply polymers. There are many other shock absorbent materials available like rubber, neoprene, silicone, etc. but for our purposes here we'll discuss polymer and Sorbothane specifically."

So I'm thinking use a superball like material or heck, just various sized superballs as repulsers that would kick something back almost (possibly more if arranged properly) with the same amount of force.

Always with magnets in a rotary configuration, there is the 'hump'...where it spins fine til about 350 degrees where it slows and stops...so we need a KICKER at that point...some use coil electromagnets, others solenoids, ratchets, counterweights, compressed air or other media (water, etc.), other magnets or MU type magnetic field blocking materials...by the way SILVER is a great blocker of magnetic energy...

My friend Dan York told me about this when I was in Dallas...I'd seen it before in the Peregrinus motor which Joel Mcclain sent me years ago. Before Dan was struck down with a stroke, he said he was working on using nano silver to block magnetic fields...how thick over how much surface area. - Full Article Source

10/14/12 - UTP's electric car powers up for win
KeelyNet CLEAN, quiet and energy-efficient. These are the attributes of the Saga METROTM, the electric car designed by Universiti Teknologi Petronas (UTP) students and staff.

METRO stands for Malaysian Electric Transportation Rover. The Saga METROTM is designed to provide power while being energy-efficient as demanded by motorists.

Tthe car is capable of travelling up to 140kph and a distance of over 130km with a single charge.

The electric vehicle, targeted for the urban commuter market, is equipped with a temperature device to cool the cabin.

The car's battery compartment is coated with a special fire retardant that was developed in-house.

An energy management system works as the brain of the vehicle in controlling the energy use of the electric motor and battery management system, and the auxiliaries of the driving cycle.

The vehicle is also equipped with an engine sound simulator to warn pedestrians of the oncoming vehicle, as required by current electric vehicle safety regulations.

More than RM100,000 has been invested in developing the vehicle as part of UTP's research and development activities.

UTP is hoping its invention will be taken up by the automotive industry. - Full Article Source

10/14/12 - Death row prisoner offers up his innovative technology
A death row prisoner who invented technology for renewable energy is donating his patent to the community.

Park, 49, an inmate at Daegu Prison, recently sent a letter to the Hankyoreh stating, “I have obtained a domestic technology patent with some difficulty, and there is about one month left to apply for an international patent.”

Park applied for the patent on Oct. 28 of last year and had it registered in August of this year. The technology is for a pneumatic generator/power system using the weight of a vehicle. It is installed on a highway, where passing cars trigger a generator with compressed air to make electricity.

Lee Shi-bok, a mechanical engineering professor at Pusan National University (PNU), weighed in on the patent’s technological value. “Mr. Park’s patent is for a kind of ‘energy harvest’ that collects and uses wasted energy,” Lee explained. “It’s a topic that’s been the subject of broad-ranging research all over the world.”

Noting that the technology involves using as a power source the energy that is wasted when cars pass through a tollgate or wait for a light and have to slow down, Lee said, “Even if it isn’t developed into a product straight away, it could be a bridge to inventing new technology.”

Park has been on death row for over 16 years following a homicide conviction. In his letter, he indicated that he would donate the patent rights free of charge to a company interested in applying it. - Full Article Source

10/14/12 - 120 Million Chinese own Electric Bicycles
China currently has over 120 million electric bicycles. The following is an excerpt from this policy statement addressing this fact. (Please note that I have paraphrased the Google translations for purposes of easier understanding by the reader.)

"Market demand for products in China vary from those in many Western countries. China has a multi-tired system for products, so any product which might be considered having a limited "niche market" in Western countries can and will be marketed to the masses ("mass market") in China.

The electric bicycle is a typical example. In Germany and other Western countries, their governments would very much like to be able to promote the electric bike, but due to various reasons, only a small niche market exists for electric bicycles. China, however, is different - As of 2010, China's electric bicycle ownership has risen as high as 120 million. So, what is considered a "niche market" product in the Western countries is, in reality, a "mass market" product in China.

The same market forces in Europe and the United States are in existence, "niche market", when it comes to the EV (pure electrical vehicles not hybrid); especially ones possessing short distance limitations.

China, however, sees things differently. They believe that EV's, of limited distance constraints, will become part of a "mass market" in China.

The PRC has instituted a new business model of innovation, exploring the development of short-distance electric cars in "pilot test markets", by assisting in the funding of research and development of electric vehicles in order to make the EV a mainstream product which can and will be mass marketed."

The reasons for this policy statement are many. In no particular order, they are:

Pollution widespread in many cities and getting worse as populations increase.

Needing to lessen dependence on foreign oil suppliers (currently at 50%)

Political: China's burgeoning middle class is wanting more (cars vs bicycles)

And from this article, "Tipping Point For Electric Scooters In China?", add another 31 million motorcycles and scooters by 2014. Reading all this, what comes to mind is tens of millions of shivering weather beaten riders in the North of China, and sweltering in the South, "dreaming" about riding around in an enclosed two or four passenger Kandi mini-ev with air conditioning.

It of course would not be unreasonable to surmise that the vast majority of these riders could not come close to purchasing a 15,000 rmb ($2500) to 50,000 rmb ($9000) cost (dependent on what car, battery, and subsidy program is available to those lower income groups) of a Kandi EV. On the other hand is it unreasonable to believe that at least 1%, or 1.5 million could? - Full Article Source

10/14/12 - Turn your iPhone into a Stereo View-Master

KeelyNet

This super quick hack will be fun to do with the kids. Remember the days of View-Masters? You’d put a disk of small slides into a little plastic viewer and a stereoscopic image would jump out at you in 3D! Now you can not only view stereoscopic images on your smartphone, but make your own too!

To shoot the images just hold your phone in portrait orientation and take a snapshot of your subject, then move the camera six inches to the right and take a second image.

The two pics need to be displayed on the screen at the same time and for this [Plarky] uses a free iPhone app called Pic Stitch. We’re sure you can find an Android equivalent in no time if you do a bit of searching.

KeelyNet To view the stereoscope it helps to make a divider out of cardboard like the one seen above. You’ll need to cross your eyes and focus on a point to bring the two images together.

We don’t remember having to do this with the View-Master so we’re hoping someone will take the idea and improve upon it. We’ve already seen a digital View-Master. Now we want to see those dual screens replaced with an iPhone cradle.

Mirror or Prism assisted viewing of stereoscopic pairs - Large stereoscopic image pairs on a computer screen can be seen by cross-eyed viewing. (X stereo). Beginners find cross eyes produces a headache, so an easier method has been devised.

Mirror assisted viewing (m stereo) requires one of the pictures to be flipped over. It returns to normal orientation when seen in a mirror. The normal image is looked at directly with one eye. The mirror is adjusted over the other eye until the two pictures superimpose.

This is far simpler than methods often described on the Internet such as liquid crystal shutters and flickering images. It will even work for moving pictures. - Full Article Source

10/14/12 - World's brightest minds migrate to China
KeelyNet China actively took up the issue of attracting highly skilled professionals, scientists and managers to the country. Foreigners are offered attractive conditions, and observers are already talking of this trend as the "brain drain" into the PRC. China that does not shy away from learning from other countries intends to create the "Chinese dream".

The deputy head of the State Administration for Foreign Professionals Liu Yanguo in an interview with China Daily said that China was in a full swing campaign to attract foreign specialists to active participation in the various scientific and economic areas in China.

The project designed for 10 years seeks to bring to the country 1,000 highly skilled professionals from around the world.

The program was launched last year, and of 40 experts attracted 30 started working, and the rest will be employed by the end of September.

Major areas and disciplines where professionals from abroad will work is mathematics, physics, research in the field of chemistry, environment, engineering, energy, life sciences, and business management.

Liu Yanguo said that China was very serious about the selection of candidates to work in China.

Among the requirements are age under 65, ability to work in China for at least 3 years, as well as living at least 9 months of the year in the country along with high qualifications of the candidate to be monitored by a special commission.

Yanguo also points out that, in contrast to the "American Dream", the time has come for the "Chinese Dream", which may look attractive to the best talent from around the world. Due to globalization and the rapid development of China, the country is willing to invest in the importation of foreign professional expertise, and create favorable conditions for foreigners qualified for the job.

Foreign workers coming to work in China under the project are given a grant in the amount of 1 million yuan (157,700 U.S. dollars) from the government of the PRC. Foreign researchers may also receive grants to conduct research in the amount of 3 to 5 million yuan.

China's experience in attracting highly skilled professionals from other countries will be able to raise the country's economy to a new level. Others countries, obviously, can follow the example of China in attracting the world's knowledge and technology.

Attracting professionals from abroad, China is focused primarily on the accumulation of knowledge in the most advanced fields in order to effectively use them for the benefit of the economic, military and technological power of China. - Full Article Source

10/14/12 - Many UFO researchers die under mysterious circumstances
Many UFO researchers working on their research in the 1970s and 1980s died under mysterious circumstances, and may have been killed.

This is the conclusion reached by an amateur astronomer, a former U.S. government adviser Timothy Hood. He made this statement at an international conference in Amsterdam dedicated to search for extraterrestrial intelligence.

This statement is true not so much for the chasers for unidentified flying objects, but the researchers trying to find extraterrestrial life, including professional astrophysics. Hood's conclusion was prompted by a 30-year study of this topic.

Famous American astronomer Morris K. Jessup, whose books about intelligent life beyond Earth have become bestsellers, committed suicide. He ended his life by opening an exhaust pipe in his car, locking his door and turning on the ignition. Professor James Edward McDonald, who for many years served as head of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Earth and studied unidentified aerospace objects, put a bullet in his head.

Edward Ruppelt, who led a project for the study of unidentified objects in the skies over the United States, died of a cardiovascular crisis at the age of 37.

On November 5, 2001, William Milton Cooper, a famous UFO researcher who has repeatedly accused the U.S. government of hiding the truth about UFOs, was killed by police in his home. Cooper, who clearly suffered from delusion, lived in Yeager (Arizona). He bought weapons in bulk to create units to fight a secret government led by aliens.

Before the incident the police was told that Cooper threatened harmless residents, believing, apparently, that they were chasing him on the instructions of the authorities. The police surrounded the ranch where he lived. He said that anyone who would dare to cross the threshold of his private property will be killed, but the police ignored him. As a result, one policeman was seriously wounded, and the other one had to shoot the researcher as self-defense.

There is also the famous "Sheldon list." The famous American writer Sidney Sheldon, working on his novel "The End of the World", drew attention to a series of mysterious deaths among British specialists developing space weapons.

In October of 1986, Professor Arshad Sharif killed himself by tying one end of the rope to a tree, making a loop at the other end, putting his head through it and driving the car away. A few days later another London professor, Vimal Dazibay, jumped head first from the Bristol Bridge. Both of them worked on the development of electronic weapons for the English government program, similar to the American "Star Wars."

In January of 1987, another scientist, Avtar Singh-Guide, went missing. He was later declared dead. In February of 1987, Peter Pippel was run over by his car in his garage. In March of 1987, David Sands committed suicide by crashing his car into a building. In April of 1987, four developers of space programs died. Mark Wiesner hung himself, Stuart Gooding fell victim of murder, David Greenhalgh fell off the bridge, and Shani Warren drowned. In May of that year, Michael Baker was killed in a car accident.

In a relatively short time, 25 people who worked in the space field died for various reasons. Sidney Sheldon, who discovered this tragic phenomenon, seriously believed that it had to do with aliens.

According to Timothy Hood, these deaths were not accidental, but rather, were the work of special services that eliminated the experts because they knew too much.

In the 1970's and 1980's in the United States there were secret UFO research programs such as the "Blue Book", "Aquarius", "Area 51", "Majestic 12", and GEIPAN. While official data show that most of these projects are now inactive, many conspiracy theorists doubt it.

Every now and then "sensational" materials emerge in the media whose purpose is to convince the public that the U.S. government is hiding the truth about human contact with aliens.

Perhaps it has to do not with the aliens but military secrets or falsified facts. In any case, the intrigue remains. The topic of contacts with other civilizations continues to thrill, and the perceived danger makes it even more exciting. - Full Article Source

10/14/12 - What are grand technology and scientific challenges for the 21st century?
DARPA and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy want public input on The Next Big Things.

What are the next Big Things in science and technology? Teleportation? Unlimited clean Energy?

The scientists and researchers at DARPA and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy put out a public call this week for ideas that could form what they call the Grand Challenges - ambitious yet achievable goals that that would herald serious breakthroughs in science and technology.

In defining what the government groups are looking for, Thomas Kalil, Deputy Director for Policy for the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy said that while there might not be universally accepted definition of what constitutes a Grand Challenge, they typically do have certain attributes including:

They can have a major impact in domains such as health, energy, sustainability, education, economic opportunity, national security, or human exploration.

They are ambitious but achievable. Proposing to end scarcity in five years is certainly ambitious, but it is not achievable. As Arthur Sulzberger put it, "I believe in an open mind, but not so open that your brains fall out."

Grand Challenges are compelling and intrinsically motivating. They should capture the public's imagination. Many people should be willing to devote a good chunk of their career to the pursuit of one of these goals.

Grand Challenges have a "Goldilocks" level of specificity and focus. "Improving the human condition" is not a Grand Challenge because it does not provide enough guidance for what to do next. One of the virtues of a goal like "landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth" is that it is clear whether it has been achieved.

Grand Challenges should have measurable targets for success and timing of completion. On the other hand, a Grand Challenge that is too narrowly defined may assume a particular technical solution and reduce the opportunity for new approaches.

Grand Challenges can help drive and harness innovation and advances in science and technology. I certainly do not want to argue that technology is going to solve all of our problems. But it can be a powerful tool, particularly when combined with social, financial, policy, institutional and business model innovations.

The idea of developing a list of Grand Challenges is growing almost commonplace these days as many groups try to emulate the success of government entities such as NASA, DARPA and private firms like X Prize Foundation have had in setting up successful challenges in the past. - Full Article Source

10/14/12 - Air Force Lab Test Out "Aircraft Surfing" Technique To Save Fuel
KeelyNet "It's not a totally new concept, but the Air Force is testing the idea of flying gas-guzzling cargo aircraft inline allowing the trailing aircraft to utilize the cyclonic energy coming off the lead plane — a concept known as vortex surfing — over long distances to save large amounts of fuel.

According to an Air force release, a series of recent test flights involving two aircraft at a time, let the trailing aircraft surf the vortex of the lead aircraft, positioning itself in the updraft to get additional lift without burning extra fuel."

"Early indications from the tests promise a reduction of fuel consumption by up to 10% for the duration of a flight. Over long distances and with even a small fraction of Air Mobility Command's average of more than 80,000 flights a year, the fuel and cost savings could reach into the millions of dollars," the Air Force stated.

"The concept, formally known as Surfing Aircraft Vortices for Energy, or $AVE, involves two or more aircraft flying together for a reduced drag effect like what you see with a flock of geese," said Dr. Donald Erbschloe, the Air Mobility Command chief scientist.

10/14/12 - The History of Lying With Images
KeelyNet An article at The Verge discusses a new exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art which traces the history of photo manipulation, starting in the mid-1800s.

Early photographers used simple techniques like painting on their negatives or simply forming a composite image from many painstakingly framed shots.

That period of time even had its own approximation of modern memes: "A large number of prints from that era — featuring decapitated subjects holding, juggling, or otherwise posing with their own heads — might be seen as the lolcats of their day, owing to an alluringly macabre and widespread fascination with parlour tricks and stage magic."

However, lying with pictures really took off when business and government figured out how effective it could be as a tool for propaganda. The exhibit has many examples, such as President Ulysses S. Grant's head superimposed onto a soldier's body and a different background, or another of Joseph Goebbels removed from a photo of a party.

The article likens these manipulations to more recent situations like the faked pictures of Osama Bin Laden's corpse, and often-hilarious altered ads featured on Photoshop Disasters.

10/14/12 - Frozen Grated Lemons to kill cancer cells?
Amazing frozen lemon - Many professionals in restaurants and eateries are using or consuming the entire lemon and nothing is wasted. How can you use the whole lemon without waste?

Simple.. place the lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it)and sprinkle it on top of your foods. Sprinkle it in your wine, vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, noodles, spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes. All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste, something that you may have never tasted before. Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C. Not anymore. Now that you've learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup noodles.

What's the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?

Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that's what you've been wasting. But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier. It's also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body.

So place your lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal every day. It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to live healthier and longer! That's the lemon secret! Better late than NEVER! The surprising benefits of lemon!

Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy. Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits.

You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations?

As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes. You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors.

This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.

The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas...

The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells. And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.

Snopes has this to say about the claim. To my view it can't hurt to try it. - personal email - Thanks Joel!

10/14/12 - Amputation, Impotence, Painful Dentistry: Soda Equals Sadness
When it comes to making people feel good about a brand, no one does it more skillfully than Coca-Cola. Picture a perfectly multicultural, sun-dappled chorus wanting to teach the world to sing. Or "Mean Joe Green" tossing his jersey to a young boy who offered him a Coke.

The company circulates videos of its vending machines "dispensing happiness" in the form of balloon animals and free pizza in one instance and by soliciting hugs in another. The message is that Coke equals happiness. That's pretty close to Pepsi's message, too.

Soda might have been a source of happiness when it was served occasionally in 6.5- or 10-ounce bottles. But in its current form -- the default, everyday drink at dinner, lunch and, increasingly, breakfast for so many people and in 20-ounce bottles or 32- or 64-ounce vats -- soda is actually a powerful promoter of obesity, tooth decay, diabetes, heart disease, and other problems. Some of the complications associated with diabetes, including amputation of infected limbs and erectile dysfunction, are downright depressing.

In other words, despite the industry's sunny and manipulative messages, soda is causing more than its fair share of sadness.

It wasn't so bad when soft drinks were the occasional treat. But now sugary drinks are the number one source of calories in the American diet.

With one third of America overweight and another third obese, it's a wonder anyone is still swallowing what the soda companies are selling.

10/14/12 - The FOFIVEs - Fat Old Farangs in Vests...Ewww
KeelyNet (I have a friend in his mid 70's. He lived in Mexico about 10 years and about 2 years ago he moved to Thailand. He loves it, exotic, fun and cheap to live.

"Farang" is a slang word for foreigners in Thailand.

He sent this article, written by a young tourist to Thailand, to better explain why older people should NOT give up on life. Bear in mind, the pleasures mentioned here are NOT FREE! - Thanks Jerry)

My friends and I had a beer and met some fellow farangs, stunning Aussie lasses who were up for a good time. One of them pointed out the obvious – Look at those “Fat Old Farangs in Vest – EWWWW” she exclaimed.

We had a laugh and judged the hell out of these old pigs that were holding hands with women young enough to be their great granddaughters.

But what struck me was that these guys were happy as hell.

Hardly any of them didn’t have a smile on their face and they had that look of satisfaction on their face that men everywhere chase their entire lives.

They were HAPPY damnit and they didn’t care if anyone hated, judged or frowned upon them. Firmly ensconced in their happy place the FOFIVE just go about their business they live for each day and drink, eat and screw to their hearts content.

I started thinking about the FOFIVE and began to hate the fact that I was judging people who I did not even know – I was being an ageist!

My grandad had a great life and I was sad to see him go, but what was even sadder was the fact he didn’t seem to be enjoying his last few years of his life. He struck me as lonely; the joy and zest for life he had was basically a memory.

But the FOFIVE don’t whittle away in some old age home. HELL NO! These guys are playing golf, screwing young girls and eating great food every day. They are not whittling away in some old age home watching their friends die one by one they are CHOOSING LIFE!

My grandad didn’t have one young lass take a second look at him but the FOFIVE have that – even if its not real. The FOFIVE live their life full circle – they start out as kids believing in the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus and they end their lives by believing they are young again and studs! And who the hell are we to judge them?

Should we insist they be “decent” and return home to live in an old age home with infrequent visits from their family? Should we insist that they wear more conservative clothing? Should we insist they find someone their own age? COME ON! Would you want to screw a 75 year old woman if you could get an 18 year old?

The fact is one day we will all be coffin dodgers and that prick death will come looking for us. Do you want to be in some old age home waiting for him or do you want to be inside a 21 year old hottie when he decides to tap on your shoulder?

As Renton said in Trainspotting “CHOOSE LIFE” and that’s what escapes us, THAT is what the FOFIVE have done. They have lived through live, they’ve survived what’s out there and they have earned their right to do whatever the hell they want to do with theirs and thus should be free of our judgement.

I know that if my wife dies before me I will CHOOSE LIFE – I’ll be prancing around with a young lass in my vest with my massive gut popping out.

I will see the judging eyes and the note the lack of approval in most social circles. I will be told I’m immature, going through a crisis but I will have that same FOFIVE look on my face – that look of satisfaction knowing that although Death is coming for me any day now I will die with a smile on my face (or a 21 year old hottie). - Full Article Source

10/11/12 - Tesla Coil Gun Produces Foot-Long Sparks

KeelyNet

While browsing a bookstore near his home in Seattle last year, Rob Flickenger came across a graphic novel titled The Five Fists of Science. The story portrays inventor Nikola Tesla as a crime fighter who battles his enemies with a pair of handheld Tesla coils—transformers that discharge spectacular streams of electricity into the air.

To Flickenger, 37, the guns were beautiful, hilarious, and inspiring. “I started thinking, How would I do it?” he says. An 18-volt lithium-ion drill battery would be more than enough to power the gun.

The real hurdle was engineering the gun’s circuitry to safely generate high voltages. At one point, Flickenger wound conductive copper wire around a piece of acrylic tubing 1,100 times only to realize that the tubing was too fragile and would break apart easily. His early tests had mixed results.

“I’d switch it on, and nothing would happen, so I’d switch it off. Then I’d switch it on again and set something on fire,” he says, half-joking. In fact, safety was a major priority—at first, he activated the gun via a remote switch only.

Later, he added a toggle with an arm-the-missile-type plastic hood to prevent shooting the gun accidentally. Right now, the gun’s either on or off, but Flickenger plans to make it more like the cartoon version by adding a trigger.

BUILDING A TESLA GUN
Cost: $800
Time: 9 months

POWER - The current flows into what Flickenger calls the “hockey puck of doom”—an end cap of PVC pipe filled with silicone. Inside the gun, a transformer from an old television and additional circuitry repeatedly doubles the current and then pumps it to a capacitor bank. When the six capacitors hold 20,000 volts, the gun starts firing. All that electricity still blew a few pucks, so Flickenger recently tested a mixture of silicone and hexagonal boron nitride that draws away the heat, preserving electrical components.

SPARKS - Once the electric current reaches 20,000 volts, it’s powerful enough to jump the gap between two tungsten wires inside the aluminum gun. Flickenger couldn’t find a housing strong enough to handle such a powerful spark, so he built his own out of heat-resistant porcelain. He also affixed a fan from an old computer server at one end to help cool the spark gap.

LIGHTNING - After jumping the gap, the current runs into the primary coil, eight loops of high-voltage insulated wire at the gun’s nose. The coil induces a current in the secondary coil, a piece of plumbing pipe wrapped in copper wire. The current flooding the wire creates a magnetic field, which induces an electrical field inside the doughnut-shaped aluminum ring at the gun’s nose. This field generates streaks of blue lightning. For the most part, Flickenger operates the gun in his lab with the lights off. It can go for about 30 minutes before it needs to cool down. “When it’s running, it makes the whole room smell like a thunderstorm,” he says.

SAFETY - The gun generates a lethal amount of current, so Flickenger typically sets it on his workbench instead of holding it himself. He grounds the device by clipping insulated high-voltage wire to the aluminum shell at one end, then to a nearby pipe or, if he’s outside, a metal stake planted in the soil. This ensures the current won’t run through the aluminum shell and into the inventor. “You don’t want to be the fuse in that circuit,” he says.

WARNING: We review all our projects before publishing them, but ultimately safety is your responsibility. Always wear protective gear, take proper safety precautions, and follow all laws and regulations.

When he finally got the gun working safely, Flickenger showed it off at his wedding reception, held on a friend’s property. The guests were delighted.

“There’s a corona discharge that comes off the front that’s just beautiful,” he says. “It’s almost like a fluid.” Although the gun’s not suited for fighting crime, it’s extremely popular at parties. The maximum arc draw on this run was about 12" or so.

(Don't get TOO excited with the gun photograph. Clearly time lapsed and a grounded target, much as the famous Tesla photo showing him reading a book while sitting next to a very large Tesla coil.

All those flashes of electrical bolts took place over several seconds to combine on that single photo. Now if we could do THAT kind of multiple discharge at the same time, in real time, I'd be more of a fan of Tesla coils and high voltage discharges from other sources. - JWD) - Full Article Source

10/11/12 - Energy firm uses 'land grabs' to secure fracking rights
Ranjana Bhandari and her husband knew the natural gas beneath their ranch-style home in Arlington, Texas, could be worth a lot - especially when they got offer after offer from Chesapeake Energy Corp.

Chesapeake wanted to drill there, and the offers could have netted the couple thousands of dollars in a bonus and royalties. But Bhandari says they ultimately declined the deals because they oppose fracking in residential areas. Fracking, slang for hydraulic fracturing, is a controversial method used to extract gas and oil.

Their repeated refusals didn't stop Chesapeake, the second-largest natural gas producer in the United States. This June, after petitioning a Texas state agency for an exception to a 93-year-old statute, the company effectively secured the ability to drain the gas from beneath the Bhandari property anyway -- without having to pay the couple a penny.

In fact, since January 2005, the Texas agency has rejected just five of Chesapeake's 1,628 requests for such exceptions, a Reuters review of agency data shows. Chesapeake has sought the most exceptions during that time -- almost twice the number sought by a subsidiary of giant rival Exxon Mobil, Reuters found.

Chesapeake says it only seeks exceptions to the Texas statute -- called Rule 37 -- as a last-ditch effort, and often because it cannot locate the land owner. The law, company spokesman Michael Kehs said, "protects the rights of the majority of mineral owners."

Not so, say many local residents. - Full Article Source

10/11/12 - On True Liberty

Lib - er - ty (lib-er-tee)

1. freedom from arbitrary or despotic government or control.

2. freedom from external or foreign rule; independence.

3. freedom from control, interference, obligation, restriction, hampering conditions, etc; power or right of doing, thinking, speaking, etc., according to choice.

4. freedom from captivity, confinement, or physical restraint: The prisoner soon regained his liberty.

From Comments; "He's not a complete anarchist, as far as I can gather. He only wants to get rid of the rules that are silly, as in victimless? "crimes".

Freedom also needs rules, specifically rules that stop people from infringing on OTHER's freedom.

Anything voluntary should be legal. It's quite an easy concept to grasp."

Comment #2; "We can start fixing the problem by cleaning house. And senate. When congress can stop worrying about who the president is poking or the CIA? is water-boarding and fix social security and Medicare control the borders and worry about what is going on at home not over seas we will begin recovery. It will take time to recover. It didn't get screwed up over night."

Comment #3; "No single group is responsible. We live in a democratic western way, and it is the People as a whole that are responsible. Many turn to MTV and X-Factor for entertainment and distraction, forgetting that the whole big world? is still out there, working away. As a collective planet we need to accept that we have traded our true Beliefs and ideals for cheap TV and Tabloids, and that we must rediscover what true Democracy is. That everyone is responsible."

Comment #4; "Tyranny is tyranny, whether God is the focus of those behind it or not, & escaping tyranny is the point of this country's inception, not to swap tyrannies out via a reboot of the Spanish Inquisition. Don't know how you feel about torture & murder, but all it takes is a feared enemy, a few charismatic types with good directing/FX to convince millions? that it's God's will, and pretty soon we good people are drowning "witches" and burning otherwise law-abiding "heretics" and "apostates" at the stake. - Full Article Source


10/11/12 - What if the Earth were Hollow?
KeelyNet Did the Nazis prove that Earth is hollow?

As World War II raged across Europe and the Pacific, the conflict reached every continent on the planet, including Antarctica.

Learn more about the little-known Nazi expeditions to Antarctica -- and what they hoped to find there...

In the occult fantasy, Etidorpha (available here), there are many wonderful ideas relating to gravity, aether and more. It describes a hollow earth with a neutral center, a 'Sphere of Rest' where gravity is cancelled and weight does not apply.

The writer follows a guide down through caves towards the center of the earth. The premise is the earth has an outer shell many miles thick. Gravity from above meets the oppositely 'flowing' gravity from below to cancel out halfway between the outer shell and the opposite inner shell.

They describe approaching this area of cancellation and the reducing weight and need for breathing or getting tired. They come to a cliff and jump off into the abyss. They fall ever slower until they reach and pass the area where no gravity exists.

Fortunately, inertia carries them into the increasing weight zone sufficiently to allow them to flip and land on an opposite cliff. From there they continue their journey.

"At another time, perhaps," he remarked; " we have reached the Inner Circle, the Sphere of Rest, the line of gravity, and now our bodies have no weight; at this point we begin to move with decreased speed, we will soon come to a quiescent condition, a state of rest, and then start back on our rebound."

Continued my companion: " We have just now crossed the line of gravitation. We were drawn downward until at a certain point, to which I called your attention at the time, we recently crossed the curved plane of perfect rest, where gravity ceases, and by our momentum are now passing beyond that plane, and are now pressing against the bond of gravitation again.

KeelyNet

This shell in which gravity centers is concentric with that of the earth's exterior, and is about seven hundred miles below its surface. Each moment of time will now behold us carried farther from this sphere of attraction, and thus the increasing distance increases the force, of the restraining influence. Our momentum is thus retarded, and consequently the rapidity of our motion is continually decreasing. At last when the forces of gravitation and mass motion neutralize each other, we will come to a state of rest again.

When our motion in this direction ceases, however, gravitation, imperishable, continues to exert its equalizing influence, the result being a start in the opposite direction, and we will then reverse our course, and retrace our path, crossing again the central band of attraction, to retreat and fly to the opposite side of the power of greater attraction, into the expanse from which we came, and that is now above us."

"Can this oscillation ever end? Are we to remain thus, as an unceasing pendulum, traversing space, to and fro across this invisible shell of attraction from now until the end of time?"

"No; there are influences to prevent such an experience; one being the friction of the attenuated atmosphere into which we plunge each time that we cross the point of greater gravity, and approach the crust of the earth. Thus each succeeding vibration is in shorter lines, and at last we will come to a state of perfect rest at the center of gravity."

"The outer circle, coat, or contour, of which you have heard others besides myself speak, is the surface crust of our globe, the great sphere of land and water on which man is at present an inhabitant. This is the exposed part of the Earth, and is least desirable as a residence. It is affected by grievous atmospheric changes, and restless physical conditions, such as men, in order to exist in, must fortify against at the expense of much bodily and mental energy, which leads them, necessarily, to encourage the animal at the expense of the ethereal.

The central circle, or medial sphere, the shell, or layer of gravitation, lies conformably to the outer configuration of the, globe, about seven hundred miles towards its center. It stretches beneath the outer circle ( sphere ) as a transparent sheet, a shell of energy, the center of gravitation.

The material crust of the earth rests on this placid sphere of vigor, excepting in a few places, where, as in the crevice we have entered, gaps, or crevices, in matter exist, beginning from near the outer surface and extending diagonally through the medial and inner spheres into the intra-earth space beyond.

This medial sphere is a form of pure force, a disturbance of motion, and although without weight it induces, or conserves, gravity. It is invisible to mortal eyes, and is frictionless, but really is the bone of the earth.

On it matter, the retarded energy of space, space dust, has arranged itself as dust collects on a bubble of water. This we call matter. The material portion of the earth is altogether a surface film, an insignificant skin over the sphere of purity, the center of gravitation. Although men naturally imagine that the density and stability of the earth are dependent on the earthy particles, of which his own body is a part, such is not the case ...

Earth, as man upon the outer surface can now know it, is an aggregation of material particles, a shell resting on this globular sphere of medial force, which attracts solid matter from both the outer and inner surfaces of earth, forming thereby the middle of the three concentric spheres.

This middle sphere is the reverse of the outer, or surface, layer in one respect, for, while it attracts solids, gases are repelled by it, and thus the atmosphere becomes less dense as we descend from the outer surfaces of the earth. The greater degree of attraction for gases belongs, therefore, to the earth's exterior surface."

"Tell me more of the sphere in which gravitation is most intense."

"Of that you are yet to judge," he replied. " When we come to a state of rest in the stratum of greater gravity, we will then traverse this crevice in the sheet of energy until we reach the edge of the earth crust, after which we will ascend towards the interior of the earth, until we reach the inner crust, which is, as before explained, a surface of matter that lies comformably with the external crust of the earth, and which is the interior surface of the solid part of the earth. There is a concave world beneath the outer convex world."

"I can not comprehend you. You speak of continuing our journey towards the center of the earth, and at the same time you say that after leaving the Median Circle, we will then ascend, which seems contradictory."

"I have endeavored to show you that matter is resting in or on a central sphere of energy, which attracts solid bodies towards its central plane. From this fundamental and permanent seat of gravity we may regard our progress as up-hill, whether we proceed towards the hollow center or towards the outer surface of the globe..."

We were alternately passing and repassing through the partition of division ( the sphere of gravity ) that separated the inner from the outer substantial crust of earth. With each vibration our line of travel became shorter and shorter, like the decreasing oscillations of a pendulum, and at last I could no longer perceive the rushing motion of a medium like the air.

Finally my guide said that we were at perfect rest at a point in that mysterious medial sphere which, at a distance of about seven hundred miles below the level of the sea, concentrates in its encompassing curvature, the mighty power of gravitation. We were fixed seven hundred miles from the outer surface of the globe, but more than three thousand from the center. - Full Article Source

We feel like the days when you want to play in the water are far behind us. But if you can still find a warm afternoon here or there this water rocket launcher build is a fun undertaking.

The concept is simple, but that doesn’t stop people from building rather complicated water rocket rigs.

This one which [Lou] devised is rather simple but it does offer connections to a hose and air compressor (the alternative being to fill the bottle with water ahead of time and use a bike pump for air pressure).

PVC is used to connect the two inputs to the bottle via a pair of valves. The bottle is held in place while water and air are applied. The launch happens when a pull on that rope releases the bottle.

Check out the build process and bottle launch after the break. We think that rocket needs a few fins. - Full Article Source

10/11/12 - Cloning your Drive
There are dozens of backup programs and services, many of them free. But most of these, like Google Drive, Dropbox and Skydrive, just backup your files, not your programs. Well, people want to save their programs, so let’s go further.

To back up a whole computer drive, everything included, you need what’s called a cloning program. You’ll be glad you did it if the computer goes down in a really serious way and you want your programs back. Mac users have a utility program called “Time Machine” that does that.

Windows 7 and Windows Vista users can use the operating system’s own “system image” routine to clone the drive. Click “start” on the home screen, then “help and support.” Type in “system image” and follow the instructions. You’ll need a large capacity flash drive or a stack of DVDs, to complete the backup, because there’s going to be a lot of stuff there.

For Windows XP users and those who want extra features, there’s “TrueImage 13,” a $50 cloning program from Acronis.com. To try out the most recent version, we downloaded and installed their 30-day free trial. Joy used it to back up her computer and then uninstalled four of the programs that were on the original hard drive.

These were unimportant programs and she was just doing it as a test to see if TrueImage, had indeed captured them. She then tried to reinstall them from the clone copy back to the main drive. Everything worked well and was restored except for a tiny photo editing program from Nikon. - Full Article Source

10/11/12 - Fusion Funding Request Fails To Ignite Support In Congress
"For more than 50 years, physicists have been eager to achieve controlled fusion, an elusive goal that could potentially offer a boundless and inexpensive source of energy.

Now Bill Sweet writes in IEEE Spectrum that the National Ignition Facility (NIF), now five billion dollars over its original budget and years behind schedule, deserves to be recognized as perhaps the biggest and fattest white elephant of all time.

With the total tab for NIF now running to an estimated $7 billion, the laboratory has been pulling out all the stops to claim success is just around the corner.

'We didn't achieve the goal,' said Donald L. Cook, an official at the National Nuclear Security Administration who oversees the laser project but rather than predicting when it might succeed, he added in an interview, 'we're going to settle into a serious investigation' of what caused the unforeseen snags.

On one hand, the laser's defenders point out, hard science is by definition risky, and no serious progress is possible without occasional failures. On the other, federal science initiatives seldom disappoint on such a gargantuan scale, and the setback comes in an era of tough fiscal choices and skepticism about science among some lawmakers.

'If the main goal is to achieve a power source that could replace fossil fuels, we suspect the money would be better spent on renewable sources of energy that are likely to be cheaper and quicker to put into wide use,' editorializes the NY Times. 'Congress will need to look hard at whether these "stockpile stewardship" and long-term energy goals can be pursued on a smaller budget.'"

10/11/12 - Counterfeit Air Bag Racket Blows Up
"According to Joan Lowy of the Associated Press, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has alerted the auto repair industry that tens of thousands of car owners may be driving vehicles with counterfeit air bags, which fail to inflate properly or don't inflate at all.

Although no deaths or injuries have been tied to the counterfeit bags, it's unclear whether police accident investigators would be able to identify a counterfeit bag from a genuine one. The counterfeit bags typically have been made to look like air bags from automakers, and usually include a manufacturer's logo, but government investigators believe many of the bags come from China.

Auto dealerships that operate their own body shops are usually required by their franchise agreements to buy their parts, including air bags, directly from automakers and therefore are unlikely to have installed counterfeit bags.

But only 37 percent of auto dealers have their own body shops, so many consumers whose vehicles have been damaged are referred by their insurance companies to auto body shops that aren't affiliated with an automaker.

Safety officials will warn millions of Americans that the air bags in over 100 vehicle models could be dangerous counterfeits, telling them to have their cars and trucks inspected as soon as possible.

Dai Zhensong, a Chinese citizen, had the counterfeit air bags manufactured by purchasing genuine auto air bags that were torn down and used to produce molds to manufacture the counterfeit bags.

Trademark emblems were purchased through dealerships located in China and affixed to the counterfeit air bags, which were then advertised on the Guangzhou Auto Parts website and sold for approximately $50 to $70 each, far below the value of an authentic air bag. The NHTSA has made a list of automobiles available that may be at risk for having counterfeit air bags." - Full Article Source

10/11/12 - Cycles - Will They Never Learn?
KeelyNet I just had an epiphany. I finally see what's going on at the macro level of economics and geopolitics. I have a bead on why the Western oligarchs are so panicked.

And the answer is really stupid and childish. It also explains why China is pissed at the US, why Japan was rubbed out, and why things are about to change really fast, really soon.

If you look at the calendar, you'll notice that 1998 was 60 years or so after the end of WWII. Now we turn to a decent economics textbook (if we can find one) and look up Kondratiev and Dewey.

These two men, one Russian and the other American, both came to the conclusion at roughly the same time and independently that there was a long-wave cycle in all economies of roughly 60 years in which the business cycle turned south and there was nothing to be done about it but ride it out.

Dewey noted that governments could take certain actions to lessen the pain, but the crash and burn was inevitable...like sunrise or waves on the beach.

Kondratiev said the same thing, though he didn't focus as much on state actors. Regardless, he was put in front of a firing squad since he couldn't find a way for the almighty State to stop it.

Japan's electorate decided they needed to take action, since the leadership wasn't going to. They threw out the political party which had run things since WWII. They cleaned up the financial system and overhauled the banks. But the biggest move was to tell the Anglo-American empire to go stuff its playbook.

Japan started taking action to uncouple itself from the Western train ride. They stopped hanging on every word out of the Western oligarchies and even (gasp) told the US to close down its military bases, especially Okinawa.

Conveniently, Fukushima happened and put an end to that little uprising. It got the Japanese focused on other matters and put it in the position of having to take hat in hand and go back to Uncle.

Meanwhile, China powered ahead, bringing the rest of Asia with it.

In the West, the same thing nearly happened at the same time. In 1998, the milk started to sour a bit and Wall and Fleet Streets went into high gear. They also found that nothing was going to stop the long-wave shift, but they weren't satisfied with following the laws of Nature. They had enjoyed the greatest economic tidal wave in all of recorded history, and it had put the Western oligarchs at the top of the global heap. They so coveted this position that they were determined to keep it at any cost.

Thus, the oligarchs took a page from the Pearl Harbor playbook and created a distraction. It was big enough and shocking enough that it would be sufficient reason to create a war long enough to power through the long-wave negative cycle. Everyone knows war is good for business. It blows off assets and is cause to crank up the factories and dig a little deeper in taxpayer pockets. But they hadn't figured on a couple of things.

Ramping up production when all of your factories are overseas does nothing to keep the home fires burning, and part of the natural long-wave cycle is the repudiation of debt and the transfer of wealth. They are as inevitable as death following birth.

Because of the huge amount of wealth that had accrued to the West during the preceding 60 years, they have been able to float the boat for a short while, but they are quickly coming up against one of those glorious Natural boundaries that remind us that we don't know everything yet.

The Department of Homeland Security’s budget for fiscal 2013 is just over $59 billion, a little less than the current budget but almost $5 billion more than the 2011 budget, according to government figures.

In a statement announcing the new spending plan, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said that more than $850 million had been moved “to front-line operations” from administrative functions like “information technology, travel, [and] overtime.”

Among other efficiencies, Homeland Security is consolidating its various state and local government grant programs, which will dole out $2.9 billion next year if the budget is approved.

The budget includes $769 million to improve the cyber security of U.S. government civilian computer networks, and $117 million for scanners and other security technology at airports.

A little more than $10 billion of the agency’s budget comes from user fees paid by immigrants, air travelers and others, and from separate, mandatory funding such as the FEMA Disaster Relief Fund. The other $48 billion comes from taxpayer funds.

10/11/12 - Rape and Abuse of Computer BBS's by Inconsiderate Users
KeelyNet I and many other Sysops remember this problem very well. Kind of fun to read about it again;

"Never tell the truth to people who are not worthy of it." - Mark Twain

I found this sad document while scanning for new information for the KeelyNet. It really HIT HOME after I did some checking of our users and how often they contribute.

Ron and I have frequently discussed the surprising number of leeches out there. We think of them as "Black Holers". Since they absorb anything and everything with absolutely nothing given in return. Yet there are others who share information with us far beyond what we give in return.

We are very much indebted to these few individuals yet it sickens us to see people who make no attempt to upload ANYTHING, no matter how seemingly trivial or lengthy.

The KeelyNet was intended as a text based BBS to exchange info on subjects not normally covered by such advanced means of information exchange. Yet we find that we end up locating, arranging and laboriously typing up the majority of what winds up on our board. (A full page scanner would be fantastic!)

Needless to say, this involves more time and effort than money, yet we do not charge or require money in order to sustain the effort in keeping the board alive and active.

We also do not advertise the existence of our board except to those we feel might sense a higher calling in their lives or be able to exchange information of benefit to ourselves and our users.

It is not our purpose or intent to lay any type of guilt trip on anyone, especially those who find a resonance in our activities.

We must rely on the higher consciousness present in each person to act as teacher and guide in helping to develop our ability to treat others as we ourselves wish to be treated.

Keely's comments on harmony and relationships (AUGFORCE.ZIP and GNOSTIC.ZIP) illustrate how we all resonate to higher forces if we will simply YIELD TO IT.

At any rate, we trust in the principle of compensation. Thank you for your time, efforts and thoughts in this matter.

Located in Texas, the Keelynet BBS was dedicated to delving into the paranormal or "odd" science, whether it be new medical therapies, UFOs, psychic happenings, or someone finding old articles which brought up a topic not covered in recent times. The SysOp, Jerry Decker, has always encouraged skepticism but never takes the excuse of "if someone hasn't done anything with it yet, it's not worth doing" that has stopped so much exploration in new ideas.

These files have often shown up on lots of BBSes, stripped of their headers, or alone without any companion files that included skeptics or additional information. We're happy to have pretty much the whole collection from the BBS days of Keelynet up in this section.

The collection here is arranged as it was in the file archives that Keely makes available for users to download. Some files could arguably be in other sections, but they all pretty much stay on topic.

KeelyNet has gone on to find a new life as a website located at www.keelynet.com. It's worth checking out, as Jerry expands his reach and quest for information onto the Internet. - Full Article Source

10/08/12 - Oatmeal Fundraiser a Success; Non-Profit Buys Land For Tesla Museum

KeelyNet

Ars Technica reports that The Oatmeal's successful fund-raiser has borne fruit; on Friday the non-profit to which Oatmeal founder Matthew Inman's Indiegogo campaign's money was directed completed part of its goal to purchase and turn into a museum Nikola Tesla's former estate Wardenclyffe.

There's plenty of work before the land can be a proper museum, but now it is in the hands of the non-profit organization Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe.

The New York Times reports that Inman’s fundraiser saw donations from residents of over 100 different countries.

Inman donated the proceeds of the fundraiser to the nonprofit, which purchased the Long Island property from the Agfa Corporation. The corporation used the land from 1969 to 1992, but decided to put it up for sale in 2009.

Ars noted at the beginning of Inman’s fundraiser in August that Wardenclyffe, as Tesla called his estate, was originally intended to be, “a vector for trans-Atlantic wireless communications, broadcasting, and wireless power.

The site consisted of an (incomplete) 18-story-high transmission tower that topped off a laboratory surrounded by 16 acres of land in Shoreham, Long Island in 1903.

By 1917, Tesla had sold the site for $20,000 to pay bills at the Waldorf. That same year, the transmission tower was blown up by the buyers and sold for scrap.”

Now that papers have been signed for the purchase of Wardenclyffe, the ruins of Tesla’s brilliant scientific career will be dusted off and presented to people who’ve admired the scientist’s work for decades.

The property is listed at $1.6 million, and this non-profit has received a matching grant from New York State of up to $850k. This means that if we can raise $850k, New York State will match us for that same amount -- putting the total raised at $1.7 million.

Using crowdsourcing site Indigogo, the promoters asked for $850,000 and due to enthusiastic networking and marketing, the total raised was 1.37 million dollars. - Full Article Source

10/08/12 - Navy turns sea water into jet fuel
Last year the US Naval Military Sea Lift Command, the main fuel supplier to Naval vessels that are at sea, delivered around 600 million gallons to ships that were on the open water.

The NRL has designed a system which harvests carbon dioxide and hydrogen, the raw ingredients of jet fuel, from the seawater.

NRL discovered that gathering carbon dioxide from the seawater was far more efficient than getting it from the air because the concentration in seawater is 140 times greater.

The hydrogen and carbon dioxide go through several processes to create olefins (a hydrocarbon), and then two more steps to turn the olefins into suitable jet fuel.

So far the lab tests have indicated that the process will produce jet fuel at a cost of around $3 - $6 per gallon. Now all that is needed is large scale tests on the open sea. - Full Article Source

10/08/12 - Spin Cell generates 20 times more power than flat panels
KeelyNet V3Solar has developed a new way to convert the sun's energy into electricity using traditional technology in a new way, and in so doing have discovered a way to get twenty times more electricity out of the same amount of solar cells.

Their new device, called the Spin Cell, does away with the traditional flat panel and instead places the solar cells on a cone shaped frame which are then covered with energy concentrators. Once in operation, the whole works spins, making unnecessary the need for tracking hardware and software. What's more, they actually look nice.

Because of the great potential of solar energy, researchers have looked into increasing the efficiency of solar cells by using lenses or mirrors to direct more of the sun's energy onto them hoping to get more electricity out of the same number of cells.

Unfortunately, doing so tends to create so much heat that the cells become useless. The engineers at V3Solar took this idea and modified it to prevent such overheating by mounting the cells on a rotating platform; doing so means that each cell only receives extra heat for a very short amount of time and is then allowed to cool as the cone spins.

The concentrators form an outer skin creating a hermetically sealed inner environment for the triangular shaped blue colored solar cells. The cone is situated on a base of electromagnets powered by some of the energy that has been converted from the sun's energy by the solar cells, creating a nearly frictionless spin.

The result is a marvel of engineering and an artistic triumph – a means to produce much more electricity than traditional flat panels in a pleasing, and as the company says, beautiful way.

The only shadow on this bright idea might be the price. The company hasn't said just yet how much each cone will cost, but surely it will be far more expensive than a flat panel.

The question is, will the cost for one be equal to or less than twenty traditional panels, making them cost justifiable?

Only time will tell of course, but in the meantime, no doubt many will have their fingers crossed as the cones actually look like something out of a science fiction movie, and that will surely be reason enough to have many rooting for them.

This is the Spin Cell by www.V3Solar.com. More information is on the website.

We have third party documentation that outer lensing (not shown on this video) can concentrate the sunlight 20X, without adding to the heat.

Light is transferred in nanoseconds and heat is transferred in milliseconds (1000X longer). The spin cell absorbs the light and spins away before the heat has time to be transferred.

(Cool, it kind of 'scans' light to increase power. - JWD) - Full Article Source


10/08/12 - Boarding Gate With Built-In Explosives Detector
"Hitachi, in collaboration with Nippon Signal and the University of Yamanashi, have successfully prototyped a boarding gate with built-in explosives detection equipment as part of efforts to increase safety in public facilities such as airports.

The prototype boarding gate efficiently collects minute particles which have affixed themselves to IC cards or portable devices used as boarding passes, and can detect within 1-2 seconds the presence of explosive compounds using internalized equipment.

With this method, it is possible to inspect 1,200 passengers per hour."

The technology is expected to contribute to the prevention and containment of carry-on explosives as it inspects immediately prior to boarding without disrupting the flow of passengers, and provides increased security without affecting convenience.

As this equipment can be adapted to entrance security equipment for train stations, stadiums, event halls, etc. in the future, it is expected to contribute as platform technology to achieving the safety and security of public spaces. - Full Article Source

To better understand this TED talk, please read this file on Gnosticism vs. Agnosticism - don't let the title put you off, it is full of incredible information. Here is an example;

To illustrate : we will picture a beggar asking alms of a richly dressed gentleman, who passes by entirely oblivious of the suppliant's needs; but here the wonderful law of sympathetic action intercedes, making the wealthy individual comprehend the necessitous condition of the pauper.

At this point the EGO enters the chamber of ordeal; here, in commonplace life, in every-day surroundings, man is tried; this is INITIATION.

The well-to-do man goes on his way, not caring to stop, hurried perchance by the urgency of worldly affairs; the chord-setting representing that differentiation of infinite force called by us COMPASSION, acting upon its concordant chord-setting, loudly proclaims to the EGO what is right action, and the opportunity passing when it should be seized, powerfully exerts its force against the will of the personality that would suppress its action.

Here is where the battle is fought; simple though the illustration may appear, it forcibly sets forth the actual conflict continually waging between divine wisdom and mortal error, carelessness, and ignorance.

The man of wealth and position goes on, perhaps, for some distance, the battle all the while continuing; finally, he stops and turns back, he yields to the dominating influence of that chord-setting; he gives the beggar alms and goes on his way with the skies bright above him: he has won a battle he will not have to fight again.

Understand that victory is won, not by the giving of alms, but by YIELDING to that divine force-differentiation.

If this chord-setting had not retained its dominance, it would only require a few instances of the above type to render it latent, and when latent the person is no longer amenable to influences calculated to arouse compassion.

In like manner, other centres may be rendered latent by repeated suppression, until we find a person so dead to all appeals from the various chord-settings that his whole course in life is represented by the sum-total of the antagonisms internally produced: results proving this are seen every day.

You ask why do people commit such blunders and perform such acts as they do, all the while seemingly unable to help themselves.

The reason is that they have RENDERED LATENT these centres which otherwise would have given them the power to rightly control their deeds instead of being, as they now are, dominated exclusively by the forces of aggregated matter which we usually call the self-will of the outer personality, as distinguished from the distinctly humane individuality which always responds to a divine appeal.

It can be readily seen from this example that a man can mould himself practically as he chooses; though he may have to encounter many obstacles erected by himself in past periods of earthly existence, as he comes to earth anew with these chord-settings latent, or developed to the extent they were so, at the conclusion of his last earth-embodiment; a man has therefore only to carefully examine the condition of these settings to learn whether they are latent or developed:

if latent, he knows well that if he yields to the dominance of the chord-settings of the supreme force-and he needs no monitor other than these to instruct him, their voice being loud-toned, full, strong, deep, and high-to carry him on to the consummation of his highest ideal,

their suppression leading him to the lowest condition in which we behold that section of humanity which is dominated by the action of the blind forces inherent in aggregated matter,-forces which are at all times powerfully and intimately associated with every one who possesses a material body.

The work of arousing to activity the latent chord-settings is sometimes equivalent to giving birth to an entirely new condition in the person, the intellect and the imagination having to actively co-operate in the endeavor to produce even the minutest degree of activity.

10/08/12 - 'No proof' vitamin D stops colds
A New Zealand team did the "gold standard" of tests - a randomised placebo-controlled trial - to see what impact the supplements would have.

The 161 people who took daily vitamin D for 18 months caught as many colds as the 161 who took fake pills.

Prof Ronald Eccles, of the Common Cold Centre at Cardiff University, said it can give the immune system a much-needed boost during winter when vitamin D reserves may be low.

He said he takes it every year as a precaution.

We get most of our vitamin D from sunlight on our skin, but it is also found in certain foods like oily fish, eggs and breakfast cereals.

Most people should be able to get all the vitamin D they need by eating a healthy balanced diet and by getting some summer sun.

The vitamin D group caught an average 3.7 colds per person compared with 3.8 colds per person for the placebo group.

There was no significant difference between the two groups in the number of days missed off work as a result of cold symptoms or duration of symptoms.

Adults catch between two to four colds a year and children up to 10 a year.

10/08/12 - 'Electric' logs kill pests
University of Canterbury researchers say they have made a breakthrough by using high voltage electricity to heat export logs and kill any pests they are carrying.

This is one of a number of research initiatives underway to find alternatives to using methyl bromide to fumigate logs and timber to kill insect pests and fungi.

The university's electric power engineering centre, Allan Miller says heat treatment using kilns or steam is accepted as a quarantine treatment for logs and timber being shipped to the USA and other countries, but using electricity is a new approach.

"We're trying to ... heat logs in order to kill the bugs," Dr Miller says.

"We're trying to do that by applying a high voltage to either end of the log: it's like a one-bar heater, and the current heats the log up and kills the bugs on it.

"We've tested a number of full-sized logs and have successfully managed to get them up to the temperature required to kill the bugs - just above 50 degrees Celsius.

"Then we've taken samples of the timber .. there doesn't appear to be any degradation".

As well as electrical heat treatment, researchers are working on a cold sterilisation technique, using electron beams that convert electrical energy into x-rays to kill pests. - Full Article Source

10/08/12 - Energy's future not wind
If wind power is so great, why did the wolrd so quickly embrace modern means of energy generation as soon as it became available?

For thousands of years sailors used wind power to move about the globe. Their departures, routes and arrivals were always dictated by the capricious nature of the winds.

With the invention of the steam engine, fueled by wood or coal and later oil and nuclear fuel, sailors had overcome their dependency on the unreliable winds to move about the globe and maneuver during storms. This was progress.

When people turn on their lights they expect them to come on. They don't want to be told that they have to sit in the dark without their lights, television, heat or air conditioning for part of the day because there is no wind or the wind is blowing too hard.

I don't think that they would agree that dependency on an old-fashioned, unreliable power source represents progress.

Most importantly, due to the laws of physics, electricity is one of the few, (or only), products in this world that must be consumed at the same instant it is manufactured.

You must have an operating electrical generator working when the people demand the power and if people don't require electricity, the generator must be shut down. You, or your utility, cannot save it or store it.; (other than the small batteries in your cell phone, flashlight or laptop computer).

Unlike other products which can be saved in warehouses, tanks or silos, electricity must be used immediately. Most people have absolutely no concept of how electricity works and even fewer, including those who build power plants, understand this basic principle of physics.

All they know is the lights come on when they throw the switch, that they pay the electric bill each month, and that electricity can kill them.

However, any person writing about, or taking an editorial position about the benefits of alternative electrical energy sources, such as wind or solar power which can be intermittent and unreliable, should understand this basic principle before they take pen to paper. - Full Article Source

10/08/12 - Liquid Air to store Electricity
A plant is being built in Slough in Buckinghamshire to pilot the effectiveness of a process that freezes air to -190, at which point it liquefies.

When the liquid is warmed, it expands fast into a gas, creating pressure that can power a piston engined car or drive a turbine.

This innovation solves one major issue in energy storage – it stores in what is effectively a compressed form.

Storage systems for energy are mission critical if we are to avoid the brown outs now openly predicted for 2015 onwards, with our insufficient spare energy capacity.

This invention is both a source and a storage system. The experts seem both sanguine and excited by this potential.

There is no mention yet of the specifi8c risks involved in this process. They will exist and their sources can be intuited.

The process follows a number of stages: First the "Wrong-time electricity" is used to take in air, remove the CO2 and water vapour (these would freeze otherwise).

In doing so the remaining air, mostly nitrogen, is chilled to -190C (-310F) and turns to liquid (changing the state of the air from gas to liquid is what stores the energy).

Then the liquid air is held in a giant vacuum flask until it is needed. When demand for power rises, the liquid is warmed to ambient temperature. As it vaporizes, it drives a turbine to produce electricity - no combustion is involved.

IMechE says this process is only 25 percent efficient but it is massively improved by co-siting the cryo-generator next to an industrial plant or power station producing low-grade heat that is currently vented and being realised into the atmosphere.

Highview believes that, produced at scale, their kits could be up to 70 percent efficient, and IMechE agrees this figure is realistic. - Full Article Source

10/08/12 - 12 step DIY solid state Tesla Coil
Tesla Coils are always a blast to see and are relativity simple to build. While there are plenty of sites on the subject, [Michael's] newest instructable breaks building a solid state Tesla Coil down to 12 easy steps.

Items that should be familiar to anyone who has even looked at a Tesla Coil include PVC pipe, Aluminum ducting, and wire … lots of wire.

The PVC pipe is cut to length and a flange is attached to help form a base. From there the pipe is wound with about ¾ of a pound of 30 AWG enameled wire, which takes some time by hand to make sure you don’t overlap or get space between the coils.

Aluminum ducting is then wrapped around the outside of a second flange.

Some stovepipe wire is ran though the ducting and twisted to close up the 2 ends, and hot glue is used to attach the two ends together.

The assembly is screwed to the top of the pipe now containing the secondary of the massive transformer. All that is left is to attach a primary, which is made out of a few turns of 16 AWG wire, and the control circuitry. - Full Article Source

The can used in this project was actually sardines in tomato sauce, but the former contents are moot.

The can serves as a steam chamber for the sterling engine.

A cam rod, piston, and valve are all fashioned from paperclips, along with the support structure that holds them in place. Inside the can is a damp sponge.

When an alcohol lamp is placed beneath the can it heats the water air inside, which creates pressure on the piston, pushing it up until the cam opens the valve, relieving pressure just in time for the cycle to start over again.

10/08/12 - Neosporin…the Retrobright for bench equipment?
KeelyNet linux-works] picked up an old power supply from eBay, and as it was built back in the 60’s or 70’s, it was in need of a little TLC.

One thing that immediately caught his eye was the condition of the knobs, dials, and banana plug receptacles – they were dull and faded, showing off 40+ years of heavy usage.

He started off by simply removing the knobs from the power supply, giving them a thorough cleaning with soapy water before leaving them to air dry. They didn’t look any better afterward, so he decided to take a different approach and apply some triple antibiotic ointment to the knobs.

As it turns out, letting the ointment sit for a few minutes then wiping the knobs with a soft cloth really made them shine, as you can see in the image above. [linux-works] attributes the effect to the white petrolatum base of the product rather than the antibiotics, likely making a wide array of products equally suitable for the job.

We know how well Retr0bright has worked for the vintage computer folks, so we’ll be interested to see how long the effects of the triple antibiotic treatment last. It certainly can’t hurt those readers who spend their time perusing flea markets in search of classic electronic equipment. - Full Article Source

10/08/12 - Flashing LEDs protect livestock from lion attacks
KeelyNet When we think of defense against lion attacks, the first thought is usually guns. Lots and lots of guns. [Richard Turere], a 13 year old Kenyan tinkerer with neither books nor any technical education, has come up with something entirely different – He’s keeping the lions at bay with a solar powered system of flashing LEDs. Yup. Flashing LEDs.

Since he and his family live next to Nairobi National Park, lion attacks are an ever present danger. The only defense systems available were far too expensive for his family to afford, so he decided to build his own.

He utilized the basic resources he had readily available: LED bulbs removed from broken flashlights, some switches, an old car battery, wire, and a solar panel that also operates his family’s TV.

The results speak for themselves. His family has had no lion attacks in over two years, and at least five of his neighbors believe in the system enough to have had him install it on their fences too.

With the cost for this set up at less than ten dollars, and all the parts being readily available, this rather basic electrical system is an amazing breakthrough for the Kenyan pastoralists.

10/08/12 - Russia to liberate the world from US occupation
A State Duma deputy, the head of the Committee on Economic Policy and Entrepreneurship of the Russian State Duma, Yevgeny Fyodorov, told Pravda.Ru of his impressions from visiting the APEC summit in Vladivostok. According to him, the meeting showed that the U.S. gradually loses absolute power in the world economy and politics. The power and influence of other countries, such as Russia and China, grows against such a background.

It is clear that it is not a split - everyone still plays by American rules, but the countries already demonstrate their independence in economic policy.

I was there and saw how angry Mrs. Hillary Clinton was when she came from China, where several Chinese leaders - especially those who are to become top officials of China next year - did not even want to meet her. In China, Clinton was told no when she wanted to take on mediator's functions in resolving China's territorial disputes with Asian countries.

She also heard no in response to her requirement to set the yuan rate. It is an annual requirement of the United States to China to set the yuan rate for political reasons to pump resources and opportunities from China to the U.S.

It is an additional form of tribute from China, which China had to deal with every year for political motives. Nowadays, the U.S. was refused. The world is changing.

Russian President Vladimir Putin clearly expressed his attitude to the dollar as the world reserve currency. In fact, he offered the countries of the world to start building a large number of regional currencies as an alternative to the reserve system of the dollar.

This is a strong step and a strong move, including the initiative to switch to mutual payments. He also said that Russia and China had already switched to the system and he urged other countries to follow the example.

This shows that the world begins to change fundamentally, and Russia's role at this point is to become the leader in changing the world. I would say that Putin as the leader of the national liberation movement in Russia, demonstrated himself at the event as a leader and provider of ideas for the world national liberation movement against the system of occupation, which was formed after 1991 not only about Russia but also China and many other countries.

From this point of view, it is the key and turning meeting of the leaders of world's largest economies, which creates conditions to reformat the entire economic system of the world - moving away from the U.S.

Do not forget that the U.S. consumes a half the world's GDP, despite the fact that there is only 4.5 percent of the population living there.

In other words, they eat ten times as much as compared to the citizens of all other countries. And they eat at the expense of China, Russia, India, Brazil - all other countries.

Today, the world begins to unite against the colonizer - USA. For the time being, it is a conceptual and preparatory process, but it takes place. - Full Article Source

10/08/12 - Electric Car Environmental Impact: Power Source Matters
The Norwegian University of Science and Technology, which looked into the environmental impact of electric vehicles — not just how they do when driven, but how they are produced and by what means they are charged.

The study pointed out that the production of EVs has twice as much of an environmental impact as the production of typical gas-powered cars, which must be taken into account when comparing the two.

Also, they say it's important to consider the source of the electricity used to charge the vehicles. In places like Europe, where a good chunk of the electricity comes from renewable sources, EVs do indeed provide a benefit to the environment.

However, "In regions where fossil fuels are the main sources of power, electric cars offer no benefits and may even cause more harm."

The study says, "It is counterproductive to promote electric vehicles in regions where electricity is primarily produced from lignite, coal or even heavy oil combustion. - Full Article Source

10/08/12 - Astronomers Search For Dyson Spheres of Alien Civilizations
KeelyNet "An article by Ross Andersen makes note of Freeman Dyson's prediction in 1960 that every civilization in the Universe eventually runs out of energy on its home planet, a major hurdle in a civilization's evolution.

Dyson argued that all those who leap over it do so in precisely the same way: they build a massive collector of starlight, a shell of solar panels to surround their home star.

Last month astronomers began a two-year search for Dyson Spheres, a search that will span the Milky Way, along with millions of other galaxies.

The search is funded by a sizable grant from the Templeton Foundation, a philanthropic organization that funds research on the 'big questions' that face humanity, questions relating to 'human purpose and ultimate reality.' Compared with SETI, a search for Dyson Spheres assumes that the larger the civilization, the more energy it uses and the more heat it re-radiates.

If Dyson Spheres exist, they promise to give off a very particular kind of heat signature, a signature that we should be able to see through our infrared telescopes. 'A Dyson Sphere would appear very bright in the mid-infrared,' says project leader Jason Wright.

'Just like your body, which is invisible in the dark, but shines brightly in mid-infrared goggles.'

A civilization that built a Dyson Sphere would have to go to great lengths to avoid detection, building massive radiators that give off heat so cool it would be undetectable, a solution that would involve building a sphere that was a hundred times larger than necessary.

'If a civilization wants to hide, it's certainly possible to hide,' says Wright, 'but it requires massive amounts of deliberate engineering across an entire civilization.'"

10/08/12 - Why Worms In the Toilet Might Be a Good Idea
"Billions worldwide still don't have access to proper sanitation, and those that do still require a ton of water and electricity to keep waste flowing.

A French company is offering one solution: Use turd-eating worms to compost waste right at the source. Ecosphere Technologies has developed an outhouse that, rather than relying on chemicals like a port-a-john, relies on about a pound of red wiggler worms.

A new installation in Quebec uses imported worms, placed inside of a mixture of dung and straw underneath to toilet, to devour feces delivered to them by a conveyor belt system.

(When someone uses the toilet, pee filters through sand to wash away, while a pedal allows the user to transport their poo to the worm space.)

The whole system uses no water or electricity, and a series of passive vents allegedly keeps the toilet smelling great.

The company claims it can be used 10,000 times without servicing, which is far better than what a port-a-potty can boast, although with a current price tag of $40k for the worm system, port-a-potties are still a lot cheaper." - Full Article Source

10/08/12 - We Don't Need More Highways
KeelyNet "When it comes to infrastructure, politicians usually prefer shiny new projects over humdrum repairs. A brand-new highway is exciting: There's a ribbon-cutting, and there's less need to clog up existing lanes with orange cones and repair crews.

So it's not surprising that 57 percent of all state highway funding goes toward new construction, often stretching out to the suburbs, even though new roads represent just 1.3 percent of the overall system.

Now Brad Plumer writes in the Washington Post that many transportation reformers think this is a wrong-headed approach and that we should focus our dollars on fixing and upgrading existing infrastructure rather than continuing to build sprawling new roads).

UCLA economist Matthew Kahn and the University of Minnesota's David Levinson made a more detailed case for a "fix-it first" strategy.

They noted that, at the moment, federal highway spending doesn't get subjected to strict cost-benefit analysis, and governments often build new roads when they arguably shouldn't (PDF).

And that's to say nothing of data suggesting that poor road conditions are a "significant factor" in one-third of all fatal crashes, and cause extra wear and tear on cars." - Full Article Source

KeelyNet "Ars Technica has a story about a 52 year old man who was arrested and sentenced to three years in jail for shining a high powered green laser at a helicopter along with an interesting video showing how he was tracked down.

The FBI says that laser strikes are becoming epidemic, saying that they expect to see reports of 3,700 of them this year."

You may not be the kind of person who gets his kicks by standing at the end of a runway and firing a small laser into the cockpit of jets during their takeoffs and landings—but plenty of other people are. In 2005, the FBI only heard about 283 such incidents; this year, it expects to record 3,700.

In an official blog post about the topic, the FBI quotes federal air marshal George Johnson saying that the laser attacks have reached an "epidemic level."

Things have gotten so bad that the FBI has created a special group to address the issue, one with the unwieldy name "Laser Strike Working Group National Initiative" (which could use a laser strike of its own).

By viewing those employees who come in over the weekend or stay late in the evening as more 'committed' and 'dedicated' to their work, as a UC Davis study showed, managers create a perverse incentive to not be efficient and get work done during normal business hours.

10/08/12 - Your right to resell your own stuff is in peril
Tucked into the U.S. Supreme Court’s agenda this fall is a little-known case that could upend your ability to resell everything from your grandmother’s antique furniture to your iPhone 4.

At issue in Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons is the first-sale doctrine in copyright law, which allows you to buy and then sell things like electronics, books, artwork and furniture, as well as CDs and DVDs, without getting permission from the copyright holder of those products.

Another likely result is that it would hit you financially because the copyright holder would now want a piece of that sale.

It could be your personal electronic devices or the family jewels that have been passed down from your great-grandparents who immigrated from Spain. It could be a book that was written by an American writer but printed and bound overseas, or an Italian painter’s artwork.

The case stems from Supap Kirtsaeng’s college experience. A native of Thailand, Kirtsaeng came to America in 1997 to study at Cornell University. When he discovered that his textbooks, produced by Wiley, were substantially cheaper to buy in Thailand than they were in Ithaca, N.Y., he rallied his Thai relatives to buy the books and ship them to him in the United States.

He then sold them on eBay, making upward of $1.2 million, according to court documents.

Wiley, which admitted that it charged less for books sold abroad than it did in the United States, sued him for copyright infringement. Kirtsaeng countered with the first-sale doctrine. - Full Article Source

10/05/12 - Levitating lightbulb does it all with no wires
KeelyNet It would be really fun to do an entire hallway of these levitating wireless lights. This a project on which [Chris Rieger] has been working for about six months.

It uses magnetic levitation and wireless power transfer to create a really neat LED oddity.

Levitation is managed by a permanent magnet on the light assembly and an electromagnetic coil hidden on the other side of the top panel for the enclosure. That coil uses 300 meters of 20 AWG wire.

A hall effect sensor is used to provide feedback on the location of the light unit, allowing the current going to the coil to be adjusted in order to keep the light unit stationary. When working correctly this draws about 0.25A at 12V.

Wireless power transfer is facilitated by a single large hoop of wire driven with alternating current at 1 MHz. This part of the system pulls 0.5A at 12V, bringing the whole of the consumption in at around 9 Watts.

Not too bad. Check out [Chris'] demo video embedded after the break.

A similar method of coupling levitation with power transfer was used to make this floating globe rotate.

10/05/12 - Earthquakes Correlated With Texan Fracking Sites
"A recent peer reviewed paper and survey by Cliff Frohlich of the University of Texas' Institute for Geophysics reveals a correlation between an increase in earthquakes and the emergence of fracking sites in the Barnett Shale, Texas.

To clarify, it is not the actual act of hydrofracking that induces earthquakes, but more likely the final process of injecting wastewater into the site, according to Oliver Boyd, a USGS seismologist.

Boyd said, 'Most, if not all, geophysicists expect induced earthquakes to be more likely from wastewater injection rather than hydrofracking.

This is because the wastewater injection tends to occur at greater depth, where earthquakes are more likely to nucleate. I also agree [with Frohlich] that induced earthquakes are likely to persist for some time (months to years) after wastewater injection has ceased.'

Frohlich added, 'Faults are everywhere. A lot of them are stuck, but if you pump water in there, it reduces friction and the fault slips a little. I can't prove that that's what happened, but it's a plausible explanation.' In the U.S. alone this correlation has been noted several times." - Full Article Source

10/05/12 - Weather balloon payload (almost) guides itself back
The biggest issue with sending expensive electronics into near space is trying to recover them.

[Lhiggs] set out to solve this issue with his Senior project for a Mechanical Engineering degree. He figured that a payload dropped from 100,000 feet should be able to glide its way back to some predefined coordinates. Here you can see one of the tests, where the payload is guiding its descent using a parafoil.

Directional control is possible with a parafoil simply by shifting weight between the two supporting ropes. In this case [Lhiggs] designed the payload to hang from a pair of servo-motor-actuated arms.

Since the payload already carries altitude and position hardware (such as a GPS, electronic compass, and altimeter) it’s just a matter of waiting for the target height before separating from the weather balloon, then using the servos to navigate to the landing zone.

Unfortunately the project was never fully completed. But you can see that he got pretty far. There is test footage embedded after the break showing the device being dropped from a plane. - Full Article Source


10/05/12 - Current limiting the oscillator dims EL wire
[Ch00f] finally made a breakthrough with his efforts dimming EL wire. He’s been at it for months and the last we heard his TRIAC idea had sputtered out.

Not to be discouraged and with an determination we have to admire he has been hard at work reverse engineering others’ and developing his own methods. He put all of this knowledge to task helping a friend of his with a sleeping disorder, and made a dream-catcher that pulses at the approximate rate of an average person’s breathing (as determined by Apple for their pulsing power button lights).

Essentially the whole thing boils down to simply using a transistor to limit the current to the oscillator.

A 555 timer is used to pass a triangle wave to the current limiting transistor at approximately the same rate as the Apple button (1/5 Hz).

[Ch00f] notes that this isn’t the sinusoidal wave that apple uses, but it’s good enough.

Finally a timeout power off is built in to the night light using a decade counter to monitor the number of triangles from the 555. This should keep the EL wire from wearing down faster, though we are hard pressed to think of a project we used EL on that has lasted anywhere near the 7 year service life of the wire. - Full Article Source


10/05/12 - The Dementia Plague
As the world's population of older people rapidly grows in the coming years, Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia will become a health-care disaster.

public reports about dementia research have bounced between optimism and gloom. In the fall of 2011, financial analysts were giddily projecting a global Alzheimer's market of $14 billion a year by 2020 and touting a new generation of drugs known as monoclonal antibodies that were in advanced human trials. A year later, the prospect for the drugs no longer looked so positive.

This past August, the giant drug makers Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson suspended advanced clinical trials of one of the monoclonals because it showed no effect in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's.

A few weeks later, another leading pharmaceutical manufacturer, Eli Lilly, announced inconclusive results for a monoclonal drug it too was testing against the protein deposits called amyloid plaques that are characteristically found in the brains of Alzheimer's patients.

The disheartening results prompted some critics to start writing epitaphs for the prevailing hypothesis about the disease—that these amyloid deposits are causing the cognitive impairment.

A list of diagnostic markers may reliably indicate the first signs of Alzheimer's disease 10 or 15 years before symptoms appear, and they are gearing up to test new drugs that can be given to healthy patients, in an attempt to block the buildup of amyloid long before dementia's onset. - Full Article Source

10/05/12 - Pick your Skin Color

KeelyNet

Report From the Future

The following items are taken from FORECAST: 1964, annual Christmas-New Year’s greetings sent out to thousands of friends, associates, and scientific fellow-workers by Hugo Gernsback, Editor and Publisher of Sexology.

Mr. Gernsback, who has been predicting the scientific future for more than 55 years, was described in a recent Life magazine article as “a man of remarkable energy who raps out forecasts of future scientific wonders with the rapidity of a disintegrator gun. . . . His list of successful scientific prophecies is almost endless.”

THE WHITE NEGRO (2084 A.D.) In 1972, chemi-genetist scientists developed a method to whiten the skin color for all who desired it.

As long ago as 1925, Sir Joseph Barcroft, C.B.E., M.A., B.Sc., M.D., F.R.S. (1872-1947) wrote that Negroid skin pigment was caused “by Melanin, closely related to two remarkable chemical substances: the hormone adrenalin and lyrosinate.” By 1976 two Rockefeller Fund scientists had isolated the Melanin-carrier genes of the Negro.

Next they discovered the enzyme Menalbin, which causes albinism, really the absence of color pigmentation. (There always were white albino Negroes.)

By altering the genes which manufacture this enzyme in the body at birth, chemi-genetists were able to control the amount of melanin produced in the body and thus change skin color. Within 2 generations the offspring of colored people in the U.S. became white, thereby removing a basic source of friction.

(Conversely they should be able to make anyone black, tan, red or whatever colors melanin can produce. I think the end color for most humans will be a dark cafe. - JWD) - Full Article Source

10/05/12 - Doctor restores "Lost Virginity" (Jul, 1964)
The unusual story of a doctor who has “re-created” more than 10,000 virgins.

Countless brides in Japan say they owe their happy marriage to Dr. Kohei Matsukubo, a 50-year-old plastic surgeon of Tokyo. More than 10,000 operations have been performed by this doctor to give women (including some Western women) new hymens. His story was told recently in the Canadian publication Chinatown News by Robert Metcalfe.

“No other doctor in the world is doing this hymen operation,” Dr. Matsukubo has said. “If I did not do it, it would be very unfortunate for many women. Their position in the world is very unequal.

“Sometimes a girl cannot marry the man she has loved. The man who ultimately offers her marriage expects her to come to him unspoiled. Many of these girls ask me to help them.

“I stand between sex and humanism. I do this for the happiness of women. I work out of compassion.”

His operation—called the “Jinko Shojo”—takes about 20 minutes and its cost is $84. He also re- stores vaginas that have been damaged in childbirth, and performs plastic cosmetic surgery on breasts and noses.

Dr. Matsukubo first turned to the hymen operations as a result of an experience as an army doctor during the war. One group of school girls had been evacuated from Tokyo to escape air raids. Eight of them bathed in a public bath that had been used by a soldier with a venereal disease and apparently became infected in this way.

Since there was no penicillin, Dr. Matsukubo had to penetrate the hymen to inject serum. Five years later, the mothers brought the daughters (now 18) back to him with the request that he replace the hymens. “Otherwise the girls couldn’t get married.”

Asking for time to experiment on animals, Dr. Matsukubo perfected his operation on monkeys. Eighteen months later he was ready to operate on the first of the girls. He does not use plastic, but does careful repair work with thread and needle.

Some of his patients are prostitutes from the Ginza district, seeking to make a fresh start. Most operations are sought by young girls. Some women travel from Southeast Asia for the operation.

Dr. Matsukubo is no fly-by-night quack. More than 100 doctors showed up when he gave a party to celebrate his 10,000th “Jinko Shojo” operation.

“Some said that 10,000 husbands would be waiting in the next world to take me to task for the deception,” said Dr. Matsukubo. “But I think I’m doing the right thing.” - Full Article Source

10/05/12 - Why Are We So Rude Online?
"An article in the WSJ discusses why internet users are more rude online than they are in person. The story discusses some of the possible reasons.

For example, a study found that browsing Facebook tends to lower people's self control. An MIT professor says people posting on the internet have lowered inhibitions because there is no formal social interaction.

Another theory is that communicating through a phone or other device feels like communicating with a 'toy,' which dehumanizes the conversation..."

Anonymity is a powerful force. Hiding behind a fake screen name makes us feel invincible, as well as invisible. Never mind that, on many websites, we're not as anonymous as we think—and we're not anonymous at all on Facebook. Even when we reveal our real identities, we still misbehave.

According to soon-to-be-published research from professors at Columbia University and the University of Pittsburgh, browsing Facebook lowers our self control. The effect is most pronounced with people whose Facebook networks were made up of close friends, the researchers say.

Most of us present an enhanced image of ourselves on Facebook. This positive image—and the encouragement we get, in the form of "likes"—boosts our self-esteem. And when we have an inflated sense of self, we tend to exhibit poor self-control.

"Think of it as a licensing effect: You feel good about yourself so you feel a sense of entitlement," says Keith Wilcox, assistant professor of marketing at Columbia Business School and co-author of the study.

"And you want to protect that enhanced view, which might be why people are lashing out so strongly at others who don't share their opinions." These types of behavior—poor self control, inflated sense of self—"are often displayed by people impaired by alcohol," he adds. - Full Article Source

Besides real time monitoring of traffic conditions, authorities will be able to integrate all kinds of services, such as traffic tickets, licensing and annual taxes, automatic toll charge, and much more. Benefits also include more security, since the system will make it harder for thieves to run far away with stolen vehicles, much less leave the country with one." - Full Article Source

'Scandinavian populations have the highest frequencies of exfoliation syndrome and glaucoma,' said author Jae Hee Kang, ScD, of Channing Division of Network Medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, Mass.

'Because Scandinavian populations also have the highest consumption of caffeinated coffee in the world, and our research group has previously found that greater caffeinated coffee intake was associated with increased risk of primary open-angle glaucoma, we conducted this study to evaluate whether the risk of exfoliation glaucoma or glaucoma suspect may be different by coffee consumption.'" - Full Article Source

10/05/12 - The Furor around MMS
KeelyNet

(I bought three bottles of it from an american website which was closed down by regulatory agencies (you know who) for I think, making claims of cures. I gave two of them to friends with health issues in their families and kept one for myself.

At the time I had no active health issues but I tried it for hoots and noted it was much like taking dilute food grade h202 (hydrogen peroxide). But its palpable in orange juice.

It had no obvious effects other than I needed to eat some yogurt to rebuild intestinal flora because I had a bit of diarrhea from the purging effect. I wrote about it on the Keelynet blog way back in 2008.

I had no negative side effects but there are many websites which called MMS a fraud. Read up on it and decide for yourself if its worth trying. I spent about $100 for three packets. The shipment was lost in Mexican mail so they kindly sent me another three packets that came through with no problems! - JWD)

MMS is a popular miracle mineral solution known to improve multiple conditions ranging from the flu to cancer and HIV. Available from Future Health Today for about $25.

Tine Van Der Maas wrote; "First I want to thank Jim Humble, who took it from no-where to where it is slowly becoming “mainstream” today, and who has done an amazing amount of research on MMS. He has devoted many of his years showing people all over the world, but especially in Africa, how and why MMS works.

In short, he experimented for years and eventually found that if you mixed the drops with lemon juice, it became activated to kill malaria. He then traveled all over Africa to show doctors and government officials how fast MMS worked to kill the Malaria parasites in an extremely affordable way.

I can testify that it works extremely well against Malaria. When I received my first bottle of MMS a few years ago, (I obviously first read Jim Humble’s book), I went to a malaria area in South Africa and asked 2 people at a hospital who had been diagnosed with malaria if they were prepared to try the MMS.

They had all the symptoms like high fever, shaking and drowsiness. Using Jim Humble’s Protocol, within about five and a half hours, the symptoms were gone, and when a blood test was done the next morning (about 14 hours later), the blood was parasite free.

Did the doctors ask me what I had used? NO! Did they want to know? NO! Are people still suffering and dying from Malaria unnecessary while there is an extremely affordable remedy available? Yes!

I have since tried it for many different diseases including AIDS, all types of cancers, all types of infections, and when the “swine” flu was here, it also worked beautifully. When we will do our Clinical Trials, we will invite Jim Humble to visit us, so he can enjoy the fruit of his work.”

10/02/12 - Modern wheat is a "perfect, chronic poison"
Dr. William Davis said that the wheat we eat these days isn't the wheat your grandma had: "It's an 18-inch tall plant created by genetic research in the '60s and '70s," he said on "CBS This Morning." "This thing has many new features nobody told you about, such as there's a new protein in this thing called gliadin. It's not gluten. I'm not addressing people with gluten sensitivities and celiac disease.

I'm talking about everybody else because everybody else is susceptible to the gliadin protein that is an opiate. This thing binds into the opiate receptors in your brain and in most people stimulates appetite, such that we consume 440 more calories per day, 365 days per year."

Asked if the farming industry could change back to the grain it formerly produced, Davis said it could, but it would not be economically feasible because it yields less per acre. However, Davis said a movement has begun with people turning away from wheat - and dropping substantial weight.

"If three people lost eight pounds, big deal," he said. "But we're seeing hundreds of thousands of people losing 30, 80, 150 pounds. Diabetics become no longer diabetic; people with arthritis having dramatic relief. People losing leg swelling, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, and on and on every day."

To avoid these wheat-oriented products, Davis suggests eating "real food," such as avocados, olives, olive oil, meats, and vegetables. "(It's) the stuff that is least likely to have been changed by agribusiness," he said. "Certainly not grains. When I say grains, of course, over 90 percent of all grains we eat will be wheat, it's not barley... or flax. It's going to be wheat. - Full Article Source

KeelyNet "Real-world military conventions have had obvious effects on many sci-fi books, movies, and TV shows.

Hotel and library computers are easy to compromise. In short, they’re generally not safe from hackers wanting to steal your information or your identity.

We used a hotel’s “business center” computer a while back at L’Auberge in Del Mar, Cal., a three-star hotel, no less, and within a couple of days started getting scurrilous ads in our email. At the “Conrad” inIndianapolis, one of the Hilton upscale hotels, we noticed the computers in the business center had not been upgraded in more than four years, and did not seem at all well protected. Joy installed the latest Internet Explorer. She shouldn’t have been able to do that.

Almost no computer that can be accessed by the public is safe from someone installing the kind of software that logs your keystrokes – every letter and number you punch in. So we got pitched recently about a $30 program that encrypts every keystroke you enter, everything you type.

It’s called “GuardedID,” and sells for $30. We were skeptical, because that is our natural state. So we asked the CEO of Malwarebytes.org, a leader in anti-malware products, if this sort of thing would work. He said that encrypting text at the keyboard level can definitely deter keyloggers.

OK, so whether you add GuardedID to your anti-virus and anti-spyware arsenal depends on how paranoid you are. We decided to install it. We may not need it, but remember: even paranoids have enemies.

One thing that put us off was you have to enter your credit card information on the company’s web site to get access to a free 30-day trial. If you don’t cancel within 30 days, bingo!: you bought it.

10/02/12 - Turning air into liquid to store energy
According to The Institution of Mechanical Engineers, "wrong-time" electricity generated by wind farms at night can be used to chill air to a cryogenic state at a distant location. Later this liquid air can be warmed to drive a turbine, when demand increases.

It said that liquid air could compete with batteries and hydrogen to store excess energy generated from renewables, the BBC reported.

Engineers say the process to produce "right-time" electricity can achieve an efficiency of up to 70 percent. The technology was originally developed by Peter Dearman, a garage inventor in Hertfordshire, to power vehicles.

A new firm, Highview Power Storage, was created to transfer Dearman's technology to a system that can store energy to be used on the power grid.

The process, part-funded by the government, has now been trialled for two years at the back of a power station in Slough, Buckinghamshire.

"I get half a dozen people a week trying to persuade me they have a brilliant invention," head of energy Tim Fox told BBC News.

IMechE said the simplicity and elegance of the Highview process is appealing, especially as it addresses not just the problem of storage but also the separate problem of waste industrial heat.

The process follows a number of stages: First the "Wrong-time electricity" is used to take in air, remove the CO2 and water vapour (these would freeze otherwise).

In doing so the remaining air, mostly nitrogen, is chilled to -190C (-310F) and turns to liquid (changing the state of the air from gas to liquid is what stores the energy).

Then the liquid air is held in a giant vacuum flask until it is needed. When demand for power rises, the liquid is warmed to ambient temperature. As it vaporizes, it drives a turbine to produce electricity - no combustion is involved.

IMechE says this process is only 25 percent efficient but it is massively improved by co-siting the cryo-generator next to an industrial plant or power station producing low-grade heat that is currently vented and being realised into the atmosphere.

Highview believes that, produced at scale, their kits could be up to 70 percent efficient, - Full Article Source

10/02/12 - New York Plans World's Largest Ferris Wheel
"It is an old trend to build "The World's largest..." something. One of the latest somethings is a 630-foot tall Ferris wheel planned for Staten Island.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said 'The New York Wheel will be an attraction unlike any other in New York City even unlike any other on the planet.'

Designed to carry 1,440 passengers at a time, it's expected to draw 4.5 million people a year to a setting that also would include a 100-shop outlet mall and a 200-room hotel." - Full Article Source

10/02/12 - Inventor forges a 'shining star'
KeelyNet Robin Elkins conceived a way to convert analog audio to digital form while looking for a better way to record rock music as a student at Hollywood High in South Florida.

That precocious achievement was a laurel he could have rested on, but Elkins can’t stop being a scientist.

The lasers, which he sells to defense contractors, and the various forms of the Elklight are his core products. He’s patented other inventions, such as a security system for large machinery, a battery-powered refrigerator, battery chargers and portable power packs.

Two pocket-size boxes were wired to a meter but the display didn’t change much. The laser looked like a digital clock that couldn’t keep up with time. No flashing lights, no buildings blown into smoke and ash.

About such technical stuff, action comics definitely are not made.

But as those little boxes do what lasers do, Elkins the scientist can’t contain his enthusiasm about the project. He solders tiny wires and a miniscule plastic piece to a circuit board, the sort of thing he must have done a thousand times, but he does it with a curious joy.

“Oh, this is so cool! I think we’ve got something going here,” he said, just before making the connection that creates an incredibly bright beam of light from the tiny source, his Elklight creation. “Sixty-five watts of Elklights would be like 1,500 watts from these overhead lights” casting down in the high-ceiling warehouse. “This is the wave of the future,” he said. - Full Article Source

10/02/12 - Tinfoil hats actually amplify mind-control beams
KeelyNet A group of MIT students decided to test the performance of different tinfoil beanies to see how various designs (the "classical," "fez" and "centurion") interacted with commonly used industrial radio applications.

They found that all three designs actually amplified these mind control rays radio waves, suggesting that the tinfoil hat meme might be a false-flag operation engineered to trick the wily and suspicious into making it easier to beam messages into their skulls.

Among a fringe community of paranoids, aluminum helmets serve as the protective measure of choice against invasive radio signals. We investigate the efficacy of three aluminum helmet designs on a sample group of four individuals.

Using a $250,000 network analyser, we find that although on average all helmets attenuate invasive radio frequencies in either directions (either emanating from an outside source, or emanating from the cranium of the subject), certain frequencies are in fact greatly amplified.

These amplified frequencies coincide with radio bands reserved for government use according to the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). Statistical evidence suggests the use of helmets may in fact enhance the government's invasive abilities.

We speculate that the government may in fact have started the helmet craze for this reason.

... We evaluated the performance of three different helmet designs, commonly referred to as the Classical, the Fez, and the Centurion. These designs are portrayed in Figure 1. The helmets were made of Reynolds aluminium foil. As per best practices, all three designs were constructed with the double layering technique described elsewhere [2].

A radio-frequency test signal sweeping the ranges from 10 Khz to 3 Ghz was generated using an omnidirectional antenna attached to the Agilent 8714ET's signal generator. - Full Article Source

10/02/12 - Thai Navy's "Gangnam Style" remake lands officers in hot water
The Bangkok Post reports that a senior officer in Thailand's navy was forced to apologize over a silly YouTube video remake of PSY's "Gangnam Style."

Vice Admiral Tharathorn Kajitsuwan, the Third Naval Area commander, said the video was made for entertainment purposes and to be showcased at the unit's annual retirement party. Some senior officers were said to have been offended by the "improper" spectacle of officers in dress whites prancing about, but Commander Surasak Rounroengrom said no harm was done to the Navy's image.

"I told my subordinates that the video should be entertaining to watch and help promote unity in the unit," Vice Adm Tharathorn said on Monday.

The video took three days to film and edit, and was shown at the base’s annual party last week. It shows "white-uniformed sailors in sunglasses galloping through their offices and officers in scuba gear shimmying up the beach." (I love all the versions of this fad, but no one beats PSY.

10/02/12 - To Encourage Biking, Lose the Helmets
"Elisabeth Rosenthal writes that in the United States the notion that bike helmets promote health and safety by preventing head injuries is taken as pretty near God's truth but many European health experts have taken a very different view. 'Yes, there are studies that show that if you fall off a bicycle at a certain speed and hit your head, a helmet can reduce your risk of serious head injury,' writes Rosenthal.

'But such falls off bikes are rare — exceedingly so in mature urban cycling systems.' On the other hand, many researchers say, if you force people to wear helmets, you discourage them from riding bicycles causing more health problems like obesity, heart disease, and diabetes.

Bicycling advocates say that the problem with pushing helmets isn't practicality but that helmets make a basically safe activity seem really dangerous, which makes it harder to develop a safe bicycling network like the one in New York City, where a bike-sharing program is to open next year.

The safest biking cities are places like Amsterdam and Copenhagen, where middle-aged commuters are mainstay riders and the fraction of adults in helmets is minuscule.

'Pushing helmets really kills cycling and bike-sharing in particular because it promotes a sense of danger that just isn't justified — in fact, cycling has many health benefits,' says Piet de Jong. 'Statistically, if we wear helmets for cycling, maybe we should wear helmets when we climb ladders or get into a bath, because there are lots more injuries during those activities.'" - Full Article Source

10/02/12 - New Tracking Frontier: Your License Plates
Until recently it was far too expensive for police to track the locations of innocent people...

But as surveillance technologies decline in cost and grow in sophistication, police are rapidly adopting them. Private companies are joining, too.

At least two start-up companies, both founded by "repo men"—specialists in repossessing cars or property from deadbeats—are currently deploying camera-equipped cars nationwide to photograph people's license plates, hoping to profit from the data they collect.

The rise of license-plate tracking is a case study in how storing and studying people's everyday activities, even the seemingly mundane, has become the default rather than the exception.

Cellphone-location data, online searches, credit-card purchases, social-network comments and more are gathered, mixed-and-matched, and stored in vast databases.

Data about a typical American is collected in more than 20 different ways during everyday activities, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis. Fifteen years ago, more than half of these types of surveillance tools were unavailable or not in widespread use, says Col. Lisa Shay, a professor of electrical engineering at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point who studies tracking.

"What would the 1950s Soviet Union have done with the technology we have now?" says Col. Shay. "We don't have a police state in this country (yet), but we have the technology."

Law-enforcement agents say they are using this information only to catch bad guys. - Full Article Source

10/02/12 - Private city in Honduras will have minimal taxes, government
KeelyNet Small government and free-market capitalism are about to get put to the test in Honduras, where the government has agreed to let an investment group build an experimental city with no taxes on income, capital gains or sales.

Proponents say the tiny, as-yet unnamed town will become a Central American beacon of job creation and investment, by combining secure property rights with minimal government interference.

Michael Strong, CEO of the MKG Group, which will build the city and set its laws...

Strong said that the agreement with the Honduran government states that the only tax will be on property.

“Our goal is to be the most economically free entity on Earth,” Strong said.

“[It] will bring a lot of investment into the country [and be] a center for many employment opportunities for our people,” Honduran President Porfirio Lobo Sosa has said.

The laws in the city will be separate from those in the rest of Honduras. Strong said that the default law that will be enforced in the city will actually be based on Texas state law, which has relatively few regulations.

“It will be Texas law with more freedom of contract. Texas scores well on state economic freedom rankings,” he explained.

“Texas law is also very familiar to American business people, and it is very familiar to Hondurans, because a lot of Hondurans have gone there or have family there.”

Investors who think the city will do well will also be able to buy land there.

“There will be a free market in land,” Strong said.

The rules for immigrating to the city have yet to be finalized, but are expected to be loose.

“It will be designed to be very welcoming to those with a minimum threshold of skills or capital,” Strong said. However, businesses in the city will be required to employ a minimum proportion of native Hondurans – a requirement imposed at the outset by the Honduran government to ensure that the city’s benefits largely go to Hondurans.

To insure the city against political change, the Honduran Legislature has agreed that a two-thirds majority will be required to interfere with the city. - Full Article Source

10/02/12 - L Ron Hubbard was king conman...Scientology is just a pyramid scam
KeelyNet The Sun tracked down great grandson Jamie Dewolf, the religious leader’s descendant to his home in Oakland, California.

Speaking publicly for the first time, Jamie said: “My great grandfather, L Ron Hubbard, was the king of the conmen, who created a giant pyramid scam.”

And he added: “He had the gift of the gab and was charismatic enough to pull it off. Basically, he was a grifter and a hustler who engineered a massive scam.”

Jamie says most of Hubbard’s family have now quit the church and live in hiding, terrified his followers might find them and reap revenge for abandoning his dream.

But Jamie, 35, adds that he is determined to speak out and tell the truth about his famous ancestor.

The Church of Scientology is one of the most talked about cults — and continues to attract thousands of followers around the world.

But few people know how it started. L Ron Hubbard was born in the American Midwest and served in the US Navy during the Second World War.

“He later moved to California and tried his hand as a science fiction writer. His meagre earnings meant life was hard.

By 1948 he was so exasperated, he was quoted as saying: “Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous.

“If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion.”

Hubbard’s fortunes changed when his book Dianetics: The Modern Science Of Mental Health became a worldwide best-seller in 1950. What started as a self-help guide quickly turned into a religion when Hubbard amassed scores of followers.

He later claimed he had discovered humans are immortal aliens trapped on earth and his teachings could unlock the universe’s secrets.

One of the first to quit the cult was his eldest son Ron Jr — Jamie’s late grandfather. Jamie said: “Ron Jr told me 99 per cent of anything his father ever wrote or said about himself was fiction. L Ron turned himself into a folk hero, a fictional character. Everything he said was made up or exaggerated.”

Jamie is convinced Hubbard, rather than believing himself to be a true prophet, started Scientology as a cynical exercise to amass power for himself. He said: “At first he called it science — but it is too easy to question science. So he called it a religion and hid behind that.

“You cannot question people’s religious beliefs, so he managed to say and do what he wanted.

“I don’t think he did it all for the money — he did it to feed his ego.” - Full Article Source

10/02/12 - People get gout because of increase in obesity
Gout - a type of arthritis - is incredibly painful thanks to needle-shaped crystals, which form in and around joints - particularly the big toe - causing inflammation.

The painful illness is known as the disease of kings as it afflicted a number of monarchs including Henry VIII.

Hospital admissions have almost doubled in a decade to more than 4,400 a year.

Experts blame eating and drinking to excess for the illness caused by a build-up in the blood of uric acid, a waste product formed by the breakdown of food, beer and wine.

If someone produces too much uric acid tiny crystals will start to form in the joints and cause pain and inflammation.

Alcohol can raise the level of uric acid in the blood by increasing its production in the liver, and by reducing how much is passed out in urine, with beer a particular issue.

Tam Fry, of the National Obesity Forum, said: 'This rise comes as no surprise - and its not just the elderly who are suffering.

'People have just about got the message that obesity may lead to Type 2 Diabetes and hypertension but they appear to be oblivious to the plethora of other conditions triggered by being unhealthily fat.

'Because of the age range, health professionals should take every opportunity warn their patients just how painful it is. - Full Article Source

10/02/12 - Canned Air to open a Bike Lock
Break A Lock Canned Air - You know the warning on cans of compressed air, the one that cautions you from shaking the can during use, or inverting the can before squeezing the trigger?

Turns out the white liquid it expels when you do that isn't just potentially hazardous to your health -- it could also encourage thievery.

That's because the liquid is difluoroethane, a refrigerant that evaporates at -13°F. Cold enough, according to Popular Science, to chill the steel in bike locks and make them extremely brittle.

Then a thief could potentially hit the lock with a well-placed hammer a few times and shatter the critical bits to pieces.

As the video below illustrates, this process is more difficult than it sounds, and any bike thief pounding away on a frozen lock is sure to draw some unwanted attention. Still, it may be worth doubling up on lock technology, or at least bringing your bike inside if it's valuable enough. - Full Article Source


10/02/12 - TSA 'All-Stop' Drill
At Phoenix, Arizona's airport, WITHIN the "secured" area of the gates, I suddenly found myself in a bunch of travelers who were being sharply told to "STAY RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE! DON'T MOVE!". A TSA employee was pointing his blue-gloved hand at anyone who moved a muscle (including airport workers) and barking these orders. Beyond him were two other agents doing the same thing to everyone in a 90-degree radius.

The tension was rather palpable, as you might imagine. No explanation was given, no other words were spoken. No one moved a muscle. Parents grabbed their children. Anyone who fidgeted or made a step forward got yelled at.

Two minutes or so later, Mr. Gloved Hand brusquely waved everyone about their business (as seen in the tape). I only managed to capture the final 30 seconds or so of the incident.

After this, I walked into the terminal intersection they had cut off, expecting to see someone in handcuffs, face down on the carpet with a bunch of cops on him. Or at least ONE single police officer or security guard... but there were none. There was NO incident happening, whatsoever. And everyone went onwards to their gates...

I'm still picking my jaw up off the floor. Felt I should share.

One of the TSA's regional spokesmen, Nico Melendez, tells Huffington Post that these freeze drills, which the agency calls "all-stop drills," have been occurring for roughly 10 years. Though this was a drill, the exercise has "been used in a real situation," Melendez said.

"We use them to control the situation, stop screening and identify the breach," Melendez continued. While there is no mention of the drills on the agency's website about "all-stop," Melendez said that he would be soon publish a blog post about the topic at blog.tsa.gov. - Full Article Source

'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
