03/31/15 - Measurement of a photon affects its location
Previous experiments have shown entanglement with two particles. But this is the first to show the entanglement of a photon with itself. The study reveals how when a light photon is observed it changes state. Einstein didn't believe this could happen as it violates theory of relativity.

Professor Howard Wiseman at Griffiths University, who worked with the University of Tokyo, made measurements to show what Einstein did not believe to be real - namely the non-local collapse of a particle's 'wave function'. According to quantum mechanics, a single particle can be described by a wave function that spreads over large distances, but is never detected in two or more places.

This phenomenon is explained in quantum theory by what Einstein disparaged in 1927 as 'spooky action at a distance.' This is the instantaneous collapse of the wave function to wherever the particle is detected.

It happens because physicists believe the universe behaves like a little probability wave. Particles are in many places at once, each with some probability. This means if an electron was fired through two slits at a screen, it would go through both of them. But if you set up a pair of cameras to monitor the slit, the wave function collapses. As a result it only goes through on of the slits, rather than both.

By splitting a single photon between two laboratories, scientists have used homodyne detectors - which measure wave-like properties - to show the collapse of the wave function is a real effect. According to Live Science, the paradox was resolved years later, when experiments showed that even though the interaction between two quantum particles happens faster than light, it is impossible use it to send information.

The report adds that while other experiments have shown entanglement with two particles, the new study entangles a photon with itself. This phenomenon is the strongest yet proof of the entanglement of a single particle, an unusual form of quantum entanglement that is being increasingly explored for quantum communication and computation.

"...rather than simply detecting the presence or absence of the particle, we used homodyne measurements enabling one party to make different measurements and the other, using quantum tomography, to test the effect of those choices.' 'Through these different measurements, you see the wave function collapse in different ways, thus proving its existence and showing that Einstein was wrong.' - Measurement of a photon affects its location

03/31/15 - California Water Wars: Another Form of Asset Stripping?
KeelyNet Today the water wars continue on a larger scale with new players. It’s no longer just the farmers against the ranchers or the urbanites. It’s the people against the new “water barons” – Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Monsanto, the Bush family, and their ilk – who are buying up water all over the world at an unprecedented pace.

Jay Famiglietti, a scientist with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge, California, wrote in the Los Angeles Times on March 12th:

Right now the state has only about one year of water supply left in its reservoirs, and our strategic backup supply, groundwater, is rapidly disappearing. California has no contingency plan for a persistent drought like this one (let alone a 20-plus-year mega-drought), except, apparently, staying in emergency mode and praying for rain.

Maps indicate that the areas of California hardest hit by the mega-drought are those that grow a large percentage of America’s food. California supplies 50% of the nation’s food and more organic food than any other state. Western Growers estimates that last year 500,000 acres of farmland were left unplanted, an amount that could increase by 40% this year. The trade group pegs farm job losses at 17,000 last year and more in 2015.

Farmers with contracts from the Central Valley Project, a large federal irrigation system, will receive no water for the second consecutive year, according to preliminary forecasts. Cities and industries will get 25 percent of their full contract allocation, to ensure sufficient water for human health and safety. Besides shortages, there is the problem of toxic waste dumped into water supplies by oil company fracking. Economists estimate the cost of the drought in 2014 at $2.2 billion.

Skeptical observers note that water is being called the next commodity boom. Christina Sarich, writing on NationOfChange.org, asserts:

Numerous companies are poised to take advantage of the water crisis. Instead of protecting existing water supplies, implementing stricter regulations, and coming up with novel ways to capture rainwater, or desalinizing seawater, the corporate agenda is ready, like a snake coiled, to make trillions off your thirst.

These coiled snakes include Monsanto and other biotech companies, which are developing drought-resistant and aluminum-resistant seeds set to take over when the organic farmers throw in the towel. Organic dairy farmers and ranchers have been the hardest hit by the drought, since the certified organic pasture on which their cows must be fed is dwindling fast. - California Water Wars: Another Form of Asset Stripping?

03/31/15 - Trailer Water harvesting machine
KeelyNet Amazing. A gizmo which sucks the air in, then sucks the water out of the air, and then spews out clean fresh water. 500 Gallons of it a day. Every off-grid home should have one. Only problem is it’ll set you back a cool $500,000 . FEMA have already bought two, and the US Army is said to be on the verge of buying many, because getting our boys pure water is one of the key logistics requirements of any operational planning.

The box o’ tricks is from Aqua Sciences Inc, and the company says the high cost is justified because in the end it “only costs you $0.25 per gallon. For those of us without an entire battalion at our command, however the price is still a little steep. The makers are working on a consumer model, but it won’t be out any time soon.

Its precise workings aren’t public, but they use a chemical process similar to the one that causes salt to absorb moisture from the air (and clump up your saltshaker) (uses lithium chloride which is a dessicant).

“People have been trying to figure out how to do this for years, and we just came out of left field in response to Darpa,” said Abe Sher, chief executive officer of Aqua Sciences. “The atmosphere is a river full of water, even in the desert. It won’t work absolutely everywhere, but it works virtually everywhere.”

“We figured out how to tap it in a very unique and proprietary way,” Sher said. “We figured out how to mimic nature, using natural salt to extract water and act as a natural decontamination.

“Think of the Dead Sea, where nothing grows around it because the salt dehydrates everything. It’s kind of like that.” The 20-foot machine can churn out 600 gallons of water a day without using or producing toxic materials and byproducts.

“I was pretty blown away by the things it’s able to do,” Rowe said. “The fact that this technology is not tied to humidity like others are makes it an attractive alternative for military bases in the Mideast where humidity is not really an option. “It seems like it’s a cheaper alternative to trucking in bottled water, which has a shelf life,” said Rowe, who described himself as a fiscal hawk.

Once deployed, the machines could reduce the cost of logistical support for supplying water to the troops in Iraq by billions of dollars, said Stuart Roy, spokesman of the DCI Group, Aqua Sciences’ public affairs firm. The cost to transport water by C-17 cargo planes, then truck it to the troops, runs $30 a gallon. The cost, including the machines from Aqua Sciences, will be reduced to 30 cents a gallon, Roy said.

Several systems on the market can create water through condensation, but the process requires a high level of humidity. Aqua Sciences’ machines only require 14 percent humidity, Roy said. “That’s why this technology is superior and why they are getting the contracts.”

Here’s the spec: Fully-contained mobile freshwater generation system for large-scale production, including power generator - Self-powered by diesel generator (7-day supply), or by grid electricity - Easy to install, use and maintain - Container models can produce up to 1,200 gallons of water per day for 7 days without outside electrical source or refueling.

The 40 foot container with the reverse osmosis module can provide emergency water for up to 3,000 people per day. 20 FOOT EMERGENCY WATER STATION - Rated Water Production: Up to 500 gallons/day (depending on conditions) - Dimensions: Modified 20? container: 20? long x 7.7? wide x 7.8? high - Water Containers: Individual water containers for emergency distribution included.

40 FOOT EMERGENCY WATER STATION - Rated Water Production: Up to 1,200 gallons/day (depending on conditions) - Integrated R.O. Module: Included reverse osmosis module can provide up to an additional 8,000 gallons/day from an existing source dependent upon conditions. - Dimensions: Modified 40? container: 40? long x 7.7? wide x 7.8? high - Water Containers: Individual water containers for emergency distribution included - Modular design enhances reliability - Quick standard connection for external storage tank - Can be powered by electricity or generator - Portable or can be affixed to structure - Easy to install, use, maintain and move - Deliverable by truck to isolated areas. Notes: uses lithium chloride to suck water from the air. Lithium Chloride is probably the most common absorbent type desiccant. (Click link for video) - Trailer Water harvesting machine

03/31/15 - Night Vision drops
KeelyNet A group of scientists in California have successfully created eye drops that temporarily enable night vision. They use mixture of insulin and a chemical known as Chlorin e6 (Ce6) to enable the user to view objects clearly in darkness up to 50 meters away.

Ce6 is found in some deep-sea fish and often used to treat night blindness. The solution starts to work within an hour of being applied to the user's eyes, and lasts for several hours afterward.

The test subject's eyesight returned to normal the next day. The organization Science for the Masses has released a paper detailing the experiment on their website.

How it happened: With what's basically a really fine turkey baster, Tibbetts slowly dripped 50 microliters of Ce6, an extremely low dose, into Licina's speculum-stretched eyes, aiming for the conjunctival sac, which carried the chemical to the retina.

"To me, it was a quick, greenish-black blur across my vision, and then it dissolved into my eyes," Licina told Mic. And then they waited. From the patent they read, the effects start kicking in within an hour. Licina and Tibbetts had done their research, going so far as to post a paper called "A Review on Night Enhancement Eyedrops Using Chlorin e6." But they are, after all, a bunch of guys working out of a garage. So they went out to a dark field and tested Licina's new superpowers.

Did it work? Yes. It started with shapes, hung about 10 meters away. "I'm talking like the size of my hand," Licina says. Before long, they were able to do longer distances, recognizing symbols and identifying moving subjects against different backgrounds.

"The other test, we had people go stand in the woods," he says. "At 50 meters, we could figure out where they were, even if they were standing up against a tree." Each time, Licina had a 100% success rate. The control group, without being dosed with Ce6, only got them right a third of the time. - Night Vision drops

03/31/15 - Chinese Scientists Plan Solar Power Station In Space
KeelyNet "The battle to dispel smog, cut greenhouse gases and solve the energy crisis is moving to space. If news reports are to be believed, Chinese scientists are mulling the construction of a solar power station in a geosynchronous orbit 36,000 kilometres above ground. The electricity generated would be converted to microwaves or lasers and transmitted to a collector on Earth. If realized, it will surpass the scale of the Apollo project and the International Space Station and be the largest-ever space project."

After devoting more than half a century to space technology research, Wang, 93, is an advocate for the station: "An economically viable space power station would be really huge, with the total area of the solar panels reaching 5 to 6 square kilometers." That's equivalent to 12 of Beijing's Tian'anmen Square, the largest public square in the world, or nearly two New York Central Parks.

"Maybe people on Earth could see it in the sky at night, like a star," says Wang. Researchers in many countries have drawn dozens of designs, with square, round and bowl-shaped stations. But why build a power station in space? Wang says the electricity generated from the ground-based solar plants fluctuates with night and day and the weather, while a space-based generator can collect energy 99 percent of the time.

Space-based solar panels can generate ten times as much electricity as ground-based panels per unit area, says Duan Baoyan, a member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE). "If we have space solar power technology, hopefull we could solve the energy crisis on Earth," Duan says. The world has recognized the need to replace fossil fuels with clean energies. However, the ground-based solar, wind, water and other renewable energy sources are too limited in volume and unstable.

"The world will panic when the fossil fuels can no longer sustain human development. We must acquire space solar power technology before then," Wang says. "Whoever obtains the technology first could occupy the future energy market. So it's of great strategic significance," Wang says. "Construction of a space solar power station will be a milestone for human utilization of space resources. And it will promote technological progress in the fields of energy, electricity, materials and aerospace," says Wang. - Chinese Scientists Plan Solar Power Station In Space

03/31/15 - "Religious Freedom" Laws As Discriminatory
It will come as no surprise that Apple's CEO Tim Cook doesn't agree with so-called religious freedom laws. Cook says, "[they] rationalize injustice by pretending to defend something many of us hold dear," and has penned an op-ed piece for The Washington Post which reads in part: "A wave of legislation, introduced in more than two dozen states, would allow people to discriminate against their neighbors.

Some, such as the bill enacted in Indiana last week that drew a national outcry and one passed in Arkansas, say individuals can cite their personal religious beliefs to refuse service to a customer or resist a state nondiscrimination law.

Others are more transparent in their effort to discriminate. Legislation being considered in Texas would strip the salaries and pensions of clerks who issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples — even if the Supreme Court strikes down Texas' marriage ban later this year.

In total, there are nearly 100 bills designed to enshrine discrimination in state law. These bills rationalize injustice by pretending to defend something many of us hold dear. They go against the very principles our nation was founded on, and they have the potential to undo decades of progress toward greater equality." - "Religious Freedom" Laws As Discriminatory

03/31/15 - Project Blue Beam
A man in southern California claims he’s being observed by a partially transparent humanoid and an invisible being with glowing eyes and has military helicopters flying over his house. Many photographs he’s taken appear to have a blue beam down the middle and he suspects he’s part of a rumored covert NASA project called Project Blue Beam. Is he?

Project Blue Beam is an alleged secret and extremely complex plan by NASA and the United Nations to use technology to simulate a Second Coming of Christ that would start a New World Order along with a new religion with the Antichrist at its helm. This theory was presented by Serge Monast in his 1994 book, “Project Blue Beam.”

The four-step project consisted of (this is a very brief summary) creating chaos by causing earthquakes, using holograms to simulate a new god, beaming low-frequency waves to make humans think they are getting telepathic messages and controlling all electronic devices to simulate false attacks and bring earth to the brink of destruction so that humans are ready to accept this new world order.

Now THAT’S a conspiracy theory. Monast predicted the implementation of Project Blue Beam a number of times but it obviously hasn’t occurred yet, although we now have large realistic holograms and earthquakes created by fracking, not to mention plenty of talk about a New World Order. His followers believe his death by heart attack in 1996 was an assassination to stop his revelation of the plan. Skeptics point out that Project Blue Beam resembles the 1991 Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “Devil’s Due” and the plot of an unreleased 1975 Star Trek movie by Gene Roddenberry called “The God Thing.”

Project Blue Beam still has plenty of believers. The poor guy in California wonders if he’s “NASA’s guinea pig” for it. Is he? Would it help if he watched Devil’s Due? (Click link for video) - Project Blue Beam

03/31/15 - What a radiating world of gadgets!
According to Dr Vikas Inder Nath Nehru, specialist ENT and head and neck surgeon, there are several long term risks associated with radiation emanating from gadgets. Electromagnetic Field (EMF) radiation is increasingly affecting our daily lives, said Dr Nehru. Better late than never (Dos and Don’ts)

Keep your phone away from yourself while sleeping. If you want to put an alarm on it then put it on airplane mode first.

Don’t keep your phone in your pocket all the time. Keep it at a distance of at least 15mm from your body.

Keep calls short and if at all you have a long call to make, then use a wired headset and not a Bluetooth set.

Try using the landline more than a cellphone.

Don’t give your phones to your kids to play as their skulls are thin and radiowaves travel through your child’s brain.

When signals are low on your phone, avoid using it as the phone is radiating at a maximum level to get connectivity.

When using the microwave, close its door and step away. And when you turn it off, pause a few seconds and then open its door.

Focusing his study on cellphones, iPads, iPods, microwave ovens, wireless routers, laptops, desktops, cordless phones, tablets etc, Dr Nehru said EMF radiations come from multiple gadgets from multiple directions and are overlapping. Some of the short-term effects of such radiations are headache, sleeplessness, confusion and the inability to concentrate. Long-term exposure can lead to brain and salivary gland tumours, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and Parkinson’s disease. He said there is no “safe dose” of usage. - What a radiating world of gadgets!

03/27/15 - Latest on Rossi Cold Fusion with more details
KeelyNet So far, it seems that every single aspect of the nickel-lithium aluminum hydride reaction is positive. The elements used in the Rossi Effect are cheap. Nine tenths of a gram of nickel and a tenth of a gram of lithium aluminum hydride costs almost nothing. In reality, the materials used to build the test setup (reactor core, heating elements, power supply, measurement devices) will cost ten thousand times more than the fuel, even though everything needed for a replication can probably be obtained for several hundred dollars.

When this technology hits the mainstream, there will be virtually no fuel cost. The power output from the gram of fuel used in a basic test setup is enormous. If Parkhomov’s data can be confirmed, a gram of fuel can produce at least a thousand watts of constant excess heat. The Lugano report indicates that this heat can continue to be produced for at least a month, if not much longer. The low temperature reactors used in the one megawatt plant (which might use more than one gram of fuel each) have been apparently been running for months, and may run a year without re-fueling.

In addition producing large amounts of excess power (it seems to be fairly easy to produce a COP of 2 to 3) the Rossi Effect enables systems to self-sustain. Test data from various E-Cat devices demonstrate this, and one of Parkhomov’s devices maintained a constant temperature for about eight minutes after the resistor blew. Andrea Rossi says reactors in his low temperature plant can self-sustain for very long periods of time, and we have been told individual “hot cats” can self-sustain for at least two hours.

Once the world recognizes this technology is as real as solar panels, there will be thousands of scientists and engineers working on these systems. I think that in a short period of time, devices will be made that are initially activated with external heat and then self-sustain for days at a time. This means practically infinite COP.

Right now, there is a dangerous chemical researchers have to use to build these systems – lithium aluminum hydride. This substance is not radioactive, but one breath of it can kill. Also, if exposed to water or humidity, it can cause fires or explosions. Parkhomov seems to have safely used this chemical many times in his experiments without taking almost any safety precautions, but one mistake or accident could result in a tragedy.

Work by various researchers show that several interesting things happen when nickel and lithium aluminum hydride are heated. At fairly low temperatures, hydrogen is released from the LaAlH4. This results in an increase in pressure. However, at a higher temperature, the lithium and aluminum start to melt and coat the individual nickel particles. The lithium in this LiAl alloy still contains hydrogen atoms. At a higher temperature, more hydrogen is released. Interestingly, at some point the hydrogen seems to start to be absorbed by the nickel and other gases (such as oxygen and nitrogen) are gettered (absorbed) by the aluminum which seems to cause a drop in pressure.

When the reactor cools, the fuel seems to consist of nickel particles with hydrogen locked inside, coated with lithium-aluminum alloy. No more LiAlH4 seems to exist, so the threat of toxicity or volatility from that chemical may be gone.

Currently, there are several replication projects – most in the early stages – going on around the world. Most of them will use a combination of nickel powder, lithium aluminum hydride, and perhaps iron to try and replicate. There is talk about the possibility of kits being offered for qualified, trained scientists to use in order to replicate.

It would be much safer if such kits contained only processed fuel in the form of lithium aluminum alloy covered nickel particles. This fuel would be much less dangerous – although it should still be handled with great care – and could potentially be exposed to atmosphere or humidity without the risk of explosion or fire. Fuel preparation could be done in one or more central locations, and distributed to experimenters. - Latest on Rossi Cold Fusion with more details

03/27/15 - Ice cube at Feng Fu pressure point to Rejuvenate
KeelyNet This one secret will make you look younger and leave you feeling full of life and energy. All you need is an ice cube and a few moments of your time! There is a point at the base of the neck known as the Feng Fu.

The Feng Fu pressure point is found at the base of the skull just below the bottom ridge of the skull cap at the top of the neck.

If you regularly put ice on it, the body begins to rejuvenate and you will find yourself healthy, cheerful, and full of energy.

First you lie on your stomach, and place an ice cube at the point of Feng Fu and hold it for 20 minutes. You can either lie there or fix it there with a bandage, or scarf.

Do this regularly with breaks of 2-3 days and do it in the morning on an empty stomach and at night before going to bed. After 30-40 seconds, you will feel slight heat come onto the point. In the first days, you will have a feeling of euphoria due to the release of endorphins.

What will it do? Improve sleep quality - Improve mood - Heal the digestive system - Relieve colds - Relief of headaches, toothaches, and pain. It can help: Respiratory diseases - Cardiovascular disease - Thyroid issues - PMS - Menstrual cycle - Mental health.

Reminds me of a peculiar thing in a Mel Brooks movie, "Life Stinks", where a skinny old man walked by their table and one homeless guy said he hasn't long to live because his '11's' are up...said the two vertical muscles that support the head and neck from the back will stick out when you are close to death! I think this is an urban legend about the 11's. Don't know if there is anything to it but the ice cube thing seems to give it credibility. - JWD - Ice cube at Feng Fu pressure point to Rejuvenate

03/27/15 - Flying Humanoid Recorded Over Peru
KeelyNet I'm Dr. Anthony Choy, investigative journalist and National Coordinator of the Peruvian Association of Ufology (APU). This new video of the phenomenon called "Flying Humanoid" is part of a series of sightings since November 2010, I have been researching in Peru. This video was recorded on Friday, March 6th, 2015 at 6:15 pm by the young radio producer and television Cesar Rodriguez in the middle of the selvatic city of Puerto Maldonado,in Madre de Dios, south of Perú. According to the history of the witness, the sighting lasted about five minutes, in which the phenomenon had a human form, with head, trunk, arms and legs flying over the city, disappearing raised and lost in the clouds. Research is open. Email: ovniperu333@yahoo.com

According to Dr. Choy, Rodriguez witnessed the flying humanoid for five minutes before it flew into the clouds. He could make out all of the humanoid’s body parts as it flew around over the city. Dr. Choy says the video is one of a series of Peruvian humanoid and UFO sightings he’s been researching since 2010. (Click link for video) - Flying Humanoid Recorded Over Peru

03/27/15 - Indian inventor Shivkar Talpade flew the first airplane
KeelyNet Sanskrit scholar Shivkar Bapuji Talpade had designed a basic aircraft called Marutsakthi (meaning Power of Air) based on Vedic technology and had it take off unmanned before a large audience in the Chowpathy beach of Bombay.

The importance of the Wright brothers lies in the fact, that it was a manned flight for a distance of 120 feet and Orville Wright became the first man to fly.

But Talpade’s unmanned aircraft flew to a height of 1500 feet before crashing down and the historian Evan Koshtka, has described Talpade as the ‘first creator of an aircraft’.

Hawaizaada: A Flawed Masterpiece - “Ancient India had planes” screamed one headline on NDTV and then there followed laughter and ridicule. “Airplanes in Vedic age could fly between planets” was another headline in another newspaper and more ridicule and laughter followed. Over the last few weeks, ever since Anand Bodas, a pilot and Ameya Jadhav, an M.Tech graduate and a Sanskrit scholar presented a research paper on aviation in Vedic era during the 102nd Indian Science Congress, we have witnessed this constant mocking about what is often derided as “Hindu pseudo-science”.

When news anchors discuss the Prime Minister’s statements on probable advancements in medical sciences in ‘ancient India’, one can clearly witness that ridiculous smirk on their faces as if to tell us how outrageously silly we are as a nation. The general refrain is simple, anything that is ‘Hindu’ has to be simply outdated, outwitted and outlived now by Western science. Us Macaulay putras have been so deeply ingrained by the British and the West to reject the old India that we instinctively react with disbelief when we come across anything even remotely suggestive of scientific advancement in our history.

Tran and Robertson’s 20-pound, Flash Gordon-style prototype was born through $600 of their own money and about as many trials. Their sound-wave device is free of toxic chemicals and eliminates collateral damage from sprinkler systems. If mounted on drones, it could improve safety for firefighters confronting large forest fires or urban blazes.

“Fire also is a huge issue in space,” Tran says. “In space, extinguisher contents spread all over. But you can direct sound waves without gravity,” adds Robertson. Initially, both students thought big speakers and high frequencies would douse a fire.

“But it’s low-frequency sounds—like the thump-thump bass in hip-hop that works,” says Tran, who joked that rappers like 50 Cent could probably douse a fire, and that hip-hop celebrity endorsements might be just the ticket to hawk their fire extinguisher.

Their contraption makes use of an ATX power supply and a Pyle subwoofer to produce fire-fighting low-frequency sound waves. There are four things that a fire needs in order to keep burning, and one of those things is oxygen. By pummeling the flames with a barrage of sound (it’s the accompanying pressure that does the real work), that access can be temporarily interrupted and the fire simply dies with an inaudible whimper. You can see how it all goes down in the duo’s amazing demo video: it takes just seconds for their invention to extinguish a simulated kitchen fire.

It has taken time for their idea to catch on. In researching ideas for the class project, Tran learned that the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) was working on the concept, and that West Georgia University was working on “Prometheus.” So Tran thought, “Why don’t we be the ones to make it happen?”

Robertson and Tran’s classmates said, “You guys will make us fail.” Several professors also threw cold water on their idea before they convinced Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor Brian Mark to mentor their project. “My initial impression was that it wouldn’t work,” he says. “Some students take the safe path, but Viet and Seth took the higher-risk option.”

“The provisional patent application they filed gives them a year to talk publicly about the invention, to test the market and to determine whether pursuing the patent makes sense,” says Carolyn Klenner, intellectual property paralegal, in Mason’s Office of Technology Transfer, who assisted them with the patent application.

Robertson and Tran want to turn their prototype into a commercial product. They’re also working on ways to fight fires larger than the ones on your stove. Tran envisions a future where intelligent swarms of speaker-toting drones do battle with larger blazes — including forest fires.

03/27/15 - How to power your home with a hacked car battery
You need $20,000, plenty of time – and an iron nerve. But is ripping up a Tesla car and adapting its battery the future of cheap, sustainable home power?

Employing nothing more than a battery the size of a single mattress, some unfathomable technological wizardry, a year of his time and $20,000, Jason Hughes has managed to store energy from his solar-power system, meaning he can blow-dry his hair, charge his mobile phone, and stick the kettle on after Better Call Saul, all thanks to an out of whack Tesla Model S.

So how easy is it to hack a car battery? Not very. A slew of boring time-lapse YouTube videos in which you can watch a man take a battery apart – slowly, meticulously, and incomprehensibly – reveal you would have more luck trying to fashion a flux capacitor out of a pair of tights. On the website hackaday.com, a Tesla battery hacker, when asked about the difficulties of tearing down the pack, replied that “a wrong move … could mean instant death”.

03/27/15 - Airships: The future of aviation?

KeelyNet

A group of academics from the University's School of Engineering have been members of a pan European research team that believes airships may be the 'green' answer to the future growth of aviation. The Multibody Advanced Airship for Transport (MAAT) project aims to position airships as the solution for future air transportation that is safe, efficient, cheap and environmentally friendly.

As engineering projects go, a plan to reintroduce airships as a cheap and energy-efficient means for mass transportation of people and goods might be the definition of blue sky thinking but there is a need for a mid-range transport system that efficiently trades speed for fuel consumption. It is therefore rather fitting that approximately 85 years after Barnes Wallis of the Airship Guarantee Company, a subsidiary of Vickers-Armstrongs, based in Howden designed and successfully tested the R100 the first of the Imperial Airships that we should be now be reconsidering airships as a green alternative for future passenger and freight use.

The MAAT project, made up of eight nations and led by the Universita di Modena e Reggio Emilia in Italy, envisages the design of a cruiser which can travel across the globe on a set route. Smaller feeder ships carrying people and goods would then be able to dock onto the cruiser while it is still moving.

The primary energy source for the MAAT is through harvesting sunlight from photovoltaic arrays mounted on the upper airship surface to provide sufficient electric power during the day to operate the airship's systems, and provide life support, propulsion and control, while also producing sufficient excess energy that can be stored to facilitate continuous MAAT operation at night.

Te University of Lincoln team's research has focused on how to make the most efficient use of energy generated by the photovoltaic cells on the airships and its subsequent use in the electrical power systems, energy storage and the propulsive power requirements. It is hoped that with the introduction of innovative propulsion systems that the limitations of traditional propellers at high altitudes will be overcome resulting in an efficient propulsive system. A paper detailing the Lincoln group's initial findings was previously published in the Journal of Aerospace Engineering.

It described the energy systems and presented various design options that could be adopted for airships, particularly highlighting the issues of day/night operation and its impact on the on-board energy storage systems. The project has moved on significantly since then with a revised approach to the energy harvesting, distribution and storage utilising a modular approach to simplify future scaling and address system integrity under failure conditions.

Tim Smith, Senior Research Fellow at the Lincoln School of Engineering, said: "While the concept of a feeder-cruiser arrangement for airships is not entirely novel, the projected scale and operating altitude of the proposed MAAT is unprecedented. Operation is based on a large-scale 'cruiser' ship at high altitudes of around 15km, at airspeeds of up to 200km/h for extended periods, on pan European routes along which there exist exchange points where VTOL 'feeder' airships operate from ground stations rendezvousing and docking with the cruiser in order to exchange passengers and freight. The underlying concept is to have multiple feeders docking with the cruiser."

It is forecast that by 2020 the number of aircraft passengers will reach 400 million. The movement of freight by air is expected to increase by more than 340 per cent over the next 20 years. During the same period congestion at many of the UK's airports will squeeze out cargo operations because of economic and environmental reasons. Consequently if the market demand for air freight is to be met, either there will have to be significant investment in new airport infrastructure or alternative transport forms need to be considered.

MAAT would present lower costs of transportation than any other current transport system, as it does not require fuelling and its vertical take-offs would reduce delivery times and free-up runway space across the globe. Also, silent landing and take-off operations would reduce the environmental impact of air travel allowing 24-hour operation within busy cities. - Airships: The future of aviation?

03/27/15 - Smartphones cause drooping jowls and 'tech-neck' wrinkles

KeelyNet

The latest ailment to result from modern technology can be found mostly in people aged 18 to 39 who own an average of three devices. Tech neck refers to a specific crease just above the collar bone that is caused by repeated bending of the neck to look at the screen of a portable device.

"The problem of wrinkles and sagging of the jowls and neck used to begin in late middle age but, in the last 10 years, because of 'tech neck', it has become a problem for a generation of younger women," said Dr Christopher Rowland Payne, a consultant dermatologist at The London Clinic.

"Neck skin is exposed to sun every day because of low neckline, especially in women, but people are less inclined to think of protecting their necks than their faces.

"This is bad news for neck skin as it starts off finer and sun thins it further. Finer skin wrinkles more readily and the fat of the neck may sag."

"As the head tilts forward the forces seen by the neck surges to 27 pounds at 15 degrees, 40 pounds at 30 degrees, 49 pounds at 45 degrees and 60 pounds at 60 degrees," said Kenneth Hansraj, a back surgeon and author of the study.

Hansraj warned that chronic screen-staring could "deteriorate the back and neck muscles to the point of needing surgery". The latest tech-neck malady is believed to have come about in the last 10 years directly as a result of the rise of mobile - Smartphones cause drooping jowls and 'tech-neck' wrinkles

03/23/15 - Sheldrake and Lipton - A Quest Beyond the Limits of the Ordinary
Commenter; "Dr. Rupert Sheldrake and Dr. Bruce Lipton are at the very tip of a spear, that represents a very deep and fundamental paradigm shift. It is piercing a veil of a multilayered ignorance needed by humanity to move forward as one species and past a very small group of knowledge gate-keepers that have plagued human civilization for centuries."

In the video, they recount Cleve Backster's experiment with brine shrimp where shrimp killed at a distance would excite shrimp in another tank when a human did it. But when a computer did it, the other shrimp did not sense the death of their mates. They said this was the report of a replication by others and yet the video I found shows it works the same whether a machine kills the shrimp or a human.

They argue against molecular genetics as the only path to healing, that it should include field forces such as morphic resonance and electrical fields that actually control the form and interaction of living matter. In other words, stop going after the trees and focus on the forest as a holistic total.

Holistic, that is my approach with my Partial Cloning Project which will cymatically encode the dna patterns of an 18 year old donor into my 60 year old forming dna as target, causing a partial copying of the donors young dna and resulting in a reversal in age for the target, ergo, making me younger. I will freely share all parameters so anyone can replicate this Panacea (universal cure) to cure illness and handicaps as well as provide virtual immortality by refreshing the dna patterns every 20-40 years. So please contribute to support my experiment. - JWD (Click link for videos.) - Sheldrake and Lipton - A Quest Beyond the Limits of the Ordinary

03/23/15 - Quantum Experiments Show Reality Is an Illusion
No one in the world can fathom what quantum mechanics is, this is perhaps the most important thing you need to know about it. Granted, many physicists have learned to use its laws and even predict phenomena based on quantum calculations. But it is still unclear why the observer of an experiment determines behavior of the system and causes it to favor one state over another. “Theories and Applications” picked examples of experiments with outcomes which will inevitably be influenced by the observer, and tried to figure out how quantum mechanics is going to deal with the intervention of conscious thought in material reality.

Electrons and fullerenes cease to show their wave properties, aluminum plates cool down and unstable particles freeze while going through their decay, under the watchful eye of the observer the world changes. Why cannot this be the evidence of involvement of our minds in the workings of the world? So maybe Carl Jung and Wolfgang Pauli (Austrian physicist and Nobel laureate, the pioneer of quantum mechanics) were correct after all when they said that the laws of physics and consciousness should be seen as complementary?

We are only one step away from admitting that the world around us is just an illusory product of our mind. Scary, isn’t it? Let us then again try to appeal to physicists. Especially when in recent years, they favor less the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics, with its mysterious collapse of the wave function, giving place to another quite down to earth and reliable term decoherence.

Here’s the thing, in all these experiments with the observations, the experimenters inevitably impacted the system. They lit it with a laser and installed measuring devices. But this is a common and very important principle:you cannot observe the system or measure its properties without interacting with it. And where there is interaction, there will be modification of properties. Especially when a tiny quantum system is impacted by colossal quantum objects. So the eternal Buddhist observer neutrality is impossible.

This is explained by the term “decoherence”, which is an irreversible, from the point of view of thermodynamics, process of altering the quantum properties of the system when it interacts with another larger system. During this interaction the quantum system loses its original properties and becomes a classic one while “obeying ” the large system. This explains the paradox of Schrödinger’s cat: the cat is such a large system that it simply cannot be isolated from the rest of the world. The mere design of this mental experiment is not quite correct.

In any event, compared to the reality of consciousness as an act of creation, decoherence represents a much more convenient approach. Perhaps even too convenient. Indeed, with this approach, the entire classical world becomes one big consequence of decoherence. And as the authors of one of the most prominent books in this field stated, such an approach would also logically lead to statements like “there are no particles in the world” or ” there is no time on a fundamental level”.

Is it the creator-observer or powerful decoherence? We have to choose between the two evils. But remember, now scientists are increasingly convinced that the basis of our mental processes is created by these notorious quantum effects. So, where the observation ends and reality begins, is up to each of us. (Click link for videos.) - Quantum Experiments Show Reality Is an Illusion

03/23/15 - Don’t edit the human germ line
Heritable human genetic modifications pose serious risks, and the therapeutic benefits are tenuous, warn Edward Lanphier, Fyodor Urnov and colleagues.

It is thought that studies involving the use of genome-editing tools to modify the DNA of human embryos will be published shortly1. There are grave concerns regarding the ethical and safety implications of this research. There is also fear of the negative impact it could have on important work involving the use of genome-editing techniques in somatic (non-reproductive) cells.

Genome-editing technologies may offer a powerful approach to treat many human diseases, including HIV/AIDS, haemophilia, sickle-cell anaemia and several forms of cancer3. All techniques currently in various stages of clinical development focus on modifying the genetic material of somatic cells, such as T cells (a type of white blood cell). These are not designed to affect sperm or eggs.

In our view, genome editing in human embryos using current technologies could have unpredictable effects on future generations. This makes it dangerous and ethically unacceptable. Such research could be exploited for non-therapeutic modifications. We are concerned that a public outcry about such an ethical breach could hinder a promising area of therapeutic development, namely making genetic changes that cannot be inherited.

At this early stage, scientists should agree not to modify the DNA of human reproductive cells. Should a truly compelling case ever arise for the therapeutic benefit of germ­line modification, we encourage an open discussion around the appropriate course of action.

Dialogue needed - Ten years ago, the Genetics and Public Policy Center, now in Washington DC, brought together more than 80 experts from the United States and Canada to consider the scientific and ethical consequences of genetically modifying the human germ line. Now that the capability for human germline engineering has emerged, we urge the international scientific community to engage in this type of dialogue. This is needed both to establish how to proceed in the immediate term, and to assess whether, and under what circumstances — if any — future research involving genetic modification of human germ cells should take place. Such discussions must include the public as well as experts and academics.

An excellent precedent for open, early discussion as new scientific capabilities emerge was set by the hearings, consultations and reports involving scientists, bioethicists, regulators and the general public that preceded the UK government’s decision to legalize mitochondrial DNA transfer in February. We are not, of course, making a comparison between the replacement of faulty mitochondrial DNA in an egg or embryo with healthy DNA from a female donor and the use of genome-editing in human embryos. In mitochondrial transfer, the aim is to prevent life-threatening diseases by replacing a known and tiny fraction of the overall genome.

Key to all discussion and future research is making a clear distinction between genome editing in somatic cells and in germ cells. A voluntary moratorium in the scientific community could be an effective way to discourage human germline modification and raise public awareness of the difference between these two techniques. Legitimate concerns regarding the safety and ethical impacts of germline editing must not impede the significant progress being made in the clinical development of approaches to potentially cure serious debilitating diseases. So they'll be screwing around for another 10-20 years before we see anything useful. My Partial Cloning Project will do it NOW and release it NOW. - JWD - Don’t edit the human germ line

03/23/15 - Alzheimer’s ultrasound treatment restores memory function

Australian researchers have come up with a non-invasive ultrasound technology that clears the brain of neurotoxic amyloid plaques - structures that are responsible for memory loss and a decline in cognitive function in Alzheimer’s patients.

If a person has Alzheimer’s disease, it’s usually the result of a build-up of two types of lesions - amyloid plaques, and neurofibrillary tangles. Amyloid plaques sit between the neurons and end up as dense clusters of beta-amyloid molecules, a sticky type of protein that clumps together and forms plaques.

Australian researchers have come up with a non-invasive ultrasound technology that clears the brain of neurotoxic amyloid plaques - structures that are responsible for memory loss and a decline in cognitive function in Alzheimer’s patients.

If a person has Alzheimer’s disease, it’s usually the result of a build-up of two types of lesions - amyloid plaques, and neurofibrillary tangles. Amyloid plaques sit between the neurons and end up as dense clusters of beta-amyloid molecules, a sticky type of protein that clumps together and forms plaques.

Neurofibrillary tangles are found inside the neurons of the brain, and they’re caused by defective tau proteins that clump up into a thick, insoluble mass. This causes tiny filaments called microtubules to get all twisted, which disrupts the transportation of essential materials such as nutrients and organelles along them, just like when you twist up the vacuum cleaner tube.

As we don’t have any kind of vaccine or preventative measure for Alzheimer’s - a disease that affects 343,000 people in Australia, and 50 million worldwide - it’s been a race to figure out how best to treat it, starting with how to clear the build-up of defective beta-amyloid and tau proteins from a patient’s brain.

Publishing in Science Translational Medicine, the team describes the technique as using a particular type of ultrasound called a focused therapeutic ultrasound, which non-invasively beams sound waves into the brain tissue. By oscillating super-fast, these sound waves are able to gently open up the blood-brain barrier, which is a layer that protects the brain against bacteria, and stimulate the brain’s microglial cells to activate. Microglila cells are basically waste-removal cells, so they’re able to clear out the toxic beta-amyloid clumps that are responsible for the worst symptoms of Alzheimer’s.

The team reports fully restoring the memories of 75 percent of the mice they tested it on, with zero damage to the surrounding brain tissue. They found that the treated mice displayed improved performance in three memory tasks - a maze, a test to get them to recognise new objects, and one to get them to remember the places they should avoid.

03/23/15 - Giant Lava Tubes Possible On the Moon
KeelyNet New analysis of lunar geology combined with gravity data from GRAIL suggests the Moon could harbor lava tubes several miles wide. "David Blair, a graduate student in Purdue's Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences, led the study that examined whether empty lava tubes more than 1 kilometer wide could remain structurally stable on the moon.

'We found that if lunar lava tubes existed with a strong arched shape like those on Earth, they would be stable at sizes up to 5,000 meters, or several miles wide, on the moon,' Blair said. 'This wouldn't be possible on Earth, but gravity is much lower on the moon and lunar rock doesn't have to withstand the same weathering and erosion.

In theory, huge lava tubes – big enough to easily house a city – could be structurally sound on the moon.'" You can read their paper here (PDF).

If this is so, then the possibility of huge colonies on the Moon increases significantly, as it will be much easier to build these colonies inside such lava tubes.

The team found that a lava tube's stability depended on the width, roof thickness and the stress state of the cooled lava, and the team modeled a range of these variables. The researchers also modeled lava tubes with walls created by lava placed in one thick layer and with lava placed in many thin layers, Blair said. - Giant Lava Tubes Possible On the Moon

03/23/15 - Mars One finalist reveals space venture's major flaws
KeelyNet Dr. Joseph Roche, one of 100 candidates shortlisted for the planned one-way trip to the red planet, speaks out about the 'hopelessly flawed scheme.'

“When you join the ‘Mars One Community,’ which happens automatically if you applied as a candidate, they start giving you points,” Roche wrote in an email. “You get points for getting through each round of the selection process (but just an arbitrary number of points, not anything to do with ranking), and then the only way to get more points is to buy merchandise from Mars One or to donate money to them.”

That Mars One needs funding is no big surprise. The initial trip to Mars alone is expected to cost north of $6 billion. The fact that they're asking candidates to purchase, as Roche describes "T-shirts, hoodies, and posters," as well as "kindly donate 75 percent of their speaking fees back to the organization" sounds like a scam.

As for the selection process, remember that astronomic number of applicants (202,000) the Mars One team has been feeding the media now for years, most recently on Feb. 15? The actual number, according to Australian journalist Elmo Keep, is only 2,761. He told Sky News in February that after interviewing people close to the project over the course of a year, he believes that "there is scant-to-no proof Mars One has any capability to make it real."

It's also worth noting that for someone with a decent chance of making the final cut, Roche says he has never met anyone from the Mars One team in person. The closest was a 10-minute Skype interview with the organization's chief medical officer, Norbert Kraft.

“That means all the info they have collected on me is a crap video I made, an application form that I filled out with mostly one-word answers … and then a 10-minute Skype interview,” Roche said. “That is just not enough info to make a judgment on someone about anything.”

Roche's scathing revelations aside, the Mars One program also lost its reality television deal with Darlow Smithson. The series, via television rights and sponsorship, was expected to bring in billions to help fund the expedition's missions. - Mars One finalist reveals space venture's major flaws

03/23/15 - Yosemite's Half Dome capture California's historic drought

KeelyNet

Snow in California's Sierra Nevada range typically reaches its greatest depths in late March, covering peaks like Yosemite's famed Half Dome. But this is the fourth consecutive year of drought in California. Earlier this month, state officials reported that the Sierra snowpack, which much of California relies on for water, is just five percent of its normal depth.

At Yosemite, Half Dome is generally quilted with snow by this time of year. The iconic peak stands roughly 9,000 feet tall -- and is today virtually snow free, with no big snow storms in the forecast for the remainder of the month. - Yosemite's Half Dome capture California's historic drought

03/23/15 - Acoustic Structure Could Evade Sonar
A proposed acoustic version of a material that conducts electricity along its surface could lead to an improved way to hide submarines from sonar.

Materials called topological insulators conduct electricity only along their surfaces and have a range of potential uses. A team in Singapore has now proposed a structure that could do the same thing for sound waves, causing them to be guided in just one direction around the surface of a region and to ignore imperfections that would scatter the sound in an ordinary material. If it can be built, such a structure might find uses in acoustic technologies, such as soundproofing and sonar stealth systems.

In topological insulators, electrons flow on the surface of a material and travel with less scattering from impurities than in ordinary conductors. The mathematical description of these materials treats the electrons as waves in a periodic structure and generates a range of frequencies (a band gap) in which waves cannot propagate through the interior.

Researchers have high hopes for using them in new technologies, but they have also wondered whether the effects could be duplicated for other types of waves, such as light and mechanical vibrations [1, 2]. Now Baile Zhang and co-workers at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have created an acoustic topological insulator that they say could be used to control sound waves in new ways.

One example of a topological insulator is a two-dimensional material with a strong magnetic field applied along the 3rd dimension [3]. Under the right conditions, in response to the field the electrons move in circles arranged in a periodic pattern. But at the edges of the material, electrons can only execute half-circles. These semicircular routes can link up to form a circuit around the edge, a path that electrons can travel in only one direction (because of the direction of their orbits). In addition, current through this channel is resistant to the scattering that would usually occur if there were any flaws present in the crystal lattice, because the one-way motion prevents all backward scattering.

In the acoustic version proposed by Zhang and his colleagues, the periodic lattice of orbiting electrons is replaced by a two-dimensional array of spinning metal cylinders in a triangular lattice [4]. Each cylinder is surrounded by a fluid, which could simply be air, contained within a larger cylindrical shell made of a material that is transparent to sound waves. The space between the cylindrical shells is filled with the same fluid, but it’s stationary. The rotation of each metal cylinder produces a little vortex in its surrounding fluid within its shell.

Sound waves cannot propagate through the middle of this structure because the periodic pattern produces a sonic band gap, just like the electronic band gap in earlier topological insulators. But the edges are different—the rotating fluid supports propagation in one direction around the perimeter.

Zhang and his colleagues say that their design shouldn’t be too hard to make. Because the edge states can guide sound waves very precisely, says Zhang, such a structure might be useful for hiding objects from sonar. There are already proposals for doing this using sonic “invisibility shields” comparable to those devised for microwaves or visible light [5], but pronounced bumps on a surface can undermine such schemes. “An irregular protrusion is one of the biggest headaches for stealth engineers,” Zhang says. But a coating of an acoustic topological insulator would allow sound waves to be captured and guided in a single direction over the surface of an object of any shape. - Acoustic Structure Could Evade Sonar

03/23/15 - Twitter Adds Tool To Report Tweets To the Police
Twitter is ramping up its efforts to combat harassment with a tool to help users report abusive content to law enforcement.

The reports would include the flagged tweet and its URL, the time at which it was sent, the user name and account URL of the person who posted it, as well as a link to Twitter's guidelines on how authorities can request non-public user account information from Twitter.

It is left up to the user to forward the report to law enforcement and left up to law enforcement to request the user information from Twitter.

In developing the tool, Twitter received feedback from a number of outside groups including the National Network to End Domestic Violence, which works to end violence against women. The new tool is not designed exclusively for women, but it could help in this area. Women have been ruthlessly targeted on Twitter and on other sites like Reddit and 4chan, due to sexism in the video game industry, sometimes referred to as “Gamergate.”

Twitter has been working to improve its abuse-reporting tools, which all rely on users to flag content. The company recently streamlined its tools for reporting issues like impersonation and self-harm. Just last week Twitter banned the posting of revenge porn and nude images that have been stolen or are being used without permission, after a similar move by Reddit. - Twitter Adds Tool To Report Tweets To the Police
