10/01/14 - Using the Rivers of the Troposphere
Fresh water has been dubbed “Blue Gold” in many publications as potable water will be to this century what oil was to the last century. Less than three percent of the water on the earth’s surface is fresh water. When we deduct the amount in the ice at each pole and the rivers flowing in uninhabited areas that number is less than one percent. From this amount the nearly 7 billion people on earth use to survive.

This paper examines the current static status of weather modification methodologies. It further examines the existence of atmospheric ‘rivers’ and their use for a new chapter in weather modification. Although “Weather Modification” has always been analogous with rain production, this paper will not concentrate only on that aspect but all parts of the use of the ‘river’. This paper will also examine the use of advanced weather modification technologies to severe weather abatement.

Most recently, the use of sending Ions into the air has attracted attention with the Swiss company building antenna farms in the UAE. They claim they have produced 52 rainstorms in an area that sees, maybe, two rain events a year. The theory is that these 100 transmitters will send enough charged particles into the atmosphere where the negatively charged ions will tend to rise into the hot air and attract dust. From that point, moisture will be attracted to the “charged dust” and eventually become a cumulus cloud and yield rain.

Rivers in the sky - Before the advent of the advanced Electro Optical (EO) weather satellite the entire plethora of images was relegated to the military satellites looking for acts of war on the behalf of other countries. Some of the early EO imagery was taken from aircraft and termed “False Color” as they used processes to attenuate certain light spectrum for mostly geologic (Oil, Gas and Minerals) pursuits. Early weather satellites available to the public were daylight only. Current feeds can aquiess large amounts of data of great use to all parts of the scientific, commercial and ordinary citizen community.

While geology influences the path of a body of water so does it affect the micron sized H2O water in the air. The geology of a land mass will create different evaporation rates for any water that may fall on it, or move above it. Geology will also absorb the energy from the sun in different ways. Geology can also influence the weather far away.

Planting a Seed in the River - What makes it rain would be the next question. In order for glaciogenic seeding to work you need to have large stratus or cumulous cloud within close proximity to the target. Once the cloud is picked it is seeded from the top or bottom in order to make the moisture heavy enough in the cloud to overcome gravity and upward air movement. The Ion antenna relies on the charged dust to provide the same incentive to get the water to come out of the stratus or cumulus cloud. These two methods need clouds with structure enough to support rain. That is a real problem in places where there is a great need of rain. There are no large stratus or cumulus clouds.

Clouds need to have that upward air movement in order to form. Subsidence (the sinking of air) will not let this happen. No amount of seeding will cause upward air movement. This would normally be the end of the story.

Clouds will form in a sequence of types. Theoretically, the high cirrus clouds would eventually grow into the stratus or cumulus cloud needed to produce rain. The progress is normally halted once the cirrus clouds reach any number of obstacles to growth mentioned above.

There is enough water in the earth’s atmosphere to cover the entire State of California in more than 1 kilometer (.62 mile) of fresh water. - Using the Rivers of the Troposphere

10/01/14 - Australians Use Resonant Frequencies to Make It Rain Since 1999


Apparently an Australian company named Aquiess has been implementing electromagnetic frequency technologies to direct atmospheric moisture over drought stricken areas or forest fires and inducing rainfall where it is needed.

Many independent researchers have come to realize that this technology exists and that it has been experimented with extensively for the better part of a century and has been implemented covertly on a large scale by governmental organizations for well over a decade.

I find myself happy for the confirmation that the technology exists but troubled by the moral and ethical implications. After all, if there's one thing we've all learned it's that technological advancement has outpaced society's ethical evolution and it is all too possible that technologies like this will benefit the highest bidder and leave the already impoverished bone dry.

It seems that Aquiess, Inc. is keen on helping those suffering from droughts. Will governments and other corporations uphold those standards or just pretend to.

In his statement Dr Shah says: "We today undertake to deliver gentle rain within the next 45 days to break and end the drought and in particular extend the coming short rainy season."

Early rains came in and subsequent anomalous rainfall delivered better than expected results. The season was also extended beyond the normal short rainy season. Aquiess PDF for details. Aquiess Videos. - Australians Use Resonant Frequencies to Make It Rain Since 1999

10/01/14 - Coolerado Air conditioning 6 tons using 600 watts
A new evaporative cooling technology can deliver cooler supply air temperatures than either direct or indirect evaporative cooling systems, without increasing humidity. The technology, known as the Coolerado Cooler™ has been described as an “ultra cooler” because of its performance capabilities relative to other evaporative cooling products. Coolerado Cooler™ systems evaporate water in a secondary (or working) airstream, which is discharged in multiple stages.

No water or humidity is added to the primary (or product) airstream in the process. This approach takes advantage of the thermodynamic properties of air, and it applies both direct and indirect cooling technologies in an innovative cooling system that is drier than direct evaporative cooling and cooler than indirect cooling. The technology also uses much less energy than conventional vapor compression air-conditioning (A/C) systems and therefore can be a cost effective and energy saving technology.

Performance tests have shown that the efficiency of the Coolerado Cooler™ is 1.5 to 4 times higher than that of conventional vapor compression cooling systems, while it provides the same amount of cooling. This technology significantly reduces electric demand for cooling and can provide energy and cost efficient solutions to the systemic degeneration of precious natural resources, and climatic realities of global campaigns.

The technology uses a water-fueled cooling system powered solely with fan energy to provide more cooling with less energy. Incorporating this concept with multiple purges of moist secondary/working air creates a staged indirect evaporative cooling process. This process, known as the Maisotsenko Cycle, is the innovation that led to the Coolerado Cooler™ receipt of the prestigious R&D 100 Award from R&D Magazine in 2004.

The Coolerado Cooler™ is modular in design and its capacity configurations range up to 500 ton commercial units. With modifications, the Coolerado Cooler™ can be integrated into a pre-cooling system for ventilation air in new or existing heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems (HVAC) or into vehicle A/C units for the transportation industries as well as the military industries operating globally.

For example, current A/C units on armored vehicles in Afghanistan and Iraq take away vital power from the engine to keep the 120° outside temperatures from causing injuries to the soldiers jeopardizing the supply of troop’s vital resources.

With Coolerado Cooler™ technology, vehicle cabs will be able to maintain a constant cool temperature, even with the engine off, and will give the engine more power and decrease emissions by more than 50%. Coolerado Cooler™ can therefore be retrofitted in existing mobile military operations including transportation vehicles, tents, temporary mobile buildings and other such previously ineffective components of military and non-military operations. - Coolerado Air conditioning 6 tons using 600 watts

10/01/14 - Weather Control as Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction
Environmental modification techniques (ENMOD) for military use constitute, in the present context of global warfare, the ultimate weapon of mass destruction. Rarely acknowledged in the debate on global climate change, the world's weather can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated electromagnetic weapons. Both the US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use.

Environmental modification techniques have been applied by the US military for more than half a century. US mathematician John von Neumann, in liaison with the US Department of Defense, started his research on weather modification in the late 1940s at the height of the Cold War and foresaw 'forms of climatic warfare as yet unimagined'. During the Vietnam war, cloud-seeding techniques were used, starting in 1967 under Project Popeye, the objective of which was to prolong the monsoon season and block enemy supply routes along the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

The US military has developed advanced capabilities that enable it selectively to alter weather patterns. The technology, which is being perfected under the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), is an appendage of the Strategic Defense Initiative -- 'Star Wars'. From a military standpoint, HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction, operating from the outer atmosphere and capable of destabilising agricultural and ecological systems around the world.

Weather-modification, according to the US Air Force document AF 2025 Final Report, offers the war fighter a wide range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary', capabilities, it says, extend to the triggering of floods, hurricanes, droughts and earthquakes: 'Weather modification will become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally... It could have offensive and defensive applications and even be used for deterrence purposes.

The ability to generate precipitation, fog and storms on earth or to modify space weather... and the production of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of [military] technologies.

In 1977, an international Convention was ratified by the UN General Assembly which banned 'military or other hostile use of environmental modification techniques having widespread, long-lasting or severe effects.' It defined 'environmental modification techniques' as 'any technique for changing --through the deliberate manipulation of natural processes -- the dynamics, composition or structure of the earth, including its biota, lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere, or of outer space.'

According to the Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques: While the substance of the 1977 Convention was reasserted in the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) signed at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio, debate on weather modification for military use has become a scientific taboo.

Military analysts and scientists are mute on the subject. Meteorologists are not investigating the matter and environmentalists are focused on greenhouse gas emissions under the Kyoto Protocol. Neither is the possibility of climatic or environmental manipulations as part of a military and intelligence agenda, while tacitly acknowledged, part of the broader debate on climate change under UN auspices.

While discussion of the post Cold War military applications of weather warfare is a taboo, the US Air Force has nonetheless acknowledged the strategic importance of ENMOD techniques in the modern battlefield of non-conventional warfare and intel ops, including the conduct, without the enemy's knowledge, of -covert- weather modification operations. At this juncture in our history, US-NATO forces are deployed worldwide.

The US and its allies are not only targeting Syria, Iran and North Korea, they are also threatening Russia and China. The Pentagon has formulated the contours of a global military agenda, a long war, a war without borders.

Weather warfare is the ultimate WMD with the potential of destabilizing an enemy's ecosystem, destroying its agriculture, disabling communications networks. In other words, ENMOD techniques can undermine an entire national economy, impoverish millions of people and kill a nation without the deployment of troops and military hardware. - Weather Control as Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction

10/01/14 - 4 Lense Invisibility with The Rochester Cloak
“There’ve been many high tech approaches to cloaking and the basic idea behind these is to take light and have it pass around something as if it isn’t there, often using high-tech or exotic materials,” said John Howell, a professor of physics at the University of Rochester. Forgoing the specialized components, Howell and graduate student Joseph Choi developed a combination of four standard lenses that keeps the object hidden as the viewer moves up to several degrees away from the optimal viewing position.

“This is the first device that we know of that can do three-dimensional, continuously multidirectional cloaking, which works for transmitting rays in the visible spectrum,” said Choi, a PhD student at Rochester’s Institute of Optics. Many cloaking designs work fine when you look at an object straight on, but if you move your viewpoint even a little, the object becomes visible, explains Howell. Choi added that previous cloaking devices can also cause the background to shift drastically, making it obvious that the cloaking device is present.

In order to both cloak an object and leave the background undisturbed, the researchers determined the lens type and power needed, as well as the precise distance to separate the four lenses. To test their device, they placed the cloaked object in front of a grid background. As they looked through the lenses and changed their viewing angle by moving from side to side, the grid shifted accordingly as if the cloaking device was not there. There was no discontinuity in the grid lines behind the cloaked object, compared to the background, and the grid sizes (magnification) matched.

The Rochester Cloak can be scaled up as large as the size of the lenses, allowing fairly large objects to be cloaked. And, unlike some other devices, it’s broadband so it works for the whole visible spectrum of light, rather than only for specific frequencies.

Their simple configuration improves on other cloaking devices, but it’s not perfect. “This cloak bends light and sends it through the center of the device, so the on-axis region cannot be blocked or cloaked,” said Choi. This means that the cloaked region is shaped like a doughnut. He added that they have slightly more complicated designs that solve the problem. Also, the cloak has edge effects, but these can be reduced when sufficiently large lenses are used. Wonder if they could do this with Fresnel flat lenses? - JWD - 4 Lense Invisibility with The Rochester Cloak

10/01/14 - Are the World's Religions Ready For ET?
KeelyNet At the current rate of discovery, astronomers will have identified more than a million exoplanets by the year 2045. That means, if life is at all common in the Milky Way, astronomers could soon detect it.

Realization that the nature of the debate about life on other worlds is about to fundamentally change, lead Vanderbilt astronomer David Weintraub to begin thinking seriously about how people will react to such a discovery.

He realized that people's reactions will be heavily influenced by their religious beliefs, so he decided to find out what theologians and leaders from the world's major religions have to say about the matter.

The result is a book titled Religions and Extraterrestrial Life, published by Springer this month. He discovered that from Baptists to Buddhists, from Catholics to Mormons, from Islam to the Anglican Communion, religious views on alien life differ widely.

In answer to the question “Are we ready?” Weintraub concludes, “While some of us claim to be ready, a great many of us probably are not… very few among us have spent much time thinking hard about what actual knowledge about extraterrestrial life, whether viruses or single-celled creatures or bipeds piloting intergalactic spaceships, might mean for our personal beliefs [and] our relationships with the divine.”

I hope the aliens RECOIL IN REVULSION and wipe the minds of those who allowed themselves to become infected with these primitive fairy stories. Or just isolate them from any advanced technology or assistance until they understand the nature of reality. Let them wallow in their endless wars and infighting. - JWD - Are the World's Religions Ready For ET?

10/01/14 - Drone Camera Flies Off Your Wrist Falcon Style To Capture The Moment
Over the past couple of years, drones have become popular enough to the point where a new release doesn't excite most people. But Nixie is different. It's a drone that you wear, like a bracelet. Whenever you want to let it soar, you give it a command to unwrap, power-up, and let it go. It follows you using your cellphone signal.

After "setting your camera free", the drone soars around you, keeping you in its frame. Unfortunately, my Nixie would capture me most often writing on the computer, but you can probably understand the appeal to those who are doing anything worth capturing on video. Examples given include mountain climbing, hanging out with a friend at the park, biking through a trail, and jumping off of a boat. - Drone Camera Flies Off Your Wrist Falcon Style To Capture The Moment

09/27/14 - After Armageddon
The dramatization was interspersed with expert opinion who presented step-by-step what could happen in the event of a worldwide apocalyptic event. In this case, a deadly flu virus caused death and a domino effect that led to an end-of-the-world or at least end-of-civilization world where survival is the only goal.

Expert commentators proposed that pandemic illness would lead to power grid failures due to lack of manpower, the failure of the world wide web and eventually the end of civilized society. After Armageddon supposed that when workers become sick and/or die from disease, their jobs are unfilled which leads to services such as garbage pick up, electricity, water, food deliveries and other basic utilities ending.

After Armageddon experts pointed to Hurricane Katrina as a picture of how quickly civilization can turn to anarchy. One expert stated that it took four days for New Orleans residents to go feral in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

The scenario proposed by After Armageddon reminded viewers that ultimately, the survival of they and their families will depend upon planning ahead for the possibility of disaster - whether disaster comes from pandemic illness, natural or manmade disaster. Viewers were reminded that skills our grandparents knew and practiced - gardening, pickling, canning, herbal remedies, and more - will need to be re-learned in the event of an apocalyptic event.

Evacuation plans in the event of emergency should be made - including a plan of where to go and how to get there. Stockpiling of food and basic supplies should be implemented before a disaster or apocalyptic event occurs (see How to Get Started with Stockpiling, Stockpiling: What to Stockpile,Budget for Stockpiling ). After Armageddon also reminded viewers that in order to prepare for disaster, it will be important to be aware that you will need to defend yourself and understand that survival may require force and violence. When people move into survival mode, they do not as they normally would - civilized and peaceful.

One expert on After Armageddon surmised that foraging after a disaster would become a necessary part of survival. As he stated, foraging is a nice word for looting. This illustrates that disaster changes people and changes their behavior - a common theme in After Armageddon.

Another expert said it best: "We like to think that moral progress has made us nice people. We've heard that our distant ancestors were mean and cruel and ruthless, and we can't imagine that we would be such people - but we're nice mainly because we're rich and comfortable. And when we're no longer rich and comfortable, we won't be as nice." - After Armageddon

09/27/14 - Virtual Photons In Electromagnetism

“The book ‘Virtual Photons in Electromagnetism‘ is the first book that explains the meaning of the virtual particle in common electric systems and how “quantum open systems” can be built with experimental demonstrations from our group and others who have had independent verification from the most respected agencies (TUV Reinland, UL Labs etc).”

A journey to an emission free energy age by extracting limitless energy from the quantum vacuum. Welcome to the next industrial revolution!

Virtual Particles in Electromagnetism not only explains in simple terms what role the energy within seemingly empty space-time plays in common electromagnetic systems, it also describes how to extract an excess amount of energy from space-time and then convert it into an observable and usable form of energy. These energy systems create negentropy (negative-entropy). Accredited institutions such as TU?V-Rheinland have already tested and approved some of these systems.

Marcus Reid shows convincingly that new “Asymmetric-Electromagnetic Systems” have become a reality. The faster the energy industry, scientific community and politicians realise and accept that these new energy systems exist, the faster mankind can start the next industrial revolution and see a significant reduction of energy related environmental pollution.

For example in quantum theories the nothingness of seemingly empty space-time is not considered to be an energy and identity free domain. According to these theories, space time is filled with an unlimited and never-ending form of energy (in the form of virtual particles) that exists in every conceivable point in space.

A practical concept that has developed from this view is that material objects themselves are made up from this space-time energy, and are directly connected with it. As the energy density of seemingly empty space-time is practically infinite, the notion came about that visible particles, e.g., atoms, exist as an energetic pressure difference of infinite energy densities.

If this idea is applied to an empty car battery, then there is an infinitely large electromagnetic field at the negative and positive pole. If, however, one measures the voltage, then the display on the measuring device will show 0 V. This is due to the infinitely high electrical fields at the negative and at the positive pole exactly cancelling each other out.

If the battery is now charged and, subsequently, a voltage of 12 V is measured, then an energy di$erence of 12 V has been created. "is describes an energetic pressure di$erence within the in!nite energy density of space-time. Hence the electric voltage is a measure of the degree of an energetic pressure di$erence (broken symmetry) within the uniformly distributed in!nite energy density of space-time.

09/27/14 - Mobile Dialysis Machine Will Clean Your Blood on the Go
KeelyNet Dubbed the Wearable Artificial Kidney (the WAK), this device is the result of more than a decade of development by teams at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles and the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, led by Victor Gura. It is, quite simply, a miniaturized dialysis machine small enough to wear on a toolbelt, simple enough to port in with a standard catheter, and light enough to wear all day.

It works just like a conventional dialysis machine—dirty blood is sucked out of your body, pressed through a series of molecular filters to sieve out the waste, then pumped back in—and on the same schedule as a conventional dialysis machine—3, 4-hour sessions every week—except instead of weighing 200 pounds and resembling a filing cabinet, the WAK weighs 10 pounds and fits around your waist.

The system will be put to the test as part of the FDA's Innovation Pathway program—one designed to fast-track promising medical technologies—later this year in Seattle. This will be the WAK's third set of human trials (limited studies have been performed in the UK and Italy) and the first held in the USA. Should it gain FDA approval, Gura's team plans to further streamline the unit's physical features as well as stretch the cleaning cycle out to 24 hours so it behaves like more like a real kidney. And, best of all, it gives you a decent argument for calling yourself a cyborg while you wear it. - Mobile Dialysis Machine Will Clean Your Blood on the Go

09/27/14 - The Great Lightbulb Conspiracy
Markus Krajewski reports that today, with many countries phasing out incandescent lighting in favor of more-efficient and pricier LEDs, it's worth revisiting the history of the Phoebus cartel — not simply as a quirky anecdote from the annals of technology, but as a cautionary tale about the strange and unexpected pitfalls that can arise when a new technology vanquishes an old one.

Prior to the Phoebus cartel's formation in 1924, household light bulbs typically burned for a total of 1,500 to 2,500 hours; cartel members agreed to shorten that life span to a standard 1,000 hours.

Each factory regularly sent lightbulb samples to the cartel's central laboratory in Switzerland for verification. If any factory submitted bulbs lasting longer or shorter than the regulated life span for its type, the factory was obliged to pay a fine.

Though long gone, the Phoebus cartel still casts a shadow today because it reduced competition in the light bulb industry for almost twenty years, and has been accused of preventing technological advances that would have produced longer-lasting light bulbs. Will history repeat itself as the lighting industry is now going through its most tumultuous period of technological change since the invention of the incandescent bulb?

"Consumers are expected to pay more money for bulbs that are up to 10 times as efficient and that are touted to last a fantastically long time—up to 50,000 hours in the case of LED lights. In normal usage, these lamps will last so long that their owners will probably sell the house they're in before having to change the bulbs," writes Krajewski.

"Whether or not these pricier bulbs will actually last that long is still an open question, and not one that the average consumer is likely to investigate." There are already reports of CFLs and LED lamps burning out long before their rated lifetimes are reached.

"Such incidents may well have resulted from nothing more sinister than careless manufacturing. But there is no denying that these far more technologically sophisticated products offer tempting opportunities for the inclusion of purposefully engineered life-shortening defects."" - The Great Lightbulb Conspiracy

09/27/14 - Homebrew Oil Testing Kit
KeelyNet Ever wish you could investigate pollution yourself? Public Lab's recently announced open source kit aims to make it possible for anyone to become a "pollution detective" by comparing samples of oil contamination. Under the hood, the kit is pretty interesting.

It uses the ultraviolet fluorescence caused by a Blu-Ray laser pen in oil samples, and includes a "papercraft" spectrometer to scan and classify oil types. The group's Kickstarter campaign is also seeking 50 early-access beta testers to help test and refine the kit before release.

The Public Lab Oil Testing Kit is based around our open source spectrometer (successfully Kickstarted in 2012), and uses an ultraviolet (Blu-Ray) laser to cause a fluorescent glow in diluted pollutant samples. We measure and graph the colors emitted and attempt to match this “signature” to that of known samples of oil.

Since our 2012 Kickstarter, we've improved and simplified our spectrometer design, integrating hundreds of refinements from a community of thousands of members. The new kit, though extremely precise, is constructed from pre-scored cardboard to keep costs low, and integrates a sampling chamber and light source. It is simple to assemble and includes all the parts you’ll need to begin doing your own oil analyses.

The kit itself includes supplies for collecting, preparing, and scanning samples, including sample jars and some olive oil as a safe test sample, since olive oil fluoresces similarly to crude oil residue. To support our work, you can also get a papercraft spectrometer -- the "heart" of the main kit but without sampling supplies or a laser. Turn your smartphone or webcam into a spectrometer using just this fold-up black paper design and a fragment of a DVD-R. - Homebrew Oil Testing Kit

09/27/14 - IBM Solar Concentrator Can Produce12kW/day, Clean Water, and AC
KeelyNet IBM Research and Switzerland-based Airlight Energy today announced a parabolic dish that increases the sun's radiation by 2,000 times while also producing fresh water and air conditioning. The new Concentrator PhotoVoltaics (CPV) system uses a dense array of water-cooled solar chips that can convert 80% of the sun's radiation into useful energy.

The CPV, which looks like a 33-foot-high sunflower, can generate 12 kilowatts of electrical power and 20 kilowatts of heat on a sunny day — enough to power several average homes, according to Bruno Michel, the project's lead scientists at IBM Research in Switzerland.

The dense array of multi-junction photovoltaic (PV) chips, mirrors and the electrical receiver are encased in a large inflated transparent plastic enclosure to protect the system from rain or hail.

The CPV system is not suitable for rooftop use, as it weighs about 10 tons and is 47 yards square; instead, systems could help power shopping malls or commercial centers, hotels and resorts. "You're creating a large shadow for cars at a mall, so you're combining two useful things in one," Michel said. "This would be ideal in remote locations where they have high energy costs, such as touristic islands."

A common flat panel photovoltaic solar system, like you might find on a rooftop, has a conversion efficiency rating of 15% to 20%. Typically, CPVs magnify the Sun's radiation about 500 times; the IBM/Airlight CPV system magnifies radiation 2,000 times to achieve an 80% efficiency rating.

Because the sun's rays are concentrated onto an array of PV chips, the array needs to be cooled to remain within operating temperatures. The water-filled radiator system that does that also creates hot water that can be used in other ways, such as space heating and air conditioning through an absorption chiller.

The hot water can then be used in an attached desalination system that creates drinkable water by passing itwater through a Gortex-like membrane. A 40-square meter CPV system could produce up to almost 350 gallons of water a day, according to Besozzi. - IBM Solar Concentrator Can Produce12kW/day, Clean Water, and AC

09/27/14 - DIY Automated Watering System pinches hose as Valve
KeelyNet Anyone could have bought an off-the-shelf solenoid valve, not [Valentin], he designed his own. It is simple and just pinches the water supply tube to stop the flow of water coming from the elevated 20-liter water container. The ‘pinching’ arm is raised and lowered by an RC Car servo.

When the valve is in the closed position, the servo does not need to continually apply pressure, the servo is powered down and the valve stays closed. This works because when the valve is closed, all forces are acting in a strictly radial direction on the servo’s drive disk. Since there is no rotation force, the drive disk does not rotate and the valve stays closed.

The servo is controlled by a microcontroller. Instead of rotating the servo to a certain degree, the servo rotates until it hits a limit switch. Those limit switches tell the microcontroller that the valve is either in the open or closed position.

You must be asking yourself ‘what happens if the limit switch fails and the servo wants to keep rotating?’ [Valentin] thought of that too and has his code measure how long it is taking to reach the limit switch. If that time takes too long, the servo is powered down. - DIY Automated Watering System pinches hose as Valve

Airbnb has revolutionised how people stay in new towns and cities, and now a startup is hoping to recreate this success when it comes to eating abroad. EatWith connects diners in 28 countries with hosts that are willing to cook for them, typically at cheaper rates than local restaurants.It was designed to help people enjoy local, home-cooked cuisine while travelling, and for enthusiastic chefs to cook for others, while making money.

There are more than 500 hosts across these locations, which include the UK, Australia, Canada, Russia, Turkey, Spain, Italy and Israel. All hosts are vetted, and guests are encouraged to rate hosts based on their cleanliness, food, and overall hospitality.

The site will soon launch a tool that equally lets hosts rate their guests. Once a host receives a certain number of reviews, they are given an EatWith Verified tag. This means they ‘meet with the EatWith standards of quality and safety and has been certified and recommended.’

Each host profile features posts photos of previous meals, as well as the cost of attending an event at their home, and the number of guests the house can accommodate. The profiles also reveal whether the home is child and pet friendly, allows smoking, has Wi-Fi, parking, and how long an event is likely to last.

There is additionally a short bio and photo of each host, and a map revealing the host's location. To book a meal, guests must register with the site and can then apply for an event. They can also request alternative dates from hosts.

Prices are either fixed, or some profiles suggest a minimum donation price people can pay for attending. The money is paid via the site, and not directly to the host, to make sure transactions are safe and secure. - Airbnb for MEALS: EatWith dinner with Strangers

09/24/14 - Speeding ions prove time dilation
KeelyNet A team of researchers working at the Experimental Storage Ring in Damstadt, Germany have conducted an experiment using ions pushed to 40 percent of the speed of light to verify time dilation to a new level of precision. In their paper published in Physical Review Letters, the team describes how their experiment was conducted and how it allowed them to validate the time dilation prediction to just a few parts per billion.

The experiment allowed for measuring the shift in laser frequencies relative to what the transition frequencies would be for ions that had not been accelerated. By combining the two frequency shifts, uncertainties could be eliminated making it possible to validate time dilation predictions to an order of precision much higher than previous limits. It also demonstrated that it's possible to improve time dilation measurement precision in a lab, which means that scientists no longer have to rely on celestial bodies, which tend to come along with assumptions that may or may not be based on actual facts.

Keely said 'Time is Gravity.' It's a lot simpler than how they describe it. Aether/zpe influx is what causes gravity, the flow of time and inertia. So where there is less aether/zpe influx, necessarily there is less gravity, slower time and less inertia. So by learning how to dim gravity we can learn to control and use all three effects. If you can see this, you should help support my project. - JWD - Speeding ions prove time dilation

09/24/14 - $20 Million for QMoGen Demonstration


The good people from the XPRIZE may put up $20 million USD to the first team that can produce ‘substantive energy generation’ from an ‘entirely new method’ twice in two weeks. This should be really easy for the 50 or more QMoGen devices claiming free energy.

Unlike what has been announced in other media this competition is not yet a reality. Winning the Visioneering Contest does not automatically qualify a topic for the XPRIZE competition. The sponsors and the board of the XPRIZE foundation will take the final decision for the XPRIZE – Which is yet to be announced.

XPRIZE board member Barry Thompson explains that today there is an ‘inquisition of scientific mindsets’ that is holding back breakthroughs in science. He mentions that scientists consider that energy sources like cold fusion, matter energy technologies, zero-point energy are possible, but that in reality no one can investigate it in academia because of blacklisting and a code of silence surrounding these unpopular topics.

There have been a myriad of other prizes for many years for demonstrations of free energy, anti gravity and perpetual motion. to date no one has ever claimed any prizes. - $20 Million for QMoGen Demonstration

09/24/14 - Would you take Kissinger's bet on where the world is heading?
In his new book, the former US secretary of state Henry Kissinger argues that "chaos threatens" the world order "side by side with unprecedented interdependence" between nations. He's right on target. The globalization of the world economy has proceeded alongside a host of threats that transcend borders: "the spread of weapons of mass destruction, the disintegration of states, the impact of environmental depredations, the persistence of genocidal practices, and the spread of new technologies." But even as the world's prosperity and problems become more intertwined, geopolitical conflict between traditional nation-states is on the rise.

The main driver for this growing volatility is a deteriorating US-led world order, what I call the 'G-Zero'--the notion that we are experiencing a widening global power vacuum that no nation or group of nations will fill for the foreseeable future. America is becoming less willing and able to influence outcomes, precisely at a time when international leadership is increasingly critical. America's exceptional ability to organize global institutions and the international agenda no longer holds--and there is no useful strategy to try and regain it. That underpins and links the geopolitical conflicts that feel ubiquitous today, from the South China Sea and Ukraine to Iraq and Syria.

Kissinger is dead right in describing the evolution of the world order and how it is unravelling today. His predictions for what comes next are the most likely of outcomes. But with far more geopolitical volatility on our horizon, I suspect we're all going to be hedging more than he'd like.

We clearly do not learn from history as you can see in the videos below. Lots of older folks say its not their problem, they'll be dead by the time it all crashes into chaos. And the believers claim Jayzus will rescue them all in the rapture so don't worry about it. The rest of us who do care don't seem to be enough to force the changes needed. So, history repeats itself... At least our Martian ancestors were forced to leave due to their planets' weakened magnetic field, in our case it's our own warlike, polluting behavior that will again destroy civilization with untold loss of life. And we still have only rockets to try to save some of us. - JWD - Would you take Kissinger's bet on where the world is heading?

09/24/14 - UPS Store Will 3-D Print Stuff For You
UPS announced plans Monday to bring in-store 3-D-printing services to nearly 100 stores across the country, billing itself as the first national retailer to do so.

With the UPS system, customers can submit their own designs for objects like product prototypes, engineering parts and architectural models that are then printed on a professional-quality 3-D printer made by Stratasys. Prices vary depending on the complexity of the object; an iPhone case would be about $60, while a replica femur bone would be around $325.

UPS can also connect customers with outside professionals who charge an hourly rate to help produce a design file for the printer.

It generally takes about four or five hours to print a simple object, with more complex items taking a day or more. The program started as a pilot at six locations last year, and UPS says those stores "saw demand for 3-D print continuing to increase across a broad spectrum of customers." - UPS Store Will 3-D Print Stuff For You

09/24/14 - Satellite flybys speed change confounds scientists
When space probes, such as Rosetta and Cassini, fly over certain planets and moons, in order to gain momentum and travel long distances, their speed changes slightly for an unknown reason. A researcher has now analyzed whether or not a hypothetical gravitomagnetic field could have an influence. However, other factors such as solar radiation, tides, or even relativistic effects or dark matter could be behind this mystery.

"These deviations do not seriously affect the trajectories of the spacecrafts, yet, although they are seemingly small amounts, it is very important to clarify what they are caused by, especially in the current era of precise space exploration," Luis Acedo Rodríguez, physicist at the Polytechnic University of Valencia, said.

Scientists have still not found any convincing explanation for the phenomenon, although they have put forward a range of hypotheses. One points towards solar radiation being the cause of the change in speed, whilst others suggest an influence from magnetic fields or the effect of tides, and there are also even unconventional theories, such as the existence of a halo of dark matter trapped by Earth's gravitational pull.

Acedo has proposed an explanation based on a supposed circulating gravitomagnetic field, which would follow Earth's parallels, an approach that can be used to explain the effects on the majority of flybys. "Einstein's general theory of relativity predicts the existence of a similar field, but in the case of meridians, with this strongly confirmed by experiments such as Gravity Probe B," the researcher comments, although he recognises significant limitations of the model.

"If a force field existed," he explains, "its effects would also be seen in the elliptical orbits of spacecrafts, and should have been detected a long time ago by geodynamic satellites such as LAGEOS or LARES; however, this is not the case, and it is therefore doubtful that a field of this kind could cast a light on this mystery without seriously changing our understanding of Earth's gravity."

With this possibility ruled out, the expert considers in a study published in the journal Advances in Space Research that the anomalous behaviour of the probes during their flybys "must originate in something that, although common, we have been unaware of to date, or in an error in the data analysis programs."

The difference in speeds could also have much more serious implications on the understanding of gravity, according to Acedo: "We already have evidence that shows a seemingly small anomaly in astronomical observations leading to new theoretical conceptions, such as the advance of Mercury's perihelion (closest point to the Sun), which was essential in the development of the theory on general relativity. For the case in question, and without ruling out an explanation by means of conventional sources, something similar could occur."

Meanwhile, space probes continue to challenge scientists every time they perform a flyby. One of the last was that of the spacecraft Juno in October 2013, from Earth en route to Jupiter. NASA has not yet published data on this journey, but everything indicates that its speed as it flew over our planet was once again different to estimates. - Satellite flybys speed change confounds scientists

09/24/14 - Why I Hope To Die At 75
KeelyNet Ezekiel J. Emanuel, director of the Clinical Bioethics Department at the US National Institutes of Health, writes at The Atlantic that there is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but is nonetheless deprived.

"It robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, the world. It transforms how people experience us, relate to us, and, most important, remember us. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic."

Emanuel says that he is isn't asking for more time than is likely nor foreshortening his life but is talking about the kind and amount of health care he will consent to after 75. "Once I have lived to 75, my approach to my health care will completely change. I won't actively end my life. But I won't try to prolong it, either."

Emanuel says that Americans seem to be obsessed with exercising, doing mental puzzles, consuming various juice and protein concoctions, sticking to strict diets, and popping vitamins and supplements, all in a valiant effort to cheat death and prolong life as long as possible.

"I reject this aspiration. I think this manic desperation to endlessly extend life is misguided and potentially destructive. For many reasons, 75 is a pretty good age to aim to stop."

I agree IF our only recourse is to suffer the effects of aging. But what if we can rejuvenate the body to a younger time which many are beginning to believe can be done...that we will one day have a cure for aging, which is rejuvenation. - JWD - Why I Hope To Die At 75

09/24/14 - "Big Bang Signal" Could All Be Dust
Scientists have shown that the swirl pattern touted as evidence of primordial gravitational waves — ripples in space and time dating to the universe's explosive birth — could instead all come from magnetically aligned dust.

A new analysis of data from the Planck space telescope has concluded that the tiny silicate and carbonate particles spewed into interstellar space by dying stars could account for as much as 100 percent of the signal detected by the BICEP2 telescope and announced to great fanfare this spring.

The Planck analysis is "relatively definitive in that we can't exclude that the entirety of our signal is from dust," said Brian Keating, an astrophysicist at the University of California, San Diego, and a member of the BICEP2 collaboration.

The new dust analysis leaves open the possibility that part of the BICEP2 signal comes from primordial gravitational waves, which are the long-sought fingerprints of a leading Big Bang theory called “inflation.” If the universe began with this brief period of exponential expansion, as the cosmologist Alan Guth proposed in 1980, then quantum-size ripples would have stretched into huge, permanent undulations in the fabric of the universe. These gravitational waves would have stamped a swirl pattern, called “B-mode” polarization, in the cosmic microwave background, the oldest light now detectable in the sky.

Inflation will remain the leading Big Bang theory even if the entire BICEP2 signal fades to dust, said Mark Trodden, a professor of physics at the University of Pennsylvania. It explains the smoothness and uniformity of the universe and gives a mechanism for structure formation, he explained — “but all this evidence is highly circumstantial.”

Confirmation of primordial gravitational waves would have locked the theory down, resolving once and for all the picture of the beginning of time. Now, “the jury is still out,” Keating said. - "Big Bang Signal" Could All Be Dust

or listen to the lyrics unless you TRULY believe in free speech.

"Today, institutions fundamental to the British system of Government are under attack: the public schools, the house of Lords, the Church of England, the holy institution of Marriage, even our magnificent police force are no longer safe from those who would undermine our society, and it's about time we said 'enough is enough' and saw a return to the traditional British values of discipline, obedience, morality and freedom."

I never heard this band before, but the beat of their music was so good, kind of a combination of Grand Funk Railroad and Three Dog Night with a touch of Sugarloaf, too bad the lyrics are more than politically incorrect. - JWD - Power in the Darkness
