Clacking is a noise like two metal plates slapping against each other, I guess as opposed to clanking where the plates would be very dense or heavy.
After lunch today, I laid down for a siesta. Had a rather sharp dream where I asked,;
I was standing in a room that was all black, with only me and the space around me lighted. About 20 seconds after I asked the question again, I heard a deep, booming voice say;
The light faded out and I woke up. So, like most dips having such a minor experience, it got me to thinking 'its a sign'...yeah, right, well something to think about. I have many files on inertial drives on Keely that deal with the topic of throwing weight in a preferred direction, then stopping it so the inertia of the mass causes the mass to jerk in that direction with a unidirectional force.
Mechanics are sloppy so it should be possible to use other forces such as gyroscopic thrust. All a matter of how heavy are the thrown weights and how far are they thrown before they are stopped to give the greatest distance. The 4th video is an example of 'clanking' from the Chompers scene in the hilarious movie 'Galaxy Quest.'
Help handing out Warren Buffett’s fortune
Each year, Buffett, the billionaire investor, receives thousands of letters from people asking whether he would pay their mortgages, medical bills, credit card debt, and more. Through a unique sibling partnership, Buffett forwards the letters to his older sister, Doris, who decides which ones to fund. Over the past decade, at least 22,000 letters have crossed their collective desks, and they have given away more than $12 million. And now, in what might be Boston’s most unusual volunteer opportunity, Doris Buffett — who moved to the city last fall — is looking for people in Greater Boston to help her read a backlog of those letters, as well as new batches that continually arrive.
“My brother is putting up the money, so we’re sort of limitless,” Buffett, 88, said in an interview with the Globe. “He’s told me that any time I run out of money, all I have to do is call him.” In recent years, Doris Buffett has had about a dozen volunteers helping her review letters in Fredericksburg, Va., where she previously lived, and Rockport, Maine, where she has a summer home. But that group has dwindled, so she wants to replenish its ranks with people from the Boston area. That proximity is important because Buffett wants volunteers who can meet with her regularly — she lives in the Back Bay — to discuss which funding requests are reasonable.
Her goal is to provide what she calls “life-changing” grants to people who, for reasons beyond their control, have fallen on hard financial times. A check from Doris Buffett is not akin to hitting the lottery; her gifts average about $4,800, although her largest to an individual was nearly $100,000. The intent is to stabilize people struggling with money woes. “Bad things happen to good people, and sometimes, even if you try everything and keep plugging away, it doesn’t work and you just have no options,” said Noni Campbell, one of Doris Buffett’s original volunteers. “When there’s rent or cancer bills that have to be paid, a thousand dollars when you’re in a very, very bad position in your life is like a million dollars.”
The Buffetts estimate they make at least 250 gifts each year totaling about $1.2 million, although some years the annual total has exceeded $2 million. The money is funneled through Doris Buffett’s Sunshine Lady Foundation, which she created with an inheritance in 1996 and which also receives funding requests from strangers. Warren Buffett transfers Berkshire Hathaway stock — now worth more than $221,000 for each class A share — to replenish the fund when it gets low.
Volunteers do background checks on letter writers, including research on their income, assets, and debts. They contact references, which grant applicants are required to supply. Sometimes, rather than provide money, the volunteers teach letter writers how to budget and connect them to government services or nonprofit groups that can lend assistance. They must also be on the alert for scam artists, such as people who write numerous letters from the same address using different names.
Life experience is also important, she said, because wisdom and perspective often come with age. For that reason, she usually chooses older volunteers, but Buffett said she would not rule out younger applicants because some young people are wise beyond their years.
Another requirement: In keeping with the homespun spirit of Buffett’s operation, applicants must apply by letter, not electronically.
Have a need, sent a letter to;
292 Newbury Street
Boston, MA 02115
For all letters, please include your name, birthdate, return mailing address and an email address. If writing for to ask for help, the more detail the better.
If writing to offer your services as a letter reader, be sure to include why you think you are good fit for the work.
Confirm Your Driver's License - After receiving your letter, we will send an email directing you to an ID authentication process. This includes taking a high-quality photo of the front and back of your government issued ID or driver's license on your smartphone.
The Secret of Straightening a Pig's Tail
Gary shows us how to sort out a pigs tail whilst at Vale Head farm... We visited Vale Head therapuetic farm for young people, Stourbridge, as part of a field trip for a university project, we were taught this harmless trick by our friend who was working on the farm and thought it would be a humorous little film. We are part of a group of aspiring farmers who are striving to set up a community owned farm, our vision and other info can be found on our website www.dragonflyland.coop.

Electrified sand, carbolic acid and concussions to encourage Rain
Perhaps one of the most ambitious attempts to produce rain was that of Prof. Wilber D. Bancroft, professor of physical chemistry at Cornell University, and L. Francis Warren, another scientist. Back in February, 1923, they tried to dispel clouds and fogs with electrically charged sand and at the same time they attempted to precipitate rain from massed vapor.
These two men obtained the co-operation of the Army Air Service and they carried on their experiments from airplanes over McCook Field, near Dayton, Ohio. They were hailed as pioneers and the end was envisioned of the London fog, as well as the fogs which endangered shipping on seaports of America and Europe. It was their plan to fly 400 to 500 feet over the clouds. The plane would discharge the electrified sand above the tops of the clouds, enlarging the drops, coalescing them or causing uncharged drops to evaporate, thereby compelling the larger drops to descend in rainfall. Mr. Warren maintained at the time that they actually dispelled clouds in ten minutes. However, in cases of drought where there were no clouds, the problem might be beyond their reach or control, they said.
A special apparatus had been attached to the airplane which could discharge 30,000 to 40,000 volts. The plane carried eighty pounds of sand of 150 mesh. It had a wind-driven generator and electric equipment capable of discharging sand charged either positively or negatively, according to the will of the operator. The plane went at 100 miles an hour over the specific cloud region. Little of rain-making value developed out of these experiments.
Still later, aviators tried to break a drought in Hongkong, China, by dropping powdered kaolin in the clouds, thereby hoping to precipitate rain. But their efforts were futile. During the latter part of the last century it was generally believed that fires might bring down rain. James Espy, a meteorologist of Pennsylvania, was the greatest exponent of this theory. But this idea also went up in thin air.
Other notions were that explosions and concussions could produce showers. But the World war, with all the heavy artillery explosions, and a couple of volcano eruptions have discredited the concussion theory for making rain-drops.
Back in 1891, a Chicagoan named Gathman shot a stream of carbolic acid 600 feet into the air. He maintained that clouds formed as a result and rain was subsequently produced. But then again, there is no positive record of his accomplishment. Besides, carbolic acid offers no allurements in this field for practical purposes.
In 1893, a Frenchman named Baudouin, was supposed to have caused rain by establishing an electrical contact with clouds through the medium of a kite. He said it worked twice in Algeria. By removing the kite he stopped the rain, he said. But that was so long ago no one remembers whether it did rain in Algeria on that particular day. But getting down to a constructive viewpoint, C. F. Marvin, chief of the United States Weather Bureau, has manifested a deep interest in all attempts to make rain. There is no disputing the fact that a successful machine would be priceless, that its inventor would go down not only as one of mankind’s greatest benefactors but also one of the most celebrated engineers.
So intrigued was the weather bureau at Washington that two officials were on hand during Dr. Sykes’ demonstration at Belmont Park. The field is open, they said. One of them expressed the opinion that many a cellar may harbor the discarded apparatus which might have served the purpose if only brought out into the open and developed. There is no limit to the possibilities of an apparatus which can do away with drought and the rain-check.
Science Still Seeks a Rain-Making Machine (Jan, 1931) - In 1893, a Frenchman named Baudouin, was supposed to have caused rain by establishing an electrical contact with clouds through the medium of a kite. He said it worked twice in Algeria. By removing the kite he stopped the rain, he said. But that was so long ago no one remembers whether it did rain in Algeria on that particular day.
How to not get yourself killed by Police doing their job
The big problem we are seeing is with how people react to police...so many times, they run, they try to fight or they reach in a pocket and wind up shot dead. Best way to keep out of trouble with the law is to keep your nose clean, have a basic knowledge of your rights & know how to act.
Save lives and share with your friends and family by sharing with them how they should act when dealing with police. The police are just like you and me, trying to do their job so they can return safely to their families and friends.
In my north Texas hometown of 6,000 people we all knew the police and their families and went to school with or hung out with their kids. They all looked after us like uncles and grandads and cut us some slack so we could learn. I will never, EVER forget the police who took care of all of us. You can bet if we got out of hand, they'd drive us home and let our parents know and thats when we got the real lesson.
It was not so much what we did, but the embarrassment and shame we brought to our family and friends that taught us the best. And it followed us to school so we learned not to do that again. Here is the essence of the list on how to respectfully deal with Police who are there to protect all of us; First and most important thing is to calm down and STFU. - http://newsone.com/3047218/johnny-law-and-you-10-simple-rules-for-police-encounters/
1.. Calm down
2. Keep your hands visible
3. Shut up
4. Have your ID handy
5. As if you are being detained
6. Do not consent to illegal searches
7. Do not resist or even give the impression that you will
8. Do not become 'super negro' or 'billy badass'
9. Tell your friends to follow the above rules as well
10. Use your eyes, ears and memory about what happens
Imagine what it would be like if we had no police to watch over our us, anarchy and chaos everywhere. So please respect and honor our police! - JWD
Johnny Law and You: 10 Simple Rules for Police Encounters - When I was a kid, “The Talk” meant something different. It meant a father telling his son or a mother telling a daughter about the birds and the bees, a necessary education that all parents should give their children about human sexuality when they reached a certain age. But now, “The Talk” has come to mean rules of survival for a Black boy in the mean streets, particularly when it comes to encounters with police. As we have seen within the last month, not every Black boy survives these encounters. Still, not every kid gets this education, or is clear on how to handle such an experience. So now is a good time to lay down some rules to use or tell your son or daughter when it comes to Mr. Johnny Law.

Data from the left-leaning polling firm shows that Trump leads Clinton by a margin of 50 percent to 44 percent in Texas. This is far from the landslide win for Mitt Romney in the 2012 election. Four years ago, Romney beat President Barack Obama 57.2 percent to 41.4 percent. According to the polling results from PPP, only one out of four Texans support seceding from America generally. But when faced with the possibility of a President Hillary Clinton, a majority of Trump supporters said they'd rather leave.
PPP is known for asking offbeat and sometimes humorous questions. In December, the firm discovered 30 percent - about one out of three - Republican primary voters supported bombing Agrabah, the fictional Arabian city from the Disney film Aladdin. The survey didn't ask if people knew Agrabah doesn't actually exist. PPP found Texans overall have an unfavorable opinion of both candidates (59 percent for Clinton and 53 percent for Trump).
When independents "candidates" Deez Nuts and Harambe (a gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo who was put down after grabbing a child) were included, Trump came out on top at 47 percent. Clinton got 38 percent while Deez Nuts got 3 percent and Harambe got 2 percent. As for President Obama, 54 percent of Texans polled said they disapprove of his job performance. In 2012, 51 percent of the Texans polled said they voted for Mitt Romney, compared to the 38 percent who voted for Obama (11 percent said they don't remember who they voted for).
Other interesting results from the survey include 30 percent of Texans identifying as moderate, compared to 13 percent identifying as somewhat liberal and 29 percent as somewhat conservative. A small number said they were very liberal (9 percent) or very conservative (19 percent). While most Texans identify as Republican (41 percent), 24 percent say they are independent while the remaining 35 percent identify as Democrat.
'Why not Texit?': Texas nationalists look to the Brexit vote for inspiration - Daniel Miller and others draw parallels with what they call Britain’s ill-suited relationship with Europe and frustration in Lone Star state with US government. “There are a lot of people asking, if Brexit why not Texit?” he says. “I do talk with some folks over there on a pretty regular basis that are involved in Ukip and the Conservative party.”
The night before we met, Miller addressed a local Tea Party group, drawing parallels between Brexit and Texit, which the TNM is pushing as a hashtag. In Miller’s telling, Britain’s relationship with Europe was a marriage of convenience between ill-suited partners that has become stormy and ripe for divorce on grounds of irreconcilable differences, with too much sovereignty ceded to an ineffective central bureaucracy and too much hard-earned money sent elsewhere.
The current body calling itself the Republic of Texas believes that Texas never actually ceded its sovereignty to the United States when it joined the union (some prefer the term annexed) in 1845. “The great deception can be undone – stay tuned,” their website states. They run a parallel system of government, with Republic of Texas identity cards and coins.
The TNM, meanwhile, seeks secession through political avenues and calls for the people of Texas to decide via a referendum. Miller claims that the group has 260,000 supporters. It has fans in Russia among mischief-makers who would relish the break-up of the United States. It also has advocates in the Texas Republican party, even though removing one of the biggest and most reliably red states from the US would make it far easier for the Democrats to win presidential elections. What would the country of Texas be like? “I don’t think we’ll have checkpoints at the border with Louisiana,” Miller deadpans. “Trump may have to move his wall a little further north.”
Poll: Three out of five Texans who support Trump want secession if Hillary becomes president
Check out these underwater 'jet boots' used by Navy SEALs
Officially called the Jetboots Diver Propulsion System, it’s essentially a pair of small thrusters that attach to a diver’s leg, allowing for hands-free movement underwater. Developed by Patriot3 for military use, the Jetboots weigh roughly 25 pounds, are easily stowed in a ruck, and the batteries can be swapped out underwater. Using the Jetboots is pretty straightforward: Strap the thrusters on and you can move quickly through the water with minimal effort. Even changing direction is easy — all you have to do is move your head or torso. It also lets you pull off cool backflips underwater while you talk with fish.

Resonant Frequencies and the Cure for Cancer
“It is observed that both biological effects and epidemiological effects appear to be the same or very similar from ELF exposure and from RF/MW exposures, including calcium ion efflux, melatonin reduction, DNA strand breakage, chromosome aberrations, leukaemia, brain cancer, breast cancer, miscarriage and neurological effects.”
“A frequently used method for falsely dismissing evidence of effects is to consider effects in small frequency and intensity bands. In fact, biophysics shows that the dielectric constant decreases monotonically with carrier frequency across the EMR spectrum, Schwan (1985). Vignati and Giuliani (1997) show that for a unit field exposure, the induced current increases significantly as a function of frequency.”
“Calcium ions were induced to flow out of or into cells, depending of the combination of exposure conditions. These combinations are known as “windows” because nearby conditions have markedly different effects. Figure 7 shows RF induced Ca2+ efflux which is associated with enhanced programmed cell death (Apoptosis). The ELF induced and Ca2+ influx is associated with enhanced cell survival of damaged cells, i.e. it enhances cancer.”
“In the past century, there have been many attempts to treat cancer with low levels of electric and magnetic fields. We have developed noninvasive biofeedback examination devices and techniques and discovered that patients with the same tumor type exhibit biofeedback responses to the same, precise frequencies. Intrabuccal administration of 27.12 MHz radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (EMF), which are amplitude-modulated at tumor-specific frequencies, results in long-term objective responses in patients with cancer and is not associated with any significant adverse effects. Intrabuccal administration allows for therapeutic delivery of very low and safe levels of EMF throughout the body as exemplified by responses observed in the femur, liver, adrenal glands, and lungs.”
“In vitro studies have demonstrated that tumor-specific frequencies identified in patients with various forms of cancer are capable of blocking the growth of tumor cells in a tissue- and tumor-specific fashion. Current experimental evidence suggests that tumor-specific modulation frequencies regulate the expression of genes involved in migration and invasion and disrupt the mitotic spindle. This novel targeted treatment approach is emerging as an appealing therapeutic option for patients with advanced cancer given its excellent tolerability. ” “Dissection of the molecular mechanisms accounting for the anti-cancer effects of tumor-specific modulation frequencies is likely to lead to the discovery of novel pathways in cancer.”
Resonant Frequencies and the Cure for Cancer
North American auto OEMs and their tier 2 suppliers have been in a race to move auto production across borders to low-cost countries (LCCs) for the past couple of decades as soaring wages, pension and OPEB obligations made production in the U.S. all but impossible. Supporters of minimum wage hikes could learn from the efforts of the United Auto Workers Union which did a masterful job negotiating off-market wage and benefits packages which ultimately only served to provide their members with permanent job losses.
Of course, the groundwork for the shift of auto production to Mexico was laid with the passage of NAFTA in 1993 by former President Bill Clinton (a fairly inconvenient fact that Hillary would prefer to forget). Since then, Mexico has been a huge beneficiary of automotive plant relocations with offsetting closures coming from the U.S. and Canada. A chart from the Wall Street Journal, perfectly illustrates the transition of production capacity to our southern neighbor.
And now, with Detroit unemployment still over 10% (in spite of Obama's stellar jobs "recovery"), newly constructed auto plants in Mexico have only 1 problem, they can't find enough labor. Per the Wall Street Journal, soaring auto demand (or if you're as cynical as we are, soaring demand for subprime paper backed by loans on brand new $70,000 Escalades made to people with a 550 credit score) and substantial new auto manufacturing capacity in Mexico has resulted in a bit of a labor crisis. To attract workers, OEMs are being forced to pay over 300% more than minimum wage and provide incentives like retention bonuses and "new cowboy boots." Another lesson for minimum wage supporters...labor markets work...when labor demand exceeds supply then wages rise. Unfortunately, the opposite is also true as low-skilled American workers are acutely aware.
Ford is scheduled to open a new $1.6 billion small-car assembly factory in San Luis Potosí in 2018 and hire 2,800 workers. People familiar with the matter say Ford will produce its Focus there, which is currently built in Michigan.
A contract reviewed by The Wall Street Journal puts factory wages at the facility at about $1.15 to $2.30 per hour, on par with what other auto-assembly plants currently pay in the region. The move to Mexico will yield cost savings of about $1,300 per vehicle, or about $300 million a year, according to manufacturing experts familiar with the Detroit car maker's finances.
