07/31/14 - Fashion mogul's ageing process 'reversed'
KeelyNet Bahamas billionaire Peter Nygard has appeared in a documentary, claiming to be on the breakthrough of reversing ageing using stem cell research.

The fashion mogul has invested millions in research in stem cell therapy and has been lobbying politicians to pass new legislation about it in the Bahamas.

"I started stem cells when I wanted to find a cure for my mother who I loved very much and western medicine was not able to cure her, and if I had discovered stem cells a year before, I think that she would still be here with me," he told the Freeport News.

KeelyNet He is now building a stem cell research facility in the Bahamas. Bahamas Stem Cell Laws - The Peter Nygard Breakthrough. For those who keep asking where the video of Nygard and his influence on Stem Cell Legislation in the Bahamas.

He has risked everything, his fortune, his reputation, even his own body. He receives 400,000,000 of his own embryonic stem cells in each treatment.

Peter says he has been on stem cell therapy four times a year over the past three years. The treatments have not simply stopped the aging process, they are reversing the effects of aging.

As much as I have confidence in stem cells, in this case, I suspect there are also changes in diet and exercise regimen along with a touch of makeup for photo-ops to 'enhance' the youthing effects.

There are several other approaches to regeneration and rejuvenation as described at Everything that Follows - JWD - Fashion mogul's ageing process 'reversed'

07/31/14 - Lake Mead Before and After the Epic Drought
KeelyNet A new study shows the Colorado River basin is losing water at a “shocking” rate.

Using a satellite designed to track changes in groundwater, the research team found that the Colorado River basin—which supplies water to 40 million people in seven states—lost 15.6 cubic miles of freshwater in the last 10 years.

More than 75 percent of that loss came due to excessive groundwater pumping. It’s the first study to quantify just how big a role the overuse of groundwater plays in dwindling water resources out West.


The above map shows the striking impact of long-term drought in the fastest growing part of the United States. From Texas to California, the new research backs increasingly pressing efforts to limit groundwater pumping and renegotiate water rights in an era of global warming.

"We don't know exactly how much groundwater we have left, so we don't know when we're going to run out," said Stephanie Castle of UCI, the study's lead author, in a press release. "This is a lot of water to lose. We thought that the picture could be pretty bad, but this was shocking."

Nowhere is the drop in the Colorado River more apparent than in the Hoover Dam’s Lake Mead. Earlier this month, Lake Mead set a new all-time record low. To memorialize the event, photographer Ethan Miller set out to take a series of “after” photos to complement pictures he took in July 2007. When you compare the two sets, the result is nothing short of stunning.

In the last seven years, Lake Mead’s dwindling has accelerated. The lake is now just barely more than 1,080 feet above sea level, slightly below its previous record low set in November 2010. The before images were taken when the lake level was 1,111 feet above sea level. Lake Mead hasn’t been officially full—1,221 feet above sea level—since 1983. The lake encompasses over 158,000 acres of land. - Lake Mead Before and After the Epic Drought

07/31/14 - The Rise and Fall of Las Vegas
KeelyNet If the Colorado Basin and Lake Mead continue to be drained of their water...a cause and effect situation will ensue and produce dire consequences for not just Las Vegas but the entire region.

No water + no electricity = Ghost Town

Will the people of Las Vegas go calmly into the night, sitting by, hoping the government will miraculously fix this problem? Or will they join forces to try rainmaking technology, used on a regular basis, along the Colorado Basin and over the Lake Mead region to restore the water levels being sucked lower everyday?

Will the USA declare this area an eco emergency and try to bail them out by bringing in water and generators or leave them to their own devices...stay in misery and try to protect your investments and city, or move WHERE THE FOOD IS (and water and electricity)...see below. Or chip in and do something to try to restore consistent water to this region. The Aussie wanted $40,000, then $2000 an acre ($317,000,000), then $200 an acre ($31,700,000), then 500 million. That's outrageous and there are other options. - email JWD. - The Rise and Fall of Las Vegas

07/31/14 - Powerful new patent service shows every US invention
The website for the U.S. Patent Office website is famously clunky: searching and sorting patents can feel like playing an old Atari game, rather than watching innovation at work. But now a young inventor has come along with a tool to build a better patent office.

The service is called Trea, and was launched by Max Yuan, an engineer who received a patent of his own for a bike motor in 2007. After writing a tool to download patents related to his own invention, he expanded the process to slurp every patent and image in the USPTO database, and compile the information in a user-friendly interface.

Trea has been in beta for a while, but will formally launch on Wednesday. The tool not only provides an easy way to see what inventions a company or inventor is patenting, but also shows the fields in which they are most active.

The Trea database also probes the USPTO for new filings, and can send alerts to subscribers. Yuan has also created a Twitter account just for new Apple filings. Trea also draws on the patent database to display what Yuan calls a “unified knowledge graph” of relationships between inventors.

Trea’s business model will charge a fee for alerts and analytics tools. Others parts of Trea, which is backed in part by Nathan Richardson, a former executive at Yahoo and AOL, will remain free.

The free tools will include a “notary feature,” which allows inventors to secretly submit diagrams and ideas, and receive a time-stamp of when they did so. The feature does not require the inventor to disclose the content of the idea, but is instead a cryptographic tool — in order to “unlock” the notarized submission, the inventor must provide the same digital document to authenticate that they were the one who submitted it in the first place.

Yuan said that the notary feature can be used for “defensive patenting,” meaning someone facing a patent lawsuit could defeat the claim by showing the notarized documents as evidence they had come up with the idea independently. He added that this tool could also be a way for news outlets and the broader internet community to verify the provenance of documents and web pages. - Powerful new patent service shows every US invention

07/31/14 - 'One bubble in a frothy sea of bubbles'
Series of experiments could shed new light on the 'multiverse'. Theory claims ours is just one universe among many. Researchers hope it will be a proof of principle and show the multiverse can be tested.

The term ‘multiverse’ was invented in December 1960, by Andy Nimmo, then vice chairman of the British Interplanetary Society. It is based on the theory of eternal inflation, which suggests that shortly after the Big Bang that formed the universe, space-time expanded at different rates in different places.

According to eternal inflation theory, this gave rise to bubble universes that may function with their own separate laws of physics. The idea of other universes out there may seem strange, but scientists say it can help solve some problems of fundamental physics.

For instance, the long-standing mystery of why nature appears to be fine-tuned for the emergence of life can be explained by the picture of a multiverse. Some scientists argue that intelligent observers exist only in those rare areas in which the conditions happen to be just right for life to evolve. The rest of the multiverse remains barren, but no one is there to notice it.

Researchers at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Canada say the theory of multiple universes stems from the idea of there being a vacuum in the beginning of time. 'The vacuum simmered with energy (variously called dark energy, vacuum energy, the inflation field, or the Higgs field).

'Like water in a pot, this high energy began to evaporate – bubbles formed,' they explain. Each bubble contained another vacuum, whose energy was lower, but still not nothing. This energy drove the bubbles to expand.

Inevitably, some bubbles bumped into each other. It’s possible some produced secondary bubbles. Each of these bubbles was a universe.

'In this picture, our universe is one bubble in a frothy sea of bubble universes,' the team say. The theory arises from the idea of cosmic inflation, that the universe expanded very far very fast after the Big Bang. While this is the most widely accepted theory of universe formation, it has never been proved - something the researchers believe they could change. - 'One bubble in a frothy sea of bubbles'

07/31/14 - Rising levels of water vapour high in Earth's atmosphere


Water high above the Earth: The map reveals water vapor in the upper atmosphere - which researchers say could intensify global warming. Purple = dry and Red = moist.

Increasing amounts of water in the upper troposphere are a direct result of human activity. Moistening of the atmosphere absorbs more heat and raises temperature.

Computer simulations predict that as burning fossil fuels warms the climate, concentrations of water vapour will rise. The moistening of the atmosphere in turn absorbs more heat and raises the Earth’s temperature further.

The troposphere is the lowest major atmospheric layer, extending from the Earth's surface up to the bottom of the stratosphere. The troposphere is where all of Earth's weather occurs. It contains approximately 80% of the total mass of the atmosphere.

The boundary between the troposphere and the stratosphere is called the 'tropopause', and is located at an altitude of around 5 miles in the winter, to around 8 miles high in the summer, and as high as 11 or 12 miles in the deep tropics.

Lead scientist Professor Brian Soden, from the University of Miami, US, said: 'The study is the first to confirm that human activities have increased water vapour in the upper troposphere.' - Rising levels of water vapour high in Earth's atmosphere

07/31/14 - SpaceX says it will be most used transport company by 2100
Comments came from president, Gwynne Shotwell, in a radio interview. She said California-based firm will make the human race ‘multiplanetary’. Within the next ten years, the company hopes to send people to Mars. SpaceX recently released a video of its Falcon 9 rocket making a soft ocean splashdown, describing the reusability test as a success.

Ms Shotwell added that she wants to do the same thing for space travel that planes are currently doing for air travel by creating ‘rapid and reusable’ rockets.

The comments follow owner Elon Musk’s announcement that SpaceX is making ‘progress’ towards establishing a colony on the red planet by 2020 with tickets to cost $500,000 (£296,900). Musk has previously said he created SpaceX for the sole reason of developing rocket technology to get people to Mars.

I'd love to pop their little egotistical bubble by helping to develop gravity control and start an entirely new space company. They don't have a clue with their primitive rockets. - JWD - SpaceX says it will be most used transport company by 2100

07/27/14 - John Weston’s Air/Vapor Flow System, AVFS
KeelyNet The photos show the vapor system installed on a car, an emergency power generator, a lawnmower and a motorcycle. His car got 463 MPG and ran on fumes. John Weston claims his 1992 Geo Storm GSI, which is equipped with his invention dubbed the Air Vapor Flow System, can run 14 miles on 4 ounces of fuel, which means it runs with extreme fuel efficiency at more than 400 miles per gallon.

Weston, 48, who dropped out of high school as a 10th-grader but later achieved a GED, claims to have invented a device that can turn virtually any car into a gas-miser that can run as far as 500 miles on a single gallon.

John Weston’s 1992 Geo Storm: “Since I changed the fuel system unit, it’s drastically different. I disconnected the fuel line from the injector so no liquid goes to the engine,” said Weston. Weston showed NBC-2 a version of his air vapor flow system where instead of liquid fuel, only vapors go to the engine. [ "run your car on vapors" ]

“They used to say, ‘Hey I’m running on empty. I’m running on fumes.’ Well, this is actually running on fumes,” he said. Weston says the system burns cleaner and also made a bold claim about fuel efficiency from a one-time test. “It came up to 463 miles a gallon if we had driven in the same manner – a gallon,” said Weston. “I drove from here to Fort Myers, and I’m up there keeping up with traffic running 80 mph. ”

Now, the backyard mechanic is looking for investors so he can eventually take his invention public. In the meantime, he says you might see his car on the highway.” He also put his vaporizer on a generator, a riding lawnmower, and his motorcycle. which are all so much more “fuel efficient” now.

Called the Air Vapor Flow System, or AVFS, the device functions by vaporizing gasoline before it gets inducted into the engine. That saves fuel and reduces pollution because it allows the engine to burn more of the fuel that gets sucked into the combustion chamber, he contends. The device works on small, industrial engines or larger automobile engines regardless of whether they have carburetors or fuel injection systems, according to Weston.

The device consists of a small, plastic tank that gets mounted under the hood of a car. Some hoses from the engine’s air intake housing are run to the top of the tank so that the engine draws in vapors from above the level of the liquid gasoline.

In an impromptu demonstration conducted for this reporter last week, Weston installed one of the devices into his battered 1992 Geo Storm. Weston’s car ran well on the vapors from the device when the level of the liquid in the tank was within a certain margin. The engine ran either too rich or too lean when the level was above or below that margin. The car traveled 14.8 miles on about 4 ounces of gasoline during the test. If accurate, that would amount to about 473 miles per gallon.

Weston’s neighbor, retired construction contractor William “Pops” Gavel, said he witnessed an even more dramatic experiment conducted by Weston. Gavel said he rode as passenger in Weston’s car for 28.7 miles — from Weston’s house to a location in Englewood — on just 4 ounces of Coleman camping fuel, or white gas. If accurate, that rate would be equivalent to 918 miles per gallon. Gavel said he watched Weston pour the 4 ounces into the tank and checked the mileage on the odometer himself.

“I couldn’t believe it,” said Gavel. “I said, ‘Wire me up!’ I’ve got a Ford V-8 whacking down a gallon every 17 miles and I thought, gee, I could drive all day with that kind of mileage.”

To operate the engine, once the fuel level dropped below its optimal margin, Weston briefly triggered a home-made switch 15 times. That pumped in additional fuel from his car’s regular fuel tank. The switch was made from a lamp cord. It was triggered by pushing the two prongs of the plug together for a split second.

After the test, Weston estimated the amount of gasoline consumed by measuring the amount of gasoline that was added from his car’s regular fuel tank. To do that, he again triggered the homemade switch 15 times, this time pumping fuel into a measuring cup. The fuel measured 4 ounces.

“Right now, it’s looking like a Mickey-Mouse backyard setup, but regardless of the way it looks, it functions,” he said.

Weston recently tested one of his AVFS tanks on a gasoline-powered utility generator. Without the device, the generator ran for 3.5 hours. With the device, it ran for 14 hours on the same amount of fuel, he said. [a 400% improvement] - John Weston’s Air/Vapor Flow System, AVFS

07/27/14 - Sandbag Kid
This kid invented a way to make smaller, lighter sandbags that absorb water as well as 40 pound sandbags. It appears to be a very useful invention, however there are questions.

Commenter #1; "How much do the bags cost to create though? I'd expect the polymer costs more than the bag to make, how do you dispose of the polymer afterwards? Does the polymer leach out into the water creating a potential ecological disaster?"

Commenter #2; " they didnt say how much the bag weights when the salt and polymer are soaked up. if they weigh the same, the 4 pounds bag is much better, since the biggest problems with the sandbags IS their heavy weight, making it hard to get them into place without alot of manpower." - Sandbag Kid

07/27/14 - Modification of Inertia
KeelyNet MiHsC (Modified Inertia due to a Hubble-scale Casimir effect) assumes that inertia is due to Unruh radiation (which objects are predicted to see only when they accelerate, akin to Hawking radiation) and that this radiation is subject to a Hubble-scale Casimir effect.

In the first paper I suggested that the Unruh waves seen by an object may be bent around it using metamaterials, reducing its inertial mass. This idea can be thought of as 1) bending the Unruh waves around the object to make them less effective in imparting inertia to it, and thereby reducing its inertial mass, or 2) bending the local Unruh radiation to change the Hubble-scale Casimir effect into a more local Casimir effect, which would 'damp' the Unruh waves and reduce inertia.

One problem with Unruh radiation is that for normal accelerations (9.8 m/s^2) their wavelengths are ridiculously long (7x10^16 m) so they are beyond our technology. However, for extremely high accelerations the waves become shorter. In the second paper listed below (also in section 4 of it) I suggested that a particle accelerator, like CERN, could be used to accelerate particles so much that the Unruh waves they see are short enough to be 'interfered with' by manmade electromagnetic waves (Unruh waves include em waves). Someone then emailed me to point out that NEMS (Nano-Electro Mechanical Systems) also produce very high accelerations..

Both suggestions are speculative and incomplete as yet, but I think it's important that I do my best, and have the courage, to suggest ways that MiHsC can be tested, and applied. Proposing experiments can also strengthen the link between the theory and nature, and helps keep the theorising on a useful, testable, course. - Modification of Inertia

07/27/14 - Western US States Using Up Ground Water At an Alarming Rate
KeelyNet A new study shows that ground water in the Colorado basin is being depleted six times faster than surface water. The groundwater losses, which take thousands of years to be recharged naturally, point to the unsustainability of exploding population centers and water-intensive agriculture in the basin, which includes most of Arizona and parts of Colorado, California, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, and Wyoming. Because ground water feeds many of the streams and rivers in the area, more of them will run dry.

In the 9 years from December 2004 to November 2013, ground water was lost at a rate of 5.6 cubic kilometers a year, the team reports online today in Geophysical Research Letters. That’s compared with a decline of 0.9 cubic kilometers per year from Lake Powell and Lake Mead, which contain 85% of the surface water in the basin.

Famiglietti says it makes sense that cities and farmers turn from surface water to ground water during drought. But he is surprised by the magnitude of the loss. The groundwater depletion rate is twice that in California’s Central Valley, another place famous for heavy groundwater use.

Regulation and monitoring of groundwater extraction are rare. The basin’s surface water is apportioned precisely under the Colorado River Compact, a 1922 agreement among seven states. In contrast, groundwater extraction is often the local right of the landowner. “If you own the property, you can drill a well and pump as much as you want,” Famiglietti says. “That’s just the way it is.” - Western US States Using Up Ground Water At an Alarming Rate

07/27/14 - Wells Rainmaker and Hurricane Control
KeelyNet In the late 1990s, David Wells developed a modified Newman Motor that allegedly produced profound effects upon the weather, his health, and fauna and flora. The Newman Motor is controversial enough without adding claims of weather control and biology effects to the topic, but I can personally attest to its power over weather since I had the opportunity to test one of Wells’ machines for a few months in 1998. I also have experimented with Dr Wilhelm Reich’s "Cloudbuster" (with enhancements: double helix coil, Leyden jar electrostatic charge, etc.) to my satisfaction. Therefore I can assure you that this puissance is penultimately dangerous, and thus a must-have item in the arsenal of every self-disrespecting megalomaniac, whether neo-imperialist American or post-imperialist foreign heathen.

"Clouds would appear straight between the machine and the sun. It appeared that the machine was doing something to the sky. To my knowledge we have nothing that does this. The effect was weak and the weather could overpower the machine and close the hole on some days. "One day I was observing the cloud formation above the shop and I noticed lines in the clouds that were lined up with the rotor. I moved the machine a few degrees and the lines shifted to the new direction.

"A few days later it was very calm and partly cloudy. The clouds were moving slowly eastward. I turned the machine 90 degrees and then clouds shifted direction to the north. They could be made to travel in any direction by rotating the machine. This proved it. The machine was definitely affecting the sky. "I began to watch the weather to see if I could see the hole in the sky on the satellite image. On some days it was very obvious.

"I blew a nice big hole in the sky one day and called the local weather station to see if they could see it. They came right down to see the machine. Kevin Skarupa said it was very interesting. I decided not to release anything public about it at that time. I wanted more time to study what was happening. "Thus began a long series of tests to determine the effects of the device on the weather. The original idea of getting free energy was abandoned. In fact the machine was reset to use the maximum possible power from the battery as it was found that this mode has the greatest effect on the weather.

In the ensuing years, Wells says that "thousands" of weather modifications have been made by the various machines. He says the cause-effect relationships has become fairly well established. Wells does not give out the plans for how to build these devices, but to give you an idea of their simplicity, the parts for the machines cost less than $200, and can be built and assembled in an afternoon. The machine operates on a 12-volt battery, drawing just a few milli-amps.

How it Works: The device appears to work similar to the cloudbuster technology. It appears to involve a 20-mile wavelength. The wavelengths set up interference patterns with the earth's natural wavelengths. The peaks and valleys of those interference patterns determine what kind of weather appears.

Applications: Steer tropical storms and hurricanes away from populated centers; Prevent tornado formation; Stop droughts; Put out forest fires; Turn Nebraska into a agricultural giant; Sunny weather for social events.

Anomalies: The machine appears to effect the speed of light, as shown by the movement of a laser beam on the wall, and the displacement of GPS readings.

A new force is described that can allegedly be felt by around 40% of people who try it, involving being able to feel a bead of heat-like sensation between a lit candle and Sedona Arizona; can be felt as far as 20-40 feet away from the flame. This same sensation can be felt between the machine and Sedona. - Wells Rainmaker and Hurricane Control

07/27/14 - $400 Razor Crazy Cart drift machine
It's an electric go-cart that's built for flat, smooth surfaces. It can zip you around at speeds of up to 12 miles per hour, and with practice, you can pull a lever to slide out the tail, making you drift like a miniaturized Ken Block. It's made for kids ages nine and up, or parents whose kids don't mind sharing.

Why Does It Matter? - You can drift. You can drift. With a standard wheel system it's all but impossible to drift on an under-powered system like this. You can't stomp the accelerator and spin your tires in place. This simple (patented) lever allows you to control how aggressive your slide is, which lets you teeter on that heart-pumping line between in and out of control.

Crazy Cart clocks in at 55 pounds. It's a bruiser, but for good reason; the solid steel frame makes the Crazy Cart strong enough to withstand many, many crashes with stationary objects without so much as a ding. You sit in a plastic seat with a belt that's too small for adults. There's an on/off switch on the side, and an additional safety button just under the hard metal steering wheel, so you don't accidentally take off like a rocket while you're trying to get situated. It also has a 24 volt (two 12V) sealed lead acid rechargeable battery system. You can't remove the battery, at least not easily, but you can just plug the cart directly into a wall outlet.

The steering wheel itself works differently from the wheel on your car, in that it's connected 1:1 with the wheel below it. When its arrow is pointed to the right, that's where you'll go. If it's pointed backwards, that's reverse. You've got a variable-speed foot pedal to precisely control how fast you're going. And the best part? There are no brakes, so you just have to take your foot off the gas in time and let the motor's resistance slow you down.

More about the drifting, since that's why we're all here. On the bottom of the kart you have one thick, rubber, inflatable drive-wheel, directly connected to the steering wheel. This is also where the motor is. Up on the front corners of the car are two small caster-wheels, but most of the time they don't even touch the ground; they're there to help keep you from eating it on sharp turns. In the back are two more coaster-wheels connected to the Drift Bar. This is where the magic happens.

When you're driving normally (with the Drift Bar down), the rear wheels are angled backwards about 45 degrees. This creates more pressure on their fronts, which makes them track normally, just like the rear wheels in most standard cars. When you pull up the Drift Bar, though, the wheels tilt so that they are perpendicular to the ground, which means that they can slide in any direction, just like your office chair. It's so incredibly simple, and it works so wonderfully well. Total stroke of genius. - $400 Razor Crazy Cart drift machine

07/27/14 - Bunch O Balloons fills water bombs in bulk
Each Bunch O Balloons connects directly to the end of a hosepipe. The water flows down the tubes into each individual balloon, simultaneously filling them all with water. The balloons are already tied, so when they're full you simply shake them out to seal them ready for throwing. Each Bunch O Balloons contains 37 balloons, with the inventor, Josh Malone, claiming this means it's possible to fill 100 every minute.

The balloons are only suitable for using once, but as they're made from natural rubber, plus an additive that accelerates the rotting process, they're considered biodegradable. The leftover stems are made from polypropylene plastic meaning they can easily be recycled.

Bunch O Balloons is currently raising funds through Kickstarter to purchase manufacturing equipment. Backers can pledge US$15 for 100 balloons, with higher pledges being rewarded with more balloons plus a slingshot-style water bomb launcher. The campaign has already smashed through the $10,000 funding goal and, if all goes to plan, delivery to water bombers is expected to start in April 2015. - Bunch O Balloons fills water bombs in bulk

This means that the amount of gravitational potential energy stored in a mass at the top of a hill only depends on how high the hill is, not on how the mass got there. In this conservative field, the potential energy depends only on the height. How does one use gravitational energy in a machine?? One example is a waterfall.

Here the potential energy of the water is converted into kinetic energy as it falls, and the kinetic energy is used to drive a turbine. In a conservative field energy is conserved. What does this mean?? If you first raised the water to the top of the falls, and then let it fall down to operate your turbine, the amount of energy you got out (in the ideal case of 100% efficiency) would equal the energy you put in.

The electromagnetic field is a conservative field also, with its rules. All the devices we make are constrained to follow these rules. The vacuum energy might be seen as analogous to the gravitational potential energy. The question is now how can we take advantage of the energy in the vacuum fluctuations in a useful way? In the conservative gravitation field, just raising a ball to the top of a hill and letting it fall down is not very useful. This might correspond to a vacuum energy battery, in which we have some charged plates that, when released, move toward each other due to the Casimir force, converting electrical energy into work or kinetic energy.

When the plates are as close as they get, the power has all been extracted. To restore the battery to its original state would require the at least the same amount of power to be applied to separate the plates. We get out of this reversible battery only what we put into it (this idea of a ZP fluctuation battery is discussed by Robert L. Forward in Phys Rev. B, 30, p. 1700-1702, 1982).

The question is, can we build or find something, for example, analogous to a waterfall, or at least waves, that has a region with a high vacuum energy density and a region with a low vacuum energy density, and make something useful from this difference in vacuum energy? Or perhaps we need additional thermodynamic variables such as discussed by F. Pinto (Engine cycle of an optically controlled vacuum energy transducer, Physical Review B, volume 60, pages 14740-14755, December, 1999).

We cannot get something for nothing—this would violate the conservation of energy and the second law of thermodynamics. But maybe we can find a convenient way to pay for the vacuum energy and thereby use it profitably.

Perhaps, we need to look for wholly new types of devices and structures that are based on the unique properties of vacuum energy. That is the purpose of our present effort in the Breakthrough Propulsion program, to explore this new terrain of vacuum energy, and make a map we can use to get somewhere of interest.

07/24/14 - Theorists propose way to amplify force of vacuum fluctuations
KeelyNet Vacuum fluctuations may be among the most counter-intuitive phenomena of quantum physics. Theorists have now proposed a way to amplify their force. The researchers believe that their proposed enhancement of the power of vacuum fluctuations can have profound implications for understanding Casimir and Van der Waals forces and it may even be used for applications in quantum information processing and other emerging quantum technologies.

Two atoms close to each other will also change the local vacuum around them. If one of them emits a virtual photon, which is almost instantly absorbed by the other, then on any timescale larger than the brief moment of the photon's existence, nothing much has happened -- the total energy is conserved. But the fact that virtual particles can be exchanged modifies the vacuum around the atoms, and this leads to a force.

"Usually, such forces are very hard to measure," says Igor Mazets. "This is partly due to the fact, that such a photon may be emitted into any direction, and the chances of the second atom absorbing it are very small."

But what if the virtual particle has a little help to find its way? Ephraim Shahmoon, Gershon Kurizki (Weizmann Institute of Science) and Igor Mazets calculated what happens to vacuum forces between atoms when they are placed in the vicinity of an electrical transmission line such as a coaxial cable or a coplanar waveguide (a device used in cavity quantum electrodynamics experiments as an open transmission line), cooled to very low temperatures. "In that case, the fluctuations are effectively confined to one dimension," says Igor Mazets. The virtual particles will be forced to go into the direction of the other atom.

In that case, the fluctuation-mediated attraction between the atoms becomes orders of magnitude stronger than in free space. Usually, the force decreases rapidly with increasing distance between the atoms. Due to the transmission line, it falls off with one over the distance cubed, instead of one over the seventh power of the distance, as in the usual case.

07/24/14 - Update: electricity from space
KeelyNet There has been denial and skepticism that abundant energy exists in the atmosphere surrounding earth. The skepticism is much like that of earlier times when it was believed that the world was flat; and that the world rested on the backs of elephants; when earthquakes shook the ground, it was believed that the elephants were restless.

A similar disbelief prevailed when the Wright brothers attempted to fly their aeoplane. Skeptics said it could not be done.

After the Wright brothers and others flew airplanes successfully with new laws of 'aeronautics,' the application of the laws of aeronautics did not explain how bumble bees were able to fly!

So likewise, it is time to dispel the notion that energy in space does not exist! Energy in space or air surrounding the planet earth does exist.

There are numerous reasons why we do not have free energy. A major reason is that universities do no teach about free energy. Most scientists and engineers have been taught that the vacuum of space is completely empty and still in the absence of heat, light, and matter. Unless a student is studying quantum mechanics, his or her textbook never mentions free energy.

Another reason we do not have free energy is that our human senses cannot detect it. This vacuum energy is invisible and difficult to detect because it is everywhere. Expecting someone to sense vacuum energy is like asking a fish to detect the ocean; the fish has no concept of a world that isn't an ocean. Similarly, the fluctuations of electricity that make up space energy are too microscopic and too quick for us to sense them, either with our bodies or with standard detection equipment.

A third reason is the status quo of science academia in teaching what is accepted theory of how things work.

Why do engineering professors fail to teach their students about zero-point energy or space energy? The reason is that scientists assume that these vacuum fluctuations simply even out. They call this the second law of thermodynamics, also known as the law of entropy. Under this law, everything is doomed to increasing disorder, until all comes to a dead rest.

Traditional Laws of physics deny such a possibility. But scientists throughout the world have shown that space energy or aether does exist and that the traditional laws of physics may not be all that correct.

Finally, talking about free energy is "taboo!" Big business wants to keep their money machine. There is no economic incentive for energy companies to change from making lots of money to making very little!

KeelyNet See Something from Nothing Revisited - Most mainstreamers have the erroneous conception that alternative science fans, experimenters and researchers are looking to 'create' something from nothing in order to provide power necessary to run their perpetual motion machines or free energy devices.

The majority of people I know and communicate with are seeking one thing, a working free energy or gravity control device. Something we all can see, test, build (or buy) and use to make all of our lives easier.

The standard erroneous statement made by orthodox science goes as far back as Newton where Sir Isaac Newton once observed: "The seekers after perpetual motion are trying to get something from nothing."

To my view and in my communications with many others, nothing could be further from the truth. No one that I have ever communicated with has ever suggested that energy was being created. Instead, many of us believe it is possible to extract energy from the repulsion/attraction of magnetism, from gravity and from the omnipresent aether/zpe.

But let us not limit our seeking to just 3 sources, but expand it to include ANY ENERGY OR FORCE GRADIENT, knowing that the polarities, when placed in the proper arrangement, MUST COMBINE to create the natural condition of equilibrium. As the polarities move to recombine, we intend to guide them through the wheelwork of our machinery to do practical work. It also might be possible to tap into the force which causes the equilibrium disruption in the first place since there is an expansion and a collapse cycle to any equilibrium disturbance. - JWD - Update: electricity from space

07/24/14 - Tin Selenide is best at converting waste heat to electricity
One strategy for addressing the world’s energy crisis is to stop wasting so much energy when producing and using it, which can happen in coal-fired power plants or transportation. Nearly two-thirds of energy input is lost as waste heat.

An interdisciplinary team led by inorganic chemist Mercouri G. Kanatzidis found the crystal form of the chemical compound tin selenide conducts heat so poorly through its lattice structure that it is the most efficient thermoelectric material known. Unlike most thermoelectric materials, tin selenide has a simple structure, much like that of an accordion, which provides the key to its exceptional properties.

The efficiency of waste heat conversion in thermoelectrics is reflected by its figure of merit, called ZT. Tin selenide exhibits a ZT of 2.6, the highest reported to date at around 650 degrees Celsius. The material’s extremely low thermal conductivity boosts the ZT to this high level, while still retaining good electrical conductivity.

The ZT metric represents a ratio of electrical conductivity and thermoelectric power in the numerator (which needs to be high) and thermal conductivity in the denominator (which needs to be low).

Potential areas of application for the high-temperature thermoelectric material include the automobile industry (a significant amount of gasoline’s potential energy goes out of a vehicle’s tailpipe), heavy manufacturing industries (such as glass and brick making, refineries, coal- and gas-fired power plants) and places where large combustion engines operate continuously (such as in large ships and tankers).

“A good thermoelectric material is a business proposition -- as much commercial as it is scientific,” said Vinayak P. Dravid, a senior researcher on the team. “You don’t have to convert much of the world’s wasted energy into useful energy to make a material very exciting. We need a portfolio of solutions to the energy problem, and thermoelectric materials can play an important role.”

Zhao, a postdoctoral fellow in Kanatzidis’ research group, grew crystals of tin selenide and measured the crystal in three directions, along each axis. He found that the thermal conductivity was “ridiculously low” along the a-axis but also along the other two axes.

“We found that the bonds between some atoms in this compound are very weak and lead to exceptionally soft, floppy atomic vibrations,” said Wolverton, a senior author of the paper and a professor of materials science at the McCormick School.

Wolverton, an expert in computational materials science related to energy applications, showed that the accordion-like structure and weak bonds lead to atoms that vibrate very slowly.

“These very weak vibrations are responsible for the inability of the material to conduct heat,” Wolverton said. “Our theory provides the scientific basis as to why the material behaves the way it does and also provides us with a new direction to search for even higher-efficiency materials.”

“Tin selenide reminds us of that popular TV commercial for a memory foam mattress in which a person can jump on one side of the mattress while a glass of wine a few feet away is unperturbed -- the vibrations do not reach the glass because of the mattress’ material,” Kanatzidis said.

“Similarly, in tin selenide, heat cannot travel well through this material because its soft, accordion-like structure doesn’t transmit vibrations well,” he said. “One side of tin selenide gets hot -- where the waste heat is, for example -- while the other side remains cool. This enables the hot side to generate useful electricity.” - Tin Selenide is best at converting waste heat to electricity

07/24/14 - 9 Reasons U.S. Ended up More Car-Dependent Than Europe


The photo shows a comparison between bicycles, cars and buses. We are so selfish in wanting transporation just for us when we could save money, gas and the ecosystem by using public transport. - JWD

Between the 1920s and 1960s, policies adapting cities to car travel in the United States served as a role model for much of Western Europe. But by the late 1960s, many European cities started refocusing their policies to curb car use by promoting walking, cycling, and public transportation. For the last two decades, in the face of car-dependence, suburban sprawl, and an increasingly unsustainable transportation system, U.S. planners have been looking to Western Europe.

The numbers show the need for change. In 2010, Americans drove for 85 percent of their daily trips, compared to car trip shares of 50 to 65 percent in Europe. Longer trip distances only partially explain the difference. Roughly 30 percent of daily trips are shorter than a mile on either side of the Atlantic. But of those under one-mile trips, Americans drove almost 70 percent of the time, while Europeans made 70 percent of their short trips by bicycle, foot, or public transportation.

Mass motorization, road standards, vehicle taxes, interstate system, government subsidies, technological focus, public transit, walking and cycling and zoning laws.

For the US, he needs to include Suppression of electric vehicles and the oil companies paying cities to get rid of public transport like trolley cars, subways, trains and buses because cars would use far more oil and gas. - JWD - 9 Reasons U.S. Ended up More Car-Dependent Than Europe

07/24/14 - Gas saver Dodge running on fumes
1992 dodge truck running on gas fumes. This is my first try with this simple system and it worked. I do not recommend driving like this full time because it needs more stuff done to it to be safer but you get the jist of it.

From my understanding in all my studying on gas cars is that raw gas is sprayed into cylinders, regardless of how small the injection system makes it, and the most you get out of that is 30 percent. Everyone knows only the gas fumes are flammable and not the liquid form of it.

If you watch gas go into a motor, it is in liquid form. You can see this in throttle body inj. The rest is unburned and gets wasted out of the exhaust. That is why exhaust is flammable and so pollutant. But this was to see if cars can run off only fumes and not raw gas. I will see what the mileage is soon on my next project and tell you what happens.

I do plan to heat the gas while vaporizing it. I thought about using the heater hoses through the tank. Your idea to heat it up before going into the throttle body is a good idea in itself. some other people are claiming 10 more mpg just doing that. so that in itself would be worth it. Similar inventions for carbs have been invented and thrown away by big wigs.

I am going to use a 3 inch flex exhaust pipe and stuff it with metal screen. I will also put the air cleaner back in full time and ad some screen in there . I am thinking about a one way metal flap in there also but we will see.?

Commenter; "This is not a fake. I tried this on my 1967 international scout with a 345v8 out of a 1974 international travelall and it ran just the same as it usually does. The only issue i came across was the 1 gallon tank i used got really cold and im going to work on adding heat to the fuel to help the vaporization process."

One commenter recommended he use a flash arrestor for safety, to which he responded, "I've been thinking about that. would roll it tight and put it in the air tube going to the air intake..." - Gas saver Dodge running on fumes

07/24/14 - Man claims fuel system gets 463 miles per gallon
KeelyNet “John Weston’s 1992 Geo Storm doesn’t look like much on the outside. But there are some people that say it’s what’s under a car’s hood that matters. “Since I changed the fuel system unit, it’s drastically different. I disconnected the fuel line from the injector so no liquid goes to the engine,” said Weston.

Weston showed NBC2 a version of his air vapor flow system where instead of liquid fuel, only vapors go to the engine. They used to say, ‘Hey I’m running on empty. I’m running on fumes.’ Well, this is actually running on fumes,” he said.

Weston says the system burns cleaner and also made a bold claim about fuel efficiency from a one-time test. “It came up to 463 miles a gallon if we had driven in the same manner – a gallon,” said Weston.

“I drove from here to Fort Myers, and I’m up there keeping up with traffic running 80 mph.” Now, the backyard mechanic is looking for investors so he can eventually take his invention public. In the meantime, he says you might see his car on the highway.” - Man claims fuel system gets 463 miles per gallon
