Chemists shed new light on global energy, food supply challenge

All living things require nitrogen for survival, but the world depends on only two known processes to break nitrogen's ultra-strong bonds to allow conversion to a form humans, animals and plants can consume. One is a natural, bacterial process on which farmers have relied since the dawn of agriculture. The other is the century-old Haber-Bösch process, which revolutionized fertilizer production and spurred unprecedented growth of the global food supply.

"We live in a sea of nitrogen, yet our bodies can't access it from the air," says Utah State University biochemist Lance Seefeldt. "Instead, we get this life-sustaining compound from protein in our food."

But now, Seefeldt and colleagues announce a light-driven process that could, once again, revolutionize agriculture, while reducing the world food supply's dependence on fossil fuels and relieving Haber-Bösch's heavy carbon footprint. The research team, which includes USU's Seefeldt, Derek Harris, Andrew Rasmussen and Nimesh Khadka; Katherine A. Brown and Paul W. King of Colorado's National Renewable Energy Laboratory; Molly Wilker, Hayden Hamby and Gordana Dukovic of the University of Colorado and Stephen Keable and John Peters of Montana State University, publishes findings in the April 22, 2016 issue of the journal Science.

"Our research demonstrates photochemical energy can replace adenosine triphosphate, which is typically used to convert dinitrogen, the form of nitrogen found in the air, to ammonia, a main ingredient of commercially produced fertilizers," says Seefeldt, professor in USU's Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and an American Association for the Advancement of Science Fellow.

Any way you slice it, he says, nitrogen fixation is an energy-intensive process.

"The Haber-Bösch process currently consumes about two percent of the world's fossil fuel supply," Seefeldt says. "So, the new process, which uses nanomaterials to capture light energy, could be a game-changer."

"Using light directly to create a catalyst is much more energy efficient, says Brown, NREL research scientist. "This new ammonia-producing process is the first example of how light energy can be directly coupled to dinitrogen reduction, meaning sunlight or artificial light can power the reaction."

Energy-efficient production of ammonia holds promise not only for food production, but also for development of technologies that enable use of environmentally cleaner alternative fuels, including improved fuel cells to store solar energy.

In addition to its practical applications, the research sheds light on fundamental aspects of how bacterial enzymes known as nitrogenases function; an area of chemistry Seefeldt has studied for nearly two decades.

The research at USU was supported by the U.S. Department of Energy.

Light-driven dinitrogen reduction catalyzed by a CdS:nitrogenase MoFe protein biohybrid.

Enzymes make fertilizer with sunlight

Nitrogenase enzymes catalyze the biological production of fixed nitrogen. Because this is not enough to sustain modern agriculture, industrial fertilizers containing ammonia are produced via the energy-intensive Haber-Bosch process. Brown et al. developed a way to use nitrogenase enzymes from nitrogen-fixing bacteria to make ammonia in vitro without other biological steps or high-energy inputs. Light-activated CdS nanorods provided electrons to the FeMo nitrogenase enzyme to reduce nitrogen and produce ammonia at rates up to 64% of biological nitrogen fixation. These nanoparticle-protein complexes show the potential for solar-driven ammonia production.


The splitting of dinitrogen (N2) and reduction to ammonia (NH3) is a kinetically complex and energetically challenging multistep reaction. In the Haber-Bosch process, N2 reduction is accomplished at high temperature and pressure, whereas N2 fixation by the enzyme nitrogenase occurs under ambient conditions using chemical energy from adenosine 5′-triphosphate (ATP) hydrolysis. We show that cadmium sulfide (CdS) nanocrystals can be used to photosensitize the nitrogenase molybdenum-iron (MoFe) protein, where light harvesting replaces ATP hydrolysis to drive the enzymatic reduction of N2 into NH3. The turnover rate was 75 per minute, 63% of the ATP-coupled reaction rate for the nitrogenase complex under optimal conditions. Inhibitors of nitrogenase (i.e., acetylene, carbon monoxide, and dihydrogen) suppressed N2 reduction. The CdS:MoFe protein biohybrids provide a photochemical model for achieving light-driven N2 reduction to NH3.

A new way to get electricity from magnetism

'Inverse spin Hall effect' works in several organic semiconductors

By showing that a phenomenon dubbed the 'inverse spin Hall effect' works in several organic semiconductors -- including carbon-60 buckyballs -- physicists changed magnetic 'spin current' into electric current. The efficiency of this new power conversion method isn't yet known, but it might find use in future electronic devices including batteries, solar cells and computers.

By showing that a phenomenon dubbed the "inverse spin Hall effect" works in several organic semiconductors -- including carbon-60 buckyballs -- University of Utah physicists changed magnetic "spin current" into electric current. The efficiency of this new power conversion method isn't yet known, but it might find use in future electronic devices including batteries, solar cells and computers.

"This paper is the first to demonstrate the inverse spin Hall effect in a range of organic semiconductors with unprecedented sensitivity," although a 2013 study by other researchers demonstrated it with less sensitivity in one such material, says Christoph Boehme, a senior author of the study published April 18 in the journal Nature Materials.

"The inverse spin Hall effect is a remarkable phenomenon that turns so-called spin current into an electric current. The effect is so odd that nobody really knows what this will be used for eventually, but many technical applications are conceivable, including very odd new power-conversion schemes," says Boehme, a physics professor.

His fellow senior author, distinguished professor Z. Valy Vardeny, says that by using pulses of microwaves, the inverse spin Hall effect and organic semiconductors to convert spin current into electricity, this new electromotive force generates electrical current in a way different than existing sources.

Coal, gas, hydroelectric, wind and nuclear plants all use dynamos to convert mechanical force into magnetic-field changes and then electricity. Chemical reactions power modern batteries and solar cells convert light to electrical current. Converting spin current into electrical current is another method.

Scientists already are developing such devices, such as a thermoelectric generator, using traditional inorganic semiconductors. Vardeny says organic semiconductors are promising because they are cheap, easily processed and environmentally friendly. He notes that both organic solar cells and organic LED (light-emitting diode) TV displays were developed even though silicon solar cells and nonorganic LEDs were widely used.

Vardeny and Boehme stressed that the efficiency at which organic semiconductors convert spin current to electric current remains unknown, so it is too early to predict the extent to which it might one day be used for new power conversion techniques in batteries, solar cells, computers, phones and other consumer electronics.

"I want to invoke a degree of caution," Boehme says. "This is a power conversion effect that is new and mostly unstudied."

Boehme notes that the experiments in the new study converted more spin current to electrical current than in the 2013 study, but Vardeny cautioned the effect still "would have to be scaled up many times to produce voltages equivalent to household batteries."

The new study was funded by the National Science Foundation and the University of Utah-NSF Materials Research Science and Engineering Center. Study co-authors with Vardeny and Boehme were these University of Utah physicists: research assistant professors Dali Sun and Hans Malissa, postdoctoral researchers Kipp van Schooten and Chuang Zhang, and graduate students Marzieh Kavand and Matthew Groesbeck.

From spin current to electric current

Just as atomic nuclei and the electrons that orbit them carry electrical charges, they also have another inherent property: spin, which makes them behave like tiny bar magnets that can point north or south.

Electronic devices store and transmit information using the flow of electricity in the form of electrons, which are negatively charged subatomic particles. The zeroes and ones of computer binary code are represented by the absence or presence of electrons within silicon or other nonorganic semiconductors.

Spin electronics -- spintronics -- holds promise for faster, cheaper computers, better electronics and LEDs for displays, and smaller sensors to detect everything from radiation to magnetic fields.

The inverse spin Hall effect first was demonstrated in metals in 2008, and then in nonorganic semiconductors, Vardeny says. In 2013, researchers elsewhere showed it occurred in an organic semiconductor named PEDOT:PSS when it was exposed to continuous microwaves that were relatively weak to avoid frying the semiconductor.

But Boehme and Vardeny say the electrical current generated in that study by the inverse spin Hall effect was small -- nanovoltages -- and was obscured by microwave heating of the sample and other undesired effects.

"We thought, let's build different devices so these spurious effects were eliminated or very small compared with the effect we wanted to observe," Boehme says.

In the new study, the researchers used short pulses of more powerful microwaves to utilize the inverse spin Hall effect and convert a spin current to electric current in seven organic semiconductors, mostly at room temperature.

One organic semiconductor was PEDOT:PSS -- the same material in the 2013 study. The others were three platinum-rich organic polymers, two so-called pi-conjugated polymers and the spherical carbon-60 molecule named buckminsterfullerene because it looks like a pair of geodesic domes popularized by the late architect Buckminster Fuller.

The carbon-60 proved surprisingly to be the most efficient semiconductor at converting spin waves into electrical current, Vardeny says.

How the experiments were performed

The Utah physicists take multiple steps to convert spin current to electrical current. They begin with a small glass slide, about 2.1-inches long and one-sixth-inch wide. Two electrical contacts are attached to one end of the glass slide. Thin, flat copper wires run the length of the slide, connecting the contacts at one end with a "sandwich" at the other end that includes the glass at the bottom, the organic polymer semiconductor being tested in the middle and a nickel-iron ferromagnet on top.

This device then is inserted lengthwise into a metal tube about 1-inch diameter and 3.5 inches long. A nonconducting material surrounds the device inside this tube, which then is inserted into a table-sized magnet that generates a magnetic field.

"We apply a magnetic field and leave it more or less constant," Boehme says. "Then we hook up the two contacts to a voltage meter and start measuring the voltage coming out of the device as a function of time."

With just the magnetic field, no electrical current was detected. But then the Utah physicists bombarded the organic semiconductor device with pulses of microwaves -- as powerful as those from a home microwave oven but in pulses ranging from only 100 to 5,000 nanoseconds (the latter equal to one 200,000th of a second).

"All of a sudden we saw a voltage during that pulse," Boehme says.

Vardeny says the microwave pulses generate spin waves in the device's magnet, then the waves are converted into spin current in the organic semiconductor, and then into an electric current detected as a voltage.

Compared with the 2013 study, the use of microwave pulses in the Utah experiments meant "our power is much higher but the heating is much less and the inverse spin Hall effect is about 100 times stronger," Boehme says.

In effect, the pulsed microwaves provide a way to enhance the inverse spin Hall effect so it can be used to convert power, Vardeny adds.

The new study also showed that the conversion of spin current to electric current works in organic semiconductors via "spin-orbit coupling" -- the same process found in inorganic conductors and semiconductors -- even though the phenomenon in inorganic and organic materials works in fundamentally different ways, Boehme says.

This coupling is much weaker in organic than in nonorganic semiconductors, but "the big achievement we made was to find an experimental method sensitive enough to reliably measure these very weak effects in organic semiconductors," Boehme says.

Inverse spin Hall effect from pulsed spin current in organic semiconductors with tunable spin–orbit coupling.

Exploration of spin currents in organic semiconductors (OSECs) induced by resonant microwave absorption in ferromagnetic substrates is appealing for potential spintronics applications. Owing to the inherently weak spin–orbit coupling (SOC) of OSECs, their inverse spin Hall effect (ISHE) response is very subtle; limited by the microwave power applicable under continuous-wave (cw) excitation. Here we introduce a novel approach for generating significant ISHE signals in OSECs using pulsed ferromagnetic resonance, where the ISHE is two to three orders of magnitude larger compared to cw excitation. This strong ISHE enables us to investigate a variety of OSECs ranging from π-conjugated polymers with strong SOC that contain intrachain platinum atoms, to weak SOC polymers, to C60 films, where the SOC is predominantly caused by the curvature of the molecule’s surface. The pulsed-ISHE technique offers a robust route for efficient injection and detection schemes of spin currents at room temperature, and paves the way for spin orbitronics in plastic materials.

BREAKING: CDC whistleblower confesses to MMR vaccine research fraud in historic public statement

by Mike Adams

CDC whistleblower William Thompson has now gone public with a statement posted on the website of the law firm representing him, Morgan Verkamp LLC. (See the full statement reprinted below.)

The statement opens with a blatant admission of scientific fraud at the CDC:

My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998. I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed...

Tripedia & Autism :


Dr. Mary Newport has a theory that ketone bodies, which the body makes when digesting coconut oil, may be an alternative fuel for the brain. She believes that coconut oil may offer profound benefits in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. If her theory is accurate, it could be one of the greatest natural health discoveries in years.

The Backstory

Dr. Newport has her own personal history with Alzheimer’s. Her husband, Steve, suffered from progressive dementia for at least five years in his mid-50s, then had an MRI that supported a clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. She recounts her story in a case study. “Many days, often for several days in a row, he was in a fog; couldn’t find a spoon or remember how to get water out of the refrigerator… One day I would ask if a certain call came that I was expecting and he would say ‘No.’ Two days later he would remember the message from so-and-so from a couple of days earlier and what they said.”

Dr. Newport noted that her husband had no short-term memory, yet the information was still filed somewhere in his brain. She had a gut feeling that his diet had something to do with it. He began taking medication in hopes that it would help slow the process, but he became depressed, lost weight, forgot how to cook, use a calculator or even perform simple addition. Steve forgot how to perform many common tasks, but would spend all day working in the yard or in his garage and remained in good physical condition.

Finding Hope

A few studies about the potential use of medium chain triglycerides or ketone bodies to not only treat but prevent Alzheimer’s disease caught Dr. Newport’s eye. Medium chain triglycerides are also regarded as a potential treatment for Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, multiple sclerosis, drug resistant epilepsy, and diabetes. Dr. Newport explains, “Ketone bodies may help the brain recover after a loss of oxygen in newborns through adults, may help the heart recover after an acute attack, and may shrink cancerous tumors. Children with drug resistant epilepsy sometimes respond to an extremely low carbohydrate ketogenic diet.”

The body’s cells may be able to use ketone bodies as an alternative fuel when glucose is unavailable. Ketone bodies do not normally circulate in the body unless it has been starving for a few days, or if one is on a very low-carb diet, such as Atkins. Dr. Newport explains, “In Alzheimer’s disease, the neurons in certain areas of the brain are unable to take in glucose due to insulin resistance, and slowly die off… if these cells had access to ketone bodies, they could potentially stay alive and continue to function.”

The Results

To make a long story short, Dr. Newport started giving a daily dose of coconut oil to her husband, Steve. Just 60 days after he started taking it, Dr. Newport recalls that Steve was alert and happy, talkative and making jokes, and the tremor he’d developed was less noticeable. He was able to concentrate on one task instead of being easily distracted. Steve receives about 2 tablespoons of coconut oil twice a day, to make sure that there are no periods where ketone bodies aren’t circulating.

After a year of the natural treatment, Dr. Newport says her husband is a different person. She notes that he still has difficulty finding some words, but he recognized relatives on a family trip, participated actively in conversations, and his facial expressions were more animated.

She adds, “For now, we are very pleased with where he is at and should coconut oil stop or slow down the progress of his disease, it will be worth every drop that he takes.”

The number of products containing probiotics, viable bacteria with proven health benefits, entering the market is increasing. Traditionally, probiotics have been associated with gut health, and most clinical interest has been focused on their use for prevention or treatment of gastrointestinal infections and diseases; however, during the last decade several investigators have also suggested the use of probiotics for oral health purposes. The aim of this review is to examine potential mechanisms of probiotic bacteria in the oral cavity and summarize observed effects of probiotics with respect to oral health. The review focuses on probiotic lactobacilli and bifidobacteria, genera that are most used in various probiotic products.

Solar power 24/7 (at least if it rains) in breakthrough tech concept

Super-thin graphene and solar panels are both great ideas, but combining them produces near-magical results. A group of researchers from the Ocean University of China in Qingdao has discovered what the wonder material can do for clean energy when introduced to water.

For so long the world’s scientists were stumped as to how to extract the maximum potential from solar energy, which for obvious reasons is not available 24/7. The answer was found in the properties inherent in graphene, something scientists are still continuing to explore.

The researchers posited that the world can easily extract energy using solar panels even when it’s raining, or during night time. This capability is achieved via a chemical reaction that happens when water drops are introduced to graphene.

But not just any old water will do the trick. It's rain water that the researchers are after, because it consists of various other chemicals including salts, which can split up into positive and negative ions. The graphene sheets in place of ordinary panels separate the positively and negatively charged ions, thus generating electricity.

To prove that the concept works, the scientists used a cheap thin dye-sensitized solar cell, then added a thin layer of graphene on top. The resulting sandwich was then placed atop a layer of indium tin oxide and plastic. The positively-charged ions then interact with the graphene, producing a double layer that contains the electrons. Now this top double layer begins to interact with the negatively-charged ions in the layer below. The charge difference between them is enough to create an electrical current.

Using slightly salty water, the researchers achieved 6.53 percent efficiency during conversion from solar to electric power, and produced hundreds of microvolts.

At the moment this is all still ‘proof of concept,’ but that’s arguably the most important part, as the Ocean University team sets out to refine and iron out quirks in the idea. They hope the technology will become ubiquitous in future, as well as contribute to speeding up policy changes in the sphere of renewable energy.

The team is now analyzing rain water to uncover the variety of ions it contains and put them to use. This is not easy as they’re normally found in quite low concentrations, but progress is certainly being made.

Wonder-material graphene was discovered less than a decade ago, and has already found its way into all sorts of everyday technologies. It earned wide renown thanks to its uncanny, bendy qualities. It’s also not the first time scientists have thought of using graphene for improvements in solar power generation – in fact, it's not even the first time this year.

Earlier in 2016, British scientists arrived at a graphene-based material capable of storing ambient heat and light. This is a big leap, as we’ve only known solar panels to be effective in direct sunlight. This new concept, however, wants them to be practically anywhere and still capture and retain any indirect heat and light for future use.

VAXXED: The Documentary That Destroys The CDC’s Lies About Autism and Vaccines


Tami Canal

I had the incredible opportunity this weekend to watch what I believe will ultimately end up being the most powerful documentary of our lifetimes, VAXXED: From Cover-up to Catastrophe.

After seeing this deeply troubling film, I can honestly say that I am done.

I am done trying to argue vaccine safety with people who vehemently trust information from someone strictly because they wear a lab coat. I am done trying to convince people how dangerous vaccine additives are and that carcinogens, genetically modified antigens and neurotoxins have no business being plunged into the muscle tissue of a developing child in the name of immunity from diseases that haven’t seen our shorelines since our grandparents were children. I am done trying to save those so blinded by Big Pharma talking points that they are willing to sacrifice their innocent children to the contents of a toxic syringe.

What I am not done doing is voicing loudly the deep corruption that exists at the CDC. I am not done doing my part to expose how senior scientists have destroyed damaging research that would have jeopardized the billion dollar vaccine industry. The callous destruction of evidence that has literally destroyed countless lives calls into question every single safety assurance made by this agency. If the CDC blatantly lied about something as profound as an MMR/autism link, what else are they lying about? What other research has been destroyed at the expense of our children?

VAXXED: From Cover-Up To Catastrophe focuses on recorded phone calls between Dr. Brian Hooker and Dr. William Thompson, a senior research scientist at the CDC, which reveal a high-ranking and well-respected research team destroyed critical evidence linking the MMR vaccine and autism. Dr. Thompson, unaware he is being recorded, provides in detail the lengths that were gone to hide the damaging research, asserting a secret meeting took place between the scientists, a trash can and the shocking findings.

The film provides proof that Dr. Frank DeStephano (who runs the Vaccine Safety Division), Dr. Coleene Boyle (Director of the Birth Defects & Developmental Disabilities Department), and former CDC director, Dr. Julie Gerberding (who is currently the executive vice president at pharmaceutical giant Merck) were involved in the literal destruction of research that proved an autism/MMR link, primarily in black children under the age of 3 who had as much as a 236% increase in the chance of developing autism following the common childhood vaccine.

I certainly wasn’t able to watch without tears as undeniable proof is presented in the film that the CDC has known for over ten years that the MMR vaccine was more than just casually linked to the development of autism. I couldn’t help but cry for the countless lives who have been forever altered by the CDC’s allegiance to the pharmaceutical industry, no matter the cost to innocent children or their families.

The film provides concrete video evidence of one child in particular who was severely damaged by the MMR vaccine. This sweet, blonde baby had reached all of his developmental milestones, and is documented on film laughing, running, smiling and interacting with his parents and sister. And then the MMR vaccine was administered. The footage following the vaccine portrays an entirely different child. The heartbreaking footage shows the toddler, who just days before was walking and even running, so confused that he can barely stand. He continues to try and stand repeatedly, only to take a couple steps, stumble and fall. Before the footage cuts off, you can see him try to walk on his head and hands, clearly frustrated and confused.

Dr. Andrew Wakefield narrates the film and should be regarded globally as a hero in an effort to save our children from the murderers running the CDC. Another thing I am done with is tolerating any mud-slinging or bashing of Dr. Wakefield. It is intolerable what the media and medical industry have done to this heroic man. I encourage you to learn the facts of the true story involving Dr. Wakefield. VAXXED does an amazing job of showing his courage despite the fact that so many have tried to destroy him for simply telling the truth. He believes the combination of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine and the age that it is administered is what is of concern and actually states in his VAXXED interview that he believes the shots should be given individually. But as VAXXED documents, the CDC knows allowing children to be vaccinated in single doses would destroy the billion dollar vaccine program.

Anyone that wants to argue that Dr. Andrew Wakefield is “anti-vaccination” or a “quack” really needs to go do some independent research.

The documentary is emotional and extremely well done. A portion of the movie focuses on the Hear This Well movement which came to be following a mainstream media attempt to overshadow vaccine dangers with a television anchorwoman ignorantly stating “Hear this well, vaccines do not cause autism.” VAXXED shows just a few of the numerous submissions to the Hear This Well campaign and it’s hard not to feel a lump in your throat at the emotional testimony of the parents of these innocent children who are now serving a life sentence with a disease that very likely could have been avoided if scientific integrity had been demonstrated.

Regardless of your position on vaccination, the bottom line is that corruption exists at the CDC. This is an agency that is institutionally conflicted. Senior scientists are complicit and directly involved with the destruction of research that has harmed hundreds of thousands of lives. Instead of punishment for these heinous actions, promotions are doled out and everyone get richer. Regardless if you are of of the lucky ones, like myself, whose child wasn’t harmed by vaccines, the fact remains that there are children who have been harmed or killed. A vaccine injury court exists which uses tax payer dollars to compensate the families of babies and children who have been killed or damaged by vaccines. To remain neutral or even in denial to the fact that vaccines are hurting and killing children makes you complicit to the potentially civilization-ending epidemic we are facing. Regardless if your baby didn’t die following a round of vaccinations doesn’t mean that it hasn’t happened or that it won’t continue to happen as long as the CDC is allowed to get away with this blatant evidence tampering.

The film also points to the fact that CDC scientist-turned-whistleblower Dr. Thompson has turned over all of this evidence to Congressman Bill Posey of Florida. Posey has had the information for over a year while doctors continue to inject children with this highly questionable vaccine and trick unsuspecting parents that vaccines are the greatest thing to modern medicine.

Where is the congressional hearing? Where is the national attention to this life-destroying lie that has been told for over a decade? Where is the president? Where are the health officials demanding answers and accountability?

I cannot express how deeply troubled I feel after seeing VAXXED. I don’t know how it is possible to see this film and not feel anger at a lie that has been perpetuated so the pharmaceutical industry could profit in the billions. I don’t know how someone could see this movie and not rethink and question every single assurance of safety ever made by their doctors. These are our children, for crying out loud! As parents, we are their protectors and it is up to us to make the best possible choices for their health. But how can we possibly do that when critical information is being kept from us?

I encourage you to see this film before considering vaccination. It is important to realize that every vaccine-injured child has a parent who once trusted in vaccines. The film makes you realize that we are all fumbling around in the dark for answers because the truth is not what we have been told. VAXXED will have you rethinking everything when it comes to the health decisions of our most precious humans. Doctors are using the CDC’s research to practice medicine, treat patients and educate parents. The sooner you realize that everything your doctor has told you originates from the morally bankrupt CDC, the closer we will be to saving a soon-to-be lost generation.

Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder :

10,000 Women Develop Cancer Because of This Powder

The baby powder is usually found in every household, even when there is no baby. Most women use the talc-based powder because it makes the skin younger looking and soft. If you are one of them, you need to stop that. Baby powder, like that one from Johnson and Johnson, is increasing the risk by 33% of women of being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The epidemiologist Dr. Daniel Cramer thinks that minimum 10,000 women get ovarian cancer because they use this baby powder every day.≥.


 Cilantro is a cheap and renewable water filter

Similar to dandelions and parsley, when dried out, crushed up cilantro absorbs metal from water, particularly lead and nickel.

Both dangerous metals to have present in drinking water, lead and nickel are absorbed through cell walls of cilantro in a unique display of biosorption. It can be used in tea bags, which are placed in a pot of water for three minutes and then removed, or by stuffing it in a tube and dripping water through it (similar to a Britta filter). The lead researcher of a study taking place outside of Mexico City, Douglas Schauer, noted that a “handful of cilantro will nearly cleanse a pitcher full of highly contaminated water of its lead content.”

This has proved a successful filter in areas around the world where the activated carbon filters, like those manufactured by Brita, are expensive, particularly in regions of rural farming. People can go grab some from the ground when a new filter is needed.

More study is being done, including trying to find out if arsenic and mercury are absorbed by the herb as well and if there is some sort of “synergy” when multiple metals interact with the herb at once.

Rigord of Saint Denis Prophecy

The French chronicler Rigord of St. Denis lived in the 12th century. He wrote a prophetic text in Latin, which was later translated and printed by Fritz Baer. The following parts pertain to our future:

 "At that time from the sea will rise a very strong wind, which will strike terror in the hearts of men, and it will raise sand and dust from the surface of the earth, until it will cover the trees and the towers... And there will be heard in the air quakes and thunder and voices which will strike terror in the hearts of men, and all the countries will be covered with sand and dust... For that wind will rise from the west corner and reach until the west corner, encompassing all the countries of Egypt and Ethiopia... and also the lands of Rome.

"After those events of the winds, five miracles will come to pass one after another.
"First, a most wise man will arise from the east, versed in secret wisdom, that is, in wisdom which is beyond man. And he will walk in justice and will teach the law of truth, and he will cause many to return to straight mores from the darkness of ignorance, and from unbelief to the way of truth, and he will instruct the sinners in the way of righteousness, and he will not pride himself with being counted among the prophets.

"Secondly, a man will come forth from Elam and will assemble a multitude of great forces (Daniel 11:1), and will wage a great war against the nations (Zechariah 14), and he will not live long.

"Thirdly, up will rise another man who will say that he is a prophet. He will hold a book in his hand and say that he was sent by God and by His prophets. And with his teachings he will cause many nations to go astray, and will seduce even more. But that which he will prophesy will come upon his own head. And he, too, will not live long.

"Fourthly, a comet will be seen in heaven -- a star, that is, with a tail or appendage -- and this apparition will signify destructions and tumults and hard strifes, and withholding of rains, and dryness of the earth, and mighty battles, and the flowing of blood upon the earth of the east, and from beyond the River Habor it will reach to the very end of the west. And the just and the truly righteous will be oppressed and will suffer persecutions, and the house of prayer will be destroyed.

"Fifthly, there will be an eclipse of the sun, like the color of fire, until the whole body of the sun will be obscured, and at the time of the eclipse there will such darkness over the earth as there is at midnight on those nights when there is no moonlight, in the days of the rains…"

The Last Prophecy of Peter Deunov ( 1944 )

"During the passage of time, the consciousness of man traversed a very long period of obscurity. This phase which the Hindus call "Kali Yuga", is on the verge of ending. We find ourselves today at the frontier between two epochs: that of Kali Yuga and that of the New Era that we are entering.

A gradual improvement is already occurring in the thoughts, sentiments and acts of humans, but everybody will soon be subjugated to divine Fire, that will purify and prepare them in regards to the New Era. Thus man will raise himself to a superior degree of consciousness, indispensable to his entrance to the New Life. That is what one understands by "Ascension".

Some decades will pass before this Fire will come, that will transform the world by bringing it a new moral. This immense wave comes from cosmic space and will inundate the entire earth. All those that attempt to oppose it will be carried off and transferred elsewhere.

Although the inhabitants of this planet do not all find themselves at the same degree of evolution, the new wave will be felt by each one of us. And this transformation will not only touch the Earth, but the ensemble of the entire Cosmos.

The best and only thing that man can do now is to turn towards God and improve himself consciously, to elevate his vibratory level, so as to find himself in harmony with the powerful wave that will soon submerge him.

The Fire of which I speak, that accompanies the new conditions offered to our planet, will rejuvenate, purify, reconstruct everything: the matter will be refined, your hearts will be liberated from anguish, troubles, incertitude, and they will become luminous; everything will be improved, elevated; the thoughts, sentiments and negative acts will be consumed and destroyed.

Your present life is a slavery, a heavy prison. Understand your situation and liberate yourself from it. I tell you this: exit from your prison! It is really sorry to see so much misleading, so much suffering, so much incapacity to understand where one's true happiness lies.

Everything that is around you will soon collapse and disappear. Nothing will be left of this civilization nor its perversity; the entire earth will be shaken and no trace will be left of this erroneous culture that maintains men under the yoke of ignorance. Earthquakes are not only mechanical phenomena, their goal is also to awaken the intellect and the heart of humans, so that they liberate themselves from their errors and their follies and that they understand that they are not the only ones in the universe.

Our solar system is now traversing a region of the Cosmos where a constellation that was destroyed left its mark, its dust. This crossing of a contaminated space is a source of poisoning, not only for the inhabitants of the earth, but for all the inhabitants of the other planets of our galaxy. Only the suns are not affected by the influence of this hostile environment. This region is called "the thirteenth zone"; one also calls it "the zone of contradictions". Our planet was enclosed in this region for thousands of years, but finally we are approaching the exit of this space of darkness and we are on the point of attaining a more spiritual region, where more evolved beings live.

The earth is now following an ascending movement and everyone should force themselves to harmonize with the currents of the ascension. Those who refuse to subjugate themselves to this orientation will lose the advantage of good conditions that are offered in the future to elevate themselves. They will remain behind in evolution and must wait tens of millions of years for the coming of a new ascending wave.

The earth, the solar system, the universe, all are being put in a new direction under the impulsion of Love. Most of you still consider Love as a derisory force, but in reality, it is the greatest of all forces! Money and power continue to be venerated as if the course of your life depended upon it. In the future, all will be subjugated to Love and all will serve it. But it is through suffering and difficulties that the consciousness of man will be awakened.

The terrible predictions of the prophet Daniel written in the bible relate to the epoch that is opening. There will be floods, hurricanes, gigantic fires and earthquakes that will sweep away everything. Blood will flow in abundance. There will be revolutions; terrible explosions will resound in numerous regions of the earth. There where there is earth, water will come, and there where there is water, earth will come. God is Love; yet we are dealing here with a chastisement, a reply by Nature against the crimes perpetrated by man since the night of time against his Mother; the Earth.

After these sufferings, those that will be saved, the elite, will know the Golden Age, harmony and unlimited beauty. Thus keep your peace and your faith when the time comes for suffering and terror, because it is written that not a hair will fall from the head of the just. Don't be discouraged, simply follow your work of personal perfection.
You have no idea of the grandiose future that awaits you. A New Earth will soon see day. In a few decades the work will be less exacting, and each one will have the time to consecrate spiritual, intellectual and artistic activities. The question of rapport between man and woman will be finally resolved in harmony; each one having the possibility of following their aspirations. The relations of couples will be founded on reciprocal respect and esteem. Humans will voyage through the different planes of space and breakthrough intergalactic space. They will study their functioning and will rapidly be able to know the Divine World, to fusion with the Head of the Universe.

The New Era is that of the sixth race. Your predestination is to prepare yourself for it, to welcome it and to live it. The sixth race will build itself around the idea of Fraternity. There will be no more conflicts of personal interests; the single aspiration of each one will be to conform himself to the Law of Love. The sixth race will be that of Love. A new continent will be formed for it. It will emerge from the Pacific, so that the Most High can finally establish His place on this planet.

The founders of this new civilization, I call them "Brothers of Humanity" or also "Children of Love" They will be unshakeable for the good and they will represent a new type of men. Men will form a family, as a large body, and each people will represent an organ in this body. In the new race, Love will manifest in such a perfect manner, that today's man can only have a very vague idea.

The earth will remain a terrain favourable to struggle, but the forces of darkness will retreat and the earth will be liberated from them. Humans seeing that there is no other path will engage themselves to the path of the New Life, that of salvation. In their senseless pride, some will, to the end hope to continue on earth a life that the Divine Order condemns, but each one will finish by understanding that the direction of the world doesn't belong to them.

A new culture will see the light of day, it will rest on three principal foundations: the elevation of woman, the elevation of the meek and humble, and the protection of the rights of man.

The light, the good, and justice will triumph; it is just a question of time. The religions should be purified. Each contains a particle of the Teaching of the Masters of Light, but obscured by the incessant supply of human deviation. All the believers will have to unite and to put themselves in agreement with one principal, that of placing Love as the base of all belief, whatever it may be. Love and Fraternity that is the common base!

The earth will soon be swept by extraordinary rapid waves of Cosmic Electricity. A few decades from now beings who are bad and lead others astray will not be able to support their intensity. They will thus be absorbed by Cosmic Fire that will consume the bad that they possess. Then they will repent because it is written that "each flesh shall glorify God".

Our mother, the earth, will get rid of men that don't accept the New Life. She will reject them like damaged fruit. They will soon not be able to reincarnate on this planet; criminals included. Only those that possess Love in them will remain.

There is not any place on earth that is not dirtied with human or animal blood; she must therefore submit to a purification. And it is for this that certain continents will be immersed while others will surface.

Men do not suspect to what dangers they are menaced by. They continue to pursue futile objectives and to seek pleasure. On the contrary those of the sixth race will be conscious of the dignity of their role and respectful of each one's liberty. They will nourish themselves exclusively from products of the vegetal realm. Their ideas will have the power to circulate freely as the air and light of our days.

The words "If you are not born again." apply to the sixth race. Read Chapter 60 of Isaiah it relates to the coming of the sixth race the Race of Love.

After the Tribulations, men will cease to sin and will find again the path of virtue. The climate of our planet will be moderated everywhere and brutal variations will no longer exist. The air will once again become pure, the same for water. The parasites will disappear. Men will remember their previous incarnations and they will feel the pleasure of noticing that they are finally liberated from their previous condition.

In the same manner that one gets rid of the parasites and dead leaves on the vine, so act the evolved Beings to prepare men to serve the God of Love. They give to them good conditions to grow and to develop themselves, and to those that want to listen to them, they say: "Do not be afraid! Still a little more time and everything will be all right; you are on the good path. May he that wants to enter in the New Culture study, consciously work and prepare."

Thanks to the idea of Fraternity, the earth will become a blessed place, and that will not wait. But before, great sufferings will be sent to awaken the consciousness. Sins accumulated for thousands of years must be redeemed. The ardent wave emanating from On High will contribute in liquidating the karma of peoples.

The liberation can no longer be postponed. Humanity must prepare itself for great trials that are inescapable and are coming to bring an end to egoism.

Under the earth, something extraordinary is preparing itself. A revolution that is grandiose and completely inconceivable will manifest itself soon in nature. God has decided to redress the earth, and He will do it!

It is the end of an epoch; a new order will substitute the old, an order in which Love will reign on earth."

Chemical added to hot dogs, sausage and bacon now being developed by USDA as deadly bait that poisons wild hogs to death... and you're EATING it for breakfast!


Mike Adams

A preservative chemical that's routinely added to hot dogs, beef jerky, bacon and breakfast sausage is now being deployed by government researchers as a fatal bait to poison wild hogs to death. Development of the deadly hog poison is being pursued by none other than the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the same agency that legalizes the same toxic chemical to be used in processed meat products approved for human consumption.

The chemical, known as sodium nitrite, is a cancer-causing "color fixer" and meat preservative added to processed meat products to give them a pink hue that consumers mistake for being "fresh." When sodium nitrite combines with the hydrochloric acid (HCl) found in stomach acid, it forms cancer-causing nitrosamines. These nitrosamines go on to directly promote pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer, leukemia, brain tumors and other cancers throughout the body -- facts that I have been warning readers about for over a decade. Sodium nitrite is the reason why processed meats drastically raise the risks of cancer, heart disease and diabetes...

In the feral swine analysis published by the USDA, sodium nitrite is already labeled a "vertebrate pesticide" and its toxicological effects are described by the USDA as follows:

In brief, [sodium] nitrite causes methemoglobinemia, which results in rapid depletion of oxygen to the brain and vital organs. Pigs are highly susceptible to this mode of action because they lack methemoglobin reductase, the naturally occurring enzyme required to reverse the toxicosis. Nitrite causes a rapid death in domestic pigs in approximately 1 hour (IMVS 2010) and in feral pigs in 1.5 hours (Cowled et al. 2008a), with symptoms (detailed above) lasting less than 30 minutes (IMVS 2010). Nitrite toxicosis through methemoglobinemia has been independently assessed as humane (IMVS 2010)..

Physical Units Factor Tables (PUFT)


Enon Harris

The Physical Units Factor Tables organize 50 types of physical units by their factors of length, time, mass and charge so that the mathematical relationships between physical units are easy to see.

The Physical Units Factor Tables encourage anyone who can multiply and divide simple fractions to deduce equations in mechanics and electromagnetics .

The single-page  document is also marginally legible when printed in color on a single sheet of letter-size paper, but students and teachers with access to computers will likely find the electronic version easier on the eyes.

Each move left represents multiplication by length, each move down is division by time ( = multiplication by frequency). Similarly, moving right represents division by length and each move up represents multiplying by time. These factors are the same in all tables in the stack, with each lower table having an additional factor:
light blue table = * mass
green table       = * 1/charge
pink table         = * mass/charge
purple table      = * mass/charge^2

The names of the unit types are taken from Alan Eliasen's wonderful  calculator and physically-typed programming language, Frink. (Except for the ones whose top line is in parentheses; these names aren't listed in Frink, though it can easily compute using such quantities.)

Units types included: time, volume, area, length, dimensionless, linear spatial frequency, area spatial frequency, volume spatial frequency, flow, area per second, velocity, frequency, specific energy, acceleration, frequency squared, moment of inertia, kilogram-meters, mass, linear mass density, areal  mass density, mass density, angular momentum, momentum, mass flow, viscosity, energy, force, surface tension, pressure, power, heat flow density, magnetic field strength, current, electrical dipole moment, moment of inertia per coulomb, mass per charge, magnetic flux,
vector potential, magnetic flux density, electric potential, electric field strength, inductance, permeability, electric resistivity, electric resistance, inverse permittivity, inverse capacitance, electric  current  density, magnetic field strength, electrical dipole moment, magnetic moment, charge, linear charge density, surface charge density, electric charge density, temperature, thermal resistance, thermal resistivity, thermal insulance, thermal inductance , entropy, heat capacity, enthalpy, specific heat capacity, molar heat capacity, thermal capacitance, entropy flow, thermal conductivity

How bioceramics could help fight gum disease

Severe gum disease known as periodontitis can lead to tooth loss, and treating it remains a challenge. But new approaches involving silicon nitride, a ceramic material used in spinal implants, could be on the way. The surface of silicon nitride has a lethal effect on the bacteria that commonly cause periodontitis. Now scientists, reporting in ACS' journal Langmuir, are examining why this happens. Their findings could help inform future efforts to treat the disease.

About half of American adults have some form of gum disease. It's caused by bacteria that infect the tissue around teeth, resulting in gum inflammation. If the condition progresses, the bacteria can damage the bone that supports the teeth. In addition to tooth loss, periodontitis can increase a person's risk of heart attack or stroke. Options for treatment include scaling and root planing, topical antibiotics and surgery. Giuseppe Pezzotti and colleagues wanted to find a new alternative by studying the reactions of bacteria to antimicrobial silicon nitride.

The researchers investigated how the ceramic material changes the metabolism of Porphyromonas gingivalis -- the bacteria species primarily responsible for periodontitis. They found that chemical reactions at the surface cause the bacteria's nucleic acids to degrade and drastically reduce the amounts of certain proteins and fats. While further studies are needed, the results show silicon nitride holds promise as a therapeutic aid for treating severe gum disease.

Silicon Nitride Bioceramics Induce Chemically Driven Lysis inPorphyromonas gingivalis.

Giuseppe Pezzotti, Ryan M. Bock, Bryan J. McEntire, Erin Jones, Marco Boffelli, Wenliang Zhu, Greta Baggio, Francesco Boschetto, Leonardo Puppulin, Tetsuya Adachi, Toshiro Yamamoto, Narisato Kanamura, Yoshinori Marunaka, B. Sonny Bal.

Organisms of Gram-negative phylum bacteroidetes, Porphyromonas gingivalis, underwent lysis on polished surfaces of silicon nitride (Si3N4) bioceramics. The antibacterial activity of Si3N4 was mainly the result of chemically driven principles. The lytic activity, although not osmotic in nature, was related to the peculiar pH-dependent surface chemistry of Si3N4. A buffering effect via the formation of ammonium ions (NH4+) (and their modifications) was experimentally observed by pH microscopy. Lysis was confirmed by conventional fluorescence spectroscopy, and the bacteria’s metabolism was traced with the aid of in situ Raman microprobe spectroscopy. This latter technique revealed the formation of peroxynitrite within the bacterium itself. Degradation of the bacteria’s nucleic acid, drastic reduction in phenilalanine, and reduction of lipid concentration were observed due to short-term exposure (6 days) to Si3N4. Altering the surface chemistry of Si3N4 by either chemical etching or thermal oxidation influenced peroxynitrite formation and affected bacteria metabolism in different ways. Exploiting the peculiar surface chemistry of Si3N4 bioceramics could be helpful in counteracting Porphyromonas gingivalis in an alkaline pH environment.

This Startup Is Predicting the Future by Decoding the Past

At Predata, an Internet-scraping algorithm provides a glimpse of the future.

When James Shinn was working for the CIA as a senior East Asia expert more than a decade ago, he longed for the tools of a weatherman. He wanted to be able to predict that the chance of North Korea test-firing a missile within a month was, say, 60 percent. It remained a fantasy, he says, until now.

Shinn and his 14-person team at Predata have developed software that numerically describes political volatility and risk. It vacuums up vast quantities of data from online conversations and comments, compares them with past patterns, and spits out a probability. (A version of Predata’s service is accessible on the Bloomberg Professional service.) Shinn likens his product to sabermetrics, the statistics-driven baseball strategy popularized in Michael Lewis’s Moneyball. “By carefully gathering lots and lots of statistics on their past performance from all corners of the Internet, we are predicting how a large number of players on a team will bat or pitch in the future,” Shinn says, by way of analogy.

Predata doesn’t replace human analysts so much as offer them a new tool. Without people choosing what to follow, metadata scraping has limited use. Moreover, Shinn argues, while risk-analysis companies are increasingly offering clients numerical percentages, the data are often pulled from the air. “This is a machine-driven, carefully calculated risk index,” says Shinn, the company’s founder and chief executive officer. “There is no arbitrary scoring by a human analyst.”

Each day, Predata monitors about 1,000 Twitter feeds, 10,000 Wikipedia pages, 50,000 YouTube videos, and several dozen newspapers and magazines in some 200 countries. It covers 300 topics, including news about individual companies, the debate over the U.K. leaving the European Union, and interest rate decisions by central banks.

Historical data is paramount. For instance, Predata didn’t make a statistically useful prediction for the March 22 attacks in Brussels, in part because Belgium had experienced few such incidents. The software needs at least five previous events to find a correlation between digital conversations and an act of terrorism, according to Shinn. France, on the other hand, had witnessed 13 incidents prior to the Paris attacks on Nov. 13; the company says that its model indicated the likelihood of an event being at least 61 percent a month in advance. Similarly, on Dec. 27, Predata says it calculated a 68 percent chance that North Korea would engage in some activity regarding weapons of mass destruction within 45 days. Almost two weeks later, on Jan. 6, the Kim Jong Un regime conducted the nation’s fourth nuclear test.

Shinn, who served as an assistant secretary for East Asia at the U.S. Department of Defense after his CIA stint, began developing the technology in 2014 while teaching at his alma mater, Princeton, and serving on the advisory board of Kensho Technologies, an analytics software developer for investment management. Kensho’s CEO, Daniel Nadler, and Shinn experimented in their free time with a crude prototype that monitored online conversations among labor unions in South Africa, thinking the data offered a handle on the country’s volatility. They found that back-and-forth argumentation in English and Afrikaans on sites as public as the Wikipedia pages of the unions spiked before mining strikes, after which gold and platinum prices surged.

Shinn recruited one of his students, Andrew Choi, to build a more sophisticated algorithm, a part of which used a specification devised by the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, an organization that leads research into innovative technology under the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. “Predata is now sampling a larger, more complex pattern before and after events,” Choi says. “We are characterizing larger patterns of behavior by many people on the Internet and then looking for the recurrence of these patterns as ‘early warning’ that an event of that type is about to recur.”

Choi, now Predata’s chief technology officer, says the company can draw direct links from digital conversations to geopolitical volatility, and from there to collective actions such as strikes, protests, and troop movements. There was a surge of comments posted to news articles about Russia and Ukraine before Russia’s invasion of Crimea, for example, and a sharp rise in participants conversing on the French-language Wikipedia page for Islamic State before the Paris attacks. “There is a characteristic way that the narrative of a certain event is constructed before and after that event has taken place,” he says.

As the activity intensifies, Predata gathers the metadata—such as how many people edit a Wikipedia page about a terrorist attack and how quickly those edits are disputed—and retroactively matches the statistical signals against sets of historical events to predict the likelihood of similar events, Shinn says. “The Russians spend a lot of time and money molding the narrative about Russian intentions and actions, and the guys in Beijing do the same about the South China Sea.” The result, he says, is that actors leave footprints; their propaganda interests trump their desire for operational security.

Governments started using the first computational models in World War II to decode German messages and automate the targeting of anti-aircraft weapons. In the 1960s, corporations and research institutions began commercializing models for a variety of uses, from deciding credit risk to predicting the weather. The business has evolved into hundreds of companies pursuing three general approaches to managing risk and volatility: prioritizing new and better sources of data, focusing on better ways to condense data, and combining the two to forecast probability. Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen invested in Seattle-based BlackSky Global, which plans to launch a fleet of 60 satellites next year to scan most of the planet as many as 70 times a day. San Francisco-based Spaceknow combines the imagery of more than 6,000 industrial facilities with algorithms to create an index of China’s factory production. Companies such as Banjo, Cytora, and Dataminr monitor social media and the Internet to track events as close to real time as possible. They specialize in detecting riots or protests as soon as they’re reported on the Web, alerting clients to developments and making the information easily digestible.

Predata is alone so far in producing an algorithm-generated forecasting metric. The company is already broadening its findings, applying them to equity indexes, foreign exchange rates, commodities, and credit-default-swap spreads, and it says it’s found a correlation between the signals it measures and prices of various assets. Predata also tracks chatter about YouTube videos of central bank governors’ press conferences to predict rate decisions.

Kalev Leetaru, a senior fellow at George Washington University, started the GDELT Project in 2013, a free, publicly available database of all the world's media in print, broadcast and web formats in more than 100 languages, stretching back from Jan. 1, 1979 to present day. GDELT uses more than 40 algorithms to translate into English and process metadata from the media into tables, allowing individuals and organizations to run customized risk analytics. It also provides a real-time timeline measuring instability in countries, Leetaru said, adding that GDELT plans to roll out a series of prototype templates later this year, forecasting risk by location and type of volatile events.

One risk to Predata’s approach is the potential of being gamed by a savvy hostile party. Shinn and Choi argue, however, that the Internet’s “democratic checks and balances” and abundance of data points will keep Predata’s technology relatively safe from attempts to fool it. Says Choi, “It’s not even that you are trying to talk about a topic in a favorable light. It’s that you are talking about that topic at all—that’s a signal.”

Excellent Cycle Analysis-Prediction :

Bo Polny - Biblically Bad Economic Crash Coming

Cycle analyst Bo Polny says the time it takes the stock market to hit bottom from its prior top is getting shorter. The 2007 top to the 2009 bottom in the stock market took a little less than two years. The latest top happened in July of 2015, and Polny says this top to bottom crash will take half the time of the last crash. Polny predicts, “The next bottom will happen between now and this coming August. . . . This is going to be Biblically bad . . . . You are going to have a day where the Dow might drop 4,000 points . . . the next turn is going to be a crash low, and that’s supposed to come in the next few months. Being long in the market is crazy. We keep having lower highs. . . . Being long in the market is extremely dangerous.”

Polny closed by pointing out, “The reason for the crash will be because gold and silver will be exploding higher. That is going to create a huge derivative issue. That, then in turn, triggers the collapse and the meltdown of the stock market.”

Superbomb Ignites Science Dispute at Pentagon

...In January 1999, an international team led by [ Carl ] Collins claimed it had unleashed startling amounts of energy -- far more than theoretically expected - - from the hafnium-178 isomer. They did so, they reported in the journal Physical Review Letters, by bombarding the isotope with X-rays from an ordinary dental X-ray machine.

Besides Collins, the article's 13 co-authors included scientists at the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory in Albuquerque; Russia's Joint Institute for Nuclear Research; and Sandia National Laboratories, a nuclear weapons lab in New Mexico. Collins himself has a weighty reputation. A decade earlier, the Texas Academy of Sciences had named him "Distinguished Texas Scientist" of the year for his research on high-energy lasers.

Elsewhere, other scientists tried to replicate Collins' work by bombarding the isotope with radiation from large particle accelerators, which are far more powerful than the Collins team's dental X-ray machine. Results: negative.

One of Collins' original collaborators on the 1999 paper, nuclear physicist James Carroll of Youngstown State University, has since been unable to replicate the Collins experiment on his own. He suspects the energy-unleashing process "is more complex than (Collins) originally thought and needs further study," Carroll said in an interview.

Furthermore, scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory and Argonne National Laboratory found "no evidence" of unusual energy emissions from hafnium-178 exposed to X-rays at Argonne's hefty Advanced Photon Source accelerator, they reported in Physical Review Letters in 2001.

The hafnium-178 controversy was also investigated by the members of "Jason, " which has functioned for decades as a kind of supreme advisory council of military science. Mostly distinguished physical scientists based at universities and private companies, these scholars -- often collectively known as "the Jasons" -- use their expertise to critique the Pentagon's more ambitious schemes for expensive, futuristic weapons.


Claims that hafnium-178 can unleash intense energy are based on experiments that are "poorly characterized and ill-described," Jason member Steve Koonin wrote in 1999, summarizing the group's findings in a letter to the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency. The claims are "a priori implausible -- extraordinary claims demand extraordinary proof," but that's lacking so far, added Koonin, a nuclear physicist and provost of the California Institute of Technology.

"It is extraordinarily unlikely that there is something here" that portends a new generation of futuristic weapons, Koonin said in a phone interview. However, he noted that Collins and others have reported new results since 1999, and that he'd support a new Jason analysis if the Pentagon or Energy Department requested it.

Collins has stuck to his guns. In a number of e-mail responses to a Chronicle inquiry, he compared the critics to early 20th century naysayers who denied the feasibility of atomic energy.

Collins insists his findings have "been confirmed at about all of the world's third-generation (most advanced) synchrotron radiation sources, except the DOE facility at Argonne. . . . Naturally, that causes controversy, but it is a strength of the scientific method that continued study and measurement will resolve the controversy."

One reason some critics have been unable to verify his original claim, Collins said, is that their instrument was "blind" to one of the spectral lines, the so-called 130 line, that he used in measuring energy from hafnium- 178. Hence, "they could not possibly have seen the results" even "if they had succeeded in doing it."

But physicist John Becker of Lawrence Livermore said that to the best of his knowledge, no scientist has verified Collins' claim except Pat McDaniel, a researcher at Sandia who was one of Collins' original collaborators. McDaniel has not published his results, Becker said. McDaniel could not be reached for an interview.

"I don't think there's any controversy at all: We've done two experiments, and we cannot reproduce his (Collins') results," Becker said in an interview. The Becker team has used instruments that are "a hundred thousand times more sensitive" than Collins' dental X-ray machine, and "in spite of our best efforts, we cannot reproduce those results."

The Pentagon isn't discouraged by skeptics' doubts about the hafnium-178 isomer. In fact, it's trying to figure out how to mass produce the stuff. According to one knowledgeable source who insisted on anonymity, a full-scale hafnium-178 facility, if approved, "would probably (cost) tens to hundreds of millions of dollars."

At one Pentagon Web site, dubbed the Military Critical Technologies List, under the section titled "Armaments and Energetic Materials," the text explains that hafnium-178's reported "extraordinary energy density has the potential to revolutionize all aspects of warfare."

Recently, amid their post-Iraq-war anxieties over U.S. military and foreign policy, European media have sounded an alarm about possible hafnium-178 weapons. New Scientist, a respected popular science journal in England, ran a story on Aug. 13 declaring, "Gamma-ray Weapons Could Trigger Next Arms Race."

By coincidence, that same day, five members of the HIPP panel and 10 other experts signed a letter to federal officials citing "the numerous objections raised by the (Jasons) and others over any projected use of the hafnium isomer. " The letter urged the officials to launch an independent scientific review of the subject "before proceeding to study (military) applications that may not make physical sense."

Jim Kouri
NWV Senior Political News Writer

Visitors to conservative web sites may encounter problems accessing news stories and political commentary regarding the Republican Party, conservative issues and pro-Donald Trump postings thanks to a major Internet search engine company that also controls a top web browser that's successfully competing with Microsoft, Firefox, Safari and others.

According to a number of subscribers and readers of the conservative Internet publication,, readers are being falsely informed by a popular web browser, Google Chrome, that "malware" exists on the web site, specifically columns that address political and social issues from a conservative or libertarian perspective, according to several writers and the editor at NWV.

Readers attempting to access NWV content were met by warnings that falsely claimed "malware" that was hazardous to personal computers existed on the web site. A number of emails were received by the NWV editor complaining about the problem and saying they were fearful of damaging their desktop or laptop computers by accessing news stories and opinion columns.

For example, one of the top columnists, Kelleigh Nelson, who frequently writes on political issues had problems with readers not being able to access her opinion pieces appearing on NWV. Kelleigh is 100% pro Trump.

"A number of my readers [had] emailed me that when they tried to access my archived articles, a malware warning would always pop up. All of them were using Google Chrome when this happened," said Nelson. "I immediately alerted Paul Walter, Senior Editor of, and he did a virus check. Nothing showed as being malware within any of my archived articles."

Ms. Nelson believes that Google Chrome covertly putting these malware warnings on every article they politically disagree with, and she believes that NewsWithViews is not the only target. There are other websites being targeted, including The Marshall Report, and The Conservative Tree House. "If you want the truth in these and other articles, then use any other search engine and the articles and websites will come up, just not with Google Chrome," said Kelleigh Nelson

Following a lengthy investigation by the NWV editor, Paul Walter, it was confirmed that the "malware alerts" were the product of only one web browser: Google Chrome. All of the complaints regarding "malware alerts" were generated by readers who were Chrome browser users. Those readers using the other Internet browsers such as Firefox, Safari, Explorer, and other popular browsers were not experiencing this suspected form of censorship.

"It appears that Google Chrome is the only browser suspected of deceptive political activity that benefits the Democratic Party especially in this heated [presidential] election cycle," said political consultant and attorney Michael Baker. "In fact, other web sites are experiencing similar problems and they all trace them to Google Chrome."

Baker said that reputable news and information web sites such as Breitbart's series of web pages and the Conservative Base are also experiencing the same problems with Google Chrome. "It's a safe bet that if it's happening to these top sites, it's probably happening to the lesser-known sites with fewer visitors," he said.

When NWV senior editor Paul Walter received complaints from both readers and some columnists about the suspected malware hoax, he contacted his Internet hosting company on March 10, 2016 located in Los Angeles and N.J. for a complete examination of the web site and their dedicated server. The company reported conducting full scans and exams of NWV and found no evidence of there being any type of malware or virus within the system. NWV was given a clean-bill-of-health by the hosting company and yet, the complaints kept pouring in from all over the country about the malwere problem that didn't exist.

Walter said "I'm almost 100% certain that you won't be able to find this news article on the Google search engine."

In the case of another web site experiencing the exact same problem with malware alerts where there were none, Conservative Base which coincidentally, like NWV, supports the candidacy of GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump.

The Conservative Base’s webmaster, Ben Thole, also conducted virus scans and the like and also found there were no problems with the web site or the server. Thole is an experienced web site designer and webmaster who has worked for the Republican Party, celebrities and companies that require first-rate Internet coverage.

Besides the Chrome browser, when Internet users are conducting a search with Google’s search engine they are warned that the web site itself may harm your computer.

This is an actual example of those insidious messages that are designed to detour visitors to other web sites: *** columnist, Ron Ewart, President of the National Association of Rural Landowners, when he discovered the activities of Google, launched his own action against the media giant.

During a telephone conversation with this reporter, Mr. Ewart mentioned his own investigation and a column he will have published by NWV that reveals the political ties between the Democrat Party and the Google founders, Larry Page and Eric Schmidt. He also reports that there are thousands of Google employees who are also in cahoots with the Democrats:

“Few Silicon Valley companies have ever embraced a political party as passionately as Google has. Its executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, has been described as a "kind of guru" to President Obama's campaign manager, and Google employees emerged as the No. 2 donor to the Democratic National Committee in the last election,” stated Ewart.

Ewart also mentioned during the telephone interview with this NWV reporter that the Google Chrome Malware Alerts suddenly appeared on conservative articles right after Donald Trump, during a televised rally with 20-thousand cheering supporters, held up an article from the website that verified he assertion about media bias and the NWV website received an astounding 1,000,000 hits in just one day.

Efforts by NWV to contact Google and discuss these serious allegations met with negative results. The person who only gave the name “Heather” said the Google browser is not involved in politics.

However, Ron Ewart wrote a thorough letter to the Google executives Larry Page and Eric Schmidt, which he plans to publish on

“I hope conservatives will start to take action,” said Ewart. “The whole political system is corrupted and people must awaken and take action before ‘malware alerts’ will be the least of their problems,” he added.

Besides the covert activities suspected, a new Google Chrome “extension” allows users to scrub mentions and photos of Donald Trump from their browsing experience. Trump Filter is a Chrome extension that searches websites for references to the Republican presidential candidate and replaces it with a blank space.

“Eliminate Donald Trump from all your web browsing without leaving the Internet,” a description for Trump Filter boasts. “In a political atmosphere where ascendance can be manufactured through attention, the only way to deflate Trump’s political star is through suffocation. Trump can only lose if we turn off the TV.

“Thus, the Trump Filter is presented as part of the antidote for this toxic candidacy. This Chrome extension will identify parts of a web page likely to contain Donald Trump and erase them from the Internet. Share with your friends and eliminate the only currency Trump can spend to win: brand recognition,” the description reads.

“I hope folks will take this opportunity to learn more about the wide field of candidates out there,” Mr. Spectre told CNN.

Lossless Electric Current

Aaron Murakami

Ferromagnetic properties allow electric current to flow over the surface of special films but normally only under very low temperatures.

Something of great importance is that this electric current is generated spontaneously and without any kind of external magnetic field – electric current without magnetism.

Using Cr as an atomic sized magnet and Sb and Te to  help “glue” their alignment into place, apparently allows this electric current to be not only lossless but at room temperature.

Senior DARPA Scientist Warns of Widespread LETHAL ATTACKS Upon the Public Coming From Microwave Towers

Former DARPA Senior Scientist, Dr. Paul Batcho, asserts that cell phone towers pose an intentional and immediate lethal threat against the general public of the United States…

I would like to bring to your attention an ongoing threat with regards to harmful communications transmitting from the cellular towers in central Florida, and Tampa St Petersburg. It is not clear to me whether it is due to the USCENTCOM in Tampa or it is targeting US civilians…

I seem to have stumbled across an advanced technology that I would classify as synthetic telepathy. It clearly uses the cellular towers to transmit illegal signals. It sounds unbelievable but it is actual technology being used on civilians of the US.

My basic research does indicate that such technology can exist and dates back to the V2K (P300) mind wave technology of the 1970s. This does appear to be a much more advanced version that allows open communication of human mind to mind bridges.

Please forward my email to the appropriate DoD security office and I would like the issue investigated. Human brains appear to transmit and receive at the RF bands around 450MHz and microwave transmissions can be highly damaging in turns of induced bio-effects...

The technology being used is clearly based on the methods outlined in the following patents based on microwave transmission directed at human brain frequencies.

The active technology has been in use for approximately 3 1/2 years, roughly corresponding to the expiry of the 1992 and 1994 patents funded by DARPA, US Patent # 5,123,844 & US Patent # 5,289,438.

These systems stimulate the brain with RF frequencies and wave forms.This is not CDMA 450MHz:450MHz-470MHz transmissions.

There is unlawful use of the various lethal aspects of the technology.  The technology is active and civilians are being targeted with harmful health effects.

Please investigate the transmission of the various frequency signals in the 450 MHz range. The band from 437MHz to 478Mhz with peaks at roughly 6 MHz intervals appear to have sizable spectral energy components.

Anthropogenic Radio-Frequency Electromagnetic Fields Elicit Neuropathic Pain in an Amputation Model

Bryan Black ,  Rafael Granja-Vazquez , Benjamin R. Johnston , Erick Jones, Mario Romero-Ortega


Anecdotal and clinical reports have suggested that radio-frequency electromagnetic fields (RF EMFs) may serve as a trigger for neuropathic pain. However, these reports have been widely disregarded, as the epidemiological effects of electromagnetic fields have not been systematically proven, and are highly controversial. Here, we demonstrate that anthropogenic RF EMFs elicit post-neurotomy pain in a tibial neuroma transposition model. Behavioral assays indicate a persistent and significant pain response to RF EMFs when compared to SHAM surgery groups. Laser thermometry revealed a transient skin temperature increase during stimulation. Furthermore, immunofluorescence revealed an increased expression of temperature sensitive cation channels (TRPV4) in the neuroma bulb, suggesting that RF EMF-induced pain may be due to cytokine-mediated channel dysregulation and hypersensitization, leading to thermal allodynia. Additional behavioral assays were performed using an infrared heating lamp in place of the RF stimulus. While thermally-induced pain responses were observed, the response frequency and progression did not recapitulate the RF EMF effects. In vitro calcium imaging experiments demonstrated that our RF EMF stimulus is sufficient to directly contribute to the depolarization of dissociated sensory neurons. Furthermore, the perfusion of inflammatory cytokine TNF-α resulted in a significantly higher percentage of active sensory neurons during RF EMF stimulation. These results substantiate patient reports of RF EMF-pain, in the case of peripheral nerve injury, while confirming the public and scientific consensus that anthropogenic RF EMFs engender no adverse sensory effects in the general population.

First injectable nanoparticle generator could radically transform metastatic breast cancer treatment

Landmark preclinical study cured lung metastases in 50 percent of breast cancers by making nanoparticles inside the tumor

A team of investigators from Houston Methodist Research Institute may have transformed the treatment of metastatic triple negative breast cancer by creating the first drug to successfully eliminate lung metastases in mice. This landmark study appears today in Nature Biotechnology (early online edition).

The majority of cancer deaths are due to metastases to the lung and liver, yet there is no cure. Existing cancer drugs provide limited benefit due to their inability to overcome biological barriers in the body and reach the cancer cells in sufficient concentrations. Houston Methodist nanotechnology and cancer researchers have solved this problem by developing a drug that generates nanoparticles inside the lung metastases in mice.

In this study, 50 percent of the mice treated with the drug had no trace of metastatic disease after eight months. That’s equivalent to about 24 years of long-term survival following metastatic disease for humans.

Due to the body’s own defense mechanisms, most cancer drugs are absorbed into healthy tissue causing negative side effects, and only a fraction of the administered drug actually reaches the tumor, making it less effective, said Mauro Ferrari, Ph.D, president and CEO of the Houston Methodist Research Institute. This new treatment strategy enables sequential passage of the biological barriers to transport the killing agent into the heart of the cancer. The active drug is only released inside the nucleus of the metastatic disease cell, avoiding the multidrug resistance mechanism of the cancer cells. This strategy effectively kills the tumor and provides significant therapeutic benefit in all mice, including long-term survival in half of the animals.

This finding comes 20 years after Ferrari started his work in nanomedicine. Ferrari and Haifa Shen, M.D., Ph.D., are co-senior authors on the paper, which describes the action of the injectable nanoparticle generator (iNPG), and how a complex method of transporting a nano-version of a standard chemotherapy drug led to never before seen results in mice models with triple negative breast cancer that had metastasized to the lungs.

“This may sound like science fiction, like we’ve penetrated and destroyed the Death Star, but what we discovered is transformational. We invented a method that actually makes the nanoparticles inside the cancer and releases the drug particles at the site of the cellular nucleus. With this injectable nanoparticle generator, we were able to do what standard chemotherapy drugs, vaccines, radiation, and other nanoparticles have all failed to do,” said Ferrari.

Houston Methodist has developed good manufacturing practices (GMP) for this drug and plans to fast-track the research to obtain FDA-approval and begin safety and efficacy studies in humans in 2017.

“I would never want to overpromise to the thousands of cancer patients looking for a cure, but the data is astounding,” said Ferrari, senior associate dean and professor of medicine, Weill Cornell Medicine. “We’re talking about changing the landscape of curing metastatic disease, so it’s no longer a death sentence.”

The Houston Methodist team used doxorubicin, a cancer therapeutic that has been used for decades but has adverse side effects to the heart and is not an effective treatment against metastatic disease. In this study, doxorubicin was packaged within the injectable nanoparticle generator that is made up of many components.  

Shen, a senior member of the department of nanomedicine at Houston Methodist Research Institute, explains that each component has a specific and essential role in the drug delivery process. The first component is the nanoporous silicon material that naturally degrades in the body. The second component is a polymer made up of multiple strands that contain doxorubicin. Once inside the tumor, the silicon material degrades, releasing the strands. Due to natural thermodynamic forces, these strands curl-up to form nanoparticles that are taken up by the cancer cells. Once inside the cancer cells, the acidic pH close to the nucleus causes the drug to be released from the nanoparticles. Inside the nucleus, the active drug acts to kill the cell.

“If this research bears out in humans and we see even a fraction of this survival time, we are still talking about dramatically extending life for many years. That’s essentially providing a cure in a patient population that is now being told there is none,” said Ferrari, who holds the Ernest Cockrell Jr. Presidential Distinguished Chair and is considered one of the founders of nanomedicine and oncophysics (physics of mass transport within a cancer lesion).

The Houston Methodist team is hopeful that this new drug could help cancer physicians cure lung metastases from other origins, and possibly primary lung cancers as well.

Additional researchers who collaborated with Ferrari and Shen on the Nature Biotechnology paper were: Rong Xu, Guodong Zhang, Junhua Mai, Xiaoyong Deng, Victor Segura-Ibarra, Suhong Wu, Jianliang Shen, Haoran Liu, Zhenhua Hu, Lingxiao Chen, Yi Huang, Eugene Koay, Yu Huang, Elvin Blanco, and Xuewu Liu (Department of Nanomedicine, Houston Methodist Research Institute, Houston, Texas); Jun Liu (Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, The University of Texas-Houston Medical School); and Joe Ensor (Houston Methodist Cancer Center, Houston, Texas).

The work was supported by grants from Department of Defense (W81XWH-09-1-0212 and W81XWH-12-1-0414), National Institute of Health (U54CA143837 and U54CA151668), and The Cockrell Foundation.

‘More effective than other drugs’: Russian company says it has revolutionized cancer treatment

Russian pharmaceutical group Biocad has introduced a breakthrough new cancer drug, with early tests suggesting it is more effective in battling the disease than foreign analogues, the company says.

The new drug activates inner powers to fight cancer, the company’s press release said. It was created on the base of monoclonal antibodies, and blocks interactions between the proteins PD-1 and PD-L1, which mask tumor cells as healthy ones. After the neutralization of PD-1, the organism starts to recognize cancer cells and eliminate them.

“The development of drugs for immunotherapy is an innovational approach to curing oncological diseases,” said Roman Ivanov, Deputy CEO for Biomedical Studies and Development, according to a press release published on Biocad’s website.

“Such drugs have a systematic effect on the whole tumor process, destroying not only the tumor itself but also its metastases including remote ones,” he added, stressing that unlike chemotherapy, such treatment does not damage healthy body tissue.

There are currently only two anti-cancer medicines based on monoclonal antibodies – developed by MSD and Bristol-Myers Sqibb – but both of them are not available in Russia. Moreover, clinical tests revealed that Biocad’s drug is more effective than its foreign analogues, the company claimed.

Biocad researchers hope that their drug will allow the survival rates of metastatic stage melanoma patients to increase from 10 to 30-40 percent. They also believe the treatment will be effective against lung and renal (kidney) cell cancer.

Preliminary tests were conducted on primates, and were carried out all last year, the company’s press release said.

Currently, the new drug is being prepared for clinical tests, with cancer patients from all over the world set to take part. Russians would be the first to have access to the breakthrough therapy, and the treatment should become available in 2018-2019, researchers say.

Researchers across the world are searching for effective cancer treatment, and have offered various methods of fighting the deadly disease. Last May UK scientists said they had created a modified herpes-based virus that can kill cancer cells. In January Australian researchers said they had successfully tested a drug targeting protein that helps cancer cells survive.

Scientists hail creation of 'flu trap' in effort to stop spread of infection

A "flu trap" that captures viruses could help prevent the spread of infection, scientists claim.

Researchers at the University of Manchester have developed a fabric coating for masks and air filters that isolates the viral particles responsible for influenza.

The technology mimics carbohydrate structures on the surfaces of cells lining respiratory airways and the oesophagus, or food pipe.

Paul Hope, director of the biotec company Virustatic that is seeking to commercialise the idea, said: "It's a whole new preventative approach to disease and if implemented could be transformative."

"We're now at the stage where we're looking for strategic partners to take this technology forwards in terms of developing new products."

The team found a way to anchor sugary glycoproteins first to carbon cloth and then cheaper materials such as cotton.

The molecules were able to capture and trap more than 99% of the flu viruses that came into contact with them.

Dr Ian Rowles, from the University of Manchester, said: "This has been an exciting collaboration with Virustatic, and our research does indeed show that this technology can slow the spread of flu viruses.

"We hope that eventually we'll be able tackle all pathogens by using this technology. So watch this space."

The scientists aim to develop the technology further to capture other potentially deadly viruses such as those responsible for Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (Mers) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (Sars).

Fake Shark Skin Could Make Navy Fleet Faster


Robert Roy Britt

Few creatures spawn more fear than sharks. But these complex fish also have provided inspiration for several useful technologies. One new idea has captured the interest of the U.S. Navy.

Shark skin has been used by many cultures as sandpaper. It's kept shipmates safe in slippery-when-wet conditions. Swimsuits modeled on shark skin are said by Speedo to reduce drag by up to 4 percent.

Now, research by two separate groups could lead to synthetic shark skin that would make ships and submarines faster and less expensive to operate.

Shark skin has been used by many cultures as sandpaper. It's kept shipmates safe in slippery-when-wet conditions. Swimsuits modeled on shark skin are said by Speedo to reduce drag by up to 4 percent.
Now, research by two separate groups could lead to synthetic shark skin that would make ships and submarines faster and less expensive to operate.

If the research pans out, submarines -- already stealthy and shark-like -- could become even more so.

The problem

The growth of barnacles, mussels, algae and other organisms adds to fuel costs for the military and shipping industry, increasing drag by up to 15 percent, scientists say. In the industry, it's called bio-fouling.

The Navy spends about $600 million each year to power ships and submarines. At least $50 million of that cost is directly related to bio-fouling, says Navy scientist Stephen McElvany.

Paints laced with deadly biocides curb the problem, but they are also toxic to other marine life.

Some fish, and also whales, are fouled by hitchhiking marine life. But not sharks. Scientists have figured out that the secret to clean sharks is in the complex design of their scales.

Amazing scales

Shark scales are made of a hard material called dentin. Basically, the scales are tiny teeth. They all point backward, so a shark would feel smooth if you dared to stroke it from head to tail, but rough if you ran your hand the other way.

Studies have found that the scales act as armor for a shark and also create tiny vortices that reduce drag to make them faster. The scales also allow sharks to swim silently compared to other fish that generate considerable noise when they ply the water.

The design has proved useful to humans in many ways.

Norwegians applied real shark skin to the soles of their boots to prevent slippage on wet ship decks. In the 2000 Olympics, swimmers began wearing full-body suits modeled on shark skin.

Now, research by two separate groups could lead to synthetic shark skin that would make ships and submarines faster and less expensive to operate.

If the research pans out, submarines -- already stealthy and shark-like -- could become even more so.

What's good for the shark ...

Importantly, shark scales flex individually, constantly changing and limiting the amount of exposed surface area on which organisms can attach, scientists have learned.

Ralph Liedert of the University of Applied Sciences in Bremen, Germany has developed a synthetic shark skin of elastic silicone that similarly reduces the contact surface, making it harder for barnacles to gain a foothold.

While simpler in design than shark scales, the ship skin reduced bio-fouling by 67 percent in tests, Liedert will report this week at the Society for Experimental Biology's annual meeting in Barcelona.

Mussels and barnacles make some of the strongest adhesives known (other scientists try to mimic the properties to make better household glue). But the glue of a barnacle, Liedert found, can only penetrate so far into a rough surface, explaining why the scales prevent them from sticking.

With the fake skin applied, a ship moving at 4-5 knots becomes self-cleaning, removing most organisms, Liedert found.

Military interest

In separate work funded in part by the U.S. Navy, scientists at the University of Florida have developed a similar coating, made of tiny diamond-shaped scales that flex in and out to impede the growth of organisms.

The coating was tested in a lab using a common algae. The algae's spores had a very hard time attaching to the surface.

"It normally sticks to everything, but we have reduced spore settlement by 85 percent," said Anthony Brennan, a University of Florida professor of materials science. "The only place the spores land right now is where we have a defect in the pattern."

While the high-tech skins could reduce costs for the shipping industry, they could prove a strategic advantage for the military.

McElvany called the finding “exciting" but said there are still challenging research hurdles to clear before the technology could be deployed.

"If achieved, this improved coating could not only be exempt from future environmental constraints and regulations, it would also provide increased fuel efficiency and velocity of Navy vessels," McElvany said.

Fukushima’s Dark Secret: Keshe Tech


Ian Greenhalgh

Whistleblower Reveals Hard Evidence: Keshe foundation Tech Being Used to Clean Fukushima Contamination in Japan. Government and Industry in Japan Suppressing this Truth!

In the latest Keshe Foundation Workshop (March 24.2016) evidence is presently by a Fukushima whistleblower/insider that Keshe tech has and is being used to clean radioactivity out of Fukushima. Keshe stated, two years ago, that he contacted government/industry in Japan and offered his tech to help with the clean-up.

Photographs and testimony is given by a Fukushima insider/whistleblower that Keshe GANS tech is/was being used …THIS VALIDATES KESHE TECH.

Keshe tech is being used to purify the radioactively contaminated water in Fukushima.

Keshe told us years ago that his tech was being used, but the companies and government in Japan refused to acknowledge or give Keshe any credit.

They also fired the person who was the go between Keshe foundation and the companies doing the clean up – Tepco and other companies. Here is the link to the workshop:

The whistleblower was shown initial tests of Keshe tech in Fukushima and was told not to speak about it… but he is now speaking out because of the injustice.

Initially, mice were tested with “CO2 gans” in their daily diet (contaminated mice)…THEY ALL RECOVERED, THEY ALL DID NOT DIE. The mice were given contaminated water….some with CO2 gans in the water, others without it…. the GANS MICE RECOVERED, the mice that were not given GANS died. The water was highly contaminated and put on the mouse food, absorbed into the food…

Paul's motor proves that magnets are indeed a source of energy. If all input can be accounted for in heat and resistive losses, then the rotor is turning for free. The only other source of potential energy that is doing work are magnets. Paul explained much of the basic operating premise and theory of his motor in Magnetic Energy Secrets Parts 1, 2 & 3 here:

It is highly recommended that you study Paul Babcock's work in this area because it is very important to the entire breakthrough energy movement. He keeps it simple, uses nothing more than basic algebra and shares concepts in down to earth ways that most people can understand.

Apparatus and associated methods involve thrust generation by interaction of an armature field with a stator field in an arrangement with substantially reduced flux coupling from the armature to the stator coil. In an illustrative example, solenoid coil segments may be arranged as the stator along a path of motion for the armature. In some examples, each armature may surround and overlap with at least one of the toroidal coil segments. Counter-electromotive force may be substantially reduced, for example, by stopping current flow in a stator coil while overlapped by the armature or while substantial armature flux couples to the stator coil. Thrust may be generated, in some examples, by interaction of armature and stator coil flux in arc-shaped regions external to and between each of the leading and trailing edges of the armature and their respective nearby stator coils.

Sorry no...I never heard or read that claim before and would take it with a big block of salt as to being was long ago (15 years now) but I recall when Grebennikov wrote me he said this was his first and only edition of this book...and gave me permission to translate and print in english if I wanted to...

Where did you get this bit of information?  There are so many flakes and liars on the net who are looking for their 15 minutes of fame...who make up stories that have no basis in fact.  The ONLY part of the book, that is the only edition I am aware of, contained Chapter 5 which my friends paid $300 to have translated and let me post it at;

The Natural Phenomena of AntiGravitation and Invisibility in Insects due to the Grebennikov Cavity Structure Effect (CSE);

I have seen many faked videos claiming to have discovered the bug but some have no audio so the effects shown could easily be faked with compressed air off camera...or magnets or electrostatics.

No one believed any of it and it took me a few weeks for everything to come together and in the case of Davidson, it took me 6 months to convince him there might be something there.  Now he runs with it like he found it and is closest to figuring it out.  Not a clue.

Grebennikov's Flying Platform - Bio-Gravitics ;

I have also seen wild stories that make no sense...I offered Greb $1000US to send me just two of the insect shells.  I don't even need the name of the bug.  We could first verify the shells do actually repel, use an electron microscope to determine unique geometry (star, triangle, tetrahedron?) and we know it is dielectric chitin, we should be able to duplicate the effect in sheets....based on claims in Chapter 5 (V) in the book;

"How and why did I come to this discovery? In the summer of 1988, as I was examining under a microscope the chitin shells of insects, their pinnate (feathery) feelers, and the thinnest structure of butterflies' wings, I got interested in an amazingly rhythmical microstructure of one large insect detail.

It was an extremely well-ordered composition, as though pressed on a complex machine according to special blueprints and calculations. As I saw it, the intricate sponginess was clearly not necessary either for the durability of the detail, or for its decoration. I had never observed anything like this unusual micro-ornament either in nature, in technology, or in art.

Because its structure is three-dimensional, so far I have been unable to capture it in a drawing, or a photograph. Why does an insect need it? Besides, other than in flight, this structure at the bottom of the wing case is always hidden from the eye-no one would ever see it properly.

Was it perhaps the wave beacon with "my" multiple cavernous structures effect? That truly lucky summer there were very many insects of this species, and I would capture them at night: neither before, nor after was I able to observe these insects.

I put the small, concave chitin plate on the microscope shelf in order again to examine under strong magnification its strangely star-shaped cells. I again admired this masterpiece of nature, and almost purposelessly placed it on top of another, identical plate that had the same unusual cells on one of its sides.

But no!-the detail broke loose from my tweezers; for a few seconds it hung suspended above the other plate on the microscope shelf, turned a few degrees clockwise, slid to the right, turned counterclockwise, swung, and only then abruptly fell on the desk.

You can imagine what I felt at that moment... When I came to my senses, I tied a few panels with a wire-it wasn't an easy thing to do, and I only succeeded when I positioned them vertically. What I got was a multi-layered chitin block. I put it on the desk.

Even a relatively large object-such as a paper tack-could not fall on it-something pushed it up and aside.

When I attached the tack on top of the "block", I witnessed such incredible, impossible things (for example, the tack for a few moments was lost from sight) that I realized it was no beacon, but something else entirely.

And again I got so excited that all the objects around me became foggy and shaky. It was with a huge effort that I managed to pull myself together in a couple of hours and continue working.

So, this is how it started. Of course, much still remains to be understood, verified, and tested. I will certainly tell my readers about the finer details of my machine, about its propulsion principles, about distances, heights, speeds, equipment, and all the rest-but in my next book."

I wrote him two letters in Russian and sent a thick packet of science articles that backed up the idea that there could be natural materials which could deflect much of it as I could I had translated to Russian.

I explained to him my theory that he used something like flat wood popsicle sticks on which he glued the concave shells, roughly 10 per stick all facing up like mini satellite dishes...these popsicle sticks were connected with a control rod which could be turned to cause them to open up like a japanese fan.

The idea being that gravity is a pushing effect of the aether/zpe into matter...and it comes into the earth and all masses in lines like magnetic flux lines...the more lines you cross, the more reaction you get.

When this japanese fan with all the concave shells are folded closed...they only block a few lines...but when you open it up, you cover more area, and thus block more lines to give you a controlled local gravity repulsion.

I explained to him I thought he mounted 4 of these japanese fan 'blocks' as he calls at each corner, underneath the platform.

The control handles were like motorcycle handgrips, connected to the japanese fans...

When you turn the handle on one side (right or left), it opens the two japanese fans in front....the other handle opens the two fans in back...

You can open them a little bit to control your height or open all four of them all the way to achieve maximum lift with the maximum height of 1,000 feet based on his weight and the lifting capacity of the number of shells he had.

Once in the air, to move forward, you partially close the two fans in front, which will cause the platform to tilt and move can tilt your weight to either side to go left or right, like riding a surfboard.

Grebennikov wrote back and said that was exactly how it worked.

So I would like to know where you chanced on the idea there was more than one version of his book and that the missing one contained full details about the platform.

I have seen a few articles which had far more details which I thought came from his papers and magazine articles.   I have not collected those and I guess I should in order to add to what is posted on Keelynet.

Here is it, some 15 years later and we are no further along in discovering which insect he was using or understanding the effect enough to duplicate it using other methods.  So much for the genius of humans.

Maybe if we put all the known information on Grebennikovs story and whatever correlations or other antigrav and physics info we had into an artificial intelligence program, it might be able to extrapolate a testable hypothesis or two.

I would like to know where you got the story about there being other versions of the book.  All I know of is one or two magazine articles that had what they claimed was Grebennikov explaining how his platform was controlled (which sounded bogus to me).  I'm not sure I copied the file when I was there.  Thanks!

Innovative cattle farmer feeds 4,000+ pounds of beef from a space the size of a closet



Recently I came across the journal of a farmer who made a pretty amazing claim. He said that he could grow more than enough food for his 4 beef cattle in just the size of a large bedroom closet.

At first, I didn’t believe it was physically possible, but then I saw the pictures and was completely blown away. Not only was he growing enough food to support more than 4,000 pounds of cattle, he also was producing surplus food for other livestock. His unique method has cut his food cost to raise cattle by a staggering 60% to 90% once all costs are accounted. He might not say it, but what he’s doing could be nothing short of revolutionary.

The whole system he’s built to feed his cattle is much more simple than you think. So shockingly simple that most people might be able to get most of it up and running after a trip to the hardware store.

Vertical farming for beef production

The secret is in something called “Vertical farming”. Recently, Japan has made headlines stating that they could feed a city of millions of people by vertical farming in a retrofitted skyscraper. Vertical farming is somewhat similar to aqua-phonic farming, however it is much more dense. Literally thousands of plants can be contained in a small room simply because you’re stacking multiple layers of plants on top of each other.

Each tray may not look like much, but they contain vitamin-rich, extremely calorie dense barley sprouts. Barley sprouts contain an amazing amount of energy and calories that not only help cattle gain weight, but is also said to produce the best tasting beef in the world (At least according to Canada).

The barley grows like a weed once it's exposed to the right conditions. So much so that it actually deprives the room of co2 and produces significant amounts of oxygen.

The barley grows like a weed once it’s exposed to the right conditions. So much so that it actually deprives the room of co2 and produces significant amounts of oxygen. It takes only 6-8 days for the seeds to sprout an produce an abundance of nutritional value.
The mat of barley is cut into blocks and fed to cattle.

The mat of barley is cut into blocks and fed to cattle.

Many interesting side-effects have been noticed with the introduction of the vitamin-rich replacement diet.

Interesting story about the Chickens…

They (The people who introduced us to sprouting) have a single Americana bird that is about 14 years old and belongs to another of their daughters as a pet since she was little. A few months after they started feeding just the fodder they started getting little green eggs again, after not seeing eggs from that hen for the last 5 years or so. Pretty impressive. We have also noticed that after being on the fodder for a while, you just about need a hatchet to get the shells open, so they are getting plenty of calcium too.
What’s so impressive is that the barley for the animals is being grown in a purpose-built shed that’s only 8×8 feet big. Even more amazing is that less than half of the shed is being fully utilized for growing the barley.

A normal cow’s diet consists either of grass (hay) or corn. A normal cow that is fed corn its entire life may require up to 2,800 pounds of corn before it is butchered. This amount of corn will typically require *about* 14,550 square feet of farmland. This is extraordinarily high compared to the 4 square feet required for the barley sprouting operation. However corn-fed beef can’t hold a candle in terms of space required to feed compared to grass fed beef which ranges from 1-4 acres per cow (43,650sf to 174,600sf respectively).

Of course, it still takes normal acreage to grow the barley in the first place. However the space is generally quite low due to the fact that the sprouts are so dense in nutrition. The results of sprouting seem to indicate that you can take raise a cattle on LESS than 400 pounds of barley. This compared to 2,500 pounds of corn is a pretty amazing difference. The gain is still huge even considering the lower bushels-per-acre yield of barley vs corn (49.5bu/ac for barley and 150bu/ac for corn).

Foods Packed With This Pigment Linked To Younger Biological Age



Carotenoids are a class of more than 600 naturally occurring pigments mostly synthesized by plants. These richly colored molecules are the sources of the yellow, orange, and red colors found in many fruits and vegetables. A new study from Seoul National University in Korea showed that increased level of blood carotenoids slow cellular aging.

Carotenoids are neither vitamins nor phytochemicals, but are proving to be very important for health. Dietary carotenoids are thought to provide health benefits in decreasing the risk of disease, particularly certain cancers and eye disease. The carotenoids that have been most studied in this regard are beta-carotene, lycopene, lutein, and zeaxanthin. In part, the beneficial effects of carotenoids are thought to be due to their role as antioxidants. beta-Carotene may have added benefits due its ability to be converted to vitamin A. Carotenoids benefit our skin and reduce cancer risk.

Data from the 1999-2002 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) indicated that doubling levels of the carotenoids alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin were associated with 2% longer telomeres, DNA sequences at the end of chromosomes that shorten as cells replicate and age.

The findings, published in the European Journal of Nutrition, show only correlation and not causation, and therefore some caution must be exercised when interpreting the data. Despite this, the researchers noted: "[The findings] suggest that carotenoids have a protective effect on telomere loss and that a high intake of these carotenoids may potentially prevent or delay the aging process and age-related diseases."...

The Korean scientists used data from 3660 participants of NHANES and found that blood alpha-carotene, beta-carotene (trans+ cis) and beta-cryptoxanthin were significantly associated with 1.76%, 2.22% and 2.02% longer telomeres, respectively.

On the other hand, blood lutein/zeaxanthin and trans-lycopene did not show any statistical significance, said the researchers.

In addition, compared to the lowest average levels of alpha-carotene, beta-carotene (trans+ cis) and beta-cyptoxanthin, the telomere length increased from 5-8% in the highest average carotenoid levels.

Association between leukocyte telomere length and serum carotenoid in US adults

Kyoung-Bok Min, Jin-Young Min


Purpose: Telomere length is a biomarker for aging. It is known that oxidative stress can accelerate telomere shortening, whereas antioxidants can delay their shortening. Carotenoids as antioxidants are favorably associated with health- and aging-related diseases caused by oxidative stress, but their association with telomere length is less certain. We investigated the association between blood carotenoid levels and leukocyte telomere length in a representative sample of US adults. Methods: We analyzed 3660 participants aged 20 years and older in the 1999-2002 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. The levels of carotenoids-alpha-carotene, beta-carotene (trans + cis), beta-cryptoxanthin, combined lutein/zeaxanthin, and trans-lycopene-were measured using high-performance liquid chromatography. The leukocyte telomere length (T/S ratio) was assayed using the quantitative polymerase chain reaction method. Results: A doubling of blood alpha-carotene, beta-carotene (trans + cis), and beta-cryptoxanthin was associated with approximately 2 % longer telomeres. Compared with the lowest carotenoid quartile of alpha-carotene, beta-carotene (trans + cis), and beta-cryptoxanthin, telomere length for adults with the highest quartiles was significantly increased by 5-8 %. Conclusion: We found that increasing levels of blood carotenoid were significantly associated with longer leukocyte telomeres in US adults. High intake of carotenoid-rich food may play a role in protecting telomeres and regulating telomere length.

First-of-its-kind cataract surgery using stem cells shows promise


Mary Brophy Marcus

A new form of cataract surgery using a patient's stem cells has restored vision in babies for the first time, and someday the technique may hold promise for millions of older Americans who undergo traditional cataract eye surgery every year, say scientists who developed the new procedure.

Eye experts across the country who spoke with CBS News are alternately excited and cautious about the findings, published Wednesday in the journal Nature.

The procedure, developed by researchers at the University of California San Diego and China, is less invasive than traditional cataract treatment, said the scientists.

Cataracts are most common in older adults. As most people age, an opaque film slowly forms over the lens -- the part of the eye that helps with focusing on images at various distances. It clouds vision and can lead to blindness.

In cataract surgery, which has been around for several decades, eye surgeons make an incision in the front of the eye and remove the lens from its supporting capsule. Then they replace it with an artificial lens.

The new procedure described in Nature involves making a slim incision at the side of the lens capsule, removing the entire lens, yet preserving the empty capsule bag or "scaffold." A certain kind of stem cell, called endogenous stem/progenitor cells, when left intact, then begins to repopulate the damaged lens and essentially grow a new, healthy lens.

Study author Dr. Kang Zhang, the chief of ophthalmic genetics at UC San Diego's Shiley Eye Institute, told CBS News, "Unlike [the] current way of cataract surgery, which destroys over half of lens stem cells and requires implantation of a plastic intranet ocular lens, we devised a new surgery to make a very small opening at the side of a cataractous lens bag, remove [the] cataract inside, allow the opening to heal, and promote dormant lens stem cells to regrow an entirely new lens with vision."

Pioneering surgery tested in babies

The experimental procedure was done in 12 infants who were born with a congenital cataract condition.

By using a less invasive procedure, Zhang and his colleagues report that they were able to leave the lens epithelial stem cells, also called LECs, intact. These LECs regenerated the eye's lens in the children, eliminating the need for implants. The same technique was also successfully performed in animals.

In little ones with congenital cataracts, eye surgeons need to intervene early so that light can get to the brain and allow for normal, healthy growth, said Suraj Bhat, associate professor of ophthalmology and director of the Vision Molecular Biology Laboratory at the UCLA Stein Eye Institute. Bhat was not involved in the new research, but said it's "extremely exciting" because it offers an alternative to "an extraordinarily invasive" procedure.

"In early childhood cataracts are very bad. We need light to enter into the eyes at a young age to get proper brain function, otherwise, information does not get transferred to the developing brain," said Bhat.

Traditional surgery can cause opacity in the line of a child's vision and, because the eye is still growing, it is difficult to provide good vision with eye glasses, explained Julie T. Daniels, from University College London Institute of Ophthalmology, in an accompanying commentary in Nature.

Many children also later go on to suffer from glaucoma.

Daniels wrote that to correctly refract light onto the retina at the back of the eye, the cornea and lens must remain transparent throughout life. Current treatments for the cornea and lens involve donor transplants or artificial implants, but the procedures can be risky. She said the new procedure, which coaxes stem cells to regenerate normal tissue in the body, offers promise.

"The study's stem cell engineering has led to the regeneration of transparent lens tissue in children, showing that the concept offers a potential therapeutic approach," Daniels wrote.

She noted a second study in Nature that used transplant tissue grown in the laboratory from stem cells to treat damaged corneas, saying it also holds promise.

Zhang said their results need to be validated in a large number of patients "and with a longer follow-up period."

Will it work in older eyes?

One major question remains to be answered: Can it be applied to age-related cataracts, the leading cause of blindness?

According to the National Eye Institute, about 24.4 million Americans suffer from cataracts. Between 2000 and 2010, the number of cataract cases in the U.S. went up by 20 percent, and it's expected to continue to grow as the population ages.

"We are now planning a study to test this approach in this old patient population. In addition, we are testing if this approach can be used in treating other leading causes of blindness, such as macular degeneration and glaucoma," said Zhang.

He hopes the surgery will be available to the general population within four to five years.

"I would anticipate that it may be available after several independent studies with a large number of patients," he said.

Feast your eyes: 8 nutrients to help protect your sight

Some other experts in the field saw great promise in the research.

"Everyone's working on this. Stem cells are like the Holy Grail of vision research," Dr. James Tsai, M.D., president of the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, told CBS News. "To me, it's very exciting data. They may be on to something."

But he tempered the hope the study offers by noting that the lens regeneration work is also "very controversial" and could impact a multimillion-dollar industry.

"This is potentially a new surgery. If you think about the implications in the long run, lens implants may not be necessary," he said. "There are a lot of doctors who will want to see more data."

He also pointed out that the study involved infants, and that adults -- the most common cataract patients -- have a different regenerative capacity of lens epithelial stem cells.

In the meantime, Tsai said it's hopeful news for some babies with congenital cataracts like the children who participated in the study. "As a glaucoma specialist, the way we do congenital cataracts, there's a great risk these babies will develop glaucoma for a lifetime and maybe with this new surgery, they won't have that glaucoma risk."

Dr. Maria Valeria Canto-Soler, assistant professor of ophthalmology and director of the Retinal Degeneration Research Center at Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute, said she was impressed by the research.

"The main excitement for me is the ability to regenerate an organ or a tissue within an organ," said Canto-Soler, a retina specialist.

"From what I know, I'd say this is the first demonstration where you can use endogenous stem cells for replacing tissue within the eye. It's something we are all looking for. They have actually done it in humans."

She said, even without answers to the question of whether it will work in aging eyes, it creates hope for children with congenital issues. "If you can create it in children, that's a big thing. You are giving sight back to little kids and that change their lives."

Larger studies, "more eyes" needed

Dr. Kathryn Hatch, an ophthalmologist at Massachusetts Eye and Ear in Boston, told CBS News the procedure "seems very exciting," but more research is needed.

"I'd need to see a larger study with more eyes, and we need to see some reproducibility, and see how long it would take for the lens -- if it's able to regenerate -- what are the visual results. Because that's what patients really care about. Their vision. If it takes months to get to an outcome, it's not superior to the lens technologies we have now. I'm not sure what the advantage is. Most patients don't even want to wait. They want to get back to work, their life," Hatch added.

She also had questions about how the procedure was done with such a tiny incision. "I don't understand how they're doing the surgery with such a tiny hole without tearing the capsule. If we make a three millimeter incision [in traditional cataract surgery], that's really small in an adult."

Cataract surgery is "traditionally done by hand with a bent needle. That's one of the most difficult steps to learn as a surgeon. One of most important steps to learn," she said and there could be major eye damage if a surgery was compromised by a tear.

She also noted that baby eye surgery is different from adults in that the infant cataract is much softer compared to an adult's harder cataract.

UCLA's Bhat noted another limitation in the study: "These are all genetic cataracts. This study wasn't long enough. They [cataracts] may come back," he said, but it's also possible the genetic defect may not reappear.

He's said it's unclear if the results will be mirrored in older cataract patients, the same concern expressed by others in the field.

"Cell division is slower in older people," Bhat said. "The biggest problem as we grow older, particularly beyond 50, is cell division which keeps on decreasing. Our ability to make new cells is significantly lost. The process that these people are depending upon is tremendously dependent on cell division."

Bhat said he also paused when he read the statement in the paper that claimed a 100 percent success rate three months after surgery.

"I don't know them. I can't second guess them. You've got to believe the written word."

Key to HIV Treatment Found in Human Blood

A group of scientists from Scripps Research Institute (TSRI ) discovered that immune cells able to conquer HIV are present in the human body.

Some people infected with HIV can produce antibodies that effectively neutralize many strains of the dangerous, rapidly mutating virus. A healthy person, however, would need to be immunized with special antigens in order to produce the required antibodies.

The success of a potential vaccine depends on the ability of the immunogen to bind with cells called B-lymphocytes and to activate them so that they produce antibodies. A team of scientists wrote in a new study published in Science magazine on March 24 that most people have so-called "embryo" precursor cells in their bodies which can generate VRC01 antibodies needed to conquer HIV cells.

The scientists tried to develop a special kind of immunogen which would bind certain B-lymphocytes, potentially responsible for immunity against HIV. The immunogen has to be very unique because the required progenitor cells are very rare among other B-lymphocytes.

"We found that almost everybody has these broadly neutralizing antibody precursors, and that a precisely engineered protein can bind to these cells that have potential to develop into HIV broadly neutralizing antibody-producing cells, even in the presence of competition from other immune cells," said the study's lead author, TSRI professor William Schief.

The immunologists synthesized protein immunogen EOD-GT8 60mer. The research showed that mice vaccinated with the protein generate VRC01 antibodies. If EOD-GT8 60mer can trigger the same reaction in humans, the scientists may then develop several more immunogens that will jointly cause the synthesis of a wide range of antibodies able to conquer HIV.

In a recent article published in Scientific Reports magazine, genetic scientists wrote that CRISPR/Cas9  technology is able to remove HIV virogenes from infected T-lymphocytes which the virus usually attacks. The finding may help to develop new methods of therapy for people with AIDS.

Climate Disruption in Overdrive: Submerged Cities and Melting That "Feeds on Itself"


Dahr Jamail

As the presidential campaign circus dominates headlines across the US, glaring signs the planet is undergoing abrupt anthropogenic climate disruption (ACD) abound.

A major study published in Nature Climate Change shows that the planet is warming a stunning 50 times faster than when it comes out of an ice age. The implications of the rapidity of this warming, for those who care to digest it emotionally, are horrifying.

[ ]

The study shows that even if carbon reduction targets are achieved and the planet's temperature is kept below the 2 degree Celsius warming threshold, sea-level rise will still inundate major coastal cities around the world, forcing one-fifth of the total world population of humans to migrate away from the coasts. New York, London, Rio de Janeiro, Jakarta, Cairo, Kolkata and Shanghai will all be underwater.

As though to reinforce this point, NASA recently released data confirming that February was the warmest month ever measured globally, at 1.57 degrees Celsius above the preindustrial baseline temperature average. The new record easily smashed the old global temperature record, which was set just one month before, in January.

[ ]

This means that while it took from the advent of the industrial age until October 2015 to warm the planet 1 degree Celsius, humans have managed to warm the planet another .57 degrees Celsius in just the next four months since then.

Let that sink in for a moment before reading further.

Carbon emissions are now the highest they have been since the age of dinosaurs, 66 million years ago.

As if that isn't enough, a study recently published in the journal Nature Geoscience

[ ]

revealed that carbon emissions are now the highest they have been since the age of dinosaurs, 66 million years ago. According to the study, the current pace of emissions is even beyond the highest-known natural surge of carbon that exists in fossil records, an event that occurred 56 million years ago that was believed by many to be caused by the release of frozen stores of greenhouse gases from the seabed.

That ancient release, which drove temperatures up 5 degrees Celsius, is now surpassed by our current surge of carbon release. "Given currently available records, the present anthropogenic carbon release rate is unprecedented during the past 66 million years," the scientists of the new study wrote.

Another ominous sign of escalating ACD: The entire Northern Hemisphere surpassed the 2 degree Celsius mark for the first time since human civilization began. Bear in mind that 2 degrees Celsius is the arbitrary, politically agreed-upon warming limit, above which warming is considered "dangerous" to humanity. Former NASA scientist James Hansen debunked that goal over two years ago, when he published a paper showing that 1 degree Celsius was the scientifically proven point of no return.

Parts of the Arctic were 29 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than normal in February, which even brought large portions of the Arctic above freezing and into temperature levels more common in June.

Dozens of countries across Europe and Asia set or tied all-time temperature records, and cities across the United States saw record warm temperatures, in which the 2015-2016 winter was the warmest ever recorded.

Winter in the US, according to meteorologists, technically takes place from December through February. This year, that winter was 4.6 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than normal, breaking the previous record, which was set in 1999-2000. This winter, all six of the states that comprise New England had their warmest winters ever. Meanwhile, every single US state had winters nearly 2 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than normal, and Alaska's winter was an incredible 10.6 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than normal.

[ ]

Underscoring the severity of what is clearly a planetary warming crisis, the New Scientist reported in early March that earth had its highest-ever annual increase in carbon dioxide levels ever recorded, with atmospheric levels breaching 404 parts per million.

[ ]

The Arctic is where warming continues to be the most blatantly obvious. In early March, the start of the famed Iditarod sled dog race looked more like something out of a dystopian science fiction movie, as snow-starved Anchorage had snow hauled hundreds of miles down from Fairbanks to cover the dry streets upon which the dogs would run. Then, the typically 11-mile long ceremonial start was shortened to three miles.

Meanwhile, melting in Greenland is occurring so intensely and quickly that it is "feeding on itself," according to a recently published scientific study. Greenland alone contains enough ice to raise global sea levels by 20 feet.

[ ]

This information is emotionally challenging to take in. It is understandable that people prefer to distract themselves with the minute-to-minute antics of the political and media charade that is the US election cycle, yet it has never been more important to understand what the planet upon which we live and depend is undergoing.


There are several indicators this month of how rapidly the planet is changing under increasing stressors from ACD.

In North America, millions of acres of forests are struggling and under increasing threat, due to the fact that the speed at which the planetary climate is changing is now far, far ahead of the forests' ability to adapt to the hotter and drier conditions ACD has ushered in across vast areas of the United States and Canada. New research shows that all of the forests in the US are officially under threat from ACD.

[ ]

And it's not just forests that are being impacted. The agricultural sector is in big trouble, as crops are being impacted dramatically by the rapidly changing climate.

For example, in Montana, a recent study shows that agricultural losses due to ACD could total up to $736 million annually.

[ ]

Panning out, another recent study shows that food scarcity caused by ACD would cause at least half a million deaths across the world by 2050, due to food production being impacted by the effects of ACD.

[ ]

In the continental US alone, millions of people are already at risk of being forced out of their homes because of sea-level rise.

Making matters worse, a group affiliated with the UN recently released a study showing that an ongoing decline of pollinating species now poses a very dire threat to the global food supply. The report warns that the species responsible for pollinating and promoting the growth of hundreds of billions of dollars worth of crops are facing extinction.

Another study, this one published in Nature Climate Change, shows that high-latitude insects, like those in Scotland, face severe declines in population from ACD, due to the fact that they are far more sensitive to warmer temperatures than previously believed.

[ ]

Even as far north as the Arctic, ACD's growing impact on insects is obvious. A recent study published in PLOS ONE shows that warming temperatures are impacting beetle populations, and hence the entire biodiversity of the Arctic. The temperature change is causing the insects to migrate into new habitats, which is having a domino effect that is upsetting the natural balance.

For humans in the far north, ACD's impacts are even more obvious. Intensifying heat is threatening the way of life of the Indigenous population in the Arctic. With the ice disappearing and temperatures continuing to rise, the life cycles and numbers of fish, marine mammals, caribou and polar bears are being altered, which is causing Indigenous communities to face food shortages.

The leaders of First Nations and Inuit communities in the Arctic are now also speaking out about the mental health cost of ACD. The Native populations of the Arctic are dealing with growing despair over the effects of ACD on their lives and communities, and observers are connecting this to a growing array of mental health and social problems.

In addition to this, ACD has caused the onslaught of rising sea levels, melting permafrost and other impacts that have positioned residents of the Arctic in a losing battle to stay in their homes. Housing shortages are now the norm as land is washing and melting away into the rising seas.

Meanwhile, across the lower latitudes, recent satellite images show that tropical rain forests ranging from the Amazon to the Philippines are vanishing far more abruptly than was previously believed, according to recent research. As usual, ACD, drought, wildfires and deforestation are to blame.


As usual, ACD-induced extremes of water, either far too much or far too little, are stark this month.

In Africa, at least 36 million people are facing hunger due to record-high temperatures and drought, which have had a catastrophic impact on crops across the eastern and southern regions of that continent.

[ ]

Meanwhile in the Arctic, February saw alarming melting of Arctic sea ice, where record-high temperatures brought with them other records -- including record lows for that month's extent and area of Arctic sea ice.

[ ]

Until this year, the previous records for sea ice extent and area for February were set in 2011. Moreover, the total volume of the Arctic sea ice, which many scientists see as the most important factor determining the health of Arctic sea ice, reached its second-lowest level ever recorded that same month. The record low for sea ice volume was set in 2012, a record that could fall this year or next, according to scientists.

Global rainfall extremes continue to be elevated by ACD. A new study published in Nature Climate Change basically warns us to get ready for rain, and lots of it. The study shows that ACD is already driving increases in rainfall and snowfall extremes around the world, even in arid regions. This trend, according to the study, will continue, and likely amplify further.

[ ]

In the oceans, things continue to look grim.

Recent research shows that coral growth is already being weakened by increasingly acidifying oceans. One-quarter of the carbon dioxide released as a result of human activities is absorbed into the world's oceans, where it alters their chemistry and reduces coral growth.

Meanwhile, a severe coral bleaching event in the most pristine portions of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia has caused authorities there to raise an alarm over severe local coral bleaching, caused by warm ocean temperatures.

[ ]

Another study shows how ACD is pushing fish toward both poles, which means that traditionally poorer countries near the equator have even less access to one of their primary food sources. The fish migrations are due to global temperature increases in the oceans.

[ ]

Meanwhile, sea levels continue to rise ahead of worst-case predictions. A study recently published in Nature Climate Change warns that in the continental United States alone, millions of people are already at risk of being forced out of their homes because of sea-level rise. The study shows that sea-level increases will cause the homes of 4 million Americans to be inundated during high tides with three feet of sea-level rise by 2100, although the pace of sea-level rise is consistently ahead of that projection.

[ ]

"Once you take into account growth of population, the numbers end up being two to three times more in terms of overall population that's going to be impacted than if you just look at current populations," said Stetson University landscape ecologist Jason Evans, who contributed to the study. "Florida really pops out."

With six feet of sea-level rise, which many scientists believe is inevitable, more than 4 million people, in Florida alone, will lose their homes.


In the Southern Hemisphere, ACD-fueled wildfires continue to burn apace.

In Tasmania, bushfires have grown so severe that 1,000-year-old trees are burning to ash while dried-out peat bogs are on fire. Experts there are warning that what is happening in Tasmania is a human-caused calamity as severe as the razing of the temples in Palmyra by ISIS.

It's also worth noting that in the United States, wildfire season is already underway (albeit earlier than normal of course), with one massive wildfire having already burnt more than 72,000 acres across Oklahoma and Kansas.


This month, there are many bright neon warning signs in the Air category.

Atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have reached new heights, signaling an alarming increase. February 2015 to February 2016 saw the highest year-to-year growth ever recorded.

Pieter Tans, lead scientist of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Global Greenhouse Gas Reference Network, said the new record accompanied four straight years of increases of over 2 parts per million in the atmosphere. Of this, Trans said, "We've never seen that. That's unprecedented."

Temperatures across the globe continue to escalate.

Melbourne, Australia, saw its hottest March night ever recorded, breaking the previous record by more than 1 degree Celsius. The previous record was set only three years prior.

Moving northward, the rapidly increasing temperatures in the Arctic prompted climate scientist Dr. Peter Gleick, president of the Pacific Institute in California, to warn that this accelerated increase could have a "catastrophic" effect on the planet's climate. He explained that the higher temperatures are driving the creation of dangerous storms across the Northern Hemisphere, and that since early February, the area of the Arctic covered by sea ice has been lower this year than any of the last 30 years.

Gleick posted a graph of the diminishing sea ice on Twitter with the message: "What is happening in the Arctic now is unprecedented and possibly catastrophic."

In parts of the Arctic, February shattered all previous temperature records as the entire month reached a staggering 18 degrees Fahrenheit above normal in some regions. Fort Yukon, Alaska, a place that has recorded the lowest temperature on record in that state, is experiencing record warm temperatures, causing people there to say that the warming trends "have robbed the Arctic of its winter."

To make matters worse, methane, a greenhouse gas 100 times more potent than carbon dioxide on a 20-year time scale, spiked in February to more than 3,000 parts per billion in the atmosphere. This was the largest spike of methane ever recorded.

Denial and Reality

Apparently, impending catastrophe doesn't mean much to some of the United States' wealthiest people. Once again a report has arisen documenting how fossil fuel millionaires pumped more than $100 million into Republican presidential super PACs last year. That means that $1 out of every $3 donated to Republican candidates coming from hyper-rich individuals came from people who made their fortunes from fossil fuels. In boosting GOP politicians, these funders were simply acting to protect their cash cows from those of us who happen to give a damn about the planet.

A recent report by the Center for American Progress Action Fund shows that more than six out of every 10 Americans are represented by someone in Congress who denies the reality of ACD. According to the report, 59 percent of the Republican House caucus and an amazing 70 percent of the Republicans in the Senate deny ACD is real. The report also reveals that, according to the US Census, 202,803,591 Americans are represented by an ACD denier.

Florida, a state notorious for having a government led by ACD deniers, faces yet another reality check from ACD. Fort Lauderdale, which is a boomtown of growth and construction, and also expects its population to grow by one-third in the next 15 years, is hurtling headfirst toward the reality of ACD. Sea-level rise will eventually cause the city to be abandoned to the ocean.

Another blow for deniers came in the form of recent polling data, which shows a record number of Americans now see ACD as a threat. According to Gallup polling, 41 percent of US adults believe ACD poses a "serious threat" to them during their lifetimes -- a 4 percent increase over 2015, and the highest level ever recorded by Gallup.

Gallup data also shows that 64 percent of those polled worried about ACD "a great deal" or at least "a fair amount," which is the highest level recorded since 2008. Meanwhile, only 36 percent of Americans said they did not worry about it, or only worried about it a little. Additionally, 65 percent of Americans now believe ACD is due to greenhouse gases released by human activity, a 10 percent increase on this topic over last year.

Another reality check came from Dr. James Hansen, who declared recently, "We have a global emergency" due to ACD. Hansen noted that ACD is poised to render large parts of the world essentially uninhabitable by 2100 due to extremely hot temperatures.

Recent data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration revealed that the planet saw an "explosive" amount of annual carbon dioxide growth in the atmosphere during 2015, as the amount of carbon dioxide saw its largest single annual increase since record-keeping began.

A recent study by the University of Queensland gave yet another sobering warning, stating that global temperatures could rise much faster than expected, possibly even breaching the 2 degree Celsius mark much sooner than predicted (thus missing the politically agreed-upon goal of keeping warming below 2 degrees Celsius).

The final reality check for this month's dispatch comes in the form of a cruise ship. For the first time ever, the Arctic passage that connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans is going to be opened up to cruise liners this summer. The first of them, the Crystal Serenity, will take more than 900 passengers paying over $100,000 each through the perilous route that at one time foiled most explorers, due to there being too much thick ice throughout the summer -- given that it is, after all, the Arctic.

Not anymore.

Could a HERB be the secret to living to 100?
Diet rich in rosemary linked to good health and long life expectancy in Italian village


Kate Pickles

Rosemary could be the secret to living to 100 according to researchers investigating 300 centenarians in a remote Italian village.

For the herb appears to be commonly used by a group of pensioners who have a most remarkable record of not just living longer but free of heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

Teams of medical experts have been given permission for the first time ever to examine the residents of a coastal hamlet called Acciaroli, near the resort of Salerno.

Nestled between the sea and the mountains the area has a population of a couple of thousand or so yet among them are at least 300 men and women who are already 100 years old or more.

This is a phenomenal ratio compared to, for instance, America where just 0..02 per cent of the population will live that long.

It is believed that factors for their long life and low rates of both mental and physical illness include the famously healthy Mediterranean diet that is popular throughout the region.

But rosemary is particularly prevalent in their cooking, said researchers from the University of California San Diego School of Medicine and University of Rome, who are carrying out the study.

Other influences include, perhaps obviously, the fresh air and walking - the residents regularly walk or hike through mountains to go to the shops or to work for instance as part of their daily routines.

San Diego doctor Professor Alan Maisel said: ‘We are the first group of researchers to be given permission to study this population in Acciaroli, Italy.’

The teams will look at diet, lifestyle and take blood samples and distribute questionnaires to the 300 centenarians of Acciaroli.

Professor Maisel added: ‘The goal of this long-term study is to find out why this group of 300 is living so long by conducting a full genetic analysis and examining lifestyle behaviours, like diet and exercise.

‘The results from studying the longevity of this group could be applied to our practice at UC San Diego and to patients all over the world.’

Why the System is Set for Tyranny


Aaron Dykes

The metaphor of society run by the levers of the machine, and the "system" that operates government and industry became much more literal in the post-war age of cybernetics.

Mathematics and other related fields have got all that behavior down to a somewhat exact science.

The use of algorithms and feed back mechanisms to track behavior has allowed the social scientist to manage people in mass, in often very subtle yet deeply meaningful ways.

Here, Stafford Beer explains a concept outlined by Ross Ashby about the natural order and tendencies of systems - including some obvious pitfalls that are being played out today.:

Stafford Beer explains the Law of Requisite Variety, also called Ashby's Law in honor of W. Ross Ashby his cybernetician friend.

Beers ponders on the dangers of the inability to foresee the consequences of the variety explosion due to come in the future as everybody wants more and more autonomy.

In political and social terms, this means there must be enough inputs for members to give their feedback in order for the system to correct to a state that is more "fair" and "democratic" and "inclusive," etc.

Using automation and goal directing to manage and control all sectors of society, or the entire machine itself, cybernetics creates a closed loop for corrective action that is automated, and in which man has little direct input.

When there is not a proper balance of power, and there are not meaningful channels of communication for dissent, and the exercise of liberty, then tyranny is inevitable.

When the system is not properly configured, the injustice of the power of the state becomes even greater.

The same is true for economics, where the draconian policies of controlling and manipulating, especially through tightening, of the monetary supply and the price of business already created a rigged game.

Today, though, high speed, automatic trades based on complex computer algorithms dominate the marketplace and create an arena that is programmed to let insiders win at the expense of everyone else.

It is an entirely different sense of order out of chaos - which indeed has been anticipated and modeled by mathematicians and computer engineers for more than half a century.
Stafford Beer - A Computer Runs Chile - A Trekkie Geeks Out

Stafford Beer was a leading cybernetician from the UK who was invited to run the Chilean government - using cybernetic machine communiqués - during the short-lived reign of President Salvador Allende.

After being elected openly and fairly in 1970, Allende was removed by a CIA coup on September 11, 1973 - plotted with then-National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger.

Allende was a Marxist and socialist who nationalized industry and collectivized social interaction with government.

In a video address explaining how cybernetics works in government, Beer expresses his genuine respect for Allende and his policies, and obviously felt he was sincere.

He believed a just government was being erected - even in the hands of a machine.

Many of these sentiments are well placed.

In the first video (above), Beer makes clear that self-sufficient and free people is the goal, and indeed it should be.

In the end, Stafford Beer only had a couple of short years, and the promise of political progress - flawed or not - was cut short and went unfulfilled (though Beer continued his work in the UK and other Latin American countries).

The New Yorker wrote a thorough piece on Stafford Beer's project in cybernetic socialism:

The consultant, Stafford Beer, had been brought in by Chile's top planners to help guide the country down what Salvador Allende, its democratically elected Marxist leader, was calling "the Chilean road to socialism."

Beer was a leading theorist of cybernetics - a discipline born of midcentury efforts to understand the role of communication in controlling social, biological, and technical systems.

Chile's government had a lot to control: Allende, who took office in November of 1970, had swiftly nationalized the country's key industries, and he promised "worker participation" in the planning process.

Beer's mission was to deliver a hypermodern information system that would make this possible, and so bring socialism into the computer age.

The system he devised had a gleaming, sci-fi name: Project Cybersyn.

Beer was an unlikely savior for socialism. He had served as an executive with United Steel […] He had a lavish life style […]

To convince workers that cybernetics in the service of the command economy could offer the best of socialism, a certain amount of reassurance was in order. In addition to folk music, there were plans for cybernetic-themed murals in the factories, and for instructional cartoons and movies. Mistrust remained.

"Chile Run by Computer," a January, 1973, headline in the Observer announced, shaping the reception of Beer's plan in Britain.

At the center of Project Cybersyn (for "cybernetics synergy") was the Operations Room, where cybernetically sound decisions about the economy were to be made. Those seated in the op room would review critical highlights - helpfully summarized with up and down arrows - from a real-time feed of factory data from around the country.

The prototype op room was built in downtown Santiago, in the interior courtyard of a building occupied by the national telecom company. It was a hexagonal space, thirty-three feet in diameter, accommodating seven white fibreglass swivel chairs with orange cushions and, on the walls, futuristic screens.

Tables and paper were banned. Beer was building the future, and it had to look like the future.

One wall was reserved for Project Cyberfolk, an ambitious effort to track the real-time happiness of the entire Chilean nation in response to decisions made in the op room.

Beer built a device that would enable the country's citizens, from their living rooms, to move a pointer on a voltmeter-like dial that indicated moods ranging from extreme unhappiness to complete bliss.

The plan was to connect these devices to a network - it would ride on the existing TV networks - so that the total national happiness at any moment in time could be determined.

The algedonic meter, as the device was called (from the Greek algos, "pain," and hedone, "pleasure"), would measure only raw pleasure-or-pain reactions to show whether government policies were working.

In many respects, Beer's cybernetic dream has finally come true [in the current age of Big Data]: the virtue of collecting and analyzing information in real time is an article of faith shared by corporations and governments alike.

Beer took the metaphor of the body politic seriously in crafting his cybernetics model for Chile - as a means of managing an entire country - and even had a control room with Star Trek-inspired chairs.

However, a genius mind working among the "game makers" of our world cannot be so naive as to think that a pure democracy can be operated cheerfully by a cybernetic government.

Once the powers are created to control the masses, and force everyone (or even most) onto a centrally-controlled, automated system, the abuse of rights is inevitable.

The system is geared towards goals for the "greater good" in a collectivist society - and individual needs are routinely seen as "noise in the signal", and interference with the goal:

vaccine mandates
forced quarantines
mandatory education
federal income tax
social security
health care systems,

...and more have been forced onto society without meaningful choice, and with tremendous levels of propaganda from establishment media outlets.

And that is when the system is operating in neutral.

In the wrong hands, Stafford Beer's system could make,

police states
a firm iron grip,

...operate at the height of efficiency.

This was seen in pre-cybernetics days with Stalin, who ruled ruthlessly and absolutely (and who notoriously demanded Soviet cybernetics be rejected on grounds of being ‘imperialist').

After his death, it took over Soviet management.

During the height of cybernetics, it was East German Stasi who used cybernetics to direct a hyper-efficient surveillance state model that repressed absolutely everyone, induced fear of arousing suspicion and compelling neighbors and family members to snitch out their close companions for crimes against the state.
Collectivism is Tyranny, and the Destruction of the Individual

Whether in a flourishing modern technological democracy or a tight-sealed super state, cybernetics ultimately results in, "computeriz[ing] our political decision-making" leaving individuality and human freedom more and more on the margins.

Historian Carroll Quigley foresaw the dehumanizing effects of technology in the management of society - and properly warned that it would strip freedom down to narrow confines where a few options exist, but only those which are compatible and acceptable to the system itself.

On p. 866 in Tragedy and Hope, he sums up the problem of collectivism - which is happening already in the United States - where political candidates, the economy and a vast bureaucracy of social services had reduced man to a number - hardly the goal of a "free" society:

In effect, average Americans have been reduced to mere serfs, and will be increasingly shown it as technology takes over everything.

Only non-compliance with the system, and disengagement from the machine that runs it, can result in greater freedom.

Everything else is organized tyranny - and there may well be many positive trade offs and conveniences - but engaging the system means handing over an equal amount of control.

Flat boron is a superconductor

Scientists predict 2-D material -- no longer theoretical -- has unique properties

Rice University scientists have determined that two-dimensional boron is a natural low-temperature superconductor. In fact, it may be the only 2-D material with such potential.

Rice theoretical physicist Boris Yakobson and his co-workers published their calculations that show atomically flat boron is metallic and will transmit electrons with no resistance. The work appears this month in the American Chemical Society journal Nano Letters.

The hitch, as with most superconducting materials, is that it loses its resistivity only when very cold, in this case between 10 and 20 kelvins (roughly, minus-430 degrees Fahrenheit). But for making very small superconducting circuits, it might be the only game in town.

The basic phenomenon of superconductivity has been known for more than 100 years, said Evgeni Penev, a research scientist in the Yakobson group, but had not been tested for its presence in atomically flat boron.

"It's well-known that the material is pretty light because the atomic mass is small," Penev said. "If it's metallic too, these are two major prerequisites for superconductivity. That means at low temperatures, electrons can pair up in a kind of dance in the crystal."

"Lower dimensionality is also helpful," Yakobson said. "It may be the only, or one of very few, two-dimensional metals. So there are three factors that gave the initial motivation for us to pursue the research. Then we just got more and more excited as we got into it."

Electrons with opposite momenta and spins effectively become Cooper pairs; they attract each other at low temperatures with the help of lattice vibrations, the so-called "phonons," and give the material its superconducting properties, Penev said. "Superconductivity becomes a manifestation of the macroscopic wave function that describes the whole sample. It's an amazing phenomenon," he said.

It wasn't entirely by chance that the first theoretical paper establishing conductivity in a 2-D material appeared at roughly the same time the first samples of the material were made by laboratories in the United States and China. In fact, an earlier paper by the Yakobson group had offered a road map for doing so.

That 2-D boron has now been produced is a good thing, according to Yakobson and lead authors Penev and Alex Kutana, a postdoctoral researcher at Rice. "We've been working to characterize boron for years, from cage clusters to nanotubes to planer sheets, but the fact that these papers appeared so close together means these labs can now test our theories," Yakobson said.

"In principle, this work could have been done three years ago as well," he said. "So why didn't we? Because the material remained hypothetical; okay, theoretically possible, but we didn't have a good reason to carry it too far.

"But then last fall it became clear from professional meetings and interactions that it can be made. Now those papers are published. When you think it's coming for real, the next level of exploration becomes more justifiable," Yakobson said.

Boron atoms can make more than one pattern when coming together as a 2-D material, another characteristic predicted by Yakobson and his team that has now come to fruition. These patterns, known as polymorphs, may allow researchers to tune the material's conductivity "just by picking a selective arrangement of the hexagonal holes," Penev said.

He also noted boron's qualities were hinted at when researchers discovered more than a decade ago that magnesium diborite is a high-temperature electron-phonon superconductor. "People realized a long time ago the superconductivity is due to the boron layer," Penev said. "The magnesium acts to dope the material by spilling some electrons into the boron layer. In this case, we don't need them because the 2-D boron is already metallic."

Penev suggested that isolating 2-D boron between layers of inert hexagonal boron nitride (aka "white graphene") might help stabilize its superconducting nature.

Without the availability of a block of time on several large government supercomputers, the study would have taken a lot longer, Yakobson said. "Alex did the heavy lifting on the computational work," he said. "To turn it from a lunchtime discussion into a real quantitative research result took a very big effort."

The paper is the first by Yakobson's group on the topic of superconductivity, though Penev is a published author on the subject. "I started working on superconductivity in 1993, but it was always kind of a hobby, and I hadn't done anything on the topic in 10 years," Penev said. "So this paper brings it full circle."

Can Two-Dimensional Boron Superconduct?

Evgeni S. Penev, Alex Kutana, Boris I. Yakobson.

Two-dimensional boron is expected to exhibit various structural polymorphs, all being metallic. Additionally, its small atomic mass suggests strong electron–phonon coupling, which in turn can enable superconducting behavior. Here we perform first-principles analysis of electronic structure, phonon spectra, and electron–phonon coupling of selected 2D boron polymorphs and show that the most stable structures predicted to feasibly form on a metal substrate should also exhibit intrinsic phonon-mediated superconductivity, with estimated critical temperature in the range of Tc ≈ 10–20 K.

The Moon may play a major role in maintaining Earth's magnetic field

The Earth's magnetic field permanently protects us from the charged particles and radiation that originate in the Sun. This shield is produced by the geodynamo, the rapid motion of huge quantities of liquid iron alloy in the Earth's outer core. To maintain this magnetic field until the present day, the classical model required the Earth's core to have cooled by around 3,000 °C over the past 4.3 billion years. Now, a team of researchers from CNRS and Université Blaise Pascal[1] suggests that, on the contrary, its temperature has fallen by only 300 °C. The action of the Moon, overlooked until now, is thought to have compensated for this difference and kept the geodynamo active. Their work is published on 30 march 2016 in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters...

Ultra-Low Emissions Low-Swirl Burner


Low-swirl combustion (LSC) is an aerodynamic flame stabilization method discovered in 1991at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Originally intended as as a burner for basic research, its turbulent flowfield and flame properties have been investigated by laser diagnostic. The analysis showed that the basic LSC principle is fundamentally different than the conventional high-swirl combustion method and defies many established notions on turbulent flame properties and burner engineering concepts.

Due to its exceptional capability to burn ultra lean flames that emit very low levels of oxides of nitrogen (NOx), the novel low-swirl combustion method has evolved into a simple and robust ultra-low emissions combustion technology for burners in industrial heaters and in gas turbines for electricity production.

Low-swirl combustion can be implemented in two ways. The original approach uses small jets to create the swirling motion. The low-swirl burner (LSB) developed for heaters and gas turbines uses a patented vane-swirler .

Basic knowledge gained from the laboratory studies has provided the scientific underpinning to develop an analytical model, scaling laws and engineering guidelines for adapting the LSB to various combustion devices. The LSB remains a mainstay for fundamental research and a growing number of researchers world-wide are using the LSB to investigate the fundamental turbulent flame processes.
The low-swirl burner is scalable. The smallest (left) in development for residential furnaces is 1 inch in diameter. The largest LSB in development for industrial heating by Maxon (right) is 28 inches in diameter. Regardless of the burner sizes, their performances in terms of turndown, efficiency, and pollutant emissions are the same. Residential appliances contribute to a significant amount of air pollution in the urban areas. These commodity products cannot afford the sophisticated and expensive pollution reduction technologies developed for the larger commercial and industrial systems. A simple and truly affordable ultra-low emission burner such as the LSB will help these appliances to meet the very stringent emissions standard being implemented in large metropolitan areas world-wide.
NOx emissions from a low-swirl fuel-injector assembly (LSI) developed for Solar Turbines' T70 gas turbine are about 2.5 times less than the levels emitted by the company's current SoLoNOx injector (HSI) that uses the conventional high-swirl burner concept. The NOx emissions data were obtained with single injector tests at partial and full load conditions. A set of LSI was also tested in an engine and produced equally encouraging results. (Figures shows NOx data reported in Johnson et. al., 2005)
Technology Transfer

The US Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science's Laboratory Technology Research program supported the first commercial development of the LSB. The small 2" diameter burner was engineered for residential natural gas water heaters of 50 KBtu/hr (15kW) and lowered the NOx emissions from well over 120 ppm to below 10 ppm without compromising the efficiency. A significant finding was that the small LSB has a very high turndown (i.e. ratio of the maximum to minimum power outputs). It is capable of operating at up to 2 MMBtu/hr (600 kW). The exceptionally high 40:1 turndown is unmatched by other low-NOx burner technologies and show that the LSB is scalable to the larger sizes for industrial processes.

Under the support of California Institute of Energy Efficiency and DOE's Industrial Technology Program at the Office Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, the LSB was scaled to the large sizes and demonstrated successfully in natural gas furnaces and boilers. Maxon Corp. of Muncie IN introduce the first commercial LSB product in 2003. Currently, the company has two lines of LSB products from 300 KBtu/hr (90kW) to 120 MMBtu/hr (35 MW) all emitting less than 9 ppm NOx (corrected to 3 %O2) while delivering exceptionally high performance of 10-15:1 turndown.

Subsequent LSB developments targeted gas turbines that utilize natural gas for generating electricity in utility power plants, and in industrial and manufacturing sites. DOE's Distributed Energy Resources at the Office of Electricity supported LBNL and Solar Turbines of San Diego, CA to adapt the LSB to small gas turbines of 5 to 7 MW electricity output. These gas turbines operate at pressure of up to 15 atmospheres and temperature exceeding 400 C. The first challenge was to proof that the LSC method is operable at these conditions. The second is to engineer the LSB to operating in a gas turbine system. Since a vane-swirler is a standard component of the high-swirl burner used in gas turbines, a decision was made to fast track the development by converting Solar Turbines' current high-swirl burner to operate in the low-swirl mode. The conversion was successful and produced a low-swirl fuel injector (LSI) that is a retrofit of the current SoLoNOx high swirl fuel injector (HSI). The LSI helps reduce the NOx emissions to below 5 ppm (corrected to 15 % O2) (see chart on the right). The team was honored by a RD100 Award in 2007.

The LSB has also been adapted to smaller microturbines of 100kW electricity output. The development was supported by California Energy Commission (CEC) as part of a Combined-Heat-and-Power project led by CMC Engineering of Sunnyvale CA. The microturbine is an integral component of a boiler system to produce electricity for powering the air blower of a large boiler burner. CEC is also supporting a new development and demonstration of a microturbine that operates on digester waste gas from a water treatment plant in Oakland CA.

With increasing concern regarding the impact of energy use on global climate change, fuel-flexibility has become a critical requirement of next-generation gas turbines. The US Department of Energy's Office of Fossil Energy is supporting the research to extend the LSB technology to a variety of fuels including syngas and hydrogen for utility size turbines of over 200 MW electricity output. This is one of manyprojects in a large effort to develop Near-Zero Emissions Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) Coal Power Plants. For the hydrogen fueled gas turbines in these power plants, DOE sets a very aggressive goal of less than 2 ppm NOx operation on syngas and up to 90% pure hydrogen at 2500-2600F (1371 - 1426 C) turbine firing temperatures. Burning of hydrogen in a gas turbine presents significant technical and engineering challenges because of the high reactivity of hydrogen, its fast flame speed, and the propensity of the H2/air mixture to auto-ignite and explode. Many conventional approaches may not work without diluting the fuel/air mixture with inert gases or exhaust gas NOx cleanup with catalysts.

The development of LSB for H2 is guided by the scientific principles of the LSC method. An analytical model has been applied to understand the changes in the LSB flame when switching from natural gas to hydrogen. Preliminary laboratory tests results are very encouraging and show that the basic LSB design accepts fuels from pure natural gas to over 90% H2 at simulated gas turbine conditions while meeting the < 2 ppm NOx target. Another important finding is that the model predicts the changes in the LSB flames with fuel contents to confirm its validity as a basis for scaling and system adaptation. However, significant amount of R&D effort is still required to make LSB a reality in hydrogen fueled gas turbines. It will require a gas turbine manufacturer to lead the development and address the operational and safety issues. The basic knowledge on LSC will be an advantage to help the gas turbine manufacturers to overcome the challenges associated with the very energetic hydrogen flames.

The low-swirl burner remains cool to the touch because the lifted flame does not heat up its body. The lifted flame was thought to be highly undesirable because in other burners it signifies unstable flame behaviors. But the unique divergent flowfield of the LSB allows the lifted flame to self-adjust and remain robust at the very lean conditions where NOx emissions are at their minimum.     

The flowlines through the LSB flame shows that there is no flow reversal (i.e. flow recirculation) in the vicinity of the flame. The flowlines spread-out below the flame to indicate flow divergence. Color contours in the background show that the disruptive turbulent shear-stresses are insignificant near the flame. The velocity data was obtained by a method called Particle Image Velocity on a lean methane air flame similar to the one shown in the picture above. The studies of laboratory flamse provided the scientific background to develop a top-order model and scaling laws for adaptation of LSB to different combustion systems      
How It Works

Lean premixed combustion is the foundation for the technologies in almost all modern low-emissions combustion equipment. It burns gaseous fuels mixed thoroughly with an amount of air that exceeds the quantity needed to consume the fuel (i.e. excessive air combustion or fuel lean combustion). This is an approach that deliberately weakens the flame to inhibit NOx formation by lower the flame temperature. Weakening the flame has many undesirable consequences including high carbon monoxide (CO) emissions, incomplete combustion, and most significantly, flame instability that can trigger severe pressure oscillations to damage or cripple the engines and equipment. LSB can harness these undesirable side effects to take fully advantage of lean premixed combustion.

Until now, premixed burners have used the high-swirl flame stabilization method, which evolved from the non-premixed combustion technology found in older and more polluting combustion systems. This traditional method uses a recirculating region (i.e. back flow or reversed flow) to trap and retain a portion of the hot combustion products to ignite fresh reactants. Generations of combustion engineers have been trained to design burners with swirl intensities well above the vortex breakdown threshold to ensure strong recirculation. Combustion researchers are still developing theories and computational methods on high-swirl flames to predict the strengths and size of the recirculation zone to support the engineering designs.

The LSB adopts the opposite approach by operating at swirl intensity well below the vortex breakdown threshold. It produces a non-recirculating flow characterized by a flow divergence region where the axial flow velocity decays linearly with the distance away from the burner exit. The lean premixed turbulent flame self-propels and burns its most natural state without being influenced or restrained by the turbulent shear stresses associated with flow recircluation. The operating principle exploits the most fundamental property of premixed combustion - the premixed flame behaves as a "propagating wave" that moves through and consumes the reactants at a flame speed controlled by mixture composition, and turbulence intensity. The divergence rate of the LSB can be aerodynamically "tuned" to accommodate the turbulent flame speed. And turbulence intensity provides the feedback for the flame to burn faster and slower with load change. This theory is fundamentally different than the flame-holding approach of the traditional high-swirl method.

The LSB show in the photograph at the top of this web page has a simple design that features an annulus vane swirler surrounding a cylindrical center channel. The center channel allows a portion of the reactants to pass without being swirled. The centrifugal forces of the swirling flow acting on the un-swirling center core create flow divergence downstream of the exit. In the figure shown to the left, the divergent nature of the flowfield in the nearfield region at x < 10 mm is illustrated by streamlines that spread outward above x = 0. The rate of flow divergence, i.e. the spreading rate, is a LSB design parameter proportional to the ratio of the unswirled and the swirled flows. Flow divergence creates a flowfield where the axial velocity decays linearly with increasing x. When the velocity at the exit is maintained higher than the turbulent flame speed, ST, the flame rides on this velocity "down-ramp" and self propels at the position where the local flow velocity is equal and opposite to ST.

The divergence rate is adjustable via the parameters that define the LSI swirl number in Eq. 1. Here a is the vane angle, R = Rc/Ri, where Rc and Ri are the corresponding radii of the center-channel and the burner, and m= mc/msrepresents the flow-split between the unswirled and the swirled flow passages where mc and ms are respectively the mass fluxes through the center-channel and the swirl annulus. The presence of m in Eq 1 distinguishes it from the swirl number definition for high-swirl burners. When m = 0, i.e. no flow through the center, Eq 1 reduces to the swirl number definition for high-swirl burner. m in a LSB can be controlled by placing a perforated plate over the open center-channel to create aerodynamic drag. m is then the ratio of the drag coefficients (or pressure drops) for the perforated plate and the swirl vanes. A convenient means to vary the LSB swirl number, S, is by changing the blockage ratios or hole sizes of the perforated plate.

The engineering guideline for the LSB is specified in terms of a range of swirl number (0.4 < S < 0.55), and swirler recess (2 < Li/Ri < 3). Typically, two of the three parameters in Eq 1 are fixed by the swirler geometry. To meet the design criteria, perforated screens with blockages of 30 to 60% are used to render S within the design range. To a casual observer, the LSB has a striking resemblance to the high-swirl burner. The key and fundamental difference is the high-swirl burner has only one flow passage, and its solid centerbody promotes flow recirculation in its wake. When the centerbody is removed and replaced by an open channel, the unswirled flow in the center of the LSB prevents vortex breakdown to inhibit recirculation.

The most distinct characteristic of the LSB is a detached flame that is lifted above its exit. This feature is quite unnerving to engineers who consider lifted flames to be inherently unstable because they learned from combustion texts that flame detachment from the flame holder is a prelude to combustion instability and flame out. The LSB countered this notion by demonstrating that a change from recirculating to non-recirculating flow offer stable operation over a wider range of conditions including those that achieve near zero emissions levels of < 2 ppm NOx and CO. This exceptional performance is due to a coupling of the self-similar feature of the divergent flowfield and a linear correlation of the flame speed with turbulence intensity as expressed in a top-order analytical model. As flow velocity changes with load (i.e. power output), the structure of the divergent flow remains unchanged due to self-similarity but turbulence level increases and decreases accordingly. The flame "rides" the divergent flow and burns faster or slower in synchronous with the flow velocity because turbulence gives the critical feedback to the flame. The net effect is the flame remaining stationary regardless of the variation in the flow velocity. This is a unique auto-adjusting mechanism that allows the LSB to support very lean flames that emit very low concentrations of pollutants.

The self-similar flowfield of the LSB also accommodates the changes in flame properties associated with the use of different gaseous fuels. Due to the variation in chemical properties, some fuels burn faster than others. Hydrogen is among the fastest burning fuels and the premixed hydrogen flames respond more readily to turbulence than natural gas flames. This is expressed by the value of the turbulent flame speed correlation parameter for hydrogen being two times higher than the values for methane or natural gas flames. According to the top-order model, a change in the value of the turbulent flame correlation parameter implies a change in the flame position. Recent laboratory studies of LSB flames with methane and hydrogen flames at standard atmospheric and gas turbine conditions have provided the data to support the modeling prediction. These results shows that the flame/flowfield couping processes described by the model is valid at gas turbine conditions. Such knowledge is important for future development of the LSB technology for the hydrogen turbines in near-zero emissions coal power plants.


Taking away the bluff-body flame stabilize: When the horizontal tangential swirl-air jets at the base of the burner are turned on they produce the divergent flowfield to allow the flame to detached from the bluff-body and freely propagates.


A new design for a low swirl burner is disclosed in which natural draft rather than a motorized pump is used to move a fuel-air mixture through the burner. This new design enables the burn off of gas at refineries in an environment where electric motors cannot be used because of the potential for sparks, which could trigger explosions. Additional modifications to the burner, including the introduction of flue gas to the burner allows for the reduction of NOx gas to meet current emission control targets, without the need for further post combustion emission control systems.

Mechanical swirler for a low-NOx, weak-swirl burner
Disclosed is a mechanical swirler for generating diverging flow in lean premixed fuel burners. The swirler of the present invention includes a central passage with an entrance for accepting a feed gas, a flow balancing insert that introduces additional pressure drop beyond that occurring in the central passage in the absence of the flow balancing insert, and an exit aligned to direct the feed gas into a combustor. The swirler also has an annular passage about the central passage and including one or more vanes oriented to impart angular momentum to feed gas exiting the annular passage. The diverging flow generated by the swirler stabilizes lean combustion thus allowing for lower production of pollutants, particularly oxides of nitrogen.

Ultralean low swirl burner
A novel burner and burner method has been invented which burns an ultra lean premixed fuel-air mixture with a stable flame. The inventive burning method results in efficient burning and much lower emissions of pollutants such as oxides of nitrogen than previous burners and burning methods. The inventive method imparts weak swirl (swirl numbers of between about 0.01 to 3.0) on a fuel-air flow stream. The swirl, too small to cause recirculation, causes an annulus region immediately inside the perimeter of the fuel-air flow to rotate in a plane normal to the axial flow. The rotation in turn causes the diameter of the fuel-air flow to increase with concomitant decrease in axial flow velocity. The flame stabilizes where the fuel-air mixture velocity equals the rate of burning resulting in a stable, turbulent flame.

Wolf Messing Predicts The Collapse Of The U.S In 2016

Translated by Ollie Richardson for Fort Russ

 It just so happened that many of us would like to know in advance what will happen to them, because being forewarned is being forearmed. But how can you predict the future not only for a particular person, but all over the world? For all history of existence of humanity such abilities have been possessed by people. One of these unique seers was Wolf Messing. With those penetrating eyes he looked through time and space, and all that he foresaw, was absolutely accurate. For example, he called Joseph Stalin's true date of the end of world war II.

But the seer was able not only to look a few years ahead, but even more than half a century. For the coming 2016 he also left his message. In it the famous psychic speaks to the three countries, which will experience the most significant changes.

So, according to him, this year the USA will cease to be a superpower, and will be brought down from this position, causing the country to be overlooked. That is, to be in such a state which no one seriously thinks of America as an opponent. It will inflict a crushing blow to the US economy, after which it will simply collapse. But 2016 will be not only fatal for the United States. According to Messing, Japan, together with Taiwan, is waiting for the strongest impact, comparable only with a nuclear one. Where it will come down on them, the predictor did not elaborate, but added that the country will suffer huge financial and human losses.

Messing's watchful eye has not, of course, bypassed Russia. For her, he predicted difficult times. According to him, she will give way to China's force in the territory, but whether voluntarily or in the course of hostilities, the seer didn't specify. But this circumstance does not adversely affect her power, but to the contrary. In this year, according to him, Russia will become the most spiritual and influential power in the world.,full.html

Messing Predictions for 2015

Messing predictions about the future for the three countries. So he predicts that in 2015 the United States will no longer be a superpower, because it shifts the aggressor, which no one has yet considered a serious contender. Most likely, we are talking about China, which will be able in just a few months to get their hands on the global economy.

Predictions about the future of Wolf Messing say that the United States will come under the influence of a protracted crisis of powerful commodity-money strike. It will be the beginning of the end is the most developed economy in the world.

The predictions for 2015 Messing mentions that Japan and Taiwan expect a strong destructive nuclear strike. And as mentioned above, Russia will be forced to cede part of its territory to the Chinese.

The Great Nausea


Howard Kunstler

Historians of the future, roasting rat kabobs over their campfires, will look back at the year 2016 and marvel at the death throes of the zombie republic that died eating its own brains. This grotesque Deep State lumbers from one misadventure of governance to the next consuming its prospects for a plausible future in a fugue of autophagy, inducing the great nausea that now settles over the land.

President Trump — really? We would be lucky if it only resulted in a revolt of the generals, and there goes 200-plus years of institutional heritage. Yet it cannot be denied that the Deep State needs to be kicked to the curb, stomped, water-boarded, and hung out to dry. The sad part is that the job might have been done by men of character, but incredibly the long-vaunted baby boomer generation did not manage to produce any, nor the so-called Gen-X now coming into its own power. And if such hypothetical figures do exist, why are they hiding in the thickets of public life?

Well, there is Bernie, after all. Credit must be given to this lone crusader for at least opposing the avatar of the Deep State, she whose “turn” must not be denied in the rotating management of rackets-and-grift that our politics have sunk to. He thrashed her roundly in the three primary contests over the weekend — so badly in the vote count that she may be suffering an existential hangover as I write. The fabled Democratic Party super-delegates may also be going through a dark night of the soul as they study the intractable anti-charisma of Hillary. Much as I admire Bernie’s chutzpah, his particular Old Left theories of wealth redistribution do not convince me — though the management of our dwindling capital surely lies at the heart of our problems. His nomination would go down in the Ripley’s Believe-It-Or-Not annals of the world’s greatest improbabilities.

Otherwise, the latest meme spreading across the web wires is how deeply the voters divide by sex: men flocking around Trump (or Machine Gun Ted Cruz), and the ladies standing at each mighty column of Hillary’s azure pant-suit. Yes, a national war of the sexes. Just what we need with all our shit falling apart. This sorry diversion results not from the triumph of feminism, as widely believed, but actually from the failure of American manhood. Proof of that, of course, is the ascendance of Trump, this punch-line of a political leader with all the gravitas of a hood ornament. History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce — thank you, Karl Marx, O peevish mischief-maker squirming upon your fabled boils!

Finally, what will take the Deep State down is not some lance-wielding armored savior on a white horse but the awful undertow of financial implosion that awaits as the seasons of 2016 turn. When faith in our money and the instruments represented in it goes, look out below. There are so many rifts in the international banking system that the vista begins to look like the spring ice break-up on the Lake of Nations. When the grifters can’t cash their checks — or move their pixels into the accounts receivable column — they will be immobilized. Of course, if that happens, so will everything else, including your ability to buy any more frozen pizzas.

Trump, Cruz, Hillary, and Bernie are signs that this poor paralyzed country needs to go through a convulsion to flush out all the toxic idiocy of this historical moment. Trigger warning: it may be the messiest revolution in history when it finally comes, there is so much dross to clear out of the system. Trump and Hillary are like two giant fistulas obstructing the national bowel. Of course, a lot of sentient Americans do not want their nation dying on the toilet like Elvis. The indignity of it! In the name of the founding fathers, please, someone, fetch the enema bag.

Events still lie hidden like bear traps on the path to “Decision 2016” as they like to say on the cable networks. Somewhere in London, Singapore, Shanghai, or New York, a 25-year-old coked-out Forex trader is going to tap the untoward keystroke that brings down a derivatives avalanche… or two brothers of Allah in some Berlin row-house will go forth one bright morning in vests of Semtex… and finally enough will be enough.
