New energy source: Blacklight announces sustained production of enormous electrical power from water plasma

New energy source: Blacklight announces sustained production of enormous electrical power from water plasma | health tips and milestones | Scoop.it

BlackLight Power, Inc. today announces that it achieved sustained electricity production from a primary new energy source by using photovoltaic technology to transform brilliant plasma, with power comprising millions of watts of light, directly into electricity.

 

By applying a very high current through its water-based solid fuel in a process called Solid Fuel-Catalyst-Induced-Hydrino-Transition (SF-CIHT) technology, water ignites into brilliant plasma, a bright flash of extraordinary optical power that has a power density of over a million times that of any prior controllable reaction.

 

Remarkably, the light emitted from the plasma is nearly a perfect spectral equivalent of the Sun, but at 50,000 times the intensity.

 

BlackLight Power has now successfully converted the brilliant plasma directly into electricity using photovoltaic cells (solar cells) which have been increasingly perfected to convert the Sun spectrum into electricity for more than five decades costing an estimated $1 trillion.

Humanity should finally realize that this kind of new energy source can save the planet and lower the impact of climate change. I hope that for once we will use our mind instead of corporate greed to change our future.

BlackLight Power, Inc. today announces that it achieved sustained electricity production from a primary new energy source by using photovoltaic technology to transform brilliant plasma, with power comprising millions of watts of light, directly into electricity.

 

The proposed 10 MW device that would be 1 ft2, [actually the device is about one cubic feet] would entail a 60-toothed gear spinning at 200 rpm, making the water chamber size a few micro liters, lasting a millisecond, during which two electrodes would create a supersonic-expanding plasma that goes into a magnetohydrodyamic converter, then directly into electricity, cleanly, safely...

There is a video which explains the technology:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cuzlyu4czYs&feature=player_embedded

Is it the gluten or is it the glyphosate?

Is it the gluten or is it the glyphosate? | health tips and milestones | Scoop.it

New evidence points to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, as the culprit in the rise of gluten intolerance, celiac disease and irritable bowel syndrome.

 

A study just published in the Journal of Interdisciplinary Toxicology (Vol. 6(4): 159–184 ) by Anthony Samsel and Stephanie Seneff explains how the nearly ubiquitous use of glyphosate as a crop desiccant is entering our food chain and making us ill.

Honey May be Superior to Over-the-Counter Medications For Cough in Children

Honey May be Superior to Over-the-Counter Medications For Cough in Children | health tips and milestones | Scoop.it
In the latest issue of the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, researchers at the Pennsylvania State University's College of Medicine have reported...

 

...that buckwheat honey, which provides symptomatic relief for nighttime cough and sleep difficulty associated with upper respiratory tract infection in children, could substitute the use of dextromethorphan, the main ingredient in over-the-counter cough suppressants.


The research team, led by Dr.Ian Paul, an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the Penn State College of Medicine and Penn State Children’s Hospital, conducted the double-blinded randomized study on 105 children suffering from upper respiratory infections and nocturnal symptoms, and demonstrated that a single dose of honey, administered 30 minutes before bedtime, is more effective than honey-flavored dextromethorphan (DM) or no treatment, in relieving the symptoms of upper respiratory infection. The researchers also noticed that children administered DM showed almost similar effects as children without any treatment.

Marijuana Smokers Breathe Easy Says The University of Alabama

Marijuana Smokers Breathe Easy Says The University of Alabama | health tips and milestones | Scoop.it
The University of Alabama at Birmingham along with the University of California San Francisco conducted a 20 year study of over 5,000 individuals to test effects of smoking marijuana to the lungs.

 

Researchers were surprised to find an increased airflow with increased exposure to marijuana up to a certain level. The results are surprising, because marijuana smoke contains similar noxious ingredients and chemicals as tobacco smoke, which is known to impair lung function. Until now it has been unclear whether regular marijuana smoking led to the same injuries to the lungs. It was speculated by Dr. Keresz that the way pot is smoked (the common exercise of holding one's breath after inhaling cannabis smoke to increase its heady effects) might have some cause to people to doing well with the lung function test. Pulmonologist, Dr. Donald Tashkin from the University of California also added that one reason marijuana smoke might not be as harmful as tobacco smoke, despite containing similar noxious ingredients, may be the fact that its active ingredient, THC, has anti-inflammatory effects. “We don’t know for sure,” he said, “but a very reasonable possibility is that THC may actually interfere with the development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.”

Aspartame used in Diet Coke linked to cancer and premature births

Aspartame used in Diet Coke linked to cancer and premature births | health tips and milestones | Scoop.it
PASome worrying news for those of us who are addicted to a daily Diet Coke or three, as an immediate safety review on sweetener aspartame has been...

 

One study linked aspartame with cancer, while another study of 60,000 pregnant women found that the amount of aspartame consumed by mothers-to-be could potentially increase the danger of premature birth.

 

However, health watchdogs including the Food Standards Agency (FSA) have so far said it does not pose a risk to health.

 

Now EU officials have asked the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to accelerate the scheduling of a safety review planned for 2020, following requests by a number of MEPs.

A Giant Basket That Uses Condensation to Gather Drinking Water

A Giant Basket That Uses Condensation to Gather Drinking Water | health tips and milestones | Scoop.it

Vittori hopes to have two WarkaTowers erected in Ethiopia by 2015 and is looking for financial rainmakers who'd like to seed these tree-inspired structures across the country.

 

His stunning water towers stand nearly 30 feet tall and can collect over 25 gallons of potable water per day by harvesting atmospheric water vapor.

Great design and great technology ... water from the air!

Stephanie Martinez's curator insight, April 3, 2014 11:07 AM

this sounds like a good concept and coming from a great place to help out this community but you also have to take in consideration the bugs that can potentially contaminate the water by easily getting through the mesh barrier. As well as the deterioration of the mesh, constructed of plastic, the sun would deem this fabric useless in under a year. so the maintenance required to keep this project working and collecting clean water.

Consciousness TV | ** 7 Reasons Kale Is the New Beef ** | health tips and milestones | Scoop.it

7 billion people are now standing on the little scraps of land that we share with some 55 billion rather large animals raised for food each year.... Sustainable: Kale grows to maturity in 55 to 60 days versus a cow raised for beef for an average of 18-24 months. Kale can grow in most climates and is relatively easy and low impact to grow at home or on a farm. To raise one pound of beef requires 16 pounds of grain, 11 times as much fossil fuel and more than 2,400 gallons of water.

Green tea found to reduce disability in the elderly

Green tea found to reduce disability in the elderly | health tips and milestones | Scoop.it
(Medical Xpress) -- A lot of research has been done over the past several years looking into the health benefits of green tea.

 

As a result, scientists have found that regular consumption of the beverage leads to a reduction in several maladies often associated with aging, such as osteoporosis, stroke and cognitive impairment. But until now, according to the authors of a new study on its benefits, no such studies have been undertaken to determine if regular tea drinking provides other benefits, such as a reduction in functional disabilities. Because of this, a research project was undertaken by a team from Tokyo’s Graduate School of Medicine, and they have found that older people who drink more green tea tend to have less functional disabilities than do those who don’t. They have published their findings in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
