More on Water to Fuel

Like the dream of lead into gold, using water for fuel has "fueled" research, dreamers and inventors for years. However research is increasingly showing this is possible. Here are some stories you may not have seen.

Design a new way to power something you use every day

Just lol a little fiction for thought... I'm sure some knowledgeable people will post some useful realistic possibilities in response...

Aren't micro transmitters and conversion modules wonderful? Using everything possible in my house, it all now generates electricity. It all started with unused but still functioning solar panels on the roof(true fact). Realizing they had once been attached to a huge water heater that no longer worked, (pure fiction from here on out)…

Nothing is more important than family

Nothing is more important than family. Everything starts there. We strive to protect. We strive to provide. And we fail and we succeed. As we move from existence through that bare survival stage that rarely allows thoughts beyond immediate needs, we progress to increasing awareness, desires, hopes-and fears of losing…

learn1-once again

This time around, I'm taking on another point from the innovation guideline:

talk to the people who have the problem – and LISTEN to what they have to say

Please recognize that it sounds simple, but isn't. You also need to know that not many people do it. Let's look at why they don't and why we have to learn it.

First of all most people don't…

My cell phone went off. I looked up. I opened the drawer where I keep it. I ran through the possibilities. War? Another predicted famine? More flooding from tsunamis or artic flow melts? Did I miss another major Easrthquake? I'd check the news after...

It was-looking at the clock-Two Am. I was finishing another long day, teaching, working with the medical team, and then planting a little barley, outside the little village in Morroco, where I live. At this hour, I'd just…

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein.

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
