A crash course in changing the world.

LEARN3- Windbelt-- windpower not from a windmill

Star light, Star Bright....
natual power- light my lights ;)

So, actually completely randomly while goggling for information, I clicked a link and boom- not solar information... but a company:


"The Private Sector Liaison Officer (PSLO) Network is a group of 100
business intermediary organizations in 80 countries around the world
working to foster trade and investment between countries with the sup-
port of the World Bank Group’s (WBG) products and services. PSLOs
facilitate companies’ access to WBG business opportunities, services
and knowledge, and act as the voice of the private sector in advising
the WBG on how to better engage companies on development issues."


Anyway- so my educational post on a wind power generation that is not a windmill!

URL: http://www.humdingerwind.com/

So, what they did is they used vibrations to go over a magnet- that generates energy. Its really neat.

"On the smallest scales, Humdinger has developed a 'microBelt' that can free the millions of wireless sensor nodes around the world from batteries. By sipping small airflows on the sides of highways, the inside of air-conditioning ducts, or at remote science stations, the microBelt provides continuous power to sensors that detect highway traffic, CO/humidity in HVAC systems, or geological activity. This information may then transmitted wirelessly to a central processing center -- without batteries. Smarter grids, smarter urban centers, and smarter buildings -- smarts that can now be powered by wind. (see Micro for more information)"

They have different sizes, from micro to large. The micro-ones look very promising because #1) they are small enough to carry (smaller than the size of the palm of your hand!) #2 can power tiny devices with ease. #3 It scales up nicely. They are in experimental test sites now and are looking at a display for first commercial sales in mid- 2010. It looks comparable in price to other forms of energy, and is safer due to fewer moving parts like wind turbines. Looks like very neat energy innovation!

Neat stuff. :D

Hey Crystal, You lead the network for resourcefulness, and for that, I gave you another +1 for resourcefulness. Plus, you found some cool businesses in this blog. I'm going to go check them out...

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. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

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.
