The core of this technology is simply sand.
The sand is the raw material used to make wafers that can make electricity.
Oxygen is pumped in on one side and natural gas on the other. The two combine inside the cell to create a chemical reaction that produces electricity. No burning, no combustion, no power lines from outside
A half-dozen big companies have already bought this technology at a cost of $700,000 to $800,000. But Sridhar’s (the inventor - Bloom… Continue

There’s enough power in trees to run an electronic circuit, says a new study.
A study last year led by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) found that plants generate up to 200 millivolts when one electrode is placed in a plant and the other in the surrounding soil.
University of Washington (UW) associate professor of electrical engineering and study co-author have since started a company developing forest sensors that exploit this new power source. The UW team sought… Continue

Cows. And in fact, farm animals in general. Although it lacks charm, manure is an energy powerhouse, releasing countless tons of natural methane. A study at the University of Texas has estimated that this manure could represent 100 billion kwH of electricity a year. And there’s more: cows also generate methane in other ways that could yet be put to work.

Let’s keep those cars on the road – because the weight of vehicles driving over metal plates could be used to generate electricity. (Perfect for lining public transport routes).
Usually you expect cars to require a power source. Now if what a company that calls itself an incubator of energy ideas comes to fruition, the actual movement of cars over the road might generate electricity. Octillion Corp. says it is devoting some of its resources to the development of safe, economically… Continue

People are shouting all over the place..cause its party time ( but this sound energy is powering up the party!)
They are dancing on the dance floor..jumpin like on a hot pate ( but this jumping activity is powering up the party!)
Wind,solar -- powers up the party--due to the latest tehnology -- the power ball..converts solar and wind energy at the same time. All builders build power balls in their buildings (or better called power eggs!)

Batteries made with microbes could help generate power by cleaning up organic waste at the same time.
Sewage is loaded with energy-rich sugars that researchers have struggled for years to convert into useful power. To do so, investigators have experimented with nature's experts on breaking down waste — bacteria.
"It's kind of like the movie 'The Matrix,'" said environmental engineer Bruce Logan at Penn State University. "Instead of wiring people up to generate electricity,… Continue

Taste and nutrition do not always go hand in hand.
I wish to separate them.
Nutrition - 3 litres of nutrition shake. - Contains all the daily amount of Water and nutrition needed. No need to take nething else. Manufactuting on a large scale. And supplied to all communities via centralized pipelines - just like water is nowadays.
taste - all sort of fumes,liquid,solid for different tastes and pleasure.

Under the law 25 kg of rice or wheat at Rs 3 to each family below the poverty line would be given
The government is working on a draft Food Security Bill, which will be placed before an Empowered Group of Ministers (EGoM) set up to deal with it, Minister of State for Agriculture KV Thomas said.
"Consultations have been held with, and inputs received from, the states and other stake-holders, based on which the various issues have been placed before an EGoM constituted for… Continue

A new study has determined that the melting of glaciers due to global warming might trigger food shortages in India and China.
According to a report in New Scientist, the irrigation water vital for the grain crops that feed India and China is at risk of drying up, as global warming melts the glaciers that feed Asia’s biggest rivers.
Rains feed the Ganges, Yellow and Yangtze Rivers in India and China during the monsoon season, but during the dry season, they depend heavily… Continue

Don’t fight culture (If people cook by stirring their stews, they’re not going to use a solar oven, no matter what you do to market it. Make them a better stove instead.)
This is true. People are naturally resistant to change. Hence effort must be concentrated on improving the existing methods than creating new ones.
