A crash course in changing the world.

Now even Roads generate electricity !!

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 viable technologies capable of producing clean electricity from the kinetic energy of moving vehicles, including cars, buses, trucks, trains and rapid transit. To facilitate this, Octillion has formed a new, wholly owned subsidiary, Kinetic Power Corp., specifically focused on harnessing the kinetic energy of vehicles in motion, and more broadly, working to enhance the sustainability and energy efficiency of transportation infrastructures and systems.

“In the United States, nearly 70 percent of our electricity is generated by coal and natural gas, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration,” said Nicholas S. Cucinelli, Octillion president and CEO. “The environmental impact and rising costs of these nonrenewable fuels, along with the potential doubling of global electricity consumption in the coming years, clearly illustrates the urgent need for more creative, sustainable methods for generating electricity.”

So how does it work? The weight of vehicles moving onto and off plates under road surfaces can provide movement that can be harnessed to generate electricity that is then sent to the power grid. The company has other ideas for energy generation as well, like the development of the first-of-its-kind transparent window capable of generating electricity. When thin films of silicon nanoparticles are deposited (sprayed) onto silicon substrates, ultraviolet light is absorbed and converted into electrical current, which, like the electricity from a battery, can be stored or sent to the electrical grid. Through the company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Sungen Energy Inc., researchers are working to develop technologies with the potential to convert glass building facades and skylights into energy-generating resources economically while preserving the traditional viewscape and day lighting attributes valued by building occupants and architects.

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

The meal

It is 7'oclock, I was late home from work due to an assignment that i wanted to get ahead on. By the time I get home I am feeling extremley tired and I cannot be bothered to make a proper meal. I walk to the fridge and open it to see what there is for me to eat. All of the out of date foodstuffs have been automaticaly thrown away by the fridge, they will be recycled tomorrow as animal feed or something. I see i have organic local eggs and some local cheese. Foods are vacc** sealded for easy…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.
