About the annoying voiceover on the home page: use Zap to turn that off.

https://users.resist.ca/~kirstena/pagecomfrey.html }Because of its healing properties and the Velcro-like hairs, you can use a comfrey leaf just like a bandaid. If you want to sterilize it, dip it in boiling water, then let it cool and apply to minor wound. Comfrey is known for its healing qualities. It was referred to as “Knitbone” traditionally, as it is known for knitting together tissues and promoting cell growth. It was also referred to as “Bruisewort” as it is known to reduce swelling and bruising when applied to injuries as a poultice or compress. Leaves in poultices and compresses have been applied to varicose veins and arthritic joints, as well as diaper rash. Warm, smashed or bruised leaves applied to an inflamed injury are said to help reduce swelling and bruising, as well as reduce scarring.

http://www.carmarthenshire.gov.uk/english/environment/sustainability/carmarthenshirecommunitydirectory/pages/communitygardensandfood.aspx }”Carmarthenshire County Council’s Housing team have been working closely with tenants, residents and young people to improve the areas around which they live and to develop environmental enhancement and community food growing schemes.”
Intro: Sites are shown from many popular geographic areas, such that different communities can see each other’s work, borrowing good ideas from each others and perhaps networking their areas together. Usually one site per geographic area is all that is shown. Some of these co-ops are more community-active, some are more politically-active, etc., some are simpler. We have avoided the big business health food stores, since there is something inappropriate about them; think of, say, Whole Foods. Note: “coop” denotes the extant term “coop”, i.e., a place where chickens live. A
co-operative enterprise is abbreviated “co-op”, that is, with the hyphen.

http://www.greenstar.coop/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=586&Itemid=219 }”Paper or Plastic? How ‘Bout Neither?” Another good co-op from New York. “GreenStar, like many co-ops, has taken steps to help combat global warming and needless litter by implementing a few simple, but significant changes. We encourage customers to bring their own bags by offering a $.05 rebate per bag brought in to reuse and by selling reusable bags in the store, at a range of prices. Recognizing that many people will still want to be offered a bag while checking out, GreenStar switched a few years ago to more sustainable options.” Recommended that you read this article, and that Greenstar increase the rebate to 10¢ per bag brought.

III. Energy Systems.
Note: Some of the energy systems presented are speculative or experimental. The object for the reader is to think-outside-the-container. What you think isn’t possible, for you, isn’t possible; but this holds the rest of us back. The future has arrived; carpe diem.

http://www.aidis.org.br/span/ftp/OFFSHORE%20ALTERNATIVE%20ENERGY%20GENERATION.pdf }wave energy, tidal, marine currents, thermal energy. a thorough PDF. DL 2011. You can check out what happened at http://pdfdatabase.com/search/energy-generation-book.html }and see what happened to the link. This important subject is hard to find info on. For example, Wiki has been having problems with it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Wave_power }scroll down and you’ll see the same pdf that I listed, there. We’re very dismayed to report that most of Wiki’s links are dead now, too, except for http://www.brooke-ocean.com/s_horse1.html }which is only a sensor and doesn’t generate electricity. There’s more scientific info on http://www.brooke-ocean.com/s_horse1.html }which is Wiki’s archived page on it. This page http://pdfdatabase.com/search/bearden-bedini-free-energy-generation.html }lists the same pdf above again, but with some other interesting stuff. This is probably the best page on offshore alternative energy generation that’s extant: http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Rough+seas+ahead%3a+confronting+challenges+to+jump-start+wave+energy.-a0217847380 }but it’s bureaucratic, not scientific.

http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/tesla/esp_tesla_17.htm }Tesla coils are composed of coupled resonant electric circuits. Tesla developed a series of coils that produced high-voltage, high-frequency currents. In the majority of Tesla’s experiments, he used machinery of his own design to produce the Tesla effect.
http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/tesla/esp_tesla_36.htm }The radiant energy system is a self-oscillating capacitive system. Once it is set into oscillation, very little power is expended in keeping it going. Because it is an electrostatic oscillating system, only a small amount of charge moves through the system per cycle, that is, the coulomb per seconds = amps are low. If the charge is used at a low rate, the energy stored in the system will be turned into heat at a slow rate enabling the oscillations to continue for a long period of time. Tesla’s “Coil For Electro Magnets,” patent #512,340 is a very special coil design because, unlike an ordinary coil made by turning wire on a tube form, this one uses two wires laid next to each other on a form but with the end of the first one connected to the beginning of the second one. In this patent Tesla explains that the double coil will store many times the energy of a conventional coil.

http://www.crnano.org/benefits.htm }Overview: Molecular manufacturing (MM) can solve many of the world’s current problems. For example, water shortage is a serious and growing problem. Most water is used for industry and agriculture; both of these requirements would be greatly reduced by products made by molecular manufacturing. Infectious disease is a continuing scourge in many parts of the world. Simple products like pipes, filters, and mosquito nets can greatly reduce this problem. Information and communication are valuable, but lacking in many places. Computers and display devices would become stunningly cheap. Electrical power is still not available in many areas. The efficient, cheap building of light, strong structures, electrical equipment, and power storage devices would allow the use of solar thermal power as a primary and abundant energy source. Environmental degradation is a serious problem worldwide. High-tech products can allow people to live with much less environmental impact. Many areas of the world cannot rapidly bootstrap a 20th century manufacturing infrastructure. Molecular manufacturing technology can be self-contained and clean; a single packing crate or suitcase could contain all equipment required for a village-scale industrial revolution. Finally, MM will provide cheap and advanced equipment for medical research and health care, making improved medicine widely available. Much social unrest can be traced directly to material poverty, ill health, and ignorance. MM can contribute to great reductions in all of these problems, and in the associated human suffering.
http://genesdev.cshlp.org/content/27/22/2397.full#abstract-2 }Historically, biomedical research has been based on two paradigms. First, measurements of biological behaviors have been based on bulk assays that average over large populations. Second, these behaviors have then been crudely perturbed by systemic administration of therapeutic treatments. Nanotechnology has the potential to transform these paradigms by enabling exquisite structures comparable in size with biomolecules as well as unprecedented chemical and physical functionality at small length scales. Here, we review nanotechnology-based approaches for precisely measuring and perturbing living systems. Remarkably, nanotechnology can be used to characterize single molecules or cells at extraordinarily high throughput and deliver therapeutic payloads to specific locations as well as exhibit dynamic biomimetic behavior. These advances enable multimodal interfaces that may yield unexpected insights into systems biology as well as new therapeutic strategies for personalized medicine.

The doughnut-shaped reactor at Culham, known as the Joint European Torus, or JET, can take an amount of fuel about equal in mass to a postage stamp and heat it to more than 100 million degrees Celsius — hotter than the sun. This creates plasma, which in turn releases energy. Eventually, scientists hope to create enough energy, and at sustained levels, to produce electricity using steam-driven generators.

JET is very similar to the ITER nuclear fusion reactor, an international project which is being built in the south of France. Whereas NIF and Sandia create an instantaneous fusion reaction using heat and pressure, ITER and JET confine the fusing plasma for a much longer duration using strong magnetic fields, and are thus more inclined towards the steady production of electricity. JET’s breakthrough was the installation of a new beryllium-lined wall and tungsten floor inside the tokamak — the doughnut-shaped inner vessel that confines 11-million-degrees-Celsius plasma (pictured above).

Technically, its a spheromak, which means that instead of a torus, it’s a simple oblate spheroid. There’s no central core and it doesn’t need the large, complex superconducting magnets that ITER uses. Instead the magnetic fields are produced by putting electrical fields into the center of the plasma using high temperature superconducting tapes wrapped around the vessel, so, in a sense, the plasma contains itself.

Their manufacturing also requires less material and is more cost-efficient. In addition, energy storage capacity will significantly improve with the use of nanomaterials for lithium-ion batteries. This is by far the most important battery technology for energy storage since the early 1990s.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_applications_of_nanotechnology }People in the fields of science and engineering have already begun developing ways of utilizing nanotechnology for the development of consumer products. Benefits already observed from the design of these products are an increased efficiency of lighting and heating, increased electrical storage capacity, and a decrease in the amount of pollution from the use of energy. Benefits such as these make the investment of capital in the research and development of nanotechnology a top priority. Carbon nanotubes are another possible material for use in an ultracapacitor. Carbon nanotubes are created by vaporizing carbon and allowing it to condense on a surface. When the carbon condenses, it forms a nanosized tube composed of carbon atoms. This tube has a high surface area, which increases the amount of charge that can be stored. The low reliability and high cost of using carbon nanotubes for ultracapacitors is currently an issue of research. While LEDs have been around for decades, this company and others like it have been developing a special variant of LED called the white LED. White LEDs consist of semi-conducting organic layers that are only about 100 nanometers in distance from each other and are placed between two electrodes, which create an anode, and a cathode. When voltage is applied to the system, light is generated when electricity passes through the two organic layers. This is called electroluminescence. The semiconductor properties of the organic layers are what allow for the minimal amount of energy necessary to generate light.

When that threshold is exceeded, you feel uneasy, uncomfortable—even overwhelmed—and you deal with these feelings by using one or more coping mechanisms. These include anxiety, anger, depression, overwhelm, sadness, substance abuse, overeating, and many others. Incredibly, Holosync® provides a stimulus to the brain that pushes that threshold higher. My view is that all so-called dysfunctional feelings and behaviors (including those I just listed above), are attempts to cope with being pushed over this threshold.

http://www.impossiblecure.com/ }Impossible Cure: The Promise of Homeopathy provides an in-depth and exciting account of the history, philosophy, science, and experience of homeopathic medicine. In April 2003, it was published and it went on to become the best-selling introductory book worldwide, with translations into several foreign languages (currently: German, Greek, Arabic, and Czech). It is not a how-to book. Rather it, is a very broad introductory text that covers history, philosophy, scientific studies, methods of treatment and dosing, legality issues, and more. For this reason, it is also used as a textbook at several schools. I believe the key to its success, however, is that it includes many testimonials of cure from around the world, and for a variety of physical, mental, and emotional ailments.
http://www.india-herbs.com/pages/about_ayurveda }Ayurveda is a whole medical system which integrates and balances the body, mind, and spirit (thus, it is considered “holistic”). This balance is necessary for contentment and good health. Ayurveda also proposes treatments for specific health problems. A primary aim of Ayurvedic medicine is to cleanse the body of substances that can cause disease. This helps re-establish the harmony and balance necessary for optimal health. Ayurvedic Medicine is also called Ayurveda. It is a system of medicine that originated in India several thousand years ago. The term Ayurveda combines two Sanskrit words: ayur, which means life, and veda, which means science or knowledge. Ayurveda means “the science of life.”

http://www.renresearch.com/consciousness.html }Interestingly, just as my work as a computer scientist became more and more practical, my inner life became increasingly metaphysical. Over the years, I have come to believe that much more exists than meets our limited awareness; the universe is not the mundane three-dimensional mechanistic place that it appears to be. Indeed, I believe it is filled with energy fields and forces we have yet to measure. It is through an examination of human interaction with these energies that, I believe, humanity will ultimately expand its understanding of consciousness. The primary goal of this paper is to describe what I believe we may find in these explorations: that consciousness is an active force that we can exert upon the universe, not merely a passive perception or awareness of that universe.

She discusses the importance of studying the Russian mystic, G. I. Gurdjieff’s work and his concept of the 4th way. “Amy Lansky’s new book is an inspiring and far-ranging investigation of contemporary consciousness research. In her program to spare us from the madness around us, she draws on Rudolf Steiner, Gurdjieff, Rupert Sheldrake, Dean Radin, and many others. She is also encouraging us to explore the transformation of our consciousness as a way to increase our peace of mind, happiness, and what the Buddhists call liberation from the wheel of suffering. Who would not want that?”

EZ water is simply water that is more polar, which means that the negative and positive charges are more separated than ordinary water. This results in a lot of interesting properties of the water… I’ve been appreciating the fact that many people with chronic health issues have low oxygen and this could be from bad blood flow, and we discuss how that may come from a lack of EZ water. Water inside our cells is more structured or ordered – it has a negative charge and functions like a battery. When you drink a vegetable juice, you are drinking cell water or EZ water – because plants have cells and the liquid inside of them are EZ….

4. Q: Is it true that Tim Buckley committed suicide?
5. Q: Is Crafty really that strong of a program, that I can’t win at chess against it?
A: Alas, yes. Sorry. However, if you like to lose, you’re still welcome to play against it, that’s why we put it on the list for you.
6. Q: Are there any free chess programs that can beat Crafty?
A: There were. Slow Chess used to always win against it, but that was an older version of Crafty, 20.14. Since we found the newest version, 23.4, the situation has reversed, and now Slow Chess cannot beat Crafty anymore, but can draw with it.
7. Q: Why do you include websites from businesses and commercial companies in your Alternative Energy section?
A: We want to show you that there are commercial firms who are developing alternative energy sources. If you’re reading this, and you are in a Government, you might be interested in using their services. We also want to show what a good website looks like, at the same time.
