Energy

Newly developed compound may enable sustainable, cost-effective, large-scale energy storage

To produce a cost-effective redox flow battery, researchers based at the South China University of Technology have synthesized a molecular compound that serves as a low-cost electrolyte, enabling a stable flow battery that retains 99.98% capacity per cycle.

Europe burns a controversial ‘renewable’ energy source: trees from the U.S.

As world leaders pledge more action on climate change, one so-called solution—burning trees for electricity—could undermine progress.

Environment

Glitter is an environmental disaster. So scientists invented an eco-friendly version

Instead of building glitter from toxic plastic, a thin, shimmery film from cellulose, a material found in the cell walls of plants, vegetables and fruit has been created.

SOM Proposes to Transform the Built Environment into a “Forest” of Absorbing Carbon at COP26

A firm has proposed the idea, Urban Sequoia, an architectural concept inspired by the ecosystem at the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow – COP26. The design features “forests of buildings” that isolate carbon and produce biomaterials that create a new ecological and resilient urban environment.

Health

New clues to the biology of long COVID are starting to emerge

Researchers have been scrambling to figure out why some people experience persistent, often debilitating symptoms after catching SARS-CoV-2. It remains unclear how often it occurs. But if only a small fraction of the hundreds of millions of people who’ve had COVID-19 are left struggling with long-term health problems, it’s a major public health problem.

Netherlands returns to partial lockdown amid COVID-19 surge

The Netherlands will return to a partial lockdown from Saturday after the government ordered restaurants and shops to close early and barred spectators from major sporting events in an effort to contain a rapid surge in COVID-19 cases.

    Letter to a colluder: Stop enabling tyranny

    https://off-guardian.org/2021/11/12/letter-to-a-colluder-stop-enabling-tyranny/

    A few hundred at the top, to plan and direct at every level; a few thousand to supervise and control (without a voice in policy) at every level; a few score thousand specialists (teachers, lawyers, journalists, scientists, artists, actors, athletes, and social workers) eager to serve or at least unwilling to pass up a job or to revolt; a million of the Pöbel, which sounds like ‘people’ and means ‘riffraff,’ to do what we would call the dirty work, ranging from murder, torture, robbery, and arson to the effort which probably employed more Germans in inhumanity than any other in Nazi history, the standing of ‘sentry’ in front of Jewish shops and offices in the boycott of April, 1933.”Milton Mayer, They Thought They Were Free: The Germans, 1933–45

    I’m willing to die to defend my liberty. Are you willing to die to take my liberty?

    No? Good. Then stop enforcing totalitarian measures against your neighbors on behalf of the tyrants, who wouldn’t hesitate to annihilate you. Stop planning, directing, supervising, controlling, and performing their dirty work. Become part of the resistance instead of an enabler of democidal despots.

    Whether you are a law enforcement officer, public health official, psychologist, scientist, medical professional, educator, employer, censor, propagandist, or any other agent of complicity in this war against the people, you are what makes dictatorships possible.

    You are what makes enslavement possible.You are what makes genocide possible.You are what makes the Biggest Lie in history possible.

    <…>

    Few of the individuals who slaughtered their fellow human beings were psychopaths initially. They were average folks just like you. They were simply doing their jobs, which required increasing levels of savagery over time. That is the process by which well-meaning individuals metamorphose into barbarous sociopaths.

    The only way to keep yourself from transmogrifying into a monstrous sadist is to alchemize your cowardice into courage NOW.

    Instead of being a tread in the panzer that is razing humanity, you can become a wrench in the gears.

    You have the power to fell the Goliaths. You have the power to expose the corrupt. You have the power to subvert the technocrats. You have the power to uncloak the transhumanists. You have the power to bring to justice the self-installed oppressors demolishing and reconstructing the world in their own malevolent image.

    You have the power NOT TO FOLLOW ORDERS.

    When I snap my fingers, you will awaken from your hypnosis.

    SNAP!

    It is time to wake up. It is time to redirect your aggression from the people to the powers-that-shouldn’t-be. It is time to recognize you are one of the targets of this fiendish agenda, too.

    Eventually, you will be replaced by robots. Then you will become one of the plebeians you presently persecute—and the few of us who survive the democide will be equally disempowered, dependent, divested of possessions, and enslaved to a totalitarian technocracy. Mass surveillance will monitor our every twitch, tallying credits and demerits to our social credit score in accordance with the autocratic algorithms.

    Charles Eisenstein--On insanity

    From 1984, the final paragraph

    “He gazed up at the enormous face [a poster of Big Brother]. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.”

    Greg Mannarino - Get Out Of The Dollar NOW!

    From Greg Mannarino, of Trader'sChoice.net, "SHOCK AND AWE: The US Dollar Value IS PLUMMETING! Get Out Of The Dollar NOW."

    Greg says that per the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the US Dollar is losing ~ 1% of its value every single month.  He warns people that the dollar is in freefall, and that it is imperative to take action to get out of the dollar [and into hard assets] NOW.  His favorite recommendation: physical silver.

    Greg and this website are my two go-to's for daily info. I just wish I followed Greg seriously 10 years ago. He's predicting a major stock market melt-up in the coming months and I'm positioned for that.

    Thanks Mark for suggesting Greg

    Mark brought Greg to my attention a year and a half ago. Sometimes Manarino goes off on some rants that get a little tiresome, but I do think he does have a good ability to really grasp what’s going on in the financial world.

    My instinct would have been to get out of the market two years ago and I had a hard time believing what he had to say, but he seems to have called things very accurately in the time I’ve been following him.

    he claims he’s going to be able to warn people before it’s time to get out, so I hope he’s right!

    Hubrid alert!

    Gonsette said she is disturbed by those who don’t follow the mainstream medical information of “best practice, sound research and science,” which she said will lead to the “future safety of health care will be compromised.”

    She is not one of us. Note well her outrage that others are not following orders.

    Freya said, "Anyone who would sell his freedom is not one of us."

    Thanks for outing yourself Gonsette.

    I have generally followed his advice buying options for the last couple years. Not sophisticated, just buying calls. I would have multiplied my money 20x over that period except I ignored his warnings when he said to get out of the market and I had to start over. Overall though I am beating the market by a long shot. I'm trying to be more careful now and trust his advice.

    On Energy

    It perplexes me that nobody on the forums and in the hoi-paloi appears to understand that our energy problems have been addressed. It would appear that those smug rising stars in California got it right when they said, "Like, we've got Technology, man,"

    Source 1

    Source 2

    Why the orchestrated wilful blindness? And how has this wilful blindness been contrived? Our ancestors were quick to adopt any new technology that could aid them in their survival; but suddenly we are Blind?

    I know of only one explanation, "They Walk Among Us." And they do not have our scruples.

    If public knowledge were to become widespread, societal disruption could ensue. The idea that some people are actually hubrids could cause fear and panic. It could pit humans against each other. Suspicion and paranoia could run rampant in the early part of The Change, when most people are not yet incorporated into the aliens' structure. The concept of trust would be destroyed, as humans hunt for supposed hubrids to eliminate them. Even abductees might be imperiled. Because most abductees are unknown even to themselves, everyone would fall under suspicion. This is a nightmarish vision, but it might be a realistic one if society were destroyed from within through knowledge that The Change is happening.

    Another scenario could mean a smooth and unknown transition for humans into another species. In this scenario, people would not know what is occurring until it is too late—if, indeed, it is not already too late. Eventually, there might be a point at which people begin to realize that others can control their thoughts and actions. By that time, however, The Change would be too advanced to be stopped—assuming it can be stopped. Eventually, most humans might be in a close relationship with a hubrid and thus toe the line for their new masters. When that happens, freedom of thought, privacy, self-determination, and individuality would almost certainly diminish greatly, if not disappear completely. Knowing what is happening to us would be meaningless.

    EDIT.

    That something is off-kilter would simply be disregarded by most people.

    Netherlands back into lockdown?

    They must have a really low vaccination rate.

    This is the same country that bragged about seizing 55,000 doses of Ivermectin that their citizens were trying to get hold of right?

    Yeah, no big plan being run here.  Its all just a series of comedic accidents committed by well intentioned buffoons: Laurel and Hardy's Pandemic.

    Vanishing Point

    There is a real product called VanishPoint® that retracts the needle after injecting the intent being to prevent needle-stick injuries from used syringes. Nothing deceptive there. However, the numerous other examples are totally fraudulent – the trick syringe (is that for the movie industry?), empty syringes without any payload injected, cap still on, thumbnail 'injection', total B$.

    Hi Mark_BC and  JimboJim,

    Yeah, Greg's prediction for a market melt-up, given his past history for good calls, got my attention too.  But I am not a trader, and am worried about being able to get out in time when the tides change, so I probably won't pursue it.  But I have a history of making bad market calls, so you'll probably do well if you do!

    Wireless information transfer with fast neutrons
     

    Malcolm J.JoyceaMichael D.AspinallaMackenzieClarkaEdwardDaleaHamishNyeaAndrewParkeraLukaSnojbJoeSpiresa

    "Here, we report on the configuration and operation of a nuclear instrumentation set-up designed to transmit digitally encoded information using fast neutrons. We demonstrate the potential of fast neutron radiation as a medium for wireless communications for applications where conventional electromagnetic transmission is either not feasible or is inherently limited."

    I am not smart enough in this niche to interpret the paper.  But it seems to be a legitimate paper on a way of communicating faster than light.

    Well Damn.  Something wonderful happening in the world and universe!!

    Fast neutrons

    "But it seems to be a legitimate paper on a way of communicating faster than light."

    Nope. At best it "might be able to communicate through concrete or rock over short distances. Fast neutrons do not travel faster than light, but considerable much slower than light.

    Indeed, indeed. No faster than light communication. Apart from that, you better make sure that you do not cross the path of these high energy neutrons (fast = high kinetic energy), the have the ugly habit of doing a lot of bodily harm…

    Edit: I read the paper. The method allows for “wireless” communication through solid obstacles. Nowhere they claim faster than light communication, they do mention potential hazards, how they worked around it, and the future outlook.

    It is well known that neutron exposure can cause some isotopes to activate to become radioactive variants, such as in the case of cobalt-60, and hence it is worthy of note that the transmission demonstrated in this work was achieved with a flux maintained at a level too low for any such activation to be observed. Similarly, important radiobiological effects can result from exposure to neutron radiation; however, the transmission we report here was achieved within regulatory constraints and with dose levels maintained to be as low as reasonably practicable. It is anticipated that in-circuit applications would function at fluences several orders of magnitude less than this.

    Podkletnov's gravity waves.

    You might be interested in Podkletnov's gravity waves that have been clocked in at 80 times the speed of light and are unaffected by any matter they pass through.

    Looking for radio signals from space might be a lost cause.

    Albert has a lot to answer for.
