The New Millennium : The Choice is Yours

“Faced with dwindling scarced resources and an ever increasing population, the overuse of the earth only spell destruction for mankind, and mankind is unable to solve the problems of the world, we have come to a crossroad where we have to make the ultimate choice of sustainability, to survive and enter the new age, life will go on on earth, but mankind has come to a crossroad, to face God or to run away, to embrace good instead of evil, to abandon our selfish desires and sin, destroy our weapons of war(nuclear), move to the new millennium where God is our provider where sin doesn’t exist anymore, no sickness and no poverty, enough food on the table and a job for everyone, where you reap what you sow, keeping your riches in heaven, for generations to come. Welcome to the New Millennium, the Choice is Yours to make, for every inhabitant on earth. Time is running out.”

If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth. Numbers 30:2
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14
And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. Luke 21:11

I do not see the earth disappearing in december 2012, life will go on with a new perspective, that God is Almighty and all around us. Events and signs in the heavens and earth in the coming months will reveal what God has in mind to force mankind to turn back to him, I am a firm believer in destiny and I believe you can change your destiny if you pray hard enough, unless that happens, mankind will be in one of the roughest ride since the beginning of time, only the total destruction of nuclear weapons can peace be returned to earth, to bring in the new millennium.

A ‘Free Energy’ Gravity Wheel Power Generator For Clean And Cheap Energy!

Russian inventor, Mikhail Dmitriyev contacted me on January 28 to let me know about his gravity motor. He has apparently devised a mechanism whereby static gravitational pull can be harnessed to generate useful energy.
He has been working on various iterations over the years. A more recent one is shown to the right. In it, a small motor shown at about the 2-o-clock location spins a deflector mechanism clockwise. The deflectors push dangling weights to the right. Being on a counter-clockwise ratchet, this causes those evenly-spaced weights to stay outward long enough to cause the larger wheel to be imbalanced and thus turn clockwise.
The claim is that the energy required to turn the small motor is much less than the energy gained from the imbalanced larger wheel turning a generator. It reminds me of the system devised by British inventor, Bobby Amarasingam, the AOGFG, which he is in process of taking commercial. From what I can gather, AOGFG is further along in engineering market-ready iterations which can produce substantial power.
As I look at the photos and the animation of Mikhail’s setup, it seems to me like it would be very easy to build. I could do it. A junior high student could do it from a kit.
He said that “Many enthusiasts in Russia have already made the device for home use.” I asked him to give me an example of the input/output power, to which he replied:

A typical instance in the range 0.5 – 5 kW. The average size (1500 * 1500 * 700) mm. The average weight of 200 kg. Rotational speed (60 – 120) rpm. Design-folding. Costs here in the $(500 – 2000). This handmade mechanical part, without the electrical generator (output). Industrial production (assembly line) should be much cheaper. The most expensive items – overrunning clutches, Niodim strong magnets and output electrical generator (alternator).
Now, under my leadership, a firm builds an instance of an output power of 50 kW. This will be a multistage amplifier (4 stages). At the entrance of only 100 watts needed. An electric generator is only at the last output stage.

The PCT patent application describes this mechanism as a torque amplifier, but doesn’t mention that more energy comes out than what is put in.
Mikhail said that he is NOT planning to take his device commercial because of the corruption in his country which would steal the technology away from him. Meanwhile, he says he has been helping many people to implement the technology into power generators they can use at home – sometimes powering those homes entirely.
I’ve approached him about helping him open source the technology, to expedite the process of validating, replicating, characterizing, optimizing, and improving the design for rapid worldwide deployment; with some revenue opportunities along the way in selling plans, kits, components, and finished units. I would ask up front here that anyone who goes commercial with this design remit a 7% royalty, a majority of which we at PES Network, Inc. will remit to Mikhail, retaining some to help administer this project and promulgate the knowledge, including providing income to the key players in the project, such as those who prepare the plans, do the translations, find local parts, etc….
On January 20, 2011 6:26 AM MST, Mikhail wrote:

Hi Sterling,
Yes, I’m willing to work with you to open source the technology.
This will be discussed in future correspondence.
I think that first you need to personally make sure that the device works as claimed. To do this, make a demo version directly at your workshop. This will be the most persuasive and credible evidence.
If you agree, then I’ll send you a very simple scheme which you can make in just a couple of days. Compact desktop version (components only) will cost about $100.

Of course I told him yes.
COMMENTARY:   The Mikhail Dmitriyev free energy gravity wheel power generator certainly has the appearances of a commercial free energy generator.  I am impressed with the 50-to-1 ratio of energy imputs to energy produced by the generator, but like Sterling Allan, would require a live demonstration under different working conditions to prove feasibility, scalability and energy output levels.  The Dmitriev gravity wheel power generator has a lot going for it, including simplistic design, scalability, low production costs, and very high energy output at relatively low RPM’s.    
Dmitriev provdes a table showing different configurations of his gravity flywheel energy generation, including different sized flywheels, watts produced, energy input requirements, energy input to output ratios and energy output produced.  Unfortunately, everything is in Russian.
I had a look at the Alpha Omega Galaxy Freefall Generator (AOGFG), and it is of a completely different design than the Dmitriev gravity wheel power generation, and uses one flywheel with four arms extending outward from the flywheel, each arm holding a rotor and powerful magnets to produce energy.  The AOGFG is a lot more complex, requiring precision machined bicycle parts and magnets, and it would take a unit the size of a washing machine to generate enough energy to supply a house.  I assume that you can increase energy output by adding additional flywheels in parallel or adding more arms to the flywheel and adding additional rotors.  No specifications were available for the AOGFG.

From the looks of things, there is no shortage of flywheel gravity energy generators that use magnets and an initial power source to crank up the flywheel.   They all claim that the energy output exceeds the amount inputed.  All the inventor’s appear to be in a rush to get to market, but in my opinion, these flywheel gravity energy generators should be thoroughly beta-tested under different environmental and working conditions for an extended period before commercialization.

There is a possibility of this device with a design of a standing fan with a storage device which uses water and hydrogen as a backup power to be utilised in every home to save electricity, imagine cutting your utility bills by up to 70% of your present bills.

"Light Field Technology" will radically change how we view the Universe

A radical new camera that lets you adjust the focus after you take a picture began shipping this week.

The Lytro is the creation of Ren Ng, who started work on the digital camera while studying for a doctorate in computer science at Stanford University in California.
The telescope-shaped camera uses what is known as “light field technology” to allow the focal point of a digital image to be changed after the picture is taken, a feature that Lytro calls “shoot now, focus later.”
Clicking on a Lytro picture displayed on a computer screen allows a viewer to shift the focus from a subject in the foreground, for example, to a subject in the background.
The Lytro can do this because it uses powerful sensors to capture significantly more light than a conventional camera.
Lytro chief executive Ng, who was born in Malaysia and raised in Australia, describes the images as “living pictures” because of the ability to manipulate them.
“This is a very exciting time for our growing Lytro team,” he said in a blog post to mark the shipments of the first models. “We finally get to see how you use the Lytro camera to create and share your own living pictures.”
When Lytro pictures are shared online, the “light field engine” travels with each image so anyone can interact with them on desktop and tablet computers or on smartphones.
The 16-gigabyte model of the camera, which is about the same size as a stick of butter and can fit easily in a pocket, costs $499 and can hold 750 pictures. An 8GB version costs $399 and can capture 350 images.
The first reviews of the Lytro came out on Thursday and were full of praise for the technological leap the camera represents.
“The consumer point-and-shoot camera has just been reinvented — not tweaked, or remodeled, but actually re-thought from top to bottom,” said Walt Mossberg in The Wall Street Journal.
“I consider it a revolution in consumer photography,” Mossberg said.
At the same time, the Journal’s influential technology reviewer did point out some of the Lytro’s limitations.
Mossberg noted that for now at least Lytro pictures can only be imported to a Macintosh computer with its accompanying software and the process is slow because of the relatively large files.
The Mountain View, California-based Lytro has promised that a version for computers powered by Microsoft’s Windows operating systems will be available later.
Sam Grobart of The New York Times described the refocusing capabilities of the Lytro as “astonishing” and “fairly mind-blowing.”
“Refocusing a Lytro image, I felt like one of those CIA agents in the movies who is looking at satellite images and asks some technician to ‘enhance’ the picture until Carlos the Jackal comes into focus,” Grobart wrote.
He also highlighted drawbacks with the current model.
“While refocusing is its own interesting tool, that’s the only tool you have at this point — adding a filter or importing the image into Photoshop remains impossible,” Grobart said.
“Should Lytro’s engineers refine light-field photography into something more versatile and cheaper (imagine this on a smartphone), it may turn out to be a game changer,” he said.
The greatest use of this technology is in astronomy for viewing distant galaxies and stars, with great insights in the area of satellite imaging for both civilian and military use, with a slight modification of softwares, it is possible to convert a “Light Field” image to a normal image(eg jpeg) for use with other softwares like photoshop for editing. The video of a “Light Field” image can be recorded by first capturing the first image then processing all the changes of the light image thru a time series control, thus shrinking the data required for storage and playback.

The Raspberry Pi computer to train your child to code

A credit-card sized computer designed to help teach children to code goes on general sale for the first time today.

The Raspberry Pi is a bare-bones, low-cost computer created by volunteers mostly drawn from academia and the UK tech industry.
Sold uncased without keyboard or monitor, the Pi has drawn interest from educators and enthusiasts.
Supporters hope the machines could help reverse a lack of programming skills in the UK.
“It has been six years in the making; the number of things that had to go right for this to happen is enormous. I couldn’t be more pleased,” said Eben Upton of the Raspberry Pi Foundation which is based in Cambridge.

Massive demand for the computer has caused the website of one supplier, Leeds-based Premier Farnell, to crash under the weight of heavy traffic.

School tools
The device’s launch comes as the Department for Education considers changes to the teaching of computing in schools, with the aim of placing greater emphasis on skills like programming.
In a speech outlining those changes, Michael Gove mentioned the Pi, suggesting devices like it could play an important role in the kind of computer class the government envisages.
“Initiatives like the Raspberry Pi scheme will give children the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of programming,” he said.
“This is a great example of the cutting edge of education technology happening right here in the UK.”
Initially the £22 ($35) model of the Pi will be offered for sale. A cheaper £16 ($25) version will go on sale later in the year.
The machine, which runs on open-source operating system Linux, can be hooked up to a typical computer monitor – with additional ports used to attach a keyboard, mouse and other peripherals.
It also features an ethernet port, meaning the device can make use of high-speed internet connectivity.
Supporters hope the thousands-strong community of people that has grown up around the Pi will help develop additional software and suggest uses for the device.
The Pi going on general sale is likely to add to the buzz around the machine, but there are already a number of similar stripped-down computers on the market.
These include devices such as the Beagleboard and the Omnima MiniEMBWiFi.
Bottle-necks banished The Raspberry Pi Foundation says it has already produced thousands of the machines, using a Chinese manufacturer.

“Start Quote

The real task, however, is not about getting the Raspberry Pi out to that impatient crowd of enthusiasts. What matters is the kind of reception the device gets when it arrives in schools”
It had originally hoped to produce the devices in the UK – “we want to help bootstrap the UK electronics industry” the group wrote in a blog post – but that turned out not to be possible at the right price.

But while production remains overseas, deals with two distributors, Premier Farnell and RS Components, mean that production volumes will be able to grow much faster than previously thought.
Rather than the foundation having to fund production, distributors have agreed to handle orders and deal with manufacturers paying the foundation a royalty on sales.
Mr Upton says that will help the project grow much more quickly then previously thought.
“We didn’t realise how successful this was going to be,” he said.
“This means we can scale to volume. Now we can concentrate on teaching people to program.”

‘Twisted’ waves could boost capacity of wi-fi and TV

A striking demonstration of a means to boost the information-carrying capacity of radio waves has taken place across the lagoon in Venice, Italy.

The technique exploits what is called the “orbital angular momentum” of the waves – imparting them with a “twist”.
Varying this twist permits many data streams to fit in the frequency spread currently used for just one.
The approach, described in the New Journal of Physics, could be applied to radio, wi-fi, and television.
The parts of the electromagnetic spectrum that are used for all three are split up in roughly the same way, with a spread of frequencies allotted to each channel. Each one contains a certain, limited amount of information-carrying capacity: its bandwidth.
As telecommunications have proliferated through the years, the spectrum has become incredibly crowded, with little room left for new means of signal transmission, or for existing means to expand their bandwidths.
But Bo Thide of Swedish Institute of Space Physics and a team of colleagues in Italy hope to change that by exploiting an entirely new physical mechanism to fit more capacity onto the same bandwidth.
Galilean connection The key lies in the distinction between the orbital and spin angular momentum of electromagnetic waves.

The orbital angular momentum of light may also manifest itself in what we see from black holes

A perfect analogy is the Earth-Sun system. The Earth spins on its axis, manifesting spin angular momentum; at the same time orbits the Sun, manifesting orbital angular momentum.
The “particles” of light known as photons can carry both types; the spin angular momentum of photons is better known through the idea of polarisation, which some sunglasses and 3-D glasses exploit.
Just as the “signals” for the left and right eye in 3-D glasses can be encoded on light with two different polarisations, extra signals can be set up with different amounts of orbital angular momentum.
Prof Thide and his colleagues have been thinking about the idea for many years; last year, they published an article in Nature Physics showing that spinning black holes could produce such “twisted” light.
But the implications for exploiting the effect closer to home prompted the team to carry out their experiment in Venice, sending a signal 442m from San Giorgio island to the Palazzo Ducale in St Mark’s square.
“It’s exactly the same place that Galileo first demonstrated his telescope to the authorities in Venice, 400 years ago,” Prof Thide told BBC News.
“They were not convinced at all; they could see the moons of Jupiter but they said, ‘They must be inside the telescope, it can’t possibly be like that.’
“To some extent we have felt the same (disbelief from the community), so we said, ‘Let’s do it, let’s demonstrate it for the public.'”
Marconi style In the simplest case, putting a twist on the waves is as easy as putting a twist into the dish that sends the signal. The team split one side of a standard satellite-type dish and separated the two resulting edges.

Helicoidal antenna (Bo Thide)  
The relatively crude antenna could be replaced with more sophisticated signal processing

In this way, different points around the circumference of the beam have a different amount of “head start” relative to other points – if one could freeze and visualise the beam, it would look like a corkscrew.
In a highly publicised event in 2011, the team used a normal antenna and their modified antenna to send waves of 2.4 GHz – a band used by wi-fi – to send two audio signals within the bandwidth normally required by one. They repeated the experiment later with two television signals.
Crowds were treated to projections beamed onto the Palazzo Ducale explaining the experiment, and then a display of the message “signal received” when the experiment worked.
Prof Thide said that the public display – “in the style of (radio pioneer) Guglielmo Marconi… involving ordinary people in the experiment”, as the authors put it – was just putting into practice what he had believed since first publishing the idea in a 2007 Physical Review Letters article.
“For me it was obvious this would work,” he said. “Maxwell’s equations that govern electromagnetic fields are… the most well tested laws of physics that we have.
“We did this because other people wanted us to demonstrate it.”
Prof Thide and his colleagues are already in discussions with industry to develop a system that can transmit many more than two bands of different orbital angular momentum.
The results could radically change just how much information and speed can be squeezed out of the crowded electromagnetic spectrum, applied to radio and television as well as wi-fi and perhaps even mobile phones.
