A new study finds in an increase in lightning strikes after large solar winds. The findings suggest that particles from the sun may interact with the atmosphere to make lightning more likely.

This Car Runs For 100 Years Without Refuelling – The Thorium Car, Video http://b4in.org/s2Gv

If your car was powered by thorium, you would never need to refuel it. The vehicle would burn out long before the chemical did. The thorium would last so long, in fact, it would probably outlive you.

That’s why a company called Laser Power Systems has created a concept for a thorium-powered car engine. The element is radioactive, and the team uses bits of it to build a laserbeam that heats water, produces steam, and powers an energy-producing turbine.

Thorium is one of the most dense materials on the planet. A small sample of it packs 20 million times more energy than a similarly-sized sample of coal, making it an ideal energy source.

The thing is, Dr. Charles Stevens, the CEO of Laser Power Systems, told Mashable that thorium engines won’t be in cars anytime soon.
“Cars are not our primary interest,” Stevens said. ”The automakers don’t want to buy them.”

He said too much of the automobile industry is focused on making money off of gas engines, and it will take at least a couple decades for thorium technology to be used enough in other industries that vehicle manufacturers will begin to consider revamping the way they think about engines. We’re building this to power the rest of the world,” Stevens said.

He believes a thorium turbine about the size of an air conditioning unit could more provide cheap power for whole restaurants, hotels, office buildings, even small towns in areas of the world without electricity. At some point, thorium could power individual homes.

Stevens understands that people may be wary of Thorium because it is radioactive — but any such worry would be unfounded.

More reason for need of public scanning network.
 
Since 2001, 26 atomic-bomb-scale explosions have occurred in remote locations around the world, far from populated areas. This Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22, three former NASA astronauts will present new evidence that our planet has experienced many more large-scale asteroid impacts over the past decade than previously thought… three to ten times more, This, according to a new visualization of data from a nuclear weapons warning network

I wrote about this in EARTH (1980).  Defense folks have long worried about such things triggering a war.

What a bunch of crap.  It is because of ignorance like this article that these ISPs think they can get away with double dipping.  Please go back to the herd Mr. Fagioli.
Money doesn't grow on trees and neither does bandwidth. For internet providers, there is a cost for providing the service. For the most part, with broadband connections such as cable, bandwidth is shared between users. And so, if too many users abuse the service -- torrents, ftp servers, media streaming -- it can slow things down for others.

How despicable. I think JW could walk into a Bank in Tallahassee and rob it at gunpoint and walk away with no charges.  Tallahassee should be ashamed.  FSU is crooked is a crap to let him continue playing on their team.

That's a big difference in 25 years.
 
25 years later, nothing compares to the excitement of playing Tetris on a Nintendo Game Boy:

That is freaking cool.  Our country needs to be funding stuff like this.
Store the UV energy in sunlight, release it as heat when needed.

Very clean and comfortable. I would give it more stars except the so called free Internet sucks. It works great until guests start arriving and then it starts dropping out because the hotel doesn't have enough bandwidth to handle all of the guests. Then you have to deal with their IT contractor because the folks at the hotel don't know how to fix it. If management reads this, I would suggest you increase your Internet bandwidth so that it is fatty enough for all guests to enjoy your 'free Internet'.
