"We haven’t come to grips with what is ethical, let alone with what the laws should be, in relation to technologies such as social media." — Vivek Wadhwa
Codes we live by, laws we follow, and computers that move too fast to care.

Having lawmakers who are in touch with technology would at least be a step in the right direction.

Singularity University (SU) is one such organization, and Rob Nail (CEO of SU), Emeline Paat Dahlstrom (the Chief Impact Officer at SU), and David J. Hill (Director and Editor-in-Chief of Singularity Hub) are in the comments to discuss wh...

Steam boiler of the generating electricity!

If instead tube coil steam boilers for heating of individual buildings and private homes, to build the water engine to my design, at the insignificant rise in price, the owner of the premises will receive and heat and independent source of power.
The unit will operate as follows - in boiler furnace installed steam compressors of a high pressure, they have a cylindrical form with tubes inside. After heating in them, a vapor pressure of 500 and above atmospheres, he served in the piston chamber and with the help of pistons rotate the crankshaft. On the shaft is installed powerful generator, which generates an electric current. The efficiency of the plant will amount to not less than 90%. And the heating system of the premises becomes technologically - forced cooling of steam.
 The owner of this installation implements most of the electricity in the common network and revenue covers the acquisition costs of the unit itself, its fuel and creates a reserve of energy for the summer period, when the boiler will not work, or accumulates revenues from sale of electricity for own needs. If such units to be installed on the metallurgical enterprises, and use the heat of melting furnaces for their work, we obtain the additional electrical energy will pay part of the costs of steel production and will do these enterprises competitive in the market price per ton of produced steel. 
All technologies used in my invention is well known and very effective and very cheap as all ingenious, but engineering today does not see obvious things!
Ask to apply this technology on your enterprises and divide the obtained profit is true. Ready for cooperation.
