Incredibly interesting.  I'm thinking it totally logical for new laws to:
1. Required disclosure and black box warning for any product or drug with ANY Mercury in it.
2. amend FDA 2008 guidance on conflict-of-interest issues for advisory committees and deem any previous paid speaking or consulting arrangement on behalf of a drug maker at such a meeting as a “disqualifying financial interest” for determining eligibility

I've been into stumbleupon for a few months now, and I really enjoy it. I had looked into it once before a few years ago but dropped it.  I love it so much now I'm kicking myself for not getting more into before.  I like this article and plan on utilizing it for my own posts, once I start using stumbleupon to promote either http://garysinard.com or slideshare content I produce (from one of my articles) or an infographic I make (from one of my articles).

Back to Cincinnati OH after a week of visiting Louisville, KY and bopping around between Mufreesboro TN, Mount Juliet TN, and Franklin TN.  About to leave for Lansing Michigan.  Looking forward to seeing the new Star Wars movie.

Just heard a funny story.  A large land owner told of how farms surrounding him held a certain type of goats called "Fainting Goats".  There was building and development going on next door, and the engineers were setting off dynamite blasts.  Every time a blast would hit, the whole lot of goats would simultaneously drop to the ground and play dead. Apparently it is an automatic defense mechanism found in that particular breed.   I looked up Fainting Goats on YouTube and found this video.

There are some very exciting advancements in batteries coming in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Below are a few:

Nano 'yolk' triple capacity and charge in six minutes

Scientists at MIT have created a battery that triples the capacity of current offerings and can charge to full in just 6-minutes. It also does not degrade rapidly over time meaning it should last a long time.

The icing on the cake here is that production in inexpensive and easy to scale, so we could see the batteries appear soon.


Alfa battery lasts 14 days and runs on water

A breakthrough in aluminium-air batteries means that in 2015 we will see the release of the Alfa battery that has 40 times the capacity of lithium-ion. This battery will be able to recharge by simply being topped up with water, be it salty or normal. It should last a hefty 14 days, according to its creators Fuji Pigment and will be out later this year.

We'd expect to see these batteries appear in cars first - imagine a fueling station being anywhere with a water tap. Hopefully mobiles will be next in line.



Aluminium-air battery gives 1,100 mile drive on a charge

A car has been tested that managed to drive 1,100 miles on a charge. The secret to this super range is a type of battery technology called aluminium-air. This uses oxygen naturally occurring in the air to fill its cathode. This makes it far lighter than liquid filled lithium-ion batteries to give car a far greater range.

Aluminium-air batteries drain turning the metal into aluminium hydroxide which can then be recycled to make new batteries. That will mean swapping out batteries every few months. But since it's so much lighter and cheaper than current efforts it should offer huge mileage and be affordable.
With the car industry throwing money at battery developments it might not be long before we see this tech under our bonnets.

Urine powered batteries
The Bill Gates Foundation is funding further research by Bristol Robotic Laboratory who discovered batteries that can be powered by urine. It’s efficient enough to charge a smartphone which the scientists have already shown off. But how does it work?

Using a Microbial Fuel Cell micro-organisms take the urine, break it down and output electricity - to put it simply. On a scale large enough to charge a smartphone there are several cells into which the urine is passed via tubes. The unit creates electricity and also expels a broken down version of the waste making it safer to dispose of.
With Bill Gates working on re-inventing the toilet we're expecting the porcelain throne to become a source of power in the home soon.

This is incredible.  Straight out of minority report and other futuristic movies - the future exists now.
