Topic Of the Month

Generally, one would associate a concept, an idea or innovation with a new gadget or mechanical tool. We stress that concepts can be also in the realm of pure mathematics, pure arts.. even travel tips and have especially precious value when they are geared towards social change for the better or eradication of hunger, curbing of wastage or reduction in use of resources. For example: concepts towards changing the mindset of peoples re their inherent distrust / fear / even hatred of people 'no more

Steaming or Warming Sieve-Posted By:Th D
Regularly use a pre-fabricated stainless steel sieve in a pan to steam or warm other food items.

The resistance of the sieve and food items helps increase the heat applied to the food being cooked while resulting in minimum loss of heat energy to the atmosphere.

Items in the strainer may be covered in cling film to prevent moistening of the surface (if required). more

'Pipe' sunlight half-way across the globe ..-Posted By:J.D.
How much would it cost to 'pipe' sunlight half-way across the globe? E <- > W or even N < - > S ?

As in the image across continents or say from the far South to the far North of Norway ?

Harnessed concentrated sunlight enters the optic fibre train and at the other end distributed to, farmland clusters.

Far-fetched? or ahead of the times?

What do you think?

For sake of clarity parts shown are minimal. 'A' - is the gas stove ring burner.

Around the burner is a copper piping at a diameter such that it just touches the outer edge of the full flame.
The piping has an inlet port and an outlet port. The inlet port is fed via a throttle valve from the cold water supply.
The outlet port leads to hot water storage tank situated above the height of the cooking apparatus.

You can get water at about 70 degrees Celcius For 'FREE'.

This is certainly n... more

Wind Chute in a tunnel-Posted By:J.D.
Concept is to utilise trapped air in tunnel that has to be circulated to do so via a wind chute. The resistance ahead of the train should reduce because of the wind chute and the pressure behind the train should increase.

Circulation should be achieved. A measurable increase in speed should be achieved.

But would it be worth the cost? What do you think? What would be needed to 'fine tune' this concept? more

USA Soon To Be An Exporter Of Oil-Posted By:J.D.

USA Soon To Be An Exporter Of Oil-Posted By:J.D.
In about three years from now (By mid-2016), USA will be a major exporter of crude oil.

The natural inference would be that the USA has discovered new major sources of crude oil. Not true, rather this is because of the rapid deployment of alternative energy sources(renewables) in the American continent.

Improvement in Wind and Solar energy farms in conjunction with storage and feedback to grid technologies. The improvements have come due to sustained support by way of subsidies and pr... more
