Krivit believes Rossi is a Fraud but believes there is legitimate underlying science and Sterling D. Allan with Hank Mills rebut the fraud assertion

1. Steven Krivit at New Energy Times has written another two articles where he asserts that Rossi and his energy catalyzer are a fraud. Energy Catalzyer: Extraordinary Scams Require Extraordinary Claims I [Steven Krivit] don’t doubt the legitimacy of the underlying science — apparently copied from biophysicist Francesco Piantelli — which has been published in …

Cornell Study shows Blood Vessels Support Lung Regeneration

Researchers at Weill Cornell Medical College say they have taken an important step forward in their quest to “turn on” lung regeneration — an advance that could effectively treat millions of people suffering from respiratory disorders. The research team reports that they have uncovered the biochemical signals in mice that trigger generation of new lung …

Femtotech: computing at the femtometer scale using quarks and gluons from Hugo de Garis

Kurzweilai – How the properties of quarks and gluons can be used (in principle) to perform computation at the femtometer (10^-15 meter) scale. An atom is about 10^-10 m in size. The next smallest thing in nature is the nucleus, which is about 100,000 times smaller, i.e., 10^-15 m in size — a femtometer, or …

First step toward a general method of creating artificial self-replicating materials of arbitrary structure and composition starting with Structural DNA seeds and tiles

New York University scientists have developed artificial structures that can self-replicate, a process that has the potential to yield new types of materials. (H/T Foresight Institute) The discovery in Nature reports the first steps toward a general process for self-replication of a wide variety of arbitrarily designed seeds. The seeds are made from DNA tile …
