Bunker Roy decided to give up his life of privilege and wealth to help some of India’s poorest communities.
His experience digging wells in rural villages gave him the idea to establish a training college to help communities use technology to become self-sufficient.
The Barefoot College has given thousands of rural men and women the skills and knowledge to make significant changes to their lives such as installing new methods of water collection or generating solar power.
A huge advancement in the reactionless thrusters was made possible by Dr. Athanassios Nassikas. It require no electrical power – just a superconducting coil and a permanent magnet. The thrust to weight ratio is 9 times greater than a shuttle engine. It is estimated that a unit that weighs about 11 pounds can lift about 150 pounds!

Wayne Lording adressed the CLIMATE TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH GROUP explaining the many variables that need to be considered in order to make the appropriate choices when installing a Solar Power Station on the roof.
Indeed there is much to consider from the many types of panels, inverters, batteries etc. The new and exciting compliment to this is GEOTHERMAL ENERGY and how that can be used to heat or cool the home using the earth as the heat sink. A simple trench is all that is needed and not to be confused with the idea of drilling a hole to the centre of the earth to get the heat to generate Steam as with the large Commercial geothermal generators…Indeed wayne is on the cutting edge when it come to a ‘Total Concept’ in harnessing the best of both systems and also other factors like using the grey water and sewerage waste as a totally integrated package.
The hydrogen car has taken one step closer to becoming a reality in Australia, with Toyota announcing plans to import a single example of its new Mirai electric car.
While Toyota will not sell the car to the public, the groundbreaking machine will be at the core of a campaign intended to raise awareness surrounding what hydrogen cars can offer.
On sale already in Japan, Europe and the US, the fuel-cell powered Mirai transforms hydrogen into electricity and water, giving it an emissions-free range of around 550 kilometres.
Toyota will exhibit the car at Sydney’s World Hydrogen Technologies Convention in October before using it in a road show intended to win over government authorities, the public and press in Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney.
Toyota Australia president Dave Buttner says that although the Mirai offers cutting-edge technology, it is too early to sell hydrogen cars in Australia.
They say bad things come in threes, so this might not be the last word, but for the second time in just a few days, we’ve gotten wind of an overlooked startup company that aims to give the much-publicized Tesla battery a run for the money. This time it’s the “stealth” company 24M Technologies, which just yesterday announced a new lithium-ion battery that it’s calling a semisolid lithium-ion cell.
