no Father’s Day or birthday gifts to buy, no running from his home office to the post office daily, no one to sit at the kitchen table with us explaining the marvels of what is “mind boggling” in the field of new energy. It’s hard to imagine how the person to whom I would seek protection from as a child will not be there to protect me anymore. The father who, when I was a child, would poke fun at me because I’d hide under the table during my temper-tantrums shouting, “Don’t look at me!” The person who would play- fully gallop with me around the house and fling me onto the bed. He was so proud of me when I became a teacher like his mother. He would often stare at me across the table, almost in amazement that he and my mom had created such a suc- cessful, independent woman. I’m so deeply saddened that he will not see me continue to grow in my life as a mother.
To the outsider--and in this I am very much the outsider-- the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and numbers is an improbable body. ICANN routinely claims to be either a technical standards body or a technical coordination body, but this claim is wearing quite thin. It has issued no standards. Charged with the task of 'coordinating' the administration of key aspects of the Internet's infrastructure, it acts instead like a regulator. Existing at the heart of the Internet, its key decision making processes rely on face-to-face meetings and make only minimal use of Internet technology. Entrusted with a global mission of interest to all the peoples in the world, it mightily resists efforts to introduce democratic accountability into its power structure, preferring to rely on structures that privilege key "stakeholders" who have managed to engineer and keep, a majority on the ICANN Board.
A n Ohio group of inventors, The Cincinnati Group, first talked about in Infinite Energy Issue #5&6, is now completely confident of its simplified and low energy nuclear transmutation process for converting thorium to a range of lower atomic mass products. Thus, they claim to accomplish within minutes-to-hours what Nature requires tens of billions of years to do—at a cost of mere pennies of electrical energy input. (The half-life of thorium-232 is 14 billion years.) No exotic materials— except zirconium metal electrodes—are required
The 14th International Conference on Condensed Matter Nuclear Science (ICCF-14) will be held from the 10th through the 15th of August 2008 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on Capitol Hill in Washington DC. The purpose of this scientific conference is to present and discuss new results on low energy nuclear reactions (LENR), which originally went by the name "cold fusion." The production of unexpectedly large amounts of excess heat in metals heavily loaded with hydrogen is also called the Fleischmann-Pons Effect.
I nfinite Energy began as a magazine focused on cold fusion, but since the early days has also reported on and promot- ed a broad range of new science and technology. One of the reasons for the broader outlook—aside from exploring the idea of “infinite energy” in as many ways as possible—is that progress was slow (understandably) in taking cold fusion from a controversial theory to a useful technology. When I became a technical editor for IE, I took the posi- tion that the magazine should focus more on basic science than a particular technology because the “new energy” tech- nologies had such a repeating history of always being “about to happen” but never actually happening. This was true of magnetic motors, zero point proposals and other new energy technologies, as well as cold fusion. I have doubts about magnetic motors and most of the zero point energy plans, but have never doubted since 1989 that cold fusion was a real science. I have often doubted, however, that cold fusion would produce useful energy pursuing the science as it has been understood
Afew weeks after “cold fusion” was announced in 1989 (the now verified excess energy and nuclear transformation phenomena is today more appro- priately called LENR, low-energy nuclear reactions), sev- eral people who consider themselves to be environmen- talists, who are presumably concerned with human wel- fare, made very negative remarks about the claimed dis- covery of Fleischmann and Pons1:
R arely acknowledged in the debate on global climate change, the world’s weather can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated electromagnetic weapons. Both the US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use. Environmental modification techniques have been applied by the US military for more than half a century. US mathematician John von Neumann, in liaison with the US Department of Defense, started his research on weather modification in the late 1940s at the height of the Cold War and foresaw ‘forms of climatic warfare as yet unimagined
I t has been over twenty years now since Pons and Fleischmann claimed to have observed evidence of nuclear reactions occurring at low energies in a tabletop experiment, reporting an output of excess heat that could not easily be explained as the result of any chemical process- es.1 If such a finding could be confirmed it would hold enor- mous promise for future technologies, possibly providing a clean and safe solution for the world’s energy needs. But soon after the announcement by Pons and Fleischmann, other researchers failed to reproduce their results, and the majority of scientists came to consider “cold fusion” dead
Dr. Mallove was the founder and Editor-in-Chief of the bi-monthly magazine Infinite Energy, from its start in 1995 until his death on May 14, 2004. Infinite Energy covers advances in the field of cold fusion and new energy technology and has broad-based coverage of new science and new physics. Dr. Mallove was President of Cold Fusion Technology, the parent company of Infinite Energy, from 1995 to 2002; he also served as Director of its New Energy Research Laboratory from 1997 until its closing in 2003. In late 2002, Dr. Mallove reverted the business to a non-profit, renamed the New Energy Foundation; in addition to publishing the magazine, the Foundation awards grants to researchers in the new energy field
My experience at Infinite Energy has been unique and invigorating, which began the very day I met Gene Mallove for the first time, at my job interview. I had already inter- viewed with then-Managing Editor Barbara DelloRusso and taken home copies of the magazine and Gene’s book, Fire from Ice, for reference. I expected it to be the most nerve- wracking interview of my life—I dislike interviewing to begin with, but this was the first time I would sit down with a Ph.D. (and published author) who would decide whether to hire me. It is a testament to Gene’s character—his caring way, genuineness, and interest in all people—that the inter- view was the best one I’ve ever had. What began as nerv- ousness quickly turned into ease and comfort as we spent over two hours discussing our love of books and movies, compared our New England upbringings, talked about the health of our parents, etc. We covered topics from popular culture to politics, and of course I got a tutorial about cold fusion. When it was over, I was not only confident, but hopeful, that I would be offered a job. Two weeks later, I began work with Infinite Energy and have since found more professional satisfaction than I have experienced anywhere else; I owe much of that to Gene
tury that ions move independently of each other at high dilu- tions (Kohlrausch). Moreover, the dominant motion of the ions is attributed to Brownian movements (Einstein) so that the ions must accelerate and decelerate, Figure 2. The con- comitant radiation (Maxwell) should therefore cool the elec- trolyte solutions to absolute zero at which point the Debye- H�ckel Theory would become valid. We therefore need to ask ourselves: why do the solutions not cool spontaneously? The answer is that the electrostatic model, when combined with Brownian motion, violates the Second Law of Thermodynam- ics (see Appendix A). In point of fact, the motion of the ions must be rigorously quantized and the correct theoretical framework is Q.E.D
John Humphrys (JH): Imagine a world in which limitless ener- gy could be created from a few buckets of water—so cheap they wouldn't even bother to meter it. We would solve the crisis of global pollution at a stroke, no more need to pump carbon dioxide into our battered atmosphere. We might even end global hunger. The waters of the ocean could be desalinated in vast quantities and pumped wherever it was needed to turn deserts into green fields. Oh, Brave New World indeed.
On May 14 I woke up and spent most of the day finishing a take home exam for my Multi-Agent Systems class. I worked most of the day with a couple of guitar breaks. My wife was out with friends for most of the day since I had work to do. I was probably sitting in front of the computer answering a question about Partial Global Planning when 110 miles away my father was being brutally beaten to death apparently over a few hundred dollars worth of his posses- sions and a tired old 1993 Dodge Caravan. I went to bed and slept fine that night, while at 11:00 p.m. he was being pro- nounced dead by medical examiners. Ethan
Abstract. To a lawyer, two issues stand out as critical impediments to the widespread acceptance of digital signatures in electronic commerce: the unresolved nature of liability issues and the looming uncertainty about the nature of the public key infrastructure. These issues are so closely related as to be almost intertwined.
Abstract: This report illustrates the design of a novel user interface feature to provide simple and rapid navigation and user customization of the contents of a complex, multipart document. Within a performance- support application for classroom teachers, the objective was to provide an efficient and instantly learnable scheme for direct user control over the parts to be included in the document as well as quick access to any part of the document. The design relies on the techniques of instructive interaction, an innovative approach for making user interfaces self- teaching even when they incorporate novel or non-standard features
