Scientists Use Super-Strong Bacteria to Produce 24K Gold

This process, known as microbial alchemy, will help scientists turn a substance of no value into a solid, precious metal. The team was led by Kazem Kashefi, assistant professor of microbiology and molecular genetics. Working along with Adam Brown, associate professor of electronic art and intermedia, the team discovered that the metal-tolerant bacteria Cupriavidus metallidurans can grow on massive concentrations of gold chloride – or liquid gold, a toxic chemical compound found in nature. According to the research team, the bacteria is at least 25 times stronger than previously reported.

Earlier this week, during a disappointing Tesla earnings call, Elon Musk mentioned in passing that he’d be producing a stationary battery for powering the home in the next few months.

Why Tesla's battery for your home should terrify utilities

It sounded like a throwaway side project from someone who’s never seen a side project he doesn’t like. But it’s a very smart move, and one that’s more central to Musk’s ambitions than it might seem. To understand why, it helps to look not at Tesla, but at SolarCity, a company chaired by Musk and run by his cousin Lyndon Rive. SolarCity installs panels on people’s roofs, leases them for less than they’d be paying in energy bills, and sells surplus energy back to the local utility. GLOBAL MONEY LINE.

February 27, 2015 A federal court has again renewed an order allowing the National Security Agency to continue its bulk collection of Americans' phone records, a decision that comes more than a year after President Obama pledged to end the controversial program.

NSA Spying Wins Another Rubber Stamp

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court approved this week a government request to keep the NSA's mass surveillance of U.S. phone metadata operating until June 1, coinciding with when the legal authority for the program is set to expire in Congress. The extension is the fifth of its kind since Obama said he would effectively end the Snowden-exposed program as it currently exists during a major policy speech in January 2014.

Obama and senior administration officials have repeatedly insisted that they will not act alone to end the program without Congress. More than a year's worth of efforts to reform the NSA stalled last year, as the Senate came two votes short of advancing the USA Freedom Act in November. 10 Modern Methods of Mind Control.

What’s the Real Cause of Heart Attacks?

Cowan, MD In a previous article in this journal ("What Causes Heart Attacks," Fall 2007), I presented the case that the spectrum of heart disease, which includes angina, unstable angina, and myocardial infarction (heart attack), is better understood from the perspective of events happening in the myocardium (heart) as opposed to events happening in the coronary arteries (the arteries that supply the heart).As we all know, the conventional view holds that the central event of heart disease occurs in the arteries, with the buildup of blockage called plaque.In this follow-up article I will go into more detail about the conventional theory and why it is largely misleading; then I will describe the precise and well documented events that do lead to MIs (myocardial infarctions or heart attacks).

By PAUL FASSA “Sprouted” garlic — old garlic bulbs with bright green shoots sprouting from their cloves —is commonly thought to be past its prime and routinely gets tossed into the garbage bin without a second thought.

Healthy News and Information

While some old sprouted foods can actually be dangerous because they release toxic chemicals which can harm the body, that’s not the case with sprouted garlic – on the contrary. In fact, a study funded by Korea’s Institute of Planning and Evaluation for Technology, which was recently published in the ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that sprouted garlic has even more antioxidant activity than its younger, fresher brethren.

Pedal-powered Raht Racer cycle can travel as fast as a car

This hybrid vehicle amplifies pedal power to enable cyclists to travel at car speeds while still getting a workout, and it has a roof to keep you dry in wet weather. The Raht Racer’s hybrid flywheel generator multiplies the pedal power of the driver so that the vehicle can hit a top speed of 100 miles per hour!

The three-wheeled Raht Racer features a composite body with room for everything the daily commuter needs, such as a laptop, a bag and lunch. It also prioritizes safety with a roll cage, air bags and seat belts. There is even a second seat for a passenger, so you can ride share to reduce your carbon footprint even further. The Raht Racer is the perfect vehicle for people who want to bike to work but who live too far away from the office. If Only GMO Farmers Would Adopt This Man’s Plan for Going Organic (And Boosting Profits Too)

The explosion of organic food sales has left many people with one important question: where exactly is all this new food coming from, anyway? Short of deceiving customers, it seems that GMO farmers are going to have a lot of extra product laying around in the coming years if consumers continue to shun their crops. [Read: How the UN Says Organic Farming Can Feed the World] A lot of companies are in fact sourcing organic ingredients from overseas, but eventually, more U.S. farmers are going to be forced to make the switch. So, how can GMO farmers do that while still maintaining a high level of profitability? Permaculture expert Nicholas Burtner of the YouTube channel School of Permaculture (check them out here) presents his plan for how GMO farmers can make the change in the video below (and how local people can help, too), please watch and share!

Use These 5 Steps to Create a Marketing Plan. VOLKSWAGEN’S NEW 300 MPG CAR NOT ALLOWED IN AMERICA BECAUSE IT IS TOO EFFICIENT. You won’t find the 300 MPG Volkswagen XL1 in an American showroom, in fact it has even been denied a tour of America because it is too efficient for the American public to be made widely aware of, and oil profits are too high in America with the status quo in place.

No tour has been allowed for this car because the myth that 50 mpg is virtually impossible to obtain from even a stripped down econobox is too profitable to let go of, and when it comes to corporate oil profits, ignorance is bliss. Years ago I had calculated that it should be possible to get a small car to exceed 100 mpg by putting parallel direct to cylinder water injectors side by side with the fuel injectors, and using the exhaust manifold to preheat the water so it would enter the cylinders as dry steam, thus providing added expansion (which drives the engine) while allowing the combustion process to proceed without reducing it’s efficiency. What does that kind of fuel economy really mean? The answer is obvious.
