MIT Creates New Energy Source This is some pretty exciting news. It seems that researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), one of the most prestigious science and engineering schools in the United States, has created a new energy source -- and it's clean and renewable. The odd thing is that the only way you can see this energy source is with a very powerful microscope, because it is created by using nanotechnology. For a few years now, we have been hearing about the possibilities offered by the new field of nanotechnology. The researchers built tiny wires out of carbon nanotubes. The nanotechnology batteries will have a couple of other advantages over current batteries. Second, these batteries are non-toxic since they are made of carbon. Computers, cell phones and other electronic devices will be the first to benefit from the nanotechnology batteries. (The picture above is an artist's rendition of a carbon nanotube.)

Flinstone's CAR 17 Apart: How To: DIY Stump Table You guys, we made a table from a slice of tree stump, no joke! We mentioned tackling a DIY project we were pretty excited about weekend before last — well we finally got it finished and this is it. Here's the whole (very long) story of how this all came about and step by step instructions of exactly how it went down in the event you want to tackle making one of your own! We started out with a stump — obviously. It just sat there day after day and about 2 weeks after she began seeing it she started telling me each evening how she wanted me to go get it so we could make something out of it. The stump was heavy as all get out but I was able to get it in the front seat of the car safely, buckle her in and bring her back home (please don't ask me why my shorts are riding up so high in this photo, maybe the most embarrassing shot of me on the blog to date): Weekend before last, after a week or more sealed off in our garage, we brought the stump out in the alley to start working on it.
Nicholas Sparks Nicholas Sparks stated that he has no contemporaries. No one else does what he does. He writes unpredictable love stories, not trashy run-of-the-mill romance novels like Shakespeare.&&(navigator.user Just The Facts Nicholas Sparks is an author who churns out about one romance novel a year. Nicholas Sparks on Nicholas Sparks In a recent interview with USA Today, Nicholas Sparks criticized Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Ernest Hemingway, and romance novelists in general for essentially writing the same story over and over: "(Romances) are all essentially the same story: You've got a woman, she's down on her luck, she meets the handsome stranger who falls desperately in love with her, but he's got these quirks, she must change him, and they have their conflicts, and then they end up happily ever after." But he claims that he is not a romance novelist. "You read a romance because you know what to expect. Really Nicholas Sparks? Nicholas Sparks Movies A Walk to Remember Then tragedy strikes. Dear John

Mi chiedi se sono disposto a mettermi in gioco e condividere le info ? Questa e la bob, finita, si vede già inserito il supporto delle bobine che dovrò realizzare è quello arancione e nero, le bobine avranno ogni singolo strato separato da carta isolante ed assorbente e successivamente saranno inserite in un contenitore di vetro contenete olio isolante per alte tensioni. ok, per ora mi devo fermare, il lavoro mi chiama. Buona giornata. emc2
