Earthbag Building Index Early Childhood Education and Quality Child Care in North Texas | Educational First Steps Earthbag House Plans - Small, Affordable, Sustainable DEKA R&D Partnership Supplies Clean Drinking Water As part of Coca‑Cola’s commitment to replenish 100 percent of the water we use in our drinks and operations by 2020, we’re working with DEKA Research & Development to take an amazing piece of cutting-edge water purifying technology into communities in need. DEKA’s ‘Slingshot’ is a portable, low-energy machine that can purify water in any form. One Slingshot unit can purify up to 300,000 litres of water per year – enough daily drinking water for roughly 300 people. Slingshot runs on electricity, but only needs one kilowatt of power to do an hour’s work – less than the amount of energy required to run a standard hairdryer. It can be plugged into the local grid or powered by solar cells, batteries or DEKA’s Stirling electric generator (which runs on biogas that can be obtained from local waste sources). Introducing EKOCENTER™ By 2015, we will place between 1,500 and 2,000 EKOCENTERs or Slingshot water purification systems in Africa, Asia, Latin America and North America.
Natural Building Blog Planning Because it encompasses activity over several years, a strategic plan will need to be tweaked over the course of time as there are assumptions made in creating the plan that ultimately will not come to fruition. A strategic plan should cover three to five years or so and should contain the following elements: Your mission statement. It is the reason you started a nonprofit organization and describes what you do. While a long-term or strategic plan is important, it must be segmented into specific, achievable pieces that can be measured for effectiveness and cost. An Annual Plan Why a one-year plan? Many strategic plans ultimately are shelved because an organization fails to adequately assign responsibility or hold staff accountable for the accomplishment of smaller actions through an annual plan. Planning should be an inclusive process seeking input from all who are involved internally and externally with the nonprofit organization.
Inicio - Superadobe Cal-Earth Low Cost Solar Cell Breakthrough With Copper Doped CdTe Thin Film Clean Power Published on August 16th, 2013 | by Tina Casey What a difference 34 years can make. When the Carter Administration installed solar panels at the White House back in 1979, photovoltaic cells were space age technology that most households could not afford, aside from the rare DIY-er. Now the price of solar power has been sinking like a stone, thanks partly to the introduction of low cost materials and inexpensive thin film fabrication methods. Low Cost Materials For High Efficiency Solar Cells The new Empa solar cell boasts an efficiency of 11.5 percent, which might not sound like a big deal compared to last year’s announcement of a 44 percent efficiency mark by the company Solar Junction, but we’re talking about two distinctive technologies. Low cost solar cell (cropped) courtesy of Empa. They started with CdTe, which is already the least expensive of its kind in terms of production methods, and they focused on one obstacle to lowering the cost even farther. About the Author
Earth house | Natural Building Nickola Tesla’s Scalar Waves - what are Scalar Waves? Over a hundred years ago Nikola Tesla called the powerful non-Hertzian energy (without frequencies) Scalar. A new era in Science was born. In the 1920’s Einstein referenced to these scalar energies and yet nearly a hundred years later there application is still undervalued and underused. Scalar waves also referred to as Tesla Waves or Longitudinal Waves are capable of penetrating any solid object including Faraday Cages. A transmitter can be placed in a box of thick metal and a receiver outside of the box will still receive the scalar wave. Scalar waves are capable of passing through the earth from one side to another with no loss of field strength as Tesla showed in one of his experiments. Traveling faster than the speed of light (superluminal), Scalar Waves are not electromagnetic but composed of pure zero point energy. So Scalar Waves can be used for communication, energy, and other applications.
Tiny Earthbag Homes = Low Cost To Build And Own Earthbag homes can take on many different sizes and shapes such as straight walls or curved. The roof can also be made of earthbag but only for smaller structures. Green roofs and timber roofs are also often used. Here is an in-depth step by step on how to build yourself an earthbag home. It’s possible that an earthbag home could be used for folks interested in living small. Once you own land in a no codes / no restrictions area, you have some flexibility to do such a neat build. Quantum Scalar Energy Pendant How to Build Dirt Cheap Houses The following list summarizes some of the potential savings from using natural building materials and alternative construction methods. If you’re wondering why they’re not more widely used, it’s because contractors, banks, realtors and others in the housing industry make more profit from the current system. It’s up to you to get informed and switch to a sustainable lifestyle. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
Article - Viktor Schauberger - Water Ways of Life Water Ways of Life Viktor Schauberger Due to the number of unsung geniuses seeking to innovate our lives and the life or our planet, we have continued the creative genius section of the LightNet News to shed light on the possibilities we have open to us if we only knew of the knowledge and achievements available to us. Schauberger was born on 30th June 1885 in Austria into a family who had been foresters for over 400 years and who had originated from a German Aristocratic land owning family dating back to 1230 AD at which time they had lost their lands in Germany. Using his knowledge Viktor waited for the time when the water current would be at its strongest, which was during the early hours of the morning when the moon was full. After World War l Viktor was employed by Prince Adolf Schauberg-Lippe who gave him responsibility for over 21,000 hectares of almost virgin forest land in Bernerau, Steyerling.
