You are one? You are alone? You are by yourself? - The scenic route back to Kathmandu with my imaginary friends.... Advertisement "Yes, yes, yes I know, I'm a billy no mates and have no friends", is what I felt like saying after the 6th person in two hours spoke or gestured, combined usually with a look of concern or confusion, to ask whether I was on my own. I was beginning to get the feeling that in everyday Nepal, ie. outside of the tourist bubble I'd been living in, perhaps women didn't travel on their own.... I was staying in Bandipur, some three hours from Pokhara, having decided to take the scenic route back to Kathmandu. I'd finished my Annapurna trek with a day being shaken around (as much as is possible when there are four squished into a row) in the back of various jeeps as we travelled a road that was in parts more rock and less road.

The Beginner’s Guide to Putting the Internet to Work for You: How to Easily Save 60 Minutes Every Day One of the most fun and useful things I’ve been doing lately is automating small processes I do all the time. It took me a while to work up the courage to dive into automation, as it always seemed like a really difficult, technical thing to do, which should be left to programmers. Luckily, there are lots of tools being created lately to make automation much easier for those of us without a solid understanding of how our computers really work. How To Turn Toilet Flushes Into Energy For Your Home [Video Researchers at Seoul National University and Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI) have developed a way to harness the energy from moving water, including that of flushing water in a toilet. The research team led by Youn Sang Kim has adapted a transducer to harvest the mechanical energy from flowing water. The energy is then converted to electrical energy which can be used to power up devices and appliances. The scientists were able to demonstrate that a single drop of water can generate enough electricity to power an LED bulb for a brief moment.

The energy is then converted to electrical energy which can be used to power up devices and appliances. The scientists were able to demonstrate that a single drop of water can generate enough electricity to power an LED bulb for a brief moment. The study could lead to a sustainable system that would allow people to generate power in their homes from things that they don’t even think much about like flushing water in toilets or water running from the sink and in rain gutters. A paper detailing the research is available on the Energy & Environmental Science journal.
Deep Sea Rocks Could Be The Secret To Powering Our Mobile Devices If you’ve ever left the house without your phone, you have an idea of how dependent we have become on these devices. What you may not know is that the screen, circuitry, and speakers of your phone are made out of Yttrium, Praseodymium, and Dysprosium– rare earth metals that are becoming scarce, while mobile phones and tablets becomes more in-demand. Fortunately, geochemists in Germany may have discovered an alternative- deep sea rocks. Lumps of iron and magnesium, called ferromanganese nodules, are all over the ocean floor. They build up slowly over time as iron and magnesium becomes dissolved in sea water debris.
