      • Stunning Third Party E-Cat Test Report Details Leaked During NIWeek - An apparent inside source, going by the username "Cures", has leaked significant information about a test of the new ultra high temperature E-Cat. He has also posted a photograph of the module that was tested. Does his leak trump every presentation made at NIWeek? (PESN; August 11, 2012)
        • Rossi: Now Able to Use Gas, Not Electricity to Drive E-Cat - Andrea Rossi has just announced what would seem to be an important breakthrough in the development of the E-Cat. In a comment on the Journal of Nuclear Physics today, Rossi said: We are very close to a 1 MW plant with high temperature steam and electric power generation. Another important achievement , we got today: we are able, now,... (E-CatWorld; August 10, 2012) (And ecatreport)
        • Leaked Test Data Indicates Hot Ecat operating at 1200 degrees Celsius - What is supposed to be leaked data from a July 16 test of Andrea Rossi's ecat low energy nuclear reaction (LENR) device seems to verify Rossi's claims that his device can now generate temperatures up to 1200 degrees Celsius. The tests were apparently conducted by nine professors (EnergyCatalyzer3; August 12, 2012)
        • "The Radiations are Turned Into Heat" - Like many people, I have been examining picture of the Hot Cat leaked out of the Leonardo labs by Mr. Cures and of course notice that there is an opening through which we can see the almost white-hot interior of the reactor can be seen. One may naturally wonder, if there is a nuclear... (E-CatWorld; August 12, 2012)
        • The Cures Effect — Will it Help or Hinder the E-Cat Cause? [Updated: Cures Identified] - Andrea Rossi has now acknowledged that the information leaked by 'Cures' is authentic, and that this person is indeed an insider.

          • University of Bologna E-Cat Test - Disinclined to repeat hearsay without substantiation, I pause before posting the following from Andrea Rossi's blog. In it, he tells us that the 'leaking' of the so-called hot-cat details by the person known as, 'cures' violated an NDA. However, in saying this he is giving credence to…
          • Rossi Statement on 'Cures' - As a way to summarize the mysterious Cures affair, I am including here a statement from Andrea Rossi in which he provides detailed information about the previously mysterious leaker. Note that Rossi says that in addition to Fioravanti, six professors from two universities were involved in the July 16 testing. The first statement about... (E-CatWorld; August 12, 2012)
          • Secrecy, Leaks And The Hot-Cat - The cold fusion and LENR world has been in turmoil lately because of some information leaked about Andrea Rossi's Hot Cat. Rossi has repeatedly rebuffed any efforts of people to get information –… (ECatReport; August 15, 2012)
      • Rossi says Publication Release Day is September 10th . . . or 8th - For some time Andrea Rossi has been talking about the release of a report providing data about his high temperature E-Cat reactors and which will include validation from third parties.

Along with their presentation, DGT released a paper on... (E-CatWorld; August 14, 2012) (And
      • "After seeing the DGT presentation, speaking with them and speaking with people who have been onsite to see the hyperion in Greece, my take is that they are farther away from having a commercial ready device than we had hoped. Based on what people are telling me here with first hand knowledge, as recently as 3 weeks ago they were still unable to obtain stable demos of their technology (problems with the spark plugs failing), thus I suspect no chance of any 3rd party results soon as we had hoped and they had promised. They stated something along these lines yesterday, saying now they will release 3rd party results only after receiving certification. That said, DGT does appear to be pretty sound both with the science and engineering, however I believe they will need more resources and a bit of luck to get this to market in the next 6-12 months. IMHO" --Tyler van Houwelingen at ICCF-17 
      • Stremmenos not believe claims of Defkalion - "These characters are part of the "company (theater?) Defkalion Green Global Technologies CTO, Greece-Canada-Swiss" known to have systematically deceived (the Levantine ...) for 8 months A. Rossi..." (22Passi; August 16, 2012)

      • Brillouin Energy Paper for ICCF-17 Shows COP of 2+ - A number of people had been anticipating information from Brillouin Energy from the NIWeek conference, but so far none has been forthcoming — however, a paper by Brillouin has recently been uploaded by New Energy Times that will be presented at the upcoming ICCF-17 conference in South Korea. The paper is authored by Robert Godes, Robert George, Francis Tanzella,... (E-CatWorld; August 10, 2012)
      • "Brillouin is also very solid, as we knew, but still probably at least 1 year from commercial readiness as well. IMHO" --Tyler van Houwelingen at ICCF-17
    • NanoSpire, Inc. 
    • Celani
      • New documents from Francesco Celani - Francesco Celani wrote me tonight allegandomi two new documents to share the web (22Passi; August 15, 2012) 
        • Celani Reports from ICCF-17 - A brief report from Francesco Celani at the ICCF-17 conference was posted on today. He seems understandably to be in good spirits and there are signs that the LENR cell which he is demonstrating at the conference might be getting some welcome attention. That the Korean TV is getting interested should be encouraging... (E-CatWorld; August 15, 2012)

In 1989 it took no more than an announcement to create sensational headlines… (ECatNews; )
  • General Cold Fusion
    • Is Cold Fusion Finally Being Accepted by the Scientific Community? Following recent LENR demonstrations at reputable institutions such as MIT, the University of Missouri, and the University of Bologna, as well as presentations by the world's largest instrument companies, National Instruments, a report by the European Commission's research and development center that suggests LENR has its place in the future of renewable energy, and most impressively of all, the fact that NASA is interested and reportedly filed two LENR patents last year; serious companies are now considering the possibilities of LENR and investing in certain research projects. (OilPrice; August 9, 2012)

(22Passi; August 14, 2012)
    • Mainstream Media Still Getting LENR Story Wrong - The mainstream media is still either ignoring or worse getting one of the most stories around today Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) or cold fusion wrong. The so-called science and technology reporters have ignored such recent developments as NIWeek where Francesco Celani was publicly demonstrating an LENR device (ColdFusion3; )
    • The "Theory of Quantized Space" could explain LENR - Firstly thank Daniele Passerini who gave me the opportunity to write to the blog 22 Steps of love and its surroundings and Ugo Abundo who encouraged me and helped me to express it as the moment feels ripe. The topic of the post is the "Theory of Quantized Space" briefly TSQ that could give a simple explanation for LENR and confine as a theory of unification of physics. (22Passi; August 12, 2012)
    • A Story of Cold Fusion Power - The long cold fusion summer is heating up nicely. The transmutation era is readying to be launched. LENR engineering is entering the business world. As I ponder this fact, I reflect with amazement at the amount, quality, and wealth of actions undertaken by "cold fusioneers" informing governments and politicos, activists and environmentalists, and many others about state of the art cold fusion; gratitude blossoms in my heart. (ColdFusionNow; August 13, 2012)
    • A summer to remember ... and you'll fall! - He reappeared a moment in the blog - since the weekend I will be very difficult - to do some 'point.

      • Cold fusion death = Electrochemist Martin Fleischmann, who claimed to have discovered cold fusion, died on 3 August aged 85. He and Stanley Pons, both at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, sparked worldwide controversy in 1989 when they announced to the world's media that they had fused deuterium atoms at room temperatures. Other scientists quickly debunked the experiments, and the claims have not been substantiated. (Nature; August 8, 2012)

It seems that... (E-CatWorld; August 12, 2012)
    • Nuclear Licensing To Be Suspended - In a surprising move the other day, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission suspended the issue of any new licenses to build nuclear reactors. This is in response to several petitions filed by a variety of people and organizations. The NRC says that no new licenses will be issued until the problem of disposal of nuclear waste has been solved. This means, in common sense verbiage, never. (ECatReport; August 10, 2012)

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.
