    • Defkalion - Hyperion
    • Rossi, Leonardo Corp - E-Cat
      • Back to the E-Cat — Rossi’s Level of Satisfaction is ‘Top’ - It’s not as easy as it once was to get Andrea Rossi to talk about his work. It appears that his new partners have put some restrictions on what he can publicly state — actually not very surprising considering the way corporations go about their business in highly competitive environments. Rossi has made it... (E-CatWorld; July 26, 2013)
      • Big Surprises Still to Come From Rossi & Co? - Rossi is still being coy about what he is up to. A few weeks ago he mentioned that ‘big surprises’ were coming, but gave no details. Here is a new exchange about that topic from today. Giuliano Bettini July 20th, 2013 at 3:17 AM Dear Andrea, we know that the E-Cat technology is undergoing.. (E-CatWorld; July 20, 2013)
      • Rossi: Can’t Find Stirling Engine Fit for Purpose - If you remember, a few weeks ago Andrea Rossi put out a request on the Journal of Nuclear Physics, asking if anyone had a Stirling Engine that might be suitable to work with an E-Cat. He said, “Please send your proposals for Sterling Engines to be coupled with the E-Cats (power 5 kW and... (E-CatWorld; July 31, 2013)
      • Andrea Rossi Answers Questions (JONP Follow-up) - Just recently, Frank Acland – a frequent poster on the Journal of Nuclear Physics and administrator of his own E-Cat related site, E-cat World, – asked Andrea Rossi some questions concerning development of the E-Cat. (ECatReport; July 30, 2013)
      • E-Cat FAQs - Andrea Rossi recently provided some pertinent information to the readers of the Journal of Nuclear Physics. As questions continue to come to the journal, many of them are simply the same question worded in different ways. (AndreaRossiECat; July 29, 2013)
      • Brainstorming E-Cat Ideas On JONP - Steven Karels is a frequent commenter on the Journal of Nuclear Physics. He recently provided an idea to Andrea Rossi on a possible source of power for the E-Cat. Andrea Rossi seemed quite interested.

(ECatReport; July 29, 2013)
      • Andrea Rossi Statement About His Silence - The Journal of Nuclear Physics is Andrea Rossi’s blog. However, he has not had a lot to say, lately. While there is still some highly technical – and often heated – discussions recorded on the JONP, but Mr. Rossi himself seldom comments these days. (AndreaRossiECat; July 31, 2013)
      • E-Cat Still Undergoing Changes - While most of the E-Cat community is close to ready to “hit the road running” with the technology perfected by Andrea Rossi, according to Mr. Rossi himself there are still changes being made. (ECatReport; July 21, 2013)
      • A New Division For Leonardo Corp. - Just recently, Andrea Rossi commented on an idea presented on the Journal of Nuclear Physics by Steven Karels. Mr. Karels said: “The significant characteristic of the eCat technology, in my humble opinion, is that it is excellent for long term, constant output applications. An example of this is the baseload electric power plant, previously discussed. (ECatReport; August 1, 2013)
      • Inherent Risks In Industrialization of the E-Cat - One of the greatest worries of the E-Cat community, when they learned that Andrea Rossi had taken on a major partner in the U.S., was that somehow his technology would disappear. (ECatReport; July 26, 2013)

      • Potential Industrial Association for LENR
        From: David Nagel 
        To: Sterling Allan 
        Cc: Steve Katinsky 
        Sent: Wednesday, July 17, 2013 3:20 PM
        Subject: Potential Industrial Association for LENR

        Dear Sterling,

        Steve Katinsky and I will propose foundation of a new Industrial Association for LENR at ICCF-18. You might find that interesting.

        Steve has a background doing multiple start up companies, and is now focused on LENR. He and I believe that our field may be nearing a tipping point, at least commercially, if not scientifically. 

        For the last year, we have been working toward the possibility of a new Industrial Association, which would represent the diverse interests of our field. We attended a conference at which energy-related associations in the US presented their viewpoints. It is clear that none of the existing US associations in the "energy space" will advance the needs of our field properly. 

        We are now ready to go public with our viewpoints regarding a potential new Industrial Association for LENR. They are contained in the attached brochure [PDF]. It will be distributed at ICCF-18. 

        This brochure is embargoed until next Monday, the start of ICCF-18. But, we wanted to give you a "heads up" on its coming. This possible Association could mean a lot to the field.

        Hope to see you in Columbia.

    • LENR practical test with a magnet - LENR Test (; July 30, 2013)
    • Commentary
      • As the 'big science' suppresses the findings - Twenty years have passed since Giuliano Prepared wrote, in English, Executive Intelligence Review , an article in which he criticized the powers of the great scientific journals (from Nature) have set the agenda in international research, and denounced in particular the treatment reserved for the inquisitorial cold fusion. An article extraordinarily timely. (22Passi; July 25, 2013)
      • Reasonable Doubts? - After two-plus years of publishing E-Cat World I have noticed a change in the tenor of the conversation regarding LENR — more specifically LENR+, the high powered brand of LENR that Rossi and Focardi introduced in early 2011. For a long time it seemed that we were in detective mode here, looking for every... (E-CatWorld; July 28, 2013)
      • Agreeing with Mary Yugo - I have been scanning the news to the upcoming ICCF-18 conference in Columbia next week I have come across a comment from the well known LENR/E-Cat/cold fusion skeptic Mary Yugo that I am surprised to say I sort of agree with. Now please don’t think I have suddenly turned skeptical myself — I’m as... (E-CatWorld; July 20, 2013)

        Winged creatures alight

Here is how it was reported on an Italian website: From (article) Crop Circles in Robertsbridge. Work of a joker or alien hand? Big surprise Sunday morning when you wake up the citizens of Robertsbridge. In a field of wheat […] (ColdFusionNow; July 27, 2013)
        • Notice the little dark triangles.  They seem to indicate the transmutation from each element:  Hydrogen (top left) supplying protons (why 6? . hmmm), clockwise (ascii is the letter of the element) -> Deuterium -> (+2) Suilur -> (+1) Potassium [K].  Appears to be indicating Hydrogen supplying protons to enable transmutations from Deuterium to Sulfur and Sulfur to Potassium.  It does add up correctly.  Other geometry no doubt is significant including the light and dark shadings of triangles - perhaps a 3D projection? -- Craig Butler
    • Applications
      • Hopes Turn To LENR For Cars - In the United States, the government “bought out” General Motors Corporation in order to keep it from going bankrupt. The government promised (which should have been the first premonition of failure) that this newly acquired yet unofficial government auto manufacturer would soon produce affordable electric cars. Move forward 5 years, and let’s see how that worked out. (ECatReport; July 22, 2013)

"It is harder to crack a prejudice than an atom." // "I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right." -- Albert Einstein

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.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

    "When you're one step ahead
of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."
