As I am not American, and thus don't understand your countries government and laws, could anyone upon here explain to me what a constituional convention could do to your countries rules and governance?
Just so that I better understand what may be about to occur.

Hi there everyone ,

Just to touch base with you all quickly .

My husband Alan sent me this item , I thought you might find it interesting .

http://science.slashdot.org/article.pl? ... 13/1624258

Something to do with space vehicle engines I guess , but then I am not much good at science , as you know already .

The space party is going full steam ahead now , the venue is Yuri's Night NASA Ames April 09 and Obama has been invited.

Perhaps the policy topic will come out in the wash soon ... I hope so , a long haul for me and a few results would be much appreciated .

Constitutional convention sounds like a good idea ... especially if it is for space travel, going to see the film as well ...

Much love from your comrade hummingbird , still hovering around out here on the fringes

No end is in sight yet....

On other fronts more Bush bashing is underway, and doors are slamming on many fronts, a bit more input from husband Alan here ...

Mr. Bolland is getting competition (at least in one area) - or so it seems at the first glance.

"EEStor Issued a Patent For Its Supercapacitor"

http://yro.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/12/22/0238227

Further ref.: http://gm-volt.com/2008/12/21/eestor-is ... -function/

EEstor is also interesting due to it's (former?) CEO's shady connections.

On the other hand an inner voice tells me that one can accomplish the same and even more in a much simpler and elegant way.

She was Roddenberry's widow, too, wasn't she?

Whenever I've rented a car with a GPS, I called it "Madge" in Majel Barret's honor.

And then from the above linked article:
"The core ingredient is an aluminum coated barium titanate powder immersed in a polyethylene terephthalate plastic matrix.


Barium titanate? You don't say. I wonder where they got THAT idea.

How about this comment about the patent from a fellow named Ivan.

"The thing that's odd to me about the patent is how much marketing data is in there. It talks about potential to revolutionize the EV industry, and compares the technology to batteries... Everything you put in your claims that doesn't need to be there limits the scope. The only reason to put that crap in there is if you're planning on trying to trick somebody into believing it simply because the patent was granted. Any patent attorney with half a brain would have stripped that stuff out of there lest it be used to limit the scope of the patent in the future.

And I can remember my Dads words saying the same thing... thats why BASIC PATENT means just that. " A means by which".... I can hear Dad say.

I also remember one other thing. Once you reach a certain threshold and you have a breakdown.... things are never the same again. People and devices. Its better to back off and save the unit than to push it too far too fast and suffer the consequences.

And hello AM. Nice to see your post. On holiday? Linda

Lockheed Martin might not share Ivan's opinion: http://pressmediawire.com/article.cfm?articleID=4628

There is though always a possibility that the people there have been made to believe in something that is not what it seems.

Ms. Brown wrote:And hello AM. Nice to see your post. On holiday?


No, not at all. These days I have been experiencing some problems with my flatscreen monitor (next time I certainly won't buy Korean). Had to interrupt what I was doing in order to fix the problem and used the opportunity to chime in with a word or two. Otherwise no holidays for me this year (Christmas or New Year).

Still the rather unpredictable and cosiderably insane old me, I would say.

Mr. Schatzkin wrote:Barium titanate? You don't say. I wonder where they got THAT idea.


What is far more interesting in this respect is how they process barium titanate. Through a special procedure they cause the bulk ceramic to have the property of individual barium titanate crystals. Usually the material is consituted of barium titanate crystals which have voids in-between. These voids make the current to arc, a voltage breakdown occurs and the capacitor discharges. This special procedure though eliminates the pore space.

I wondered if this can be achieved without violence and high-energy methods. Would it be possible to simply grow a gigantic barium titanate crystal or even a purely natural crystal with the same properties, but without any "violent" procedures?

Let me just offer an analogy (perhaps not the best one, but still): several hundred years ago it was traditionally believed in Europe and China that metals go through a kind of evolution (speaking of Teilhard De Chardin!). The lowest rung in the ladder was occupied by lead and the highest by gold. I think that the Chinese thought it took some 4320 years for gold to emerge and the evolution to be completed.

Crystals are living beings. They also have feelings (like metals - and if anyone thinks that metals do not feel pain when one does violence to them, then he is very mistaken /ref.: 20th-century Indian research/. And no, this is not some heart-bleeding liberal talk). Why not accelerate their evolution? Then they will perhaps happily co-operate with you and serve you well.

You can do things in an elegant, simple and sweet manner or you can do them in a crude and complicated way.

Another example: 70 years ago there was in the West a gentleman from East Asia, who studied neurology at one of the most prominent Western universities. He was a brilliant thinker and was able to achieve an elegant synthesis between the traditional knowledge that he was privy to and the achievements of modern neurology. Among other this allowed him to establish a method through which nerve cells and tissue could be regenerated merely by simple (and yet demanding) mental techniques combined with a specific control of certain areas of the nervous system.

He had outstanding success with treating such afflictions as infantile paralysis, etc.

No chips, no drugs, no machines, no violence to the human body. The texts he authored are extremely rare and very difficult to get.

Some 40 years ago, I believe, he had to close down his institute. Nobody was interested in what he had to say.

I intentionally left out the details, since I myself do not have all of his texts yet.
