Why Edison Achieved More for Mankind Than Tesla

In 2007, the company I work for was the first company to propose 48 V-DC as the voltage of choice in a local DC-System, when we introduced LED lighting that was DC ready. Schneider of France and General Electric (GE) were following suit in 2013 and 2014.

DC will be the on-site electricity distribution of choice. More and more technology driven companies are recognizing this and as a result there is now agreement that 48 V-DC is the voltage of choice, for now, for local battery systems and DC distribution.

However, this is still based on lead acid technology being cheapest in increments of 12 Volt and the low voltage directive. With LiFePO battery systems having 3 Volt per cell and no cost penalty for odd voltages the real local system voltages may move from 48 Volt (24 cell lead acid based) to 66 Volt systems (22 cell LiFePO based) and power DC equipment will have to tolerate 40 to 75 V-DC input voltages.

More and more devices in the home and the place of work are native DC devices that will benefit from direct DC feeds. Such devices include most of the modern life essentials for home and office like solid state LED lighting, solid state refrigeration, heating and air-conditioning, computers, phones and networking, access control, entertainment systems, water treatment and pumps. Even heavier production machinery can be converted to DC devices at a reasonable cost.

A DC infrastructure with a Battery Storage system lends itself to direct feed from an alternative energy source such as solar or wind. Generating and using the energy yourself has a significant impact on the effectiveness of alternatively generated energy. For example when generating feeding the grid and taking power back from the grid has a minimum loss of the complete process of 30%.

Losses in alternating current (AC) systems (other than heating) are typically between 15 to 30%, this is typical for a Laptop or PC power supply, a Microwave Oven power supply or an LED Lighting power supply. If those devices can be equipped with a DC to DC power supply with efficiencies ranging from 90 to 95% additional savings will be achieved.

The effect of NOT feeding the grid and using DC to DC power supplies is that that close to all of the locally generated energy can be used instead of throwing half of it away in a system that uses the grid instead of battery storage.

Multiple factors of recent technology advances make DC more viable now than in the past:

  • When Edison was making batteries up until a few years ago the technology was not very durable and represented the highest cost in a local DC system. Batteries lost their capacity quickly, were heavy and difficult to maintain, lasting around 1 to 3 years depending on the depth of the cycles. There are now new battery technologies commercially available at reasonable prices promoting a 10 year lifetime and 85% of their original capacity at the end of life with daily cycles.
  • Solar Panel prices are at a historical low.
  • Semiconductor Power Device Technology has become so good that system losses for charging or discharging batteries are in the 1% to 2% range for systems above 5 kW load.
  • Most devices are internally DC devices.
  • Lighting will move completely to LED which is a DC driven semiconductor technology.

In 2007 I have been accurately predicting that LED technology will replace any and all lighting and it is now clear that it will.

DC Systems will be introducing the home and office space in the future because they are the most efficient way to use local alternately generated energy the most efficient way and by doing so provide a robust disaster and backup strategy.

Another advantage of DC systems using the grid as a backup is that they can significantly reduce the demand on the grid. For companies that pay for the demand as well as for the energy used, this may also result in a significant reduction of their energy bill.

A Boating Accident Lawyer May Be Needed

No one wants to need one, but circumstances do arise when it might be advisable to hire one.

When we're on the water recreating, perhaps enjoying some beer in the hot sun, usually the last thing on our mind is safety. But boating accidents happen because people underestimate the dangers of boating. Naturally, we're very trained, both by media and experience, to be vigilant when driving a motor vehicle. But a motor boat? I'm on vacation, I do not want to think about anything negative.

The fact is, boating accidents can be very serious, resulting in severe injury or death. They often happen due to negligence. That's defined as "conduct that falls below the level of care that society considers to be reasonable to protect others or society at large from harm." Those deciding if negligence has occurred are the judge or a jury.

If an accident occurs where someone has been hurt or there's a loss of property, an attorney specializing in personal injuries, and sometimes even specifically boating personal injuries, should be consulted. A lawyer who is specifically adept with boating issues would not be as likely to be found in land-locked areas. So a personal injury attorney may be the only option. It's important to remember that there's a statute of limitations for such a claim. All the particulars of things involving the law, boating accidents, reporting of them, etc. will be subject to the laws of the state where the incident happens. It's the boat owner's responsibility to file a police report and proceed with whatever else is required.

It may be more prudent to set out of court if an accident occurs. Often the cost of going to court will be higher than the value of the accident itself. On the other hand, sometimes the person wronged his intentions "day in court" no matter what the cost. No matter what direction is taken, it's good to keep in mind that whatever has happened can not be undone. The time to think about the consequences of an accident are before one occasions – making efforts to be safety conscious and obey all posted rules and maritime laws and rules, which can be obtained.

I remember once being in court when a friend came in who was extremely stressed because he was being boating and given a ticket since his wake was too high as he approached the dock. He'd had no idea there even was such a rule. Much stress could have been avoided in this minor situation if he had gotten the needed education.

Tesla Up 1,081%: The Big Bet to Make Now

"You're insane."

My friend Sasha scoffed as we sipped lattes for our Sunday morning ritual. Across the table, Brian just shriggged, confident in his claim. "You'll see. Soon even your parents are going to want one. Top Gear is just lying."

I watched the exchange between my two friends, familiar with this discussion by now.

See, this was in 2011, and we were debating electric cars. More specifically, the Tesla (TSLA) Roadster – the first highway-legal electric car series you could purchase from a company. By then, the car had been on the market for about three years, and we had seen the Top Gear episode that impressed the shiny-new vehicle was defective (the reason Tesla sued Top Gear ).

We were fascinated by what this tech meant for our futures, so I ended up routinely discussing it with my 20-something friends over coffee.

After all, it was practically something out of a sci-fi novel – a peppy sports car that ran solely on lithium batteries. It was like some exciting science experiment you could test for yourself if you had $ 101,500 to spare.

Sasha was convinced the entire industry would crash and burn – she did not think people wanted to spend over $ 100,000 to own an unreliable car they had to charge "like an iPod."

And she was right – at least about the Tesla Roadster's brief lifespan.

It was on the market for about four years and fewer than 2,500 were sold. It was a failure for the most part. Even Tesla CEO Elon Musk said so.

But, as is often the case, the failure helped pave the road for a success story of epic proportions.

See, the Roadster launched Tesla on a trajectory that has pushed its stock up 1,081% in the past five years. The Tesla brand is now routiniously blared across the headlines of major news sites. And Tesla's success is only just beginning, despite the bumpy road – it's the most shorted stock on Wall Street right now due to the fears that have always surrounded innovative tech in its infancy.

That success is just one indicator of how this technology is set to utterly revolutionize the car market, despite what my pessimistic friend Sasha predicted.

See, electric cars are already capturing the imaginations of people around the globe.

In fact, the bank UBS forecasts that electric vehicles will make up 14% of global car sales by 2025, up from today's 1%. Countries are wisely preparing for this shift in the car market: Australia is already geared up to build the world's longest "electric highway" – spanning 1,250 miles and sporting 18 stations. Better yet, France and the UK both recently announced that they're banning gas-powered cars by 2040.

And brands and governments are increasingly working together to bring this piece of green energy into the mainstream by offering incentives: For example, BMW and Nissan just started offering discounts to San Diego residents that – when paired with a federal tax credit of as much as $ 7,500 and a state rebate of $ 2,500 – knock $ 20,000 off the cost of a new electric car.

To top it off, Volvo declared that starting in 2019, it will only make electric or hybrid cars.

Meanwhile, the technology continues to develop by leaps and bounds: Top Gear recently stripped the highly anticipated Tesla Model S about 670 miles on a single charge – although I admit it was in unrealistic conditions considering it was driven in the summer with the AC off. Not something I could do in South Florida without dying of heat stroke.

But this powerful machinery is why many experts have reserved one of these bad boys for themselves. For comparison's sake, the standard Tesla Model S 100D lasts about 300-odd miles. And that was already impressive.

As countries continue to diminish the burden of owning an electric car, the tech keeps evolving and institutions focus on making it more affordable – many of the hurdles for this innovative lithium-powered technology are falling by the wayside.

All of this goes to show how shortsighted electric-car (and Tesla) naysayers are.

So, as an investor, if you have not entered this market, now is absolutely the time to start researching the tech-based opportunities that will be sure to benefit. You do not want to be left behind as the next great car revolution races ahead.

Nicola Tesla – Forgotten Genius

Nikola Tesla, mad scientist or forgotten genius? Born in Croatia in the 1800's to Serbian immigrant parents, Tesla has directly influenced our modern world in ways that affect our everyday lives. Able to speak 6 languages ​​before he was 18 years old, Nikola Tesla has been touted as one of the greatest geniuses of the 20th century, accredited with invention of alternating current (AC Power), radio, Radar, remote control, robotics and the fluorescent lights and near 700 other patents. Unfortunately Tesla also had the reputation of a mad scientist due to eccentric behavior and over exaggerated announcements.

Upon immigrating to the United States, Tesla gained a position working with and assisting Thomas Edison. However it was not long before rivalries emerged between Tesla and Edison, as Tesla worked on alternating current directly competed with Edison's work on Direct Current. It was not long before the two took each other on head to head, at Niagara Falls, New York State. After a public battle between Tesla and Edison, Tesla won the race to build his first great dream – harnessing the power of Niagara Falls to produce power. By 1897, Tesla and alternating current had become a house hold name.

Free Energy

Tesla was obsessed with the idea of ​​providing the world with free energy and went to work perfecting the generation of electrical power without the use of fuels, solar or wind. He would pull the electrical power out of "the vacuum". He would also demonstrate the transmission of electric power without wires.

Using the "Shoeman Cavity", a 60km high region between the earth and the bottom of the Ionosphere and charged with megawatts of electrical power by lightning bolts generated worldwide, Tesla demonstrated transmission of electrical power over many kilometers. He lit fluorescent lamps by simply holding them with the field he had created. Tesla also demonstrated the transmission of electrical power through waves of energy passing through the earth lighting lamps up to 25 kilometers from his laboratory.

It was at this point Tesla was introduced to the infamous banker and financier, JP Morgan. Tesla convinced Morgan that he could build a worldwide broadcasting system that would make millions. Morgan promptly invested and Tesla began the Wardenclyff Tower project.

The Wardenclyff Tower project

Initially Wardenclyff was about radio broadcasting; although Tesla convinced JP Morgan that he could pull down power from the Ionosphere, making it possible to transmit electricity around the world without wires – free energy for everyone. At this time Marconi announced he had successfully completed a trans ocean radio transmission. Seeing there was no way to make money from a free energy device and fearing Marconi would monopoly radio Morgan pulled away from Tesla. Ironically, 40 years later the Supreme Court of the United States determined that Marconi copied his technology from Patents already held by Tesla, and it was Tesla who had discovered radio transmission, not Marconi.

Some say it was more than JP Morgan pulling out that shut down the Wardenclyff project. It was Tesla himself who scuttled it. He feared that the potential power generated by Wardenclyff could bring disturbing harm to the people and the planet. He knows militarization of this technology could bring down planes and sink ships.

Death Ray

In July 1934 Tesla announced his Death Ray. Tesla stated that with the use of only 12 of these weapons he could end all wars!

Tesla's Death Ray was a particle beam weapon, electrostatic acceleration of minute particles. Extremely small particles (micro projectiles) accelerated to extremely high speeds through the use of high voltage. The speed or velocity being used was so high, that very small particles could cause extreme damage. With a stream of highly accelerated particles focused on one spot, you could bring down a plane, sink a ship or take out a missile. This sounds very much like Ronald Ragen's Star Wars project (SDI – Strategic Defense Initiative) of the 1980's.

Tesla stated with just 12 of these weapons strategically placed around the United States, his "Teleforce" could have used to keep the United States safe from any foe. With the world on the verge of World War 2 the US Government took an active interest in Tesla and his Death Ray.

The US Government undertook work and development of Tesla's Particle Beam Technology in the 1940's and it quickly fell off the radar so to speak.

The New York Times of the same period stated that "Tesla's Death Ray could send a concentrated beam of particles through the air and cause armies of millions to drop in their tracks" and "is the most important of Tesla's inventions". However, in an unprecedented decision, Tesla made it impossible for any one Government to exploit his technology. He distributed the plans for his particle Beam Weapon in sections to the English, Canadian, American and Russian Governments (who at that stage was allied to the United States). Tesla's plan was that each Government would have to sit down and work together if they wanted to realize its invention.

Whatever happened to Tesla's Particle Beam Weapon? Try goggling Talon High Energy Laser Weapon and it may give you an idea!

In conclusion

Science today needs to take a new look at Tesla and his work. Tesla is everywhere around us in this modern world. Every time you turn on a light, use your mobile phone or microwave your dinner we are reminded of Nikola Tesla. We also need to imagine what might have been, a world of free energy and a world without wires.

Nikola Tesla Discovery! (Pemf) 100 Years of Technology – Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy

PEMF 100 Year History! Pulsed Electromagnetic Field History!

Five hundred years ago, Paracelsus a Swiss physician and alchemist, wondered if diseases could have manipulated by magnets, using lodestones as the best magnets available then.

But, natural lodestones are quite weak and few people paid much attention to his ideas until the discovery of carbon-steel magnets in the 1700's. During the 1800's, most of the discoveries related electricity to magnetism were made by the early pioneers of our modern technical world, men such as Gauss, Weber, Faraday and Maxwell among others. One of the more interesting magnetic theories postulates something called "Magnetic Field Deficiency Syndrome. " It is offered as an explanation of biomagnetic effects by Dr. Kyochi Nakagawa of Japan. The Earth's magnetic field is not fixed in position or strength. In the last hundred years, it has weakened on the average by about 6 percent. In the last thousand years, it has fallen nearly 30 percent.

Dr. Nakagawa argues that since humans evolved in a magnetic field, it is necessary for proper health. A falling magnetic field puts us at risk and magnetic therapy makes up the deficit. The truth is, no one really understands the mechanisms by which magnetic fields affect human health.

There are many theories but very little agreement. It is a problem as complicated as a human being, relating to dozens of organs and thousands of different molecules. Just because you can not explain something, does not mean it can not happen. For two hundred years, it has been able to build magnets from coils of wire powered by electricity called electromagnets. Such devices can be pulsed to produce magnetic fields that change very quickly. This opens a whole new world of medical applications since changing magnetic fields can induction tiny electrical currents in human tissue. Pulsing electromagnetic therapy is approved by the FDA to promote the healing of serious bone fractures. And powerful electromagnets are used in brain and muscle research to generate currents strong enough to fire nerves that trigger sensations and flex muscles. To date, there have been many basic research studies and many clinical trials of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy.

Historically, as far back as 1890, the American Electro-Therapeutic Association conducts annual conferences on the therapeutic use of electricity and electrical devices by doctors on ailing patients. Some implied current flow through the patient, while others were electrically powered devices. At first, only direct current (DC) devices were utilized in the medical doctor's office for relieving pain.

More PEMF Facts and History

The Greek physicist Galen noted the cleansing powers of magnetism in his book De Simplicum Medicamentorum Temperamentis Ac Facultatibus around 200 BC The word magnet comes from the ancient Greek magnes lithos, meaning "stone from Magnesia," an area of ​​Greece that was known for its volcanic rocks with magnetic attributes.

We now know the mineral in these rocks is magnetite. Magnetic therapy was already practiced in China around 2000 BC, as recorded in The Yellow Emperor's Book of Internal Medicine. In that ancient medical text, "magnetic stones" were advocated to correct health imbalances. (Lawrence 1998/1) In the Middle Ages magnetic treatment was delivered by placing "lodestones" on the body. Lodestones, or "guiding stones," were so named because of their use in navigational compasses by Viking, European and Arab sailors.

At the end of the 19th century the electron was discovered and electro-magnetism was brought into the realm of science on the atomic level. Albert Einstein showed that electricity and magnetism are not discrete phenomena, but different aspects of the same phenomenon. (Encyclopedia Britannica Vol. 18 15th Ed. 1991/2) Medical textbooks included magnetism and electricity as therapeutic alternatives for insomnia, fatigue, arthritis, pain and convulsions. Magnetic boots, rings, girdles, caps and ointments were available in mail-order catalogs. At the same time Daniel David Palmer, Canadian fishmonger turned "magnetic healer" founded Palmer's School of Magnetic Cure in Davenport, Iowa. When in 1895 he began applying short-lever manipulations to the spine with great effect, the Palmer School of Chiropractic was born.

Mention the word "magnet" and the word "therapy" together in the same sentence in North America today and many people start to backpedal. Several historical events explain why this is so. Magnetic therapy became shrouded in mystery in part because of Franz Anton Mesmer, an 18th century German physician and mathematician. He wrote his doctoral thesis on gravitational fields in human health. He postulated that the body had "magnetic poles" and that these poles move out of alignment with the universal magnetic flow causing all illness. He called magnetism within the body "animal magnetism." His patients sometimes lacked or went into convulsions in his Paris salon, claiming that they had been "mesmerized." Mesmer's notions of magnetism gradually became equated with hypnotic suggestion.

Magnetic therapy as a branch of medicine and as an area of ​​clinical research fell into further disfavor in North America as a result of the Abraham Flexner's report on "Medical Education in the United States and Canada," released in 1908. At the time of the Flexner Report, Drs. Will and Charlie Mayo, with their father, William Worrall Mayo, were still in the early years of the world's first group medical practice in the Minnesota frontier town of Rochester. The Mayo Clinic was an impressive display of great wisdom and forethought. By contrast, leaches, bloodlettings, elixirs and potions were also commonplace in most other parts of the United States and Canada. The rise in power of political medicine and the shift to nearly 100% dependence on pharmaceuticals for health led to an unfortunate period of dormancy, lasting 60 years, until the mid 1970s.

Beginning immediately after World War II, Japan began generating various electromagnetic wave shapes by changing electrical currents. This modality quickly moved to Europe, first in Romania and the former Soviet Union. From 1960 to 1985, nearly every European country designed and manufactured its own magnetic therapy systems. Todorov published the first book on modern electromagnetic field therapy in 1982 in Bulgaria. This work summarized clinical observations using magnetic fields to treat 2700 patients with 33 different pathologies.

The modern clinical application of electro-biology in North America began in 1971 when Friedenberg described their success in the healing of a nonunion fraction treated with 10 micro amps of direct current delivered with stainless steel electrodes. Avoiding the invasive nature of Friedenberg's direct currents, Dr. Andrew Bassett at Columbia University Medical Center introduced a new approach for the treatment of non-healing bone fractures and pseudarthroses that employed very specific, biphasic low frequency electromagnetic signals. Public awareness also increased in the mid-1970s amidst reports of successful enhancement of the speed and endurance of racehorses treated with electromagnetic fields. Based on the published work of Dr. Bassett, in 1979 the FDA allowed electromagnetic fields to be used in the USA for non-union and delayed union fractures. A decade later the FDA banned the use of pulsed radiofrequency electromagnetic fields for the treatment of pain and edema in superficial soft tissues. It is now commonly accepted that weak electromagnetic fields are capable of initiating various beneficial biological processes including healing for delayed fractures, pain relief, and modulation of muscle tone and spasm.

Having healthy cells is not a passive process. Active, regular tuning-up of our cells is not only feasible, but also necessary to slow aging and reduce the risk of cell dysfunction. We are, after all, only as healthy as our cells. Imperceptible cell dysfunction that is not corrected early can lead to disease. Fine-tuning can be done daily in only minutes, using pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs). In addition, when there is a known imbalance (when symptoms are present) or there is a known disease or condition, PEMF treatments, used either alone or along with other therapies, can often help cells rebalance dysfunction faster.

PEMF works to:

· Reduce pain, inflammation, the effects of stress on the body, and platelet adhesion.

· Improve energy, circulation, blood and tissue oxygenation, sleep quality, blood pressure and cholesterol levels, the uptake of nutrients, cellular detoxification and the ability to regenerate cells.

· Balance the immune system and stimulate RNA and DNA.

· Accelerate repair of bone and soft tissue.

· Relax muscles.

PEMFs have been used extensively for decades for many conditions and medical disciplines, and results can be seen in animals as well as humans. The National Institutes of Health have made PEMFs a priority for research. In fact, many PEMF devices have already been approved by the FDA, some specifically to fuse broken bones, wound healing, pain and tissue swelling, and treat depression. Most therapeutic PEMF devices are considered safe by various standards and organizations.

What are PEMFs and how do they work?

Science teaches us that everything is energy. Energy is always dynamic and, therefore, has a frequency; it changes by the second or minute, for example, at the very least.

All energy is electromagnetic in nature. All atoms, chemicals and cells produce electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Every organ in the body produces it own signature bio electromagnetic field. Science has proven that our bodies actually project their own magnetic fields and that all 70 trillion cells in the body communicate via electromagnetic frequencies. Nothing happens in the body without an electromagnetic exchange. When the electromagnetic activity of the body ceases, life ceases.

Physics, that is, electromagnetic energy, controls chemistry. This in turn controls tissue function. Disruption of electromagnetic energy in cells causes impaired cell metabolism, whatever the initial cause. This happens anywhere in the disease process.

PEMFs address impaired chemistry and thus the function of cells – which in turn, improves health. PEMFs deliver beneficial, health-enhancing EMFs and frequencies to the cells. Low frequency PEMFs of even the weakest strengths pass right through the body, penetrating every cell, tissue, organ and even bone without being absorbed or altered! As they pass through, they stimulate most of the electrical and chemical processes in the tissues. Therapeutic PEMFs are specifically designed to positively support cellular energy, resulting in better cellular health and function.

Devices that produce PEMFs vary by a number of important features: frequency, waveform, strength, and types of stimulators. Frequencies can be simple or complex; and high, medium or low. Intensity can also be high, medium or low.

No "one-size" treatment fits all situations. Most PEMF devices help to vary degrees depending on the problem or condition, but selecting the wrong device may produce unsatisfactory results. Since the body is complex, PEMFs are ideal devices to be able to get good results without needing a myriad of different treatments.

Most people recognize that oxygen, food, and water are extremely essential aspects of well being. Interestingly, very few folks understand that Magnetic Resonance Stimulation, (sometimes referred to as "MRS" or PEMF with means "Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields"), is also critical for every living thing on Earth. Actually NASA, (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) and RKA (the Russian Federal Space Agency) have been using MRS and PEMF Therapy to help prevent magnetic deficiency disorders in their space-traveling explorers for many years. And, since the earliest space missions, many studies have shown that living human tissues and cells absolutely need PEMF.When these magnetic fields are so important to life as we know it, why have not you heard of PEMF or MRS as often as you have the need to drive 8 glasses of water a day? Great question. In the past, people did not really need to concern themselves with PEMF.

The Earth supplied adequate amounts and people lived a lot differently than we do now. They were outdoors more often and always receiving sufficient quantities of MRS naturally.Recently, however, modern life has changed the way humans interact with nature and people have altered the Earth's ability to produce PEMF. People have realized the benefits of PEMF Therapy and have increasingly looked out answers. In the past, man lived outside or in buildings made of natural materials, (such as huts and adobe homes).

Humans also spent a lot of time outside farming crops and hunting. But now, many people spend large quantities of time inside metal and concrete buildings. They work in them, shop in them, and go home to sleep in them. Many people no longer need to farm or hunt and may spend as little as 10% of their time actually outdoors. In the past, people traveled by horseback or on camels or other animals – outside and in touch with nature. But today, we find ourselves increasingly stuck in cars and subway cars and other metal and plastic and man-made modes of transportation. People also wear shoes, often with rubber soles rather than walking around barefoot or in shoes made from natural materials. All of these things separate us from the Earth's natural PEMF.Additionally, the PEMF that our planet IS producing is actually about 50% weaker than it was in the 1700? S. The reasons for this decline are unclear but some scientists believe it is linked to other environmental issues.Our modern lives also bombard us with unnatural, (aka "bad") PEMF from PCs, laptops, notebooks, cellular phones, TVs, mp3 players and other devices.Our bodies are being assaulted on all sides and may be literally starving for PEMF. PEMF bed supplies users with all-natural,

Earth based PEMF.This device allows people to bask in a relaxing bath of natural PEMF which allows to recharge the body's batteries by restoring a natural balance to the body. The PEMF has been shown to be able to increase energy, improve mental focus, reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and allow folks to sleep better at night. It has also been a successful way to help prevent certain illnesses and even helps to facilitate relaxation and enhance people's mood.

They can be. Evidence is mounting that a new form of pollution called "electrosmog" is a very real threat because it is disruptive to cell metabolism. Manmade, unnatural EMFs come from electrical wiring and equipment, for example, power lines, communications towers, computers, TVs, cell phones – everything from the wiring in our homes to fluorescent lighting to microwave ovens, hair dryers, clock radios, electric blankets and more.

Electrosmog EMFs are not designed with the body in mind. They can be a strong inducer of stress in the body and, therefore, drain our energy. Electrosmog includes "dirty" electricity, ground currents, microwaves and radio waves. Microwaves are not only from leaky microwave ovens, but also from cell towers, cell phones and wireless equipment.

Electrosmog is all around us and can only be partially blocked. One of the best solutions is to take measures to decrease your exposure. With the therapeutic PEMFs, one can purposely add beneficial balance frequencies to the body to decrease the burden of the negative effects of electro smog.

PEMFs and Magnets: What's the difference?

PEMFs are frequency-based, applied to either the whole body or parts of the body. PEMFs may only be needed for short periods of time, while the effects last for many hours, setting in motion cellular and whole-body changes to restore and maintain balance in metabolism and health. The body does not acclimate, or "get used to," the healthy energy signals of therapeutics PEMFs, even if used for a long time, compared to magnets.

Stationary (or "static"), non-varying, magnetic fields from magnets have fixed strengths. They are used in mattresses, bracelets, knee wraps and the like. Most have very low penetration into the body, resulting in a very limited ability to affect deeper tissues, and they rarely treat all the cells of the body simultaneously. Only skilled practitioners may guide you to get the best results from these approaches.

Experience with PEMFs

There are quite a number of PEMF systems available now in the US, for daily in-home use, that can help meet your unique needs. Some are FDA-approved and many more are available over-the counter or from various experienced practitioners. Some whole-body systems have been available in the US for over a decade and have been used in Europe by tens of thousands of people for a wide variety of problems without significant negative effects for over 20 years. One PEMF system has been studied through NIH-supported research at the University of Virginia for Rheumatoid Arthritis. These whole body systems have been used worldwide, not only by health-conscious individuals for health improvement and maintenance, but also by world-class and Olympic athletes for increased endurance, enhanced performance, and faster recovery.

Car Rust Treatment – How to Get Rid of Rust

Rust calls on rust; the chemical process of rusting is a self-accelerating process. You can call it a recursive process. Let's learn how it happens:

Rust is a result of reaction between water and iron in presence of oxygen. Rust is a series of iron oxides which is porous and larger in size. As a result, it lets water and oxygen access the deeper part of the iron and the entire metal falls prey to corrosion.

Once rusting begins, it is difficult to put a stop. Here, the best way to protect iron products is by insulating them properly. Once rusting begins, you need to clean rust completely; if traces of rust are left, it will corrode the rest of the metal.

What is rust – chemical explanation:

Rust is hydrated iron oxide. It appears as brownish coating over the surface of iron products. Oxygen, water and iron react to form this compound.

Rusty metal is weak and fragile. Rust leaves ugly stains on the surfaces in contact. Machine parts, instruments, automobile parts and any other item made of iron are susceptible to rust.

Hope you have realized why it is more important to protect metals from rusting. Once metal products start to rust, it will not stop until the entire tool is ateen. Here, you need to be alert from the beginning. If somehow rusting begins you need rust treatment immediately.

How to prevent rusting:

Keep water and moisture away from your iron product and it will not rust. Iron rusts when it comes into contact with water; Revoke the main chemical agent and the reaction will not take place at all.

Now, moisture and oxygen are everywhere; so how to stop them to come into contact with the metal? Let's coat the surface of the metal with an insulating material that would not allow moisture, water and oxygen to penetrate in.

As we all know that oil and water repel each other, grease and oil can be a good insulating material for metals. Apply oil, grease, primer or any other oil-based emulsion all over the metal surface to stop rusting.

You can get many rust proof coating in market. However, the problem begins when the coating peels off. Rusting can start from a small bare metal surface. Then the entire coating gets removed easily and the iron is exposed.

Here, even a minute hole should be resealed as early as possible. Re-sealing is done by painting rust-proof emulsion or through chemical or mechanical process.

How to choose anti-rust emulsion or solution:

The nature of the coat should be chosen keeping in mind where it is going to be used. If you are going to apply the coating on the metal parts of a food packaging machine, the emulsion should not contain anything toxic.

Rustproof emulsions that are going to be used on machineries should be non-flammable as well; otherwise you chance the risk of accidents. Top of all, the product must be environment-friendly. Look for biodegradable and natural rustproof emulsions.

Rust Cleaning:

To clean rust from metals, use organic rust remover. You do not need to put any effort when you use spray based rust cleaners.

Remember, how laborious it is to remove rust with sandals! With organic rust removers you can get rid of rust without any mechanical work.

How to Replace a Transfer Case in a Jeep Cherokee

The Jeep Cherokee transfer case is an essential part of the wheel drive system. The transfer case is separate from the transmission and can be easily removed for service or replacement. Here is how I did it last time I replaced one.

I began by draining the fluid by removing the bottom drain plug. Then I supported the transmission. Next I removed the front and rear drive shafts. An 8mm hex wrench and a pry bar was all that was needed.

I then unbolted the transmission mount using a 13MM socket. These nuts are inside the cross member and are accessed through the holes. Then I knocked the cross member by removing the 15MM bolts and nuts that held it up. That cave me access to the transmission mount that is held to the transmission by two 18MM bolts. These bolts have thread locking compound on them and are hard to turn all the way out. I monitored the mount which is often broken in high mileage vehicles like this one but it was fine. Next I folded the exhaust mount off the tab.

Rather than mess with the shift linkage bushing in the cold, I unbolted the shift lever from the transfer case. I selected 2wd and used a 9/16 wrench to remove the nut and washer. I carefully lowered the linkage out of the way. Normally I press out the linkage from the bushing. Unbolting the lever was easy so I may begin using that method as standard practice.

Next I removed the speedometer drive by unbolting the 13MM retaining bolt and removing the clip. I left the sender attached to the wiring harness. I dropped the harness away from the mounting tab on top of the case. I unplugged the mode light switch and moved the wiring out of the way.

Next, I unbolted the six 9/16 nuts that hold the case to the transmission. Five are accessed using a box end wrench. The last one is behind the transfers case shift linkage bracket and has to be accessed using a 9/16 socket and a long extension. The two near the exhaust pipe take some patience to get off without you remove the exhaust pipe. Since this one was in good shape and welded in place, I left it alone. Lowering the case down helps get access to these two nuts.

With the six nuts off, the transfer case slides easily off the transmission. I then prepared the replacement case to go back in by putting it in 4wd. This allowed me to rotate the front yoke and make the input splines turn to line them up. With the replacement case in place I started a nut to hold in there.

Next, I tightened all six nuts. I then reinstalled the shift linkage, wiring harness and speedometer drive. I put the case in 2wd to make the linkage line up with the lever. I then reinstalled the front drive shaft as it is easier to access with the cross member out of the way. I filled the transfer case with fluid before putting up the rear drive shaft as it is easier to get the bottle in place with out the drive shaft in the way. The 231 holds a little more than a quart of ATF.

I then put up the exhaust bracket and transmission mount. Again, these bolts are hard to turn due to the thread locking compound on them. I then put up the cross member and bolted it to the body before lowering the weight of the transmission onto the cross member. I then reinstalled the four nuts that hold the transmission mount to the cross member.

Then, I installed the rear drive shaft. I checked for leaks and loose bolts and then lowered the Jeep for a test drive. The replacement transfer case worked fine and shifted to all gears with out adjusting the linkage. If a linkage adjustment is needed, the loosen the 13 MM bolt on the linkage and slide it to the proper position.

Scottish Road Traffic Law: The Dangers of Dangerous Driving … The Road to Hell!

You've just been taken over by the police, and as you're being charged with dangerous driving, you feel a gut wrenching spasm as you contemplate the consequences of being convicted of such a serious road traffic offence. You are not exactly sure the penalty for it but intuitively you know it will be severe. In fact your intuition has served you well – the mandatory penalty is a minimum 12 month disqualification and you will also require to re-sit an extended driving test. For many people this is unthinkable as their job depends on their license – and their house, family and finances depend on their job. Insurance premiums go through the roof and any disclosure request by prospective employers will not look so pretty. It's at this juncture you need an expert road traffic lawyer to steer you off the road to hell.

Many dangerous driving prosecutions can be resolved by negotiating a lesser charge with the plaintiff such as a careless driving charge or even a charge of speeding. These offsections are much more palatable and most often result in penal points being approved on your license instead of a disqualification. Speeding carries a range of penal points between 3 to 6 and careless driving between 3 to 9, depending of course on the seriousness of the offense and your previous driving history. The court has a discretion to induce disqualifications for careless driving and speeding but both offenses would have to be extreme or the driver's driving record poor.

There are of course a number of outright defences to dangerous driving including defences of a technical nature such as a failure of the police to carry out correct procedures when charging you. On many occasions the police evidence does not bear scrutiny and on other occasions the facts alleged by the prosecution do not amount to dangerous driving.

You might ask what the definition of dangerous driving is. Well it's provided in s2 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 as a standard of driving that falls far below that of a careful and competent driver, and that such a driver would be aware of that. It's defined therefore as a standard of driving rather than any reference to a specific manner of driving. Accordantly it comes in various guises. It can amount to speed alone where a driver drives so fast it is obviously not taking account of potential dangers which could arise where for example he passes other road users at twice the speed limit. Dangerous driving can amount to a serious error of judgment which may or may not cause an accident such as overtaking round a blind corner in heavy rain. It can amount to a dangerously dangerous act such as deliberatively driving the car at someone or performing stunts in a car. Serious cases can result in a prison sentence particularly something of this nature.

The offer has to be committed on a road or other public place which although is broadly defined, it's surprising what is excluded. The court could still consider however whether the offense amounts to culpable and reckless conduct.

At the most serious end of the spectrum ie where as a result of a death occurring as a consequence of bad driving the Crown can prove a charge of causing death by dangerous driving. This offense can be further aggravated by an allegation of being under the influence of drink or drugs at the time. These cases are prosecuted in the High court and lengthy prison sentences upon conviction are most likely even for first offenders.

While each case has to be determined on its own facts and circumstances, there are a vast number of reported cases which have been decided in the appeal court over the years, which provide invaluable guidance to what constituents dangerous driving. It's far from a straight forward process however as reported cases can often be inconsistent with each other and no two cases are exactly the same. It is vitally important that an expert road traffic solitor is intended from an early stage who possesses the necessary skills and drive to prepare and investigate your case and effectively and procedurally argument all legal points in your favor.

A Boating Accident Lawyer May Be Needed

No one wants to need one, but circumstances do arise when it might be advisable to hire one.

When we're on the water recreating, perhaps enjoying some beer in the hot sun, usually the last thing on our mind is safety. But boating accidents happen because people underestimate the dangers of boating. Naturally, we're very trained, both by media and experience, to be vigilant when driving a motor vehicle. But a motor boat? I'm on vacation, I do not want to think about anything negative.

The fact is, boating accidents can be very serious, resulting in severe injury or death. They often happen due to negligence. That's defined as "conduct that falls below the level of care that society considers to be reasonable to protect others or society at large from harm." Those deciding if negligence has occurred are the judge or a jury.

If an accident occurs where someone has been hurt or there's a loss of property, an attorney specializing in personal injuries, and sometimes even specifically boating personal injuries, should be consulted. A lawyer who is specifically adept with boating issues would not be as likely to be found in land-locked areas. So a personal injury attorney may be the only option. It's important to remember that there's a statute of limitations for such a claim. All the particulars of things involving the law, boating accidents, reporting of them, etc. will be subject to the laws of the state where the incident happens. It's the boat owner's responsibility to file a police report and proceed with whatever else is required.

It may be more prudent to set out of court if an accident occurs. Often the cost of going to court will be higher than the value of the accident itself. On the other hand, sometimes the person wronged his intentions "day in court" no matter what the cost. No matter what direction is taken, it's good to keep in mind that whatever has happened can not be undone. The time to think about the consequences of an accident are before one occasions – making efforts to be safety conscious and obey all posted rules and maritime laws and rules, which can be obtained.

I remember once being in court when a friend came in who was extremely stressed because he was being boating and given a ticket since his wake was too high as he approached the dock. He'd had no idea there even was such a rule. Much stress could have been avoided in this minor situation if he had gotten the needed education.

Understanding The Different Types of Personal Injury Attorneys

Perform a search on the Internet for the phrase "personal injury attorney" or "personal injury lawyer" and you will see thousands of law firms. Yet how do you see through those results to conclude who the most impressive personal injury attorneys are in your area? This article will allow you to ignore thousands of us dollars lawyers are paying for search engine marketing tactics and find out who are first-rate injury attorneys.

While the first points you absolutely have to check the first time looking into PI attorney websites is wherever the attorney / lawyer manages just personal cases cases or do they also handle other types of cases as well. A great number of attorneys, especially those beyond the borders of big urban areas, are generally more of the traditional legal practitioners and take care of a little of everything. Just like everything else nowdays, you are going to be more satisfied obtaining a lawyer who focuses primarily on accident injury law only.

You do not only need to track down and hire an attorney at law that exclusively does accident damage for a living, you should also make sure that law firm is experienced in your actual sort of claim. As far as personal injury law firms go in general, when you have found a personal injury attorney that primarily takes care of PI cases for a living, then you should be alright hiring him or her for a car accident case. This kind of case is considered the bread and butter of the majority of personal injury lawyers.

Most people would be smart to narrow down the filter a little bit more if you have a complicated scenario like medical malpractice or perhaps a product defect claim. If you are facing such a law suit, you absolutely should try to find, interview, and engage a personal injury attorney who specializes in these types of cases. A good, candidate injury attorney that does not do a lot of these cases will refer you to a law firm who does. The last thing a lawyer wants is to be in over their head.

The most valuable resource for any attorney at law, and you also, is time. An injury lawyer will need to have the opportunity to provide you the attorney-client support that is required along with the time to correctly look into and supervise your case. There are often 3 or more types of injury attorneys when it comes to time and the number of cases that they work on at the same time.

For starters, you'll notice the high volume level lawyers that advertise on Television. It is not unusual for these accident lawyers to control 100's of cases at one time. Therefore, their time will be spread thin. That does not mean that they will not do a good job. They just need to have the office staff to do so.

Second, there are law offices that have just below 100 cases during a period. You probably get excellent service and positive results from those kinds of attorneys assuming that they're good and also have high quality back office operations.

Third, you will find injury lawyers who manage a small number of cases, say beneath 50. These offer much more time to spend on you and your case.

In conclusion, two of the key questions should be asking any prospective attorneys

1) wherever they handle only 100% personal injury cases and
2) how many active cases do they have right now.
