  1. Nostalgic enough, bought one of these lately : http://www.rccaraction.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Mattell-Vac-U-Form-ebay.jpg
  2. Hi. Similar situation yesterday... One judge decided to eliminate face masks against covid19. If hundreds of other judges do not coincide with that ruling against CDC; is it just ? In the event of future deaths due to the no-mask ruling, will the judge be guilty ?
  3. Wilting of technology. Just to share.

    Is this just ?

    The definition of justice I prefer says that - justice is to constantly and permanently impart to each one what is deserved - Is it just when only one judge of thousands decides to free/reverse/pardon someone accused of a crime ? Implies that justice is subject to personal opinions, not a set rule that fits consensus.
  5. Hi. If the equipment installed cost is minimal, everything tends to work well for the pocket. The marketing of solar water heaters are made for the pockets of vendor and installers to be happier than the customer. Heating water from photovoltaics does not offer a good efficiency as the photovoltaic panels are only ~18% efficient; and heating panels at least triple that. Heating water differs a great amount on your location climate. You may need to shield the elements from wind and cold losses... or not, with a great repercussion in costs. Last year I made a heater for a friend in Florida and he cannot be happier. Installed in series before his electric water heater turned very lazy now. well/municipal water source ------->solar heater------->electric water heater------->house distribution The method I used very similar to 30+ metres thin wall black 2 inch cheap irrigation polyethylene pipe as :
  6. Thanks. Yes, the ones that yield a pay for the process and leave some profit. Lithium is one good candidate.
  7. Now am more confused than before. Common Na, K, Cl, Ca are not the desired elements to collect/deposit in the electrodes.
  8. Hello all. Never had it fully clear, voids in knowledge... If a solution has -say all- the elements dissolved in water, and a direct electric current is passed in it; what elements will deposit on the electrodes if the voltage is 0.1V ; if it is 0.2V; if it is 0.5V; ... ... ... if it is 1.0V ? Can you cite examples for each voltage please, and which table tells it ? Electronegativity ? Electrochemical series ? Standard electrode potentials ?
  9. Good day. Somewhere read that elements can be extracted from seawater by - Adsorption by amidoxime-based polymers -- what is that and where to source such ? - Electro chemical cells --- What determines ignoring/rejecting sodium and chlorine ions from the process and collect only other than those ? Any 'special' voltage to ignore Cl and Na ions ?
  10. The companies that build the plexiglas separators for bank cashiers can surely do it. Probably cheap using leftovers that otherwise go to the dumpster. Edited - added. Just make sure anchoring properly the whole or the theft will include the clear safe box...
  11. Good day. Perhaps will be better in other subforum, please move as deserved. Food can be analyzed telling its amount of protein, carbohydrates, fats, minerals and all the components ingested and their weights. If the body is not using/storing something by digestive, genetic or absortion defect, how is that to be determined ? Can a blood/tissue test tell if a person has deficiency of -say potassium- or -say carbohydrates- , even with abundant enough consumption of those in food ? And the reverse, can some analysis tell there is too much -say protein intake- ? Is there a recommended percentage of the human body composition ? When I used to work in aquaculture, the determining growth element was phosphorus. If there was not enough of it in the food, growth was proportionally delayed/impaired no matter how much food was ingested. That was determined by comparing the elements constituting the body of a shrimp and the elements found in their food 🤨 If there was enough phosphorus in food, the other elements absortion increased to reach the balance proportions.
  12. Good day all. A male and female pair of nearby trees that need each other to produce fruit by pollination have both two main branches. If one branch is removed on each tree and swap-grafted with the other sex branch; will it work as if there were two self-serving separate trees ? Seen 'salad' trees multi-grafted to produce varieties of -say peaches- but never read anything like what am asking...🤨
  13. Hi all. Photovoltaic solar panels are around 18% efficient. That means a 1m2 panel should yield about 180 Watts to heat something electrically at full sun. What is the typical efficiency extracting heat directly from sun radiation, assuming also 1KW/m2 irradiance as in a 1m2 uncovered coil like : http://getgotechnology.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Sun-Coil-heating.jpg Would it be around 60% ? Wind and thermal losses should be taking a good chunk, right ?
  14. Never saw before. Several figures written different. -Image borrowed from the web-
  15. Hello all. Many years ago, saw painters (overseas) using milk to prepare their something, did not pay enough attention; unsure if was for a sub-base to walls or the finish paint itself. Remember seeing a never-sanded glass-like smooth surface on walls before applying paint. Perhaps that was the intention ? How does it work, how come there is no bacterial degradation with something prepared with milk ? I do have search engines but not interested in proportions and preparation, but more on your chemical explanation part of it.
  16. Genady : Are you talking about fertile eggs ?
  17. Hi. Hens do lay eggs without intervention of males of the species. That has to be a considerable expense and waste of resources. What is going on ? Why do eagles, ducks, pelicans... do not ? Or do they ?
  18. When in need to feed a starving -say dog- to keep alive; is a less valuable and proper choice to feed such dog with a mole or with a chicken ? We humans can prefer to 'discard' the life of a mole to feed the dog instead of a more 'appreciated' chicken. If that dog did bite your child, is the value the same ? Or, why humans prefer to not fish whales that consume millions of lives daily instead of maintaining alive millions of shrimp ? What can induce thinking the life of a giraffe is better to keep than the life of a beetle ? Is size a factor ? Is useability a factor ? Is sentiment a factor ? Your cat is more valuable to you than a feral cat in Namibia is to that native human there. Humans can give a value of preference that am trying to take out of consideration. Do all lives have the same rights to survive ? Am not good enough about expressing myself. Hope there is a recognizable idea above.
  19. Greetings. Is there intrinsic value (not given by humans) to different species ? Which is more valuable ? A mouse or a rabbit ? A sardine or a shrimp ? A camel or a donkey ? A watermelon plant or a maize plant ? A bee or a wasp ? A vulture or a seagull ? Or are all lives the same value, be it a hummingbird or a crab ?
  20. Fact from several years ago... A captured kidnapper finally revealed the location of the victim held by his other criminal fellows when a hired team of 'inquisition descendants' opened his belly with a knife and pulled his intestines out, while interrogated well alive. The kidnapped victim was located; later the 'disemboweled' crook was left to die tied to his bed surrounded by his guts; I call that mostly mental torture pretty much. A smile was worked on his dead face and the picture given to the press to show the prisoner was just... fine. Torture was then very right for finding the victim. -My boss, a multi millionaire philanthropist-

  22. Good day. Clearing the snow off my panels on he roof as it will be sunny the next week but still under 0oC and I wanted them generating, got curious... Sun does warm up solar panels, no doubt. Ambient too. But is panels heating only product of the solar radiation + environment or the panels themselves add warmth by the current produced ? In other words; a solar panel that has reached its temperature plateau under the sun while disconnected (no current flowing); it will increase its temperature when connected to a load and current flows, right ?
  23. Frequently I encounter situations I cannot discern. Example: Touching the volume knob on a "smart" phone device, the screen shows an interactive icon among other things... Is that telling me that the bell is off or is it a button to turn the bell off ? How to know what these "intuitive" icons mean ? There is nothing that helps identify it as a button nor a signal. Do I need a second brain transplant ? Does it happen to you too ? How do you resolve the doubt ? What is crooked in my thinking ? Is implementing these things a product of intelligent or idiots designing operational interfaces ? Are these meant for intelligent operators or for idiots ?
  24. Surprised I did not know these existed and I have been well into the recording industry since young. Anyone knows about them ? At a local recycling store, saw this. Compared to a normal 12 inch 'long play' on the picture :
  25. Hi. Magma is supposed to be in underground chambers and branches that may or may not be some day expelled by eruptions. Petroleum is supposed to be in underground chambers and branches too. I have never known of a reported volcanic eruption that the magma flowed/passed trough into a petroleum deposit and both ended on earth surface as a fiery explosive combustion from hydrocarbons fuel + heat + fire + oxygen. Is there a reason why such coincidental path event does not happen ? 😱
