There’s currently an event at Cafe Reppublica in Terni, Italy, that is about energy from water, and there’s a presentation by Celani about their new reactor design for 2023. There are other presentations from him and one by his daughter (I think is his daughter), but this one seems to be new information.

Technology changes the world but people make it magical.
Long time no see. You haven't received my future focused newsletter for a while, but here I am again. And there's a good reason!
Never before I think I have noticed so much worry in people about what's lying ahead of us.
The climate. Wars. Leadership challenges. Inflation. Pace of change. AI. Disinformation. Lies.
But there's also something growing. I see people slowly turning back to our most important questions about human values, wellbeing, and our relation to technology. That is good.
My impression is that after 20 years of being thrown into a giant digital experiment of social networks and internet based news and information distribution, we are together starting to realise its consequences and how we should deal with it.
Thanks to SindreZG for bringing this to my attention.
The perfect nuclear fusion is not that of ITER: this is the ingredient that can solve all our energy need
Muons are in the crosshairs of physicists. And they are for good reason: they are one of your best assets when it comes to finding cracks in physics theory more consistent than all they have produced so far. Finding cracks in the Standard Model is not easy, but some of the experiments carried out at CERN and Fermilab in recent years involving these particles invite scientists to face the future of physics with very healthy optimism.
The muons, which are the true protagonists of this article, are very special. These elementary particles are only produced when high-energy collisions take place, such as those involving cosmic rays, and also in human-caused collisions at particle accelerators. In addition, they are unstable, which causes them to decay rapidly when they originate, disintegrating to give rise to the production of other particles, such as electrons, which are stable, or neutrinos (only the electronic neutrino is stable).
However, its usefulness goes far beyond the realm of theoretical physics. And it is that muons have the ability to intervene in nuclear fusion. In that same nuclear fusion that has been at the center of public conversation for several years, and about which we will talk much more in the future. The one supported by two projects as promising as ITER or IFMIF-DONES. Interestingly, its role in this way of obtaining energy it is very little known outside the realm of research, and, as we are about to see, it is exciting Fiance.......The perfect nuclear fusion is not that of ITER: this is the ingredient that can solve all our energy needsMuons are in the crosshairs of physicists.

Neutrinos probe the proton’s structure in surprising measurementNeutrinos probe the proton’s structure in surprising measurement – Physics WorldExperiment could complement electron scatteringphysicsworld.com
Following a bold suggestion from a postdoc researcher, an international team has discovered a robust technique for probing the internal structure of the proton by using neutrino scattering. Teijin Cai at the University of Rochester and colleagues working on Fermilab’s MINERvA experiment have showed how information about the proton can be extracted from neutrinos that have been scattered by the detector’s plastic target.
As early as the 1950s, physicists were using high-energy electron beams to determine the size of the proton. By measuring how these electrons scatter from targets, researchers have since managed to probe the interior structure of the proton and measure the charge distributions of their constituent quarks in detail.
In principle, similar measurements should also be possible using a beam of neutrinos, such as the beam generated at Fermilab. Despite being chargeless and almost massless, a tiny fraction of neutrinos in a beam will interact with protons, and scatter at characteristic angles. If this scattering can be measured, it would not only complement electron scattering experiments in probing proton structures; it may also provide important new insights into how neutrinos and protons interact.

This thesis is from 1992, submitted for an English Doctoral Degree out of Louisiana, concerning the study of scientific rhetoric; rhetoric being defined as matters of opinion, or the uncertain. In his Master thesis, David Lee Hatfield then presents Keslo, "...scientific theories may be considered symbolic representations of reality."
Reading David's dissertation provides an important consideration of rhetoric in science. The case study of cold fusion proves to be an excellent choice for his subject matter.

This dissertation examines the circumstances surrounding and the rhetoric involved in the cold fusion controversy begun on March 23, 1989, when two University of Utah electrochemists, Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons, announced by press conference the discovery of room-temperature nuclear fusion. The dissertation seeks to determine to what extent a rhetorical analysis of cold fusion discourse may increase understanding of the controversy; the success of Fleischmann and Pons as scientific rhetors; the ways in which scientists' attitudes, values, and assumptions manifest themselves in the discourse; and finally, what may be learned about scientific discourse in general by examining the cold fusion controversy in particular. The dissertation employs a method of analysis which combines Lawrence J. Prelli's special theory of scientific rhetoric that identifies relevant issues and lines of argument in scientific discourse, and S. Michael Halloran's method of close textual reading suggested in his study of DNA discourse. Examined were Fleischmann and Pons's initial publication announcing the cold fusion discovery in the Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry; Steven E. Jones's initial publication of his cold fusion discovery and several representative discourse samples from the journal Nature; and Fleischmann and Pons's latest article in the Journal of Fusion Technology. Several issues and lines of argument were identified. For the most part, cold fusion discourse addressed evidential issues, questioning the existence of the cold fusion phenomenon. Several lines of argument were evoked to address this issue, including experimental competence, experimental replication, external consistency, communality, and disinterestedness. Also discovered is division between electrochemists and physicists over what constitutes valid evidence: electrochemists looked to excess heat production as proof of fusion; physicists looked to neutron production. The study concludes that Fleischmann and Pons followed an unsuccessful rhetorical strategy in their initial published paper, one that addresses of issue of existence, but their evidence was insufficient to convince as to the scientific reasonableness of the cold fusion claim. An alternative rhetorical strategy was available to Fleischmann and Pons, one in which they could have interpreted, rather than asserted, their evidence, thereby evoking a less confrontational response from the scientific community.

- I dreamed about it. Over the past forty years, we have done a lot of research in the field of nuclear astrophysics. To understand the energy of stars, they tried low-energy nuclear reactions ... But most of all I was interested in cold nuclear fusion, as it can become a great scientific discovery that will revolutionize many areas, including the industrial one .

Japanese aversion to the word 'nuclear'
"When asked about the image they had of nuclear fusion, 60.7% of the respondents associated it with being “dangerous,” 41.9% said it made them “anxious,” and 24.4% said they “couldn’t trust it.” Only 5.9% knew that by design fusion cannot lead to an uncontrollable chain reaction."Amid renewed interest in nuclear fusion, Japan’s research reaches critical stageThe nation is helping to pave the way for a cutting-edge project in France, but international cooperation is moving toward competition.www.japantimes.co.jp
