The Playground

  • The Electric Universe Theory (true or false) points out that the electric forces can totally mangle earth's crust and shows how certain round craters cannot be made with an impact. Too round, no material left over found etc.
    The argument that for example lots of platinum or Rhenium or other rare metals are found in those 'impact sites' can simply be explained by the electric zapping of our little blue planet. The whole notion that it is constantly meteors creating all mayhem and geology on earth or that they are the cause for 'climate change' etc cannot be maintained when one looks at this in more depth.

    Ow and then of course how we are constantly reminded that the next one may hit us on the head, so be really scared... !
    Did I mention that there is another one coming in really close this time! I mean 7 times the distance to the moon is close right?!

    Meteors and such are used to scare us and keep us accepting certain explanations that make no sense. Like an endless stream of bullets waiting to hit earth because we are bad bad people is what this whole thing sound like to me.

    Just a suggestion, we research the effect of large discharges and ionization on rocks, soil, water and air and see if there is anything to this idea of in-situ transmutations. Just an idea of course, we can always safely and comfortably keep believing in asteroids hitting us on the head!

  • A virtual power plant (VPP) is a cloud-based distributed power plant that aggregates the capacities of heterogeneous distributed energy resources (DER) for the purposes of enhancing power generation, as well as trading or selling power on the electricity market. Examples of virtual power plants exist in the United States, Europe, and Australia.


    Power generation Edit

    A virtual power plant is a system that integrates several types of power sources to give a reliable overall power supply.[1] The sources often form a cluster of different types of dispatchable and non-dispatchable, controllable or flexible load (CL or FL) distributed generation (DG) systems that are controlled by a central authority and can include microCHPs, natural gas-fired reciprocating engines, small-scale wind power plants (WPP), photovoltaics (PV), run-of-river hydroelectricity plants, small hydro, biomass, backup generators, and energy storage systems (ESS).


    This system has benefits such as the ability to deliver peak load electricity or load-following power generation on short notice. Such a VPP can replace a conventional power plant while providing higher efficiency and more flexibility, which allows the system to react better to load fluctuations. The drawback is a higher complexity of the system, which requires complicated optimization, control, and secure communications.[2] An interactive simulation on the website of the VPP operator Next Kraftwerke illustrates how the technology works.[3]


    According to a 2012 report by Pike Research, VPP capacity would, from 2011 to 2017, increase by 65%, from 55.6 gigawatts (GW) to 91.7 GW worldwide, generating from $5.3 billion to $6.5 billion in worldwide revenue in 2017.[4] In a more aggressive forecast scenario, the clean-tech market intelligence firm forecasts that global VPP revenues could reach as high as $12.7 billion during the same period.[5]


    "Virtual power plants represent an 'Internet of Energy'", said senior analyst Peter Asmus of Pike Research. "These systems tap existing grid networks to tailor electricity supply and demand services for a customer. VPPs maximize value for both the end user and the distribution utility using a sophisticated set of software-based systems. They are dynamic, deliver value in real time, and can react quickly to changing customer load conditions."


    Ancillary services Edit

    Virtual power plants can also be used to provide ancillary services to grid operators in order to help maintain grid stability. Ancillary services include frequency regulation, load following, and providing operating reserve. These services are primarily used to maintain the instantaneous balance of electrical supply and demand. Power plants providing ancillary services must respond to signals from grid operators to increase or decrease load on the order of seconds to minutes in response to varying levels of consumer demand.


    Since ancillary services are typically provided by controllable fossil-fuel generators, future carbon-free electrical grids that contain high percentages of solar and wind must rely on other forms of controllable power generation or consumption. One of the most well-known examples of this is Vehicle to Grid technology. In this case, distributed electrical vehicles connected to the grid can be controlled together to act as a single virtual power plant. By selectively controlling the rate at which each individual vehicle charges, the grid sees a net injection or consumption of energy as if a large scale battery was providing this service.


    Similarly, flexible demand in the form of heat pumps or air conditioners has also been explored to provide ancillary services to the grid.[6] As long as indoor thermal comfort is maintained, an aggregation of distributed heat pumps can be selectively turned off and on in order to vary their aggregate power consumption and follow an ancillary service signal. Again, the effect on the grid is the same as if a large scale power plant was providing the service.


    Since they operate in parallel, virtual power plants can have the advantage of higher ramp rates than thermal generators, which is especially important in grids that experience a duck curve and have high ramping requirements in the morning and evening. However, the distributed nature generates communication and latency issues, which could be problematic for providing fast services like frequency regulation.

  • But not to stress the point too much we all live in reality, not some 'virtual reality' which is reminiscent of Rossi's dogged persistence in trying to flog (sell) his E-cats. He has created a 'virtual reality' where his E-cat works and a pyramidal sales structure wherein the few 'first-served' will be the only ones who will get their money back when they discover the bad news that they only work in theory (ie virtually) - but unfortunately not in practice. Which makes il Dottore the snake-head of a Berni-Madoff type ponzi scheme. That is, until he gets his Ni-Cu mixtures right!

    Abstract

    The paper presents the effect of COVID-19 mRNA (Pfizer/BioNT) vaccine on in vitro glial cells of the brain studied by means of Raman spectroscopy and imaging.. The results obtained for human brain normal and tumor glial cells of astrocytes, astrocytoma, glioblastoma incubated with the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine Pfizer/BioNT vaccine show alterations in the reduction-oxidation pathways associated with Cytochrome c.


    We found that the Pfizer/BioNT vaccine down regulate the concentration of cytochrome c in mitochondria upon incubation with normal and tumorous glial cells. Concentration of oxidized form of cytochrome c in brain cells has been shown to decrease upon incubation the mRNA vaccine. Lower concentration of oxidized cytochrome c results in lower effectiveness of oxidative phosphorylation (respiration), reduced apoptosis and lessened ATP production. Alteration of Amide I concentration, which may reflect the decrease of mRNA adenine nucleotide translocator. Moreover, mRNA vaccine leads to alterations in biochemical composition of lipids that suggest the increasing role of signaling. mRNA vaccine produce statistically significant changes in cell nucleus due to histone alterations. The results obtained for mitochondria, lipid droplets, cytoplasm may suggest that COVID-19 mRNA (Pfizer/BioNT) vaccine reprograms immune responses. The observed alterations in biochemical profiles upon incubation with COVID-19 mRNA in the specific organelles of the glial cells are similar to those we observe for brain cancer vs grade of aggressiveness.

    Conclusions

    We showed that new tools of Raman imaging we present in this paper raise exciting possibilities for new ways to understand links between pathways of cancer, immune responses, and recognize metabolites that regulates these pathways.


    We used Raman spectroscopy to monitor changes in the redox state of the mitochondrial cytochromes in human brain cells in vitro of normal astrocytes, astrocytoma, glioblastoma upon incubation with mRNA vaccine. We observed the effect of the mRNA vaccine on biodistribution of different chemical components, particularly cytochrome c, in the specific organelles of human brain glial cells: nucleus, mitochondria, lipid droplets, cytoplasm, rough endoplasmatic reticulum and membrane.


    We showed that mRNA vaccine (Pfizer) changes mitochondria by downregulation of cytochrome c resulting in lower effectiveness of respiration (oxidative phosphorylation) and lower ATP production. It can lead to lower immune system response.


    Decrease of Amide I concentration in mitochondrial membrane potential may suggest functional deterioration of the adenine nucleotide translocator. mRNA vaccine modifies significantly de novo lipids synthesis in lipid droplets. The results presented in paper suggest that upon incubation with mRNA the role of signaling function of lipid droplets increases. The observed alterations in biochemical profiles upon incubation with the Pfizer/BioNT in the specific organelles of the glial cells are similar to those we observe for brain cancer vs grade of aggressiveness.

  • Judicial Watch Sues US Government For Failing to Disclose COVID Vaccine Injury Emails


    Judicial Watch Sues US Government For Failing to Disclose COVID Vaccine Injury Emails
    Judicial Watch, the conservative legal watch group, has filed a new complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia this week
    trialsitenews.com


    Judicial Watch, the conservative legal watch group, has filed a new complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia this week against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to compel compliance with public records laws after the agency has failed to disclose government emails related to COVID vaccines’ adverse events.


    Allegation: US Government Violating FOIA

    The complaint says that on December 1, 2019, Judicial Watch submitted a Freedom of Information Act request for “all emails sent to and from members of the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee regarding adverse events, deaths and/or injuries caused by investigatory vaccines for the prevention or treatment of SARS-CoV-2 and/or COVID-19 currently produced by Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna and/or Johnson & Johnson.”


    As of March 9, the date of the complaint filing, HHS has failed to comply with the request or provide a reason why it has not produced any requested records, according to the complaint.


    “Defendant is in violation of FOIA,” reads the complaint.


    Judicial Watch is one of a number of news organizations and research groups which have complained to the courts about the slow pace of disclosure by HHS, the Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and other government bodies involved in the pandemic response.


    Previous FOIA Controversies

    Documents turned over pursuant to FOIA requests have previously revealed serious controversies about, for example, the credibility of allegations that COVID was a man-made virus that emerged from U.S.-funded, gain-of-function experiments in Wuhan, China, and other allegations that COVID vaccine-related adverse events are more prominent than publicly reported by government agencies or vaccine manufacturers have acknowledged.


    Pfizer is currently under a court order to release tens of thousands of pages of documents related to its vaccine development after the federal government initially attempted to delay disclosures for up to 75 years.

  • Just How Corrupt is Medical Research?


    Just How Corrupt is Medical Research?
    Has evidence-based medicine been corrupted by a confluence of corporate interests, regulatory capture, and academia obsessed with monetization? This
    trialsitenews.com


    Has evidence-based medicine been corrupted by a confluence of corporate interests, regulatory capture, and academia obsessed with monetization? This absolutely is the case argues a prominent academic psychiatrist from University of Adelaide and a well-known bioethicist from Cal State Northridge who argue that the fundamental underpinning of evidence-based medicine, reliable clinical trials data, falls under increasing question given the manifesting data suggesting a biased, life science industry transcending truly evidence-based endeavors all in in the name of wealth accumulation.


    Dr. Jon Jureidini, an academic child psychiatrist from Australia, and Leemon McHenry, a prominent California bioethicist, raise this uncomfortable topic in an opinion piece in the BMJ.


    But what is the basis of the authors’ claims? An underlying assumption rests in the critical rationalism embraced and furthered by the philosopher Karl Popper who according to the authors, “famously advocated for the integrity of science and its role in an open, democratic, society.” This is a science that is driven by an underlying value of integrity and dedication to unbiased investigation; one where “practitioners are careful not to cling to cherished hypotheses and take seriously the outcomes of the most stringent experiments.”


    Under fire by corporate interests that must continuously monetize all to support investor-demanded growth, medicine of course is now “dominated by a small number of very large pharmaceutical companies that compete for market share but are effectively united in their efforts to expand their market,” write the authors.


    While academia and the pharmaceutical industry (including biotech) interplay becomes ever closer, a breakthrough in medicine wouldn’t have occurred, at least, not as fast without this unfolding collaborative dynamic. These collaborations advance life-saving medicines. While “celebrated by free-market champions,” the authors point out that the growing entanglement of medical science and industry comes with severe, “unintended, long-term consequences“ for medicine. At the crux of the line-crossing problem, however, the authors argue that “industry suppresses negative trial results, fails to report adverse events and does not share raw data with the academic research community.”


    Deeper penetration of industry in research was meant to drive positive outcomes, including the accelerated development of more advanced life-saving medicines, however, Drs. Jureidini and McHenry argue that an unfortunate, oppositional reality emerges as “patients die because of the adverse impact of commercial interests on the research agenda, universities, and regulators.”


    The authors describe some of the unfolding dynamics and forces in both industry and academia that converge, leading to the intense monetization forces in the academy. This includes government, specifically regulators; as TrialSite recently shared that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is over 40% funded by industry via the PDUFA fees.


    The BMJ authors’ opinion that while regulators such as the FDA depend more and more on industry funding, at the same time these same regulators don’t gain access to much of the raw data from clinical trial. They declared, “What confidence do we have in a system in which drug companies are permitted to ‘mark their homework’ rather than having their products tested by independent experts as part of a public regulatory system?”


    What is the answer? The authors’ regimen is not sufficiently strong enough to overcome this capital contagion. They suggest that regulators must be liberated from drug company funding, but that would today all but financially decimate the FDA, for example. How about placing a tax on the pharmaceutical industry? This would trigger multinational and accompanying capital flight to locations deemed more rational. But this is what the authors propose is needed to generate the funding to set up a system where all clinical trial data—meaning all down to each anonymized patient—would be posted somewhere for experts to scrutinize ongoing.


    The pharmaceutical industry, a competitive and dynamic one, constantly globalizes while demand for their presence provokes a race for attracting these firms at the national regional, and local level.


    Industry penetrates ever deeper into basic research to ensure its leverage on any new breakthroughs. Private equity, a topic not mentioned in the BMJ opinion piece, strongly influences the development of medicine. TrialSite monitors the growing number of deals involving universities and private equity investors such as Deerfield Management, for example, which has templatized co-drug discovery and development deals with academic medical centers.


    National competition in the field of medicines development should not be overlooked. Multinational corporations dominate the global business of drug development, and China becomes an ever-stronger player in this field. That nation with its authoritarian government streamlined medical research in a bid to bolster its position in the biotech industry.


    Government agencies at the national level, such as China’s National Medical Products Administration, continue to streamline regulations making them more industry-friendly in a bid to attract pharma and biotech research while various provincial biotech clusters heap on incentives to compete for life-sciences industry prominence.


    Meanwhile, in the world’s largest pharmaceutical market–America, urban centers compete for biotech cluster prominence given the status, high paying jobs, and overall contributor to the economy, not to mention the perceived benefits to communities that coexist with thriving academic, pharmaceutical, and government collaborative initiatives. A similar pattern can be seen in Europe and places like Australia, grappling with how to progress its biotech industry.


    Furthermore, a talent crunch intensifies with industry (including academic and industry alliances) attracting the best and brightest given the higher remuneration and other perks and benefits making it more difficult to offer alternative career trajectories. Increasingly, computer science, for example, impacts drug discovery, as artificial intelligence (AI) underpins drug discovery.


    Monitoring the interplay of government and regulatory dynamics, industry, and academia as well as investors during the pandemic manifests important clues as to just how far this problem of industry-influence has advanced.

  • Can mRNA Vaccines Alter Human DNA? New Study Blows Debate Wide Open


    Can mRNA Vaccines Alter Human DNA? New Study Blows Debate Wide Open - The Stream
    The CDC scoffed at evidence that COVID vaccines can alter our DNA. Now evidence is mounting that it's true.
    stream.org


    Surprise, surprise. Will “conspiracy theorists” be proven right again? If findings are accurate in a newly published study conducted by researchers at Sweden’s Lund University, then yes. The title — “Intracellular Reverse Transcription of Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 In Vitro in Human Liver Cell Line” — is also the study’s premise. Researchers found that messenger RNA (mRNA) from Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine can enter human liver cells and then be converted into DNA. Using an in-vitro liver cell line, scientists detected “changes in gene expression of long interspersed nuclear element-1 (LINE-1), which is an endogenous reverse transcriptase.”


    So what does this mean in laymen’s terms? It means that Pfizer’s COVID vaccine, does, in fact, interact with human DNA, through a process called “reverse transcription.” DNA is “remade” or altered from RNA when this reverse transcription occurs.


    Conversely, in the normal transcription process, a portion of the DNA serves as a template to make an mRNA molecule inside the nucleus, which is then sent out into the cell to make a protein needed for normal function.


    Time will tell if the findings prove to be the truth bomb the CDC wasn’t prepared for. Just to be clear, the CDC and Swedish researchers can’t both be right.


    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention devotes an entire web page to dispelling myths and dishing out “facts” regarding COVID-19 vaccines. Deep down on the “CDC’s COVID Vaccine Myth List” (BTW, the first eight are debatable as well), Myth #9 says:


    MYTH: COVID-19 vaccines can alter my DNA.


    FACT: COVID-19 vaccines do not change or interact with your DNA in any way.


    Both messenger RNA (mRNA) and viral vector COVID-19 vaccines work by delivering instructions (genetic material) to our cells to start building protection against the virus that causes COVID-19.


    After the body produces an immune response, it discards all the vaccine ingredients just as it would discard any information that cells no longer need. This process is a part of normal body functioning.


    The genetic material delivered by mRNA vaccines never enters the nucleus of your cells, which is where your DNA is kept. [Remember that part.] Viral vector COVID-19 vaccines deliver genetic material to the cell nucleus to allow our cells to build protection against COVID-19. However, the vector virus does not have the machinery needed to integrate its genetic material into our DNA, so it cannot alter our DNA. [Remember that part, too.]


    Whether the CDC wants to deal with the diametrically opposed Swedish research findings or not, it would behoove the Center to respond immediately or risk losing its last remaining shards of credibility.


    Furthermore, the Swedish study backs up what Stephanie Seneff, a senior research scientist at MIT, predicted in May 2020. On Feb. 26, 2022, Seneff tweeted, “More surprises from the mRNA jabs. Dr. Greg Nigh and I predicted that the RNA would get converted into DNA by LINE-1 last May. Guess what? New research proves it’s happening, at least in vitro.” That’s exactly what the Swedes found:


    Conversion to DNA by LINE-1. In the nucleus of the cell. Where the CDC said the vaccine didn’t have “the machinery needed to integrate its genetic material into our DNA.”


    According to renowned cardiologist and COVID-19 thought leader Dr. Peter McCullough, “Code for spike found in the nucleus is worrisome for installation into human chromosomes.”


    If the bombshell findings from Lund University are upheld through future research, the implications are far-reaching, profound, and disconcerting. It would challenge the “safe and effective” premise upon which the entire vaccine narrative was built, while begging a response from the CDC itself. If necessary, the removal of current vaccines should be nonnegotiable considering the inherent risks to global public health and safety.


    Overnight, the vaccine’s reputation would change from pandemic-ending poster child to Big Pharma’s irreversible global experiment injected into a trusting world population.


    Understanding Reverse Transcription: A Simple Analogy

    Imagine that the DNA in the nucleus of your cells is like an accordion that expands and contracts to make various notes of music to come out of it. In the same way, “the notes” or “bars of music” coming out of your “accordion-like” DNA are the much smaller messenger mRNA being sent into the cytoplasm of the cell.


    The messenger RNA are small segments of genetic instructions of the much, much greater composition that the symphonic DNA is playing. The mRNA gives instructions for important small proteins to be assembled and sent out throughout the whole body, much as small bars and stanzas in a musical composition are the sequential instructions of which notes are to be played, in what order, and for how long. These “bars of music” are very important to the overall identity of the greater musical composition.



    In reverse transcription, the small messenger RNA is transcribed and written back into the original composition of the much larger DNA. This insertion thereby changes the genetic material if the mRNA came from an outside source. Going back to our analogy, it’s as if foreign bars and new notes of music got injected into the cell, which essentially rewrites a portion of the original masterpiece.


    If we were talking about Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, this “foreign insertion of extraneous bars of music” fundamentally changes the composition and it is no longer what it was: a masterpiece of classical music. In fact, when reversed transcribed back into the original composition, the foreign instructions — whether we are talking about bars of music or mRNA — can throw other parts out of tune, thereby ruining the symphony

    That is very bad luck, and of course SIRVA is a real risk. In fact mal-administration of the vaccine was the one thing that gave me pause, after all with a mass vaccination program one might expect some of the people doing it to be less experienced.


    Worth pointing out that SIRVA is not vaccine-specific but a risk whenever you have an intra-muscular injection, and has nothing to do with the specific material injected.
