With IHs motion to dismiss failing, where now for IH?

  • Filing a Motion to Dismiss, though, given the Complaint, was a no-brainer. The difficulty was that there are "facts" alleged that must be assumed true, that aren't true at all. Expect to see a motion for summary judgment after the Answer and response are filed, possibly even before discovery. I'm not sure about procedural details.



    To be simple, even assuming all that Rossi says is true, half of what he says is nonsensical complaint.
    That is the judge position.

  • LOL. Don't worry. The Jones Day firm will have a superb (and expensive) defense. It's what they do best.


    Actually, a good friend of mine who is a partner specialising in contract law in a law firm at least as big as Jones Day (probably bigger) is of the opinion that JD treat their staff abysmally, tending to pick up bright young hopefuls, pay them badly and then discard them as soon as they show signs of burnout. Their results are good, but the way achieve them is not kind.

  • I wouldn't overstate the matter.


    Congratulations on your new tactics. I look forward to more considered posts.


    Rossi has never cared about the ISCMNS community.


    Both Defkalion and Rossi always feared scrutiny by competent scientists. This is why neither ever submitted their devices to independent validation, etc.

    For years now, my effort has been to encourage genuine scientific research.


    And what have you achieved over these years? You have recently claimed here to be in a position to facilitate research. What are you actually doing? Are you actually proposing genuine scientific research or merely setting out to prove your belief in some kind of d-d fusion? Why don't you set the record straight? Or are your claims just more overstatement?

    Tell you what. I'm quite public. Someone else can write about what I have done. I'll read it and correct errors. I will say this: it's enough for my life, if what I've done is all that I ever do, it's enough. But I'm still kicking at 72. So we will see.


    Oh, okay. Yes, I'm proposing "actual scientific research." I am not a promoter of theories, and I learned to think from Feynman, at Cal Tech, 1961-1963.

    Is this the story of Cold Fusion aka Rossi v IH?

  • A thought that this forum was dedicated to LENR. The part of the case that is most directly linked to LENR survived. Is this not that what matters here, regardless of what you think will be disclosed in this respect? I look forward to IH giving their side of the story.

    (1) So how can I get involved with your 'actual scientific research'?
    (2) how much is it going to cost?
    (3) what can I expect from supporting you?
    (4) Why should I support you in preference to MFMP?

    MY: Ouch! Well, I guess even Feynman wasn't perfect.


    Nobody is perfect!
    But:
    R. P. Feyman has done a lot of scientific work that is still state of the art e.g. [QED]
    He inspired students and he had a very good explanation and view, what scientific work is really about.
    "The Feynman Lectures on Physics" are in the shelf behind me, and I've read them all twice.


    BTW: He was involved in a killing case, when he was somehow involved in defrauding Mr. Josef Papp and his "Noble Gas Plasma Engine" in 1966.
    At a demonstration, the mains plug was unplugged on suggestion of Mr. Feynman and remained unplugged until Mr. Papp went "crazy". After replugging, there was an explosion and unfortunately a man was killed. See also: hoaxes.org


    So we learn, like Rossi always states: Never ever unplug from mains, it may cause severe damage :-)


    If I would have to run/test such a "reactor", I would run it with two redundant UPS.
    Rossi's statement, that his "E-Cat" has to be controlled any time to avoid "runaway"and he is doing this with mains power is ridiculous.
    Mains power can fail any time, two UPS won't fail. (I hope "barty" will like this) :-)
    Please nobody comes up with the Fukushima desaster, that's not comparable in [kW].

  • (1) So how can I get involved with your 'actual scientific research'?

    Become familiar with the issues and demonstrate a capacity to understand what you read. You are not doing well, but you could transform this.

    whatever you can afford.

    (3) what can I expect from supporting you?

    There may be medals. Or not. How about the appreciation of the future? LENR is coming, and there will be a need for informed people. So a few will find careers. When Pierre Carbonelle was banned from cold fusion on Wikipedia, he got a job in the field. And that was about 2009. Possibilities are opening up.

    (4) Why should I support you in preference to MFMP?

    These are aligned. MFMP is a way to get involved. However, Infusion Institute is more concerned with full-on mainstream, basic scientific research, and may sometimes not be "open" for a time. III may also work to some extent with industry (possibly through LENRIA), and that may require confidentiality. III is not an investor and will not be a controller of funding, but a facilitator and advisor.
