Rossi-Blog Comment Discussion

  • Hi bang99, assuming you are talking about folks like him?

    Godspeed, warm regards and thank for your sustain!


    Stuff like that shows up every other day on JONP, to not forget the most important scientific paper and internet live presentation ever since sliced bread... 😆😆

      http://www.researchgate.net/publication/330601653_E-on Cat_SK_and_long_range_particle_interactions

      Here are the numbers as of today at 9.45 A.M. E.T.

      Full Readings: 21 583

      Recommendations: 738

      Index of Research Interest: 277.1

      Citations: 13

      These statistics are calculated by Researchgate directly.

      These numbers would be considered a great success for publications of main Professors of nuclear physics after a career. You got these numbers after less than 5 months.

      Unbelievable.

      Godspeed,

      Manuel

      Manuel:

      You are right, those are the numbers and I am stunned, considering the nature of the Readers of Researchgate.

      Warm Regards,

  • More Researchgate readers showing an interest in Rossi's brand of LENR can't be a bad thing - it may interest them sufficiently to study it further regardless whether they accept his ideas and research or not - most rational people would try to find evidence disproving his theories so good news for LENR I think on the whole.


  • Yes, zorud, that's what I'm asking sam12


    And now:

    What is "Full Readings" please?!

    How is that measured?!

    Can someone please explain that?

  • Quote

    How is his paper getting all those "readings"...Are there really that many people interested, or does he spend all day clicking?

    I'm not certain about ResearchGate but on many social apps including Twitter, facebook and Instagram, you can buy clicks, as many as you want, for not much money. At least two strategies are employed. One uses third world labor (often Nigerian) to actually click but the most common involves bots. The services try to circumvent these but they don't do very well so I am pretty sure ResearchGate with limited resources, is vulnerable.

  • "The bet is whether Rossi starts producing commercial E-Cats by 6/1/2019. That is the date I estimated he would. Proof will be either that the result is generally accepted at that date, or failing that, positive results are published in some journal (JONP doesn't count) or newspaper within the following three months. If not, it will be considered a failure. What Rossi says is not counted as proof. Also that the E-Cats have a COP >6 The amount of the bet is $50 from me vs. $500 from each of you.

    Time to ask @Adrian if it is yet a generally accepted fact that Rossi has started the production of commercial E-cats. - Or is Rossi just another ”babbler”? 8o

  • I'm not certain about ResearchGate but on many social apps including Twitter, facebook and Instagram, you can buy clicks, as many as you want, for not much money. [...]

    Shure, you can buy "clicks" aka "page requested from client <IP>: counts as "page visited"

    You can also buy/count "Document requested for download from client <IP>: counts as "doc downloaded"

    That's all countabe!


    But: "Full readings" is IMHO something you can't count.

    You simply can not measure, if an entity realy reads a page or a downloaded document.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    It seems that you are pursuing a commercial path that provides a service, the generation of heat and possibly electricity, without clearly demonstrating the technology behind the service. You have done demonstrations that show the effect but these are subject to criticisms.

    Can you clearly tell us why the following could or should not be done? Using one of your mature technologies, run an eCat reactor that produces enough thermal energy to heat low efficiency electrical power converters to produce electricity, conduct the electricity to a battery, invert the battery power to AC power and use the AC power to run your controller unit. Suspend this on non-conducting cables (so it is not sitting on anything and cannot be secretly powered) and power a light and let it run for some long period of time with free inspections by independent observers – look but do not disassemble/touch. Perhaps boil water with the waste (unused) heat. If it continues a sufficiently long period of time to exclude a chemical means of energy generation, you would prove the technology to the public. The scientific community would take notice but would remain skeptical until they did replications/independent testing. But business people are not scientists.

    Thank you for your opinion.

    Steven, keep on asking for it!

      Dear Steven N. Karels,

      Why should Andrea bother to prove his product?

      “The proof of the pudding is in the taste thereof.”

      If the customer likes his purchase,

      then why must he quibble about its underlying science?

      Do American electrical utility customers demand

      to understand the science of electricity?

      Iggy

  • [Quoting "Iggy":]

    If the customer likes his purchase,

    to understand the science of electricity?

    American utility customers demand extremely high levels of safety and reliability, which can only be achieved by utility companies with encyclopedic knowledge of electricity, and the generators, and the physical processes in the generators. American customers and regulators would never allow a generator that works by mysterious processes that appear to be nuclear reactions.


    So the answer is that the customers may not "demand to understand" themselves, but they do demand the utility companies understand the science. Assuming Rossi's claims are real, no one understands them, and no regulator in the First World would allow large scale use of them.

  • I am starting to think Rossi does this because he knows it gets on our nerves. Like running fingernails across chalkboard. Maybe Sam can ask him to stop?:


    1. Palomino June 2, 2019 at 7:51 AM

      Dear Andrea,

      I am a Researchgateholic, because it is a gold mine for the research in general. Your incredible numbers, after 4 months and 10 days are as of right now these:

      Full readings 22375, Research interest index 342.5, Recommendations 935 and they come from all the world, mainly universities.

      And counting.

      These are not numbers that an average professor achieves in a career lifespan, these are numbers that few professors achieve in all the world.

      This speaks loud about your recognition. Your paper http://www.researchgate.net/pu…nge_particle_interactions is one of the most interesting papers of nuclear physics published in the world in the last year. This is the fact.

      Godspeed,

      Palomino

    2. Andrea Rossi June 2, 2019 at 9:32 AM

      Palomino:

      …and you have no idea of the emails I am receiving from researchers and teachers from universities and independent laboratories og all the Continents. I am really stunned. When I sent the publication I was hoping to have at least 200 readings, to be in the average…

      Thank you for your attention to our work,

      Warm Regards,

      A.R.


  • I can hardly wait for the Researchgate investigation to be completed.

  • He still misleads about it though. Here he starts off talking about the SK (NDA), and then says "safety certifications have been made by major certification companies". A naive reader unfamiliar with his sleazy nature, would misinterpret this as meaning his SK is certified:


    Andrea Rossi


    May 30, 2019 at 8:53 AM

    Willi Meinders:



    1- more information about Clients and Partners: I am under NDA

    2- more information about safety issues: we made and published, as you surely observed, daily controls to detect emissions of ionizing radiations, but all the measurements made either by us every day or by independent specialists have never detected ionizing radiations coming out from the Ecat reactors. Safety certifications have been made by major certification companies, as you can see on http://www.leonardocorporation.com


    BTW: Willi Meinders runs the German CF forum, so he probably saw through this.


    So how would Researchgate, and Rossi not saying anymore that his SK is certified, be connected?

  • I always liken Rossi to Elastigirl - except what he stretches is the truth and often to breaking point.


    sam12 You have been here a while now and can compare Rossi's PR 12 months ago with what he is saying now, and the 100% guaranteed lack of any hard evidence.


    Are you feeling more or less confident that he is for real?


    THH

  • So how would Researchgate, and Rossi not saying anymore that his SK is certified, be connected?


    Rossi uses language in a very specific way. He applies primary process thinking, where when things are strongly associated they are the same. Thus a researchgate report implying one aspect of safety (no observed ionising radiation) and some sort of "my factory is safe" certification (easy to get - Rossi has got it before) = "the SK is safety certified".


    The beauty of this is that it is all sort of true - just very very misleading and avoiding the point. In the past Rossi has avoided regulatory inconveniences like permits for dumping waste and I fully expect that he really does not care about compliance with regulations as long as he can get away with it. Since he does not actually do very much, and what he does is shrouded in secrecy, I imagine he finds that quite easy.
