    A quick note to express my appreciation and admiration. Your example in conducting science is quite extraordinary, both in technical aptitude and mannerism! There are several here that should learn by your fine example!

    While somewhat disappointing…

    No, nothing at all like that.

    It is impossible for Wien’s Law to be used without a blackbody or greybody. It simply does not work with a few scattered spectral peaks. That’s just a fact. It does not matter what the source of light is.

    What is the official advice of the Japanese health authorities? Gloves and mask?

    I'm sure you will be well protected by your countermeasures. But why did you stop at gloves and mask? Wouldn't the full…

    Well JedRothwell and seven_of_twenty have certainly made a compelling case for wearing masks and gloves to avoid becoming infected by the novel coronavirus. And I concur! Wearing a mask and gloves while you are out and about is better than doing…

    According to filing #296 on the court docket (available through a search beginning on this page: https://www2.miami-dadeclerk.com/ocs/Search.aspx), Rossi's wife, Maddalena Pascucci, has been offered for deposition in his stead. …

    Possibly right. I see what you mean about the tenses. But Rossi says that he and his team have been surmounting difficulties, crossing new barriers. inventing things and so on all since the beginning of December. I guess his…

    1. Drew G. March 9, 2020 at 8:47 PM Dr. Rossi:
      Two questions:
      1. Will you use a commercial delivery service to transport the ECAT SKL to Europe for testing or will you personally deliver it?
      2. Will you be present during the tests?

    What medical incident did Rossi suffer prior to Feb 24 this year (as described in one of these court documents)?

    Rossi is in Italy right now and he has apparently been there since early November (as judged by the time stamps on his blog posts). He goes…

    It is a matter of practice. I know this from personal experience. Some molecular biological techniques require such discipline to prevent contamination of DNA samples by so-called endonuclease proteins found in the skin. …

    "No mask" is part of my plan for protection against infection. I don't see how wearing a mask produces any meaningful extra protection in that regard.

    With regard to transmission while asymptomatic -- you may or may not be right, I…

    The second document currently showing on the court docket for this case ("Motion to Compel", filed Feb 24 2020), outlines the plaintiff's attempts to depose Rossi as the corporate representative of Leonardo Corp. They say that Rossi is in Italy and…

    OK. But I think that your plan and my plan (no mask, no gloves, frequent hand washing, hand-face discipline, avoid coughers and sneezers) will produce about the same amount of protection.

    I think you are right. My suggestions were for when you also want to limit transfer of virus from one location to another and if you want to keep your car a virus-free zone.

    I like the hand-washing-with-gloves-on idea. It allows…

    It depends on how much you intend to be out and about, but you don't need 1 extra pair, you need 20-30 extra pairs every day. I just went and gassed up the car, that is one pair, I did a little shopping, that is another pair, I…

    I didn't think them cogent. Unless you are willing to switch to a new pair of gloves after you end your shopping -- after you do anything really -- you are just carrying the virus around on you gloves and contaminating the next…

    I don't see the need for gloves. Gloves are used in most hospital settings (and in food services) not to prevent the wearer from being infected but to stop the wearer from transmitting infection to others. Even if you wear…
  • I agree with THH - if they have known about the excess energy effect for some time, that they need to apply 7% of the input power once the reaction is started to achieve maximum output, that would suggest an energy out/energy in of over 10. If this was…

    My cell is designed with two thermocouples, mounted at 0 and 90 degrees angle on the circumference to give some indication of the radial heat distribution. My comment referred to the linearity between these two thermocouples over…

    All 3 calibrations show nonlinear behaviour don't they? ... to more or less the same extent?
