    I respect all efforts of finding a closer version or model of reality than we currently have. I also think that Researchgate is a very active platform that kind of de facto renders obsolete peer review in its classical form, and eventually will render…

    NPP2.0 was thought to be an investigative project first. If you start to cross a border nobody can help you at first and the farther away you walk, the more difficult it is to communicate your position.

    I'm quite happy as I had a…

    Blessings Nice to see Kirkshanahan back from Seminary

    Hi Shane D. ,

    Is this lame enough?

    1. Judy July 23, 2019 at 1:12 PM Dr Rossi:
      I watched again the video on youtube of the November 24 2017 demo of the Ecat QX at the IVA of Stockholm: this too is a page of history.
      All the best,

    The gatekeepers, those who essentially decide what is 'respectable' to talk about, guard the esteemed journals. Peer view is generally still intact there. But god forbid you want to publish what is not deemed respectable in those…

    Peer review would involve 6 months gathering data, three months writing a paper, and at least a year arguing points with reviewers. For me there is no point. I have no academic career to nurture, no depagtment to answer to. I just want to do the science…

    Their background search would take them here, where they would see he is a big believer in LENR, therefore his paper must have something to do with it. That would be the end of that.

    I am not proposing an aspiring LENR theorist…

    Not sure if this is some new BEC/University of Sydney collaboration, or simply about a new young physicist giving a speech saying something supportive about LENR research? If the latter (just a speech), I am guessing it was inspired by…

    When it comes to theory, what is the point of trying to get it peer reviewed in a high impact journal? If the author claims outright that it is about LENR, it is DOA. Say he/she hides that fact and it is accepted...somewhere in the process the reviewers…

    No, not for clicks. My intent in opening this "final chapter", was to start winding down the Rossi story. Get on with the legitimate topics at hand, and distance us from him. Hard to be taken serious by outsiders, when he is…

    Just in a matter of accuracy. Rossi has an Italian master's degree in Philosophy of Science - nothing like the level of a PhD. Italians have a low standard for how they use Dott. Though the specialisation in any case suits his PR…

    Here is a bizarre video that is a mash-up of a speech at the University of Sidney about Brillouin and an old video about Brillouin.

    I find that all of Rossi's blog posts are still accessible at http://www.rossilivecat.com/all.html although it is true that the link you posted leads to a dead end.

    In any event ... not to worry, I have saved all of the blog posts from 2011…

    By definition everyone in a Mental Health Institution is crazy, but people generally refrain from walking into one and calling them crazy. :) Say what you want though. You have reached the "too big to censor" category.

    First prototype : the simplest possible reactor. This should be the least prone to a mechanical issue. Possibly the tubes should be longer, but 10 cm from the heat source might be fine in my opinion.
