Where We Stand in the Cosmic Energy Continuum



Where We Stand in the Cosmic Energy Continuum

This is an excerpt from Cosmic Journeys "Cold Sparks & Black Holes." It's the start of a journey through the incredible continuum of cosmic energy that produced us.

Today, energy is very much on our minds, as we search for ways to power our civilization and serve the needs of our citizens.

But what is energy? Where does it come from? And where do we stand within the great power streams that shape time and space?

Energy comes from a Greek word for activity or working. In physics, it is simply the property or the state of anything in our universe that allows it to do work. Whether it is thermal, kinetic, electro-magnetic, chemical, or gravitational.

The 19th century German scientist Hermann von Helmholtz found that all forms of energy are equivalent, that one form can be transformed into any other. The laws of physics say that in a closed system - such as our universe - energy is conserved. It may be converted, concentrated, or dissipated, but it is never lost.

James Prescott Joule built an apparatus that demonstrated this principle. It had a weight that descended into water and caused a paddle to rotate. He showed that the gravitational energy lost by the weight is equivalent to heat gained by the water from friction with the paddle.

That led to one of several basic energy yardsticks, called a joule. Its the amount needed to lift an apple weighing 100 grams one meter against the pull of Earth's gravity.

In case you were wondering, it takes about one hundred joules to send a tweet, so tweeted a tech from Twitter.

The metabolism of an average sized person, going about their day, generates about 100 joules a second, or 100 watts, the equivalent of a 100-watt light bulb. In vigorous exercise, the power output of the body goes up by a factor of ten, one order of magnitude, to around a thousand joules per second, or a thousand watts.

In a series of leaps, by additional factors of ten, we can explore the full energy spectrum of the universe. So far, the coldest place observed in nature is the Boomerang Nebula. Here, a dying star ejected its outer layers into space at 600,000 kilometers per hour.

As the expanding clouds of gas became more diffuse, they cooled so dramatically that their molecules fell to just one degree above Absolute Zero, one degree above the total absence of heat. That is around a billion trillionths of a joule, give or take.

That makes the signal sent by the Galileo spacecraft, as it flew around Jupiter, seem positively hot. By the time it reached Earth, its radio signal was down to 10 billion billionths of a watt. Now jump all the way to 150 billionths of a watt.

That is the amount of power entering the human eye from a pair of 50-watt car headlamps a kilometer away. Moving up a full seven powers of ten, moonlight striking a human face adds up to three hundred thousandths of a watt. That is roughly equivalent to a crickets chirp. From there, it's a mere five powers of ten to the low wattage world of everyday human technologies.

Put ten 100-watt bulbs together. At 1000 joules per second, 1000 watts, that roughly equals the energy of sunlight striking a square meter of Earth's surface at noon on a clear day. Gather 200 bulbs. 20,000 watts is the energy output of an automobile. A diesel locomotive: 5 million watts. An advanced jet fighter: 75 million watts. An aircraft carrier: almost two hundred million watts.

The most powerful human technologies today function in the range of a billion to 10 billion watts, including large hydro-electric or nuclear power plants. At the upper end of human technologies, was the awesome first stage of a Saturn V rocket. In five separate engines, it consumed 15 tons of fuel per second to generate 190 billion watts of power. How much power can humanity marshal? And how much do we need?

DIY Mosquito Control - Pesticide Free



DIY MOSQUITO CONTROL pesticide FREE mosquito control Solar Powered Fan West Nile Virus

Using a Maxx Air Flow fan 24", the Orange one from The Home Depot $99 (EXCELLENT FANS) You can clean an area in a few nights breaking an uncontrolled population cycle. This option requires 250 watts of electricity but does not require any pesticides. The screens serve a dual purpose, they also collect dust and fine particulates and eventually form a mat of air junk. The screen provides an easy cleaning option and prevents dire from entering the bearings of the induction motor. The solar option uses a 27 watt blower fan and works great for pigeon and chicken coops, animal kennels and outdoor porches.

Place the fans near infested or high traffic areas. KEEP FANS DRY, no rain. Always Unplug when servicing screens or moving. Place the inlet side towards people or animals so you suck the mosquitoes away. This also sucks in carbon dioxide creating an attraction trail for the mosquitoes to follow sticking them to the back of the fan.

Of course nothing beats bats. ;)

Subsiding Geomagnetic Storm


A geomagnetic storm that sparked auroras around the Arctic Circle and sent Northern Lights spilling over the Canadian border into the United States on April 12th is subsiding. At the height of the display, Shawn Malone took this picture from the shores of Lake Superior near Marquette, Michigan.

"I coaxed myself out of bed around 4am and was rewarded by a lightshow!" says Malone. "The auroras had no problem shining through the light pollution. I think the sun IS waking up. I watched the Northern Lights until the sunlight wiped them out."

NOAA forecasters estimate a 25% chance of more geomagnetic activity during the next 24 hours. -- Space Weather

Government Shutdown To Close IRS: Sorry, No Tax Refunds


In order to make the biggest strawman so far in 2011 really scary and nasty, the administration just announced that as part of a government shut down, the IRS would end up being closed. While according to some this is the ulterior motive all along to avoid the premature outflow of tens of billions in cash due to federal tax refunds hitting the IRS next week, which without a debt ceiling hike would push the country into technical default possibly as soon as next week (debt subject to the limit was $14.2 trillion two days ago, just $94 billion under the ceiling and with about $74 billion in debt to be issued next week a $20 billion tax refund withdrawal would push the Treasury over the limit), what is far more amusing is that as the WSJ reminds us, the Fed would still be able to monetize debt regardless if the government was operating or not. Ergo nothing can end POMO ahead of time, not even a complete US government shutdown.

  • *DJ Obama Admin: EPA Permitting Would Stop If Budget Not Passed
  • *DJ Obama Admin: Social Security Beneficiaries Would Continue To Receive Payments
  • *DJ Obama Admin: Electronic Tax Refunds, Collections Would Continue
  • *DJ Obama Admin: Military, Law Enforcement Will Continue To Function
  • *DJ Obama Admin: Military Personnel Would Earn Paychecks, But Not Receive Them Immediately
  • *DJ Obama Admin: White House Staffing Would Be Lower During Shutdown
  • *ZH: POMO will continue come rain or snow: Russell 36,000 will not be denied, US bankruptcy notwithstanding

The importance of fitness in a survival situation




Short video demonstrating the importance of physical fitness in a survival situation. It's great to think that "adrenaline will get me through" but realistically if your not physically fit all "adrenaline" will do for you is speed up your heart attack.

While you may never have to run from Zombies, you may have to run. The drill showed in this video is NOT designed to be uber tacticool, show proper use of cover, etc. It is simply a drill to induce stress during training, show the need for good physical fitness, breathing control and how different shooting platforms may or may not be useful when winded. Filmed at a private OTG class in 2010.

4/5/2011 -- Radiation and Jet Stream forecast UPDATE - Cesium-137, Xenon-133, and Iodine-131





The levels are "mid" and "low" range at surface, 2500m, and 5000m ... for gasses NOT detectable by radiation detectors.

here are the links.. you decide for yourself.


Surface levels and high level clouds of Cesium 137, Iodine 131, and Xenon 133, have reached the United States .. showing up in 13 different states rain water according to MSM reports..


Now the debate becomes "how much is bad".. .the answer.. there are NO GOOD AMOUNTS of Cesium, iodine-131, or Xenon - 133


Here is a list of the radioactive particles in the air.

Shining like a work of art
Hanging on a wall of stars
Are you what I think you are?

You're riding with me tonight
Passenger side, lighting the sky
Always the first star that I find
You're my satellite

Elevator to the moon
Whistling our favorite tune
Trying to get a closer view

You're my satellite
You're riding with me tonight
Passenger side, lighting the sky
Always the first star that I find
You're my satellite

Maybe you will always be
Just a little out of reach

You're my satellite
