1-Political language... is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. (George Orwell)

2- He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past. (George Orwell)

3- The very concept of objective truth is fading out of the world. Lies will pass into history. (George Orwell)

4- If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. (George Orwell)

5- War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength. George Orwell

6- But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought. 
 (George Orwell)

7- Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”(George Orwell)

8- Big Brother is Watching You. (George Orwell)  


I really hate contributing to the popularity of the IH propagandists. Actually they lack both effectiveness and efficiency, they are more annoying than dangerous. Some people still takes them seriously so I will write about them- avoiding adjectives as much as possible because I will not descend to their level. The problem is that they are trying to play Big Brother. to my dislike.

I know too well their methods, mode of thinking, mentality because I have lived  many years in an Orwellian society. I have read '1984' and lived it.

First please (re)read my classic:
You must do the impossible if the Boss says it! You must believe the impossible is it is in the favor of our boss!

An other Orwellian story I lived was 
see please about my communist kangaroo court and the instructive story of the florentine vessel

One unforgettable meeting with a communist Party activist; we started to manufacture plasticizers for PVC- they are made by esterification of an organic biacid (actually used phtalic anhydride) with increasingly heavy (more C atoms) alcohols. The most important alcohol, C8- 2-ethyl-hexyl was then very expensive
and the Party activist has instructed us to reduce the specific consume- you must do it use less with 25% each year! You (me, the technologist) will be responsible, have you understood tovarishch engineer?
I told him calmly that this is fine just impossible, it is about a chemical reaction
that follows the laws of Nature!
He got simply mad and has explained shouting and with a vocabulary that would make even my opponents of today to blush. that the decisions, directives of the Party have priority over everything- stupid laws of Nature, burzhui chemistry, perverse logic, coward thinking- so I should shut up and do my duty, otherwise... allusions to the my "class enemy" character and past. (my parents were not poor)

With amazement and an easy taste of horror I observe the same oppressive thinking at the propagandists of IH in the Rossi vs. Darden conflict- in the frame of an Internet campaign aiming to help the legal issue. No, I am a not exaggerating a bit; Jed snd Abd's fans should be listen carefully to what I will tell.

Please keep the 7 Mottoes- Orwell quotes in mind.

The most recent discussion can be found here:

To take it shortly I had a dispute with Jed Rothwell re three main proofs of IH for their scenario of the Test- no het, scam, conspiracy, evil Rossi etc.

The first dispute now in the stage of total madness is about the flowmeter.
Jed has told officially he has seen the schematics of the Plant. Therefore I have asked him:

_ Where was the flowmeter in the diagram of the Plant?  Answer

I told you already! Time after time I told you. You never listen. It is in liquid water, which means it has to be between the condenser and the reservoir. Where else could it be?
You don't need me to tell you this. You could have figured it out yourself, from the flow meter specifications. That meter will not work in steam. So if there really is steam between the reactor and condenser (repeat) 

OK, this is orwellian elimination of logic and blatant illiteracy in matter of (chemicaL) engineering. The flowmeter CAN NOT BE THERE  and was not
a) becaus e it does not work in that place, the flowmeter with moving parts needs a minimum of 3 barr pressure, or a column of 30 meters height to work. This is the reason for which it is where it is, between the pump and the ECats; 

b) It has absolutely no reason to be where Jed said it was,- suppose it measures the flow of warm water returning from the customer to the reservoir, but in the same time water from that reservoir is sent by the pump to be converted in steam, so the measured flow is not relevant- but also not measurable with this type of instrument.

I have Jed to send me the diagram  with the flowmeter in that absurd place:
The answer was:

You would not believe it even if I sent you the diagram. You would say I drew the diagram myself, and it did not come from Rossi. You will believe what you want to believe, no matter what I say. You will believe whatever Rossi tells you, no matter how impossible it may be.

Cheap trick but he surely has no authentic diagram- but he can perfectly anticioate what I will do! The same newspeak as with the ERV Report he received from Rossi by error but a strict NDA obliges him to hide the document - any half brained could see it shows no excess energy (but IH has not seen it), A cobweb of fantasies- lies can have creative value but these fuzzy things no.

Jed also tells about the warehouse having no ventilation. Why not? Any normal warehouse has ventilating but this one was made to prove no energy there? 
The photos of the JM space are not taken from inside and not the complete roof can be seen so it cannot say if it was or was not ventilation. It is no proof.

Jed is surprisingly misinformed- in many respects, has no idea about the JM space and energy consuming method activity but as a good Orwellian character all his wishes and guesses and imaginations are certainties. The director of JM, Jim Bass was a ghost now it is real but Jed knows better. He changes the past and creates new realities.

Enough for today but I will continue- I bet Jed and later Abd will not like  and will deny being orwellian oppressors.

The coupling between electrons and phonons determines how efficiently solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. It also plays key roles in superconductors that transfer electricity without losses, topological insulators that conduct electricity only on their surfaces, materials that drastically change their electrical resistance when exposed to a magnetic field, and more.

Therefore mainly by repetition you can learn the high art of nagging even tormenting people with lowly lies. (ask Joseph Goebbels)


Some quite interesting news till now and more coming (not all good) so I decided to not discuss today here with my overly repetitive opponents, obviously after a (two) small nice chats at the LENR Forum now dominated by them. The Mottoes are dedicated to them. They want to make me unhappy, I am making them happy, I have a good heart.

So dear friendser and let's focus together on the promise of MFMP's Bob Greenyer (2) and on the tricky CF killer paper by Ethan Siegel.(6)

Only the abstract!
The road towards polaritonic devices                                                                                      

  • Daniele Sanvitto
  • Stéphane Kéna-Cohen

  • Polaritons are quasiparticles that form in semiconductors when an elementary excitation such as an exciton or a phonon interacts sufficiently strongly with light. In particular, exciton–polaritons have attracted tremendous attention for their unique properties, spanning from an ability to undergo ultra-efficient four-wave mixing to superfluidity in the condensed state. These quasiparticles possess strong intrinsic nonlinearities, while keeping most characteristics of the underlying photons. Here we review the most important features of exciton–polaritons in microcavities, with a particular emphasis on the emerging technological applications, the use of new materials for room-temperature operation, and the possibility of exploiting polaritons for quantum computation and simulation.

    For me, strategy comprises no compromises with Evil...

    Writing the history of LENR....


    The essence about the 1MW/1year Plant

    The Romanian proverb :"Unde dai si unde crapa" tells actually about when hitting a wood with an axe in a place it splits in an other place.  English equivalents could be "Barking at the wrong tree" or ' Bringing a knife to a gunfight" - anyway all speak about something unexpectedly inadequate. This has happened to me with my editorial of yesterday about the remarkable shoddiness of the 27 Exhibits of IH-
    their unfitness for use, lack of order, unprofessional character, disorganisations, bantam-weightness as proofs in the Trial.
    As a rather rational human being, I have expected natural reaction from the IH supporters- a wave of indignation and systematic campaign of contradicting me, fair and documented demonstration of the high virtues of those Exhibits- showing that I am in deep error, unable to appreciate value and effectiveness.
    But surprise... instead this , I got a lot of information about my own person, not all very positive as I am:
    - not humble or kind, (I told that I am not humble);
    - a pain in the butt and was so for the last 21 years
    - egotistical, and a damned ingrate.
    - a disgrace to engineering.
    - displaying classic dysfunctional responses
    - my world was turned up by the truly devastating (which?) evidence - probably against excess heat in the E-Cats,
    I also have completely ruined my reputation at CMNS (but I still can hope to regain
    a part if if joining the Good Party and moving from the Rossi Planet.)  
    Suddenly I have understood that my next job application is in great peril! No decent company will hire me, alas!

    Except an increasingly pathological support for the myth of half full pipes , nothing relevant and GOOD about the Exhibits.

    These people say Rossi is lying. It is put too simple- if Rossi is lying., then necessarily there was a truth and Rossi says something different. But we need to know the truth- the essence of the 1MW1year experience.
    I hope that for this analysis we could agree that 
    a) the Plant was real,
    b)  the Plant has worked or successfully mimicked working (no complains were recorded except messages  to my opponent);
    c) the basic document of the action- the ERV Report is not known outside the Parties
    d) Only the Rossi Leonardo party knows how the produced energy was consumed, the Darden - Industrial Heat Party denies that any excess energy was ever produced in the Plant
    e) the analysis must be logically consistent i.e. what has happened in the Plant must match what has happened at the Customer- in harmony
    The story of Rossi-Leonardo was told starting Feb 2015 to Feb 2016
    The NEW story of Darden-Industrial Heat was told starting with the start of the trial and is a retro story discovering the past,

     Rossi Leonardo  Corp. says;
    1MW was produced in the plant for 352 days, COP>50, parameters in the ERV Report
    and consumed by the Customer by methods to be revealed in time to the Court not in the Forumosphere. Excess heat , massive yes, technical and maintenance problems yes- but solved in time. Task accomplished, contract respected, payment denied by IH and Co.- ergo trial started.

    What do you, IH supporters say? What has happened during the 352 of the Test.
    When and how it was revealed  what happened?  Please try to be logically consistent and if you contradict the story of above, give proofs, not suppositions. OK? 
    Try to think as Homo faber, not as Homo blah-blahensis!


    1) Catalytic mechanism of LENR in quasicrystals based on localized anharmonic vibrations and phasons

     Quasicrystals (QCs) are a novel form of matter, which are neither crystalline nor amorphous. Among many surprising properties of QCs is their high catalytic activity. We propose a mechanism explaining this peculiarity based on unusual dynamics of atoms at special sites in QCs, namely, localized anharmonic vibrations (LAVs) and phasons. In the former case, one deals with a large amplitude (~ fractions of an angstrom) time-periodic oscillations of a small group of atoms around their stable positions in the lattice, known also as discrete breathers, which can be excited in regular crystals as well as in QCs. On the other hand, phasons are a specific property of QCs, which are represented by very large amplitude (~angstrom) oscillations of atoms between two quasi-stable positions determined by the geometry of a QC. Large amplitude atomic motion in LAVs and phasons results in time-periodic driving of adjacent potential wells occupied by hydrogen ions (protons or deuterons) in case of hydrogenated QCs. This driving may result in the increase of amplitude and energy of zero-point vibrations (ZPV). Based on that, we demonstrate a drastic increase of the D-D or D-H fusion rate with increasing number of modulation periods evaluated in the framework of Schwinger model, which takes into account suppression of the Coulomb barrier due to lattice vibrations. In this context, we present numerical solution of Schrodinger equation for a particle in a non-stationary double well potential, which is driven time-periodically imitating the action of a LAV or phason. We show that the rate of tunneling of the particle through the potential barrier separating the wells is enhanced drastically by the driving, and it increases strongly with increasing amplitude of the driving. These results support the concept of nuclear catalysis in QCs that can take place at special sites provided by their inherent topology. Experimental verification of this hypothesis can open the new ways towards engineering of nuclear active environment based on the QC catalytic properties.

    Dear Andrea,

    1 – Are the micro-cavities produced during the baking and processing of your fuel visible with an optical microscope or is a SEM required?

    2 – Will the baking process that produces micro-cavities on the surface of nickel powder produce the same or similar features on the surface of a nickel wire?

    3 – Have you detected the presence of alpha particles (or helium atoms after losing their kinetic energy) inside or being emitted from a Quark?

    4 – What is the most unexpected event you have ever observed or detected while monitoring an active Quark?

    5 – Will you ever show us a zoomed in image of a micro-cavity or “reaction site” in a future paper written by yourself or with another author (such as Dr. Cook)?

    6 – Do you feel that hydrogen/lithium is the most optimum fuel for an LERN system in terms of MeV released per reaction and lack of harmful or ionizing emissions?

    7 – Have you allowed any third party scientist, not an employee of Leonardo Corporation, to observe a test of a Quark?

    8 – Are there any complexities in the construction of a Quark that would inhibit automated manufacturing of the device?

    9 – Are you satisfied with the heat resistant materials you are utilizing in the Quark, or are you searching for better materials?

    Thank you.

    Image result for shoddy quotes

    a) Answering to accusations, accusing Exhibits of shoddiness 

    My Editorial of yesterday has got some attention here:
    Rossi vs IH: (Update: Sep. 9 20– James A. Bass now a Third Party in IH’s Counter Complaint)

    and it was not treated well in my opinion; therefore I am answering. Not answering on the Forum where my answer would be sabotaged- opponents attack in packs one of them using tsunamis of wording- so there to the usual Forum illness, Dilutitis it will be added a dosis of deadly Drownitis.  This is my Blog made to let me say what I want, in proper circumstances. The Forum is organized for lynching.

    First about me- who I am, how I am and what I think and why is not misunderstood, it is intentionally misinterpreted by my opponents. Some of them-  to be polite do not excel in fairness.
    It was said  am "totally confused". No, I have a very clear, well formed opinion that differs from what they want to impose upon everybody. Why no "in error". "not well informed" "not intelligent enough to understand the situation?" Because confused, totally confused is more offending and works for them. Choose the worst variant- the most aggressive!
    Why should I be confused  I can remark simply - what the opponents do not like, cannot accept and will deny up to the end: actually IH has NO real proofs against Leonardo Corp., the 27 Exhibits are nothing else than a bunch of totally (I borrowed the word) irrelevant documents and fabrications. See what Abd says about Exhibit 5 which was thought and presented by Jed as a mortal weapon. (Jed says here a new enormity about the closed circuit) Now Abd tries a clumsy diplomacy- this shows only Penon's lack of communication. Is this manipulation. explaining away,  honest? And why for Jed's sake does IH not make public the ERV Report if it is such a hyper-strong proof of the lack of excess energy? I tell you why -because it is NOT. 

    It was discussed, in psrt quite nicely if I am a "humble and kind" man or st least i was prior to this Rossi vs. Darden affair. I do not spire to humbleness I consider it a pseudo-virtue but functionally I am indeed polite and kind. Just I answer to offenses.

    To understand better my position- as I told here many times- in the first years of apprenticeship of my career I have discovered QUALITY- it were the books ppaers and sayings of Deming, Juran, Crosby- the formative books of Pirsig and Hofstadter
    the drams of Henri de Montherlant that have helped me to join the cult of quality; I had the luck and privilege to work for/with a product with a very complex quality- suspension poly-vinylchloride. Not humbleness but professional and human dignity is the measure of some body's quality. Dignity and love of honest, creative work.
    Therefore I will never(not a long time in my case) forgive Jed for what he has said about cheating with flowmeters- and I responsibly declare that I am not obsessed in anyway. But I have my form of sacredness. I love order, discipline, smart taxonomies
    I do not make any damned bizarre assumptions- but I see the execrable, lousy quality of the 27 Exhibits. I don't need Rossi or any else for this- Rossi actually does not comments them. What was bizarre - the reactions, behavior, modus operandi of IH- the worst timing  conceivable.

    Why the Exhibits are such a shoddy work, a bunch of scientific papers, fragments of 
    from Rossi's blog, etc., etc. Which of these gentleman is the best, most convincing, the star? I had a re-revelation with Exhibit 18- it is about the money JM paid to IH for energy- some days for 1MW other days 0.75 MW. OK, any good accountant would present here the global situation for 12 month in chronological order, IH throws in the invoices for
    JULY 1, 2015
    AUG 1, 2015,
    OCT 12, 2015,
    SEP 8, 3015
    JAN 4, 2016

    What is the logic? Payment made only for these months? Is there some proofs that actually all payments were made for zero energy? Conspiracy? Shoddy formally shoddy in content- and typical.

    To Shane D. - thanks for your kindness but I cannot associate myself with Colonel Nicholson- I am not a prisoner- not of the Rossi Planet, but fortunately not of the IH Planet where these infra-shoddy Exhibits are venerated.
    I bet the usual suspects will compose odes for them now.

    We report on three projects in the energy field. Two of them share another feature, large systems of FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) are deployed to achieve the required performance. The first example is a 3D acoustic wave control system with 800 sensors and actuators with integrated real-time partial differential equation solvers that are executed using 400 FPGAs. Such a system is used to study geophysical phenomena. We also report on how very large power grid simulations can be conducted by an FPGA-centric architecture similar to the former one. In particular, real-time transient computations at rates of 1 MHz using many FPGSs are possible. These very fast simulations can be connected to slower (but still real-time) simulations of extensive bus-systems. We will briefly discuss an application in the field of LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reaction).

    (Gapingvoid Today)

    I was and still I am a relatively happy individual because I had initiative(s), 
    I liked to work and especially because I have discovered how to like what I must do. And I am speaking not only about dish washing. Writing this blog is an example- it is actually a means of survival the infinite and impossible task of the retired researcher. To mention that this is posting No. 1159 (the first was on Dec 10 2010) and before that I have written 437 weekly editions of the web search newsletter INFO KAPPA- for  a salary by the way.
    Obviously the Rossi vs, Darden Trial is not a desirable or happy long-time action
    and it could have been simply avoided by the early interruption of the 1MW-1year Test- if the case..
    But now it is here, and the LENR people see it differently - the polarization is extreme
    My opinion s well known- it has and will confirm the validity of the Rossi Technology.
    Other people think it will show the technology is invalid, nada excess heat and it is  a scam. The unpleasant thing is that some people are very intolerant toward those with opposite opinions and succeed to hate them. I am peaceful actually but I answer to insults, as creatively I can. (Just now I read on  LENR Forum "Peter Gluck
    who is totally confused- this because I wrote that the Exhibits of IH in the Trial are 
    catastrophically weak and unconvincing and I have not told my opinion about their deplorable taxonomy- order, lack of it,  but I will)
    Ok, but back to the main idea. Early morning I have received Item 50 at Pacermonitor of the Miami Court from Uwe  Doms. (paper 1a) very long now with 27 Exhibits not less than 271 pages...But suddenly I had a revelation- this trial is part of LENR, is determinant for the future of LENR. It is TRIAL a great one...and suddenly I renumbered good unforgettable movies about Trials Movies memorable for giant actors-i will tell only about three:
    12 Angry Men (Henry Fonda), Inherit the Wind (the monkey trial) (Spencer Tracy, Fredrick March) and To kill a Mockingbird (Gregory Peck). Couldn't be the Miami Trial now evolving toward the phase of interrogatories, huge paperwork, presentations, witnesses, then in June 2017 the decisive phase of the Court with he Jury will start and the verdict will be due in some 6 months- a historic trial?. 
    The movie, due to the 2030-ies could be entitled: "To Kill a Technology"- the actors are at the kindergarten now.
    I decided to to take this Trial seriously, to think and speak in legalese- the trial is reality and it will be interesting.

    In the appropriate place in the report to accompany H.R. 4909 insert the following new Directive Report Language:
     Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) Briefing 
    The committee is aware of recent positive developments in developing low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR), which produce ultra-clean, low-cost renewable energy that have strong national security implications. For example, according to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), if LENR works it will be a "disruptive technology that could revolutionize energy production and storage." The committee is also aware of the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency's (DARPA) findings that other countries including China and India are moving forward with LENR programs of their own and that Japan has actually created its own investment fund to promote such technology. DIA has also assessed that Japan and Italy are leaders in the field and that Russia, China, Israel, and India are now devoting significant resources to LENR development. To better understand the national security implications of these developments, the committee directs the Secretary of Defense to provide a briefing on the military utility of recent U.S. industrial base LENR advancements to the House Armed Services Committee by September 22, 2016. This briefing should examine the current state of research in the US, how that compares to work being done internationally, and an assessment of the type of military applications where this technology could potentially be useful.

    Sept 22 is after tomorrow!

    High temperature nanoplasmonics

    Metallic nanostructures can be utilized as heat nano-sources which can find application in different areas such as photocatalysis, nanochemistry or sensor devices. Here we show how the optical response of plasmonic structures is affected by the increase of temperature. In particular we apply a temperature dependent dielectric function model to different nanoparticles finding that the optical responses are strongly dependent on shape and aspect-ratio. The idea is that when metallic structures interact with an electromagnetic field they heat up due to Joule effect. The corresponding temperature increase modifies the optical response of the particle and thus the heating process. The key finding is that, depending on the structures geometry, absorption efficiency can either increase or decrease with temperature. Since absorption relates to thermal energy dissipation and thus to temperature increase, the mechanism leads to positive or negative loops. Consequently, not only an error would be made by neglecting temperature but it would be not even possible to know, a priori, if the error is towards higher or lower values. © (2016) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
