Please put down your weapon, You have 20 seconds to comply.....
Naaa, there is still new technologies coming up
stack of graphene and silicene techno-wizardry combine with nanotubes coduits and "on the chip" dynamic (fast moving fluids) heat transfer solution is my bet for the future.
we still are at infancy on term of internal heat transfer solution that is at the end of the day the main physical limitation.
after reading and re-reading the given paper....
Basically those guys think because USA has a ESTIMATE increase of "ALTERNATIVE" oil production of about 300k barrel/day this year, and there is some shabby production increase on not so impressive overall wells production (North Dakota i'm looking at you), the PARABOLIC INCREASE on global oil demand can be fed and and prices therefore sustained.
The paper, issued by a financial conglomerate, is designed to attack investor, not as scientific paper. It is full of "hard" data (real information) mix with "soft" data ( estimations) floating on a sea of wish-thinking speculation and hype. As a scientific paper lacks of structured, rigour and a clear separation between FACTS, ANALYSIS and CONCLUSIONS.
They maybe right, but there is nothing in the paper to corroborate that.
Battle of Hastings 1066
Did the opposite that the Left predicted... instead of been a new force of colonialism, it is a inverse colonialism... where the west is the one getting economically drained and its inequality levels between poor and rich start to go toward something not far from a banana republic state of matters.
"Post-industrialism" it is a flop, not a positive and favourable evolution.

I feel cheated, this is not an article, it's an ad!!!
" No, we’re not /really/ talking about perpetual motion here. "
perpetual motion requires an efficiency => 1 , you can "break" theoretically Carnot law for Heat Engines without breaking the Thermodynamic Law that disallows you to construct a perpetual motion machine...
my comment points that the shown mechanism is (from a abstract point) a heat engine and, with the given information, no even a lower tier law that is specific for heat engines is broken...
that does not count with the clumsy mismatch of dislike physical parameters, like Voltage and Energy, a type of misinformation only perceptible for people that already know about the subject and easily can confuse other people's understanding.
Where is the law breaking part?
I see 1 hot source, 1 cold sink and some POTENTIAL energy production.... unless the work done it is more efficient than the efficiency described by
efficiency=1-(Temperature cold sink in Kelvin/Temperature hot source in Kelvin)
Carnot can continue resting happily on the collective conscience imaginary afterword commonly called heaven.
As a mono-atomic element, helium has one of the lowest infra-red absorption capacity. it can be consider one of the most transparent substance for the infra red spectrum.
The right to use you own legal name
can be overthrown by a court???
"Imperial wankers" is a good example of tautology....
The plan of merging operation of The Sun and NotW was already rolling even before this week outcry, nothing is lost there but the toxic brand. The implementation of the future "Sunday Sun" is highly possible.
The incredible thing is that Rebekah B. still under full protection from Murdoch....
heat sinks on the dark side of the moon.
A solution, currently use already as cold end of thermal nuclear interstellar devises, is to have a nice big heat-sink on the shadow side of the craft.
A shielded from the sun area of inter-planetary space is really cold indeed ( nights on the moon get about -180 Celsius degrees ).
Of course, the wasted heat energy damped will only scape by radiative meanings, due the lack of air, but still it will work.
the court day will be a show trial, justice will be looking to the other side when the sentence is pronounced. Pathetic show of a declining society.
truly pathetic works of bullies.
The reason why we don't speak French
it is the same one that why we don't speak German:
The Russian winter.
what really piss me off
it's that they are taking those measures and calling criminal to wikileaks, without a court order/sentence, just because some primate politicians have some opinions.
basically no court order are need to you be economically killed, only the will of the big companies to bend to the MAN.
can you not see the subtle difference between state organizations and his members and your/mine friends and family?
is call POWER.
simpleton patriots like you always forget that those who seek power and hold power can have hidden(not as in conspiracy theories but more like untold clearly on public) agendas only share by small elite collective.
US is right now a two-head oligarchy, not far from Russian and Chinese one head oligarchy, only your constitutional rights makes the real difference.
that is the real danger for USA, every time for grandstanding or for fear-mongering, your constitutional right are reduce, USA is less the land of Freedom. Each year i can see more and more Americans willing to sacrifice those rights and less caring about to export those right to others nation people.
the tidal locking of the voting system has make your voting right already a mockery of what should be; only public perception has a limited power to drive politicians toward the general interest. that is the last bastion of democratic power in USA and only through deep perception the public will know what is happening behind the propaganda smokescreen and force them (because you don't really decide who is in power, you only chose between the already chosen, their natural will is to favor the elite) to do good.
you don't need wikileaks if you already are willing to give up your right for freedom and peace,
many already has unconsciously done that already.
The smell of bullshit
sorry but you know that by law Spaniards pay a tax money for any digital recording/storage system EVEN if you don't going use it for illegal downloads?
and that money going to the Spanish Ass.?
and after all you still can be prosecute for file-sharing?
there is not the facto freetard in Spain. every hard drive or blank CD/DVD bough has already paid something to the Ass.
"Pilots were warned that they would have to fly even with faulty ejection seats in the event of any hostile incursion into UK airspace, but fortunately this did not occur."
yes, fortunately not because heath and safety of the pilots, more because hostile incursion on those term will be something more serious like a 9/11 type-event or a starting WW III.
btw, how good was the ejecting system of those spitfire?
Do they hire hitmen?
when the justice path is to tedious?
The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.
The target destruction can be achieve by:
the kinetic effect produce by the plasma formed at the immediate impact surface. ("plasma punch")
structural damage produce on impact. ("case slicing/drilling")
generating an ultra heat section that force the missile fuel to burst. ("melting")
wavelength is only relevant counter measure for that wavelength. most high powered laser can fry any opaque surface.
to same energy output , shorter pulse increase the plasma punch effect and facilitated the heat concentration.
multi-layered mirrors Vs highly reflecting simple coating
the energy absorption ratio between a military grade multi layered mirror and a high reflective simple coating is magnitude of order. (for the specific wavelength of the laser). Basically you can have a mirror system that can handle the ray but still fry a simple coated missile.
50+ miles of air on a large part of the spectrum suppose little more than a few percents of loss, mostly due to scattering.
The idea is to generate a short pulse that will make meaningless any cooling system.
Still your simple coating make necessary to increase the energy output ~X100 in order to cause same damage to your coated missile compare to a standard one.
if you thinking in add a multi layered mirror to the armour of your missile, you need to be sure that your enemy only use a specific wavelength for his laser toys and known well this magic number. (multi-layered mirror are build for a specific wavelength)
it will be interesting to know how many times they got some money from this scum-bag technique.
any info about older cases?
obvious troll is obvious.
RE: Atlantic Chart Trumpeter
1. No territorial gains were to be sought by the United States or the United Kingdom.
- No need for territorial gains if you acquire enough land space for your Army bases, and keep control of the economic resources by your "international" enterprises.
2. Territorial adjustments must be in accord with the wishes of the peoples concerned.
- Only if the wishes of the people are expressed by the sector of the native elite that has been bought by us.
3. All peoples had a right to self-determination.
- But self determination claims it will be supported only if the outcome fragmentation benefit our quest for any of the points above.
4. Trade barriers were to be lowered.
- Multinationals loves low trade barriers and it is good if my average middle class family with annual income in the tens of thousands of dollar/pounds economically compete without barriers with 2nd and 3rd world families with annual income 10 to 100 lower.
5. There was to be global economic cooperation and advancement of social welfare.
- just read this :
6. Freedom from want and fear.
- that is call Buddhism and is nothing like our new dogmas: Consumerism and Sensationalist Media.
7. Freedom of the seas.
- yeah, we don't like Pirates(the real ones TM) and most of high value resources in high seas required a hefty inversion that only multinationals are able to obtain.
8. Disarmament of aggressor nations, postwar common disarmament.
- Said the country with the military budget bigger than the rest of the nations combined and involve in more overseas wars that any other nation during the post WWII period.
Yes we don't need old school colonialism when Neocolonialism do the trick even better.
Fake 3D is the problem
i was very upset about Alice in Wanderland. the 3d effect was just a cutting paste work instead of a real 3D recording. i didn't see avatar but 15 years ago i watched a proper 3D film in Futuroscope (Poitiers ,France). i remember how its blow my mind the scene of a restaurant set in the 20's, no especial effects, just the recording with a real 3D camera.
basically any film that is a rework of 2D images passed to 3D is pure FAIL!
For god sake
if the Soviet Union did not denounce the 'fakery' of the moonlanding, when they were the most eager to proof that the landing was fake, then there is not conspiracy to talk about.
The moon-landing was an USA PR campaign again the Soviets.
The Soviet with 3 bloody radio telescope can pinpoint (basic telemetry) if the transmissions were from a localization at the lunar surface( and for sure they did check and recheck).
The soviet didn't deny the Apollo success.
either the moon landing happened or the whole world is rule by a single group entity that staged the Cold War.Do you believe that?
/pointing at tinfoil hatter
just move to a point twice the distance from the emitter and you will be as safe as before.
ah, and tinfoil does not work well unless you wrap your whole body. if you try this please send us the pictures.
"One view is that up to now people have used P2P because they know they’re not being watched, and 12 months of monitoring may be enough to change that. Another view is that they may not care that they’re being watched, and are willing to take their chances."
Another view is that if they are watched,with just a few goggles, forum reads and downloads, you can create a smokescreen so thick that make you invisible again , and easy to share with others the tricks in a few minutes.
"The video, which has been confirmed as authentic by senior military officials, may or may not be proof of the Pentagon cover-up and misconduct alleged by Wikileaks. After all, war is messy business, and a grainy video shot by a single helicopter can't be expected to tell the entire story."
messy business? and shooting unarmed people picking up wounded ones is a messy business too?
i just so a nerd F@@ker playing his ultra realistic shoot them up with god mode and knowing that his arse is cover from any kind of retaliation. he is clearly having fun.
wow, arrogance of first kind no less!!!
Let see Nelson, how many real naval battles did you fight? 0? 1? 5?
in how many years?How many naval battles did your buddies fight?
what business? pork barrels? playing with the biggest sea toys?
Lewis can be wrong in many things, but your paternalistic arrogance is pure FAIL..
they are snobs nurtured in cotton beds.
"The recruiters also want an end to caps on tuition fees, but this should happen in stages and safeguards put in place for disadvantaged students. Parents and students should be encouraged to save for a university education"
first they bitched about mickeys degree ( i agree with most of their critics) and then that little gem appears out of no where.
actually degrees should be as hard as F''k and free of charge if you are targeting to transform them in undeniable proof of knowledge and skill and nothing else.
no, these (rich?)guys want to reduce the number of people with bad\"poor" degrees but at same time have the premium buy option for their sons and daughters.
Now to kill a light armed soldier from an irregular militia you need to hack him with a guided high tech missile. Are those wep producers corporations good selling freezers to Eskimos too?
