FB is insidious (darth insidious even)
1> start a new browser profile (copy bookmarks across but not FB or Inst..)
2> BLOCK all cookies from FB and associated companies
3> block using "No Script"™ or similar the FB & Inst... web sites
4> block using "Ghostery"™ or similar the FB & Inst... web sites
5> for extreme paranoia set FB address to 127.0.0.1 (not recommended)
There are many points about the paper, which are awkward.
1 - Unusual journal for radio astronomy, (significant issues with the authenticity of the journal and its referees)
2 - Use of units of signal strength from comms not radio astronomy
3 - No mention of location, background contamination data no supplied/measured
4 - Heavy use of person resume
5 - Minimal calibration data
6 - Insufficient data to reproduce the comet data
7 - et alia
One or two of these can be overlooked if the others are present, but not all of them. Go read the reddit post for a full description of the short comings of this paper.
So 10 million trillion trillion joules = 1*10^31 J (a joule is tiny but 10^31 of them is not) and for a more "leReg" style unit, a kilo of hydrocarbon fuel is c40MJ, so this is 2.5*10^23 kilos of fuel or as Avogargo's number is the same order of magnitude, this is 0.4 (Avogargo's number) * (kilos of hydrocarbon fuel[such as petrol]).
The EM-Drive uses a ridiculous amount of power for a result that is still not proved as statistical noise is bigger than the effect.
For an EM-Drive to balance against gravity on Earth at sea-level (in vacuum if you insist) a small coin (such as 5p or 10c) it takes the power output of a medium national grid connected Nuclear Power Station.
So Schrödinger and others suggest that a real result of force is yet to be achieved.
This seems to be a very benign OH&S induction.
On one work site it required 2 half day sessions one in the PM and the other the following morning.
The questions on the test did not have obvious answers and some of the building contractors were failing on the first test and doing it again.
The plant was not operational, so the other 3 half day sessions were not required, on starting operation it would be back to the beginning and do all 5 sessions.
OH&S induction needed to be completed and signed off before access to the work place was allowed. I have heard there was one site with an 8 session induction.
Eyesight has its limits and it is expressed as 152 400 (divided by) pixels per inch and gives the distance in millimetres, beyond which the individual pixels are discernible by young eyes (make the number 101 600 for old eyes).
So anyone sitting more than 700mm from this screen will have a "retinal" display and most of their field of view taken with this display.
a suggestion would be an arm cuff around the bicep which could hold the mobile phone and by the skin contact give a little power to the phone.
A phone battery hold (1500 mAh at 5V) about 25 kJ of energy.
This tat gives 70 microWatts per cm2, now a bicep wrap could give 300 * 100 mm2 or 300 tats and thus 21 mW (that is milliwatts).
So 25kJ means that at 21mW a full charge takes 357 hours.
system would need some more work (in both meanings).
great, but have a look at the technology used in a recycling plant. Throws an object into the air, shoots an IR beam at the polymer object, collects a spectrum, determines which polymer it is, and then uses an air gun to blow it into the right bin, whilst the the object is falling back to a high speed conveyer.
