New Solar Collector Magnifies Sun by 2000x

ibm

A team at IBM recently developed what they call a High Concentration Photo Voltaic Thermal (HCPVT) system that is capable of concentrating the power of 2,000 suns, they are even claiming to be able to concentrate energy safely up to 5,000X, that’s huge. The process of  trapping the sunlight produces water that can be used to produce filtered drinkable water, or used for other things like air conditioning etc. Scientists envision that the HCPVT system could provide sustainable energy and fresh water to communities all around the world. Each 1cmX1cm chip can convert 200-250 watts, on average, over a typical eight-hour day in a sunny region. In the HCPVT system, instead of heating a building, the 90 degree Celsius water will pass through a porous membrane distillation system where it is then vaporized and desalinated. Such a system could provide 30-40 liters of drinkable water per square meter of receiver area per day, while still generating electricity with a more than 25 percent yield or two kilowatts hours per day. A large installation would provide enough water for a small town.

The heat is absorbed into hundreds of tiny solar cells called photovoltaic chips. These gather the energy and are then cooled by microchannled water, which is why they are safely able to concentrate such large amounts of solar energy. According to Greenpeace, this technology can establish itself as the third largest player in the sustainable power generation industry. A study published in 2009 predicted that solar power could supply all the world’s energy needs, with minimal space.  Greenpeace estimates that it would take only two percent of the Sahara Desert’s land area to supply the entire planet’s electricity needs.

The world’s largest torch, a giant 25-foot tall Olympic torch replica, was unveiled in New York City by Akio Haruhara, torch designer for the Nagano 1998 Winter Olympics, and Ashrita Furman, 59-year-old health food store manager who holds 182 current Guinness World Records. Stunned by the sheer size of the lit torch, Furman said that the new record is dedicated to his teacher, peace visionary Sri Chinmoy, whose “50th anniversary of starting all our sports and cultural activities including the Peace Run we are celebrating today”. Haruhara, who flew with the original torch from Japan exclaimed, “Today is one of the happiest days of my life!” The flaming torch has a height of 20 feet (6 meter) and a base of 5 feet (1.5 meter) – a total height of 25 feet (7.5 meter). The mega torch is a 11 times bigger replica of the Olympic torch used in the 1998 Winter Olympic games to carry the flame from Athens to Nagano in Japan and weighs 1200 kg. Ashrita and a team of 20 friends constructed the torch of aluminium and steel over the last 3 weeks. Ashrita Furman is the holder of 182 current Guinness World Records, including the official record for “the most records held at the same time by an individual”. The oversized torch ensures him a new entry into the Guinness Book of World Records.

The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run was launched April 10th at the United Nations with 50 Ambassadors and diplomats and over 300 international runners. On that day, the ambassadors and runners also set a new Guinness Record for reciting a poem on peace by Sri Chinmoy in 206 languages. The  torch relay, which has involved millions of young people worldwide, was founded by Sri Chinmoy in 1987. As an athlete, philosopher, artist, musician and poet, he dedicated his life to advancing the ideals of friendship and oneness. Since its inception, the Run has visited more than 140 countries, passing the Torch and sharing a message of harmony and friendship.

Ceremony at Perth Statue of Sri Chinmoy

perth-statue-sri-chinmoyA musical offering of Sri Chinmoy’s peaceful and uplifting compositions performed by local and interstate singers and musicians was offered at the at the ‘World Peace Dreamer’ statue in the scented gardens of Sir James Mitchell Park in South Perth, Australia, on  Saturday on March 15, 2014. The statue depicts Indian born Sri Chinmoy (1931-2007) in a meditative pose and honors his efforts to foster global peace. “Peace, means a flood of love in the world family,” he said. “Sri Chinmoy was most well known as an artist, musician, spiritual master and for offering meditations at the UN headquarters in New York for over 35 years to the staff and delegates”. The performances were part of a celebration of the third anniversary of the statues inauguration and to honour Sri Chinmoy who arrived in the West from his homeland 50 years ago. The free event was attended by South Perth Mayor Sue Doherty (see picture). She said, “We are very, very lucky to have this statue here in South Perth overlooking the city,” Doherty commented. “I often come and pass by here, it is a special place”.

The bronze statue which stands 1.9m high, was sculpted by UK artist Kaivalya Torpy. There are ‘World Peace Dreamer’ statues in Malta, Czech Republic, Goa, Bali and over a dozen other locations around the world. Perth spokesperson from the Sri Chinmoy Centre in Perth, Prabuddha Nicol, who organised the event, said the statue aims to help spread the idea of Sri Chinmoy’s message of peace. “If people can come to these public gardens and reflect on the idea of peace in themselves then it can spread to the world at large”. Other free events in Australia this year celebrating Sri Chinmoy’s arrival in the West include a touring art exhibition of his original bird drawings and 50 free meditation classes to the public in various locations throughout our major cities.

Foods and herbs that help healing cancer

Kurkuma

Turmeric – Root and Powder

With 44% of men and 39% of women now being diagnosed with cancer, it has become more important than ever to understand the foods that will not only nourish your body, but also detoxify it of any cancer causing agents. Here are some of the most potent cancer destroying foods and herbs.

Sea Vegetables

Kelp, kombu, and nori are three of the more common sea vegetables with remarkable effects on cancer. They are one of the richest and most bioavailable sources of iodine, a substance lacking in the average diet that is implicated in many patients with breast and ovarian cancer. They are also rich in calcium and potassium, as well as all minerals, which assist in promoting a very alkaline environment, which makes it very difficult for existing cancer to survive.

Algae

Chlorella and spirulina are two of the most potent algae and are proven cancer fighters. Due to their incredible detoxification action (including binding to and eliminating heavy metals) and immune boosting properties (by promoting production of healthy gut flora and fighting candida overgrowth), they are a must have when healing cancer.

Cruciferous Vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage have been linked to lower cancer risks and have the ability to halt growth of cancer cells for tumors in the breast, uterine lining, lung, colon, liver, and cervix. It appears that a phytochemical called sulforaphane can stimulate enzymes that detoxify carcinogens before they damage cells, as well as indole 3-carbinol and crambene, which are also suspected of activating detoxification enzymes.

Medicinal Mushrooms

Medicinal mushrooms such as reishi and chaga have had a number of bioactive molecules, including anti-tumor agents, identified in their structure. These bioactive compounds include polysaccharides, alkaloids, tocopherols, phenolics, flavonoids, carotenoids, folates, ascorbic acid enzymes, and organic acids.Studies show that long-term consumption of reishi prevents tumor proliferation and growth by increasing the level of antioxidants in an individual’s blood plasma while boosting the immunity of those suffering from advanced stage cancer.

Aloe Vera

Research shows strong immunomodulatory and anti-tumor properties for polysaccharides in aloe vera, which means it boosts immune system function and destroys cancer tumors. A study in International Immunopharmacology showed that aloe vera polysaccharides exhibited potent macrophage activating activities including producing increased volumes of nitric oxide, which has anti-tumor potential.

Hemp

The hemp plant contains some of the most balanced and richest sources of oils on the planet, with an ideal ratio of 3:1 for omega 6 to omega 3. Hemp seed oil also contains 80% essential fatty acids, the highest of any plant. Essential fatty acids are fundamental to immune function due to their antioxidants and anti-inflammatory fatty acids, which helps oxidize the cells and restores health at a cellular level. Since cancer cannot survive in a highly oxygenated environment, the superb EFA content in hemp makes it a great option for healing cancer.

Garlic

A double blind, randomized study with over 3000 human subjects for seven clinical years showed that cancer risk was cut by 60% for those with the highest intake of allium containing vegetables, including aged garlic. The miracle nutrient appears to be the enzyme alliinase (a nutrient in the Allium genus) which produces the anti-cancer compounds. The key is to crush it and let it sit for 15 minutes in order to release these anti-cancer compounds.

Turmeric

The Life Extension Foundation has conducted extensive research into the anti-cancer properties of turmeric and found that it targets 10 causative factors involved in cancer development, including DNA damage, chronic inflammation, and disruption of cell signaling pathways. Hundreds of studies have also shown that curcumin is a potent anti-cancer food that blocks cancer development in a number of unique ways.
