To start on a lighter note, check out the two minute DC edition of Game of Thrones called  District of Thrones

It's a nonverbal tour de force of the Washington Post's view of our government. Since our readers know that I was a witness at the 2013 Citizens' Hearing at the National Press Club, you will be happy to learn that event was the impetus for Senator McCain's office and Congressman Cook to facilitate full medical disability for another witness and US military veteran,John Burroughs, who was injured during exposure to prolonged UAP (unidentified aerial phenomenon) radiation. This is a first for our country and his book is worth reading


Now that  2014 has been recognized as   the hottest year on record, the Washington Post published an article about 

climate deniers in retreat, and Pope Francis had a 

Global Warming Summit, the need for accelerated development of clean fuel-free energy and propulsion is paramount. That is where our institute stands out above the usual renewable lobby. You are invited to experience the 

cutting edge scientists at COFE7  who are helping to define new energy for public appreciation which is the only hope for a discontinuous jump in technology. See Story #1 for the great lineup of our speakers for the Seventh International Conference on Future Energy (COFE7) and an announcement of my latest journal publication.


Story #2 gives us hope for the spacefaring younger generation, thousands of whom want to go into space and go to Mars. The new Dream Chaser spacecraft will usher in a new era of shuttle service to near earth orbit with help from NASA. Video included.


Story #3 is an exciting breakthrough using energy (future energy is here folks) to put out fires. A low rumbling sonic frequency extinguishes flames in seconds, thanks to engineering majors at George Mason University. Video included.


Story #4 tells us that electric vehicles (EVs) are here to stay and getting more affordable. Only ten years ago, IRI featured the movie, "Who Killed the Electric Car?" and star of the movie, Chelsea Sexton, at COFE2 and now the rebound is tremendous. Since it is getting to be cheaper to charge a 300-mile EV (about $10) than fill an equivalent car with gas, thinktanks are predicting a "potential paradigm shift in vehicle technology" with Tesla driving electric car innovation.


Story #5 leads us into the more esoteric energy realm with the hunt for dark matter and its cousin, dark energy, said to make up the majority of matter and energy in the universe. Of course, more physicists are recognizing the link to vacuum energy and its surface interface, zero point energy, as the most likely candidate for the dark mystery of a "one force controlling everything." Harvard University agrees that zero point vacuum energy is the most likely candidate for dark matter and dark energy. Come to COFE7 to learn more!

Biophotons, Noble Gas Engine, Zero Point Energy, Tesla's Wireless Power Assessment, and Boeing's Control Moment Gyro Propulsion 

Press Release, for immediate release, Thomas Valone, Integrity Research Institute, April 29, 2015 for more information,  301-220-0440




With the mission of researching scientific integrity in the emerging areas of clean energy, fuelless propulsion and bioenergetics, Integrity Research Institute presents a stellar lineup of world experts on the investigations of these emerging scientific fields vital to human sustainability. IRI has presented a half dozen International  Conferences on Future Energy (COFE) in the past 16 years, including  the first one (COFE1) . Every COFE event  has been a cutting edge experience, often a media frenzy, and more revolutionary and practical than TED conferences. This year COFE7 will be held at the Albuquerque Embassy Suites Hotel from  with very reasonable hotel rates for registered conference attendees!          




IRI is proud to bring the amazing adjunct professor of engineering, Dr. Nick Simos from Brookhaven National Labs to give a convincing critical assessment of Nikola Tesla's "Worldwide Wireless Energy System" that has often baffled and confused all of the world's electrical engineering experts, as compared to the comfortable, familiar, umbilical cord we call the "electrical utility grid" which normally loses 2/3 of its generated energy* upon delivery and ALL of it during any major storm. (See all COFE7 speakers abstracts and biographies online).


Another spectacular first is Mike Gambles' dual presentations on various perspectives of inertial propulsion which to the uninitiated is the future of satellite and space travel propulsion, as compared to "solar sails" and other wimpy alternatives. Mike will explain the basic fundamentals of the gyroscopic origins of the science of producing unidirectional force electrically and then astound the audience with a separate talk just for the COFE7 audience on the inside scoop of Boeing's actual research into the "control moment gyro propulsionengineering" or how to use gyros to keep satellites in orbit for years! 

Complimenting that presentation is the "anti-gravity" inertial propulsion technology of the Nazi Bell (die Glocke) experiment by William Alek which, from the extensive original articles of the WWII period which he has posted online, proves that the Nazis were also actively pursuing "gyroscopic propulsion."**


Much anticipated is the well-researched and investigative report on the mysterious Papp Noble Gas Engine by Ryan Wood, just before he competes in the IronMan 2015 Boulder Triathlon Series on August 2, 2015 (yes ladies, he is a hunk). Dr. Tom Valone will also review his investigative research into the V-Track Spiral Magnetic Motor in the evening of July 29, 2015, which is a motor that has great potential for brief pulsed energy harvesting and driven through 90% of its cycle by permanent magnets. Dr. Thorsten Ludwig from Berlin, Germany will also be reviewing his ongoing research into a single electron spin experiment.


Dr. Bev Rubik from the Institute for Frontier Science will be presenting two slideshows with Harry Jabs on self-organization in aqueous colloids and membrane interfaces as well as a separate talk on biophoton emission from humans and other organisms with a discussion of what it reveals.  


There will also be several COFE7 presentations in Albuquerque NM that relate to vacuum energy, which also includes zero point energy.  The Reid Cell from Germany which is described as a stand-alone "vacuum energy electron pump" will be demonstrated by Rolland Gregg. Herbert Renner from Austria will be presenting several water and wellness devices for his company, "New Solution for You". Dr John Milewski will be exploring the magnetic properties of zero point energy while Carlos Henriques from Portugal will be showing his colorful, detailed analysis of zero-point Casimir cavity atomic energy shifts which he investigated for his Master's degree in 2014. Robert DeBiase will also be analyzing forces on asymmetric Casimir plates to reveal anomalous forces which are proven to be physically real.


Lastly, an interesting presentation which fills out the COFE spectrum of diversity includes how inventors can get millions as well as free publicity by Robert Smith.  This special event has one more surprise that makes it even more attractive: it is also concurrent with the ExtraOrdinary Technology Conference in the same hotel during the same week! Discount, half-price admission rates are applicable for COFE7 registered guests who also wish to attend both conferences.

Electrogravitics and electrokinetics can be traced to T. Townsend Brown's first article "How I Control Gravity" (Science and Invention, 1929) with the unexplained alignment of the "molecular gravitors". Brown reported that the dielectrics had high propulsive force when the "differently charged elements" were aligned with the voltage source. Perhaps electrogravitics was also revealed in the article "Gravity Nullified: Quartz Crystals Charged by High Frequency Currents Lose Their Weight" which appeared two years earlier in the same magazine in September of 1927. The editors had a change of heart however, in the following issue, they rescinded the article. Much of what we know about T. T. Brown is from his numerous patents and articles, reprinted in Electrogravitics Systems Volume I, by this author who was fortunate to correspond with him in 1981 when he was at the University of Florida. A sample of his detailed correspondence is contained in the out-of-print book, Ether-Technology: A Rational Approach to Gravity-Control by Rho Sigma (1977) and in the recent Defying Gravity: The Parallel Universe of T. Townsend Brown, Paul Schatzkin, (2009, Embassy Books). Also, a five-minute Brown-Bahnson Lab video online shows many of the experimental models that Brown developed toward 1960 with colleague Agnew Bahnson

2) DreamChaser Private Space Plane Can Land in Houston One Day

By Elizabeth Howell, April 2015



A privately built spacecraft shaped like a space shuttle could land at a conventional airport, said its builder, the Sierra Nevada Corporation.




The Dream Chaser spacecraft - which is expected to continue flight tests later this year - would use Ellington Airport's Spaceport in Houston as a landing site for at least the uncrewed version of the craft. The agreement is subject to Ellington receiving approval for use as a spaceport, officials added.


"Entering into this new agreement with HAS [Houston Airport System] will lead to enabling all variants of the Dream Chaser spacecraft to land in Houston, offering the ability to return cargo and science to Houston directly from space," Mark Sirangelo, corporate vice president of Sierra Nevada Corporation's space systems,said in a statement.


Sierra Nevada has been seriously contemplating using airports for Dream Chaser's landings since at least November, when it presented a study on the topic at the Space Traffic Management Conference at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

At the time, Sierra Nevada said it was reviewing "the applicable standards and unique requirements that must be addressed" before such a landing could take place. It's possible to place the spacecraft in an airport environment, because it doesn't require any unique navigation or landing aids and its propellants aren't toxic, Sierra Nevada said at the time.


Dream Chaser was originally intended to ferry astronauts to and from the International Space Station, and the company received millions of dollars from NASA in competitive commercial crew agreements to  the development. But in 2014, NASA chose not to include Sierra Nevada in the last round of development funds. The space agency instead opted to continue funding plans from SpaceX and Boeing to bring astronauts to the station.


Sierra Nevada then launched a government complaint alleging favoritism in the process. The Government Accountability  turned down the protest in January, saying "the proposals submitted by Boeing and SpaceX represented the best value to the government."


So far, Dream Chaser has undergone several "captive carry" tests under an aircraft and a single glide test in 2013, when the prototype skidded off the runway due to a gear problem. The company plans to re-pitch Dream Chaser to NASA as a robotic spacecraft that could deliver cargo to the space station, and is expected to perform another glide test later in 2015,according to a recent Space News report.

3) Fighting Fires with Sound Frequencies

By Tom Jackman,  Washington Post, April 2, 2015




It happens so quickly you almost don't believe it: Seth Robertson and Viet Tran ignite a fire, snap on their low-rumbling bass frequency generator and extinguish the flames in seconds. And even after you've seen it over and over, it's still unbelievable.


But the two senior engineering majors at George Mason University appear to have invented and built a way to use sound waves to put out fires. It started as an idea for a senior research project, and after a year of trial and error and spending about $600 of their own money, they have built a somewhat portable sound generator, amplifier, power source and focusing tube that would seem to have great potential in attacking fires in a variety of situations.


Robertson, 23, and Tran, 28, applied for a provisional patent at the end of November, which gives them a year to do further testing on other flammable chemicals - so far they have put out only fires started with rubbing alcohol - and to continue to refine their device. Although they originally conceived of the device as a way to put out kitchen fires and, perhaps, fires in spacecraft, a local fire department already has asked them to test their bass waves on a structure fire; they think the concept could replace the toxic and messy chemicals involved in fire extinguishers.


Engineering Students Extinguish A Blaze By Simply Using Sound Waves

Engineering Students Extinguish A Blaze By Simply Using Sound Waves


Robertson of Newport News, Va., and Tran of Arlington, Va., are electrical and computer engineering majors, and the idea for their senior project came about only because they didn't like the ideas that their professors had proposed. They had seen research on how sound waves could disrupt flames, "but there's nothing on the market that works," Robertson said. "So we thought we could be the ones to make it happen. And that's the inspiration for the project."


As with all great scientific inspiration, there were plenty of naysayers, the pair said. They are electrical engineers, not chemical, and were told, "You guys don't know what you're talking about," Tran said. A number of faculty members declined to serve as advisers on the project, but professor Brian Mark agreed to oversee it and not fail them if the whole thing flopped, Tran said.


But how does it work? The basic concept, Tran said, is that sound waves are also "pressure waves, and they displace some of the oxygen" as they travel through the air. Oxygen, we all recall from high school chemistry, fuels fire. At a certain frequency, the sound waves "separate the oxygen [in the fire] from the fuel. The pressure wave is going back and forth, and that agitates where the air is. That specific space is enough to keep the fire from reigniting."


So the trial-and-error began. They placed flaming rubbing alcohol next to a large subwoofer and found that it wasn't necessarily all about that bass, musically speaking, at least. "Music isn't really good," Robertson said, "because it doesn't stay consistent."


They tried ultra-high frequencies, such as 20,000 or 30,000 hertz, and could see the flames vibrating but not going out. They took it down low, and at the range of 30 to 60 hertz, the fires began to extinguish.

"I honestly didn't think it would work as well as it did," Tran said.


But the goal was to create something portable and affordable like a fire extinguisher that would generate the sound wave at the correct frequency, which they were able to do with the help of an oscilloscope that measured the waves.


They connected their frequency generator to a small amplifier and linked the amplifier to a small electric power source. These are hooked up to a collimator that they made out of a large cardboard tube with a hole at the end, which narrows the sound waves to a smaller area.


And it worked.


"My initial impression was that it wouldn't work," Mark, their adviser, said. "Some students take the safe path, but Viet and Seth took the higher-risk option."


Both are set to graduate in May. Robertson has been working at the Defense Department and has been offered a job with the Air Force. Tran has interned at a Dulles, Va.-area aerospace firm with a promise of a job after graduation.


Although the students originally envisioned their device as a tool to attack kitchen fires and to eliminate the toxic monoammonium phosphate used in commercial fire extinguishers, they can see more uses: in confined areas in space, or wide areas outdoors, such as forest fires. Not having to use water or foam would be a bonus in many situations.


"We still want to do a lot more testing," Tran said, "to see if we need to change the frequency [to extinguish] other" materials, before plunking down thousands of dollars to apply for a patent.


In 2012, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency conducted a project on "acoustic suppression of flame" and found that it worked on small levels but could not determine if it would work at "the levels required for defense applications," the agency said.


Kenneth E. Isman, a clinical professor in the University of Maryland's fire-protection engineering department, said that the question of scale is important. "It's one thing to put out a tiny fire in a pan," Isman said. "But how much power would you need to deal with a couch or bed on fire, which is a common scenario in deadly fires?"


The project also would have to address different types of fires - solid combustibles such as wood, paper or metals, or electrical equipment - and keep a fire from reigniting.


"One of the problems with sound waves is that they do not cool the fuel," Isman said. "So even if you get the fire out, it will rekindle if you don't either take away the fuel or cool it."

By Mike Orcutt,  MIT Technology Review


A new study suggests that battery-powered vehicles are close to being cost-effective for most people. 



Electric cars may seem like a niche product that only wealthy people can afford, but a new analysis suggests that they may be close to competing with or even beating gas cars on cost.


The true cost of lithium-ion batteries in electric cars is a secret closely held by manufacturers. And estimates of the cost vary widely, making it tough to determine just how much lower they must go before electric vehicles with long ranges can be affordable for most buyers. But a peer-reviewed study of more than 80 estimates reported between 2007 and 2014 determined that the costs of battery packs are "much lower" than widely assumed by energy-policy analysts.


The authors of the new study concluded that the battery packs used by market-leading EV manufacturers like Tesla and Nissan cost as little as $300 per kilowatt-hour of energy in 2014. That's lower than the most optimistic published projections for 2015, and even below the average published projection for 2020. The authors found that batteries appear on track to reach $230 per kilowatt-hour by 2018.


If that's true, it would push EVs across a meaningful threshold. Depending on the price of gas, the sticker price of an EV is expected to appeal to many more people if its battery costs between $125 and $300 per kilowatt-hour. Because the battery makes up perhaps a quarter to a half of the cost of the car, a substantially cheaper battery would make the vehicle itself significantly cheaper too. Alternatively, carmakers could maintain current EV prices but offer vehicles with much longer ranges.


The range would likely be crucial for many buyers because it's so much cheaper to "fill" an EV with electricity-charging a car with a 300-mile range could cost less than $10. Given the disparity in gasoline and electricity prices, the study's authors, Bjӧrn Nykvist and Måns Nilsson, research fellows at the Stockholm Environment Institute, say that if batteries fall as low as $150 per kilowatt-hour, this could lead to "a potential paradigm shift in vehicle technology."


The analysis suggests that the cost of packs used by the leading EV manufacturers is falling about 8 percent a year. Although Nykvist acknowledges that "the uncertainties are large," he says it's realistic to think that this rate of decline could continue in the coming years, thanks to the economies of scale that would be created if large manufacturers like Nissan and Tesla follow through with their separate plans to massively increase production. The speed at which the cost appears to be falling is similar to the rate that was seen with the nickel metal hydride battery technology used in hybrids like the Toyota Prius, he says.


Nykvist and Nilsson relied on estimates from a variety of sources: public statements by EV manufacturers, peer-reviewed literature, news reports (including from MIT Technology Review), and so-called gray literature, or research papers published by governments, businesses, and academics.


Luis Munuera, an energy analyst for the International Energy Agency, and Pierpaolo Cazzola, a transport policy analyst for the same agency, caution in an e-mail to MIT Technology Review that the cost reductions implied in the new analysis "should be taken with care," since battery cost figures from disparate sources are often not directly comparable. Further, they point out, the degree to which cost decline trends for energy technologies can be extrapolated into the future is unclear. Still, they admit, "we have seen events moving quicker than expected in lithium-ion battery technology."

5) Dark Matter: What Physicists are Looking For Now that they Found the Higgs Boson

By BloombergBusiness, April 2, 2015




The world's most epic physics experiment will flip back on as early as Saturday. After a two-year tuneup, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will run at twice the power it needed in 2012 to find the Higgs boson, the long-theorized particle that confers mass onto matter.


As monumental as the Higgs discovery was - its theorists won the Nobel Prize in Physics

  the next year - physicists still have very little idea what's going on in the universe, beyond the stuff we can see, touch, and smell. A big question concerns "dark matter," what scientists call the stuff that makes up 80 percent of galaxies but that doesn't interact with light, atoms, and molecules. They know it's there, but it's hiding from us.


With the Higgs in hand, finding traces of dark matter is the next big hunt in high-energy physics.


The Standard Model of physics is what scientists consider their working picture of how fundamental particles behave and interact. But it "has some holes in it," says Verena Martinez Outschoorn, an assistant professor of physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. "We know that our worldview, our model, our understanding of particles and their interactions is kind of a subset of a bigger picture," she says. "We have reason to believe there are other particles out there."  


If there's one rule in the universe that's unbreakable, it's the law of conservation of energy: Energy cannot be created or destroyed. So when physicists add up the energy of all the particles that come out of a collision, they must total the known energy level of the experiment. If it doesn't add up, that may indicate that some energy was siphoned away in the generation of dark matter particles. And by definition, those can't be detected by us.


It's not an insane way to find new particles. This process is essentially how scientists found the neutrino, a fundamental particle that's shot out of radioactive elements and passes right through us all the time. "This sounds like kind of a funny way of doing a measurement, by saying what's not there," says Jesse Thaler, an assistant professor of physics at MIT. "But actually, historically, we've been quite successful in this."


For April Fools' Day, CERN published a faux press release claiming that researchers confirmed the existence of "the Force," the all-powerful field linking living things in theStar Wars universe. Closer to the truth may be Force skeptic Han Solo, who says in the original Star Wars:

I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe that there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything.

Physicists have four forces they can account for: gravity, the weak and strong nuclear forces, and electromagnetism. Plus, there's the basket of stuff they don't understand, such as dark matter and dark energy. Minimalists might prefer that they find, if there's one waiting to be found, an even simpler understanding of the universe, one that reconciles the four fundamental forces and the dark stuff. For scientific accounting - Han Solo be damned - it just might be neater and easier to have one all-powerful force controlling everything.
