Climate Change To Accelerate At Pace Not Noticed in 1, 000 Years

All of the musicians are doing MASH_UPS these days, so I did a mash_up with the climate.
There might be climate change, and some of the effects are going to look just like the movie ” THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW “. Shifting weather patterns will be the norm for a long time to come, and if we continue to burn fossil fuels, the climate may never get back to what it was.

We do have the capability to utilize SOLAR, WIND, and TIDAL energy sources, and that can help some. Cars, factories, volcanoes and many other sources of carbon dioxide emissions will continue this current trend We have gone past, just turning off the lights we aren’t using. We need to be more energy-efficient and conservative with everything we do.

Climate Change To Accelerate At Pace Not Noticed in 1, 000 Years

Climate Change To Accelerate At Pace Not Seen In 1,000 Years – Climate change is accelerating at a rate not seen in 1,000 years, according to new findings. By the year 2020, global temperatures could be rising by nearly half a degree per decade, over twice the rate seen over the last 900 years, climatologists warn.

Over two dozen climate models were examined, with data arranged in 40-year cycles. This is roughly the length of time houses and roads tend to exist, before being replaced. Human activity is releasing vast quantities of carbon into the atmosphere, leading to climate change, including global warming, researchers warn.

Although the long-term effects of carbon on the environment can be simulated in computer models, short-term variations in weather make short-term predictions difficult. A base rate of global heating was determined for the period of 1850 to 1930, when human emissions of atmospheric carbon were much lower than in later decades.

Tree rings, ice cores and corals were examined, in order to create a record over global temperatures, stretching over the last 2,000 years. Investigators found that temperatures rarely rose more than 0.18 degrees Fahrenheit each decade, prior to the start of the 20th Century.

The climate is changing, sorry deniers but it’s true. A major happening is a large piece of a glacier in Antarctica has moved off of the shelf it was sitting on. The super cold freezes sea water, making fresh water ice, and allows the heavier salts to return to the bottom of the ocean. The iceberg that fell off of that shelf is the size of Rhode Island, and that will cause problems with the deep-sea currents.

The other problem is, a large lake under the ice sheets in Greenland has let go, dumping millions of gallons of cold fresh water into the northern end of the same deep ocean current. The two events happening at nearly the same time, has slowed down the Mid Atlantic Current.

That current carries the colder water to the tropics, and brings the heated waters north to the arctic.  With a slowdown in this current the climate will continue to show vast changes in weather patterns, we have not seen in present times.

Here is an info-graphic showing some of the major weather events just in the last year.

How To: Do Things You Didn’t Know You Could

Finding out how to do anything useful is always great. It’s not like having to learn stuff in school, and you come to find out, everything you spent all of that time learning, is only useful playing Trivial Persuit! So much for getting straight A’s on your report cards, but at least when you play Trivial Persuit, you’re a winner every time.

Did you know your body emits electrical energy? Of course you did, because you did get straight A’s in school. Yes, but did you know you could you use your own body to charge your phone? Pretty cool huh? Here are a few How To videos, to help you out in a pinch, or if you want to amaze your friends at parties.

The other breakthrough associated with Ultra-Ever Dry is the superior coating adherence and abrasion resistance allowing it to be used in all kinds of applications!

Anti-Wetting

The superhydrophobic coating keeps objects dry, water and many other liquids simply repel off.
Anti-Icing

The superhydrophobic properties of Ultra-Ever dry keeps coated materials completely dry, eliminating the formation of ice.
Anti-Corrosion

Maximum corrosion protection since the superhydrophobic coating ensures water and moisture never actually contact the base material.
Anti-Contamination

Dust, dirt, water and other liquids that contain bacteria or radiation never actually contact the surface of the coated material so bacteria and radiation is greatly diminished or eliminated and easy to decontaminate to sterile, if needed.
Self-Cleaning

The Ultra-Ever Dry repels dirty water and thick oils, and remains clean and virtually bacteria-free. When dust, dirt or other molecules accumulate on a superhyrophobic coated surface, a light spray of water or a blast of air grabs the dust and removes it.

DIY solar tiller
© Dennis Evers
Instead of adding a lot of noise and pollution to your backyard garden with a gas-powered tiller, build a DIY solar-powered version that’s clean and quiet.

One of the surest signs of spring is the Saturday morning roar of two-stroke gas engines coming from lawns, gardens, and backyards, as people start to till their gardens, cut their grass, and trim the weeds. The lightweight small gas engines that power rototillers, lawnmowers, and weedeaters are handy, as they can drastically cut the time needed for yard maintenance, but they also come at a price, both financially and environmentally.

Many of these small internal combustion engines used for yardwork can release as much as 30% of the fuel/oil mixture as unburned pollutants into the atmosphere due to incomplete combustion, which not only wastes fuel and money, but also contributes to air pollution.

“USEPA estimates that a gasoline powered lawn mower emits 11 times the air pollution of a new car for each hour of operation.” – EPA

Solar energy is a great clean power solution for some of these small garden tasks, but there really aren’t a whole lot of options for solar-powered home yard machines available just yet. However, just as the solar lawnmower project demonstrates, building a DIY solar tiller could be an option for the green and clean homeowner, as one resourceful tinkerer illustrates below.

Dennis “Bones” Evers, a Colorado prepper, converted a conventional garden tiller into a completely solar-powered version, using only scrounged parts and taking about 6 hours to complete:

I asked Evers about some of the details of his solar tiller, because the video doesn’t give the specs on the components he used, to which he replied, “This is one of the easier, yet more rewarding projects I have done,” along with some more info on the build:

“It [the solar panel] is a 5 Watt panel, and I use a simple blocking diode (one way) instead of a solar controller. The batteries are two [12V] 5 Ah computer backup batteries that provide enough power to till several beds. I could easily add two more batteries, but as it is it is very easy to use and transport. I salvaged 120 batteries that were perfect and was looking for projects to use them up. One is a four battery micro welder that works fantastic for field repairs.

The motor is a Briggs and Stratton lawn mower starter. I just got in from my garden and it works fantastic. I just leave it out in the garden facing south and use it when I need it. If a person wanted a bigger one, you could easily upgrade with a larger starter from a Ford or Chevy and a full size battery.”

Evers documents his DIY projects at Proficient Prepping, so if you’re looking for some pointers or ideas about building your own home and garden gear, including solar hot water and solar electric systems, or emergency preparedness, head over there and dive in.

Malware! Your Computer Is Infected!

If you suddenly have a bunch of pop-ups, pages opening up, even though you never hit any link, and warnings about your computer being infected, it is.
Don’t call the numbers provided by the message! Those are scammer numbers to sell you free stuff, and they want to get into your computer, so they can leave they’re own bugs in it.

If you have malware go to http://www.malwarebytes.org/antimalware/ , and get their free download. Follow the directions all of the way through. Now before you delete all of the things that program found, highlight what it is, and copy the names of the malware onto a notepad, or wordpad document, and go to Google/ search and see where that takes you.

I recommend you go to http://malwaretips.com/blogs/malware-removal-guide-for-windows/
and follow this blogs instructions. It will take 4 or 5 different cleaners to remove the malware. I am going to give you a list of links for these cleaners. Some of them are free, and unfortunatly some aren’t.

Once your computer is infected, you may never get rid of it all. The new crap that is infecting your machine is tenacious as hell…
It will take a coulpe of hours to run the cleaners through your computer, and hopefully you will at least regain some control over it.

I recommend you go to http://www.malwarebytes.org/antimalware/ , and read some of they’re blog. If you have the names of the malware, type it into they’re search place, and the information you need will magically appear.

Here are some of the cleaners, and tools you will probably have to use to remove the malware.
http://www.malwarebytes.org/antimalware/

http://www.surfright.nl/en/downloads This is hitman pro. When you use it, where it says USER ID type in FREE TRIAL, or free version and they will let you use it for 30 days.

https://toolslib.net/downloads/finish/1/ This is ADW CLEANER. It will be the first one you run, after you’ve identified your particular infection.

This one will be number two. http://malwaretips.com/blogs/pup-optional-mindspark-removal/#junkware

This is number three, but if you did what I said earlier, you already have this.
http://www.malwarebytes.org/antimalware/

This is number four. http://www.malwarebytes.org/antimalware/

These are some others, but they will cost money. You may have to actually buy some of these to rid yourself of the malware.
A note: I still have to scan my computer every week, and I am still pulling malware out of it. Good luck, and have a nice day!

More Intelligently Made Objects ! Opportunity ~Sol 3954 ~

I have a bunch of stuff to take care of today, so feel free to watch a couple of videos and make some popcorn. I just swept the place out, and caught all of the spiders that were running around in here.

Today we all can just space out! Are the new plans to go to Mars because too many anomalies have been found? Is any of this stuff for real? If there are intelligent beings on the Red Planet, does it make a difference to you?
One of these videos would suggest the video was actually shot here on “the pretty blue planet” Earth.

Some of the things shown are definitely not to be believed, so as usual you can watch and just try to be entertained. Y’all have a great day.

Why Do I Need A New Charger?

Here is the most popular question about new technology, and the products we are encouraged to buy. ” Why does every new item need a new style of charging cord? ” Even gadgets of the same make seem to require you to purchase a new charger, as the older style doesn’t work on the new model.

The answer is only too obvious, but it raises the question, aren’t these big businesses making plenty of money, selling us ” new and improved ” gadgetry? I am constantly amazed with all of the changes that are made to virtually the same products. There is no reason to change the simple things, like charging cords.

Most of the new tech items are using the USB port type chargers, and have the ability to recharge from a laptop, or a wall mount type charger, although the basic amperage may be different. Usually there is a safety feature installed to prevent your device from accepting too much voltage.

All of the phones use the same voltage batteries, but the battery designs are different, so you can’t use the old one you have. That way you have to buy a new one, and that generates more revenues for the parent company. Most of the laptops, and notebooks use a battery that ranges from 5 volts to 20 volts, depending on the device.
Almost all of the phones use a 3.6 volt battery. For those not in the know, it takes more voltage than what the battery voltage is, to fully charge. That is why chargers for your phone say they deliver 5 volts, while the battery is only 3.6 volts.

Compatible with HP, Dell, Toshiba, Acer, Samsung, Sony, Gateway Laptops; Google Nexus 7 Tablets; iPad 4,3,2, iPad mini, iPad Air, iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5S, 5C, 5 (Lightning Cable not Provided), Samsung Galaxy S6 S5 S4,S3, Note 4 3 2; HTC One M8 M9 and More

Here’s how to charge any battery enough to keep doing the important stuff.

Fact 1: All past and future rechargeable batteries can be safely trickle charged if you don’t overcharge them. Trickle means low current, like half an amp for an average camera or phone battery.
Fact 2: Small incandescent bulbs such as flashlight bulbs and christmas tree mini lights make great current regulators.

You can plug any USB device into any USB cable and into any USB port, and nothing will blow up — and in fact, using a more powerful charger should speed up battery charging.

Grasshopper 325m Test | Single Camera (Hexacopter)

http://www.space.com/23193-spacex-grasshopper-rocket-highest-hop-video.html

Published on Jul 7, 2013
On June 14, SpaceX’s Grasshopper flew 325 m (1066 feet)–higher than Manhattan’s Chrysler Building–before smoothly landing back on the pad. For the first time in this test, Grasshopper made use of its full navigation sensor suite with the F9-R closed loop control flight algorithms to accomplish a precision landing. Most rockets are equipped with sensors to determine position, but these sensors are generally not accurate enough to accomplish the type of precision landing necessary with Grasshopper.

Previous Grasshopper tests relied on the other rocket sensors but for this test, an additional, higher accuracy sensor was in the control loop. In other words, SpaceX was directly controlling the vehicle based on new sensor readings, adding a new level of accuracy in sensing the distance between Grasshopper and the ground, enabling a more precise landing.

Grasshopper is a 10-story Vertical Takeoff Vertical Landing (VTVL) vehicle designed to test the technologies needed to return a rocket back to Earth intact. While most rockets are designed to burn up on atmosphere reentry, SpaceX rockets are being designed not only to withstand reentry, but also to return to the launch pad for a vertical landing. The Grasshopper VTVL vehicle represents a critical step towards this goal.
