    • Heat Transfer Systems launches HTfluidfit for thermal fluid conditioning (WorldPumps.com)- November 16, 2010
    • The HTfluidfit from Heat Transfer Systems conditions thermal fluids within the operating system, which extends pump life, delivers cost savings and reduces carbon emissions and waste. Benefits of the HTfluidfit include; guaranteed flash and fire points; consistant heat transfer performance; reduction in high and low boilers, sludges and insolubles and long-term sustainability. Richard Franklin, director of Heat Transfer Systems said: “This new system will transform heat transfer fluid maintena... More...
    • Scientists convert information into pure energy (msnbc.com)- November 15, 2010
    • For the first time, scientists have converted information into pure energy, experimentally verifying a thought experiment first proposed 150 years ago. The idea was originally formulated by physicist James Clerk Maxwell, but it gained controversy because it appeared to violate the second law of thermodynamics. Put in experimental terms, this law states that when hot and cold water are mixed, they will eventually reach an equilibrium middling temperature. Maxwell proposed that a hypothetical bein... More...
    • Low-carbon energy sources need $10.5trn investment, warns IEA (The Independent)- November 11, 2010
    • The world's energy systems will need an extra $10.5 trillion (£6.3trn) in investment between now and 2030 to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and avoid "irreparable damage to the planet", the International Energy Agency (IEA) warned yesterday. In the run-up to next month's climate summit in Copenhagen, the IEA's annual global outlook outlined parallel forecasts – one based on the current trajectory of global energy consumption, the other a lower-carbon model requiring major international pol...

    • Waste Water Heat Transfer Systems plans 6-8 hires (MetroMode)- November 11, 2010
    • Water going down the drain should hardly be wasted. Or at least that's the way Doug Guldan and Steve Mackenzie see it. The partners are using that idea as the core of their new start-up – Waste Water Heat Transfer Systems. The West Bloomfield-based firm has developed technology that will use the hot draining water to heat water that is about to be used, saving energy costs. "We saw an opportunity to recapture the energy we create when we heat water," says Guldan, president of Waste Water ... More...
    • High-Speed Video Reveals Cats’ Secret Tongue Skills (Wired)- November 11, 2010
    • High-speed videos reveal the strange technique and delicate balance of physical forces cats use to lap milk from a bowl. Unlike dogs, who use their tongues as ladles to scoop water into their jaws, cats pull columns of liquid up to their mouths using only the very tips of their tongues."Cats are just smarter than dogs from the point of view of fluid mechanics," said civil engineer Roman Stocker of MIT.

    • NASA ISS On-Orbit (spaceref.com)- October 31, 2010
    • All ISS systems continue to function nominally, except those noted previously or below. Sunday - Crew rest day. Ahead: Week 6 of Increment 25. Today 10 years ago, Soyuz TM-31 launched in Baikonur at 7:52 GMT (3:52am EDT) with Yuri Gidzenko, Sergei Krikalev & William Shepherd, beginning the permanent occupancy of ISS two days later as Expedition 1. TM-31 returned to Earth on May 6, 2001, with Talgat Musabayev, Yuri Baturin & Dennis Tito. At wake-up, FE-2 Skripochka conducted the regular daily ear... More...
    • Howie Hawkins’ Green New Deal (Artvoice.com)- October 29, 2010
    • Howie Hawkins is the Green Party’s gubernatorial candidate, running on a platform called the “Green New Deal,” which focuses on stimulating economic recovery and stopping climate change. “The Democrats have abandoned their New Deal legacy, which is what most Democrats hope they are voting for,” Hawkins says. “We want to bring back the demands they are asking for.” Demands like single payer healthcare, fully funded public schools, colleges and universities, progressive income tax re...

    • Engineering Simulation Software optimizes product development (ThomasNet)- October 28, 2010
    • today announced the launch of ANSYS 13.0, the newest release of its engineering simulation technology suite designed to optimize product development processes - reducing the time and cost needed to foster product innovations. The advanced technology behind ANSYS 13.0 includes hundreds of new features that make it easier, faster and cheaper for users to bring new products to market, with a high degree of confidence in the ultimate results they will achieve. ANSYS 13.0 delivers new benefits in thr... More...
