1)Explanation of Wireless Transmission of Energy - Several emails to IRI seem to suggest that Tesla was not practical about his Wardenclyffe Tower (Wardenclyffe Centennial 1903-2003). Research actually shows he was very practical and more than a century ahead of the scientists.
2) Energy Prices Soar- Use the AEEG links to investigate future energy demand and/or write a letter to your Congressman. Tell him/her to support clean, fueless energy R & D toward energy independence. Provided in conjunction with the US Chamber of Commerce, AEEG, and the Union of Concerned Scientists.
3) Energy Genius Paul Brown: the Real Story- AutoWeek article tells the details of Paul's life and death. Paul's wife reports to me that their family cars were tampered with several times just before and after his passing, until she installed cameras on the property. IRI has set up a Paul Brown Fund since their insurance company refused to pay life insurance to her, due to the circumstances of his death. Your targeted, tax-deductible donations to IRI for that Fund will be used to help her and publish the Paul Brown archives for her benefit. -TV

1) Wireless Transmission of Electrical Energy
Integrity Research Institute, Thomas Valonewww.integrityresearchinstitute.org
Nikola Tesla's discovery of pulsed propagation of energy does not resemble the standard transverse electromagnetic waves so familiar to electrical engineers everywhere. Many engineers and physicists have dismissed Tesla's wireless energy transmission as unscientific without examining the unusual characteristics and benefits of longitudinal waves. In recognition of the Centennial of the Wardenclyffe Tower (1903-2003) and the Tesla Conference & Expo (Nov. 8-9, 2003), an explanation of Tesla's superior energy transmission discovery is warranted.
The new book, Harnessing the Wheelwork of Nature: Tesla's Science of Energy, contains several papers from prominent physicists detailing the unusual method of pulsing a broadband Tesla coil at a repetition rate of 7.5 Hz to resonate with the Earth's Schumann cavity. Dr. James Corum explains, in one of his papers in the book (p. 198) entitled, "Tesla & the Magnifying Transmitter: A Popular Study for Engineers," that a mechanical analog of the lumped circuit Tesla coil is an easier model for engineers to understand. From mechanical engineering, the "magnifying factor" can be successfully applied to such a circuit. "The circuit is limited only by the circuit resistance. At resonance, the current through the circuit rises until the voltage across the resistance is equal to the source voltage. This circuit was a source of deep frustration to Edison because voltmeter readings taken around the loop did not obey Kirchoff's laws!" As a result, Edison claimed such a circuit was only good for electrocution chairs.
"All that is necessary," says Corum, is that his transmitter power and carrier frequency be capable of round-the-world propagation." In fact, Tesla (in Dec., 1904 L.A. Times) stated, "With my transmitter I actually sent electrical vibrations around the world and received them again, and I then went on to develop my machinery."
The power loss experienced by this pulsed, electrostatic discharge mode of propagation was less than 5% over 25,000 miles. Dr. Van Voorhies says (p. 151), "...path losses are 0.25 dB/Mm at 10 Hz", which often is difficult for engineers to believe, who are used to transverse waves, a resistive medium, and line-of-sight propagation modes. The capacitive dome of the Wardenclyffe Tower is a key to the understanding of the longitudinal waves. Dr. Rauscher quotes Tesla (p. 236), "Later he compared it to a Van de Graaff generator. He also explained the purpose of Wardenclyffe...'one does not need to be an expert to understand that a device of this kind is not a producer of electricity like a dynamo, but merely a receiver or collector with amplifying qualities.'"

2) Energy Prices Soar; Congress Inches Toward an Energy Bill
Alliance for Energy and Economic Growth - March 12, 2003www.yourenergyfuture.org
News from the Hill
With gasoline prices nearing record highs and natural gas prices as high as they were during the energy crisis two years ago, Congress and consumers are again focused on our nation's need for a comprehensive energy policy.
The U.S. House of Representatives began discussions last week regarding energy legislation. Joe Barton (R-TX), chairman of the House Energy and Air Quality subcommittee, held hearings on key energy issues on March 5 and has additional hearings scheduled for this week. A House vote is possible before the spring recess starts on April 11. Representatives Udall (D-NM), Udall (D-CO), and Leach (R-IA) recently introduced HR 1294, a Renewable Electricity Standard bill that
requires utilities to generate 20 percent of their electricity from
clean renewable sources by 2025.
In the Senate, Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chairman Pete Domenici (R-NM) continued an aggressive hearing schedule, with hearings last week on the financial condition of electricity markets and energy use in the transportation secotr. Alliance for Energy and Economic Growth members PSEG Power and the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers were among those who testified.
By 2020, total energy consumption is expected in increase by 32 percent. Petroleum demand is projected to increase by 35 percent, natural gas by 48 percent, coal by 22 percent, electricity by 43 percent, and renewable energy by 38 percent. http://www.uschamber.info/ct/b71KNt41EuDM/supply_and_demand

3)The Strange Life and Stranger Death of Paul Brown
It might be melodramatic to suggest America’s best hope for ending our nuclear waste problem died late one night in an illegal street race in Idaho. Then again, it may not. Dr. Brown was killed on April 7, 2002, in an automobile accident in Boise, Idaho. He developed the idea for Nuclear Solution’s patented photoremediation technology for the remediation of nuclear waste that will now be his legacy.
Paul Brown loved racing, whether it was his Mazda or his Chevy Monte Carlo or his V8-powered motorcycle. When Brown raced at the World Streetnationals at Orlando Speed World Dragway in 2000, he qualified the Mazda at 174.21 mph, covering the quarter-mile from a standing start in less than eight seconds.
Clearly, Paul Brown was leading two lives. In one, he was a distinguished nuclear scientist. In the other, he was a gearhead of the first order, who lived and breath-ed fast cars, many built with the help of his best friend, Willie Lambert, a Boise truck broker.
But trace the story of Nuclear Solutions’ stock price, and the unusual story of Paul Brown accelerates into the bizarre.
It involves a 35-year-old Egyptian named Amr I. Elgindy, who financed his own love of fast cars and his San Diego-area mansion through a couple of Internet stock advisory sites, insidetruth.com and anthonypacific.com. Subscribers to his site would receive stock information based on Elgindy’s contacts before the information became public, allowing his subscribers to buy or sell stock before that news affected stock prices. For this, they paid as much as $7,000 a year.
Elgindy may indeed have had some valuable sources: In May, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New York indicted Elgindy on charges of manipulating stocks by using secret government information fed to him by an FBI agent, and a former FBI agent, who quit the agency to go to work for Elgindy full-time. The indictment inferred as many as six companies may have been victimized, but named only one—Nuclear Solutions. How did it work? Simple. Elgindy was a "short seller," meaning he borrow-ed stock, promising to pay for it later. That is not uncommon. But Elgindy is charged with manipulating the stock’s price. The idea: Borrow a share of stock that sells for, say, $1, sell it, then sabotage it and replace the share of stock you borrowed by buying one when the price drops. If you replace a $1 share of stock with a share you pay 50 cents for, in theory, you’ve doubled your money. Multiply that times millions.
The indictment charges that one of the FBI agents searched the FBI’s confidential database, where he found information about Brown then passed it along to Elgindy, for money. Elgindy shorted the stock and distributed a report to his subscribers last December calling Brown "a convicted felon"—which, incidentally, is untrue. Years ago Brown was investigated for having chemicals that could be used in the manufacture of drugs, but he was able to prove the chemicals were being used in his scientific experimentation.
Regardless, "the stock of Nuclear Solutions fell sharply in the aftermath of Mr. Elgindy’s report," said the Dow Jones News Service. The indictment also charges Elgindy with extorting stock or payments to stop the smear campaigns. Prosecutors are seeking Elgindy’s $2.2 million home, as well as his Ferrari, Bentley, Jaguar and Hummer.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Ken Breen initially alleged that Elgindy’s source of inside information may have even deeper implications. Breen told a federal judge the Cairo-born financial analyst may have known about the terrorist attacks of September 2001; at Elgindy’s detention hearing, Breen speculated, "Perhaps Mr. Elgindy had pre-knowledge of the Sept. 11 attacks. Instead of trying to report it, he tried to profit from it."
An investigation by the Wall Street Journal suggests Brown was working with the FBI on their case against Elgindy, also confirmed by a close business associate of Brown. When Elgindy finally goes to trial, assuming he does, it seems likely a star witness could have been Paul Brown, who could potentially have testified about what Elgindy’s actions did to Brown’s business, and his reputation...
4) NASA Nightime View of the World from Space

The image is a panoramic view of the world from the new space station. It is a night photo with the lights clearly indicating the populated areas.
You can scroll East-West and North-South. Note that Canada's population is almost exclusively along the U.S. border. Moving east to Europe, there is a high population concentration along the Mediterranean Coast. It's easy to spot London, Paris, Stockholm and Vienna. Check out the development of Israel compared to the rest of the Arab countries.
Note the Nile River and the rest of the "Dark Continent." After the Nile, the lights don't come on again until Johannesburg. Look at the Australian Outback and the Trans-Siberian Rail Route. Moving east, the most striking observation is the difference between North and South Korea.
Note the density of Japan. What a piece of photography. It is an absolutely awesome picture of the Earth taken from the Boeing built Space Station last November on a perfect night with no obscuring atmospheric conditions.

Alternatives Forms of Energy - Four alternative forms of energy that can be less harmful than oil. Biodiesel, processed from any vegetable oil, can power most diesel-engine vehicles without modification. Ethanol, an alcohol fuel fermented from corn mash. But new biotech methods would use farm waste, such as cornstalks, as feedstock. http://www.usnews.com/usnews/issue/030217/biztech/17oil.biodiesel.htm
Living Without Oil - Biodiesel can be pumped into nearly any diesel engine tank with no modification. It can be made from any fat or vegetable oil--even used and purified kitchen grease--although it is usually made from the nation's second-biggest crop, soybeans. Environmental benefits are impressive; 100 percent biodiesel eliminates sulfur emissions and cuts particulate matter and some other pollutants by about 50 percent. http://www.usnews.com/usnews/issue/030217/biztech/17oil.htm
Honda Insight Tops Lean Fuel List
The "greenest" car you can buy in 2003 is Honda's hybrid gasoline-electric Insight, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy reported today in Washington. The Insight tops the fuel-efficiency charts at 57 miles per gallon of gasoline, ACEEE said in its "Green Book: The Environmental Guide to Cars & Trucks." The "meanest" gas-guzzler is a Ferrari, which gets 9 mpg. The report lists several top-selling SUVs that get 12 mpg in the city: GMC's Yukon, Chevrolet's Suburban and Silverado, and Land Rover's Range Rover. "If new car and light truck buyers chose the most efficient vehicles in each size class, we would slash the 2003 fleet's gasoline use by 20%," said ACEEE Deputy Director Bill Prindle. The report is available at http://www.greenercars.com.
