Experimental Particle Research Suggests Standard Model Violations

An article in Scientific American reports that recent experiments carried out in the United States, Switzerland and Japan suggest that three particles: electrons, muons and tau leptons maybe violating the Standard Model, which scientists say could lead to a huge and revolutionary shakeup in the world of physics

“The evidence comes from electrons and their more massive cousins, muons and tau leptons. According to the Standard Model, these three particles should behave like differently sized but otherwise identical triplets. But three experiments have produced growing evidence—including results announced in just the last few months—that the particles react differently to some as-yet mysterious influence. The findings are not yet conclusive, but if they hold up, “it would be a complete revolution,” says California Institute of Technology theorist Mark Wise.”

ECCO Testing: First MFMP Update from India (Update: Suhas Agrees To Help MFMP Replicate in Europe)

UPDATE (July 20, 2017)

The following video has been posted, in which Suhas agrees to visit the MFMP in central Europe and help them to replicate this technology. He and the MFMP have given up trying to carry out testing during the current visit.

******************************************************************************

I haven’t had time to listen to this yet, but this is Bob’s first audio report from India; from the description it sounds like it is not plain sailing:

“After a gruelling journey and two nights with little sleep, we arrive with all equipment intact only to face more difficult challenges, people.”

Also: “ECCO day one – stupidity rules the world”

Summary:

Bob Greenyer and George Egely’s flight to India was delayed, but the finally got to India. They say they have trouble with the inventor and the bank. While they were in transit they got notification that Suhas had been visited by bank officers, who had put a padlock on the door of the laboratory. Bob Greenyer and George Egely went to see the bank manager who refused to open the lab.

The bank told MFMP that they found out that Suhas was doing research, and they did not support that, they were only interested in supporting production. MFMP tried in vain to negotiate access to the lab so they could do testing. Bob says he tried “literally everything” to get access to the lab.

They made an offer to rent the lab for 3 days, but the bank manager said that offer would have to come from Suhas. Bob says they will try again tomorrow. In the meantime they are having technical discussions with Suhas about his technology.

Video: Tom Darden Reflects on Life in Environmental Cleanup, LENR Businesses

A reader sent me a link to a video which he recorded at a Clean Tech Summit at the University of North Carolina held in March 2017 of an address by Cherokee CEO Tom Darden, where he discusses a lifetime working in the field of investing in brownfield cleanup and in supporting LENR research, and some of the lessons he has learned.

He refers to talking to many top researchers in the LENR field, and initially investing in about a dozen. At the time of this talk, he states that there are about three of them that they still felt were promising (not naming any names). He makes no mention of the Rossi v. IH lawsuit which was going on at the time.

The audio quality is not great (it’s really quiet), but with my headphones on and turned up I can hear it fine.

Tear-down and Testing of Orbo O-Cube Cells (Greg Daigle)

The following post has been submitted by Greg Daigle
The last threads from Frank about Steorn’s Orbo “OCube” reported in this forum had mixed results. In E-Cat World you can reference these postings:
In summary, the O-Cube appeared not to perform as claimed and the electronic circuitry was suspected as the cause.
Since then (February/March 2017), Steorn closed shop, liquidated its assets, and founder Shaun McCarthy and some of his former emploO-Cube Report v2
yees have gone on to new ventures.
In early October 2016 Frank sent the OCube he had received from Steorn to me (I am a former member of the Steorn Knowledge Data Base) and I began a teardown of the components.  I acquired a digital oscilloscope and other software to do some analysis of the individual blue cells.  The blue cells were the battery-like components, covered in mastic and purportedly containing rolls of Shaun’s “magic film” capable of recharging themselves.  Testing was as time allowed.
This report highlights that testing of the blue cells and the results.  From these tests the following conclusions were reached regarding individual blue cells:
  1. They do not harvest energy from the environment
  2. They do recharge themselves as claimed by Steorn
I remain open to doing additional tests as time allows.  Looking forward to critiques and ideas to test.

EmDrive — A Challenge to Scientific Orthodoxy (Roger Shawer)

A reader forwarded to me a presentation by Roger Shawyer, the British inventor of the EmDrive, who reports he has been given permission by the UK Department of Defense to put this in the public domain. Mr Shawyer would like to have this presentation circulated as widely as possible. http://www.e-catworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Shrivenham-presentation-V.3.pdf

12th International Workshop on Anomalies in Hydrogen Loaded Metals to be held in Asti, Italy Next Week

There’s a meeting taking place in Asti, in northern Italy next week which looks to be an interesting event for people interested in LENR. The title of the workshop is “12th International Workshop on Anomalies in Hydrogen Loaded Metals” and is being sponsored by ISCMNS, LENRIA, JCFRS, FSCMNS, Airbus Group, HERA, and Nichenergy.
