A MAGRAV-MAGNETMOTOR is one whose mode of propulsion comes entirely from the forces exerted by permanent magnets. The special arrangement of the magnets drives a rotor, i.e. it causes rotation. An important feature of this motor is that, in this constellation, a practically endless means of propulsion can be achieved with an extremely small expenditure of energy (1:100) (see illustration).
To achieve the desired rotation, the permanent magnets are neutralized through the input of a minimal amount of energy.
Previously, this was only possible with an energy equivalent of 1:1. The discovery described above provides, for the first time, a way of generating a constant force with an energy equivalent of 1:100. This ingenious technology will bring about major changes in industrial processes, and the physics textbooks on energy equivalence will need considerable revision. We are aware that a number of physicists will find it difficult to come to terms with the implications of this discovery – but history is full of examples in which tenaciously held ideas are finally abandoned and what seemed to be impossible becomes completely commonplace.
Do we think we have found the perpetuum mobile? The MAGRAV motor makes no claim at all to be a perpetuum mobile and in no way does it contradict the energy conservation law. Essentially, it is nothing more than an innovative and especially effective means of harnessing normal magnetic forces.
How can this motor be used?
The main areas of use for the motor are in the provision of decentralized and smart energy supplies for residential and other buildings at moderate energy prices that, in the long run, will be substantially lower than the cost forecasts of the leading economic institutes.
When the required research and development work has been done, the magnet-gravitation motor will be available as a drive component for emission free vehicles. These may be developed as full-hybrids or as electric vehicles as the motor can be used to generate regenerative electricity without any CO2 emission – fulfilling one of mankind’s greatest aspirations.

RT news – New cables ‘expose’ US govt lobbies worldwide for Monsanto, other GMO corps

After US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks showed that the State Department was lobbying worldwide for Monsanto and other similar corporations, a new report based on the cables shows Washington’s shilling for the biotech industry in distinct detail.
The August 2011 WikiLeaks revelations showed that American diplomats had requested funding to send lobbyists for the biotech industry to hold talks with politicians and agricultural officials in “target countries” in areas like Africa and Latin America, where genetically-modified crops were not yet a mainstay, as well as some European countries that have resisted the controversial agricultural practice.
After a concerted effort to “closely examine five years of State Department diplomatic cables from 2005 to 2009 to provide the first comprehensive analysis of the strategy, tactics and U.S. foreign policy objectives to foist pro-agricultural biotechnology policies worldwide,” nonprofit consumer protection group Food & Water Watch published on Tuesday a report showing in plain detail the depth of the partnership between the federal government and a number of controversial biotech companies that have slowly but surely pushed their GMO products on a number of new countries in recent years.
At center stage in the report is Monsanto, the St. Louis, Missouri-based makers of genetically-modified crops and genetically-engineered seeds that has continuously generated criticism as of late over its practices both on the growing field and in a court of law. Monsanto is among the most valuable corporations in the US, yet has relentlessly sued small-time farmers across the world over alleged patent violations, often forcing independent agriculturists to go out of business. Legislation signed into law last month provided litigation immunity to GMO companies including Monsanto, and on Monday the Supreme Court sided with the corporation when ruling on a landmark patent infringement case.
“The US Department of State is selling seeds instead of democracy,” Food & Water Watch Executive Director Wenonah Hauter told reporters. “This report provides a chilling snapshot of how a handful of giant biotechnology companies are unduly influencing US foreign policy and undermining our diplomatic efforts to promote security, international development and transparency worldwide. This report is a call to action for Americans because public policy should not be for sale to the highest bidder.”
Food & Water Watch published their findings this week after combing through the roughly 260,000 State Department cables that the whistleblower website first began publishing in 2010, but notes that their statistics specifically come from memos not classified as ‘secret’ or higher.
For the most part, wrote the nonprofit, “The State Department strategy sought to foist pro-biotech policies on foreign governments” using a four-prong approach: promote biotech business interests; lobby foreign governments to weaken biotech rules; protect US biotech exports and press developing world to adopt biotech crops.
As the cables are analyzed, though, the efforts the State Department undertook to advocate for Monsanto demonstrate a willingness to put a US-based company’s profits about the interests and health of those residing in foreign nations.
In a cable sent from the Slovakian consulate in 2005, the State Department is told that the local post “will continue its efforts to dispel myths about GMOs and advocate on behalf of Monsanto.” In 2009, a cable out of Madrid, Spain announced that Monsanto had made “urgent requests” to fight off an anti-GMO opposition campaign that posed problems to the biotech industry. Other revelations show pro-GMO efforts waged by the US on behalf of the biotech industry in Hong Kong, the European Union, Egypt and elsewhere.
However, activists in the areas in question and elsewhere are taking note of Monsanto’s dangerous and growing influence, with anti-Monsanto demonstrations planned in 36 cities on six continents for spring and summer 2013.
“The State Department’s efforts impose the policy objectives of the largest biotech seed companies on often skeptical or resistant governments and public, and exemplifies thinly veiled corporate diplomacy,” alleged Food & Water Watch.
When Food & Water Watch scoured those cables, they concluded that the State Department was conducting off-the-radar negotiations that didn’t seem to advance democracy or American ideals — instead, rather, it found evidence of lobbying used to advance the agenda of thriving US companies that have already purchased the approval of much of Washington.
“It’s not surprising that Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta, Bayer and Dow want to maintain and expand their control of the $15 billion global biotech seed market, but it’s appalling that the State Department is complicit in supporting their goals despite public and government opposition in several countries,” Ronnie Cummins, executive director of Organic Consumers Association, said in the press release accompanying the report. “American taxpayer’s money should not be spent advancing the goals of a few giant biotech companies.”
Of the 926 State Department cables analyzed by Food & Water Watch, the group found Monsanto appeared in more than 6 percent of the memos, shining light on how a federal agency “worked especially hard to promote the interests” of an outside company.
When reached for comment by Reuters, Monsanto spokesman Tom Helscher said, “We remain committed to sharing information so that individuals can better understand our business and our commitments to support farmers throughout the world as they work to meet the agriculture demands of our world’s growing population.” The State Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
As RT reported previously, that so-called “Monsanto Protection Act” signed into law last month was co-authored by a senator that has received thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from the company — a revelation that didn’t surprise many given that another important figure in Washington, Justice Clarence Thomas, served as an attorney for the corporation before he was nominated to the high court only to eventually preside over a case involving his former employer. But according to Food & Water Watch, the relationship between Monsanto and the government extends beyond Congress and the Supreme Court. In a statement published on Tuesday to accompany their report, Food & Water Watch wrote that the cables detail “how the US State Department lobbies foreign governments to adopt pro-agricultural biotechnology policies and laws, operates a rigorous public relations campaign to improve the image of biotechnology and challenges commonsense biotechnology safeguards and rules — including opposing genetically engineered (GE) food labeling laws.”
This week’s report comes just one day after Justice Thomas and the Supreme Court sided with Monsanto in reaching a decision in a landmark patent suit. In the case, the high court said that an Indiana farmer infringed on Monsanto’s patent rights by using specially-made seeds he obtained second-hand without signing a contract with the company. That ruling, however, came just days after the company was hit with comparably bad news: on Friday, the US Department of Agriculture ordered an extra round of tests for new GMO breeds being developed by Monsanto and Dow, putting on hold plans to release to the public laboratory-made crops that can withstand heavy dousing of dangerous pesticides. Both companies want to make available crops that are resistant to the chemicals 2,4-D and dicamba, a move that environmentalists fear will prompt farmers to use more of these toxins.
“The danger that 2,4-D and dicamba pose is a real threat to crops…nearly every food crop,” Steve Smith, director of agriculture at Red Gold, told Reuters last year.
Here’s the official explanation.
NEW YORK — On an unseasonably warm Sunday afternoon on Pier 6 in Brooklyn, hundreds of people craned their necks and looked up toward the sky at a cryptic message being written above.
Skywriting is often associated with advertisements, ambitious marriage proposals or Wicked Witches of the West, but on Sunday, nobody was quite sure what to think.
The plane began by slowly puffing out the word “LOST,” and then what looked to be the word “OUR,” though one young boy on the pier was convinced that the “O” was a “D” and asked his mom if there were any words that began with “Dur.” “No, sweetie, I don’t think so,” she responded. Finally, the plane finished up.
“LOST OUR LEASE.”
After taking the subway into Manhattan, I emerged above ground to find that our skywriter wasn’t quite finished. “LAST CHANCE” was now emblazoned over the financial district.
“Now this is getting freaky,” muttered a girl with a nose ring and a bag of groceries.
As sunset approached, the plane spelled out “NOW OPEN,” which seemed to contradict the previous messages.
“So it was just an advertisement,” a friend concluded. “Well, that’s boring.”
But it turns out the whole thing was an art project. Sponsored by the nonprofit group Friends of the High Line, which supports the wildly popular elevated park in Manhattan, “The Sky Is The Limit/NYC” was six months in the making.
The New York Times‘ City Room blog spoke with Kim Beck, a Carnegie Mellon professor and the artist behind the project, who said that the phrases she chose were meant as a comment on the current economic climate.
“They’re advertising messages that are no longer advertising anything specific,” Ms. Beck told City Room. “‘Lost Our Lease’ can speak to the feeling of being exhausted, and ‘Last Chance’ is everything coming to an end. ‘Now Open’ means something else as well.”
According to the New York Daily News, quite a few New Yorkers were concerned that the project was part of a terrorist plot, and many said that after seeing “Last Chance” emblazoned across the sky, they considered leaving town immediately.
The NYPD wouldn’t comment on how many complaint calls they received about the incident, but in 2010, another art project sparked a similar frenzy.
After a sculpture of a man was perched conspicuously on the ledge of the Empire State Building — part of a public art installation by British artist Antony Gormley — calls poured into 911 on a daily basis with reports of a possible suicide attempt.
Is there a lesson to be learned here? Perhaps the next time something weird and immediately unexplainable occurs in our city, we should first assume it’s a mysterious art project.
And after that, maybe we can panic.
Environmentalist/Climate Catastrophe activist Bill McKibben’s campaign and web site www.350.org has a very specific, vital mission:
“350 means climate safety. To preserve our planet, scientists tell us we must reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere from its current level of 392 parts per million to below 350 ppm. But 350 is more than a number—it's a symbol of where we need to head as a planet.”
