New Para-Series Electronic Battery Connection Method Improves Energy Efficiency by Up to 30%

Switching Battery Inc. has unveiled an innovative electronic method for the connection of batteries called “para-series”.  The patent-pending para-series method is based on dynamically switching a group of batteries between series and parallel connections. As these two connection schemes have complementary properties, the para-series method can yield the optimal result for the output voltage. When two 3.7V batteries are … Read more

High School Students Help in Scientific Study

California State University, Northridge (CSUN) professor Dr. Peter Edmunds and his graduate students have been working with Campbell Hall high school students for the past several years to bring a meaningful, real-world scientific project to the classroom. This collaboration has resulted in new findings that have concerning implications for mustard hill coral on the coast … Read more

Rare Brain Damaged Patient May Settle Controversy Over Fish Pain

Taylor & Francis announces that a multidisciplinary team has published a paper in the journal Philosophical Psychology that may help settle the ongoing debate over fish pain. Following the discovery of pain receptors (nociceptors) in fish in the early 21st century, scientists followed up with behavioral experiments that seemed to show that fish feel pain. However, … Read more

Intelligent Lure ‘smartLure Model Zero’ Unlocks Secrets of Fishing by Processing Big Data of Lure Actions and Environmental Factors

smartLure Corp. announced today that the company has developed the world’s first* intelligent lure, “smartLure Model Zero”, which collects data on its actions and environmental factors while it is in the water and transfers the data to smartphone for processing. This enables anglers to obtain accurate information on the underwater environment that could not be … Read more

Neutrino Energy: Bombarding neutrinos cause resonance

As a collaboration between scientists in Germany, the USA, and beyond, the Neutrino Energy Group represents the cutting edge of alternative energy science. A few years ago, the scientific community scoffed at founder Holger Thorsten Schubart’s assurances that neutrinos could be exploited for energy. Now, however, Holger and his team are hard at work designing … Read more
