Music Guitars Student When you have oil, coal, natural gas they're finite solutions. And there will be a time when they will run out. And there will still be humans on this planet. Dr. Russell Half of the total primary energy consumed in the U.S. 48 pretty much just say half is consumed by residential and commercial buildings. So we really, if we're going to if we're going to have energy independence and if we're going to be able to reduce our carbon footprint buildings are a.
Really big place to start. Narrator In 2010, Appalachian State University was chosen as one of twenty teams from around the globe to compete in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2011. The competition challenges young minds from around the world to design and engineer a cost effective, energy efficient, and attractive solar home. Many of the innovations used today in these prototypes hold the promise of being part of our daily life tomorrow. Dr. Russell I think first and foremost our goal is to win the competition. It's really, uh It's really a.
A big deal. It's the largest green design and sustainable design competition in the world. And so we'll be on a world stage competing with universities from all over. Bret You realize the importance and the future of homebuilding. This is the future. This is where we're going. But it's how we're going to get there. And so this Homestead we believe is how we're going to get there. Gentle Guitar Narrator Appalachian's construction The Solar Homestead stands apart from many other solar homes in the competition.
Because of its unique, innovative structure The Outbuilding Module, or OM. The OM generates energy for the home and also has mobile capabilities that enable it to act separately from the rest of The Homestead. Deeply rooted in the architectural design of The Solar Homestead is the tradition and efficiency of mountain living. Bret The Solar Homestead design and concept comes from the early pioneers of the Appalachian Mountains. and we believe that this, this style this concept can really solve some issues that we're having not only economically, but environmentally.
Within our country. Chelsea We really wanted to take the concept of the traditional lifestyle of people that lived around Boone, North Carolina and how they used outdoor modules they had all these separate outbuildings that they used in different ways and how can we reinvent that to a modern day lifestyle. Narrator The trip to the Solar Decathlon in Washington DC this September has given Appalachian the opportunity to involve a variety of students and faculty from different departments in an effort to not just compete but to win the competition.
Chelsea We want to get the art department involved. We've had graphic designers involved. Building science majors. We've had appropriate technology majors. Interior design. Bret This is the biggest thing along, along renewable energy side along sustainability goes this is the biggest thing that the institution's ever done. Narrator The Solar Homestead does not just represent Appalachian's best foot forward, but a greater commitment that the school and region has to renewable energy and flexible, affordable, and reliable solutions for tomorrow. Ed Representing North Carolina is very important to us but as a whole this is more important.
140415 EPA Lacks Data
Hello, this is Scott and this is the Hyper Report. Today's report is sponsored by the free book 'Ramblings of a Madman'. Here are quotes for various items. First. Currency Wars According to Jim Rickards, we are in the midst of a currency war where currencies are racing to the bottom. In response, Russia and China have increased their physical gold reserves by 70 and several hundred percent respectively. In addition, oil rich Saudi Arabia feels stabbed in the back with the U.S. giving the green light for Iranian nuclear development. More and more,.
Other nations are working together on an economic front and this spells bad news for the U.S. Dollar. Next. CommodityBacked Currencies China and Russia are making huge investments in commodityminers. China is buying a copper mine in Peru, that produced 450,000 tons of copper in the last five years. Russia is in the process of DEoffshorisation of their gold mining operations. Is this another dot for people to connect Next. Dirty Harry It appears the Senator Judas err. Reid is responsible for the massacre that could have occurred at the Bundy Ranch. In response to the explosive story of the.
Chinese connection, the BLM has apparently removed documents from their website showing solar energy development on the land in dispute. So did Harry get paid 30 pieces of silver Next. Assault Weapon Rebellion What would happen if a government passed a new gun law but nobody obeyed it This is what is happening in Connecticut where the most stringent gun control law was passed. Just 50,000 of the estimated 372,000 socalled assault weapons in the state were registered by the deadline. Grab your popcorn as the state possibly sends their 1,100 officers against 80,000 suspect assault weapon owners.
Next. No Science Seven months after being subpoenaed by Congress, EPA dictator Gina McCarthy conceded scientific data cannot be produced to justify the numerous rules and regulations under the Clean Air Act. Of course, since when did the EPA need science in their unstated primary goal of the destruction of the U.S. economy Next. No Faith When it comes to trusting the actions of the U.S. government, there is a simple question. Who in this day and age with the NSA spying, illegal wars or kinetic military actions, Patriot Act, TSA, IRS scandals, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, and market manipulations is going to believe.
Vortex Bladeless develops a Wind Turbine without Blades
Vortex Bladeless is a Spanish tech startup. It wants to completely change the way we get energy from the wind. Think wind stick instead of a massive tower with blades that capture blowing winds. The Vortex is a new kind of Wind Turbine being developed without any blades. The conical shape harnesses the oscillating motion caused by the wind and converts that to kinetic energy. When wind hits a structure and flows over its surfaces the flow changes and generates a cyclical pattern of vortices at the tail end of the flow. This is known as the vortex.
Shedding effect which creates something known as vorticity and that is what Vortex Bladeless uses to generate energy. Vorticity has long been considered the enemy of architects and engineers, who actively try to design their way around these whirlpools of wind. Where designers see danger, Vortex Bladeless's founders see opportunity. The team started Vortex Bladeless in 2010 as a way to turn this vibrating energy into something productive. This is not your usual wind turbine. It consists of a fixed mast, a power generator that has no moving parts which come into contact with each other and a semirigid fiberglass cylinder.
The power generator is a system of magnetic coupling devices which means there are no gears needing lubrication and an overall system needing less maintenance. The Vortex team says there are some clear advantages to their model It's less expensive to manufacture, totally silent, and safer for birds since there are no blades to fly into. According to conservative estimates Vortex saves 53 in manufacturing costs and 51 in operating costs compared to conventional wind turbines. Vortex is much smaller than traditional wind turbines, allowing you to use your space more.
Efficiently. Initially, the cofounders were looking at large generating devices. That remains a longerterm goal but a much shorter range goal is a device of 4kW Vortex that would be about 13 meters tall. The company sees this generator being used in conjunction with solar generation for homes that are either off the grid or want to be off the grid. This spanish company has already raised $1 million from private capital and government funding in Spain. In February of this year, Vortex Bladeless relocated to Boston. There it is working with.
Brasada Ranch Resort Casa La Torre Western Design House Plans
Example Plans for Brasada Ranch Home see more homes designed for the pacific NW at BuildingDesign Central Oregon's premier building designer using green materials like ICF SIPs. Home plans you are going to love not just a stock plan or run of the mill set of house blue prints. Prineville Bend Redmond Sunriver Brasada Ranch Caldera Springs Tetherow drawings The story of Casa La Torre To the best of our ability to Fibracate the following are the true historical facts relating to this unusual home It must have been about 1856 or 1857 when Charlie first slept under the stars right here in this exact spot.
He was so taken by the beauty he encountered here that he decided to put an end to his days as a drifter and settle down By the time the first snow fell in that winter of '57 Charlie had the roof on his log cabin. You can still see the major part of it on the left side of the walk as you pass through the court yard. Charlie spent that winter building the stone well house and digging the well. See it on the right of the court yard.
Yep that's it the one where the plaster is falling off the upper walls the effects of a century of high desert weather. Well Charlie hit a gusher of a well some say it was an artesian it just shot up out of the ground with no pump or anything. He had so much water that he decided to build the water tower you saw as you came up to the house Yep the tall round thing straight ahead. Charlie knew he could sell water to the stage line and maybe the railroad if they ever came through.
Charlie did pretty good selling water and prospecting for silver on the side. Then one day he just up and left town went north to Seattle folks said The story was that his wagon was so heavy the tracks could be seen for three or four summers. No one really knew what was in that wagon under those blankets but the old ledger from the general store shows that Charlie bought 586 heavy cloth bags in the months before he left We think we might have unearthed another strong clue when we dug out for our wine cellar. Take a look.
Duracell Powerpack and Assistive Technology
GtgtWade Hi I'm Wade Wingler with the INDATA Project at Easter Seals Crossroads in Indiana. You know, assistive technology gadgets and devices a lot of times need power, and sometimes there's no place to plug in the device that you need to do whatever it is you need to do. Brian Norton the Manager of our clinical services is going to show you an interesting way that we often use to get power in unusual places. Check this out. gtgtBrian Hi my name is Brian Norton. I'm glad to be here with you today. Today I'm going.
To talk a little bit about a product that's a little outside the box of assistive technology. Umm, but I have found very useful, for different situations that I find myself in as I go out and work with individuals in their job, at home, school, and other places. This is a Duracell Power Pack 600. The reason I am showing this today is I have used this in a few different situations where I've been on a job site with an individual and we're trying to do an accommodation and unfortunately the location within the job site doesn't have power. So we need some.
Sort of portable power to be able to run an electronic device, potentially a computer system and some other things. I've actually used this in the past a couple of times. It works really, really well. What I love about it is you can charge it up, it takes about 36 hours to charge up the initial time, but then after you use it successfully, successively you continue to plug it in and charge the battery and it will maintain a power source for you. It comes with three grounded plugs on the very front so you can plug in a few.
Different devices. You can also flip it around and it has two USB ports that can be powered from the very back of it. Then on the side you also have a cigarette lighter adapter, where you can plug things in as well. This is really made for individuals to charge the battery in their car and some other things. But it works really really well in situations where maybe you're in the middle of a room, you don't have the power source you need, but you do have an electronic device that needs the power, this could do the job for.
