Man and animal exhibit various signs of being in tune with the universe, but recently a team of zoologists from University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany made a new finding, one which provides yet another example of Franz Mesmer's theory of animal magnetism: Under stable conditions in the Earth's magnetic field, dogs will tend to urinate and defecate in line with its magnetic field.
General Electric says it's a little more complicated than making instant oatmeal, but the company, along with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, is developing a recipe of electrochemical solution and water that will power a cheaper, safer, and longer-charged battery than current electric vehicle (EV) batteries. The developers are hoping their newly designed flow battery will remain charged for three times longer than the current Tesla S Model battery (265 milles) and cost about a quarter of the S Model battery.
The water batteries however, have no such problem. Aqua Power System Japan were the first to introduce NOPOPO - an eco-friendly battery that generates No Pollution Power - thus the name NoPoPo. The battery is completely rechargeable and it can be totally recycled. The water used within the battery is regular drinking water. No need for special water like that used in a car battery.
