The energy returning wheel (ERW) needs no air and lowers energy-consumption.

This video shows the technical background:
Insted of bulgin at the tires side when put under pressure, the ERW saves the energy in the form of torsion of the spokes inside.
When leaving a bend for instance, the spokes return to their original position and free the saved energy with twisting back to their original state. This way even the radius gets reduced because the wheels assist in driving the curve.
"I literally reinvented the wheel"
The energy returning wheel (ERW) needs no air and lowers fuel consumption.

Cars become more responsive and get a shorter breaking distance. The results are better car-handling and a longer driving-distance with a filled tank. The inventors' only competitor is tire-producer michelin with the noisy tweel, made of plastic. It's currently in experimental-stage and designed for special purpose-vehicles only. Unlike michelin, the ERW-inventors are serious to bring their invention on the market: "We teached old dogs some new tricks", is the movie's resume.

How to catch a crowd

In this record from 1997 simple minds appeared in rotterdam at nokia nights of the proms - a classic-meets-pop-concert. The actually more important orchestra is hardly audible while Jim Kerr with band just catched the crowd.

Everytime you use an elevator someone pays 1 US$ for the needed electricity.

Interesting old game from 2000. Just a few month ago a sequel was published, running only on newest computers.

Atomic Cafe - Full-lenght-documentary on youtube

"The Atomic Cafe is a sometimes hilarious, sometimes sobering collection of film clips taken from American propaganda films of the 1950s.

The thrust of the production is to expose the misinformation (and downright lies) dispensed by the government concerning the atomic bomb. We are shown vignettes from such classic instructional films as Duck and Cover, wherein school children are assured that they will survive a nuclear attack simply by huddling together next to the schoolhouse wall.

In another sequence, a pack of pigs are dressed in Army uniforms and left to die at "Ground Zero" during a nuclear test to see if human beings (who purportedly have the same skin consistency as pigs) could endure such an ordeal.

Fascinating though it is, Atomic Cafe makes its basic point early in the proceedings, then tends to repeat that point over and over rather than expand upon it."

Ghostery - Anti-webtracking-plugin

Almost every website has multiple tracking-tools implemented, meanwhile. Ghostery stops tracking from about 500 major data-collection-companies. Most of them are hardly known in public, since they interact only with other companies to sell statistics. A few popular trackers are Doubleclick, Google-Analytics and Yieldmanager.

When visiting a website the plugin shows an overlay-bubble with all detected and stopped trackers. Usually it blocks 1-5 trackers per page. With a click background-informations about a blocked company are shown. Ghostery's database is well kept and informs about the tracking-networks very well.

Most surprising is the regularity of blocked content from the always same trackers. Free internet? Install and watch yourself! Website-publishers usually get money for each hidden tracker. With ghostery someone easyly can see if he/she is still surfing in google-territory or not, during an internet-session. Very strange something alike doesn't get bundled with open-source-browsers already.

The plugin is available for all major browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari.

Description from the plugin's homepage:
"Ghostery sees the invisible web - tags, web bugs, pixels and beacons. Ghostery tracks the trackers and gives you a roll-call of the ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other companies interested in your activity."
