In 1945, Robert Thornton led the construction of the 184-inch (470 cm) 730 MeV cyclotron. In 1946, he oversaw the conversion of the cyclotron to the new design would become the first synchrocyclotron with could produce 195 MeV deuterons and 390 MeV α-particles. However that’s alpha and I would want gamma and since a gamma ray is an uncharged photon, the synchrotron can’t be used with them.

size could fit. output could not

idk enough about plasma physics to answer that


for sure in the 1950s they were working on magnetic confinement of plasma

Many hours are spent on Lesson Plans

Got a course syllabus so i can skip ahead of the class? :joy:

Is that enough live steams?

cause i’m going to bed soon and i don’t mind searching for a few minutes if anyone wants more

Thank you very much. Goodnight

Thank you for all the wizard homework. It’s been one of my greatest joys and moments I look forward to each today. Today especially was deeply fascinating and enriching.

+1 I second that

While Kenosha rages on the real war is taking place behind the scenes

Also amazed how neutral and in the center of the storm of what’s happening in the nation. Focused on the bigger playouts rather then getting caught up in the disruption and mind f*ck that all of this is here to war on us on every level. I have much more energy and focus and way less impacted by the chaos purposely playing out. Focused right now in continuing upleveling protection, security and surival various situations especially with popeye and solar minimum of what can come. Then enjoying the richness of hw my own love for meta world and my own spiritual practices. All while also enjoying the calm on the home front while it’s still here. Feeling solid and resilient and confident in what ever comes. Continuing to build daily.

Exactly! Not to mention destroying food stores, food cargo, popeye on crops and solar minimum that has and will only increase and lead to food crisis. Then people will really lose it and feel ridiculous they were caught in divide and conquer. Then it will be too late. If we are smart we are prepped and well protected against the ones that did not listen. This fall and winter will be wild and I have a feeling surival of the fittest and higher magnitude of war etc. It’s time to keep going.

Protester just shot on the chest by “white boy” antifa

Season 1, Episode 4 of Master of None you can learn more about NDB batteries.

These batteries have been around for decades

Recap 8/25/2020

  1. Riot police stormed Paris bar over no social distancing while actual riots were taking place across the rest of the city.

  2. Fury erupts outside Buckingham Palace as enraged crowds scream “paedophile” at gates.

  3. Explosion destroys gas pipeline one day after Iran admits Natanz blast was deliberate. Explosions continue to rock the Middle East, and they have Iran and its allies increasingly on edge.

  4. Massive protests and a torch rally was held in Muzaffarabad city of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) on Monday night to oppose the mega-dams to be constructed by Chinese firms on Neelum-Jhelum River. The protesters hailing from ‘‘Darya Bachao, Muzaffarabad Bachao" (Save River, Save Muzaffarabad) Committee’’ chanted slogans like “Neelum-Jhelum behne do, humein zinda rehne do” (let the Neelum and Jhelum rivers flow, let us live). The rally was attended by over a thousand people from the city and other parts of PoK.

  5. Six killed in truck bomb explosion in northern Afghanistan. Taliban claims responsibility. “Six people, including an assailant, were killed and 32 people wounded after a Taliban militants’ suicide truck bomb blast took place outside a special forces’ camp in northern Afghanistan’s Balkh province on Tuesday, an army source confirmed.”

  6. India is keeping its “military options” open if the ongoing diplomatic and military talks with China do not lead to a breakthrough in the stalled troop disengagement and de-escalation in eastern Ladakh. In a clear signal of intent to China, Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat said the Indian armed forces “remain prepared for military actions” if “peaceful efforts” through talks did not succeed in restoring the status quo along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) as it existed in April. The statement appears aimed at conveying that a prolonged stand-off with Chinese troops camping in certain areas like Pangong and Depsang will not be acceptable.

  7. The poison Navalny was given is from the same series as the Novichok with which Yulia and Sergei Skripals were poisoned. Alexei Navalny was poisoned, in his analysis they found a toxin from the group of cholinesterase inhibitors, said doctors from the Berlin clinic Charite. A class of such substances includes military poisons, the action of which can have long-term effects on humans, according to experts interviewed by the BBC. Among such poisons, for example, is Novichok, which poisoned former GRU officer Sergei Skripal in Great Britain. Mikhail Fremderman, a resuscitator at Haifa hospital (until 2014 - head of intensive care unit of the hospital 26 in St. Petersburg) explained to the BBC that “CHE is a group of phosphorus-organic substances that block the transmission of impulses through the nervous system.” The CHE class can be conditionally divided into two groups: "There are substances that are limited, but are used for therapeutic purposes - eye practice, surgery. And there are chemical warfare agents. These are military poisons, very toxic. They also cause death in depending on the dosage.” Substances of this group are synthesized artificially, they can be both solid and liquid, the expert specified. “The drug with which Navalny was poisoned is from the same group as the military substances that have been used for a very long time - from sarin gas sprayed in Tokyo subway by Aum Shinrikyo sect to Novichok,” said Fremderman. ”It can be concluded that this is a deliberate poisoning - the use of a substance against a man from the arsenal of combat toxicology. These are drugs from a group that were used as chemical warfare agents to kill people in war.” The press service of the Pirogov Resuscitation Center, whose specialists flew to Omsk for consultations, refused to answer BBC’s questions and said that everything related to Navalny’s poisoning will be commented on by the Center’s specialists only after permission from the Russian Ministry of Health. Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov today called the German poisoning data “empty noise” which the Kremlin does not intend to take seriously.

  8. Bolshoi Utrish reserve burns near Anapa, emergency mode declared. Forest fire affected two settlements. More than 1000 tourists were evacuated from emergency zone.

  9. Austria for the first time has declared a Russian diplomat persona non grata. According to Kronen Zeitung, for many years he was engaged in industrial espionage at an IT company, as reported by an Austrian citizen who called the Russian diplomat his curator. In response, the Russian Foreign Ministry has expelled Austrian Ambassador Johannes Aigner. Earlier, Russian diplomats were expelled from Slovakia and Norway on suspicion of espionage.

  10. The Norwegian Foreign Ministry declared Alexander Stekolshchikov, trade representative of the Russian Embassy in Oslo, “persona non grata” after a Norwegian citizen of Indian origin, Harsharn Singh Tatgar, admitted during interrogation that he passed industrial information to a Russian diplomat and received money from him for it. Tatgar was arrested during a meeting with a Russian diplomat at a pizzeria in Sagena in Oslo.

  11. Three Russian diplomats were expelled by Slovakia for abuse of Slovak visas during the murder in Berlin.

  13. A former US army green beret Peter Rafael Dzibinski Debbins living in northern Virginia has been arrested and charged with divulging military secrets about his unit’s activities during 15 years of contacts with Russian intelligence. Debbins provided the Russian intelligence agents with information about his chemical and Special Forces units. In 2008, after leaving active duty service, Debbins also provided Russian intelligence agents with the names of, and information about former Special Forces team members who could be recruited," the indictment of Department of Justice says. Debbins’ mother was born in USSR, and Debbins met his wife in Russian city of Chelyabinsk, where they were married in 1997, according to The Guardian. After graduating from college in Minnesota, Debbins returned to Russia in 1997, where he was assigned the code name, “Ikar Lesnikov,” by Russian intelligence. He subsequently signed a statement under his code name saying he wished to “serve Russia.” After beginning U.S. active-duty service in 1998, Debbins was deployed to South Korea to serve as a lieutenant in the 4th Chemical Company. While on leave, he traveled to Russia and provided his contacts in the intelligence service with U.S. defense information. “Debbins sought to help Russia, as he considered himself a loyal son of Russia,” the court documents say. After leaving the army in 2008, Debbins, dissatisfied with his military career, returned to Russia with intention of opening his own business. "He ended up working as part of a front created by a GRU officer, and subsequently continued to provide them with information, including classified intelligence about his unit’s missions in Georgia and Azerbaijan.”

  16. For all the excitement over the next big thing in lithium-ion batteries, the simple fact is that plain old water is the only large scale, long duration energy storage medium available today in the US and in many other parts of the world. The challenge is that water batteries, aka pumped hydropower, require expensive new infrastructure, which limits their application. That could be about to change, and it looks like the US Department of Energy is determined to be the change maker.

  25. US Department of State on President Erdogan’s Meeting With Hamas Leadership: “The United States strongly objects to Turkish President Erdogan hosting two Hamas leaders in Istanbul on August 22. Hamas is designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. and EU and both officials hosted by President Erdogan are Specially Designated Global Terrorists. The U.S. Rewards for Justice Program is seeking information about one of the individuals for his involvement in multiple terrorist attacks, hijackings, and kidnappings. President Erdogan’s continued outreach to this terrorist organization only serves to isolate Turkey from the international community, harms the interests of the Palestinian people, and undercuts global efforts to prevent terrorist attacks launched from Gaza."

  38. Pentagon: It’s time to bring microelectronics manufacturing to U.S. The U.S. government must entice companies to do more microelectronics manufacturing in the United States, the Pentagon’s undersecretary for acquisition and sustainment said Thursday. Working toward a more resilient microelectronics supply chain, while also addressing national security risks: “We can no longer clearly identify the pedigree of our microelectronics,” which are key to technologies like 5G as well as components in many weapons systems, Ellen Lord said. “Therefore, we can no longer ensure that backdoors, malicious code or data exfiltration commands aren’t embedded in our code.” The United States is one of three countries that has microelectronics manufacturing capabilities, but according to a 2016 report from the Congressional Research Service, American microelectronics manufacturers have increasingly moved microchip fabrication plants abroad.

  39. The Department of Energy and Microsoft said they were partnering to create AI tools for disaster response. The DOE has created the First Five Consortium, which refers to the critical importance of how first responders make decisions in the first five minutes after a disaster strikes.

    ⁃Wildfire prediction and fire line containment (which is especially timely at the moment)
    ⁃Damage assessment
    ⁃Search and rescue
    ⁃Natural disasters

  40. It was early April and the military services had a choice to make: Do we shut down initial entry training and risk our end strength numbers for years to come, or do we power through the COVID-19 pandemic and try to keep these close-quarters hordes of young people as safe and healthy as possible? At Air and Education Training Command, officials decided to take a week to shut down and reset, then come back, nearly full-steam ahead with some key modifications. “We directed our [military training instructors] to graduate a class one week early. They trained through the weekend, they met training objectives,” Maj. Gen. Andrea Tullos, who commands 2nd Air Force, told Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Tuesday at Lackland Air Force Base. ”At the same time, we told the recruiters: Don’t ship.” The modified BMT went from about 800 trainees per flight to between 400 and 480, allowing for smaller groups in classroom instruction and some room to space out in housing bays with about 40 trainees, rather than 60. The service has instituted deep-cleaning protocols, mandatory mask usage and cots arranged with pillows alternating on the left or right, so no one is in each other’s breathing radius while in bed. BMT also streamlined the uniform issue process. Rather than moving trainees through indoor stations to get each piece of clothing and pair of shoes, they are shuffled outside to pick up a pre-packed bag of items according to their sizes. After two weeks, the “restriction of movement” phase ends and they can get into more training around the base, including preparing for Basic Expeditionary Skills Training, in which a field test is required to graduate. For extra space, as well as quarantine facilities, a tent city went up in a parking lot on base. There, trainees who tested positive, and their close contacts, could spend two weeks in isolation. But otherwise, Air Force indoctrination went mostly as normal, with less down time and some sections shortened, like time spent on military drill and ceremony. The first two cohorts that went through BMT after mid-March had five confirmed cases of coronavirus, Maj. Gen. John DeGoes, head of the 59th Medical Wing, told Military Times. At that point, tests were only available for symptomatic trainees who could confirm close contact with a diagnosed case. Since that point, and post-reset, there have been 30 more positive trainees, 29 of whom were asymptomatic at the time they were tested. That’s about a 0.5 percent infection rate in the 3,500 trainees who have gone through BMT since the beginning of the pandemic.

  41. US home construction surges 22.6%, third monthly increase. Construction of new U.S. homes surged 22.6% last month as homebuilders continued to bounce back from the coronavirus pandemic.

  42. Back-to-school search for virtual school supplies could lead to desk and chair shortages. Back-to-school desks for kids are in high demand, and it could lead to a shortage online.

  43. 39% of younger millennials say the Covid-19 recession has them moving back home. About 39% of younger millennials (defined here as ages 24 to 29) say they are either planning or have already moved back in with their parents because of the economic downturn.

Grand Solar Minimum News:

  1. Patagonia is facing a mini-ice age as thousands of livestock lives are lost. They are saying, “Decreased carbon in the atmosphere because people haven’t been driving around as much due to COVID-19… “ These are Grand Solar Minimum conditions that happen in a predictable pattern with predictable consequences. Global food shortage is coming. Prepare.

  2. More than 100,000 livestock animals perish as intense snowstorms hit Patagonia, with 70% of the highland flock at risk. There are have been massive losses of sheep in the Patagonia highlands because of intense snowstorms. In the high areas of the Argentine Patagonia Rio Negro province, this could cause the death of 70% of the flock. Ranchers and laborers do what they can to save the animals, with their bare hands, without tools or protection, moving the frozen snow in search of the sheep.

  3. The Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Nation called an extraordinary meeting of the Federal Agricultural Council (CFA) to discuss actions that help mitigate the heavy damage that the wave of snowfalls that is shaking the Patagonia is leaving on livestock production South of the country.

  4. The intense snowfalls that are registered in Patagonia not only affected the herds of cows and sheep of the cattle producers of the region, but the guanacos were the victims of the inclement weather that took place throughout the week.

  5. In two tweets that went viral over the weekend you can see the animals feeling the severity of the cold and heavy snowfalls that have been manifesting these days.

  6. Strong snow storms are wreaking havoc in Argentina’s Patagonia, bringing down power lines and blanketing the region. A statement from the Argentine Rural Confederations regrets that the return to the harsh Patagonian winters, after a time of great drought, “highlights the terrible infrastructure conditions that dominate that region: routes, roads, sewers, telephone and internet communication services, gas, electricity, which collapse in the face of the phenomenon and complicate the attempts to rescue residents, families, workers and producers, as well as the losses of property in a deterioration process that will be aggravated in the coming weeks.”

  7. The polar air mass from Antarctica plummeted temperatures in much of the Brazilian territory, as well as in Argentina and Uruguay, and threatens to cause a record cold in several cities until Monday. Cruelest snowfalls in the last 20 years where animals literally freeze to death. Half buried in the snow without being able to move. This is also happening in Brazil and Chile. In Chile, the temperatures are the lowest they’ve been in 70 years. No one in the American media is reporting on this. Compare to the Doomsday Document by the British Government in which the Sun is doing limited release.
