No LENR events today just a few publications. CMNS, Vortex performing Spring hibernation (mainly) 
LENR Forum traveling toward radicalization- see please paper 2) - unusually pacifist for his author, but relevant.
The IH party after collapse of its crown proof- the famous  Exhibit 5 conceived by Joe Murray is trying to implement its unique possible solution- invalidating the ERV Report. By any means first of all loud statements as:

"the data on performance from Rossi/Penon is worthless"

"Rossi collected only daily totals in a handwritten log"

They forget the raw data on which the ERV Report is based- we have heard about some 600000 pages- a plausible number given the duration of the Test- over 5 millions of minutes.
In this  stage it is useless to try any discussion with the IH partisans they are too angry and immune to logic.

A process cannot be understood by stopping it.

Without tradition, art is a flock of sheep without a shepherd. Without innovation, it is a corpse. (Winston Churchill)
(the same with science and technology)


I am discussing many times about problem solving with my grandchildren. Usually the first rule is to define the problem, to understand it. However, there is a zeroth rule of problem solving:
Accept, embrace , like it, connect to it, consider it a fragment of your existence, live it. The zeroth rule  is valid for both mathematical  and real life problems.
It is especially applicable for problems on the far right side of the Medawar Zone -as LENR. 
For me the LENR problem is the creation and I apply the zeroth principle to it. I "love" it and I am trying to love it intelligently and creatively. That  means: to see it in context (maximum), connection (with its neighboring issues) in evolution (read please the first Motto and meditate upon it) and its integrality not extracting
small chunks of it, not applying 'divide et impera' to its parts, however respecting values and  understanding complexity and diversity. Trying desperately hard to create and maintain a holistic and holographic vision of LENR.

There are very serious problems with the zeroth principle of problem solving
in our field, cohorts of people driven by anything else as envy and hatred and actually not interested in solving the problem of LENR, the problem of new energy.
I still hope sincere and dedicated problem solvers will eventually prevail.

Dr. Rossi:

I saw the rules for Florida civil jury trials give below:

Civil Proceedings

There is a “strong presumption of openness” for civil trials in Florida. Barron v. Florida Freedom Newspapers, 531 So. 2d 113, 118-19 (Fla. 1988). A judge will only hold a closed civil trial in limited circumstances. For example, you may excluded from the trial to keep trade secrets safe, to protect national security, and to avoid substantial injury to innocent third parties, such as children in a divorce case. Moreover, the trial court will only close the proceedings if there is no reasonable alternative to closure and the closure is the least restrictive form necessary.

Do you know if your court proceedings will be open for the public to follow the trial?

Andrea Rossi
March 26, 2017 at 2:43 PM

Drew G.:
The proceedings will follow the rules.

A Manager’s Mirror, Episode I

Your success pillars: hardware, software, content, awareness.

If you are an experienced headline-news-reader, you may believe this is about IT.

It is not.

It is about focus for efficient management.

IT-like terminology just makes it short and simple.

Any computer-operated system needs both ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ to operate properly, and the quality of those makes a big difference in the user’s decision to purchase. While being mandatory for any state-of-the-art machinery, it is however no longer sufficient. In order to differentiate, the producer needs to deliver also quality content – added-value applications with friendly interface, which create ‘best user experience’. Finally, it does not matter if you have the best hardware, software and content if you keep this to yourself… you need to make sure that everyone is aware of that in order to purchase, enjoy and then further disperse the positive feed-back.

Apply now the same rationale to a human being – we are all born with unique hardware and software, develop content and build awareness all around us until the last day of our life. Most of us perpetuate the content and awareness for a while, even past the moment when our hardware and software has stopped functioning…

Can we apply the same to a profession? I believe so. The basis for this lies in the education and continuous learning.

First, there is a set of so-called ‘hard skills’ to be acquired as a pre-requisite by any individual who wishes to adhere to the profession. Then each of those individuals has a blend of unique so-called ‘soft skills’ that differentiate him/her from the other members in the way he/she does things in the area of human interaction. The set of skills needed vary significantly with the profession - for example the hard skills of an actor may represent soft skills for a doctor or mathematician. The backbone (or basic social survival kit) which transcends most of the professions is instilled to most of us from childhood to adolescence, while the adult life is all about further developing our own unique set of skills, according to the content we wish to contribute and the awareness we intend to raise in our environment.

Enlarging now from individual to collective self, I finally get to the point which is that wonderful complex system that a manager has to lead towards greatness nowadays, both in terms of content and awareness (no matter how you may specifically call them - profit, deliverables, bottom line, quantitative and qualitative results, regulatory constraints, team spirit, customer centric, social responsibility etc.).

Any manager, no matter how big a ship he/she needs to steer has a two-fold focus need – human resources and everything else. You cannot cross the street without the first one. The rest is all about the manager’s mandatory hard skills set, which should be a pre-requisite for his/her appointment.

In terms of mastering your team’s performance, it is all about integrating the limited resources at your disposal (hard and soft skills), by generating together credible proper content and facilitating awareness – both inside the team and towards external parties, so that you can add value to all the stakeholders involved. And the best way to do this is in a continuous flow motion, just like going around the world in a car. Set your itinerary, get your resources and passengers on board, check that all your mirrors are adjusted to maximise vision from all possible angles and… start moving! Drive courageously but keep your passengers safe (and make sure they feel that way!), adapt to your surrounding and maintain schedule. And… don’t forget to refuel and enjoy!

The longer the trip, the more you will need to make adjustments – to the car, itinerary or passengers. And when this happens, my advice is to concentrate on the future usefulness of needed changes. If you want to stay one step ahead of (real!) competitors you should get comfortable with an anticyclical approach. Romanians have a saying for this – responsible people build sleigh in the summer and carriage during winter.

In times of profits flowing and markets growing you may want to invest in expensive ‘hard’ components and content design while maintaining all the rest. In times of difficult survival and shrinking demand you should direct your scarce resources to ‘soft’ skills and awareness (including loyalty of best people!) while maintaining all the rest. Never forget that driving under difficult conditions requires the best set of skills and the most feasible (not fast!) car for survival. You should use hardship periods to unload unnecessary burden, but make sure you don’t lose top performance drivers in the process.

If you distribute your management priorities around those four pillars in an anticyclical and forward-looking manner, you will notice that your team members will start self-investing in their own upgrade to generate better content, to the benefit of the entire system.

Finally, even if you are not yet a team manager, you may find that the same logic can be applied to everything important in life, both in terms of personal and professional accomplishment. It helps turning dreams into plans and executing them without losing focus.

I know this is no easy challenge, because anticyclical approach actually requires abilities to understand the past and see the present as it is, with the purpose of anticipating the future. Which is actually the topic of the next episode…

Mottoes inspired by Russ George's blog paper

The living world has become impoverished. Species are being lost every day. Energy and other resources are nearing exhaustion. The environment is deteriorating. Pollution is everywhere. Climate is changing. Natural balances are threatened. (Christian de Duve)

I cannot look at a question and not try to find the answer, even if I don't know it. (Christian de Duve)

We know that once we stop learning and call ourselves learned, we become useless members of the scientific society. (Christian de Duve)

When I disappear, I will disappear; there'll be nothing left. (Christian de Duve)

It would be an exaggeration to say I'm not afraid of death, but I'm not afraid of what comes after, because I'm not a believer. (Christian de Duve)

Sunday is not an easy day for a must-blog-daily-to-survive-intellectually. No papers no news, or very few however extremely nasty disputes re the RvD litigation- again ad hominem - ad nauseam.  Uncontrollable diversity, the IH party attacks everything Rossi from any positions, doubts, denies,,accuses systematically, considers any possible error as fatal. However the results presented in the ERV core Report are solid and challenging.
It is the time even for these wannabe parallel-to-what-happens-in-the- Court fighters
to choose and work out their own counter-scenario to the scenario of Rossi and allies. This would be a sign of seriousness of going beyond and arrogant venomous Babel of blah-blah. Real proofs have to be solid not person-oriented accusations.
The SCENARIO can be based on ERRORS of instruments, measurements or on proving total  FAKE DATA. 
A basic question is ZERO EXCESS HEAT or not?
Actually I wrote about this on the forum but got no answer (yet) 
I doubt they can work systematically and united ; the hatred against Rossi helps but the lack of proofs makes the task impossible. Even for the very vocal group leaders

I am forwarding a very interesting link:

LENR Powered Electric Vehicles Nicolas CHAUVIN

Abstract –Current electric vehicles (EV) and fuel cell vehicles (FCEV) suffer from several limitations that prevent them from becoming a true commercial success.When available, kilowatt class LENR generators combined with modern thermoelectric conversion technology could enable designing new type of automobiles, being low cost,maintenance free and zero emission at the same time.In the present talk, we will discuss what are to current limitations of electric vehicles and battery technology, how LENR technology can propose an alternative to large battery storage on EV, what are the available compact solutions for energy harvesting and thermoelectric conversion from LENR thermal energy, what are the longer term design alternatives and finally what is the expected timeline to develop prototypes and commercial products

Image result for ad hominem quotationsImage result for ad hominem quotations

Inspired by the "vivid" discussions re the Rossi vs Darden litigation on the LENR Forum etc.


Still not much too write- a lot to read. 
On the RvD litigation thread/LENR Forum discussion degenerated- 95 %about persons 5% about the Plant/Technology. When this will return to the normal Pareto ratio 80/20 I will participate again. 
Re some technical issues, see please:
The star witness of IH, Joe Murray who said flow-meter half full actually knows it was full-full. He said stearn pipe 40mm, now perhaps 80mm not seen ' cause insulated.
Normally he had to add that for the steam with the parameters as in the plant 
the maximum flow is
- fior 40  mm- 108 kg/hr- 
- for 80mm-     437 kg/hr
and you need something as 140-160mm for the flow presented in he ERV Report.

The Murray fan declares more and more frequently "results of the report OBVIOUS fake'- his certainty- and puts in balance his total moral weight and prestige. Soon both will be negative, I predict..

The collection of childish insults hateful attacks on everybody not accepting IH's pseudo-proofs is increasing day by day. Actually unhappy, clumsy literature

My guess is that next week we will see great battles in the RvD litigation.

Dear Dr Andrea Rossi:
I read the mountain of papers published by your attorneys and IH and it is clear that IH has published no evidence at all that your plant does not work, because all they write are assumptions, while, on the contrary, you have published evidence that your plant works based on evidence; it also is clearly put in evidence that Darden had from the beginning knowledge that you were also the director of the plant of JM, as well as that the test on course was the performance test, all this based on documents indisputably traded between you and IH.
You are going to win the case for sure, if all IH has got is what they published. The smoking gun against them is that while they collected hundred millions od dollars thanks to the visits of their investors to the plant.
