(Gapingvoid Today)

I was and still I am a relatively happy individual because I had initiative(s), 
I liked to work and especially because I have discovered how to like what I must do. And I am speaking not only about dish washing. Writing this blog is an example- it is actually a means of survival the infinite and impossible task of the retired researcher. To mention that this is posting No. 1159 (the first was on Dec 10 2010) and before that I have written 437 weekly editions of the web search newsletter INFO KAPPA- for  a salary by the way.
Obviously the Rossi vs, Darden Trial is not a desirable or happy long-time action
and it could have been simply avoided by the early interruption of the 1MW-1year Test- if the case..
But now it is here, and the LENR people see it differently - the polarization is extreme
My opinion s well known- it has and will confirm the validity of the Rossi Technology.
Other people think it will show the technology is invalid, nada excess heat and it is  a scam. The unpleasant thing is that some people are very intolerant toward those with opposite opinions and succeed to hate them. I am peaceful actually but I answer to insults, as creatively I can. (Just now I read on  LENR Forum "Peter Gluck
who is totally confused- this because I wrote that the Exhibits of IH in the Trial are 
catastrophically weak and unconvincing and I have not told my opinion about their deplorable taxonomy- order, lack of it,  but I will)
Ok, but back to the main idea. Early morning I have received Item 50 at Pacermonitor of the Miami Court from Uwe  Doms. (paper 1a) very long now with 27 Exhibits not less than 271 pages...But suddenly I had a revelation- this trial is part of LENR, is determinant for the future of LENR. It is TRIAL a great one...and suddenly I renumbered good unforgettable movies about Trials Movies memorable for giant actors-i will tell only about three:
12 Angry Men (Henry Fonda), Inherit the Wind (the monkey trial) (Spencer Tracy, Fredrick March) and To kill a Mockingbird (Gregory Peck). Couldn't be the Miami Trial now evolving toward the phase of interrogatories, huge paperwork, presentations, witnesses, then in June 2017 the decisive phase of the Court with he Jury will start and the verdict will be due in some 6 months- a historic trial?. 
The movie, due to the 2030-ies could be entitled: "To Kill a Technology"- the actors are at the kindergarten now.
I decided to to take this Trial seriously, to think and speak in legalese- the trial is reality and it will be interesting.

1a) Good prospects for Leonardo Corp./Andrea Rossi lawsuit vs. Cherokee Investment Partners/Thomas Darden Update Sept 20, 2016

New Document 271 pages re the Rossi- Darden Trial https://thenewfire.files.wordpress.com/2016/06/50_rossi_vs_darden_et_al_second_amended_answer_with_all_exhibits_ocr.pdf

1b,c) Rossi vs IH: (Update: Sep. 9 20– James A. Bass now a Third Party in IH’s Counter Complaint)

 The briefing:
Amendment to H.R. 4909 National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 Offered by Congressman Walter B. Jones

In the appropriate place in the report to accompany H.R. 4909 insert the following new Directive Report Language:
 Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) Briefing 
The committee is aware of recent positive developments in developing low-energy nuclear reactions (LENR), which produce ultra-clean, low-cost renewable energy that have strong national security implications. For example, according to the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), if LENR works it will be a "disruptive technology that could revolutionize energy production and storage." The committee is also aware of the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency's (DARPA) findings that other countries including China and India are moving forward with LENR programs of their own and that Japan has actually created its own investment fund to promote such technology. DIA has also assessed that Japan and Italy are leaders in the field and that Russia, China, Israel, and India are now devoting significant resources to LENR development. To better understand the national security implications of these developments, the committee directs the Secretary of Defense to provide a briefing on the military utility of recent U.S. industrial base LENR advancements to the House Armed Services Committee by September 22, 2016. This briefing should examine the current state of research in the US, how that compares to work being done internationally, and an assessment of the type of military applications where this technology could potentially be useful.

Sept 22 is after tomorrow!

High temperature nanoplasmonics

Metallic nanostructures can be utilized as heat nano-sources which can find application in different areas such as photocatalysis, nanochemistry or sensor devices. Here we show how the optical response of plasmonic structures is affected by the increase of temperature. In particular we apply a temperature dependent dielectric function model to different nanoparticles finding that the optical responses are strongly dependent on shape and aspect-ratio. The idea is that when metallic structures interact with an electromagnetic field they heat up due to Joule effect. The corresponding temperature increase modifies the optical response of the particle and thus the heating process. The key finding is that, depending on the structures geometry, absorption efficiency can either increase or decrease with temperature. Since absorption relates to thermal energy dissipation and thus to temperature increase, the mechanism leads to positive or negative loops. Consequently, not only an error would be made by neglecting temperature but it would be not even possible to know, a priori, if the error is towards higher or lower values. © (2016) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
