Dear Andrea,
Your 1 MW E-cat consists of four 250 kW “Tigers” that could be run separately.
Your smallest building block for the QuarkX is in the size of 20 W. Have you yet decided of what size the commercial building block of QuarkX that can be run separately will be? On the one hand you have experience of 250 kW units but on the other hand you don’t have experience of putting together over 10000 QuarkX units yet. My guess is that you first will work in your R&D with a couple of hundred QuarkX units put together to verify the control loops and the heat transfer.
Smaller number of QuarkX units with its own temperature transducer, amplifier and control loop will be easier to control, larger number of QuarkX units for a single control loop will be cheaper but not as easy to control. I understand that the size of the QuarkX is also derived from the possibility to control multiple units with one control loop, but a lot of R&D must be done before having a commersial design.
Of course you understand how much work is left, but I write this for the readers also to understand it and not to wish a Home QuarkX Heater for Christmas this year (or even next year). Realistically, QuarkX Home Heater for selected markets could be available Christmas 2018, if everything works well (F8). Am I right?
Best Regards,
Karl-Henrik

Your insight is intelligent, but we must make a distinction: for the industrial application I am convinced that 2017 will be the yesr, but for the domestic applications the situation is made much more difficult by the certification issues.

AXIL DIXIT

Regarding: "Cold Fusion is a victim of its own weakness all the other attacks are only aggravating factors"

This weakness is entirely understandable and even to be expected. There is a time for everything and LENR's time has not yet come. These first stumbling and befuddled LENR explorers were dealing with issues that were far over their heads. It will take a century or two before the new foundations of the science will be laid down to an extent sufficient that makes LENR's plausibility generally acceptable. Until that future day, we continue to stubbornly poke at the new fire with are pitiful tools in a random and unfocused speculation and look for some fortuitous outburst of emerging sparks just like our Bushmen ancestors of our dim and distant past who once had done the same indiscriminate, nonspecific, and haphazard prodding to the old fire. So don't be discouraged for such is the nature of the eternal struggle of humanity against the indistinct and mysterious nature of the cosmos.

DEC 03, 2016 LENR AND THE CONCEPT OF VICTIM

MOTTOImage result for quotations victimImage result for quotations victim



DAILY NOTES|


a)  A musical discovery- not LENR

Yesterday, after sending out EGO OUT I wanted to relax- so Judith and i watched MEZZO TV- classical music. Surprise a very original musical piece that captivated us immediately, unknown - already started so we did not know what it it was- my wife is talented and knows a lot. Who is the composer/ We have tried with the Shazam https://www.shazam.com/ - it works for a surprisingly broad range of musical pieces classic and not- this time it failed to show what we were listening to. 
The piece was marvelous, very sad and I told it is about "The burial of the gravedigger", Judith said she believes it can be by Stravinsky.
And she was right- using the Web we discovered it was Funeral song by him, lost for 100 years and recently rediscovered:  
http://www.prospektmag.com/2016/11/long-awaited-return-lost-funeral-song-stravinsky-masterpiece/

Revelation- I have to pay more attention to the music of Igor Stravinsky - and of his mentor- Rimsky Korsakoff


b) LENR and victims.

I am still trying to convince my friends and colleagues about the real, fundamental cause of the great troubles of Cold Fusion during its early history. By the way just these days we can read a lot about that period.
It is a trend to antropomorphise the evolution, giving priority to the human factors and to misjudge the scientific-technical ones.
It was a classic,  4 columns attacking the newborn science:-
-  hot fusion scientists, frustrated by their own insuccesses;
-  fossil energy supporters;
- arrogant theoretical physics dogmatists;
- all round maniacal denialists of everything new.

However all these could have been defeated by  solid, reproducible good experimental results however the fifth column was and remained up to today the fifth column:
- inherent incurable weakness of excess heat results (sporadic, weak. transient, uncertain, unpredictable, barely manageable) due to the incompleteness of the
PdD LENR cell and system. Cold Fusion is a victim of its own weakness all the other attacks are only aggravating factors
Fifth column is a concept, metaphor one year older then myself:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_column

However I have received a long list of the victims of Andrea Rossi- you can see it here:
http://egooutpeters.blogspot.ro/2016/12/dec-02-2016-lenr-info.html?showComment=1480735691934#c2942018523281356993
10 categories, Pweet, the author  has used a taxonomy probably inspired from Borges: 
http://wiki.c2.com/?BorgesClassificationOfAnimals

Repeated things, however interesting hat the detractors and character assassins 
of Rossi also constitute a category of his victims. Or Industrial Heat which refused contractual payment when a valid and unquestioned contract existed.

Journal of Physical Science and Application 6 (4) (2016) 1-7
http://m-work.cn/Public/uploads/Contribute/5824152703d09.pdf
Thomas E. Ward 
Techsource Incorporated, 20251 Century Blvd., Germantown, Maryland 20874, U.S.A Abstract: 
Tritium in the environment comes from several sources: anthropogenic nuclear weapons and commercial nuclear reactors, atmospheric cosmic-ray production, and geotritium. Geotritium and its decay product 3 He is found in the earth’s magmatic system evidenced by tritium emission from volcanoes and 3 He anomalies associated with MORB (Mid-Ocean Ridge Basalts), OIB (Oceanic Island Basalts) and deep mantle plumes. The 3 He can be accounted for assuming a radiogenic 3 3 T He ( ) component as opposed to a primordial source. It is proposed that the 3 d pe t ( ,)   weak interaction fusion (WIF) reaction (Q = 5.474 MeV) is the source for both the geotritium and anomalous 3 He found in nature. The radiogenic lifetime for the WIF reaction, 3 e dp e t     , in a metal hydride geologic environment, such as FeH/FeD in the core and mantle of the earth, was calculated to be 9 1.61 10 . dep   x yr The anomalous 3 He produced by the WIF reaction, a radio chronometer, was used to correlate and date mantle basalt processes deep within the earth. The p pe d ( ,)   WIF reaction (Q = 1.442 MeV) with a lifetime 12 2.54 10 . pep   x yr was also examined as a possible geochronometer for the formation interval of the oceans, the duration of the earth’s melting and degassing prior to the formation of the oceans. The formation age of the oceans was determined to be 3.93 billion years ago in good agreement with geologic magmatic activity and continental crust formation.

A HEARTFUL MESSAGE FROM RUSS GEORGE


I was delighted to read the new paper in the Journal Nature about ‘fusion’ in the core of the Earth.  http://www.nature.com/articles/srep37740

What a delight to see this new paper. So the Journal Nature has now come around from its flagrant condemnation and ridicule of all things cold fusion to publishing about it being the source of heat in the inner Earth (and other planets of course). I can testify that I engaged in a discussion of this very mechanism with Martin Fleischmann at the very first meeting on cold fusion while he and Giuliani Preparata and I shared a bottle of wine to cool our tempers if not our passion. Here’s a link to my blog post about my late friends, 

The dastardly pundits at Nature deserve a special place in hell for their avaricious dogmatic approach to discovery of the mysteries of Nature. I am quite sure Maddox is occupying a well-deserved spit there now. The great tragedy of science is that most of the community behave like gentlemen but of course being the real substance of the stew of knowledge they are not what floats to the top, what floats is the scum and there is no greater repository of the scum and shysters of Science than the editors and publishers and owners of the Journal Nature.

Within the microcosm of the ecology of atoms the Earthly core conditions described in this paper are not at all uncommon. That is why cold fusion is and always has and will be a principal part of behavior of hydrogen in nature.

17 Important Innovation Lessons From One Of The World's Great Architecture Firms

We have discussed about these subjects (decisions and chess) and i like the idea:

You make more risky choices as the day wears on, chess study suggests
By Devika G. Bansal
Dec. 2, 2016 , 4:00 PM
http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2016/12/you-make-more-risky-choices-day-wears-chess-study-suggests?utm_campaign=news_weekly_2016-12-02&et_rid=33799724&et_cid=1033653
Early birds and night owls have radically different daily habits. But a new study suggests they both share one trait: As the clock ticks, their decisions get dicey. Neuroscientists examined the quality of moves in more than one million games of chess in an online database. They charted the decisions of 99 prolific players by gauging the time they took for each move and its usefulness in leading to a victory—factors that impact games like high-speed tiebreakers in the World Chess Championships, which took place in New York earlier this week. As expected, early risers played more games in the morning, whereas night owls were active at dusk and beyond. But both sets of players took longer for each move and made better game choices early in the day and soon after they woke up. Come evening, their game play quickened by 2.5%, while their moves grew less effective by the same margin on average. The study revealed a pervasive switch in decision strategy from safe play in the morning to riskier—faster and less successful—moves at sundown, the team will report next month in Cognition. The finding shows we may have greater control over our decisions earlier in the day and soon after we wake up, regardless of when we prefer to sleep. As we grow tired, our bodies’ need for sleep could dictate the quality of our choices—no matter how focused we think we might be.

there are a few new entries in my bibliographies, see
them here: http://www.dieterbritz.dk/fusweb/index.php
under What's New and the biblios.

I think I might be missing articles now and I might
stop doing this.

You may or may not like the Krivit book. It is full
of historical details, all referenced. His main message
is that "it" is not cold fusion, but transmutation and he
prefers "LENR". He firmly believes in the Larsen theory
of the transmutation, by slow neutrons. These have the
same problem with energetic gamma emissions as d-d fusion
and a similar explanation of how they are converted to heat,
it seems to me - collective effects.

A rather long paper starting with the prediction-necessity of rreplacing the existen nuclear energy sources with LENR. It presents the start of history of LENR- Fleischmann and Pons- their lost battles - also the history and pre-history f LENR in the Soviet Union and now Russia. A great part is about the Andrea Rossi breakthrough. It continues and ends with geo- and geo-oil political considerations and what has to do the Russian scientists, researchers and decision makers. What has impressed me is the trouble made by the inquisitorial Commission on Pseudoscience, I did not knew that this  organization is so active and influential- I need more information.

I inform you with sadness that my question of yesterday regarding the organization of ICCF21 by IH, seems to be a victim of Derailitis- a standard sickness of the forums (not necessary o define) - the discussion was deviated up to e.g. the intellectual virtues and performances of Mary Yugo and to a exercise in meta cognition. Some forumists wanted to correlate the answer Y/N- when? with the potential winner of the Rossi vs Darden lawsuit

I was captivated by the title (not the content) of a paper- in Russian BTW:

Two ideas;
a) I sincerely think history of classic LENR  needs re-construction, I have explained mny times why and how.
b) I see the efforts of the IH part to reconstruct/rewrite the history of the 1MW test as futile, there are too amny data, mesurements, facts, witnesses, proofs supporting the true history of it.

Excess Thermal Energy In The Cell Loaded With Mixture of Ni Powder And Li[AlH4]
Authors: Nguyen-Kuok, Shi; Malakhov, Yury; Korotkikh, Ivan

http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2016APS..GECMW6027N
Publication:
APS Gaseous Electronics Conference 2016, abstract #MW6.027
Publication Date: 09/2016
Abstract
Interest has significantly increased in the study of Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions. Especially after the publication of the test results from Andrea Rossi's high-temperature heat source that operates on a mixture of Nickel powder and Lithium Aluminum Hydride. Initial experiments showed that the reaction is unstable; occurring in a narrow temperature range (in practice, it is outside the melting temperature of the fuel materials). In this work we describe the design of the heat generator, the calorimetric method for measuring the amount of heat energy. The results demonstrate excess heat during heating the powder mixture of Ni and Li[AlH4] to temperatures ranging from 1030-1140 °C. The generator did not expose an X-ray photographic emulsion.

AXIL DIXIT 
Superconductivity is central to the LENR reaction because it brings coherence as an indispensable catalytic factor to the LENR reaction. 

The LENR reaction is produced by a greatly amplified weak force interaction with matter that destabilizes nuclear matter through coherence. 

Like any other subatomic particle, protons and neutrons are inherently unstable. They just appear stable because of their long half lives. The supersymmetry (SUSY) prediction of the grand unification theories, such as the SU(5) Georgi–Glashow model and SO(10) is on the order of 10e34–10e36 yr

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proton_decay

Particle physics is based on finding supersymmetry to complete the standard model. Not finding proton decay would mean that the standard model was wrong.

To produce proton decay through coherence, it is important to find the conditions where superconductivity persists at high temperatures up to 7000K where some instances of the LENR reaction have been observed. 

In this system, an interesting observation about how the weak force is operating in LENR

newinflow.ru/pdf/Klimov_Poster.pdf

"Spectrometer X-123SDD records soft X radiation (0.1 - 30 keV) in heterogeneous plasmoid. X-receiver is arranged at different cross sections of PVR testing section and cross sections behind nozzle at L = 1 ÷ 100 cm from it. 

• Heterogeneous plasmoid behind PVR nozzle is γ-radioactive. Soft X-radiation 100 - 10000 eV from this plasmoid. X-radiation decrement is very small (radiation intensity decrease is about 20% at L = 100 cm)"


At the very tip of the reaction nozzle, there is gamma radiation produced by the weak force decay. But over a very short time as the plasma moves away from the reaction nozzle at supersonic speeds, even though the reaction temperature is initially 7000K or more, the level of radiation is reduced in stages until at L = 100cm, the x-ray energy level is nominal at 30 keV. This nominal 30 keV x-ray level is the level reported by Defkalion in their system using spark discharge.

Other systems using laser irradiation of various transition metal nanostructures show both the formation of tritium and its rapid decay as a simultaneous operation. The laser brings coherence to the LENR reaction as a catalyst for weak force amplification.

See

arxiv.org/ftp/arxiv/papers/1306/1306.0830.pdf

"Tritium is another unstable isotope with half-life of 12.2 years. It would be interesting to induce its beta-decay by exposure to laser radiation, as it was done previously for other nuclides. In this work we demonstrate for the first time the nuclear synthesis and decay of Tritium under laser exposure of various targets in D2O."
I like these laser based experiments that reveal in the most basic terms what is happening in the bare bones LENR reaction.

Summary:
By studying the light emitted from an extraordinarily dense and strongly magnetized neutron star, astronomers may have found the first observational indications of a strange quantum effect, first predicted in the 1930s. The polarization of the observed light suggests that the empty space around the neutron star is subject to a quantum effect known as vacuum birefringence.

NOV 30, 2016 LENR- ABOUT MAKING DECISIONS

MOTTO

DAILY NOTES

Dear Readers,

Old age is the antonym of life, not death says Simone de Beauvoir- however if you are awake, you care and you try hard you still can discover significant ideas and events. I am trying to write about something different each day- 
For this Wednesday the word du jour was already found :DECISION. I have not written about it but due to my life-long love for chess as shown here:

http://egooutpeters.blogspot.ro/2012/04/memories-from-chess-club.html

I have enjoyed following the World Chess Championship, challenger Sergey Karjakin confronting the champion, Magnus Carlsen. Too many draws and today it will take 
place the tie-break, rapid chess and blitz games. Each move is a decision, irreversible and sometimes fatal. I am painfully missing the good chess players specific memory and so for me chess remains a tough school of making decisions.

However the same word has appeared in an other, more LENR connected place.
You well know how important ICCFs are for our oppressed and not happy field, therefore the organizer of the next International Conference on Cold Fusion, No 21 is of paramount importance
At the past meeting ICCF20 it was announced that Industrial Heat will organize the coming one, at Raleigh in June 2018. However, this information was not confirmed by the company. And today, on the LENR Forum, this message could be read

Dewey Weaver, Professional

I wanted to take this opportunity to clear up the confusion around ICCF21. Last summer, IH was asked to consider hosting ICCF21 in Raleigh which was a great honor in and of itself. IH agreed to do so on a tentative basis with a final decision expected in the Spring of 2017.
I'd like to ask everyone to be patient in the interim.
Thank you,
Dewey


I have fast- reacted this way:

Peter Gluck, Verified User

Dear Dewey,
This is very interesting because it implies a decision.
You perhaps know my life slogan written for the "20 Rules of Real life Problem Solving"
"I think, therefore I exist. I take decisions, therefore I live. I solve problems, therefore I live with a purpose"
Decisions are of vital importance- ergo I have decided to write here first despite my former decision to restrict publishing to EGO OUT and to neutral or undecided sites.

As you well know, I was unable to understand many of IH/Cherokee's decisions during the 1MW-1 year Test and during the legal conflict with Rossi, up to today. A long list, not to repeat here.

However I do not like false correlations and associations or mixing incompatible things. So I think, this decision of the Company has NOTHING to do with the evolution. situation and perspectives pf the unhappy Trial. True?

However in this case it is difficult to understand the Cunctator mentality and attitude- why to procrastinate foe approx 9 months such a clear Y/N decision?
IH is supporting LENR, claims to be the main funder
of scientifically correct LENR research, cares for LENR as the main source of energy in the future of Mankind.
Even if breakthroughs will appear- by teams belonging to IH the field will continue to be in progress and development so ICCFs must continue. It can be lack f imagination but I am not able to see any reason for IH to NOT organize ICCF21.
As former lecturer in "Management of Technology" at the local Romanian-US University of EcoManagement- I consider that fast decisions are a must for an agile prosperous company. Postponing is anything but NOT good for the prestige of IH and it even deconsolidates tits position in the world of new energy.
Please let's distinguish this problem from the Conflict!
A final negative decision would be worse than demoralizing.
Thank you in advance,
Peter


The discussion stillcontinues here:
https://www.lenr-forum.com/forum/index.php/Thread/4394-Industrial-Heat-to-Organize-ICCF21-in-Raleigh-NC/?pageNo=5
however I still have not received an answer re why this simple and natural decision is so difficult
. See please the first Motto- your decisions depend on your values, and IH is deeply dedicated to the progress of LENR, so... The other Motto warns against indecision- if there are no serious reasons for it...and they do not exist.
But today we have Motto+:
A reader hiding under the nickname Pweet has offered me two fine mottoes for today and I will use them; I do not exactly what he had in his mind with:
 "Do not confuse action with motion."
but it is perfect for an other decision of IH- we were informed about by the most vocal supporter of IH: when IH has realized that the 1MW test does not go well, they deciced to continue but have complained to some people- but we are certain only about the vocal supporter- no one supported him ith a "me too!"
No problem with Pweet's other candidate of Motto:
We appear to be going nowhere"
It is easy to see this is about the 27 Exhibits sent by IH to the Court, twice.
They all appear as bantam weight proofs, but using a more precise scale  you can state they have actually negative weight. QED!!

NOTE.
Re this paper, I have the permission to cite here Andrew Meulenberg's opinion:\

This kind of demonstrated molecular confinement (to 1-dimension) allows 'hot' water to turn to ice at >100C (rather than at 0C). 


What similar confinement structures allow CF? Besides Ed Storms 'crevice' model (confinement to 2-dimensions, perhaps 1-D), we have my "linear-H" model (confinement to 1-dimension).

LENR IN CONTEXT-1

Ultrafast imaging reveals existence of 'polarons'
Date:November 29, 2016
Source:Brookhaven National Laboratory
Summary:
Scientists have found definitive evidence that the movement of electrons has a direct effect on atomic arrangements, driving deformations in a material's 3-D crystalline lattice in ways that can drastically alter the flow of current. Finding evidence for these strong electron-lattice interactions, known as polarons, emphasizes the need to quantify their impact on complex phenomena such as superconductivity (the ability of some materials to carry current with no energy loss) and other promising properties.
