Passionate about science and especially that related to solar and wind? Now you can generate free electricity using only the sun for energy .
In short, using light and heat from the sun you can create free electricity using a simple system.The best part is that everyone can create the engine that will create free electricity using heated water in special tanks at a temperature above 20 degrees Celsius , and using solar panels to produce electricity.
A huge amount of solar energy reaching the earth's surface every day and it can be used to generate free electricity within days. This energy can be captured and used as heat in solar thermal applications, or can be converted directly into electricity using photovoltaic cells (CF).

During history, people used the sun for different uses and in many ways but now we are finally able to use the sun for energy. Today, solar thermal energy is used in almost every climate to provide a safe and inexpensive energy source. In recent years solar thermal energy is used to create steam that powered electricity generating turbines.Read More »from How to Use the Sun for Energy
People have used sunlight for different uses for centuries but the concept itself is able to use the sun for energy . Thermo-solar power came in 1767 when Swiss scientist Horace de Saussure invented the first solar collector, or "hot box"that was able 100 % to use the sun for energy without any modern technology.
'Solar -Thermal' technologies are capable to use the sun heat for energy using sunlight to produce hot water, electricity and to heat some homes. Solar technologies range from simple residential water heating system to very large plants generating electricity.

Industrialized animal production has had a dramatic impact on society, human health and the environment.
Modern animal husbandry is a major factor in water pollution, contributing animal waste, antibiotics, hormones and a witch's brew of chemicals from tanneries, fertilizers and pesticides from feed crops.
In the final decades of the twentieth century, almost five million family farms were replaced by large-scale manufacturing operations.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency these concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFO) confine thousands of animals in a single facility and generate a staggering 300 million tons of waste annually
The waste is funneled into massive lagoons that emit ammonia, toxic hydrogen sulfide and methane gases. These cesspools often break, leak or overflow, sending dangerous microbes, nitrate pollution and drug resistant bacteria into the nation's water supply.
Almost 40 percent of the world's grainRead More »from Factory Farming, Unnatural, Unhealthy and Unsustainable

There are two hemispheres in the brain: the left and the right. Humans engage the left hemisphere more now than ever.
Left-brain activity includes verbal, analytical and intellectual thought. Activities include thinking, solving problems and organizing. An over-active left-brain, however, can often result in insomnia, fatigue, incessant mental activity and even high blood pressure.
Right brain activity is emotional and intuitive. It is the side of the brain that is in charge of behavior. Self-hypnosis and meditation stimulate right brain activity. The more you practice right brain activities, the more at peace you will feel emotionally.
Meditation practice results in the ability to induce states of deep relaxation, which translates into rejuvenation of the body/mind almost like rebooting a computer.
By becoming a quiet observer of the thoughts of the mind, the very act of witnessing from an objective distance canRead More »from Why Practice Meditation and Self-Hypnosis?

Recent testing of mercury concentrations in three national brands of canned tuna found that "55 percent of all tuna examined was above the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's safety level for human consumption." And the problem appears to be getting worse.
Previous studies in 1993 and 2004 showed concerning levels of mercury contamination in canned tuna, but not as high as it is now. VIDEO: Which brand of tuna has the most mercury?
Given the average level of mercury pollution found in canned tuna, researchers suggest that your average nine year old would exceed the EPA limit, even if they only ate one can of tuna every 6 weeks!
They conclude: "These results indicate that stricter regulation of the canned tuna industry is necessary to ensure the safety of sensitive populations such as pregnant women, infants, and children."
Some question whether the federal safety limits are sufficient. A recent review from researchers at HarvardRead More »from Mercury Testing Recommended Before Pregnancy

Dark Circles and Puffy Eye Relief
After you've enjoyed a cup of green tea - or two - let the tea bags cool and place one over each closed eye. Tea contains polyphenol particles known as tannins. Tannins are an astringent and are able to shrink living tissue, including human skin. Green tea bags can reduce swelling and tighten the skin around the eyes by reducing the dilation of the blood vessels under the eyes.
