February 20, 2018 | Lifestyle | J.Battaglia
Thermoelectric devices, which can generate power when one side of the device is a different temperature from the other, have been the subject of much research in recent years.

Instead of requiring two different temperature inputs at the same time, the new system takes advantage of the swings in ambient temperature that occur during the day-night cycle.


Cause Does Not Always Precede Effect - Your Present Influences Your Past
February 19, 2018 | Consciousness | A.Becker
