Nikola Tesla - The Untold Story

Just in case you were wondering. We can get plenty of free energy with today's technology. And it's about time we start doing it the sustainable way or we may find ourselves in some serious trouble. We would just like to share with you a friend of ours Nikola Tesla. Here is his "untold" story. You won't find much of this in the mainstream reports. This is not everything... But its a great tribute to a wonderful man that has helped invent so many devices that help your every life. Without this man ... who knows where we would be.

How to turn soda cans into solar panels

How to turn soda cans into solar heating panels

Make sure to share this article with friends and family. Information is worth more than silver or gold.

Here is a natural way to make solar panels. Not so much related to health. But this is way too cool not to share. We hope this inspires a few of you.

Peter Rowan left his job as a "corporate weenie" in 2010 to live a life with less stuff and fewer expenses and with more time to pursue his dreams. Since downsizing his life, he's begun writing fiction from home (in addition to a teaching gig) so for a bit more privacy, this year he decided to single-handedly convert the family's unused garage into his off-grid writing retreat. Crafting it mostly out of repurposed materials, he decided to heat it using a home-made, recycled can solar panel.
After collecting 275 cans (soda, juice, mineral water and beer), he began to drill holes into the ends, glue them together and fit them into a box crafted from plywood and 2 by 4's. Adding a bit of black spray paint and some plexiglass, he created his home-made solar panel. He salvaged a couple of fans from an old computer to create a system for pushing cold air into the solar panel and pushing the hot air out and into his office.
In this video, Mary Rowan used her iphone to film her husband's month-long process building a solar heater with recycled cans. Granted Seattle may not be the ideal spot for solar, but Peter says that it seems to heat up the space by about 5 or 6 degrees even on a "crummy day" and when the sun is out it can provide too much heat.

Strawberries:  Strawberries have anticancer properties.  They can also help protect organs and tissue in the body from the assault of oxidative damage.  Strawberries are thought to reduce cellular inflammation which can help to prevent some serious diseases and slow down the aging process.  This particular fruit is also known to promote eye health, boost the immune system, and helps with bone health.

Raspberries:  A good source of iron and folate, raspberries are known to promote healthy blood cell production.  Raspberries contain vitamin C, also known as the detox vitamin, which eliminates harmful impurities from the blood stream.  These berries are heart friendly, being low in calories and free of cholesterol and sodium, they can make a delicious guilt free snack.  Raspberries are also loaded with antioxidants and anticancer compounds.
