You know all of the nonsense we post to get people to look at our special blogs??? Well THIS is the sort of thing we should be spreading. Excellent news.
Battery technology is one of the major hurdles to the mass adoption of electric vehicles, and batteries that lose their capacity are also the scourge of our gadget-filled lives. One potential solution to this problem has recently been announced by a German research center, which claims to have produced a long-life and high-power battery.
The issue with batteries is that they lose capacity and reliability over time as they are charged and discharged. The very chemical reactions that make lithium-ion an effective technology also ultimately lead to its undoing, eventually causing capacity fade and lower rates that kill the battery. This problem is compounded at high temperatures, like those in electric vehicles.
But the Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research (its German acronym is ZSW), a non-profit research consortium, says that its newly developed batteries last as long, or longer than, most people own a car, meaning that…

On Sunday last week I had the opportunity to go walkabout throught the streets of London. I discover many fascinating places, buildings, sculptures and historic streets and parks on these excursions. One of the places I stumbled across was King’s College London where I found this delightful statue in the gardens.
Something to get us going – I found this on HuffingtonPosts website.
Despite the many centuries of analysis and deliberation by art historians and critics, it appears two Tudor portrait paintings have been harboring creative secrets, until now.
Infrared reflectography and x-radiography analysis has revealed a fully worked up version of The Flagellation of Christ painted beneath the surface of a 1601 portrait of the Lord Treasurer and poet Thomas Sackville, 1st Earl of Dorset.
Very interesting stuff.
