London startup Skipping Rocks Lab has developed a package of the future, which can become an excellent replacement for plastic cups, bags, and bottles.
Approximately 780 million people live without access to fresh water, and a growing global population, coupled with climate change, threatens to grow. So technology can help.
The Other Fork in the Road
by Eliza Donavan
I’m writing this after a conversation that some friends and I had about the tech that we had to live with, and especially microwave ovens. The story about that one is particularly important in understanding how things are decided for us, as opposed to our collective decision of what to use, and what to discard.
Let’s Cash Our Reality Check!

One of the precepts of physics is that all energy eventually turns into heat through entropy. Heat, other than the infrared heat that we are familiar with, is also molecular motion or vibration. We are all familiar with the term “global warming”, and we are also told it is due to burning fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions. This is partially correct, but not the whole story.
Nature is truly a wondrous phenomenon. It is self-governing as it orchestrates a complex eco system which provides for all living beings that inhabit its domain. It has taught mankind ways to further their own development. As time progressed, the focus of man shifted from nature to technology, leaving behind a sustainable path to development for a destructive approach. There are a few individuals who recognized this flaw in our ways and tried to learn from nature itself to negate the harmful effects of technology. Their aim is to derive benefit from nature while causing minimal or no disturbance to the natural order. Viktor Schauberger, an Austrian man of many talents, was one such individual. To restrict him to a particular title would be a disservice to his work. You can call him an inventor, a scientist, a philosopher, an environmentalist and much more. The reality is that his work encompassed multiple fields and revolved around the simple fact of learning from nature and preserving it in its original form.
Historically, structures have long being considered as important symbols that signify deep meaning. A popular theory and belief is that some particular shapes have strong links to psychic energy. Amongst such shapes are the hexagon, sphere (dome) and the pentagon which may possess the capability to amplify the energy of the materials contained within them. Historical sites are often noted to be structured in such shapes. But the most iconic and famous of these shapes is the pyramid. Pyramid is known to possess miraculous abilities and reap great benefits for those that fall under its physical confines. We will explore the origins of this assumed psychic energy of pyramids. Starting with historical background, efforts will be made to understand the lore behind the pyramid. Moving ahead, we will fast forward and view the presence of pyramids in the present day. To round off our discussion, a couple of examples (namely the ability to preserve things and sharpen objects) of pyramid’s capabilities will be highlighted as well.
Magnetism: A wondrous phenomena
Magnetism is a naturally occurring phenomena that has been a source of benefit to us all. This originates from magnetic fields created by moving charged particles or the magnetic moments of elementary particles. Like gravity, the magnetism has an effect on everything present on Earth because Earth itself acts like a magnet and has both North and South poles like any other magnet. This has allowed the use of compass for navigation where the magnet of the compass interacts with the magnetic field of the Earth. In general, magnetism has been a key part of many scientific breakthroughs and industrial applications.
The human mind, despite advancements in technology, remains shrouded in mystery. The primary reason for such ambiguity is the fact that the limits of the human mind are yet to be discovered. The idea of unlocking new abilities of the mind is fascinating to say the least. One such ability is the psychic power that our brain may possess. While it is still considered as improbable in most scientific quarters, it is not ruled out completely. On the other hand, it has generated a huge buzz in mainstream media as various popular TV shows and movies explore the capabilities of the human mind. The abilities showcased are generally quite extravagant in nature. Ranging from mind control to telekinetically moving items but like all good fiction, it has some roots in reality. We may not be able to achieve those particular acts using our power of thought but we can still achieve mind boggling acts. The Kozyrev mirror may be our gateway to unlocking such abilities and who knows, maybe a lot more.
Water is one of the most essential means for the survival of life. It supports our eco system by acting as its life force as it circulates throughout its entirety. Purely from a human perspective, apart from the basic drinking purpose, we use water for various industrial and agricultural applications to supplement the quality of our lives. However, due to our carelessness, the quality of water has deteriorated. Dumping of chemicals, use of water as coolant etc. are just a few scenarios which has left us with the substandard water. Issues such as increased hardness of water and toxicity are at times difficult to rectify using filtration methods. This leaves us with water that can no longer be considered as viable for day to day use. That’s where Hydreva units come in and shine as a revelation. Coupled with the standard filtration methods, Hydreva technology revitalizes water and reinstates the benefits.
