Has anyone else besides me ever seen the movie Idiocracy? If not just Google this and check out a few youtube trailers. After you see the trailers, you'll understand where America is headed. Whenever I read
stories like this, I honestly feel that somehow I'm living in a parallel universe in an Idiocracy world.
There are two types of silver-zinc batteries; silver oxide-zinc (not rechargeable), and (pure silver at anode)silver-zinc (rechargeable). Cheers...
I am not sure Silver-Zinc can be recharged.
Also an overhead third rail on our freeways to power the big rigs might be a better option. I think some of the railroad guys are converting to overhead electric rails
IMO you're a damn fool. The world is passing you by as you chase this flatline stock around. GLTU. SS
Now that idea I agree with a little bit. But when are all the roads going to get upgraded. I wish it would happen that way. No car manufacturer is going to agree to upgrade all the roads. It's just like the electric racetrack I had when I was a kid. Just don't try to walk across the street.
Which should be very easy to answer...
A-Do you, or an employer have at this time a short position in HL stock, option's or hedged position ?
B-Are you personally acquainted with or have a common business relationship with any other poster's on this board ?
Since I am only asking for a simple yes/no answer [no detail's necessary], privacy concern's are not really an issue. Just looking for a little clarification to explain why some one would spend so much time posting neg. comment's on a stock they claimed to have bought. Especially when the vol. of those neg. comment's seem to increase every time the short int. takes a pop up --like this month when short int. just increased approx. 1 MIL. shares. Since most long's here already assume the most neg. scenario, why not just shine a little light of transparency on your agenda ? It sure can't hurt, & who know's it might even give your post's a little credibility. Bottom line....Having a short position is not a crime, don't you think it might be time...to come out of the closet ????????? GL2U2
Can you imagine the lightening strikes from transmitting electricity like that ? You are right Clark. Fried is putting it mildly ... lol
I suspect you are referring to an induction type of electrical generating technology, where the cable under the road will generate a very powerful and continuous magnetic 'field' (not just radio waves) similar to the outer magnetic armature in a conventional generator. When the vehicle passes through this magnetic field it theoretically could take on the function similar to the inner coil in a conventional generator. Electricity can theoretically be generated, but at a very huge economic and wasteful energy dissipation cost, not to mention that this type of induction energy generation will actually put an extra physical drag on the vehicle (even if the vehicle is totally non-magnetic) somewhat similar to how you have to put energy into a generator in order for it to produce electricity. This type of induction system will also likely have to generate an almost constant magnetic field even when there may be few (or even no) vehicles present to tap it. More likely, in-road cables may first be used to help guide the safe automatic steering on, off, and while on major highways long before they are utilized as in-motion battery induction chargers. Even the use of stationary induction chargers (as are now available with some cell phones) seems questionable for most types of vehicles, as there are large power losses through unharnessed magnetic field energy dissipation, as well as long term questions about possibly negative health effects. In any event, for most stationary recharging uses this type of system would be much less energy efficient than just plugging (by cable) directly into an electric recharging source. In addition, if the costs of fuel cell technologies continues to decline, eventually it might just become more economical to equip electric cars with auxiliary fuel cells to supplement and/or extend rechargeable battery ranges. Cheers...
Technology is already developed and tested.
There will be an electric cable laid under the road surface (right into the black top). Vehicles will be charging from the cable while driving. There will be no cable actually connecting the vehicle - the electricity will transmit through air from the cable to the receiving devise under the vehicle.
Vehicles will still have batteries as a back up and combustion engines for driving off roads and in areas without power cable.
But overall battery technology will have limited use. Batteries are heavy and expensive. Also there a lows of physics - no matter how hard you try you just can't go over certain limits.
He's an idiot. He just makes stuff up. If you were to walk trough those airwaves (carrying such energy) you would be fried. You can transmit energy through the air, via microwaves, but you can't do such a thing to power moving vehicles. Laser beams can carry energy, and microwaves can carry energy, but how can you get that energy from its source to where the energy is consumed without frying something or someone. Cellphones carry very small energy, and yet there is concern that these small signals can cause cancer or other problems. A car uses thousands or millions times more energy than a cell phone.
I have HL and IAG stock and think the big money is waiting for confirmation to this PM rally. Big money like mutual funds would rather wait and be sure of a good profit rather than take a risk for a bigger one. Look for the big run if-when these miners break the $5 mark. Silver-gold today at the opening should be intresting knowing how the Crimean vote goes and either outcome should be good for the PMs. IMO
FWIW, I seriously doubt that from a strictly practical standpoint you can generate radio waves with enough energy to power anything of size at more than 300 feet away from the source of the radio waves, let alone an electric car travelling at 70 MPH on the highway. If you were to try to power a much smaller device at greater distances, you would still have to deal with both the tremendous radio interference, possible biological/health effects from long term intense radio wave exposure, and possibly other effects which would likely be tied up with literally decades of future EPA type research studies. Cheers...
Wrong. In the future energy will be transmitted to vehicles and other devises via type of radio waves. Electricity can be transmitted without any type of conductor. When you receive a phone call - it is basically electric current which was generated somewhere far away and transmitted to your phone via radio waves.
In the future there will be very limited need for any type of batteries at all. Cars will be receiving their energy directly from power stations via radio waves.
It will be similar like having a car plugged into outlet all the type except there are no cables or anything.
This is why I am long silver companies like CDE, AG, PAAS the world will need much more silver to power all new electronic devises.
Big 'what if' future lithium-ion battery production becomes severely constrained due to the expected major shortage of graphite which is necessary to produce lithium-ion batteries. Will rechargeable silver-zinc batteries start to fill a major portion of this void? World graphite production is declining, primarily due to environmental and mining restrictions in China (believe it or not). Sure price is a determining factor as to how graphite supply is rationed, but some industry analysts believe that there is just not enough graphite available to meet the total Worldwide expected demand, especially given the expected plans by Tesla to (possibly) build by far the World's largest new lithium-ion battery factory. Maybe the use of silver-zinc batteries may actually benefit significantly in the future from this situation, especially in those applications which need (and can afford to pay) for even more power density than lithium-ion batteries can provide. Excluding the military, consumer applications could include cell phones, tablets, laptops, and even high end electric cars. Cheers...
