Steorn's "Free Energy" Jury Comes Back To Bite Them
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof, to wit, a working model.
People tend to forget that we don't harness energy states, we harness differences in energy states.
The difference in temperature drives a thermocouple, a difference in pressure drives a piston, a difference in voltage drives an electric circuit.
A chunk of iron with a temperature of X is useless if its stuck in an environment that is also at X.
Doctors Will Test Gene Editing On HIV Patients
There is an argument that AIDS can be thought of as a symptom of severe selenium deficiency that has been triggered by the HIV virus. A recently retired geography prof, Harry Foster, has been doing some interesting work on the subject (his website is at www.hdfoster.com). The summary is: a few brazil nuts a day is a good thing for your immune system, if you aren't allergic to them.
I've always tended to get really nasty colds, a couple a year. Since I started chowing down on the brazil nuts 10 months ago, I've been pretty much free of them. Just don't eat too many (two a day is safe), or you risk selenium poisoning.

What I don't see is any mention of whether she is printing onto silicon wafers. If its silicon wafers, then this is just a PR opportunity by a university. Presumably her patent application will become visible in another year and we'll be able to tell.
