A clip from some Japanese TV show that tried to put an anime scene in real life. I managed to get a hold of the clip that I haven't seen for the last 5 years. Luckily someone managed to save this video clip since it has been deleted a long time ago on YouTube. This is one the most funniest things the Japanese try to experiment in real life to see if this part of anime can happen in real life. The results are hilarious on what they used to try it. Hopefully you will get a laugh while seeing this clip making a come back again on Bitchute.

Controversial British drama film directed by Vernon Sewell and starring Donald Pleasence, Johnny Briggs and Ann Lynn. Taking its title from the famous "Wind of Change" speech given by British prime minister Harold Macmillan in South Africa in February 1960, it is one of the earliest British films to tackle race as an issue, focussing on disenchanted working-class white youth finding an outlet for their frustrations in racial hatred. The film is set around the coffee bars and homes of the Notting Hill district of
West London, scene of the notorious 1958 Notting Hill race riots.

In different translations, we are told that Peter became afraid of the 'boisterous' wind, but the NIV and others don't use the quantifying term, they simply say he say the wind.
We can't see the wind. We can see the effects the wind has on things around us, but we can't see the actual movement of air.
Are there other things that are invisible that we allow to frighten us?
In today's tumultuous world, it's easy to get caught up in the 'what if' way of thinking. In the end we become of afraid of things that haven't happened and may never happen. During this process, we lose out on the joy of the moment that could be ours.
God told us not to be afraid and to trust Him.
Plan, prepare, but in all things trust. God gives us the ability to think, question, reason, learn.
What will we choose?

Please PRAY ABOUT making a DONATION TO God's Little Angels ministry in Pakistan
Please take a look at their YT channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMW_oJ5oMKLg6MUZNVA-vWg

If you have not surrendered yourself to the Lord Jesus Christ, Yahshua ha Mashiach, and accepted Him as your Lord and Savior, I encourage you to do so TODAY! Time is very short! TODAY is the day of salvation. No One is promised tomorrow...

Here is an example of a prayer that you can pray or you can pray to Jesus with whatever is on your heart in repentance to Him. Tell Him you need Him and you are sorry for the sin the you have commited. Whatever you pray to Jesus MAKE SURE YOU MEAN IT WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART! These are not magic words you have to MEAN THEM, and you have to continue in repentance of sin and relationship (Talking to Jesus) with your Lord and Savior EVERY DAY not just once.

Father, I acknowledge that You are worthy of all honor, glory and praise. I am thankful for the victorious work of Your Son, Jesus, at Calvary for me. I am sorry for my sin and I turn away from it now by the power of the shed blood of your son Jesus (Yashua) I claim His victory over death, hell and sin for myself now as I willingly surrender every area of my life to Your will.

Thank you for the forgiveness and righteousness that has been given to me as Your adopted child. I trust in Your protection and provision daily. I know that your love for me never ceases. I rejoice in Your victory Lord, over all the principalities and powers in the heavenlies. In faith I stand in Your victory and commit myself to live obediently for You my King.

I desire that my fellowship with You becomes greater. Reveal to me those things that grieve You and enable the enemy to secure an advantage in my life. I need the Holy Spirit's powerful ministry in my life; bringing conviction of sin, repentance of heart, strengthening my faith and increasing perseverance in resisting every kind of temptation.

Help me to die to self and walk in the victory of the new creation. You have provided for me. Let the fruits of the Spirit flow out of my life so that You will be glorified. I know that it is Your will that I should stand firm and resist all of the enemy's work against me.

Help me to discern the attacks upon my thoughts and emotions. Enable me to stand upon Your Word and resist all the accusations, distortions or condemnations that may be hurled against me. It is my desire to be transformed through the renewing of my mind, so that I will not compromise with the ways of the world, or yield to the enemy's attacks, but be obedient to Your will.

I draw upon those spiritual resources that You have provided me and I come against the strongholds and plans of the enemy that have been put in place against me. I command in the name of Jesus Christ that the enemy must release my mind, will, emotions and body completely. They have been yielded to the Lord and I belong to Him.

Lord, enable me to become the person You created me to be. Help me as I pray to be strong in faith. Show me how to apply Your Word in my life each day. I know that I wear the full armor of God when I am committed to and stand firmly upon Your Word. I want You to have supreme place in my life.

I surrender myself completely to You, Lord. You are always faithful and You extend Your grace to me constantly, even when I do not realize it. I claim Your promise of forgiveness and cleansing in its fullness. In faith, I receive the victory today that you have already put in place for me. I do this in the name of Jesus Christ, my Savior with a grateful heart. Thank you Jesus! I Love you Jesus!

If you have prayed to receive Jesus into your heart and to be transformed by the Holy Spirit into a new creation, please let me know about it.

We just figured that there has been enough gloom and doom for a while, so we figured why not 'green energy' for a good time? No not the AOC pie in the sky nonsense but the more grounded REAL deal where Petrol Nuclear and Renewables will work together or add to the picture rather than replace each other.

Cover is Geo Thermal in action -- you put water down the hole -- it comes back up as steam -- turbines turn -- energy goes out -- water cools and goes down the hole again-- Repeat. Seems simple huh?

With that remember -- The Left are crazy people. They get even green energy right! Cuz for them it is a RELIGION not a science!

Also Remember that all day every day equality is a lie. Our Nation first and only
--- Since no border no real country or nation or identity -- false BS about
humanity is a lie.
No Border -- No White America.

When I took the video yesterday, Sunday, May 12, the wind just started picking up. It got much more stormy over the night, which I could not film because of darkness. It's still really ugly and windy outside. We are lucky here, as it's not really bad, but other areas really get blown to bits.
This type of weather has been going on more or less since early March, with a few small breaks in between. It's been like that for most of Europe. The alps continue the get heavy snowfall and the temperatures are so much lower than they should be, yet the weather people on TV call it one of the warmest springs? Wut? Maybe in another dimension.

2 years, 1 month ago

The wind was variable, but we had a gust here and there. The VAWT was able to turn but did not perform as hoped. I think the pivot point was to far from the center of pressure, it wasn't balanced carefully, and one pivot seemed to hang up. So I suppose I'll have to make another only put a little more care into the construction.

2 years, 1 month ago

Details from the construction of a small Sharp style vertical axis wind turbine. There is a little video of it trying to spin, but the wind was so light and variable it really didn't get going. I was happy it turned at all considering the size of the wings compared to the diameter.

Severe Weather Report

2 years, 6 months ago

I tried making a vertical axis wind turbine with a lower solidity because I wanted to see one operate with a fairly high tip speed ratio. I knew going in that it would not start on its own, and it certainly did that. I could not get it to start at all. Possibly because we did not have very good wind for weeks. Perhaps I did not get it spinning fast enough to keep the wings from stalling. In any event, it looks like this experiment was a flop. But I posted the video for documentation sake.

Details of the bearing and stator assembly for a 0.10 square meter VAWT.

2 years, 7 months ago

A brief characterization of the VAWT generator and estimation of tip speed ratio (TSR) with some clips of it spinning in the wind. I don't have power production data. Our wind resource is quite poor, and we might not have enough wind to collect power data for some time. The TSR is in the neighborhood of 1.2 to 1.4; a bit low for a VAWT, but not unexpected for a small turbine with relatively large wing chord.

A brief look at a small Savonius vertical axis wind turbine made from Coroplast material and attached to a generator described in previous videos. No data is presented as we had no wind to speak of for over a week and I wanted to move on to another turbine idea.

2 years, 7 months ago

I tried making a wind turbine to go with a small DC motor. My 3D printer is small so I'm limited to parts that are about 4" in diameter. A Savonius rotor of that size was not enough to overcome the drag from the motor. So I tried making an experimental VAWT. The connection between that VAWT and the motor was too weak, but when placed on a simple dowel axle, it would spin well in a good breeze.

2 years, 9 months ago

A followup video about the VAWT035 project. This is a look at how the various components have fared after a couple years of use. I'm quite happy with how it held up. The tops of two of the blades were eroded; possibly due to woodpeckers. However, I took down the windmill because I use a solar panel now to keep a battery topped off and the pole is now gone because I got tired of mowing around it. Our location is not very suitable for wind power and I am not planning on pursuing the project any further.

2 years, 9 months ago

I tried some fiberglas coated NACA0024 wings along with mounting them with the trailing edge a little inboard. Performance was improved.

2 years, 9 months ago

In an effort to improve its performance, the wings of the Foam VAWT were made stiffer by adding some glass fiber packing tape along with a coating of clear packing tape. It did better than the foam wings by themselves.

2 years, 9 months ago

An early version of a VAWT with foam wings. This is from Nov. 2, 2011. The wings were quite flexible and did not appear to be efficient as a result.

2 years, 9 months ago

A brief look at how I use a vacuum system to make VAWT blades.

2 years, 9 months ago

We finally had enough wind to test the LM2596 controller. I wanted to highlight two improvements over the MC34063 controller. This controller limits the current on a cycle-by-cycle basis so I believe the current reading on the Watts-Up meter is closer to reality. The previous controller used a low frequency PWM signal to turn it full-on and full-off. So when it was on, the controller was hitting its current limits while the capacitors discharged. The Watts-Up meter would pick up on the current peaks and display a false peak current. The second improvement is in the software. As the input voltage nears the point where it will trip the SCR, the controller starts calling for higher levels of current (a more aggressive current vs. RPM curve) in order to slow the turbine and delay shutting it down with the SCR.
This video is the last in my series on the 0.35 m^2 vertical axis wind turbine. My hope was to be able to produce them for a reasonable price. But I don't think it would be worthwhile to make and sell them for less than $800, and there did not appear to be a market. I gave this one away and have since moved on to other projects and turbines. (9/16/18)

2 years, 9 months ago

We had a fairly windy day, so it was a good time to test the over-voltage circuitry. A 36 volt zener diode connects to the gate of an SCR. This is just a demonstration of the circuit function, and some data after the wind storm.

2 years, 9 months ago

Details on how I've been making wings lately. They now have more glass, and I used a spray adhesive to keep the fabric in place while applying epoxy.

2 years, 9 months ago

A quick look at the latest control board for the VAWT. It is basically a buck type converter with a micro-controller that cycles the converter to achieve an average current draw from the wind turbine. The buck converter is based on an MC34063 and an ATTiny85 is used for the micro-controller. (8/31/14)

2 years, 9 months ago

One VAWT spent around a year on top of a 20 foot post and exposed to the elements including more wind than I get at my location. It had some electronics to govern its speed, but it would spin up to a good RPM. The goal was to see how it would hold up over time. A few weeks ago it met its demise when the mounting bolts failed in a storm. This video takes a brief look at the VAWT after its time in the field. Overall, it fared quite well. The bearings turned smoothly without slop or noise. The wings that did not take the brunt of the fall looked to be in good shape. Although, some of the foam on the ends of the blades did not get good epoxy coverage and the foam was eroding a bit. While the LED failed, I believe the PMA and SCR/zener governor is working since it has been able to regulate its speed.
(This video was originally posted July 26, 2014)

2 years, 9 months ago

An update on progress with the VAWT 035 wind turbine. We had some wind today and for the first time there is evidence that the turbine could produce at least 20 Watts under reasonable wind conditions. I'm using a new controller based on an MC34063 buck converter and an ATTiny85 micro-controller. The micro-controller sends a PWM signal based on turbine RPM and current sensing to the feedback pin of the converter to control current. Although, it appears that the MC34063 is operating near its maximum current capacity. I think I might try the same approach using an LM2596.

2 years, 9 months ago

A test to see if the speed data available on a web page matches the actual speed of the turbine. It seems to be fairly close, but there is a lot of variability in the wind and filtering/lag in the web page presentation so the results are inconclusive. Please note that this web site is not up anymore since I took down the wind turbine.

One criteria for determining the maximum tip speed ratio (TSR) is radial acceleration. Small vertical axis wind turbines must spin at a high rate to avoid aerodynamic stall. But that speed comes with high accelerations that put a load on the blades.

2 years, 9 months ago

We had a wind storm run through during the night. I left the wind turbine hooked up to see how it would react. I believe there is still a problem with the controller, or something was neglected in the software and the MOSFET turned off. That unloaded the turbine and it began to spin very fast leading to failure in the blades.

I replaced the horizontal wind turbine for a lawn decoration with a vertical axis wind turbine. They both have the same area so the tower should hold up okay.

In diesen unchristlichen Zeiten, in welchen Konstruktivisten glauben, sogar das Klima beherrschen zu können, kann ein Blick auf die Kraft der Naturgewalten helfen, ihre Hybris ad absurdum zu führen

Als Sturm werden Winde mit Geschwindigkeiten von mindestens 20,8 m/s (74,9 km/h) oder 9 Beaufort bezeichnet. Ein Sturm mit einer Windgeschwindigkeit von mindestens 32,7 m/s (117,7 km/h) oder 12 Beaufort wird als Orkan bezeichnet. Dazwischen spricht man bei 10 Beaufort von einem schweren und bei 11 Beaufort von einem orkanartigen Sturm. Erreicht der Wind nur kurzzeitig (für wenige Sekunden) Sturmstärke, so spricht man von einer Sturmböe. In der Regel sind mit einem Sturm auch starke Regenfälle verbunden, weshalb die Bezeichnung umgangssprachlich oft als Synonym für einen schweren Schauer oder ein Gewitter verwendet wird, beide stellen jedoch nur Begleiterscheinungen bzw. Spezialfälle eines Sturms dar.

Funny how the blades hardly look like they are moving in the video but it was really screaming today.
Seems to be a bit of vibration in the system.
