Extreme Solar Power Printer Friendly Version
For some time we have had the ability to manufacture huge lenses. We also have computers and software that could make this idea happen. For a prototype, why not construct a large glass lens maybe 12 feet in diameter. Mount it about 30-50 feet above the ground. The base would be round and by computer be able to move round and up and down; tracking the sun 365 days of the year.
The intense heat created by this large magnifying glass could be focused on some hybrid turbine and or steam generator. I imagine it would spit out a lot more heat than windmills. If it worked you could build a real big one.

Celebrate Education every Month Printer Friendly Version
I have seen students suffer when their year is down (failed), some have even committed sucide. This happens because students start studying when exam comes close by and there is too much accumulation of syllabus.
Hence the solution lies in creating 10 standards out of today's every class, i.e. if students passes today's sixth class then it will be termed as 60th in the new system. There will be only one final exam consisting of all subjects thought for that month, i.e. in a year there will be 10 exams and each of one month's syllabus.
In this system students will study at the end of every month and the best of all is that if they fail then they will lose only one month of their life, i.e. if one fails in std 11 then he remains there for next month only because std 11 will be only for one month.
Please tell this idea to education authorities if u know any.

Electrical Energy from lightning Printer Friendly Version
Since lightnings create a lot of energy, can't that energy somehow be caught and stored for use?
