Geheimnisvolle Lichter


Es leuchtet und lockt in Hildesheim? Das machte mich neugierig... Laut Zeitungsbericht wurden geheimnisvolle Lichter am Nachthimmel beobachtet und das wollte ich mir auch ansehen. Da es in den letzten Tagen sehr nebelig war, verschob ich meine Entdeckungstour immer wieder. Aber heute abend war freie Sicht! Auf dem Weg durch die dunklen Gassen der Altstadt suchte ich nach Lichtern am Himmel, doch sah ich nichts. Unterwegs traf ich Menschen und fragte, ob sie etwas beobachtet hatten. Tatsächlich, einer berichtete von einer Licht-Erscheinung am Museum. Also nichts wie hin, an den geheimnisvollen Ort. Dort angekommen, sah ich wieder nichts! Oder doch? Da, da war doch was? Nur einen ganz kurzen Augenblich leuchtete es auf. Ich hatte keine Erklärung für die Erscheinung. Und als ich schon dachte, ich hätte mir das vielleicht doch nur alles eingebildet, hörte ich ein Summen und Brummen... 

Das immer näher kam und es landeten zwei Flugobjekte mit seltsamen Passagieren. Eine ganze Weile konnte ich sie unbemerkt beobachten. Das war ein Geplapper und Gewusel. Doch dann hatten sie mich bemerkt, sie wurden ganz ganz still. Einer von ihnen trat hervor und erklärte mit traurigem Blick, dass sie sich auf dem Weg zur galaktischen Vollversammlung durch den dichten Nebel verflogen hätten. Schon seit Tagen würden sie im Kreis fliegen, ob ich ihnen wohl den Weg zum Sirius erklären könnte. Oh ja, das konnte ich, einfach immer Richtung Süden, genau auf den hellen Stern im Orion zu, da ist der Sirius! So nahm die Geschichte hoffentlich ein glückliches Ende für die Außerirdischen und ich habe ein unvergessliches Abenteuer erlebt. Gern hätte ich sie zu mir nach Hause eingeladen und mehr über ihr Leben auf ihrem Planeten erfahren.

The study of otherwise healthy older people found that those who woke frequently during the night were twice as likely to die during follow-up as those without sleep problems. Some people take up to 800 mgs of Ibuprofen under the care of a health care provider to reduce joint inflammation. What most people found not realize is the side effects from prolonged use of such high dose can cause even additional serious health problems. The potential of betalains Harnessing the effectiveness of betalains, a rare class of antioxidants found in the Nopal cactus, Nopalea delivers trusted health benefits.

Book Review: Black is for Beginnings


Blue Is For Nightmares, Book 5 - by Laurie Faria Stolarz. Title: Black is for Beginnings. Author: Laurie Faria Stolarz. Genre: Young Adult Graphic Novel. Paperback: 168 pages. Publisher: Flux (September 1, 2009). Description: Prophetic nightmares. Near-brushes with death. Killers pursuing her and her friends. Stacey Brown knows that being a hereditary witch isn't all it's cracked up to be. All she really wants to do is work things out with Jacob and figure out what to do with the rest of her life. But before Stacey and Jacob can have a future, they must face their pasts. Black is for Beginnings reveals the never-before-seen backstory, and what lies ahead for the young, spellcasting lovers. It's happening again... My Review: I read Blue is for Nightmares back when I was, um, younger. Wasn't a huge fan. At all. I just didn't enjoy the vibes coming off the book. I wasn't interested in reading more. So why did I read this? I don't know. After I left the library with it I was questioning my sanity. The majority... okay, okay, all of the book was annoying. Trying to be hip. And down with the kids. The romance and angst were irritating. The big annoyance was the main character: Stacey. She was extremely insecure. 

Insecurity, like feistiness, if done wrong, can make you hate a character. From my experience. Insecurity can become a chronic whining and moaning. Feistiness is often another, nicer, word for extreme bitchiness. Of course, this insecurity was enhanced by the fact that this is a graphic novel. Every unsure glance. Every drawn brow. Every constipated expression. For heaven's sake her face on the cover is exactly what I am talking about. Anyway, the book is all about Stacey's insecurity, her regret and her self-absorption. Nothing much besides that, of interest (key phrase here), was really happening. The ending was a killer for me. Stacey, obviously gets the dude, but she has to ask if her likes her. "Do you hate me? You do right? I bet you think I am dumb and ugly!" Omg! I was about to die. She never gains any confidence. Would have enjoyed some character growth here! Well, they're teens, one can only hope that relationship crashes and burns. Sorry I always get like this, acting like it's all real, when characters or a plot/story annoys me greatly. My rating is 1/5. Would not recommend this book. Unless you love the author and her Blue series. Or if you are an immense junkie of GNs.

I Need to Think Happy Thoughts


Or i’m not going to make it through the day. Here’s a happy thought: my daughter just had her first taste of chocolate! And what did she do? she immediately began to demand more. Smart kid. It has been brought to my attention that she was not given the chocolate, she stole it. It’s probably evidence that i’m a terrible parent that this fact fills me with a certain frisson of pride. You should see her though. Most of the time, when she finds things, her first impulse is to give it to whomever is standing nearby. It’s the cutest thing in the world. The fact that she kept the chocolate for herself is merely evidence that she’s a normal human being. Could have fooled me, I see daily signs that she’s an angel. This is a child who is loved. I want so much to give her everything that will make her strong, confident and secure. At the very least, I don’t want her to ever, for one second, have to doubt or question that she is loved, absolutely unconditionally. God willing she’s escaped her father’s brain chemistry. That being the case, I’ll do what I can.

Solar Charge Controller


Passionate about electronic or wanting to become a good electronics engineer, then you are in the right place. On electroschematics.com you will find a dedicated community  of smart and innovative people, that will help you develop your skills and improve your knowledge. You can initiate conversations regarding branches of electronics that you are interested in and we provide you valuable information and advice. You can always ask us questions if you have any difficulty in understanding our projects or our articles and we promise prompt responses. A charge controller or charge regulator is a voltage and a current regulator to keep batteries from overcharging. It regulates the voltage and current coming from solar panels going to the battery. A charge controller is usually useful.  A fully charged "12 volt’" battery is around 12.7 volts at rest, so the panel has to put out at least that much under worst case conditions. Contrary to intuition, solar panels work best at cooler temperatures. 

Roughly, a panel rated at 100 watts at room temperature will be an 83 watt panel at 110 degrees. If you use a standard controller, it will often work with high voltage panels if the maximum input voltage of the charge controller is not exceeded. However, there is going to be a lot of lost power, from 20% to 60% of what your panel is rated at. Charge controls come in all shapes, features, sizes and price ranges and in 3 general types. Circuitry that functions as a charge regulator controller may consist of several electrical components or may be encapsulated in a single microchip, an integrated circuit usually called a charge controller IC or charge control IC. We invite you to find out more about the low dropout voltage (LDO) solar charge controller that uses a simple differential amplifier and series channel MOSFET linear regulator. Voltage output is adjustable and it’s mainly intended for charging 12V lead-acid batteries.
