Manipura Guided Meditation

Manipura Guided MeditationClick Image To Visit SiteThere is a kind of practical meditation that can exponentially increase your personal power and charisma. Hindu kings and rajas (rulers) used it for ages to assert their control over people. What did they do? They consciously accessed the power of their Manipura Chakra. The Indian word for ‘emperor’, chakravartin, relates to this fact.

Chakras are said in Hindu philosophy to be the energetic centers of the spiritual body that we all posess. You could ask: do they really exist? The scientific jury is still out, but it shouldn’t matter to you. What matters is that meditating on them really works. Manipura Chakra is the one responsible for the success in this world. Its color is yellow, or golden, its symbol is the sun, its name translates to City of Jewels, and it is located above your navel, where the stomach is.

Wave energy prototype generator WavePOD produces first power in lab tests

The WavePOD prototype generator has produced its first electricity in laboratory tests.

The tenth-scale Wave Power Offtake Device (WavePOD) offshore hydraulic generator, developed by Edinburgh-based Aquamarine Power and Bosch Rexroth, was officially switched on to launch a test programme being conducted at the Institute for Fluid Power Drives and Controls (IFAS) at RWTH Aachen University, Germany.

The prototype is part of a collaborative development effort which includes some of Europe’s leading wave energy developers, utilities and academic institutions.

They hope to develop an industry-wide power take off device which can generate electricity reliably and cost-effectively at sea.

Aquamarine Power chief executive John Malcom, said: “We have already learned a tremendous amount through the design, build and commissioning of this WavePOD prototype

“We are now generating electrical power, and the drive train is using real-life hydrodynamic data from Oyster 800 to ensure the power take off is experiencing exactly the same loads it would encounter at sea.

“We aim to finish lab testing by March next year and plan to install a further prototype in real sea conditions on our Oyster 800 machine in Orkney in 2016.”

The WavePOD prototype development and testing programme receives funding support from the Scottish Government’s Marine Renewables Commercialisation Fund (MRCF), managed by the Carbon Trust.

Its consortium partners include Aquamarine Power and Bosch Rexroth, wave technology developers Albatern, Carnegie Wave Energy UK and M4 WavePower.

Also in the consortium are Irish utility ESB, the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, IFAS and University College Dublin’s Energy Research Centre.

Researchers create and control spin waves for enhanced data processing

A team of New York University and University of Barcelona physicists has developed a method to control the movements occurring within magnetic materials, which are used to store and carry information. The breakthrough could simultaneously bolster information processing while reducing the energy necessary to do so.

Their method, reported in the most recent issue of the journal Nature Nanotechnology, manipulates “spin waves,” which are waves that move in magnetic materials. Physically, these spin waves are much like water waves–like those that propagate on the surface of an ocean. However, like electromagnetic waves (i.e., light and radio waves), spin waves can efficiently transfer energy and information from place to place.

The challenge, scientists have found, is developing a means to create and control them.

In the Nature Nanotechnology study, the NYU-UB researchers demonstrated how this could be achieved.

“Spin waves have great potential to improve information processing and make it more energy efficient,” says Andrew Kent, a professor in NYU’s Department of Physics and the paper’s senior author.

“Our results show that it’s possible to both create and store spin wave energy in remarkably small spaces. The next steps are to understand how far these waves can propagate and how best to encode information in them.”

The study’s other authors included Ferran Macia, a former NYU-UB Marie-Curie Fellow and now at the University of Barcelona, and Dirk Backes, a former NYU postdoctoral fellow and presently at the University of Cambridge.

Currently, electromagnetic waves in antennas can be converted into spin waves. However, the resulting spin waves have a long wavelength and propagate slowly. By contrast, short-wavelength spin waves can move over greater distances, more quickly, and with less energy, and thus present the possibility of improving a range of communications and electronic devices.

In the Nature Nanotechnology study, the researchers conducted a series of experiments in which they built nanometer scale electrical contacts to inject spin-polarized electrical currents into magnetic materials–a process developed to create and control the movements of its spin waves.

Specifically, by blending different magnetic forces they were able to trap them in a specific area–forming magnetic “droplets” that remained in place rather than propagating, thereby forming a stable energy source. Future research, the scientists say, would then focus on ways to move this localized energy or release it in the form of propagating spin waves.

“We’ve known that spin waves can propagate, but we’ve shown in this study that you can control them so they will localize in a specific spot,” explains Kent.

“By changing the mix of magnetic forces on these droplets–such as with a electrical current or magnetic field–we should be able to get them to emit spin-waves, perhaps as energy bursts, that can encode information.”

Volleyball: Bass uses game to overcome adversity

Alexa Bass was dressed in street clothes when she showed up roughly 15 minutes late for Argyle’s practice Monday afternoon. It was uncharacteristic for her to be late for anything, especially volleyball.

It was a horrible day, though. The Lady Eagles’ junior setter tried to smile, but all she could do was cry.

“What’s wrong?” sophomore Allison White said as she reached to give Bass a hug.

Bass whispered that she had just learned her father has prostate cancer, one of several health issues, deaths and injuries her family has endured over the last year. Through it all, Bass prided herself on keeping her emotions in check.

“There are times when I’m by myself that I cry it out and it’s OK, but this was the tipping point,” Bass said. “That’s the first time I’ve broken down [in front of my teammates]. I didn’t want to. I don’t want it to ever be about me when I’m with them. It’s about the team.”

Volleyball is an escape for Bass, an Oral Roberts commit whose versatile play has the Lady Eagles two wins from their first state title. Argyle (38-7) will face Liberty Hill (33-12) at 3 p.m. Friday in the Class 4A semifinals at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland.

“To compete at state with this team means the world to me,” said Bass, whose older sisters Mikayla and Katie are former state champions at Coppell. “This is what cheers me up the most.”

Kelly Bass, Alexa’s mother, said she shared the news about her husband, Mike, with her children because they have always handled things as a family. Alexa is the youngest of four children and perhaps the hardest-hit emotionally.

“I do worry about her, but as a mom it feels good to know my children lean on each other. They are all so close,” Kelly Bass said. “I want so badly for Alexa to live in the moment of volleyball. She loves the sport and her team so much, and not many kids have the chance to go to state. I don’t want that taken from her.”

It hasn’t been easy.

 

Battling for Bear

In January, Mikayla Bass — who won state titles in volleyball and soccer at Coppell and is affectionately known as “Bear” — was diagnosed with a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disorder called myasthenia gravis. She is 20, and the rare disease has no known cure. For the Bass family, that has meant a world of changes.

Kelly Bass quit her job in July to care for Mikayla, who still has good days with the help of medication. On other days, fluctuating weakness in her muscles makes it difficult for her to walk, eat or brush her teeth without help.

The family has spearheaded several fundraising campaigns to raise $50,000 — the cost of a treatment in Russia that they believe will be a game changer for Mikayla’s quality of life. Alexa designed and sold bracelets at school and helped sell T-shirts at fundraising events.

“I’m extremely proud of Alexa,” Mikayla said. “A 16-year-old girl should have everything she wants in life, and it breaks my heart to see her going through all of this. I’m the older sibling, but she’s the one taking care of me.”

On Oct. 25, four days after a “Battle for Bear” fundraiser at Argyle, brother Nick Bass and his best friend, Kyle Tilley, were in a car accident when another driver struck the rear of Tilley’s car and forced it to overturn.

Nick was hospitalized with severe injuries. Tilley did not survive.

“Kyle was family,” Alexa said. “I remember being at home the morning of my dad’s birthday. I had the whole day planned for the family, but then there was a knock at the door and it was a state trooper. When I knew Kyle was gone, my heart sank.”

In recent weeks, sister Katie had her own health scare, and this past weekend — after the Lady Eagles beat Melissa in the 4A Region II final — Alexa was in a car crash and suffered minor injuries.

“She’s handled all of this better than most adults would,” Argyle coach Clark Oberle said. “Volleyball is her escape. She can come here and focus on a sport and team she loves.”

 

Well-rounded team

Despite everything that’s happened, Alexa — who moved from Coppell before her sophomore year — has been close to unstoppable in the playoffs.

She had 23 assists in a first-round win over Dallas Uplift Hampton Prep, then combined for 18 kills and eight aces in wins over Bonham and Aubrey. Last weekend, she racked up nine kills, 14 assists and four aces in a sweep of Van. Against Melissa, she had 15 kills and five aces, including on match point.

“We weren’t one-dimensional without her, but Alexa has made us well-rounded,” Oberle said of Bass, who was splitting time between indoor and beach volleyball. “She does just about everything right. We noticed that from the moment she got here.”

She’s so versatile that Oral Roberts recruited her as a right-side hitter. Senior Katy Keenan said Bass’ dedication and leadership have been keys to Argyle’s success.

“We’ve found out about things she’s gone through, but then she’s back the next day,” Keenan said. “She has a really good friend group that supports her and keeps her energy high.”

 

A bigger family

As Alexa sobbed at Monday’s practice, there wasn’t a single teammate who didn’t stop what they were doing to offer support. White was the first.

“I just told her sometimes things happen in life and we don’t understand why,” White said. “We have to trust in God that he will take care of us no matter what.”

At that moment, volleyball was just as much about family as it is a sport.

“They know I don’t like to be the center of attention, but I know they’re here for me just like I’m here for this team,” Alexa said. “I want us to have those state medals around our necks.”
