Data loss prevention emergency tactic: keep your finger on the power button for the foreseeable future
Whilst the use of per-revolutionary units does irk, I'm more confused by the grid connection and dynamo being a big thing.
Thermal power plants use turbines, and they have the power take off and grid connection part sorted.
If you have lower power requirements then you just use an inverter (with efficiencies of >98% so minimal losses), what's the big thing here? Other than replacing steam with CO2 which apparently provides some advantages in operational efficiencies. This is the second article discussing 'Sandia' does a relative work there? I've never come across the institution? before.
-> Thank you for confirming my point. I wrote that scientists are not always right. What a pity that the first groups of scientists who said such and such was safe can't be force fed the excrement they created.
Thalidomide is safe to those taking it (people still take it to treat leprosy), however it is not safe for fetus at a certain developmental point. Now how many pregnant women do you think were in the initial drug trials? same number as are in pretty much all drug trials - zero.
There is never zero risk, and sometimes the consequences are horrendous, but new information comes to light and conclusions change.
Slavery has not been completely abolished, it is still allowed for prisoners, hence the large numbers of such low cost workers.
"Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction"
No, you provide your evidence and references, if you are an expert.
This is a standard method / trick used by various virulent political parties and conspiracy theorists. The argument goes that if you disagree with them, then you should be able to spout chapter and verse of references to support your view. But in their case they will not say, X and Y because of this and this reference, because in that way they can easily be refuted.
Their aim here is to get you to provide references to the negative and then pick and argue for you to provide more against a particular part that they identify as incorrect.
The second objective is to get the less credulous to search for 'bellingcat is bad' and then start digging through the latrine of conspiracy theories.

physical test measurement
So [The Chinese team developed an apparatus, dubbed Jiuzhang, that consists of a laser, mirrors, prisms, and photon detectors. The group reported that they achieved a sampling rate that's "~1014 faster than using the state-of-the-art simulation strategy and supercomputers."]
They built an experiment and were able to take measurments 10^14 time faster than simulating the physics in a computer. It is unclear what is new about this state of affairs, this is why most groups use experiments for this type of reaserch, rather than simulations.
Re: Trump money and mouth miles apart
Most americans think that slave labour was abolished by the 13th amendment. In actual fact by convicting someone you can then use them as slaves; "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."
hmm, I wonder why there are so many people in jails? /sarcasm

Thre is enough information out there in research papers and company product documentation in combination with open source FEA tools to allow someone to make an engineering approximation of the mass, strength / stiffness and velocity required to breach any given structure. The redaction just weeds out the less competent.

'Steele will no longer be allowed to practice law in the state, although that does leave many other states'
A good example to highlight that the USA is not 'a country' and should be viewed equivalent to Europe, and something i wish was highlited more often, mainly to brexiters.
Re: Two words really
Interesting, not come accross that before. An interesting parallel with trumpism and devaluation in local influence with rise of 'big man' promissing a return to local power / potency.
"A serious problem with the name is its pejorative connotation of backwardness, since it imputes a goal (cargo) obtained through the wrong means (cult); the actual goal is not so much obtaining material goods as creating and renewing social relationships under threat. Martha Kaplan thus argues we should erase the term altogether."

Why not use unflattering nick names, rather than inflating egos, I recommend unpleasant diseases which would come up when searching for them. You never know may piss them off enough to reveal more info.
