Differing Levels of Academic Depravity

March 28, 2016

A respected Professor (genuine) of Chemistry (real experiments, not mere mathematical modelling) at Manchester University (a real academic entity, not someone’s cottage) recently resigned because it had been discovered that he had been starring in hard-core pornographic films.  Some may call that depravity on his part, but he was very good at his day-job (and pretty expert at his hobby) and did nothing to besmirch academic standards and intellectual honesty.  How unlike the home-life of our own dear Ron, whose every written word, utterance and continued existence as a Civil-List pensioner is an affront to proper scientific mores. Rather than educating students in good scientific practice, as ‘Old Nick’ did, Ron has done untold damage to any scientifically inquiring minds that come upon (no pun intended) his pseudoscientific twaddle, and has diminished even more the ever-shrinking public understanding of science. There is only one level of depravity below Ron’s, and that is occupied by the likes of ex-Professor (materials science), Dr Judy Wood (the great whore of pseudoscience), who says that the twin-towers were brought down by a death-ray.

All Books Doing very Well

March 26, 2016

Now that I have worked out how to calculate the number of books read from the downloaded storage, I can see clearly that all the books and papers, articles and so on posted on www.aias.us and www.upitec.org are doing very well, in English and Spanish. So congratulations to all authors. “En resiste a l’invasion des armees, en ne resiste pas a l’invasion des idees” (Victor Hugo, “History of a Crime”). “The invasion of armies can be resisted, one cannot resist the invasion of ideas”. This is usually translated as “One cannot stop the march of ideas”.

It is ‘on’ Ron, not ‘en’. Can you not get anything right? We shall overlook the missing diacritical marks.

Greetings on Easter Day from the Co President, Gareth Evans

March 25, 2016

I first met Gareth Evans on a visit from Oxford in 1974 when his Ph. D. under Mansel Davies was stalled, and the attached shows his list of Fellowships and awards, which include the Mathews Prize for best first year undergraduate results.”

Most theologians consider ‘easter day’ to be the Sunday following Good Friday. We are surprised to find that such a Renaissance Man does not know that. Or have you, with your armiger status, decreed otherwise?

“Great Men are Necessarily Evil Men” Acton

FOR POSTING: realtion to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd President

March 20, 2016

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was my ancestral cousin, he was descended from my direct ancestor King Tewdwr Mawr ap Cadell, (born 997), Brenin Deau Cymru (King of Southern Wales). Roosevelt was also descended from John of Gaunt Duke of Lancaster, whose great grandson Sir Henry Stradling, Knight of the Holy Sepulchre, married my ancestral cousin Elsbeth ferch William ap Thomas of Raglan Castle (sometimes known as Elizabeth Herbert (born 1427)). She is not to be confused with my ancestral cousin Elizabeth Herbert (born 1476) who was married to Charles Somerset, Earl of Worcester (born 1460) also descended from John of Gaunt.”

But that means that you are also related (using the cousin-trick) to George W Bush and Winston Churchill. Hmm, Churchill: son of a syphilitic father and a mother who whored herself to get juicy posts for her son … which he then royally screwed up, causing many deaths (Gallipoli). Gee, Ron, why do you want to be associated with such people? Do/did any of them even speak Welsh?

PS:  Our writer-friend points out that there is another connection between Ron and Churchill. It is a little-known fact that Churchill proposed his own idea for a death-ray. It was infantile: essentially an unshielded nuclear reactor at the breech-end of a cannon. The previous incumbent of the ‘craigcefnparc-crackpot’ post was of course ‘death-ray’ Grindell-Matthews. Just before he died in 1941, he claimed that the government was making ‘overtures’ to him (after rightly dismissing him as a crook in 1925). Who knows? Winston ‘action-this-day’ Churchill was very fond of crackpots. He favoured the building of aircraft carriers out of sawdust-ice composites. When he sent their inventor, Pyke, to the USA Pyke was so arrogant (like all crackpots) that he came close to alienating Vannevar Bush, the head of wartime US research!

“Forty One Essays on Youtube

Many thanks indeed to Michael Jackson! This is tremendous help and most generous. As soon as Steve and I fix up the recording apparatus here I will begin recording a lot more material, and will dig up some more photographs.”

Well, the most viewed video at the moment is Essay 38, with 29 views. If everybody had watched the whole video, that would have amounted to well over 3 hours in all. In fact, the total viewing time is 13 minutes, and the average viewing time is 37 seconds. Oh, and there are 6 down-thumbs and no up-thumbs. Those thousands of fans of yours had better make their presence felt very quickly, Ron, or it will look as though you are lying through your teeth about your ‘success’.

Four Reliable Measures

March 17, 2016

There are now four reliable measures of Ron’s ‘success’ which can be used to counter his contrived and meaningless ‘scientometrics’. It is clear that the latter merely reflect internet ‘white noise’ and are utterly meaningless. Meanwhile there is Google Scholar, which shows that nobody but Ron and his gang cites his nonsense-physics. Scopus indicates even fewer citations, because Scopus has higher standards than Google as to what constitutes a scientific source of citations. Unfortunately, Scopus is hidden behind a pay-wall. The third measuring system has just been set up by Ron himself; literally making a rod for his own back. This system consists of his dozens of boring and tendentious YouTube videos. Some guidance is needed to get the best from these. Firstly, in order to make them more fun, increase the speed of the playback to make them even less intelligible … but rather more amusing. More importantly, press the button marked ‘More’ below the video. This brings up the statistics. Ron and his gang need not waste their time on trying to make the video look more popular, by repeatedly viewing it for just a second, because the statistics show the total and average times for which the video has been watched. The thumbs also cannot be manipulated unless one has access to umpteen different IPAs. The point is, of course, that all of those supposed thousands of visitors to Ron’s blog will be aware of the existence of the videos and, being such fans of ECE, they will rush to watch and applaud Ron’s work. One can therefore look forward to seeing hundreds of thumbs-up rather than the few thumbs-down which exist at present. When these fail to materialize, that fact will naturally confirm that there are in fact no followers.  What is the fourth measure? Well, this again is one that Ron set up himself months ago and daily shows  – in numerous ways – that nobody  takes any interest in him or his activities. We are keeping the nature of this measure secret because, the longer that it takes Ron to spot it, the more devastating the revelation will be. Finally, get voting on those videos!

Many thanks indeed to Michael Jackson! This is tremendous help and most generous. As soon as Steve and I fix up the recording apparatus here I will begin recording a lot more material, and will dig up some more photographs. The ECE theory is as accepted now as any theory, one cannot stop the march of ideas. The standard model looks like a lead sieve trying to float on hydrogen. Also many thanks once more for your vitally important blog back up work.”

Even more videos, just as deceptive and boring. Comments will be blocked of course, but one can still award thumbs-down. Let us see how many thumbs there will be altogether. With all of those thousands of supposed followers, the numbers should be huge. Did not think that through, did you Ron?

Gravitons

March 12, 2016

In ECE2 theory the graviton plays the role of photon in electromagnetism, so it is the spin one boson that mediates gravitational attraction, for example the gravitational attraction of two masses. In exact analogy two charges of opposite sign attract, and an oscillating charge (e.g. a spark or transmitter) radiates the electromagnetic field, which quantizes into photons. The photon itself has no charge, but it has mass because of the B(3) field. So an oscillating mass in ECE2 radiates a gravitational field, which quantizes into gravitons with mass. There is gravitational dipole radiation, gravitational quadrupole radiation and so on, exactly as in electromagnetism. If there is an oscillating negative charge (transmitter), located a metre from a receiver, the two charges attract, but at the same time the transmitter radiates. The complete process obeys the laws of conservation of energy / momentum and charge current density.”

Yes, Ron, one can have a dipole source of gravitational radiation. And one can imagine two closely-spaced masses radiating. But what other condition do we know that those masses would have to satisfy? Think about it.

Analysis of UFT25 on Google Scholar

Analysis of UFT25 on www.aias.us

March 13, 2016

In the eleven months from April 2015 to February 2016, 398,712 printed pages of the paper were downloaded offwww.aias.us. The paper is fifteen pages long, A4 single spaced, so a conversion of one printed page = 3.646 kilobytes was used. So the paper was read 26,581 times in eleven months. For combined sites it was read 42,530 times in eleven months, which is 46,396 times a year. It was written in 2004, so from 2004 to 2016 it has been read 510,350 times, about half a MILLION times.”

It has been cited only twice … by Ron. When Ron cited it in the crackpot Journal of New Energy, it was in turn cited 35 times: mainly by Ron and gang-member Amador, plus one extraneous loony (whose paper of course remains uncited). The proof of the pudding is in the eating, Ron. Making daily listings of ‘internet noise’ is no proof of anything. Why would your followers remain so quiet? You claim that they are scared but, at the same time, you claim that your crackpot theory is now the accepted one. Your story just does not hold water, does it?    

Take Notes, Ron

March 12, 2016

This is how it is done, Ron. This is how to keep everyone enthralled and enthusiastic. But why is it that this totally unqualified petty thief and convicted vandal, with a non-Silurian speech impediment,  can outclass you in every way? Does he perhaps possess the charisma of an idiot savant, whereas you possess only the arrogance of a savant idiot?

 

Awww, was it something we said? Well, it was very boring.

Sony ICD-UX

March 12, 2016

Many thanks to Alex Hill. Steve plans to order a Sony ICD-UX and to fix up a system to transfer the digital files into the computer here so that quality is optimized and size is minimized. The broadcasts by Robert Cheshire and yourself have made a huge impact worldwide over about five years. In the initial stages many thanks also to Simon Clifford. The first broadcasts were carried out here at home, with Simon in charge of the recording apparatus and computer interface. Then they were taken up by Robert Cheshire and then by Alex Hill. The idea now is to amplify the impact using youtube.”

So, how has that worked for you  so far? Just look at these:

Not exactly buzzing, are they? One can almost hear a mournful wind, and see tumbleweed. And those are expertly produced videos. One wonders just how much of a boring hash a ‘lone genius’ could make of a YouTube video. One like this perhaps?

If anyone can stay awake to the end, perhaps they could tell us how it finishes; a car-chase would be nice. What are the odds that comments are blocked or filtered for this video. After all, Ron really does not want to know what people think of him. The text is, of course, a tissue of lies. Apart from anything else, Schwarzschild did not ‘die of disease in the trenches’, he died at home from an autoimmune affliction.

Nice to see that Ron can respond to criticism

FOR POSTING: Latest version of “New Poetry”

March 11, 2016

This is the latest version, in which a section on new englynion is added to the Miltonian sonnets and prose poetry.”

By the way, Ron, you should proof-read your ongoing biography more carefully; there are some faults that a spell-checker cannot detect! Here are a couple, for free: Dalek is a proper noun, and it is Monty Python; not Monte Python. Here is a very telling line from this work, “Physics had laboratories somewhere, but it was a subject that I loathed and dropped at the end of the first year”. Well, Ron, the loathing is now mutual.

Pleasure! Your work is famous throughout the scientific world for its integrity, so the zealots have been utterly routed.”

This pseudoscientific clown brings shame upon the accolade on a daily basis. He does this by ticking every box required for the career loony-tune: (a) Is Einstein wrong? Yes (and I don’t demur when my mate Michael Jackson tells people that Einstein was a tool of the Rockefellers and also helped the Nazis to build antigravity machines). (b) Is perpetual-motion (e.g. Bessler Wheel, Bedini, Searl, Bearden and Johnson devices, cold-fusion/LENR, etc.) possible? Yes, yes, yes, a thousand times yes. (c) Is antigravity possible? Of course, the Levitron is an antigravity device (my mate Kellum says so). Also, my other mate, John Searl, built 41 flying-saucers which were then rendered invisible and sent into space so as not to be a menace to world peace. (d) Do you believe in crank cancer cures? Yes, I even broke the law (being an unqualified person) by writing an open-letter, backing the Priore scam, and sending it to a stooge of my mate, ‘Dr’ (degree-mill) Bearden.   Please do the decent thing, Ron. Or do the other decent thing, and resign.

Checking 342(3) : Light Deflection by a Gas of Massive Gravitons

March 11, 2016

Many thanks for this check, much appreciated as usual. The theory is at a stage where a systematic application can be made of ECE2 to gravitation. In this theory an oscillating mass radiates gravitons in the same way as an oscillating charge radiates photons (radiation theory). So the atoms and molecules inside any mass radiate gravitons.”

Jeez, General Relativity-101, Ron: an oscillating mass cannot be a source of gravitational radiation. We knew that you would fall into that trap. Until you can appreciate why that is so, you should give up all pretensions to being capable of correcting everybody else. Here is another clue for the ‘hard-of-thinking’: what exactly is making the mass oscillate? Do you even begin to see a glimmer of where the problem is? Perhaps you could ask your fellow Fellows. Oh dear, that will not work; they are even more pig-ignorant about physics than you are.

Stephen (Sam Spade) Crothers ‘The Scholar’ LOL

LIGO Rebutted by Crothers

March 9, 2016

This is an important new paper by the scholar Stephen Crothers. There is no basis whatsoever for any of the twentieth century concepts built on the erroneous Einstein theory, because the latter is built on a fundamentally erroneous geometry. This conclusion has swept the world of science.”

It seems almost superfluous to point out that vixra* is the crackpot-version of arXiv, the academic-run open-access pre-publication website. It is perhaps less superfluous to point out that the Hadronic Journal is one of the oldest surviving crackpot-friendly ‘academic’ publications and was founded by the loony, Santilli. Ron seems to have forgotten his previous connections with Santilli. In the ‘good old days’ there was:

but then came,

https://drmyronevans.wordpress.com/2012/09/10/jeremy-dunning-davies-self-styled-professor/

He is a ‘professor’ at his own fake ‘institute’, just like Ron at his. In fact, Ron was once made an honorary ‘professor’ at Santilli’s fake institute, but everybody seems to have forgotten that.

Daily Report will Resume Tomorrow

March 9, 2016

I am “one day ahead” in the usual early morning report because the stats arrive here about mid morning and are reported early the following morning. The feedback is ultra important in trying to persuade the powers that be to stop wasting our tax payers’ money on ideas that are complete rubbish. There is a vast, silent college of colleagues who completely reject the totalitariansim of the dogmatists – the Ministry of Truth. They are wisely silent because they will be subjected to harassment of they speak out. They would probably land up losing their jobs. Such is the real nature of our society, and it is dangerously unhealthy. Very close to Orwell in “Animal Farm” and “1984”.”

It is quite obvious that the ‘stats’ are nothing more than internet ‘white noise’ and are absolutely meaningless. It does not count as ‘feedback’ if you do not know who the people are, or what their opinions might be. The only waste of tax-payer’s money at issue here is your Civil List Pension. There is no ‘vast silent college’; there is a non-existent one. No matter how cowed you claim its members to be, there is nothing to stop them from inundating you with congratulatory e-mails, nothing to stop them from favorably reviewing the Penderghastly biography (or your other ‘scrap paper’), nothing to stop them from ‘correcting’ the universally bad reviews of that biography and nothing to stop them from posting anonymous laudatory videos on YouTube (as Searl fans do). Our own monitoring method (and the fact that even you have still not spotted it doubly reinforces our point) shows that nobody – except we skeptics and your loony gang-members – takes the slightest interest in your rantings. We know who the chief Orwellian pig is, and so does everybody else.

Further Criticisms by Steve Crothers

March 8, 2016

I certainly hope they accept it. In the past some radical ideas have come from the Ivy league, notably Compton’s experimental proof of wave particle dualism at Princeton, and our very own B(3) field from Cornell, currently the world number four by webometrics. It would do any university a power of good to have Professor Crothers on the faculty.”

We predict that the paper will not be accepted. Why? There is now a huge number of so-called ‘predatory’ journals (one dodgy publisher launched 44 of them on the same day!) which have taken advantage of the apparently laudable trend towards open-access publication. It is a racket because these journals charge pathetic would-be scientists (like Ron and Sam Spade), who could never meet the standards of real journals, a lot of money per page. To maximize profits, the ‘editors’ then let through mind-bogglingly ludicrous ‘papers’. One ‘mathematical’ paper explained why, although two people may always differ in age, the ratio of their ages will diminish with time. Can you believe that such tripe was published in a so-called academic journal? It barely goes over the head of Sesame Street! However, looking at past issues of the journal to which Spade has sent his nonsense, it seems that this is a bona fide journal. How can the layman distinguish a good journal from a bad one? The main clue is that loony writers are always negative saying, like Ron and Spade, that all of real physics is wrong. Real journals contain papers which seek to explicate and clarify awkward aspects of experimentally-supported theories. For the newcomer, we add that Crothers is not a professor, has never been a professor and never will be a professor (except in the minds, and ‘institutes’,  of other crackpots). He told the Natural Philosophy Alliance (a nest of the worst pseudoscientists) that he was a gardener and odd-job man. He told Facebook that he was a private detective. The only thing that is certain is that he is a failed PhD student who could not understand the subtleties of mathematics as applied to General Relativity.

Noted

As Armiger I have been working with the police for years to bring some order into the chaotic traffic conditions in Mawr. Cars are parked randomnly on pavements and I have never seen a traffic warden. At the request of the police I have been logging traffic offences on Rhyddwen Road, especially the problem of parking right on the junction with Mountain Road, and directly opposite. This is a regular double dashed line junction. The two offences this week involve KVH VMX”

You may have hit pay-dirt there, Ron. If that is the correct (UK) registration number, then the vehicle does not appear to be ‘legal’ (or is so old that certain regulations do not apply).  

Thanks to the South Wales Police

Many thanks to the South Wales police for getting KV11 VMX to move in incident number 954 of 3/3/16 and reference 1600074563 of 4/3/16.”

Gravitational Sources

In theory, gravitational waves of any frequency can be produced by an oscillating mass density.”

Poor Ron, you are getting very close to committing that fundamental error to which we alluded recently. Master the subject before pretending to make advances in it! Here is a hint: Newton’s third law still applies.

Agreed with Franklin, in the service of humankind”

Poor Ron, if only you could have been content with a modest career in chemistry instead of getting mixed up with all of these confidence-tricksters and trying to play the physicist just to provide theoretical ‘support’ for their scams. We pointed out yesterday just how badly you had been burned by your infatuation with Bearden and his ludicrous/deceptive MEG contraption. But still you carry on, making the same mistake with regard to Searl, Hill-of-Beans and ‘Ideotic’.  Why not give up this nonsense right now, instead of daily adding more fuel to our fire?

Conmen, Crafty as Monkeys

March 2, 2016

A relatively simple device called the Motionless Electromagnetic Generator (MEG) (US Patent #6,362,718 March 26, 2002) has been widely publicized on the Internet. We constructed our own MEG using detailed construction plans from an independent lab that reportedly had successfully replicated the excess power results. The initial results with our MEG also apparently showed excess power but we soon learned why. The MEG operates at high audio frequencies and delivers several hundred volts and a few milliamperes to a load resistor. This current was being measured using a 10-ohm current-viewing resistor in series with the load resistor. With only a few milliamperes of current through this resistor, the voltage developed is only a few tens of millivolts. At these frequencies it is almost impossible to accurately measure this small voltage while in intimate proximity to the output voltage, which is 4 orders of magnitude higher. Capacitive coupling between the voltmeter or scope leads significantly elevated the observed voltage across the current viewing resistor resulting in overestimation of the output power. Supporting this conclusion was the lack of heating in the load resistor that should have occurred had the apparent output power been correct. When we changed the current viewing resistor to 1000 ohms, which did not significantly affect the load impedance, the apparent excess power disappeared.” [42nd Joint Propulsion Conference Report, published by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2006].

But, Ron, was that not the invention of former AIAS Fellow ‘Dr’ Thomas Bearden? Did not you and many of your ‘academic’ friends write papers ‘explaining’ how it extracted energy from space-time? Did you not (as editor) let Bearden write about it in a (previously reputable) chemistry journal?  Hey, does that not mean that the internet is a poor source of valid information, that Bearden is a conman, that the AIAS is rubbish … and that you are rubbish? And Ide is still pulling a similar trick. Can you not see that?
