"Connecticut is home to several large developers and manufacturers of fuel cells and a host of smaller, related companies," Diedrick added. "With these businesses, university research centers and smart public policies, we are well positioned to lead the nation as the global market for fuel cell expands."
...first heard about Pulstar I didn't believe a spark plug could do much to improve engine performance," said Pulstar performance expert Al Unser Jr. "After gaining five horsepower just by swapping out my premium spark plugs, I met with Pulstar's founder Lou Camilli to learn the science behind this. Now consumers can learn the same information to gain a better understanding of how pulsed power technology helps improve throttle response, increase torque and horsepower, improve fuel economy, and reduce tailpipe emissions."
"Mechanical engineering dates to ancient Greece and China, where mechanisms like screw pumps, steam engines, clocks, seismometers and even differential gears were invented,” according to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Pioneers in the field — people who built the machines for which they became famous — include Archimedes (Archimedes’ screw pump, block-and-tackle pulley, etc.), Johannes Gutenberg (movable-type printing press), James Watt (steam engine), Robert Fulton (steamboat), Eli Whitney (cotton gin) and Henry Ford(automobile assembly line)."
"HRM (Halifax Regional Municipality) and Sportsplex staff have been investigating the use of SolarWall technology to reduce the heating costs associated with this outside air use" said Richard Butts, chief administrative officer with the HRM
