Tesla offers Off-Grid Power

The amazing Power Wall Battery of Tesla was announced last May 2015, the answered to unplug or off-the-grid living or your home totally independence in power source company. Today it is possible to run a home on solar and wind, weather can quickly wreak havoc on your plans and can swiftly bring down even the best off-grid power setup.

Elon Musk’s company Tesla is introducing a new energy storage solution that could revolutionize the renewable energy industry. The Powerwall, or Tesla Home Battery, is a wall-mounted energy storage unit — a rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack– that can hold 10 kilowatt hours of electric energy, and deliver it at an average of 2 kilowatts, all for US$3,500. Powerwall, which works like most other renewable energy storage systems.

Not cheap at all, but eventually it will free us to electric bills hike.

The Powerwall, by Tesla, is designed to hold a lithium-ion battery pack, liquid thermal control system, and software that receives dispatch commands from a solar inverter. It can be easily mounted on the wall and can even be integrated with the local grid for those who are just looking for an emergency backup power solution.

Powerwall: How it works

The Powerwall comes in a 10 kWh weekly cycle — for backup applications — and 7 kWh for daily cycles. If a home/business has a greater energy need, multiple batteries can be stored — up to 90 kWh total for the 10 kWh battery and 63 kWh total for the 7 kWh battery. The Powerwall generates 2.0 kW continuous and 3.3 kW during peak usage. It weighs 220 pounds and can be installed indoors or outdoors. The battery technology is lithium ion.

Tesla claims their battery can provide a number of different benefits to the customer including:

Load shifting – The battery can provide financial savings to its owner by charging during low rate periods when demand for electricity is lower and discharging during more expensive rate periods when electricity demand is higher

Increasing self-consumption of solar power generation – The battery can store surplus solar energy not used at the time it is generated and use that energy later when the sun is not shining

Back-up power – Assures power in the event of an outage

Moca the cost effective mobile medical diagnostics

The software called Moca has been developed to run on Android, this is a new mobile application that enables easy diagnosis of patients in remote areas. Moca integrates the Android based medical diagnosis application with the open source OpenMRS medical records database system.

The project was started with a mission to provide flexible and scalable IT architecture to empower social entrepreneurs and NGOs to scale rural health diagnosis using mobile information and communication technologies.

An initial trial is set to happen in the Philippines, home of the project’s lead Dr. Leo Celi, where the device promises to be a boon to that country’s remote areas where there is a lack of doctors.

Left Leg Cramps….

In the middle of night, I woke up shouting, there was a terrible pain (cramps) at the back of my lower lower leg… SAKIT … Sobra nataranta si Gerry.

Tapos kanina umaga, di ko na mag-angat yung left leg ko. It was a terrible pain…. So I decided to visit my doctor… Wala palang OPD Doctors sa umaga… Wala kami choice kundi mag-pa consult sa Emergency Room Doctor…

It was awful conversation. Aside sa pananakot, he just recommend me to put salompas at a dose of pain reliever…. Kakainis… So I research some information about cramps…

Left cramps >> Key points for people with leg cramps

  • People who get leg cramps feel a sudden pain in their leg, often at night.
  • Leg cramps occur when a muscle or group of muscles suddenly tightens.
  • Most cramps happen in calf muscles, but you can also get cramps in your thigh or in your foot.
  • Being middle-aged or older, exercising, an imbalance of minerals (electrolytes), problems with blood circulation, or being pregnant may all lead to leg cramps.
  • Leg cramps may be a side effect of certain medications.

Some advise on how to treat night time legs cramps:

1. Prevention. Applying a heat pad to your muscles for 10 to 15 minutes before sleep can be of assistance. When cramps occur during sleep, it’s usually because of an amplification of a muscle reflex that happens normally. As you roll over in your sleep, your calf muscles contract and along with them, the tendons stretch. Nerve stretch receptors in the tendon come alive and relay a message to the spinal cord instructing the calf muscles to contract, or spasm. You may not be aware of this at times, but at other times, the muscles will not relax and they will cause pain. Stretching your calf muscles before bedtime can help to exhaust the stretch reflex.

2. Calf stretching exercise

  1. Stand about 3 feet from a wall, facing it.
  2. Step forward with your left foot.
  3. Put your hands on the wall at chest level. Bend your elbows slightly and have shoulders, hips and feet aimed towards the wall.
  4. Bend your left knee gently and feel the stretch in your right calf muscle as you do so. Keep both heels on the ground at all times.
  5. Hold the stretch for at least 15 seconds.
  6. Repeat with the other side.

3. Treatment. The best treatment for night time leg cramps as they occur is to try and stretch the muscle, walk around or massage the area firmly to aid circulation. A heat pack may be helpful but usually, the pain is so pronounced that a heat pack may seem to be too passive an idea to be successful.

Potassium and calcium supplements or adding foods to the diet that are rich in these elements have been shown to reduce the incidence of night time leg cramps. Maintaining your hydration levels is important, especially if you’ve been exercising vigorously. When you sweat, you lose salts from your body and a sports drink can help to replace the electrolytes lost. Diuretic chemicals can also contribute to a loss of important elements.

How Many Starbucks is too many?

Holiday flavored coffee was a big hit at Starbucks. I loved the Hot Peppermint Mocha, I missed it and got stuck on hot mocha today. When you are working at Ortigas Center you can visit the SM Mega, Pearl Drive, Robinson, Shangri-la and Poduim coffee shop.

I also enjoyed collecting stickers for the diary. Thanks PUTAK!, she helped me filling up the stickers, imagine you must spent Php 2670 to have it…

Well PUTAK cannot work in morning without a dose of Frappucino Mocha Grande… That’s reason they built 30 Starbucks Retail Stores in Makati and almost a hundred in Luzon, for a caffeine lover like us. Come to think of it, when I am working at Ayala, there is a Starbucks in every corner. Gosh….

Dont you know there was a study and they found out that those who consumed “moderate” amounts of coffee, defined as four to seven cups per day, faced the lowest risk of death from heart disease! GOOD FOR YOU PUTAK!
