Van Praagh's Spirit Guides

In his book, Talking to Heaven, James Van Praagh writes about spirit guides that sometimes come through when he is giving readings or in a trance state. He considers these spirits to be the same as guardian angels, and describes two types: "personal guides"—people known in earlier incarnations, and "mastery" guides-- spirits that have expertise in a particular area. Here are some of Van Praagh's guides: Master Chang—appearing as a Chinese man circa the early 1900's, with a bald head and goatee, he is "surrounded by gold light of the highest spiritual realm."Harry Aldritch—An authoritative English doctor, who died in the 1930's-- he helps to identify physical ailments of Van Praagh's clients. Golden Feather—A North American Indian who shares messages of brotherhood. Sister Theresa—A nun with "brilliant blue eyes" who works with Van Praagh to teach compassion.

Mysterious Signals

Wednesday's first hour guest,Seth Shostak of the SETI Institute discussed a recent New Scientist article which reported on mysterious radio signals, that some posit could be coming from an ET source. He believes the story is being over-hyped, as nothing has been proven as of yet about the signals which are just one of many candidates derived from the SETI@home Project.

Hydrogen Fuel Cells

Fuel cells are essentially inexhaustible batteries -- as long as they're supplied with fuel, they don't lose charge. Within a fuel cell a simple electrochemical process takes place that converts hydrogen and oxygen into electricity, with heat and water as the only emissions. Every fuel cell consists of an electrolyte membrane sandwiched between two electrodes: a positive electrode called an anode and a negative electrode called a cathode. Hydrogen (or hydrogen-rich fuel) is passed over the anode where a catalyst splits it into ions and electrons. The electrons cannot pass through the electrolyte material and instead travel around it via an electrical circuit to reach the other side of the cell. This flow of electrons is electricity.The following U.S. Department of Energy animation illustrates how a fuel cell uses hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity.*This animation requires Macromedia Flash Player to be installed on your computer.
