Z5

Zion Badash

 

Israeli boy wonder invents Z5 device to reduce car emissions, gas usage.

 

Zion Badash, 18, from Savyon, has invented a device to reduce emissions from internal combustion engines in most vehicles by as much as 40 percent and significantly cut gasoline consumption.

The compact contraption called Z5 has no moving parts and can be easily self-installed in cars.

After two years of research and development, it went on the market three months ago - and by all accounts is selling like hot cakes.

The story of the Z5 began two years ago, when Badash was 16.

"I was walking down the street in Tel Aviv, noticing how hard it was to breathe and watching the exhaust come out of cars, and it really personally bothered me," he said.

"I came back home and thought to myself, 'Even after all of the technological advances, it still seems like an old movie with black smoke belching out behind the cars.'

"At that time, I didn't have a lot of knowledge about engines. I knew that there must be some problem with the engine's combustion [to have all that black smoke coming out] and I knew that an engine is about the combination of two elements: gas and air. I started looking into the gasoline side, but there had been lots of efforts to improve the gas - all sorts of additives - and none had really worked.

"So I started to think about the air side. I realized that if I wanted to change anything, I had to treat the air before it reached the combustion chamber."

From that initial brainstorm, after much trial and error, the Z5 emerged.

Jerusalem Post

Zion Badash, 18, from Savyon, has invented a device to reduce emissions from internal combustion engines in most vehicles by as much as 40 percent and significantly cut gasoline consumption.

 

The compact contraption called Z5 has no moving parts and can be easily self-installed in cars.

After two years of research and development, it went on the market three months ago - and by all accounts is selling like hot cakes.

"Some of the people who come to us want to reduce their emissions and others want to save money on gas," Badash told The Jerusalem Post on Friday.

While it is being marketed for automobiles, the Z5 will theoretically work with any type of engine, from huge electric turbines to home generators.

The initiative has been a private one, with no government funding contributing in any way, according to Z5 marketing director Eli Mor. Zion's father is securing the patent.

"We've started marketing the Z5 in Israel, Turkey, Great Britain, the US and on the Internet," Mor told the Post. "It goes for $208. We are also in negotiations with automobile manufacturers."

According to an IBA English News report on the Z5, a government-approved mechanic independently confirmed that the device reduced emissions in all sorts of vehicles, from trucks to cars.

The story of the Z5 began two years ago, when Badash was 16.

"I was walking down the street in Tel Aviv, noticing how hard it was to breathe and watching the exhaust come out of cars, and it really personally bothered me," he said.

"I came back home and thought to myself, 'Even after all of the technological advances, it still seems like an old movie with black smoke belching out behind the cars.'

"At that time, I didn't have a lot of knowledge about engines. I knew that there must be some problem with the engine's combustion [to have all that black smoke coming out] and I knew that an engine is about the combination of two elements: gas and air. I started looking into the gasoline side, but there had been lots of efforts to improve the gas - all sorts of additives - and none had really worked.

"So I started to think about the air side. I realized that if I wanted to change anything, I had to treat the air before it reached the combustion chamber."

From that initial brainstorm, after much trial and error, the Z5 emerged. In layman's terms, the device, built from a special alloy, improves the air flow into the engine in such a way that the combustion is much more efficient. By being more efficient, the car both uses less fuel and produces fewer emissions.

How does a teenager with a dream and lots of will power actually create a product? Trial and error, according to Badash.

"We had an old large generator in our house that used to put out lots of black smoke. I started trying to put different metals into the air filter. Then I would measure the amount of gas used and try and gauge whether less black smoke was coming out."

"It took a long time, with a lot of trial and error, until one day I realized that I was actually making a difference in the amount of smoke coming out," he recalled. "Well, I was very excited when I realized that I had discovered something which worked. It's not every day that a 16-year-old invents something.

"I went to my father and we took it to the next level. We spent two years perfecting it, finding the right metals. Now we've started to market it."

The next step for this budding inventor and entrepreneur is one familiar to most 18-year-olds here: Badash will soon be drafted into the IDF.

Asked whether he had any other ideas up his sleeve, Badash replied with a laugh, "We'll start with this right now and see where it goes."

 

18-VUOTIAS ISRAELILAINEN ON KEKSINYT MOOTTORIN TEHOA LISÄÄVÄN LAITTEEN
Jerusalem Post kirjoittaa 18-vuotiaasta ihmepojasta Zion Badashasta, joka on keksinyt laitteen, jolla auton päästöjä voidaan vähentää jopa 40 prosenttia ja vähentää merkittävästi polttoaineen kulutusta. Hän markkinoi tuotettaan suurella menestyksellä. Kahden vuoden tutkimuksen ja kehittelyn jälkeen laite nimeltä Z5 tuli markkinoille kolme kuukautta sitten ja sitä menee kuin kuumille kiville. Vaikka sitä markkinoidaan autoihin, niin Z5 toimii teoriassa kaikenlaisissa koneissa, suurista sähköturbiineista kotigeneraattoriin. Keksintö ja sen markkinointi on tehty yksityisellä pohjalla, eikä siihen ole saatu mitään rahoitusta valtiolta.

Zion Badash kertoo Jerusalem Postin haastattelussa, että idea Z5:sta sai alkunsa kaksi vuotta sitten, kun hän oli vasta 16-vuotias. "Kävelin katua pitkin Tel Avivissa, havaitsin kuinka vaikea oli hengittää ja katselin autojen pakokaasuja, ja se vaivasi minua henkilökohtaisesti", hän sanoi. "Siihen aikaan minulla ei ollut paljonkaan tietoa moottoreista. Tiesin, että moottorissa tapahtuvan palamisen kanssa täytyy olla ongelmia ja tiesin, että moottorissa yhdistyy kaksi elementtiä: polttoaine ja ilma. Aloin tutkia polttoainepuolta, mutta sitä puolta oli yritetty kehittää paljon ja mikään ei ollut kunnolla toiminut. Joten aloin miettiä ilmapuolta. Havaitsin, että jos tahdoin saada muutosta aikaan, niin minun täytyi käsitellä ilmaa, ennen kuin se menee polttokammioon."

Monen yrityksen ja erehdyksen jälkeen, työskenneltyään vanhan, suuren ja paljon savuttavan generaattorin kanssa Zion yritti laittaa eri metalleja ilmansuodattimeen. Lopulta syntyi Z5, laite joka on rakennettu erityisestä metalliseoksesta, mikä edistää ilman virtaamista moottoriin niin, että palamisesta tulee paljon tehokkaampaa. Sen seurauksena auto kuluttaa myös vähemmän polttoainetta. Z5-laitetta markkinoidaan Israelissa, Turkissa, Iso-Britanniassa, Yhdysvalloissa ja internetissä. Neuvotteluja käydään myös autojen valmistajien kanssa. Laite maksaa 208 dollaria.

Eulogy for Eretz Israel

Despite the anti-Israel media war in Europe, the long-time funding office of the PLO, Palestinian life expectancy increased from 48 to 72 years in 1967-1995. The death rate decreased by over 2/3 in 1970-1990 and the Israeli medical campaigns decreased the child death rate from a level of 60 per 1000 in 1968 to 15 per 1000 in 2000 for the "occupied" Palestinians at the West Bank. (An analogous figure was 64 in Iraq, 40 in Egypt, 23 in Jordan, and 22 in Syria in 2000). During 1967-1988 the amount of comprehensive school and second level polytechnic institutes for the Arabs was increased by 35%. During 1970-1986 the proportion of Palestinian women at the West Bank and Gaza not having gone to school decreased from 67 % to 32 %.  The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita in West Bank and Gaza increased in 1968-1991 from 165 US dollars to 1715 dollars (compare with 1630$ in Turkey, 1440$ in Tunis, 1050$ in Jordan, 800$ in Syria, 600$ in Egypt. and 400$ in Yemen). Israel has been forced to damage the very infrastructure she has constructed and administrated while hunting the weapons from the milittant "freedom fighters". Between 1967-1993 roads, system of siewers (gutters, ditches), electricity supply, water supply, schools, health care system, and social welfare system to the West Bank and Gaza.


Chaim Weizmann and Emir Feisal were companions and emphasized the racial relations and community between the Jews and the Arabs, in contrast to the European elitist thinking even officially in the Versailles treaty. What the English and French (and American, later on) colonialists were most afraid of, was the business collaboration between the Jews and the Arabs. When 'bestowing' independence, the old landlords did everything to knock down the close and friendly associations between those "cousins". Wahhabites to lead Arabia. Yasser Arafat's uncle to serve as the great mufti of Jerusalem, the most pathological hater of the Jews the could found. In 1948, there were altogether 23 countries that declared Jihad against Israel. Also there, England tried to ruin the business collaboration between the Jews and the Arabs: In its mandate, England prevented the Jews from preparing to the approaching war by forbidding the Jews to carry a gun, by the capital punishment. Only Jews were not allowed to gather arsenal. That is the main reason why so many Muslim countries declared the "holy" war: It was supposed to be an easy victory.

 

Tel Aviv (literally: Dumb-Hill of Spring) was plain desert at the beginning of the 20th century. Today, in the advent of its 100th year celebrations in 2009, it is the Silicon Wadi (Valley) of not only Mediterranean but of the whole globe since 1990's. The world has never seen such a rocket area of original Hi Tech innovations, I would say.

 

It is United States that profits from Israel, rather than the opposite. Israel has received substantial direct economic aid from the United States, including approximately $1.2 billion per year since the mid-1970's, although that regular annual amount has been being tapered off by $120 million per year beginning in 1998. In 2007, direct economic aid from the US amounted to $120 million, or about 0.07% of Israel's GDP. As a payback, Israel is not let to stop brain drain from Eretz israel to the US. Astonishing number of 25% of the Israeli researchers have moved from Israel to the United States - and this figure does not yet even include the people with double citizenship! The next largest brain drain of researchers to US are 12.2% from Canada, 4.3% from Netherlands, and 4.2% from Italy. Before the Second Intifada, there were nearly 200 Israeli companies listed in the US High Tech Nasdaq, after the II Intifada the count had dropped to about 100. (At the moment the number is higher, again, and it should be born in mind that the number did not drop below that from all the European countries combined. Besides, also the IT bubble was popped broken at the time globally, and at the early start of the Intifada II in 2000/2001 there was not yet a steep decrease.) Wikipedia lists 72 companies in Nasdaq in 2006: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Israeli_companies_quoted_on_the_Nasdaq. A list of about 150 companies was updated in 2007, of which 19 are over the counter, from end of 2007 (not only on NASDAQ but on the more strict New York Stock Exchange): http://israelnewsletter.com/israeli-stocks-trading-in-the-us/.
 

Dollars are green since the Americans pull them down from the tree raw and fresh. E.g. Mirabilis by AOL with $0.4 billion, Indigo and Mercury by HP with 0.7$ and 1.5 billion, respectively, M-systems by ScanDisk Corp (SNDK) with $1.5 billion were big investments, Berkshire Hathaway’s first investment out of the US of ISCAR Metalworking for 4$ billion, though. Israel has not been able to let any of its companies to be scaled up in their homeland but most are imported straight from the garage. The scaling up of industrial production would mean jobs to both Jews, Arabs and other ethnic groups. Israel is ordered to stay as some kind of innovation laboratory only, as the 51. state.

 

Over half of the export from Israel are High tech products (32 $ billion in 2007), compared to the 25% which is the average in the OECD countries. Israel's GDP is about $200 billion, nearly six times its original, relative per-capita level. Skyscrapers crowd Tel Aviv, multilane thruways, tunnels, fast trains and spaghetti junctions crisscross the country, and some 80 shopping malls, the first of which only opened in 1986. She harbours more museums per capita than any other country. She exhibits second highest output of new book per citizen. More patents per person than any other nation. More than 85% of solid waste in the country is treated in an environmentally sound manner. The shekel is one of the strongest currencies in the world, inflation is 2.5%, year 2007 growth of 5% was the developed world's highest for the fifth consecutive year, while unemployment slid to a 15-year low of 6.5%. In 2007, Israel had the 44th-highest gross domestic product and 22nd-highest gross domestic product per capita (at purchasing power parity) at US$233 billion and US$33,3, respectively. The country’s GDP by sectors is similar to that of developed countries with a leading services sector at around 67%, the industrial sector follows with 31% and agriculture is responsible for the remaining 3%. Israel’s major industrial sectors include a leading high tech industry, electronic and bio medical equipment, chemicals, metal products. The country is a member of the World Trade Organization and a trial member of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

 

In short, even the immigrant PhD's have to be humble enough to make their living by cleaning toilets before they get the hold of making living. Although the export of the agriculture has remained constant past the last 30 years, its relative amount has dropped from 70% to 3%. Out of the 3000 companies in Israel 80% are less than ten years old, and the average failure rate of these start ups is very low, less than 50%. More Israeli patents are registered in the US than from Russia, India, and China combined, despite the enormous population disadvantage (about 7 million in Israel vs. 2.5 billion combined in the other 3). One of the secrets of innovative success in Israel is the fact that cheating is minimized in the public funding: Money is not delivered according to research plans but steady income ("kassavirta") and thus the market analysis is emphasized. The support is designed so that the first 2-10 years a start-up company does not have to pay taxes. But very little, if any, direct funding without compensation is offered. Today, Israel draws Venture Capital (VC) more than the Europe. A novel phenomenon is the strategy by which Israel has been able to claim victory over China and other Far-East countries regarding the modern High Tech factories: As an example, the supranational Intel transferred the mass production of Centricon-processors to Israel, where ~20% of citizens possess university decrees (ranking 3rd in the world) but where the environment respects patents and are not plagiating every item they produce to others like the rocketting China. (China is a great country of thieves since the first dynasty and homogenizing extinguishment of the monotheistic Shang Ti faith and plural languages alike 2000 years ago. The Empire of Pirates steals every moving article in your machine. Not s single Finnish company has ever won a law suite in China, despite even evident violation of valid IPR, Intellectual Property Rights.)

 

Intel was also offered an overall tax rate of 10%, which is about three times lower than that of US. Also, the biggest generic drug factory in the world was recently established in Israel. Generating US$7 billion in annual revenues, Israel's Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (TEVA) is the world's largest generic pharmaceutical company. TEVA makes generic versions of brand-name antibiotics, heart drugs, heartburn medications, and more - in all close to 200 global generic products, 700 compounds, and more than 2800 dosage forms and formulations. TEVA's pharmaceuticals are used in some 20% of U.S. generic drug prescriptions. Examples of TEVA's generics include lower-cost equivalents of such blockbusters as anti-depressant Prozac and cholesterol drug Mevacor. TEVA also acquired Barr pharmaceuticals, putatively the world's largest biotech firm: http://www.schaeffersresearch.com/commentary/observations.aspx?ID=86110. Nevertheless, in biotechnology and original drug development, about 400 experimental drugs have been approved or accepted in clinical phases. Other major companies include cutting tools leader ISCAR, software and information security leader Checkpoint, and defense industry’s IAI. The greatest portion of funding of research per capita is found in Israel. Israel also has the greatest ratio of researchers per square meter or population in the face of the world, far exceeding I.e. Japan which was also raised by plagiation and copying of other peoples ideas after the WWII. A modern Western plague is the way nobody talks to each other. But the Israeli start-ups, in an ideal gas, are the opposite. They are urged to communicate together within the start-ups, leading to joint discoveries and inventions and shared IPR. Nobel prizes, by definition, are awarded to the people who have made the greatest services to the world. Although Sabin and Salk never got it with their free Polio vaccines, 21% of the Nobels have gone to this population of less that 17 million, taking both Eretz Israel and galut (diaspora) into account: http://www.helsinki.fi/~pjojala/Indicator.html; http://www.helsinki.fi/~pjojala/Nobel.htm.

 

Examples of modern Israeli inventions include: Microsoft Windows NT operating system; Intel Pentium MMX Chips; Gut cam ingestible pill video camera to diagnose digestive tract diseases; Heart attack Blood Test Diagnoses by phone; The first PC antivirus software in the world was developed in 1979 Israel; AOL Instant Messenger Software; Blue-Light non-UV skin damage-free acne treatment (Clearlight device that causes acne bacteria to self destruct without damaging the surrounding skin); Firewall internet security software (Checkpoint company); MacAfee crypting technology; first fully computerized radiation free diagnostic scanning device for breast cancer; Baby Sense prevents Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS); Seamless lingerie (Tafron provides for Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Banana Republic & Nike); More scientific papers per capita than any other nation (109 per 10,000 people); Tecnomatix inventions utilized in GM, Ford, Boeing and Lockheed Martin); Computerized system for ensuring proper administration of medications to reduce risk of human error (which kills 7000 patients in U.S. hospitals annually); Drip irrigation technology for farmers to conserve water; Highest number of solar-power water heaters per capita according to the Guinness Book of World Records; An Israeli company developed and installed one of the largest solar power plants in the world (Mojave desert in California); First cell phone at Motorola R&D lab; Non-exploitation labelling of diamonds (Daimond Exchange); Transchip and the first camera that fits on a single electronic chip; Eight county to launch satellites into space; Voice mail technology and SMS (Amdocs, Comverse, Nice Systems); VOIP technology etc.Israel was the destination for the first R&D centers outside the USA for Intel and Microsoft and also hosts R&D centers for Google and in the future for Yahoo! (Intel is located at Kiriat Gat near Beer Sheva. It is an odd combination of megaindustry and small town in the middle of nowhere. Microsoft etc. is located at Haifassa. The high-tech and bio-tech start ups often are located at Kiriat Weizman, which belongs to the city of Rehovotin which in practice means Tel Aviv since the distance is only 15 km. Most of the Tel Aviv sky crapers are found in Ramat Gan, which is on the opposite face to the Ayalon freeway.)

 

How has the world reacted to such an impact? Despite of it, one-fourth of the judgements of the Human Rights Commission of the United Nations strike Israel, compared to zero judgments to all the Islamic countries combined. Out of the incidences dealt in the Security Counsil one-third is having to do with Israel. I think this resembles the hysteria seen in the Black Plague in Europe, when the European Jews were accused of the pandemia and burnt alive. (As an example, one the biggest Jewish populations in the continent was in Basel, Switzerland, and all the 4000 souls were burnt in a Rhein island.)

 

As a matter of fact, the population of Arabs (my beloved friends and brothers) under the Israeli government was increased ten-fold (10X) in only 57 years. This is close to the world record for any tribe, nation, tongue or culture on the whole planet at the same time interval. The Sefardi Jews were expelled from Spain in the very date when Christoffer Colombo lifted up his anchors and sailed away from Spain. The Jews had to leave and their possessions were stolen. In the case of the Mizrahi, the Jews have lived for millennia all around the Middle East since the first exile of Israel 500 B.C., in what are now Muslim-dominated countries. While much has been made of the 700,000 Palestinians having been made homeless with the creation of the State of Israel in 1948, it's peculiar that there is no official recognition of their Jewish counterparts. A greater number of Jews - some 856,000 - were forcefully expelled from Arab countries after the creation of the State of Israel, their homes forfeited, their belongings seized. They became refugees, migrating to Israel, mainly. But they did not spoke any Hebrew but Arabic and Farsi (Persian).

Israel has been forced to damage the very infrastructure she has constructed and administrated while hunting the weapons from the milittant police forces after the release of prisoners and arsenal according to the Oslo accords. Between 1967-1993 roads, system of siewers (gutters, ditches), electricity supply, water supply, schools, health care system, and social welfare system to the West Bank and Gaza. Even for the Arab citizens of Israel, ideal was that everyody gets the same salar for the same job, with the same social benefits. This is stated in the law, officially. In contrast, even the official law in Jordan which has the peace treaty with Israel, it is forbidden for a Jew to live in the country. The health care services have been free for the Arab population, only a portion of the price of the drugs must have been paid by the patients. Under the administrations of Great Britain (1920-1947) or Jordan (1948-1967), no universities were established for the Arabs in the country. According to The Association of Arab Universities (
http://www.aaru.edu.jo/), in contrast, under the Israeli administration altogether six universities appeared during the time (of course by the force of the local Arab people, though). Also, since 1969 an independent newspaper has appeared in Jerusalem, which has never been put under a censorship. The Second Intifada could be called The Oslo War.

 

PLO was founded by the Arab League, not the Palestinians. Palestinians, whom I love, were and are USED. Used as a 'vanguard'. You can read it from the PLO articles directly: http://www.yale.edu/lawweb/avalon/mideast/plocov.htm 
"Article 14:  The destiny of the Arab nation, and indeed Arab existence itself, depend upon the destiny of the Palestine cause. From this interdependence springs the Arab nation's pursuit of, and striving for, the liberation of Palestine. The people of Palestine play the role of the vanguard in the realization of this sacred (qawmi) goal.


Article 7: It is a national duty to bring up individual Palestinians in an Arab revolutionary manner. All means of information and education must be adopted in order to acquaint the Palestinian with his country in the most profound manner, both spiritual and material, that is possible. He must be prepared for the armed struggle and ready to sacrifice his wealth and his life...


Article 10: Commando action ('FEDAYEEN' ) constitutes the nucleus of the Palestinian popular liberation war. This requires its escalation, comprehensiveness, and the mobilization of all the Palestinian popular and educational efforts and their organization and involvement in the armed Palestinian revolution... On this basis the Palestinian masses, regardless of whether they are residing in the national homeland or in diaspora (mahajir) constitute - both their organizations and the individuals - one national front working for the retrieval of Palestine and its liberation through armed struggle...Armed struggle is the only way to liberate Palestine. This it is the overall strategy, not merely a tactical phase."

 

Aviv is Hebrew for "spring", symbolizing renewal, and tel is an archaeological site that reveals layers of civilization built one over the other. The Jewish population has been such a layer of native culture not only in the Palestine, yet the expulsion of the native Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews from Pakistan to Morocco since 1948 is totally ignored in the European media: http://www.helsinki.fi/~pjojala/Expelled-Jews-statistics.htm. Don't You think for a blitch second that the industrial countries have desired peace in the Middle East. A collaboration between the Jews with their technology and science and Arabs with their oil, loyality and commitment has been the greatest nightmare of the Europe at least. The intimate friendship between the cousin nations, as officially declared by Chaim Weizmann and Emir Feisal in Versailles peace conference was deliberately mutilated. Expulsion of the native and national Jews from Muslim countries since 1948 has been al Nakba to nations from Pakistan to Morocco.

Jos painovoima loppuisi NYT! niin milloin se vaikuttaisi miljardin valovuoden päässä olevassa kohteessa? Tangentin suuntaisesti.
Valovuodet eivät ole ajan yksikkö. Valovuosi mittaa etäisyyttä, ei historiaa.

Edes valonnopeus ei mahdollisesti olekaan vakio ja saattaa rapistua asymptoottisesti arvoon 300 000 km/s.

Mutta  "gravitonia" ei ole vielä löydettykään. Se on liian nopea. Ajan lyhyt hysteria.

ûMÿMû

If Gravitation would stop to exist NOW! When would it be seen in a remote star?

 Straight via tangentia.

Light years are not a measure of time or history, but of distance.

 Even the speed of light may not be constant, after all, and may decay asymptotically to 300 000 km/s.

In contrast to the Photon, the "Graviton" has not been even found yet. It is so fast. The short hystery of time.
