VSF: Is the red blob out in the ocean the Coal Oil Point seep field ?
The Coal Oil Point seep field offshore from Santa Barbara, California is a petroleum seep area of about three square kilometres, adjacent to the Ellwood Oil Field, and releases about 40 tons of methane per day and about 19 tons of reactive organic gas (ethane, propane, butane and higher hydrocarbons), about twice the hydrocarbon air pollution released by all the cars and trucks in Santa Barbara County in 1990. The liquid petroleum produces a slick that is many kilometres long and when degraded by evaporation and weathering, produces tar balls which wash up on the beaches for miles around.
This seep also releases on the order of 100 to 150 barrels (16 to 24 m3) of liquid petroleum per day. The field produces about 9 cubic meters of natural gas per barrel of petroleum.
Leakage from the natural seeps near Platform Holly, the production platform for the South Ellwood Offshore oilfield, has decreased substantially, probably from the decrease in reservoir pressure due to the oil and gas produced at the platform.

THERMATE: Not to be confused with thermite.
Thermate is a variation of thermite and is an incendiary pyrotechnic composition that can generate short bursts of very high temperatures focused on a small area for a short period of time. It is used primarily in incendiary grenades.
The main chemical reaction in thermate is the same as in thermite: an aluminothermic reaction between powdered aluminium and a metal oxide.
In addition to thermite, thermate also contains sulfur and sometimes barium nitrate, both of which increase its thermal effect, create flame in burning, and significantly reduce the ignition temperature. Various mixtures of these compounds can be called thermate, but to avoid confusion with thermate-TH3, one can refer to them as thermite variants or analogs.
The composition by weight of Thermate-TH3 (in military use) is 68.7% thermite, 29.0% barium nitrate, 2.0% sulfur and 0.3% binder (such as PBAN). As both thermite and thermate are notoriously difficult to ignite, initiating the reaction normally requires supervision and sometimes persistent effort.
Because thermate burns at higher temperatures than ordinary thermite, it has military applications in cutting through tank armor or other hardened military vehicles or bunkers. As with thermite, thermate’s ability to burn without an external supply of oxygen renders it useful for underwater incendiary devices.

Nanoparticle research is an area of strong scientific interest due to the variety of potential applications in optical, biomedical, and electronic fields. In the last 10 years, aluminium/aluminum nanoparticles have been widely researched and used, primarily because of their increased reactivity as compared with conventional micron-sized particle.
Aluminium/aluminum (Al) is a Block P, Group 13, Period 3 element. The morphology of these particles is spherical and they appear as black or grey-black powder.
Care must be taken when handling metal nanopowders, so as to avoid any strong vibration or friction. Aluminium/aluminum nanoparticles are highly reactive, so measures should also be taken to protect the material from moisture, heat, and sunlight. These particles should be sealed in vacuum and stored in a cool and dry room.
Aluminium/aluminum nanoparticles are produced using the laser evaporation process. Using high purity aluminium/aluminum as raw material, high active aluminium/aluminum nanoparticles of high purity and small particle size, can be produced in large quantities at low cost.
Aluminium/aluminum nanoparticles are highly effective catalysts. When they are added into solid rocket fuel, it helps improve combustion speed and considerably increases combustion heat and combustion stability. The burning rate of solid propellant can be 5-20 times higher using aluminium/aluminum nanopowders compared to powders with larger particle sizes.

Aluminum (Al) Nanoparticles, nanodots or nanopowder are black spherical high surface area metal particles. Nanoscale Aluminum Particles are typically 10-30 nanometers (nm) with specific surface area (SSA) in the 30 – 70 m2/g range and also available in with an average particle size of 70 -100 nm range with a specific surface area of approximately 5 – 10 m2/g. Nano Aluminum Particles are also available in passivated and in ultra high purity and high purity, carbon-coated, and dispersed forms. They are also available as a dispersion through the AE Nanofluid production group. Nanofluids are generally defined as suspended nanoparticles in solution either using surfactant or surface charge technology. Nanofluid dispersion and coating selection technical guidance is also available. Other nanostructures include nanorods, nanowhiskers, nanohorns, nanopyramids and other nanocomposites. Surface functionalized nanoparticles allow for the particles to be preferentially adsorbed at the surface interface using chemically bound polymers.

Aluminum powder is a highly flammable powder created by grinding aluminum into fine grains. In times past, this flammable metal powder was used in photography to create bright flashes during a photographic session. Today, it’s one of the tools used in various applications of pyrotechnics, including the creation of fireworks displays.
Because of the combustible nature of powder aluminum products, there are a number of restrictions on its sale. In some countries, the powder is only available for purchase to businesses. Even in nations where it can still be purchased by individuals, it is not unusual for producers to only sell the powder to suppliers, who then sell small lots of it to residential customers.
While the use of aluminum powder as flash powder is the most readily recognized function of the compound, it can also be employed in the creation of wooden furniture and floors. Used primarily as an inlay compound, it can easily be used to set cut pieces of wood into position and also fill in any tiny gaps that may be present at the joints. Since only a minute amount of powder is necessary for functions of this type, the chances of ignition are somewhat limited.
Aluminum powder is best handled by professionals who know how to use the compound under controlled circumstances. Companies that produce fireworks displays for sports and municipal events are one example. When handled properly, the powder not only can produce spectacular visual effects, but also provide the loud booms that often add to the entertainment value of the fireworks display. Pyrotechnic professionals usually wear protective clothing, including gloves and safety goggles, in order to minimize direct exposure to the skin and eyes and also provide a barrier in the event that the powder ignites prematurely.
While vendors using aluminum often take a number of precautions, the highly explosive nature of the powder can lead to accidents in the most controlled environments. Should the powder come into contact with the eyes, they should be flushed immediately and continuously for at least 15 minutes. In the interim, emergency medical assistance should be summoned immediately.
Burns from the powder should also be treated with a continual flow of cold water as a means of cooling them and gently washing away any residue. If the powder is accidentally inhaled, the individual should be moved to fresh air immediately and in extreme situations, oxygen should be administered. In all circumstances, medical attention should be sought as quickly as possible to minimize the chance of any type of permanent damage.

(Tues.) Criminal weather manipulation continues on the West coast. The remnants of a superheated disturbance are flowing into Central & Southern California, yet there is little rain showing on the Doppler map over California! This disturbance had a 60% chance of hurricane formation two days ago but has been neutralized by microwave or laser. Heavy chemtrail spraying over Southern CA will prevent precipitation and maintain low RH and hot temperatures.
The television meteorologists say nothing! Mainstream television is a big part of this information coverup; these media networks need to be put out of business! A fire has erupted early this morning on Mt. Wilson, a 5700′ mountain which overlooks the Los Angeles basin and is the home of the 100′ Mt. Wilson observatory telescope.

1. How to disperse nanoparticles / nanopowders (nanomaterials)?
Disperse nanoparticles: 1. If used in the aqueous phase, may use ultrasonic treatment to disperse; 2. If used in oil phase, may use high shear mixing instrument to disperse. 3. If directly used as dry powder form, may use ball mill treatment to disperse. .
2. How to disperse nano-materials and mix with other powders?
How to disperse nano-materials and mix with other powder? There is no specific method of the world. It is still a research topic. In general, if one nanomaterial will be mixed with other powder (for example: your ceramic powder), the first step is to put the nanomaterial into water or ethanol in the high-speed mixing instrument, add 1% dodecyl benzene sulfonate (detergent main ingredients), Instantly after mixing, then put the dispersed nanomaterial into the other powder (your ceramic powder) and continue to mix by still using high-speed mixing instrument, stirring rate the higher the better, time the longer the better as well, and then heating the mixed liquid material to be evaporated completely.
3. The Methods of Nanoparticle Dispersions:
Rule: The smaller the particle size, the greater the surface area, the better the particle activity. That is, the nanoparticles can fully reveal the nano-properties..
Safety: Nanoparticles present possible dangers, both medically and environmentally. Most of these are due to the high surface to volume ratio, which can make the particles very reactive or catalytic.
They are also able to pass through cell membranes in organisms, and their interactions with biological systems are relatively unknown.

(Sat.) Looking at the East Pacific water-vapor loop tonight we see that the Jet Stream flow is being disrupted and steered away from a developing mid and upper lever low pressure system located off of the California coast! High pressure has been installed over California (we have rising barometric pressure 30.07″ currently at 10PM) to prevent that low pressure system from moving into California which would otherwise bring cool overcast skies, raise the RH and help stop those out-of-control wildfires from devouring more lives, homes, and landscape in Central CA. On the North side of this mid and upper level low pressure there is a narrow blockade of high pressure installed to re-route the Jet Stream moisture flow, which is preventing that moisture from flowing into the vortex of that mid and upper level low to intensify it.
We need rain in California now, and these terrorists controlling our weather are preventing that from happening. The blockade of the Jet Stream in tonight’s watervapor map is proof positive that covert manipulation is occurring. This blockade of the Jet Stream flow will never be shown on mainstream television! There is nothing normal about a moisture flow being blocked as it flows toward low pressure! The useful idiots reporting the weather know what is happening on those maps yet they say nothing. These celebrity media personalites are actively covering up this nefarious activity which demonstrates collusion between the corporate-owned media combine and its puppets, and Wall Streets’s interests, e.g., weather derivatives, catastrophe bonds, etc.
