Boosting Your Confidence Through Meditation
Real and ordinary confidence are two different things. The former is based on a relationship or reference point, while the latter is influenced by something outside yourself. For instance, if you’re feeling confident because you’re comparing yourself to someone else, it might be because you’re relating to that individual or something outside of yourself.
What is genuine confidence? It’s not about relationships or comparisons. It’s about experiencing a sense of self-worth and goodness, regardl...

PPAs Effect on Renewable Energy
A power purchase agreement, also known as PPAs, allows a company to purchase electricity at a fixed price for a long time. This type of deal eliminates the need for a company to worry about the volatility of the power market.
Why they matter
For power producers, investing in new facilities is a huge financial undertaking. For a long time, these investments have been supported by government subsidies. These help ensure that the producers receive the best possible price for their power.
Due to ...
Intermittent Generation and the Importance of Energy Storage
Intermittent generation refers to the availability of electricity for a specific period of time. When the weather is unfavorable, the efficiency of wind, solar, geothermal, and hydropower decreases, which can result in inconsistent and unreliable electricity generation. Because of this, these technologies can’t provide year-round electricity.
Hydropower, a significant component of global electricity generation, is affected by seasons and water currents. Wind and solar power rely on varying fa...
Nanotechnology: Pushing Cannabis into a New Era
Nanotechnology refers to science and engineering involving the design, construction, and manipulation of single atoms and molecules. In the cannabis industry, this technology is commonly utilized in hydrosoluble nanoemulsions. This process involves using water and oil to encapsulate the microscopic cannabinoids.
This technology opens up new opportunities for the development of functional and safe cannabis products, similar to the manufacture of over-the-counter medications.

How Wind Turbines Have Evolved
Over the millennia, humans have been using the wind to power various objects. In the 1st century AD, mathematician and engineer Heron of Alexandria created a windwheel, which he then used to make “flute-like noises.”
Wind power disappeared in the 7th century AD when we came across windmills in Iran that were used to pump water and grind flour. The discovery of electricity during the 1700s was the next significant development in our story.
In 1887, James Blyth became the first person to create...
Powering Your Home With Renewable Energy
Renewable energy sources can help lower energy costs and reduce carbon footprint. They can also make your house more sustainable.
Various natural sources such as water, wind, sunlight, and biomass produce renewable energy. These energy sources replenish naturally. Utilizing these natural resources has led to the development of what is known as “green energy.” Unlike petroleum and coal, which are known to release greenhouse gases, these energy sources do not. By shifting away from these energy...
How Deep Breathing Helps Reduce Stress
The respiratory center of the brain controls breathing. When stressed, our breathing patterns and rate change due to the fight or flight response. We can control our breathing, and it can help us manage stress and other conditions. Numerous studies have shown that taking control of one’s breath can help improve one’s performance in various forms of meditation and yoga.
Deep Breathing and Stress
The primary function of breathing is to remove carbon dioxide from the air and absorb oxygen. Some ...
