GOOD NIGHT, DARKNESS
Apart from speckles of light around the biggest cities, much of Africa is dark. Of all the measures of the continent’s poverty, few are starker than that about two-thirds of its people have no access to reliable electricity. The number of Africans without any power is 620 million, most of them in villages and on farms. The African Progress Panel (APP) found that in nine African countries fewer than one in five primary schools had lights. A study by the World Health Organization found that about a quarter of clinics and hospitals in 11 African countries have no power of any kind, and many of the rest get it from generators that often break down or run out of fuel. If you don’t have electricity you don’t have a fridge, and if you don’t have a fridge hospitals can’t store vaccines. They rely on expensive backup generators, so the electricity they use is among the costliest in the world. This is the biggest single barrier to development.
Adding a house to the grid even in a compact country such as Rwanda typically costs about $2,000, which is more than the country’s average annual income per person. The APP reckons that expanding grid power across Africa to reach almost everyone would cost $63 billion a year until 2030, compared with the $8 billion a year that is being spent now.
Another set of innovations is offering to sidestep this problem with mini rooftop solar installations that can power a home, or slightly larger “micro-grids” that can light up a village. Rooftop solar systems usually consist of a small solar panel and a small rechargeable battery and controller which typically powers four lights, a radio and a phone charger. Most systems have a built-in connection to the mobile-phone network that allows the provider to switch it on or off remotely. Instead of shelling out $250 or so upfront for an entire system, customers can buy electricity for the equivalent of 50 cents a day using mobile money. If they run out of cash, their power is cut off until they are in funds again. Thanks to this new “paygo” model, venture capital is pouring into an industry that now has at least half a dozen significant firms. The largest of them, M-Kopa, has electrified more than 500,000 homes and is adding almost 200,000 more a year. Across the industry as a whole perhaps a million families now have rooftop power. At current rates of expansion, the total may double every 18 months or so.
Prices for these systems are also falling fast. The Global Off-grid Lighting Association reckons that prices of small solar-powered lights fell by 80% between 2010 and 2015. It forecasts that those for a large home system, including low-powered lights, television and radio, will fall by 45% between now and 2020.
The electrifying growth of rooftop solar energy is now sparking another round of innovation, some of which may in time travel back to the rich world. Azuri Technologies, a company based in Cambridge, England, is programming its systems to forecast how much power each household will use that evening. It then subtly adjusts the brightness of lights or the television to reduce power consumption on cloudy days.
If you want to drive the productive use of electricity and move people up the economic ladder, then you need a mini-grid. Once small holder farmers have electricity, they quickly adopt a range of other technologies such as irrigation pumps and smart phones to get long-term weather forecasts. You then soon find support industries springing up to feed this higher level of economic activity in the villages, together with a general increase in well-being.
Mobile-phone companies can become anchor customers of mini-grids. That would help to secure the finance needed to build the grid, but also to reduce one of mobile-phone companies’ biggest expenses: diesel for the generators that power their masts. By one estimate this accounts for as much as 60% of the cost of operating their networks in Africa. Mini-grids can thus help to spread not just energy but, just as important, phone and Internet connectivity.
THE MINI GRID PROBLEM
The main problem with rooftop solar systems is that they produce only small amounts of power. But they cannot run power-intensive machines such as welders or mills.
ENTER THE HUG!
The primary technology is the creation of kinetic energy from the use of the HUG in a river, waterfall, or rapids. In fact, there are over 100 patents related to capturing kinetic energy, but none to date have been commercialized. That is because of the necessary threshold of the velocity of the current required: 3.1 meters per second and very fast currents average around 2 m/s.
Let us contrast the potential energy of a dam with that of the kinetic energy of a moving current of water without the use of a dam. If one considers an appropriate machine for a dam for extracting energy from the potential energy in the static pressure drop of a stream of water traveling at about 5 mph, and falling 0.002 ft. in a 100 ft. machine length it can be calculated that the stream is conveying energy at the rate of only about 0.60 ft. lb./sec. for each square foot of stream, equivalent to about 1/1000 horsepower.
On the other hand, the kinetic energy of this stream is much larger. It can be calculated that the same square foot of stream will be bringing kinetic energy into the machine at a rate of about 380 ft. lb./sec., which is about 0.7 horsepower, or 700 times larger.
The HUG adds another four to five times the increase of velocity created from its vortex. The turbine’s power is proportional to the cube of its average velocity. Thus, a doubling of the average speed of the flow results in an eightfold increase in its power. This energy, which this current form ‘generates’, can be seen in the energy of a tornado. The secret is in the vortex.
In typical rapids with a 3 m drop, a set of 6 HUG Turbines will generate a total of 260 kW/turbine or 1.56 MW.
The HUG is a damless system that uses kinetic power of moving water. Rapids can add 70 MW power without impacting on the environment. Africa could benefit from its kinetic power of water from rapids. This would provide a return on investment within just a few years.
Now let’s explain the real reason for the HUG: POWER
The formula for Kinetic Energy is KE= ½ x A x V 3 x (.35) efficiency (A = area swept; Velocity). The area of the throat of the HUG is 3.26 m2
Acceleration = a = g (acceleration of gravity) = 9.8 m/sec
(Final Velocity)2 = 2 x a x s (distance dropped) =(2 x 9.8 m/sec x 3.05 m)= (7.7 m/sec)2
Kinetic Energy = ½ x 3.26 m2 x (7.7 m/s*)3 x .35 = 260 kW/turbine x 6 units = 1.56 MW

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.
HOW DO WE KNOW THIS?
Some Christian disciples use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.
2. COMPLETE SENSE OF PEACE?
After you have been delivered from evil influences, you will have a definite physical experience of a complete sense of peace.
Once you experience a physical sense of peace because of deliverance, you know that you will be healed. This helps you build up your faith, which is very crucial: No faith! No healing!
Some Christian disciples have the gift of healing. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
THE WHOLE FAMILY BENEFITS
In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions shows a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?
- Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.”
- Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
- Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength.
- Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
- Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
- Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
- Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.
Christianity on a Table Napkin:
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin. “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.” Luke 1: 49
Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”? And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”. Isaiah 1:18
You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.
