For Frank Lampard, however, a spot of sanity and boredom will have been welcome. This was the first goalless draw of Lampard’s Stamford Bridge reign as Chelsea cured their defensive incontinence against European football royalty. This clean sheet will have felt almost as good as a victory for the Blues boss, such had been the growing discontent with his team’s defending. Here though, was a first true glimpse of the new Chelsea - with all six of the club’s major signings on the pitch at once for the same time. And it all looked more solid than it had done for most of last season and...

    With the goal of the most massive and efficient use of renewable energy, a team of scientists from the University of Cambridge (England) claim to have built an independent device that can mimic photosynthesis (the process that plants use to convert light solar energy) and converting sunlight, carbon dioxide and water into liquid fuel. The study, published in the journal Nature Energy, describes a new method that allows the production of clean fuel while also being completely wireless. By not requiring electrical input, Researchers believe that this carbon-neutral power generation method could be expanded to produce large amounts of fuel in a sustainable way, and used in the future to produce massive solar farms made up of cells that perform the artificial photosynthesis. At last: artificial photosynthesis The device is based on an advanced “photo sheet” technology u “photographic sheet” and converts sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water into oxygen and formic acid, a storable fuel. This type of fuel can be used directly in specially developed generators or by converting it into hydrogen, according to the...
