Loulé RestaurantWeek

Loulé prepares to receive a week of haute cuisine - the RestaurantWeek
Cappucino of green soup with crispy chouriço (traditional tipycal saussage), black pork cheeks with vegetables and sweet potatoes, ice cream with coriander and chili-pepper.
The Chef Martijn Carte, and more 28 other Carte to prove in the best restaurants in the municipality of Loulé.

RestaurantWeek is the name of the initiative that was born in the U.S. in 1992.
Today, all American cities have RestaurantWeek annually. In Portugal, the RestaurantWeek already exists in Lisbon and Oporto.
Now comes to Loulé, begins on April 22 and ends on May 2. The RestaurantWeek with 29 restaurants to choose from.
The idea is to give everyone the chance to enjoy fine dining by a unit value of 20 euros (drinks not included), being sure that each meal, one euro goes to the Diocese of Madeira.
The event was officially presented on Tuesday in one of the participating restaurants, L'Olive, with the  Chef Martijn Carte, in the Vila Sol Algarve, Quarteira, in the presence of Jose Borralho responsible for undertaking proactive event, the Tryp Network, and the alderman of the House of Loulé, Joaquim Guerreiro.
After the success achieved in Lisbon and Porto, the Municipality of Loulé has contacted the Tryp Network to carry out the initiative in this county. Agreement signed. Joaquim Guerreiro argues that Loulé "has some of the best restaurants in the Algarve and Portugal, and it is very important to recognize this food."

It will be a week of haute cuisine based on typical products of the Algarve, as well as agricultural products produced by the region, and the fish caught around here.

José Borralho did point out that this initiative is not a form of balances in the restoration of high quality, as you say have seen so construed
"These restaurants have no such need. Join because they like the project and supportive of your hand, "he said.

In this first edition, the expectations are not very high, but still advanced the second councilman from the City Council, "there are already good signs, because there are already reservations to be made, despite the RestaurantWeek does not have great promotion."

Lunch or dinner at one of 29 participating restaurants require reservations to develop, which can only be made through the site ( website where information is made available on the restaurants and your letters

Magniwork Energy internet scam

Internet fraudsters are raking in thousands of dollars a day with an elaborate scam selling magnetic perpetual motion machines that are claimed to produce infinite free energy.

Since spring this year an operation called Magniwork has been selling a $50 DIY guide to building a perpetual motion device at home. On their web-site the fraudsters claim the materials are available in any local hardware store for less than $100. One estimate puts sales of the guide as high as 5,000 copies a month, making the scam worth up to $3m a year.

The claims for Magniwork are advanced via an extensive Google advertising campaign, and a network of blogs, web-sites and reviews endorsing the product. They are given further credibility by a clip of film from Sky News Australia about plans for a similar product made by a legitimate if optimistic research company called Lutec. Lutec patented its technology in 19 countries in 1999, but the product has still not seen the light of day. Off-Grid has discovered that the clip is over 8 years old.

Perpetual motion machine

Magniwork which describes its product as ‘a magnetic power generator’ claims to have invented a revolutionary off-grid power source that uses magnets to “power itself and create energy by itself, without requiring solar energy, heat, water, coal or any kind of resource.” The web-site promises the device will generate perpetual energy which will “fully power your home for free.”

However even the idea of such a device is dismissed by trained physicists. “The little explanation they give on their website makes no sense to me,” said Gunnar Pruessner, a lecturer in physics at Imperial College London. “For starters it breaks with all we know about quantum physics since Dirac, which says that we cannot tap into zero point fluctuations or virtual particles.”

Priceless IP

He observed that if the claims were true, they would mark the biggest advance in science ever. “It would bring a world-wide socio-economic revolution with incalculable political consequences. So you have to ask why are they scuzzing around selling their priceless IP (intellectual property) for a few dollars?”

Made in Macedonia

The site gives no way of contacting Magniwork -other than to order the guide. But its legal disclaimer reveals that despite the .com web address which suggests a US-based company, Magniwork is in fact located in Macedonia, a tiny republic on the northern border of Greece in Europe. “This Agreement shall all be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Macedonia applicable to agreements made and to be performed in Macedonia,” it reads. It has similarly proved difficult to identify the individuals behind the scheme. But one researcher claims to have written to the site’s web-master who referred in his reply to a man simply called “Igor”, the manual’s publisher.

Kernel of truth

Angry customers admit that the guide does contain kernels of truth. “Some of the suggestions in the e-book can reduce your home power consumption. For example, checking for air leaks, have better home insulation, servicing your air-conditioning unit or heate etc,”wrote one. But is it essentially amateurish and misleading, they say. “The whole “document” is 57 pages long and looks like something a kid in high school put together. The final “generator” is basically a magnet that is 2″ high sitting on a turntable that is 4″ high! They claim that its output is 24.5 Watts! That is 1/100th of what my house uses when the AC is on. It wouldn’t put out enough power to light up a standard light bulb,“ wrote another angry blogger. Fraudulent

Alternative energy expert Sterling D. Allan founder of The New Energy Congress has examined Magniwork’s claims. “Most of the 50+ page manual contains energy conservation tips that are based on well-established principles,” he said. But he points out that plans for the device are freely available elsewhere, they are based on other people’s work and he claims to have tried to contact people offering testimonials, without success. “The wording on their site still gives the reader the idea that the plans will result in a working free energy device but that is not the case. Such representation is fraud,” he concluded.

Although highly implausible, the idea of somehow harvesting magnetic power has intrigued scientists for over a century. It was first suggested by pioneering physicist Nicola Tesla in the nineteenth century. Australian company Lutec is still trying to perfect such a device. And U.S based based Magnetic Power Inc, headed by Mark Goldes, has claimed to be on the verge of launching a ‘Magnetic Power Module’ for at least six years. There is no suggestion that either Lutec or MPI are part of the scam.
