    Metal recovery via chemistry

    I am working on a pilot project to recover gold from circuit boards. I have tried several methods and am interested in giving iodine a try. I know it will dissolve the gold but I cannot find an answer on how to get the iodine solution to drop the gold. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Stereo earpiece

    Hi all. Anyone ever heard of a stereo earpiece? My son is deaf in one ear and when he uses headphones he looses half the sound. Ear buds are the same. only half the sound comes thru. I wonder if there is a full sound earpiece out there some where. IE both channels of sound in one earbud.

    Rogue Waves

    Thought I would post this gem. I have experianced something similar to this in the early 1980's in the caribean. Very scary. This put a spotlight on the power of the sea.

    A math question if I may.

    I am reading " The Honor Harrington series" by author David Weber. It is pretty cool scifi with some intricate plots and massive space battles. Thru these books the refrence used for speed has always eluded me in a "frame of refrence" sence. The ships have "accelerations" refrences in...

    My 10 year old daughter is going to be allowed to listen to her mp3 player in classes this coming school year. They will allow it as a "sonic mask" to help her to not get distracted quite so easily. The requirements for sound are either white noise, music with no vocals, (ie. classical) or...
