    MU research chief wants 'cold fusion' puzzle solved - Rather than squabbling over the merits of studying cold fusion or jumping to the conclusion that excess heat produced at room temperature is a nuclear reaction, the scientific community needs to back up — all the way to the top of the scientific method. That’s the opinion of Rob Duncan, vice chancellor of research at the University of Missouri. (Columbia Tribune; December 3, 2011)

    Andrea Rossi On Defkalion - Without naming Defkalion, this morning Andrea Ross, inventor of the E-Cat, said: "Warning: somebody is on the road saying they have succeeded in stealing our technology...and are trying to sell a mock up saying it is an upgraded copy of the E-Cat. Nobody has ever copied our technology. Probably this is a stunt to collect money from uncautious buyers." (ECatNews; December 1, 2011)
