No brain for inventing and even less for honesty

Honeywell - Ignoring Hydrology Science and Issued Patents

My Demand to USPTO

It is not that hard to argue at the Court of the Law that Hydrological issues should be examined by Hydrologists.
My demand to USPTO is the same as the first letter sent on Oct. 2006:

1. Hire Examiners with background in Hydrogeology and/or Soil Physics so that they have full comprehension of fluids moving on porosity;
2. Cancel issued patents with scientific flaws. Obsolete patents are cancelled naturally by becoming outdated;
3. Make a public statement about Hydrology negligence hurting all Hydrological community as well as my project that needs experts in Hydrology to protect the content of my issued claims.
4. Compensate for my losses since as an inventor filing patents I was not expecting lay people handling hydrology in the examination process by USPTO.
5. Since USPTO is failing to protect my IP rights my patents should be eligible for time extension of their expiration dates (new demand).
6. Issue a bill requiring Hydrology be handled by Hydrologists preventing laypeople from harming standing common knowledge in the scientific literature (new demand).
7. Disclose the technical and educational background of the Patent Examiners showing their expertise boundaries for judgment (new demand).
8.  Make people accountable for breaking THE LAW regarding my complaints (old demand).

US 6,766,817, p. 23, line. 24) ‘A fluid generally possesses characteristics of internal adhesion-cohesion, which leads to its own strength and attraction to the solid phase of porosity. Capillary action is a theoretical proposal to deal with fluid movement on porous systems, but capillary action is restricted to tubing geometries that are difficult to apply because such geometries do not permit lateral fluid flow. Nevertheless, the geometry of the cylinder is one of the best rounding microstructure to concentrate attraction toward the core of the rounding circle because the cylinder only permits longitudinal flow. In order to provide a required lateral flow in the porosity, a special geometric figure of tube like is disclosed herein. Such a geometric figure is defined herein as simply comprising a "tubarc"--a combination of a tube with an arc.’ 

US pat 6,766,817, July 17, 2004 ‘FIG. 15 illustrates a frontal overview of a hydrodynamic modeling of a main tubarc pattern showing the twisting of the longitudinal slit opening, in accordance with a preferred embodiment of the present invention; ‘

I did not invent a new can opener! My scientific breakthrough (US Pat. 6,766,817) developed new conceptions into Hydrodynamics to update textbooks addressing Unsaturated Hydraulic Conductivity mentioned in only 26 issued patents so far. Today Thermal/Heat Conductivity is mentioned in 90,555 issued patents, Electrical/Electric Conductivity is mentioned in 67,946 issued patents while lay people address fluid moving on porosity as wick/wicking in 30,639 issued patents ignoring Hydrology knowledge. Wick/wicking is in the patent classification system but not on hydrology textbooks. 

Mr. Varga Daly in this patent application below had no single paragraph to address Hydrology.

Improvements in tubes, which increase the heat exchange capacity of tubular heat exchangers using the tubes, are described. These improvements involve the use of one or more external surface enhancements, optionally combined with an internal enhancement and/or differing tube geometries. These improvements apply, for example, to internal condensers, including those in which the tube bundles are oriented vertically, in vapor-liquid contacting apparatuses such as distillation columns.


1. A method of exchanging heat between a first fluid and a second fluid, the method comprising condensing the first fluid on external surfaces of a tube bundle for a condenser comprising tubes, wherein at least a portion of the tubes, in an axially extending section, have internal surfaces having a coating comprising a porous metallic matrix bonded thereon, and have external surfaces comprising circumferentially extending fins, and passing the second fluid through the tubes.

6. A method of purifying a lower boiling component from an impure mixture by distillation, the method comprising: (a) contacting a vapor enriched in the lower boiling component on the external surfaces of a plurality of condenser tubes of an apparatus for vapor-liquid contacting, comprising a vertically oriented column having disposed therein the plurality of condenser tubes extending substantially vertically over a section of the column length, wherein at least a portion of the condenser tubes have external surfaces comprising one or more surface enhancements, and (b) passing a cooling fluid through the condenser tubes.

9. The method of claim 6, wherein the surface enhancements comprise circumferentially extending fins.

[0021] Other embodiments of the invention are directed to tube bundles for a condenser comprising tubes as described above. According to particular embodiments, at least a portion of the tubes, in an axially (e.g., vertically or horizontally, depending on the orientation of the tube bundle) extending section, have internal surfaces having a coating (e.g., a porous metallic matrix as discussed above) bonded thereon, and have external surfaces comprising circumferentially extending fins. These circumferential fins may be characteristic of "low finned" tubes having a height from about 0.76 mm (0.03 inches) to about 3.8 mm (0.15 inches). The circumferentially extending fins may have outer edges that include a plurality notches. According to particular embodiments in the case of notches being present on the circumferentially extending fins, these notches may be aligned axially with respect to adjacent circumferentially extending fins and/or they may be bent at their respective corners outside of the plane of the circumferentially extending fins. According to other embodiments, at least a portion of the tubes have a non-linear central axis and/or a twisted geometry, as discussed above, in the axially extending section, and optionally a plurality of spaced apart points of external contact with adjacent tubes. According to other embodiments, tube bundles may comprise tubes having two or more types of shaped recessions on the external surface, namely smaller discreet shaped recessions and larger, axially extended shaped recessions. The smaller recessions can advantageously provide capillary action to reduce the condensate fluid layer thickness by using the liquid surface tension. Outer edges of these recessions may be aligned in axially extending rows along the external surfaces of the tubes.

[0050] In the same manner as described above with respect to notches on outer edges of fins, notches or recessions having various cross-sectional shapes may be formed directly on the outer surfaces of heat exchanger tubes to provide surface enhancements. Extending these notches in the axial direction on the tube surface results in elongated troughs about the tube periphery. Alternatively, discreet, shaped recessions may be formed on the external tube surface. While the recessions themselves may be small, if desired, in order to provide an effective capillary action that reduces condensate layer thickness, such smaller recessions may be aligned axially to provide an axial or generally axial flow path for condensed liquid. FIG. 5 depicts tubes 2 having shaped recessions 36a, 36b on the external surface, where a portion of these recessions 36a are smaller and are aligned in axially extending rows 22a, for example, with outer edges of the recessions in a row 22a forming a line that extends axially along the external surface of the tube. As discussed above, these smaller, discreet shaped recessions 36a on the tube surface can act as capillaries, such that the surface tension of the condensed liquid is drawn into recessions 36a. In a representative embodiment, in order to provide capillary action, each individual shaped recession will normally have only a small area, typically less than about 5 mm2 (7.8.times.10-3 in2) and often in the range from about 0.1 mm2 (1.6.times.10-4 in2) to about 4 mm2 (6.2.times.10-3 in2). Aligning at least some of the recessions in one or more axially extending rows allows the condensed liquid to effectively drain vertically, for example, in a vertically extending internal tubular condenser. In the embodiment shown in FIG. 5, the axially aligned, smaller, discreet shaped recessions 36a are used as surface enhancements in combination with axially elongated shaped recessions 36b (i.e., with the individual recessions extending over a longer axial portion). Both of these surface enhancements may be used in a common region of the tube that extends over a section of the length of a distillation column where condensation occurs. In the particular embodiment illustrated in FIG. 5, rows 22a of discreet, shaped recessions 36a alternate radially about the tube periphery with rows 22b of larger, axially extending shaped recessions 36b (e.g., in the form of troughs), between which rows the external surface 27 of tube 2 may be smooth. FIG. 5 also depicts internal enhancements on internal surface 25, namely spiral ridges 21, which may be used for improved heat exchange. In FIG. 6, the axially extending, shaped recessions 36b are in the form of troughs having a triangular cross-sectional shape. 

[0051] FIGS. 7A-7D illustrate in more detail some representative cross sections of tubes having shaped recessions 36 on their external surfaces 27. In particular, the shaped recessions 36 in FIGS. 7A and 7D have a curved cross-sectional shape that is semi-circular, while the shaped recessions 36 in FIG. 7B have a triangular cross-sectional shape. Other curved and rectangular (e.g., semi-elliptical and square) cross-sectional shapes are possible. Another embodiment in which tube surfaces are enhanced with shaped recessions 36 is shown in FIG. 7C, where, as in FIG. 7B, the cross-sectional shapes of recessions 36, spaced (e.g., uniformly) about the periphery of the surface of tube 2, are triangles. In the embodiment shown in FIG. 7C, however, these triangles are broad enough such that only small sections or points of the external surface 27 of tube 2 remain (or are not part of the shaped recessions), with these sections being spaced radially about the periphery of tube 2. The axial extension of these sections or points results in axially extending ridges. Such a tube with axially extending, shaped recessions 36b or troughs aligned in axial rows 22b is also illustrated in the front view of FIG. 6. 

[0052] In FIG. 7D, the axially extending ridges, similarly formed between these shaped recessions, have a smooth, curved (e.g., semi-circular) cross-sectional shape of the same or a similar dimension as the curved cross sectional shape forming the shaped recessions. The cross sectional shape of this tube therefore has a generally circular perimeter defined by alternating, concave and convex curves (e.g., semi-circles). The resulting, smooth external surface contrasts with the embodiment shown in FIG. 7A, where the shaped recessions form edges. Therefore, as shown, for example in the embodiment of FIG. 7D, the shaped recessions can provide a fluted profile of a fluted tubeFluted tubes or other tubes having axially extending shaped recessions or discreet, shaped recessions aligned in axially extending rows as depicted, for example, in FIGS. 7A-7D may be characterized as having two outer diameters. Smaller and larger outer diameters may be the distances, respectively, to opposing deepest points of recessions 36 and opposing external surfaces 27, with each of these distances being measured through the center of the cross section of tube 2. Representative tubes having axially extending shaped recessions will have smaller and larger outer diameters in the ranges from about 13 mm (0.5 inches) to about 32 mm (1.25 inches) and from about 19 mm (0.75 inches) to about 38 mm (1.5 inches), respectively. In exemplary embodiments, such a tube will have outer diameters of about 19 mm (0.75 inches) and about 25 mm (1.0 inches) or outer diameters of about 25 mm (1.0 inches) and about 32 mm (1.25 inches). 

[0056] The use of axially or generally extending shaped recessions and/or fins, in this manner, as tube surface enhancements, can reduce condensate film thickness and/or facilitate condensate drainage, thereby improving the heat transfer coefficient of the tube. Such features as surface enhancements for tubes are particularly advantageous in internal tubular condensers (e.g., disposed in distillation columns), where the heat exchange surface area, as well as the total weight of equipment that can be practically installed (e.g., at or near the top of the column or tower) are both limited. The tube surface enhancements discussed above may be used alone or in combination. The tube surface enhancements may also be used in combination with internal enhancements as discussed above, and particularly spiral ridges that may act to further improve heat transfer. Otherwise, these surface enhancements may be combined with a coating, such as a porous metallic matrix used to form an enhanced boiling layer as discussed above, that is bonded onto internal surfaces of the tubes, for example, in at least the same region of the tubes (e.g., extending over a section of the column height) as the surface enhancements. The surface enhancements may also be used in tube bundles in which all or a portion of the tubes have a non-linear central axis (e.g., a helical axis), or otherwise have a twisted tube geometry as discussed above, in at least the same region of the tubes as the surface enhancements. In a representative embodiment, for example, a tube bundle of a condenser, having tubes with a fluted tube profile and an internal enhancement including one or more spiral ridges, is aligned vertically in the upper section of a distillation column. Various other combinations of surface enhancements, optionally with an internal surface coating and/or non-linear or twisted geometries, can be incorporated into tubes to improve their heat transfer coefficient, particularly when the tubes are used in a tube bundle that is oriented vertically and used in a service in which condensate drains vertically from the external surfaces of the tubes (i.e., on the "shell side" of the condenser). 

I would like to suggest Americans to send messages to those emails below pledging them to be honest and stop violating intellectual property rights allowing huge corporations to reinvent issued patents shamefully violating science.

Mr. Donald Trump
President of the United States of America
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500


Dear Mr. Trump.

Bill Clinton delivered his first speech for reelection at my PhD commencement on May 10, 1996 at the Penn State University. Nevertheless, I believe that you could do much more than his wife Hillary Clinton, making America great again for the birth of a NEW SCIENCE associated to a breakthrough I bumped during my high education in the US.

I happen to be just a Brazilian farm boy dreaming for science and pursuing a higher education in the US as I got PhD in Soil Science. By chance, the President of the US attended my graduation saying in his speech that we were privileged citizens for receiving the highest education that America could provide to their citizens. He said also that many of us would be developing new technologies down the line never imagined before. My challenge was just to probe how far I could get through cracking down subtle boundaries we face on crossroads.

Mixed with my belongings when I went back home there was a special cord becoming the keystone of a scientific discovery robust enough to create a new science. I called it HYDROTECHNOLOGY – the science of Hydrogeology on artificial porosity so critical to fluidic devices as well as mass flow dynamics upgrading molecular connectivity on water and energy cycle principles. I started employing this cord for self-watering on my wife’s potted African Violets realizing that plastic cords fail as wicks and it could be an advanced porosity interface to connect Saturated and Unsaturated Hydraulic Zones with modelling of pores geometry having higher anisotropic flow on longitudinal direction by supplying/draining fluid reversibly on demand in response to a hydraulic gradient. Molecular connectivity on mass flow dynamics may hinder advanced properties not yet addressed by the scientific community as the exploratory analysis provides clear footprints of such absent insights.

Pursuing intellectual property rights, fist I filed a patent in Brazil. Later I realized that the country I got my scientific background, the US, would be better suitable for this technological advancement. I joined two American patent attorneys to exploit this breakthrough opening a company and filing patents at USPTO. My partners got surprised on how easily my patents were approved. Today I know that the classical hydrological description was not that common in the patenting system so far. Underlying lacking technicalities was the tip of a huge gap combining skewed manipulation perpetrated by USPTO as well as the scientific opportunity to expand boundaries of knowledge on Hydrology of porosity systems dealing with artificial ones. Unhappily, my issued patents were massively violated, sometimes by flaws, forcing my partners to quit the project saying that in the US small parties had no chance to stand huge bully corporations and top institutions failing on their roles. They said that even a ‘SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY’ was not strong enough to stand in a degrading country continuously and shamefully violating science. Indeed it would be a waste suing flawed patents that ignore common knowledge and issued patents, easily depicting a clear conspiracy by a blatant flawed reinvention plot. This situation is far worse than stealing intellectual property, as they had no comprehension on the plundering subject.

Is it possible to claim intellectual property rights when the inventors have no technical understanding in the issue?’ Can you invent something that you have no idea what it is and the use it can have? Oh dear, I thought I was in the summit . . .

It did not require deep acumen to notice that the American culture was degrading more and more. Bill Clinton had an affair known as the Lewinsky scandal in the White House office. Lewinsky stated that between November 1995 and March 1997, she had nine sexual encounters with then-President Bill Clinton that, according to her testimony, involved fellatio and other sexual acts in the Oval Office.  In addition, my institution where I got my PhD was hosting a serial child molester Jerry Sandusky arrested and charged with 52 counts of sexual abuse of young boys over a 15-year period from 1994 to 2009. Sandusky served as an assistant coach mostly at Pennsylvania State University under Joe Paterno. According to details in the report, Spanier, Paterno, Curley, and Schultz never restricted Sandusky's access to Penn State facilities.

The American situation is persistently degrading by economic meltdown, obesity, and now intellectual property affairs as USPTO is running a sort of conspiracy on reinvention in association with huge corporations, top institutions, and Law firms. My issued patents pursuing a scientific breakthrough are not only being violated, they have been reinvented also many times even by flawed patents from lay people that have no background to understand and handle an old and classic science called HYDROLOGY so plenty on libraries.

Mr. Trump, it is difficult to put it in simple words explaining this bizarre situation in a country you are becoming the new leader. It is like losing a competition to a party that is not even supposed to compete or be judged by people that have no idea what they are judging. They are so deprived on their misdeeds that it becomes useless explaining to them because they have no intellectual resources for such comprehension.

I indeed hope that you are able to make America great again pursuing the balance of human existence.

Just imagine a scientist from Cornell University Dr. Abraham Duncan Stroock that got his PhD at Harvard asking me to read his scientific publications because he could not understand the language of his issued patent violating mine. I told him that if he could not understand it, even less the Lawyer who wrote it, and the Patent Examiner who issued it. Therefore, I posted around 120 thousand emails of all Cornell University at my blog demanding them respect to science and the Law.

‘...  If you have a point to make about my treatment of hydrological concepts, I ask that you take the time to explain your specific points of disagreement.  I note that my work is better represented in my publications (available at​) than in patentsas the lawyers have been translated the latter into legalese that I do not understand.’

This is funny! I recall seeing no single Law student attending the discipline of Hydrogeology with Prof. Richard Parizek in a class of 120 students in the fall of 1992 at the Penn State University. I just imagine Albert Einstein or Antoine Lavoisier unable to read their patents about their scientific achievement if they had written any. That is so awkward. They are so naïve! What is the technical background of the Patent Examiners? Why multiple patent filings if it is impossible to invent the same thing more than once? If we can unlock nature secrets, grabbing the underlying functioning of a deceitful patent system is not that so challenging . . . Dishonest Lawyers can step over the boundaries, but Nature demands simple honesty. This is not a winning or losing situation as Nature rewards only those ones loyal to the principles.

The situation in the patenting system is degrading so shamefully more and more that it is hard to find words to describe it. I posted a blog that a flawed patent was even citing mine patent when I provided Hydrological background helping lay people to have a better comprehension on hydrological issues. You can be sure that this skewed performance is affecting most of the top institutions in the US as they have not realized yet the power of honesty on America endeavors.

What is the point of ignoring common knowledge and issued patents? Why?
This is not a surprise from a country that the President was doing sex in his office and the University President I got my PhD let young disadvantaged boys be raped in the locker rooms. Raping of science and the Law in the Patent Office is just a follow-up in a growing mess that you might face taking care of it down the line in order to make America greater again!

It does not make sense unless they are aliens from another dimension bearing a different Logical system in their minds unlike from commonplace on earth! They cannot be stupid because they must have had some educational background that missed principles of simple honesty and fairness.

Mr. Trump, my scientific breakthrough (US Pat. 6,766,817) cancels around 50 thousand issued patents and open room for another 200 thousand patents if the Patent Office were respecting common knowledge on the scientific literature and issued patents. There is a huge gap associated to the application of Hydrogeology to fluidic devices as well as an ongoing conspiracy on reinvention perpetrated by US Government in collusion with wealthy parties raping science shamefully in the core. For sure, you can play offense and defense to keep the weaponry industry profitable pretending National Security scapegoat. However, when this naïve game destroy a country like Syria, as a reward for the misdeeds, the survivors become your neighbors bearing all the aggravations in their hearts. Despoiling science is like cursing your mother that gave you the principles of your own existence. I meant Mother Nature in case you have enough brain to read in between the lines.


How important is HYDROTECHNOLOGY?

The technical importance of Hydrotechnology can be assessed by a simple exploratory analysis on conductivity parameters like: Thermal, Electric, and Hydraulic:
USPTO search on Dec 21, 2016:

Thermal/Heat Conductivity                                                                              114.778 issued patents
Electrical/Electric Conductivity                                                                         89.326 issued patents
Hydraulic Conductivity                                                                                          852 issued patents
Unsaturated Hydraulic Conductivity                                                                        30 issued patents
Wick/wicking                                                                                                    37.468 issued patents

Unsaturated Hydraulic Conductivity is mentioned in only 30 issued patents as it has been ignored by USPTO inventors revealing a wide gap for a new science - Hydrotechnology. A large number of issued patents 37,468 that mention the term ‘wick/wicking’ that portrays a huge technical-scientific breach since lay people try to develop fluidic devices ignoring specialized scientific literature on Hydrology. The word ‘wick/wicking’ is not found in the scientific books of Hydrology, Hydrogeology, or Soil Physics just because the complexity goes far beyond the functioning of oil lamps moving fluid upward to the flame. Wick/wicking is in the patent classification system but not on hydrology textbooks.

Henry Darcy proposed Darcy’s Law in 1856 about Hydraulic Conductivity and afterwards in 1907 Edgard Buckingham proposed a change in the equation to Unsaturated Hydraulic Flow (Soil Physics, Jury et al., 1991, John Wiley). It has been observed that many inventors employing the terminology ‘wick/wicking’ neither understand the functioning of oil lamps nor Hydrogeology, concerning the functioning of Hydraulic Zones. They come up with scientific flaws as wicks only have negative hydraulic flow (unsaturated). Wick is a porous flexible structure that moves fuel to the flame by Unsaturated Hydraulic Flow and it needs to resist to high temperatures. It is a basic Etymological mistake to call anything as a wick that fails as a wick on oil lamps. Also, wicks could not be used as a draining porosity as it never worked in the bottom of oil lamps draining fluids by Saturated Flow. The hydrological functioning is so different as the fuel rises upward through wick porosity to the flame by Unsaturated Flow leaving the system as gases after combustion. In the self-watering flowerpots water leaves continuously the soil-water-plant system by evapotranspiration. In the African Violets prototypes, the loss rate is about 1 ml/h, and the maximum gauged transmittance upward in the porosity interface was 2.18 mm/s.

As a scientist, by observing this sort of malfunctioning of society, I developed this insight that corruption bears dynamic principles like pregnancy as it grows and grows until the due date. Corruption keeps increasing and expanding until it reaches a threshold getting the bearing limits like is happening nowadays in Brazil. Safety on nightclubs like Boate Kiss was ignored making it one day a nightmare trap dungeon that decimated in few minutes 242 mostly college students. Safety on contention dam holding mining rejection was neglected by Samarco unleashing a slurry that is never mud, deeply frightening thousands of Brazilians striving in the Doce River basin, jeopardizing their blessed natural resource. Soil Genesis says that mud take millions of years weathering from rocks. That slurry is a thing that we do not understand yet. Public mismanagement is spread around the world showing that our democracy is tainted, and most of our politicians are as corrupt as US government officials. Tainted meat backfires faster than a flawed patenting system. Brazil exports around 14b dollars by the meat industry that demands commitment to the safety standards so customers know what they are eating. The sooner you take care of the shameful violation of science on intellectual property affairs the easier to handle the outcome afterwards, since science is the functioning of nature and cannot be deceived for our own sake.

My breakthrough reveals a huge gap for a new science that will take off now on my lifetime or whenever this human affair issue is emended. So, if you intend to make the US a great country again you may consider getting rid of those rotting apples in your basket.

My issued patent (US Pat. 6,766,817) was violated again on December 22, 2016 by Johnson Controls Technology Company with a lousy patent (9,525,177 Electrical power storage devices). Erica Liabo-VanDerPol from Boardman & Clark LLP is the Patent Lawyer prosecuting this shameful collusion with USPTO. She got B.A. in Computer Science and B.S. in Political Science, showing no expertise whatsoever in this issue called Hydrology she is messing with.

This is not supposed to happen in a developed country. I took 22 years studying to reach PhD in Soil Science degree bearing four diplomas in Agricultural Sciences. I had a sort of scientific breakthrough carrying out more than 3,000 trials to grab new conceptions of Hydrodynamics in a 20 years challenging project. Now, lay people that never peeked at a Hydrology textbook in their entire life are carelessly desecrating my IP rights. Well, as a scientist I must say that I know my own species behavior and this is not such a big surprise at all, on a broad range of comprehension I nurture on human affairs. I was expecting that my scientific curiosity would reward my income developing my project. This conspiracy was not planned because they do not have enough brain resources to contrive it, as it is just a reckless management of human affairs.

Tainted meat on the table stinks faster than rotting apples in your basket! Oh my goodness!

The reasoning says that we are the prevailing species over the landscape just because we ate and annihilated the competition during our evolution. Probably we did not originate from monkeys, because they were surviving cousins capable of fleeing humans, hiding in the top of trees, while we were on the ground enhancing hunting weapons. The leading country in the world with nukes misses power to care for their bellies, to honor plenty of knowledge on their libraries, or even less to abide to their own standing LAWS and doubtful moral grounds. Perhaps, this is the core recipe of the American exceptionalism backfiring.

Honesty is the unique key salvation to human existence!

As a farm boy, I see no difference passing away famous and wealthy or just poor and unknown in the end of my life cycle that I have no hurry to get through. My luggage to afterlife is the same standard as any wayfarer. Also, I promise no complaining back about the crowd size of my coming funeral. The truth is that reality is too cruel to gain warm reception for those ones daring to be honest!

p.s. Is it insane standing up to protect Hydrology Science?

What is the chance that Hydrology will be erased from the libraries?

Keep in mind that I have a Hydrology project that I would love to carry on during my lifetime in case you are nuts to make America great again. These shameful violations proves that I created something tenable for society, but human affairs are desperately missing honesty on academic, government, and corporation issues. A new science is being born from a technical and scientific gap, as well as lack of moral support and fairness from a broad range of people pretending they know what they are doing. ‘Water falls from the sky, drains over the landscape toward the ocean in a cycle that cannot be changed as shrewd people know that the principles stands rooted by a sturdy reasoning.’

The USPTO Conspiracy is forcing inventors to get rewards from their inventions after spending mammoth amount of money on lawsuits protecting from massive shameful violations that ignores common knowledge and the LAW.

Mr. Trump, inventors are intelligent people using their creativity to improve society functioning and deserve more dignity and respect!

Kind regards,

p.s. 1. As a scientist, I am aware that curiosity drives human affairs, but honesty indeed is the main component to keep it in the right track. What can I know and how do I know that I know it? (Epistemology) What really exist in the universe? (Metaphysics) What is the best way to set up my mind to make it as clear as possible? (Logics).

p.s. 2. Tubarc (tube + arc) was a proposition to fluid dynamics on porosity combining nature functioning to human capacity to handle material at tiny dimensions. Initially in 2001, I was curious if my proposed modelling was tenable and if I would be able to see it tested in my life time. What hurts the most a scientist certainly is when Nature does not endorse a finding. These shameful violations below is a sort of a gift to let me rest in peace down the line believing that, besides a blatant dishonesty around, I was never ignoring the principles as science is judged strictly by Nature functioning. 



USPTO assigns lay examiners to judge issues they have no understanding. Arlen Soderquist a Patent Examiner claiming to be a Chemist scientist from Utah is confident that he can examine Hydrology even having no background about this old classical science. I am curious on how much Hydrology the Department of Chemistry of University of Utah provides to their students. This is the way Dr. Soderquist sees Hydrology; very funny and so different from the scientific literature and basic textbooks of Hydrology so plenty on libraries. He does not know that gravity exists affecting the Hydraulic Gradient Potential. The Saturated Zone is the bottom (fluid fuel) and the Unsaturated Zone is on the top as the fluid moves upward to the flame (wick). My deceased father a coffee farmer with two years of schooling knew about it as we used many oil lamps. He knew that the flame was on the top and the fuel deposit was in the bottom, and that the fuel would move upward as we had to refill it once in a while!


On Sep. 16, 2007 I sent a letter to Ecolab, Inc. advising them that their patent application 20070212281 (Sep. 13, 2007) was violating mine US 6,766,817 (Jul. 25, 2001), and that it had a scientific flaw failing to deliver fluid. I got no answer, but I also sent a letter to USPTO notifying about this blatant flaw and violations. In the Fig. 1 water only drips if the porous device crosses the water table reference downward from the Unsaturated to the Saturated Hydraulic Zone. I got a reply from a USPTO Lawyer saying that there was a provision Law allowing the size of the drawings be different from the real final products. I replied saying that my technical schooling at High School taught that parallel lines never meet each other at any scale employed. My initial assumption was that the background of USPTO patent examiners could be lower than High School standards. My surprise was that this patent application was issued afterwards on Oct. 23, 2007 (US 7,285,255). So, to make it appalling, it was filed again on Jan. 24, 2008 (US 20080019865) and issued again on Mar. 2, 2010 (US 7,670,551).

Why would somebody want to file patents claiming an invention that is flawedfails, and was already precisely invented grounded by advanced scientific background?

I was expecting that the academic environment would be different as faculties usually are PhD and highly committed to honor, respect, ethics, always complying with the Law. Universities have libraries and access to common knowledge preached on text books and classrooms. But, Dr. Amir Faghri and Dr. Zhen Guo working at the former Fuel Cell Center at the University of Connecticut believed that Hydrology from their Library could be ignored as well as my patent rights at USPTO when issuing US 7,625,649 ‘Vapor feed fuel cells with a passive thermal-fluids management system’. It was sent many letters requesting IDS of US 6,766,817 to many faculties and IP management team at Univ. of Connecticut. Nobody there felt any urge to respect neither Classical Hydrology nor the Law on already issued patents on the subject. Looking at the drawings it looks like it was a straight lousy copycat by a PhD faculty showing arrogance and how stupid he can be by ignoring a ‘scientific breakthrough’. I have no idea why faculties want to work with fluid ignoring an old and classic science Hydrology. Dr. Zhen Guo got his PhD at Florida International University in Mechanical Engineering working with fuel cells filing a patent (20060046123) with his advisor Dr. Yiding Cao showing that they had no idea about fluid dynamics between Hydraulic Zones. At least they abandoned such flawed patent application

Why would any scientist work with microfluid Ignoring Hydrology textbooks? Dr. Vera Gorfinkel never studied Hydrology in her full life and had no single Hydrology reference to show that she did her homework on background requirements. Education: Ph.D. in Physics & Mathematics from A.F.Ioffe Physical-Technical Institute St. Petersburg, Russia, 1980, M.S. (with honors) in Semiconductor Physics, Saratov State University, Russia, 1973. (8,231,844) Method and device for manipulating liquids in microfluidic systems. Dr. Gorfinkel invented Tubarc again neither knowing Hydrology with any citation nor US 6,766,817.

Carnegie Mellon University ignores Advanced Hydrology, the Law, Ethics, and Honesty. Complex Engineering on hydrodynamics is confused on geometries between squares and circlesDr. Fedder, PhD, is proposing a squared geometry in order to control fluid dynamics employing ‘Capillary Action’, which comes from the cylindrical structure conception – capillary’. How much brain power is required to realize that ‘capillary action’ is a cylindrical geometric conception to capture unsaturated hydraulic flow when the solid surface of porosity pulls fluids upward against gravity having a suction or negative hydraulic flow? Frankly speaking can any capillary be squared? It seems that Nature opted for rounded geometries since the beginning making the sun, earth, cells, veins, trunks, etc, all rounded and rounded. Dr. Fedder empty skull is also rounded!

Now Carnegie Mellow is just raping science and shamefully cheating on Academic Affairs in collusion with USPTO shameful reinvention policy. Dr. Gary K. Fedder the Director of the Institute for Complex Engineered Systems (ICES) got B.S. and M.S. from MIT in 1982 and 1984, obtaining in 1994 PhD at the University of California at Berkeley. I had to carry out more than 3,000 experiments till 2001 when I was ready to file my American patent which was then published in 2003, and issued on 2004. Dr. Fedder filed his lazy patent in 2006 and requested Nonpublication option to keep it a secret till 2013 (8,501,117) waiting 7 years expecting my project to vanish.

University of California, Princeton University, and many others are trying to address fluidic devices by ignoring Hydrology Science as well as issued patents like US 6,766,817.

My recent conclusion is that lay people behind wick/wicking neither understand HYDROLOGY nor the functioning of oil lamps!


USPTO Conspiracy VI

To be honest I have no idea why this flawed patent (US 9,308,490) is citing mine (US pat 6,766,817) since I provided the core Hydrological background for lay people to improve their comprehension on this issue of hydrodynamics regarding fluid movement on porosity systems. It seems that lay people behind wick/wicking neither understand Hydrology nor the functioning of oil lamps. Wicks connect the fuel in the liquid compartment to the flame on the top moving the fluid upward as Unsaturated Hydraulic Flow. Wicks can never be set in the bottom of an oil lamp for drainage as it becomes Saturate Flow. I am curious if my issued patent was read by any of them, inventors, patent attorneys, and examiners; or even if any of them has any hydrological background.

US pat 6,766,817  (BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION - 3rd paragraph) - A fluid that possesses a positive pressure can be generally defined in the field of hydrology as saturated fluid. Likewise, a fluid that has a negative pressure (i.e., or suction) can be generally defined as an unsaturated fluid. Fluid matric potential can be negative or positive. For example, water standing freely at an open lake, can be said to stand under a gravity pull. The top surface of the liquid of such water accounts for zero pressure known as the water table or hydraulic head. Below the water table, the water matric potential (pressure) is generally positive because the weight of the water increases according to parameters of force per unit of area. When water rises through a capillary tube or any other porosity, the water matric potential (e.g., conventionally negative pressure or suction) is negative because the solid phase attracts the water upward relieving part of its gravitational pull to the bearing weight. The suction power comes from the amount of attraction in the solid phase per unit of volume in the porosity.

What is the point of ignoring common knowledge and issued patents? 

It does not make sense unless they are aliens from another dimension bearing a different Logical system in their minds different from commonplace on earth! They cannot be stupid because they must have had some educational background that missed principles of simple honesty and fairness.
