Dogs Tested to See Whether They’d Defend Owner During Home Invasion

A Yellow Lab, a Pit bull-Lab mix and two others which included a chihuahua are tested in this home invasion experiment and you'd be surprised to see who stepped up to the plate to defend their master...

If a masked intruder broke into your home, would your dog attack or run away? Inside Edition put some dogs to the test to find out whether they would confront the burglar or wimp out. In a recent case, a robber kicked down the door of a home with two dogs, but instead of teaming up to take him down, the canines took off. Inside Edition tested Perry, a 5-year-old yellow Labrador. Her owner, Michelle Kellaher, loves her dog but wonders whether Perry would save her in an emergency.

Turbulent Is Ready to Change the World!

Niagara Falls comes to mind. This 2017 video has been gaining traction again with almost 2.5M views...

After 2 years of engineering and build iterations the team of Turbulent has finished its first 15kW low-head hydropower turbine. This is a scalable technology that can be installed at any kind of water fall, rapid, or water control structure in rivers and canals. By basing this turbine on the principle of a whirlpool, it is both fish friendly and can let debris pass through.

More from Turbulent Hydro in regards to comments from the video:

- We shot this footage during commissioning. When installing a hydropower turbine you first test it for a while at half the nominal flow. That's what you see passing through this turbine. It doesn't look very stable yet, as it needs additional flow for the vortex to stabilize itself (Think about how you get that sucking sound at the last few liters running from your bath tub). Full flow of this turbine is 1.8m3/s with a height difference of 1.7m. That gives 15kW of useful electric power with our efficiency of 50%.

- When we were finished shooting the video, we put back the trash rack (with a spacing between the bars of 10cm as that is the maximum debris size that can pass through) and the mesh that covers the whole basin. No children, dogs, pirates,... can fall in.

-60 homes can be powered in Chile with an average household power demand of 0.25 kW. The average in many European countries is 0.5 kW. The average in American homes could well be a few MW if the comments are to go by :P
