Cow Statue Found in Six Meters Depth

Heritage Preservation Hall (BPCB) Yogyakarta find a statue of Nandi or calf in Complex Kedulan. The findings on Friday (19/06/2015) and it is located in one of the ancillary temples (companion), which is six meters below ground level. Archaeologists from Yogyakarta techno BPCB Widiyanto Erwa said, the new findings are the result of technical studies done since 27 May, assisted by dozens of local people.
"Just last Friday found the statue. Weeks later we have secured," he said when met at the complex Kedulan, Tuesday (06/23/2015). Excavation to get the Nandi statue is still being done, because new successfully secured her alone. Meanwhile, the head is still in the ground.
In addition to securing the Nandi statue, some workers also do some digging to two points ancillary temples are also still in the ground. Having successfully secured overall, next will also be coordinated in advance with the excavation team, to determine next steps.
"There should be a statue of Nandi is raised to the top. It is important we have secured first, then coordinated with the team in the office, to the next how," he said. Kedulan, which is located in the hamlet Kedulan, Village Tirtomartani, Kalasan, Sleman, Yogyakarta, is a Hindu temple.
Nandi statue which had been found a few days ago that a vehicle or a vehicle of Lord Shiva. "It was a cow Nandi, the vehicle of Lord Shiva. Head nandi still unaccounted for, the current continues to be explored," said the Head of Development and Utilization Protection, BPCB Yogyakarta Revelation Astuti.
He continued, Kedulan found already since 1993 ago. However, restoration is still going on, because there are some points of land which has not been released.
Hindu temples were submerged soil as deep as six meters, as affected by the eruption of Merapi. This temple has a main temple is located in the central part. Then, there are also three ancillary temples of three units, which were on his side. "Ancillary temples that are still latent will later be revealed," he said.

Potatoes Could Be Battery Lasting in 3 Years

The sophistication of smart devices has not been matched by the durability of the battery. That is why, gadget makers were competing to make their devices long lasting battery. Well, the latest findings from researchers at Virginia Tech University could be the solution. They created a breakthrough by using bio energy from natural sugars materials, rather than chemicals such as Lithium batteries are common in gadgets.

Batteries with this natural sugar energy source claimed the researchers are ideal for use on mobile phones. In contrast to other energies such as bio Hydrogen and Methanol, sugar material arguably safer because it is non-explosive or explosive and fire. "It is logical when we try to 'harvest' natural energy sources with environmentally friendly way, for use in the battery," said YH Percival Professor Yang, spokesman for the researchers, as quoted from the Tech Radar, Thursday (01/23/2014) ,

Interestingly, this natural energy source obtained from starch in the daily diet, one potato. Zhang mentioned starch is broken down gradually using an enzyme cascade. In this way, the electrons with significant quality would appear to generate energy flow. Previously, there had been research on energy sources of sugar. This latest breakthrough, claimed Zhang and his team can produce significantly more energy.

"The method can now store 10 times more energy than the energy sources with the basic materials chemistry," said Zhang. The report, published in the scientific journal Nature Communications wrote, battery-based starch potatoes can be used batteries powering up to three years in a single charge. Wow!
