Vibration energy is created by every person when they move and by almost every single mechanical system. It's possible to harness this energy and convert it to electricity using networks of piezoelectric sensors. Imagine what would happen if these ne

Rupinder commented on Fortified Yogurt made by and for Families

My mum incubates her yogurt by wrapping the container in 1 or 2 thick blankets. She then places that in a cupboard. The next day, there's yogurt - this works every time. My aunts (I have lots of them) also use this method successfully. It has been tested in the UK, where it's cold, and in California and India, where it's hot.

She also warms the milk in the microwave, rather than on the stove. But when she lived in India, the milk was heated over a fire. Nobody used a thermometer - they just knew when to stop. My family has been making their own yogurt for generations this way and no one has ever gotten sick. They've never used any special tools or boiled water - just a heat source, dairy, seed yogurt, container, and blanket. I wonder if the methods used by Indian families to make yogurt for dinner can be of any help. My parents grew up without electricity and modern tech, but they've always made their own yogurt safely.

You can actually yogurtify almost any dairy substitute - I'm guessing you're referring to lactose intolerance, Barbara? My mum makes her own yogurt using bacterial cultures from store-bought yogurt and all kinds of dairy substitutes. If you're working with communities that have access to dairy subs like soy or hemp milk (or others), you can still give them the yogurt experience.
