This newsletter is published "about six times a year" by Electrostatics Society of America. This issue mentions the Institute for New Energy and New Energy News. Other news is the announcement of ESA's annual meeting scheduled for the University of Georgia, June 29-July 2, 1997. An article by ESA's Secretary/Treasurer, "High-Technology Divining Rod Detects Human Presence," reports on a development of a device which can sense a human presence even through a wall. (We will try to get more information on this device.)
Glenn Schmieg writes about the relatively new, strong, neodymium magnets. (We will get more information on the source for those of you looking for strong magnets). In another note to the editor, Professor Stuart Hoenig (Univ. of Ariz.) notes that bees appear to be sensitive to magnetic fields. Bard Crowley reports that the Discover Magazine is featuring some of the ESA's work on electrostatically-charge pollen as a way of pollinating plants.
