Eighth Letter to Mr. Obama on December 1, 2009

Mr. Barack Obama

President of the United States of America

The White House

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW

Washington, DC 20500

Phone: 202-456-1414


Dear Mr. Obama,

Breaking the Law, Breaching of Ethics and Violation of Science

Mr. President, you are a Lawyer from Harvard and this is the eighth letter I am sending you regarding this issue.

Dr. Michael J. Hogan is the President of University of Connecticut getting his PhD in History from University of Iowa. His institution is sponsoring people who break the Law, breach Ethics and violate Science blatantly. I do not know why since the Law is so clear and Hydrology is one of the oldest sciences in man History. How hard is it to understand that we cannot reinvent what is already invented and common knowledge on text books should be honored and respected? Where is the academic integrity and honesty by a former Dean?

I got my PhD in Soil Science at the Pennsylvania State University and by chance Bill Clinton was there on my commencement on May 10, 1996 just releasing his first speech from reelection. He said something that is still stuck to my neurons that we should be proud of receiving the highest education that the United States of America could offer their citizens.

Bill Clinton said that we were going to expand the technological frontiers far beyond that present situation providing new jobs on new fields still to be created. He missed about ongoing bias by USPTO neglecting Hydrology and government institutions breaking the Law, breaching Ethics and violating Science shamefully by people who were supposed to provide a sound model for education and leadership stewarding the principles of fairness.

The United States is widely known for having a strong Law System sending young people not much aware of their crimes to jail. Perhaps this is time to start locking grownups Scientists and Lawyers for breaking the Law.

Science deals with the functioning of nature and honesty is critical since gravity affects us all equally allowing no pretending. It seems that some scientists are crossing the border like those ones taking place on Global Warming by tainted data on such critical issue misleading public opinion.

I bumped to a sort of ‘scientific discovery dealing with Classical Hydrology being neglected near a century by the patenting system on fluidic devices since the USPTO database is showing that inventors, attorneys, and even examiners are just lay people not trained in Hydrology Science simply ignoring long standing conceptions of fluids moving on porosity like addressing simply UNSATURATED HYDRAULIC CONDUCTIVITY.

Easily I figured out that Hydrology in the patenting system is handled by laypeople tracking down conductivity analyses. Today around 71,672 patents mention Heat/Thermal Conductivity, about 52,114 on Electric/Electrical Conductivity, and only 496 on Hydraulic Conductivity. Wick/wicking which is not in the Hydrology scientific terminology is mentioned in around 24,891 issued patents. The phenomenon of wick/wicking is called Unsaturated Hydraulic conductivity and is mentioned today in just 20 issued patents.

My first patent US 6,766,817 was easily issued on Jul 25, 2004 but afterwards it was ignored massively showing that USPTO has no Hydrologists in the examination process. My partners Patent Attorneys suggested me to request IDS (Information Disclosure Statement) so that the examiners would be required to consider my new conceptions in Hydrodynamics bearing a strong scientific background from my PhD Hydrology books.

Lawfully I sent already around 5,000 letters to Inventors, Attorney, Examiners requesting Information Disclosure Statements regarding my ‘scientific discovery’ in Hydrology. Sadly many of them are assuming that any invention can be reinvented, common knowledge on textbooks can be ignored, and the rules of the Law can be distorted.

My ‘scientific discovery’ in Hydrology is likely a breakthrough for developing new conceptions associated to micro and macrogeometry of porosity for unsaturated flow but also reveals a long standing bias from laypeople in the patenting system ignoring Classic Hydrology.

Today USPTO issued US 7,625,649Vapor feed fuel cells with a passive thermal-fluids management system’ by Faghri; Amir (Mansfield, CT), Guo; Zhen (Storrs Mansfield, CT) assigned to University of Connecticut (Farmington, CT)

It seems that the inventor Dr. Amir Faghri is just a Mechanical Engineer PhD trying to work with fluid management totally ignoring ancient and classical Hydrogeology on fluids moving on porosity and even the content of my issue patent US 6,766,817. As a former Dean of School of Engineering he is supposed to be aware on academic principles, professional ethics as well as Patent Laws (§ 1.56 Duty to disclose information material to patentability) regarding the obligation of disclosing information on patentability sent on many communications to inventors and attorneys on 8/8/2007, 4/17/2008, and 5/26/2008.

Why not refer my patent in the list as lawfully requested so the Examiner could protect my issued claims accordingly honoring Patent Laws?

They even do not know that liquid move by a Hydraulic Gradient and the flow is addressed by Saturated or Unsaturated Hydraulic Conductivity. What about fluid matric potential, water table, pores connectivity, anisotropic flow, saturated and unsaturated hydraulic zone, etc.? They are just laypeople trying to make inroads in a field they have no expertise taking advantage of USPTO negligence toward Hydrology science.

From this continuous raping of Hydrology I believe even more that my ‘scientific discovery’ (above) as a breakthrough making near 50 thousand patents obsolete for ignoring Hydrology and opening rooms for another new 200 thousand patents combining Hydrology and Energy Cycle on mass transfer.

I learned deeply during my PhD in the US that when people break the Law they get the consequences. So, I have already included one more demand to the President of the United States of America pursuing the maximum rigor of the Law Enforcement. Since 2006 in written communication I have been demanding USPTO to stop a massive infringement on my issued patent rights suggesting the following below

Mr. President I suggest USPTO the following:

  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. Make people accountable for breaking the Law regarding my complaints (new demand).

I believe that it does not require a strong intellectual acumen to notice that Hydrology is supposed to be handled by Hydrologists, as well as Laws are handled by Lawyers, Chemistry by Chemists, History by Historians, and so on.

By the way, Hydrology is not a new science. Henry Darcy proposed a Law about Saturated Flow in 1856 to address Hydraulic Conductivity on porosity. Edgard Buckingham proposed an updating equation to measure Unsaturated Hydraulic Flow in 1907 and my issued patent US 6,766,817 is the first one to measure it on artificial porosity near a century later deploying classical hydrogeology to the patenting system.

By the way, wick/wicking is the kite of aerodynamics marring today 24,891 issued patents by skirting common knowledge in classical Hydrology showing how long a Classical Science can be ignored.

There is plenty of coherence to send scientists to jail and also to create a new science I called ‘Hydrotechnology’ to address this huge technological and scientific gap bringing Hydrogeology principles to artificial porosity exploring molecular connectivity on mass flow dynamics.

The Commissioner of Patents is suggesting that I challenge at the Court of Law violations of my patents that I disagree. I told him that it may be more appropriate to challenge USPTO on Dereliction of Duty and Breaching of Ethics. Many violating patents have scientific flaws from lay people that do not have the appropriate expertise to address the subject and is taking advantage of USPTO negligence on Hydrological Examination allowing non Hydrologists break Ethics on a field they are not known in the art – HYDROLOGY. When filing patents at USPTO I was expecting Hydrology be examined by Hydrologists and my patent rights be respected accordingly.

Honesty and commonality are the best analytical tools to make inroads to nature secrets. Some lay inventors propelled by ignorance think that flying a kite can lead them toward airplanes by skirting aerodynamics. Some scientists even think that they can create a Global Warming with tainted data hiding their analytical tools ignoring the endorsement of nature.

Nature blesses you and the United States of America.

Kind regards,
