Wed, 26 Oct 2016 06:52:04 -0500Should we be using different bearings for our high-speed rotor blades which are used on the most common drone types like the Quadcopter designs? I believe so, as these drones need to be very reliable, long range, and will have important cargo onboard as part of their important missions whether on the battlefield, commercial application or delivering you a very important pizza or Amazon package.
Tue, 27 Sep 2016 08:13:06 -0500The addition of cameras to drones may have just changed the way many industries run forever. They can be used to check areas that were previously impossible to see such as piping when checking safety and security, they can be used to keep control of policing situations such as riots and protests and they are even used in movies.
Tue, 27 Sep 2016 08:12:34 -0500With the commercial drone industry booming and currently growing by nearly 20% each year, there are now an unprecedented amount of drone kits that are available to you depending on your need. Thanks to heavy levels of research and development, drones can now be purchased for an affordable price whilst still maintaining a high quality design and a number of useful features.
Fri, 02 Sep 2016 13:30:04 -0500There is a growing recognition among educators that the adolescent years are a crucial age for developing a sense of self. The middle schools of the future direct this self outwards so that it can find its place in our global society.
Thu, 25 Aug 2016 06:46:24 -0500There is a serious problem being caused by a global epidemic involving the transmission of dysfunctional information from the mass production of information and communication devices. The ancient Greek 'Science for ethical ends' has been updated in order to explain the research methodology needed to obtain the antidote, and with it a rigorous human survival blueprint.
Thu, 11 Aug 2016 12:14:48 -0500A chronic problem on First Nations (North American native) reserves is the quality of housing. This particularly critical in northern communities, due to a variety of factors. Tarpaulin structures, or fabric buildings, may be the answer to a significant part of the solution.
Mon, 08 Aug 2016 08:15:49 -0500Plenty of people in all stages of their lives are fascinated by video games. James P. Gee (2003) and Howard Gardner (1983) value the interplay between learning and skills present in everyday life (culture) of people. We investigate Gee's principles of learning and Gardner's multiple intelligences in relation to good video games.
Wed, 03 Aug 2016 07:34:02 -0500We seem to have a problem in the United States, namely Populist Politicians that lean towards socialism on the political spectrum who are willing to promise the American People anything they want - to buy their votes with other people's tax dollars. Perhaps this is why our Founding Fathers set up a Republic rather than a pure democracy - but what happens in the future when voting is instantaneous and the "I want it now" crowd votes for their whims, wishes and desires in real-time? Me-Me-Me-Now-Now-Now - Let's talk because this question came up at our think tank the other day when discussing how to implement a smartphone instant voting app for US elections.
Mon, 01 Aug 2016 14:45:44 -0500Good video games are relevant to young people's success in school and society in the new digital age we are living. Video games are digital tools for learning inside and outside of school in areas that we value. Games that challenge players to solve problems give them a rich learning opportunity.
Fri, 15 Jul 2016 15:48:16 -0500India stands second in the world in cement production. The cement industry in India then naturally becomes a major aspect of the Indian economy, as it employs over a million people. The Indian cement industry drew massive investments from within India and also from other countries, after 1982 when it was deregulated.
Wed, 08 Jun 2016 06:32:43 -0500It grates on my nerves every time I hear this mentioned. What kind of inferior mind could conceive of such a thing and how stupid are those who believe it? What is a big bang in space and who would have organised it?
Fri, 06 May 2016 07:41:44 -0500Consequent to the e-learning concepts and programmes gaining popularity with each passing day, the demand for the services to convert Flash Animation to HTML5 has also risen to new heights. To a poser on this conversion over the Google, plethora of suggestions and answers appear. It is always wise to seek the solutions provided by a professional IT company that is engaged in developing numerous animation programmes including e-learning processes.
Mon, 04 Apr 2016 06:43:25 -0500American epidemiologists cannot halt the growth and development of a 3D epidemic bringing about serious dysfunctional social activities through the mass manufacture of information and communication devices. This dysfunctional aspect of modern science can be classified as innately carcinogenic and requires a review of science itself. However, ancient Greek science anticipated the development of such a crucial human survival situation. International quantum biology scientists and artists have joined together to bring about a rebirth of this lost science, declaring it to be an integral aspect of the 21st Century Renaissance. Sigmund Freud's psychoanalysis research was an attempt to rebalance science so that sexual reality could be incorporated into inorganic chemistry in order to prevent organic life science being forced back into an inanimate state. His controversial research can now be used to help program a computer in order to generate a precise human survival blueprint.
Wed, 03 Feb 2016 06:40:03 -0600Epidemiologists responsible for community health and well being have located a 3D virus that is now a global epidemic. They have declared that there is no known antidote to it. They can only provide band aid medical care to ease the damage that the virus is causing throughout the world. The corporate profit motive is responsible for an explosion of communication and information devices, all of which carry the virus. Corporate ethical codes cannot embrace the ethics of science belonging to one of the fathers of the Golden Age of Danish Science, Immanuel Kant. However, by close examination his distinction between aesthetics and ethics, the antidote to this deadly virus, is made visible.
Wed, 27 Jan 2016 06:25:07 -0600Mainstream human survival medical science is governed by a mechanical mindset, which has sentenced all present life in the universe to second law thermodynamic extinction. From that perspective it can develop admirable pockets of quasi negentropy but it still belongs to a death cult, unable to reason about the living process being associated with first cause principles associated with Cantorian infinite fractal logic. As a result of this, science is now accelerating entropic chaos in the form of a 3D stereoscopic virus that epidemiologists, responsible for the evolutionary health and well being of communities, cannot halt. They have acknowledged that it is now a global epidemic.
Tue, 26 Jan 2016 06:48:31 -0600Somewhere in the annals of history lies hidden the whereabouts of other brothers of man. Survivors of an advanced past civilization that managed to escape one of the most destructive periods in the history of our planet. Could the Voynich Manuscript, Stonehenge, or the Lost Continent of Atlantis that hold the clues as to where what would be our ancestors actually are?
Thu, 17 Dec 2015 06:27:15 -0600Very recent scientific discoveries are turning modern science upside down. This process appears to be sympathetic to the ethos of the 3rd Century BC Greek science for ethical ends. The discovery of the life force governing optimum seashell growth and development through 50 million years of space time was heralded as a major mathematical discovery from 20th Century literature (IEEE, Washigton). The same research methodology can now apply to generating simulations of optimum growth and development of the humanoid sphenoid bone. This should generate a rigorous scientific blueprint for future human survival.
Fri, 11 Dec 2015 06:33:26 -0600The part that stereoscopic inner vision plays in human evolution is unknown to prevailing mainstream science, but is now an integral part of quantum biological research. It has been found to be relevant to the evolution of human health and wellbeing. Lack of scientific understanding of this evolutionary phenomenon is maintained by mainstream science because that science is unable to link this phenomenon's relevant mathematical structure to the logic of infinite fractal reality. Prevailing science is governed by the dictates of the second law of thermodynamics, which has sentenced all life in the universe to extinction. Concepts concerning infinite evolution cannot be tolerated under these conditions. However, the philosopher of science, Immanuel Kant, in his work underpinning the Electromagnetic Golden Age of Danish Science has made it possible for the evolution of infinite stereoscopic logic to be observed, in contradiction to the second law of thermodynamics.
Wed, 25 Nov 2015 06:15:55 -0600Global terrorism is now an alarming reality. The ability of fanatical extremists to radicalise young people to negate natural feelings of compassion in order to commit murder and destruction can be considered a medical problem. Global society is governed by the second law of thermodynamics heat death sentence of extinction. The extremists can compare this modern scientific heat death cult with a vague religious escape clause for civilisation's extinction. Profound modern discoveries have identified that the emotional functioning within the human mind is a stereoscopic inner vision intuition of the living process evolving as an infinite fractal expression rather than a sentence of extinction. Causing impairment to this naturally occurring stereoscopic phenomena is known to be associated with autism. The activities of the terrorists appear to be bringing about an inner vision panic state of emotion resulting in a severe autistic lack of compassion. The solution to this problem is simply to make it known that people are working together to bring about a realisation that humanity is not doomed to extinction by obsolete laws of prevailing science.

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 14:10:25 -0500Someone once remarked that it is our own imagination which is within all of us complements the merry-go-round of life. Much can be said about imagination for without those childhood day dreams that all children have the many marvels of the ages wouldn't have been made. All through-out history mankind has been inventing devises that have continually made improvements in man's existence.
Mon, 24 Aug 2015 06:53:58 -0500In 1953 the British Medical Journal published a selection of papers celebrating the importance of stereoscopic functioning in man and other animals. It has been demonstrated that mainstream science has no awareness of the importance of that research to new theories in neurological science. Immanuel Kant and Emmanuel Levinas' in-depth investigation of the Platonic 'Science for ethical ends' helped establish the basis for the electromagnetic Golden Age of Danish Science. Their conclusion that the creative, artistic mind utilized an asymmetrical electromagnetic cerebral process to intuit future technologies, later alluded to by the discoverer of the electromagnetic field, Hans Christian Oersted. The artist, Salvador Dali's stereoscopic museum in Spain attempted to make such theories visible to the general public but his artwork did not resonate with the viewers' own vision. However, paintings when viewed through asymmetrical electromagnetic glasses clearly reveal the sought for evolutionary development of stereoscopic inner vision.
Thu, 23 Jul 2015 15:12:55 -0500Is there a smarter civilization out there that humans don't even realize? Are they so far more advanced that they think nothing of us?
Wed, 24 Jun 2015 05:53:05 -0500In 2013 the journal, Science, published the discovery that junk DNA had been incorrectly classified. A second gene language had been discovered written above the DNA helix, emanating from junk DNA, and was about the evolution of human health and wellbeing. In 2004 the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America stated in the article, Binocularity and brain evolution in primates, that stereo vision was a complex function but its evolutionary purpose was unknown. This is no longer the case. 19th Century linguistic colour perception theory has been found to explain the evolutionary function of stereoscopic vision related to the language of junk DNA. This matter warrants urgent presentation to the general public regarding its future significance to health and wellbeing.
Fri, 29 May 2015 14:18:58 -0500In his excellent book: "Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future" Peter Thiel asks a question. He calls it 'the draconian question' which is being asked of every person he considers employing. The question is posed on page 1, and for the rest of the book, that question kept going around in my mind: What would my response be if asked the draconian question?
Tue, 19 May 2015 06:11:17 -0500"Flipped learning" is the model of instruction that permits the student to being able to apply more information and do collaborative learning in the classroom. This teaching method refers to the use of teacher-created videos on a media device which permit the student to watch the lesson online outside the class, freeing the students to have more time on application when they come into class.

Tue, 20 Jan 2015 10:40:42 -0600The First Vatican Council began on June 29, 1868. This Catholic system existed until October 1958. Its primary purpose was to deal with contemporary problems such as rationalism, liberalism, and materialism at the time. Next, the Second Vatican Council was started in January 1959 and primarily deals with equipping the church to more effectively re-evangelize the world through a language that the world can understand. Both councils have never fully addressed three prominent dilemmas of the church that remain to continue to this day such as the accessibility to the Eucharist, homosexual preferences, and a women's right to choose. Therefore, this document addresses these three problem areas of the church and also provides reasons requiring a Third Vatican Council. My reasons for such a radical change thus follows below.
Tue, 16 Dec 2014 05:10:13 -0600The concept of the pursuit of happiness as mentioned within the Constitution of the United States of America was erroneously based upon the assumption that Newton's theory of gravitational force was caused by mechanistic physics principles. However, Newton had published to the contrary. The discovery of Science-Art optical mathematical principles late last century was fused into quantum biology in 2010. The historical mathematical basis of this discovery was found to have originated from ancient Egyptian atomic mathematics developed by Pythagoras and depicted on the Eye of Horus symbol depicted on the Great Seal of America. Its optical significance relates to the discovery in cancer research of Shannon-Weiner information energy contradicting our understanding of quantum mechanics. This issue is now one of great importance for the future health and betterment of humanity.
Mon, 01 Dec 2014 06:35:20 -0600During the 20th Century the mechanical logic of quantum mechanics ruled global technological culture. The result of this in the 21st Century is one of an obsession with continual economic growth bringing about an acceleration of worldwide economic chaos.

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 06:33:46 -0500We nearly all desire immortality and we nearly all tend to look to a God of Theology to provide it. However, one physicist, Frank J. Tipler promises you a resurrection, an afterlife and immortality all thanks to the god of physics, or as he calls it the laws of physics. The laws of physics will give you what you seek, and you don't have to do anything good, bad or ugly to achieve this. It will just happen. That's the good news. The bad news is that he is his own convert, no other physicists believes a word Frank Tipler says on the subject.
Fri, 29 Aug 2014 13:54:17 -0500Were the seeds of humanity the result of some extra-terrestrial seeding in our ancient past? Were we helped to inadvertently create the 'Planet of the Homo sapiens'' when an ancient civilisation inspired by extra-terrestrials was devastated through some major global catastrophe around 10,500 years ago? Why has this question of our extra-terrestrial past been suppressed or even forbidden from our history on humanity!?
Wed, 13 Aug 2014 10:55:01 -0500Although there are many end of time themes and theses around, science has its own form of end times. There are concepts in science that can help prediction and end time. Unfortunately or fortunately all the cases that could be supported by science are not to take place in the near future. Once case is still exceptional; if we wanted to bring destruction upon us and started displaying our nuclear explosive powers, then we might see the day that the humans were extinct.
Fri, 23 May 2014 11:26:26 -0500This article advocates for a national but state-administered social service draft, whereby youth between the ages of 16 and 21 would be participate in a variety of activities designed to develop personal skills and contribute to the social, economic and structural benefit of American society. Some hypothetical pros and cons of such a program are discussed along with rough-draft details on specific activities, rewards, rank hierarchies and placements.
Mon, 12 May 2014 08:26:26 -0500There's been a lot of excellent science shows on television, many available on DVD and/or on YouTube. Carl Sagan's Cosmos immediately comes to mind and MythBusters while highly entertaining has a lot of solid science content too. However, IMHO, the cream of the crop, the best of the best, has been the Through the Wormhole series hosted by actor Morgan Freeman. Each of the episodes examines one of those nebulous Big Questions. Here are the questions asked about our future, and my personal opinions on each.
Thu, 01 May 2014 07:21:13 -0500Not long ago, an online acquaintance Jared Kent noted that in the future we won't need as many people working, basically because we will have the labor all taken care of by robots; everything from self-driving and sorting mail delivery, trash pick-up, bus drivers, pilots to robotic instructors, teachers, military personnel and prostitutes --whoops, forget that last one, too many Science Fiction novels I've read as of late -- never the less you get the point, or sharp poke in the eye if you are the next to lose your job to a robot. Let's talk.
Thu, 17 Apr 2014 06:52:38 -0500The other day, I was discussing with an acquaintance the concept of reusable booster rockets to launch satellites into space. There have been many concepts floated such as floating them up on dirigibles to the upper atmosphere and launching from there, or launching from ultra-high altitude aircraft. Another concept is to have a smaller version of a rocket space shuttle. One of the more intriguing concepts is to allow the boosters to come back and land on a runway via a robotic drone concept. All potential concepts, but I have another idea.
Tue, 01 Apr 2014 15:00:41 -0500Industrialization has been coupled with increasing harmful effects to the environment in the past. Call for changes were extended, beginning from set-up protests up to constitutional enactments. Several bodies agree to it, and one of them was the construction industry where practices have shifted to come up with the term GREEN. What does a Green Building mean? What is it significance in this world? Is it necessary for this new concept?
Fri, 28 Mar 2014 08:09:57 -0500For years I've been reminding human engineers that they are not always as smart as they portray, and things get worse when they are forced to be "yes men" to the political hierarchy of the society or civilization. China and its central planning strategies of the communist party stands tall with pride for their wise choices and leadership. No one may counter this "truth" as they see it. That's fine if all things are on the up-and-up and reality checks are ever present, but what happens when they aren't and human error, Murphy, and the law of unintended consequences prevail? Disaster! And you don't need Watson for proof of that when it comes to complex systems. Let's talk shall we?
Wed, 26 Mar 2014 08:08:22 -0500With new tech, could we add a digital world that helps everyone succeed and prosper? What if our screens deliver the world's best services, resources and knowledge as part of using devices? Could we become a much more successful world?
Sat, 15 Mar 2014 09:17:33 -0500India is a country which has though adopted the Right to Education Act and has made a mention of this right in Article 21A of the Indian Constitution; even then India has strived to achieve a literacy rate of only 74-75 percent. This figure may seem huge, but the simple criteria to certify a person as literate along with the advancing world is referred; the figure seems to be a small one only. To determine the literacy rate along with the percent of educated people we need to discuss upon various heads of education in India.

The world population is 7 billion, leaving five billion people still not online. Most of this is the developing world and remote areas.
Wed, 26 Feb 2014 07:11:33 -0600The other day, I was discussing crypto-currencies with an acquaintance at our local Starbucks, and he let me know he was working with a couple of entrepreneurs who'd previously been academic experts in IT Security. Of course, for crypto-currencies it is all about safe transfer of the data, and the trust in the intrinsic value of those one's and zero's, or Q-bits. Perhaps, I might take a look at their business plan, although these digital currencies have had some bumps in the road to the future I am sure will be the future norm - that's the way the world is headed it appears.
Mon, 24 Feb 2014 09:57:01 -0600The article discusses the need for every philosopher to be a critical thinker, and it introduces philosopher Rene Descartes's theory that a philosopher needs to doubt everything at least once in his or her life to discover that the only truth is that one exists. Thus his statement, "I think; therefor I am". Accordingly Descartes believes this to be the only thing that he can be sure of.
Mon, 24 Feb 2014 07:03:19 -0600Cross Pollination is the key to finding the best applications for divergent and innovative technologies. As a quasi-Futurist, and Founder of a Think Tank I have come over the years to realize the value of good ideas and how to help nurture such concept across venues, industries and unique areas of the human endeavor. Let me take this opportunity to present such a case study.

Sun, 26 Jan 2014 08:01:29 -0600Not long ago, I was discussing the rapidly approaching reality of augmented school curriculums using Avatars, Online Lectures, and Robots. Sounds like a Science Fiction film, but this reality is coming faster than most people realize. I'd like to present some additional dialogue on this.
Fri, 24 Jan 2014 06:55:56 -0600Now that the entire concept of 3-D printing has been introduced to the world, and mind you it's nothing new, not really - people are now considering all the possible applications. For instance, think about the future of 3-D printing at the molecular level, call it molecular assimilation if you will. Not long ago, I was discussing this with an acquaintance half way around the world.
Fri, 24 Jan 2014 06:55:46 -0600A year or so ago, I was speaking with a fluid dynamic specialist dealing with efficiencies of burn for special nozzles used for such things as cooking, heating, and combustion of gas fired turbines. He had perfected a system, taking knowledge and research from many corners of human science. The concept was patented by the company he worked for and the rest was history. Still, I thought, why not take some of that "history" and stand on the shoulder of giants and take it to another level.
Mon, 20 Jan 2014 07:13:38 -0600Today we are collecting information at a mind-blowing pace. NASA noted that an hour of high definition surveillance of our climate, or facing the other way into space could accumulate terabytes of information within a few hours. Wow, so how can we transfer such data through old satellite bandwidth ability or store it all once we get it back here on terra firma? Storage is a lot cheaper today, but it isn't free by any means. Let's talk.
Mon, 20 Jan 2014 07:12:49 -0600We need a new long-term information storage strategy, and if we do not find one we will not be able to enjoy the future promises before us. If we are to store everyone's DNA, every world transaction, and all the data from all the objects connected to the Internet of things, and all the NASA data, particle physics experiments, and all the information that's created by 7 billion plus people on the planet each and every day we are going to need a better way. Okay so, let's talk shall we?

Mon, 09 Dec 2013 08:03:43 -0600Facilitated communication is controversial strategy used with individuals with severe nonverbal autism, who have difficulty expressing themselves independently using alternative communication aids. Most people view the support as physical and emotional. I suggest it has an energetic component and differs amongst facilitators and their partners, depending on knowledge base, bias and frequency of their joined vibration. Most importantly, I suggest that learning to facilitate and pairing with these remarkable individuals could help facilitate immense progress in areas of science and medicine. Just think of the possibilities! Could they for example help dedicated researchers find a cure for cancer? I believe this is not a fantasy but an untapped reality.

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 06:54:41 -0600Autism Telepathy is a profound gift that is not about thought sending and receiving as much as a shared understanding of higher level thought forms. It is accompanied by knowing and loving and being as one. It is a unifying force of wholeness that dissolves the need to be at odds with ourselves or others. Conscious surrender to the process brings us home to the God within where all systems are in place, radiating warmth and kinship. Divisiveness lessens and unity evolves as an acceptance of shared understanding become reality. This article is a combination of my ego based experience and information received through the process of this evolving form of telepathy. Enjoy!

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 08:10:24 -0600Mars is a challenging planet for human life, especially if we decide to live on the surface of the planet as we do on Earth. I guess we'd be much better off to live under the ground on Mars for obvious reasons - less solar and space radiation, and the chance to better control our environment to support this carbon-based pi-pedal life form we call Homo sapiens. Okay so, let's discuss this shall we?

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 10:16:25 -0600Nobody can argue against the importance of learning the intricacies of the English language. It teaches us to effectively articulate our ideas, opinions, needs and wants. Mathematics is equally crucial, without addition and subtraction everyday mundane tasks like managing a weekly budget and the hours you have left at work become impossible challenges.
Sun, 03 Nov 2013 20:31:11 -0600I have very little doubt that in the future we will have computer chips on our skulls permanently attached or implanted underneath our skulls for human brain/computer interface. Perhaps you can get a PhD in any subject you want merely by purchasing the chip and having it implanted. Maybe you can get multiple PhD's in the subjects of your choice and then try to cross pollinate all that information in your mind to come up with new discoveries and innovations.
Tue, 29 Oct 2013 10:38:32 -0500When you think of extraterrestrials, you probably think of ET, Mr. Spock, Klaatu, Yoda, Klingons and Romulans, the Blob, Martians with heat rays, Alien vs. Predator, the Sontarans, or perhaps the 'Greys' of UFO lore. However, if you really had an extraterrestrial close encounter of the up-close-and-personal kind, I'd wager the odds are far greater that you'd be shaking 'hands' with something more akin to Robby the Robot.
Fri, 04 Oct 2013 07:26:28 -0500Google Glass has so many applications it's hard to say where to start isn't it? Mechanics like the idea of having the objects manual right in front of their eyes, and it would sure come in handy when traveling or trying to find directions. Coaches love the idea in looking at stats when watching their players, and it might really come in handy for the military or policing. And really who hasn't wanted all that computing power right where they need it all the time?
Tue, 01 Oct 2013 06:43:20 -0500The challenges of putting humans on other celestial bodies are endless. Consider some of the most pressing challenges; Oxygen, Water, Space Radiation, and Food. Yes, that's just to name a few, and are you sure you'll be okay without your smart phone - no 3G Wireless carriers on the Moon, on Mars, or on an asteroid for that matter, plus communicating with Earth has a time delay, not bad from the Moon, but depending on the orbit location, it could be significant on Mars, and I certainly don't want to pay for those long-distance charges.
Mon, 30 Sep 2013 08:30:08 -0500Today, robotic scientists and engineers have created amazing exoskeletons, prosthesis, and human add-on parts. One might dare to ask with all these technologies plus implants; knees, hips, and other parts - at one point do we become more robot than human - and would that be called; "death by robot" and at what point would you say you are no longer human? Let's talk.
Thu, 26 Sep 2013 07:21:02 -0500Where I live, slap, bang in the middle of Australia, we have four or so thousand of the most tribal Aborigines in Australia. Many of them are said to be disadvantaged, although, the truth is they have access to much more from Australian taxpayers than any other group in our country. Almost everything is free, but unfortunately, few take advantage of what is on offer with the sole exception of welfare payments, locally called, "sit-down money" for reasons I need not explain.
Mon, 23 Sep 2013 11:20:17 -0500In the present world most of the people are attracted towards the MNC and the candidates interested in making a career in defence forces are few. The way MNC's attract people with a huge amount of money and the royalty they get has made people switch away from joining defence services. Why defence services?
Wed, 11 Sep 2013 06:20:06 -0500We all know that using performance enhancements for sports are a no-no. It's not fair to the other competitors, and negates the entire purpose of human competition in sports. We know it goes on in many sports and no one says anything, you can tell by the humans that play the sport that they have been taking these enhancements. Right now, kids are taking psychiatric drugs to improve their school performance. This is problematic because many college professors grade on a curve.
Mon, 09 Sep 2013 06:16:55 -0500Well, they say self-reflection is an important thing for the human psyche and in the future perhaps you will have no choice in the matter, especially if you are looking at yourself in a mirror and you are wearing your Google Glass spectacles. The more you put online, on your blog, Facebook page, then the more information there will be to look at. What if you stand between two mirrors, that endless mirror sensation - will you be able to see through time and space?
Tue, 27 Aug 2013 08:55:39 -0500I happened upon this process of "merging consciousness" while using facilitated communication with non-verbal children with autism. It is a form of telepathy that has expanded my awareness and taught me what it means to truly be connected with another person at a subconscious level.
Thu, 22 Aug 2013 10:02:16 -0500A radical view about the nature of reality, and about the very existence of the universe. What if the entire universe is but a simulation? What if there are actual indicators that this is the case?
Wed, 07 Aug 2013 07:45:01 -0500Einstein had called it "spooky action, at a distance," which in many regards kind of sums up in layman's terms some of the observations found in quantum mechanics. It's probably one of the most interesting topics in physics, and once we learn how it all works, we can certainly use this to our advantage by exploiting all the known laws of physics known up to this point, especially in such areas as communication, energy, healthcare, materials science, space travel, and just about every other thing. Over the years, I've run a think tank, and one of the...
Fri, 02 Aug 2013 07:22:29 -0500Okay so, for a good many years I've been trying to come up with a way to send information faster than the speed of light. I keep reading that it can't be done, why you ask? Because Einstein hypothesized as much, still, that doesn't make sense to me considering what we know now and how quantum physics is supposed to exist. The ability of shared pairs, complementary particles to hum, buzz, vibrate, or dance regardless of location in unison to one-another, means that we ought to be able to send information in this way, by vibrating one and watching the other.
Mon, 29 Jul 2013 06:20:26 -0500Everyone knows that the US Postal Service is having severe challenges maintaining a profitable composure. Indeed, I doubt anyone actually believes that it will ever make a profit. This is typical of government agencies and it hardly matters if it is the USPS moving mail or Amtrak moving people, bureaucrats are the wrong leaders and the public sector is the wrong venue. Okay so, enough preaching to the choir here. But I do have several relevant suggestions, some of which are tongue and cheek.
Fri, 26 Jul 2013 14:16:42 -0500Learn all about online learning institutions. What you thought you knew might be wrong.
Wed, 24 Jul 2013 08:20:26 -0500Learn why traditional schools are shown to halt learning. The argument for online schools gains momentum.
Mon, 22 Jul 2013 07:27:29 -0500Even though scientists don't know what killed off the dinosaurs, or if that many of the current rodents and birds today are the evolutionary end of that chain, one thing is known. There were catastrophic changes, perhaps over long periods of time which helped cause those dinosaur species to die off, or helped create the evolutionary changes which bring us the current life on the surface of this planet. Let's say for the sake of argument, that the dinosaurs didn't die off, that they didn't have enough food for their large size, that there was a large asteroid that hit the Earth, major volcanoes, killer viruses, or some other calamity.
Thu, 11 Jul 2013 15:55:46 -0500Electronic games are one of the favorite leisure activities among people of all ages and social classes, thus electronic games deserve our reflection as an important cultural phenomenon. The question now for educational leaders and school administrators is how this technology could be inserted in the classroom.
Wed, 10 Jul 2013 09:31:09 -0500Anything that prevents our children from having a better learning environment will create insecure citizens in the future. If we don't give them opportunities, we can not expect that the kids and their school results will change!
Sat, 06 Jul 2013 12:33:05 -0500The other day, I was reading an interesting book about schizophrenia and multiple personalities. Many people are diagnosed with mild schizophrenia, and the real crazy cases that you hear about, or which are sometimes portrayed in Hollywood movies are not all that common. Nevertheless, many schizophrenics are able to function in society even with these mental challenges. If they can function, what if you could have multiple minds in one brain?
Sat, 06 Jul 2013 10:53:26 -0500Scientists have learned quite a bit about upper atmosphere weather patterns. You see things move around a lot up there, it's not like the ionosphere starts at a certain altitude evenly around the globe. In many cases it's like a flickering flame, meaning it is quite uneven. Further, things are complicated when there are solar flares and our atmosphere is compressed. If we are shooting a rocket up into space or some astronauts, we need to know where certain parts of the atmosphere and the density involved are great, or lessened.
Tue, 02 Jul 2013 13:59:57 -0500We are in the midst of the destructive effects of global warming with temperature models showing steep increases, melting polar caps, acidification of the oceans and erratic weather. Is this the end?
Mon, 24 Jun 2013 14:26:46 -0500An educational strategy based write up for medical students. While the admirable medical student works away, the long term strategy for paying off the cost medical school takes it's toll. Planning the financials now!
Thu, 20 Jun 2013 13:15:46 -0500This final installment of a collaboration model of adoption wraps up the idea of how to work within the current system by adapting and changing elements to better meet the needs of the children involved in adoption. Understanding what motivates the adoption industry to solicit birth mothers and adoptive parents to make an adoption occur is vital. Understanding that motivation gives a foundation for change in adoption practices.
Mon, 17 Jun 2013 15:03:41 -0500Attending, persevering through, and ultimately graduating from medical school is a feat on it's own. Learn what avenues you can take in order to pay for medical school before entering the world of business.
Wed, 12 Jun 2013 07:50:13 -0500Education in India still needs several reformations. The chief problem associated with Education in India is the lack of respect for creative and off road thinking. The various Universities and Colleges in India promote book worms which degrades the thinking potential of our human brain. The drained support for new ideas and innovations lowers the standard of education in India. They stick to the old methodology and rarely implement new style into education. For this very reason, the only goal of students across the nation has been limited to gaining good marks for the various admission and semester examinations. It has come to a standard where the purpose of learning is confined to only getting good marks, and its value is soon forgotten after the ardor dies.
Tue, 04 Jun 2013 18:03:31 -0500Technology is constantly advancing, giving us new ways to interact with each other and the world. With these new opportunities come new privacy concerns that we need to address as a society to determine what is acceptable and what is an invasion of privacy.
Tue, 04 Jun 2013 08:07:01 -0500What direction will future nations take in the coming century? Will we recognise the nation-state institutions we have up until now taken for granted, or will new systems evolve?
Tue, 28 May 2013 15:31:00 -0500In the US educational system, the primary focus of learning is to memorize other people's ideas. Unfortunately, this does not teach you how to think and develop your own ideas. On the surface, it seems like it does. However, in our current paradigm, intelligence is primarily based on good memory. Yet, success is based on complex thinking and turning useful ideas into practical application. It is time to rethink why schools exist and the methods used to make our children into the brilliant human beings they are.
Sun, 26 May 2013 23:42:07 -0500Well, we all know that our coworkers can do some pretty stupid things at times. It's as if the class clown never grows up. Have you ever looked through the Dilbert Series where someone captures a photocopy of their rear end while sitting on the copy machine? First of all, this is really stupid because it can break the machine and we already know that copy machines are very temperamental. Secondly, taking a picture of your butt on the copy machine is even less than childish.
Wed, 15 May 2013 09:50:34 -0500An article about the importance of innovation and design with specific focus on, architecture. A revisiting of the statement, "Form follows function".
Mon, 13 May 2013 09:17:56 -0500Remember back in the day when your favorite toys would change color underwater or if you left them out in the sun for too long? As cool as it was back then, an understanding of the science behind that color changing technology lends to a similar sense of amazement as it did so many years ago. The mechanism behind this change is called thermochromism, wherein a temperate variation produces a transition between two colors of the visible spectrum.
Thu, 09 May 2013 07:02:51 -0500You might not realize this but vibrational noise energy causes disease, it also causes cancer, and causes the cells in your body to vibrate at unnatural frequencies. You might think that all this is nonsense, but it's not, that's how it all works. Ambient noise is not good for your health and the louder and more obnoxious the worse it is. Those who live near airports and freeways need to really be careful, make sure they get lots of sleep and stay healthy so they don't compromise their immune systems.
