Portugal legalized small amounts of drugs in 2011, realizing that prohibition does not work! We can all move beyond ignorance about drugs to realize their history, value, roles and the emergent science paving the way for genome specific custom made therapeutics for everyone! We can move beyond the ignorant history of one size fits all compounds for everyone!
Understanding gases, liquids & vapor pressure is not for the faint hearted. Serious science exists in Atmospheric Chemistry. Climate, weather, renewable energy, clothing, building codes, the greatest impacts of climate change will be on agriculture affecting the foundation of all human life: food!
All things human begin with electrochemical sparks in the human brain, those sparks of thought that connect people with communication, with all things human, things we learn from each other. Customers connecting to products & services in novel new ways due to e-commerce & data analytics.
Fresh water, an increasingly rare resource on earth, its heavy to move long distances in tanks like oil, and the costs of producing clean water from dirty water exceed the market value of water. Will wars be fought over fresh water in the future, a future where pollution from China has ruined water quality with industrial fallout the world over?
What does it mean to fully understand reality? With out finite little brain computers we can only know so much, each person unable to solve all the problems. No one has all the answers. Can information technology set mankind free into a brighter future?
Wearable tech entered my life back in 2013, starting with a Fitbit One, a clip on unit that tracks movement. The Fitbit Charge HR was next, followed up by a Fitbit Surge (Thanks Jaeson!). Now 4 years into "quantifying bodily movement, sleep & heart rate" I am starting to consider a platform shift away from Fitbit / Android to an all Apple digital eco-system unification for future emergent computing platforms in our home. Meg is already 2/3 rd's Apple with an iMac, iPhone SE combo & Fitbit Charge HR.
The awesome electrical connector that allows your TV, bluray player, Xbox One, PS4, Chrome Stick, Receiver, and Amplifier to talk to each other, sharing that data information that makes pixels on the screen glow with content that brain turns into experiences, sounds to convey music & speech & sound effects that enhance the depth of the experiences.
Neck problems, increased RF exposure, screen brightness light exposure induced sleeping problems, data addiction, information dependance, computer abuse, internet codependence, increased wireless service costs, increased annual spending on mobile electronics & accessories, could the smartphone revolution be giving rise to the human machine hybridization that paves that way to technological singularity!
Fitbit Surge is pure awesome, a bit clunky, produces a skin rash if you wear it too snug, has long battery life, very reliable bluetooth connectivity, awesome heart rate & sleep tracking + ongoing App improvements to the phone app dashboard on iPhone & Android phones.
Solid Oxide Fuel Cells can convert common hydrocarbon gasses like propane, LPG & natural gas into electricity for fuel cell vehicles that can refill in under 5 minutes using existing fuel infrastructure, essential for car sharing fleets where each vehicle has high daily utilization!
Electric Cars, Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops, Cordless Phones, iPods, Android, iPhone & more, many consumer electronics are powered by Lithium Ion batteries. Power tools are often powered by NiMH or NiCD batteries. The starting of most engines powered by PBA batteries. Here I explain how to get the most life out of each kind of rechargeable battery~
Radar, Night Vision, Pedestrian Detection a HUD highlighting, Automatic Headlight Brightness & Beam Profile Modulation, Parental Controls for Teen Driver Safety Enhancement, Active Driver Competence & Functionality Testing & in vehicle wifi hotspot via the vehicles LTE advanced connection or 5G wireless service.
The road to gigabit mobile internet hindered by phone modems (450mb/s iPhone 7, Galaxy S8) as network throughput speeds & capacity for VoLTE & Mobile Internet services. Many people fail to make use of existing LTE speeds that are widely available.
Steve Jobs & the iPhone 5 sparkled in my vision. Captured by the creative magic of Apple's marketing campaign behind aluminum unibody designs, several generations of iPods had earned my affinity for Apple's thoughtfully designed products years earlier!
Inspired by a retired Boeing engineer (Mr. Dabney), our Honda PCX-150 Scooter will be utilized for commuting along with a thermal insulating 1 piece rain suit to avoid the use of our antique Subaru for even more annual transportation cost savings.
Car culture, tires, gas pumps, motorcycles, trucks, buses, hover-boards & bicycles. "Wheel's" that move people & things. Muscle, motors & engines, the power to spin those "wheels" either biological, electrical or petrochemical energy (typical).
|Hydrogen Bonding of H20 (Water Aq.) Model|
Timing belt/ chain failure ruin an interference engine, causing the pistons & valves to collide with destructive forces. Fortunately automakers produced many non-interference engines over the years: here is a list. This one is for you Bruce (former Swype sales/ business development guy)
An infographic at Futurism.com about Human Evolution sparked a reflection so powerful that I have never felt so small or insignificant in the scope of history, but I feel fortunate to be alive at the start of the digital revolution that is paving the way towards a Kardashev Level 1 civilization.

Meg & I watch Netflix's Chefs Table together :) An unlikely source of inspiration to introduce intentional peace inducing thoughts & actions, the episode about Jeong Kwan gave us both great pause to stop & consider life with a new healthier perspective. I hope the consumption of this content will blossom a life long sequence of healthier thoughts as we forge our future together as one people.
The universe is made of matter & energy that mankind distorts with innovative technologies! On an Earthly scale by earthly little people, all of us with our finite 700TB memory compute brains trying to make sense of the world in a life long cycle of biological decline caused by aging. Today stem cells offering the solution to death itself in future well developed forms of today's early stem cell technology. Each of us genetically & socially unique, we are each emblematic of the era & cultures we find ourselves in.

I dropped my phone :/ from desk heigh onto the hardwood floor, but my foot slowed the phone down! The impact did not break the screen, as phone screens often break when phone impact the ground. Every 2 seconds someone in the USA breaks a phone screen. Made of glass is cool, except that it shatters easily. Be gentle with your phone if you want it to last? People upgrade to new phones for psychological reasons before they break their phones. The phone is going to be in someones possession for 6 months to 10 years, with a median upgrade centering around the 18-24 months interval. Poorly treated overcharged lithium ions lose most of their battery life after 24 months of constant 100% overcharging at night (which swell shrink fatigues the anode while also causing cracking of the cathode). Lithium ion batteries last longer when kept charged between 30 & 80%
I tried many software repair efforts before resorting to a partial disassembly given the number of small screws. In the end it was more time efficient to do the mechanical repair.
I found the video about this repair using google on youtube. Have a look for yourself!
Smartphone @ Home = Turn on Airplane Mode then enable Wifi, this will keep your phone from using high power RF to connect to a distant cell phone tower, the wifi connection will let you "data" and Text message! Turning off the cell radio with airplane mode also enhances battery life substantially.
Pay more for less that you can't fix, its glued together and not meant to be opened, ever! Ultrabooks offers a weaker, thinner, lighter computer in disposable fragile package, the Surface computers from Microsoft perhaps the most obvious example!

iMac Ram Upgrade
|Adding 8GB More User Replaceable|
Ram Easy With Door Access ^^
This Model was Shipped with 8GB of memory, something insufficient for the iMovie action I give this machine, nor was the factor memory amount enough to support my typical media heavy multi-tab internet + steam + more action. This upgrade was $54 and increased the Total Ram in this Machine to 4 x 4GB for 16GB
See the YouTube video I made about this ^^
Google updates "cardboard" with an upscale $100 Daydream headset that pairs with the expensive new Pixel's phones, but this system fails to deliver anything groundbreaking.
