Super Sonic is the past. But if corrections are made, super sonic travel may be the future in some form or another. The truth is that a Super Sonic aircraft is able to deliver passengers more quickly but expensively. The Concorde had its problems but the airlines and the manufacturers […]
Yes, Chinese Entrepreneurs are Innovative with Space Exporation On The Mind, Too #ChineseInnovations #ElonMuskIsNotSoSmart
The folks used to say Chinese people simply flout copyright laws by stealing western intellectual property, that is still partially true. However, not ALL Chinese entrepreneurs simply copy Western companies and content. Take Ruopeng Liu for example. His company is using helium to get into low levels of space which […]
I was talking to someone (in the know) about the Mars mission proposed by Elon Musk. And this babyboomer said it was too dangerous; the chances of the rocket not making it to Mars with the 50 – 100 passengers is very very high. Is he right? Musk certainly gets […]
Check out these handy charts which explains the difference between “second cousins” and “cousins once removed.” I’ve always struggled with understanding if my relative William French of Calgary is actually my cousin or my uncle or my nemesis. Just kidding on the nemesis bit:-) You see, William French’s mom and […]
Describing the revolt of the caring classes is David Graeber’s greatest contribution; he called them the “99%.” In this short video, David expands on this theme to suggest there is a quietly brewing problem in western countries; automation is displacing workers and workers have diminishing sense of meaning in their work.

The last 100 years saw the migration of millions of people into urban centres and then some of those people moved out to suburbs. As the technology in agriculture improved, the economics of extensive land ownership made less sense every incrimental season. However, the standard of living improved incrementally generally and unlike […]
Super Sonic speeds are rather remarkable. Notice that the water is being disrupted. I’m sure I would need to cover my ears in this situation. Can speed compensate for cost?
Richie Davidson’s talk at Google is rather boring but his findings are important. Meditation is not some weakling activity. It is critical for top performance and for brain workouts. Since the brain is plastic or maliable, we need to approach improving ourselves through neoroscience. In the future, we will treat […]

Tangential relevance is here to stay. I’m guessing there are some cunning aliens in Shopify’s marketing department. Nice video.
Excercising shapes the body and mind. Schwarzenegger believed in conquering the world, he has done that pretty well. It wasn’t luck, it was willpower (self-discipline). Although, he’s made some mistakes in life, he was driven by strong principles. He created goals for himself and then did what he could to […]
How might gamification be integrated into your everyday life? Well, probably not in the format suggested here. If you’ve ever seen old technology videos that try to predict modern day iterations, then you know that these types of predictions are wildly off. Still some food for thought.
