1. Good News
LED "direct replacement" lamps get cheaper:
The Evil Empire gets a free pass in the USA, but not in countries that have
an actual government.
Increasingly, Google's restraint of trade crimes, which get no attention from
enforcement in the USA (such that it is), are bringing it under fire in countries that have rule
of law. Here's a great example:
This battery break-through makes wind and solar power much more viable:
When you consider the huge water footprint from generating electricity from
coal, this will also have implications for the looming water shortage.
Unfortunately, fracking permanently consumes large amounts of our limited
freshwater (renders it un-reusable) and fracking is growing. But reducing the coal
burning will help offset that somewhat. Maybe reducing the coal burning enough
will render tuna fish safe to eat in only 150 years or so from now, too.
Now, a way to cool buildings without using electricity:
It seems to me this would also be a way to totally counter any anthropomorphic
heating of the planet, thereby ending the global warming "debate." And we have
real environmental issues that the "tax us for carbon" scams have been
distracting us from. So maybe with that particular circus put to rest we can focus our attention
on real issues that really matter.
There soon may be a way for people to browse and text twice as
fast while driving:
Well, OK, that's not the real benefit of this. What I see as the primary benefit
is Websites that adjust to mobile devices will be able to offer content that's
more rich instead of just laming things down. Another benefit is if you're on a capped data plan you might save
The most effective way to fix the major defects of the mobile computing
experience is to increase the size of the device to, say, an ATX case. Then add
a 24-inch LCD monitor, full size keyboard, and mouse; finally, connect it to the
100MB/sec access coming out of your cable modem. Gee, doesn't that sound a lot
like a desktop computer? Of course, the whole reason for a mobile device is the
ability to take it with you; supplement your desktop, don't try to replace it.
Maintenance Technology Magazine reported that, in October of this year, Phoenix
Contact opened a newly expanded development and manufacturing facility at its
USA headquarters near Harrisburg, PA.
This is a three-story, 125,000 square foot addition. It has 50,000 square feet
for production and 50,000 for offices and laboratories. The other 25,000 square
feet includes an expanded cafeteria/kitchen, training rooms, and wellness
office. It also includes a new combined cooling, heating, and power system.
Pretty serious stuff.
Why did they build it? This is a German-owned company, and the corporate office
back in Germany said they expanded to accommodate the operation's growing
workforce and the increased demand for local (USA) manufactured products. The
workforce at this site totaled 521, as of October. This can't replace the
millions of jobs destroyed over the past 5 years by Obama's 80% increase in the
federal debt combined with his Unaffordable Care Act, but every little bit
And it's good news that job-creating companies can still function in America,
despite the Obama mis-administration's extreme efforts to kill them off.

3. Brainpower tip
Correlation is not causation. Many people believe that cognitive decline is a
normal consequence of aging. The reality is that cognitive decline is a normal
consequence of not protecting yourself against the stupidity epidemic.
Yes, age does take its toll on the brain. But not to any degree that explains
the huge IQ drop that many people experience as they get older. Consider a few
Younger people are often
in study-based lifestyles. Going to school, learning a new job, etc. A
problem arises when a person treats these experiences as phases to get past.
What's that problem? You stop a huge area of mental stimulation.
Younger people often must
puzzle out the answer, while a person with much more experience can simply
draw a solution from memory. This is the classic "use or lose it" game, and
most people choose to lose it.
People tend to become
less physically active as they mature, thereby violating one of the foundations
of brain-building. Overwhelming evidence shows that heavy exercise done
regularly is very, very good for the brain.
Think about the many factors
that can contribute to losing your smarts, and you can see you have many choices
that can make your IQ go up or down over time. The reason it goes down for the
vast majority of people is they stop working at being smarter.
4. Finance tip
Here's some information about one of the biggest, most devastating criminal
scams in human history. This came out some time ago. Notice all the predictions?
Notice how many have come true?
Once you get to the investment advice, you can quit the video. The point is
the predictions have come true. What's the solution? Now that our dictator will
presumably be facing a two-branch government system, there is hope for change.
It's unlikely this illegal scam will be repealed in toto, but it can be
dismantled bit by bit.
Send a letter of support to your representative (or misrepresentative, as the
case may be) and to both of your senators letting them know you are counting on
them to help end this scam by any lawful means. Using the word "lawful" send an
additional, highly relevant message.
If your misrepresentative voted for this scam, write a scathing letter to
that criminal. If that criminal lost the "election" this past November, this
exercise isn't pointless (it helps ward off recidivism). If the criminal
survived the "election" or was not up for "re election" the letter will help let
the criminal know maybe s/he can make amends by helping make things right.
Also, it's important to challenge any zombies who support Obummercare. You do
not want these people spreading the poison. Always refer to it as a devastating
criminal scam, because that's what it is.
5. Security tip
|Most savvy Internet users know not to use the Google
"search engine," a spam site that has morphed into an ad-selling spy
machine. Greed has a funny way of corrupting people, and at Google the
corruption is truly astounding.|
Bing and Yahoo provide a better search experience, and they don't
(as far as we know) spy on you. So boycotting Google is a good first step in
As for browsers, Mozilla is the best major browser for
security. You can find more information about that on the Mozilla site.
Because Mozilla is security-oriented, they recently added Duck Duck Go to
their roster of search providers. See:
Note: If you use Mozilla for personal privacy and security reasons, don't
contradict that effort by setting your default search engine to Google. Note
that Mozilla itself recently bumped Google out of this spot in favor of
Yahoo. It's unclear whether the reason was the vastly superior search
experience Yahoo provides over Google or the reason was Google's total lack
of ethics and accountability made the folks at Mozilla nervous.
6. Health tip/Fitness tips
Science News mentioned an interesting Website, in its 18OCT2014 issue:
This site tracks obesity rates in states across the USA (only 50 states, not
the 58 states mentioned by Obama). It has line graphs showing
these rates back to 1990, so you can see the changes over time. All states
have deteriorated, but some especially so.
The real health picture is far worse than obesity stats indicate, however.
Most people who aren't fat enough to be classified as obese are still far
too fat. The obesity data are not nearly as useful as the over-fat data. Not
only that, but the definition of "obese" seems to be a moving target. The %
body fat to be "obese" is higher today than it once was. But it really
doesn't matter, because talking about obesity when the real problem is being
over-fat is just an exercise in self-delusion.
Men are too fat when their body fat is in the double digits (it's not clear
if the high single digits are healthy, either). For women, the picture is a
bit more complicated due to the variety of breast sizes and other factors. A
simple test is to flex your back muscles; if you can't clearly see them, you
are too fat. They don't need to be in stark relief as in the photo at right,
but you should be able to see them.
The causes of being over-fat are well-known, but simply not discussed
honestly. If you want to see the causes, just look in the shopping carts at
your local grocery store (more about that, in a moment).|
Here's an experiment. Go into the produce area and look at the people there.
You will notice that most of them don't look very fat, although some might.
The more their carts are full of produce, the less fat they are likely to
be. Why do you think that is?
In any other part of the store (except maybe the "health foods" area), you
will not see that phenomenon. Why do you think that is?
Now, walk along the checkout lines. Look at the fat people. Look at what's
in their carts. Do you see soft drinks, processed wheat products,
convenience "foods" and lots of stuff in boxes and cartons? Now, look for a
cart that does not have these things. This may take you a while, because of
the huge popularity of the disease lifestyle. When you find a cart that does
not have these things, what do you see? Quite a bit in the way of fresh
fruits and vegetables. Notice the person who has that cart. This person
looks lean. Not anemic or skinny, but lean (there is a difference!). This person also doesn't have that sallow complexion that you'll
notice if you look around at the fat people. Why do you think that is?
It's not some mysterious obesity that is the problem.
To have a healthy body composition (fat to lean ratio), you simply have to
make smart food choices. Those choices will be very, very different from the
damaging choices made by the person whose fat body shows the evidence of
making damaging choices.
Yes, how much you eat is also a
factor. But again, you just need to match up bodies with shopping cart food
choices; do this, and you'll see what factor overshadows all others.
www.supplecity.com, you'll find plenty of informative, authoritative
articles on maintaining a lean, strong physique. It has nothing to
do with long workouts or impossible to maintain diets. In fact:|
- The best workouts are short and intense.
- A good diet contains far more flavors and satisfaction
than the typical American diet.
In ancient Greece, tossing an apple to a girl was a traditional proposal of
marriage. Catching it meant she accepted. Not a particularly useful bit of
information, but at least now you know. This sure saved a lot of money versus
today's diamond ring thing.
