Tooth pic Art sculptures to scale

Meet Stan Munro, a 38-year-old man from Syracuse, New York who has been turning toothpicks into fantastic works of art. Stan has been using toothpicks for his art since his fifth year in school and has turned that passion into his profession.

 

This exhibit has taken him 6 years to complete, using over 6 million toothpicks and 170 liters of glue. Stan creates all his sculptures to scale and then signs and dedicates each one to his wife, Suzi.

spell check (humor)-Technology?

 

 

 From one of my golfing buddies ..

 Hi Jerry,

this is Tom next door.

I have a confession to make.

I’ve been riddled with guilt these past few months and have been trying to pluck up the courage to tell you to your face, but I am at least now telling you in text as I cannot live with myself a moment longer without you knowing.
 
 The truth is I have been sharing your wife, day and night when you’re
 not around.

In fact, probably more than you.
 I haven’t been getting it at home recently, but that’s no excuse, I know.

The temptation was just too much.

 I can no longer live with the guilt and I hope you will accept my sincerest apologies and forgive me.

It won’t happen again.

 Please suggest a fee for usage, and I’ll pay you.
 
 Regards, Jerry
 
 
 THE RESPONSE:
 
Jerry, feeling insulted and betrayed, grabbed his gun, and shot his neighbor dead.

He returned home where he poured himself a stiff drink and sat down on the sofa.
 He took out his phone where he saw he had a second message from his neighbor.
 
 THE SECOND MESSAGE:
 
 Hi Jerry,

 This is Tom next door again. Sorry about the typo on my last text.

 I expect you figured it out anyway, and that you noticed that darned
 Auto-Correct changed “wi-fi” to “wife” Technology hey?
 
Regards,

Tom

Cell Phone

we hope this information will help you in case you’ve not heard about this.

  1. FIRST   (Emergency)The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile network and there is an Emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly, this number 112 can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it  out.
  2. SECOND   (Hidden Battery Power)Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370#. Your cell phone will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge your cell phone next time.
  3. THIRD   (How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone? )
    To check your Mobile phone’s serial number, key in the following Digits on your phone:
    *#06# .
    A 15-digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. 

    If your phone is stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won’t get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can’t use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.
  4. FOURTH   (Free Directory Service for Cells)Cell phone companies are charging us $1.00 to $1.75 or more for 411 information calls when they don’t have to. Most of us do not carry a telephone directory in our vehicle, which makes this situation even more of a problem. When you need to use the 411 information option, simply dial:
    (800) FREE411   or (800) 373-3411     
    without incurring any charge at all.  Program this into your cell phone now.
  5. now you know all. Aren’t you happier? garbowski.net

 

Stop Putting Your Health In !

Wn we sit in our car and turn on the engine, we often, without thinking, turn on the A/C.  Every time we do this, we put our health, and the health of the people around us, in danger.

This occurs because when we leave our car outside, we always close the windows.  But even when we leave the car in the shade, it can accumulate 400-800 mg of benzene.

If you park the car in the sun, in a temperature higher than 16 degrees Celsius, the level of benzene can reach 2000-4000 mg, which is 40 times more than the permitted level.

By sitting in a car that had closed windows, people inhale the benzene, not knowing that this toxin affects the kidneys, the liver and the bone tissue.  Furthermore, it takes a lot of time and effort for our organisms to eliminate it.

The cars’ manuals state that we should open the car’s windows before turning on the A/C, but they don’t explain why, except that it is good for the performance of the car.

Medical Explanation:

The results of the research show that before it starts to cool the air, the air conditioner ejects all the heated air out, and with it – the benzene, a toxin that causes cancer.

Therefore, when you sit in your car, even if you don’t notice any smell of a heated plastic, open the windows for a few minutes and then turn on the A/C.  And when you turn on the car, leave the windows open for a few more minutes.

Continue practicing this habit while you are in your car in order to protect your organism from toxins, because the consequences can be extremely tragic.

future …

This will open your eyes to things beyond most of our comprehension. 

In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide.

Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they got bankrupt.

What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 10 year – and most people don’t see it coming.
Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on paper film again?

Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975.
The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore’s law.

So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a long time, before it became way superior and got mainstream in only a few short years.

It will now happen with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs.

Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Welcome to the Exponential Age.

Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years.
Uber is just a software tool, they don’t own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world.
Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don’t own any properties.

Artificial Intelligence: Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world.
This year, a computer beat the best Go player in the world, 10 years earlier than expected.
In the US, young lawyers already don’t get jobs.
Because of IBM Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans.
So if you study law, stop immediately.
There will be 90% less lawyers in the future, only specialists will remain.

Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, 4 time more accurate than human nurses.
Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans.
In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans.

Autonomous cars: In 2018 the first self driving cars will appear for the public.
Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted.
You don’t want to own a car anymore.
You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination.
You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and can be productive while driving.
Our kids will never get a driver’s license and will never own a car.
It will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% less cars for that.
We can transform former parking space into parks. 1.2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide.
We now have one accident every 100,000 km, with autonomous driving that will drop to one accident in 10 million km.
That will save a million lives each year.

Most car companies might become bankrupt.
Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels.
I spoke to a lot of engineers from Volkswagen and Audi; they are completely terrified of Tesla.

Insurance companies will have massive trouble because without accidents, the insurance will become 100x cheaper.
Their car insurance business model will disappear.

Real estate will change.
Because if you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood.

Electric cars will become mainstream until 2020.
Cities will be less noisy because all cars will run on electric.

Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean: Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can only now see the impact.
Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil.
The price for solar will drop so much that all coal companies will be out of business by 2025.

With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water.
Desalination now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter.
We don’t have scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking water.
Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as he wants, for nearly no cost.

Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year.
There will be companies who will build a medical device (called the “Tricorder” from Star Trek) that works with you phone, which takes your retina scan, you blood sample and you breath into it.
It then analyses 54 biomarkers that will identify nearly any disease.
It will be cheap, so in a few years everyone on this planet will have access to world class medicine, nearly for free.

3D printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from 18,000$ to 400$ within 10 years.
In the same time, it became 100 times faster.
All major shoe companies started 3D printing shoes.
Spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote airports.
The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past.
At the end of this year, new smartphones will have 3D scanning possibilities.
You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe at home.
In China, they already 3D printed a complete 6-storey office building.
By 2027, 10% of everything that’s being produced will be 3D printed.

Business opportunities: If you think of a niche you want to go in, ask yourself: “in the future, do you think we will have that?” and if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner?
If it doesn’t work with your phone, forget the idea.
And any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed in to failure in the 21st century.

Work: 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years.
There will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be enough new jobs in such a small time.

Agriculture: There will be a 100$ agricultural robot in the future.
Farmers in 3rd world countries can then become managers of their field instead of working all days on their fields.
Aeroponics will need much less water.

The first petri dish produced veal is now available and will be cheaper than cow produced veal in 2018.

Right now, 30% of all agricultural surfaces is used for cows.

Imagine if we don’t need that space anymore.

There are several startups who will bring insect protein to the market shortly.

It contains more protein than meat.

It will be labeled as “alternative protein source” (because most people still reject the idea of eating insects).

There is an app called “moodies” which can already tell in which mood you are.

Until 2020 there will be apps that can tell by your facial expressions if you are lying.

Imagine a political debate where it’s being displayed when they are telling the truth and when not.

Bitcoin will become mainstream this year and might even become the default reserve currency.

Longevity: Right now, the average life span increases by 3 months per year.

Four years ago, the life span used to be 79 years, now it’s 80 years.

The increase itself is increasing and by 2036, there will be more that one year increase per year.

So we all might live for a long long time, probably way more than 100.

Education: The cheapest smartphones are already at 10$ in Africa and Asia.

Until 2020, 70% of all humans will own a smartphone.

That means, everyone has the same access to world class education.

Every child can use Khan academy for everything a child learns at school in First World countries.

We have already released our software in Indonesia and will release it in Arabic, Suaheli and Chinese this Summer, because I see an enormous potential.

We will give the English app for free, so that children in Africa can become fluent in English within half a year…….

All these examples do NOT imply that gasoline is cheap; it just illustrates how outrageous some prices are.


You will be really suprised by the last one (at least, I was)!!!

Think a gallon of gas is expensive? 

This makes one think, and also puts things into perspective.

Diet Snapple, 16 oz , $1.29 … $10.32 per gallon! 

Starbuck’s Reg. Coffee 16 oz, $2.10… $16.80 per gallon! 

Lipton Ice Tea, 16 oz , $1.19 … $9.52 per gallon!

Gatorade, 20 oz , $1.59 ….. $10.17 per gallon!
 

Ocean Spray, 16 oz , $1.25 .. $10.00 per gallon!  


Brake Fluid, 12 oz , $3.15 …. $33.60 per gallon!


Vick’s Nyquil, 6 oz , $8.35 … $178.13 per gallon!


Pepto Bismol, 4 oz, $3.85 . $123.20 per gallon!
  

Whiteout, 7 oz , $1.39 ……… $25.42 per gallon!
  

Scope, 1.5 oz , $0.99 …..$84.48 per gallon!  

And this is the REAL KICKER    ….

Evian water, 9 oz , $1.49 …$21.19 per gallon!

$21.19 for a gallon of WATER!!

and the buyers don’t even know the source

(Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)

Ever wonder why computer printers are so cheap?

So they can hook you for the ink.    Someone calculated the cost of the ink and….

you won’t believe it but it’s true: $ 5,200 a gal.
$ 5200 A GALLON!!!

So, the next time you’re at the pump, be glad your car doesn’t run on water, Scope, Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or, G-od forbid, Printer Ink!!!!!

And – If you don’t share this along to at least one person, less people will know…… !!

  May you be happy and well

This definitely puts everything in perspective. 

Make sure you read all the statistics under the photo.

This has only been 104 years ago . . . Amazing!!!

1910 Ford

Show this to your friends, children and/or grandchildren!

The year is 1910, over one hundred years ago.

What a difference a century makes!

Here are some statistics for the Year 1910:

The average life expectancy for men was 47 years.

Fuel for this car was sold in drug stores only.

Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.

Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.

There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads.

The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower!

The average US wage in 1910 was 22 cents per hour.

The average US worker made between $200 and $400 per year.

A competent accountant could expect to earn $2,000 per year,

a dentist $2,500 per year, a veterinarian between $1,500 and

$4,000 per year, and a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year.

More than 95 percent of all births took place at HOME.

Ninety percent of all Physicians had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION!

Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which

were condemned in the press AND the government as ‘substandard.’

Sugar cost four cents a pound.

Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen.

Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.

Most women only washed their hair once a month, and used Borax

or egg yolks for shampoo.

Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering

into their country for any reason.

The five leading causes of death were:

  1. Pneumonia and influenza
  2. Tuberculosis
  3. Diarrhea
  4. Heart disease
  5. Stroke

The American flag had 45 stars.

The population of Las Vegas Nevada was only 30!

Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced tea hadn’t been invented yet.

There was no Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.

Two out of every 10 adults couldn’t read or write and only 6 percent of

all Americans had graduated from high school.

Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help.

There were about 230 reported murders in the ENTIRE U.S.A.

(but almost everyone had a gun!)

I am now going to forward this to someone else without typing it myself.

From there, it will be sent to others all over the WORLD . . . all in a matter of seconds!

Try to imagine what it may be like in another 100 years.

Something to ponder——-

This is USA oriented, but Canada & the rest will not be far behind. Whether  

these changes are good or bad depends in part on how we adapt to them. 

But, ready or not, here they come.

Maybe not in the seniors of today lifetimes but more likely in our children’s.


  1. The Post Office

    Get ready to imagine a world without the post office. They are so deeply in financial trouble that there is probably no way to sustain it long term. Email, Fed Ex, and UPS have just about wiped out the minimum revenue needed to keep the post office alive. Most of your mail every day is junk mail and bills.

  1. The Cheque
    Britain is already laying the groundwork to do away with cheque by 2018.  It costs the financial system billions of dollars a year to process checks.  Plastic cards and online transactions will lead to the eventual demise of the check.  This plays right into the death of the post office.  If you never paid your bills by mail and never received them by mail, the post office would absolutely go out of business.

  1. The Newspaper
    The younger generation simply doesn’t read the newspaper.  They certainly don’t subscribe to a daily delivered print edition.
    That may go the way of the milkman and the laundry man.  As for reading the paper online, get ready to pay for it.  The rise in mobile Internet devices and e-readers has caused all the newspaper and magazine publishers to form an alliance.  They have met with Apple, Amazon, and the major cell phone
    companies to develop a model for paid subscription services.

  1. The Book
    You say you will never give up the physical book that you hold in your hand and turn the literal pages  I said the same thing about downloading music from iTunes.  I wanted my hard copy CD.
    But I quickly changed my mind when I discovered that I could get albums for half the price without ever leaving home to get the latest music.  The same thing will happen with books.  You can browse a bookstore online and even read a preview chapter before you buy.  And the price is less than half that of a real book.  And think of the convenience!  Once you start flicking your fingers on the screen instead of the book, you find that you are lost in the story, can’t wait to see what happens next, and you forget that you’re holding a gadget instead of a book.


  1. The Land Line Telephone
    Unless you have a large family and make a lot of local calls, you don’t need it anymore.  Most people keep it simply because they’ve always had it.  But you are paying double charges for that extra service.  All the cell phone companies will let you call customers using the same cell provider for no charge against your minutes.


  1. Music
    This is one of the saddest parts of the change story.  The music industry is dying a slow death.  Not just because of illegal downloading.  It’s the lack of innovative new music being given a chance to get to the people who would like to hear it.  Greed and corruption is the problem.  The record labels and the radio conglomerates are simply self-destructing.  Over 40% of the music purchased today is “catalogue items,” meaning traditional music that the public is familiar with.  Older established artists.  This is also true on the live concert circuit.
    To explore this fascinating and disturbing topic further, check out the book, “Appetite for Self-Destruction” by Steve Knopper, and the video documentary, “Before the Music Dies.”

  1. Television Revenues
To … the networks are down dramatically.  Not just because of the economy.  People are watching TV and movies streamed from their computers.  And they’re playing games and doing lots of other things that take up the time that used to be spent watching TV.  Prime time shows have degenerated down to lower than the lowest common denominator.  Cable rates are skyrocketing and commercials run about every 4 minutes and 30
seconds.  I say good riddance to most of it.  It’s time for the cable companies to be put out of our misery.  Let the people choose what they want to watch online and through Netflix.

  1. The “Things” That You Own
    Many of the very possessions that we used to own are still in our lives, but we may not actually own them in the future.  They may simply reside in “the cloud.”  Today your computer has a hard drive and you store your pictures, music, movies, and documents.  Your software is on a CD or DVD, and you can always re-install it if need be.  But all of that is changing. 
Apple, Microsoft, and Google are all finishing up their latest “cloud services.”  That means that when you turn on a computer, the Internet will be built into the operating system.  So, Windows, Google, and the Mac OS will be tied straight into the Internet.  If you click an icon, it will open something in the
Internet cloud.  If you save something, it will be saved to the cloud.  And you may pay a monthly subscription fee to the cloud provider.  In this virtual world, you can access your music or your books, or your whatever from any laptop or handheld device.  That’s the good news.  But, will you actually own
any of this “stuff” or will it all be able to disappear at any moment in a big “Poof?”  Will most of the things in our lives be disposable and whimsical?  It makes you want to run to the closet and pull out that photo album, grab a
book from the shelf, or open up a CD case and pull out the insert.

  1. Joined Handwriting (Cursive Writing)
    Already gone in some schools who no longer teach “joined handwriting”
    because nearly everything is done now on computers or keyboards of some type (pun not intended).

  1. Privacy
If there ever was a concept that we can look back on nostalgically, it would be privacy.  That’s gone.  It’s been gone for a long time anyway.  There are cameras on the street, in most of the buildings, and even built into your computer and cell phone.
But you can be sure that 24/7, “They” know who you are and where you are, right down to the GPS coordinates, and the Google Street View.  If you buy something, your habit is put into a zillion profiles, and your ads will change to reflect those habits.
“They” will try to get you to buy something else.  Again and again and again.

 

All we will have left is that which can’t be changed…….are our “Memories”.

And some of us have already lost that!!!!

Wireless Patent Inventor from 1942‏

Do you remember movie King Kong ???

 


 

First, get beyond the first picture.

 Second, read the story – –

It all  started with a skin flick …

In 1933, a  beautiful, young Austrian woman took

off her  clothes for a movie director. She ran

through the woods, naked. She swam in a lake,

naked, pushing well beyond the social norms

of the  period.

                                   

The most popular  movie in 1933 was

King Kong. But everyone in  Hollywood

was talking about that scandalous movie

with the gorgeous, young Austrian  woman.

Louis B. Mayer, of the giant studio  MGM,

said she was the most beautiful woman in

the world. The film was banned practically

everywhere, which of course made it even

more popular and valuable. Mussolini

reportedly refused to sell his copy at any  price.

The star of the film, called  Ecstasy, was

Hedwig Kiesler. She said the secret of her  

beauty was “to stand there and look stupid.”

In reality, Kiesler was anything but stupid.

She  was a genius. She’d grown up as the

only child of a prominent Jewish banker.

She was a math prodigy. She excelled at

science. As she grew  older, she became

ruthless, using all the power her body and

mind gave her.

Between the sexual roles she played, her

tremendous beauty, and the power of her

intellect, Kiesler would confound the men in

her life, including her six husbands, two of

the most ruthless dictators of the 20th century,

and one of the greatest movie producers

in history.

Her beauty made her rich for a time.

She is said to have made – and  spent –

$30 million in her life. 

But her greatest accomplishment resulted

from her intellect, and her invention

continues to shape the world we live in today.

You see, this young Austrian starlet would

take one of the most valuable technologies

ever developed right from under Hitler’s nose.

After fleeing to America , she not only became

a major Hollywood star, her name sits on

one of the most important patents ever

granted by the U.S. Patent  Office.

Today, when you use your cell  phone or,

over the next few years, as you  experience

super-fast wireless Internet access

(via something called “long-term evolution”

or “LTE” technology), you’ll be using an extension

of the technology a 20- year-old actress first

conceived while sitting at dinner with Hitler.

At the time she made Ecstasy, Kiesler was

married to one of the richest men in  Austria,

Friedrich Mandl was Austria’s leading arms

maker. His firm would become a key supplier  

to the Nazis.

Mandl used his beautiful young wife as a

showpiece at important business dinners

with representatives of the Austrian, Italian,

and German fascist forces. One of Mandl’s

favorite topics at these gatherings, which

included meals with Hitler and Mussolini,

was the technology surrounding

radio-controlled  missiles and torpedoes.

Wireless weapons offered far greater ranges

than the wire-controlled alternatives that

prevailed at the time.

Kiesler sat through these dinners  

“looking stupid,” while absorbing everything

she heard.

As a Jew, Kiesler hated the Nazis.  

She abhorred her husband’s business ambitions.

Mandl responded to his willful wife by

imprisoning her in his castle,

Schloss  Schwarzenau. In 1937, she managed

to escape. She drugged her maid, Snuck out

of the castle wearing the maid’s clothes, and

sold her jewelry  to finance a trip to  London ..

                                  

(She got out just in time, for in 1938,

Germany annexed Austria.  The Nazis

seized Mandl’s factory (He was half Jewish).

Mandl fled to Brazil. Later, he became an

adviser to Argentina’s iconic populist

president, Juan Peron.)

In London, Kiesler arranged a meeting

with Louis B. Mayer.  She signed a long-term

contract with him,  becoming one of MGM’s

biggest stars. She  appeared in more than

20 films. She was a  co-star to Clark Gable,

Judy Garland, and even  Bob Hope.

Each of her first seven MGM movies was

a blockbuster.

But Kiesler cared far more about fighting

the Nazis than about making  movies.

At the height of her fame, 1942, she  developed

a new kind of communications system,

optimized for sending coded messages

that couldn’t be “jammed.” She was building

a system that would allow torpedoes and

guided bombs to  always reach their targets.

She was building a system to kill Nazis.

By the 1940s, both  the Nazis and the

Allied forces were using the kind of

single-frequency radio-controlled  technology

Kiesler’s ex-husband had been peddling.

The drawback of this technology was that

the enemy could find the appropriate

frequency and “jam” or intercept the signal,

thereby interfering with the missile’s intended

path.

Kiesler’s key innovation was to

“change the channel.” It was a way of encoding

a message across a broad area of the

wireless spectrum. If one part of the

spectrum was jammed, the message would

still get through on one of the other

frequencies being used. The  problem was,

she could not figure out how to synchronize

the frequency changes on both the receiver

and the transmitter. To solve the problem,

she turned to perhaps the world’s first  

techno-musician, George Anthiel.

Anthiel was an acquaintance of Kiesler who

achieved some notoriety for creating

intricate musical compositions. He

synchronized his melodies  across twelve

player pianos, producing stereophonic

sounds no one had ever heard before.

Kiesler incorporated Anthiel’s technology

for synchronizing his player pianos.  

Then, she was able to synchronize the

frequency changes between a weapon’s

receiver and its transmitter.

On August 11, 1942, U.S.   

Patent No. 2,292,387 was granted to Antheil

and  “Hedy Kiesler Markey”, which was

Kiesler’s married name at the time.

Most of you won’t recognize the name Kiesler.

And no one would remember the name

Hedy Markey. But it’s a fair bet than anyone

reading this newsletter of  a certain age

will remember one of the great  beauties

of Hollywood’s golden age ~Hedy  Lamarr !

That’s the name Louis  B. Mayer gave to

his prize actress. That’s the  name his

movie company made  famous.

                                                 

Meanwhile, almost no one knows

Hedwig Kiesler – aka Hedy  Lamarr –

was one of the great pioneers  of wireless

communications. Her technology was  

developed by the U.S. Navy, which has

used it ever since.

You’re probably using Lamarr’s  technology,

too. Her patent sits at the  foundation of

“spread spectrum technology,”  which you

use every day when you log on to a wi-fi

network or make calls with your

Bluetooth-enabled phone. It lies at the heart

of the massive investments being made

right now in  so-called fourth-generation

“LTE” wireless technology. This next

generation of cell phones and cell towers

will provide tremendous  increases to

wireless network speed and quality,  by

spreading wireless signals across the

entire available spectrum. This kind of

encoding is only possible using the kind

of frequency switching that Hedwig Kiesler

invented.

                                             

And now you know, “the rest of the story”

and here is a web site if you would like to learn more ….

amazing medical technology

Don’t Miss This One!
When will it be available in the USA?
This amazing medical technology, currently being developed in Israel, is a new approach to corrective medicine. It treats most of today’s surgical procedures (tumors, cancers, Parkinson’s, stroke, brain disorder, etc.) on an outpatient basis; then sends the patient home immediately afterward, with no recovery time. It is totally noninvasive, eliminating long hospital stays.

Man invents machine to convert plastic into oil…

Has English sub titles so you don’t need sound, however even though you don’t understand him speaking his voice carries a “feeling” of honesty and sincerity.

 
Why is this not being used everywhere?

Amazing information about a marvelous break-through in technology!!!

Why aren’t we doing this now????!

Another example of Japanese ingenuity and perseverance!

A GERMAN WONDERLAND

AMAZING…

There have been little clips about this place for the past few years, it is still not finished but is growing to that conclusion as they will soon run out of space.  A short review…. it was started by two brothers as a place to show their hobby, it started growing by leaps & bounds.

 

Soon they were joined by other ‘Model Railroad Clubs’ and other craftsmen.  Some were electricians, model makers, carpenters, computer programmers, their wives would stop by to see what they were doing and usually bring them a lunch.  One thing led to another, 3 of the ladies had worked at a bakery,  several visitors would ask if they had a snack bar. The idea was planted, some of the carpenters came and built a nice restaurant area for the bakery and a kitchen too. If the fresh coffee smell didn’t get you then the bakery definitely would.  This was about 5 years ago. One of the Breweries came and furnished all of the tables and chairs, serving counter, etc.  Their latest finished area is the airport.  Planes look like they are flying and landing.

Here’s something to keep you entertained for awhile.  Flight Radar.  It tracks every commercial flight, passenger or cargo, anywhere in the world.  

 

Just scroll through the map, and pick out a plane, any plane.  Put your curser over it, and left click ONCE.   A window will open up on the left, idenifying the plane, where it came from, where it’s headed, the speed, altitude, everything.  

 

Watch a plane land at an airport, and the little window will refresh every 10 seconds.  You’ll see the speed going 450… 350… 230…. 140…. 80..50….. 20….. 12…. 12… 12… and then the plane will disappear from the screen as it has pulled up at its ramp and stopped.  This works all over the world, too.  Zoom in or out, pick out a city and watch the planes landing there.  or, follow them across the ocean.  As I say, it will keep you busy for awhile.

This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology: GPS

 

 

View IMAGE0~1.GIF in slide show

A couple of weeks ago someone had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard.

When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.

Something to consider if you have a GPS – don’t put your home address in it.. Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.

MOBILE PHONES 
I never thought of this……

This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her mobile phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet… Etc…was stolen.
20 minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says ‘I received your text asking about our Pin number and I’ve replied a little while ago.’ When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text ‘hubby’ in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.

Moral of the lesson:
Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list.

Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc….

And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.

Also, when you’re being texted by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came fromthem. If you don’t reach them, be very careful about going places to meet ‘family and friends’ who text you.

Tires-No more Fix-a-flat

No more Fix-a-flat, no more air compressors, no more spare tires, no more auto jacks, no more tools rattling in the trunk. Will it reduce the price of cars? Will it reduce the cost of roadside service? Will some businesses go out of business?

Coming soon! They have been testing these for several years now.

Resilient Tech was developing them for the military.


Amazing new tires……………………

Michelin Tires… Absolutely SCARY looking…

Look for ’em in August.

These tires are made in South Carolina , USA .

SEE THROUGH TIRES

Radical new tire design by Michelin.

The next generation of tires.

They had a pair at the Philadelphia car show.

Yes, those are ‘spoke’ like connections to the inner part of the tire from the outside tread ‘wrap!’

The next picture shows how odd it looks in motion…

Makes you wonder how the ride feels doesn’t it?



These tires are airless and are scheduled to be out on the market very soon.

The bad news for law enforcement is that spike strips will not work on these.

Just think of the impact on existing technology:

A. No more air valves..
B. No more air compressors at gas stations…
C. No more repair kits..
D. No more flats…

These are actual pictures taken at the South Carolina plant of Michelin.
