  • 1. MARCH 20, 2010The light fantastic: Audio-visual technology in the cloud Claro Holographic Projection TV with speaker setup Gizmag - ClaroAfter the winter of 2010, the storm of the century has been transformed into a minor heat wave - Ibegin this new examiner column as the wearing of the Green - St. Patricks day dawns. Technology isbeginning to surpass the wildest visions of science fiction - it is my purpose to look behind the scenes ofthese amazing developments and provide insights into the theory and the technology itself ....theactual fabric of space time.This ubiquity of audio/visual technology in its 3G/4G networking glory has many phases. What is themost remarkable and useful A/V systems that you have experienced - please send me a description. Therole of software in this grand phenomenon will not be neglected....either.Pittsburgh has undergone a remarkable transformation over the decades and is showing signs ofbecoming a green community. As the dark cloud of industrial grit is cleansed from its sandstonechurches, libraries, and monuments - a bright green place with an honorable (if troubled past) hasemerged. This is especially true in the marketplace of ideas where communicating with others is the keyto success. Audio/Visual technologies are emerging on a daily basis - these developments are vital torealizing the full potential of what the millennial generation (also called Generation Green) know ascloud computing. The virtuality of cyberspace.empowers the tremendous efficiency and high quality ofcommunication devices; today social networking networks can utilize audio/visual in almost any form(live or recorded) from almost anywhere on-demand. This alone is a tremendous accomplishment - butis only the bottom line here.One organization that has greatly accelerated this potential is the 1400 member Pittsburgh TechnologyCouncil (PTC) which is helping Old Allegheny which hosted the Worlds G20 Summit to pay for theinfrastructure changes which make this green revolution so timely.....yet expensive. Recreating thevital industrial base of the Ohio Valley region is no mean feat but one can tune into the PTC Tech Viberadio program on KQV Am 1410 and learn about what is going on - Saturdays at 1 P.M...If there is to be an economic recovery worth talking about then these efforts and energies need tobecome highly focused. To help accomplish this the Pittsburgh Technology Council has founded -an Entrepreneur Resource Center designed to achieve success through collaboration, programming andexposure - coordinated with sales channels and marketing initiatives and funding available through theUrban Redevelopment Authority.
  • 2. Green Internet patterns and practices are providing the way to accomplish this; today. The recycling ofelectronic devices is a reality in most major appliance super stores. Community relations must beimproved if the potential of this great transformation is to be realized; especially in the vital area ofeconomic recovery. There is a need to develop community - idea-sharing. This can help to provide theinfrastructure for this. Planning resources are needed to keep regional manufacturers competitive in theglobal market. We need to advocate these issues to government and promote action. green technology - leverage strategic plans to present the region as an energy hub G20 conference - need for enlightened resource mgmt. funding sources - investor awareness - intensely competitive business environment software to produceEngineering concepts that utilize the quantum field and its nanotechnology - are now integral to allcomputers and their audio/visual networking capabilities. for collaboration - strategic planning research and development social networking resources and technology building community - personal introductions and roundtables Energy strategy for the green building industryHow ideas shape visualization rests squarely upon the ethics of using these technologies for economicrecovery - promoting their introduction into the marketplace. This is essential considering thediscreteness of nanoconvergence - nanomaterial’s, bioengineering, information systems and cognitivescience (psychology). The critical paradigms of sustainability; holistic health; and energy efficiencyunderwrite this realization - the realization of a bottom line which can reverse the present downwardspiral of economic stagnation and long term debt. People who live in glass houses should not throwstones is one adage that comes to mind.This quantum leap must be synchronized with open source education - those who will perform thework must understand the basic principles they will be using. It is an important point to rememberwhen considering nanoconvergent technology in the workplace - look before you leap.Has the storm caused us to pause for a moment of suspense - perhaps some insight from my own recentaudio/visual experience can help. This morning I watched the 1983 release - Koyaanisqati (Life out ofBalance - from the Hopi language) by Francis Ford Coppola after attending a heartwarming movie - TheLast Station about Tolstoyan society the night before. Changes as vast as the apocalyptic vision ofKoyaanisqati become expedient for survival or as sublime as the messianic one of The Last Train depict aserious contrast. What can help us keep it together in the immense journey of life and hopefully anchorour soul. The light fantastic does not have to be a vision of doom - this much generation green and itsmillennials are proving....even in the face of our worlds biblical proportions.The Hub - Mobile Infrastructure - Optical WIFI system and Human EcologyAs a student at Penn State University in the days of Jimmy Carter I experienced a rejection of my ideasand theories......little did they know - they were not my own. One thing I did not forget - the spirit ofcooperation in spite of criticism; could not deter me from seeking to get Mr. President to sign a billwhich was passed by the Congress in 3 separate administrations - The Rural Abandoned Mine Program -It eventually became the Superfund Project. Yesterday Congress passed a comprehensive Health Care
  • 3. Bill 219-212 in spite of massive campaigns to prevent its passage......health care needs rapiddevelopment of existing technologies.Real reclamation began within a year of the Presidents signing of the bill and its 35 cents a ton tax onCoal was more than adequate funding; yet our project had scarcely finished before the Treasury Dept.impounded our programs funds...and it wasnt until 2002 when Ed Rendell became the Pennsylvania’sGovernor and sued the Federal Government to recover the reclamation funds that recovery and healingof the land continued. The Superfund sites will receive the management that they require to completethe job of Environmental Protection. Costs may be a real question here; how would you solve this typeof geophysical information gathering operation?During this time I also experienced a profound conversion - to seek God emphatically in my life - nowtoday I can understand what it means where it is written - "Eye has not seen; neither has any ear heard -the things that God has prepared for those who love him. The power of light should be takenseriously....Here are laser powered photonic systems which may provide some insight into how thesesystems work.Here are a few new technologies which will greatly affect they way we live and work:The Wi-Fi connection in the HUB-Robeson Center at Penn State proves that networks in the future coulduse lighting systems to help transmit data (Images: Penn State). This virtual networking with in houseinfrastructure points to ambiance with environmental resources. University engineers have developed asystem where a high-powered laser diode transmits data by converting electricity into infraredlight, This wireless optical system offers one gigabit per second transmission. Is this an example ofHuman Ecology.Wireless Gigabit Alliance (WiGig) has announced the completion of its unified wireless specificationwhich provides data transmission rates of up to 7 gigabits per second – more than ten times that ofcurrent 802.11 Wi-Fi. “When we launched the WiGig Alliance in May, we announced our plan tocomplete the industry’s first unified 60 GHz specification by Q4 2009, and we are proud to deliver onthis promise to the industry,” said Dr. Ali Sadri, president and chairman of the Wireless Gigabit Alliance.“We’re rapidly paving the way for the introduction of the next generation of high? performance wirelessproducts – PCs, mobile handsets, TVs and displays, Blue ray disc players, digital cameras and much more.”Super symmetry is the paradigm of convergence - Mobile Infrastructure developments prove this.
  • 4. At present, Light Blue Optics has a lab-based demonstrator, which converts a standard composite videosignal into high-quality 2D holographic video, in real time. The hologram generation engine runs in acommercially available FPGA (field-programmable gate array) chip, whose design extends naturally tocheap mass production. Other processing platforms including low-power digital signal processing (DSP)ICs are also under development. Blue SCENAR Technology is available right now......the device had itslineage as part of the Russian Space Program led by Dr. Alexander Karasev who invented the SCENAR, orSelf-Controlled Energo-Neuro-Adaptive Regulation technology. Scenar has been aptly compared tothe TriCorder device of the entertainment medias STAR TREK program.Summary Results of 50,000 Cases in Russian Literature Percentage Success Rate by Category1. A device for monitoring, treating and alleviating non-specific disease, injury or handicap by supplyinglow-level electrical energy to the body system in a form that may reduce pain, edema and inflammationin a manner that allows the natural resources of that body to restore homeostasis more rapidly than if itwere left alone......(by) electrical action on the skin surface activating tissues in the "somatic andautonomous" nervous system...(leading to) the possibility of a therapeutic effect in addition tomediating pain by the production of endorphins. In simple terms Scenar Treatment is currentlypermitted to claim positive efficacy for pain relief and pain management for to use in all countries in theEuropean Union, and is a safe device.The fields of Integrative Medicine advocates SCENAR…..see this website.Building a Enterprise level Business Intelligence system has taken on added dimensions. Holography andPhotonics are converging rapidly with highly developed Virtual Reality Systems to enable technicaltraining in real-time without the hazard of real world consequences - thereby facilitating education andtraining. Its use in remote diagnosis and treatment is thought to be limited at present; due to lack ofexperience and professional level certification
  • 5. Scientists dont fully understand how consciousness works Physorg.comPetroleum has become obselete; audio/visual enthusiasts should be telling the story to your friends andcolleagues. The economic law of free market capitalism demands competition to control inflation andits greed. America is not a free market system or our economy would be in much better shape than itis. Waste not - want not! One on-line solution which is available now is - "Better Place delivers thenetwork and services that make an electric car affordable to buy, easy to use, and amazing to own.".Counterfeit intelligence agencies inform the public that nanotechnology is years away and not yetpractical......nothing could be further from the truth. Audio/Visual networking technologies have beenusing it for many years; sustainable energy technologies like wind, solar, wave and hydro are using it atan ever accelerating pace - yet Americas main stream economy is a decade away from implementation;Green Building Technologies hold the promise of 500 Billion dollars a year income - where are they;Internet technologies hold the promise of much more - yet according to a recent Pittsburgh Post"Gazette article;FCC (Federal Communications Commission) ignores its own study (Berkman) in plan for InternetFuture......"if open access is the key to how so many countries solve the problem of Internet Access andSpeed, it makes no sense to ignore it ". This phenomenon goes back to the Railroad Trust of "TheRobber Barons" which Buckminster Fuller decried in his book - Spaceship Earth; 40 years later his workwith the quanta is yielding technologic innovation on a global scale. As a man thinketh; it is written -perhaps most people just dont understand these things properly. Think globally - act locally."The main message to emerge from all these studies is that when it comes to mesoscopic scales,common wisdom has to be revised, i.e. the rules of the game concerning textbook electronics have tobe rewritten. From the more applied point-of-view this field constitutes the basis for future micro- andNano-electronics." Yuval Gefen - Dept. of Condensed Matter PhysicsHistory is revealed - like the layers of an onion being peeled. Keystone Research; in their 21st centuryeconomic development policy advocates that good jobs and strong industries are developed at home
  • 6. not by providing expensive subsidies to foreign industries. Developing new companies must be thefirst priority of local and state government - here in Pennsylvania. Audio Visual communication systemsare a logical candidate for this and their supporting nanotechnogies as well. Cloud Computing is anothermega-development area - consulting; implementation; conversion; training and general education areall global developments which require local presence. The failed strategy of the FCC and their NationalBroadband Plan for the future of the internet will need to be overcome; strategically. Convergence inthe fields of Quantum Computing, Holographic Systems, and Photonics is providing the tools andconcepts necessary for innovation - Laser technology and electrical power systems are anotherarea where development is mandated.I am watching the Charlie Rose show on PBS - he is using A/V teleconferencing technology to facilitatecollaboration for a series of Programs about The Human Brain - this installment is about Aging and theBrain. Aerobic exercise and intellectual activity help to overcome the symptoms of aging is oneconsensus of opinion which this group of experts reached. My research into what is termed QuantumConsciousness agrees with this prognosis as well - QC is problematic to say the least;So far, no classical theories can explain consciousness in the brain. In light of this lack of understanding,some researchers suggest that quantum mechanics may play a significant role in the workings of themind and the brain. Quantum consciousness theories have always been controversial, and now a recentstudy has undercut one more component of these proposals.Wi-Fi Connection and the potential of Audio/Visual Mi-FiThanks to Verizon and Novatel Wireless for developing the MiFi 2200 Mobile Intelligent HotspotIt sounds like a nursery rhyme - come and Wi-Fi - I got the MiFi for my 5; but this technology is notdesigned only for the simple minded but is complex adaptive; a true multi-facetedsystem. Infrastructure and Software Platform Architecture are going to need careful considerationbefore implementing - planning is a must. The new electronics have created Cloud Computing andrealized a new concept -Ubiquity - WiFi is the fabric of the cloud. The key to utilizing this technology isto count the cost of what you already have and decide where you want to go - or need to go in thefuture; even today.Pittsburgh was one of the first major cities to adopt the cloud as a service to its visitors and citizens; thisshows that people here are interested in technologic innovations - in the marketplace. The region isalso becoming a member of the green cities PERMACULTURE phenomenon - which will fulfill its culturalhistory in a practical way......the garden party and the building trades workers will co-exist in an aura ofcooperation and commonality. Audio/Visual Technologies are hierarchical and admit to the samegimmickry and collusion as the rest of the marketplace with one vital difference - they are an integralpart of the communications technology now reaching their full development potential; evaluating themas part of green tech is important as well.
  • 7. The WebCam, Texting, VoiceIP, and file sharing have given Teleconferencing an aspect of LiveCollaboration - messaging from anywhere at virtually anytime - in virtually any mime format; the mergerof wireless and Bluetooth capabilities make Mobile Networks ubiquitous. This quality enables livecommunications and interactivity from remote areas - but not anywhere; of course (you may need asatellite uplink to complete the teleconferencing; and the cloud grows daily and its data tsunami too.Data throughput is an important aspect of Cloud Computing NetworksIts estimated that a single smart phone generates 10 times the volume of data traffic than aconventional cell phone while a laptop generates a whopping 1,300 times more. A new report from Cisco (now doing its own market research and analysis because it can), forecaststhat mobile data traffic will double every year through 2014, increasing 39 times between 2009 and2014, reaching 3.6 exabytes per month by 2014. And over 60 percent of the world’s mobile data traffic,they say, will be IP-based video.Wii - From Wikipedia Nintendo Wii Gaming System with Wii Sports… see this video (see Appendix)The Wii (????, pronounced /?wi?/, like the pronoun we) is a home video game console released by Nintendo. As aseventh-generation console......as of March 2010, the Wii leads the generation over the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360in worldwide sales, in December 2009 broke the record for best-selling console in a single month in the UnitedStates.Virtual Reality and Photonics –the new electronicsvirtual reality systemA computer-based system that interacts with the user to create a three-dimensional, artificiallysimulated world that appears "real. Through the use of head-mounted displays, wraparound screens,audio synthesizers and computerized gloves with sensors, the user can manipulate his/her surroundingsusing voice commands, head movements, finger pointing and other natural gestures; it also is calledcyberspace.Check this University of Sheffield Virtual Reality Center.
  • 8. Virtual Ambiance – ethereal generation – energy flow RCAs Airenergy charger is a virtual energyHarvestor but works remotely providing electronic energy converted from infrared power sources tocellphones and other smart devices. PDC innovations continue and are accelerating daily - as 3G/4Gnetworks are empowered; Fiber Optic technology is beginning to reach its full potential this e factor(Exabyte) is what global networking faces. Information intelligence is a systems operation in which InfoChannels use this new unified protocol and electronic paradigms are developed to conserve bandwidthand energy usage. Then green IT will be a reality. Systems are the children of this information age andas the millennials take the stage of human development their importance in maintaining the largeeconomic infrastructure will increase dramatically.What does the average PDC cellphone include as main features........power management; video and stillcamera; memory and file storage monitoring; IP smart phone; text messaging; application servicessynchronization with holographic projection capabilities, IT help desk connectivity w/ Mobile Webcollaboration capabilities. All this at ones fingertips - programmable webcams that support networkequipment?.....that may be needed for large scale projects. Mobile Networks utilize the 802.1 - 802.11nor whatever.....the unified communications protocol will eliminate a lot of guess work - one to many;one to one; many to one; many to many such that troubleshooting your networks A/V capabilities willbecome the "hidden manna"; this cloud has a silver lining [fabric} - get it.AdvertisementSlideshow: Ambience - Cloud Computing and Wi-Fi peripheralsSlideshow: Ambience - Cloud Computing and Wi-Fi peripheralsThe Power of Green TechnologySolar power is efficient for everyday use - big changes are taking place in the economics of scale aspectof the global market place - In Australia for example Technique Solars expansion into partnership withpublic utilities has provided the capital for rapid expansion of an important new technology. Considerthat audio/visual cyberspace is a parallel development to eco-friendly green technology; now beginninga powerful across the board convergence with it. Another example of public - private partnershiptransforming infrastructure to ultra-clean and efficient technologies is ‘Better Place - an Electric car

In one sense this reality has not changed - in another sense; the information ageand communications in the global village have leveled the playing field especially in high techindustries. A local company - Calgon Carbon Corporation, headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, isa global leader in services and solutions for making water and air safer and cleaner. As the worldsleader in activated carbon technology and with ultraviolet light disinfection and oxidation expertise,Calgon Carbon Corporation has pioneered leading-edge purification systems for drinking water,wastewater, odor control, pollution abatement, and a variety of industrial and commercialmanufacturing processes. Pittsburgh has a mandate to upgrade its waste water collection system - thetraditional shovel and dump truck approach is prohibitively expense; ultra filters and companies likeCalgon hold the key to correct the problems and do so without digging up the city again.Green Building Technologies are also analytic; elimination of negative energy and energy technologies isboth efficient and effective in maintaining long term healthy living conditions for your family andcommunity as well. Here is one from EXTECH which the Green Building Industry recommends as anassessment project.EMF/ELF Meter - Detect and measures EMF - Electro-Magnetic Field | EMI - Electro-Magnetic

With the CellSensor you will be able to detect and the measureelectromagnetic fields - to find sources to avoid or the cause of interference.Audio/Visual Hardware is becoming more efficient energy wise and more powerful in terms of capability;making a remote workplace like the home - an economical and effective choice for conservation. In theworkplace energy efficiency and optic resolution have made a quantum leap.....inquire within.AdvertisementSlideshow: dimensions of performance are changing dramaticallySlideshow: Let the light shine - what do we think we knowLet your light shine - a good friday message on holography4 leaf clovers are extremely rare; so it takes patience and time to find one. Beginning my Examinercolumn on St. Patricks Day has proven to be fortuitous. It is written in the Book of Genesis - man ismade in Gods image; after his likeness the human family is formed...so the Bible says and in thisPassover/Easter season - 2010 (the earliest for Easter in a 250 year time cycle) a resemblance whichmany are taking seriously. Today is good friday - a solemn day to remember; Jesus is quoted asadmonishing - be children of the light and even states in the gospel of John that: God is light.
  • 11. My hometown of Pittsburgh is known as a leader in business and technology innovations; especiallywhere the cutting edge is concerned....and of course this is true of many other places in the world -many of whom are partners with corporate entities in this area. Holography is no exception.The Future Lies in Holography"PITTSBURGH -- Small and round, it provides enjoyable, crackle-free, crystal-clear sound, and it set off anacoustic revolution 25 years ago: the first pop CD to be made from Bayer Material Sciences (BMS) high-tech material Makrolon([R]) polycarbonate (PC) was ABBAs album "The Visitors" in 1982. The compactdisc produced the songs of the Swedish cult band in a sound quality that was totally new at the time, sothat this shiny object totally changed the international music industry.............Researchers at BMS arealready working with companies such as InPhase Technologies of Colorado on holographic storagemedia (manufacturing partner: Maxell) which are set to continue the revolution in digital data discs. Thenew disc type - called Tapestry(TM) - has a capacity of 300 gigabytes and is currently in its test phase.Unlike a conventional CD or DVD, data is no longer written and read bit by bit, but stored in the form ofholograms, i.e., in entire data blocks all at once. This means that the read/write process can beaccelerated many times over.""Digital in-line holography with numerical reconstruction has been developed into a new tool,specifically for biological applications, that routinely achieves both lateral and depth resolution, at leastat the micron level, in three-dimensional imaging. The experimental and numerical procedures havebeen incorporated into a program package with a very fast reconstruction algorithm that is now capableof real-time reconstruction."Shroud of Turin (from Garden Tomb) a lens to visualize the world A pure and clean energy movementAll you need to project a 3D holographic image:The TransScreen™ 3D holographic projection screenYour high contrast video shot against a black backgroundYour display area with low to medium ambient lightYour projector yielding 2000 ANSI lumens or moreTangible hologram projector - 06 Aug 2009
  • 12. Researchers at the University of Tokyo have developed a holographic projector that displays three-dimensional virtual objectsyou can feel with your bare hands. Compare this technology with Wii and Microsoft Surface and we have another superb toolfor our audio/visual toolkits.Holographic audio/visual communications are actually highly developed - many developments are being perfectedcurrently. The use of light as correspondence for representation needs interpretation and study - as Hillel aptly stated;"The world stands on three foundations - on study; on service and on benevolence." c/o Bnai Brith Hillel FoundationThe new metaphysics and its Quantum Field Theory depends upon interpretation of physical phenomena - here are two: Interferometric microscopies - from Wikipedia - see also Broadband Beam SamplerThe hologram keeps the information on the amplitude and phase of the field. Several holograms maykeep information about the same distribution of light, emitted to various directions.Dynamic holography - from Wikipedia as wellIn static holography, recording, developing and reconstructing occur sequentially and a permanenthologram is produced. There also exist holographic materials which do not need the developing processand can record a hologram in a very short time. This allows one to use holography to perform somesimple operations in an all-optical way. Examples of applications of such real-time holograms includephase-conjugate mirrors ("time-reversal" of light), optical cache memories, image processing (patternrecognition of time-varying images), and optical computing.An upcoming article will present an acoustic lens which is designed to improve ultrasound and materialsscience instrumentation. These powerful implications also serve to magnify a biblical prophecy - theyshall beat their swords into plowshares - their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not more lift upsword against nation - neither shall man learn to make war any more."Putting it all together - what is your green energy idea?This is my seventh article - what has been presented........audio visual technologies are an enigma to thecommon man. First of all they are far more advanced than science will admit to and this is because ofconfusion concerning the actual theory of their operation. As this moment of history becomes moremeaningful to the global village - these advancements are seen in a sublime light: Neuropathic - Scenar Therapy (using biorhythm feedback) Wi-Fi communications - cloud computings silver lining Green Energy Technologies - on a global scale Ambience - energy conversion/generation
  • 13.  Holography - 3d touch screens - 2D projections Economic Stimulus using private - public partnership networking nanoconversion - new features for 3G/4G unified networksThe Pittsburgh region and Pennsylvania in general are blessed with the planning infrastructureto facilitate this kind of economic development. The Pgh Business Times reports that Idea Forge andDigital Greenhouse have landed state of Pennsylvania Community and Economic Development fundsto help local entrepreneurs to plan for this hoped for recovery. Here are a few well developed ideasfrom Pure Energy Systems and its Congress. As the American nation andits Appalachian region mourns the loss of coalminers in yet another disaster - a moratorium on ideasand concepts of science is in order.....because obviously one side of this argument is right and the otherseriously wrong. There is incredible potential for right action.The spirit exhorts us to godliness and rebukes the seven deadly sins that plague all earthly enterprises -including social networking - be conscientious in how you use these powerful audio/visual tools andcommunication skills; some would exploit human weakness to temptations of the flesh in order tofleece the unsuspecting.....overcome these impulses and use these technologies for the good of allyourself included. Send me your idea for a green energy project and I will present it as an examinerarticle.As the millennial generation takes center stageAs the McNeil Report on PBS aptly identified and Morley Safer of 60 minutes proclaimed - themillennials are taking center stage in history - a positive admonition like good and faithful servant caneasily be applied - especially in their response to the global economic and ecologic crisis. On daily basisnew and incredibly amazing technologies are unveiled - ones that utilize the abundant resourcesavailable to everyone - the oceanic realms and the daily sunshine which lights everyones path in ourdiurnal world. Word up - green energy; as even Word Girl would agree; is a quality of conceptualityand design. Human flight and mobility are two objectives of people since ancient times - here are twogiant steps that are happening today.Gizmag (gizmag.com) is an excellent source for info about these new technologies. The Solar ImpulseHB SIA fulfilled its moniker of solar powered airplane on its maiden flight over Payerne, Switzerland. Yuji
  • 14. Fujimura and his concept Electric Bike Version 2 has proven that convergence is the rule not theexception - his design pictured above includes a charging station for electronic equipment - making theowner of the bicycle a mobile audio/visual studio on the scale of the common man. New conceptsrequire new designs - often. This is a long term development scenario - looking at the explosive growth of 3G/4G technologies onething becomes evident - all of the major players in the PDC/mobile phone market are offering greatadvancements in functionality - across the board; yet there is little difference in these features - why isthis. To this observer the reason must lie behind the scenes at the research and developmentlevel......and how can a global phenomenon like this be so focused. Think globally - act locally; theunified concept of quantum physics is responsible for the quality of this convergence - no doubt.Realization of the economic benefits - especially on a large scale; is a matter of planning, strategy,political support and an intangible quality of desire - which in a community results in dedication to thepurpose of success. My hometown of Pittsburgh which is a cornerstone of many developing industrieshas in recent times failed to realize the benefits from important technologies developed in this region:Skybus......which was realized by the state of California as B.A.R.T. (Bay Area Rapid Transit) was a majordevelopment effort of the public/private partnership between Westinghouse and local government. Anexperiment in mass transportation - it was a physical success but never allowed to develop beyond that.Continuous Caster......an essential improvement in the steel making process - 80% more efficient than allof the other steel making processes combined. It was sold to China....for a swan song.Silicon Wafer Solar Power Generation.....another Westinghouse project in partnership with the federalgovernment which is only now 10-15 years later being developed on a large scale.There are many more of course.....some even more important perhaps that these but they point to anestablishment of 19th century technologies - which even in their most modern instance cannot claim tomeet the demands of 21st ecologic and economic problems. One idea which has developed through thefailure of the ominous old boys network mindset is the Digital Greenhouse and Idea Factory producedthrough a trust which has worked consistently since the earliest dawn of the American Revolution - inthe spirit of entrepreneurship which Benjamin Franklin exemplified. Economic Recovery in a countrylike the United States is not a mean feat.....it will require change from the very ground work ofsociety.....even unto its highest branches. It will also require tough decision making concerning obsoletetechnology and redundant financial structures......reenergizing America is a 500 billion dollaropportunity........across the board.
  • 15. MAC vs. PC; in general things mix - Pittsburgh Universities and the global villageThe new second law of thermodynamics states - In general things mix.One thing that the developments in computing over the two decades which history deems - themillennium; is that the new 2nd Law of Thermodynamics has been proven - ubiquitously. A new theoryof electronics is being written - but not into textbooks; rather in the global marketplace ofideas. Originally the Apple Macintosh was the cornerstones along in spite of its competitor the so-calledmicro-computer which Microsoft utilized to more fully develop the Xerox companys Graphic UserInterface using Berkleys nebulous operating system now called Windows. Today nearly 3 decades later- who could have predicted the results?Kyoto Institute of Technology introduced a new photovoltaic cell that is capable of generating electricitynot only from visible light, but from ultraviolet and infrared light as well. Quantum films (using quantumdots) can image scenes with more pixel resolution, according to their inventors, InVisage Inc., offeringfour-times better sensitivity for ultra-high resolution sensors that are cheaper to manufacture.Apple’s new iPad has already generated an impressive inventory of accessories - this provides Mac userswith a dedicated wireless platform for the new unified protocol. The itab is sitting there waiting to helprun through a song with you, providing a prompt or helping you learn - the iTab songbook is aperformance tool.The Digital Greenhouse and its association with the Pittsburgh Technology Center are the product ofhigh level collaboration between the elite universities of the world......the University of Pittsburgh andCarnegie Mellon University have continued a partnership which spans many decades but today isbecome a virtual global campus with campus outreaches on many continents......this effort is focused inthe Pittsburgh area on the medical profession and the implementation of the Human Genome Projectand the development of bioinformatics to give it commutative expressivity. However this globaldevelopment has also spawned the advent of bioethics to challenge many of its Genetic Engineeringproducts - it has also failed to produce economic recovery locally.
  • 16. Using your Audio/Visual tools to communicateThe communication possibilities today are absolutely without measure - it is possible to provide eyewitness type communications from virtually anywhere and in almost any format required. Once againthe Pittsburgh community is making a lasting impression - mainly on the stage of public/privatepartnership in venture capitalism. Innovation Works according to Tech Vibe radio on KQV 1410 AM -has brought nearly 3/4 of a billion dollars to the Pittsburgh region; much of it going into the industrialmobile robotic field. This is servo-mechanical systems thinking at its very best.....global economicdevelopment in robotics shows not signs of subsiding. However there is a strict division when applyingthese concepts and ideas to living systems where purpose is found - here is an on-line book which dealsin much more depth with these age-old ideas.HTC alternative – here is an excellent review of one aspect of choice in the 3G/4G networking tools.HTC Desire vs. Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 iPad Launch PartyHere is an example of this technology – the mobile web; which is available off the shelf and free ofcharge via Windows Live literally from a walk through the woods straight onto the internet.......To save aspecial natural sanctuary where people can walk their dogs and enjoy the joy of a natural habitat at anytime of the year.....is very important - that is why American Indian Ethics require that each of us thinksof seven generations when we make decisions about Mother Earth and her children.I am not a reactionary; so as a progressive I am sorry to learn that Westinghouse is being revived but notas the cutting edge technology provider that it’s history recounts but as a servant to the fossil fuelindustry in its interfacing with Power Utility Industries.

Theouter side of the cornea must moisten with tear fluids and allow the eyelid to slide across withoutfriction. Any deviation from these specifications would decrease the effectiveness of the cornea, impairsight, and perhaps require a new prosthesis after a short time.Donor corneas are extremely rare, but for 40,000 people in Europe corneal transplantation from donorsoffer the only hope of addressing blindness in one or both eyes. That was, until Dr. Joachim Storsberg ofthe Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP in Potsdam-Golm created the first artificialcornea, which has been successfully trialed and has been in use now since 2009.

Just as a stone at the base of a foothill can resemble inminiature the mountain from which it originally tumbled down, so are fractals self-similar whether onelooks at them from close up or very far away.Fractals Ambient Instrumentals is a millennium contribution to music theory - Audio DoodleHello and Welcome - EnigmaOne of the major themes of this author is holistic medicine and its relationship to clinical practice -(plural insularity and holism (homeostasis)); miracles not withstanding!Researchers regenerate nerve connections after spinal injury By Darren Quick August 8, 2010PTEN - mTOR dynamic ontogeny of the nervous system - complex adaptive systemChristopher and Dana Reeves Foundation has announced a major breakthrough - about two percent ofAmericans – more than six million people – have some form of paralysis resulting from spinal cord injury,which is due primarily to the interruption of connections between the brain and spinal cord.

Most likelywind turbines and fuel cells will be the dominant grid connected distributed generators. This paperproposes a novel integration of a doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) and a fuel cell. With theproposed scheme, it is possible to inject power from a DC power source like a fuel cell into the AC gridwithout using an expensive inverter. The fuel cell is connected across the DC link of the back-back

This is achieved by a low voltageDC link which also results in considerable savings. Dynamic models of DFIG and fuel cell have beenderived which are used to simulate the proposed integrated system. Vector control schemes to operatethe DFIG both as a power source and as an active filter compensating for harmful harmonics generatedby non-linear loads are described. It has been shown that active and reactive power generated can becontrolled. Power factor correction and reactive power control can also be achieved. Complete systemhas been simulated in Matlab/Simulink. Simulation results showing interaction of DFIG and fuel cell withthe AC grid have been presented. Power flow between these systems has been analyzedNew-catalyst-makes-electrolyzers-more-efficientAlthough wave power is attracting a lot of attention as a renewable energy source, it is possible togenerate power from still water. All you need is electrolyzers, which separates water into its twocomponents, hydrogen and oxygen, then feeds them into a fuel cell. Electrolyzers, however, requirecatalysts to get the process rolling. While hydrogen production catalysts aren’t much of a problem, theplatinum catalysts used for oxygen production are expensive, don’t last very long, and the creation ofthem incorporates toxic chemicals. This Monday, however, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology(MIT) announced the development of a new oxygen production catalyst that is 200 percent moreefficient than platinum. The nickel-borate-based catalyst has been licensed to Sun Catalytix, which ishoping to be producing safe, super-efficient electrolyzers within two years.What is a fractal? Here are some definitions:1) A shape that can be repeatedly subdivided into parts, each of which is a smaller copy of the whole.Fractals are generally self-similar and independent of scale.2) A fractal is a geometric object which is rough or irregular on all scales of length, and so which appearsto be broken up in a radical way. Some of the best examples can be divided into parts, each of which issimilar to the original object. Fractals are said to possess infinite detail, and they may actually have aself-similar structure that occurs at different levels of magnification.3) A term coined by Benoit Mandelbrot in 1975 to refer to items with fractional dimensions as opposedto the integer dimensions such as 1, 2 and 3 associated with length, area and volume. This term is oftenused to refer to a structure bearing statistically similar details over a wide range of scales. Fractalsdescribe shapes that are "self-similar" -- that is, shapes that look the same at different magnifications.To create a fractal, you start with a simple shape and duplicate it successively according to a set of fixedrules. Oddly enough, such a simple formula for creating shapes can produce very complex structures,some of which have a striking resemblance to objects that appear in the real world.4) Fractals share holographic properties.5) A geometric shape or pattern that is self-similar and has fractional dimensions. Natural phenomenasuch as the formation of snowflakes, clouds, mountain ranges, and landscapes involve patterns. Theirpictorial representations are fractals and are usually generated by computers. They are repeated atevery scale and so cannot be represented by classical geometry. Fractals have statistical self-similarity atall resolutions and is generated by an infinitely recursive process. An algorithm, or shape, characterized

When looking at the same cloud some see flowers, others may see bunnies,or Viking warlords frolicking in the snow. Each person sees something different. What do you see?the enigma of metaphysics - directly engineering the ambient potential of the vacuumAdding Whittakers engineer-able hidden variable theory to classical electro-magnetics, quantummechanics, and general relativity produces supersets of each discipline. These supersets are joined bythe common Whittaker subset, producing a unified field theory that is engineer-able and tested.Examples of fractal properties - From Quantum Theory Made Easy (part one):Quantum physics"....shows that we cannot decompose the world into independently existing smallest units. As wepenetrate into matter, nature does not show us any isolated basic building blocks, but rather appearsas a complicated web of relations between the various parts of the whole. These relations alwaysinclude the observer in an essential way."Chaos theory“The fractal geometry of chaos theory offers a curious picture of wholeness, rather than sheer disorderor perfectly crafted design -- something between symmetry and anarchy: broken symmetry. Thesefractals are like the fragments of a shattered hologram. If a hologram should be broken into pieces, anapproximation of the whole picture could still be seen in each of its many shards. Woolley suggests thatthe universe is like the many fragments of a shattered hologram, and scientists can discover secrets ofthe whole "enfolded" universe by examining these fractured crystals that are "unfolded" andconsequently accessible to our investigation. Holography, like fractal geometry, is of great practicalvalue in the compressing and decompressing of digital data and images.Lets take a moment to regroup. There should be some sense of non-local connection emerging hereentangling Dalis illusions, fractals, spirals, holograms, compactions dimensions, encoding, symmetry,asymmetry, broken symmetry, stereograms, and all those ideas yet to materialize. Chaos puts ourfragmented world back together as a crystal of broken symmetries with many facets -- as fractals . Wemust come to appreciate the mystery of the diamond mind, which attains its true beauty only when it isbroken by the hand of an artist. These swirling images of the whole raise us to dizzying heights, but thewholeness we experience is not the limitless expanse of the universe, but a passageway throughcreation in which we also have a hand to play.From Fractals In Nature:Most mathematics that we study in school is old knowledge. Around 300 B.C. a mathematician by thename of Euclid organized the geometry we have been studying this year in class. You can thank him forall the beautiful postulate and theorems that we now have in our math toolboxes. Much of fractalgeometry, however, is new knowledge. Fractal geometry and chaos theory are providing us with a newway to describe the world. Many objects in nature arent formed of Euclid’s squares or triangles, but ofmore complicated geometric figures. Many natural objects - ferns, clouds, seashells - are shaped like
  • 36. fractals. Fractal geometry is a new language used to describe, model and analyze complex forms foundin nature. Chaos science uses this new fractal geometry.How it all works:The basic technique of these fractals can actually be explained without resorting to confusingmathematical equations and jargon. Its rather simple, really.First, give every point on the screen a unique number. Now take that number and stick it into a formula;youll get a result from the formula. Take that result and stick it back into the formula. Keep doing thisand watch what happens to the numbers you get. Color each point based on what happens.Thats it. Really—thats it. Now, with most formulas it probably wont do much of interest, but with theformulas used in fractal creation, some interesting things happen. Sometimes the numbers you get byfeeding the results of a formula back into the formula (iterating) explode into enormous numbers, thatjust keep getting bigger and bigger. Those points get colored one way. Other times, the numbers "homein" on a number, getting closer and closer to it. They get colored a different way.The interesting thing—and the reason fractals work at all—is that sometimes, just a tiny little change inthe number you start with can completely change what happens as you keep iterating the number. Andthe boundary between numbers that explode and numbers that home in is complicated and twisted—its the shape of the fractal.The enormous task at hand:Calculating fractals this way involves a lot of work. A small fractal image—perhaps only 640x480—contains over 300,000 points. Each of those points may require running a number through the fractalformula more than 1,000 times. This means the formula has to be computed more than three hundredmillion times. And thats a mild example. Extreme images (such as poster-size fractals) can involve morethan one trillion calculations. Fortunately for the impatient among us, modern computers are fastenough to do the job in a few minutes. Large fractals might take hours or days, but exploring fractals hasnever been easier.Spray-on film turns windows into solar panelsImagine if all the windows of a building, and perhaps even all its exterior walls, could be put to use assolar collectors.

The reformation ofthe church occurred following the failure of the crusades and its domination by the social elite; 500years ago. Well Paul of Tarsus admonished The Romans - "Faith comes through hearing and hearing bythe word of God." Today the failure of this war on terror is evident - it proves the theory asserted inthe Canadian documentary, The Corporation, that the "personality profile" of a corporation is akin toa psychopath’s, and in this alleged case, an intensely predatory and depraved one (quoted fromJeremy Scahill).

Ephemeral signifies lasting only a short time."Things that lack substance and things that dont last very long (duration) have an inimical relationship inthe 4th dimension....their properties provide a conceptual foundation for the high abstractions ofquantum mechanics and its Theory of Everything.....scripture defines this relationship in the bookof Hebrews 11:3:New International Version “By faith we understand that the universe was formed at Gods command, sothat what is seen was not made out of what was visible.”New Living Translation – “By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at Gods command,that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.”The ‘mind’s eye’ is an idea of value which folklore provides – “Ethereal, ephemeral, a bit abstract andfaintly disturbing, a length of rope, floating, caught in suspension, between the depths of the water*and the reflection of the clouds; ethereal and ephemeral are two words I easily confuse, but it doesn’tmatter here, either will do.” Fractal geometry can handle these perceptions - one historic example is"How long is the Coast of England" - the question becomes "who weighs the anchor for your soul".The ancient greeks considered Aether (classical element), a concept, historically, used in science (as amedium) and in philosophy (as a substance)

Thorium is a relatively safe nuclear fuel - known about for a decade before the advent of reactorswhich could produce plutonium. Thorium is a naturally-occurring, slightly radioactive metal discoveredin 1828 by the Swedish chemist Jons Jakob Berzelius, who named it after Thor, the Norse god of thunder.It is found in small amounts in most rocks and soils, where it is about three times more abundant thanuranium. Soil commonly contains an average of around 6 parts per million (ppm) of thorium. Thorium-232 (Th-232) decays very slowly (its half-life is about three times the age of the Earth) but other thoriumisotopes occur in its and in uraniums decay chains. Most of these are short-lived and hence much moreradioactive than Th-232, though on a mass basis they are negligible.The Generation Green program has a junior level companion developing in various communitiesthroughout the world....Pennsylvania is one which is promoting it as an environmental educationalternative.

Analyzing shapes that involve dimensions that cannot be seen in a conventional sense in the physicalworld is extremely abstract - yet important to perfecting the technologic world which already exists. Inaddition to the three dimensions of length, width and depth found in a three-dimensional shape, thescientists will explore shapes that involve other dimensions. For example, the space-time described byEinsteins Theory of Relativity has four dimensions - the three spatial dimensions, plus time. Stringtheorists believe that the universe is made up of additional hidden dimensions that cannot be seen.Professor Cortis colleague on the project, Dr Tom Coates, has created a computer modeling programmethat should enable the researchers to pinpoint the basic building blocks for these multi-dimensionalshapes from a pool of hundreds of millions of shapes. The researchers will be using this programme toidentify shapes that can be defined by algebraic equations and that cannot be divided any further. Theydo not yet know how many such shapes there might be. The researchers calculate that there are around500 million shapes that can be defined algebraically in four dimensions and they anticipate that they willfind a few thousand building blocks from which all these shapes are made.Search engine based headlines include - Periodic table of shapes to give a new dimension to math (w/ Video)An excerpt from Science Daily - solar power fulfills the spatial dimensionality constraint - any surfacecan become ambient.

His older brother was a greatcomfort to him during this ordeal; so around Memorial Day I headed to California to celebrate his 89thbirthday......a very interesting trip because my daughter completed her Doctoral Thesis at Stanford inPhilosophy on the timely subject of Distributive Justice. My uncle shared with me an excellent book -Generations - The history of Americas Future 1584 - 2069 by William Strauss and Neil HoweThis book provided the vital missing link (what a 1960s rock group The Moody Blues termed Days ofFuture Past) which my investigation of history and the millennia needed. Generational Lifecycles occurin a repeating pattern from one Constellational Era to the next - endowing humanity with spiritual andpsychological resources in order to receive the blessing of awakenings which over decades becomesocial crisis’s which life confronts mankind with. In spite of the fact that many seem ignorant of theircommonality - it proves categorically what is written about our ancient forefather Noah; in that as thesingular progenitor of the human family - he was perfect in his generations.

William Pitt - the younger Credits: amazing grace Video: swarmanoid robotsOne point which I am happy to interject to supplement the vital theories and historic insight provided byStrauss and Howe is that Americas political climate has relied heavily upon the third party much likeEngland.....such that the youthful and rising generation which inherited the worldwide internet and itsglobal village instead of being termed 13ers (because they are the 13th since 1774) but rather shouldbe called Generation Green in honor of their amazing ability to overcome ethnic and culturaldifferences for the greatest purpose of all; to save our shrinking world from ecologic destruction. Mygeneration called Boomers did not accomplish this - but they inherited the ground work(infrastructure) which would later be implemented - the advent of nanotechnology as Green is also aresult of this truly global effort. Environmental advocacy; international cooperation and high qualitycommunication of the real issues have provided the vital difference. Whoever predicted it.....Greencities - sustainable technology - renewable energy available to one and all...if we only will!The millennials have an even more awesome task before them - because in spite of this perfectlyamazing potential there is something in this world that says no and works not for the good of all but forits destruction. To be fair part of this chaotic reality is the way in which life was created and issustained....the sun is not necessarily an ORB which is perfectly stabile. Our quickly developinginformation age is providing predictions of coming trouble with the sun which seem in line with twoother prophecies; one of ancient lineage in various parts of the bible and one from the Mayanastronomers of a millennia past whose measurements of universal dynamics give us the realization of a365 and 1/4 day calendar year instead of the 360 day one previous to it. Quite a fudge factor after1000s of years. Time eonic is coming of age also and there is scarcely little insights save for HolyScripture and monastic (priestly) traditions in diverse cultures and generational eras.

The idea that Americais on course and under budget is ridiculous.....we are so far off course that it is reasonable to look forother accommodations. And why is this - power and energy are two physical entities which correspondperfectly both theoretically and in practice. Yet our constitutional government and its deviant elitehave inexorably committed the Western World to a course where power is the control of intellectualcapital and energy is burning up the earths resources as if we were on a collision course with oblivion.Many gifted commentators and observers worldwide have condemned this reprobate and diabolicalorder - yet even with enlightened advocacy; timely and effective intercession and heartfelt prayer andtrue godly charity this condition gets worse every day - it even accelerates. And just like a person witha deadly disease - treatment must begin if the death or complete debility of the patient is to beovercome. Unfortunately our green economy and its ambiance is nothing more than a facade - moreteenagers are using its ultimate technology to set up their hasty pudding than ever before - friends timehas run out on our misbegotten ways.

The 21st Century Conservation Service Corps Advisory Committee (21CSCAC) is a discretionary federal advisory committee established by the Departments of Interior, Agriculture, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Council on Environmental Quality. Here are Projects design ideas for conservation. The initiative includes: Environmental Education - students and teachers Recreation programs, hiking, fishing, wildlife Youth Conservation Corps - for young adults to work Volunteer and Community Service for public lands Student Career Experience Programs Student Temporary Employment Programs “Creating a 21st Century Youth Conservation Corps“. Although the U.S. Forest Service Planning Rule is still a draft document, it has helped to produce environmental change for one special group of involved students. Over the past year this special group of young adults attended planning rule public sessions, followed developing issues, and then provided some input of their own. Through their diligence and proactive engagement, some of their concerns have made it into the draft planning rule.

Phipps project green heart || sustainable-landscaping It was William Pitt, the Elder, The Earl of Chatham - British Prime Minister (1766 to 1778) who said: "Unlimited power is apt to corrupt the minds of those who possess it" Americas astronomical debt is a product of a political dinosaur - it fact the largest dinosaur ever created - The Federal Reserve Banking System. This loosely coupled agglomerate of Mega Financial Institutions has used the government of the United States of America to generate the largest profits of any organization in the history of the world bar none. If this great nation is to fulfill its golden potential - this system will have to be charged with this debt and separated from its relationship to the government - now! This thought is not my own and the proof is momentous and should be heard in a civil courtroom with grand jury powers to cut the lying and deceiving powers that be - to their quick. Hot off the presses……conservation gets a major boost This is not radical environmentalism - it is sound economic practice.........republicanism and its power mad conservatism is just hypocritical enough to drive up the price of oil to $5.00 per gallon by the time their divided party reaches the convention in august.....to say that such extortion practices are hypocritical is a gross understatement; how did Messiah say it - "The thief only comes ...................."; this fits republicanism to a tee.

True guidance - may decide Americas political future. This examiner column has investigated many aspects of this grand issue relating specifically to the incredible developments being made these days in the field of Audio-Visual Technology. Providing guidance to the inquiring public is more than coincidence - yet must coincide with the real world. The most perfect thing is a circle - its expression a sphere; its way must provide perfect correspondence with everything. The world itself describes this way. That is why coincidence is important; to know what is possible - what is the way to go. This would prescribe a oneness which in fact exists but in history is broken - the information age can help to heal this brokenness. However, it cannot prevent hostility - only give the wary an opportunity to prevent violent confrontation......this takes vigilance; it also take integrity - that is why defense and its strategic policies are of the utmost importance. Guidance also takes common sense to realize that because people in general are short-sighted and ethnically oriented reconciliation for the sake of peace must supersede pride - if the source of this pride is ones identity. Sometimes it takes a greater power that what worldly governments provide to accomplish this task - this is why it is written; the book of Hebrews (ch4 v 12) admonishes "The nations". For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Just think if Gods word defeats the mighty warrior - then how much more will it guide their feet into the right and proper path. As a symbol of this guidance Israel fulfills the ideals of conservation - its people also have conservative moral and political principles and a mandate to do great things.....what more do the people of the world want. What is the very best idea - One Jerusalem - always! This green generation and its millennial cohorts are doing great things - take a moment to pause and reflect - count the blessings. Special thanks to Phipps conservatory and its Project Green Heart - take your cameras; please.

The difference between medicine and science (or is there medicine for what science is making) Corporate social responsibility Questioning this paradigm of distributive justice is all the rage; it also begets as it were - the liars paradox because this would entail proof that corporations are indeed responsible to any one or any thing other than their ownership. Yet the global sustainable goal has been set and this means that transnational corporations must begin to appear interested in cooperating with the governments from whom they extract their economic gain. Socialism and its partner communism are not in fact examples of corporate value systems but are generated by grass roots movements which help to establish social institutions to serve the needs of downtrodden humanity. This is not the sense of a so-called bleeding heart liberal but one firmly based upon ethical morality and its ideal of charity; for love is after all the greatest virtue. Cue the conflict free student movement.
  • 79. The Conflict Free Campus Initiative (CFCI) is a joint effort of the Enough Project and STAND, the student-leddivision of United to End Genocide. CFCI represents a constituency of students who want conflict free electronicproducts. Currently, there are over 100 local CFCI campaigns at colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada andthe United Kingdom. In the past two years, 11 schools — including Stanford, University of Pennsylvania, DukeUniversity, Clark University, and Emory University — have passed resolutions and policies prioritizing companieswho are taking action to become conflict free. In July, high school STAND students in Edina, Minnesota even gottheir city council to pass a conflict free resolution, making Edina the third conflict free city in the country.The movement is growing, and companies are starting to feel the pressure. When Duke University studentsmade a video asking alumnus Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, to get serious about making a conflict free device,they got a phone call from his office. Motorola Solutions has piloted a closed-pipe supply line project toguarantee the tantalum it uses in its products is conflict free. Intel has even committed to make a conflict freeprocessor by 2013. Corporate Social ResponsibilityFor a business to be sustained long-term, a company needs to replace a single-financial bottom line with a morebalanced triple-bottom line encompassing economic, social and environmental objectives into its businesspractices (also referred to as “people, planet, profit”). The CSR approach outlines key areas of focus andguidance for its implementation which ultimately seek to achieve these three objectives.Other definitions:The World Business Council for Sustainable Development in its publication “Making Good Business Sense” byLord Holme and Richard Watts, used the following definition. “Corporate Social Responsibility is the continuingcommitment by business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving thequality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large”The same report gave some evidence of the different perceptions of what this should mean from a number ofdifferent societies across the world. Definitions as different as “CSR is about capacity building for sustainablelivelihoods. It respects cultural differences and finds the business opportunities in building the skills ofemployees, the community and the government” from Ghana, through to “CSR is about business giving back tosociety” from the Philippines.
  • 80. Traditionally in the United States, CSR has been defined much more in terms of a philanthropic model.Companies make profits, unhindered except by fulfilling their duty to pay taxes. Then they donate a certainshare of the profits to charitable causes. It is seen as tainting the act for the company to receive any benefitfrom the giving.The European model is much more focused on operating the core business in a socially responsible way,complemented by investment in communities for solid business case reasons. Personally, I believe this model ismore sustainable because:1. Social responsibility becomes an integral part of the wealth creation process – which if managed properlyshould enhance the competitiveness of business and maximize the value of wealth creation to society.2. When times get hard, there is the incentive to practice CSR more and better – if it is a philanthropic exercisewhich is peripheral to the main business, it will always be the first thing to go when push comes to shove.However, as with any process based on the collective activities of communities of human beings (as companiesare) there is no “one size fits all”. In different countries, there will be different priorities, and values that willshape how business act. Moreover, even the observations above are changing over time. The US has growingnumbers of people looking towards core business issues.For instance, the CSR definition used by Business for Social Responsibility is “Operating a business in a mannerthat meets or exceeds the ethical, legal, commercial and public expectations that society has of business.On the other hand, the European Commission hedges its bets with two definitions wrapped into one: “A conceptwhereby companies decide voluntarily to contribute to a better society and a cleaner environment. A conceptwhereby companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and in theirinteraction with their stakeholders on a voluntary basis”.When you review each of these, they broadly agree that the definition now focuses on the impact of how youmanage your core business. Some go further than others in prescribing how far companies go beyond managingtheir own impact into the terrain of acting specifically outside of that focus to make a contribution to theachievement of broader societal goals. It is a key difference, when many business leaders feel that theircompanies are ill equipped to pursue broader societal goals, and activists argue that companies have nodemocratic legitimacy to take such roles. That particular debate will continue. Dedicated to the Conflict-Free Campus Initiative

(AP Photo/BP PLC) Transcript |BP to Pay $7.8B to Settle Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Lawsuit. Is it a Bad Deal for Gulf ResidentsInvestigative journalists Greg Palast and Antonia Juhasz examine who wins and who loses in BP’ssettlement. "*BP is+ basically being told, if you’re like a bank robber, you put the money back in the vault,and everything’s forgiven," says Palast, who also investigated the Exxon Valdez settlement. Meanwhile,state and federal governments are still pursuing separate civil claims against BP for environmentaldamage. "That’s when we’re going to hopefully uncover those 72 million pages of investigation that willinclude wrongdoing not just by BP, not just by Transocean, not just by Halliburton, but every major oilcompany involved the offshore—and, very likely, at least based on my research, wrongdoing by theObama administration," says Juhasz. "It’s the desire to keep that out of the public that has pushed thissettlement process forward." ……………….BP pledged up to $500 million over a decade to conductindependent scientific research on the environmental effects.
  • 82. It is the magnitude of these enterprises which perplexes safety engineers and environmentalists. This isalso true of a new technology called fracking which has been developed by this same Industry.What is a Nanofactory? The Nanofactory is a proposed compact molecular manufacturingsystem, possibly small enough to sit on a desktop, which could build a diverse selection of large-scale atomically precise diamondoid products. The Nanofactory is potentially a high quality,extremely low cost, and very flexible manufacturing system.The principal input to a diamondoid Nanofactory is simple hydrocarbon feedstock moleculessuch as natural gas, propane, or acetylene. Small supplemental amounts of a few other simplemolecules containing trace atoms of chemical elements such as oxygen, nitrogen or silicon mayalso be required.Nanotechnology and its relationship to Audio/Visual Technology gets more exciting on a daily basis – 3Dmodeling – nanolithography and plasmonics are making necessity a mother of invention proverbially.Energy efficiency and renewable energy technology show the greatest promise – here is an eBook sitewhere more information is available……Multiphysics provide the key for visualization and interpretation of these new technologies:  Comsol Multiphysics Suite --------with a first principles approach  Geothermal technology and Green Energy have incredible new developments  Autodesk provides both C.A.D. and freeware support  Caltech demonstrates what a Nanofactory is capable of….  Checkout what nanotechnology simulation is all about!  Multiphysics also has a mechanical engineering aspect  Multiphysics for the real world - new books - plus reliability analysis and risk assessment!In conclusion: time - times and half a time; how spiritual truth and the physical world converge and whytechnology should be servingthis compelling reality.........have a look at some convergence between scientific observation and biblicalprophecy.
