Warming Climate, Oil And Where We Have To Go

Warming Climate, Oil And Where We Have To Go

Detailed measurements show that the average temperature of the Earth is increasing. Glaciers and snow pack are melting, while ice melt in the Arctic increases the extent of open water during the summer months, a process which may produce significant climate change over time. Sea levels are undergoing a modest thermal expansion as surface temperatures [...]

Get To Know Your Friends Again

Get To Know Your Friends Again

  What’s the right approach to take with others you’ve just met or with people, or  even friends, you’ve known for a while but have not been especially close to lately? Maybe you’ve been working pretty hard and for one reason or another you feel out of commission socially. Maybe you’ve been overworking and just [...]

Expanding Knowledge: Late Career Development

Expanding Knowledge: Late Career Development

  Having spent a lifetime learning, I find myself in the possibly enviable but somewhat confusing position of having forgotten more than most people know. Still, I would not be afraid to take on a fundamentally new learning project; that is, tackle something entirely new and learn it well enough to practice it at a [...]

Bathroom Collage

Bathroom Collage

A  collage is an assemblage of bits and pieces of found art usually of great variety. When the pieces are combined the result may be a work of art with an element of novelty. This art form was first used apparently at the time of the invention of paper in China around 200 B.C., but [...]

As Work Declines We Move Toward Natural Farming

As Work Declines We Move Toward Natural Farming

  Modern life carries its own distinct set of paradigms which are considerably distant from the benign, pastoral but sometimes busy existence which attends natural farming.  If you live in one of the suburbs of New York City or in New Jersey and rise at 5-6 am to take the train into a Wall Street [...]

Don’t Miss Your Life

Don’t Miss Your Life

  Some people are always learning or trying to learn new things. When on rare occasions they are not, they tend to ask, “What shall I get interested in next? If you take this to extremes, you may begin to think, “Am I missing my life.” It is at such times that I begin to think [...]

Over Age 100 Centenarian’s

Over Age 100 Centenarian’s

  Those born today in a highly developed country with an effective health care system have about a one in three chance of living to be 100. The over 100 age group is advancing in size more rapidly on a percentage basis than any other age group. In the last century probably the largest single [...]

Egg White Omelet With Cherry Tomatoes Greens And Portobellos

  Separate the yokes from a dozen eggs. Mix the whites with one-quarter to one-half cup of shredded cheddar or Swiss cheese and set aside while you compile remaining ingredients. First, slice thinly one-half or more of a large Portobello mushroom into a fry pan. Add a little butter or oil alternative and reduce over [...]

Ice Ages, Carbon Dioxide And Global Warming

Ice Ages, Carbon Dioxide And Global Warming

  Ice ages are hard to think about. They happen over geologic time which may be easy for the average geologist to think about, but not so for the average human. The time scale is the major stumbling block. Let’s think about that a little. First, recall that the Earth was formed about the same [...]

Changing The Tax Code

Changing The Tax Code

Increasingly, members of both political parties in the America support a major revision of the Tax Code. While it is possible that we will complete such revisions before the 2012 election, it seems more likely they will be enacted soon afterward or by early 2013 at the latest. In the near depression-like economy, the world [...]
