Be it the composition of media, art, your life or the roads
Quality Infrastructure is key to support your ebb and flow.

I’ve been spending a lot of time at the museums and such
I’m smitten by Rennaissance art and the archeologists’ light touch.

I’m a student of the Sciences who’s intensely studying the history of art.
Quality infrastructure preserves well; it’s the best way to project start.

The week is still young, how’s your infrastructure looking so far?
Are you elevating well? Do you need to raise the bar?

You be the foreman of your life; utilize integrity and quality tools.
Meditate and workout; pray in silence or aloud.
Quality investments won’t ever render you ‘the fool.

A clear conscience is what maintains your cool.
Go ahead and hump the goodness that is birthed through you.

Whether you work from home or are corporate seeded,
quality infrastructure is all the more needed.

We all rely on streets, highways and toll roads
to deliver us safely to and fro where we need to go.

chimp-running-with-hubcapWhere are you going? 🙂

 

This is the day that follows day two.

constantly evolving; to improve is what we do.

Check your core and reinforce every joint.
Quality Infrastructure requires improving many points.

Getting this 411—

In Communication, Griot, Movies, News, Self Improvement, Technology on September 30, 2015 at 10:27 am

early-riser
I wake up WAY TOO EARLY in Arizona
and that usually means rising between the hours of 2:30am and 3:30am. It’s something my body has grown accustomed to over the years. I was a night owl in high school. I obviously felt like I had to stay up to help usher the sun into its dawn position. However, by the time I was well into the swing of “mom duty” and raising two kids, I forfeited staying up all night for an early turn-in (usually around 11pm) and then I would be up-and-at-it again by 6am. Just early enough to be up-and-mobile by the time the girls alarm clock went off for school. The years brought adolescent maturity and by the time my last daughter was in high school, I was a master at turning in at or before 8pm nightly. That’s also around the same time that I started getting up at 3:30am.

I do quite a bit everyday before the sun and most people – still, the world is always way ahead of me, (in terms of news and headlines). Arizona is on Arizona time and at this moment the entire East Coast is 3-hours ahead of us and the South Coast is 2-hours of ahead of us — in time zone. California is on the same time zone as Arizona right now, but their clocks will drop 1-hour back once Fall comes in.

My quandary: How can I possibly stay connected to multi-regional and international news if the sun dawns in my region last?

Possible resolution in play: Get up early, put Morning Joe on in the background while I surf internet news and of course my WordPress Reader Tab. Wherein I found the following linked stories…
decorative-line-divider1

Todays tabs were informative. There was business, politics and fun.
Todays WordPress Reader yielded me literal dimensional 411:

PrisonInmate-Firefighters
Even though most don’t consider the prison population to be a helpful sum,
when it comes to extinguishing forest fires, some inmates get it done.

Get this 411: I’m speaking of no other than
California’s “Angels in Orange.”

Firefighters are in demand as the earth dries up and the sun peers hotter.
Inmates have the capacity to help. Officials gave them fire masks and a hose full of water.
What a practical problem solver…

Then over in Tennessee the air quality is far less than a 10,NBCC-harmful-TN
and the National Black Chamber of Commerce is no “person of colors” friend.

Participants in an Environmental Protection Agency research project
said 40% of the population living near energy plants are losing the bet.

That 40% is made up of people of color.
Special interests group countered – because it won’t affect their lives or their mothers.

Special interests groups conducted a study and the National Black Chamber of Commerce did bite.
They’ve caught on to special interest donor growth and would rather be funded than RIGHT.

What we know is:

“For the past year, a team of Tennessee State University students and I have been investigating the air quality in and around the Cayce Place community as participants in an Environmental Protection Agency research project.

Low-income and minority communities such as Cayce Place are often the hardest hit by the effects of air pollution and climate change.

The EPA’s new Clean Power Plan will, for the first time ever, limit power plant releases of carbon dioxide, particulate matter and related pollutants such as ozone.

Forty percent of the U.S. population living near power plants are people of color — so the plan will greatly benefit these communities. It will reduce incidences of asthma and other pollution-related illnesses, as well as create thousands of new jobs and save families money on utility and medical bills,” … but no one’s listening or heeding this report.

Tennessee get it together.
The ozone is what protects us and regulates the weather.

Stop taking special interest cash and selling off the quality of life for your residents.
No one moves to a death trap and work like slaves — only to die trying to pay the rent.

Am I my brothers keeper? – Yes I am! I yield him plenty of compassion and not pity.
I’m a soldier for human rights, though I sound like a cast member from New Jack City.

Ruthless, I am not. For those who live by the sword – die by it.
Why suffocate your brothers for the special interests of others? –  Aint that some bullshit.

Don’t be a low-moraled bitch.
Consider your own family for a bit…

NBCC:: Is a radiation hub a great residential fit?
Get out of here and off of it!
Lest you move-in your mom and keep the radiation pilot lit.

There are many fine authors and great stories on my WordPress Readers list,
but none pierce me as compassionate as our loved ones who are on a journey to FORGET.

They don’t remember your face anymore. They don’t recognize your smile.
You’ve been with them all of your life, after all you are family – their child.

Dementia and Alzheimers is wild
so while perusing I found this file:

Three films about Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimers

Ed Rowe of Cornblog wrote:

“Alzheimer’s disease is a ‘worthy’ issue and such issues don’t often make for great films. Even the most successful have their moment of exposure and then fade away like memories. That said, Alzheimer’s is an issue with inbuilt dramatic thrust. What could be more scary than a disappearing self? I’ve a special interest in dementia…”

He then lists 3 movies that touch on this topic.
Medical science is in hot pursuit to research a way to stop it.

For family members dementia is a huge life test and requires a loving crew.
There’s nothing natural in the scope of humanity that preps us for folk FORGETTING you.

Here are 3 films with 3 different views
all about Alzheimer… produced to help you:

IRIS
AWAY FROM HER
SILL ALICE

At current, science does not exactly know how Alzheimers chooses its prey. 
So since God is the author of all big and small – I recommend you be vigilant and pray.

My great Aunt Hattie suffered from this. We used to be social for a familial while.
Then one day I stopped by to visit her home and she said, “You ain’t Art’s child.”

Art is my mother and Aunt Hattie is my grandmothers sister.
That was when I realized the longevity of a strong mind – had missed her.

It all came on after the passing of her hubby. I remember it like yesterday.
So yeah, science doesn’t know what to do, but God does. Do pray.

Gotta Love BILL MAHER

Gotta Love BILL MAHER

Ep. 252 June 15th, 2012

Last Friday’s episode was… quite informative, though no more insightful or invigorating than usual. BILL MAHER is quite the host personality and natural comedian. I so enjoyed yesterdays show that I’m going to do a little transcribing today to share it the contents of the show with those of you that missed it. HBO’s REAL TIME with Bill Maher is a continuation of ABC’s POLITICALLY INCORRECT and rightfully so. That Bill is a hoot. Let’s get to the shows contents:

The show started out with a “throw back momnent” with Kevin Costner:

KEVIN: We keep focusing on a crisis, but we don’t want to look back and our leadership has successfully let us down because of their desire to be elected to a second term… Just be content that history will judge you after 4-years. Maybe we don’t need an 8-year president. Maybe we want somebody that swings at the fence for us.
__________________________

Friday nights guest panel included Joseph Stiglitz, Alan Thicke, Karen Finney, David Frum, and Kristen Soltis. First up, Dr. Stiglitz::

BILL: I must first start with a confession, I’ve been reading you for years so that when I went to cocktail parties, I could fake my way through a discussion of economics. The other day I read that you said, “Everybody’s worried [in this economy] about what’s going to happen to Europe.” In reference to Spain, and you said, “The Spanish Banks are being bailed out by the Spanish Government and the Spanish Government is being bailed out by the banks is ‘boo boo economics’.” That’s great conversation for a cocktail party. But what do I say after that?

Dr. S: How long is it?

BILL: Just a couple of minutes before I run away to get another drink.

Dr. S: No, I meant, “How long is the Spanish economy going to last”?

BILL: Well how long is it going to last?

Dr. S: A few months ago they poured in about a trillion dollars into the ECB [European Central Banks] banking system to bail out the government – and that lasted a couple of months. This time Europe poured in 125 billion dollars and it lasted, (maybe) a couple of days. So the likely hood of it working out is not good.

BILL: But how does that affect us? I mean, this really plays into Mitt Romney’s hands. Doesn’t it?

Dr. S: I don’t know if it plays into Mitt Romney’s hand, but what it will mean is that the economy will be weaker. But it does have another side to it. One of the reasons that we’re going to be affected is, that we haven’t fixed our banking system. Remember we had the crisis in 2008?

BILL: I do remember. I lost all of my money. I had it in Lehman Brothers.

Dr. S: Remember they said they were going to fix it [banking system] and they had this bill called: DODD FRANK?

BILL: Yes.

DR. S: Well they didn’t fix it. One of the things they were supposed to fix is the lack of transparency. But we don’t really know the extent to which our banks are interlaced with European banks.

BILL: We don’t really know?

Dr. S: We don’t know.

BILL: You don’t know?

Dr. S: I don’t know.

BILL: Then I don’t know. I’m the guy who gets my cues from you. Now, you have won a Nobel Prize, I have not, but I am a student of THE THREE STOOGES. Every Three Stooges Episode, (well not “every” episode) but they always do an episode (and also by the way there was Abbott & Costello and the Barrio Boys) where these comedy teams go to a rich persons mansion and they purposely put down vermin, (rats, mice, roaches) and then they come back the next day as exterminators to fix the problem. You see my point?

Dr. S: Yes.

BILL: You do? I’m just saying ‘This is how the Republicans seem to run for president. I mean, they cause the problem, then they come back the next day as the exterminator. I read this week that Americans lost 40% of their wealth from 1990-Present. But most of it happen after 2007 because of policies of the previous 10 years when Bush was in office.

Dr. S: That’s right and in fact, one of the underlying problems was that inequality was growing. And because those at the top spend less than those in the bottom. When you move money from the bottom to the top the inequality gets weaker. The Feds decided to address this problem by creating a bubble.

BILL: Wasn’t that Alan Greenspan?

Dr. S: Yes. Alan Greenspan and it was supported by his successor. And as they created the bubble, people did spend more. Average savings rate in the United States went down to zero. And that’s not sustainable. And one of the lessons we always teach in economics is “that which is not sustainable won’t be sustained”.

BILL: I’m going to remember that for the next cocktail party. That’s a good one. Sir I read this week that the cost of tickets at Disney Land has gone up to $87 dollars. It used to be $12 dollars in 1982. Now if they were keeping up with inflation it would only gone up to $28 dollars. But it went up to $87 which means a family of five would have to pay…

Dr. S: A lot.

BILL: A lot. As in too much. I mean not that I even want to go to Disney Land but it should be $28 dollars and somehow it got to $87 dollars. It seems to me that says a lot about where the money has gone and whose enjoying this country and why so many people should be pissed off.

Dr. S: That’s right. But what makes me even more concerned is what’s happening to student loans. You know one of the things that came out in the fed report early this week was that Americans have learned [a little bit] about the lessons of credit cards. They’ve figured out [they understood]that all of the banks engaged in abusive credit card practices. But as credit card debt has gone down student load debt has gone up. And what’s so invidious about this is that tuition’s going up very rapidly in 3 years for public state university – it has gone up 15% across the country, but in California and a couple of other states it’s gone up by more than 40%. Understandable given that the states are constrained, they’re cutting back – no help from Washington. And while income’s are going down [wealth is going down] and tuition is going up, students know that if they don’t get an education their life prospects are dim, not good. But if they forgo accepting the gap in education they’re going to be saddled with this for the rest of their lives. Even in bankruptcy they cannot discharge that debt.

BILL: But I must say, it’s not all the fault of the people that’s giving the education or stopping the money going there I read recently in 2009 [the last year they had statistics for this], there were only 39,000 students that graduated with a STEM degree [Science, Technology, Engineering, Math], and they had 2.5 time more students graduating with a degree in Visual and Performing Arts.

Dr. S: This is Los Angeles, so that’s pretty good isn’t it?

BILL: Yeah but Los Angeles isn’t America and when Obama says “We should fix the bridges.” I agree we should fix the bridges – with people who have degrees in Visual and Performing Arts? I think they’re are people around who know how to fix the f@*#ing bridges. [Close] I wish we had more time Doc. Thank you for coming on the show.

So Irene came and went – and didn’t harm NY too much,
she did bless New Jersey with a nice lake-like flood.
The people did heed the warnings and all did hunker down.
Resulting in the bustling Times Square dubbing as a ghost town.
Give Science, Wisdom, Intellect and SELF PRESERVATION a pound.

Beyonce and Jay Z have productive news about their lovin,
Beyonce hit the red carpet (Sun. night) with baby in oven.
A little mini-her or a little mini-him is soon to come.
It’s B’s first child and Jay’s second child in sum.

I’m so glad B has decided to bare child now
And not be like Janet: stingy w/ovaries & waiting it out.

At one point America wanted so badly for Janet to have a biological kid
That tabloids sewed seeds of a child that Chico and she HAD & apparently hid.
Reebie was reported to be raising the child, when suddenly the story went cold.
Now Janet’s back on the tabloids racks with new fiance talking dna mold.

I wish her well. A prosperous career is what most skilled women want.
I’m just not sure that pregnancy is for me during my lusty 40’s flaunt.
Trust –> If I didn’t have kids by now – I’d strive to be the bestest aunt. 🙂

I understand procreating is going to always be in hot fashion.
I just wish MJ was here to encourage Janet to ‘gone & spawn a little more Jackson.
I wonder what happen between she and Dupree –
that there was no child bearing action from he?

This Texas heat is finally calming down. Today we woke up to welcomed cloud cover,
I’m sure glad, because degrees have been hellishly bad – I’m officially a new Fall lover.

School is back in session and dirty talk shows are back on the air
You know the ones filled with trailer park fun? Jerry Springer – if you dare.

My a.m. writes I am duly copping
while CW dirt talk show chopping.

9 a.m. & 10 a.m. are always good to go
First Jerry Springer – then Steve Wilkos.

Today 2 (dna) sisters are fighting over a dike’ish girl.
Yes! Jerry’s show is quite reflective of our colorful world.

CW’s dirt break is at 11 and waiting 30 more minutes is the test.
For at 11:30 it’s me and Y&R getting filthy on legacy CBS.

Speaking of dirt 2011 is on the latter with less than 4.1 more months to go
and running up close will be political debate shows leading up to the 2012 vote.

Dirty. Dirty. Dirty.
Republican runners are thirsty – thirsty – thirsty.

Will there be one who’s knowledgeable base
can step up & beat Obama in political debates?
Ooo Wee — I can’t wait.

Fractal Theory in Progress

In Science on February 8, 2010 at 4:43 pm

I’m so attracted to Fractal Theory. Science is such a turn on. Are you still curious about Fractal Theory? Do you remember what it is?

Fractal Theory is a part of Chaos Theory. It describes a series of identical geometric patterns nestled one inside of the other into infinity.

Chaos Theory says the presence of chaos may actually produce order. Chaos may be necessary for order to develop, (not just order, but BEAUTY as well). Every fractal has a moment of transition – it can go one way or the other depending on which Strange Attractor it’s drawn to.

Strange Attractor is a set of points such that all trajectories nearby are drawn to it. No one really knows what it is – they can see the effect it has on what’s around it, but Scientist haven’t been able to figure out what it is. Some people actually think its final proof of the existence of God because like God we can see the effect as it repeats the pattern infinitely throughout time through beauty, and order out of chaos. But to define what it is…is not possible.

There’s usually two strange attractors in each pattern. Everything that happens around them is defined by that division. The greater the chaos the greater the beauty that comes out of it – assuming that everything follows the right strange attractor – because that’s what shapes the world around it.

The headline video shows a plethora of fractal theory patterns. Notice the two points at the top – those are the strange attractors. These patterns nestle one inside of another to create the world we live in depending on which strange attractor takes the lead. However, being that there are two strange attractors to every pattern and only one shapes our world – what kind of control do you think the weaker attraction has? Does it shape an alternate reality? Is there a parallel world out there beyond my SyFy channel?

Science can be sexy. I wonder what strange attractor is at work shaping our lives and our world as we know it? I wonder if we have any “pull” as far as which strange attractor takes the lead? I wonder if the warring chaos that our country is in will produce order and beauty in Afghanistan and Iraq? Which strange attractor is responsible for The New Orleans Saints winning SuperBowl XLIV? I wonder if the chaos that Haiti is going through will result in beauty and order? Fractal Theory is on my mind and it’s got me feeling strange.

I’m Qui
Living in theory…curiously.
