There are geneticists who say that locating the gene that initiates the ageing process in humans, and turning it off, will happen within the next fifty years, at the max. Moral enigma??
Suspect you are referring to Elizabeth Blackburn and her works on Telomers. Go to Goggle for additional information. Several articles makes for good reading. She even IMAGINES that we will be able to turn back the aging clock. No not that one goes back to infant. More like your various immune systems will strengthen to fullest potential. Repairing damaged aged scars and replenishing with new cells. Like I said good reading there.

I speculate that people will not be jammed in by technology. Rather they will be set free from home environment and family. Individuals within loosely commune cell sectors. Traveling at the drop of a thought. Experiencing ever increasing knowledge. Until all knowledge has been obtained and then someone blows the whistle and yells alright everybody out of the pool. We are going to start over…. LOL

Even now more and more people are having their groceries delivered, spending more time at home with their flatscreens their smartphones and their internet. I think the advent of cellphone technology will usher in the era of cars that drive themselves, ending the carnage on the roads relating to talking and texting, as well as drinking, eating and just plain driving while sleepy. Cars using radar and lasers can already drive better than any person. Getting the public to give up their steering wheels will be difficult, but far from impossible. I'm driving to Texas next week, wish the car would just drive itself while I read.

LOL you still do not realize what books I read. Sometimes I do read those books for the grandkids, that you mentioned. However that is less than .01% of what I read.
Congratulations on your Solar Green Garden. That’s how I started as well. First the workshop then on to the house. Recently just picked up a 2,000 watt pure wave inverter to add on.
Bird house yup have one of those as well but if you remember I first mentioned to you my interest in building things way back when I was making my own solar panels from solar cells on up. Most of the substrates for the panels were free as I was simply making them from what people were discarding. Remember…? Getting old has its lapses don’t they?
Real thinking is what some think they are doing when actually they are merely rearranging their prejudices…
Hey now try a food garden. That can be an interesting add on hobby as well. I have some 2nd and third generation plants still going, as well as the everyday varieties.
I just might try a small garden, but it's going to have to get a little cooler than this. Pure sine wave inverters do cost more but it's the only way to go. At least this stuff is modular, so you can just keep adding on.

Am running a 12 volt system right now but down the road I might rewire everything in series for a higher voltage. Less worry about meltdowns.

Denmark

Denmark's stance on immigration has often been considered controversial. The largely homogenous country has reportedly offered immigrants cash incentives to leave if they cannot assimilate into Danish culture. The incentive was driven by the far-right Danish People's Party, which states on its website that "Denmark is not an immigrant-country and never has been. Thus we will not accept transformation to a multiethnic society."

One of Denmark's most scrutinized laws on immigration is the 24-year rule, which states that in order for the foreign spouse of a Danish citizen to qualify for citizenship both the Danish spouse and the foreign spouse must be at least 24 years old. The rule's purpose is to limit the number of immigrants, prevent forced marriages, and create a better integration process, according to a report by humanityinaction.org .

However, the law has prevented families from reuniting, sparking a debate over possible human rights violations. There are special circumstances where the law can be waived, such as if the spouse is a refugee, has underage children with connections to Denmark, or is handicapped or seriously ill.

Stupid and totally worthless U.S. media can't or won't report the truth or anything worthwhile. Now King Barry
treats them like the obedient little children that they
are. I guess King Barry finds the 1st Amendment "fundamentally flawed" along with the rest of the Constitution.

Thank you bug killer.
Yep, we are poisoning our own planet. I won't even fish the Trinity river here in Texas because of the pesticide contamination in the fish. Even 40 years
ago, mercury contamination was well known in the fish population in N.H. and
nothing has been done about it.

Yet, the green vulture capitalists want to take our money in the form of taxes and do nothing about the environment.

We grow our own food Defiant whenever possible. No pesticides, irradiating or chemical fertilizers. We are in the process of building a greenhouse for winter. The difference in taste is astounding.

Why would anybody even consider eating fish out of the Trinity, back in the sixties we called it S--t River, the aroma was nausiatibg. Three more years and we will be rid of Barac, his screwedup policies might take a while longer.

Dallas uses the Trinity as a bathroom. Here in North Carolina, I'm constantly surprised at how clean the rivers are. I lived on the Trinity for years, didn't notice any strange odors.

The waste treatment plant at one time sat due east of downtown Ft. Worth, I lived just a little east of it, boy did I notice strange odors, now the waste treatment plant is just west of Arlington and those folks in far west Arlington sure notice those odors now. If you get away from metropolitan ares of Texas you can still find clean rivers here.

Have already read a few books by Stephen Hawking through the years. Some are “A brief history of time” 1988 “The universe in a nut shell” 2011 “ Grand DESIGN” 2010” Theory of everything” 2002 as well as many other authors on the subject of physics. Their imaginations is the macro that is exposed with the micro evolving scenarios, to our sciences evolution and the benefits we derive from them. NASA and now the private enterprises that are evolving to ride in the wake of NASA’s discoveries. Such as your driverless car, which has passed muster recently and is being tested on our municipal highways, as we comment.
Mar’s rover? Drones, etc.
Within the fertile imaginations of these geniuses lays the future domains of ours and our decedents to come. Not only in science can we find geniuses and their imaginations that are forming our civilization. Virtually every field you can conceive there is or are geniuses behind it in its construct and evolution. There is where I choose to climb the mountains. Views are breathtaking.. Occasionally strolling through the valleys to observe what the effects of these mountains have on the organizations that flourish there.
Through the wormhole is a spin off from Einstein’s theory of relativity and dimensional warping of conduits of time displacement. Example consider a “U” as one such form of warped space . One could continue to travel along the designated loop of the “U” or take a shortcut from one tip to other. Traversing a shorter amount of time and space to arrive at another point in time/space. Warping of space has been proven to exist. Our Jules Vern’s of today, use these discoveries to spin off a multi imaginative stories.
All of this demands our constant attention to the advancement of education, health and security of our civilization. Inequality under regulation becomes essential in any pursuit of those goals.

It’s a dirty job but someone must do it. Trinity’s pollution is pre Obama illuminating your biases once again. Hmm… imagine being down wind from West Texas.
West Texas, with its infamous safety record, has once again come to national attention. Announcing they will now be the Waste R-US of the Nation ! Hazardous waste of all varieties will be accepted.
Ron Baltzer is proud to have a robust complex with its one stop shop with everything in waste control specializing.
Perry is only scratching the back of his buddy Simmons, who has contributed $1.1 Million through the years to Perry’s political campaigns. Simmons, one of the ultra wealthy amongst us, owns the complex, that resides on a 90 acre site that is part of a 1,380 acre site operation for hazardous waste.
Presently they are receiving and or have received the PCB’s from the Hudson River of N.Y., Radioactive waste from the “Cold War” Plant up in Ohio, that was the producer for atomic weapons and as well the Radioactive stock pile from New Mexico. Receiving no less than two shipments per week from just that one facility After all N.M. wants to have 3,706 cubic Meters of that waste disposed of by June 30 2014. Just a few examples of the efficiency of this site that can be found about 350 miles west of Dallas.
Perry has left the Sovereign State Of Texas with a gift that could only be achieved through deregulations and cheap uneducated laborers. Now that’s the republican way… Job Opportunities !…Hmmmm

Hope you have better soil than where I’ am. To saline and full of underground varmints. Opted to go with a container garden. Building up a separate soil can be expensive but solves the problem as it introduces new problems, that as time goes on, are solvable. Experimenting helps to advance the technique of container gardening and its flourishing capabilities. Enjoyable.
Aye I’m running 12 volt and will for at least another year or two. Then I could advance to a 24 volt system. No loans and cash only is my motto for this project.
I’ll be adding a “0” gage main wire soon to field a junction box. That will allow all additional solar panels to feed into it, for dispersals through another “J” box at the main station to the various charge controllers. Gotta have that solid infrastructure. Safety and efficacy demands quality within the frameworks of this independent energy scenario.
Yup modular can be used for many items as some items require Pure Sine. Trial an error or consult a cheat book.. Modulators are good for outings as well… Picnics, camping, outdoor events etc. etc. off the car if nothing else. I have made 4 portable solar panels of 65 watt for extended outings like camping. Experimenting with Vertical wind mill. As side interest
It will have to take advantage of ground wind to suffice at least a 12 volt system. That’s on my back burner.
