Is America losing the edge in innovation? How can this be? Where did we go wrong? What happened? Could it be that we’ve changed our education system and society in a way that gives less incentive to innovators? That would be a travesty since our entire national identity is in part founded on the ‘can do attitude’. Let’s discuss this briefly and you tell me if you see it too.
Are we losing our ability to think creatively and innovatively solve problems? I believe so. We also seem to be losing self-reliance, no need to solve problems – all the problems have already been solved. No need to think, just look up the answer on Google. Suddenly, there is no accountability or integrity – passing off copied ideas and plagiarism for innovation.
Look, I am not Luddite, and I don’t live in a cave, I know there is innovation out … Read More
Often, I have heard individuals say that the most controversial topics in life involve religion and politics. What they don’t probably think about is the fact that most people have faith in something, but it might not fit into a traditional definition – God, a group, freedom, their career or even a pet.
And politics is not just the formal system that we recognize through voting and governance. In fact, politics is part of absolutely everything that we do!
The two, faith and politics in fact, are very much tied together. We tend to think that the political party that we support should reflect and support the faith ideas that we value. That doesn’t always happen though, especially when there is a one strong party that has enough seats that they can rule over everyone without considering the perspectives of the other parties.
True democracy allows everyone to have input … Read More
I recently took a trip out to California to visit with my family. It just so worked out that the best/cheapest flights were early in the morning. Problem is, I am not a morning person.
On my return flight, I had to get up around 5:30 and was just exhausted by the time I boarded. I hadn’t had any coffee yet because my plan was to sleep on the plane. But my plans changed when I ended up sitting next to a very interesting character. Probably the most interesting person I have met so far on my wild adventures via public transportation. She began with, “I brought my service dog on the plane. I hope you don’t mind.”
“No, not at all.” I said trying to be polite. She piped up again, “She’s a chihuahua.”
“Ah, good deal. What’s her name?” My eyelids started to droop, and I felt terrible … Read More
Demographers’ defined the baby boom as a birth surge started in 1946, after the World War II and reached its peak in 1957 and continued until 1964 because of the postwar prosperity. Most people uses “generation” as their term but demographers precisely referred it as “cohort” (group of individuals experiencing a certain event within a specified time). This reveals that social changes interconnect with the life of every baby boomer.
There two groups of baby boomers. The babies born from 1946 to 1955 were called early boomers. Those who were born from 1956 to 1964 were called as late boomers. The last set were born during the first tour of Beatles in America and the first early ones was approximately 18 years that time. They are were noticeable because of their big populations. They crowded junior high, elementary schools, high schools, labor market, and colleges.
Studies show that the impacts … Read More
When we buy a new car, we make sure to get a car that works fine and we feel comfortable in it. This is why most of us opt for test-driving a car before purchasing it. It is a smart thing to do. But even so, our hopes and dreams will be shattered if the car we bought starts to act strangely and it stops running. Even more troublesome is when after repeated repair attempts, the car still has the same problem. In this case, we are sad to announce you, but you’ve stumbled upon a lemon. The best thing to do is to get your car replaced with a working one or have your money returned. Hire a lemon law attorney if things do not go well with the car dealer.
When you realize that after consecutive repairs, the car you have bought still displays the same problems or … Read More
Our Federal Government should stay out of regulations that purposely and adversely affect one competitor in industry for the benefit of another – unfortunately with our lobbyists in Washington DC, that’s just not what happens. We need standardization for our civilization, but must be very careful how we legislate that, or determine such parameters.
All too often those closest to the power base get their way over their marketplace competition. It’s free-enterprise and the consumers who lose, while one group of investors and executives get rich – then are all too willing to return the favor in campaign contributions to keep that gravy train hovering its Maglev Track to future profits.
Not long ago we were discussing this issue at our Think Tank and think tanker Andrew stated:
“The reason why I believe this is such an important issue is a very simple concept. The Federal Government is constantly flip … Read More
Sports and recreation are key elements of a balanced and happy lifestyle. However, the lives of people in metropolitan cities are increasingly being characterized by a strenuous work culture, which combined with the rise of technology-driven electronic gadgets is becoming a barrier to healthy living. While most people want to relax and take care of their health after coming back from the office, they are either too tired or don’t have access to recreational places in their immediate vicinity.
Let us now look at some of the important sports and recreational amenities that should be a part of every housing society:
1. Swimming Pool
Swimming is a rigorous, full-body exercise that can greatly improve our fitness levels. It boosts the weight loss process, aids in muscle toning, improves lung capacity, and helps maintain heart health. After a long and tiring day at work, a pool session can provide a really … Read More

I’m sick and tired, and I’m not going to take it anymore! These famous words, from the movie, Network, should become the motto, for Americans, who are tired of being represented by politicians, who, seem to, consistently, put their personal/ political agenda, and self – interest, ahead of the common good, and needs, priorities, and relevant. sustainable actions, we need, today, perhaps, more than ever, in recent memory! Wouldn’t it be nice, if those we elected, actually, put meaningful, relevant, well – considered, POLICY, focused on our best interests, both short – term, as well as in the longer – run? With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means and represents, and why, it’s so very important.
1. Priorities; perceptions; people; planning: Whose priorities, deserve to be considered, as most essential? How can any … Read More
I have not lost resolve or commitment to our wonderful nation and home, The United States of America, but I want to stress the concept of “United.” If you, the reader, find yourself relating to the concepts that I present, then I know that I have selected well. I can see with one eye that this is not the America that my Dad grew up in and helped to make strong and free. Time for some honest-to-goodness spring cleaning in our government!
I believe that our Motherland is in danger, but not as much danger as it would appear to the untrained eye. As the “silent majority,” or more accurately, “the straight-thinking majority,” we have been observing and analyzing all of the seemingly insane antics of a Government run amuck. I feel confident in stating that all of the profound failures and constitutional violations of Big Government will only serve … Read More
