The Future of Urban Transportation

Urban Migration In the recent past the number of people around the world living in urban cities has exceeded the number of people living in rural areas. This trend will continue, and by 2050 ⅔rds of the world’s population will live in urban areas. People are flocking to large cities for any number of reasons. To be sure, the traffic… Continue reading

Do You Really Want This?

I sincerely ask this question because this is the road we are rapidly traveling down. And the destination will be an America none of us will recognize at all. So, if we don’t want to live like this in the very near future, we have to do something about it now. Specifically, let’s talk about just 2 things for now:… Continue reading

The New Patriotism

My post is not intended to anger anybody. I’m the one who is angry. I literally grow angrier every week. In this post I share my perspective: some of what makes me angry. You see, I sense the careful crafting of a new idea I’m calling The New Patriotism. The New Patriotism is being born as our democracy, our representative… Continue reading

Attention All Educators

It’s taken me a long time to do the research, write the articles, and then shoot the videos. But I’m unveiling them today. This is very important information for my colleagues around the world. If you are an educator, you need to know this. You need to take action! For my colleagues in Georgia: The expectation at this time is… Continue reading

New AppleTV & George Orwell

Short version: Unless you are wanting to play a few games on your TV, or unless you want to cut the cable cord, the new 1st gen TV is a total pass. Version 1 of the tvOS is, as has become standard practice for Apple’s new products, a big step backwards. The foundation they have set in place has potential… Continue reading

Bob Jones III Must Be Elated!

In the early 1980’s, then “university” president Bob Jones III publicly called for the stoning of gay people. I know. Seems crazy. (All the fumes from that musty art work in the gallery not to mention playing dress up with all of the priceless costumes in the Rodeheaver Auditorium costume shop!) But, yes, he actually called for the murder of… Continue reading

Corporations Versus People

I think we live in the strangest of times: Corporations are considered people, and people are considered mere data points: test scores in school and profit margins as adults. And I continue to be revolted by religion, all over the world, including the fundamentalist movement in this nation, that tries to control women’s sexuality. It’s just some perverse, bizarre fixation… Continue reading
