Story

Innovative Entrepreneurial Dreamer
Introduction
Hey, I'm me.   Dig physics, mostly the classical stuff that models the way the world works in a macro state.

I am helping the Energy From Thorium Foundation change the legislation to allow Thorium Breeders to be fully developed and stand a chance in the open market.  Follow me at @ThorFoundation on Twitter and on facebook Energy from Thorium.

I am working on a line of camera accessories.  Hopefully will be looking for investment soon.

I am working on a multi legged robot.  #Excited. #arduino.

I am a Account Support Consultant for Fleet Customers for NACCO Materials Handling Group and its a fun and challenging job so far.  Lots of SQL queries.  

I'm a Beta user of G+ and a love it,  hopefully I will be around much more than I have been.

Bragging rights
Russ Wilcox has left me a voicemail. A Mensan. Aspiring entrepreneur/inventor. I once asked +Vic Gundotra for $1 Billion dollars in a hangout, and his response was 'I will circulate this around internally!"

Very interesting. Earth is getting greener #climatechange
While the news coming out of forests is often dominated by deforestation and habitat loss, research published today in Nature Climate Change shows that the world has actually got greener over the past decade. Despite ongoing deforestation in South America and Southeast Asia, we found that the decline in these regions has been offset by recovering forests outside the tropics, and new growth in the drier savannas and shrublands of Africa and Austra...

"Other" is too big to ignore too, so at least it is biased.

I have been excited about this research for a couple years. #microbiome
Rob Knight is a pioneer in studying human microbes, the community of tiny single-cell organisms living inside our bodies that have a huge — and largely unexplored — role in our health. “The three pounds of microbes that you carry around with you might be more important than every single gene you carry around in your genome,” he says. Find out why.

DC power grid? #gizmodo might be missing some critical pieces of the puzzle. I could see point of use DC but transmission and building connections will still be AC I'm fairly certain
There's a lot to love about USB. The plugs are small and convenient. The cable can carry both power and data. Plus, USB is, well, universal. This is why USB is considered by some to be the future of electricity. Smart grids, more convenient storage, solar power—according to a new Economist report it's all easier with USB.
