A diagram of our location in the observable universe

OK, I'm in.  No cables to pull them out when I run, gestures for weather and answering the phone.  Location awareness so the black helicopters will be able to find me.
Introducing to you an ultimate game-changer for the way we listen to music: the Bragi Dash earbuds. These neat little gadgets are the world’s first wireless smart in-ear headphones. But they’re also much more than that. You can store music on them, take phone calls with them, wear them swimming and even track your fitness with them. Awesome.

Interstellar: When science helps producing fiction

Only true geniuses can imagine how it would be looking at a black hole directly. When scientists develop a new mathematical model to help us visualize concealed events, the results can be staggering. The mathematical model allowed the production of incredible images used in the Interstellar movie. The used model was published in the journal Classical and Quantum Gravity, and it helped understanding black holes gravitational pull. A team of physics, among them Prof. Kip Thorne and Prof. Oliver Jones, developed a new mathematical model they named “Double Negative Gravitational Renderer (DNGR)”. The result was the possibility to simulate how the black hole gravity affects light and the way we can observe the event.

Mutation Order in Tumor Genes Affects Cancer Outcome.

For the first time, researchers have proved that the order in which cancer genes mutate affects the type of malignancy that results and its response to treatment. Although the findings are specific to myeloproliferative neoplasms, they suggest that studies of other types of tumors should take into account the timing of the underlying genetic mutations as a potentially critical factor in establishing an accurate diagnosis as well as in making choices about treatment.

At present, conducting similar experiments in people with solid tumors of the lung, breast or liver, for example, would be much more difficult because the cancer cells are harder to get at and tend to be more evolved — which means they contain more mutations to sort out. But advances in single-cell sequencing could mitigate that challenge.

∴ Putting your big idea into motion™
How are you today? Feeling good?  Feeling down?
Excellent! You came to the right place.  Living in this very moment.


Cycles are natural. If your situation is not what you had hoped, it's bound to improve. If it's currently great, than you will want faithful friends around when it becomes less than you hoped. Maybe you will decide that the situation doesn't matter, that you can be happy no matter what. That is the better way in my opinion. This idea may be hard to swallow at times, but it has been my experience, for whatever that is worth to you.  

My mission in life: Help others create and adapt to change for the better カイゼン
I am passionate about helping everyone leverage the dynamic nature of their world to grow in every aspect. My reward is to see them make an impact that energizes them and the lives of others.
