Re: Jan 16, 2015 - Water crises are a top global risk https://agenda.weforum.org/2015/01/why-world-water-crises-are-a-top-global-risk/

Global water crises – from drought in the world’s most productive farmlands to the hundreds of millions of people without access to safe drinking water – are the biggest threat facing the planet over the next decade.

It's "A Tragedy of the Commons" - "Like the frogs in the hot water parable" - if we cannot sustain the environment, we cannot sustain ourselves. Therefore, businesses and governments must tackle energy and water use in tandem or risk major disruption.

We need a new framework to guide the way we build the future.

"Our most important innovation is the way we work."--Observations by Curt Carlson (Founder and Managing Partner, the Practice of Innovation)

KUDOS to +vint cerf !!!

OrCam.com - watch how it works and how it can aid the user in daily life (4:33 min.) http://youtu.be/nrWfLAh2T3k

Likewise, in context: What comes after the WWW (CIRCA 1996)?

Ans. Augmenting Google Glasses along with open-source Infomation-In-Places - based on IBM insights on service science, management, and engineering. http://service-science.info/archives/2060

"The WorldBoard concept, originated by Jim Spohrer at Apple - now at IBM is a vision of the "next generation" Internet. WorldBoard is a global, two-way, multi-channel, location specific reality augmenting interface that facilitates innovative ways of associating Web objects (text, images, animations, tools, etc.) with places. These objects can be left for a user or by a user for others who later are at the same location or they can be interacted with collaboratively in real time. Essentially anything that is possible on the Web today is made available at specific locations plus new functionality and modes of interaction not possible or feasible from a desktop computer."

Watch this stunning timelapse of a Feather Duster worm in ultra-macro sequenced time frames!!!
 
A feather duster worm emerges from its tube in this ultra-macro sequence. The timing is adjusted for the animation: the actual sequence took a minute. I speeded up the beginning and the end, leaving the middle at about actual speed.

The original video is in full HD and looks so fantastic!

Re: June 17, 2014 - Elon Musk Takes on Climate Change With Big Bets on Solar, Battery Tech http://mashable.com/2014/06/17/elon-musk-solarcity-batteries/?utm_cid=mash-com-Tw-main-link


Sir Richard Branson - I agree.

KUDOS to Elon Musk's decision for providing open source #TeslaMotors technology and building Gigafactory is now on critical path for safeguarding our sustainability as explained here:

Table 1 compares the water consumption of some traditional and emerging energy generation and production technologies for electric power, transportation fuels, and natural gas. http://www.pennenergy.com/content/dam/Pennenergy/online-articles/2014/04/cornerstone_water3.jpg

Overall, the world energy demand will grow by as much as 30% by 2035, but that water consumption for energy generation and production will increase by 85%.

Therefore, businesses and governments must tackle energy and water use in tandem with open source Tesla technology and Gigafactory or risk major disruption.
 
Pleased #TeslaMotors are freeing up patents to stimulate more innovation in electric car tech. Hope more follow suit. Here's why breaking down the patent wall can stimulate more competition & innovation virg.in/bpw

Watch this stunning timelapse video showing how healthy coral overtime can shake-off sediments.
 
Time-lapse: Coral displacing sediment

Another brilliant sequence from University of Queensland Marine Biologist Daniel Stoupin's recent edit featuring corals captured by a time-lapse camera. This short clip shows how a healthy coral can excavate itself from layers of sediment - this may occur after a storm event pushes sand over the reef.

The foundation addresses the world's Grand Challenges by creating and managing large-scale, high-profile, incentivized prize competitions that stimulate investment in research and development worth far more than the prize itself. It motivates and inspires brilliant innovators from all disciplines to leverage their intellectual and financial capital. According to Dr. Doug Engelbart, the most surprising – yet delightful – change which will ensue is an intelligence amplification process he refers to as ‘bootstrapping.’ Engelbart describes this process as follows: An investment that boosts A Capability provides a one-shot boost. An investment that boosts the B Capability boosts the subsequent rate by which the A Capability increases. And an investment that boosts the C Capability boosts the rate at which the rate of improvement can increase.

This malleability is made possible through the conversion of input documents into an intermediate, or I-file, format. The I-file is then capable of being received in whatever format is called for by the user on the other end. This feature, coupled with tagging which allows for the easy creation of links and easy navigation in documents, will revolutionize the way we create, use, and archive electronic information. These enhanced capabilities would create an informational environment conducive to increased collaboration and exchange between thinkers and problem solvers of different backgrounds, disciplines, talents and perspectives. This increased collaboration and rich exchange would culminate in what Dr. Engelbart calls the collective IQ, the corporate knowledge product of groups of individuals working on shared issues, problems, and concerns. These groups of individuals would be considered improvement communities, and their efforts could be enhanced through networking with other like-minded or similarly situated communities in what Dr. Engelbart calls Networked Improvement Communities ( NICs). The archiving of the knowledge products of these organizations would be Dynamic Knowledge Repositories (DKRs). These dynamic repositories would be ever-evolving, interactive electronic environments designed to allow for the co-evolution of human capabilities and tools. The result of this co-evolution would be a continuous cycle of improvement, culminating in a better understanding of improvement, and resulting in the improvement of the improvement process itself.
Introduction
Re: GlobeProtect.net MacroDynamics™ - is a revolutionary new green and clean technology applying controlled hydrodynamic cavitation vortex pumps (150, 250, and 500 GPM).

A single pump hydrodynamic cavitation vortex action generates millions of powerful ozone (biocide) micro-bubbles from a macrosound spectrum of energies in H2O eventually causing implosions resulting in nano-jets rupturing cell membranes of micro-organizations in temperatures up to 5,000 degrees Celsius and 100 atmospheres of pressure (i.e., hotter than the sun). As a result, it instantaneously disinfects, mixes, blends, and creates magical rarefraction sonochemistries over a range of recycling physio-chemical gradients for purifying and solving water desalination, bio-hazardous waste, biofulels from algae, and CO2 greenhouse problems.
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." -- Arthur C. Clarke, Physicist and science fiction author

"Man must feel the earth to know himself and recognize his values" -- Charles Lindbergh

  • U.S. Patents granted to GlobeProtect.net:
    • A method and apparatus for desalinating seawater and brackish water: US PATENT PENDING # 11/740,752

Technical insights on how GlobeProtect.net Macrosound™ cavitation vortex pump technology works:

Compression and rarefaction waves generate local regions of extremely high and low pressures that disrupt the attractive forces between the molecules.

When water molecules are torn apart with sufficient force during the rarefaction cycle, micro-cavities are formed where aqueous pressure falls below vapor pressure of the liquid. This drives gas out of the solution, and into cavity to form micro-bubbles. This often occurs at "weak spots" (impurities) where gases are dissolved in liquid or trapped in particulates. The ultra sonic field causes these micro-bubbles to grow and oscillate. When the bubble reaches critical size, the compression cycle causes the bubble to implode. This all takes place in a trillionth of a second duration at 5,000 degrees centigrade and one thousand atmospheres.

Mechano-Chemical Activation triggers/intensifies absorptions, and intensified absorption is used to extricate contaminates. Macrosound is applied to treated material through our patented apparatus.

Basically, the contaminated material (e.g., seawater, industrial waste water, saline groundwater, sewage sludge) together with an absorption material (e.g., lignite, lava, pumice) is processed in our machine in one simultaneous process.

The mass of the absorption material is approximately 1 percent of the liquid, between 1kg and 15kg for 1000 liters of liquid, depending on the degree of contamination and purification requirement. After being processed through our machine, the absorbing material, together with the absorbed contaminant is subsequently separated in a decanter or separator. This represents a very low cost and highly efficient extraction of contaminants and toxic materials.

Energy tests have shown significantly less energy consumption for seawater desalination versus traditional reverse osmosis (RO) and Multi-Stage Flash Distillation (MSF):

Technology                               Energy Utilization                       Recovery    Macrosound
Macrosound                               4.2 kWh/1k Gal = 1,370/AF            100%           energy savings
Large RO Desalination Plant     17.8 kWh/ 1k Gal = 5,800/AF          44%             76%
Small RO Desalination Plant     36.8 kWh/ 1k Gal = 12,000/AF        40%             88%
MSF                                           101 kWh/1k Gal = 33,000/AF          40%             96%


Significance for applying the
GlobeProtect.net MacroDynamics™ patented inventions:
As you can see, the new Secretary of Energy Steven Chu wasted no time in predicting the impact that climate change will have in California: vanishing vineyards, fading farms, and major cities abandoned. Accordingly, Dr. Steven Chu is "restoring science to its rightful place" since our focus is on:
"The "Water Footprint" measures human demand on fresh water and complements the Ecological Footprint's measurement of human demand on (other) living resources to give a much fuller footprint.

In the U.S. in the past few years, instead of a sound economy based on products and commerce, they wrote, "We have a financial economy evolving into a casino-like scheme, with money being used to make more money that has little or no connection to underlying functional economic transactions. Without self-imposed limits, the financial system has expanded beyond its means, making it vulnerable to seemingly insignificant disruptions that serve to topple the entire structure like a game of Jenga."


1. Value is created in organizations by providing "technology options" for meeting contingent needs of the enterprise. Value focused organizations provide the primary means for the enterprise to manage uncertainty by generating options for addressing contingent needs.

2. Value streams, or value networks, provide the means for representing value flow and assessing the value of options created.

3. Valuation of technology investments can be addressed by assessing the value of the options created by the value network.

4. Decision making processes - governance - are central in managing the flow of value.

5. Individual and team affiliations and identities affect value flow; dovetailing processes with disciplines is essential.

6. Champions play important, yet subtle roles in value flow; supporting champions is necessary but not sufficient for success.

7. Incentives and rewards affect value flow; aligning these systems with value maximization is critical.


Overall, our aim is to continuously "improve to improve" the future of society through a planet of possibilities which strategically involves scaling anthropogenic sequestration worldwide on Mother Earth, whereby humans mimicking nature learn how to profitably use their own wastes including CO2 in their every day activities, including carbon offsets, credits, and trading of byproducts especially clothes made from bamboo fiber, and building and construction materials made from laminated Bamboo hardwoods and Cement from CO2: A Concrete Cure for Global Warming

"[ ...] The Calera process essentially mimics marine cement, which is produced by coral when making their shells and reefs, taking the calcium and magnesium in seawater and using it to form carbonates at normal temperatures and pressures. "We are turning CO2 into carbonic acid and then making carbonate," Stanford Prof. Constantz says. "All we need is water and pollution [ ...]"
