Google's Project Skybender is similar to Project Loon: it aims to beam internet from up above. Instead of using balloons, though, it will use drones.

+X Rellix This project is probably competing with the balloons. Currently, though, I think the technical aspects of this project haven't even been worked out yet.
Reiterating: I think they don't even know exactly how to make it work.

"The attack comes five weeks after Ukraine's power grid was successfully disrupted in what's believed to be the world's first known hacker-caused power outage.
[...] Researchers have since said the attack was extremely well-coordinated."

Ars Technica: Post corrected throughout to reflect the hack reportedly hit Israel's Electricity Authority. At the moment, there's no indication the attack extended to the country's power grid.

Good for you.  Keep trying.  And I know that I saw a vegetarian section at Target before.  I think we talked about that one time earlier.  Feel free to put a veggie patty between the halves of a bagel for even more protein.  Mexican food has beans, which give you a lot of protein and fiber.  Those mission-style burritos are relatively healthy.  Find what you like and substitute similar veggie things in where you can.  For example, people who like spaghetti with meat sauce can put veggie protein crumbles in the sauce instead of meat.  You're doing pretty well so far...especially with land animals.

Published in November.

"When El Niño kicks into high gear in January, Californians can expect rainstorm after rainstorm, accompanied by plenty of mudslides, flooding, and all the other problems you might expect. So: Stock up on supplies. Buy a goddamn umbrella, and maybe some flood insurance. Most of all, stay vigilant, because things are about to get weird."
We already knew the Godzilla Cthulhu Sauron El Niño of 2015 was gonna be bad. But exactly how bad are we talking? According to the World Meteorological Organization, this year’s El Niño ranks among the three strongest of the past 70 years, and it may become the most powerful El Niño ever recorded.

"Now imagine that you’re poor, and you have a decision in the morning about whether to take the bus or to have breakfast, and you have a decision to make in the day on whether to buy medications or put money aside for rent. Those decisions are incredibly depleting. It’s just an exhausting way to live." - Behavioral economist Dan Ariely

Why does it become more difficult to make good financial decisions when you’re poor?

The more self-sufficient people are, the more the world will be at peace. - If you're going to do something, make it matter.
My Persisting Missions:
  • Cultivate worldwide self-sufficiency
  • Gamify society
  • Design a public platform for collaborative innovation & research

  • The more self-sufficient that people are, the less need and ability there is for people to dominate each other. That's my hypothesis on advancing world peace.
  • There isn't any true good or evil, there is only facilitation or impediment of people surviving and thriving.
  • Most of life demands reliance on assumptions.
    • I prefer to rely on scientifically-validated information --yet, I am weary of the potential for skewed information due to biases, corruption, and extortion.
  • Most people have good  intentions with what they're doing.
    • People almost always fail to recognize that the other side has a point.
  • There is no debate without consensus of fact.
  • Knowledge of the actualities should always be pursued.
  • Impending devastation exhilarates me.
    • I love critical, global issues.
  • If I can't make a dramatic difference to more than a community, I'm wasting my effort.
    • I care about the principal factors that dictate humanity's course.
  • I do not bother with changing things through institutions, I take grassroot action.
    • Institutions are generally too corrupt and inefficient to bother with.
  • I am not interested in most of humanity; though, I do care for every human's quality of life because I believe that every person's life will have an impact on mine.
    • I think most people are too near-sighted, unambitious, credulous, self-righteous, and/or psychotic.
  • I agree with the motto from the game Assassin's Creed "Nothing is true, everything is permitted."  Not everything you're told or think that you know is the absolute truth.
  • "If you're going to do something, make it matter." - Hewlett Packard
My rules to solving problems:
  • Rule 1) Tackle the roots of problems.
  • Rule 2) Ensure a lasting solution.
I want to make the world more awesome (sustainable, safe, inspiring, equitable, economical, and fun) for everyone!

Catalysts for this change:

  • Cultivating people's knowledge, innovation, collaboration, and self-sufficiency.
  • Creating immersive, real-world games (which, preferably, would benefit society in more ways than just positive emotional states).
Millions die and suffer living every day -things may never be perfect.
  1. What would you do differently if a loved one was one of them?
  2. What would you think if your typical way of life suddenly dissolved? (*cough, cough* War, Pandemic, Famine, Theft, Global Financial Crises, Superstorms)
Join the billions.

  • Save the World Projects (If there are any that fit the style that I work in :3)
  • Discussion
  • Ethics
  • Civics
  • Politics (Only for staying informed; I prefer DIY change.)
  • Getting Educated: Web Articles, MOOCs, Television
  • Technology
  • Business
I associate with those who:
  • Are trying to make a difference.
  • See big pictures
  • Enjoy thinking
  • Deliberate
  • Have healthy skepticism
I would like to have a group of people who will hang out together as roommates (nearly) every day until we die on each other.
I can't live without a sense of fraternity.

What I typically do in my downtime:
  • Tech, Local, & World News
  • Watching Informative Videos (PBS & YouTube)
  • Google+
  • Planning or Organizing Something, or Daydreaming about doing it.
  • Playing Videogames
  • Listening to Music
  • Sulking over Friends, Money, and Mankind

Places Travelled:
Oklahoma, US; Arkansas, US.

Causes that I'm passionate about:

Anthropogenic Climate Change 
Vegetarian/Veganism (Animal Rights)
Equal Human Rights

American Oligarchy
Insincere Politics
Conformity to Social Norms
Inappropriate Use of Antibiotics
