New Super Sonic Jet Is Green?

     Since the days of Ronald Reagan's presidency the talk has been that of passenger jetliners that break the gravity of earth to jump from New York to Los Angeles in an hour. How about from New York to London in an hour? NASA has teamed up with Lockheed Martin to do just that. The "Green Machine"pictured at the left has a specially designed tail to counter the sound of the sonic boom. The streamlined body will pierce the atmosphere to lower the gravity fuel guzzling constraints, increase speed with special engines, and significantly cutting down on flight times and fuel consumption as a result. With the announcements that China high speed rails could reach speeds of a thousand miles an hour soon, commercial planes as we know them will advance or go extinct.

New LED Lighting Helps Photosynthesis Of Plants At Lower Costs!

     The company, Illumitex, has developed a new LED light that improves the plant's photo-morphogenesis response at a lower cost to green houses and businesses that grow plants indoors. This LED lighting distributes a more uniform spectrum of  necessary dynamic wavelengths for plant growth. Utilizing these lights will enable indoor plant businesses to increase the plant density under the lights to increase production while not sacrificing quality.
     A person has to wonder, if we will ever have the ability to replace the sun for plant growth? Could we better utilize the sun's contribution for plant and animal growth?  Could we understand the needs of the plants, then grow bigger, better plants, faster and contribute to the better health and life of herbivores? Could we speed up plant maturity if we could extend the amount and intensity of the light spectrum necessary for the plant growth? Is this part of the answer to providing the food for upcoming expanding populations of humans?

Tough Times for The Millions Of Uninsured Americans

Millions of Americans don't have healthcare coverage. There are many of reasons why this dilemma exists. America lags behind it's North American free trade partners in this area and expects its employers to compete globally with this handicap. It's trading partners, Canada and Mexico both have national healthcare, that allow the government to negotiate lower healthcare cost solutions. With the large pool of its recipients the government can negotiate lower prescription costs. It regulates procedure costs. It can legislate healthy solutions to affect the healthcare costs because of political leverage. The end result is the government of the people work together to lower costs. It can take the high cost of healthcare monkey off the backs of the few remaining companies trying to provide for the healthcare of its employees. America's healthcare system has been a hodge-podge of fly by seat of your pants solutions set up to allow insurance companies to legally steal financial nest eggs from hard working Americans. Now powerful Insurance lobbyists have partnered with the Republican party, to  implement a full assault on the Obama Care bill before it can fully address the economy crushing problem. Please support efforts to stop this foolishness. The down turn in this economy has brought down several companies with great innovation ideas. In the mean time Americans struggle to find answers. Here is a government site to help you find answers: Help with healthcare!

Financial Crisis, What Innovative Ideas Can We Do?

     In 2008, following 8 years of Republican polices, the United States experienced it's second worst market crash and financial disaster since the Great Depression in the 1930's. Similarities existed between the two crashes in that the financial polices favoring the wealthy classes.  Policies were implemented in the Republican George W. Bush of the 2000 - 2008 presidency very similar to that of the Herbert Hoover just before the Great Depression. It is hard to state  the case by over simplifying, but the evidence is over whelming that in a capitalistic society, prosperity only happens if equal opportunity to financial abilities are to all classes. Both presidencies favored the wealthy, shifting wealth from the lower classes to the affluent. It's known by the sound byte as, "trickle down."
     Former President J. F. Kennedy stated that a rising tide floats all ships, which simply means if people on the bottom have wealth to spend then everyone gets richer. The Fed has been taking hits because it is trying some desperate attempts, by changing fiscal policy, to make the redistribution of wealth happen. If you are a Republican this seems horrible to change government policy to help the lower class. Republican means less government, even though the devastating financial crisis, was directly caused by their changes in fiscal and government policies.
    2008, ushered in President Obama who's mantra was "change,"however everyone involved in innovation, knows it's one thing to come up with ideas, it's another to get the buy in. The Republicans were able to divert the targeted concern of middle class devastation to that of United States debt concern. The public seemed to become easily diverted, and gave the Republicans the control back in 2010. The Republicans immediately tried to push back on economic stimulus and concentrated on cutting any government spending. Their cuts threw more government employees into the already large unemployment lines. So any chance of forward action to fix the financial crisis was stopped. The Republicans are trying to blame President Obama for the economy now.
     How could this happen? America was originally the front runner in the world economy, however other countries in the world are gaining prestige. The world is redesigning itself economically because of America's inability to fix itself. I have to address this in this matter because Republicans like Reid Ribble have chose to advertise on my blog. His agenda against change is wrong. It is the Republican Congressman like him that are preventing the innovation that could fix the economic mess we are seeing in America today. Innovation does not come by doing nothing and fighting change. Innovation is giving change a chance. It is the very key element that continues to move the human condition forward, from the horse carriage to the high speed rail and beyond.

Innovative Cancer Dectives With Long Tails!

     Cancer research and insurance companies are looking for less invasive but equally accurate testing methods to determine if a patient has cancer or not. They have discovered that the body has other indicators other than just visual  radioactive scan photos of cancer invasion.
     One company has discovered that women with breast cancers, have changes that take place in their hair. Soon they will be able to test a persons hair to determine the case for breast cancer. To read more check out Green Tech Cancer Innovations.
     Recently they have found that a person gives off different smells with different cancers. They have found that dogs can detect these different smells to a degree of accuracy. The excitement is not only is it possible for the dogs to help us out, but very effective electronic sniffers will (in the future), detect your cancer status as you walk into the dental or insurance offices.

New Style Football Helmets Make It A Safer Sport

The new smart helmets used in collegiate and professional football games are adding safety to the game. The new multi-cushion design was tested in military helmets to enable military personnel to survive extreme impact. The many air channels provide extra cooling. The face guards are mounted with the idea to give the wearer a wider view. The communication system mounted in the helmet is also equipped with a temperature sensor. The sidelines monitor the players temperature to prevent heat stroke. The communication system enables the players to hear the coach which has access to the skybox , other coaches, offense and defense players. With the increase of head injuries in this very physically abusive sport, a smart move was made for smart helmets. The $300 price without the communication system makes them out of reach for the High School and local recreational players.
