After Moore's Law: Predicting The Future Beyond Silicon Chips : All Tech Considered : NPR
"A lot of different ideas that we have thought up over the years have been put on a shelf because we could always rely on getting smaller and faster transistors. So now it's time to go back through the library of things that we've thought of."

Physician to parents: You're doing it wrong | www.wsbtv.com
"According to Sax, parents should focus on helping children develop skills such as self-control, humility and conscientiousness, meaning they think of people other than themselves. Those things are the biggest predictors of future success in adulthood, he said, not education or affluence." ..................... children-teens = The tip about putting screens in public places and/or installing Watchdog whatever. I dunno. I think that only prolongs things. If the kid is going to look at porn, they will eventually do it. Also I never would have spent as much time on the computer if it were in a public room. I would have no career today. I'd literally have no skills.

Study: Limiting screen time improves kids’ lives
"The Teskes’ thinking falls in line with a new Iowa State University psychology study that finds parents who take more control of their children’s screen time — TV, computers and other devices — are raising youths who sleep better, achieve high marks in school and avoid behavior problems and health ailments such as obesity." ========================= I originally saw this story on Yahoo, but with their history of removing content or changing URLs after a certain amount of time, I was scared to bookmark it.

Voracious Worm Evolves to Eat Biotech Corn Engineered to Kill It - Wired Science
It always happens: Because people can't see the process unfolding in front of their eyes, they they think it's not happening. .................. Same with global warming, the war on drugs, poverty, and so many other things. ------------------- Not even sure why I tagged this "counterintuitive" because it's fairly straightforward, unless you're a 'head in the sand' idiot.

Uh, Did Your Refrigerator Just Send Me an Internet Virus? | Entrepreneur.com
Smart devices may be an easier target than traditional computers because of their ubiquity and lack of traditional security measures taken with regular PCs ============================================= ""No more than 10 emails were initiated from any single IP address, making the attack difficult to block based on location -- and in many cases, the devices had not been subject to a sophisticated compromise," Proofpoint says. "Instead, misconfiguration and the use of default passwords left the devices completely exposed on public networks, available for takeover and use.""

Hidden Inflection Points - Thomas Edison did not invent the light bulb
"I love the story of the light bulb. We often credit Edison for its invention, but few know that his famous practical, inexpensive incandescent bulb was essentially an iteration of another light bulb invented a year earlier by a British scientist by the name of Joseph Swan. And even fewer people may realize that by the time Edison “invented” them in the late 1870s, electrically powered light bulbs had been in slow, steady development for decades."

VIOLETPLANET: A Global Consciousness Project: The Machine That Could Tell The Future
me-stuff = "For what his experiments appear to demonstrate is that while we may all operate as individuals, we also appear to share something far, far greater – a global consciousness. Some might call it the mind of God. ‘We’re taught to be individualistic monsters,’ he says. ‘We’re driven by society to separate ourselves from each other. That’s not right. We may be connected together far more intimately than we realise.'"
