Tech Wiz Hodge Podge day…

I posted a question on MyLot yesterday about winning a lottery ticket, and now you are part of the team going to be part of the first Mars Colony. It was something that I used to do with kids all the time when I was teaching. Seeing what children think is important, always lets you see and understand where they are. It is also hilarious at times. Anyway if you want to participate in that the link is here. I started using Mylot a couple of months ago and other than a couple of missteps it has been interesting. It is not a place for polls it more for questions and interactions. I am using it as an idea shaping place for my family history and technology posts here on Virily. It is also fun to wander around and interact with some very interesting questions.

Today is a conference call a day at work. I am never quite sure when it is ok to schedule meetings back to back to back thing came into vogue. I know in the last three companies I’ve worked for they do that on Friday’s. Not every Friday well most Friday’s. No solutions, no proposals, just bringing up a point.

Hodge Podge for the rest of today.

  1. In the White House released Climate Change report, there was not a single mention of the global warming problem. The issue isn’t global warming. Global warming and cooling happen all the time throughout the history of our planet. It isn’t about; it is about how fast the warming is occurring at this point. The reality of warming is this – if it is warmer in Anartica, by default that doesn’t mean it is warmed elsewhere. When you consider the amount of polar ice that has to be melted in bringing the temperature up, most of that energy is consumed in the melting.
  2. Permafrost and other components of the far north and far south are retreating. Where once permafrozen (always frozen soil) was just below the surface in parts of Alaska it is now deeper than in the past.
  3. There are no longer reputable scientific dissenting voices around climate change.

I also posted a question about climate change on MyLot. I cannot tell you how angry the rest of the world is with the US. I cannot blame them, but it was interesting to gauge and ultimately consider the reaction.

There are some pending reviews I need to post. I promise I will get to those as we close out the year.

I’ll end my Hodge Podge day with three quick things.

  1. I love every comment on Virily, even if I disagree with you!
  2. The conversation we have here is valuable!
  3. Thank you to everyone that reads my posts!

I am a long time blogger and technology poster.I focus on what is possible, but I also try to see what is coming. In recent years I have been focused on sharing the memories of my family, as part of my Family History Project.

  1. As I recall, the weather was different in my country, more strange and unusual than a few years ago. Flooding is increasingly common and in more areas (but this issue can also be partly due to reduced trees) At least before the 2000s, I had never heard of a tornado in my country. Well, my memory could be wrong.

  2. my eyes got opened fully when we were affected by a typhoon and we were stuck in our town for a week, no one can leave and get inside. This was 2010 I think.

    that’s the time I realized that we are very much affected by the Global warming. imagine after the flood we saw a lot of plastic bags and trash caught in the electric wires. and you know that our electric wires are connected by poles
