Six Stories Of Mars That Will Affect You

Japanese Space Agency (JAXA), NASA, and US Air Force formed a combined military air force or space force (the Japanese preference) in 2015. Plans are to begin operations to remove space debris (thousands of trashed items) sometime between early 2017 and 2019 (reference: hub.me/agIV8).

Japanese friends in the business call the aerospace frontier The Fourth Battlefield – according to Kelsey-Campbell Dollaghan in GISMODO under a heading at “Star Wars.”

It is a good place to gather additional tourism dollars as well – the Moon, Mars, Jupiter…

How do you feel about a combined Air Force?

The two nations have several aerospace projects already in spacecraft design and spacecraft component manufacture, forecasting hurricanes, and other space age concepts.

Many projects are ongoing or set to begin in the near future in the space above Earth. Find out more here. Captain Video, Space Patrol, and Star Trek are becoming more real than ever.

The USA has many popular New Year’s Resolutions that most of the population makes year after year. Unfortunately, many of these resolutions are broken early on, during January.

The Top Three New Year’s Resolutions in the United States all involve controlling one’s weight and money. Both of sandwich-696417_960_720these elements have become big problems in American culture and they appear in broadcast news nearly every day.

Some of the other Top 14 have to do with eating and drinking as well!

Maybe this will be the new year in which America can solve some of the underlying problems that cause these scourges of obesity and poverty. Check out all 14 resolutions at:

New Year’s Resolutions – Fun Or Torture?

An enlarging technical college in Dayton, Ohio is offering a Short-Term Technical Certificates in 24 to 25 hours of class time.This is all part of the growing business in the Ohio Space Corridor that is now stretching into Indiana.

The certificate allows its holders to quickly secure entry-level technical positions in the field of the Helper Drone manufacturing and operation – search and rescue, agriculture, medicine and other supply deliveries, and other positive uses of drones.

Organized scientific projects join with Research Triangle Park professionals to link the Roanoke Lost Colonists and current descendants of early Native American peoples they met in. Some of the researchers are descendants, themselves.

The Croatan People are not extinct, either. Their descendants live in North Carolina today. 

Evidence has been found in old and new maps of the area, archaeological artifacts, a buried fort on the 42-mile long Hatteras Island, and DNA markers, as well as oral histories of the descendants of mixed marriages among the English and the Croatan and other Native Peoples beginning in the late 1580s.

Americans were accustomed to the Bread Line nd the Unemployment Line back in the 1930s, but we’re having these today as well.

Some employees lose their jobs through no fault of their own. However, some other times, there is cause for termination.

Dishonesty, evasion, or lack of integrity on the job can be the culprit, as well as lack of training and misunderstandings. It is important to be honest, straightforward, and forthcoming on the job with your management and then to insist on proper training and fair treatment as well.

How will fast food as an industry handle the increase to a $15.00 per hour Federal Minimum Wage?

First off, many will simply close down. Others will limit their menus, offer additional or longer periods of Drive-Thru times and close the dining room early or go to All-Drive-Thru service. and some will raise menu prices too high.

McDonald’s has found that tactics that helped them absorb the 2009 Federal Minimum Wage Increase are not working now. Because of this, the company allegedly plans to eliminate part of its human crew members with robots – but, this is really still a rumor. Those few remaining humans would  be robotics technicians and that is a good thing, since that work requires more skills and a higher salary to go with them.

Will a Phoenix Arizona McDonald’s go all-robot soon? Probably not, but it’s fun to think about. After all, sci-fi author Arthur C. Clarke was the first to think up communications satellites (ComSats) and we have them all over the near-Earth cosmos now!

US National Book Festival, Historic Words And Reading Education

From Native American poetry to Classics, songs, and graphic novels, how can we not be proud of America’s literary development? Come celebrate literacy and literature of all sorts in DC this September 5, 2015 from 9am – 10 pm. Free admission!

This year’s festival is a tribute to the 200th Anniversary of Thomas Jefferson’s donation of all of his personal papers and books for the Thomas Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress.  During the War of 1912 – 1814, the British burned 3,000 books belonging to the US Congress and took 10,000 American military and civilians captive, jailing them at Dartmoor prison in England. it was a horrible time.

Thomas Jefferson offered his personal library to replace those burned volumes, but it took us until 1815 – a full year after the war was over – to gain the release of all of our prisoners. Today, the British and filks all over the UK came to our National Book festival to speak, to sign books, and to visit the kiosks.

Times change, but books are always good.

A long time women’s health agency may be preventing the creation of new Health and Medical jobs in the Obstetrics and Transplantation fields by handing over aborted fetal tissues and organs to researchers and people in the market for new human parts.

This is still an allegation at this point, but a possibility.

Another possibility is that PP will be defunded and all those jobs will be lost.

How many jobs might be lost to such an alleged undercover system? — Likely thousands of positions that America needs for its job seekers from health aides through nurses, med techs, nurse practitioners and physicians.

During July 2015, international media news and two undercover YouTube videos of a tipsy PP Executive declaring she wants a high-priced sports car alleged that Planned Parenthood sells aborted tissues and organs. People at the agency insist that they charge only transportation costs. Some reporters called for an audit of the standard price schedules of that transportation and a match of them to PP’s accounts receivables numbers.

Will the figures match and what about back door sales, those sales not recorded and “off the books?”

We’re not accusing Planned Parenthood of larceny, but the public is demanding to know. PP should willingly submit to an external audit and an investigation that looks for off the record transactions.

A second part of the allegation is that illegal partial birth abortions are used to obtain whole organs rather than destroyed organs for sale and this is unacceptable.

A thorough investigation is necessary, although undercover videos0 are demoralizing, especially the PP Executive under the influence, even if comments may be out of context or perhaps a bad joke.

Look for more conjecture in the build up to Election 2016.

The world of psychology is in upheaval since in July 2015, it was revealed via international news that the American Psychological Association may have been complicit with torture used in interrogations at places such as Abu Graib. How will this affect the mental health industry in the future? First, APA immediately notified all members what had happened, as revealed in depth in an analysis known at the Hoffman report. Several top office holders in APA retired early or stepped down from their positions and an internal investigation and house straightening began. I commend the APA leadership for tackling the situation immediately. I respect the organization, especially for developing several divisions within its working to advocate and support any and all who have been marginalized, abused, and yes, even tortured in the past. APA seems always to take immediate action to right wrongs. Back in 1947 under the APA Presidency of Carl Rogers, The Ohio State University psychology department temporarily lost accreditation for irregularities in research conduct. The university department readily earned back its accreditation. APA was fast to right the problem. Current problems include a holdover of abuse and marginalization of women and minorities of several types and APA will advocate until these situations end. Psychology is still a magnificent field to enter and I hope current news stories about interrogation terrors will not harm the field. No organization or country can watch all its members all the time, though Heaven knows, some try. When a problem emerges and an organization takes care of it, give them some respect. Thanks, and happy job seeking!
