U.S. Senate Healthcare FAIL

U.S. Capitol

Well, the Senate is proposing a bill to give the USA universal healthcare. Their solution? Force everyone to buy health insurance.

It's yet another in a neverending chain of actions that prove the U.S. Government is nothing more than the strongarm for the giant corporations. with every action it takes designed to funnel more of our money into the pockets of the banking, oil and insurance companies.

Hey IDIOTS, if you're supplying healthcare to everyone what do we need insurance for? Why are you including the middleman? Take our tax money and apply it directly to the hospitals, clinics and doctors where it belongs. It's called

Socialized? Yes, I said it. Socialized. We already have a socialized retirement plan. It's called Social Security. Everyone seems to like that.

First GM Human Embryo Created

5 day old embryo (blastocyst)
A 5 day old Human embryo.

I have only just today learned of this story, nearly a year after the fact. I would have thought that there would have been a huge media circus surrounding this story. Apparently not.

In May of 2008 a team of scientists at Cornell University in New York produced the world's first GM (genetically modified) Human embryo. The embryo was destroyed after five days.
- Times Online

Modified embryos, if allowed to develop, might provide superior disease resistance or eliminate genetic disorders. And the changes made would be permanent, not just for the person that embryo grows into, but also for that person's children and grandchildren. But there are other, more controversial, changes that could be made. Physical attributes, intelligence, even personality traits could be modified. Is this something we should be playing around with?

Solving the Energy, Climate and Economic Crises

New Electric Infrastructure

In today's roundup of articles I'd like to focus on the opportunity we have to solve the energy crisis, the climate crisis and the economic crisis right now. It involves four factors.

1. The current economic crisis and the need to spend stimulus money to fix it.
- Salon

2. The United States currently gets about 1% of it's energy from wind. Not very impressive. But there is enough potential wind energy out there to power the world five times over.
- Wired

3. Wind turbine technology is currently available and ready to be implemented on a massive scale.
- ABC News

4. Shai Agassi's plan to switch all of our cars over to electric power.

So, let's take some of the hundreds of billions of dollars of stimulus money and spend it on wind power and an electric car infrastructure. We could be 100% wind powered if we just took the initiative and did it. The benefits are obvious.
  • Dramatically cleaner air as we will get rid of both car exhaust and fossil fuel burning power plants.
  • Creating jobs and stimulating the economy.
  • No more dependence on foreign oil.
  • A big help in the fight against climate change.
  • A drastic reduction in energy prices. (which will also stimulate the economy)
If President Obama has the foresight and the intestinal fortitude to build a new electric infrastructure he could lead the country into a clean, brightly lit and prosperous 21st century. Or, if he lets us continue on our current path, he could just watch as it all goes up in smoke. I hope and pray he chooses the former.

The Search for Earth-Like Planets is On

The Search for Earth-Like Planets is On

Something that has me very excited is the prospect that we may be discovering, within the next few years, Earth-like planets, about the same size as earth, with similar atmospheres, similar temperatures, and possibly even life.

It shouldn't be difficult to find Earth-like planets given the new estimate of how common they are.
- National Geographic

And we've already found one. Although, when they say "habitable" it's in the broadest sense of the term as we don't yet know what gasses are in it's atmosphere, or if it actually does have water on it's surface. We only know that it's in the right place, and could have water.
-National geographic

On March 6, 2009 the Kepler planet-hunting telescope was launched into orbit. You can read all about Kepler in this article. They also have a very well done video there as well. This article also states exactly how many Earth-like planets we should expect to find in our galaxy, a mind-blowing 100 billion.
Kepler spacecraft will hunt for planets that are just right for life
- guardian.co.uk

"By 2014 headlines could be announcing the first tentative evidence of life beyond our solar system."
- Discover

We could even find Earth-like moons around gas giants that orbit in other stars habitable zones.

No Stone Unturned: Strategies for Cash Management in Hard Times

While many mid-size companies have healthy balance sheets and solid credit histories, the cost of funding for nearly all businesses is likely to rise in the near term.

This survey report by CFO Research Services in collaboration with American Express revealed a notable shift in focus among finance executives as their companies prepare for the changing times. Mid-size company CFOs and their teams are now paying closer attention to short-term cash management. In response, many finance executives at mid-size companies are now leading a movement to get "back to the basics." But it's not that finance executives are being called on to do less—instead, they are re-sorting their priorities to uncover every opportunity to manage expenses and bolster working capital.

Through this survey report, explore mid-size senior finance executives' short-term cash management concerns, plans, and priorities in light of current financial-market realities.
