The Coming World Of Abundance

In twenty years will the world be better than it is now or worse? According to author and futurist Dr. Peter H. Diamandis it could be far better than you think and more abundant than can be imagined. When one hears about this idea of a world of abundance immediately the thought of our worlds limited natural resources comes to mind. How could such a world ever come into being when our planet has finite resources that are too often exploited, fought over and in many instances simply squandered. The media bombards us with negative images and messages of a world on the brink of collapse, but these messages may only tell part of the story. Many of the technological advancements achieved over the past two decades have vastly empowered individuals globally in ways that would not have been impossible just a few decades ago. In his new book Abundance: The Future Is Better Than You Think Diamandis argues that the solutions to the world’s problems will need to come from people like you, by leveraging these powerful emergent technologies.

Take Action

the freedoms to assemble and associate also apply in cyberspace; in our time, people are as likely to come together to pursue common interests online as in a church or union hall. Together, the freedoms of expression, assembly and association online comprise what I have called the freedom to connect.  The United States supports this freedom for people everywhere, and we have called on other nations to do the same.” Hillary Clinton

 

Nasa’s Growing Interest In Low Energy Nuclear Reactions

LENR or low energy nuclear reactions is a promising area of energy research perused by a small number of scientists around the world.  LENR is in essence “cold fusion” the term is used because it carries far less historic baggage. Recently scientists at the Langley Research Center posted a video about NASA’s interest and research in LENR. It seems now that if the growing body of research proves viable the worlds energy problems (as well as many others) could take a dramatic turn for the better. According to Dennis Bushnell, Chief Scientist, NASA, Langley there are numerous applications that could emerge as a result of LENR research including;

– Superb light weight power / energy sources for home, industrial and space applications
– Reduced Low Earth Orbit and in space propulsion weights / costs
– Terrestrial nuclear power and energy without Radiation protection or safety issues
– Enables the development of quiet electrically powered VTOL aircraft and extended range electric vehicles.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, according to Bushnell; “depending upon the TBD performance, appears to be capable of Revolutionizing Aerospace across the board. No other single technology even comes close to the potential impacts of LENR upon Agency Missions” (Bushnell)

Stem Cell Spray Gun Heals Burns

Second degree burns are painful, debilitating and difficult to heal but a new technology from researchers at the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine promises to change all that. It’s called the skin gun, developed by Joerg Gerlach, MD, PhD and Professor in the Department of Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh it uses the patient’s own stem cells to treat and heal damaged skin according to Gerlach;  “What we’re doing is taking the cells, isolating them, and, in the same procedure on the same day, we’re putting the cells onto the wound,” Dr. Gerlach says. “The progenitor cells can act immediately. The most critical cells are present, and we are using those cells right away from the patient. We just need to take care that we are distributing the cells nicely over the wound.” (MIRM) The skin gun is part of a three phase skin burn therapy that has proven successful in early trials. Recovery time is generally about four days.
