Eco + Tech: Desalinating Ocean Water To Offset Glacier Melt

This post could even be an enviro stand-up comedy routine. The two juxtaposed issues are Desalination Processes and Glacier Melt / rising sea levels. I’m thinking: “But can’t we just sip it down?” Here are two major newsmakers lately regarding desalination: MIT and a Huntington Beach, California plant. Researchers at MIT have created a portableContinue reading “Eco + Tech: Desalinating Ocean Water To Offset Glacier Melt”

Tech + Health: Ensuring Product Safety With Machine Learning

“… it is not feasible to test for all 900 chemicals,” says the product inquiry reply. I don’t think that’s true, though. Besides, once you decide to find a way, you’ll probably find a way. Modern machine learning can make such large scale testing possible. In fact, that is a thing — Large Scale MachineContinue reading “Tech + Health: Ensuring Product Safety With Machine Learning”

Tech + Biophysics: Using Molecular Vibration To Arrange Matter ++ RE-POST of “Tables of molecular vibrational frequencies, Vol. 1-2”

All the conceptual information Necessary to make huge strides in nondestructive sustainable technologies is already out there. These volumes of molecular vibrational frequencies are exhibits A and B. I’ve Been posting a lot about the frontier of sound and light technologies and this is a continuation of that. Molecular vibration techniques have application from medicineContinue reading “Tech + Biophysics: Using Molecular Vibration To Arrange Matter ++ RE-POST of “Tables of molecular vibrational frequencies, Vol. 1-2””

Industry + Public Health: On California Proposition 65

I’m not amused at the irony anymore in seeing these stickers everywhere. Although I’m glad they are there to inform, there have to be higher standards for consumer goods. Let’s get real. Is it always aging causing cancer and other irregularities, or is it the known carcinogens in everyday products? What might be minuscule exposureContinue reading “Industry + Public Health: On California Proposition 65”

Tech + Evolution: Exploring Network Intelligence

It’s not unreasonable to say that networks that continue to grow increase in intelligence — that’s more or less how we got here. What began as elemental cosmic forces brewed up a concoction of microorganisms that then banded together to create larger and increasingly more complex organisms that branch off and do different things, andContinue reading “Tech + Evolution: Exploring Network Intelligence”

Eco + Finance: Photosynthetic Money — Hard Currency Meets Carbon Removal

There’s so much money in carbon removal these days that even money itself could get in the game by becoming part of the new wave of green materials science. After all, there’s still plenty of physical currency. And The US Department of Energy has invested a lot into artificial photosynthesis R&D: https://www.energy.gov/articles/department-energy-announces-100-million-artificial-photosynthesis-research That’s right —Continue reading “Eco + Finance: Photosynthetic Money — Hard Currency Meets Carbon Removal”
