Biochemistry + Health: Hair Is Made Of Valuable Elements Including Stem Cells

Check out this structural diagram. Looks like something alive and important to me. Looks like a muscle fiber diagram! Perhaps because hair contains nucleic acid and mitochondrial DNA. And DNA is some of the most advanced technology around. Hair is no more dead than the soil. It’s composed of fibrous keratin, carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogenContinue reading “Biochemistry + Health: Hair Is Made Of Valuable Elements Including Stem Cells”

Home + Health: Completely Natural Moisturizer & Exfoliant

Flax Oil Trehalose Collagen powder That’s it — very easy to mix at home. Feels great too. The trehalose sugar here acts as the exfoliant. And this can be used on the entire body, then rinsed off. And keep in mind, similar substances can be combined for this effect as well. I’m finding this combinationContinue reading “Home + Health: Completely Natural Moisturizer & Exfoliant”

Health + Performance: Taking The Cold Plunge

On the first hot summer day here in Boston, Cryomed on Boylston Street offered a cold plunge tub on the sidewalk in front of their store and after I saw the e-mail decided to go for it. I’d never done a cold plunge or ice bath before but I’d heard and read about many healthContinue reading “Health + Performance: Taking The Cold Plunge”

Health + Home: Completely Nourishing Toothpaste

As it turns out, making toothpaste that is completely nourishing for your teeth and mouth is not hard. The bentonite clay mixed with water provides an excellent paste texture and is rich in minerals. Keep this as the base. Further texturizing and exfoliating, if you will, is the baking soda or sodium bicarbonate, a wellContinue reading “Health + Home: Completely Nourishing Toothpaste”

RE-POST: “Craft using an inertial mass reduction device” [Google Patents] aka The Dawn Of Deep Space Travel

“Matter, energy, and spacetime are all emergent constructs which arise out of the fundamental framework that is the vacuum energy state.” — Read on patents.google.com/patent/US10144532B2/en Yes, this 2018 active U.S. Navy patent in part represents the new era of deep space travel. What a perfect example of innovation acceleration, out of some necessity, as humanityContinue reading “RE-POST: “Craft using an inertial mass reduction device” [Google Patents] aka The Dawn Of Deep Space Travel”

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””

Quantum Evolution: Human Intelligence & Relativity

The main point of this article is this: Regardless of IQ test or other fixed models, intelligence — including human intelligence — is always developing. And development is not fixed. Generally and Experientially, it doesn’t take a scientific study to figure this out. It takes reason. Consider “non-linear” quantum physics and related and other newContinue reading “Quantum Evolution: Human Intelligence & Relativity”

Eco + Design: Proposal For Draw 7 Park Urban Forest

In recently pitching the urban forest idea to the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, I’m inspired by 70’s environmental and landscape art pioneer Agnes Denes and current green architect Vincent Callebaut, whose works are absolutely amazing. Their visions are both practical, harmonious and beautiful. And it seems the time has come for ideas likeContinue reading “Eco + Design: Proposal For Draw 7 Park Urban Forest”

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”

Olympic Lifting & Beyond: How I Boost Muscle Recovery In Training

1. Sleep Generous amounts of it and even the occasional unabashed hibernation! This is a vital means of regeneration and recovery. I do best with a more traditional rhythm, when I’m more or less following the sun. And remember, the mental rest is just as important. By now you may have heard that nervous systemContinue reading “Olympic Lifting & Beyond: How I Boost Muscle Recovery In Training”

Art + Design: New Studio Shangri-La Hotel Collection

The latest and developing collection is inspired by just that — development. These pieces are urban textural studies that are interesting to look at and enhance ambiance. There is a definite rough yet modern esthetic here that I’m going for, with emphasis on texture and materials. These photographs are intended for the large market ofContinue reading “Art + Design: New Studio Shangri-La Hotel Collection”

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”
