Trend Domains

We’re almost to our Annual Outlook report.  As part of the process we employ a number of “thinking tools” and ways of looking into the future that anyone can use.

The future, understand, is all about perceptual domains.  Not everyday stuff, certainly, but with the pressure off for another couple of days, it’s always good to kick back, try on some new mental finery and be better equipped for whatever comes next.

The further reason to do this becomes evident after a few headlines and the morning’s ChartPack.

Durables, UI Filings, Charts

This being a semi-vacation week, we’re keeping on point with breaking economic news.  Since people are moving around the country in huge numbers (55+ million) for Thanksgiving tomorrow.

Our consigliere had an earlier-than-expected arrival due to “dueling Garmin’s.”  Yep – sitting in the driveway here, one routes his return via Athens, Texas while the other one heads through Frankston and via Tyler, Texas.

One of the many problems of software are instances like this of “digital inconsistencies.

 Which doesn’t matter much at one level (both units would have gotten him here – or home for that matter).

But, as extensible thinking intrudes, we wonder what the implications are for A.I. down the road?  Schizoputera? Dueling AA.I.’s with humans in the squeeze?

We kick off with a couple of news releases just out and then review the ChartPack which is pretty darned interesting.

Collapse Check Due

Disaster at the docks is our urgent concern because “me-too financial media” doesn’t have Clue #1 about economics. While the government offers lots of “Offishul figgers” we like to run parallel private indicators.  So this morning, a quick glance over in that direction as we spool up toward holiday madness.

With less than a week to the “real” Black Friday, a look at retailing and some thoughts on how to sensibly spend are in order, too.

But not before a few headlines and our ChartPack…

PLE – Personal Life Extension

Since both of our reports next week will deal with charts only (holiday), I wanted to share some research that you’ll find very interesting. 

It’s all arisen out of my latest novel (about 50-pages into the writing part – but life intrudes – often!) “Ancient Children” is its title.

The plot involves an exceptional aging couple who – for reasons that vex a Social Security fraud investigator.  Because the hero and heroine in the book look upwards of 50-years younger than they should look by modern standards.

While working out the plot line, it struck me that I’d never seen a really good list of all the ways people can (but only if it’s turned into a personal discipline with a series of habits) turn extreme anti-aging into a reality.

As a result, since many people find themselves with a little “extra time on their hands” around the holidays, there’s enough concept and application detail in this morning’s report to comprise a very useful “getting started” approach to PLE – Personal Life Extension –  research..

Yes.  If you hadn’t figured it, Elaine and I are already well past the “fixing to get ready” part of this.  Our daily routines are loosely based on following the concepts we’ll outline today.

Along with the headlines and ChartPack, of course!

Spoiler Alert: We review more than 30 techniques and ideas!  This is a two-cupper…
