May 8, 2013 — Bet you’ve never thought about this one: In event of a serious national disaster, would you even be able to marginally “recover” your home, whip up a temporary shelter, or maybe craft a simple cabin? Or, have you become some overly dependent on power tools? Turns out there are some really ugly reasons that houses of old were built with nails instead of screws. Have we lost sight of something and been spoiled to a new level of rotten not knowing how to “bang nails?” It’s a damn fine point to ponder while we wait for the market to stop going Viagra on us….and we’ll do that just as soon as I’ve had my coffee and a roll in the headlines.
May 4, 2013 — The myth of the “free press” and so-called Fourth Estate is quickly leaving; disappearing into a cloud of software. In its place is a new way of generating “the news” which Americans depend on for their decision-making. I hate to report this development, but real humans with first-hand knowledge of events they’re reporting on are quickly becoming historical relics. In their place is a new class of news-writing software. Press release in one end, public opinion out the other. But before we detail such a depressing (and distinctly anti-human) developments (and how it impacts events those of us in the fledgling field of predictive linguistics) what we have for an appetizer this morning is scenic tour through this morning’s sorties and funfire, generated by humans aided increasingly by HAL 9000’s offspring.
May 1, 2013 — I don’t write much about motivation, since our focus (including this morning’s report) is usually on the more mundane tasks in life – like making money! But a few subscribers have asked for a some insights into how get – and stay – highly motivated. To be sure, there are variances between people, but some generalizations can be made (which is what science is about, eh?) so we can sketch out a systematic approach to getting more control over ourselves and that, in turn, will change your personal outcome dramatically. Now, while that sinks in, how about a Danish, coffee, and tromp through some headlines?
April 27, 2013 — If there is a global coastal event in our future (before June 21, say predictive linguistics) there’s no question about whether ‘over-prepping’ exists. The unequivocal answer is no way! If the lights were to go out, America were to be facing a displaced population in the many millions, there would be no way to be overly ready for such an event. But consider the flip-side: If nothing happens, well, what of all those prepping efforts then? It’s a good question and one we’ll ponder after we sample a few of the day’s headlines.

April 24, 2013 — If you’ve been following the predictive linguistics developed by Clif at www.halfpasthuman.com for any length of time, you’ll know that for many years there has been reference in the data to a global coastal event which is due just about any old time now. All of which doesn’t mean it will necessarily happen. It just means that in a bunch of computer code there’s a statistical anomaly which may come from an artifact in how the data is distilled, or it could be the project is being “spoofed” by forces that don’t want the future closely inspected. Perhaps it could be that something as odd as headlines or a massive thought virus could be at work; not an actual planet-shaker. Still, even the possibility of something massive “dis-ordinary” happening in the next month that results in a moment to reflect on how modern complex society would fare if worse really does come to worse. This as more after headlines and coffee, of course. End of World talk is bad on an empty tummy.
April 20, 2013 — Sure, we’ll cover the big stuff – like the capture of a suspect in Boston and the hints from a Fed official that indeed, Cyprus is a template for the West, but more important we’ll talk about the future of mini homes and how that can become the new American Dream. So grab a cup and let’s do some serious deep thinking this morning about how we rekindle the American dream…
