Was reading on the weather channels web site that the State of New York has had over 7 feet of snow put on the ground this week and more is coming. Well it was a great mild winter until now I guess mother nature wanted to make up for all the lost time this season. I hope everyone there is taking the week off from school and work and keeping warm.
The thing I love most about my blog is when it comes stuff to write about it it is not focused on one thing but rather life itself which is you probably already know is a sequence of random events that unfold over time, no matter how much you try to organize your day stuff happens. I have tryed my best to keep my writings here about stuff I rather enjoy or find faciinating. Which brings me back to this post and that blogs are amazing in that they give a voice or the chance to have your opinon read heard or watched all over the world.Alot fo people tell me they do not know what a blog is or how to set one up or what to write about once they have one and ofcourse all the good names are already taken. Well to me a blog is something your passionate about something you find exciting becasue no one wants to read misery although sometimes they do so whatever your fancy is love drama misery work or just day to day life start writing about it. Trust me all the good name are not taken and iwth so many dot extensions out there you are sure to find one that is perfect for you. But if you want a free blog then headover to WordPress.com or Blogger.com and get you a free one. What I like about owning my own is that I never have to worry about content being taken down this to me is priceless. But the true reason I love to blog is writing about it, whatever the story is, it is only then can you truley understand what you have just read, is to write about it, then you start to see things from all sorts of other angels or get ideas and perspectives about what ever it is your reading about that you would have never had unless you wrote a piece about it.

“Intel Corp. and IBM have announced one of the biggest advances in transistors in four decades, overcoming a frustrating obstacle by ensuring microchips can get even smaller and more powerful.
The breakthrough, achieved via separate research efforts and announced on Friday, involves using an exotic new material to make transistors the tiny switches that are the building blocks of microchips.
The technology involves a layer of material that regulates the flow of electricity through transistors.
“At the transistor level, we haven’t changed the basic materials since the 1960s. So it’s a real big breakthrough,” said Dan Hutcheson, head of VLSI Research, an industry consultancy.
“Moore’s Law was coming to a grinding halt,” he added, referring to the industry maxim laid down by Intel co-founder Gordon Moore that the number of transistors on a chip doubles roughly every two years.
The result of Moore’s Law has been smaller and faster chips and their spread into a wide array of consumer products that now account for the bulk of the industry’s $250 billion in annual sales.
The latest breakthrough means Intel, IBM and others can proceed with technology roadmaps that call for the next generation of chips to be made with circuitry as small as 45 nanometers, about 1/2000th the width of a human hair.”
This is such great news for the tech industry everything from Mobile devices to Games will be better faster and more colorful than ever before. When I read the entire article on the Reutuers web site I felt chills go down my spine and my hair raise up on my arms which is so creepy but cool so I knew right then I had to blog about it. Be sure to click on the link and read the article all the way thru. I think whatever company makes hafnium a silvery metal soon to be used in the next generation of chips will see there Stock sky rocket on the market.
You have probably heard of plant a tree day well the same thing here start planting seeds of goodness and watch them grow. This step requires you to bring to life an idea of how to make something better for the world. I planted a tree last year and started a small business around helping people with good ideas so that one day they may in return help out others with good ideas and hopefully the tree will take root and spread seeds to make other trees. Whatever it is you decide to watch grow just make sure the outcome is something positive. Weather your growing a plant or an idea or whatever comes to mind for this step, just remember to give it time nothing great was ever done in one day.
The North East of America uses 80 percent of the heating oil supply in America during the winter, this is where we need to target better more efficent heating systems that do not rely on oil what so ever. And in the west, the far west that is, we need to buy out China”s coal mining industry. The Chinease Government there invested several billions of dollars on pursueing this type of energy resource to produce power for it”s nation energy. Should the World invest in buying out polluting companies? Absolutley, and we should make it impposible to start new ones. We should make a list of the top 1000 polluting companies in the world and buy them out, only to put them out of business for the worlds sake and the health of every human on the planet. We must all invest in the future, in the best way each of us can, weather it be by donating time, money, or other resources we all need to do what we can to make tommorrow better than today.
