The Danger, poetic thought by George-B (©Always) (the smudge and other poems)


The Danger, poetic thought by George-B (©Always)

The Danger lurking in plain sight,
disguised
as benevolent face…
It holds a book,
of broken promises,
some secrets to be kept…
How more can one deceive,
another one with,
But selling all there is,
and getting bloated at it…
The epics of persona selling,
is just as old as slave trade,
yes, it is…

we’re blessed, poetic thought by George-B (©Always)

The water levels are rising, and they will continue to
Water cannot escape the earth, the air is captive:
We are lucky that way…
we’re blessed.

facebook, poetic thought by George-B

To like or not to like:
That is today’s question:
Facebook plays with my feelings of liking and disliking,
but you know that,
it’s all over the news…the betrayal of trust of confidence,
of the most basic relationship…among people:
Fairness, not taking advantage of each other,
as a tool to make yourself rich (and make another poor)
But then you knew there is nothing sincere about facebook, that some made into faithbook: big mistake, big, big mistake)

Buckypaper

Scientists have applied inventor Buckminster Fuller‘s name not only to the 60-carbon molecule—the “buckyball”—whose arrangement of atoms resembles his geodesic dome, but to various other objects. Buckypaper, for instance, is a thin sheet made of carbon nanotubes—”buckytubes“—that are approximately 50,000 times thinner than a human hair. Buckypaper is one tenth the weight yet potentially 500 times stronger than steel when its sheets are stacked to form a composite. What are its possible uses? More… Discuss

The global economy is NOT in resession because of overweight people but because of the unsafe foods we’re exposed to, such as: Modified starch (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia): one will find it as in mostly all processed foods


Modified starch, also called starch derivatives, are prepared by physically, enzymatically, or chemically treating native starch to change its properties.[1] Modified starches are used in practically all starch applications, such as in food products as a thickening agent, stabilizer or emulsifier; in pharmaceuticals as a disintegrant; as binder in coated paper. They are also used in many other applications.[2]

Starches are modified to enhance their performance in different applications. Starches may be modified to increase their stability against excessive heat, acid, shear, time, cooling, or freezing; to change their texture; to decrease or increase their viscosity; to lengthen or shorten gelatinization time; or to increase their visco-stability.

- Calories in vs. calories  consumed (is the main resort that you have: the lower the intake, the lesser effort you’ll need to burn the rather than store as fat the extra nutrients ingested),  IF:
- you have been diagnosed with diabetes remember that the safest foods for you are prepared at home from ingredients procured from the market.
- Avoid juicers and all concentrated (dried) fruits) (get accustomed to enjoy apples)
- Your stomach will work hard in digesting some foods (which is good internal workout) and the best (due to low nutritive value) is broccoli (do not juice it, let your digestive system deal with that!)
- Eat nonfat pro-bionic yogurt, kefir, even sauerkraut to maintain an healthy digestive system. You can make your kefir find out how: @ http://www.culturesforhealth.com/Kefir/
- Did you asked yourself if you have brisk walk, or whatever it that drives your heart rate 85%and up for more than 15 minutes: if you can carry conversations easily you probably are not achieving that goal! Get a heart rate monitoring wristwatch) If not do it, the earlier in the day, the best!
- stay regular (get fiber like Metamucil, etc.)  in your diet (you can add fiber to soups, coffee, protein shakes….you get the idea).

Virtual economy, poetic thought by George B

The paint not dry yet
The painting’s hanging on the wall
Still swaying, slightly,
On the wall that isn’t dry yet,
Between tenancies,
In a building that’s still under construction
That still needs permits,
corridors to be painted,
last coat,
and a roof, and doors…
Economic recovery…
Economic discovery…
Virtual economy…

Maybe, Maybe,  poetic thought by George-B

I waited for the right wave, too long,
unlike Papillon I discovered
no particular sequence.
Wave washed on the sand at my feet, 
waves crushed against the shore, 
always remodeling…

I waited for the right wind, the one that would propel me
away from the shore, for too long…
many a wind came, whistling their way through space
brushing and polishing the face of stone, the Sphinx:
He seems to have been witness to all, since it was carved
by demigods or perhaps antediluvian human-like creature,
my ancestors…
Maybe, one day the perfect wind will bring the perfect wave

Maybe, maybe…

The First Monday Trade Days are a trading bazaar that each month brings 100,000-300,000 people to the small town of Canton, Texas. This legendary affair in northern Texas has its origins in the 1850s when the circuit court judge came to Canton on the first Monday of the month to conduct court proceedings. Farmers from the area would gather to sell or trade horses, conduct other business in town, and watch the occasional hanging. Now theflea market starts on Thursday and runs through the weekend before the first Monday, offering merchandise and food at more than 3,000 exhibition stalls.More… Discuss

As a boy, Kamprad showed a knack for business by buying matches in bulk and reselling them individually for profit. He grew up to establish home furnishing retail chain IKEA in 1943. In 1956, he debuted flat-boxed furniture, a revolutionary decision that enabled his company to bypass warehousing with in-store inventory and allowed customers to transport products easily.

NEWS: SUPERSONIC JET’S DESIGNERS ELIMINATE WINDOWS


Supersonic Jet’s Designers Eliminate Windows

When is a window seat not a window seat? When the plane’s cabin has no windows. An aerospace company is in the process of designing a new supersonic jet, and it is planning to eliminate cabin windows entirely. Such windows, while offering passengers breathtaking views, create drag and require additional structural support that adds weight to an aircraft. This poses a challenge when building a jet meant to fly from New York to London in under four hours. Thus, in place of windows, the craft will have display screens embedded in the cabin walls that are linked to cameras mounted on the aircraft’s exterior. More… Discuss
