7 young technologies changing the world

Just around the corner lie advances in fields from nanotech and robots to fracking and 3-D printing that will reshape the economy and our lives -- and they could be as profitable for early investors as the microchip has been.

Kudos to USARogue, the poster I modified this from:

 

The Federal Reserve:

1) Is A Privately Owned Banking Cartel
2) Is A Perpetual Debt Machine
3) Has Destroyed More Than 96% Of The Value Of The U.S. Dollar
4) Can Bail Out Whoever It Wants To Without Accountability
5) Uses Member Banks To Selectively Lend To Hold Us In Suppression
6) Creates Artificial Economic Bubbles To Compromise Economies
7) Is Dominated By The Big Wall Street Banks and Corrupt Banksters
8) System & Personal Income Tax Both Came To Be In 1913 without our vote.
9) Chairman, Ben Bernanke Has A Nightmarish Track Record Of Incompetence
10) Defies Democracy By Its Very Existence.

 

The War on Terror was fought on the wrong shore. Recall the troops and redeploy them to end the suppression of Americans through Financial Tyranny, control and manipulation.

A reminder that if there was no Federal Reserve, yesterday's Dow losses would have paralyzed controllers and manipulators to some extent. I believe that's coming regardless of the fiat money pumping. The rich are an endangered species.

It's all great if this stuff is not USED against us. The CONTRACTORS run are government through paranoid Delusions of dismantling our great Republic. One can only hope we are not too late in seeing we should be "QUESTIONING AUTHORITY" instead of handing them the "Bill of Rights" to use for toilet paper.

 "The issue of privacy is resolved. There is no privacy. The understanding we had of privacy is gone."

The "understanding"? Unless Oxford changes the definition of the word "privacy" to it's antonym, it's not the understanding that has changed, it's the entire elimination of any privacy -- a horrible thing, IMHO.

I enjoy my anonymity and the last small scraps of freedom I have at the moment.

Yea, great. The NSA will hack your smart fridge to keep an eye on you, and if they find that package of Lebanese bread they will declare you a risk to National Security, take control of your car and run you off a bridge. Awesome!

The present state of humanity suggests that anything we  imagine can become reality so in your brainstorming please take time to imagine kindness, happiness and love.

"....Such printers are also being used to make replacement hip joints, custom hearing-aid pieces and iPhone cases."

Thank God. The world needs another iPhone case.

I can understand the need for self driving cars.  Have you been on the road with all the Asian drivers lately???

The biggest issue with all of these things is simply this: Just because we CAN does not mean we SHOULD. I, for one, will walk instead of ever having a self-driving car. I also do not want every electronic device I own making decisions FOR me. Medical advances are fine. We do not have enough jobs for PEOPLE to do now. What happens when all the jobs are done by machine? People still need to eat, need shelter, etc.

 

Technology is supposed to enhance our lives, not do it all for us.

When our environment becomes so bad that humans can't survive, it is nice to know the earth will be on automatic and the machines man created will carry on.

I don't  need or want some of these technologies. Robotics and self driving cars, no thank you.

I can see the difference between the children of today and my childhood and I do believe some technology is not good at all. I feel as though the technology of today makes life to easy and we are losing skills that may be needed again because of it.

Hey, I have a great idea! Let's make those "Advanced Robots" able to be clerks at the unemployment office to facilitate the far larger numbers of unskilled/uneducated/untrainable people so those now in those jobs that the new immigrants and our existing exclusions to the taxpaying team who's jobs will be taken by those same type of robots soon, will be served more quickly as they are permanently made employment irrelevant ............LOL!

Clayton Christenson, the author of "Innovator's Dilemma" and the first person to coin the phrase, "disruptive technology", was my college commencement speaker. Absolutely fascinating. Besides speaking a little about some of these more well-known concepts, he also made some interesting observations about US foreign policy. He pointed out that when the US attempted to "punish" other countries with economic sanctions, like Cuba and North Korea, our relationships with those countries quickly soured and caused further economic and diplomatic decline. But when we decided to be open and forgiving with "hostile" countries, like Japan after WW2, both economic and diplomatic relations improved dramatically.

it is a new world and it is time to see and be the future. any way that we can stop killing the planet, drilling under water, or any other way we see as "needed" to further rape our mother earth. Think, the reason we are able to be alive to enjoy these new things is because of our planet. do away with gas. who needs it. so many cars, come on. strip logging more and more land. tears come up, and i wonder, will we be able to travel to another planet to kill before this one dies. we'll see. there should be more and more focus on how to live here with out doing any more damage. every body write some letters voice your concerns. drilling holes in the ocean floor when we haven't,t even explored it all will be the end of life as we know it. some huge geo shift that wipes out what is not needed. can you swim. i know i'll survive, will you?
