GeekSpeak – Is there New Hope for our Climate? Join the discussion Sept. 18th at 12pm SLT


 


Last month a report from a thinktank called RethinkX suggested that certain disruptive technologies will mean that we produce less carbon without even meaning to.  Perhaps these technologies mean that we will not destroy our planet after all.

Let’s talk about these disruptive technologies.  What are they and why are they so disruptive? 

Let’s discuss the speed with which the world changes when disruption hits.  Horses were obsolete 15 years after the first car.  Radio and TV were adopted even more quickly.  Future disruptions could move at light speed.  If you ever wonder why the world changes so fast, hold your hat for the next 15 years. 

Come and discuss  the ways we do things now before they are gone forever.  Bring your friends and a CD, if you can remember what that was.

GeekSpeak – what is the future of Africa? Join the discussion Saturday, August 24th at noon SLT


Africa is the second largest continent, with 54 countries and a very young and rapidly expanding population.  At present it is suffering from wars, diseases, and droughts. But there is a lot of promise for the future.
Let’s talk about how the next superpower will develop.  How soon will we see a major boost in the wealth of the African population?  What is needed to get it going? What problems must be overcome?Will Africa be the next energy provider, or the next food provider for the world?  Or will we see an industrial revolution as in East Asia? What leapfrogging effects will take place?


Come and discuss the soon-not-so-dark continent today!

Sandy Aftermath: Reporting from Northeast Pennsylvania



Sandy sure packed a powerful punch as it made its way over the eastcoast region of the United States. In Pennsylvania we prepared for what forcasters were saying would be historical. In deed it was. It devastated lower Manhattan, sucker punched the Jersey shore, ripped out the Atlantic City boardwalk and bodyslammed Pennsylvania as far in as Philadelphia, among other states in its path of desctuction. I'm glad to report, power has been restored to 41,000 in my area but 160,000 are still without power. Schools have been closed since Monday due to outages. There is some flooding and lots of debris remaining. Life after Sandy is in clean up mode.

BREAKING NEWS! The Perfect Storm is about to Administer a Smackdown to the Northeast! Are you prepared for an evacuation? Lanai Jarrico Reporting...

  


 A Superstorm named Sandy is being tracked as it makes landfall in Virginia, bringing heavy rain and wind. it is expected to turn back inland overnight towards regions of New York, New jersey, New England and well into Northeastern Pennsylvania; directly in my path!  Ahhhhhhh!
 The perfect storm as it is being called by weather watchers has already prompted New York City to shut down subway and transit systems ahead of the storm. Schools within it’s path have made their cancellations, low level land and coastal regions are also being evacuated at this time.  Electricity outages are estimated to be in the millions during this historical storm! 

Expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski, reported, “An extremely rare and dangerous storm will turn in from the Atlantic, affecting 60 million people in its path and could lead to billions of dollars in damage”.“ Hurricane Sandy remains on track to become a historical storm for the mid-Atlantic and southern New England with New Jersey and New York City bracing for very dangerous conditions and catastrophic damage.The impact from Sandy will reach hundreds of miles from the center of landfall, including areas well inland and well ahead of the storm's landfall Monday night”.
