WE WISH YOU A HAPPY YEAR END 2015, AND AN EVEN BETTER 2016

24 Dec 2015

Dear readers,

As 2015 nears its end, we just wanted to wish everyone happy festivities, however you celebrate them. As we reflect on the events/accomplishments in many fields both social, scientific of the past year, we are reminded of the maxim:”May you live in interesting times”. We do indeed! Never in the history of the world has humanity accomplished so much change in so little time as we have seen in the last five years (2010-2015). One possible exception is the five years of WWII (1940-1945). We must remember that the number of people in the world has virtually doubled since 1945; that in and of itself, has been the cause of much strife, huge population migrations/displacements and scientific accomplishments.

Probably the greatest accomplishments have occurred in the scientific, energy, medical, new materials, new improved telephony, space exploration, and cosmology fields, brought about by exploding knowledge accumulation propagated by the World Wide Web. Such knowledge opens new thought horizons as well as accelerated socio-political change.

The human experiment goes on. If we just adjust our needs and ways/means, we could emerge into a new light of universal prosperity by the year 2,100. The alternative is too harsh to contemplate: A highly polluted world untenable for large human habitation; accompanied by untold suffering and death probably worse than the bubonic plague which decimated one third of humanity during the middle-ages.

May we all bask in the company of our loved ones, have something special to eat/drink, and above all be happy to be alive, and doing well, while we reflect upon those not so lucky, and find some way to share what we have. This Post is planning an expanded overview of of the past five years in most meaningful areas of human endeavors. Based on that, we shall attempt project where changes are direly needed. We know that will be no small task. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Your friend in South Texas,
