World War Three? Who, What, When, Y?

Even the Queen of the U.K., for the first time since the ‘Cold War’ in 1983, is thinking that World War III can begin tonight.

If we take her royal highness’ word for it, we can hold our collective breath, prepare, ignore, or do something about it.

What will it be?

Excuse me, I am going to take a pill . . .

Focus, Direct Attention Domestically and with North America

Dailey Status:

this is what I formally communicated today and

posted on-line . . .

I used to be a Dem and Rep, myself. I’ve spoken with the WH twice this afternoon (WH Press Office) I am trying to make peace with a focus on North America – I believe Stormy and Syrian news items should take low priority – we , the US, needs to direct more attention domestically and with the Country of Cuba; consider the US Monroe Doctrine!

University of Notre Dame fans are celebrating

both a men’s and woman’s NCAA National Championship!

 

Their basketball team finished 34-3 this season after defeating previously undefeated U. Conn Huskies and once-beaten Mississippi State Bulldogs last weekend in the 2018 Final Four. It was head coach Muffet McGraw’s second title and 800th career victory.

 

The men’s hockey team won two at the 2018 Frozen Four – winning games versus the Michigan Wolverines and University of Minnesota at Duluth Bulldogs. That earned the hockey program N.D.’s first national championship in history.

 

As with the dramatic last second winning baskets, the hockey team scored with 3.5 seconds remaining in the Michigan game and rallied from a 2-0 deficit versus the Minnesota team during the Frozen Four played in St. Paul, Minnesota

Finding Your Creative Genius

 

Creativity, channeling energy, and connectivity of separate technologies are essential cognitive qualities, which scientific studies have revealed that geniuses, award winners, and great fine artists possess. Another key attribute is that superb individuals apply their curiosity of their environment.

 

Not everyone can achieve the greatness of Mozart, Einstein, Shakespeare, nor Matisse but start being more curious of the world around yourself and you may be amazed with the results. Creativity, discovery, and invention is not solely based on IQ.

 

Great accomplishments have occurred when engineers, scientists, musicians, and painters have somehow linked two realities from different technologies. Imagination is a key. Simpler minds can be vulnerable to physical or mental distractions or unrelated facts. Another key to unlock new directions in most any field of endeavor is channeling energy with focus.

 

This focus is analogous to a wise manager budgeting resources effectively in order to address multiple needs, facilitate issue resolution, and solve problems.

 

Musicians often refer to harmony. With creativity, we can perceive a harmonic connection of dispersant ideas.

 

In addition to meditation, one technique I have used is to feel every bodily sense – sight, sound, smell, touch, proprioception, and taste. Think of what qualities each sense gives your brain and combine the sensations and cognitive feelings.

 

Your ultimate success will depend upon how you apply knowledge, work hard, display perseverance, and become – if you aren’t already – passionate about your field of work.

 

If you do not believe this, just take a look at savants with a diagnosed mental illness. Their abilities in specific areas are outstanding. One set of examples are those known as calendar savants. Savants can display unreal behaviors without collaboration with other masterminds.

 

For your information, these ideas are not just proven theories. Investigate real-life examples and study the following resources:

  • Biographies of recognized geniuses
  • The Theory of Everything
  • The evolution of biotechnology’s CRISPR
  • The organization “Bring Change 2 Mind”
  • The field of Architecture
  • Hypotheses of Precognition
  • The elements of Extrasensory Perception (ESP) and the Paranormal

 

 

Those of us who aren’t natural geniuses can muster great results by collaborating with others. The winning team concept goes beyond the sporting arena.

 

Healthcare professionals and smart citizens are promoting the destigmatization of mental health. Old concepts have given rise to prejudice, unfair judgement, and isolation of people with mental health diagnoses. Acceptance – not isolation – is important. People historically have been preyed upon. After all, one of four Americans has a mental illness. This approach is contraindicated in terms of better mental health as well as being unethical bias.

 

We can agree that minds and mental health matters. Treatments as well as how we view it matters very much.

 

Evidence is overwhelming that people who work with their hands simultaneously stimulate their brains. Runners can also relate to the “high” they feel.

 

Aside from teamwork, there are many ways to develop ingenuity. There must be more than 100 exercises to boost neural activity of the brain and creativity.

United States Declares War on Three New Fronts in Three Continents

Washington, D.C. (Easter Week 2018) – Alleged Christian Donald J. Trump is now declaring new wars in three continental fronts: East Asia, Central America, and the Middle East – versus Red China, Syria, and ‘caravans’ of North and South Americans headed north, supposedly to work in agricultural jobs that U.S. citizens will not do.

The renewed ‘Tariff War’ targeted at the socioeconomics of over one billion people may be the toughest to win. Those that know history recall bankruptcies as well as lost ‘military’ battles the U.S. has waged against immigration and Middle East people.

Those that understand American government see irony of how any President can declare war without an act of Congress.

Also remarkable is, as the National Director of National Security (DHS), a.k.a. Homeland [no relation to German Nazis] described, no details to the White House Press Corp how, when, why, and at what financial cost the southwest border war will entail.

Perhaps it would help if presidential advisors would provide planning assistance for the federal government?

More planning and less tweeting may improve the United States’ odds of winning any international conflict?!?

As my old friend Bob would say, “Lord have mercy!”

Timing in sports, stand-up comedy, business, cooking, and international politics is very important. May the Lord spare US from three losses, poor jokes, bankruptcy, world disasters, death, and another burned pot roast.

Easy Living as Seniors

Geriatric Ergonomics
Eight Dimensions of Health & Wellness:

Now we realize (wisdom coming with aging) that proper ergonomics increase human performance and productivity, while decreasing workplace accidents. Now then, imagine a senior citizen who is well-past their prime and measurable athletic performance years. Ergonomics for seniors becomes serious business to prevent injury, perform daily tasks, and to heal from surgery.

As the body and bones become frail seniors are open for accidents, and many of the slips and falls they have result in huge problems such as broken hips, knee surgeries or wrist injuries. A senior with a wrist injury may stop brushing their teeth, or stop eating certain foods or taking their medicine as they cannot open the jars or bottles. They may stop sending emails and get depressed as they are unable to email family and friends.

is why it is so important to be aware of these things and act accordingly. They will need shower seats, special handles in the bathroom, bottle and can openers, and a comfortable supportive reading chair. These are critical issues although they seem so obvious to us. Until you’ve had an injury or been without the use of a limb, you do not understand, but they should not have to go through the pain or hardship because you didn’t notice.

Often seniors do not wish to complain or admit they are having problems with things, they want you to not worry and they wish to continue their independence, but please it is up to you to talk with them and ask them about these things. It’s amazing what a few simple things can do to improve their quality of life.

Trump Administration “Making Progress”

Classic Satire Made by Susan Keller:

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it looks like Rump is actually making America great again. Just look at the progress made since the election: LOL

1. Unprecedented levels of ongoing civic engagement.
2. Millions of Americans now know who their state and federal representatives are without having to google.
3. Millions of Americans are exercising more. They’re holding signs and marching every week.
4. Alec Baldwin is great again. Everyone’s forgotten he’s kind of a jerk.

pres-politics
5. The Postal Service is enjoying the influx cash due to stamps purchased by millions of people for letter and postcard campaigns.
6. Likewise, the pharmaceutical industry is enjoying record growth in sales of anti-depressants.
7. Millions of Americans now know how to call their elected officials and know exactly what to say to be effective.
8. Footage of town hall meetings is now entertaining.
9. Tens of millions of people are now correctly spelling words like emoluments, narcissist, fascist, misogynist, holocaust and cognitive dissonance.
10. Everyone knows more about the rise of Hitler than they did last year.
11. Everyone knows more about legislation, branches of power and how checks and balances work.
12. Marginalized groups are experiencing a surge in white allies.
13. White people in record numbers have just learned that racism is not dead. (See #6)
14. White people in record numbers also finally understand that Obamacare IS the Affordable Care Act.
15. Stephen Colbert’s “Late Night” finally gained the elusive #1 spot in late night talk shows, and Seth Meyers is finding his footing as today’s Jon Stewart.
16. “Mike Pence” has donated millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood since Nov. 9th.
17. Melissa FREAKING McCarthy.
18. Travel ban protesters put $24 million into ACLU coffers in just 48 hours, enabling them to hire 200 more attorneys. Lawyers are now heroes.
19. As people seek veracity in their news sources, respected news outlets are happily reporting a substantial increase in subscriptions, a boon to a struggling industry vital to our democracy.
20. Live streaming court cases and congressional sessions are now as popular as the Kardashians.
21. Massive cleanup of Facebook friend lists.
22. People are reading classic literature again. Sales of George Orwell’s “1984” increased by 10,000% after the inauguration. (Yes, that is true. 10,000%. 9th grade Lit teachers all over the country are now rock stars.)
23. More than ever before, Americans are aware that education is important. Like, super important.
24. Now, more than anytime in history, everyone believes that anyone can be President. Seriously, anyone.

Irony is Killing US – Four Kinds of Politics Identified by VP Joe Biden

8-8-16

Vice President Joe Biden and his father have identified four kinds of American politics:

  • Labor Politics
  • Religious Politics
  • Regular Politics
  • Cancer Politics

In a concerted effort to get everyone involved and cooperating on-the-same-page, the Vice President [and I wish Joe would become our 45th President] has coined a “Moon Shots Program” for the Cancer Community.

j v
Legendary Basketball Coach Jimmy Valvano

This Cancer Community appears to be operating in its own individualist self-interest. If only researchers, doctors/oncologists, colleges and foundations, patients and their codependents and helpers, philanthropists, and others would work together to find cures for many types of cancer, we Americans who suffer – and the human race – would be better off.

Joe is not far off by comparing the American effort during the 1960s to a current emphasis on cancer solutions and prevention for our current decade, which has only four years remaining.

The urgency is now to get egos and financial incentives directed toward non-selfish results . . . and hurry before my best friend dies!

As national champion Coach Jimmy Valvano said weeks before his death, “Don’t give up, don’t ever give up!”

Last Night in “Glentucky” – New Year’s – 2000 Hours – Five Degrees Above Farenheit – Waxing to a Full Moon on 1-5-2015

I am warm inside a bed and breakfast close to downtown Glenwood Springs, Colorado. My friends who I have met in the regional homeless community are either staying in the basement of a Christian church in West Glenwood or in the basement of a Catholic church in Aspen. Each overnight program has many more than 20 participants. This does not include the multitude of families and children who locally receive food assistance. Dozens of other homeless people are ‘camping out’ even though the location they end up sleeping at may be a criminal defense.

Glenwood Springs Amtrak Station near the Colorado River
Glenwood Springs Amtrak Station near the Colorado River

In “Glentucky” alone, over 60 adults attended tonight’s Extended Table dinner hour in the basement of the First Methodist Church Tonight it was hosted by St. Mary of the Star Roman Catholic Church of Carbondale, Colorado, which is located about 15 miles south of Glenwood Springs and 25 miles north of Aspen. In Garfield County, there are four towns that serve some evening hot meals. Glenwood Springs and Aspen have daytime shelters for homeless and disadvantaged adults.

I will write more about how it was living almost seven consecutive months in this region of the United States of America. Right now I have to resume my packing… the next freight train going west leaves Glentucky about Noon.

P. S. On 12/31/14, I left a Janzsport backpack in the 1st Methodist Church basement dining room. It had a smartphone, 15 year old address book, passport, banking documents, and other personal effects. I never saw it again.

I tried to contact the church and the town’s homeless daycare center… no luck.

So hard, if not impossible to replace stuff like that.

Less than a week later, I got off the Amtrak train ill. Went to a hospital in Reno.

A day after that, my wallet was pickpocketed across from Harrah’s Casino on Reno’s Virginia Street. [needless to say, in retrospect 2015 sucked!]

Honestly, Reno Nevada = the worst city in the USA to be homeless!
