Increasingly I want to communicate with my readers through my free email newsletter, which is just a simple, direct and personal email from me that I'll soon be sending out every three weeks or so. If you would like to receive this email in your inbox, subscribe to it on my website, or by using the subscription box about halfway down the column on the right. I wouldn't think of using your email address for anything but my e-newsletter (to which you can always unsubscribe with the click of a button). Thanks, and looking forward to communicating with you in this more intimate way.

    In the future, our rocket cars with have satellite-receiving navigation systems to guide us. Those navigation systems will be tiny (about the size of a portable TV), and in order to program a route, you will simply show the unit where you want to go.

    science and technology….we want to beat everbody and be the smartest nation, the most advanced nation etc.! We were in the beginnings of a “Cold War” with Russia and a race to be the first across the “techno” finish line. The United States wanted to pull away from an agricultural based society to that of a technology based society…unfortunately you can’t eat a micro chip.
