Fascinating View of The Future

(I am not sure of the source – I did not author this. However most makes sense to me as likely to happen based on trends. )

In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide.

Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they went bankrupt.

What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 10 years and, most people won’t see it coming.

Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on film again?

Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore’s law. So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a time, before it became way superior and became mainstream in only a few short years. It will now happen again with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3Dprinting, agriculture and jobs. Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution. Welcome to the Exponential Age .

Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years.

Uber is just a software tool, they don’t own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world.

Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don’t own any properties.

Artificial Intelligence: Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world . This year, a computer beat the best Go-player in the world, 10 years earlier than expected.

In the US , young lawyers already don’t get jobs. Because of IBM’s Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans.

So if you study law, stop immediately. There will be 90% less lawyers in the future, only specialists will remain.

Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, its 4 times more accurate than human nurses.

Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans. In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans. (NEVER!/Albert)

Autonomous cars : In 2018 the first self driving cars will appear for the public. Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted. You don’t want to own a car anymore. You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and can be productive while driving.

Our kids will never get a driver’s license and will never own a car.

It will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% less cars for that. We can transform former parking spaces into parks.

1.2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide. We now have one accident every 60,000 miles (100,000 km), with autonomous driving that will drop to 1 accident in 6million miles (10 million km). That will save a million lives each year.

Most car companies will probably become bankrupt. Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels.

Many engineers from Volkswagen and Audi; are completely terrified of Tesla.

Insurance companies will have massive trouble because without accidents, the insurance will become 100x cheaper. Their car insurance business model will disappear.

Real estate will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood.

Electric cars will become mainstream about 2020. Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run on electricity.

Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean: Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can now see the burgeoning impact.

Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil. Energy companies are desperately trying to limit access to the grid to prevent competition from home solar installations, but that can’t last. Technology will take care of that strategy.

With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water. Desalination of salt water now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter (@ 0.25 cents). We don’t have scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking water. Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as he wants, for nearly no cost.

Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year. There are companies who will build a medical device (called the “Tricorder” from Star Trek) that works with your phone, which takes your retina scan, your blood sample and you breath into it.

It then analyses 54 bio-markers that will identify nearly any disease.. It will be cheap, so in a few years everyone on this planet will have access to world class medical analysis, nearly for free Goodbye, medical establishment.

3D printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from $18,000 to $400 within 10 years. In the same time, it became 100 times faster. All major shoe companies have already started 3D printing shoes.

Some spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote airports. The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past.

At the end of this year, new smart phones will have 3D scanning possibilities. You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe at home.

In China, they already 3D printed and built a complete 6-story office building. By 2027, 10% of everything that’s being produced will be 3D printed.

Business opportunities: If you think of a niche you want to go in, first ask yourself: “In the future, do I think we will have that?” and if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner?

If it doesn’t work with your phone, forget the idea. And any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure in the 21st century.

Work : 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years. There will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be enough new jobs in such a short time. This will require a rethink on wealth distribution.

My Tribute July 4, 2016

Watch This First – Most Do Not Know

As a citizen of this country, I honor and defend what has gone before me.

It is time for us to be proud again – very proud

We have many challenges and I am not suggesting that I have all the answers I strongly feel our system is broken and I know our constitution provided a mechanism for when this happens. They somehow knew.

Click Here for that solution

Inside Out

Work On Who You Need To Be To Achieve Your GoalsYears ago I first heard Wayne Dyer asked the question what do you get when you squeeze an orange? Of course the answer is orange juice. The next question is why? The answer is because that’s is what’s  inside.

For me that is one of the most important lessons. How does this apply to business development? The answers may  surprise you. First I’m going to focus on health and health starts from the inside. Our health is reflective of what we eat, drink and how we think.

I now  know it is also related to the effectiveness of our circulatory system  I recently published an article addressing The Four Pillars of Vibrant Health. I highly recommend this. Click Here to read it.  I’ve talked about great technology that improves the circulatory system of our body Click Here  for that information.

What we eat and drink and how we think also affects our health.  If we’re always focusing  on problems,  grievances and are in in a state of fear we are putting tremendous stress on our physical self.  We cannot achieve our business development goals or any other goals for that matter unless we are in a state of positive physical energy (How do you think I know this?)

it is very easy to evaluate our physical self just pause and ask yourself how do I how do I feel?  If you are happy at peace excited and positive that’s the state we are  intended to be in.  If you’re not then  then you are well served by examining a self development program that will work for you. I have many recommendations – just ask.

Another evaluation process is to examine what you write and what you say. What comes out of your mouth what comes out of your pen it’s all reflective of what is inside you. You can’t call another a derogatory name without having that feeling that experience inside you.  Any judgment of another is a reflection of yourself when you adopt these principles of being physically healthy and being in a state of love rather than fear it does not mean that everyone that you want to reach will pay attention to you. it will mean you are attracted to those who you are  intended to reach and that is how you grow your business and achieve and achieve relationship goals and happiness goals

Two States Illinois and Oklahoma – WOW What A Difference

TWO STATES IN THE MIDDLE OF AMERICA!

Illinois and Oklahoma:

Interesting Contrast. (Note – this was found in the public domain on line. I have not verified the statistics. If you find something that is incorrect, comment and I will fix it.)

PART 1 – Illinois

“A State with No Republicans Leading Government”!

Some interesting data on the ‘state’ of, the State of Illinois… There are more people on welfare in Illinois than there are people working. Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S. Their average pay is $110,000/year. Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what? Be sure to read till the end. Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago ?

Body count:
In the last six months, 292 killed ( Murdered ) in Chicago .
221 killed in Iraq ; AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.

Here’s the Chicago chain of command :

President: Barack Hussein Obama
Senator: Dick Durbin
House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr.
Governor: Pat Quinn
House leader: Mike Madigan
Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike)
Mayor: Rahm Emanuel
The leadership in Illinois – all Democrats.

Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago . .
Of course, they’re all blaming each other. .
Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any! .

Let us get ALL the facts out while we are at it:

Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country. Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!

State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country.
Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!

Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!

This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he is going to ‘fix’ Washington politics for us?

George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in prison.

He was replaced by Rob Blagojevich who is, by the way, also in prison.

And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned and, that’s right, he and his wife are both in prison.

The Land of Lincoln , where our Governors and Representatives make our license plates. What?

As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go bankrupt before the country does.

With all the bad news, there is hope, so let’s go to:

PART 2- Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA- may soon have plenty of new residents!

THIS IS REALLY INTERESTING,

Oklahoma is the only state that Obama did not win even one county in the last election… look what Oklahoma has been doing!!!

An update from Oklahoma:
Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9 an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values… HB 1330

Guess what… Oklahoma did it anyway.

Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal immigrants and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all scattered. HB1804. This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake.

Guess what… Oklahoma did it anyway.

Recently Oklahoma passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all illegal’s to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative purposes. Pelosi said it was unconstitutional SB1102.

Guess what… Oklahoma did it anyway.

Several weeks ago, Oklahoma passed a law, declaring Oklahoma as a Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives. Joining, Texas , Montana and Utah as the only states to do so. More states are likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi and Florida. Save your confederate money, it appears the South is about to rise up once
again. HJR 1003

The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I’m sure that was a setback for the criminals The Liberals didn’t like it- –

But…

Guess what… Oklahoma did it anyway.

Just this month, the state has voted and passed a law that ALL drivers’ license exams will be printed in English and only English and no other language. They have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma , you must read and write English. Really simple.

By the way, the Liberals don’t like any of this either.

Guess what… who cares… Oklahoma is doing it anyway.

Now How Do We Make This Happen?  The way is The Convention of States Project 

Thomas Jefferson – This Is Leadership Making a Huge Positive Difference

thomas jefferson1The following was sent to me in an email. I don’t know the author. It is outstanding.  I hope you appreciate this as much as I do. 

Steve Pohlit

I Support The Convention of States 


THOMAS JEFFERSON

There are two parts. Be sure to read the 2nd part (in  RED ).

  Thomas Jefferson was a very remarkable man who started learning very early in life and never stopped.

  At 5, began studying under his cousin’s tutor.

  At 9, studied Latin, Greek and French.

  At 14, studied classical literature and additional languages.

  At 16, entered the College of William and Mary. Also could write in Greek with one hand while writing the same in Latin with the other.

At 19, studied Law for 5 years starting under George Wythe. 

At 23, started his own law practice. 

At 25, was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses. 

At 31, wrote the widely circulated “Summary View of the Rights of British America”; and retired from his law practice. 

At 32, was a Delegate to the Second Continental Congress. 

At 33, wrote the Declaration of Independence. 

At 33, took three years to revise Virginia’s legal code, wrote a Public Education bill and a statute for Religious Freedom. 

At 36, was elected the second Governor of Virginia, succeeding Patrick Henry. 

At 40, served in Congress for two years. 

At 41, was the American minister to France and negotiated commercial treaties with European nations, along with Ben Franklin and John Adams. 

At 46, served as the first Secretary of State under George Washington. 

At 53, served as Vice President and was elected president of the American Philosophical Society. 

At 55, drafted the Kentucky Resolutions and became the active head of Republican Party. 

At 57, was elected the third president of the United States . 

At 60, obtained the Louisiana Purchase, doubling the nation’s size. 

At 61, was elected to a second term as President. 

 

At 65, retired to Monticello. 

At 80, helped President Monroe shape the Monroe Doctrine. 

At 81, almost single-handedly created the University of Virginia and served as its first
president.
 

At 83, died on the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence along with John Adams. 

Thomas Jefferson knew human nature and government because he himself studied the previous failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of God, His laws and the nature of man. That happens to be much more than what most of us understand today. Jefferson is a voice from the past to lead us in the future. 

John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: “This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House, with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”

Read the following wisdom:

“When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
— Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:   “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.   If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”

I wish we could get this out to every American!  I’m doing my part. So please do yours.

Thanksgiving Day – First Declared by The First President of The United States – Read What He Was Thankful For

The “Father of our Country,” George Washington, the first President of the United States, declared the first national Thanksgiving Day in his first year and first term of office, to be observed on the 26th of November, 1789:     Thanksgiving Proclamation, 3 October 1789

By the President of the United States of America. A Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor–

and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be–

That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks— for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation–

For the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war–

For the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed–

For the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted–

For the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions–

to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually–

to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed–

to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shown kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord–

To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us–

and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789. Geo. Washington

(See GW Papers, UVA, National Archives, Text, History of Thanksgiving National Holiday)

Abraham Lincoln made Thanksgiving a National Holiday in 1863 and since then (with a brief interlude in 1939 when it was shifted to the 3rd Thursday), Thanksgiving has been observed on the 4th Thursday of every November.

Washington’s proclamation serves as a model and guide for every generation. These were his “prayer targets” and point for point, modified for our current circumstance, they can, and I believe should be used in our prayers, today.

This proclamation, in keeping with Washington’s private prayers published after his death, the Thanksgiving proclamations of the Continental Congresses, and Colonial Governors and legislatures for decades prior to the Founding, all mixed thanksgiving with humble prayers for the pardon of our personal and national transgressions.

Actions are Either Strong or Weak – Message from Neale Donald Walsch

Neale Donald Walsch I believe God wants you to knowI get a message from Neale nearly everyday. I read them all. I really like the ones where he ends with “And you know exactly why you received this message today.” Visit Neale Donald Walsch One of my favorite messengers and first famous with his Conversations With God books.

Be sure your register to the right so you never miss any of the outstanding material I publish! 🙂

On this day of your life,
Steve, I believe God wants you to know…

…that every action is either strong or weak,
and when every action is strong we are successful.

Wallace D. Wattles said that, and he was right. You know when
the action you take is strong, and you know when it is weak.
You can tell in your stomach. Endeavor to
take no weak action whatsoever. Run away from it.
Reject it. Go for the strong action, the strong choice, every time.

You know, by the way, what is meant by all of this.
You have been weak in some of your choices and decisions,
and you have been strong. You have been both in your life.
But no more, right? Only strong from now on, yes?

And you know exactly why you
received this message today.

Love,  Your Friend

Neale.

Thank you Neale

Thinking I Am A Victim Will Not Bring The Desired Results

thinking you are a victim

If you believe there are shortages of opportunities and wealth, then that is what you are going to experience. Do you think Google or Facebook thinks there are limits on building wealth? What about Apple and the turnaround story of Starbucks? Have you looked at what Koty Batemen has done with Send Out Cards? The people behind these success stories were not born into those successes.

I don’t know about you but nearly every week I see some story about people criticizing the Top 1%, promoting much higher minimum wage is the answer or how government should be doing more. All of that is the thinking of victims. There is nothing stopping nearly any of us from experiencing all of what we want.
