Some Words On Energy

In a matrix beyond our understanding, we live in an ‘arrangement’ of energy and we draw to us and repel things as our existence evolves. Our thoughts direct the energy we attract as well as those we push away like opposite poles of a magnet.

Magnetic energy will be the basis for our next transportation system. It has to be. Fuel has ruined us. We mismanaged our natural fuel reserves and emergency measures will be taken to preserve humanity or they won’t but magnets provide a clean way to transport the lot of us for all that we choose to move about. And we are a moving community. Nomads and gypsies abound.

America has proven herself to be the unifying melting pot that should serve as an example to the world that people can live side-by-side in peace most of the time. Our recession, depression, concession to world order has pushed many past healthy limits. Our mental health situation is almost critical. People who have never experienced such ongoing stress are ‘cracking up.’ I’ve seen it over, and over, and over on this mountain. And we are only 1500 people.

I love energy-studying it, measuring it, trying to create more of it. The space-time continuum makes for excellent daydreaming. Ask Einstein. He pictured the theory of relativity long before he put it into words. He envisioned a man falling inside of an elevator which is also falling. The man inside the falling box is gravity-free which is a continuum of Isaac Newton’s idea of this added force or power holding us all on this whirling planet.

If the space-time continuum puzzles you, find a juggler and watched him until you get it. Keep watching. He has to calculate his movement like a chess game, always keeping everything in motion. The key to time travel will be found in this puzzle. Back to the Future was a fun movie but they were going the wrong way.

Universal pain has been created and exists within the atmosphere. Our creative types, the artists, will have to work like madmen to put a dent in diffusing it; bringing it down into measurable pieces to be dismantled. All that fear and angst did was cause a firestorm. Nothing was resolved through fear and it never will be.

For all her strengths, America’s greatest weakness has always been its ignorance on where to find wisdom. We looked to our mother countries and found nothing but ropes to the past. We looked to each other and we were weary from the journey. Finally, Padres came and began building the missions which are still preserved and revered as the gathering places of original religion in these United States. God was not here before we brought Him and these gathering places hold tremendous energies. Imagine all the prayers originated in these clay and mud structures.

The natives revered nature. We stripped nature. The natives lived in peace with the land. We strip-mined it and poisoned it until manifested as cancer when our systems couldn’t flush it out. Our filters have been assaulted for so long that we have desensitized an entire generation. The tribes trusted that the buffalo would always provide for them. We decimated them into extinction for $1000 per pelt. Fortunes were built while reservations were made…

Information of Fiber Optic Cables

Fiber Optic CablesMany individual fibers are bound together around a high-strength or central steel cable plastic carrier that you use to carry the cable and also provide support. The core of the fiber is covered with a number of protective materials such as Kevlar, polyethylene, and aluminum. Since the core and the cladding are made from differing materials, the light travels at different speeds.

As the light wave traveling in the fiber reaches the boundary between the cladding and core, it bends back into the core. The bouncing and bending of the light causes it to travel fast thus light and information are transmitted fast. There are usually two types of optic fibers: single and multi-mode fibers. The single mode fiber features a small core (about 10 micrometers) and a cladding of 100 micrometers in diameter. Since the cable is small, it carries only one light wave over a long distance. Bundles of the single-mode fibers are heavily used in undersea cables and long distance telephone lines.

Multimode optic fibers have a large core (50 micrometers) and a cladding diameter of 125 micrometers. Due to this, it can carry hundreds of separate light waves over short distances. This fiber is often used in urban systems that require many signals to be carried to the central switching stations where they are then distributed.

Other applications of fiber optics

In addition to using the fibers in transmitting information, they are also used in other applications. One of the applications is in the lensing technology where the fibers make it possible for people to manufacture a wide range of lens shapes from the optical fiber.

The optic fibers are also applied in the endcap technology. The energy density at the output end of the fiber laser can sometimes be high but when you use an endcap, the energy diverges in a controlled manner.

Dealing With Common Windows PC Problems

There are a number of Windows PC problems that can easily be solved getting you back into enjoyable performance and they include the following:

Slow computer – It is one of the commonest problems among Windows users. Before considering replacing your PC consider the reasons behind the slowdown. Some of the reasons behind it include corrupted registry, unnecessary programs, spyware and fragmented data. You can easily get your speeds back by removing programs you never use or shutting them down when you are done using them. You can also get Windows applications to clean registry and run disk defragmenter.

Computer freezes – Viruses are usually behind this issue. Malware infections are on the rise, leading to the freezes. Computer hardware can also lead to the problem. Be careful when clicking links you are not familiar with or suspicious looking links to prevent viruses. Install anti-spyware and antivirus and ensure it is always updated. It is also helpful to check hardware drivers for updated versions and uninstalling components recently installed if you suspect the problem is hardware related.

Unexpected turn offs – If you keep experiencing unexpected computer, turn offs, you could have bad cable connections, inadequate power supply or defective battery. When your PC overheats, it is also likely to shut down so it can cool. Beat the problem by ensuring cables are connected properly and checking the fan regularly so you can dust and clean as appropriate. If you are using a laptop, you may want to check the battery; deterioration over time is inevitable and it may be time to have it replaced.

Web printing fails – You may be faced with a need to print documents from the web only to find that your computer won’t print. It could be because the document you are trying to print is password protected hence making it not printable or it could be that you have turned on pop-up blocker. It would be a good idea to allow temporary pop-ups and you can also find legitimate programs to break codes in documents that are protected.

Strange noises – They could be vibration or buzzes. They usually are as a result of failed or failing hardware. Electrical component problems may cause whining noises whereas lack of ventilation can cause the buzzing noises. Consider cleaning the fan and filter off any dust and ensure the air inlets are free. In some cases, you may need to uninstall and reinstall sound drivers or replace sound card.

Problems getting online – Network misconfigurations, software and hardware router errors, incorrect IP address, service provider latency and firewall application can all be responsible for this. Check all elements that matter, including your network connection status so you can reboot the router where necessary or call your ISP.

About Computers Through The Ages

So, we go back in time, to an Englishman named Charles Babbage who, most say was born just too early for his ideas. He originated the concept of a programmable computer and because of this is known as the father of the technology. He invented the first mechanical computer back in 1833 which was an analytical engine. The input of data and programs was to be provided to the machine through punched cards. The output had a printer, a curve plotter and a bell and it could punch numbers on cards that could be read at a later date. His idea even had an arithmetic logic unit, control flow and integrated memory, which would have been, had it been made, the first ever design for general use.

All of the parts for Babbage’s machine had to be made by hand and unfortunately his idea never reached fruition as the government cut his grants and he ran out of money. His son, Henry Babbage did make a simplified version of his dad’s idea though, in 1888 and he successfully demonstrated that it worked in 1906.

All of these ideas made way for the analog computers which used direct mechanical or electrical models of a problem as the basis for the computation. But, they were not programmable, they weren’t accurate and they weren’t very versatile. Something had to change.

The first programmable electronic computer was ENIAC which was fast and flexible and was completed in 1946. The program was designed by the states of its patch cables and switches. Someone would write a program and then mechanically set it into the machine with a manual reset of the patch cables and wires. It was a far cry from what we have today in the way of computers as it took up 1,800 square feet and weighed a hefty 50 tons. Imagine hauling that around in your pocket!

Technology kept progressing and today we can do almost anything from a tiny device we carry around with us. Incredible. What is next? Stay tuned!
