Randomthoughts on science, business and society today.

Whatif and what can or might be.

Whatif the decay rate of elements varies rather than being a constant? Imagine,if this is the case, it would mean that all archeological dating is in question. How old are artifacts? When in fact did the dinosaurs really die out? Further, consider that ...readmore ...

Whatis the speed of gravity? If it is instantaneous, then what if gravity can be modulated? Todaymost scientists, assume that the speed of gravity is the same as the speed of light, but what if the speed of gravity is instantaneous? Further, if gravity can be modulated, it might allow for instantaneous universal communication. Thus it might be possible to communicate with space craft instantly, rather than waiting for minutes for transmissions to reach the craft or earth. Perhaps computer chips can be made to operate vastly faster. And this is just the beginning since ...readmore ...

Reason,Logic and intellect is not reliable. The late Christopher Hitchens often stated that we should rely on our logic, reason and intellect to determine the truth. Many people who pride themselves as educated, intelligent and progressive believe the same. As reasonable as this seems, Galileo proved over 400 years ago that our logic, reason and intellect is unreliable and that only direct experimental data, should be relied upon. Galileo had dropped two balls of the same material, but different masses, from the Leaning Tower of Pisa to demonstrate that they would hit the ground at the same time, rather than the heavier ball hitting the ground first, as almost everyone, including Aristotle, 2000 years ago, had assumed. Our logic, reason and intellect is not reliable and should only be viewed as speculation. Only direct experimentation and obtaining the same results, over and over again should be relied upon.

Canthe speed of light vary, even if traveling under the same conditions, or in other words, is the speed of light really a constant? Accordingto Einstein's theory of relativity, the speed of light is a constant but ...readmore ...

SelfDriving Cars? Ifyou have an accident with a self driving car, who is at fault? The car manufacturer, the owner of the car or the occupant "driver" of the car? Ihave enjoyed owning and driving some of the most interesting cars made and have always enjoyed the freedom of driving without impediments or restrictions. Nevertheless, if self driving ...readmore ...


Bicycles?What ever happened to jet packs, flying cars and advanced technology that in the past, was predicted that we would be using by today? Whyare bicycles being pushed by cities world wide?...readmore ...

Question:Do bicycles and skate boards represent a more environmentally friendly world or does it indicate a decline in the standard of living?

 I ride my bicycle about 10 miles every day, but only a small percentage of the population benefit from bike lanes, mostly men under the age of 50. Further, most people ride bikes in warm, favorable weather and rarely in the rain, snow or cold weather.

OldComputer Formats and the longevity of our digitally stored knowledge. Are we entering into a "pre-history" era? How can we preserve our computer written records, books, photographs, video and knowledge? If you wanted to, would you be able to read a:

    3 1/2" or 5 1/4" or 8" floppy?
    cd-rom or a dvd?
    12" optical disk?
    9 track tape?
    IBM punch card?
    Paper punch tape?

Ifyou can not read these one or two generation old formats today, how will society be able to read these documents in 200 years from now? I doubt that the current line up of formats, such as SD cards, USB drives or others, will be easy to read in 15 years. The longevity of computer/digital storage before major failure is also an issue ...readmore ...

Euthanasiato be encouraged? I was just reading that insurance companies encourage suicide, in states that permit assisted suicide. Greater profits by less medical bills and life insurance policies invalidated? I suspect that with a rapidly aging population, the elderly will be encouraged to end their lives. Perhaps it will be presented as the patriotic or honorable thing to do. We are truly entering into an age of barbarism and abandoning civilization. - June 2018


Thereis an alternative to population control. Restrictingand discouraging the formation of families in order to stabilize or reduce population infringes on the freedom and rights of every human. There is another much better approach...readmore ...

Questioningthe results of modern science. Forthe last 100 years, we have been experiencing the collapse of real science. Theories, speculation and fantasy is the norm today. By definition, the scientific method is the ability to test and re-test and always get the same results, over and over. If an idea or a theory can not be tested, the idea must be viewed as speculation and not considered true, till that idea is proven without a doubt. Scientific theory has moved to areas that are beyond our present capability of testing and gradually a number of unproven theories have become accepted as fact without any real proof. Further, new theories have been developed based on old theories. Thus we have a situation where science today is largely based on theory upon theory. If something can not be proven, it falls into the realm of philosophy rather than science. This has led to...readmore ...

Scienceand media hype: Anysudden "revolutionary" scientific discovery, even if such discovery is written about in every newspaper and scientific journal, should be greeted with skepticism. Such a discovery should only be accepted after the bulk of scientists have have had a chance to review the discovery and confirm that it is in fact correct. Such things that come to mind include cold fusion, the so called "God Particle" and even the recent stated discovery of a "gravitational wave". All too often such media hype has come and gone without any real discovery or fundamental change. ..readmore ...

Whena scientist has worked for years to prove a particular theory and finds out that their work has been in vain, it is difficult to admit that their original assumptions were wrong. Still it is vitally important ..readmore ...

Thiswebsite displays designs, projects, proposals and innovations by Frank Didik, but this site has also served to inspire people to bring their ideas to fruition. All too often, people have great dreams in high school and college but within a few years after graduation, these ideas gradually become a distant memory. I encourage everyone to do what ever you are good at and try to make your dreams a reality. What people do today represents the future of our great planet. Go out and do whatever you can do, to the best of your ability.

Freediverse, intelligent opinions?Isit possible to have truly diverse opinions if everything a person thinks and understands is told to them in school, tv, movies and the rest of the media? On-line chat rooms and "news aggregators"tend to repeat one another, without any truly new information. In many ways, this is causing a dumbing down of society. Perhaps it has always been this way. ---Feb 11, 2019

Automationand robotics will help return businesses to the United States. With new automation and robotics, which requires less employees, it is now possible for most American Based companies to return manufacturing to the United States, with the benefit of lower production costs, lower shipping costs and a safer business climate, when compared with outsourced manufacturing. -February14, 2018

TheDownside of Robotics Robotics will bring about a fundamental change in society. Millions of jobs will be lost, but only a few, high end jobs will be created. Most former employees will not be employable in this new environment. The same occurred in England in the early 1800's with the industrial revolution. High end weaving jobs were lost after the introduction of high speed looms. Another example is the computer revolution from the late 1960's till the mid 1980's and on till today eliminated the need for thousands of office clerks. - May 5, 2019

CoronaVirus: What I have observed regarding the Corona Virus can be read here. Further, my photographs of empty New York City, can be viewedhere.

PentupDemand caused by Covid-19 lockdown? Unlikely. People are used to staying home, have developed new habits, and after being out of work, will probably want to save money.

Restaurantsand Bars will spring back? Veryunlikely. People go to these places not only to eat and drink but primarily to socialize. If people are social distanced, why go out?

CoronaVirus "Experts"? Who is to say who is an expert when the entire virus is a new event and nobody has any real understanding what is going on. This is like the transition period of Eastern Europe from 1989 to 1992, when so many "leading experts" came from nowhere and gave the public their speculation with truly disastrous results, causing massive inflation and economic failure in countries who followed their "advice".

Ourthoughts are not our own. We are influence constantly by TV, the internet, radio, newspapers, magazines, movies, television shows, advertisements, in school and other places. Almost everything we think, do and say, what we eat, wear, how we act and even our goals and moral perspective, is hammered into us so is our thoughts, really our own? We certainly have the capability to think on our own and in fact, we do have a free will to ultimately choose our direction, but nevertheless, our outside influence is massive. When I interact with people, I often hear the same argument parreted over and over again, and often times the people do not realize that they are simply repeating what they had recently heard or read. Often times outside discussions have little new information to offer since it is so repetative or in on such a basic level. Perhaps the person who can think the most for themselves are people who live in isolated areas, with little interaction with others. Centuries ago, hermits and monks withdrew from the world to be surrounded by their thougths. I do not advocate this, but their action is for sure one way of limiting outside influence.

Knowledge obtained from human interaction, reading and learning is essential to move forward, but how does one use this knowledge while at the same time not being overly influenced by others? Human existence and progress is rapid, but still there are obsticles that slow us down.

 Isit possible to have truly diverse opinions if everything a person thinks and understands is told to them in school, tv, movies and the rest of the media? On-line chat rooms and "news aggregators"tend to repeat one another, without any truly new information. In many ways, this is causing a dumbing down of society. Perhaps it has always been this way. ---Feb 11, 2019

Wherehave all the insects and birds gone? Just a few years ago, when I would drive in the country, my windshield would be covered with insects that had hit the car. This simply does not happen anymore. Has the insect population somehow died out? No one seems to talk about this. Has insecticides or plastics or radio transmissions somehow effected them? Further, I have noticed a large drop in the number of birds that we have in the cities as well as in the countryside. It seems that we are headed towards, a silent spring.

FrankDidik's opinion
OnEducation
Rethinkingschool and our education system

Shouldeveryone attend college or university? ... readmore ...

Wisdom: I believe that wisdom can not be taught, but rather wisdom is a unique gift of understanding that a person is born with.

Canacollege or a university really teach a person to be a businessman or an artist or good in any particular field? ...readmore ...

Howcome all college undergraduate degree's require four years?Should some degrees require only one year while others perhaps six years? ...readmore ...

WeakStudents: I have long believed that in a classroom environment, the weak student holds the better students back. The idea of putting a weak student with better students is a disservice to both the weak as well as the better students. It should also be recognized that not all people have the same ability and potential in every field. Two individuals completing the same university program and having the same grades and degree, does not make them equal in ability and potential. Students should not be told that they can succeed at anything that they try to do.

Whatcourses should and should not be taught at college or university? Cancollege or a university teach a person how to be a good business person, or how to be creative? ...readmore ...

-------------------------------

Teaching: Ifeel that it is not possible to teach a person to be creative or a good businessman and the same applies to many other fields. You can only expose that person to what has already been done and the current understanding of the tools and materials of the trade and perhaps with this understanding, the student can expand upon this knowledge.

-------------------------------

Learning: Myview is that almost all learning is through observation and questioning. This underscores the importance of parents to teach their children and expose their children to the parents daily lives. In today's society, most parents are forced to work and thus the child has only limited exposure to the richness of the parents understanding of things. I would also argue that when a parent is walking with a child, that the parent should not be using their cell phone or texting and instead be devoting their full attention to the child. Schools, as they exist today, have a limited ability to truly train/educatea student and most of what is taught to the student is repeated over and over with little practical use for the student after graduation. So many students today study for years and yet after graduation, never use what they have learned or what they have learned is of little relevance to their lives.

Theplaygrounds are empty but the dog runs are full. Nochildren, only dogs. I have noticed that in New York City, the playgrounds are empty but the dog runs are full. People are no longer getting married, and having families. Where will this all lead to? When I was a child growing up in NYC, there were children everywhere and the stores catered to families, rather than individual single people. The best boutiques along Madison Avenue on Manhattan's upper east side, always had play areas for the children, so that the children could play, while the mothers shopped. We children knew which stores had the best toys and demanded to go to those stores, which in most cases, were the most expensive stores!

Wherehave all the twenty something year olds gone?
Strollingdown fashionable Fifth Avenue recently, it struck me how the average age of the crowded streets seems older than in the past. I would guess that the average age of the people I saw was around 35 years old. Twenty years ago, the average age would have been probably around 25 years old. Why? I will further guess that the answer is that many people are postponing marriage and having far fewer children. Perhaps the high student debt or perhaps women seeking careers over family or perhaps the hook-up culture is the culprit. Regardless, this does not bode well for the future and increasing family commitments is a must for a healthy society. --- Feb 11, 2019

Theaging population is a sad, worldwide industrial nation phenomenon. I am in Tokyo for a few days and have been here many times before. In 2002, I would guess that the average age on the street was about 24 years old. Today, I would guess the average age is about 35 years old. --- Feb 26, 2019

Immigration: Almost all countries consider what perspective immigrants can do for their country and if those immigrants will contribute or be a burden on their society and also evaluate if the potential immigrant will blend in with their existing culture. Perhaps the United States should take the same approach. ---Feb 11, 2019

Lifeforever? It is interesting that life never really dies in that life continues, uninterrupted with the offspring. Science has never observed life emerging from minerals or non living elements. ---Feb 11, 2019

BITCOIN: Bitcoins are backed by nothing more than the gullibility and wishful thinking of the Bitcoin holder.

I believe that the Bitcoin rise in value is akin to the Dutch Tulip craze in the early 1600's and that a massive decline in value is imminent.

Foreignmanufactured products versus American manufactured products: American's will never buy an American made product if the same or similar foreign products is sold at a lower price. This means that manufacturing jobs will never return to the United States, unless there is an import tax, however import taxes will violate most of America's NAFTA and GAT treaties. Any talk of manufacturing jobs returning to America without import taxes is simply idle banter.

TheSafety of Plastics. Over the past 30 years, there has been a massive increase in the number of human ailments such as Alzheimer's, breast cancer, prostate cancer, autism, declining fertility, and other ailments. Some people say that the cause is actually better diagnosis, while others blame processed foods, GMO foods, pesticides, wifi, cell phones, vaccinations and other outside influences. During this period, there has been a rapid increase of various plastic packaging for food, water and even clothing made out of polyester and other plastics, with a decline in 100% natural fibers such as cotton and wool. Studies should be conducted regarding the safety of these new materials, as well as the fabric dyes and determine if such chemicals can be absorbed by the skin and if they have any type of long range human effect. -February14, 2018

GoodCitizenship
 andrespect for our fellow human beings.

Important quotes from my friends from around the world, that I completely agree with and I am sure that most people would as well:

"Donot generalize, but rather individualize." --DanielaD. in Germany, who works for the German diplomatic Chancellery.

"Neverget angry with anyone. Who knows, perhaps one day that person will save the world!" --YukaS., who works for Aoyama University in Tokyo (and Kanagawa).

"Itis important to always remember that every person you encounter has their own goals and aspirations, trails and tribulations and deserves equal respect." --SueAnn M. in Durham, North Carolina.

------------------------------------

"It'sall good" ... is wrong. All is not good. There is an absolute right and an absolute wrong and this is not culturally or time dependent. If you see someone going down the wrong path in life, it is essential that you vocalize your concerns and offer to help that individual. I am a moral absolutist and not a moral relativist.

Producingthe very best and most effective TV commercials The single purpose of a television commercial is to sell the product or service. The fact that an advertisement might be interesting, funny, informative or well produced is secondary to the main purpose, which is to sell the product or service. One should never leave the creation of the television commercial to the television producer or the video editor. ...readmore ...
