End of Summer 2018

The month of August is considered to be the last chance to soak up some final moments of Summer before the start of the new school year. Family vacations wind-down, lawns need less tending, and hints of yellow start to appear on tips of trees. For parents, the moment is bittersweet — Summer fun is over but kids go back to school, bringing relief to weary care-givers. 😉 We hope your Summer held lots of fun, leisure, and inspiration!

From Germ Theory to Spacecraft Microbiome

It was about 150 years ago that the idea of microbes finally became accepted (aka bacteria and viruses). Germ Theory had beaten Miasma Theory and scientists of the late 1800’s were developing new tools to study microbes — the pace of development bloomed. Now, we decontaminate spacecraft & rovers to prevent microbes from hitching a ride to planets we are exploring. The reasons for this is less about Star Trek’s Prime Directive and more about ensuring that life-detecting equipment is free of false positives. NASA has been pretty good about sending sterilized robots to planets. Some of these microbes, however, have recently eluded spacecraft cleaning techniques — yet another example… Read More

Reduce Your Chances of Getting Hacked

The allegedly hijacked feed of C-Span and other odd media glitches have brought cybersecurity to the front burner again–although for some of us it never actually left. Although C-Span folks deny it, no one is kidding themselves about whodunit. The hijack may have been due to nefarious forces (read: Russia). And while we do not know specific details of the attack it doesn’t take long to imagine how it happened. Typical suspects include unpatched servers, routers, PC’s, or even bad password management. That’s because security can be breached through exploits in older computer software and firmware. Solutions Reduce your chances of getting hacked by applying patches, running an updated anti-virus… Read More

Tech trash

This study reveals how much “material for tech” we’ve extracted and produced from the Earth — 30 trillion tons. It’s an amazing amount of tonnage and I was totally stunned when I read it. They call it our Technosphere. Technosphere includes physical human-made structures such as houses, factories, smartphones, computers and landfill. All is not lost though. Electronic recycling is strong in the United States and is growing more efficient every day. In fact, many places give you a good sized payment for your efforts. So the next time you’re ready to upgrade your computer just remember to recycle responsibly — and wipe your data first. 😉 Check it out… Read More

Apollo 13 Mission

On this day in history in 1970 the ill-fated mission of Apollo 13 re-entered Earth’s atmosphere and safely splashed-down in the Pacific. The crew made it home after a long and weary trip around the moon, surviving on virtually no power, no heat, and no guarantee of returning to Earth. They showed us how to handle a disaster, and turn it into victory. We can only hope to handle our Earth-bound disasters with such skill and leadership.
