Proof We Need Analog Systems As Backup



I strongly advocate that we have the strongest, best equipped, and most well trained military in the world as the best defense through deterrence. Boeing in conjunction with the U.S. Air Force have really pushed the envelope in defeating electronics with this impressive new CHAMP system.

This system also demonstrates the strong need for businesses and individuals alike to have analog and non-electric systems as backup to primary electronic systems. For example, the Russians recently made a move toward old school typewriters for security purposes, but those same typewriters also demonstrate a possible backup system.

Hopefully our military, with their sizable budget, have not only hardened systems against these type of attacks, but continue to teach and use non-electronic systems like the sextant for navigating at sea.

What do you and your company have in case of electronic failure? If our government has this type of weapon, our adversaries which include terrorists likely have Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) systems available for use against us.

I Will Never Forget September 11, 2001

That terrible day in 2001 shattered the innocence for many of my generation, Gen X. We had really never seen war and we sure had never believed something like this could happen on U.S. soil.

I was driving to work in Minneapolis that fateful morning, radio tuned in to KQRS 92.5 FM listening to the banter. Suddenly they interrupted the light-hearted discussion with news that an airplane had hit one of the twin towers. The host Tom Barnard, or maybe Terri Traen suggested it was a small, private aircraft.

Shortly thereafter the second plane hit and everyone knew that something very serious was happening.

At work, I couldn’t think of anything but getting more information on what was happening. All of the news websites were entirely overwhelmed and not responsive. Nobody had good information, were 100,000 people in the towers or 10,000? How bad was it really?

A television was wheeled out into the lunch room. I was done working, no way to focus. Fear, anger, concern, and a complete lack of knowledge made work an impossibility.

The Pentagon was hit. The Pentagon, how was that possible?

Are we going to start shooting commercial airplanes out of the sky?

Then the towers fell.

Tears came streaming down everyone’s faces. Terror. The deaths of untold numbers of our fellow humans, Americans, and more. How could this happen to us? How could our government let this happen to us?

With whom are we at war?!?

I left work to prepare to leave the city in case there was another attack. I wasn’t going to wait around and have a plane hit the Mall of America, just miles from where I lived.

The look of the sky that night with no contrails (or chemtrails), the silence under the landing path at Minneapolis/St. Paul International airport, was beautiful in its own way as the fear and determination of the day set in.

I will never forget what those people did to us that day. The heroes fighting to save lives in New York, Washington D.C., and Pennsylvania. Their bravery will not be forgotten. The wives, husbands, fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, sons, and daughters whose lives were viciously taken that day, will live forever in my memory.

What do you recall about September 11, 2001? How will you remember?

Graywater Simplicity

Freshwater shortages are becoming a bigger issue in many parts of the United States. There are a myriad of approaches to the problem. I suggest we start simply. Figure out ways to reduce consumption: low flow toilets, low flow shower heads, take a navy or military shower, high efficiency appliances, maybe don’t plant a yard of grass that requires a ton of watering.

Instead of spending a lot of money, there are simple steps we can take to reduce consumption. This video shows one of the cheapest and easiest ways to reuse water and keep your plants happy, graywater. You could spend money and take it a step further with a greywater (other spelling) system, but I suggest this is the best and easiest place to start.
