It's the Age Avalanche! (apologies to Ken Dychtwald).
Big changes are thundering down the time track. We will be the political gorilla. How do we use our muscle to the best effect? We have to be very careful and very smart.

GREAT Election Graphics
The Red/Blue States Map Now Makes Sense
You know I'm a Good-Graphics-Make-Good-Communications nut?
This is NOT a good graphic....
...because it looks like Red States win!
And we all know what really happened.
So map genius Mark Newman, using programs he co-invented modified each state to reflect how many electoral College votes it has to come up with this wonder....
Lotsa votes = bigger state on the map.
Voila! Now you see why the blue states called the election.
There are lots of other great maps of this ilk on Dr. Newman's site. Check it out. Then ask your favorite TV news source why you haven't seen this kind of graphic.

Look at the number of times "HURRICANE PROOF" is mentioned below in the "greatness" plan for rebuilding P.R. I saw today Elon Musk and GovernorRicardo Rosselló are talking "all renewable" power sources. Puerto Ricans were already talking about it, but when Elon Musk weighs in, there is a much higher likelihood of something getting done. And it sure as heck could be built to be "HURRICANE PROOF!" Think about ELIMINATING the old-school high voltage power grid with huge towers and miles of cable, replacing them with "micro grids" that just cover small areas like cities and towns, powered by solar, wind and big storage batteries. Never mind the politics....... A HUGE plan is needed
Puerto Rico was CRUSHED by Hurricane Maria. The more we learn, the more terrible it looks. Like an atomic attach without the radiation. The Caribbean territory with o…
