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.
We are the readers of Science Fiction, and now our world is sci-fi realized.

I'm a Selma chalk smiley face! I was once the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, long time ago.
The fertile soil has origins in the Cretaceous Period, when the shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico was much farther inland. Over millions of years, plankton that lived in the Gulf left behind exoskeletons rich in calcium carbonate—the accumulation of which resulted in the Black Belt’s chalk subsoil. As a result of all the calcium, the soil is very fertile and good for growing crops.
I truly appreciate the response. Now we know. ("We" means quite a few of us'ns.)
You've undoubtedly read some of the Google gazillions are going into longevity research with Calico. Genomics guru Craig Venter and innovation specialist Peter Diamandis founded Human Longevity Inc. You've heard of the Segway inventor Dean Kaman; and there's Ray Kurzweil. The list of major investments and investors is Looong.
And the websites! Longevity is a whole new category. Like Aging 2.0. And many, many more.

The Holy Grail - REAL Investigative Reporting Money Hungry Managed Care Company in THE Under-regulated State The Dallas Morning News has been one helluva newspaper for a long time. Under the leadership of Publisher Jim Moroney, a huge investigation was started over a year ago. The findings are devastating.
Texas, My Texas Just imagine, a healthcare company more interested in profits than saving lives of babies! Just imagine a "managed-care" company denying care, but still talking the (BIG) money! Just imagine fictitious doctor "networks!" Just imagine, state officials failing at every level in overseeing it all!

Science Fiction has no fear. It treads on subjects you might think odd to be trod. But I am just super impressed with the tidal wave of discoveries about MICROBIOMES. Everybody and pretty much every living thing has a microbiome. They are vital to healthy life... heck, to life itself!
A lot of people I talk to completely underestimate the human microbiome. There's a chance I overestimate it, but I think not. In and on your body there i…
