Does your heart pain when you see incidents like street dogs getting severely beaten by people or boiling water is being poured on poor cats? Your feelings for these poor animals imply that that you are an animal lover. It is for sure that such scenes might have made you think of approaching the concerned authority so that you could get these people punished. However, the next moment, you might have thought that your efforts would go in vain because nobody cares about animals. But you will…Continue

Many fictional robots have achieved literary and cinematic fame. I am sure the following list should be longer. Please add a comment with your own list!
Why robots? The working kinds that already occupy factories around the world are merely unthinking machines, but there is serious discussion of what might happen if truly thinking robots are invented. The challenge is scientific, ethical, and philosophical all at the same time.
Has anyone produced a philosophical robot, in fact…Continue

The Research Cooperative has been set up as an NPO but lacks funding to develop effectively and to become a registered, officially recognised NPO.
Our network still appears to attractive to many people, but could be more useful with more activity of various kinds.
So... if any of our members has time and energy, I encourage them to look at the Philanthropy University, which has recently opened shop with a range of free…Continue

Look - I managed to keep the number of words down to four even though I could easily make the title much longer.
Longer means more important, right? Especially if all the buzz words and tropes can be included. It's hard for some to resist the grand academic subtitle. Using a long subtitle is a great way to pad the title space.
Here's an example of the full whizz-bang:
"Don't tell it all: Short titles lead to greater interest and academic impact,…Continue

In the last winter, while making correspondences with Dr. Peter Matthews, I read a very impressive opinion on traditional craft. he wrote, "It's a curious thing.... the timber, bamboo, and mats in a traditional SE Asian house where people seem attached to land can all be converted, in theory, into materials to make a canoe and sail away. Traditional technologies have always been very versatile.... with similar raw materials being used for many different purposes, for…Continue

Plastic waste menace
Till 1983, when the wild fire which gutted the forest reserves in Ghana.
Food vendors used plants leaves popularly known as "agwonomoo" or "Ntenteremma" or Fiito in frafra to wrap food for both the young and the aged. This practice was enjoyed by everybody. However, this was shattered as the plant species were gutted by a serious wild fire in 1983. As an alternative measure, the food vendors resorted to the use of paper bags to wrap food .But this was short…

Natural Machine Logic (NML), a new theory of automation, is the application of Natural Logic of Space and Time as a parallel-concurrent alternative to linear-sequential computing for autonomously monitoring and controlling physical processes or machines.
Computing can only manage symbols in the space-domain. The NML alternative apprehends and manages physical process events in the real-time-domain. It has a sophisticated suite of logic operators and corresponding logic elements that…Continue

Though happy in my in my job, I do sometimes wonder what other people earn doing similar work in other countries... and how that might relate to the local cost of living. This is not a very useful exercise.
It would be more useful if I could judge the scientific and educational value of using some of my income to regularly employ an editor to look at everything I write, even though I am an experienced writer, am also active as an editor, and am not expected to produce work…Continue

Automobiles or Horseless carriages the way we know today came into being in the later part of the 19th century by a certain Mr Karl Benz in the year 1885-86. A gasoline or petrol 2 stroke engine powered this car. It was christened Benz Patent-Motorwagen.
I beg to differ in my concept because I believe 'automated mobility' is as old as the wheel. The invention of the wheel led to the creation of carts that were propelled by animals. We can classify the animal as the engine and the…
Some minerals, like gypsum, hold water in their crystalline structure. The activation energy of the dehydration reaction of gypsum is relatively low and the conversion of gypsum to bassanite (CaSO4•½H2O) or anhydrite (CaSO4) may take place at ambient conditions. Although still unexplored, the use of such crystallization water by organisms would point to a completely new water source for life, critical under dry conditions.
In this study we analyzed the hydrogen (δ2H) and oxygen (δ18O)…Continue
