I was born in Long Beach, California to Marjorie Crane and Fred L. Welsh during the last days of WWII. I grew up in the Vassar/Millington, Michigan area where I did a lot of farming in my youth. Then, it was on to Michigan State for a BA in history/pre-law. After graduation, I became an officer in the US navy serving on LST1160 Traverse County and DD931 Forrest Sherman as main propulsion assistant and CIC officer. After leaving the Navy in 1972, I managed a Manpower Inc. office in Flint, Michigan. Then it was on to General Motors for twenty-seven years as an Industrial Engineer. Now, I'm happily retired and very busy with a singing group, Brothers in Song, and with volunteer work at the Bay County Historical Museum.
My kitchen counter typically looks like this these days. Sue has really taken an interest in painting. She has quite a talent for it and I really enjoy her results. This picture is what her workbench looks like. The brushes and paints are complemented by a paper worksurface that might have any color in the rainbow.
This article is the must read source on the new pulseless artificial heart. It gives names, dates and devices used in the implantation of a centrifugal pump type artificial heart in a terminal patient that lived a month with the device before succumbing to other organs failing from the disease.
Researchers Create the First Pulseless Artificial Heart This is a completely new idea to me. Others have reported on a centrifugal pump approach that was used in the past but the impeller on this machine is supposed to be an Archimedes screw that does not produce the cavitation the older pumps did.
This is a very tough problem for me. Should a student be allowed to proselytize their religious faith on public school grounds during school hours and common school activities. My test for this is whether it would be considered fair to have Muslims or Jehovah's Witnesses or even Wiccens do the same thing. I ask for my Chpristian friends help in understanding this by using the following example. If a Wiccan were teaching natural religion or what some feel is Satanism on the school grounds, would they find it acceptable? If they do, then we are ready to allow religious proselytizing on public grounds.
It is a question of fairness. It is a question of doing unto others as you would have them do to you. it is a question of whether the United States Constitution guarantees an individual the right to speak of their religion in public. I believe it's the same as preaching in the public square. It is constitutional and must be allowed. I support this young girl's right to speak of her religion where I would not support the Gideons passing out Bibles in the classroom where no one could leave.
We are a nation of many faiths. we must consider the rights of our citizens.
"The Obama administration's reluctant involvement in the Libya operation recalls the Biblical adage," The other 27 nations of nato hey only 25 percent of the defense bill 4 that organization. this is not sensible for the united states. some say, if we don't do it who will. The answer is let someone else have the chance. If it's that important they will pick up the bill. in the meantime, power federal government is raidng social security, and telling us it's broke in order to pay for such junkets.
Europe has the same problem with refugee's that we do with Mexico. The idea that they cannot defend their own borders is ridiculous.
Swype is a keyboard entry system that lets you trace your fingers over the keyboard and enter text that way. It does capitals and other keyboard shifts very well.
I think Swype will work very well with voice import.It seems to have the ability to quickly react to changes. This is a very quick method of data entry. It requires the writer to think and act quickly. It handles capitals and punctuation and is used on the Android machines.
The interaction of the writer and the machine will be intense, but it's possible that the interaction of the machine and writer will be quicker than keyboard entry. The intensity of the experience should be quite profound. I believe that it would lead to very very quick work.
The whole rhythm of the way you speak and write is changed.You start to speak and think in hunks of words.
