Technology Topics for Think Tanks and Radio Responses for Listeners Debated

We welcome radio listeners and readers of online articles. In fact, welcome to everyone, not just to this program, but to the future. Technology is fundamentally changing the way we live every day. It is also constantly reorganizing the free market with revolutionary technologies, creating problems for existing businesses and jobs, and colleges and universities find it difficult to keep up with this technology because it seems that they are still teaching and training them. People should be the last. Stay. years of work.

As a result, people who have paid $100,000 in student loans may not even work in the fields they have graduated from in the future. Statistically it was so, but in the future there will be even more. Well, that’s the essence of this program today, October 23, 2012 – how the technologies of the future will change everything.

The rules are simple; I say, you listen. In 30 minutes I will open the phone lines, or if you read this article on the Internet, leave a comment below. The first theme of the day:

1.) The domination of Google and the undermining of the newspaper industry

I suppose it’s really Larry Page of Google who pointed out that the days of the newspaper industry are numbered. He said there would be no newspapers in the future; these are the words printed on paper that are delivered to your home. He predicted the death of newspapers, and he predicted when that would happen, he said it could happen in a few years, if not in a decade, but in the future they would not. Few could deny what he said, and when he made it banal a few years ago, newspapers closed, merged or simply ceased operations.

Some newspapers have found that they can install paid access to earn extra money, and perhaps the technology we talk about in the form of tablet computers has at least helped in this regard when people can borrow their newspapers to navigate and read online for some. dollars a month or a week. This works well for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and other well-known and readable newspapers. But it doesn’t seem to work for all local newspapers, although some who have their own local market also successfully use paid access.

But then again, why would anyone pay-per-view online newspapers if they can go to Google News, watch news and get news from around the world, maybe even better news, or upload articles from the Associated Press to regional newspapers. . Often, many of the stories we read on the other side of paid access are in any case nothing more than made-up News by The Associated Press. So you have to ask; why do we have to pay?

An article about ARS Technica under the title; “The Brazilian press for Google news: pay or leave our content alone – Google says that getting instructed to pay – it’s like “making a taxi driver pay to take tourists to eat.” Megan Goss, October 21, 2012. The same thing happened in France and other countries, and it seems they are trying to bring Google to the copyright law. You should understand that copyright laws are different in Europe and possibly in Brazil and other countries. In the U.S. we have a case law of good faith conduct regarding books, which seems to be a paragraph and one reference to a new story.

Google has been good enough to direct traffic based on this “fair use principle” with links to this article, at least if you want to know more. Sometimes people don’t, and maybe it bothers the Brazilian press. People just read the first paragraph and the headline, and then they don’t have to read the newspaper, buy a newspaper or pay for internet access outside the payment wall of this organization. These companies think it’s hurting sales, but in fact Google is probably helping them more than hurting them.

The reality is that industries that maintain the status quo are dying hard and struggling to the victorious end, using their power to bring their political will to market. But without innovations, everyone will return to the Stone Age, which means that we could just as well read our text on a fine stone or hard-to-reach parchment paper. Printing has changed the world, and now it’s changing again, it’s time to connect and enjoy trillions of pages on the Internet, no matter what new source they come from.

2.) The best technology for local pollutant emissions.

Recently, Southern California’s A’MD complained about the increase in pollution. But where does all this pollution come from? Well, this came from a number of sources interacting with different types of pollution. Some of this, 1% of California’s air pollution, was carried out of China across the Pacific. China says it’s not their pollution because they produce products to ship to America, so it’s actually America’s pollution, so the United States shouldn’t complain.

This is because China uses coal power to generate electricity, often without the clean coal technology it has now if it wants to buy it in Germany, or in some cases it has already copied and installed itself. You have to love the Chinese when it comes to confidential information, they don’t seem to have ethical knowledge of how it works, perhaps because their society has been copying themselves for thousands of years and they assume that if you were a friend or other farmer, you would share with them your secrets of improvement and technology.

Indeed, in the days of the Communists, they also shared technology and had no patents or intellectual property rights. In this respect, their culture is very different, and it was difficult for them to understand this concept, but there are also companies that know the rules, but clearly violate them in order to make a huge profit. Now back to the problem of pollution in Southern California. Riverside University also noted that much of the pollution in the Los Angeles basin was caused not only by Los Angeles airport planes, but also by ships carrying food to the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach.

These giant cargo ships arrived in long queues, and as they queued, their smoky and oozing diesel engines were loaded, waiting to unload their containers from Asia, mainly China. These big diesel engines have no pollution controls like our modern trucks and cars. They release pollution into the atmosphere, and in those foggy days it will be combined with water vapor and other pollution caused by local land transport, refineries and refineries.

Containers that run locally in California or neighboring states often use intermodal trucks for part of the distance, and these trucks add traffic to our freeways and smoke to the atmosphere. Well, Gizmag had an interesting article; “New Software Improves The Measurement of Greenhouse Gas Emissions,” published by Antonio Pasolini on October 22, 2012. These new technologies and software can help us find out where the smog actually comes from. My question is: what if the EPA takes over the management and attacks certain companies and industries with this new knowledge?

It’s not that we don’t want to reduce pollution, no one wants to breathe dirty air, but it will bring new rules and regulations and fairly strict compliance requirements for industries that have not previously been affected. You could tell they’re dirty all the time, it’s time for them to stop. Of course, but if we solve these problems too quickly, we will disrupt the supply chain, raise consumer prices and face rising wholesale inflation on everything we buy. Thus, this technology helps us to understand our environment and actual emissions from human activities, but it is also destructive because the regulatory body, especially the EPA, has no boundaries.

Then, of course, we’ll talk to union lobbyists and big business people who don’t want to abide by strict EPA rules, and they’ll tell everyone that if the EPA doesn’t break them, they’re going to shoot. Work. It can also damage the economy, so they can prosecute small businesses rather than large ones, creating barriers to entry into various industries, or the EPA may require new pollution controls that would be too costly for small businesses. large enterprises will survive, and small businesses that create competition and reduce prices for consumers will move in this direction.

All this is due to the advection fog that we see during the “June gloom” off the coast of California, this fog mixes with pollution and is heated by the inversion of temperature in the Los Angeles basin.
