I spoke last week how Newton’s three laws of motion can be applied to develop our productivity. Today, let’s explore this a little further.
I admit it. I am one of those folks who engages in political discourse all the time. And, with folks from every aisle. (It’s no longer appropriate to claim there are only two aisles- since the GOP is split into at least five factions and the Democrats into at least two. Plus, there are fringe elements that are not represented in our government. Thankfully!)
Holy smokes! I may have gotten a special advantage because of a life-long problem I’ve had.
A little bit of context. I was born with a compromised respiratory system. Thanks to a mom who smoked non-stop from the time she was about 16 until she was almost 50. And, she only stopped then because I informed her she wouldn’t be coming to my wedding if she smoked another cigarette.
Sometimes, even your hoped for results astound you. Like, Dr. Hannah Iaccarino (MIT) found when she zapped a mouse with induced (but initial stages of) Alzheimer’s disease. The light caused brain wave induction (roughly 40 oscillations per second [Hz]). And, then she found that the toxic protein levels of amyloids halved.
Serendipity. How trained minds recognize that something is different and, in so doing, solve a problem. Yes, I know that is not the definition you will find in a dictionary, which claims it means: the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way. Except the concept of serendipity universally occurs in science and technology, and my definition describes how it happens.
