Vast, ever-changing mass of information, cheer and disease.

21st Century Paladin Dojo Info – 11/6/13

The Paladin dojo covers topics from energy producing roads to a new malaria vaccine.
  1. Breakthrough in battle against malaria as new vaccine proves 100 per cent effective against disease for the first time in history
    100% is a good number, a strong number. I like it.
  2. Canadian man born blind sees for the first time at age 68 after he FELL down the stairs
    Ok so… who wants a shoove?
  3. Korea constructs road that wirelessly charges moving electric buses
    Now we’re talking! Can we next make one that doesn’t fall to pieces in 5 years?
  4. Rubble rescue: Tool can ‘see’ heartbeat of disaster-trapped victims
    Bet this wasn’t discovered by a government sponsored grant.
  5. How I taught a homeless man to build an app in a week
    Charity shouldn’t be mandated or forced. It should be done out the goodwill of one human being to another. Great job Patrick McConlogue! (How is it that the British Daily Mail does a better job finding these stories than our American media? Agenda perhaps?)

Apparently there’s a law that says we all have to visit the Disney Dojo?
  1. Go to Disney Without Going Broke
    Apparently we are all required to take our kids to Disney as least once. Therefore, this information is vital to saving some cash.
  2. Iowa Couple, Both 99, Celebrates 79 Years of Marriage
    This is what society should be celebrating, rather than the inane ramblings of overly rich and privileged.
  3. Boy, 3, who heard for the first time. First child in the U.S. to have an auditory brain stem implant
    Simply incredible what medical science is capable of these days. What an emotional scene this must have been for the parents.

    I’m not there yet but I’ll save this link, just in case.

Cayenne Peppers works by “firing up your metabolism and helping you burn extra calories and fat. Nice!
  1. Think Spice: 8 Spices with Health Benefits
    I had heard this about Cinnamon and Ginger, but psyched to learn about Cayenne Pepper. Ay caramba!
  2. Is This The HIV Cure We’ve Been Waiting For?
    So the Mississippi Baby is now HIV free. That’s beyond wonderful! While the general media jumps up and down about a cure, no mention is given to the possibility that God performed a miracle. Some scientists will never get it.
  3. The end of the Third World? New study shows world poverty could be eradicated in 20 years
    “The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me.”
  4. Walking IS as good for your health as running – but you’ll need to do it for longer to get the same benefits
    Makes sense. But you also have to consider less injuries, less stress on joints and more opportunity to watch Netflix movies while on my treadmill. ;^)
  5. Healthy Fast Food and Takeout
    There are plenty of ways to modify most of today’s fast food to make it healthier. The question is, will we?

Google is becoming increasingly involved in products/services outside their starting point. I guess that’s what having massive amounts of capital will do.
  1. Google’s project X: Search giant hints at ‘unbreakable’ superphone and tablet with longer lasting battery

    So lemme get this straight, coffee tea is the new coffee? Where do I sign!?
  5. Did someone say Lego Hotel?

The devastation of Hurricane Sandy is immense, yet not unprecedented. Samaritan’s Purse is a wonderful organization that gets its hands and feet dirty helping, all in the name of Jesus.

    The Red Cross gets most of the mainstream press for disaster relief but the work of Samaritan’s Purse is outstanding, and they comes in the name of Jesus.

    No, he didn’t go all Lassie and rescue James Bowen from a well but the emotional support to a hurting man can not be undervalued.

    It just keeps getting better and better…
  3. Eleven Well-Paying Jobs that Don’t Require a 4-Year Degree
    The concept that college is mandatory is ridiculous. It’s a mindset that’s largely true but taken too far. Most professionals don’t even use their college specialization in their current work.
  4. I’d like a beer, 70-year-old says after icy 6-day ordeal in Alps.
    After that much time, I’d ask for two beers.

Unemployment is down but will it continue to do so?
  1. US unemployment claims hit 4-year low of 357K
    Good news but imagine the numbers if the government would get out of the way and let our economy run.

    But you are a hero. I applaud you!
  3. Sliced Bread Just Got Better
    Science is finding ways to create nutrition rich foods cheaper and faster.
  4. The Week Obama Jumped the Shark

    Too many kids? No problem! Turn that poop into cash!

Welcome to the Dojo 10/23/11

  5. Army Major Helps Afghan Boy Get New Life
    Army Major Glenn Battschinger is a great example of the kind of great people that serve our country in the armed forces. Not to mention the foster family who’s keeping him until he returns to Afghanistan.
