The Doctor Will See You Now...Online:

The internet will play a future role in our medical care. You can already check your medical account online, and order prescription drugs online.
Now, in an effort to save money - and save lives as well - some internet services are offering extended hours patients can talk to a doctor and seek relief online A few states are still considering the legality of the service, and some states don't allow prescriptions to be written in this manner...
However, many are in agreement with the service. It is being embraced by insurance companies as well.
The future of medicine is growing on the internet.




July 2014:Not Done Yet...
... Probably Just Beginning Again...

Billionaire Tycoon Carlos Slim calls for a three day work week...
Of course there's a catch - each work day would be 11 hours long, and retirement would be at 70 or 75 years of age. Still, this could still improve the quality of life for many...
Carlos already allows those who started working for him in their teens to retire at age 50, or to continue to wok a four day work week at full pay.

With so many people being displaced by technology, we need to start thinking about alternatives in the work place now....

When Quality becomes "commonplace"...
it becomes elusive....




"Will there be a Quality World for me?"














Loss of Quality creates Lack of Respect....




July 2014:Did he really say that?

Foxconn’s chairman, Terry Gou, has endorsed a growing use of robots. Speaking of his more than 1 million employees worldwide, he said in January:
"As human beings are also animals, to manage 1 million animals gives me a headache."

Do we detect a worker disconnect?


July 2014:
The same month Foxconn was rumored to be integrating one million robots in its factory to help build the new Apple smart phones, it was also announced that Microsoft was laying off 18,000 employees during the next year.
Most of the cuts will come from the company's acquisition of Nokia as the aged tech firm decides to become more limber and brand-centric...
Nokia will soon be replaced by the Lumina brand.

The size of the cuts surprised many of their employees, but many before them were also surprised at how quickly technology made them redundant.





Technology is a Tidal Wave...
It creates both, Destruction and the Opportunity to Rebuild.












Always Looking for Quality...









Quality is always the Best Way to Go...
















The Sun... Although it's billions of years old, science has only focused research on it over the past 50 years...
Lately, the sun has been acting very mysteriously...


July 2014:
Why Is the Sun so Silent?
