The Men Who Made Us Fat

The Men Who Made Us Fat
A series of grand mistakes, well intended policy and large scale misunderstanding has resulted in a human health problem on the scale…well, one that is tipping the scales. Obesity is a growing problem and one of the largest human health issues facing our well being and our economy. The arguments are many on both sides of the aisle. The food companies say its the responsibility of the individual. The individual is controlled by the food...

The reality is that misunderstandings and profit margins are indicated as key factors in the bulging problem of obesity. Obesity itself increases disease and disorder and new studies indicate it may be causing genetic mutation that allows the disorder to be passed on to newborns.

Needless to say we need to better understand this problem in order to begin to deal with it. As with most things, getting educated is critical. Here is a pretty good BBC documentary that addresses some of the key factors in  how our food industry changed and how it is still controlling the outcome of our health and well being.

Quantum Computing Has Arrived

Quantum Computing Has Arrived
Now that we have Quantum computing, the next big question is what should we ask it?

Quantum computing is no longer a thought experiment. I remember back in the late 80's when the first meetings were being held for quantum computing at Berkeley in California around the late 1980's.

The fact that a quantum computer is designed around processes in quantum mechanics allows amazing and unique capabilities. The qubit for example is not like the bit or byte of data we are accustomed to. It's sort of like a position in between the 1 and 0's that make up standard on/off signals in computers. It's using the space in between. In a sense, it can think more like a human brain by not processing information in a linear fashion.

IN a quantum computer, one qubit, which is a consideration between the 1 and 0 is interacting with another qubit. In other words, instead of on or off, the output becomes the possibility of consideration of teh infinite combinations of consideration between two 1's and two 0's. Think about that. And then add millions more possibilities to interact with the consideration...

That's interesting.
