May 2017 IWSG and Tribute to Melissa Bradley and Sex In Space


Hello all This month’s Insecure Writer’s Support Group is brought to you by Alex Cavanaugh and his awesome and amazing host of cohorts Nancy Gideon, Tamara Narayan, Liesbet@RoamingAbout, Michelle Wallace, and Feather Stone

As most if not all of you are aware, we lost one of our blogging founders this week with Melissa Bradley. Melissa was such a large part of our blogging community in the early days. She visited blogs and was a guest hostess countless times. She was an incredible human being who will be sorely missed. 

Yet I choose to celebrate Melissa’s life and all she contributed to her immediate circle of family and friends and again the blogging community. 


Sex In Space Let’s face it. Melissa wrote some pretty smutty stuff. But as a guest on my blog she kept to her them yet kept things clean and from a scientific standpoint of view as she understood kids read my blog. 

During my Blog Tour for my second book Opening: The Adventures of Chase Manhattan she wrote an amazing guest blog from a purely scientific point of view of sex in space based on peer reviewed scientific articles. It remains to this day one of the best gust posts on my blog. 

Unfortunately, Google who acquired Blogger shut down my previous three blogs for so-called spamming so I do not have the link to post which I would like to do. Bad Google. Evil. Google.

Question Did you know Melissa Bradley? Do you have any thoughts you would like to share?

Humans are not the only ones thriving and taking those quantum leap forwards. Super bugs are just as busy, mutating, and finding ways to thwart even our best antibiotics.

 


Saturday T is for Transplant as in Human Head Transplant

Question Are you concerned with epidemics or pandemics breaking out any time soon? If so, do you think mankind armed with technology can come to the rescue?

R is for Regeneration of Cells and Tissues #AtoZChallenge

Now we’re talking about some real cutting edge stuff. This video is the tip of the iceberg. Now some of this research is controversial such as embryonic stem cell research. But science is discovering multiple ways to regenerate cell and tissue. Here is one truly amazing example:

 

Question What are your thoughts on cell and tissue regeneration?

N is for Nanomedicine #AtoZChallenge


Hey folks, this is an incredible topic with much promise for breakthrough in the near future. I’m no doctor. Nor do I play on TV. So I’ll let my cyber-animated assistant take it from here. 



Question Are you buying into any of these soon to be reality scientific breakthroughs that can radically change humans's lives during our lifetime?

J is for Jobs Replaced by Robotics #AtoZChallenge

Forget about Trump. Immigrant workers as well as people living at or below the poverty line are in serious danger of losing what little livelihood they have. Same with the lower Middle Class. 

The Middle Class has been under assault for decades. Soon, what remains their jobs will be threatened also. How? Take a look at this video clip:

 

Question Do you feel your job could soon be automated and you're handed a pink slip?

H is for Hyperloop

Most of us have heard of this awesome way to travel that will be with us, at least in regional areas, very soon. A lot of buzz has been around Elon Musk’s version he wants to build between L.A. and San Francisco that would be a thirty-minute ride. 

Leave it to private industry to design a far superior product at a fraction of the cost than the state of California’s $100B Crazy High Speed Train to Nowhere.


But Elon 

Musk isn't the only thing happening. He has competition across the world such as Hyperloop One. Here is a clip for a hyperloop Desinged by Hyperloop One that is slated to be finished in Dubai in 2020.



Question Do you buy into the notion the hyperloop will become a safe and reliable and eventually every day form of travel?
