Beware Sci-Fi. Hullo AI

We all watch Sci-Fi. Short-cuts are taken to make a good story. Danger though because we come to believe in the short-cuts and we continue to think of what we see as truth.

We see Earth resources running out. When that happens we think “Oh well we’ll simply colonize space” Meanwhile we are a clever race, clever enough to reverse the ongoing rapid population increase. Clever enough to better use the sources we have. Clever enough to have a high standard of living, though not perhaps the same. Clever enough to stop creation of long and degrading wars. Clever enough to do these things in the time it will take to find a solution.

Colonizing Space Will be Hard. Will take perhaps a century to start.

To start with, successful life requires many kinds of creature and they each require to be nourished, they each carry in their frames all kinds of bugs & so on….

Meanwhile we have to scratch our heads and be clever humans. Humans as a race compose themselves of all types of individual, good bad etc. & since we have needed them all  in the past we will need them in the future.

We have to preserve life on earth for more centuries & not be the 6th. extinction

Perhaps we will make good use of  AI to help us.

Earth Day & AI for Human Good

On this two-year anniversary of the Paris climate accord, the world’s government, civic and business leaders are coming together in Paris to discuss one of the most important issues and opportunities of our time, climate change. While the experts’ warnings are dire, technology advances can help us better understand and address the environmental issues facing our planet.

Artificial intelligence may well be a game changer if we use AI so its features and capabilities are put to use by individuals and organizations around the world to improve real-world outcomes. There are few societal areas where AI can be more impactful than in helping address the urgent work needed to monitor, model and manage the earth’s natural systems.

See: AI for Earth

Much is talked about the possible evil effects of AI. Yes being the human race some will construct negative outcomes but time has shown that they will be combatted effectively by human good. There are many potential uses of AI that are positive for mankind.

April 22. Earth Day. Earth where Humans Live & Vow Good for Human Life.

Education Today-We Care

We all want our grandchildren to do well in this changing world and it is really changing.

Gone are the days of our youth when the biggest plus to have was physical strength. Becoming less important in the working days of our children who learned control of engine powered machinery we have witnessed decline in the sole need for physical strength.

A Nobel Prize was won by Bob Dylan for the song “Times They Are A Changin”.

Advanced controls are & will more & more be used to control our machines. Our grandchildren will need broader & current new education to succeed the way we want.

Enter the era of Life STEM education. Let’s get our families to support it.

Life STEM I learned is “Life” & in my mind includes all ARTS which, no matter what the tongue is so important to understanding human living, & STEM which is just one of those, oh so popular, acronyms in this case meaning S (science), T (technology),  E  (engineering), M (math).

Residents, Help? – Receive! (1)

Instead of saying “Can’t be bothered”, mentally & vocally capable Ageing Residents here at Crescent Park Lodge  are becoming Official Volunteers to mentally help other Ageing Residents. A rare Win-Win situation.

It is a Win-Win situation because givers and receivers are all having their wits sharpened. Rare because there are few occasions where those who give and those who take are both the ones to benefit.

This affair so far is all mental, but wait for it as I will have something to say about physical.

As to Ageing it is probably superfluous here for we all are Ageing. We come here for many possible physical & mental reasons but all here are ageing, alternatively ask Ma Nature.


History Surprise!

Crescent Park Lodge held our monthly Meet & Greet welcome to new Residents on the thirty-first of March where we had three new Residents to meet.


One of our new Residents, Norma Benner together with hubby were closely involved in the setting up, gathering items to display, building & opening of Niagara Antique Power Association.

The Association property & museum have become very active & popular over the years. There is even a kiddy ride on the property which houses a wide variety of antique power driven devices.

Open to the public and carefully preserved by an eager crew of associates the museum & area are a credit to our area.

Change the FUTURE!

We see in many places that life on earth has gone through many cycles of extinction and then re-birth. That was both in the past and inevitable because we didn’t know how to stop it and build a better future on the past.

This time we have been smart enough to see how we can build a much better future and we oldies can help push that future. We have developed artificial intelligence to aid us and ways to eventually colonize other planets.

Do we Residents at Crescent Park Lodge want to help our offspring be part of that future? Yes we do.

Can we Residents at Crescent Park Lodge be part of that future? Yes we can. Easily too. Here’s how.

Push, push, push. Push our families are educated to the limit of their possibilities. Whether it’s training in hand or mental skills, push. Eventually they will thank you.

Not Being Bothered

Hearing someone say “I’m old and can’t be bothered” Say “No, No, No”.

You are old and wise. Much has happened to increase your wisdom of life. Many are the things about living that younger ones can learn. In your past there is much useful knowledge about living to learn and have lives enhanced.
The old one is likely to say “No, No, No. I have nothing to say of value”. They are wrong. Much of value can be said and passed down, why even talking of events that have happened can often be heard as a good new pointer.

Gossip though about things happening now, and whilst a valid but chit chat part in all similar conversations, goes along with those valuable events of the past.

Go along with your talking but never say about a subject “I can’t be bothered” as you have much to offer O’ Wise Old One.
