About Matthew

Bio

There is something about me. I learn something new every day and I accept people for who they are and not their beliefs. I love the Universe for what it really is. You couldn't imagine how much of a Geek I am when it comes to Astronomy and Quantum Physics. I actually have my own TOE aka Theory of Everything. Magnanimity is a good word that describes me. I have been told that I have a beautiful mind with some gold nuggets floating around inside my head. I love Animals and I have an amazing sense of imagination. I learned how to play Chess at a early age and my love for strategy didn't stop there.

An idea worth spreading

I dare whoever may read this, to do something to encourage labor and creation for the future generation's well being. What do you think our children will need to make their lives more pleasant than ours that we could do for them right now?

GREEN TECHNOLOGY + HYDROPONIC FARMING: We can do it right now! Let's go! Pro Hydro!
Wow, such excellent input Paul. I did not know there were already others who thought about this. But of course, there are billions of people. How silly of me to think this idea was unique to just me. I am glad that I am not alone on this notion that we can grow more with such towers. I remember when I was a kid hearing about something on the news regarding farmland and agricultural space. I thought why not just build up! They could farm lots more if they had another floor/crop above the other. This is how my idea grew. I have been dreaming of this since I was young. I am very excited to see this idea is on its way to fruition. Way to go humanity! 100 points! :D

Pepper Spray in Schools, used by Security Guards. Good or Bad?
Here are some more news updates in my local area regarding the subject. One involves the use of Tasers... http://www.wvec.com/home/Pepper-spray-also-used-on-Portsmouth-Students-133076548.html http://www.wvec.com/home/Tasers-used-on-students-in-three-Hampton-Roads-cities-133625848.html Not so sure about tasers. Considering there are several reports of fatalities via tasering. I have two titanium steel rods in my spine, a tasers shock could be amplified by my disability. I am not the only person with metal in them, so this shouldn't be in schools. But it is...

Pepper Spray in Schools, used by Security Guards. Good or Bad?
Idk, I have been through this type of thing before in a hospital for disturbed children. I was there for being suicidal. I was being bullied relentlessly simply because I was different and didn't care to fit in. I remember one time in high School after a incident we did this in the office, they wanted us to make friends and shake hands, but even though I was willing to, the other guy merely played along with it and continued to be a problem for me regardless. I do appreciate your input though, this tactic is good for neutralizing most problems that are of a lower level. But I can go into detail about the severity of some of the fights at that school. one girl punched another girls eye in with a bottle of hot sauce once. yes the fight was over the hot sauce.... Anyways in severe cases I believe it is a good idea for the security to be present in schools and to use pepper spray. However I do not feel it is necessary in all schools. Kids in some places are less rowdy than others. I personally felt safe knowing the security had spray, though it was never used then. Then again, I wouldn't want to get sprayed because I am getting beat up. I think the use of spray should only be when both students or more are escalating the fight by fighting back and or refusing to cease when demanded by security. other wise there will be a slew of innocent by standers if used in every incident. I also agree that your tactics should be used in schools, if we can raise kids with that attitude perhaps when they get older they will not be so rowdy. thank you for sharing Phillip.

I said they would mostly build these near cities, that land is valuable. Don't forget that farm land is also very valuable. I suppose you didn't read my entire article. It shows in your criticism. How is it that the building I speak of is energy costly when it has multiple sources of free energy? You throw your arguments around like insults and offer no structure for your conclusions. Furthermore I would like to welcome you to the community. You must be new here.

Ludicrous? Really? Haha I am flattered. They say that to most anyone who dares to think big. 1. The majority of American food is very unhealthy, I wouldn't want to feed that to anyone. 2. Too much energy to build? What? That didn't stop anyone one else from building the large cities we know now... Also I merely threw Justin Hall-Tipping's idea out there as a future upgrade to the system. I did not imply that could be done now. 3. Each floor regardless of time of day would be a controlled environment depending on what is being grown, essentially the temperature. The only rooms allowed to be hot are the ones growing tropic fruits and such. Yes I know not ALL produce can be strictly grown hydroponically. That doesn't mean we can't give it a enriched environment to grow in with even more nutrients it doesn't normally get and a simulated habitat of its natural environment. What was that about cops? I don't even see how that relates to this. 4. Water as I said would be recycled through the building. This would actually last long enough for seasonal rains. As far as snow that wouldn't be a problem at all, they would just shovel it in the reservoir, which works much like a large laundry shaft. The reservoir would not be directly on the roof. It would be mostly covered and concealed with latched doors to seal it if needed. That doesn't seem very energy costly to me. 5. Though I do agree more people should grow in their yards if they are privileged enough to have it. But you cannot force them to grow their own. A lot of people said they were making a mistake by sailing to sea to explore and find out if the world was round or flat and everyone told them they would fall off the edge of the Earth, that they were ludicrous...
