Water Cooler / Interesting Keto diet vid.

Imagine a world where many of your daily activities were constantly monitored and evaluated: what you buy at the shops and online; where you are at any given time; who your friends are and how you interact with them; how many hours you spend watching content or playing video games; and what bills and taxes you pay (or not).

For now, technically, participating in China's Citizen Scores is voluntary. But by 2020 it will be mandatory. The behaviour of every single citizen and legal person (which includes every company or other entity)in China will be rated and ranked, whether they like it or not.

so many nuggets, but SEO for social score:

Sesame Credit already offers tips to help individuals improve their ranking, including warning about the downsides of friending someone who has a low score.

Jobs & Service / More of the same

This I found interesting:

In food, increasing numbers of people now prefer to buy local and often. Fewer big weekly shops mean out-of-town superstores are under pressure and the big supermarkets are trying to lure in other retailers to take space they no longer need.

Introduction to PhOENIX Theory

PhOENIX: The Physics Of Entanglements Networks and Information eXchanges is based on topology and combinatorics whereby all the known “particles” in physics can be represented as information which has been spatially entangled onto networks of vertices.

According to E=mc2, mass is nothing more than entangled energy. With PhOENIX, we have decoded how that energy becomes entangled, how it forms particles, and how those particles interact according to simple rules, using Graph Theory. A graph with n vertices is represented by an nxn matrix, called a coordinate matrix.

WOW!  not a believer yet though. But a fun idea.

Or is it likely to fail as a spam trap.

Seems lightening fast for me.

As ever, I am seeing a lot of businesses that will go with the advent of Driverless cars.  But there are always opportunities.

so what are they?

Here are a few thoughts:

Car prep for a journey.  Car goes to be loaded with meals, and other consumables before departure (Could be done by the leasing company)

... Ok drawing a blank...  there must be more?

But everything I think of, will be dealt with easilly with the supplier. Big screen for work/entertainment. They will manage the bedding ????  the servicing, insurance, everything... paying the workers needed minimum wage.

Water Cooler / Garmin road mapping Queensferry Crossing
« on: November 20, 2017, 07:17:34 AM »
Just come from a trip to scotland, and was running my new Garmin along side my phone with waze. When I came to the new Queensferry Crossing, replacing the Forth Bridge near Edinburugh,  Waze was aware of the new road.  Garmin was not.

It opened in Aug.  google is aware of it too. 

WTF?  I have live traffic and regularly updated speed cameras, but a huge project road like that is still not on the map 3 months after it has been opened.  They had plenty of notice. Its even on my new AA paper map.

Is that normal in the rest of the world?

Water Cooler / Meanwhile the Catalans in Spain.....

 Spain crisis: 'stop this radicalism and disobedience,' PM tells Catalan leaders

Mariano Rajoy says region must stop ‘escalating’ independence standoff after thousands protest at police raids government buildings in Barcelon

Only discovered because a mate is doing the Barcelona ironman on the 30th...... or thinks he is. Ryan air tried to stop him as well.

Water Cooler / Predicting the unforeseen follies of autonomous vehicles
« on: August 25, 2017, 10:39:04 AM »

Full script:

Fully autonomous vehicles? Programmed to be safe, not to crash into me? Hey! I can ignore it. Drive or walk the street in front of it, regardless of traffic lights. Deliberately stand in front at an intersection, preventing it from moving forward. Hold a mirror in front of its video or laser sensors - that ought to confuse it. What a wonderful source for entertainment, tricks, and trouble making. Yup, autonomous vehicles.

sounds like shooting delivery drones to me.

Anyone watched this?  Its a bit terminator... but thought it deserved its own thread.

Traffic / Raw text links. do they have any follow value?
« on: March 31, 2017, 02:25:49 PM »
I guess I should run a test, but it will take too long.   I have the possibility of a link from a site, but it will be

Just raw like that, no link.  now I am pretty confident they will get followed, but is there any juice passed on?

Initially they said it was fine to have links in an interview, they come to post it, and the lawyers are involved and will only allow my business name and no link.

So wondering if my business name as a URL is worth going for.  Any experiences anyone cares to share?

I feel its a shame not to try, so I might go for it anyway.  Nothing to loose I guess.
