My view of reducing bureaucracy: #opengov

Open Government Partnership |

For the Open Government Partnership model to work, lots of people need to get involved.
I look forward to "Paperless country (e-Croatia)", a project similar to Paperless office, scheduled to start in 2020. I hope there will be no delays or setbacks. I'm not fully familiar with its roadmap but I hope it will reduce bureaucracy (psychocracy) and increase competition and new ideas in the market.

Automated and open administration will eradicate organized crime with proper settings.

Do you remember Microsoft's "Office Assistant"? - A few people actually used it, but I think now it would be nice to have some guidance and assistance through life (getting the right document from one office to another) to get things done, especially if you are a business owner.

My view of sending astronauts back to the Moon

The Moon is seismically active, moonquakes are often and last a long time, please be careful. New building materials should be used there for the construction. #SaveTheMoon ðŸ˜ƒ

I'm positive that this step of sending astronauts back to the Moon will open the doors to the Universe for many ordinary people as well.

In this busy world, there are some things said unclearly regarding Information Age and Job Market. It's a win-win situation. I want to believe in lifelong learning and in the real value of "know-how", there should be (Universal) Basic Income available to motivate work.  A.I. can fail in some simple tasks (not to know how to do something) and there is no need for the people to feel threatened by Information Age technology. For example fifteen years after the Dot-com bubble people are employed by Dot-coms, it is a vivid industry ðŸ˜ƒ

The World Bank forecasts global economic growth by more than 3 percent for the next year.

In time, the market will be reformed, bringing educated people to populate the Solar System all around. I believe that the problem of energy supply will be solved with fusion because there are lots of investments and results are showing. Allegedly, water was found on asteroids, moons, and planets, it can be a common occurrence.

I don't think that the Universe is the last big market, there must be more. In the meantime, I'm sure it can constrain those big NASDAQ high-tech companies from getting filthy rich.

Reaching & loving (reblog 2015.)

Miles of moonwalks & two phonecalls
She comes to me & then we'll see.

Cheap talks & neat drinks
She smiles to me & want more to be.

No tripping & tender kissing
She looks so pretty, so candy & so horny!

Finaly feeling free & she'll text me!

Get a job Simone (reblog 2015.)

Inhaling smoke, exhaling life
A humble plant has more love.

Endless greed overtakes senseless being
Old-fashioned drama 4u I'm foreseeing.

What to do
Haven't got a clue?

My view of the Atmospheric Incubator (Particles Deflector) as a part of terraforming (reblog 2015., edited)



Although Atmospheric Incubator is a hypothetical megastructure, it's not as big as a Dyson sphere.

Climate summit goes slow and steady but King Coal looms

For an issue that often seems to lurch from crisis to catastrophe, the steady but vital progress at the UN's global climate change talks in Bonn was reassuring. But there remains a very long way to go before the world gets on track to avoid catastrophic levels of global warming.

Use or not to use "WWW." in your website URL?

The World Wide Web (abbreviated WWW or the Web) is an information space where documents and other web resources are identified by Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), interlinked by hypertext links, and can be accessed via the Internet.
I believe you should always promote HTML (WWW or the Web) technology, preventing it from falling into oblivion. The danger is real because these days APPS are up and WWW is getting lower. Still, it is the cheapest, cross-platform technology for distributing all sorts of content. In some alternate reality world without WWW, APPS would be very lonely, almost impossible for upkeeping, not democratic (meaning very expensive intended for a small group of people). Please be careful and always use "WWW." in front of your brand URL.
I don't know why CERN in Switzerland doesn't use it anymore. It was invented there by their employee for scientific purposes.

Is it because of the unfavorable meaning of the original "web" word?


Spider web - Wikipedia

Webs allow a spider to catch prey without having to expend energy by running it down. Thus it is an efficient method of gathering food. However, constructing the web is in itself an energetically costly process because of the large amount of protein required, in the form of silk.

Interdigital webbing - Wikipedia

Interdigital webbing is the presence of membranes of skin between the digits. Normally in mammals, webbing is present in the embryo but resorbed later in development, but in various mammal species it occasionally persists in adulthood. In humans, it can be found in those suffering from LEOPARD syndrome and from Aarskog-Scott syndrome.

Stephen Hawking Thinks AI Could Help Robots Take Over The World

Artifical intelligence in robots could eventually allow them to replace humans.

Nevertheless, please be careful while programming and, as Google would say it: "Do the right thing". I believe that including "WWW." in your website URL is the right thing, it shouldn't be taken for granted.

I'm sure that some Internet gurus call WWW
veni, vidi, vici (I came, I saw, I conquered😃

Human Rights Day - I wish you all the very best!

Please convert to vegetarian due to Climate Change

The conversion from vegetable material to animal muscle is only a 10% conversion efficiency, in other words: for one pound of steak the cow consume roughly 10 pounds of grass.
Paul Falkowski, Ph. D. Professor of Geological Sciences, Rutgers University
Also, there is a recommendation on the World Health Organization website about avoiding consumption of red meat and processed meat:
The latest IARC review does not ask people to stop eating processed meats but indicates that reducing consumption of these products can reduce the risk of colorectal cancer.
Unfortunately, Climate Change sneaked into our world. Please try to act responsibly.

The VASIMR Engine: How to Get to Mars in 40 Days

In theory, the VASIMR can also be used for interstellar travel, it can provide 1g constant acceleration (meaning it can provide artificial gravity). It's being developed since 1977. Thank you Franklin Chang Díaz for creating the VASIMR (Variable Specific Impulse Magnetoplasma Rocket) concept! Overall, it's near the speed of light propulsion.

My view of countries prosperity in the long run

List of countries by population (United Nations) - Wikipedia

This is a list of independent countries and inhabited dependent territories by total population, based on projections published by the United Nations in the 2017 revision of World Population Prospects. Figures refer to the population in a country or area projected according to the "medium fertility" scenario.

Infographic - The height (the head) of the man in the image is proportional to the country's population
If all things would be equal I believe that the best prosperity countries are those with more than 50 million and less than 500 million people, in the centuries time frame.

Salt in the wound & Oil on the fire - why (don't be evil) and when (never)

  • Salt in the wound (never) => Vinegar or alcohol in the wound (might be right)
    => Healing oil or water in the wound (Ok)
  • Oil or alcohol on the fire (never) => Vinegar or water on fire (might be right)
    => Water on the fire (Ok)

Conclusion: Please don't be evil and please never put "Salt in the wound" or "Oil on the fire"!

I have problems accepting these graphics (Flag of the World Health Organization), it looks ugly to me, but don't let it be a problem to you. 


I hope Bictegravir, a new drug, will give good results for the treatment of HIV infection.
