3D Bio-printer’s Future Financial-Internet-Virus Contagion


This article is written as a wake-up call to scientists, intelligentsia, politicians, media practitioners, financial gurus and the general public on the impending impact of 3D bio-printing technology on the socioeconomic outlook of human civilization in the coming decades.
The art of 3D printing refers to any of the various processes that are used to make three-dimensional objects with plastics, polymers, alloys, mixtures of chemical substances and cells. This industrial robot is capable of generating objects of almost any shape or geometry by following instructions and commands from electronic data sourced from a tablet, android or computer.
3D bio-printing is the process of generating spatially-controlled cell patterns using state-of-the-art technologies, wherein cells within the printed structure are still viable and well preserved. The first patent related to this technology was patented in the United States in 2006.
The manufacturing process follows a sequential deposit of material in a spatial manner through nozzles of inkjet printer heads.
Organovo, a San Diego-based firm in the USA was the first company to commercialize 3D bio-printing technology as the 3D bio-printer was optimized to be able to print skin tissue, heart tissue, and blood vessels among other basic tissues that could be suitable for surgical therapy and transplantation. Efforts have also been made by scientists to adapt bio-printing technology to produce soft tissues and artificial bones for use in reconstructive surgery.
To say that the 3D bio-printer would be ubiquitous internet linked equipment is an understatement because of its versatile potential application in all fields of human endeavor.
Within the next decade, scientists would be looking at the possibility of re-inventing, incorporating or adapting the famous Miller-Urey experiment into 3D bio-printers to enable the machines synthesize or cross-link substances such as sugars and amino acids with the capability of making, peptides, proteins, lipids, genes, telomeres, prions and invariably, living organisms!
As the 3D bio-printer evolves into the realm of science fiction, its impact on human civilization becomes unfathomable.
Would its usage be well regulated by the governments of the day?
Potential applications of the 3D bio-printer include:
• Printing mini organs such as hearts, livers, and lungs as the potential to test new drugs more accurately and perhaps eliminate the need for testing in animals.
• Developing tissue models for research, drug discovery and toxicology.
• Developing essential bio-active proteins such as insulin.
• Developing vaccines.
• Developing more exotic perfumes.
• Developing exquisite wines that even the best connoisseur cannot produce.
• Developing network computers that allow an array of internet-linked 3D bio-printers to generate models in any remote location from the instruction of a computer in workstations.
The time has come for pro-active scientists and activists to begin drafting the framework of regulatory mechanisms that is required to reign in rouge scientists, unscrupulous businessmen and eccentric end-users from turning the cutting-edge 3D bio-printing technology into the harbinger of fast-tracked Armageddon.
What would be the reaction of financial market responses to such massive catastrophe?
Mass infection of international computer networks with malware that causes internet-linked 3D bio-printers to churn out toxic or contagious substances and biologically active organisms would cause a domino effect, a crisis in one country leads to crises in others because of financial and internet connectivity. Many countries with no contingency plans for such scenario might experience the following:
• Emerging data extraction failures.
• Inability to objectively access information that is desperately needed to asses changing fiscal fundamentals.
• Changes in global interest rates, exchange rates between major currencies, commodity prices.
• Recessions in major industrial countries.
• Panic among foreign investors, financial institutions and citizenry who become paranoid about the domestic and international implications of the situation.
• Reduction in volumes of bilateral trade.
• Confusion and protectionism among countries that have integrated their financial system with international financial markets and institutions.
• Turmoil in international financial markets.
• Crash in regional financial markets.
• Plummeting of bilateral trade volume among neighboring countries.
• Long term global financial crises
Eventually, people notably politicians and economists would begin to play the ‘blame game’ by attributing any policy or implementation failure to the ‘global economic meltdown’ that occurred as an aftermath of the ‘3D bio-printer contagion’.
Would such chaos lead to a global debt crisis? Sure, it would!
The complexities of 3D bio-printing technology require the integration of technologies from the various fields of science that necessitates plugging the devices into the World Wide Web.
An internet-linked array of the global network grid of innumerable 3D bio-printers present a mind boggling source of viral contagion that could cause a horrible blood cuddling scenario of total destruction of vulnerable organisms within all nooks and cranny of earth’s biodiversity with no safe haven in bunkers and hidden underground cities.
3D bio-printer induced internet mayhem might also ensue as a fall out of the malware that would have caused proliferation of the contagion-causing-commands to unleash severe damage to electronic data of computers linked to the World Wide Web.
This gut wrenching scenario might be worsened by the current reactionary mode of all stakeholders to the possibility of a dual purposed algorithm that is capable of forming biological cum computer virus. Viruses of this nature might spread much more quickly as they would have been embedded within the normal functional programs of the 3D bio-printer.
Hence, within the coming decade, a 3D bio-printer would be able to spew out a biological virus as well as its malware virtual counterpart in cyberspace!
Would all stakeholders heed this early warning by joining the fray to begin strict regulation of 3D bio-printing technology?
There is no doubt that 3D bio-printing is set to impact positively on human civilization in the coming decades but this mind blowing technology like the proverbial sword of Damocles hangs over the heads of mankind. Its immense threat to biodiversity is too strong to ignore.
Therefore, the emerging trend in human civilization require scientists, intelligentsia and politicians to be pro-active rather than being reactionary as mankind gropes through a seeming blind alley into an uncertain future without fully understanding the impact or considering ramifications of new technologies that are being applied with reckless abandon.

Here Comes The Electric Transformer Revolution


Electric Transformer Revolution

An African inventor and author of a science fiction novel titled 27th Century Fiasco has invented a new class of electric transformers which are aptly named ‘Non Solenoid Electric Transformers’.
Michael Faraday and Joseph Henry invented electromagnetic induction coil in the 1830s. This discovery led to the design of the simple types of electric transformers. But it was not until the 1870s before alternating current transformers became available.
Conventional electric transformers were invented in the 19th century after the invention of the induction coil which comprises of windings of conducting wires around a solid core. This class of induction coil transformers has been used for more than 150 years till date.
Copper has been the main metal used in windings because of its high electrical conductivity, anti-corrosive properties malleability and durability. It can also be employed as a form of foil in certain types of transformers in which foils of other metals can be used alternatively.
The core of most of these induction coil transformers is made of solid or toroidal laminated iron, steel, ferrite or silicon steel. Sometimes the core is left open for air to server as the substance at the center of the generated magnetic flux.
To generate power at the output terminals of the secondary winding, a varying electric current is passed through the input terminals of the primary winding or solenoid. This current produces an electromagnetic flux in the core which in turn induces a varying electric current in the secondary winding.
All conventional transformers function only when alternating current is passed through their input terminals but do not function with direct current unless a vibrating electric contact is included in the input circuitry.
This has made transformers a cornerstone of AC power transmission and distribution worldwide.
AC transformer can function as step-up or step-down transformers in order to increase or decrease the power input at the output terminals respectively. The device’s efficiency is reduced by energy losses such as winding joule losses, eddy current losses, hysteresis losses, transformer hum and mechanical vibration as well as other factors.
The transformer may occur as single phase, shell type or three-phase depending on the type of winding and core arrangement. Large transformers contain mineral oil and special conventional vent for cooling.
Transformers have many classification parameters but can simply be grouped as autotransformer, capacitor voltage transformer, polyphase transformer and distribution or power transformer. They are mainly used to increase voltage output in generators to transmission levels as well as reducing voltage at the consumer end where low voltage electricity is supplied to industrial or residential areas.
A non Solenoid Electric Transformer (NOSET) as the name implies does not function on the electromagnetic induction coil principle. It is made from a mixture of doped ferromagnetic materials which range from semi-conductors to conductors.
The simplest device is a cylindrical insulator casing into which the powdery mixture is contained. A pair of high voltage input terminals are fixed to the edges of the container while output terminals are tapped from any point within the body of the cylinder.
NOSET device functions as a step-down transformer only but has the advantage of function with direct or alternating current input. It is also light weight, easy to assemble and construct.
It is envisage that NOSET devices will serve as a more light weight user friendly alternative to conventional electric transformers in most modern electrical appliances.
The inventor has made details of this new class of transformers available at Amazon.com to allow electrical engineers, DIY enthusiasts, scientists and hobbyists to develop and improve the NOSET devices on a level playing field.

How America Could Reduce Fiscal Deficit And Be More Competitive


Globally, people marvel at America’s ingenuity at representing a microcosm of the ability of the human race to team-work while downplaying their diverse ethnicity and creed.

However, the stunning fact that the great Uncle Sam has amassed a whooping deficit of 14.3 trillion dollars in the dawn of the 21st Century has been a shocking revelation to admirers of ‘God’s own country’.

The tone of national political discus has been raised by several notches by rhetorical politicians who seem to be placing ideology and radically entrenched positions over sound economic policies.

But the parochial interests of a few powerful group of lobbyists, politicians and the military-industrial-political complex has now began to erode the framework of America’s economic and socio-political stability. The dope and vice addiction of the underclass has also exacerbated the problem.

Is a wholesome capitalistic system a la Adam Smith the path to choose? Or is there any wisdom in the treatise of Karl Max? Should America be a welfare state?

To be honest with all patriotic Americans who care to read this article, expect a bleak and gloomy economic prognosis if there is no balance between the hawkish ‘no tax’ stand of the Tea Party and the ‘full-speed-welfare-spending’ of the Democrats.

What can be done?

Below are suggestions on what America could do to steer herself out of the current seemingly intractable financial situation.

• Increase or reduce corporate taxes by finding a balance between basic defense spending vis-à-vis government expenditure in time of war and peace.

• Make more peace treaty and less war declaration, rely more on diplomacy than gun-boat ‘us-against-them’ foreign policy.

• Treat deficit, social security fund and other volatile economic issues under National Security, i.e. congress discus on the issue should be done in camera.

• Enforce Trade Laws and encourage CEOs and other Captains of Industry to undergo compulsory continuing education on collective responsibility to America’s economic well-being.

• Continue the march to achieve the Adam Genome Theory which states that racially homogenous societies have no future and are hotbeds for future conflicts.

• Stop the blame game.

• Revamp transportation, electricity and telecommunication systems.

• Intensify the use of the internet for healthcare transactions.

• Circumvent bureaucracy by speeding up procedures and approval of all company formation, contracts and projects on the economy.

• Make the economy more inclusive.

• Reduce dope addiction and food stamp dependency in the society.

• Make cash, equipment lease and loans available for start-ups.

• Re-orientate the Lobbyists-Military-Industrial Complex about the dangers inherent in tax evasion, unholy outsourcing, over profiteering, short selling, inside trading and scams.

• Government and Private establishments should provide free business consultancy for transactions like mergers, takeovers and start-ups.

• Streamline educational curriculum to emerging job opportunities to achieve a balance.

• Encourage the production of generic medicines and patent-expired items or devices the can. outsell US competitors globally.

• Make strong inroad into the global textile market.

• Produce more organic foodstuff and make stricter laws for the introduction of GMO foods into human food chain.

• Use America’s ethnic diversity and multiculturalism to get a larger slice of the world economy.

• Create jobs around graduates who can employ the unskilled.

• Provide easier career switching schemes for the citizenry.

• Find human chores in solely robotic factories to provide employment for people.

• Make peace and economic pacts with at least two-thirds of states worldwide.

• Undertake talent hunt and make fund available to ease the burden of translating ideas into marketable products.

• Look at economic issues from a global and not parochial perspective.

• Encourage Venture Capitalists to fund certain portfolios that could create more jobs.

• Reduce outsourcing of labor.

• Compete in all global markets, i.e. rich, middle-income and developing countries.

• Reduce redundancy, dope peddling, gambling and other unproductive vices among the citizenry by persuasive techniques.

• Ensure zero unemployment i.e. the state and federal government should provide the unemployed with menial jobs rather than giving them food stamps.

• Ensure that food stamps are only issued to poor widows, orphans, tramps and genuinely wretched people.

• Ensure that your economic think-tank forums include contributors from all schools of thought and not limited to graduates from prestigious schools, Wall Street, Politicians, rich people, lobbyists and members of the Military-Industrial Complex.

To compete with Asia, America needs to place emphasis at creating jobs for its citizenry. These effort is seriously undermined by the menace of drugs and widening gap between the haves and have nots.

When Americans put men of wisdom and integrity at the helm of affairs rather than rely on a clique of profit driven hawkish individuals and over hyped advanced technology, then the country would continue to maintain her greatness.

Kindly pass on this article to all politicians and Captains of Industry in America today.

Road-Map Of Human Organ Transplantation Process


Do you know much about human organ transplantation process and its attendant intricacies? Is your knowledge still rudimentary or are you in need of relevant information that is required to lift you out of the confusion that has been caused by ignorance or misinformation about the subject matter?

Well, this article is purposely written to fill you in and suck you onto the platform of ethical, moral, health, political, scientific and theological soul-searching debate concerning human organ transplantation.

Let’s get the definition straight before we go into the nitty-gritty.

The process of moving human body parts from one individual to another or from one part of an individual to another part of the same person is known as organ transplantation. This surgical procedure has been undertaken by mankind for ages. History recorded a miraculous feat by some Catholic Saints way back in the 4th Century. Modern science has moved on with lightning speed following the invention of cutting-edge electronic devices along with advances in cryonics technology and stem cell research which has turned complex organ transplant surgeries into simple medical operative procedures.

Mankind is now able to perform certain hitherto intractable transplant surgeries using stem cells, tissues and organs from living or deceased donors courtesy of better operative skills.

Presently, many countries around the world have regulatory organizations that approve and monitor harvesting, storage as well as transplantation of human organs within their areas of jurisdiction. There are also organizations that have been approved to keep organ banks or perform transplantation surgeries.

As with all human endeavors, each country on earth has its own way of drafting and interpreting the law that governs human organ transplantation. Because of shortage of suitable organs, an ever reducing official list of suitable donors and elongating official waiting list, many governments have had to bend the rules or amend the strict regulation.

In certain eastern nations, human organ transplantation process has even become a business transaction based on a willing buyer-to-seller basis while the government concerned simply charged a transplant-donor-recipient-tax. Consequently, many criminal cases of forced human organ donations have become rampant in such countries.

Although such a laissez-faire policy may shorten the waiting list of recipients, the risk of outbreak communicable diseases is considerably increased.

Should human body parts become a commodity? That is a pertinent question that every living being should answer.

Despite the highly strict regulation of human organ transplantation process in well organized western countries, the psychological pressure of the fear of death among desperate patients on the waiting list of many organ registries and the shortage of donors have driven people to seek after human organs from unofficial but sometimes fraudulent and unscrupulous human-body-parts-sourcing crime cartels.

What should be done to pacify the growing number of anxious and trickster-gullible patients on the human organs waiting list?

Should organ transplantation process be privatized and the laws liberalized?

Would amending the regulation to a position midway between too much restriction and the laissez faire system of Eastern Europe and Asia be ethically, morally and religiously justifiable?

Would such a policy be acceptable to the Public?

Should donors be allowed to put up their body parts for sale in the print or electronic media?

Should countries legally harvest the organs of executed criminals?

Should commercial trading in human body parts be in the statute books?

Should transplantation tourism be banned or allowed to flourish as long as it follows the free-market principle?

Would anyone prefer that the United Nations pass a multilateral agreement that would oblige all nations on earth to stop human body parts being traded like mutton?

Join the debate. Have your say.

E-Lab and E-Diagnostics Would Be New Innovative Methods in Cloud Computing Technology


By the time you read through this article, a new Cloud Computing protocol would be born.

Cloud computing is a complex system of data compilation, processing and storage which allows the end-user to easily access information without knowing the physical location of the service provider or configuration of the computer system. The cloud computing set-up along with online Voice and Video streaming facilities are veritable tools that make the birth of e-lab and e-diagnostics protocols the next frontier of internet development.

Here is an interesting snippet on the future of cloud computing.

Firstly, let’s define e-lab. It means an electronic laboratory that operates via the World Wide Web.

Presently, a typical laboratory consists of a room or building where scientific equipment or chemicals are kept. Within the confines of the laboratory, scientists conduct tests, teach or perform experiments and treat illnesses.

The constant use of equipment and chemicals by scientists necessitate costly purchase, transportation and maintenance in order to provide fast-track, competitive and cutting edge services to health-care professionals, scientists, end-users and beneficiaries.

Therefore, there is an urgent need to make laboratory more cost effective by developing the e-lab.

To measure soil acidity for instance, a pH meter is required. The price of this device ranges in tens of dollars. However, rather than purchasing a pH meter, a less costly e-lab biotechnology electrode would be provided to the end-user. When this device is immersed in a solution, it would measure the pH as encrypted information through a microprocessor in any portable computerized device, e.g. cell-phone or laptop. The digital information could then be uploaded onto the internet where the encrypted information would be processed by the e-lab service provider into a visually readable pH data. A disposable or re-usable bio-tech pH electrode might be provided.

The above-mentioned internet compatibility would be ideal for certain scientific tests such as screening of blood fluid components, eye defects, enzyme activity, optical, sonic and temperature measurements.

Secondly, e-diagnostics could be defined as the use of the internet as a source for processing digital diagnostic information by cloud computing.

This innovative technique could be illustrated by re-inventing cutting edge medical equipment such as the CT-Scan or X-ray computed Tomography device which requires a heavy purchase, maintenance and overhead cost.

CT-Scan is used as a veritable tool for prevention-cum-screening of cancers, heart and bone diseases. it is a necessity in any modern hospital setting.

Although the usage of the CT-Scan has increased exponentially over the last three decades in many countries, its use is still highly restricted to affluent neighborhoods and nations.

However, with the coming of e-diagnostics, this expensive machine would be separated into two parts. The first part or ‘in-house component’ would contain the X-ray Tomography reader-cum-data-collector.

An ‘e-diagnostics-cloud-computing component’ which would be controlled by the service provider would be the second part. In this device, the data uploaded from the CT-Scan would be sent through the internet to the network of the service provider where it would be processed for billing, 3-D display of various bodily structures and other user-friendly features.

Separation of the CT-Scan’s mainframe from the data processing unit would allow service providers to charge low rates for each data processed through their cloud computing networks.

Therefore, scientists who study biological and paleontological specimen at remote locations around the globe would be saved the hassle of having to purchase, maintain or move a large and expensive CT-Scan about. All they would require would be a cheaper and lighter ‘in-house component’ that coverts tomography readings of human structures into encrypted digital information. Such digitized data could be sent electronically through the internet to the service provider who in turn uses his e-diagnostics tools within seconds to send back printable pictures, videos or graphics from processed data.

Couldn’t this technology be applied to other expensive scientific techno-behemoths? Of course, it’s possible.

The advent of the e-lab’s and e-diagnostics’ protocol at a yet to be determined future date might bring succor to the countless number of people who are yet to benefit from the versatility of a much awaited but yet to be re-invented e-lab-CT-Scan or any other colossal scientific equipment.

Advantages of e-lab & e-diagnostics

• Less expensive and more light-weight equipment.
• Lesser amount of chemicals required for tests.
• Simplified and reduced maintenance cost.
• Affordable screening procedure.
• Accessibility from remote locations.
• Easy equipment mobility.
• Convenient.
• User friendly.
• Revolutionize the field of bio-informatics and laboratory technology.
• Possibility of designing portable electronic devices that could serve as analytical and diagnostic tools.

Disadvantages of the proposal

• Hosts and service providers might have control over the medical records or research data of patients and scientists respectively.

• Health-care statistics or research data of developing countries may be monitored or tinkered with by web-hosts or service providers in the developed world.

• It may cause capital flight and under-utilization of laboratory technicians in many parts of the world as many Do-It-Yourself screening and test kits become ubiquitous.

To allay the fears of governments, service providers and end-users, a new internet protocol might have to be drafted and endorsed by all member states of the United Nations.
Let the race of developing the e-lab & e-diagnostics program’s application, platform, storage and infrastructure begin. Then servers and clients can enjoy a new era of the internet.

That’s the future of cloud computing.

In conclusion, let’s hope that this article would spur the world’s cybernetics movers and shakers to action.
