Move Over Johnny Appleseed, The Drones Are Coming

The rapid rise of technology in our world isn’t always this positively impactful.

There are few stories as ubiquitous in American folklore as the tale of Johnny Appleseed.

This young man, who had a fondness for fruit and for feeding the world, would travel to and fro, dropping appleseeds along the way.  With luck and patience, these seeds would blossom into apples trees, thus bringing both a bountiful harvest and a source of sustainability to the land on which the young man walked.

And while the tale of Johnny Appleseed is likely no more than a fable, the ideas of reforestation and resource management are still important today…even as technology begins to creep into even these most far flung of activities.

Now, instead of Johnny Appleseed, we have drones whirling about, doing their damnedest impression of the fabled figure.

A tech company called BioCarbon Engineering has been using the flying robots to plant trees on a massive scale. The drones, which were developed by an ex-NASA engineer, are designed to fire off pre-germinated seed pods into the ground.

The drones have been shown to plant trees exponentially faster than locals being forced to plant them by hand, and the method is far cheaper than traditional planting methods.

BioCarbon has been working with conservational nonprofit Worldview International Foundation in order to replant mangrove saplings in Myanmar. Since the drones began their work in September, the saplings have grown to be 20 inches tall, which offers exciting new evidence that the drones can be deployed on a much larger scale.

While many of us rightfully bemoan the encroachment of technology in our everyday world, it’s easy to see that there are at least some instances in which we can be thankful for it.

Resistance Agitators Deface Trump Hollywood Star with Profane Putin Parable

The “resistance” is but a symptom of our sick society, and we are running out of time to turn it around.

The “resistance” to President Trump is nothing more than a symptom of a sick society, and none of us are completely innocent. We’ve fallen victim to the mainstream media’s “infotainment” whims for so long that we no longer resemble the nation were were built to be.  Instead of free thinkers, focusing on liberty and pursuit of happiness, we’ve shuffled ourselves into tiny little boxes marked “red” and “blue”, or “democrat” and “republican”. And I get it, it’s exhilarating to argue on the internet with one another and gain those bits of validation from our peers, but we are producing a much larger problem than the hurt feelings on Facebook.  We are falling victim to the sensationalism of the mainstream publishers because, now, thanks to social media, we are all publishers. It is this false dichotomy that created the “resistance” to President Trump, and it’s the “resistance” who are dragging our national state of mind back into the early 1860’s, as evidenced by the latest defacing of President Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star. We must warn you, the language ahead is profane. President Trump’s Walk of Fame star got a fresh coat of paint, but he ain’t gonna be thrilled about it … because it was spray paint and it spelled out … “Putin’s Bitch.” Trump’s star was attacked again early Wednesday morning, and TMZ has the footage of the vandals in the act. Around 3:40 AM … one guy — who appears to have blonde hair — sprayed a coat of black paint over the star. Then, in white paint, he added his coup de grace. There was another man with the vandal … shooting photos and/or video. The graffiti is alluding to a widely held conspiracy theory among opponents of the President that the Oval Office has somehow been compromised…

President Trump Contradicts Mueller Report on Key Democratic Concern

The President is claiming that Don McGhan’s sworn testimony in the Mueller report is a lie.

The fight over the public perception of the Mueller report has been raging in Washington and on television for the last several days, and there looks to be no end in sight. The media is doing their thing, whatever that thing seems to be.  They are dividing the nation up into easily definable segments as a way to pit us against each other, because an angry America makes for great ratings. Politicians are certainly doing their part as well, with democratic lawmakers insisting on a nonstop issuance of subpoenas to those involved in the report’s manufacture, as well as some legal requests from way outside the realm of RussiaGate. Amid all this, the President is standing firm in his insistence that there was “no collusion, no obstruction”, even going so far today as to cast doubts on the authenticity of the testimony of his own aides. President Donald Trump denied Thursday he ordered White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. “As has been incorrectly reported by the Fake News Media, I never told then-White House Counsel Don McGahn to fire Robert Mueller, even though I had the legal right to do so,” the president wrote on Twitter. “If I wanted to fire Mueller, I didn’t need McGahn to do it, I could have done it myself.” Trump noted that ultimately Mueller was not fired and was allowed to complete his investigation, even though there was no crime to investigate. Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference on the 2016 election contained sworn testimony from McGhan to the contrary, and this is one of the key points of the democratic party’s renewed interest in the possibility of charging the President with obstruction of justice.
