On this Monday edition of the morning show, Sid continues to explore who exactly is to blame for the Republicans' underwhelming outcome in the midterm elections. Was it the controversial voice of former President Donald Trump that sent things south for the GOP? Or was it candidates standing strong on policies like abortion that scared swing voters away? Sid explores all the avenues, and does his best to get to the bottom of why the midterm red wave never broke. In other news of the day, Nancy Pelosi continues to live in her own alternate universe where Joe Biden is actually capable of holding the Oval Office, Chris Christie outlines what states the Republicans need to focus on in 2024 if they're to take back the White House, former New York gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin is still hard at work following his loss to Kathy Hochul, testy comedian Dave Chappelle hosts Saturday Night Live, and Curtis Sliwa is set on exposing Sid's budding bromance with New York City Mayor Eric Adams. Television and radio talent Brian Kilmeade, Political author and commentator Dick Morris and former candidate for U.S. Senate to represent New York Joe Pinion join the program, and as always make sure you don't miss out on the Monday installment of Lidia Reports with Lidia Curanaj.

Get long-term storage food secured immediately: https://jdrucker.com/chickenIt did not take long for most Democrats, Independents, and Never-Trump Republicans to realize they'd made a terrible mistake by supporting Joe Biden. His regime started taking apart the nation literally on Day 1 of being installed into the White House and things just got worse and worse every day thereafter.Before the end of his first year in the Oval Office, there were already plenty of rumblings about not wanting him to run again in 2024. Many, especially among Republicans, speculated he wouldn't finish his first term. One can make a case that the only reason he lasted this long is because the powers-that-be saw no redeeming qualities in Kamala Harris. At least with Biden they had his dementia as the excuse for him not making any sense when he spoke. Harris has no such excuse.A source that had previously been 100% reliable finally got one wrong for me. She said if things were looking badly enough for Democrats in October that Biden would step down to shake things up. Things looked pretty bad for Democrats all of last month, so this was her first bit of intel that didn't pan out. Of course, there's always the chance that perhaps she was right but Democrats have other plans to "win" the election on Tuesday.Her other intel was that if Biden doesn't step down before the midterms, he will do so afterwards. I've spoken to several political analysts, none of whom would go on the record but were willing to explain to me why they thought this was a possibility. After putting it all together, I believe it's a likelihood. It's far from certain, but I'd say it's over 50/50 that after the midterms but before the Republicans take over the House and/or Senate, Joe will step down. Here are the top five reasons why I believe this is a safe bet.On the latest short episode of The JD Rucker Show, I broke all of this down.

Although we haven't even gotten through this year's midterm congressional elections, it's still not too early to start examining some of the characters who hope you'll make them president in 2024. I know, you don't want to… but we must. That's because corporate elites have already chosen their favorites, and they intend to use massive sums of money, lies, more money, PR slickum, and even more money to slide their toady into the Oval Office, hoping you don't discover until it's too late that their chosen one really is a toad. Take Ron DeSantis. The GOP's far-right, power hungry, narcissistic Florida governor promises to be the next Donald Trump – only more effective and not as nice. For example, his favorite gubernatorial hobby is the Orwellian practice of monitoring and censoring people's speech and thoughts, culling out ideas he deems objectionable. “Don't Say Gay,” is his most infamous dictate to the state's teachers, but he has also outlawed any teachings that might “denigrate the Founding Fathers.” Nor will he tolerate the study of institutional racism in America. Indeed, he has even mandated that social studies textbooks (Get this!) must not include concepts of social justice. Ron adamantly opposes what right-wingers call a “woke” society – he wants one that's asleep. Sound asleep. He recently rallied his right-wing cadre to ban some math textbooks. Yes, Math! They screech that some real-life topics like wage disparities are being used to make math problems relevant to today's students – so it was Fahrenheit 451 for those books. Thus far, DeSantis' censorship binge has nixed 42 math books for “incorporat[ing] prohibited topics.” Imagine what he could ban as president! Did I mention that DeSantis is also forming his own gubernatorial military force – a state army he can deploy in “emergencies”? What's an emergency? He says he'll decide.

Restoration of the Saints (11) (Audio) David Eells - 11/2/22 Destroying Your DNA or Restoring Your DNA     First - We will talk about things to pray down. Last we will see the ultimate cure for your DNA the criminals can do nothing about. The injured will soon be dead unless they turn to God and believe His Word about health. Please read our free book titled, God's Vaccine Deaths are rising geometrically from the jab and the carriers. This fits with the reports of deaths in Revelations in the Tribulation.  Rev 6:8  And I saw, and behold, a pale horse: and he that sat upon him, his name was Death; and Hades followed with him. And there was given unto them authority over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with famine, and with death (Numeric - pestilence), and by the wild beasts of the earth. This clearly show the tribulation is close. In Rev 6:1-4 at the beginning of Tribulation the Man-child body of reformers come and then the first real World War with multitudes dead.  So now we have the DS facing off with the “Earth Alliance" of nations all over the World. This is truly a world civil war.  Obviously, biologicals have been used and nukes will be used (eventually). Riots are coming over food, heating, job losses, stolen elections, and vaccine mandates.  Then Martial Law and all-out war against the DS.     20 Million Dead from the Jab, 2.2 Billion Injured – Analyst Estimates The Vigilant Fox - Oct 10, 2022 (David's notes in red) One of the big pieces of news to come out recently is this Substack piece from Peter Halligan, which then turned into an article by The Exposé. Peter is a most-experienced analyst in the financial industry and is very skilled at looking at and translating statistics into a summary statement. Now, the number 20 million dead sounds absolutely ridiculous at first glance, but when you dig into the data, it makes sense. Here is how Peter came to the 20 million number. So, EU+US deaths (EUDRA + VAERS) = 13,972 + 46,999 = 60,971 deaths and EU+US injuries = 854,084 + 6,089,773 = 6,943,857 (multiple per person, half of which are “serious”). Multiply by 40 for URF (underreporting factor) and then (multiply) by 8 to “globalize” (the total number). Global deaths are around 19.5 million SO FAR, and global injuries are around 2.2 billion. Those injuries are likely to develop into “conditions” and then morbidities. WHO do you believe?   Dr. Roger Hodkinson, an esteemed Canadian pathologist, joined Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson in a video interview, where he discussed these horrifying numbers. These numbers are best estimates, at this point in time, using government data for the global consequences of the clot shot in terms of death and morbidity … Now, these numbers are beyond staggering. To contrast that with history, vaccines have typically been pulled from the market – the last one, the bird flu vaccine – was pulled with only 35 … deaths. I hope people can appreciate the scale of what is going on here. An unimaginable carnage WHICH ISN'T OVER because that number – first of all, is the current estimate. It does not include future deaths of a similar type, which will be cumulative on top of that. It does not include stillbirths. It does not include those avoidable deaths due to having had a one-disease healthcare system for two and a half years, with people not being treated or investigated for cancer …, for example. Those numbers are not included. The numbers from the lockdowns, the suicides, are not included. And also not included are the future deaths that we're anticipating from a rapid increase in the rate of cancer presentations and fatal infections because of immune suppression induced by the clot shot. Those factors are IN ADDITION TO those jaw-dropping numbers that I just mentioned. This is truly horrifying to think about, and there's no doubt – this is a war on humanity. Those responsible and complicit in this crime against humanity NEED to be held accountable. Luckily, we have people like attorney Tom Renz, Dr. Henry Ealy, Dr. David Martin, and others working hard to make that happen.   Biden's Executive Order Designed to Release Transhumanist Hell on America Gateway Pundit by Jim Hoft - 9/13/22 If anyone needed proof that the powers pushing the levers behind the mindless moron who sits in the Oval Office are fully on board with the World Economic Forum/United Nations agenda of biomedical tyranny and trans-humanism, look no further than the executive order that Joe Biden signed on Monday, September 12. By quietly getting Biden's signature on this document, his handlers may have given us the most ominous sign yet that we stand on the threshold of a technocratic one-world beast system. Prepare to make your stand because it's about to get much more intense. This document's Orwellian title, Executive Order on Advancing Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Innovation for a Sustainable, Safe, and Secure American Bioeconomy, will assure that its significance will fly right over the heads of 99 percent of the media, even the conservative media. They will read it and yawn. I plead with everyone reading this article to please not make that same mistake. Here is a quote from the Biden Executive order:   "For biotechnology and biomanufacturing to help us achieve our societal goals, the United States needs to invest in foundational scientific capabilities, We need to develop genetic engineering technologies and techniques to be able to write circuitry for cells and predictably program biology in the same way in which we write software and program computers; unlock the power of biological data, including through computing tools and artificial intelligence; and advance the science of scale‑up production while reducing the obstacles for commercialization so that innovative technologies and products can reach markets faster."   Because of the arcane scientific language in which this document (above) is written, even most of those who take the time to read and study it (I assure you Biden did not) will not fully grasp what is being ordered by the White House. Karen Kingston, a former Pfizer employee and current analyst for the pharmaceutical and medical-device industries, helps us decipher what's going on in this executive order. Kingston stated in a Twitter post: “Let me read between the lines for America. Biden's Sept. 12, 2022, executive order declares that Americans must surrender all human rights that stand in the way of trans-humanism. Clinical trial safety standards and informed consent will be eradicated as they stand in the way of universally unleashing gene-editing technologies needed to merge humans with A.I. In order to achieve the societal goals of the New World Order, crimes against humanity are not only legal, but mandatory.” Patrick Wood, an economist and author of several books on technocracy, has been following the trans-humanist and global technocracy movements for four decades. He told me that Kingston is not overstating the issue. He said this E.O. is proof that the executive branch is now owned lock, stock and barrel by the biomedical/pharmaceutical industry. It will be Katy bar the door from here on out. “The trans-humanists within Big Pharma have completely taken over government policy and taxpayer funds to promote their own anti-human agenda of hacking the software of life,” Wood told me. “It also clearly demonstrates who has the power, and who sets the policies in America.” The mRNA injections that have already gone into the bodies of at least 70 percent of adults in the U.S. mark the gateway to trans-humanism. We have been told this by Kingston as well as by the late Dr. Zev Zelenko and Dr. Robert Malone, a co-inventor of the mRNA platform. LeoHohmann.com was one of the first sites to blow the whistle on Moderna's former chief medical officer, Tal Zaks, who told the world straight up in December 2017 that “We have hacked the software of life,” and that this mRNA gene-editing biotechnology would be incorporated into vaccines to treat and prevent all manner of illnesses. We've seen how well they work, with millions getting sick and even dying after getting two or more doses of the Covid injections offered up by Moderna and Pfizer. With the FDA and CDC now totally on board, this mRNA technology is being included in scores of other vaccines, including flu shots. The September 12 executive order was no doubt put in place as back up for the continued experimentation on the human population, and I expect the vaccine industry will exploit it to the max. Soon we will see the return of vax mandates, this time more ferociously policed and enforced than before. This E.O. may also have been timed at least partly in anticipation of the new pandemic treaty that the Biden administration is hoping to get passed through the United Nations World Health Organization next year. This treaty will transfer sovereignty over matters of “health emergencies” from the national level to the WHO. Wood said the E.O.'s intended consequences is to push the frontier of genetic modification of all living things and especially humans. He believes this will ultimately spark the biggest public backlash in modern history. “Biden pledges not only funding but an all-of-government transformation to support this anti-human scheme from top to bottom,” Wood writes. “It also automatically blocks any agency or department from dissent.” Below are just a few of the highlights quoted directly from the document:   The term “biotechnology” means technology that applies to or is enabled by life sciences innovation or product development.   The term “bio-manufacturing” means the use of biological systems to develop products, tools, and processes at commercial scale.   The term “bioeconomy” means economic activity derived from the life sciences, particularly in the areas of biotechnology and biomanufacturing, and includes industries, products, services, and the workforce.   The term “biological data” means the information, including associated descriptors, derived from the structure, function, or process of a biological system(s) that is measured, collected, or aggregated for analysis.   The term “key R&D areas” includes fundamental R&D of emerging biotechnologies, including engineering biology; predictive engineering of complex biological systems, including the designing, building, testing, and modeling of entire living cells, cell components, or cellular systems; quantitative and theory-driven multi-disciplinary research to maximize convergence with other enabling technologies; and regulatory science, including the development of new information, criteria, tools, models, and approaches to inform and assist regulatory decision-making.  These R&D priorities should be coupled with advances in predictive modeling, data analytics, artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, high-performance and other advanced computing systems, metrology and data-driven standards, and other non-life science enabling technologies.   The term “life sciences” means all sciences that study or use living organisms, viruses, or their products, including all disciplines of biology and all applications of the biological sciences (including biotechnology, genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, and pharmaceutical and biomedical research and techniques), but excluding scientific studies associated with radioactive materials or toxic chemicals that are not of biological origin or synthetic analogues of toxins.   What this means is that human beings will be data mined for their most personal possession, their DNA and genomic properties, and the government will offer no protection. It will actually be encouraged and seen as a green light for biomedical practitioners worldwide. It is the goal of the technocratic proprietors of Agenda 2030 to catalogue, map out, and monitor every living thing on earth. This was spelled out in the early 2000s by the late researcher Rosa Koire and put into book form in 2011 with “Behind the Green Mask: U.N. Agenda 21.” Koire was a Democrat, but she understood that the takedown of America and indeed every nation of the formerly free world, would not be accomplished by the left or the right but by supranational globalists with an allegiance to no nation. In fact, these globalists detest the nation-state model that has dominated the world for thousands of years. Their goal is a “global governance” and they say it out loud in their own documents. Have no fear. Do not be intimidated. Truth will not be defeated. Humanity will prevail against these anti-human eugenicist monsters because we have living souls and are created in the image of a Holy God with individual free wills. Because of that, we humans are capable of having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and the one and only triune God of the Bible. Those who take the bait of the globalists and submit to the world system will in essence be handing over their humanity in exchange for empty promises of safety and security. They will become trans-humans, thus foregoing, at some point, their ability to connect with God. That's a very big step and a decision that will face every human being sooner or later as this technology ramps up. Your very soul will depend on the choice you make. Will you follow God or will you follow man? Above all, this is a spiritual battle. Expose the sinister trans-humanist agenda that these globalist predators did their best to keep hidden within a scientific vernacular that they know will wow and mystify the average person. We have decoded it for you in this article from two of the best Christian experts on the topic available in the world today – Karen Kingston and Patrick Wood.   JABBED UNTIL DEATH: Endless mRNA jabs are now planned for multiple vaccine types, including influenza, HIV, RSV, Pneumococcal, Zika and many more Newstarget.com - 08/19/2022 / By Lance D Johnson Now that pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer and Moderna have caused widespread immunosuppression using covid mRNA vaccines, there will soon be a surge of new infections and a gold-rush for new mRNA vaccines. Pharmaceutical companies have already positioned themselves to capitalize on upcoming infections and illnesses that will inevitably plague an excessively immunocompromised population. Endless mRNA jabs are now planned for multiple vaccine types, including coronaviruses, influenza, HIV, leukemia, RSV, Pneumococcal, EBV, HPV, CMV, Nipah Virus, Zika, metapneumovirus and human parainfluenza. In fact, there are currently 80 clinical trials for mRNA vaccines underway, and most of these hasty clinical trials are already convincing people to take part in these experiments. Big Pharma poised to unleash mRNA experiments for multiple infections and illnesses Big Pharma is already promoting vaccines for infections that were once considered rare, like pox viruses (monkeypox) and polio enteroviruses. As new infections spread in heavily vaccinated populations, vaccine campaigns will continue their cycle of fraud and deception. The spike protein mRNA that was unleashed during the covid-19 scandal was a “foot in the door” to program human immune systems for failure (vaccine acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) and to make more people dependent on a never-ending chain of injections, infections, mandates and medical tyranny. One of the new mRNA vaccines includes an updated sequence of the gain-of-function coronavirus spike protein along with influenza virus RNA. Moderna is currently testing out an influenza-covid mRNA vaccine on 1050 participants, with recruitment taking place across the United States. Many of the upcoming clinical trials for new mRNA vaccines are set to be conducted on vulnerable populations and children, with very little oversight. The pre-clinical phase for these combo vaccines has already been approved by the FDA. Big Pharma plans to continue using these lipid nano-particles to circumvent the T-cell response of the human immune system, while programming human cells to churn out foreign toxins. It's an inflammatory, autoimmune nightmare, and it's going to continue without remorse if the developers and enforcers are not held to account for the disasters they helped create with the original covid vaccines. FDA ignores all safety signals for botched mRNA covid vaccine rollout, approves dozens of new mRNA experiments These new genetic experiments are still considered immunizations and are considered biologics in pre-clinical studies. This is fraud, because there are major differences between traditional biologics (vaccines) and these new mRNA experiments. The FDA is ignoring all previous safety signals recorded in the government's pharmacovigilance system. There are no scientific studies being conducted investigating the duration of the mRNA transcription process. Likewise, there are no studies on the quantity and persistence of these foreign proteins in animal bodies, and how they may burden distal organs, inflame the heart or cause protein misfolding. Furthermore, the toxicity of the foreign proteins themselves are not being assessed in any pre-clinical trials. To make matters worse, the vaccine makers are allowed to use the immunosuppressant pseudouridine yet again, with no pre-clinical testing on its safety. Pseudouridine is a synthetic nucleotide used in the covid-19 vaccines. Researchers found that it can stay in the lymph nodes for at least sixty days after injection. The immune system is not breaking down this so-called mRNA from the vaccines in the same way natural mRNA degrades, even though the government regulatory agencies have promised that it would degrade rapidly. To get the initial covid-19 vaccine out to the public, Pfizer and the FDA ignored serious health risks observed in the clinical trials, including issues like antibody dependent enhancement, heart inflammation and immunosuppression. These issues are obviously going unaddressed again as the government advances new experiments that will continue the cycle of sickness and death in the population.   Triple Helix DNA; The Operating Platform for the Mark of the Beast   The following is a rough transcription by Eve Brast of this video link: DNA is the code of life that gives cells the ability to function and gives organisms the ability to develop. mRNA is a tool much like a text editor that can cut, paste and edit DNA strands. We were able to engineer this as a two component system consisting of a single protein and a single RNA that provides scientists the ability to program this enzyme as a molecular scalpel to cut double stranded DNA at sights in the strand that are directed by this piece of RNA. There is a study that just came out of Lund University in Sweden that is very alarming. They have witnessed the first demonstration in a human hepatic or liver cell line of the Pfizer vaccine in fact reverse transcribes and installs DNA into the human genome. Robert Malone the inventor of mRNA technology says that there is a joint report from the government of the UK and Germany about trans humanism. This is one of the agendas of the WEF (World Economic Forum). It's not hidden and it's not a conspiracy. In these reports they talk about mRNA vaccines as an entry point [into the human body to initiate their plans for trans humanism.] A Scientist who was studying the human genome for over 25 years discovered that the human genome is a double helix and each side of the helix is made up of 72,000 genes. 72,000 from the mother and 72,000 from the father. Combined, they equal 144,000 genes total in the human genome. This is a significant number in the Bible in Rev. 7:3-4 and is a signature from God showing that we are created by Him. Now this new mRNA technology that they've come out with introduces a third strand that breaks the double helix and inserts itself, creating a triple helix and adding another 72,000 genes to the DNA strands which equals 216,000 genes. The number of the Beast is 666 or 600+60+6. Now if we multiply 600x60x6 it equals 216,000. It is evident that satan is wanting to re-create mankind in his image by adding in this third strand into the DNA of mankind. If you watch the Queen's Jubilee ceremony on 6/2/22 (=66) in the video link above, you'll see what she did. She lit up a triple helix light strand that traveled to the “Tree of trees” that was also shaped like a strand of DNA. This was symbolic of their Luciferian plans to implement the Mark of the Beast.   The Component System for the Mark Of The Beast Thomas Fulger - 10/26/22 (David's notes in red) As a born again believer I have been studying both the virus and the vaccination ingredients for two years plus now, through both a scientific, lens but most importantly, through a Biblical lens. The Mark Of The Beast is a component system based on the “Charagma” or puncture of the skin via injections.  It consists of such components as: 1.The vaccination's ingredients which are the foundational operating system. See accompanying short video: (a must)   This video below is the science of “The Mark”.  It is from La Quinta Columna and the director is Ricardo Delgado.   They have put in more than twenty thousand hours of research on the virus and the so called vaccines.  They have had their hand on the pulse of the nanotechnology factor from the beginning.   This video pretty much sums up this science with graphics and narrative.  I do not speak Spanish so I turned off the volume and watched the captions along with the pictures.  Truly amazing information! 2. 5G and possibly 6G—This is the symbiotic radiation that ties all components together 3. AI – artificial intelligence/Super Quantum computers 4. Smart phones and applications forthcoming         This component system of The Mark Of The Beast may yet utilize a computer chip implant as well as the Digital ID laws have yet to be fulfilled with a deadline of May 2023 as I understand it. This ID digitalization will also be our “passport” to making purchases.  Another method can also be used to complete the “component system' of The Beast and that is Quantum Dot Technology used as an invisible patch: Once all of these components are integrated and turned on, an individual will be a captured entity; wirelessly wedded to “the world” and not betrothed to The Lord.  Satan will have stolen your soul.  We are entering the harvest season of the last days and Satan, mimicking the Lord, is taking his harvest of souls as well. This is truly the abomination that makes the temple desolate.  As Paul points out Your body is the temple.  1 Co 6:19-20  Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. My answer to Thomas: Yes, I believe almost all is known of their system and though it may have a setback with all this coming to light, it is ready for the time appointed to bring down all lost humanity who are members of the beast body already. God prophesied it and it will come to pass to gather the tares to burn them. The forced abomination that maketh desolate will come about in the middle of the Tribulation. The covenant with many is being made. The wise will be hidden in the secret place of the Most High.   Divine Protection from the Evil Seed Claire Pienaar - 9/25/22 (David's notes in red) I dreamed Riaan owned a large group of chickens. (Riaan represents the Man-Child body, as his name means “little king”.) He had appointed me as the “marketing assistant”. There were no other employees. (The Bride is the “marketing assistant” because she always promotes the Man-child, Jesus, and His business to every “chicken" who will listen.) (I likely represent the Bride body as my name, Claire, means brilliance which denotes the righteous acts of the saints, Rev. 19: 7-8  Let us rejoice and be exceeding glad, and let us give the glory unto him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. 8 And it was given unto her that she should array herself in fine linen, bright and pure: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints).(These “chickens” are a play on words. They represent the majority of Christians who are currently in the apostate religious system. They don't understand the sovereignty of God and are worried and fearful about many things. Just as Jesus came to speak to these people in His day, so He is in ours.) Three people came to Riaan in business suits and sought to use his chickens for their breeding purposes. There were two men, one younger and one older, and then a woman. (These three represent the DS international corporations who want to use the “chickens of the world” for their own trans humanist agendas. They could also represent the apostate church leadership who is in bed with the DS and seek to place their own seed into Christians.) These 3 were intent on inseminating our chickens with a strange sticky substance. They placed it onto the chicken's wings, and then they would give the chicken a shower and hope the substance would mix with the water and do the insemination. (The chicken wings represent the people's arms that the DS mRNA is injected into. Also, the chicken's wings are what help them overcome the world through flight, but when the seed of men is mixed with the water of the Word, it is powerless to enable the Christians to be over-comers.) I tried to protect all our chickens, but I was no match for these fast-moving professionals. (I really try to protect all my chickens too but some are merely called and others are elect. It's the Bride's job to try to protect God's people from the dangers of the DS in the Government and Church by countering their attempts to defile God's people.) In the dream, we easily had about 1,000 chickens all lined up in rows. Our real-life, white chicken, called Mercy was in the first row. I especially tried to protect Mercy, but they placed this sticky stuff on her wings and I was so upset. (The Mercy chicken represents those that God will have mercy on.) (I received the following verse by faith at random, Eze 39:25  Therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Now will I bring back the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel; and I will be jealous for my holy name.) I reminded them, then, that nothing would happen because there is only one way to inseminate anything and they had done it incorrectly by placing the stuff on the chickens' wings. They were so frantic in their approach that they failed… [to cause the chickens to bear any good fruit.]. (Christians with totally corrupt DNA want to sow their seed in others. Also, the DS has gotten very sloppy because of their hubris and now their deceptions are seen. The vaccine agenda failed to kill as many people as they wanted.) Nothing gets impregnated from an external application. Then I woke up. Thank you, Lord, for protecting your people from the evil seed!!     Words Heal or Curse Your DNA Deb Horton - 10/26/11 (David's notes in red) Below are Cliffs Notes by Deb Horton of an article which reports that science has finally acknowledged that words have physical power. After removing all the New Age gobbledygook, the article acknowledges that Russian scientists have discovered that spoken words alone can and do reprogram DNA. So the tongue conquers the curse or the tongue can bring the curse. Key points quoted from the article, which is translated from German, so the terminology will sound a little strange in English (my comments in parentheses):   1. DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by words and frequencies WITHOUT cutting out and replacing single genes. 2. The Russian linguists found that the genetic code, especially in the apparently useless 90% (which has been called "junk DNA"), follows the same rules as all our human languages...(and that) human languages ... are a reflection of our inherent DNA. 3. One can simply use words and sentences of the human language ... to influence genetic information! (i.e. agreeing with the Words that we are not under the curse, that by His stripes we were healed, etc.) This, too, was experimentally proven! Living DNA substance (in living tissue, not in vitro) will always react to language-modulated laser rays and even to radio waves, if the proper frequencies are being used. 4. This finally and scientifically explains why affirmations ...(can) repair genetic defects.(Our confessions of the positive promises of God concerning us and our circumstances change us. Death and life are in the power of the tongue. Pro 18:21  Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.) 5. ...our body is programmable by language, words and thought. This has now been scientifically proven and explained....The individual person must work on the inner processes and maturity in order to establish a conscious communication with the DNA.(i.e., 2Co. 10:5 casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ;) 6. The Russian scientists also found out that our DNA can cause disturbing patterns ....Stress, worries or a hyperactive intellect prevent (or) distort the communication (and) make it useless. (Isa. 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on thee.) 7.  An ordered group consciousness creates order in its whole surroundings!

Trond's Takeaway: There has never been a more interesting time to be in manufacturing or to watch manufacturing. The tremendous breakthroughs that we are about to witness have been made possible by a confluence of emerging technologies and startup innovations, as well as a growing awareness of the importance of building human-centric technologies. We are indeed at a crossroads with profound challenges in the growing talent shortage, the need for workforce training, an aging industrial base, and the demands for manufacturing competency from the wider innovation ecosystem. We have to make progress fast, and innovations are just maturing to be able to do so at the scale and pace required. It will, again, be amazing to watch the manufacturing industry. Parts of it will perhaps, again, become the industry of industries. Transcript: TROND: Welcome to another episode of the Augmented Podcast. Augmented reveals the stories behind the new era of industrial operations where technology will restore the agility of frontline workers. Technology is changing rapidly. What's next in the digital factory, and who is leading the change? And what are the skills to learn and how to stay up to date on manufacturing and industry 4.0. In this episode of the podcast, the topic is How Academia Shapes Manufacturing. Our guest is John Hart, Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Director at the Center for Advanced Production Technologies at MIT. In this conversation, we talk about John's research on micro and nanotechnology and material science, which universities and colleges that teach manufacturing, the role of MIT in this ecosystem, and why now is a key moment in manufacturing history. Augmented is a podcast for industrial leaders, for process engineers, and for shop floor operators hosted by futurist Trond Arne Undheim and presented by Tulip. John, how are you? Welcome. JOHN: I'm well, Trond. Great to see you. Thank you for having me. TROND: Well, I'm excited to have you talking about...well, hopefully, a lot of different things, but how academia gets to shape manufacturing, this fascinating venture that is manufacturing. But you yourself, John, you grew up in Michigan, is that right? You were close to this from an early age. JOHN: I was close to it. Yeah, I grew up in Royal Oak, Michigan, a suburb north of Detroit. If you know the Detroit Metro area, there are the mile roads, and the Detroit River is sort of Zero Mile. And I grew up between 14 and 15 Mile Roads, so in the hotbed of the good, old U.S. auto industry. TROND: Well, exactly. Because looking a little bit at your background here, you spent quite a few years as a summer intern at General Motors before you got yourself to...or actually perhaps in the beginning, in your undergrad years from UMichigan, is that right? JOHN: I did. After my first year at UofM, I worked as a summer intern at GM and went back a few years in a row in different roles in different areas. And honestly, when I decided to pursue a graduate degree and ended up at MIT, I thought I might just get my master's and go back and work in the auto industry, but things changed, and here we are today. TROND: Well, here we are today. You got yourself an undergrad from UMichigan. And you worked there for a little while, I believe, but then came to MIT with a master's, Ph.D. This is way back. But you won the prize for the best doctoral thesis in micro and nanotechnology. So that set you off on the path to rediscover nanomaterials, I guess. JOHN: Yeah, well, it's a really maybe exotic combination of topics. My master's thesis was on precision machine design, the design of these large mechanical couplings for industrial robots. And then, for my Ph.D., with the same advisor, I worked on carbon nanotube synthesis. But there you have the dipoles of manufacturing research, materials, processing, and mechanical design that have shaped how I've taken things forward since then. TROND: Well, but it is in these unique combinations that innovation starts to occur, right? JOHN: Yeah, exactly, combining different topics. And that's one reason I love manufacturing is that it is the union of materials processing, and automation, and software, and now also getting more interested in the organizational workforce aspects. It's a very rich, multidisciplinary layered topic. TROND: Yeah. And we'll explore this both from the organizational angle, and, indeed, I'm super interested in this material angle on things because it seems to me like you're exploring the very, very small nanostructures, but then you're then printing them on the very large canvas. So you're exploring materials from one extreme to the other. JOHN: Yeah. Well, it depends on your objective and what topic you're working on. There are cases in our research where we need to understand the formation of materials, not quite from the atom up but from the nanoscale or microscale up. And there are cases where we more or less abstract or coarse grain those link scales and focus on macroscale properties. TROND: Well, and then you also focus quite a bit on teaching. I noticed that you actually launched the first massive online course on manufacturing processes, and hopefully, we'll get to this a little bit as well. JOHN: Sure. TROND: But teaching and basically working on the next generation of manufacturers, whether they be the engineers or really anybody else, has certainly been one of the big challenges in manufacturing really forever. What is it that fascinates you so much about teaching this to a grander audience than the usual university audience? JOHN: Well, first, I'll say I believe that the top priority of universities, including in the area of manufacturing, is to educate future leaders and engineers. That said, the number of people we educate on our campus is a small fraction of those who could really benefit from what we teach and the way we teach. And that's not just geographically, but it's also in terms of their role in the workforce. So I believe manufacturing education should address all levels of the workforce. And to get at your question more directly, when I came to MIT, I was asked to take over our core undergraduate manufacturing class in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. And as I learned to teach the class for myself, I was intrigued by this emerging trend of digital learning, and this was 2015, 2016. And I was able to get some funding from MIT internally to create an online version of the course that would be offered free to the world, and probably 100,000 People have taken it so far. And it's been a great experience and evidence of how there is very broad interest in manufacturing really across the world. TROND: 100,000 people have taken this course. JOHN: Yeah. Well, I'll say 100,000 people have signed up for the course. This is the classic trade-off with online courses. It doesn't mean 100,000 people complete the course. It means that number signs up and hopefully took something away from it. It also speaks to the flexibility. You can sign up for a course and maybe just listen to one lecture, but if you take something valuable away from it, that's great. TROND: So I wanted to talk a little bit about how academia shapes manufacturing. And I know that there are, you know, you and I work at MIT, and you've had experiences obviously at University of Michigan. But there are other manufacturing centers and institutes all around the world. Could you lay out this landscape a little bit for us so that we get a sense of where the excellent centers of manufacturing are located? I mean, one structure, just to pick that, is manufacturing institutes, and I know that's sort of dear to your heart for a couple of different reasons that we'll get into. But what are some of the centers beyond MIT where there is activity that is organized in a way that really is something to focus on? JOHN: First, I think of in the U.S., Carnegie Mellon, Georgia Tech, Purdue, Michigan, Stanford, places that have defined manufacturing centers or have a body of work that relates to manufacturing that I would say there's a critical mass of faculty, and students, and affiliation with industry. Also, Penn State in the area of additive manufacturing and product design. It's hard to be comprehensive. I don't want to forget anyone big, but that's a sample of some of the notable ones. Internationally, a lot of activity in Europe; I admire the University of Cambridge, the Institute for Manufacturing there, where manufacturing is more or less a department, or it's within the Department of Engineering, which is analogous to what we would say is a school or college of engineering here in the U.S. And they have a broad set of activities that have been there for decades focused on manufacturing at the IFM. TROND: And if you think about the best schools to get educated in this topic, is it necessarily only the top brands? I mean, certainly, they have different roles. So when it comes to undergrads or even shorter, or I guess even community colleges have a really fundamental role in the formation of this sector, can you talk a little bit about that? JOHN: Oh, for sure. When you think of manufacturing education, we must think of the full stack of institutions that educate the workforce, from vocational institutions to community colleges where the student's goal may just be to complete a vocational program or complete a two-year degree and then exit the workforce, all the way to the four-year degrees, advanced degrees, and executive education. And given how manufacturing is paramount in the workforce and the economy, we need to educate folks at all those levels. But by far, the largest number of people are at those vocational community college levels and then to the bachelor's level. So I have a Ph.D. I love to mentor Ph.D. students. But that's a small fraction of the manufacturing workforce. TROND: What about in the U.S. setting? There's something called the Manufacturing USA, and there are these institutes that have sponsorship from various government agencies, most of them through the Department of Defense. But there's also a bunch at the Department of Energy and one, I guess, from the Department of Commerce. What is the role of basically government-sponsored sort of research and innovation activities in this field? It would strike me, I guess, that historically, it's quite important. JOHN: Certainly. You're alluding to the manufacturing innovation institutes, the MIIs that were started during President Obama's administration. Actually, MIT's work, the Production in the Innovation Economy study, and the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership, which emerged from that, was key in scoping the MIIs, and now there are 16 or so around the country. It's one example of public-private partnership. Public-private partnership is key to cultivating interest in manufacturing and also providing resources for technology translation and commercialization. I think the MIIs have had a great impact on awareness of manufacturing, on R&D, and really applied research in some critical technology areas. But it's only a small part of what we need to do to regrow and expand our industrial base in the U.S. TROND: So I want to move us shortly to MIT to discuss both your own research activity and how extensively you are now aiming to take a more organizing role to kind of get more out of all of the exciting work that's happening at MIT. But before that, I just spotted perhaps an older project of yours that I thought was extremely cool. You were once called a nanoartist, and you had this NanoArt Nanobliss gallery with visualizations. You previously mentioned Obama. I believe you made a NanoArt structure called Nanobama or something of that sort. How did this come about? And, again, I mean, I'm guessing this just sort of testifies to your interest in science communication as much as in the depths of science, which we'll get into in a moment. JOHN: You got it. The inspiration was how do we communicate what we're doing in the lab to broader audiences just to make them aware of what's happening in new technology, new materials? In that case, it was nanotechnology. If you don't mind, I'll tell you a bit more of the story. When I was an assistant professor at Michigan, we were doing a lot of work on carbon nanotube manufacturing, which was a follow-on from my graduate work at MIT. And I admired President Obama, or he was a presidential candidate at that time. And without implying a political inclination, I somehow put together the words nano and Obama in my mind. TROND: [laughs] JOHN: And I said, wow, it would be cool to have a Nanobama. So one thing led to another, and I actually worked with some students in my group to fabricate these little portraits out of carbon nanotubes representing Shepard Fairey's portrait of Obama that was used widely during that first presidential campaign. And I just posted it online, I think one day after the election, and it took off. It went viral, so to say, and was featured as Nature's Image of the Year. It was printed on the newspapers you used to get as you walk onto the subway in the morning around the world. There was a company that would syndicate this stuff, and they just sent it around. So it got a lot of attention. And it showed me the power of an image in communicating something. And, of course, President Obama, that was a historic election. The play on words was exciting, and also the fact that it was a little bit intriguing science and technology that was nano was interesting. And one more thing, a colleague of mine at Michigan then was working in the White House, and he said, "Hey, can you send us a Nanobama?" So I made this frame with a little piece of the real material, and a picture of it from the microscope sent it to Washington. I didn't hear anything about it until I got a call from the White House asking me to declare the value for the President's tax return because he decided to keep it; I kid you not. And then, after Obama left office, I was with my family at a bookstore in Wellesley, and I saw the book, the retrospective book of Pete Souza, the White House photographer. And I opened up the book, and I see a picture of Obama and John Boehner in the Oval Office in the middle of this book. And right on the doorframe is the Nanobama. So it actually made it to the White House, which was a pretty awesome feeling. TROND: It must be an awesome feeling, and, again, I think that, especially in this field of manufacturing which is so challenged at times, right? And people are talking about how these factories are greedy, or is this a great job, or whatnot. And there have been all of these historical moments. But then there is also this fascination around the topic of certainly of technologies and the excitement around it. Why don't we continue a little bit on this strand before we get into sort of the overall role of MIT? I'm really curious about how your research has evolved. So generally, I get that you're combining these nanostructures with manufacturing and materials research, and certainly, you have applied it to additive manufacturing. How would you say that your research has evolved over these years? What are the things that you have been doing? I've picked up on a few things that I definitely wanted to cover. I mean, certainly, you've been working on this industrialization of 3D printing, both as a research area and as a commercial area. Carbon nanotubes must have been kind of where you started. I'm curious where that work is going. And then I saw that very recently, with a student, you've been doing some work that I'm personally very enthused about, which is a plant-derived composite that might replace, hopefully, plastics with sort of a hardness and stiffness that is somewhere at the boundary between conventional plastics and metals. I mean, for me, I don't quite see how all of these things are intimately connected. Where do you go for, you know, where's my next proposal here, and where's my next patent? JOHN: They aren't necessarily closely connected. But I like to say that the themes are typically one or more of materials, manufacturing, and mechanical systems or automation. And what I love about manufacturing, especially in the materials domain, is to control a process, to understand a process, and then to do something new, you need to investigate its fundamentals. And sometimes, you need to design a new instrument or machine to get the job done. So our work is often problem-inspired or opportunity-inspired. Like, the cellulose work that you mentioned recently was actually sponsored by a large consumer products company interested in a more sustainable composite material that could be used in packaging. And we looked at potential routes to formulating different materials, and we landed on cellulose. And then, we developed a formulation, a mixture of cellulose nanocrystals and polymers that ended up having exciting mechanical properties, particularly very high hardness, and toughness, more so than existing polymers. And another unifying theme is scalability. It's important not to worry too much about scalability in the early stage of research, and there's lots of amazing research that's just for science. But we like to do things that we hope will be scalable one day, so choosing ingredients that would be cost-effective or using techniques that could be industrialized, even if the techniques look very different in the lab. And maybe I've lacked to give a precise definition or focus, but I think it's also indicative of the broad span of manufacturing. And manufacturing has many, many dimensions beyond the ones that we work on in my lab at MIT. TROND: Well, you kind of answered a question that I was going to ask, too, which is it doesn't seem like you start in a linear fashion, you know, in other words, you start with some sort of basic problem that everybody in their literature has established and then you move to this, that, or the other. Sometimes it comes from a company. The challenge comes from a company, but you formulate the solution completely. It seems to me that students also have lots of ideas and kind of formulate projects. Talk to me a little bit about this process of where the problem comes from versus where the solution and impact comes from because you seem to...sometimes the output truly is just, you know, like, in this case, art or a physical prototype, and you're sort of happy with that outcome. Other times, you're actually delivering something into, presumably, eventually, an assembly line. JOHN: Yeah. And we work as hard as we can on technology translation, both in terms of the knowledge that we publish but also in terms of the steps that we take to spin technology out. You're right; the early stage is very important. And I like to often see the early stage as a collaboration between myself and the researchers. And in many cases, the core idea we end up pursuing comes largely from the research or the research team. In many cases, it might be seeded by the interest of a sponsor or an idea I have, and then we work together on actually figuring out what's the approach, what are the outcomes, and what's the path to success. MID-ROLL AD: In the new book from Wiley, Augmented Lean: A Human-Centric Framework for Managing Frontline Operations, serial startup founder Dr. Natan Linder and futurist podcaster Dr. Trond Arne Undheim deliver an urgent and incisive exploration of when, how, and why to augment your workforce with technology, and how to do it in a way that scales, maintains innovation, and allows the organization to thrive. The key thing is to prioritize humans over machines. Here's what Klaus Schwab, Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, says about the book: "Augmented Lean is an important puzzle piece in the fourth industrial revolution." Find out more on www.augmentedlean.com, and pick up the book in a bookstore near you. TROND: You have commercialized at least two ventures together with others at MIT and external people as well that I know about for sure. I wanted to just briefly mention both Desktop Metal and VulcanForms. Let's perhaps cover Desktop Metal first, so that's a 3D printing company. Tell me how that got started and what your role was there. JOHN: So I was very fortunate to be a member of the founding team of Desktop Metal. So there were seven co-founders, and we launched the company in early fall of 2015. And Ric Fulop, who's the lead founder and CEO, approached me at that time, and he heard that I was interested in working on 3D printing and, of course, knew a bit about my background in manufacturing and machine design and asked me to jump on board. And funny story, how just connections persist over the years; I actually knew Ric when I was a grad student because I was doing my carbon nanotube work using the space of now my colleague, Yet-Ming Chiang. And at that time, Yet and Ric were launching A123 Systems, a successful battery company. So that was a reason why I think Ric knew to get in touch with me when he heard about me. And serendipity was a great experience. TROND: Serendipity when you are in the right places, right? If you're hanging around Yet-Ming Chang, yeah, that's right, very special serendipity. Tell me a little bit about VulcanForms. Until very recently, you couldn't talk so much about it. Nowadays, you did go out in New York Times. I've read that piece. So there is a little bit more detail around it. Let me ask a very basic and perhaps dumb question, large-scale metal 3D printing, what's the big deal there? I thought didn't Desktop Metal do 3D printing? So it's kind of a dumb question. Why is there a second company? Is there really such a variety? I think that the regular person just thinks 3D printing is 3D printing. JOHN: 3D printing is a broad and deep subject. Like, first of all, 3D printing processes exist for polymers, for metals, for many other materials. And there are even several 3D printing technologies for metals. I'll tell the origin story for VulcanForms quickly if that's okay, and then get back to the question. So when I came to MIT as faculty in 2013, I had been a professor at Michigan for a few years. And I landed, and one of the topics I thought of looking into was 3D printing. I was actually asked by a colleague to teach a class not on 3D printing, but I was able to propose the topic. And in that class, there were many incredible students. One of them, named Martin, stuck around at MIT after finishing his master's in manufacturing, and we ended up comparing notes and launching VulcanForms in 2015, a little bit before Desktop Metal came to be, but not that long before. And we stayed quiet for seven years. We raised our seed round a couple of years ago. And the focus of the company is number one, laser-based metal additive manufacturing. And second, while we've built our own additive technology, we're a manufacturing company. So we produce parts at scale, and that is a real need and has been a barrier to growth of the additive industry. There's so much interest and uptake in additive. But the ability to achieve high-quality production using additive as the formative step in the process at scale has largely been untouched. So from the early days, we thought that we could approach the market with that plan to become a manufacturing company. TROND: Staying quiet for seven years that can't have been [laughs] particularly easy. JOHN: Yeah, it's not easy, but it's very, very worth it because we got to focus. And also, there are different boundary conditions that allow you to keep your head down and get work done, and one of them is having great and patient investors who believe in your approach and who see the progress behind the curtain. And as a result, we felt we would hold off launch. And we were fortunate to get picked up by the New York Times earlier this summer. And now we're excited to talk about what we do. TROND: Yeah, that article did hint a little bit at what your printers can print that others cannot and kind of at what scale. Can you give some examples of the kinds of things that you are now contracted to print or are perhaps already printing? JOHN: So the company is focused on a variety of industries, generally industries where high-value metal parts are difficult to manufacture and where there is a real pent-up need for more agile, high-value manufacturing medical devices such as medical implants, semiconductor components, not microchips but cooling devices for various computer systems. We have a lot of business in the aerospace and defense area, working with several of the defense primes, both on additive parts and on machining, honestly. The company, as described in the New York Times article, we acquired a machine shop in Newburyport, Massachusetts, earlier this year. And that was twofold, one because in order to deliver finished parts, you need to often integrate additive with machining. So it's not just 3D printing; it's building a stack of software and physical processes to create a finished part. Second, advanced machining is also a digital manufacturing technology, and as a company, we're very interested in applying our capabilities as a digital manufacturing organization to the area of CNC machining as well. TROND: So, taking that experience then from these two companies and your vast interest and research area plus your interest in communication, what is it that you're now focused on at MIT more largely? That's another kind of secret that's slowly being let out. But you have had this notion and have shared this with me and others, obviously. There was a seminar open to whoever was invited, I think, but not a full public launch. Manufacturing at MIT has historically been quite important, but you think that there's even more, to be done. You lined up a couple of the projects, but there are many more things that MIT has done. Could you maybe just briefly address the role of MIT historically in influencing manufacturing? And what else is it that you now want to accomplish? JOHN: Yeah, for sure. And since I came to MIT nine years ago, I've learned of the incredibly rich history that the institute has in manufacturing, both on the technology side, you know, in the mid-1950s, building among the first CNC machines, ultimately transformed commercial aviation in 1980 building one of the first 3D printers in the world, and so on. But not only that, but also, historic accomplishments in the social sciences, understanding the globalization of manufacturing, you know, what delineated the U.S. versus the Japanese auto industry in the 1980s. What is the intrinsic role of manufacturing in innovation, the production, and innovation economy led by my colleague Suzanne Berger in around 2010. And then broader than manufacturing, though, the work of the future study just a couple of years ago looking at the connection between technology and work. So looking at all those accomplishments and understanding the present moment that we're in, which I can also reflect on later, I've been exploring how to create a new presence for manufacturing at MIT. And the term manufacturing at MIT is more or less a placeholder representing the community of faculty and students across disciplines, both technology and social sciences, that touch on all the dimensions of manufacturing. So as we've returned from Zoom life to more in-person life, I've been making my way around campus and building a team of folks, faculty advisors, external advisors, industry partners, and so on to hopefully put forward a new center at MIT that has a focus on manufacturing across the disciplines. And this is not to replace existing activities but just to augment those activities and bring industry together with us to support research, to lean deeply into workforce training programs, to collaborate with public organizations at the state and federal level and internationally, and also hope to cultivate more entrepreneurship. Because my experience, fortunate experience as an entrepreneur over the past several years tells me that there's opportunity for more new companies that contribute to the future of manufacturing, whether they're manufacturing companies actually making stuff, whether they be software and services companies. Or perhaps the biggest need is hardware companies for whom manufacturing is a route to success. So you may not be manufacturing something yourself, or you may not be manufacturing goods for others, but understanding manufacturing and scaling a process is really key. And that intellectual DNA of manufacturing is more cross-disciplinary than ever. And I've observed over my nine years at MIT how there's just more engagement in manufacturing as a discipline, as this cross-disciplinary theme. And that's an area where I feel such a center can really play a role by adding something to the intellectual community across the institute. TROND: There are so many things that come to mind when you produce this narrative because, I guess, on the one hand, manufacturing is a little bit of everything. On the other hand, it is clearly very delineated because it's all about making things and making them at scale. And there's a whole industry, but, of course, every industry almost has a manufacturing arm. How do you delineate the subject of manufacturing? And I'm sort of curious, you know, at MIT, if you use a broad church definition, almost everybody there contributes to manufacturing. So that would be both a challenge and an opportunity, I guess. JOHN: Yeah, you're exactly right. So, first, within MIT, we have many collaborations with different departments and other research centers. And the nature of the collaboration depends on what the focus is. Second, when it comes to interfacing with industry, I've come to look at industry as kind of a grid where you could say the columns are the end users, say, aviation and space or consumer or construction. And then, the horizontal lines in the grid are technologies, robotics and automation, 3D printing, software and IT, et cetera. And getting a little bit in the weeds of the organization here, so first, we're working on launching a flagship industry consortium, or we're recruiting flagship industry partners for a new center. And those will be companies, world-leading manufacturing companies across the grid. Second, we will operate consortia in different technology in industry areas that may be located within our center that may be in collaboration with others around MIT to really drive focus. And when industry comes and interacts with us, I want them to understand how their business fits into the broader spectrum. And we find particularly in the work related to 3D printing that companies appreciate being connected with peers across the value chain. They say 3D printing is materials at the frontend and finished parts at the backend, and there are some machines and software, and so on. When you bring companies together across their value chain, across their supply chain, under the umbrella of an academic organization with this sort of problem-solving mindset, we find that that can be valuable to the companies that we partner with. TROND: And, John, there's obviously a scale at MIT that's hard to replicate for any university or school just because there are so many people involved in technical innovation. But on the other hand, I would say there has been a sense that other sectors if you could call them that, have always been moving much faster than manufacturing. And, you know, okay, fine, there are industrial revolutions, but the ones we talk about now as industrial revolutions are more, you know, they are maybe on the software side and stuff, but that the core of manufacturing it may be because of its inherent nature. It's complex; it's about physical infrastructure, at least a lot of it still. So it's hard to innovate in that sector. Would you say that one of the ambitions you have with this manufacturing at MIT initiative is to speed up that innovation? And if so, what are the mechanisms that would bring manufacturing as a whole, I guess, on an even faster sort of clip? JOHN: First, if I look within MIT, we see the opportunity to combine the physical side, the mechanical engineering, the material science, with the digital side, with software, and controls, and computation. And that's an area where it's clear that new technologies can be de-risked, can be scaled more quickly. And it really requires this symbiosis of the physical processes and the digital intelligence. Second, I think we can do better research. I can do better research by understanding where the big problems and opportunities are. And by connecting closely with industry, forming networks with various stakeholders, we can define better problems that we can ask our students to solve. And third, I've noticed, especially over the past year with all the geopolitical discussions and the imperative for sustainability, that we're at a time where there's this alignment between industry and government and the investment community and manufacturing, physical manufacturing, physical industry is vital. We can't do enough there to catch up, to grow. And I think that's a real opportune moment to recognize that while I think the pendulum has swung to the digital world and software over the past 10, 20 years, life has changed for the better in so many ways. We have to focus on the physical world now, especially to address the climate crisis, and also think of how we can improve economic equality across our communities, how we can provide better job opportunities, how we can deliver education to individuals who don't have the opportunity to go to university or don't have the resources to travel, all those things. So that's another reason why, one, I see manufacturing as this rich, cross-disciplinary topic that I can file a patent and write some exciting papers and graduate with a Ph.D., but it means so much more to feel technology at scale. And second, you need the intersection of these disciplines to understand not just technology but organizations and human dynamics to create change and create positive impact. TROND: So I realized that we're going to have to cover... there are so many other questions I have for you is what I'm trying to say here. But my last question in this round, I think, is going to be one on...we briefly mentioned, or you briefly talked about augmentation. And you know that I have a special interest; obviously, the topic of the podcast and the title is augmentation. So there is something here about the tension, perhaps between augmentation and automation. How do you see that tension or the relationship between working from the human-centric perspective that technologies are in service to perhaps augment people and processes versus this automation perspective which maybe takes, and I'm paraphrasing here, a little bit more of an efficiency approach and tries to go for machine scale first and then just adjust everything later? How do you see those two things now, as perhaps, you know, manufacturing is coming into another kind of growth moment? JOHN: If I understood you correctly, I don't think they're mutually exclusive, right? Certainly -- TROND: No. Not necessarily. Not necessarily. JOHN: Certainly, manufacturing will become more automated in places where automation makes sense. Certainly, automation is challenging to implement to scale, to get right. But in some cases, the driver to more efficient technology-first manufacturing is automation. In other cases, and hand in hand with that, human workers and businesses, organizations can only become more effective and efficient, working in synergy with data and automation. I'll use the example of someone overseeing a 3D printer, a state-of-the-art 3D printer, and watching the screens to make sure everything is going well and doing a better job by being presented with information that shows, hey, this might be a problem, or there are no problems here, but being empowered to make that data-driven decision. And also, from my work outside of MIT, we find that folks who do best operating that advanced equipment with digital data might have a machining background. They might also have a passion for gaming on the side. So they might be used to sensing and responding to dynamic digital events. And that's another comment on skills evolving in the workforce too. TROND: Well, I mean, one thing that is for certain is that if MIT gets its act together on manufacturing, things will happen. I trust that we're going to have to come back and talk about a lot of emerging projects here in the coming years if you get people lined up. So very exciting. Thank you for speaking to me. Is there sort of a challenge that you want out there to the community when it comes to how, you know, not just academics can contribute to shaping manufacturing but how we all should think of these manufacturing challenges? Is it something that we should leave to experts right now because it's so complicated? Or are there ways that the broader interested public can get engaged in this problem? Is it possible to engage, and where should one engage? JOHN: That's a great question. First, to the general public, I'd say stop and think about what manufacturing means to you, or find one of your favorite things and look up how it's manufactured. Imagine the life, the journey of the product as it comes to your door. And second, I'd say the area where most of us can make an impact is in education and learning and contributing to our communities. Perhaps if you're an engineer working somewhere, you might want to teach at a community college one night a week if you have time in a future semester or explore ways that you can bring new knowledge, new technology to your organization if it makes sense. TROND: Exciting challenges. Thank you so much for sharing a little bit of what you're up to with us, John. JOHN: Thank you, Trond. TROND: You have just listened to another episode of the Augmented Podcast with host Trond Arne Undheim. The topic was How Academia Shapes Manufacturing. Our guest was John Hart, Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Director at the Center for Advanced Production Technologies at MIT. In this conversation, we talk about John's research on micro and nanotechnology and material science, which universities and colleges that teach manufacturing, the role of MIT in this ecosystem, and why now is a key moment in manufacturing history. My takeaway is that there has never been a more interesting time to be in manufacturing or to watch manufacturing. The tremendous breakthroughs that we are about to witness have been made possible by a confluence of emerging technologies and startup innovations, as well as a growing awareness of the importance of building human-centric technologies. We are indeed at a crossroads with profound challenges in the growing talent shortage, the need for workforce training, an aging industrial base, and the demands for manufacturing competency from the wider innovation ecosystem. We have to make progress fast, and innovations are just maturing to be able to do so at the scale and pace required. It will, again, be amazing to watch the manufacturing industry. Parts of it will perhaps, again, become the industry of industries. Thanks for listening.

The deranged old pedophile that America calls their President is not the one in charge of the country these days, that much is obvious even to the most indoctrinated morons that support his administration. The decisions that are being made are happening behind the scenes by people that do not answer to the general public and were not elected to their positions. There is a group behind the scenes that seems to want the same thing as the Biden Administration, and we aren't talking about rainbow dildos for kids. The Trilateral Commission has been working tirelessly on eroding national sovereignty for over half a century and they have made tremendous progress in just the last two years with the selection of the Biden Puppet to sit in the fake Oval Office. Senior policymakers, business leaders, media mouthpieces, and academia indoctrinators are chosen to guide the Trilateral Commission to their eventual goal of removal of nations to be replaced by a one-world government that they control through the banking and governmental establishments. With as crazy as things have gotten, it might be tempting to assume that Joe Biden and his administration have been failures at their job as evidenced by the disaster of the economy, multiple wars breaking out, and the massive border crisis, but the truth is that he has been fantastic at his job.

Perhaps you remember Sen. Barry Goldwater, the GOP's fringy, far-right-wing 1964 presidential nominee who famously said, “Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.” Today, however, the core of the Republicans Party has gone so far beyond the fringe that they would boo Goldwater's right-wingism as insufficiently rabid. Instead, their new rallying cry is: “Nuttiness in the defense of extremism is no vice.” The GOP's mainline officialdom now proclaim themselves The Party of Extremism. They are openly embracing The Crazy, including conspiracy theorists, neo-confederates, and Q-Anon cultists, hoping to harness the fanatical horsepower of these antidemocratic groups to the party's true purpose of entrenching the supremacy of corporate and moneyed elites. Now, this extremism is about to erupt in the GOP's presidential primary, for a whole covey of these cooing right-wingers have fantasies of taking the groups' radical agenda to the White House. All of them are trying to out-extreme each other with raw meat bigotry and autocratic posturing, but two wannabes have emerged as both the most bullish and bullying: Greg Abbott of Texas and Ron DeSantis of Florida. For months, these big state governors have been locked in a far-right kook-off including outlawing free speech, banning books, viciously attacking immigrants, preempting local elections and governments, and denying health care to poor people. Bear in mind that Abbott and DeSantis are not merely pontificating, posturing, and promising what they might do in the White House–as governors they're actually practicing it right now! I don't know if Abbott and DeSantis are the worst that the GOP will try to put in the Oval Office in 2024, but please pay attention now, for today's Republican elites intend to pull our democracy down into the plutocratic, autocratic, and theocratic maelstrom they are creating.

Prayer - Access to The Decider - #9325

A Word With You

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 7, 2022


It's probably one of the most famous offices in the world - the Oval Office of the President of the United States. Every four years, two people fight it out with the voters to be the one who gets to occupy that room from which a lot of world-changing decisions are made. And with the President comes a supporting cast, of course. There's the Chief of Staff, a Political Director, a National Security Advisor, and so many more. You know. The greatest perk at the White House has little to do with how nice an office you have or even how much money you make. It's all about your proximity to the President's office and, more importantly, what kind of access you have to him there. Some of the President's staff see him barely at all; others see him occasionally. But there are trusted few who are in and out of the Oval Office several times a day. Given the weight of what goes on in that room, those are some of the most privileged and powerful people in this land. I'm Ron Hutchcraft and I want to have A Word With You today about "Prayer - Access to The Decider." Power has to do with who has regular access to the place where things are decided; to the person who makes the decision. If you belong to Jesus Christ, my friend, you have that access, you have that power to enter at any time of the day or night the place where everything on earth is decided - the Throne Room of Almighty God. In fact, Scripture invites us to "approach the throne of grace with confidence" (Hebrews 4:16). It tells us "we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus" (Hebrews 10:19). At any given moment in your life, I know you're facing some things that are beyond your ability to figure out, or to fix, or to change. It can be something medical, or financial, or emotional, or marital; a situation or a person you can't change; maybe it's a mountain you can't move, a challenge you can't meet. Where will the outcome be decided? Who will decide it? Will that medical condition decide it, or your boss, or your company, the economy, the people who are against you, some human authority or some human factor? No! For you as a child of God, it will be decided in the Throne Room of the One who rules billions of galaxies and who is your Father! Which means your primary method of getting anything done must be big-time praying! The Bible is filled with examples of the decisive difference that desperate and dependent prayer makes. In our word for today from the Word of God in Isaiah 37, King Hezekiah is facing an ultimatum from the Assyrian army. That army has rolled like a juggernaut across the Middle East, crushing every king and kingdom in its path. Their leader demands Hezekiah's surrender with a message like this: "Has the god of any nation ever delivered his land from the hand of the king of Assyria?" (Isaiah 36:18). The answer was "no." According to Isaiah 37:14, here's what King Hezekiah did with that surrender demand. "He went up to the temple of the Lord and spread it out before the Lord. And Hezekiah prayed to the Lord: 'O Lord Almighty�enthroned between the cherubim, You alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth.'" And he went on to plead with God for deliverance. And the angel of the Lord came and slew 185,000 Assyrians that night. That divine throne room where the outcome of Hezekiah's battle was decided? It's the same place your battle will be decided. The powerless P's won't get it done: pushing, persuading, personalities, planning, promoting. Life's battles are won by prayer, not on the battlefield itself, but in the Throne Room of the God who governs the galaxies - who is, because of what Jesus did, your spiritual Daddy! And you have access, day or night, to the place where it's all decided and to the person who decides it. Go there often, go there in awe, go there clean, and go there expecting something so big, only God could do it!

How did the deeply flawed George W. Bush ascend to the highest office in the nation, what forces abetted his rise, and-perhaps most important-have those forces really been vanquished by Obama's election? Award-winning investigative journalist Russ Baker gives us the answers in Family of Secrets, a compelling and startling new take on the Bush dynasty and the shadowy elite that has quietly steered the American republic for the past half century and more. Baker shows how this network of figures in intelligence, the military, oil, and finance enabled-and in turn benefited handsomely from-the Bushes' perch at the highest levels of government. As Baker reveals, this deeply entrenched elite remains in power regardless of who sits in the Oval Office. Family of Secrets offers countless disclosures that challenge the conventional accounts of such central events as the JFK assassination and Watergate. It includes an inside account of George W.'s cynical religious conversion and the untold real background to the disastrous response to Hurricane Katrina. Baker's narrative is gripping, sobering, and deeply sourced. It will change the way we understand not just the Bush years, but a half century of postwar history-and the present

New York Times chief White House correspondent and New Yorker staff writer Susan Glasser join Heilemann for a discussion of their new book The Divider: Trump in The White 2017-2021, which aims to be the first soup-to-nuts account of the 45th president's tenure in the Oval Office. Baker and Glasser — both long-time, much-admired Washington reporters, spouses, and co-authors of previous books on Vladimir Putin's Russia and the life of James A. Baker III — discuss their thesis that Trump is the sole POTUS in history who never saw national unity as a goal, and in fact sought to profit politically from dividing the country; how Trump's 2017 inaugural address, with its invocation of "American carnage," augured the darkness (and strangeness) that would follow; Trump's disregard and disdain for democratic and institutional norms, from his politicization of the Justice Department and efforts to co-opt the military to his attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election; how his foreign policy came closer than anyone knew to leading to armed (even nuclear) conflict and diplomatic chaos (including a U.S. exit from NATO) abroad; the transactional nature of Trump's relationship with his wife, Melania; and the mind-bending experience of interviewing Trump for the book and finding his mental stability as questionable as many of his top advisers did. They also assess the various investigations currently encircling Trump, along with the very real prospect that he could run for president in 2024 while under federal indictment ... and win.

Do you remember when Catholic bishops and priests were leading the charge in the culture war against ‘sex, drugs, and rock ‘n' roll' last century? What happened? To paraphrase another hippy crooner, Pete Seeger, “where have all the Catholics gone?” Last week, Bishop Robert Barron proudly announced on Facebook that he'd made a pilgrimage to the boyhood home of iconic folk rocker, Bob Dylan.Apart from offering further proof that the Catholic Church has surrendered in the Culture War, what's the takeaway? To answer that question, Michael Matt points to President Joe ‘The Catholic' Biden's recent Philadelphia speech in which he declared war on pro-life, pro-family, pro-God Americans. Now, let's not forget that Biden is just the second “Catholic” to occupy the Oval Office. And while he was denouncing American patriots, his counterpart over in Rome was denouncing Traditional Catholics. Both President and Pope accuse their own of the crime/sin of “backwardism.”What's going on here?Michael lays the Sexual Revolution of the 1960s down alongside the Modernist Revolution of Vatican II, and asks the question: What's the connection? The answer? The Catholic Church's unconditional surrender to the world, both doctrinally and culturally.Is all hope lost? Not on your life! The ageing ‘Catholic' hippies have jumped the shark, and there's a worldwide awakening going on. Michael points out several powerful Catholics standing up to the apostate Catholic cabal. Guys like Ron DeSantis, Archbishop Vigano, Matt Walsh, Michael Knowles, and several million Traditional Catholics worldwide who've had enough of the hippies, Marxists, and socialists running around loose, pretending to the Catholic.Whether your Catholic or not, it's time to stand up to the “Catholic” cabal headed up by Biden, Bergoglio, Pelosi, Newsom, Fauci, AOC, and the rest of them.Listen to Michael Matt's podcasts:SPOTIFY: https://open.spotify.com/show/1AdkCDFfR736CqcGw2Uvd0APPLE: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-michael-j-matt-show/id1563298989GOOGLE: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9yZW1uYW50LXR2LmNvbS9mZWVkLz9jY XROYW1lPXRoZS1taWNoYWVsLWotbWF0dC1zaG9If you'd like to contribute to RTV's expansion, please consider a donation: https://remnantnewspaper.com/web/index.php/donate-todayStay Connected to RTV:Subscribe to The Remnant Newspaper, print and/or digital versions available: https://remnantnewspaper.com/web/index.php/subscribe-todaySubscribe to Remnant TV's independent platform: https://remnant-tv.com/user
