I read an article recently about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and how six million children have been diagnosed with this condition and one million of those six million have also been classified as having Sluggish Cognitive Tempo or SCT (two million children).They report lethargy, day dreaming, and slow mental processing.

I ride a motorcycle and so am always interested in hearing about enhancing safety for that hobby. I was pleased to read an article recently about an inflatable jacket that deploys if there is an impact...like airbags in vehicles.

...you know, "feel-o-meter" for those of you who do not speak German.

Apparently, there are some creative artists in Lindau, Germany, that combined art and technology resulting in an interactive product. A monstrous-sized Smiley face is mounted on a lighthouse in the city that is constructed of fluorescent neon tubes and a bunch of steel pipe, and the thing displays a facial expression depending on the city dwellers' moods...huh?

Huh? Well, I was reading about a graduate student at the University of Oxford who recently explored this "effect" which allegedly can cause patients to become genuinely physically ill just by thinking that they are! The power of the grey matter between the ears is truly amazing. Folks can think themselves into manifesting bad health.

...you know, the urge to find meaning or patterns in numbers. Well, it is after all 11/11/11. What does it mean to you?

 I am not superstitious, nor do I get all caught up in what the configurations could mean, but it is kinda fun when these things come around to pontificate.
