High Interest Releases
Certain older press releases from my first year in this three-year series were growing outside of my knowledge of the 50 most current press releases. Some of the older 90 attracted much more interest than others did, in this hidden after market. Here are ten of those oldies but goodies that attracted much more interest after the initial modest exposure. I start with a surprise big hit this year on my wordpress.com account: “10 Scientific Revolution Facts” suddenly took on new interest after my Nobel Peace Prize nomination in January 2016, outpacing all others by a factor of five this year.
10 Scientific Revolution Facts, 12-21-14
This book review of Thomas Kuhn’s famous book highlights the key points I’ve personally found to be true in my work. There are few paradigms in social science research and acceptance comes slowly and with much difficulty. The world views of social scientists and engineers are very different. When an engineer comes into the field with a revolutionary new perspective, that is empirically precise, it is hard to accept that work as cornerstone work it truly is.
SF Earthquake Predicted, 8-26-14
The Richter 7.0 earthquake in the San Francisco area 8-24-14 came a perfect cycle 108 years after the devastating 1906 earthquake, but fortunately much weaker. Other predictions are also cited.
Politician in Eugene Oregon, 5-14-14
I had many successes in party politics in the eighties, building a strong reputation in Eugene and the state of Oregon. My Madison Wisconsin experience since 1993 has been a disappointment compared to that situation. With the Doctorate in 2009 and the Nobel Peace Prize nomination in 2016 my reputation worldwide is growing stronger as some peer reviewed work is slowly being added to my extensive portfolio of 140 press releases.
Peace Econ: How I Did It, 6-21-14
The miracle of Peace Economics, this is the story of how it all happened thirty years ago, back in the eighties. Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.
Ukraine, Crimea, History, Context, 3-4-14
This paper challenges the mainstream wisdom in the United States about what is going on in Ukraine and why. NATO encroachment against Russia in violation of 1991 agreements is the under-reported story. Similar to the manifest destiny encroachment against Native Americans in America’s formative years. This is why some of us have problems with the American Exceptionalism doctrine including the role as world policeman. The CIA and blowback better explain many events.
10 Ways Heat Affects People, 9-8-14
This is a pithy version of the Climate Economics paper two papers after this one.
Why Were Murder and Crime Cut in Half in the Nineties? , 12-5-13
The findings I reported in Strength Through Peace in 1989 show that military spending levels clearly define murder and crime levels internationally. They also show up in regional comparisons of the 28 Northern States compared to 22 Southern States of the United States of America. Criminologists are at a loss to explain the drop in crime in the nineties, but my work clearly shows that to be related to the reduction in military spending after the Cold War ended.
Climate Economics: Much More than Costs & Disasters, 12-3-13
Temperature has a direct effect on the productivity of humans. This is proven three ways, from industrial engineering studies, to the prosperity of the temperate zone countries compared to the tropical countries, to the ups and downs of one five year period to the next in a 95 study of American history. Cooling is prosperous, heating diminishes prosperity, common to all three cases.
Egypt-Britain Climate Change, 1-24-14
This builds on the timeline and temperatures cited in Australian social journalist James Burke’s Maryland PBS two hour global warming documentary. I’ve added my own “color commentary” of the rise and fall of civilizations in the last 3000 years. It is apparent that the great civilization events in Europe are strongly driven by the ups and downs of climate change over the centuries, from Egypt to Rome to the Middle Ages, Vikings, Spanish and Portuguese explorations, and finally the Industrial Revolution in Britain. As the ideal temperature zone moves North or South, the corresponding civilizations emerge or decline through time.
Peace Economics or Peace Studies? , 1-9-14
This posting lead to great interest among the academics of the Peace and Justice Studies Association. The eight categories I chose to define my work in my dissertation are each compared to traditionally peace studies approaches, and a chart is the last page of the twelve page academia.edu paper. I believe the precision of my science creates a basic backdrop to understanding the times we live in. Empire, empirically defined by the level of military spending, shapes sociology and history, politics and economics.
Here are all ten releases in a twelve page pdf:
