This weekend was informative and confirming on several levels: the church is compromised in a way that needs immediate attention to bring home valued American Christian leaders to the American church from across the globe. Scriptural order of evangelism is home first and then to the globe; America has leaders that need to regroup especially in a time of change with a bold United States of America President. The church, especially the American church, has transformed impoverished nations into functioning developing nations along side many other non profit organizations, but if the church doesn’t protect it’s home especially with a recession looming it will take losses to many people because of hurt and division. It was an honor to hear from a brave man named Francis Chan and I wish him a season of rest to provide clarity to his leadership.
At a Christian conference and starting the discussion of meaning and value of communication with different culture and religion. What value do words have without the consequent actions of life? “Faith without action is dead.”
America is a place of tradition, as with many nations. Recently perusing a book on American design through history, primarily focused on the American childhood toy it brought light to the traditions that form a conservative and healthy nation. Live in rural Kentucky or even in New York would not revolve around the latest drone technology but a few carefully crafted pieces of design would be a treasure to families raising children. The rocking horse chair is the primary example of that. Current day industrial design is as disposable as a Red Solo Cup but companies like Apple have produced valuable objects that define contemporant life.
Recently, I found a map of Disneyland in a formal ivy league Architectural Journal from 1967. As a place, it is a very safe and welcoming place that has provided a standard of care for defensible space: world class. Urbanistically, it has drained the surrounding area for many years of vitality – nearly every urban space around that center is lacking in quality as a direct result of the amusement park. Right or wrong, it has formalized the urban development of the county and kept Orange County more conservative in lifestyle because of that standard for defensible space in the middle class/wealthy neighborhoods. As the future is requiring more efficient use of land to maintain infrastructure the populous is going to be exposed to more and more urban centers that are less defensible for the youth and youth-minded of America. Healthy urban like Los Angeles has great neighborhood main streets and an abundance of sunshine; Los Angeles has a significant population of impoverished groups that live vibrant lives and outlets for people to live in pursuit of their dream – while making an opulent life achievable only in derivation. Portland has the advantage of a nearly homogeneous population to create healthy urban environments but the lack of population in the urban metropolis puts too much pressure on developers to keep professionals and college graduates renting – which limits development. As suburban America gently pushes away from the conservative buffers Urban Planning needs to provide safe development that can provide healthy societal structures for developing minds. The area around Disneyland is under redevelopment and urbanism is refining those edges – a suburban community that doesn’t really need to change much. My hats off to the Ranch Saloon for some high class country fare and good dance saloon.
Back in the day, not half a century ago, but the millennial back in the day: 1998. Bands like Squad Five-O promoted images of post-Anarchistic poppy punk, 2001 came along and banned some of their artwork, and now music has developed to a much more formal language, but their music portrays a spirit of livelihood that defined culture in the music industry. Somehow, fuzz synth isn’t as cool as the groovetube 12ax7.
Clarity is one of the most useful tools with knowledge. The digital age has provided lots of resource to find knowledge yet often times it produces a world that loses meaning and value rather quickly in information presented as knowledge. As I process through thought presented in literature and place value on the clarity of the perspective and verity of the mind that produced that piece, it is important to stop and have a clarity in opinion on the order of Truth. Thankfully, reading the Bible daily for many years established a level of synthesis of Maseretic text and Greek translations, which helps in establishing means for analysis. The digital age will hopefully continue to clarify thought on complex meanings like that of life, existence and the preservation of innocence.
The ear, a finely tuned instrument that regenerates with the balance of tiny hairlike sensing matter. With the increase in electromagnetic forces like low level radiation exposure, society might experience a decay in the level of sound experience. As posted previously, requiem lost. Society will need to protect the instruments of life or face a dull depressed and impoverished future.
Dear Google, I had one of my first bikes stolen from a school when I was little, I hope you resolve your bike theft issue soon.
As a published design professional, trademark holder of theDailyTrotter® and blog author currently researching to become an author for a published article/book titled “Formation of meaning and space in a contemporary context”, there are many considerations about intent and consequential thought. My classical training and time in Scandinavia revealed a number of orders and symbolism that go beyond literature and the tradition of design to the emotion and expression of space. Architectural thought has produced many movements that are consistent with their contemporary- and emergent design continues to form that body of thought. Contemporant culture is something that is poorly matched with the value of the church; the threshold and mean of a body of belief needs to hold boundaries to define meaning. When the form emerges it produces a lovely culture yet it can conflict with the goal of eternity because tradition holds the strongest values that maintain the values of belief. With that said, sometimes form is just a cool expression.
As the demand for telecommunications grows providers will likely be pursuing new frequencies and expanding the existing. Telecommutation frequencies can effect brain activity, how will the United States deal with regulating new and existing frequencies to protect the good mind in the future and present? The developed world won’t be that great of a place if people’s minds shrink to the size of euthanized criminals or neanderthals.
