Year: 2014

 

What is a grumbler actually worth?

Most people these days grumble about their financial situation – unless you happen to be Bill Gates or Richard Branson – but they aren’t most people. From 2006 to now, I’ve found that when I get down to making suggestions to people who definitely communicate a need to improve earningRead More

The future is in Thorium

Thorium is a fairly common metal that can be used far more safely than Uranium to generate nuclear power. The ability of Thorium to become a ‘cleaner’ and more safely manageable nuclear material was known back in December 1945!! Yes – so why are you now hearing about this? AndRead More

The Captains Calendar gift 2015

The Captain’s simple gift to all is the calendar below. This is downloadable and printable. It’s a simple thing but so useful. I’ve got one in most rooms, even though I have a calendars on my phone and computer. Sometimes you just need to see the whole year on aRead More

To be or not to be..

I never read English Literature in my early days. That’s sad. It was a choice between ‘Sciences’ and ‘Literature’ –  a very sad bifurcation over which I had no control. However, now in these later years I can appreciate what I missed.   “To be, or not to be: thatRead More

The Futures game: exploiting the gap.

My venture into ‘derivatives’ – that evil thing associated with some ‘criminal’ bloke’- has led me to think a lot more about how we assess the future. By way of introduction, futures contracts – in the simplest form – are meant to agree  prices for various things in the futureRead More

Nano.. Nano!!

I’ve been thinking about my use of the words ‘the humans’. It seems to suggest that I’m an observer of them – and not connected to their kind. For sure I do feel that way a lot of the time. But looking back as to how I came to stepRead More

Dislike of intensity

I’ve been thinking again – as I do – over the last few days, about another phenomenon amongst the humans. I will reference this back to myself because I draw on my experience of how people interact with me. But what is this ‘intensity’ to which I refer? I alwaysRead More

Chess – how I became good at it.

I was thinking about when I was much younger in my early to mid-teens, when I used to play Chess. It was a most intriguing game for a number of reasons that I don’t intend to go into. I became quite good at it and made at least one NationalRead More
