We Should Have Already Had This: The Lithium-Ion Battery With Built-In Fire Suppression

On October 22, 2020, yesterday, Dexter Johnson posted The Lithium-Ion Battery With Built-In Fire Suppression. Within this topic, Dexter Johnson regards a Stanford University research team and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (its former name was the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center[1]). Johnson stated:Now [Yi] Cui and his research team, in collaboration with SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, have offered some exciting new capabilities for lithium-ion batteries based around a new polymer material they are using in the current collectors for them. The researchers claim this new design to current collectors increases efficiency in Li-ion batteries and reduces the risk of fires associated with these batteries.[2]Johnson was saying this: fires are a current Li-ion battery threat that has been realized, but a new design can secure client use-case safety, and this required this battery redesigned. As this technology approaches marketplace entry points, this shall confront Li-io…

On Self-Driving Vehicles, Re-evaluating Automation Levels

On October 18, 2020, Erik Stayton wrote "It’s Time to Rethink Levels of Automation for Self-Driving Vehicles" in the IEEE Society, SSIT (Society on Social Implications of Technology), and the magazine, Technology and Society. On media, regarding the future, Stayton agreed with Lee Vinsel. Regarding standards, Stayton wrote, “As the historian Lee Vinsel argues, standards are not just ways of classifying things. They are also attempts to shape the technological future. Thinking about how the structure of our standards contributes to their use is therefore crucial for making better policy decisions” (Stayton Sept 2020). Stayton was saying this: of the future, technology shall remain a part, but not its complete whole. Against humanity’s centralism is this: in authority, an ultimate media exchange. Without humans, media is another entity’s claimable target, but all human records are the bounty’s contents, too. As a history-based tool, its potency, replacing a human, is not reall…

On Patent Investing: Whether Industry or Academia, Invest

In the September to October 2020 edition of IEEE (Institute for Electricians and Electrical Engineers) Potentials, Raymond E. Floyd wrote Industry or academia. With the full article title being Industry or academia: Where are the innovators, Floyd explained two different words. Floyd wrote, “Innovation has two common definitions: 1) a new idea, device, or method 2) the act or process of introducing new ideas, devices or methods. In contrast, research is defined as the systematic investigation into and study of materials and sources to establish facts and reach new conclusions” (Floyd, September 2020). Floyd was saying this: for the most people, a supposed new idea or thing, or a supposed new idea’s or thing’s introduction is average innovation description, but research is a system-level investigation, and research might involve discovering or inventing new evidence-based results. To patent-producing research corporations, Floyd applied this knowledge. Floyd stated IBM (International B…

On Hacking the Axis and Securing History Records

On Security Requirements, Review Physical Might
On May 7, 2020, John Arquilla wrote the August, 2020 blog column, Hacking the Axis. When qualifying great acts, consider Arquilla’s statement and regard for the twenty first century anno domini second World War, acronymed WWII. Arquilla wrote, “Observations of the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe (May 8, 1945) included remembrances of such searing events as the struggle on Omaha Beach on D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge, and at least some recognition of the enormous contribution made by the Russian people to the defeat of Fascism” (Arquilla, 2020). Arquilla mentioned that the second World War’s European conclusion involved great physical struggles. Arquilla’s lesson learned began at the beginning of his column: in public security, physical might is important, and this is an utter security aspect.Emergent Cybersecurity RequirementsWith physical security, there is an emergent cybersecurity necessity that John Arquilla dis…

On the Topic of Domestic Graduate Students, I AM

Domestic Graduate Students
In the September 2020 edition of Communications of the ACM, Moshe Y. Vardi wrote Where Have All the Domestic Graduate Students Gone. Vardi wrote, “Tech industry giants Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and Google were all founded by first- or second-generation immigrants” (link). As stated previously in another article I wrote, Vardi wrote that in the month of June during the year 2020 AD, President Trump suspended new work visas and banned tens of ten thousands of foreigners against establishing employment within the U.S.A.: this was temporary. On greater division was the Trump Administration ban against U.S. universities that were operating using international students within only online classes, but remain in the U.S.A. Vardi also spoke on behalf of the entire science and engineering community without a vote and said that I strongly object to this, but I believe my objection is an average one. Against the international community becoming formally anti-U.S.A., nativ…
