Driverless Vehicles – Challenges From Developing Countries

Quite a lot has been said about driverless vehicles, with the advantages seemingly overweighing the disadvantages.   Some of the advantages so much spoken about are that driverless vehicles will save lives, reduce accidents, enhance the free flow of traffic, contribute to a friendly environment and curb energy consumption.   A careful analysis actually shows that the advantages listed above, all border on how driverless vehicles have indirectly been affecting and impacting nature. It won’t be wrong to say therefore that there is a positive side of the driverless vehicles as regards nature.   Other good aspects of the driverless vehicles include lower insurance premiums, lower costs of transportation and available time – a precious and scarce resource, to engage in other activities.   To the major companies and research organizations that are involved in the project, the all-important question is; “To what extent are the developing countries factored into this project?”   Companies and individuals don’t just sink resources into projects for fun. They do so for business profits.   Since virtually all the developing countries depend on imported vehicles for their transportation industries, they need to be carried along on any new innovation in the industry. The potent question…

Nature Impacting Nature – The Role of Trees

When talking about nature, we have always been tempted to see humans and things that relate to humans. We most often relegate other forms of nature to the background or even completely neglect them.   When we do talk about them, we mostly talk about animals especially from the angle of ensuring that some endangered species do not go into extinction. Nature is more than all these. It is more about living things and nonliving things or phenomena predating human technology that surround them.   Only very few people remember that trees are nature and actually play important and vital roles that positively affect other forms of nature. The roles played by trees are central to the survival of every living thing.   The following are essential roles played by trees.   Windbreaker   On Sunday the 10th day of September 2017, Hurricane Irma pummelled the state of Florida in the United States. Though Miami did not sustain a direct hit from Hurricane Irma but did suffer some damage.   Irma was reported to be one of the strongest Atlantic hurricanes, of category 5 storm and with winds of 180 mph, ever experienced by man.   As the reports of…

Solar Energy – How to Overcome The Challenges

It is rather very obvious that virtually all activities carried out by humanity are energy dependent. For this reason, a concerted effort is being made by scientists and technologists to fashion out ways to generate energy on a regular basis.   Without energy, the world will be grounded. Every activity of man will come to a standstill. Complete blackout will envelop the world. The scenario should be better imagined because it will be absolutely catastrophic.   This is the reason why a lot of effort is geared toward the generation of energy with the consequent disastrous effects on our environment and nature bearing the brunt.   All the known means of generating energy employed in the world today, have both advantages and disadvantages. Some are, however, worse than the others in terms of the gravity of their side effects on the environment and the attendant disruption in nature’s equilibrium.   Some of the sources of energy available to the world include coal, natural gas, hydroelectric, solar, wind and nuclear. Solar energy falls into the group known as renewable energy sources. The sun and all other renewable energy sources provide only about 7 percent of the world’s energy needs.   Studies…

How You Can Transform Nature With Your Midas Touch

The biggest mistake you and I are probably making is looking at the world and then thinking, everything is in place, there is nothing I can contribute again. The guys who came before me have invented everything, how I wish I came into this world some years back, then I would have been a trailblazer.   Where we got this mindset is what completely knocks me out and you need to believe it, millions of people out there rationalize like this. The truth is that nature has given us so much and we need to give back to nature.   To give back to nature, you must first do an in-house check, where you ultimately repackage yourself to be able to come out with the best that will fit into the ecosystem.     I was able to do serious brainstorming and came up with 4 antidotes to this erroneous conception.   Pick a role model   A lot of people out there have done it, they decided to put in their Midas touch and they revolutionized the world. They did it, you can do it.   Bill Gates did not invent the computer, what he did was to put…
