Rode my Schwinn Voyageur touring bicycle with ZAP electric motor with battery up Market Street in San Francisco through much of the 1990s, but the battery never had quite enough power to make it comfortably to the top, below Twin Peaks. My bike was a little like this one but had different fenders and back and front racks for panniers:




... and the ZAP motor and battery were like this, on the above bicycle:

In what ways could we add this ZAP system into a Copenhagen wheel-like design, and for carrying a fully loaded bicycle with trailer, like the Burley one above, when battery life improves (and gets much lighter too), so that we could effortlessly bicycle 300 miles in a day?

Was riding only bicycles, and not traveling in cars for around 22 or 23 years, for example, out of a kind of Quaker witness re Global Warming, and as a form of conscientious objection.

African flower mantis: Romania WUaS A) @WorldUnivAndSch B) @WUaSPress, Online culture at WUaS? - ie. to become world class - I think one of former chair of Stanford CS Nils Nilsson's points is that Stanford CS ADAPTED to what students wanted/what kept their interest, whereas MIT, for example, might not have (see his transcribed text in my blog post), It's a kind of excellence, smart empathy and connecting academically


Hi Julian, 

I just tried to post the following here -

+Scott MacLeod 3. I find it difficult to follow the text about Stanford on this blog page: https://scott-macleod.blogspot.ro/2017/11/garcinia-gummi-gutta-creating-world.html I think I see some room to improve your data management plan. Do you task me to help improve it?
4.1 I understand "accredited degrees" to be those awarded by accredited educators.
What does "ACCREDITING Bachelor degrees" mean?
4.2 You wrote: "planning to become an all-language academic online manpower-brain power-language-power jobs' source for our graduates and others"
Do you want to educate people so that they become well prepared to build the future economy? I've used these words to show that I want to understand your goal; you can phrase your goal as you please.
8.1 When you suggest grant writing, I understand this: you'd ask people from money and offer them hardly anything in exchange. What is a general grant agreement that you'd try to reach?
This is part of your financial plan. I would attempt to help you write it and execute it; have you made this plan already?
8.2 You wrote something like this: financial collaboration with governments for degrees
Do you want to have nations pay for your education services?

I might be able to discuss comprehensively more of your revenue streams and to base a resource management plan on our discussion.

Hi Julian,

Thanks again for your engagement.

3. In World Univ & Sch seeking to develop a Stanford online culture at WUaS - ie. to become world class - I think one of Nils Nilsson's points is that Stanford CS ADAPTED to what students wanted/what kept their interest, whereas MIT, for example, might not have (see his transcribed text in my blog post). It's a kind of excellence, smart empathy and connecting (perhaps California-informed too) re academics, that informs this ethos. And Stanford CS, coming through Stanford's 1960s' freedoms and civil rights & Vietnam War protests (with social justice in mind), has been in a position to hire the best (ie they've prospered and grown). Stanford CS also has had a very close relationship with Google since its inception in 1996, and Google's successes across it platforms may be attributable to the "algorithmic effect" (think Stanford CS Prof Don Knuth - also in the Stanford Historical Society video -

Creating World Class Computer Science at Stanford


https://youtu.be/eDs4mRPJonU - with Nils) - and which will develop, for example, with Google Translate/GNMT, and now with Tensor Flow. And WUaS has Google Education for free.

4.1 Here are Stanford and UC Berkeley examples of accreditation that WUaS is seeking https://wasc.stanford.edu/ & https://www.wscuc.org/institutions/university-california-berkeley & https://wasc.stanford.edu/student-achievement/overview. WUaS seeks to accredit with WASC senior for free CC-4 OCW Bachelor's degrees, beginning with our second undergraduate class this autumn.

4.2 Yes, our WUaS degrees will have a STEM focus, based on the CC-4 MIT OCW - and therefore, paralleling MIT and Stanford, re our WUaS graduates "...that they become well prepared to build the future economy."

8.1 Grant writing for education in the US involves picking specific grant opportunities, with specific goals, and writing the grant proposal to this. I would imagine the process is similar in Romania and the EU. Can you identify some specific grants there?

Here is language from one specific National Science Foundation grant that WUaS is writing, if this helps:

"A well-prepared, innovative science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce is crucial to the Nation's prosperity and security. Future generations of STEM professionals are a key sector of this workforce, especially in the critical scientific areas described in the Big Ideas for Future NSF Investments. To accelerate progress in these areas, the next generation of STEM professionals will need to master new knowledge and skills, collaborate across disciplines, and shape the future of the human-technology interface in the workplace. As a result, NSF recognizes the need to support development of and research on effective educational approaches that can position the future STEM workforce to make bold advances in these Big Ideas. In response to this need, the NSF’s Education and Human Resources Directorate seeks to invest in projects that can educate the STEM workforce to advance discovery in the six research Big Ideas: Harnessing the Data Revolution; The Future of Work; Navigating the New Arctic; Multi-messenger Astrophysics; The Quantum Leap; and Understanding the Rules of Life. In addition to developing and implementing novel educational and/or training programs, these projects should simultaneously generate new knowledge about effective STEM education, by studying such programs and exploring related issues. Specifically, NSF accepts proposals to support education research and development projects focused on re- or up-skilling the existing workforce; developing the skilled technical workforce; and/or preparing those at the undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral fellow/early career levels. We encourage projects to partner with industry, public, and private sectors to define the needs of tomorrow’s workforce and develop educational and learning strategies to meet those needs. Proposals should address near-, mid-, and long-term challenges and opportunities facing the development of STEM professionals or anticipate new structures and functions of the STEM learning and teaching enterprise. Proposers are encouraged to include approaches that have the potential to increase and diversify participation in STEM. All proposals should contribute to one or more of the six research Big Ideas. EHR is particularly interested in supporting innovative education research and development in two Big Ideas: The Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier (FW-HTF) and Harnessing the Data Revolution for 21st Century Science and Engineering (HDR). Projects of interest include: innovative uses of technology and big data to understand learning; educational approaches that prepare tomorrow’s innovators to use technology and big data to understand the natural world; effects of advances in intelligent agents on STEM teaching and learning; and evaluation of disruptive educational interventions on long-term student outcomes. Outcomes of these projects can enable the Nation to: better prepare its scientific and technical workforce for the future; use technological innovations effectively for education; and advance the frontiers of science. Proposals should describe projects that build on available evidence and theory, and that will generate evidence and build knowledge, while contributing to the education of the future STEM professionals."

8.2 Please remember that while CC-4 MIT OpenCourseWare is licensed for a) sharing b) adapting but c) non-commercially, that WUaS can, in communication with MIT Dean of Online Learning, Cecilia d'Oliveira, and plans to seek reimbursement from all ~200 countries' nation states - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Nation_States - for degrees (planned in their language). An undergraduate degree from Stanford  costs about US$ 200,000 for four years - https://financialaid.stanford.edu/undergrad/budget/index.html - by way of comparison.

Please remember too re data that WUaS is like Wikipedia in 301 languages with CC-4 MIT OpenCourseWare (in 5 languages), and that WUaS donated ourselves to Wikidata in 2015 as platform, and received as a consequence received our new wiki eg https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Academic_Press_at_World_University_and_School (& http://worlduniversityandschool.org/AcademicPress.html ) and re planned machine translation.

As you may gather, and as the named CEO of the WUaS Co the WUaS Press, Julian, and especially potentially profitable bookstore, is your nominal focus ... https://twitter.com/WUaSPress (see planned revenue streams too) . And WUaS is planning this database of books for our bookstore to emerge out Wikdata's 301 languages, hopefully and potentially with CC-0 licensing - so the books based on this database in 301 could be sold commercially both online and on the ground. And Stanford books and supplies per year are estimated at US$ 1455 (x 4 over 4 years is about $6000).

As named startup CEO of the WUaS Corp, please give some thought to developing the bookstore and academic press out of Wikidata / Google Translate. And as the potential President in the future of Romania World University and School planned in Romanian, please give some thought to grant writing for this, as well as planning for translating CC-4 MIT OpenCourseWare into Romanian. Romanian students would get MIT for free in Romanian in a sense.

I hope to hold a WUaS Hangout on Air today at 10 am Pacific Time, which should be 8pm or 20:00 in Romania / Transylvania - http://www.thetimezoneconverter.com/ - if you'd like to talk further. Branding World University and School - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/ - with the MIT OCW Creative Commons' licensing and endorsement clarifications here, will be part of this process - and in Romania and Europe.

Admitting online for psychoanalysis, at emergent online teaching psychoanalytic schools affiliated with online teaching hospitals for clinical care, and in multiple languages and countries, would create novel clinical situations potentially leading to new forms of theorizing - and possibilities for data. Am curious about a kind of psychoanalytic theoretical focus that would focus on psychotherapeutic communication as "information technology" exchange (very novel indeed, but allowing eventually for developing avatar bots in these regards ... eg MIT Media Lab's focus on affective computing and personal robotics, etc. ) ... Online psychoanalysis / psychotherapy in group video conferencing would allow for "other forms of communication, especially involving emotion" ... but words as signifiers, for me, seem to be able to convey "information technology" that can affect emotions remarkably, and lives, hence my interest in Lacan's focus on languages / parole-speech (am thinking here too of a Lacanian psychoanalyst MD family friend, now deceased) ... Appreciating your great knowledge, experience, and speaking from this, Chris. Have you had much/any experience as analyst with a 3-5 year 4-5 day a week analysis with an analysand ONLINE - and affiliated with a medical school even - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/World_University_Medical_School (planned in multiple languages, and if fortunate, in conjunction possibly with Leland Stanford's Palo Alto gem of a Univ.) - for example? Am interested re World University and School's planned online medical schools with online teaching hospitals for online clinical care. (Think Project ECHO - specialists to rural populations in group video with a mentoring/school aspect, and potentially with Google's Project Baseline into an online hospital in a realistic virtual earth - think Google Street View with time slider with Second Life / OpenSim avatar bots )? Creative and innovative explorations here. Thank you.

Thanks, Dr. Chris Heath ... curious how these "Hippy Anjali Yoga Notatioins" - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2017/08/hippy-anjali-yoga-notations-ntf-talk.html - with a slight Lacanian psychoanalytic influence would dovetail with your thinking and practice (given your long hair, for ex.), and especially re multiple languages. (World University and School seeks to create online psychoanalytic schools in each of all ~200 countries' official languages - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/05/flax-seed-flowers-glad-to-be-developing.html). Friendly cheers, Scott

Hi Scott MacLeod, and thank you. The Hippy Anjali Yoga videos are very engaging! They center our window into the unconscious in/thru the body. The practice is different than psychoanalysis, but the goal and philosophy are, I think, the same. Great find, thank you for steering me that way, and your hard work on the blogspot.

- Chris Heath MD

Hi Dr. Chris Heath MD, - thank you too. The Hippy Anjali Yoga Notations kind of rif with Patanjali's Yoga Sutras (also a system of healing / health), but with a focus on innovative Angela and Victor's Yoga (and related videos) - and their body focus. Am curious about Lacanian psychoanalysis with its focus on language / speech / the signifier re the unconscious ... where the "Unconscious is structured like a Language" ... and even creating online Lacanian psychoanalytic schools in all ~200 countries' official / main languages ... https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Psychoanalysis ... at CC-4 MIT OCW-centric World University and School ... and appreciating too what comes after Lacan ie re John Money and so many others re psychoanalysis ... search on John Money here, for example - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/search/label/Jacques%20Lacan%20MD ... What's your thinking about Lacan / languages as a very experienced MD psychoanalyst? Thank you.

I have to admit, I have a hard time taking the Lacanian structure in. It is widely studied, and Lacanian psychoanalysts, IMO, are the clearest theorists of any when they speak. They are very well equipped to, in the moment, put novel clinical situations into theoretic perspective. I think what is difficult for me in the Lacanian school is their use of words as signifiers. In clinical work, I think often, for me, the words matter much less than other forms of communication, especially involving emotion. So I find myself drawn to the Argentinian and Italian focus on the frame, especially Baranger's work on Process and Non-Process. Also the French and British work on the Body, especially Dedier Anzieu and Esther Bick on the psychical skin/Second Skin. Somehow I can get all that, but not Lacanian descriptions; I think it is somehow a blind spot for me...

Have you had much/any experience as analyst with a 3-5 year 4-5 day a week analysis with an analysand ONLINE - and affiliated with a medical school even - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/World_University_Medical_School (planned in multiple languages, and if fortunate, in conjunction possibly with Leland Stanford's Palo Alto gem of a Univ.) - for example? Am interested re World University and School's planned online medical schools with online teaching hospitals for online clinical care. (Think Project ECHO - specialists to rural populations in group video with a mentoring/school aspect, and potentially with Google's Project Baseline into an online hospital in a realistic virtual earth - think Google Street View with time slider with Second Life / OpenSim avatar bots )? Creative and innovative explorations here. Thank you.

Chris, interesting body-related psychoanalytic writing by Jennifer van der Grinten here ...
"THE PSYCHOLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE SKIN FROM FREUD TO TODAY" - https://www.academia.edu/19729015/The_Psychological_Significance_of_the_Skin_from_Freud_to_Today ... and I blogged a bit about all of this here ... https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/05/bluebonnet-plant-head-in-direction-of.html ... Am appreciating your articulateness and focus on emotions re Lacan's 'parole'/speech & language focus ... words as signifiers of the unconscious such as emotions can be communicated with, n'est-ce pas ? A realistic virtual Harbin Hot Springs and for related studies could open up interesting possibilities for understanding language re the body, and re Lacan's focus on desire as well - in addition to your focus on the body, it seems.  Thank you, Dr. Heath!

"Psychocutaneous Medicine". Very interesting, I'll take a closer look. Thank you for the reference.

Hi Tony,

Sent the email below to you and Roland a week or two ago, not having your email address (which I just found in L.I.). ...

Hi Tony, and Roland,

Thanks for your edifying Stanford Law CodeX conference yesterday - https://law.stanford.edu/event/oid/.

Tony, and Roland, here's the fascinating Harvard BKC talk from Tuesday, (which should become available again potentially in 2 weeks) -

governance and regulation in the land of crypto-securities (as told by cryptokitties)
featuring founding members, dieter shirley and alex shih
- https://cyber.harvard.edu/events/2018/luncheon/05/CryptoKitties
(some ideas about this here - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/05/hippeastrum-visiting-reed-college-in.html).

Best,
Scott

Have you by chance seen these great blockchain talks?


And great to see you at the Stanford Asia "1st Annual US-ATMC Industrial Affiliate Program Conference - Panel on Blockchain" - http://events.stanford.edu/events/778/77803/.

Let's stay in touch about a pan-Asian cryptocurrency (think Euro) with blockchain ledger into a potential universal cryptocurrency with blockchain backed by ~200 nation states' central banks, and relating to the IoT, and even for all 7.5 billion people e.g. https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/05/prunus-mume-stanford-asia.html (and for health care data too - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/03/aptenia-cordifolia-great-ibm-cognitive.html) ...


perhaps taught about in World University and School law schools.

And let's stay in touch in touch too about World University and School Law Schools themselves e.g. -

https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/World_University_Law_School ...

and e.g.

Law Schools at World University and School (planned in main languages in them)

Afghanistan Law School at WUaS: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Afghanistan_Law_School_at_WUaS

Brazil Law School at WUaS: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Brazil_Law_School_at_WUaS

China Law School at WUaS: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/China_Law_School_at_WUaS

Egypt Law School at WUaS: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Egypt_Law_School_at_WUaS

India Law School at WUaS: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/India_Law_School_at_WUaS

Jamaica Law School at WUaS: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Jamaica_Law_School_at_WUaS

Mexico Law School at WUaS: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Mexico_Law_School_at_WUaS

World University Law School: https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/World_University_Law_School


And let's stay in touch too about a realistic virtual earth at the Street View, cellular and atomic levels, where both blockchain chips (for microchip - semiconductor design), and agriculture with drones and flying cars could emerge, for example, among so so much more. I'm thinking here, conceptually, of Google Street View with TIME SLIDER / Maps / Earth / Brain / Tensor Flow / Translate +.

I was glad to learn that the Stanford Law China Guiding Cases Project was co-founded by you.


Looking forward to hearing and seeing you again soon - https://twitter.com/WorldUnivAndSch/status/997522444121325568.

Best, regards, Scott
