Forbes’ pre­dic­tions for tech­nol­ogy strat­egy in 2015 aren’t so out of the box for what they’re fore­see­ing, and are sort of pre­dict­ing them­selves. They project com­put­ing will be every­where and it all rides on the user’s expe­ri­ence. Isn’t that really what it’s been rid­ing on all along? The trend of com­put­ing being every­where, well, that’s not a sur­prise is it? I pre­dicted that in 2012.

The Inter­net of Things (IoT), what does that even mean? Basi­cally, if some­thing has an on off switch then it can be an IoT. It’s some­thing that can be con­trolled via the Inter­net. Think of cable tele­vi­sion or satel­lite TV. You can log into your account and set a TV show to be recorded and lit­er­ally be thou­sands of miles away from your tele­vi­sion. How about start­ing your car via the Inter­net? Or, turn­ing on home secu­rity and lock­ing the doors? Viola, IoT is born.

I like Forbes’ idea that 3D print­ing is on the verge of get­ting cheaper. Cheaper is always a good thing when it takes less money out of a pocket and it doesn’t mean some­thing is “cheap”. Forbes pre­dicts this trend will have the biggest affect on the pock­ets of con­sumer appli­ca­tions, bio­med­ical indus­try and indus­trial sec­tors. Hope­fully, more money in their pock­ets will trickle to more money in the public’s pock­ets. Read it all…

Chil­dren learn by imag­in­ing and doing. The process of pre­tend­ing builds skills in many essen­tial devel­op­men­tal areas. Dress-up play is vital to a child’s devel­op­ment. Accord­ing to licensed child psy­chol­o­gist Dr. Lau­rie Zelinger, “It fos­ters the imag­i­na­tive processes, and allows for play with­out rules or script. Dress up allows for exper­i­men­ta­tion, role play and fantasy.“

When I was a kid I loved so many sports. I loved play­ing rough and being com­pet­i­tive. My favorite was soft­ball; I played 1st base for a league in Lyons, Ga. and on New­nan, Ga.‘s First Bap­tist Church’s team. I loved it! They called me stretch cause at 4′ 11″ I would extend myself like those tall girls! Ha! I was going to catch that ball and my foot was NOT leav­ing that bag! The young girl in this pic­ture reminds me of my days of hang­ing in a bull pin.

When I had kids they caught my love bug of sports. My son more than my daugh­ter though. Stephanie dab­bled in Lacrosse, and Josh pitched in Lit­tle League and even got scouted. My boy had one heck of an arm! I was so proud of him! Unfor­tu­nately girls entered the pic­ture and he lost inter­est. Now that he’s mar­ried how­ever, he’s on a soft­ball team and lov­ing it again. Noth­ing like being a part of a team and feel­ing that strong team spirit and the bond that comes with it. So much learned from such a great expe­ri­ence. Dis­ci­pline, struc­ture, expec­ta­tions, punc­tu­al­ity, reli­a­bil­ity, hard work pays off, if you want to be good at some­thing it takes prac­tice, and so many more valu­able lessons to use in life. Yep! There’s more!
