Product design with by-products in mind
Iron, bronze, copper ,paper, glass, rubber, cork, silver, gold, platinum stainless steel, alluminum, plastic, silicon, styrofoam, portland, fiber glass, graphite, lead, clay, titanium, diamond, quartz, denim, cotton are going to replaced by Carbon nanotubes. We need to design a material with numerous properties, I suspect the material with the most properties will probably have the most functions and will ultimately be the most desired material. I anticipate a universal material for packaging goods. Something recyclable, durable, flexible, rigid, that seals, insulates ,sterilizes conductable, magnetic etc.. So that everybodies trash can contains one material instead of all the materials I mentioned earlier . The less diverse waste materials = more effecient recycling. I think eliminating the need to seperate the contents of our trash for recycling is key for recycling. Futhermore, I believe by making sure this universal material is compatible with 3 dimentional printers then recycling might become almost obsolete ......to be continued.

- In order to understand American history, we need to look at the events of the past as more prismatic than the narrative given to us in high school textbooks.
- Including different voices can paint a more full and vibrant portrait of America. Which is why more walks of American life can and should be storytellers.
There is no doubt that the historical Jesus, the man who was executed by the Roman State in the first century CE, was a brown-skinned, Middle Eastern Jew.
I grew up in a Christian home, where a photo of Jesus hung on my bedroom wall. I still have it. It is schmaltzy and rather tacky in that 1970s kind of way, but as a little girl I loved it. In this picture, Jesus looks kind and gentle, he gazes down at me lovingly. He is also light-haired, blue-eyed, and very white.
