The Case for the Brexit




Daniel Hannan delivers an amazing speech explaining why he is voting to exit the EU. As a MEP in Brussels his pitch is "Fire me!"

Oh how I wish we had a political class that even remotely resembled this man.

Shale Oil & Gas Rises Phoenix Like




Despite the best shot of OPEC and the Green Allies in the west the Shale Oil & Gas industry in the US is rising, again, from the ashes of an all out assault that saw oil drop to $26 a barrel. 


Between the glimmer of hope for Nuclear power - environmentalist that ACTUALLY believe carbon emissions are a problem support expansion of nuclear power - and the vast reserves of oil and gas in tight shale formations world wide the world is poised to leverage cheap clean energy for a very long time. If the coal industry survives the left's concerted attempts to bankrupt it then poor people all over the world will enjoy access to cheap energy to help raise them out of poverty. Energy, whether produced by oil & gas, coal, nuclear power plants, hydroelectric dams, solar panels, windmills or some other mechanism - is critical to raising the poor out of poverty. A combination of cheap energy, liberty, private property rights, and non-crony based capitalism can raise billions of people out of poverty

Toys in the Classroom




Those of you who follow the blog know I'm advocate flipping the classroom to increase teaching time. Another simple teaching technique I favor involves use of toys to teach. In the video linked below the "toy" explains the Pythagorean theorem perfectly!

Building Information Modeling - BIM - Experiencing Explosive Growth




A new study finds a rise in the use of BIM tools, with growth in Asia especially impressive. My caution to the industry is not to forget the process side of the arch where continuous improvement opportunities lie and to realize new legal frameworks are required to achieve real lasting success in the arena.

The world BIM market is expected to reach a value of $11.7 billion by 2022, registering a CAGR of 21.6% during 2016 -2022. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness an upsurge in demand owing to the exponentially growing construction industry and supportive government regulations for mandating the use of BIM. Furthermore, BIM is forecast to gain increasing adoption across various sectors such as commercial and infrastructure construction.
