If E.T. is indeed out there, where is he, she, it? Technology on Earth has advanced to the point that our telescopes such as the Kepler Observatory are able to detect planetary objects orbiting stars in far off regions of space and we find more of them every year as our ability to reach further and further into the universe also grows.
At a recent meeting of the smartest of the smart at the Mathematical Association of America, in Boston, mathematician Thomas Hair of Florida Gulf Coast University, presented a paper in which he postulates that either E.T. isn’t out there after all or if he is, he is avoiding Earth.
In his research, Hair concludes that societies on planets much older than Earth would have had more than enough time to evolve and to develop the technology necessary to probe out into the universe, as we do now, and during that time to be able to slowly move further and further with colonies and ships that could reach Earth.
Based on his research, Hair concludes that if there are intelligent alien life forms on planets much older than earth, they must be passing us by in their exploration of the universe. Hair offers the opinion that if we are being ignored it could very well be because these advanced beings really don’t need anything that we have on Earth, so in essence, we aren’t worth the trip.
Hair also notes that if there is intelligent life in space that they would have no problem at all in detecting life on our planet. Simple analysis of the chemicals floating around our atmosphere alone would give far away E.T.s all the evidence they need that life exists here, if not necessarily the most intelligent life.
The other possibility is that perhaps intelligent life on other planets doesn’t exist, that life as we know it is very, very rare and that if life exists elsewhere, it can’t travel to Earth in spaceships; not yet anyway.
Very interesting alternate take on the whole subject considering that almost everyone believes that if there are billions of stars and planets that alone must mean that intelligent life exists in the universe. There is a book called Rare Earth that speculates that perhaps we may very well be alone?
New Devices and Software Options
One of the issues with introducing new devices into a company is the fact that such items might not have an especially large number of programs available at the start of their release which means that the necessary programs for a particular business might not be usable on some of the company devices. Other types of software are generally available for many new types of devices such as auditing software and tracking software that can help a company keep track of things like expenditures, time spent on various projects and the necessary changes required within the budget between quarterly investigations.
Upgrading Server Space
There are a number of different and positive options regarding the expansion and upgrading of various server configurations for average sized businesses and when considering which colocation providers to purchase space from, one of the issues is usually going to be just how much that company is going to allow regarding upgrades and expansion. If a company is rather small and doesn’t need a tremendous amount of space, going with a smaller provider might be just fine even if there are issues requiring expansion later.
Outsourcing Recovery Options
For anyone who is concerned with the level of recovery offered by various types of recovery options, it’s likely that there are different results that come from Oklahoma City hard drive recovery versus the type of recovery that might be handled in house. For the majority of digital operations, there are some built in recovery options available, but if a company hasn’t focused upon creating the right sort of backup plan in-house, it’s likely that obtaining a third party backup option might actually be less expensive in the long run since the investments will be the responsibility of the hired company.
Rihanna and Chris and Mixing
After a brawl that left them both bruised, the relationship between singers Rihanna and Chris Brown was never the same and much of the music world sided with Rihanna when Chris was made to face police charges regarding the fight. But it would appear as though there has been a bit of music mixing handled on one of their songs and this hasn’t gone over well with all of their fans. Some people have remained significantly in Rihanna’s court and haven’t wanted to see any other collaboration between her and Brown but apparently the remix was Rihanna’s idea.
