I am KF5UDQ

Since I was a kid I dreamed of having my Amateur Radio License, or Ham radio license.  My fascination with radios is part of why I got a degree in electrical engineering. But, I could never get very proficient as Morse Code, despite trying for years. In 2006 they dropped the Morse code requirement for licensing, and since then I’ve been meaning to give it a try. I finally did.

At the end of last month I passed the test for the Technician class license and got my call sign, KF5UDQ.  Then last weekend I took the test for the General Class license and passed it as well.

I still don’t have a transceiver, or radio.  But I’ve kinda sorta made a deal for one and I’m excited about getting on the air with it as soon as the deal is complete.  There are several amateur radio satellites that it is possible to communicate through and I want to try that. The idea of talking to satellites is something I find appealing.

Houston Texan’s Season

Houston Texans HelmetWe were 12-4 for the season and advanced to the Division round before loosing to a good team this year. That’s nothing to complain about. Sure I’m disappointed in the loss. But this was a year most teams would love to have.

We have some challenges. We have an excellent team and first rate coaches. We have an excellent organization behind the team. If anything our loss to the Patriots twice showed we just have a little bit of maturing to do, getting use to what it takes to win in the NFL.

I’m optimistic. We have a lot of good years ahead of us and I’m looking forward to the 2013 season.

What To Do?

What to do? What to do?

My parents did a lot for me when I was growing up as a young man, but one thing above all made whatever success I had possible. They made me believe that if I set my mind to any task I could accomplish it. It might take a long time. It might mean overcoming challenges I did not expect. But they made me believe, truly believe, that with enough hard work and determination anything was possible.

Success might not come at first. The price may be higher than you want to pay. But never think you can’t do it, because you can. My parents taught me that from the beginning and I could never thank them enough for it.

If you believe you can do anything you want to do, it begs the questions, “what do you want to do?” That to me was always a big question. You might say, that was always THE question.

You’ve been given a life. You’ve been given talents, things you can do well, things you like doing. What do you do with this life? How do you spend your time and your talents?

This last Sunday the Reverend Capri Grimes gave a sermon on service at the Magnolia United Methodist Church. Service in a Christian context means service to God, as it is for many religions. But as Bob Dylan sang, “You gotta serve somebody. It might be the Devil. It might be the Lord, but you’re gonna have to serve somebody”. But how to figure out what to do to serve, ways in which to serve? She says it’s easy to figure that stuff out, and I believe her.

Ask someone what your talents are. Make sure it’s someone who likes you, but they can tell you. Or deep down you know it yourself. You know, you really know what you are good at. You probably like doing it. What things do you like to do?

You can hear Reverend Grimes sermon HERE.

Years ago I had a short conversation with a friend around the first of the year. He said for the next year he was going to focus on a few things he didn’t do very well and try to improve on them. I told him while that idea sounded good on the surface I didn’t think it was a good idea. I thought he may not do those things very well because he didn’t like doing them. I told him I thought he should find some things he was good at and try to be the very best at those things. I told him I thought I would try to spend my time improving things I was good at, because usually I enjoyed doing those things more. And maybe I could grow to be the best at something.

The end of this year is coming, and with it many will be making New Year’s resolutions. I’m always struck by the resolutions, and I’ve made them, to stop doing something. Wouldn’t it be better to START doing something? Wouldn’t it be better to start doing something you’re good at, that you enjoy doing, and might somehow improve even a corner of your world?

It’s easier for me to not do something I shouldn’t if I’m busy doing things I should. Now back to the original question, what to do?

Faster Than the Speed of Light

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. – John 1:1

You may have been told that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light. That’s not true.

I’ve been fortunate to have been given the opportunity to be father or step-father to a bunch of amazing gentlemen. One of them recently asked me about his understanding that nothing could travel faster than the speed of light. It led to an interesting discussion.

According to Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity matter gets heavier as it approaches the speed of light, and time experienced by the matter relative to a ‘fixed’ point slows down. Just looking at the first part of that you see it means as something, say a ball, approaches the speed of light it gets so heavy that pushing on it harder doesn’t speed it up much more than it’s already going. At the speed of light it’s mass would be infinite. It would be heavier than Jupiter.  Time on the ball would slow down until it stood still. You could never get the ball to go faster than the speed of light.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

You know that information can travel on  radio waves.  You listen to a radio and hear what is being broadcast on the high frequency waves of the radio.  You are aware of fiver optics. Information travels on a light beam. The information may be a YouTube video or a conversation between cousins, but is still information.  The light is behaving as a very high frequency radio wave.

It can be shown that the information traveling on a light beam is traveling faster than the beam. That is to say information can travel faster than the speed of light.

If gets more interesting than that. Light is described as both a wave and a set of particles. It behaves as both. Imagine a tennis ball gun shooting tennis balls. Each time it shoots a ball it recoils a little because of the weight of the balls being shot out. When you turn on a flashlight there is an imperceptible “kick” to it as the light particles start shooting out of the flashlight. It’s as if the light is made up of little particles each with mass, at the same time it is behaving as a wave. L:ight is both matter (particles) and information (waves).

According to the Book of Genesis what did God create on the first day? Light. By the first verse of the first chapter of the book of John: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”.  Before there could be matter; before there could be air and water and plants and animals there had to be a transition from the Word (Information) to physical matter.  Light is that transition.  It is both information and physical matter. That is why God had to create light first.

 

You May Be a Communist

David and Goliath by Robert Temple Ayres

 

You hate big corporations? Why don’t you tweet that on your IPhone. – Anonymous

 

 

 

 

Rooting for the Underdog

We are conditioned to root for the underdog. Consider the ancient story of David and Goliath. It is inspiring to hear a tale where the weak summon their courage and persevere to defeat a better placed opponent. There is nothing wrong with that. But that story line has been hijacked by those that would use your better instincts for political gain.

Karl Marx is Not David

In “The Communist Manifesto” Marx describes a struggle between the powerful Bourgeoisie and the underdogs, the Proletariat. The powerful and greedy are only self-interested, preying on the weaker common man to exploit them. As with David and Goliath, the more virtuous the underdog and more evil the strong, the more appealing the story where the little guy gets to take on the big bad monster. I’ve read of evidence David and Goliath was an actual historical event corroborated outside of Biblical text, unlike the fairy tale of Marx.

Enter the Corporation

In our society the means of production, owned by the Bourgeoisie in the world of Marx, are seen to be in the hands of the powerful corporations. Corporations are described as greedy and bad, taking advantage of people’s needs to make money. What can the little guy do? It’s a popular story line heard said by Republicans and Democrats alike. It’s also the same story told by the Communist. The names have just been changed to advance a political agenda in the middle of the confusion over semantics.

Corporation are Indeed People

The Supreme Court of the United States ruled in the Citizen’s United case that corporations, being an assemblage of individuals, are entitled to the same protections of their speech as individuals themselves. And in fact corporations as a legal entity are an assemblage of individuals. A public corporation, one selling stock on Wall street, is in fact owned by people. Many of those people have their retirement moneys dependent on the success of that corporation. When a corporation fails, people get hurt. The employees get hurt, including the many people with money invested in that company, many of those without much to lose, such as retired teachers and firemen.

Profit is Not Evil

While they come together for the purpose of their collective gain and profit, that does not make them greedy. It does not make them bad. A group of people may be a church congregation operating a soup kitchen or it may be a lynch mob. Both groups may be operating in what they see as their own self interest, yet we do not hesitate to call one bad and the other good. Wanting to make money does not make an endeavor, a person, or a corporation bad. Otherwise people who get up to go to work in the morning are bad people. Don’t be silly. Yet we are.

Capitalism is Just

For a corporation to survive and prosper it has to provide a product or service in excess of what it consumes. It has to sell something. It may make hamburgers. It may fashion plastic into toothbrushes. If I give you a hamburger or toothbrush without extracting from those who get them enough in exchange to keep providing hamburgers and toothbrushes then I will no longer be able to serve my customers. Taking that money is not greed; in fact if I am greedy and charge too much another will replace me in the marketplace and I will suffer. If I don’t take enough, I will no longer be able to provide hamburgers or toothbrushes. There are winners if I take money. There are losers besides myself if I don’t.

Service is Good

People getting hamburgers and toothbrushes for their money are happy to make the exchange. They feel like they are “getting their money’s worth” or they would not keep buying those things from the people they do. They are being served by the corporation. And didn’t God teach us that serving one another was good? That’s right. I just called corporations an instrument of God’s goodness.

God placed everything we needed on this earth but designed it so that we would have to work together to prosper. Corporations are a mechanism of working together. Remember that next time you feel like engaging in the class warfare of Karl Marx with the “Us vs achat cialis 10mg. Them” rhetoric bad mouthing the big nasty greedy corporations. Without that corporation you might not be able to buy a toothbrush. And that big nasty greedy corporation, by providing toothbrushes, may have served more of God’s people that you have today.
