Wild pomegranate (Burchellia bubalina): Season’s Greetings 2019 ! * * * Happy New Year LETTER

Season’s Greetings 2019!

Scott and Jane MacLeod, Christmas, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 2019

Dear friends,

Happy New Year 2020! And Merry Christmas ...  A Desiderata poem focus in 2020: https://mwkworks.com/desiderata.html (https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/12/antarctica-mcmurdo-bay-merry-christmas.html)? 

Global university work continues daily - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/search/label/global%20university - with regards to wiki MIT OCW-centric World University and School. And it looks like we'll collaborate with Harvard and MIT's edX in 2020 for WUaS's 2nd class for free-to-students' CC-4 MIT OCW-centric WUaS Bachelor degrees. And glad to write I just published my 4th book "To the Dance or the Pools? ~ Virtually! How different it is to Soak at Harbin Hot Springs than to realize it in virtual Reality" (http://worlduniversityandschool.org/AcademicPress.html ~ http://amazon.com/author/scottmacleodworlduniversity) - and which I had hoped would be in Google Street View, with time slider, by the time of publication, but potentially at some point! My actual-virtual, physical-digital Harbin Hot Springs' ethnography and poetry project continues, and am hoping to write and publish a 2nd actual-virtual Harbin ethnography FROM Google Street View with time slider in the next year or two! Will create my first Scottish small pipes' album this year, tentatively entitled Honey in the Bag,as well as publish my next book of poetry in 2020 too! Still seeking a life-partner with whom to begin a family. 

Happy New Year, and looking forward very much to seeing you in 2020! Here’s a poem from my new book with same name as title of book - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/11/chameleon-vision-poem-to-dance-or-pools.html?m=0 !

Is 2020 the year of the robot (or the 2020s) - and at World University and School too? And will the 2020s be the decade for Actual-Virtual, Physical-Digital innovations, and Robot-Avatar Bot innovations too? And will we all have 'Avatar Bots' like email addresses (e.g. see the avatars in "Aphilo Scott MacLeod The Making of Virtual Harbin Introduction" - 

https://youtu.be/3nhvcHw54GE) that correspond to physical robots even 

https://twitter.com/LEGO_Education/status/1212010632981237760?s=20 World University and School is also seeking to plan for, brainstorming-wise, coding for all 7.5 billion people for the following reasons (https://twitter.com/WorldUnivAndSch/status/1213143381011914752?s=20

All 7.5 billion people, each a Personal Identification Number PIN# (instead of a Wikidata Q-item # number) for: 

i) wiki Universitians in 7,111 known living languages, and matriculated students in all ~200 countries, 

ii) Avatar Bot Electronic Medical Records, with genetic therapies, and for molecular tele-robotic surgery, for ex., 

iii) Universal Basic Income (UBI) experiments (and to alleviate poverty), and to DISTRIBUTE a single crypto-currency backed by some number of ~200 countries' central banks (where the Euro is in 19 out of 28 EU countries, and backed by their central banks in one way or another) ... and potentially with UBI experiment recipients able, for example, to mine the "Mine Pi" crypto-currency (as a mineable single crypto-currency), developed by Stanford graduates, by clicking on the 'lightning button' brainstorming-wise. 

iv) a single family tree for genealogy research as in WikiTree (https://www.wikitree.com), and for aggregating DNA samples too (see item 2 again) ... and for innovative genealogical research.

v) Computer glasses for all 7.5 billion people on the planet - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2020/01/outback-3-computers-per-person-all-75.html ?

In what ways could WUaS plan in Wikdata for all 7.5 billion people each a Wikidata Q-item # and for the above reasons and many more (and keeping in sync with Wikipedia's mission of "the sum of all human knowledge" where all 7.5 billion people generate this with their language, for example)?

See, too these 'longevity' blog posts here - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/search/label/longevity - with interesting prospects for extending life or reversing aging, beyond 122 years of age with genetic therapies. 

It’s been another generative year for ideas in terms of daily blog posts - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com - as well.

Happy New Year and best wishes to all of you and your loved ones in this holiday season!

World University and School Founder and President

Seeking to find the article about the seriousness of global warming from Harvard in my blog from 2018 https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2018/02/harvards-james-mccarthy-honored-for-climate-change-insights/ from http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/07/sailing-to-penikese-island.html (and other posts) to post in 1/1/20 blog entry ... https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2020/01/quaking-aspen-populus-tremuloides.html

And re longevity and age-reversal from Joi Ito and about Harvard and much about MIT Professor of Genetics George Church https://web.archive.org/web/20180605002848/https://www.wired.com/story/the-responsibility-of-immortality/ from https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/06/montane-ecosystems-longevity.html  in 12/31/19 blog post - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2019/12/wild-pomegranate-burchellia-bubalina.html ... :)
