Celebrating Victories - Positive Reinforcement

The concept of reinforcement was here long before Skinner. It was here, for example, in architecture. Reinforce what is good. Reinforce efficiencies. Celebrating victories gives your mind something to look forward to when your getting tired. It chains the turmoil of the moment to a sweet victory. To celebrate victories is part of our human makeup.

Day Water Cafe - marketing thoughts

If you are looking for the Day Water Cafe.. Here it is
http://www.nightfirenaturalfoods.com/

The Day Water Cafe opened in Klamath Falls. Huge success. Why?

1. High energy and positivity of founders and employees.
2. High level of responsiveness to requests.
3. An organic local foods focused cafe that is adjacent to their health food store with an wide open passage in between.
4. Very excellent food.
5. Good variance on prices. Gourmet chocolate or about 20 cents for a slice of organic watermelon.

Klamath Falls just got better. Paris

SuperAdobe - super adobe method

If you have never seen a super adobe house, you are in for a treat. I met the architect who pushed this technique. He passed away recently. I can only say that he was a very beautiful man who cared about humanity. This stuff is brilliant. Here is a link. SuperAdobe

Thoughts on Local vs Federal or International Control

It seems to me that the more complex the issue or the more an issue requires rich communication, the more this issue should be locally controlled. Local control allows for multiple experimentation vs. monolithic slow moves.

We seem to chain the mass with the errors of the foolish, thus the foolish not only do damage but also restrict all by the new impositions placed on everyone.

Local is harder to corrupt by big money. Centralized power is easy to corrupt.

I think that many of today's issues and needs are best solved on local levels. Even local barter economies could insulate against monetary collapses.
