Monday Rundown: Teaches Patience
It’s Monday, and if you’re new to Quarterlife Man (welcome), you’re new to the Monday Rundown. The Monday Rundown is a compendium of randomness compiled over the course of each week. Enjoy…
––You Are Learning Patience:
I bet you’re wondering what’s going on. (Sometimes I do that, too, in general.) Here’s the story: in addition to being founder and fearless leader of Quarterlife Man, I am also the Director of Operations and an assistant coach for men’s lacrosse at Palm Beach Atlantic University. Most of the time, this balance of two loves (reaching people for Jesus and lacrosse) works pretty well. Sometimes (like this past week), it doesn’t.
As it happens, we are hosting the Sailfish Shootout, one of the premiere regular season tournaments in college lacrosse at our level. I am on a lacrosse field for full days at a time, so this week has been and will be a little crazy. In addition, many of my writers are vacationing this week, so expect a lighter week, content-wise.
––Who Didn’t See This Coming?:
The Chevy Volt will be discontinued on a short-term basis, due to low sales. Surprised? I’m not sure who could be surprised… especially giving the starting sticker price above $40k. Given governmental help with the Volt and its’ development, I hope this further stacks the deck toward development purely in the private sector.
––Today’s News From The Future:
Last week, I mentioned a scary little invention called robot bees. This week, we have equal craziness, including:
- A hydrogel that acts like a velcro solution at the molecular level. Think self-repairing contacts, for example.
- Four scenarios for the future of energy (including one doomsday scenario!).
- News of solar energy “going viral.”
––Also from the Future of Tech:
Gigabit internet. As in, downloading a two-hour movie in five seconds, gigabit internet. It is the center of an entrepreneurial competition in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where investors are soliciting ideas for what to do with the high-speed connection. How cool is that?
Also, if you’re interested in ponying up for the 1-gigabit-per-second service, that’ll cost you a cool $350/month. (Part of me is willing to justify that cost)
[box_success]Thanks for reading. Check back next Monday for more of the Rundown and, as always, tweet us (@QuarterlifeMan) if you have any suggestions![/box_success]
