Is Killing 99.9% of Bacteria and Germs False Advertising? The short answer is yes, because it is made as a blanket statement. The advertiser intentionally drops the amount of time (dynamic delay) needed to achieve the objective of killing 99.9%, for example they never say “instantly kills 99.9%” or “kills 99.9% in 10 minutes”, etc. For viruses and some germs, even the use of the word “kill” is misleading, because they do not die, they encapsulate themselves until better conditions exist again, then they are back to regular life. It takes 10 to 15 minutes for these chemicals to work, but then after you touch a door handle, you have to clean it again. This is why at hospitals, you have a full-time employee doing just that. There’s a better way, use copper-based door handles, it is naturally anti-bacterial due to its molecular structure. This is why, with trial-and-error and many casualties, people settled hundreds of years ago on using pots made from copper. Now, copper poisoning is a totally different discussion.
Some 18 months ago, Movie Director Ajmal Zaheer Ahmad invited me for an interview to provide a scientific opinion about the existence of Jinn (a creature made from Fire and is mentioned in the 3 holy books.) Ajmal released the movie Jinn on 4/4/14, but it was far from successful. What follows is my rant about Jinn from an Electromagnetics standpoint.
From the physics standpoint, there are 2 main issues regarding Jinn:
1. The eye as the tool for perceiving images. The images can be of physical or virtual objects. The eye has frequency limitations. Example, the bulb frequency at 60 Hz, the light actually blinks 60 times per second, but we do not see it blink, as our eye cannot resolve that frequency. So our understanding of the world will always be limited to what the eye can see. What it cannot see remains an unknown unkown.
2. Electromagnetic Specturm. When it comes to electromagnetics, we talk about a spectrum, yet we continue to talk about angels, humans, and Jinn. Perhaps there are other creatures for each level in the known electromagnetic spectrurm. So there maybe a continuum, not just discrete points.
Just below the visible spectrum that we can see, you can find infrared waves, and this is where Jinn belong to. On the other end, above the visible spectrurm, there is ultra-violet, above the clouds where angels belong. This is why angels are depicted as above the clouds light-weight short wavelength creatures. The point is that both angels and jinn operate outside the visible spectrum of the human eye. To see jinn, first you have to feel cold (consistent with reports) if you are near it, because it has to suck energy out of its surroundings to create that dense infrared hologram or ghost. That temperature gradient, will make the person seeing the ghost feel cold. Infrared waves are known to penetrate deeper into earth, thus the notion that Jinn live underground.
I think we are disturbing the lives of Jinn and other creatures today with our use of low frequency systems such as radars, microwave, and radio waves. They may be angry at us.
The word Jinn is also related to Jinna which in Arabic means madness or craze. This means that the devil, himself a Jinn, or other jinns can interfere with the human’s low frequency brain waves, and cause a behavioral change, on the extreme driving the person to insanity.
Maybe people in the past knew or saw of Jinn more than we did due to better spiritual connections, Jinn and the devil at the infrared level are almost always associated with the color red, which is the lowest frequency in the visible spectrum (the color of blood, longest wavelength, our eyes will see it quickly, it is a primitive instinct), vs. the blue color (high frequency, short wavelength) associated with angels and the blue skies. I can speculate easily that if a Jinn would show up here now, it would have a red color tone based on the energy needed to generate its ghost around the infrared frequency and going into a red color wavelength.
There’s a visual you always need to remember when you sell a product. It is a spotlight. The spotlight should be focused on the prospect (the buyer), and not on you the seller. If you hear yourself saying: we have the best products, we outsell the competition, we, we, we.. then you should know you’re having the spotlight on you the seller. This is annoying to the buyer, the buyer wants the spotlight on her, ask her the questions to uncover her needs, then offer your solutions. Many sellers who receive solution-selling training continue to waste a lot of time leaving the spotlight on the seller. Make your buyer feel like a queen, and the best advice to the seller is to check your ego at the door as you walk into your meeting.
There are many parallels between human body surgeons and household plumbers, similar to the parallels between dentists and mechanics. In fact, in the State of Michigan, dentists are officially classified as mechanics. And rightly so, for example, orthodontists study quite a bit of mechanics, dynamics, and materials science.
Surgeons do quite a bit of plumbing; they unclog arteries off of plaque build-up using chemicals and organic substance, similar to plumbers unclogging pipes with detergents and enzymes. Surgeons can stitch torn arteries today instead of amputating body parts, and plumbers do the same using soldering of pipes to keep existing parts. Surgeons can remove tumors resulting from rotting body parts, and so do plumbers with rusting and rotting plumbing components. Once sucks infected blood out, the other rusted stagnant water out. And so on.
The truth is that plumbing is deterministic and near science today, whereas surgery remains as an “art” or pseudo-science, and is less deterministic (relies on skill, trial-and-error, rules, best practices, etc.) It is very unlikely to find a plumber causing sudden death to the system he or she is trying to fix, whereas in surgery, given the uncertainty, complexity of structures, and “non-linearity” of materials response (visco-elasticity), it is seen as more likely. But people continue to pay surgeons higher fees for a job seen much less than perfect. What gives?
The morale of the story is that being more advanced and more deterministic does not pay off (e.g. engineers are paid peanuts today relative to their contribution.) It is better to be in a field where you can use external attribution to explain failure of materials and processes. This is why doctors and lawyers make the big bucks, they operate in a field full of uncertainty and inefficiency. This requires some major skills and training to deal with the unexpected. Things get worse when a surgeon does not anticipate the impact of the action he or she is taking on the body as a whole; i.e. ignoring system-level interactions. A procedure may be successful locally but it may cause problems elsewhere in the body (unexpected endocrine system response, kidney failure, high BP, etc.) Sometimes it is too late to rescue the system.
Doctors may have put themselves in a sandbox and they do not want to get out of it. A multi-disciplinary approach is needed where the experience of engineers, plumbers, system analysts, material scientists, electronic specialists, nano-technologists, etc. is pulled together to make medicine a more deterministic and integrated science. I wish I would live to see the day when every human is wearing an on-board diagnostics (OBD) device showing that all systems are running normal, or not? Automotive Engineers did it, look at your car. Doctors just need to raise the bar, and make it happen. Then, and only then will we pay them less 😉
When you work for someone else, be it another person or some corporate entity, you’re offering your labor to that entity to create capital for that entity. Then, a very “small” portion of the capital is paid back later as wages – as compensation for work performed. It makes most sense that you do not transfer out your labor, and keep it invested in yourself, your own corporate entity, because the capital you will create with your own labor, you will keep a larger % of. Why settle for a smaller % from an outside entity? Your work, your labor, it is all you have, it is your life, never sell it cheap. Start your own business today. The only difference between a worker, and a business owner is this mindset.
