A Socialist, Atheist Humanist’s Dream For All Humankind

If you could invent anything to help other people, what would you create?

I’ve said it before and I will keep saying it until I find something better – but we could use replicators! Like the ones that you see in Star Trek and I would want it to be wide spread and readily available to everyone across the globe. You cannot allow big corporates or governments to run them – I don’t trust them. We will have to have independent bodies of governance for these replicators. If possible everyone should get homes enabled with the replicators for food & drink and clothes with other materials separate.

Think about it; we could wipe out poverty, hunger, homelessness in one giant swoop. We would no longer have anyone hungry if I could come up with one replicator that can then conjure up replicators for all. So you can replicate parts for big homes for everyone. No homelessness! Food and drink – and most importantly, all kinds of food and drink so you have all the choice in the world – without having to cook will be available, so no one goes hungry. Build that house, get some luxury in your life and sleep in peace after a nice meal.

So clean home and clothes and shelter, food and drink – all essentials met. Illness basically eradicated as everyone has access to the latest medicines. Your pets all save and well fed and lying on cozy beds right next to you in your rooms. What more could anyone ask for?

More Training And W@H Though It May End Soon

Thus ends another work week, though it was 4 days of work instead of 5 as we had Thursday as a holiday due to it being Onam. I am handling a 10 day training for new hire employees – nothing new as we have been doing that quite a lot this year – via Webex and I have been doing it in the 12:30 pm to 9:30 pm shift. The week before I was doing the 4:30 pm to 1:30 am shift. I think I like the latter shift better as I get to relax a bit after lunch and even get to watch some tv show episodes.

While I do not mind the 12:30 pm shift, the problem is I usually rush through lunch and do not take time to enjoy it as I have to work. I usually take a break at 3:30 pm but that is for eating a fruit (apples, grapes or bananas) and or getting some juice to refresh myself. Once the trainees come back from their 30 minute break, I continue with the day’s session which is a combination of my sessions and the online training that they have to take.

I usually get some coffee & a snack by 5 pm since I am still working from home and continue work. By 7pm or 7:30 pm the trainees need a break and I send them for their second break which is time for me to check my emails for the second time in the day, the first is as soon as I login. At 8pm we usually have a meeting for 30 minutes and then I get back to my batch and then send them home by 9:30 pm and then wind down for the day. I get dinner, field requests that come in at that time and see if I need to do anything else. By 10:30 pm or 11 pm, the work system is shut down and I relax for a while and then watch tv till sleep hits me.
