Ocean Polymer Goo to Stop Enemy Ships, a Concept
Naval blockade using polymer goo to stop fleeing ships might be possible. In this concept we will use the goo to stick to the bottom of the opposing navy's vessels. Is operation; "Salad Bowl" a secret weapon? No, blockades have been going on since warships have been used. It is merely another tactic in the arsenal as the modern use of blockades moves forward. Currently we are opposed by an enemy, which is running out of ways to attack us and therefore is looking desperately for new ways to disrupt our flows. This of course will not work long term, but as they try and fight the inevitable to the end and as that end draws nearer we are seeing thru their underground correspondence and call to action, such directions as attacking our ports, harbors, pipelines and supply chains. We know our enemy and we know they know about construction, shipping, oil and are involved in high finance, thus as we saw inn the 9-11 attacks use of such knowledge using a non-linear approach.
We can expect additional attempts on our facilities, supply routes and even attempts to get nuclear weapons into our ports. We must use all available opportunity to show force, strength and power against such potential eventualities. Use of the Salad Bowl Technique is a very important non-lethal use of technology. By slowing or stopping the enemy we control all the chips and can then negotiate a surrender, if not we blow them out of the water which could be catastrophic for the environment, enhance the enemies resolve for further revenge or reciprocal response against our over seas assets or business interests. Such as oil pipelines, hotels, embassies, philanthropic organizations, allies or refineries.
Stopping a single ship is much easier as the "goo" mixture could be airdropped directly in its path by approaching the vessel head on from 100 feet off the deck while simultaneously instituting a directional electronic attack. The Goo would be immediately activated and agitated from the cargo plane airdrop. The unexpected ship would have only seconds to respond, not knowing what was going on or even hearing the aircraft until it was almost upon it. The "goo" would spread quickly and gum up the rudder and propeller. Several large cargo planes could lay down a stripe ten football fields wide along with smoke screen. An attempt to shoot down an aircraft with chafe would be in vain and the mission would be over almost as soon as it started. The ship would be floating in goo for three days stuck. Any attempt to get unstuck would only add to the dilemma and exacerbate the problem of the enemy ship. Any attempt to abandon the ship would render all lifeboats also stuck for the duration of the gooey mess's useful half-life or natural decomposition rate due to the salt water dissolving characteristics of your goo.
If you are unable to negotiate with the International Terrorists as is often the case or you simply choose not to, then you can come in with an AUV shaped like a knife, which could in fact travel into the gooey mess. The AUV would be dropped by one of the three to five aircraft dropping the goo mixture after the drop past the ship and it would swim back monitoring the information of the ship. Has it's engines stopped, has it been disabled, are boats abandoning the ship, has the ships communication system been totally disabled by the EA part of the mission? All information would be relayed to satellite. If the ships continues or evades the goo some how, the AUV will pursue following closely. The AUV will have a small door and extended arm and cut a couple of holes in the bottom of the ship and let it sink at the time of your choosing and calculate the buoyancy to sink it the way you want to? Slow, fast, stern first capsize it onto the starboard side, whatever you wish? Perhaps you want to tip it over to cocoon it from environmental impact sinking it upside down? You do not have to deal with the humans aboard trying to hamper your efforts. The AUV could seal up the holes on the bottom of the ship or topside as it lies on the bottom. Environmentalists are happy, sea life safe, international terrorist threat gone. Next Target!
You might choose to attack stranded ship by air with a smart weapons using non-explosive high velocity missiles which went thru the ship thru the lower levels and the ship would sink as it takes on goo and water. Or use it for target practice for the US Navy for three days, as we seem to be running out of target practice ranges these days with all the islander complaints? Think on this crazy concept, you think it could work?

Active Aerial Minefields
Is it possible to build an active aerial minefield to protect our troops and in-country logistical supply lines? The answer is probably yes. The Germans attempted to use hot air balloons with charges on them.
Efficient Transportation Systems
We see in the organized world of the Japanese with their transit systems and floating airports and super engineering anti-Tsunami bridges many ideas in the theory of flow, which assists every part of their society and civilizations. They are masters of the flow of transportations and work hard to perfect every aspect and detail of their transportation system.
747 Onboard Laser Might Cause Mistake and Identity
Remember when the Russians shot down a Korean Airlines 747 accidentally, which was 4 degrees off it's course and flew over Russian Airspace. Migs shot it down with two missiles, one hitting the tail and one hitting the left wing, everyone on board died.
The Ecology of Environmentalism
The concept of "nature" is a romantic invention. It was spun by the likes of Jean-Jacques Rousseau in the 18th century as a confabulated utopian contrast to the dystopia of urbanization and materialism.

Using Mosquito MEMS to Collect DNA Samples
Soon scientists will have scaled down robotic insects. This is a good thing and most of this technology is being funded for Department of Defense uses as they will have a killer application there indeed.
Hibernate Enemy with Gas Cloud
Scientists have discovered chemicals, which cause humans to go into a hibernation type state similar to our mammal cousins the bear. This discovery has many killer applications from first responders slowing the bio-systems of those who are seriously injured to long-term space flight or even stopping a civil unrest or riot, which has gotten out of control.

Is Thought Evident in Plants?
Who would have thought that a plant could be a witness to a crime - and even testify against the perpetrator? Well, it is true! In the early 1970's experiments were done on ordinary houseplants, by researchers who connected a polygraph machine to a plant.An interesting thing happened - the researchers discovered that their plants actually recognized their owners, they responded to being talked to and praised, and they also fainted when exposed to negative thoughts or words, or violence directed at them.
Embryonic Stem Cell
Stem cells are primitive undifferentiated cells that have the capability to form any of the 220 different types of cells in the human body. The embryonic stem cell is found in the embryo and develops into various cells that make a baby.

Hyper Sound Wave Emissions to Quiet Helicopters
It is possible to disrupt the sound waves coming from a flying helicopter and re-direct those sound waves up. This would mean on a day with no clouds you would not be able to hear the helicopter from the ground.
Whispering Windows For Observation Decks of ISS and Moon Colonies
Talking glass, which was featured recently in the famous Tom Cruise Movie "Minority Report" where advertising would spring to life and communicate with the actor; is not new science. In fact it has been around since the 1940's and some believe that the ghost of Lincoln, which was discussed in the biographies of Richard Nixon as being in the White House when looking at his picture on the wall was Whispering Windows Technology.

Dowsing is definitely an intuitive art and one of the oldest forms of divination in the world. Perhaps the oldest and most familiar image we have a dowser is what is called a field or map dowser.
Aerodynamics and Hydrodynamics of the Human Body, Birds, and Boeing
The aerodynamics of the human body are very interesting indeed. This may sound somewhat funny, because human beings can't fly, however our desire to fly has enabled us to adapt and innovate to achieve the same purpose.
