Gordon Lightfoot – The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

My favorite song by him.  It sent chils up my spine when I first heard it.  It scared the poop out of me when I was in the Navy.  It made me feel adventurous in the Army.  Now in my older age it makes me feel discouraged and like I am fighting a future I can not change, one too powerful to stop, yet I must not give in until it takes me down.   Hugs.

Testing a REAL Exoskeleton – the Comau MATE

I find this really interesting.   One of the things I struggle to do is hold my arms over my head.   The pain builds quickly to very intense.  Also to stand for any length of time my spine starts to really hurt badly.  Something like this would really help me.   But it really might be good for people much worse than I am, in the future could people without the ability to walk use something like this?  Could people who have to use a walker use this instead?   This really is an important part of human / science interaction we need to look into.   Oh yes the first few minutes are silly, but get beyond them to where he goes to the factory and shows what the suit really can do for workers.   Hugs
