    I watched this video last night. It's called "Shift Happens" and to say it startling is an understatement. I'd be curious as to others reactions.

    Great music as well. I can't identify it, can you?

    If the link doesn't work here's the cut and paste version

    Merry Christmas!

    A sign of the times and things to come.....

    China and India, their emerging technology, their population numbers, it is mind boggling to say the least....

    USA is asleep at the switch and will finish at the rear of the new Global Economy and Global Environment unless it comes up with some new innovative ideas really soon....

    Thanks for posting Jerry, really interesting and alarming...

    regards

    I'm glad you guys enjoyed it. It is my understanding that it came about through a consortium of college professors who wanted to show emerging teachers what they are up against and the need to prepare our children for the challenges of the 21st century.

    It sure got my attention to say the least.

    Now if someone could please identify the music......

    That's it! Thanks a bunch! I knew I heard it before but just couldn't place it. I need to get that sound track.

    Merry Christmas gift to myself.

    Jerry,

    Happy Holidays.

    Jeff A.

    Delco Field and Stream

    PS I took over as the Chief Trap range officer at DCFS. Anything you ever need let me know. I am starting from scratch and will be putting together a simple program for events. My first thing will be to make the "Jacket" shoot in September or October NOT the 2nd weekend of Buck season. I also would like to get rid of the jacket and go to something more championship worthy. I would also like to talk to you guys about entering in the registered circuit Sportsman and West Chester have going. I think it could work out pretty good and I can get some registered events going at DCFS.

    One of the traps will be open for doubles every Sunday. Also... I set all the traps up for the canterberry's or the wireless set so people can shoot solo from #1 to #4. I also cut a lot of crap away from #4 so it can be used effectively again.

    Tell Mike and Pam I said happy holidays as well!!!

    PSS Heard you won the "Jacket" shoot. Congrats!!!! I knew it would be swarming with entries LOL. Hopefully it will be much more challenging next year.

    You know my e-mail.

    That was really interesting. Some of those facts are hard to believe.

    Believe it or not it is coming. This is what is so difficult about the education world today. The parents think that kids don't need to follow rules or come to school. With the labor surplus that unskilled jobs will soon have, what employers will take it when the employee tells them to f****** off? Again, more people who can't keep a job and need a federal program to baby them. IMHO Omaha

    I found the fact that there are more english speakers in China than the United States very telling. It tells you where our economy is heading.
