Live Open Science Fellowship
I am Bob Greenyer, a clean energy researcher,
founder and leader of the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project .
Since 2012, I have been funding myself to do open research and to support the above project which in turn helps other scientists and educates the wider community.
I believe that the project I volunteer for has pioneered the concepts of live open science and allowed many more people to understand the realities of what I call the New Fire. I am passionate to see my contribution continue and grow but I must be fair to those who rely on me, principally my family.
Without support, continuous unfunded allocation of my time to the project is not compatible with my responsibilities as a father to my 3 young children and to my beloved partner.
Money will be used to make it possible for me to dedicate time to the projects goals without sacrificing my families future.
Last week, my sisters best childhood friend, a girl that changed my nappies as a baby and a family friend also, was given weeks to live having been diagnosed with in-operable brain cancer.
Yesterday, a man I interviewed 400 animation students to select as my first employee in India, a man I trained and employed for best part of a decade, my office manager - a brilliant artist, funny and a talented technician who even helped with artwork at the start of the formation of the MFMP, died on his way to his lead art director job at a multinational company in Bangalore.
A van crashed into him from behind as he was on his bike going to work. He is survived by his wife of 2 years and their 18 month old daughter.
I don't know what to do but I will dedicate my next presentation to him, and I will work as hard as I can to share what I understand and have realised as soon as possible.
Life is too short and it may be shorter than you think.
Thankyou for those that helped support my trip to Sochi and since.
I have published the presentation now and will do a follow up steemit with some commentary.
Today, I went out with the family for a walk and a bite to eat at a vegetarian restaurant where you only pay for the weight of the food on your plate - great idea.
Anyhow, I got my food and sat down in the children's play area, our children playing behind me. I took one mouthful and looked up, there was a series of children's sketches on the wall in frames, the first I looked at was the one in the photo. Four spirals around a yin yang with living creatures around it. It is amazing how much more children are connected to the truth before they have it educated out of them.
Soon you will understand why this image was so freaky to see, but it was weird for Kim and I and when our 5 year old came and sat with us, he independently said "Look dad, that's like your thing."
O-Day is coming...
This was the last video I recorded before I left Sochi - so tired I could barely speak.
Anyhow, essentially the lift door open and close buttons actually work there - this was also true of other buildings such as at Synthestech's offices.
Really appreciate your donations.
Going to try and put out some more presentation recordings today.
Thankyou so much for your help, the trip cost here to Sochi is now covered, but more importantly, I have a little left over to contribute at home. I have enough money to help buy a clothes dryer which will really help my family this winter and make it easier for me to get support from my family to go on the next trip in which I hope to go to Moscow and visit many of these scientists in their labs. Not possible this time due to VISA expiry.
Here is a video of the last hot buffet meal in Sochi.
