Excerpt from Capstone Project :

¶ … lost book. The idea is to have a sticker that contains a code, by which an item can be located. If you are looking for an item, it will be equipped with a signal that, when you ask for it, will respond.

A variation on this technology already exists in the logistics field, where the RFID concept was adapted to use Bluetooth and smartphone apps. Bluetooth Low Energy technology that sits dormant is utilized. Apple has its iBeacon, and commercial uses for this are in development stages already (Swedberg, 2013). If a model can be developed that will support some sort of signal that can ping back to the phone when the app calls it, this will allow people to locate any strip. They can then put the strip on anything they don't want to lose, be in a book or a laptop, or a wallet or car keys. The applications from the user's perspective can be fairly broad. This technology, if priced right, can be attractive to both commercial and residential users.

There are several stakeholders, in addition to consumers. Existing technology rights holders are either potential suppliers or potential competitors, if they can develop a competing application. Certainly this is another area where smartphone makers and telecom companies are stakeholders since they are helping provide this service, and we would need the API for different mobile operating systems in order to make this work (Orenstein, 2000). Existing technology that can be adapted for this purpose creates partnership...


Coding for the app, in addition to marketing ability, will be needed.

Financial backers will need to be persuaded, as well as someone who can code an app (or three), in order that the app is produced, the technology licensed and that we have a marketing budget.

Project #2 -- The second project is for a water solution. Right now on the market there are individual water filters, and of course commercial availability of bottled water. But our drinking water resources tend to come from only a few reservoirs. If one were to be polluted, this would create significant strain on the water system and it would constrain health. There is risk from things like E.Coli and risk from terrorism as well, as an attack on the water supply would be incredibly destructive, and homeland security has identified water resources as being at risk (EPA, 2014). We have enough rain in the Puget Sound region, and much of it goes straight back into the Sound, where it could be captured.

In places that are off the grid, rainwater is often…

Athens lost the Peloponnesian War for two main reasons. The first was the drain of fighting Sparta, Sparta's allies, Corinth, and Thebes. The protracted, atrocious, and murderous war lasted nearly three decades, gnawing away at the agrarian infrastructure, wrecking the social progress of civic traditions, and consuming an impoverished Athens. The second reason was the effect of the invasion of Syracuse. The invasion lost Alcibiades, all of the army and
