Knowledge what is it

Knowledge from Wikipedia:
Knowledge is a familiarity with someone or something, which can include facts, information, descriptions, or skills acquired through experience or education. It can refer to the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject. It can be implicit (as with practical skill or expertise) or explicit (as with the theoretical understanding of a subject); it can be more or less formal or systematic. [1] In philosophy, the study of knowledge is called epistemology; the philosopher Plato famously defined knowledge as “justified true belief.” However, no single agreed upon definition of knowledge exists, though there are numerous theories to explain it.

I had to think about what knowledge means to me. Knowledge is something you know, knowledge should be shared, knowledge needs to be learnt. Some people have more knowledge than others in different situations and experiences.

I believe I have more knowledge in the wireless communication industry than most others because of my years in the industry and my continued education by reading about the new trends.

What does knowledge mean to you?

Does Infinity Really Exist? Scientific American

The below statement is an excerpt from the book
That which is infinite cannot be many, for many-ness is a finite concept. To have infinity you must identify or define that infinity as unity; otherwise, the term does not have any referent or meaning. In an Infinite Creator there is only unity. You have seen simple examples of unity. You have seen the prism which shows all colors stemming from the sunlight. This is a simplistic example of unity.

First day of living below the line.

I decided not to change my daily activities too much with this challenge. The people around the world who have to live on $1.50 a day of food probably don’t have a desk job like me. So I still went to the gym this morning and did a hour of weights and 25 minutes of stationary bike. I weighed in at 193lbs on the first day of this project. My decision to go to the gym this morning was to satisfied my ego ( I don’t want to shrink to much) and equaled the playing field a little with the people who have to do physical work to earn that $1.50.

My choice of food for the next 5 days are rice, beans and eggs which cost a total of $7.20 at Publix.

I started cooking and decide not to use any salt or seasonings because it did not fit into my budget, big mistake everything tastes so plain. I will try to post major changes and my progress here but most of my updates will be on twitter.com/curtismatthews

Living below the line of poverty

Living Below the Line is a challenge to see if you can do what 1.4 billion people in the world living in poverty have to do everyday. The next 5 days I will have to survive on $1.50 a day of food. That’s $7.50 for the next 5 days of meals ( food and drink).
I already feel like I cheated because I was able to jump in my car and drive to Publixs and buy what I need. I seriously doubt the 1.4 have cars or can afford gas.

I also know the $1.50 is used by the 1.4 for food, shelter and clothing while I just have to budget food. This challenge will teach me and I hope to be able to learn what I can do to make a difference.

I am taking donations for the World Food Program USA. This charity is working to solve global hunger. Around the world, 1 in 8 people go to bed hungry each night. School meals have the power to break the cycle of hunger and poverty, by giving children the chance to learn, grow and reach their full potential. We can end hunger, but we can’t do it without you. All proceeds benefit school meals for children in the world’s poorest countries.
