WHAT SHOULD BE NEW?

CLASSROOM-LESS CLASSROOMS….

According to a recent UNESCO study, 57 Million children lack classroom “access”. Here are just two countries that over a MILLION “school-less children”:

1.6 Million in India

1.7 Million in Ethiopia

TEF (THE ERMA FOUNDATION) would like to provide individual learning materials to each household (in India/Ethiopia) where a child is NOT attending school.

MY QUESTION:

Are there teaching computers/learning computers and teaching tablets/learning tablets that work….

(a) With electricity (a plug in learning computer/learning tablet).

(b) With electricity and and wireless router(the internet service would be FREE).

(c) With batteries (rechargeable batteries that would be collected and exchanged on a monthly basis).

?…..?…..?

MY 2ND QUESTION:

How can “learning computers/learning tablets” be distributed to 1,000,000 (school-less)children in India/Ethiopia?

(a) Corporations buy them (at a tax write off) and give them away.

(b) Foundations buy them (at a tax write off) and give them away (holding fundraisers if necessary).

(c) American Families “adopt-a-student” wherein the American family would pay for the “learning computer” or the “learning tablet” and the batteries and the shipping (at a tax write off of course).

NOW…..

TO MY FRIENDS AND FANS:

Do understand that I, Renee Ashley Baker, will not, NOT be “working in showbusiness” for 2 reasons:

1. I have a physical injury from which I need to “recover”.

2. I am expecting an “out of court settlement” in the amount of $20 Million to $25 Million Dollars and I will be “moving to New York” to throw cocktail parties and to “become a New York Socialite”. And In 2015 I will be moving to Paris France to launch “Erma French Perfume and Design” hopefully with the Wertheimers.

Also…. 3. It is my relatives CL and Miguel (not Renee Ashley Baker) who is in the movie industry and who is in the music industry. And this–is how it is going to stay.

Also…4. Either I, Renee Ashley Baker, “cast/hire” who I want to or I, Renee Ashley Baker, don’t work….(Tom Cruise would have been my choice…Surprise !….Surprise !).

WANT TO START YOUR OWN BUSINESS? GOT AN INVENTION? (TEN PLACES TO FIND MONEY)

September 11, 2009

RE-MI-DE
(A New Invention)
by
Renee Ashley Baker

PRODUCT: A MINE SWEEPER/MINE DETECTOR (CALLED “ReMiDe”)

PRINCIPLE: A Land Mine sweeping/ Land Mine detection “device” that would operate via remote control (just like the military’s unmaned missile-armed drones).

TECHNOLOGY (MECHANICS): A mini (12-inch round) “saucer shaped” hovercraft (“ReMiDe”) that would be armed with a “metal detecting radar technology” or a “metal reading/viewing software”.

2. My mini “saucer shaped” hovercraft (“ReMiDe”) would float, gravitate (travel) above the ground much as a “Robovac” travels along the floor–exploring and sweeping–in a “grid”.

3. Once the “location” of a “Land Mine” is detected a “destroyer rover” (WILLIS) is then sent to “destroy” the “Land Mine”.

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW SKUNK WORKS ? (Hughes Aircraft personnel? Lockheed Martin ?)

CAN YOU FEEL ME ? (Blackstone Venture Capital Group?)

REMEDY:
The name “ReMiDe” is an acronym (and an anachronism) for “RENEE MINE DETECTOR” …. (I named my invention after myself….).

MY INSPIRATION ?
I was influenced by the Japanese Company “Geosearch” and I was influenced, of course, by Princess Diana and her cause to “find and destroy” MINE FIELDS….

TO FLY WITH THE ANGELS….OR….TO SWIM WITH THE SHARKS….WHICH….IS RIGHT FOR YOU ?

So–you’d like to “start your own business”. But–where will you get financing? Financing for new businesses has become especially hard to find in these “hard” economic times. Below are ten suggestions for those who are “seeking capital” to start their own business…..

THE ANGELS:
1. Angel Capital
(Go to: http://www.activecapital.org

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT:
7. SBA’S NEW “ARK” PROGRAM
http://www.sba.gov

THE COMMUNITY:
8. Community Banks
(Community Banks: Compared with the more impersonal big lenders that have thousands of branches, these banks are more likely to employ lending officers that understand the local economy . Some even specialize in commercial loans. Find a list at icba.org

9. Community Development
(Community Development Financial Institutions: The Treasury Department distributed $54 million last year to 89 licensed community banks and nonprofits , which then made small-business loans to thousands of people. The goal is to spur economic growth in low income areas. Although you don’t have to be “low income” to qualify for the program, your company must be based in a qualifiying region.

THE SHARKS (as in “to swim with”….)
