Child protection location device Printer Friendly Version
During the last few months there has been a rush of child abductions in the U.K. Most of these cases conclude in quite tragic circumstances. A case this week in Cambridge, which involved two ten-year-old friends, led me to the following idea.
The police didn’t pursue a case of abduction until three days had passed. By this time the children could be anywhere.
I don't want to be seen as profiteering on these tragedies nor do I wish to use scare tactics in advertising, but the truth is technology is available today that, with a little adapting, can save a lot of time and lives and in some cases prevent this sort of thing happening altogether.
Allot of us have cars with GPS location or tracking. There are even battery powered personal location devices available on the market. Pets are fitted with id chips, criminals are tagged, and yet the most precious commodity that the human race can produce is left to fend for itself. There is a global market of children who need to be protected, and we can do something about it.
What would it take to develop these devices for the protection of our children?

Please contact me for further information.

The Best Childrens Hospital in the World Printer Friendly Version
All too often, when a child is critically ill with a terminal or life threatening illness, families are divided. Siblings are taken away from the sick child, and parents struggle to find a place to sleep in their child's room at the hospital, or worse, must leave their child for the night to get a decent amount of sleep. Children need their parents, especially when they are sick and may never get better. I propose a children's hospital that also offers types of hotel rooms for parents. The hospital should have themes to every room, to make the hospital less scary, games and entertainment rooms, and maybe even a mini theater. This hospital would not be for kids who were just sick for a few days. This hospital would be for very very ill children, like kids with cancer, cystic fibrosis, or other illness that threaten their lives for a long period of time. While they would still be treated at the hospital with chemo and what not, the hospital would also focus on treating their souls and their minds, and fostering the joys of childhood, inside the hospital walls. Or, someone could just invent a cure for cancer!
