Elon Musk has been all around the news lately, known as one of the hottest entrepreneurs around.  He is the founder and CEO of companies such as Tesla, Inc. as well as SpaceX.  When he isn’t working on projects involving Teslas or space, Musk is always out there in the public eye.  One of his recent stints included consuming some cannabis on The Joe Rogan Experience (which you can read up more on here).

Whatever the case may be, Elon Musk definitely has some bright ideas for the country.  His latest project involves a huge tunnel in Los Angeles.  That tunnel will make way for something known as… hyper-loop travel.

You heard me right – hyper-loop traveling is happening very soon!  Elon Musk released a video this past weekend showcasing him walking through the two-mile tunnel created by his company the Boring Company (a subsidiary of SpaceX).  The tunnel extends from SpaceX’s office in Hawthorne, California to an LA suburb.  This tunnel is set to open on December 10th,with the aim to reduce traffic congestion within Los Angeles.  These tunnels will utilize autonomous, electric skates to move about 8-16 passengers at a speed of 124-155 mph.

It sounds like something straight out of Futurama – human beings entering an enclosed tube, only to be shot hundreds of miles per hour from one destination to another.  Human beings will soon be able to travel to farther destination within HOURS, even MINUTES.  Hyper-loop traveling is something man has been dreaming about for DECADES.

Hyper-loop traveling is the future of transportation here in America.  The science behind this concept is so innovative and revolutionary; but in a sense, it also takes some time to ponder about.  Human beings have been traveling over hundreds of miles in such quick speed (through airplanes and by trains), but hyper-loop is a completely unique mode of traveling.  Before we start establishing hyper-loop tunnels all across the nation, we will have to start small with Los Angeles.

Nevertheless, the fact that hyper-loop traveling is becoming more of a reality is truly a glorious thing to behold.  It won’t be long until tunnels start being constructed all across the nation.  Soon we will be living in a world where Boston citizens will be able to land in New York City via hyper-loop tunnels in under an hour.  Just imagine the countless number of business opportunities that await us in the near future.

With that, Elon Musk is one of many pioneers of the not-so-distant future.  More hyper-loop tunnels plan to open across Los Angeles, connecting more paths underneath the bustling city.  This is a PR miracle that will make history for the years to come in the name of technology.

You won’t have to dream about the future anymore – because the future is already here.

Canada’s Legal Cannabis Market – A national PR Miracle


Image result for Canada Cannabis

With all of these horror-themed posts these past weeks, I forgot about a recent PR miracle that happened in Canada recently.  While the United States is maneuvering through the cannabis culture, our upstairs neighbors made a bold move last week.  Since October 17th, 2018, Cannabis has become fully legal in Canada.

Canada is now the second country to legalize recreational cannabis.  Months after the vote was set and it is now in effect.  Not only were they the second country to legalize (after Uruguay), but they also became the world’s largest cannabis marketplace.  Canadian adults all across the nation can now get their hands on some legal greens.  Oh, Canada!

And the PR miracle is the gift that keeps on giving.  Canadian cannabis users are celebrating this amazing victory by toking up all around.  At least 111 pot shops opened on Wednesday and many more are expected to come in the future.  People have been toking up on the street, in their homes, at national parks; cannabis users are taking full advantage of this special moment.

Speaking of parks, Canada will allow patrons to smoke cannabis at national park campsites and hiking trails.  This rule goes for national parks all across the nation.  Now Canadians will be able to consume some greens while enjoying the lush greenery around the park.

While cannabis is legal in 1/10th of the United States, it is now fully legal all across Canada.  This PR miracle will create socio-cultural pressures among the two states.  Now that cannabis is fully legal in Canada (and they see the numerous benefits from the move!), the US will be pressured to follow suit.  This is one of the big dominoes that will topple over within the next few years.

Canada’s recent PR miracle signifies a global change for the cannabis community.  Cannabis is fully legal in ANOTHER country, meaning that another nation accepts the ever-growing 4/20 subculture.  Its only a matter of time before the United States caves in and legalizes it all across the nation.  Imagine a time where Nebraskan citizens don’t have to travel to a 4/20 state like California or Colorado just to get their hands on legal cannabis.

You won’t have to imagine for much longer because it will very soon become a reality.  The cannabis community is thriving higher than ever, with more members joining in from all across the world.

It is now America’s turn in the PR game of the cannabis industry.

A Bio-inspired Super-organism in Salem

Every now and then, I’ll come across some interesting art work around the area.  The cities come with interactive artwork, both indoors and outside.  While there isn’t as much greenery in cities like Boston, the complimentary artwork still makes the location fun to wander around.  This is kind of interactive art works well in places with less foot traffic.

In the bustling haunted streets of Salem, I came across a particularly interesting exhibit that was labeled Art in Progress.  MassArt students are building a bioinspired pavilion as part of the Wild Designs exhibition at the Peabody Essex Museum.  This temporary structure offers an imaginative encounter with the idea of a “superorganism”, a community of living things behaving like a single living entity.

The structure starts with a wooden walkway leading you up to the exhibit itself.  It features a small incline plane taking you up into the platform.

As you enter the middle of the hexagon, you see four tall pieces stacked around each other.  Each individual piece differentiates in height, going from small to big and back to small again.  From the front, they look tall and thin with many openings.  But as you look from the side, you start to see the colors melding in together.  Each wooden structure blending into one another, becoming one whole piece.

It symbolizes a super-organism at work, all wooden planks coming together to form one miraculous work of art.  Up close, each piece resembles an individual living organism at work.  From the side, the organism blend in together into one whole super-organism.

Who knew a simple interactive work of art in Salem could carry so much symbolic meaning.  It’s the kind of art that makes you stop to think about your role in the city.  You are one of hundreds of millions of organisms in the city, completing your work within the community.  Whether you are an artist or an accountant, you have your unique role as an organism who your community.

If you are ever visiting a city, its always great to check out intriguing artwork like this.  Cities like Salem or Boston always have works of art around the area (the Boston neighborhoods are a great place to go as well!).  All you have to do is roam around the less-populated areas of the city and you will discover something truly amazing.

Coca-Cola’s CBD-Infused Beverage

Many businesses these days are looking to dip their toes into the cannabis industry.  Companies, both small and big, see the major potential the cannabis industry has for its audience.  Cannabis is the fastest growing industry in the nation and businesses are giving it a chance.  As more states legalize recreational use, more and more businesses are jumping in on the bandwagon to cash in on their rewards.

As a matter of fact, some major corporations are starting to look towards cannabis as a means of a unique strategy for their business.  One such big corporation, Coca-Cola, is dabbling with the idea of producing…cannabis-infused drinks.

Coca-Cola is in talks with Aurora Cannabis (based in Vancouver, Canada) about producing cannabis-infused drinks for their audience.  Their strategy is to produce drinks infused with CBD in order to relieve pain, rather than infuse them with THC.  The infamous beverage company has been watching the cannabis drink market very closely these days.

This news comes as Canada prepares to legalize cannabis within their country, following US states that are legalizing for recreational use.  Canada has been adapting the ways paved through legal states in America.  The special partnership between Coca-Cola and Aurora would mark the first entry of a major manufacturer of non-alcoholic drinks into the market.

It is quite a PR miracle to see a major beverage company like Coca-Cola diving into the cannabis industry.  Not only is the industry paving the way for cannabis businesses, but also for other businesses as well.  Even though not much as been said about what the new drink will be, this is still a major step in the right direction for both companies.  Coca-Cola sees the benefit the cannabis industry has on its audience, so it only makes sense for them to work with Aurora Cannabis to push a unique drink.

In the end, Coca-Cola is one of many major corporations that will become 4/20 friendly in the near future.  As the cannabis industry continues to take off, other companies will utilize cannabis into their own business plans as well.
