BSB 118     J. Morris Hicks     (10-26-17) 
Alive and Well and Working on ARCH

Back in  June, I sent out a BSB entitled, I almost died last week! Now, after not posting a blog for 24 days (a record), some may think that I went ahead and died after all.

I didn't. I have just been very busy--moving to a new residence, speaking at two venues in Canada and working on ARCH, whose birthday is approaching next month.

As for "not dying," I am about to finish up my six month regimen of taking blood thinners and I have also added more daily exercise. For example, when golfing, I now use a Sunday bag (with five clubs) and walk the course. 

As for moving to a new residence, we have downsized to a waterfront townhouse overlooking Sandy Hook Bay, the Verrazano Bridge and the World Trade Center--all visible in this sunset photo from the deck off of our kitchen.

As for ARCH, we added a working database earlier this year and can now professionally "demo" how ARCH can directly engage with any size workforce population--from two hundred to two million. Our original vision for ARCH was documented in this concise document that I prepared almost one year ago:  One-page ARCH Vision Document

The vision hasn't changed much since then, but we are now better prepared to launch this powerful product for a visionary CEO who wants to create a win-win-win: for the enterprise, the health of its associates and for our fragile ecosystem that gives us life. For more info, visit

The Bottom Line . Ending today with a little good news about our fragile environment. The Arctic did not go "ice-free" last month--as predicted by Dr. Peter Wadhams and others. But, it's just a matter of time before it does--unless some kind of perceived emergency jolts us all into action real soon.


Looking for Opportunities to Speak. Since 2016, my research and writing has been focused primarily on the sustainability of our ecosystem, our civilization and our future as as a species. I call it the "most important topic in the history of humanity." 

After all, what could possibly be more important to us humans than our survival as a species?

The current title of my standard presentation:

Food. Health. Planet. Our Future as a Species.

Upcoming Talks: Upstate New York: Buffalo, Canandaigua and Rochester in November, Fort Myers, FL ( VegFest), in January and at the in Honolulu and Maui in April. To view all 64 slides in my latest presentation,  click here
