Creative Thinking: this is the bulk of design, if you dont have creative thinking, you wont be able to design because its like building a house out of lego only to just make a straight line. this is basically our brains finding the answers that you yourself find the problem to.

Lateral Thinking: The arm of design in basic terms. it's the process of finding a creative solution in a dominant idea of a situation. often known as identifying and understanding the dominant idea is the main basis for how this can be implemented into the creative thinking part of everything.

Analogies: "The similarity between two things" as stated in the book; meaning to find two objects of a value in different aspects and trying to find a way to merge them to make a new invention. thus for making an object with aspects of one thing and aspects of another like the ink press; taking aspects of a coin punch and a wine press. 

Brainstorming: The process of gathering in a group or staying solo, whilst trying to conjure thoughts that could lead to a good idea which can lead to the possibility of an invention.

Sketching and Doodling: This is where your creativity comes in to play. as the name implies, this is where you think up, sketch, and doodle, and it ends up into something amazing or something plain stupid. <<It's really useful for making blueprints.>>

Synectics: When you pretend to be something you are not aswell as someone you are not so you are able to find a new perspective on a situation/problem. this is basically changing everything you know and love to see through another's eyes.

In aboriginal societies, there were many technological innovations over time. Some of these innovations were widespread, others were fairly isolated. 

The most obvious explanation to this is the environment. Chances are, a society in the prairies wouldn't need sun goggles or sleds, and a society in the arctic wouldn't need farming tools. In addition, some societies might experience isolated hardships that other societies in a region wouldn't experience which would drive the innovation of different technologies. For example, if there are multiple societies living along a river, and one of the societies lives in a lower area that floods more often than other areas along the same river, they would eventually develop technology that nobody else would have a use for. Sometimes different societies would develop multiple solutions to the same problem. They might both be equally effective so neither of the technologies would spread beyond the societies that created them.

In contrast, some technologies might be useful no matter where you live, like tools and weapons made of materials that can have a very sharp edge, like obsidian or flint. You can find widespread use of these materials all over the Americas. These tools are effective at killing living things (hunting and warfare), which was pretty important everywhere,

There probably were cases where similar technologies were invented in different places separately from eachother, but it's likely that the most effective technologies would spread through contact and trade. If a trader found a tool or technology from another culture that was more effective than what they used, the trader would probably spread knowledge of that tool around.

Falcon Lake 1967-  On May 20, 1967 Stefan Michalak claims to have seen two cigar-shaped objects hovering about 45 meters away. One descending and landing. He approaches it believing its some U.S.military experimental craft. As he approaches he smells sulfur and sketched the aircraft. Stefan says he noticed a panel that contained a grid of holes. He was hit in the chest by a blast of air or gas that pushed him set his shirt and hat on fire. After he made his way back to the motel feeling sick and vomiting. He was later treated at a hospital for burns to his chest and stomach that later turned into raised sores on a grid-like pattern.

-The story is very interesting, but seems very unlikely. The story states that he sketched the aircraft and they article shows a picture of the sketch. If he was knocked over by a blast of hot air or gas that set his clothes on fire, why did not the sketch burn? And why did he just so happen to have paper and pen on him?

 Nipawin 1933-  Over the course of a week in 1933, citizens of Nipawin, Saskatchewan reported some strange lights in the sky. One night, three townies drove toward the lights, and later claimed that they saw a large, oval-shaped craft with a dozen uniformed occupants inside, busily trying to repair their ship. It returned a few nights later to find the ship was gone  with six large, square prints left in the ground.

Shag Harbour 1967-  One night, on October 4, 1967 in Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia, multiple witnesses claimed to see four mysterious orange lights in the sky heading toward the harbour, followed by a mysterious whistling sound and a loud splash. Multiple witnesses claimed to see a UFO crash into the water, but subsequent rescue efforts were unable to find any debris. Early reports suspected involvement from the United States or Russian authorities, but no conclusive evidence was ever found.

'Embracing Contradiction in Cell Phone Policies with Youth' Paragraph 1

"The first group panics about “sexting,” cyber-bullying, and the rampant spread of misinformation."  

I agree with this statement because children have easy access to the internet and can research anything they want. this is bad because they are trying to grow up to quickly and their innocence is taken. Bullying is definitely easier for some behind a screen.

Creative Thinking; creative thinking comes without training and practice. Its more of the saying "thinking outside the box" in which you look in different perspectives to solve a problem or challenge. not everyone can creative think so Edward De Bono created the terms vertical thing and lateral thinking to tell between logical and ctreative thinking.

Lateral Thinking: people with creative thinking can devolope a technique called dominat idea. An dominant idea is the action and thoughts of a person. theres also a theory called Chaos theory, it occurs when a little difference at the begining can make a big change in it as time goes on.

 

Analogies: A comparison of two things in a sittuation. you can find analogies in the structures of plants and human skeleton. analogies give you the visuals with your design work.

 

Brainstorming: brainstorming is thinking about mulitply ideas or a couple people exchanging ideas. everyone brainstorms every day but some people will have little success due too, afriad of looking foolishs or they dont take it seriously. there are some rules to brainstorming,

  • work in a group of at least three or four people.
  • One person must take note, recording of emerging ideas is critical for allowing revisiting of earlier inspirtion.
  • Set the problem, and make sure that each person understands it.
  • Set short time limits on each problem.
  • Be spontaneous, be outrageous, be imaginative.
  • listen to other peoples ieads, and build on them.
  • Do not criticize, evaluate, or even elsborlate, this is very important.
  • go for quantity to ensure quality.
  • evaluate only after your ideation session has ended.

Synectics:

Sketching and doodling;

Latereal thinking: creative thinking is part of it but there is also the Chaos Theory is all natural systems. there was a time not long ago when more powerful computers would allow to measure and track weather.

Analogies: is the different between to or more unlikely things. They could be made of to different matereal and they would look different to each other.

Brainstorming: when you have an idea and try to come up with more ideas when you have one or more people.

Synectics: when your use to doing the same thing over and over like how basketball player buys shoes normaly and someone new don't kniow what type to get. 

Sketching and Doodling: coming up with an idea and sketching it down before somebody else steals your idea.
