1. Understand as exactly as possible present situation/conditions. 2. Visualize as comprehensively as possible desired state/outcome of innovations including potential societal repercussions. 3. Seek simplest pathway to connect 1 and 2.
Areas David Smith is Knowledgeable in:
Large group behavior modification primarily based on reordering of perceptual integration/priority reordering.
Techniques David Smith Uses:
In general three basic steps. A. What do you wish to achieve. B. Where are you now. C. How do you get from B to A. All of the foregoing involve the gathering, analysis and integration of physical and behavioral information related to each of the three foregoing steps.
David Smith's Problem Solving Skills:
Effective as teacher, educator, communicator, problem solving analysis
David Smith's Problem Solving Experience:
I was one of approximately six individuals who initiated aquatic safety innovations in North AMerica. In 1980 approx. 9000 died annually in water related accidents in the US and Canada. This toll is now reduced by almost 50%. Basic to the fatality downturn is modification of behavior/perceptions of half the poulation of North America relative to aquatic hazards and defenses. My Ph.D. dissertation was written to explain the techniques employed in this effort.
From my teens I have been trigued by the purported motions of what are commonly labeled unidentified flying objects. I have studied numerous photos and videos of these anamolous craft, primarily in their discodial lifting body form. From this analysisI have attempted to design propulsive mechanisms which duplicate the objects' motion. My work has been sufficiently successful to involve efforts at obtaining a patent over the last six years.
For 28 years I have worked as a legal expert for plaintiff and defense in swimming/boating related ltigation. Quite frequently the cases given me involve dated/incomplete information and records from which I am asked to make a cogent analysis of the behavior of accident participants as well as the forensic material/phsical explaination/interpritation of available tangeable evidence. This requires integrating behavioral components with physical evidence. My analysis is then subject to the strictist form of "peer review" by adverse experts and jury testing in its strongest form.
