Olivine The Key to Reducing Carbon Emissions

While there are tons of variables and changes we can make in our daily habits the best solutions are ones that take the CO2 out of the environment for us and let humans interact as they previously were. In a recent Fast Company magazine article there's a non-profit in the Caribbean testing spreading a green sand like material on the sand that when the waves roll over it will start the process to reverse CO2 emissions.

We're excited for the trial and I'm looking into a potential donation to Project Vesta and encourage others to do their research as well.

Done at scale on beaches and in the shallow water on continental shelves, it could make a major difference. “If we spread olivine over 2% of the world’s shelf sea, then that will be enough to capture 100% of human emissions,” Green says.

Willem de Kooning Made Fun of Andy Warhol

At a dinner party at the end of the 1960's two of the worlds biggest artists had an interaction and well Willem de Kooning was not a fan of Andy to say the least.. He said while being intoxicated at a party: “You’re a killer of art, you’re a killer of beauty, and you’re even a killer of laughter,”


Warhol thought of art as a business not as de Kooning did. He told a New York reporter in 1969 that
“The new art is really a business,” “We want to sell shares of our company on the Wall Street stock market.”

Perhaps his thinking was what has changed and influenced art and it's capitalist approach since.

Would you buy Warhol branded linens and bed sheets today? Maybe Murakami will come out with them and Uniqlo and Muji will be the ones selling them.

Richart Ruddie Expert Witness for Online Defamation

As no stranger to online defamation running and advising for some of the top reputation management agencies in the world, I've also helped as an expert witness to showcase damages as a result of defamatory information that has been posted online that has harmed a plaintiff.

In the cases that I've worked on involving lawsuits based on material posed online that damaged the plaintiffs character and was then used to hurt their business and bottom line.

With my help I developed an overview of the damage caused as well as calculations and costs to repair. Now I regularly received inquiries for expert witness testimonials and write ups for legal cases around the country.

I've created a profile on Expert Pages as an online Defamation Expert and have contributed helpful content to their website.

Photos of Richart Ruddie

Few random photos to upload of myself (Richart Ruddie) ranging from volunteering at an orphanage in Costa Rica feeding hungry children who were delighted to have visitors and to play soccer and try out flappy bird on an iPhone.




Other miscellanous photos of family, friends in Las Vegas and California, a Cat, and screenshot from that time I was on a DJ radio station as the top donor for the fan giveaway with Jauz, Alison Wonderland, and in another DJ show I would be on the same show as Eric Prydz.
