Monitor The Strategic Trends | Perspective is our most valuable asset! Details are easily acquired when you know which questions are relevant. | Trends are everything! We need to understand the trends underway to make intelligent decisions.

Monitoring strategic trends is imperative to see the patterns that are fabric of our lives.  Trends are woven into the culture and society of humanity, ultimately pointing to the design of the Designer.  The following trends are suite of evolving observations, rooted in Scripture, that evidence our immersion in the End of what is known as Time.

Note: read links under each trend from the bottom up (older links at the bottom; source material for why the trend matter is at the bottom of trend).

Isn’t Seeing Believing? Fake Images by Dean Packwood 
The subject of Fake News (as Ron Matsen discussed in the January 2017 Personal Update) has been in the headlines over the last few months as though it’s some newly discovered phenomenon. Fake news and reports have been around for thousands of years, and many of us get caught out from time to time with fake news, but what about fake images? Isn’t seeing believing?
Images and videos are usually regarded as the most concrete, honest evidence of experiences and events we cannot witness ourselves. This is often the case in court, in the news, in scientific research, and in our daily lives. Words, we know, can lie. But that trust makes it all the more shocking — and serious — when images lie to us, too.

On December 24, 1968, the astronauts of Apollo 8 took a gorgeous shot of the “earth rise” as came from the dark side of the moon.[10] It was the first photo of our planet from the perspective of another planetary body. Although a color photo was taken moments later, In 2013 NASA produced a computer-generated re-creation of the first photo, in full color. But ever since, people have been passing the re-creation around as an authentic photo.
