Mr. Tankersley was born with an insatiable curiosity. He became
embroiled in the day to day struggles to build a career in
Engineering and provide for the needs of his family. Now the
children are all grown and gone, he is retired and free to know
for the sake of knowing and to explore those things that he
dreamed of as a boy. In recognition of his heritage from his
grandfather Tankersley, Tank has also become politically active
and has volunteered to serve as the Harris County, Texas,
Democratic Precinct 0678 Chair (2008-2010), Election Judge, Harris
County, Texas, Grand Jury (served Feb-Apr, 2011), and to
participate in a National Health Study conducted by Baylor
University. Mr. Tankersley is also a Sustaining Member of the
Harris County Democratic Party (2008 to present) and a Sustaining
Member of the Spring Branch Democrats Club (2008 to present). The
flames of curiosity still burns brightly. Tank fully supports the
Energy Policy as presented in the 2008 Democratic Party Platform
and provides the leadership to search for the cutting edge
technology to provide Sustainability Engineered while striving to
protect the environment and providing employment for the people of
the United States of America.
EDUCATION: "Clearly and beyond all doubt, the only
purpose and reason for life is to learn. All living beings,
plant or animal, that ever was, is, or ever will be throughout
the universe must adapt or perish as with the dinosaur. Yet it
is the fate of humanity, above all, to have the consciousness to
understand and give reason to life."

A Guide to Online Schools
From K-12 to college, explore online learning modes, hear from experts, and read how Khan Academy and other free resources help students get ahead.
- The Khan Academy
is a must for all students from K through 12 and on through
college. Anyone who is serious about his or her educations
must keep the Khan Academy at fingertips for reference if
for no other reason. Teachers will find the Khan Academy an
outstanding tutorial and teaching tool. Parents will be able
to use the lessons of the Khan Academy to help their
children achieve in educations and for that matter, will
find that the lessons will teach themselves as well.
- Find A School:
was created by Mike Viron while still a student in college.
Mike a good friend of CHTANK and serves on the staff of DEEPSPACE. Here one
can find an Internet link to all the Colleges and
Universities of the world.
- w3schools This is the most complete web page tutorial on the market. It is the "horses mouth", so to speak, from W3C, itself and it is free, too. If you want to learn HTML and all of it's extensions the right way, go to this school. It is worthwhile for even the experienced author. However, the Khan Academy has has a very good instructor led Tutorial.
- The Open Course
Ware Consortium is a growing list of many Schools,
Colleges, and Universities which offer open (free or almost
free) course ware. The educational opportunities are
enormous. The site is extensive, so be sure to review it all
for best results.

the youth of the world.

especially since the Governor of Texas and his Tea Party
cronies in the Legislator have cut funding to the Texas
public schools. There is no excuse for not giving our kids a
proper education, be it in public schools, charter schools,
private schools or home schooling.
Open Courseware is especially important for those who
wish to study the science and technology of today.

here as a learning tool in philosophy. Although it is not
affiliated with an College or University, it does represent
the philosophic thinking of some of our best minds. One may
not agree with their ideas but, regardless, it does open
some avenues of understanding.

DELIBERATIONS ON CURRENT ISSUES AND POLITICS
This section will be fluid and may have elements that change often
As the offspring of true American Pioneering stock, Mr. Tankersley was brought up with the ideal of neighbor helping neighbor. In Pioneer Oklahoma, after the land rush of 1889, each new land owner, including Mr. Tankersley's grandfather, helped his neighbor build his home, harvest his crops, and care for the children. No one person could do it alone. It is still that way today; it still takes a Village to raise a child. For the love of mankind it takes us all to contribute what cannot be bought with all the riches in the world. After all, aren't we still pioneers?
|THOUGHTS ON SEX:|
Upon looking back at my life I come up with these thoughts on sex, sexuality, sexual preference, and marriage: The opinions to be presented in this article are those of Charles H.Tankersley and do not reflect any political or religious doctrine other than that of his own. Sex, sexuality, sexual preference, and marriage has become has become a major political, religious, and social issue in the United States. Mr.Tankersley will attempt to examine t
he issue with an open, objective and factually mind and leave the subjective and emotional prejudices behind.
|CONSIDERING THE SECOND AMENDMENT|
I shall enter into the gun discussion with my interpretation of the second amendment. I am not a lawyer, I am, however, a naturally born citizen of the United States of America who has served in the Untied States of America during time of war, who attended college on the GI Bill of Rights, who has voted in all national elections and most local elections, who has served on both civil juries and Grand Juries, and who is been active as a citizen for 85 years retiring from the Petrochemical Industry as a Principle Mechanical Designer from a major Engineering Corporation at age 65. I fell I have the right and authority to read, understand and intemperate the Articles of The Constitution of the United Sates of America as one who was and still is sworn to protect from all enemies, foreign of domestic. So, here is how I understand the Second Amendment of our Constitution:
|ROBOTS AND SUCH Drones & Robots are the Future. They are with us now! Our lives right now are becoming both complicated and complemented by drones and robots. Let's make this perfectly clear, a
drone a type of flying robot that, in general, has a remote control operator. Generally speaking a robot is self contained and autonomous. We can and must take steps to control how the drones and robots are used. Already, the
military is using both guided and autonomous drones and robots to hunt down and kill our enemies. Because the drones and robots function with new technology called Artificial Intelligence (Acronym AI) for the future, one question will be, who controls the drones and robots and who is the enemy to be killed or destroyed?|
- Saving our earth:
What is Sustainability Engineering or Engineering for
Center for Sustainable Engineering gives a complete
description of Sustainability Engineering. This is the
definition in a nutshell: "Sustainable
Engineering may be defined as engineering for human
development that meets the needs of the present without
compromising the ability of future generations to meet their
own needs (Bruntland Commission, 1987)."
Sustainability Engineered Projects are a freely available
voluntary effort to provide alternatives to the high cost
fossil fuels that pollute the atmosphere, water, and earth,
to fight global warming, and within the guidelines of the Center for Sustainable
Combined Heating And Power Systems - a Sustainability
Project. Chaps is created and organized in the spirit and
concept of Agro-Biogenics, Inc. under the laws and
regulations of the United States of America to fulfill the
needs of the people and communities for safe, economical,
environmentally friendly, source of energy produced from
non-food stuff biomass and waste organics normally deposited
into sewers and landfills.
