JOLIET, IL, July 28, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to name Dale P. Layman, PhD a Lifetime Achiever. An accomplished listee, Dr. Layman celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Retired professor of human anatomy, physiology, medical terminology, and histology, as well as an author, speaker and human rights and social activist, Dr. Layman dedicated many years to the students of Joliet Junior College in Illinois. After 36 years teaching and accruing numerous degrees in multiple fields, he founded Robowatch as a sentinel organization that reports on the effects of robotic technologies in America. He became particularly concerned about swiftly advancing technologies after reading numerous scientific articles about robotics and how the dominance of organic life was being, or could one day become, threatened. Specifically, he started Robowatch in 2001, in shocked response to hearing this ominous prediction in an open lecture on neural implants by Kevin Warwick, Cyberneticist and Professor of the University of Reading, England: "The cyborgs will be running the show in the future. If you want to be a chimpanzee, remain a human being!"
Robowatch and Dr. Layman are an international human rights advocacy group that keep watch for the negative impacts that swiftly advancing technologies may bring, particularly to the job market. "I believe that in this hyper state of technology, and with such dependence placed on computers and robots, it is important for people to understand all the possible impacts of advancements in the field. With Robowatch, I help people stay informed about this fast-paced field," he explained.
Born to Pierre Andre Layman and Delphine Lucille (Lenke) Layman in Niles, Mich., Dr. Layman began a prolific academic career at Lake Michigan College, where he earned an Associate of Science in Life Science in 1968. He went on to receive a Bachelor of Science in Anthropology and Zoology with distinction at the University of Michigan in 1971, and served as a histological technician in the neuropathology department of the university's medical school. After studying such small tissue structures in detail, Dr. Layman went on to teach physiology at the University of Michigan, and earned a Master of Science in the field in 1974. After teaching at Lake Superior State University for one year, he went on to earn an Educational Specialist degree in physiology and health science from Ball State University in 1979. Dr. Layman later earned a PhD in health and safety studies from the University of Illinois in 1986. In 2003, he completed a Grand PhD in Medicine at the World Information Distributed University in Belgium. That same year he earned a PhD from the European Academy of Information and World Information Distributed University, where he holds a full professorship. That same year, he wrote the foreword to the book, "Concise Encyclopedia of Robotics," by Stan Gibilisco, published by McGraw-Hill. In this book, he coined and invented the phrase, "compu-think" - a compound meaning computer-like modes or ways of human thinking. In 2007, he retired from teaching to dedicate his efforts to Robowatch, just one of many anti-transhumanist intellectual groups that safeguard human civilization from potential ruin due to advanced technological growth. Dr. Layman presented oral testimony about Compu-Think and the rapidly growing, student-computer performance gap to the Illinois State Board of Education, the Illinois Community College Board, and the Illinois Board of Higher Education in reaction to House Resolution 304 - - Public Hearings on Adult Education (31 August 1999).
Dr. Layman gave radio interviews on CUTV News Radio on May 12th and May 19th, 2017. He has had three press releases distributed online by PR Newswire: The most recent, posted by Continental Who's Who in October 2016, was entitled "Dr. Dale Pierre Layman: Remember the Titanic: Call For An Anti-Robotic, Counter-Revolution." That same month the releases entitled, "Dr. Dale Layman, Grand PhD, is Recognized by the International Association of Who's Who" appeared online. Both releases also appeared on the digital signboard in New York City's Times Square. In March 2016, the National Association of Distinguished Professionals posted a release about him, and Worldwide Branding named "Robowatch Top Artificial Intelligence Watchdog Group" in 2016.
Dr. Layman was selected to appear in The Global 100 by the American Biographical Institute in 2011, and in 2005-2006, he was unanimously elected vice chairman of the Institutional Senate at Joliet Junior College.
Dr. Layman did a phone interview with Alan Piper which was published in Maxim magazine as "Unpopular Mechanics" (June, 2005). He advanced "The Bioethics Resolution" to the Illinois Community College Faculty Association, which passed by an overwhelming voice vote in 2004.
He was selected by the Grand Doctoral Committee (U.N.-affiliated) as "The First Grand Doctor of Philosophy in Medicine for the United States" in 2003. The committee wrote: "He was the first who has strictly formulated the global problem: From Homo Sapiens to Robo Sapiens, and he has grounded a danger of this potentially irreversible process to natural man" (Grand PhD, Vorontsov, Chairman, U.N. Grand Doctoral Committee).
In 2000, Dr. Layman was chosen as the only person in the world associated with a two-year college to appear in the Dedication Section of "Two Thousand Outstanding People of the Twentieth Century."
While at Joliet Junior College in 2000, he promoted and passed formal Professorial Ranking for all full-time instructors at Joliet Junior College. In 1994, he successfully initiated and passed The Faculty Ranking Initiative for All Public Community Instructors in the State of Illinois.
In 1990, Dr. Layman successfully campaigned to help save a threatened wetland in the Joliet, IL, area, resulting in the creation of Rock Run Preserve.
In earlier days, Dr. Layman won a Michigan Public Junior College Transfer Scholarship to the University of Michigan (1968), was the winner of 2nd Prize from the Lions International Peace Essay Contest (1967), was a Niles High School debater and narrator of the play, "Under Milkwood." He graduated with honors in 1966. At 13 years of age, he caught a prize largemouth bass at Brush Lake, and at age 8, he raised a record-large Cecropia moth. Both feats were reported by the Niles Daily Star.
Dr. Layman remains actively involved with several professional organizations in an effort to network with like-minded individuals and further his efforts. These include the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, the London Diplomatic Academy, and International Order of Fellowship (MOIF).

A TRUE GIFT OF WARNING FOR "SLEEPING" MANKIND:
Just a few days before this Updated Narrative is being published, Dr. Layman has become extremely worried by a terrifying article appearing in USA TODAY (25 July, 2017) - - "Company to install microchips in employees," Mary Bowerman, USA TODAY Network. Here is a brief excerpt:
"Welcome to the future?
A Wisconsin technology company is offering its employees microchip implants that can be used to scan into the building and purchase food at work. Whether or not to get a chip is up to the employee to decide.
..... The tiny chip, which uses RFID technology or Radio-Frequency Identification, can be implanted between the thumb and forefinger 'within seconds,' according to a statement from the company.
The company, which is based in River Falls, Wis., envisions the rice-sized micro chip allowing employees to easily pay for items, access the building and their computers all with a scan of their hand.
'We foresee the use of RFID technology to drive everything from making purchases in our office break room market, opening doors, use of copy machines, logging into our office computers, unlocking phones, sharing business cards, storing medical/health information, and used as payment at other RFID terminals ... Eventually, this technology will become standardized, allowing you to use this as your passport, public transit, all purchasing opportunities, etc.'
And while microchipping employees may sound like something out of a horror film, the company is partnering with Swedish company BioHax International, which already has many 'chipped' employees."
Dr. Layman is worried that this new, "casual-and-convenience" microchipping of employees is breaking through the Natural Skin Barrier, that separates the human body's internal environment, from the Outside World. As such, he so greatly fears, we are now unthinkingly laying the Future Groundwork for the appearance of Robo sapiens - - a competing robotic/cyborgean species that may eventually threaten the very survival of Homo sapiens, The Natural Family of Mankind!
