Yep. right on. The woman in the picture below is exactly who and what terrifies the #MAGA mobs and the GOP. That woman is the TIME magazine computationally generated image of merging of races in America. She is our future and it scares them. I think she is beautiful. pic.twitter.com/2TtyvhMxdM

Star Wars: A Long Time Ago, in a Hive Far Far Away?
Here is my modest theory: the GFFA’s ‘humans’ are in fact sentient hive insects, organized around a single queen, a handful of fertile males, and a horde of infertile female soldiers.  For parsimony’s sake, let’s assume that Force sensitivity in this species is possessed by fertile males and females, and that male actors used to represent non-Force sensitive characters are actually representing infertile females.

By now, the looming dangers of climate change are clear to anyone who’s been paying attention, covered extensively in both academic literature and the popular press. But what about solutions?

According to most theories, alcohol-related aggression is caused by changes in the prefrontal cortex. However, there is a lack of substantial neuroimaging evidence to substantiate these ideas. In this study, Denson and his team recruited fifty healthy young men.

Alan Kay's answer to What advice would Alan Kay give a curious individual to improve their ability to think and learn? Is there a place to see his library — every book, person, and research he has studied? - Quora
Frank Oppenheimer — the creator of the San Francisco Exploratorium, a physicist, and the brother of Robert — once told me that when they first set it up he got many complaints from some of the sponsors and donors. They wanted and expected “a science museum” and they complained that what he’d made was a chaos of 2000 children running around and breaking things!

He said to them “You don’t understand. The door to Science is to realize that ‘the world is not as it seems’. We’ve made 500 different hands-on exhibits that show this, and we figure that 2000 kids bumping around 500 exhibits will produce matchups so that a particular kid and a particular exhibit will trigger off the deep hit that ‘the world is not as it seems’. Many children will never be the same after this, and they are ready to step through the door into Science.”

This parable works in the large. A particular “great book” may not match up to a particular curious learner. I advocate reading lots of books, and to get fluent enough in reading to also read books that don’t match up, or sometimes are even mediocre. Some of this overhead will pay off later as one changes and grows. A good library with a few thousand books is a kind of “exploratorium” for readers.

Abraham Lincoln's Secret Visits to Slaves
In the mid-1930s, the Federal Writers’ Project interviewed thousands of former slaves, some of whom claimed the president came to their plantations disguised as a beggar or a peddler, telling them they’d soon be free.

My professional opinion as a blockchain researcher: I don’t see the point (yet)
I've spent the last 15 months researching the implications and possibilities of blockchains and related "distributed trust technologies" from a business and societal point of view. Sadly, I have to say that I don't quite get the hype, as much as I'd love to believe in a technological revolution that democratises the world economy. (NOTE: I've…

"The seeming haplessness of YouTube in the face of its own algorithms, then, is not accidental. It has become conventional wisdom that YouTube has lost control of its platform to its algorithms, which, for instance, automatically restrict any and all LGBTQ+ content but encourage people to watch Nazi and alt-right content and create child-traumatizing clickbait. But rather than a loss of control, these outcomes prove YouTube is functioning as intended. By design, YouTube has little direct control over what its platform shows to any particular viewer compared with, say, NBC. Despite making some shows, YouTube’s primary business is not producing or even curating content; it is brokering as many matches as possible between content, viewers, and advertisers."

Back From Yet Another Globetrotting Adventure, Indiana Jones Checks His Mail And Discovers That His Bid For Tenure Has Been Denied
To summarize, the committee fails to recognize any indication that Dr. Jones is even remotely proficient when it comes to archaeological scholarship and practice. His aptitude as an instructor is questionable at best, his conduct while abroad is positively deplorable, and his behavior on campus is minimally better. Marshall College has a reputation to uphold. I need not say more.
