Relics of The Accelerated Age

By p.d.adams, published on Mar 3, 2012

She goes into theJungle, finds a thick-walled containment structure with a hefty piece of metal inscribed Batter needs the right fluff to blow it out of the park.

She thinks. So, the rainforest fetes a new siren for winners staying in the hunt.

Once a holding ground for wily veterans and cagy upstarts, a unanimous nannie structure of choice when the old ionization blackouts came, turning an old storage site into a belly of an echo--the recant of a society that settles for only the crimes at hand with spent fuel robots.

A bygone path leads up, and in its perpetual sleepiness,... (more)

Candor of Robot Rancor

By p.d.adams, published on Feb 26, 2012

So, she believes, they are bent on the idea of staying on solid ground intellectually. Let it be. Their high and mighty algorithms create go-for-glory blips, making a distinguishable existence the only way to experience life (can simple blips allow any escape from the silliness of their stillness?)

Yes, that's the way she would create her little realities--independent entities that are actually dependent on each other for their uniqueness.

The simple taking of responsibility for an unknown future is surely bravery, right? It would make her brave. It could be her true contribution... (more)

The Last Engine

By p.d.adams, published on Feb 24, 2012

It starts. There is a probability across the spectrum that smaller singularities exist under the history books beneath shiny office windows.

Myriads of biosensor bots of high solubility and low toxicity amass in arrays of eiganstates across the architecture. They disguise themselves as companions in a friendly competition.

The willingness is there to wait in silent urgency, and then to lead forward into the mist as distant church bells call across tall grass toward a foggy future.

The warning was against fame.

It puts stagnation aside and searches... (more)

What Should We Do About Doubt?

By Thom Hunter, published on Jan 11, 2012

Lord, I crawled across the barrenness to you with my empty cup uncertain in asking for any small drop of refreshment. If only I had known you better, I'd have come running with a bucket. -- Nancy Spielberg

I doubt if there is anyone who does not on occasion doubt. At least himself. I know the illustration: we don’t think about whether a chair is going to hold us up; we just sit. But I also know that sometimes we just miss the chair altogether and we’re on the floor in pain and it is just there: a chair. A mocking chair.

Rather than admit to doubt, some of us parade in false... (more)

Stretch your body, stretch your life

By akagc, published on Dec 20, 2011

...to even grasp, I personally think it's the mindset under which it's approached that determines the strength of character and one's determination to reach new heights that makes the difference.

At the end of the day, it's not forced upon anybody, so there is not reason to hate it. Choose to do it or don't, but don't hate on it because it doesn't work as well for you as it does for others. It has made a huge impact in my daily life both during and after training. I'm not a Yogi. I'm very far from it actually, but I practice it twice a month because it's necessary for my health.

How to Lose Weight Quickly, Smartly, and Safely

By Cousin of Jesus, published on Nov 30, 2011

...a miracle that they are alive. Type AB's benefit more from a diet rich in organic brown rice rather than wheat AND lots of vegetables high in phytochemicals and the more alkaline producing fruits.Eating foods you are allergic to can contribute to not only weight gain but also life threatening health problems. For example: A preschooler was given a peanut butter and jelly sandwich at school to eat and died within minutes of consumption. Not even the parents knew the preschooler had a serious food allergy to peanut butter.My point being is that knowledge is power AND it is a good idea to... (more)

What is ABA?

By Alethea, published on Nov 15, 2011

Eating eight gluten-free chocolate chip muffins for breakfast. Flicking a cigarette butt out your car window. Giving a breath mint to your boyfriend. Peeling a banana. Crying after watching Titanic for the 38th time. Jogging around the block in your favorite spandex outfit for 25 minutes. Do any of these things share a commonality? They do in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis, also known as ABA.

ABA is the science of applying the principles of learning and behavior in order to achieve socially significant change. If you have not figured it out yet, the aforementioned are... (more)

Daylight Saving Time Ends Nov. 6th

By Angie Alaniz, published on Nov 4, 2011

...drivers to travel home from work and school in daylight, which is much safer than driving in darkness. Crime rate is lower as most of us do our routine tasks typically before evening falls. Still while all of this sounds good and beneficial to us the downside is that it does affect our health. It affects our sleeping patterns causing our bodies stress.

According to a group of scientists in Germany at the “Somerset Medical Center, Sleep for Life,” just published a new study in Current Biology , say that it’s not that easy for us to adjust our internal body clocks. It... (more)

Memory, Software, Hardware & Evolution

By M H Ahssan, published on Nov 1, 2011

As a neurologist trying to diagnose Alzheimer’s, amongst the shortcuts one uses are tests for short term memory. One gives a patient unrelated few phrases to remember, like three red roses, one white envelope, 1700 Sansom Street. One repeats this once again, asking the patient to repeat and remember it and then distracts the patient with irrelevant small talk for a few minutes. Then the demand is made for the patient to repeat the series in correct order without prompting or hints.

Alzheimer’s patients in the early phase fail to repeat correctly. It is not that memory is the sine qua... (more)
