This revised post has additional resources to bring out your inner curiosity. All three interlock, one for all and all for one, and all that good stuff. I’m stumped as to why, as an industry, we aren’t more curious about the world around us.I suppose it will take bigger brains that mine to figure out why people just accept what they are told or what they believe as final word, regardless of facts and data. Sometimes it’s HR leadership, or business leadership or even clients who are demanding we implement these myths as truths, our role is not to sit back and blindly smile and nod but to speak up and plant the seeds to thought independence.Recent use of a special anti-freeze has reduced that, but we don’t actually know if the anti-freeze gets to enough places. The people who developed the anti-freeze published some 2D pictures that look good, but we don’t know how selectively these were chosen, or how much worse is the typical cryonics freezing process. (Yes, future folk undo even very complex brain scrabbling, but don’t count on it.) And given my usual medical skepticism, I gotta be skeptical here too.Though cryonics has been practiced for forty years, its techniques have improved only slowly; its few customers can only induce a tiny research effort.The average global temperature is…impossible to measure and harder to calculate than you might think.While GISS and RSS and UAH and GHCN might be a confusing jumble of letters to most people, there are people pushing for global taxes, global courts and individual carbon budgets based on these data sets. I’m going to assume that most (if not all) of you are aware of Penguin Random House’s digital publishing program/imprints, which were introduced a few years ago now? A few months ago, my editor there asked if I might be interested in writing one, and I thought it sounded like fun. Speare may be holding one of the worst: He’s cursed with the need to commit sins, and if he misses his daily quota, there’s hell to pay—literally.
For the music fan without that kind of sensory overload, a lot of music news can pass by without being seen.Ardeth’s hotter than a Las Vegas sidewalk on the Fourth of July, but she’s one sin Speare has to resist.The dismembered corpses are piling up, unimaginable evil lurks in the shadows, and if this odd couple hopes to beat the odds, Speare needs to keep his hands off Ardeth, and his head in the game. (And of course if civilization doesn’t die, if someone in the future cares enough to bother, if you are your brain activity, etc.) This is probably enough brain info: the spatial shape and location of each brain cell, including the long skinny parts that stick out to touch other cells, and two dozen chemical densities (at the skinny part scale) to help identify cell and connection types.Actually, it is probably enough to just get 95% of the connections right, and a half dozen chemical densities.“Every year we try to find that delicate balance of talent at Rocklahoma, and the lineup we’ve put together for 2017 will not disappoint,” commented Joe Litvag, executive producer of Rocklahoma.
