Autonomous vehicles (AVs) are in the news a lot lately. From Tesla’s Autopilot to Uber’s driverless cars, we’re really starting to see an upswing in the credibility of this tech. I can see how this technology would greatly benefit the trucking industry—if not necessarily truckers. And, I can definitely get behind Uber’s use of the … Continue reading Autonomous Vehicles: Convenience or All-time Thief of Fun?
This “one-a-week” posting makes me feel as though I’m neglecting you. But, needs must when you have bills to pay. Today, we’re going to talk about fitness and well being. This isn’t a “tips,” “tricks,” or “diet” post. Perish the thought. This is sharing what works for me and how I found it. Think of … Continue reading Find What Works for You
Hello there! I’ve been meaning to bring you some fun new something or other, but my time and attention have been elsewhere. Also, I couldn’t really decide what I wanted to bring to your attention. Then, I came across Body Labs. According to its website, the Manhattan-based company was founded in 2013 with the goal … Continue reading Your Perfectly Personalized Avatar
Hello there, guys and dolls! We’re about to get into a topic I really didn’t want to get into. Or, maybe it’s a topic I thought I’d never have to get into. Either way, here we are, about to discuss vaccines. And anti-vaxxers, of course. And how the anti-vaccination movement is contributing to an upswing … Continue reading The No-Win Situation
Look at us! All together again, chatting about things and stuff. Well, one-way chatting. Which is actually less chatting than—What? Oh, ok. Dave says I’m rambling. Today, we’re going to talk about Star Trek—sort of. We’re going to talk about a piece of tech on Star Trek called the Tricorder. You do remember the Tricorder, … Continue reading Home Healthcare just got a Little More Exciting
It's a little exposition-dense. A kink I'll work out over the drafts to come. For now, since it's been so long and I know you need something to live on—talking to you Dave—enjoy this bit of fiction from The Shill and the Purblind. My mother was a slave, Idun Verdandi recited. My mother tried to … Continue reading The Shill and the Purblind
I know, I know. It’s been days. But, you can relax now. I’m here. Oh, and Dave, of course. Dave is always here. Today we (but mostly I) are going to discuss the fun, exciting, and controversial topic of genetic manipulation! I’ll hold for applause. Specifically, we’re talking about genome editing. The first quarter of … Continue reading Genome Editing Advancements
Welcome back! Good to see ya, nice to meet'cha, let's dive right in! Today’s topic is solely focused on suspicion and how it can affect your social life and mental processes. Of course, it’s only reasonable that I explain how this topic popped into my head.
I’ve previously written a couple of blog posts on tech advancements aimed at aiding movement inhibited individuals. This is another one of those, focused singularly on Brain-Machine Interface (BMI, also called Brain-Computer Interface, BCI), which we’ve touched on before.
Swelling Hour Swelling hour, ebbing light Dusk of night—deep and deeper still, Stealing light as May’s shifting breeze Steals sound: still and deep and silent.
