I revealed in a recent blog post that the Smithsonian Magazine operates under an anti-gumption policy that prevents its staff from responding to independently verifiable information that 100 % proves it is publishing complete balderdash. Moreover, this, the official magazine of the Smithsonian – a national institution specialising in veracity – takes this line because the fallacious...  Read More

I recently had the pleasure of talking to the members of the Mobile, AL chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management. Prior to my presentation, during the networking opportunity I walked the room stopping at each table and asking whether they were ready to go back to work and empower change in their organization. At one of the tables I stopped at, I received the response “sure as long as...  Read More

Strategic planning is extremely important, but the way we plan, and the plan we create, do not provide the dynamic roadmap everyone in the organization needs in order to shape the best future possible. Today’s traditional strategic plan is a static plan. The plan exists as a document, either digital or printed, that is published in some way, shared with key employees, and then put in a file...  Read More

Woe unto the interim leader. Must be strategic. But may not be the one who sees the strategy through. Must build the organization. But may be building it for someone else. Must manage the operations. But unpopular edicts can be delayed until the permanent leader shows up. As an interim leader, expect to deal with open hostility and passive aggressive behavior on a regular basis. The secret to...  Read More

These questions were posed to John Scanzoni on his blog regarding his blog essay: “Morally Wrong, Acceptable or Right?” I post them here with - in my opinion - his evasive response… In a second (3 letters all together, the 3 rd : “A Response to Morally Confused Sociologists” is on my blog, since he did not allow my second letter to be seen, I thought the 3 rd would probably not be posted either)...  Read More

The 2 nd Note to John Scanzoni – addressing his blog piece entitled: “Morally Wrong, Acceptable, or Right?” John did not allow this to be posted on his blog; so I post it here. Hi again, John! This is a short note, but I will be posting a lengthier note when I complete composing the dang thing… Well gotta tell you that I did not expect you to answer my questions; you may think that you...  Read More

According to the World Health Organization, the death toll from Ebola has exceeded 4,500. There are at least another 9,191 cases that are probable, confirmed or suspected. I say “at least,” because this is based on last Friday’s WHO report, and the disease spreads like a wildfire and is notoriously underreported. The most-affected countries are in equatorial West Africa: Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria...  Read More

Every school child knows that the inscription on the iconic Liberty Bell says, “Proclaim liberty to all the land and all the inhabitants thereof.” Our country was founded on the idea of liberty and independence from the power of a distant tyrant. It was built on the belief that individuals had “unalienable Rights,” and that “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from...  Read More

In an earlier book review blog I pointed out the possibility of science fraud and negligent DNA analysis errors regarding the claims made by the author of a new best selling book that he has solved the case of Jack the Ripper. It seems I was right - at least in the very general sense - of there having been an analysis error of the DNA on a very particular shawl in question. In this...  Read More

Billionaire Peter Thiel: "We Don't Live In A Normal World; We Live Under A Power Law." By Ralph Benko When George Gilder, arguably the smartest man in the world, says, as he said to me over dinner recently in Washington, DC, that Peter Thiel is the smartest man in the world… pay attention. Fortune calls Thiel “perhaps America’s leading public intellectual today.” ( Not all agree ...  Read More

University, in which Arts (humanities) and Science are the main faculties, is more responsible than school in preparing you for the workforce and it or VET are required before jobs.

I thought having fanatical Darwinist groupies write nonsense about me being a conspiracy theorist was bad enough - particularly when it is they and not I that see conspiracies where there is zero evidence of them (Sutton 2014): 'Perhaps he simply had no choice but to give Matthew's book the silent treatment, due to the unwritten rules of conduct in practice among 19th century gentlemen of...  Read More

Carolus Linnaeus invented taxonomy or the system of classification of species that we use today. He was primarily a botanist and made many sketches of various kinds of plants in order to make comparisons of their structure. Gregor Mendel was a monk who bred garden peas. Primitive humans living as hunter-gathers needed no more intelligence or social structure than gorillas. What purpose in...  Read More

After writing a breasoning list, chapter and essay as in Breathsoning , take the additional steps of Nietzsche and Foucault and write arguments related to the topic that the essay reminds you of (where the essay is only pointing to these arguments), then think of ontologies containing these arguments and a computer program connecting these ontologies and write a new argument about the computer...  Read More

Call me a heretic if you will, but I do know for a fact that, ever since the great time when the intellectual Enlightenment movement of the 17th century shaped modern science and scholarship that institutions of veracious knowledge are supposed to weigh all knowledge on its merits, rather than judge it merely according to the status of the informant. And it is from that very enlightened cause, in...  Read More

Reality Reality is summarised by a computational idealist, that the mind, a computational instrument determines how we construct and deal with the world, whom however relies on other minds to construct his or her world (hence the reality paradox) and a computational realist, who claims the world is a set of pre-existent computers, and whom has no explanation for other phenomena that he cannot...  Read More

The Letter Below is my 3rd response to John Scanzoni's blog piece entitled: Morally Wrong, Acceptable or Right? You of course may see his piece on his blog; one of my replies is posted there; I do not believe the 2nd is posted as yet, but it was submitted about 3 or 4 days ago... This one has not yet been posted on John's blog... I will subsequently post my first two notes to John here on my...  Read More

How many times have you been sick and tried to get an appointment with your doctor, only to find out that he or she had no openings for the next three days? Or maybe you got sick over a weekend or in the middle of the night, when your doctor’s office was closed, and had to make your way to an emergency room or urgent care clinic, where you then had to wait for hours before a physician could see...  Read More

Eureka is a wonderful feeling. It’s what people like Archimedes say after they have “found it”. It’s what follows “Aha Moments” of creative insight. These happen when people put together things that had not been together before and make those having those moments feel smarter and better about themselves. The strongest leaders and best communicators inspire others by creating the context for those...  Read More

I attended a short (eight hours; some may be 3 – 4 days, or more in duration) Catholic Retreat last Saturday [now 2 Saturday’s past]; it was a first for me. Although the retreat confirmed what I thought they would be i.e., personally edifying, but not the “medicine” needed to fix the Church and the wide culture (it ire’s my extremely modestly humble cousin to an extreme that I utter such arrogant...  Read More

Water has always been a valuable commodity in the Southwest, but with prolonged drought in places such as California, it’s now like gold. Most Americans are accustomed to seeing water come out when they turn on their tap. But for some people in California’s San Joaquin Valley, it’s been four months since they’ve had running water. That’s been the case for people who live in the small Tulare...  Read More

Wouldn't it be nice if buyers volunteered to pay businesses a fair price for what they are offered? Seems like a silly idea! But recent business experiences and research suggest we may just be stuck in the mind-set of the last century. "Modern" mass-market commerce is a race to the bottom that assumes and appeals to the worst in people. Sellers set prices as high as they think they can to...  Read More

The Hidden Key 2014 Election: Kevin Brady Jolts Paul Ryan By Ralph Benko Most political eyes now are turned to whether the Republicans will take, or the Democrats hold, a Senate majority. Meanwhile what may be a comparably important election will be conducted, probably next month, mostly out of the public eye. This is the race between Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Tx) and Rep Paul Ryan (R-Wi) for...  Read More

The "Cat Ears" represent 10 breasonings for each sentence, "actor", etc. on the day and the line between them represents an protected undeveloped breasoning for each sentence's object.

What do you do when you’re desperate to score victories in the midterm elections, but you haven’t had a fresh idea since Caesar wore short pants? That’s the position the Republicans find themselves in. They’re attempting to hide their dearth of ideas by fanning fears of terrorism and pestilence, especially among their ignorant base. They’re playing on the uninformed anxieties of some voters...  Read More

The League of Nerds interviewed me a couple of weeks ago in Teesside (England) following my talk - based on findings in my new book ( Sutton 2014 ) - on the newly discovered facts that I believe establish beyond rational doubt that neither Darwin nor Wallace can any longer be considered independent originators of natural selection.

Authors of several websites seem weirdly flummoxed by their inability to know how to find the earliest known publication of the phrase: 'it is what it is'. Without answers we humans often seek to fill the knowledge gaps with myths, Hence, o ne has it that the phrase has its roots in USA Black (1960's) culture.
