When the king of Judea was Herod, and the services at the Temple at Jerusalem were still in force, there was a couple that was childless. The husband was a priest of the temple and his wife was descended from the priestly bloodline of Aaron also. They lived in good standing with the Lord. When it was the husband’s turn for service in the temple, he went into the temple to burn incense, while...  Read More

Widely considered "the most popular podcast ever," season one of “Serial” "tells the story of Hae Min Lee, a high school student who was murdered by strangulation 15 years ago; her body was found in a shallow grave at a large Baltimore park, and her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, was arrested and convicted." In both specific instances and in terms of the larger arc of the narrative, the show provides...  Read More

As Xmas approaches, I learned today that my first academic journal article on Darwin's and Wallace's science fraud has passed expert peer review and will be published very shortly. Following the positive reception of my paper The Hi-tech Detection of Charles Darwin’s and Alfred Wallace’s Great Science Fraud, at the 2014 British Society of Criminology Conference, I was invited by the editor...  Read More

When the elephants fight, the grass suffers (African proverb). Don’t pick a fight with the elephants of your industry. Don’t play in the field where they are fighting. You don’t need the elephants to lose for you to win. You just need to avoid getting trampled. And you need to think through five essentials: Conditions, Customers, Competitors, Collaborators, Capabilities. Elke Goversten has done...  Read More

Censure Obama and Move On: Impeachment Would Only Damage Republicans by Ralph Benko There has been much consternation expressed about President Obama’s extralegal actions, especially suspending deportation of certain classes of undocumented aliens. Impeachment legally and politically would be completely unwarranted. There are other ways for the GOP to impose consequences. The president’s...  Read More

In the 11th-hour, $1.1-trillion spending bill that passed the Senate Saturday night is a provision literally written by Citibank lobbyists. The big Wall Street bank has not only penned a letter to Santa Claus, it has drafted its own generous answer: a Santa clause in the spending package. It’s nothing short of a giveaway to the banking industry. The language in the bill eviscerates provisions of...  Read More

Boxing club when I was young, Broken nose pre-ten. The constant undercurrent of violence: In language, in stance, in actual threat. Skinheads when I fifteen, Attacking what they perceived as difference, Concussion: attempted murder. Leaving the locus of the memory, I always have the radar for hassle Ever-vigilant, And still harbouring the same fears. My body betrays me now, Attacking...  Read More

It cannot be measured in pounds, dollars or euros, Nor is it win, lose or draw. It is the smile when you are ill, Soothing words when anxiety chokes, Simple yet profound kindnesses, Not to judge, But to support. I am fortunate to have someone of worth in my life I never expected nor engineered it, How could I? And everyday is a day of worth. Yes, it is not measured in huge gestures, ...  Read More

It is hard to keep walking in a dead man's shoes, That man that kept me motivated when all had deserted, A man that life had battered and bruised, A landscape we both inhabited until his untimely end. I no longer have Nick, here. His words and my often faulty memory, Are etched on my hard wiring I still hear his questioning, His interrogation of my very being, And laughter, And poetry ...  Read More

Sex differences in risk seeking behaviour, emergency hospital admissions, and mortality are well documented. Males are more likely to be admitted to an emergency department after accidential injuries, more likely to be admitted with a sporting injury, and more likely to be involved in a fatal road traffic collision. However, little is known about sex differences in idiotic risk taking behaviour....  Read More

Major productions should have 50 As in each of: - soundtrack - video - sales - marketing If a PhD student wrote 15 As to and from the lecturer per semester, resulting in just over 200 As in 3.5 years, then he or she could rebreason the As for the 50 As above. Online advertisers often omit the As, but are urged to have a 250 breasoning A for each of the required 50 As in good faith. Aphors...  Read More

We all run into roadblocks. Sometimes the difference between success and failure comes down to the ability to adapt, adjust and create leverage where none seems to exist. This starts with your attitude to roadblocks. “Normal” people see them as part of everyday existence. “Victims” think roadblocks are put up to stymie them. But the most successful view roadblocks merely as problems to be solved...  Read More

Successful innovators are the people who see a demand before it arises and develop the technology required to meet it. Certain demands may seem to arise on a whim, as part of some inscrutable cultural shift. But other demands are inevitable; we can see them coming. They develop as a result of irreversible and linear changes: the shifting landscape, the growing population. These are examples of...  Read More

This has been a very troubling last couple of weeks for me. I thought that we had progressed as a society beyond the point where we were stereotyping individuals based on our views of the world. Along with the rest of the world we watched the events unfold in reaction to New York, Ferguson, Cleveland and Phoenix. I was following a thread on Facebook in which a fellow member of the National...  Read More

Proliferation of Tragedy The death of Michael Brown death, as that of Trayvon Martin's, may have been tragic - but differ from the death's of Christopher Lane's (remember he was shot and killed, because some teens were bored, and thought shooting Lane would add a bit of zest to the tedium of their uneventful lives') in this regard: Lane was not involved in any behavior that could be construed...  Read More

Repeat: We believe in Darwin the one true second-to-be-first-Originator. We believe his true claim to have independently discovered the theory of natural selection. We reject the Devil-in-the-detail-dis-confirming evidence and all its works. The heretical newly discovered facts shall not lead us into skeptical temptation . Darwin's Claim and Subsequent Promise to all...  Read More

The Wall Street Journal recently ran a piece by Stuart Isacoff on Beethoven's "Diabelli Variations." In it, Isacoff explains that "Its genesis can be traced to 1819, when Anton Diabelli, one of Beethoven’s principal publishers, sent his own undistinguished waltz melody to every important composer he could find in Austria, requesting a variation on it from each. "At first, Beethoven...  Read More

It’s that time of year again: time to put up the outdoor Christmas lights. In my neighborhood, the diehards have theirs up right after the turkey and trimmings have been put away on Thanksgiving. I managed to get a modest string of lights up a week ago, which is earlier than I usually do. But I’ve noticed that this past weekend seems to be when about half the lights seem to go up. It’s kind of do...  Read More

Practical Humility, practical Virtue As one having the pretention to write about "humility" in a somewhat abstract manner, it may be that such a pretentious act may be surpassed by citing conduct which accords with the soul so disposed. My first inclination regarding such an endeavor - and one which I would utilize, were I not so damnably arrogant - would be to solicit the opinion of an...  Read More

Knowledge Contamination Timeline of Newly Discovered ( Sutton 2014 ) Known Evidence of Matthew's (1831) Influence Upon Charles Darwin via Robert Chambers For the past 154 years Darwin hoodwinked the world by claiming that no naturalist known to him had read Patrick Matthew's (1831) prior publication of the full hypothesis of natural selection. Big Data research proved him wrong. In fact, four...  Read More
