Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The Earth is warming rapidly as a result of human-caused emissions. So what should humanity do about it? One of the more controversial suggestions is that we should simply prevent so much heat reaching Earth in the first place. Proponents of so-called solar geoengineering, such as tech billionaire Bill Gates, say techniques intended to block a portion of the solar radiation reaching the planet ought to be considered. Gates himself has put his money where his mouth is, backing a Harvard University experiment to look at the effect of spraying particles into the stratosphere to, in theory, create a global cooling effect. It sounds very much like the plot of one science fiction movie in particular—namely Bong Joon-ho’s 2013 film Snowpiercer , in which scientists release aerosols into the sky in a desperate bid to stop rampant global warming. Let’s just say the plan doesn’t work out as intended. Now, concerned that science … [Read more...] about Solar Geoengineering: Why Bill Gates Wants It, But These Experts Want To Stop It

Memphis basketball coach Penny Hardaway cut loose on the media Thursday night. The Tigers lost to SMU 70-62, and the head coach at Memphis apparently had enough of the media asking him questions he didn’t like amid roster issues.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin There was no mystery. No secrets, surprises or unknowns. Play after painful play, the Green Bay Packers knew what was coming when they faced the San Francisco 49ers in the 2019 NFC Championship Game. Still, it didn't matter. The 49ers ran for a remarkable 285 yards on 42 carries that day (6.8 average) and routed Green Bay, 37-20, in a game that was decided by halftime. Raheem Mostert, who went undrafted and was playing with his seventh NFL team, set a 49ers’ record with 220 rushing yards and had four rushing touchdowns. Nothing takes away a team’s manhood quite like running the ball down their collective throats. And when San Francisco ran the ball a remarkable 84.0% of the time that day, they won the physical and mental game. “It’s not like we didn’t know what they were going to try to do,” Packers coach Matt LaFleur said that day. “We knew exactly what they were going to try to do.” Fast forward 24 months and the … [Read more...] about Bully Ball?

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Everyone wants to do well at work. We all want to perform at our best, growing and achieving in our careers. However, according to Katie Rasmussen, a researcher at West Virginia University, over 40% of the population turns this desire for growth into a career-limiting characteristic - a characteristic that can begin in childhood. While there’s nothing wrong with most career ambitions, safely expressed and pursued, a certain personality trait can stop you in your tracks. It’s a trait that can torpedo your career, crush your relationships and bring a steady stream of struggle and frustration. In fact, Harvard Business Review says that this quality might be the cause of increased mental illness , brooding and anxiety. And it’s not just because of the pandemic. When the desire for achievement morphs into the pursuit of perfection, there ’s a dangerous self-deception at work. Namely, that perfection is attainable. … [Read more...] about This Personality Trait Will Torpedo Your Career: 3 Simple Ways To Stop What’s Not Working
SEREMBAN: A discussion will be held among the authorities on the possibility of building a special area in Jalan Temiang-Pantai for motorists to stop to enjoy the view. Nilai OCPD Supt Mohd Fazley Ab Rahman said the discussion will involve the local council and the Public Works Department. He said many motorists stop along the stretch, especially during sunrise, to take photographs. “This is dangerous and should be stopped,” he said yesterday. A video clip which went viral showed about 30 cars parked along the emergency lane at the recently opened Jalan Temiang-Pantai stretch. The group, believed to be members of a car club, had apparently parked along the stretch to take photographs along the scenic route. The recording was believed to have been made at around 6.30pm on Saturday. Meanwhile, Seremban OCPD Asst Comm Nanda Maarof reminded motorists that they are not allowed to park along the emergency lane on any road unless there is a pressing need to do so. “Stopping … [Read more...] about Motorists warned against emergency lane stop for photo op
After you email an expensive proposal to your price-sensitive client, or leave a message for your boss request for vacation time during the busy season, or ask for a raise or promotion (or both) after your last performance review , you have to wait patiently to hear back. And if you're anything like I am, waiting for information patiently is a challenge. No news is nothing --nothing other than time and space for us to make up a story. And those stories tend to make us feel anxious. What kinds of stories? A story about how the client to whom we sent the proposal is deciding to hire someone else. A story about how our boss is getting ready to deny our vacation request.A story about how we're never going to get the raise or promotion we want. Not happy stories -- that's for sure. So why do we do this to ourselves? According to neurologist Robert Burton, MD, author of Where Science and Story Meet , "because we are compelled to make stories, we are … [Read more...] about Always Imagining the Worst Possible Outcome?

As President Biden meets today with private sector leaders to discuss ways to amp up cybersecurity efforts , a different new initiative should come front and center. Last week, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced a new public-private partnership called the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC). The JCDC will align government with (mostly tech) company efforts to address key cybersecurity issues , the first of which is ransomware. While the JCDC sounds like a great idea, it isn't needed in this case. The government could easily stop most ransomware. This administration gets high marks for recruiting talented cybersecurity leaders. Chris Inglis is the White House's national cyber director and Jen Easterly is the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). Both are highly capable, but their talents are better focused elsewhere. Ransomware is an economic attack that uses technical means. Treating it as a technical … [Read more...] about The Legal Fix Biden’s Cybersecurity Taskforce Can Do Now to Throttle Hacking
It’s no secret that crime in Chicago has reached levels not seen in decades. Crime statistics released by the Chicago Police Department (CPD) for October 2021 show significant increases in incidents of serious crime compared to the same time in 2020, along with double-digit declines in arrest numbers. A local news source notes that last year, Chicago reported more homicides than any other city in the United States. A further worrying new development in the Windy City is “ flash mob robbery crews ” – two or three carloads of people traveling to commit “quick bursts” of robberies and other crimes while roving city streets, apparently “motivated by the thrill of scaring and hurting people.” Desperate times call for desperate measures. Chicago Alderman Michele Smith (D-43) is promoting “WhistleSTOP,” a program dating back to the 1970s. The rules of this crime-fighting approach, according to Smith , are first, to get a loud whistle, preferably the kind used in sports or camping. … [Read more...] about Chicago Alderman Thinks Blowing Something Will Stop Violent Crime
