This was released in Fall 2009, and if feels out of date already! Since I posted Version 3.0 in December 2008, I figured that getting this out there wouldn’t be a bad idea.
Did You Know? (Version 3.0)

Turn Off the Lights for Your Health
Back in August, I wrote about light pollution. I can even still remember the night sky that caused me to write it. Yesterday, a blog post appeared on the Clampham Institute website discussing the detrimental links between artificial light and cancer (hattip to: The Point). Apparently, in the same article in the New Yorker that… Continue reading Turn Off the Lights for Your Health
Even Dumb (or Bad) Movies Can Make You Think
In his review of I Am Legend, Todd Hertz says: It’s an interesting direction for a movie about the impact of scientific advancement. So what is it saying about science and God? That scientific advances foolishly allow man to play God? Or that science is comparable to that fast car capable of good or evil,… Continue reading Even Dumb (or Bad) Movies Can Make You Think
Will Racism Return?
An interesting article at the New York Times discusses the rising specter of racism and prejudice based on genetics. The writer points out some blog postings and comments that are disturbing. That being said, there is something to be said about self-imposed homogeneity, especially in business…failure. I don’t want to see organizations forced to accept… Continue reading Will Racism Return?
The Quiet (some say silenced) Side of Anthopogenic Climate Change
KLTV had an interesting segment on one of their news shows recently about anthropogenic global warming. I wish I could embed it in this post, but they make it rather difficult, so here is the link. Hat Tip to: NewsBusters.org
The Information Superhighway? Bah, Humbug!
It is SO much MORE! Michael Wesch of Kansas State University created a little video, Information R/evolution, that is spreading through out the web. The phrase “information superhighway” should be tossed out, for as Mr. Wesch points out, the information is not, and must not be, so constrained. hattip to: Duncan Riley @ TechCrunch/span> Plus,… Continue reading The Information Superhighway? Bah, Humbug!
Oil going bye-bye?
Once thing that I didn’t mention in my post, Anthropogenic Climate Change Theory Versus Logic, is the over-the-top screaming that is going on in regards to climate change and alternative energy sources. This makes reasonable discussion almost impossible. In the attempt to (too) quickly get off of petroleum based fuels, ethanol has been getting a… Continue reading Oil going bye-bye?
Anthropogenic Climate Change Theory Versus Logic
Dr. S. Fred Singer (Professor Emeritus, Environmental Sciences, University of Virginia) recently outlined the logical flaws being espoused by those who speak of global warming (which is in error, as the recent snowfall in South Africa shows, and thus should be called, “global climate change”) as being caused by man (i.e., anthropogenic). Part of the… Continue reading Anthropogenic Climate Change Theory Versus Logic
Turn off the lights!
The last few nights, while waiting for the dog to finish his last bit of business before going to bed, I’ve been looking up into the sky, staring at the starts. They’re beautiful. I grew up in the SF Bay Area, and the only time I saw a true plethora of stars, I was camping.… Continue reading Turn off the lights!
