Interesting news about our doggies…

You all know I love my Ben. But you probably also know I’m very fond of all dogs, and it may not surprise you that I’m interested in their history. Which is why I was very pleased to come across an article that sheds more light on the development from wolves to pooches. For one thing, I had always... Sign in to see full entry.

Bennie, Geordie and Toby…

Whatever happens in our darkening world – theirs is a happy one, and being happy themselves they return and spread it, creating a tiny puddle of light and happiness in our lives as well… Bennie has full use of his four legs again and is allowed to run after the ball once more; but the ball is tossed...

A bit of science fun today…

Fun? It is, in a way – but it’s also scary as hell! Remember when I admitted recently I was wrong when I said we will always be able to control Artificial Intelligence (AI) in spite of Stephen Hawking’s prediction it might do us in? Well, I have sort of been snooping around in a corner of science... Sign in to see full entry.

Today just one thought...

A new Phrenology?

On one of my recent forays into the dangerous jungle of AI, just to get some sense of what lurks there, I encountered something really scary, and thought I might as well tell you about it. ( More scary stuff? As if I don’t scare you enough with you-know-what, LOL…) Some of you may remember having... Sign in to see full entry.

Let’s take a peek at Peek…

What you’ll get to read below is very funny – but it addresses a serious issue! It hilariously illuminates one of the serious ills of our age… (And in my other post today you’ll get to see it in all its stark ugliness!) You may recall that I have occasionally and in passing told you that I have a... Sign in to see full entry.

What is happening at our Universities?

Actually, whatever it is, it’s been going on for quite some time now… When I was a denizen of the academic world, I thought of the university as the one and quite possibly only place where the ideal of ‘Freedom of Expression’ was fully realized. That may have been the case once, but hasn’t been for... Sign in to see full entry.

A country self-destructs…

At least its current government is on the course of doing so, headed by what is by now Europe ’s most-hated politician, Angela Merkel, whose policies are threatening all of Europe. But, to be fair, she’s merely the cutting edge of droves of politicians in Germany as well as the rest of western... Sign in to see full entry.

Equality under the law?…

One of the absolutely basic, virtually sacred, principles of any civilized democratic society is the doctrine that all are equal before the law, which is why Iustitia even in ancient Rome was often depicted wearing a blindfold; and by the same token, the law is equal for all. It does not require a... Sign in to see full entry.

I was wrong…

I know it’s infuriating – I’m usually right, since I tend to talk mostly about things I really know and understand. I also know that may not be entirely fair, LOL, but I can’t help it! Of course people have told me I’m wrong, but that means nothing – unless they show me, it’s just hot air. But at... Sign in to see full entry.
