Flavor Intensity?

No Gravatar

Ah, yes, if it’s a day ending in “y”, the odds are you’ll find me at St. Elmo’s, my favorite coffee place. Where I have my own mug that is constantly being refilled. And, the aromas- they are just glorious.  (And, those few tourists, who break the rules and use a cell phone,  get attacked for creating halfalogue terror.”)

The first mentor?

No Gravatar

Many of you long-time readers know that I try to acquire lessons from the Tora (the Bible) that I can use in everyday life- and in my business situations. Well, in my religion, we were cycling through the portion that deals with Yaakov (Jacob), Lavan (Laban), and the 20+ years of their “association”.

Overload?

No Gravatar

Each day we get more and more information. And, we worry how useful it is. In less than 15 years, the amount of information we assimilate has quintupled. So, of course, we feel the effects of overload. But, do we really?

Tonight

No Gravatar

Tonight is the first night of Chanuka. That means it is the 25th of Kislev. (It is also the day our family traditionally celebrated my grandfather’s birthday- who only knew his birthday was on Chanuka.)  The holiday of Chanuka is NOT the same as Christmas, even though the Christians adopted the 25th for their celebration.

It’s more than choosing well…

No Gravatar

So we spoke last week about the value of conscientiousness in having our marital state helping our careers.  But, what helps us stay married?  Science says —kindness and generosity.

Look who graduates?

No Gravatar

I have railed against the destruction of our educational standards, since the athletes on teams rarely graduate- and those that do rarely graduate on time. The good thing is that at least the costs for four of their years (if they graduate) are covered. So, they won’t be accruing debt as they fail to achieve a proper education. (No, this does not mean they all don’t learn. Amazingly, this year’s MIT football team was without a loss- yet, and they are in the football championships.)

It’s in our genes!

No Gravatar

So, years ago Drs. Settle, Dawes, Christakis, and Fowler reported (The Journal of Politics) that there is a gene associated with liberal thought.  It seems that folks with liberal dispositions  also seek out new and novel experiences.  Those same folks have the 7R variant of the dopamine receptor (G4).  This research came after Bouchard & McGueCloninger, Svrakic, & Przybeck, among others determined that social conservatism is also inherited.

So, we’ve got out toys – 3D printers.   And, many companies are using them, as I’ve reported.  But, now, the 3D printer has gone into orbit.
