  • The Tree of Life & Origin of Species

    by Philip Bruce Heywood
    More a reference tool than a bedside read, this is nonetheless a very readable work. Heywood examines the existing explanations of the origin of the universe against a backdrop of the first chapters of the Bible— the creation accounts of Genesis— and skillfully shows the scientific facts underlying what many in scientific and educational fields have written off as mere fable. Heywood does this by introducing facts and posing questions for which he then proffers a variety of answers, allowing ... more
  • The Anthropocene Epoch: When Humans Changed the World

    by Bruce Glass
    As we hear more and more about climate change, pollution, and species extinction, some people may wonder how we got here. Some may wonder what all the fuss is really about. Some may even wonder if Donald Trump was correct when he declared that “global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing noncompetitive”—that it is nothing more than a hoax. In The Anthropocene Epoch, we will examine how humankind has altered the character of our home—planet Earth—over ... more

  • Homo Electric: How Coronavirus, Social Media and Climate Change Are Accelerating Evolution of a Dynamic New Human Species

    by Steve Nelson

    Electricity is driving human evolution. Just as controlling fire and using tools were major evolutionary developments in the Stone Age, so too is harnessing electricity and its myriad applications. New 21st century evolutionary thinking supports the author's daring proposition that we are evolving beyond Homo sapiens to become a new species of human, Homo electric. Not sometime in the future, but right now. While for 200,000 years humans could only interact face-to-face,... more

  • Lion Shaped Mountain: A Fable as Told Through the Eyes of Wild Chimpanzees

    by Andrew R. Halloran
    In a remote corner of West Africa, in a place that only the locals know about, the world of a young chimpanzee is changed forever by forces beyond his control.

  • How to Alleviate Digital Transformation Debt Post-COVID-19

    by Dr. Setrag Khoshafian

    We are amid a digital revolution with unprecedented innovations. The pandemic has accelerated the requirements for "Digital Transformation." Organizations need to adopt and transform to survive and hopefully thrive.

     

    At the core of digitization there is very much an underlying principle of "debt." It comes originally from what Is called "technical debt." Simply, technical debt "reflects the implied cost of additional rework caused by choosing an easy solution now instead of using... more

  • A Hidden Legacy: The Life and Work of Esther Zimmer Lederberg

    by Thomas E. Schindler
    In the mid-20th century, microbiologist Esther Zimmer Lederberg and her then-husband, Joshua Lederberg, made a series of remarkable discoveries that contributed to the biochemical understanding of the gene. Together, they laid the foundation for molecular biology and the field of bacterial genetics. In 1958, he alone was awarded the Nobel Prize for their work. Esther's ingenuity was largely ignored and undervalued by the Nobel committee and has continued to be obscured by historians of science. ... more
  • Journal of the Plague Year 20/20: from Pax Americana to the Apocalypse

    by Michelle Christides
    Since the Stone Age, Plague, War, Conquest, and Famine have been known to force a new social cognition of truth. Our country is being torn apart by our inability to see the meaning in the giant jig-saw puzzle that is the Chaos of our Time. During the first world confinement in history, the internet has made possible a whole new economic system, just as the Pandemic stopped us from running off the cliff of climate change because of the religious fervor of consumerism.

  • Fixing Food: An FDA Insider Unravels the Myths and the Solutions

    by Richard Williams
    FIXING FOOD tells the stories of what really happens inside the FDA. Through these stories, I explain why one out of every six Americans gets food poisoning every year (CDC). In fact, every year, at least for the last decade, FDA cites this same number to justify their budget request to Congress. It also discusses why two thirds of us are overweight or obese and why, by 2030, despite FDA’s nutrition labeling, one out of every two Americans is expected to be obese.[1] To solve these problems, ... more

  • After Meat: The Case for an Amazing, Meat-Free World

    by Karthik Sekar, PhD
    Animals make for terrible technology. The technological use of animals--making food, drugs, clothing, and cosmetics out of animal material--will cease. A cow is a terrible bioreactor; it takes months to grow fully and wastes over 90% of what’s fed to it. We can’t do much better because the limitation comes from the physics of chemical diffusion and blood circulation. No amount of engineering will redeem cow technology. We’re better off developing replacement technology such as microbial fermenta... more
  • Our National Monuments: America's Hidden Gems

    by QT Luong

    With the stroke of a pen, the president of the United States can proclaim a national monument. The Antiquities Act of 1906 was enacted to provide an expedited means to protect areas of natural or cultural significance. Since then, 16 presidents have used the Act to preserve some of America' most treasured public lands and waters. In 2017, an unprecedented executive order was issued questioning these designations by calling for the review of 27 national monuments across 11 states and two o... more
