  • 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

  • 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
  • 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

  • Welcome to Our Real Matrix

    by Tom Arant
    Did you know that we (and all life) are unknowingly imprisoned? That what you think is Reality has little to do with the truth? In these ways, our existence is like the virtual reality in the movie, The Matrix. The differences are more overwhelming, including that our Real Matrix emerged through biological processes without any intention nor direction (i.e., no sentient machines), and that there is no escape through taking a Red Pill. Welcome to Our Real Matrix proves all this using accept... more

  • Economics for a Healthy Planet

    by Iain Miller
    Scientists have told us we are destroying the planet. Most of us get it, we have even declared a climate change emergency. So why aren’t we treating it like an emergency?

Economic growth over the past century is unprecedented, but the majority of the increased prosperity has been enjoyed by a tiny minority of billionaires, while most of us feel fa... more
