by Amogh SukhthankarCovid-19 has no doubt drastically changed the way we behave; now, we are more careful when washing our hands, more diligent about wearing masks, and more cautious when interacting with people indoors and outdoors. Our minds have also changed in response to the pandemic, trying to grapple with overwhelming emotions and anxiety. What hasn’t changed is how we view the roles of psychology and neurobiology during the pandemic. Both of these academic fields can explain what went well and what went poo... more
by Richard BotelhoIn the early 20th century, discoveries in quantum mechanics proved Consciousness is the ground of all being. This finding contradicted scientific materialism, which posited matter as foundational; instead, matter results from Mind. Moreover, Consciousness was antecedently linked to a First Mind, the universe a mental and spiritual construction of a Divine Being. The Full Extent expands on these quantum truths and considers their spiritual implications, positioning the human future.

Heywood does this by introducing facts and posing questions for which he then proffers a variety of answers, allowing ... more
by Bruce GlassAs 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 Speciesby 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

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

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. To solve these problems, ... more

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
