Well hello! I’m so glad you’re here. A version of this article also appeared in the It’s Not Just You newsletter. Sign up to get a new edition every Saturday. After another week of searing headlines about just about everything—global climate issues, the unfurling tragedies in Afghanistan, in Louisiana and parts south, the pandemic—all of it left me sleepless and sad and cynical. The latter is the most corrosive emotion I can think of right now, and when I’m not that ditch, it’s getting harder to imagine what our future looks like as the sands continue to sink and shift beneath our ...

Originated thousands of years ago, acupuncture is a TCM (traditional Chinese medicine). It's based on the premise that a disturbance or a blockage in the flow of life energy of the body, can cause health issues. What acupuncturists do is insert needles that are very thin. These needles are inserted on specific acupuncture points all over the body in order to restore the flow of body energy, to balance its energy, and also to stimulate healing to promote relaxation. According to traditional Chinese medicine, on the human body, there are around 1000 acupuncture points, each one of them lying on an invisible channel of ...

In Deuteronomy 31, the passing of leadership from Moses to Joshua begins. There's a lot of repetition of the prophecy of the conquest of the promised land, followed by apostasy and Yahweh temporarily abandoning the people. Then there's a lot of business about writing down the law -- again, not clear if it's the whole of the law as given in Exodus, Leviticus and Deuteronomy, or some excerpt. Finally, God has Moses write a song, but we don't get to read the lyrics until the next chapter. Unfortunately, the music is not supplied, and we don't know much about the music of that culture.According to Wikipedia:The earliest synago...

ndra Costanzo This work describes the design, implementation, and validation of a wireless sensor network for predictive maintenance and remote monitoring in metal-rich, electromagnetically harsh environments. Energy is provided wirelessly at 2.45 GHz employing a system of three co-located active antennas designed with a conformal shape such that it can power, on-demand, sensor nodes located in non-line-of-sight (NLOS) and difficult-to-reach positions. This allows for eliminating the periodic battery replacement of the customized sensor nodes, which are designed to be compact, low-power, and robust. A measurement campa...

When he was two years old, Ben stopped seeing out of his left eye. His mother took him to the doctor and soon discovered he had retinal cancer in both eyes. After chemotherapy and radiation failed, surgeons removed both his eyes. For Ben, vision was gone forever. But by the time he was seven years old, he had devised a technique for decoding the world around him: he clicked with his mouth and listened for the returning echoes. This method enabled Ben to determine the locations of open doorways, people, parked cars, garbage cans, and so on. He was echolocating: bouncing his sound waves off objects in the environment and cat...

Goin’ Greyhound by Dave Bradley (Kindle/eReader version here) Jaden leapt from the Greyhound into fetid coach-stop air that felt as heavy as a steam room but without the scent of eucalytpus oil despite this being the Northern Territory. He dashed to the gents and en route doused his ready-pasted toothbrush in tepid water from the nearest tap, and shuffled into a gap at the rankest-smelling trough for a well-earned pee, chewing on the toothbrush as he went. “You must be German,” a fellow backpacker one splash along asserted, “only a German would urinate and clean their teeth at the same time.” ...

Goin’ Greyhound by Dave Bradley (Kindle/eReader version here) Jaden leapt from the Greyhound into a Turkish bath, doused his toothbrush in tepid water from the nearest tap, and shuffled into place at the rankest smelling trough for a well-earned pee, chewing on the toothbrush as he went. “You must be German,” a fellow backpacker one splash along asserted, “only a German would urinate and clean their teeth at the same time.” The accent was Scandi…Norwegian perhaps. “Gngnsh,” chewed Jaden. “Aah, British, yes, a Brit would probably do that too.” It was the briefest ...

By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — When the Patriots drafted Damien Harris in the third round, lots of people in New England were excited to see what the running back could do in the NFL. After one of the most productive careers in Alabama history, the expectations were high. Unfortunately for those folks, that opportunity never really came. Buried on the depth chart behind Sony Michel, Rex Burkhead, and James White, Harris barely saw the field as a rookie. He ultimately got four carries for 12 yards in what essentially served as a redshirt season. Now a year later, though, an injury to Michel opened t...
