TECHNOLOGY REVIEW: The Doomsday Argument is the idea that we can estimate the total number of humans that will ever exist, given the number that have lived so far. This in turn tells us how likely it is…

I Write Like

I write Like is a Web site that takes a sample of one's writing, does an analysis of the writing style and reports whose writing style is closest to of many of the greatest historical and contemporary writers.

I submitted a couple of samples and both times the site reported I Write Like Isaac Asimov, very flattering indeed. Check out who You Write Like!

Yin and Yang...



Yin and yang are actually complementary, not opposing, forces, interacting to form a whole greater than either separate part; in effect, a dynamic system. Everything has both yin and yang aspects, (for instance shadow cannot exist without light). Either of the two major aspects may manifest more strongly in a particular object, depending on the criterion of the observation. The…

Six-Legged Lizards...



Researchers can learn a lot from a lizard scampering across the hot desert sand or an insect crawling atop a pile of plant litter.

OK let me confess

I am a researcher, not because I am doing a college thesis or a gov job, but because I have a need to know. The problem is that the things we have been called and are called do not fully disclose a remedy to our plight. Not as the overall group we are associated with, not as the various camps within the group. Thus we have no rights or privileges other than what we are allowed by the powers that be (over us as a group).

OK, putting all the recent marbles on the table and keeping it…

AFRO Flash Fiction

Flash Fiction is gaining popularity at the speed of light on the Internet. FF  is more than simply creating a story with a beginning, middle and end in less than 1000 words. There should be a plot twist and moral. This is a thin slice from the thick juicy part of  a much bigger story;…

Posted by Joe Pledger on October 8, 2018 at 2:20am 0 Comments

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
