This is nothing new. A lot of pre-existing literature explains the biomechanics in great depth, but often getting lost in anatomical diagrams and lengthy paragraphs understood by any sports scientist but not every running enthusiast. Here’s a simplified illustrative overview.
Admittedly, the possibility of painting my future family portrait to feature as many healthy and happy children I can possibly bear doesn’t immediately shy me away. These are my thoughts on genetic-testing company 23AndMe being awarded a patent for technology with the capability to pre-design the traits of a baby.
Does freedom actually sing in the freelancing business? It’s a feast-or-famine industry. We’re either taking on too much work or can’t find work at all. After surviving on my own for two weeks, here’s a written recap of the risks and rewards of being my own manager during this month of dedicated freelancing.
Dmitry Mendeleev – the man behind chemistry’s alphabet that is commonly referred to as the Periodic Table. What many young students don’t read in their science textbooks is about how this chemist was also the mastermind behind Russian standard vodka.
Take the time to skim the lean side of a cereal box and a lot of unfamiliar terms will pop up. Most of these names are artificial additives used for taste, crunchiness, and preservation and not increased nutritional value. While we shouldn’t eat breakfast cereals, commercials say otherwise. But marketing cannot change the truth in the science.
I, along with 50 million other Americans, lack the ability to digest lactose to some degree. While most of us drank glasses of whole milk as carefree children, age got the best of us and we’ve become disabled. But humans were never meant to have a tolerance according to geneticists. Learn how the milk evolution began.
The golden rule of thumb when it comes to building digital learning platforms is to never take out the teacher. In a fast-moving world where things are easily automated, this unfortunately has become more like a goal rather than a rule. As opposed to replacing traditional interactivity in classrooms we should try to enhance them.
In 1953, scientists James D. Watson and Francis Crick published a one-page paper arguing the structure of DNA was a twisted ladder. However, our first visual understanding of our genetic blueprint was not illustrated by the scientists who proposed it but by Odile, the wife of Francis.
Did you know Aztecs used the intestinal linings of cats to create balloons that were later twisted into different shapes? Times have changed, eh? Maybe you should think twice about hanging them at your child’s next birthday party. (I’m glad I didn’t have them around for my 28th birthday yesterday).
Los Angeles tends to forget it was once a desert where wild animals roamed, a former Native American village, and a Spanish/Mexican colonial settlement. These are panoramas the city no longer resembles. Because it is assertively man-made, you have to look pretty hard for gems and facts to appreciate.
This relaunch was all about keeping my world as honest and transparent of who I am. Spending a little more time documenting and showing and less time talking, follow my work and writings by dropping in.
Making digital products often doesn’t afford us time for meaningful research or ‘field work’. Instead of relying on marketers and Google searches, I’m bombarding Russia to design on the ground where tradition outweighs creativity.
