SINGING THE PRAISES OF THINGS ELECTRIC

Posted by Daniel S. on Tuesday, April 18, 2023, In : Evaluation 

FIRST, let’s establish that I’m not blind lover of things electronic or digital, including AIs. I personally think that like nuclear power plants, we’ve a lot to learn about the downsides and side effects of these commonly extolled human endeavors. Still, I admit to a particular and equally peculiar character propensity I call “Toad’s Wild Ride.” I am attracted to anything and everything new, shiny and, alas, that includes things electronic and digital, including AIs like ChatGPT,...

UFOs?

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, February 13, 2023, In : books 

WITH three of four objects shot down flying over the USA/Canada of which three currently are as yet, by definition Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs, public fervor over something that many have come to not only welcome, dread or at least assume will soon happen, the wait to hear the UFOs origin(s) is hot, hot, hot. Will they be truly unidentifiable in terms of not being of terrestrial origin, or will they prove to be DARPA experiments, lost high school projects or some new kind of social ad...

QUANTUM, QUANTUM!

Posted by Daniel S. on Wednesday, February 8, 2023, In : books 

JUST read an article by BBC — https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-64492456 — suggesting a breakthrough in quantum computing, namely parallel quantum computing had occurred, this time on the actuality rather than simply theoretical level, taking advantage of quantum spookiness. Currently, accuracy has been a limiting factor in quantum computing. Linking two or more quantum computers using quantum spookiness would result not only in more processing power, but also the use of parall...

THE STARS WERE OUT THIS AFTERNOON

Posted by Daniel S. on Friday, August 12, 2022, In : books and movies 

OKAY, so the stars are out 24/7, they’re just hidden by the sun in the afternoon. Except for OUR star, the sun which is exactly the opposite, which is glory-blazing in the afternoon and hidden at night. At night my fav stars are The Seven Sisters, Cassiopeia (the “W” constellation), and Hanaiakamalama (the Southern Cross), not to forget Polaris (Alpha Ursae Minoris), the “pole” star of the Northern Hemisphere, or Polaris Australis (Sigma Octantis), the Southern “pole” star.


But, ...

LOOKING UP

Posted by Daniel S. on Monday, January 10, 2022, In : books and movies 

Earlier today, I had the pleasure of watching a Netflix film about William Shatner aka Captain Kirk of the Starship Enterprise, actually going briefly into space aboard Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin capsule. What struck me was the hindsight he shared with so many former astronauts, about his reaction to seeing the Earth as the fragile “blue marble” it is, traveling at breakneck speed through the dark cosmos. The response is typically so deeply emotional, it makes me think of a new form of spi...

A LITTLE LESS SALT, A BIT MORE FLAVOR

Posted by Daniel S. on Saturday, October 9, 2021, In : books 

FOOD (and cooking) is something everyone, including me, can appreciate. Where do I go for the latest and best food and cooking suggestions? Three places: (1) my 1950’s Betty Crocker Cookbook (yes, I still have my mother’s original); (2) The Moosewood Cookbook (a “must” if you’re an interested, partial or wholly vegetarian); and (3) The Nine Books of William Maltese’s “The Traveling Gourmand.” Yep, that last one is a standard reference by Mr. Erotica himself, soon to be a film ...

ROLL OVER INDIANA JONES…

Posted by Daniel S. on Thursday, May 6, 2021, In : books 
JUST read “The unsolved mystery of Sri Lanka’s ‘Stargate’ by Demi Perera on CNN (http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/20210502-the-unsolved-mystery-of-sri-lankas-stargate), and have to admit it got my science fiction juices flowing. Not just flowing, but hot to boiling! As those of you who’ve read my latest book, THE EDGE OF MADNESS (Aignos 2020) by Raymond Gaynor know, I’m particularly fascinated by the new M-Superstring Theory and the Multiverse. Reads like a great sci-fi book or mov...
