This has been 'the future' for at least five years now, with no real sign of it breaking out into the mainstream. Hopefully it will soon... More bandwidth is always better!

All electromagnetic waves travel at light speed, including radio (wi-fi) and visible light (li-fi). I don't see how li-fi will offer faster speeds than wi-fi if the mediums of communication have the same theoretical speed.

it's not a breakthrough, This is a known concept for decades. It can never replace the radio waves and there is no two way communication here. So, only for streaming videos? considered breakthrough?

Are they envisioning a world without children, groceries, or where we all own next to nothing we ever have to schlep around? If anything, I'd like to own a truck! A tiny car might be great if you're not a parent or a small business person (an artist, a landscaper, a contractor, etc.) who has to move around a lot of their own equipment regularly. But even living within cities, people don't just magically stop needing to haul stuff. Sheesh! :/

Liberal arts will continue to be a useless laughingstock until colleges get rid of idiocy like feminist dance therapy and how to identify as a hippopotamus instead of a male or female.

More corporate mainstream media propaganda basically telling people that lifelong debt slavery for a useless piece of paper is still acceptable. I have a whole bunch of those pieces of paper and $170,000 in debt. When i decided to start my business, which i could easily have done without any of my degrees, i was making $10/hr as a groundskeeper. Take it from me, use that money you would have spent on college to travel and experience the world. Join peace corps or americorps. Just do something else.

Is it coincidence that today is 105 years since the birth of Alan Turing, brilliant mathemetition, war hero code breaker and who laid the foundations of modern computing, but was persecuted to the point of suicide?
06/23/2017 at 20:57
It's so easy to find the bigots with their thinly veiled comments of disgust on these posts. Trying to get people to stop talking about being gay isn't showing us that you are cool and don't care, it's showing how much it bothers you and that you DO care.

I always say that I didn't lose anything (virginity), instead that I gained sexual experience.
06/23/2017 at 22:44
As a heterosexual woman who lost her "virginity" violently, I find this perspective so empowering. It focuses on the first consensual loving experience vs. the first penetration. More about giving yourself to another person than what was taken or lost.

People seem to be having difficulty navigating this new "fact-free" world. They conflate scientific consensus with deeply held religious belief. It doesn't work the same way. The beauty of science is that each theory is only good until the next set of data disproves it. As the world becomes more complex, we need to be able to trust experts and scientific consensus...and block out the static.
06/24/2017 at 08:25
Fact: almost all politicians lie to gain public support for their (oftentimes, nefarious) self serving interests and/or geopolliical agendas and almost all whistleblowers disclose the truth and actual facts (due to conscience) that expose the corruptions and illegalities of their peers and/or superiors for altruistic reasons.
06/23/2017 at 19:20
Facts are not up for debate. Unproven facts and theories are.
Lies are up for debate.
No one is debating if water is wet.

This white girl with naturally curly hair will rock her curly hair tomorrow. Thank you so much for this talk. I have been a slave to the Chi iron for years because I thought it looked more professional. God blessed me with this wonderful messy curly hair and my personality is more messy and curly anyway. This is liberating!

My husband barber says to me "what do you put in your hair to make it curly like that ?" I said I don't 😒 what does bug me a little is when some people feel compelled to touch and squeeze my fro - rude really.

Så du var igang med nudging Camilla - i denne liste er også flere interessante, eks. "The Confidence Game: Why We Fall for It … Every Time": This book offers fascinating insight into how we get fooled and how we sometimes fool ourselves. It deftly weaves together Konnikova’s psychological expertise with some tragic stories of people who were scammed. While the focus is on pure scams and cons, you can’t read it without pondering broader lessons about business, politics and life." 😘
