What I’m Reading: June 2018 – Science, War, Information Conflict, Cyber Conflict, and Looney Tunes

Articles I found most interesting in June 2018: This Is Why Physicists Think String Theory Might Be Our ‘Theory Of Everything – Medium.com, Starts With a Bang, 6/14/2018 A quick look at a very deep subject. Theoretical physics has always fascinated me. Especially string theory. I’ve often wondered if the movement along the strings could […]

What I’m Reading – October 2016: Weaponized Media, Populism, Cyber Attacks, and Asian Hip-Hop

Animating automobile aggression

On occasion, I’ve been known to be a bit aggressive on the road. I’m not a bad driver, by any means. I know, everyone says that, but I’ve never been in an accident (knock on the web equivalent of wood) that wasn’t a slight bumper tap. The only time I have ever needed to involve […]

New music animosity is nothing new

Mickey Mouse Vietnam Protest

I can only assume this is not a Disney-sanctioned Mickey cartoon (see the Wikipedia entry on the cartoon for a brief history). How long it survives before the Mouse Legal Team takes it down is anyone’s guess. But […]

Hey kids, don’t try to fly in a Batman cape

According to Wired.com, the University of Leicester recently did a study on the physics behind Batman’s attempts at flight. The Leicester students found that without a parachute, Batman’s gliding though the air would go unhindered, resulting in crashes that could be up to 50mph. No word on whether the superhero known as Captain Obvious was […]
