"Rodney, "I don't have a receptor for that" is good - nerd humor I can relate to. For me, I have the receptor, I have the giant sponge, even, to absorb and I understand well, and have loved studying the varying scientific hypotheses…"

""I don,t have a receptor for that" is good, but I'm not sure that's it. I think a lot of it is bad explanations, people not knowing how to talk to laymen. This has been a serious pet peeve of mine forever.  When my wife…"

"I haven't listened to the phenomenon. I don't have that good a system set up any more. People I know in the field tell me it's audible.  In CD's it's called sampling rate: how many 0/1's per second. The more, the…"

The Gift of Polymaths

Posted on July 22, 2017 at 7:30am 12 Comments

Yesterday, Sean Spicer, white house press secretary resigned when someone was brought in from the outside to serve as communications director, the position Spicer hoped to be given.  I can’t imagine anyone wanting that job, or any job in the Trump administration, but then I can’t imagine a world of alternative facts, and the belief that any news that does not agree with your concept of reality is “fake news”.

At the same time that Sean Spicer was resigning I was…

The Law on "Robo-calls"

I’m sure you’ve noticed, whether you have a mobile phone or a land-line the increase in unwanted, irritating robo-calls.  Registering with “do not call” seems to do no good.  The callers get around whatever restrictions are left on telemarketers.

One frequently used ruse is to begin the…

Rodney, that "Pushback" can be hell. While at Marylhurst many decades ago, I studied Change Agentry, which gave me a systemic appreciation of why all our social agitation work was far more struggle than accomplishment...and always will be ;-)

Rodney, thanks for your invite.  I appreciate your ability to think in terms of the systems and apparatus that we rely upon to function. When its all said and done, it IS the system where our new insights have to be applied. I look forward to learning and sharing. mvn

I just posted and tried to implant a link. Hope I made it work correctly. Ah, scrolling above, I don't think I did. Next time!

As to your question, yes, I spoke at the Eugene/Springfield UU. Twice, in fact. Once on military issues and another time on UU'ism - a two-fold path. What's your association?

Thanks, Rodney....once question, is there a way to contact your friends on here without leaving a public comment?  Lots to get used to ...

There's a party going on with tunes, flicks, and chat here and at Open Salon! Help us build it out of  the ashes which O.S. machinery created with slow loads, etc.? We'd love to have you.

I'm not sure why you arent seeing the 'forgot password' option on sign in.  Try this link:  

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/signIn?target=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2F

just below the "sign in" button you should see a link for "i forgot my password"

if the link doesnt appear there, try this one:

http://oursalon.ning.com/main/authorization/requestPasswordReset?previousUrl=http%3A%2F%2Foursalon.ning.com%2Fmain%2Fauthorization%2FsignIn%3Ftarget%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Foursalon.ning.com%252F

if none of this works, please let me know and i will make inquiries about it.  Also, sorry for the delay in responding.

thanks,

lorianne
