Checking Out Allan's Falafel at the Crystal Run Galleria Mall
I became spoiled when I lived in New Paltz. There were so many places to eat and drink that I never had to worry about finding something of high quality. When I moved back to Goshen, it was sadly much more difficult to find. There were a few locations with really great food and drink, but they declined over time, and I've been looking for something new. Luckily, Allan's Falafel opened a new location at the Crystal Run Galleria mall and I couldn't be happier.
Scrutinizing NFT Prices
NFTs are all the rage today. A lot of companies are producing NFTs, whether they're pure collectables or components of a game. Some of these NFTs can go for a lot of money. But what are the mechanics behind NFTs are their prices? The beginning and end of price is supply and demand. But what goes into supply and demand? This question really can be applied to pricing any asset, but it can have further implications for projects involving NFTs, especially NFT based games.
Content Creators Should be Accepting $BAT
Let's face it. Getting any kind of revenue from content creation is difficult. Really difficult. And so we rely on a lot of different options. A lot of content creators have PayPal accounts, a Patreon, a Ko-Fi, and so on. They're all great options, but one option is seriously overlooked: Brave. Both content creators and fans alike should be using Brave to support each other.
Want Wonderful Italian Food, With Spectacular Service?
I'm somewhat particular about restaurants. There are a lot of "okay" restaurants out there, but there are very few really memorable ones. Every once in a while you find a local gem. And for me, one specific place comes to mind.
The Mountaintop Dream
Climbing above the mountaintop, untouched by humans for who knows how many years. Ruins sit timeless, undisturbed until my arrival. Beautiful white stone. Marble perhaps. Intricately carved in latticework.
Understanding Anxiety, Panic, and the Utility and Limits of Therapy
Anxiety and panic are two closely related psychophysiological (relating to both the mental and bodily state) concepts. But they're not the same, and their differences can be a bit confusing. It's also a common misconception that anxiety and panic are always bad things. They're not. They can be good. However, when they become detrimental to our health and ability to function, we need to seek help.
Lockdowns are Directing the Evolution of Novel COVID Strains
Everyone in learns, in biology class, that evolution is governed by forces like natural selection. Sometimes natural selection is referred to as "survival of the fittest," though that's not quite right. Fitness merely changes the probability of different traits surviving within a population. But natural selection isn't simply a biological force. It is an environmental force. Fitness changes based on the environment. A trait that's detrimental in one environment might be useful in another. Sometimes the environment changes for natural reasons. Sometimes humans change the environment.
Psychoanalyzing Fictional Characters
Psychoanalysis is a useful skill. Professionally, therapists use psychoanalysis to help treat patients. However, a lot of internet folks have a tendency to psychoanalyze friends, family, or even people they've never met. It might be helpful to use an informal analysis to judge how someone will react and how to respond to them, but people go way too far.
