    Lizzo, Telling It Like It Is

    Lizzo, Telling It Like It Is

    Lizzo is an American musician, originally from Detroit, Michigan. Lizzo's success was so swift that she was named Time Magazine's "Entertainer of the Year" in 2019 and her album " Cuz I Love You" made number four on the Billboard 200 list of most popular music in the United States. After her flute performance at the 2019 BET Awards, Lizzo received a standing ovation from the crowd, which included popular singer Rihanna. Lizzo's song "Good As Hell" became very popular last year, climbing up the charts in both the United Kingdom and the United States. Lizzo is also a well-know exemplar of body positivity. In a Vice interview she said, " You can wake up and change many things about your appearance, but the inevitability of waking up in your own skin what unifies us."

    Midnight Snack

    Midnight Snack

    It was winter break and I had flown back from Colorado for a few weeks. There was a short winter session, but I had been sick with mononucleosis for almost all of my first semester of college and was completely burnt out on school. The winter session wasn’t required, so I decided to spend the whole break at home in California. On the morning on which I flew back, there was a heavy blizzard and several feet of snow were dumped around Colorado Springs. The airport was packed and all the flights delayed. I was splitting a taxi with another Bay Area local whom I’d met during my short stint on the college swim team. The snow was so deep that the taxi was late but with the severe delays at the airport, we made perfect time to catch our flight back to San Francisco.

    Brain Database Uploads and Neurons versus Synthrons

    Brain Database Uploads and Neurons versus Synthrons

    Let's say that, in the future, one is able to upload you brain into some sort of backup similar to the way in which one stores a computer's information on a backup hard drive. The “back-up” copy of your brain should be the same as the intended “original” copy, otherwise, what would be the point of having this “back-up” brain? What if the contents of your brain, stored on this backup hard drive, was downloaded into two bodies simultaneously? More specifically, what if this backup information was downloaded into both a body living in Hawaii and the one intended for hard labor on Mars? The answer to this question is dependent on the nature of the technology used to perform this upload. If the upload is somehow affected by the simultaneity of the upload, there could be damage done to the software as it is uploaded, depending on how the data is transmitted. Imagine two people trying to stream Netflix on their devices using the same WIFI network. There may be moments where the show gets paused on one or both computers because streaming uses so much data and in the case where one is uploading a database contenting someone’s thoughts, it could cause small failures, or perhaps even a completely failed download.

    The Interdisciplinary Nature of Studying the History of Science

    The Interdisciplinary Nature of Studying the History of Science

    The origins of various sciences are dependent on existence of other fields of science. A single experiment can lead to the creation of a whole new field, which is true in the case of very important discoveries. Although there are perceived and documented pressures on some groups of individuals, those situations frequently lead to important discoveries being made by unexpected individuals, like Galileo, who worked on the fringes of science.

    Galileo Galilei’s "Dialogue on the Two Chief World Systems" on Trial

    Galileo Galilei’s "Dialogue on the Two Chief World Systems" on Trial

    In the introduction to the trial letters, Thomas F. Mayer writes that the trial is similar to a myth and that “ This is not at all that surprising, since the trial has almost never been studied as a legal event” (1). A reader might ask why the trial is not being studied as a legal event. Also, Mayer points out: “ Almost equally important, studying the trial more closely takes some of the heat out of the often violent debate over the rights and wrongs of what happened” (1). Federico Cesi, an ambitious grandnephew of a cardinal, banned members of religious orders from his club called Academy of the Lynxes. He had become a patron of Galileo’s and continued to insist the prevention of members of the Jesuit order from entering the Academy (2). Galileo disaffected the Jesuits, which helped lead to his downfall (2). The Jesuits began as a collection of approximately 20,000 teachers and missionaries who ran various academic institutions. These universities often were home to the the world’s greatest scientific instructors (3). Cesi died before he was able to complete publishing Galileo’s Dialogue (45). Although he was instructed not to use interpretations of the Bible in his explanation of Copernicus’ ideas about astronomy, “ [Galileo] acted as he always did, ruthlessly pursuing an agenda of liberty for philosophy and fame for himself” (3). Cardinal Conti was a lawyer instructed by the Jesuits, his ambition of running the papal state threatened the position of his nephew, and he remained outside of Rome for a long time. Galileo asked the advice of Cardinal Conti because one of his servants was a scientist whom he had known previously (41).
