    Believe In Your ROBOTICS Skills But Never Stop Improving

    Automation has taken place everywhere, it does not stop whether we are ready or not to accept it. Innovations like robotics, Machine learning, machine to machine data transfers, vehicle transformations, flying cars will rapidly change the global economy and replace manpower. If we ask kids about their dream the majority of them will say technology. Yes, with the technological advancement everyone is interested in that from travel to healthcare, school to high-end professional course, each and everything lies under technology. Soon robotics will replace the human workforce and how it will affect government policy.

    Space Age Mermaid

    Sulily sleeps suspended inside a transparent, cylindrical womb filled with luminous blue fluid. Her suit sticks to her body like a second skin and has knobby nodes that run up the length of her spine and end at the soft helmet's base at the back of her neck. From the center of the helmet, wires fan outward and upward, gathering at the control center at the top of the container. Her mouth and nose are covered by a breathing apparatus with a serpentine root that coils and stretches down to the base of the cylinder.

    The Amazon Is on Fire but There Is Hope

    2019 has not been kind to the Amazon Rainforest with more than 40,000 fires across the region this year alone. Scientists from Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research have determined that this year alone has seen the fastest rate of burning since the organization began a record-keeping survey on the health of the rainforest in 2013. In fact, the toxic smoke from the fires is so intense that many parts of Brazil now lay under darkness, and in some places, hours before the sun could even start setting.

    The Seven Laws of Origami

    Akira Yoshizawa, a teenager in the nineteen-twenties, quit his factory job and proceeded to turn paper-folding into a fine art. Today, origami kits are common and consist of a booklet of instructions and a set of colored paper. The paper is two-sided with a different color on each side. The instructions, consisting of mostly of arrows and lines, are a part of a worldwide standard of visual language for origami that Akira pioneered. He also invented the wet folding technique, which allows for more sculptural interpretations.

    The Siren Songs

    When I heard that my name had been turned into a legend I was shocked but not surprised. There is an element of truth in every story, even when it sounds like a Greek myth. I’d heard strange bits of conversation throughout the whole day, disjointed fragments of descriptions, but they were all about me. I didn’t think much of them in the moment. Only when I was safely away from any human contact did these conversations rise back up in my mind, not unlike layers of muck at the bottom of a lake when your foot stamps down.

    Our minds carry with it a bag of memories. We have the pleasure of pulling them out any time we want and wander back to a time. The very idea of being able to physically travel back in time and experience life from the very first second is a dream and fantasy many people have had. And I am no exception to daydreaming about unordinary things. Such fantasies reflect a deeper yearning for doing something idealistic, but which is completely out of reach.

    Symmetry and Groups

    Symmetry and Groups

    The symmetric group is the group defined over “any set whose elements are all the bijections from the set to itself, and who’s group operation is the composition of functions”, while the symmetry group is “the group of all transformations under which the object is invariant, endowed with the group operation of composition” (Wikipedia) “Isometry” comes from the Greek word for “equal measure”: Isometros. An n-dimensional space in the real numbers has an isometry from one function in R to another. The set of isometries that map a function onto itself on the set of real numbers is called a symmetry group. The symmetry group of an object is dependent on both the object itself and the space in which it is viewed. There are four types of symmetries in two-dimensions: rotation, reflection, translation, and glide reflection. Rotation consists of spinning either left or right. The axis of reflection, or mirror, is the line which acts as a two-way mirror between the original structure and it’s reflection. A translation moves all the points an equal distance in the same direction while a glide-reflection consists of both a translation and a reflection.

    Why "The Good Stuff" Isn't, When it Comes to Time Travel

    Why "The Good Stuff" Isn't, When it Comes to Time Travel

    Wheezy Waiterm, AKA Craig Benzine, is the main host for a geek/nerd Youtube show called The Good Stuff. I don't watch these kinds of shows, because for the subjects I like, it's always above the pay grade of the show hosts and they either wind up pretending they know or understand it, or kiss the ass of some scientist they interview. Then later is what happens when the hapless cast of The Good Stuff have on the greatest fraud in the history of physics, Ronald L. Mallett. Nothing, and I mean nothing of any significance related to time travel has resulted from Ronald Mallett's claims, which are often exaggerated and baseless, if not outright lies, despite the fact he hides behind Einstein like a religious zealot hides his terrorism behind the name of his god. For the record, Einstein didn't even like the idea of time travel and since Mallett is supposed to be such a fanboy for the man, he should know that. And for ALL OF YOU, I don't care if you're a geek, nerd, armchair physicist or some PhD in theoretical physics in some community college somewhere—Guess what? The fact that all the solutions for time travel derived from Einstein's theories require a SPACE PROGRAM should tip you off that they're not exactly applicable solutions to the problem at hand and the answers actually lie elsewhere. That none of you are too swift on that account is probably why you don't realize how insane it makes you all look. Right. INSANE, or have you forgotten the quote that has been erroneously attributed to your favorite genius, pre-Hawking. You know—"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result"? Like, you know, like constantly trying to force relativity to produce time travel results. Good quote. Certainly applies to all of the aforementioned suspects, but no, Einstein didn't say it. After all, as a professional researcher, I check my sources. More on time travel and its dubious links to the theories of Relativity, momentarily.

    HAARP What It Actually Is

    HAARP What It Actually Is

    A conspiracy nut that cannot think critically would have you believing that HAARP is used for weather control. The document “Owning the Weather for Military Use,” found on Global Research.ca states that weather modification is possible as part of domestic and international security without people knowing about it or having a say in how HAARP would be used. HAARP is supposed to generate rain, fog, or storms on earth, but it's not limited to modifying space weather. The seven year drought California faced that has brought PG&E to its knees with the current power shut off crisis of which I’m not personally affected by, is over thanks to majorly wet winters in 2018 and 2019. I’m writing this article to see what facts or fiction can come out of actually researching this stuff instead of taking a Facebook meme at face value. HAARP is actually a project that is studying the properties and behavior of the ionosphere. The research facility went from the hands of the United States Air Force to the University of Alaska Fairbanks on August 11th, 2015.

    ‘Ad Astra’ Serves Dazzling Sci-Fi Spectacle Amid a Compelling Examination of the Male Psyche

    ‘Ad Astra’ Serves Dazzling Sci-Fi Spectacle Amid a Compelling Examination of the Male Psyche

    It seems like an annual tradition that a critically-acclaimed sci-fi from an auteur will be released to either adoration or derision or both from a general audience. Gravity, Interstellar, The Martian and Arrival all earned acclaim and were generally well-received by audiences, but then Blade Runner 2049 and Annihilation faltered at the box office and the latter did not even receive international distribution, instead being bailed out by Netflix while a studio reluctant to even release the film barely marketed it at all. I think the box office results of Ad Astra will be carefully examined by studios to see whether this genre is worthy of being financed as original films’ performance at the box office continues to trend downward. What’s also interesting is that this film is a holdover from 20th Century Fox—now Disney owned—which could be completely reshaped itself under new management. Ad Astra’s release was pushed back numerous times which was concerning as it could have been a sign of studio apprehension, as the film is a clear financial film relying on star power, word of mouth audience response and marketing. The September release date the film was given was clearly a clever choice however, as only one franchise heavyweight was released, so it was mostly a level playing field between mid-budget original films, which was quite refreshing and I hope becomes the case more often. The film has performed better than expected, crossing more than 100 million worldwide, but it still stands to lose money, it’s box office performance similar albeit slightly better than another space-based film, First Man. These auteur-driven films go against typical Hollywood filmmaking, but it’s saddening to see such a lukewarm audience reception for a more creative take on the genre and going against convention.
