How To Ruin Your Life (Without Even Noticing That You Are)

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:
Erin Kelly Understand that life is not a straight line. Life is not a set timeline of milestones. It is okay if you don’t finish school, get married, find a job that supports you, have a family, make money, and live comfortably all by this age, or that age. It’s…

AND SO IT BEGINS…

As I have mentioned I will be restarting The Scientist which was a comic strip I had started on my first blog back in 2013. I drew everything by hand of course, but as always I was quite busy and was not able to properly refine my process. Now, by some unknown fallacy through which my […]

A Little Meaning for Your Life

We lead ourselves through daily routines. Each day we get up, we run a couple miles, we take our shower, shave, make our coffee. We journey out of our home towards our work place, to grind away beneath a massive umbrella of overseers. We toil away our minutes, our hours, our days, our weeks, our […]

Spin up is 1, Spin down is 0: Manipulating a Single Electron

Nature Physics just published an article on the ‘Strong mechanical driving of a single electron spin’ which deals with the manipulation of a single electron. Computers need to be able to store the values with which they are computing, and quantum computing involves using the spin states of an electron to measure the corresponding 1’s […]

SAMPLING SCIENCE: The Engineering Behind Craft Beer

Hey guys! I stumbled across a great site here. This site is the home page for an event dreamt up by Anna Hayes and Taylor Lubecki. These two were the original fundraising chair-people for the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). They also headed up the funding for the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). The […]

A Process on Working Together, by Feynman

It is an idea we often have in the workplace, the idea of working together. Cooperation! How beautiful a thing. Yet so often we fail to achieve that which we set out to do, quibbling and arguing without giving proper time to hear our fellow man’s words. Here is an excerpt from Nobel Prize winning […]

The Elephant Movie – the sound of it

? Sound. We don’t pay enough attention to it. We all have our favourite evocative smells – lemon verbena, petrichor, Atlantic cliff gorse on a summer afternoon… I think I can identify at least half a dozen Cornish sea fish by their smell alone. But favourite sounds? That takes more…

WATCH: The Perseid Meteor Shower -NASA to host live broadcast

With the new moon the way it is tonight, the Perseid meteor shower could be the best in years. Be sure to look outside to catch glimpse of the shower. You can also check out the links below. Turns out the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama is doing a live broadcast program over the […]

Beginner C/C++ Coding. Installation of Code::Blocks, MinGW, and Your First Loop

Hey everybody, I wanted to put together a quick but in depth post on setting up your computer (this will be geared towards a Windows 8 OS) so that you can learn to do basic coding. I know that I ran into a tad bit of trouble while installing the MinGW C/C++ Compiler. Hopefully this can act […]

“The Fall” by Albert Camus – Book Review

This book review is over “The Fall” by Albert Camus, published by Vintage Publishing. It is a phenomenally quick read with only 147 pages and good sized print. The book itself was the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957, which says something of its depth and perspective. The author has an interesting […]

Iron, Copper, Candle Man and the Purple People Eater

I started this night out waking from a nightmare, a regular occurrence for me. I had only just gotten to sleep, an hour in total, when I awoke abruptly. Whilst sleeping I was being chased by a purple skinned beast, shaded in the darkness of my mind. My family and friends laid out before me on […]
