You’ve probably never heard of Critical Race Theory, just as you have probably never heard of a car “governor”. Both are all around you. Both are well integrated into your daily life.
Critical Race Theory states that racism is ingrained in every aspect of our society and exists independently of the individual racist. Terms and phrases such as “white privilege” and “black people can’t be racist” originate from this theory.
Critical Race Theory sees our society as nothing more than the power dynamics of the oppressed and oppressors. Bad actors of the oppressed race are condoned since they are not…
Never before in my lifetime have I been so intrigued by the nation in which I was born, a proud and prosperous nation, full of opportunity. Diverse and rich in culture, the United States of America has led the world through this new booming age of technological growth and scientific achievement. America’s democracy has been a cornerstone and
model for nations around the globe. But sadly, morality has not been a strong point. The question of truth and honesty is a tricky subject for Americans to face.
Truth or tradition?
This age-old question lingers in the dark shadows of our…
Below are additional astronomical terms that will acquaint you with the world of stargazing and astronomy.
Obliquity: Obliquity or an axial tilt is the angle between an astronomical object’s equatorial plane and orbital plane. The Earth’s axial tilt is 23.44°. This means that the Earth’s equator is at a 23.44° angular distance from the ecliptic. Obliquity is the cause of seasons on Earth. During the summer months, the northern hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun and vice versa via during the winter months.
Transit: A transit is when a celestial body passes directly between a larger body and the observer…
Our nation was founded on the principle that each human being has certain inalienable rights. So while equality, justice, and freedom of the individual are written in the constitution, Americans still owned slaves.
Our transgressions against the values of the constitution have continued to this very day. We have progressed past many ills, but we remain the same infallible human beings.
America and Britain’s history of imperialism and colonization are unmatched. We have harmed. We remain irrefutably flawed. Our country and its corporations have terrorized, ignored, and trampled upon Native Americans, African Americans, and Central America, to name a few…
It’s been a long week, so I decided to take a moment to forget about things and enjoy some good old fashion TV. I don’t have cable since TV isn’t my thing, but Amazon Prime is. I turned on my Xbox and immediately flipped through movies and television shows. I grazed a couple of titles, but my interest was apathetic at best.
Then, I had a bright idea…I haven’t seen my favorite movie in a while: Star Wars, Revenge of the Sith. As I watched the opening battle scene, I wondered why people hated this film so much?
Our movement and change through time and space are fundamental characteristics of what it means to be alive. Imagine a world where everything was still, no time, no past, no future, nothing.
Without movement and change, absolutely nothing would exist. As much as the entropy of change eventually dooms us all, it also gives us life. There is no life without movement. There’s no life without change, time, and space.
The stars and planets give an overwhelming perspective on movement, change, space, and time. It’s fundamental to how we live our lives. Look at your watch. Have you ever wondered…
Most logical fallacies have more to do with formal arguments and less to do with how we communicate with each other daily. There are simple words and ideas used in our everyday speech that have a significant impact on our interpretations, perceptions, and decision-making.
Listed below are a few of those terms. Understanding or reviewing these terms will give you a slight edge while watching the news, attending a meeting, or discussing world events with your loved ones. I chose these terms because I’m often involved in situations in which these definitions could come in handy.
Below are the terms…
As 2020 came to a close, I would like to say it was an adventure, and despite everything that went down, I’m grateful.
They said silence is violence, so I said everything I felt I needed to say regarding what I believe was the height of cultural and systemic fearmongering, propaganda, and delusion. Usually, I’m a guy who loves to wait for things to play out and only comment if I have to.
Last year I couldn’t. The national narrative driven by the national news media forced me into the conversation by those who used my skin color and my…
The word “optimization” is a very vague term used by many people in the digital marketing industry. The question that hangs in the air with many management teams is, “what exactly does it mean to “optimize” a digital marketing campaign?”
Well, I could be spilling the beans here, but I’m going to pull back the lid on what we mean when we say we are “optimizing” a campaign. Usually, optimization of a Facebook Ads campaign consists of three main areas of interest: optimizing placements and networks, bids and budgets, and ad creatives.
The internet allows anyone, anywhere, to record, communicate or convey information at any time. Although this in itself is revolutionary, it’s not without its pitfalls. The internet is reeling with misinformation. There are groups such as Q-Anon and flat earth theorists who have genuinely abandoned reality for far-fetched conspiracies.
Grifters and snake-oil salespeople are more than willing to tell you what you want to hear for the enormously high price of your attention, likes, comments, and feeding the beasts we call algorithms.
The truth is that we are in an infantile stage of the information age, the wild wild west…
