What I imagined bitcoin would do When I first started to get a grasp of what bitcoin was I imagined that it was capable of redefining social hierarchies and possibly even eliminating them. I thought that it would be the first currency that was truly defined and run by the people. No one person couldContinue reading “How Bitcoin Works vs. How I Imagined it”
The human eye and why I focus so much on mistakes Human biology is full of mistakes. It shouldn’t be a surprise that in our evolutionary travels that we ended up with a few glitches along the way. What is surprising is that we don’t think we have any glitches. We understand that we haveContinue reading “Common mistakes people make: The human eye, essential nutrients, and reproduction”
Human Error and Uncertainty The human experience is anything but predictable. If you are an economist you face this problem sooner than later. One of the great purposes of the sciences is to offer predictability. It is how we made the calendar, how we got to the moon, and how we opened up the worldContinue reading “common mistakes people make: availability heuristic and outcome bias”
Part 1 Part 2 Alvin walked outside of his home through the back door. He sat in his chair on the mountainside that his house was built on.

Thus,Continue reading “how to not care about what others think”

In “God Bless the U.S.A” I would always have a deep emotional connection with the words “I’m proud to be an American Where at least IContinue reading “How to gain freedom and “make it” in life”
“Hey, Jenny can I tell you a secret?” Ellie asked. Some might say that this was the first question that Ellie has ever truly asked Jenny. Not that they hadn’t conversed before. They knew each other’s favorite color. Both of them knew they liked pizza but Ellie preferred it without pepperoni. They knew each otherContinue reading “Contemporary Magic #1”
Anxiety permeates all facets of our lives and is our constant companion. It shows up on test day in the classroom, it’s there when called upon to give a presentation, on the first date anxiety is ever-present, and even in trying to escape the troubles of life, it’s there, nagging about the need to doContinue reading “Dealing with anxiety – A perspective for the modern age”
