I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.

Tree tunnels are perfect examples of how nature can be shaped over many years by humans and other external influences. When paths and roads are carved into the ground, nearby trees bend outward into the new patch of light to receive more energy for photosynthesis. This process continues until the tree branches on either side completely overlap, forming a thick ceiling over the pathway beneath.

Sex Education in American Public Schools

This is the state of sex education in America, and it needs to change. Everyone should have access to quality sex education that includes positive, healthy relationship modeling (that is all-inclusive) and medically accurate, reliable information about contraception and abstinence. This should also include education about abortion and how to access an abortion in your state. Not enough young people are getting this information from reliable sources, and it is something we can, and need to, change.

The science of ‘Transcendence’ isn’t just fiction—it’s terrifyingly real

Transcendence is based directly on the principle of singularity, the moment when technology surpasses humanity. In fact, Dr. Caster, the film’s protagonist, even states as much in the trailer, asking an audience to, “Imagine a machine with the full range of human emotion. It’s analytical power will be greater than the collective intelligence of every person in the history of the world. Some scientists refer to this as the singularity. I call it Transcendence.”
Over the years, the biggest proponent of the singularity has been noted author, scientist, and futurist Ray Kurzweil, who freely acknowledges that, “Science fiction is the great opportunity to speculate on what could happen.” Although a notorious eccentric, Kurzweil’s thinking has led to numerous technological innovations over the last few decades. Recently, he partnered with Google (yes, Google) in their efforts towards “using techniques of deep learning to produce an artificial brain.”

This is the Master-ring, the  O n e  R i n g  to rule them all. This is the  O n e  R i n g  that he lost many ages ago, to the great weakening of his power. He greatly desires it— but he must not get it.
