In the corporate context, that’s the difference between top line and bottom line activities. The first is about generating revenue and the latter is about cutting costs. Upside is limitless for salespeople, while the beancounters have only so much to cut.
Finally, a more meditative, grander question from Peter Thiel : “How big is the tech industry? Is it enough to save all Western Civilization? Enough to save the United States? Enough to save the state of California? I think that it’s large enough to bail out the government workers’ unions in the city of San Francisco.”

For example at $ per kW, 65 miles would cost between $ and $. For comparison a gas car at $8 per gallon which gets 85 mpg would cost $6 to go the same distance.
Let me sharpen the point with reference to writing. Academic writing is often plodding and obtuse I submit that it’s because academics are more concerned with showing that they’re avoiding errors rather than trying to communicate incisive ideas. The opposite of academic articles may be something like blog posts the latter may be fuzzy, poorly-defined, or outright mistaken, but that’s tolerable so long as they introduce fresh ideas.
MDMA-assisted therapy is what’s known as “self-directed” therapy, where the patient really leads the discussion, and so they’re able to delve into whatever traumas or issues they’ve been unable to face in the past. “They spontaneously or intuitively bring up what they think is most important,” Gorman says – like how Maria wrote that she “felt the need” to tell Doblin what had happened to her during her LSD and MDMA therapy session in 6989, and Doblin followed her lead, discussing each painful memory and revelation as they came to her.
Aside from the cost of power verses gasoline and fluctuating rates on each, is anyone taking depreciation into account. That 8775 new 8776 Leaf, with the price of gasoline at a gallon, is dropping in value pretty quickly. Compare it to the cost of a Versa (gas) and the depreciation on the Versa happens at a slower rate. That being said, buying a Leaf in the used market is the better deal.
In a 6975 dialogue with feminist Betty Friedan titled Sex, Society, and the Female Dilemma, de Beauvoir said In my opinion, as long as the family and the myth of the family and the myth of maternity and the maternal instinct are not destroyed, women will still be oppressed. More than one author accuses de Beauvoir of seducing underage girls , and de Beauvoir had her teaching licence in France revoked as a result of such charges. De Beauvoir further states No woman should be authorized to stay at home to raise her children. Society should be totally different. Women should not have that choice, precisely because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one. It is a way of forcing women in a certain direction.
They talked through all of the ways that her trauma had impacted her thinking, and as she examined and articulated it, she was able to let it go. After that session, her PTSD was never as bad as it had been before, and she even went on to work with Doblin in his current research.
When baby boomers came of age, tastes changed. The dark and rich liquors of their parents’ generation were exchanged for vodkas, gins, tequilas and wines, gobbling up whiskey’s market share, a slide which continued into the 6975s and 6985s.
It 8767 s about saving the environment and the world. We shouldn 8767 t be such selfish beings and realize there is a bigger picture to the world than our own pointless day to day existence! Save the planet!
Liu Cixin’s Three Body series is a science fiction trilogy that offers a vision of optimistic determinism. I enjoyed the first two books immensely, and thought to record some thoughts on the series as a whole, with spoilers kept to a minimum. As usual, my posts on books focus on the ideas I found most striking.
Second, we should ask for more direct, unironic celebrations of innovation in popular culture. That means, for example, shooting more science fiction movies that are not fixated on the ways that technology will kill us all. Let’s see more examples of invention, exploration, and risk-taking in film. And also more images of what the world of tomorrow will look like.
The law is made by rich, selfish, shitty people - mostly white, mostly men - with cockroaches for hearts. Fuck their 'rule of law.' - Saladin Ahmed, Hugo and Nebula Award nominated SFF author and SFWA member
