Tagline
"Genius might be described as a supreme capacity for getting its possessors into trouble of all kinds." - Samuel Butler
Introduction
All around Jill-of-all-trades, mistress of a few. I translate tech into English. Android enthusiast. Browncoat extraordinaire. You can ask me anything. 

What I'm Into
My tastes are constantly evolving. But I'm passionate about: 
  • STEM education
  • Android
  • Photography
  • Women in tech
  • Travel
  • 90s music
  • All things Geek and Nerd - hardware, software, and entertainment.
  • Disney
I flirt, sometimes dangerously, but if you creep, you will be blocked. There, you've been warned. Proceed at your own risk.


"I think you mustn't tell your body, you mustn't tell your soul, 'I'm going to retire,'" Dee told The Associated Press in 2001. "You may be changing your life emphasis, but there's still things that you have in mind to do that now seems the right time to do. I really don't believe in retiring as long as you can breathe."
Bragging rights
"If you were any more of a super star than you already are, the world would end from the heat coming off of you igniting the air." -- Hank Yeomans

5 Retro Gaming Projects with the Raspberry Pi Zero http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/5-retro-gaming-projects-raspberry-pi-zero
The Raspberry Pi Zero, like its original forebear, has taken the DIY and homebrew world by storm, making it possible to revise old projects and inspiring newcomers and Pi veterans with a whole host of new ideas. Somewhat surprisingly, the lack of things like an Ethernet connector and GPIO pins has not proved a barrier –…

Great view, though it makes me think of a fish tank. I can imagine at night a bunch of predators stalking outside, trying to figure out how to get at the "snack" inside. ;)

Stop telling me to smile
But, more interestingly, the researchers also found that the software showed no gender bias in it's RBF statistics — it detected bitchiness in both male and females faces equally. Which means it is wholly a societal phenomenon that we can identity several more women with RBF than men and it is quite possibly hindering female workplace success.

"_RBF isn’t necessarily something that occurs more in women, but we’re more attuned to notice it in women because women have more pressure on them to be happy and smiley and to get along with others,” MacBeth said_.


Behavior researchers Jason Rogers and Abbe Macbeth studied the concept of Resting Bitch Face using face analyzing software on celebrities like Kanye West and Queen Elizabeth.

Critical Thinking is severely lacking in today's education system
But academic philosophy is that discipline of the humanities concerned with clarifying and analyzing concepts and arguments relating to the big questions of life.

The focus is on asking questions because philosophy, as Socrates said, begins in wonder. We don’t just ask ourselves questions—we ask others, those who make up our society. It’s true that philosophy involves a lot of sittin’ and thinkin’ on one’s own, but as the late American philosopher Matthew Lipman wrote in his essay “The Educational Role of Philosophy:”

Philosophy may begin in wonder and eventuate in understanding, or even, in a few instances, in wisdom, but along the way it involves a good deal of strenuous activity. This activity generally takes the form of dialogue.”

8Dialogue is key because only then will our assumptions, reasoning, and conclusions be challenged. Only then can we become better thinkers. And in the process of becoming better thinkers through intellectually rigorous dialogue, our children can become better citizens*.
' If we fail to turn second-graders into Socrates, our kids may end up becoming expert at a making a living, but they will be incompetent at creating a civil society.'

5 Ways Technology Might Be Feeding Your Depression http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/5-ways-technology-might-feeding-depression
One of the most troubling things about technology is its correlation with increased rates of depression, particularly in people who spend a lot of time on computers. It's not surprising though, once you realize that computers can ruin our sleep habits and affect us in other ways mentally. To be clear, we want to make…
