Data from a recent study entitled, The Highest Form of Intelligence: Sarcasm Increases Creativity for Both Expressers and Recipients, suggests that the delivery and deciphering of sarcasm offers psychological benefits that have been largely underappreciated and long overlooked.
“To create or decode sarcasm, both the expressers and recipients of sarcasm need to overcome the contradiction (i.e., psychological distance) between the literal and actual meanings of the sarcastic expressions. This is a process that activates and is facilitated by abstraction, which in turn promotes creative thinking.”
In the study, participants were randomly rotated through simulated conversation tasks that had one of three conditions: neutral (control), sincere, and sarcastic. After each conversation, participants were asked to complete unrelated “creativity” tasks. Those addressing the creativity tasks after sarcastic conditions consistently outperformed those attempting the tasks after sincere or control conditions.
“This suggests that sarcasm has the potential to catalyze creativity in everyone,” Columbia’s Galinsky told the Gazette.
This reminded me of traveling. Sometimes we get literal scars, and other times they're much more metaphorical. In any case, you can't truly live life without collecting a few scars along the way, imho...
Showing up for it was the key phrase to me. It's the only way I've ever imagined living. I was never one who enjoyed being an Armchair Traveler, for example. I had to be out there -- out in the world, whatever the cost, financial or physical. I had no choice then or now; it's part of my DNA, seeing the world. And just like the explorers of all ages, it had always driven me to want to see more. To me, it just feels right.

Certificate of Completion
This course was designed to equip you with the knowledge and skill that will get you up to speed with FPGA Design in VHDL. You will be expected to have some basic knowledge on digital electronics such as the meaning of Flip Flops, Gates and Finite State Machine, and also some basics of programming language would help in the course.
Although the design flow will be dealt with in almost its entirety, the course starts from the basics and take you up to an intermediate level, where you will be able to take a design from a concept through the different stages of design until seeing the design work on a board.
The course is structured in four parts, starting with a simplistic view at how FPGA’s work and the resources that are available on a typical FPGA. The tool FPGA Editor will be used. Then an overview of ISE Flow will be presented in part 2, along with demos on how the tool is downloaded, installed and used. The third part of the course will explain and demonstrate how the most useful VHDL syntaxes are written, and at each step, the Technology Schematic is viewed to understand how VHDL codes are synthesized into logic.
The last part is about designing a Home Alarm System from the concept and State Diagram. A step-by-step approach is used to show all the stages of the flow, including writing of the codes, Synthesize, add constraints, run Implementation, Timing Analysis, Behavioural Simulation and Post implementation Simulation and Configuration of the FPGA and PROM on a Basys 2 board.
The course consists of 6 hours of videos, spread over 50 lectures, and provide demos to show how the tool is used effectively.
