For a long time I have been convinced that addiction is a disorder of decision making produced by patters of experience and learning. This article is a good summary for that position.

Proponents of clean energy will soon have a new source to add to their existing array of solar, wind, and hydropower: osmotic power. Or more specifically, energy generated by a natural phenomenon occurring when fresh water comes into contact with seawater through a membrane.

Robots and AI will not have to become fully intelligent or domineering, in order to control us. All they will have to do - and it is coming fast - is become cute, empathic-seeming and, yes, pathetic-yearning to tweak and tug at our natural human sympathy-drives. My weekend posting explores this likelihood, being developed in labs all over the world.  And there's more, about our coming transparent world.

Vamos bien y hay que continuar igual... o no.

El mercado laboral español sigue creando empleo e, incluso, ha recuperado el ritmo de crecimiento del pasado ejercicio en el mes de junio. Pero la precariedad sigue siendo una de las notas dominantes del nuevo empleo. De los más de 9,4 millones de contratos firmados en los seis primeros meses del año, sólo 502.941 (el 5,3% del total) eran de máxima calidad, es decir, indefinidos y a tiempo completo.

The future belongs to rents, not salaries... We must adapt with a basic rent, ownership sharing and other alternatives.

¡Albricias! Lo que no entiendo es por qué entonces la caja de la seguridad social está cayendo en picado.

El número de parados registrados en las oficinas de los servicios públicos de empleo (antiguo Inem) bajó en junio hasta 3.767.054 personas, su menor nivel desde septiembre de 2009, después de experimentar un descenso de 124.349 desempleados respecto al mes anterior (-3,2%), su segundo mayor recorte en un mes de junio dentro de la serie histórica.

Introduction
I am married, with two adopten sons. Psychologist, I have worked mostly in special education. 

I declare myself a world citizen striving to explore and develop a shared new planetary consciousness and to coordinate civil actions that mold public opinion and push political decision making in the direction of world citizenship, democratic global governance, global justice and ecological sustainability.

I consider myself a transhumanist, supporting the possibility and desirability of fundamentally transforming the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to eliminate aging and to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.

My interests include psychology, international politics, science and technology news, science fiction, gentle riding, yoga (I am a certified yoga teacher), potted trees, and go (baduk or weiqi).
