This past month, and for the remaining portion of this month, +Megan Wildhood and 6 other poets will be posting daily at the Tupelo Press website, as part of a fund raiser, for this indie press.  If you explore her writing I promise you an enjoyable, life-enriching experience.  Although, you may need to have a dictionary handy, to get the most out of the metaphors, thoughts, and imagery.  Enjoy!

"but mind is rocked in the cradle of apophatic wholeness, / deep-unto-deep beyond our most gracious humility."

So rad!
 
Beautiful!
Algorithms are a fascinating use case for visualization. To visualize an algorithm, we don't merely fit data to a chart; there is no primary dataset. Instead there are logical rules that describe behavior. This may be why algorithm visualizations are so unusual, as designers experiment with ...

Here is an excellent essay on the more, the "This" beyond illusion of nihilist walls projected by the popular (and unexamined) philosophies of the age that are often assumed to be scientifically established.

"In every field, this view was being pursued to its postmodern conclusion; all the leading theorists were busy committing epistemological suicide."

It's also interesting to note how much in common Christian families and people might have in common with Jewish ones.
 
"That’s where I thought I would spend my life: a cultural Jew, a closet nihilist, searching despite myself for something transcendent to fill the hole where God was."

Experiencing the ineffable is a winding path, a journey with as many pivots and tacks as straight lines. And sometimes you find your course in a dentist's chair, contemplating why the this matters and realizing you just need to show up.

Hi all,

For the past 10 days, and for the rest of the month, +Megan Wildhood  has been participating in a poem marathon - one poem a day, published online on this linked website, for this entire month.

The Tupelo Press is an established non-profit literary press that has asked it's marathoners to help raise money for the press, during this month.  I urge you to check out her poetry.  And if you're compelled by the beauty you find, help support the press in Megan's name (m.nicole.r.widlhood).

Thanks!

WOAH.  This spoken word commentary on the Christian Church's response to the broken and mentally suffering, will give you chills.
“You are loved,” “you are loved,” “you are loved,” you recite it like it’s Scripture as you walk away to importance-filled dockets and pulpits and meetings to minister and leave your words and the guilt of not believing them because … Continue reading →

This is a captivating story. +Yonatan Zunger, thanks for sharing.
 
This is a bizarre enough story that it's worth a read. Arlan Galbraith is now serving a seven-year prison sentence for running a Ponzi scheme -- only instead of moving money from one investor to another, to hide the lack of real profits, he moved around pigeons. The "Pigeon King"'s business involved selling breeding pairs of pigeons to investors, and promising to buy the resulting pigeons back from them at a fixed price; as time passed, the idea was that these pigeons would be sold either for racing or as food. But no such market actually existed, and the pigeons he bought were simply sent off to other investors.

As with a classical Ponzi scheme -- in which investments from new suckers are used to pay off the original investors -- this only continues to work so long as he can keep finding new investors. But when what you're moving isn't money but live birds, any excess pigeons that you haven't been able to use to lure in investors aren't profit, they're birds which you have to house and feed. Which probably has something to do with why people do not, generally, try to run Ponzi schemes using live animals as currency.

What's strange about this case is that it's very hard to tell whether or not Galbraith understood that he was running a scam. As the article puts it, to tell whether he was a "skilled con man or hapless businessman or hapless con man or all three" is nearly impossible.

But it's as unusual an implementation of the idea of the Ponzi scheme as you're likely to ever see, and the story of this man, and his victims, is quite fascinating.
Did Arlan Galbraith really think he could turn pigeon into the next chicken? Or was he running an elaborate scam all along?

This was perhaps my most memorable and enjoyable dinning experience of my life. My wife and I live on a small budget, and typically avoid the more expensive restaurants. However, this was worth every penny! Loved it!

My wife and I stopped in here as part of a weekend of celebrating our one year anniversary, and loved it. Small, warm, friendly family restaurant charm, with excellent food. We're excited to return, next time we're in Aberdeen!

As unlikely as this may sound, Taco Del Mar catered for our wedding and did an amazing job, for an extremely affordable price. They also appear to be making a thoughtful investment in green fast-food packaging. I would highly recommend them to anyone, for a inexpensive mexican wedding cater. Also, a nice place to duck in from the rain for a warm burrito.

El Camion has amazing food for the price. The over all experience of eating there is enjoyable, except for being outside. Their burritos are very filling.
