I'm a proud member of the left and not bothered by the idea that our genes play an important role in determining who we are - I'm blaming my dad for my fat tummy!

BUT I'm also a super geek and totally unopposed to genetic tinkering that I suspect the right is vehemently opposed to. (CRISPR babies are coming, it's only a matter of time!)

I wonder if it's actually the religious right who will be held back by lack of desire to tinker with their embryos in the future. Will our Gattaca future be a religious war too?


The idea we can be anything we choose is “such an old-fashioned notion, with absolutely no backing whatsoever.”

Gene Therapy Trial Wrenches Families as One Child’s Death Saves Another

New DNA fix stops brain-destroying terminal illness, but only if it’s given early enough.

Not really what the name suggests, but an interesting look into how some of the economic policies of the EU, and they put most of the blame on Germany, are causing global economic issues.

Brexit might be the wake-up call Europe needs to prevent the EU from wrecking the whole global economy.

I wonder where I am, and what we've done to our children, but unfortunately this is very focused on mother/child... 
The most important parenting you’ll ever do happens before your child turns one — and may affect her for the rest of her life. One mother’s journey through the science of attachment.

Somethings can only be loved because a computer made them. Things like this:

Does capitalism need reforming?
Should we really be surprised that young people are rejecting the economic status quo?

I love podcasts and Snap Judgement is one of my favorites. Some amazing stories that will make you pause and bring you joy.

This is one of my all time favourites.

http://www.newyorker.com/business/currency/the-l-e-d-quandary-why-theres-no-such-thing-as-built-to-last

The economics of obsolescence, how it's destroying our world and why making better products might also save the working class.
Building light bulbs to last poses a vexing problem: no one seems to have a sound business model for such a product.

I like his vision of the future...it's highly optimistic, but then I've always been a techno utopian...

Fears of civilization-wide idleness are based too much on the downsides of being unemployed in a society premised on the concept of employment.

DeepMind made a name for itself by building a computer that beat the world champion at Go (and freaked everyone out) but now it’s moving on to a project more likely to help the common man: diagnosing blindness.

Ok, I admit to listening to all my podcasts on fast forward, but watching TV? Hmmm....that's a step too far even for me.

+David Blanar how about you?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2016/06/22/i-have-found-a-new-way-to-watch-tv-and-it-changes-everything/
Game of Thrones. The Bachelor. House of Cards. It's now possible to watch everything. How? It's the future of storytelling.

Yeah. I could probably watch modern family that way, but there's no way I'm watch GOT any faster. I enjoy it too much!

It's been a while since we last went to Hugo's, but I'll definitely be heading back soon. The food was excellent. Unfortunately I had massive food envy due to my mealmate's Roast Lamb. I know what I'm having next time!
