Windows 10 Thoughts

Installed it Wednesday night and got a non-functioning laptop. nothing would work, except for Google Chrome. After deleting the windows-old folder, I got a bit more functionality. Then I had to do some command line work to get the start menu working. I got a lot of help from this website. Finally got Cortana working after about 10 minutes of struggle. During this whole process, I rebooted every 30 minutes to two hours, and with each reboot the system became a bit more functional. Now it seems to be working, and my laptop has never been faster. Adobe Premiere Elements opened instantly - in Windows 8 that would take about 2 minutes to get it to open. That's a welcome change. This computer seems snappier. My thought is that the plan must have been to make the install a quick upgrade, putting basics in first, and then slowly filling it out in the background through downloads and updates while the user figured out the new UI. The last two things to gain functionality were the MS store and now I'm waiting on Xbox to work so I can try out Minecraft Windows 10. Those are not working as of right now, but the store just worked when I clicked on it, so that's a good sign. In the end, I should have just done a clean install.

The ISS and a Colorful Moon
Image Credit & Copyright: Dylan O'Donnell

Tonight's Full Moon, the second Full Moon in July, could be called a blue moon according to modern folklore. But this sharp and detailed mosaic, recorded with telescope and digital camera just before July's first Full Moon, actually does show a colorful lunar surface. The colors have been enhanced in the processed image but are real nonetheless, corresponding to real differences in the chemical makeup of the lunar surface. Also easy to see especially when the Moon is near full phase, bright rays from 85 kilometer wide Tycho crater at the upper right extend far across the lunar surface. Against the southern lunar highlands above and right of Tycho is an amazingly detailed silhouette of the International Space Station. Seen from Byron Bay, NSW Australia on June 30, the ISS lunar transit lasted about 1/3 of a second, captured with a fast shutter speed in burst mode.

I can't believe that this is my fourth #HUDL  summer institute. Hard to imagine. It feels like I've done just two. The final day of debates is happening now, and it's always a good time to think about teaching finished and teaching yet to come.

The long read: Damien Hirst’s mass-produced art has lost its power to shock. Now, in an attempt to wrest control of his legacy, he is opening his own gallery. Will curating restore his status in the art world?

Story

Professor of Rhetoric, Teacher of Debate and Argumentation
Introduction
Teacher and student of the Way of argument, debate, and rhetoric in the grand and glorious city of New York.

I have a job that I can't believe exists, teaching impossible things to skeptical people about something all humans naturally do - speak.

I am a professor of Rhetoric. Yes that means exactly what you think it does. I direct my University's competitive academic debating program. That probably means something a bit different than what you think it means.

Questions that interest me:
How do we agree on meaning?
How do we know if we are in an argument or not?
How do we teach people how to argue?

Here's to putting the Sophist back in Sophisticated!

Great place for American, simple comfort food in a very open and relaxed bar environment. No table service and they won't serve you coffee after 5, but the craft beer selection is enough to keep you awake. And anyone behind the bar knows their stuff. Feel free to test them; they are honest and right about the beers, and won't steer you toward something you won't like just because they have an old keg of it. A must visit spot for beer and grub in Brooklyn.
