I've probably seen more images of the confederate flag in the past week than the previous year.

+Vivian Spartacus One hopes, but I'm afraid it won't be...NPR had someone from the Southern Poverty Law Center on yesterday who argued that with changing demographics and continued shifting of wealth to the upper class, there's going to be a lot of pressure and feelings of marginalization and victimhood for people from, for instance, the Charleston killer's demographic...which will only help recruiting efforts of racist and fascist organizations.

And this is why it's important to choose your critics wisely...

Systematizing your workflow leads to increased performance and, despite the fancy name, is simple to implement!

Updating the macbook to Fedora 22. Not sure if prayer or a voodoo ritual is more appropriate. Wish me luck.

My friend and mentor Paul Tomes has a lot of great things to say about leadership and development...including this!
 
Approachability and accessibility. Get either wrong and you'll be slamming a door in someone's face.

Approachability and accessibility - even with modern offices lacking physical doors, your actions can have the same effect as slamming one in their face.

Best book on this topic I have found is the Army Leadership Manual. One thing I think I nailed over the years was management and leadership... and that book was a tremendous help (and years of practice of course). Recommend. Good article.

I don't think I was close enough to even know this happened, heh.

Saw mad max today. Insanely good film, but also super violent. I think I'm losing my tolerance for the latter the older I get.

The snark is strong with this one. Although you should know that penicillin is an antibiotic, and wouldn't help with "minor viral infections" as you imply.

Well, there is a downside to being a caveman... we still yearn for fat and sugar cuz, we are still cave men...
http://lifehacker.com/5934802/science-explains-why-we-overeat-and-how-to-stop-it

We are largely still, hunter-gathers. It was only an eye-blink ago that a dramatic change happened. It will be some time before we shrug off that heritage.

And... yes, hunter-gathers will empty a cupcake tree in a heartbeat. They do already. That tribe is called modern man. We not have access to cupcake trees! And thus... we are all overweight and obese. The ingenious point being made by the Paleo Gurus is "Hey, I know! Let's not eat the cupcakes from that tree" cuz, the way are currently designed, though we desire them, we are not designed to healthfully eat them. One day of total bliss? Sure. But in our society, the cupcakes keep growing back. :)

mmm ... cupcakes.
