“To the extent that governments are getting weaker and are seen as less legitimate, companies are going to be required to be more ‘patriotic’. They are going to be required to do more for citizens, as opposed to just shareholders.”

The U.S. Government should:
- Use commercial technologies wherever possible, saving tax payers trillions of dollars.
- Retrain and up-skill workers across the U.S.
- Invest in machine learning and artificial intelligence. That could be used in every part of government to improve services provided to its citizens.
Borders can be concrete walls or intercellular membranes. In either case, disgust elicits feelings of maintaining one’s purity, of keeping others out.
Microbes killed millions more of our ancestors than did Tigers and Bears. Whoever can keep themselves and their children from being exposed to illness, wins the evolutionary game. Disgust is judging carefully about people. Is he dangerous? Is she dangerous? That is, our bodily interactions structure how we think about social issues.
Finished reviewing the manuscript for my ‘Can Twitter predict the outcome of the U.S. Presidential Election?’ case study, which will be included in Dr. Kristen Sosulski’s forthcoming book Insights into Becoming Visual, out on Routledge Press this Spring 2018.

Clever commentary from our favorite Wall Street Cats, @StockCats .
Mark Twain is often reputed as to have said, “History does not repeat but it often rhymes.”
The French Revolution – The causes of the French Revolution are complex and are still debated among historians. Following the Seven Years’ War and the American Revolutionary War, the French government was deeply in debt and attempted to restore its financial status through unpopular taxation schemes, which were heavily regressive. Years of bad harvests leading up to the Revolution also inflamed popular resentment of the privileges enjoyed by the clergy and the aristocracy. Demands for change were formulated in terms of Enlightenment ideals and contributed to the convocation of the Estates-General in May 1789. The first year of the Revolution saw members of the Third Estate(commoners) taking control, the assault on the Bastille in July, the passage of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen in August, and a women’s march on Versailles that forced the royal court back to Paris in October. A central event of the first stage, in August 1789, was the abolition of feudalism and the old rules and privileges left over from the Ancien Régime.
