The essays in this blog cover diverse topics such as sailing, judo, science, politics and just plain musing.
I started judo a long time time ago in Chicago. Through it I have discovered many things about myself. This section will discuss some of the many aspects of judo aside from being a means of self defense. One of the things I will discuss is an aspect of “self defense” that I have not seen discussed elsewhere.
Being a sailor in a land locked state is kind of a contradiction. Sailing can be done on inland lakes and of course in the ocean. These can be vastly different experiences.
Unlike “Dr Science” (does anyone remember this reference?), I do not have a masters degree in science. Rather I spent 4 years earning a Ph.D. in Physiology. After spending that time in school, 3 years in research fellowships and 7 years as an assistant professor at a new medical school, I have a lot to say about this experience and the scientific method in general.
Will this be the savior of our planet as least in terms of the survival of the human race? Over 10 years ago, I decided to start investing in renewables for my home. I started with one array generating about 2 kilowatts and over the next few years expanded this to a 10 KW system. I addded solar hot water and a geothermal system that are integrated into a hybrid system.
This will include discussions of politics and anything else that pops up.
