P&V’s LOL #10: Lasting change never comes until you defy authority

It’s obvious, really.  Authority is the machine that defends the status quo.  It’s like inertia – a body stays in motion or at rest until a force acts against it.  Defiance is that force.  When you look at people from … Continue reading

Multitasking isn’t.  Isn’t what?  Isn’t Multi.  Not really.  Just when we thought we were more efficient, science rears its ugly head and proves us wrong.  Google multitasking and you’ll see most of the results busting the myth of multitasking — … Continue reading
