China to dominate space within 10 years I fell in love with China, and live in Shanghai with my wife and three sons since
Once upon a time, Yahoo! was an Internet search site with mediocre technology. Now it has a market cap of $2.8 billion. Some
Two hundred days have passed -- 165 remain. The vivid slideshow behind my eyes plays on, even though, looking through the pictures I've taken, I know our tiny world is wreathed in glowing white, patient grey and bloodrust red.
Ultimately, I decided to give up the state of distractedness from my mission-critical creation projects for Lent. Here are the exact steps I took:
At present, we can only aim interplanetary payloads to within 6 miles of a target at best. As those pre-packaged bundles will be arriving months or years before we will, it's not unreasonable to project that the first Mars mission might have a 1-2 month period dedicated to locating and assembling the various pieces of their habitat.
Making discoveries, breaking legs, breaking mountainsides and records: that's been that kind of month. A really good month, all things considered.
In recent years there has been a drive to create a marriage between the world of international development (typically value driven, grassroots, non governmental, justice and equality focused) and the world of business (often seen as corporate, profit making, unjust, squeezing the ethics and the values to the minimum).
I don't have an agent or an editor expecting the completion of my manuscript, no publishers are wooing me with six-figure advances for a book deal, and nothing I've written has ever gone viral.
This year, I also thank the Universe for everyone's health. I have 4 grandparents over the age of 90, two friends being actively
There are a lot of tasks and responsibilities that we face, some good, some necessary, and some just distractions. But recently I discovered a small daily practice that has helped me feel like every day is worthwhile and fulfilling.
In a word, Confucianism is neither voluntarism, extolling the infinite compass of human free will, nor is it fatalism, denying any possibility for human creativity. In the Confucian view, human beings are endowed with various talents.
Mark Palm thinks he knows what Jesus might do if he were a pilot. He might climb into the left seat of a Cessna 206 Amphibian and fly the 700 mile long Sepik River in Papua, New Guinea helping transport the sick to the region's only hospital.
For our first-month-i-versary in the dome, we all wrote blog posts. The theme was "what I learned in my first month on sMars." This month we came up with another theme: what's the most challenging, and most rewarding, part of being on sMars?
When we manifest our desires before we are ready to hold the magnitude of their power, we either lose it prematurely, not appreciate it or it doesn't have the powerful impact it could have if it was birthed at the right time.When things happen before their time, it doesn't leave a powerful soulful impression.
For the first few days in the dome, I didn't feel like we were on Mars. We weren't on Earth, exactly, either. We were in some sort of strange neither-world. Now, finally, it's beginning to feel a lot more Martian.
What do you say during your last few minutes "on Earth"? Things will break. We will not. How I know that I just can't say. I think it's because we prefer to laugh more than we like just about anything else. Even science. Even being astronauts for a year during NASA's longest planned Mars simulation.
Every day I wake up and it is my mission to do everything possible to make sure that I make a difference when it comes to addiction and recovery. If you asked me five years ago if this would be my life, I would've laughed at you.
