Jun 03 2015 - Having no honest answer is the most frustrating part of an inquiry; at once, you feel ignorant and unprepared, pressured to provide some response, and conscious of a coming impact to your reputation. And yet reserving answers for when true knowledge exists can be critical to having a voice worth hearing. People can be fooled by a smooth tone atop misdirecting rhetoric for a time, of course, but a fundamental lack of understanding always shines through in the end. Do not be afraid to say: I don't...

Dec 12 2014 - One of the most dangerous/awesome things about the College Experience (TM) is the complete lack of adult supervision. Before college, everything in my life was scheduled and executed mostly without my consultation. Toward the end of my adolescence, the amount of autonomy I possessed expanded slowly, but there was always an overarching sense of authority. As soon as I was nestled into my dorm, however, that authority vanished. I found myself completely at the mercy of my own brain; and, generally...

Dec 02 2014 - No-Shave November has come to an end, and with it my beard! The ultimate goal of this stunt was to raise money for the American Cancer Society, and to promote awareness of men's health issues. The attached picture represents the before-and-after on the final hour of the challenge, and my face feels two pounds lighter...

Dec 02 2014 - I remain ever-thankful for the many things which the world has granted me, entirely without my consultation or any prior effort. I was born in an affluent country, in an affluent corner of that country, to a wonderful family in a wonderful home in a wonderful town. I was given all the privilege and opportunity that such a touch of serendipity can o...

Nov 14 2014 - I am continuing to participate in a charity event called No-Shave November (now for the third consecutive year). The ultimate goal of this stunt is to raise money for the American Cancer Society, and to promote awareness of men's health issues. I have just completed two full weeks without the razor, and the attached picture represents the current facial hair situation, which is rapidly spinning out of control. It certainly creates some awkward initial discussion during business meetings, but it ...

Nov 03 2014 - Tracing the evolution of modern society is a complex task. The start of our explosive growth resides in the wide adoption of agriculture, which allowed us to set aside much of the time-consuming tasks of hunting and foraging and put our brains to use on efforts with less immediate need. From these agrarian roots we started to group together and develop systems of governance, a cultural structure, and the arts and sciences. Some families were able to gain and defend larger plots of land and devel...

Nov 01 2014 - I am participating in a charity event called No-Shave November for the third consecutive year, raising money for the American Cancer Society, and to promote awareness of men's health issues. As the name implies, I will not shave any facial hair for the next thirty days. The attached picture represents the zero-day facial hair situation, and I will ...

Sep 15 2014 - Never forget that there is a pioneer inside you. The great achievers of years ago, of today, of tomorrow, are not unique. They were not touched by destiny, sprinkled in fairy dust, or in any way given a competitive edge in this race to greatness. They are like you, like me, like all of us. What sets them apart is their relentless passion and determination to win, at all costs, in the face of failure, in the face of ridicule. Success can never be guaranteed, many will fail, but it is impossible to succeed with that pioneering spirit. Sail off toward that horizon! To death or greatness, and settle for nothing else!

Sep 04 2014 - I am participating in a charity event and fundraising effort called the Polished Man. I will be wearing nail polish on my right ring finger for the next two weeks in order to raise awareness and money in support of charities seeking to curb childhood violence, and support those who have (or currently) suffer from childhood violence around the world...

Sep 03 2014 - PROVIDENCE - It shocks me to discover that only 22,600 voters went to the polls in the 2012 Rhode Island Democratic Primary, accounting for only 2.7% of all registered voters. By contrast, there are 236,665 registered Democrats, and 838,066 total registered voters, currently residing in the state. That is an awful turnout for a vote that could well have decided the outcome of many local elections, including federal representatives. I cannot overstate the importance...
