After reading "I Need a (Black) Hero: Hollywood Still Doesn't Grasp Representation" by W. Kamau Bell in Wired's June 2017 issue, I thought more about the question, "How many Black Superheroes do we need?" Now, some may write me off simply by questioning. But...

Being anti-GMO is morally wrong

GMOs had a bad rep for a minute, but being anti-GMO is morally wrong. Let me explain: There are over 7 Billion people on the planet. We need to feed these people. And if we kill all the mosquitos (we should) and keep curing diseases, we'll have even more hungry mouths...

We can afford it. We can't afford not to do it. We must figure out how to fund universal healthcare in America. I've thought about this a lot. Insurance is wasteful. Obamacare was awful. Trumpcare is not much better. Why does healthcare cost so much more in the US...

This is What a Women’s March Should Be

Happy International Women's Day! Leave it to a man to tell y'all how to do it. haha I jest. But I am a very principled person. And I do stand for women. On liberty, always. I don't take the politically correct and convenient stances though. I take the tough stances...

Our Power Grid is About to Change Forever

Batteries are getting better. They'll soon hold more energy longer periods of time, rapidly dropping the cost of energy. Wind power is illogical in many cases. Hydro can really mess up aquatic life systems, so that's not viable for an ecologically responsible...

Developers Should Focus on Android. Here’s why.

Most apps launch on iOS first. That's mostly because that's what all the Silicon Valley kids have. iPhones. They build for themselves and their friends. All rich kids. Who can afford iPhones that cost $700. 80% of smartphone owners have Android though. That number is...
