Wait! Before You Take That Power Nap… (Video)

My brother (BoneBreaker Jones) and I speak on this from time to time. We’re both night owls trying to do us AND do our best to meet the daytime demands of ‘their’ world. Going hard, getting older wiser; we know we need rest and respect nap time. We can’t be #TeamNoSleep because that is just not healthy or even productive. But maybe we go about it wrong somehow. In the above clip, we (like me & you, bro can watch later after doing ‘their’ work) learn about the ‘power’ of naps… good and bad.

Let’s build that sleep pressure up while on the grind, then get only the good sleep.

Why Have We Not Gone Back To The Moon? Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson Answers (Video)

Still won’t put down conspiracy theorists, but Neil deGrasse Tyson offers a really reasonable response to rumors of lunar landing fakery, to beliefs of America’s leadership in the field of space exploration, to general inquiry about the motivations for going into space in the first place (the moon, Mars and beyond).

Baba Brinkman Is Dropping Science… Brain Science… In His “Rap Guide to Consciousness” (Trailer)

Not sure if you know like I know, but there are folks in Hip-Hop whose works I admire yet will probably never totally ‘get.’ Like, I know Raekwon is dope, but sometimes he goes into some bushes I have never seen before… and I can’t follow what he’s doing. I just chalk it up to him doing him doing Hip-Hop… and I stay on a Hip-Hop path because I know he will come back and stomp down a familiar path (or at least one I can follow) and we’re good. That kind of thinking is not just for Hip-Hop. I think about Neil deGrasse Tyson or Gary Vaynerchuk or some of the far-out science/tech articles I post here… not knowing all of what is going on, but knowing there is something there; that this is something I should be following.

This cat, Baba Brinkman. He’s like that; with his lyrical presentations about consciousness and such. I just dug some write-ups about him out of the inbox and peeped this trailer that came with them… I’m seeing critical acclaim, some building buzz, association with work I often follow into some of those aforementioned bushes (see Mega Ran – who I ran across while staying up on the moves of the homie SkyBlew). Yeah. So I subscribed. I get a good amount of what he is spitting about (yeah, like rapping about) in his rhymes that engage and explore the mind. And while I am sure Baba will head off into some bushes I’m not eff’n with from time-to-time, I get the feeling that he will brink it back (come, rewind). Like Chef Raekwon and Dr. Tyson do for me.

Check dude’s trailer out and see if you can keep up with what he’s putting down. One time for your mind!

Science: Heather Berlin Asks, “Who Is Your Brain?” (Video)

Interesting! Check out this TEDx Talk from Dr. Heather Berlin – neuroscientist, spouse of consciousness rapper Baba Brinkman, and mother of a new ‘experiment in diapers.’

Dr. Berlin examines the relationship between the brain and mind, with a focus on borderline personality disorder. She looks at the neurological basis of identity, taking apart the stigmas that are often attached to mental illness.

By understanding how disordered minds construct a sense of self, we can gain insight into the selves that each of us creates through our choices and interactions with the world.”

Hmm… the Doc’s got content on PBS and Discovery and off Broadway. Yup. Now she is on my radar!

Science: Have You Seen The First Interstellar Visitor To Our Solar System Yet? (Video)

My brother and I were just talking about this: Soooo, an INTERSTELLAR object in our real view now… scientific FACT… like a few months ago at most… and we are not gonna talk about it anywhere near as much as a science-FICTION about some long-ago-far-far-away ish???

Astronomers recently discovered a bizarre-looking object in our solar system that’s unlike anything they’ve ever seen before. It’s so peculiar that astronomers think it’s not even from our solar system. They’ve dubbed this mysterious interstellar asteroid “Oumuamua.” Following is a transcript of the video.

This asteroid is not from around here. Turns out, it came from another star system. This is the first time humanity has observed an interstellar object.

Science: Earth’s Longest Living Lifeforms (Video)

I was just telling someone the other day: I think it is a good thing that we cannot talk to animals and plants. Some species have been around way long, and live way longer, than us. They could tell us about ourselves. Really tell us about ourselves.

And living that long, that ‘reading’ on us could get ugly. Still… thinking about how long they (e.g. non-human lifeforms) live. Hella interesting!

Neil deGrasse Tyson Suggests That Maybe Aliens Have Already Visited Earth… During Comic-Con (Video)

Wanna see some aliens? Dr. Tyson says drugs, drugs, drugs… can come through and make that dream come true… for you. Hahahaaa! But this clip though: MIND-BLOWING!

Neil deGrasse Tyson touches our soul in this clip where he talks about aliens and considers the idea of extraterrestrials already living among us in secret.

Should we feel a kind of way about the 2% diss Neil put down in this though?

Science: Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Take on Aliens And Why We Should Become A Multiplanetary Species (Video)

Worried about the possibility of aliens enslaving us based on the way WE (humans) have acted throughout history? You would not be alone. Great minds hold that opinion, too. Minds like Dr. Stephen Hawking (like many others) assume that any advanced culture would conquer one it finds inferior. Dr. Tyson respectfully (and optimistically) disagrees.

Neil deGrasse Tyson responds to Stephen Hawkings view on aliens. He also discusses artificial intelligence.

Great heady theoretical talk that we can all follow. Cool.

Science: How Far Have Our Spacecraft Traveled So Far (Video)

New Year’s… on these occasions we usually look back and look forward at the same time. How about we do something like that here: As we boldly go into 2018, let’s take a look at how far we have boldly gone, into space as a human race, already.

2017 marks the 60th anniversary of the launch of Sputnik, the first satellite to orbit Earth. In those 60 years, we’ve gone much further, reaching new planets and even the edge of the solar system. Watch as the human race explores the galaxy around us.

How Long Would It Take To Dig To The Center Of The Earth? (Video)

Know how when folks in The States would say something referencing ‘digging their way to China?’ Bet cash money this video blows their mind about how long (and improbable) a ‘trip’ like that would be.

If we were to journey to the center of the Earth, it would take a lot longer than you might expect. Here’s how deep humans have dug underground.

Advice: Stranded On An Island? Don’t Panic…

After a day of overstuffing my belly with a house full of loved ones, I just thought it interesting to come across this vid about maybe starving and dying alone. Macabre much? Hahahaaa!

Still full (burp) from Turkey Day though. Not starving for a loooong time homie 😉

Science: How Will We Evolve Over The Next 1,000 Years? (Video)

Interesting insights and predictions. Maybe we’ll be around to see if the ‘experts’ that put this clip together got it right. Maybe. Unfortunately, we are definitely doing our best to bring the Armageddon… choosing world leaders who are killing us or are gonna get us killed (or letting them stay in power)… eating and drinking poison (by choice, by ‘design’ or by inaction or incompetence of our leaders)…

Okay, okay. Staying positive. And THANKFUL!

Science: Neil deGrasse Tyson Offers An ‘Interstellar’ Explanation Of Reality Beyond Three Dimensions (Video)

That “Interstellar” flick was incredible by the way. A real mind trip, especially the way they viewed time and space in outer space. Crazy… until go-to astrophysicist and all-around smart guy Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson breaks it down for us. Then it makes much more sense.

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson saw “Interstellar” and then came by Business Insider to explain what the ending means – and if it’s scientifically sound.

Time. Wow!

Future Farm: Growing Food With No Soil And 95% Less Water (Video)

Vertical farms use less land, less water, less energy… and seem to be more efficient at producing food. Facts. But don’t take my word. The video says so, and I am sure the claims are verifiable if you want to go looking.

Me? I hope the authorities are looking into vertical farms. We have almost 7 billion people on this rock, and a lot are going malnourished and hungry.

How Star Trek’s Transporter Could Actually Work In Real Life (Video)

Well, hello! You had us at ‘Star Trek.’ But a real-life transporter? Amazing! Theoretically at least. And to all the nay-sayers… Shaddup!! This is just a pre-first attempt at it. Just thinking aloud about transporter tech. Where do you think the inspiration for the old mobile flip phones (‘Kirk to Enterprise’) and the iPad technology (thank you for the report, Yeoman Lady-In-The-Tight-Miniskirt) came from? Yeah, STAR TREK!

Of course, the whole make-a-copy-and-destroy-the-original idea that drives this… not really feeling that.

Western History Vs. African History (Video)

Hmmm… How deep can deep get? Africans did not even see themselves as Africans, or being tied to the African continent… and even the name “Africa” is derivative of what Westerners / Europeans imposed. Watch Dr. John Henrik Clarke drop serious science and knowledge on that, and more, above.

An analysis of the history of Africa as compared to Western civilization. European scholars asserted that the so-called ‘Egyptians’ were non-African until C. Diop’s melanin pigmentation test on Pharaohs proved otherwise.

Science: What Is A ‘Category 5’ Hurricane Really? (Video)

We’ve been hit with hurricanes these past few weeks (Harvey, Irma)… hit badly. And it was reported that the weather events reached Category 5. But what does that mean actually? Anyone?

Hurricanes roll up the Atlantic basin every year, but they weren’t categorized until 1971. The system, called the Saffir-Simpson Scale, tracks wind speed, damage caused, power and water loss expected, and habitability of affected areas. Category 1 storms are usually the least destructive, with the scale topping out at Category 5 storms, which can cause areas to be uninhabitable for weeks or months.

Science/Technology: The Hydrogen-Powered Rasa Car Looks Good On Paper… And On The Road (Video)

Okay, let me beat you vroom-vroom car enthusiasts to the punch. Zero to 55mph in 9 seconds is certainly NOT blowing the doors off anything. But c’mon son, 300 miles on one tank AND no emissions at all… Slow ya roll and save the world… literally!

The Rasa car is powered entirely by hydrogen and looks straight out of a James Bond movie. It can reach 55 mph in 9 seconds.
