It’s All About the Hunt

November 18, 2019

If you have never hunted before, or you don’t know anything about how it is done, it would be a good idea to read this story. In this article they tell the story of a man that tracked a deer for six years.

There are many things that go in to hunting, and a lot of people believe that it is just a bunch of red necks running around with guns shooting at innocent animals. But there is a sport to it that not many people get to see.

I like this article because it goes through what it really takes to hunt. Most people believe that hunting is simple. Something that does not take much work to succeed, just sit and wait.

The reality is that it takes a lot of time, patience, and in most cases skill. a good hunter spends time tracking the animal, setting up trail cams, and waiting for the right time to strike. Most often the best time to hunt is early in the morning as the sun comes up. This gives the hunter the most amount of daylight to find and shoot his target.

Coach Jacob Stevenson is a white man in his early 40’s at an above-average height at about 6′ 6″ and has a fit build. He is brimming with self-confidence and always holds his head high. When he speaks, he speaks loudly and clearly and never second-guesses himself. he has dark, short hair (around an inch long) with a cowlick in the front and I would describe it as “salt, and pepper”. He has a long face and a distinct jawline.

We talked this morning at the HPER Center. about muscle recovery and what I could be doing to better loosen up the tendons in my leg for a speedy recovery. He told me to apply icy hot throughout the day and to heat my leg before practices. He also brought in a muscle massager to break up and lactic acid that had built up.

We also talked about the upcoming assignments that I have due in my classes for next week and he asked me to send him a news assignment that I had done a few days back.

The Bat Mobile Brought to Life

November 10, 2019

A Chicago man has built his very own Bat Mobile. There are so many cool things about this car including an accurate shade of black, a real jet engine, and he decided to make it the accurate representation of the 1989 Tim Burton Batman movie! This guy really put the time and effort to create a really cool and life-like throwback supercar. Now that I’ve successfully shown the fact that I’m a comic book fanatic, let’s get to the article itself.

This story id a short read (which is nice). The writer does a good job of keeping it simple and understandable to your average reader. It also does a nice job of finding new things to talk about instead of giving us a redundancy of information as we find in some news writings. and for those of you that don’t want to spend the time and energy to read the article they include a 3 1/2 minute video that goes into even further details about how the car got built and even hidden features that normal cars can most definitely not do.

I suggest that you give this one a read because not many people are doing things like this (unless theres a camera in their face). It even talks about some technologies that were used that most people have no clue how to use.

Science Scavenger Hunt

November 5, 2019

Computers may be faster than you, but they’ll never be as intelligent.

Recent attempts to build a supercomputer brain, show evidence that they’ll never compare to the real thing. Why? Experts say it’s because brains simply don’t work like computers. 

Researchers explain that a conscious person is aware of what they are thinking and have the ability to stop thinking of that thing whenever they decide. A computer does not have this ability. 

Some researchers firmly believe that simulating neuroscience with computers is the answer. However, there are many that believe it is impossible because consciousness is simply not computable. 

The researcher’s efforts are now being shifted to try to fully understand how our brain works. If this is accomplished scientists believe they will then be able to recreate the human brain as an artificially intelligent brain. 

There have been projects in the past, but no one has been able to come up with a conclusion to the problem. 

Beginning back in 2013 a multi-billion-dollar European research project is understood to have ultimately failed. 

However, recently Microsoft announced that they will be putting one billion dollars towards research to come up with a solution to better understand what is really going on in our heads.    

“I Knew it in My Heart”

November 3, 2019

This one is a tear-jerker. This the story told by a woman who thought she had lost her husband in a war back in 1965, but he had different plans. She explains the emotions she was going through, struggling with the move to a new town, and how it was to raise her kids alone. This is the type of story that can make you feel encouraged if you’re having a rough day.

The article includes the full letter that her husband sent her to tell her that he was alive and well. It also goes through the entire interaction between her and the man who gave her the letter. It has its ups and downs but I highly recommend you take the time to read this article. The story itself is very well told by the woman. She explains in detail what she was feeling at each point in the story from extreme sadness to excitement and joy. Like I said before if you’re having a bad day, this just may turn it around if you have ten minutes to break and read this short true story.
