    There are many things that a person can do to improve themselves. In my case, I could lose some weight, and eat better. I could be kinder to people, and stop reading the news so much. I could spend more time with friends and family, and I could spend more time in nature. I think that if I did those things, I would be a better person. It’s not just me. I look around the world and see all kinds of things that could be improved with a modest amount of effort. The key here is the word “modest”. For...

  • Humans to download their SOULS onto microchips so they can ‘live FOREVER’

    PEOPLE will be able to download their “souls” onto microchips, implant it into another body and live forever, a technology expert has claimed. Richard Skellett, a founder of Digital Anthropologist and an expert for Future of Work, has warned of a future in which British workers have chips inserted underneath their skin. The process has already been trialled with company BioTeq fitting 150 implants in the UK. And Sweden-based firm Biohax told the Sunday Telegraph that it is in discussions with several British companies about microchipping. But as humans and machines become more in-sync, it could open up all sorts...

    David Stephenson, store manager of Cedar City Deseret Industries, promised his team that if they met their sales goals, he would run at least 200 loops around the roundabout outside of their office—and he would do it in his work clothes: a shirt, tie, and slacks. “Where I work, we train individuals to get better jobs,” he explained. “They all face different challenges in their lives, so I’m always looking for any opportunity to show them that you can do hard things, even if some thing seem impossible—or not the smartest thing to do, in my case—you can still accomplish...

    Australia Day looms on January 26th, which is a week from today New Hampshire time. But a week from today New Hampshire time Australia Day will have come and gone. In fact, it may already have come and gone: as the years go by, the Pacific time zones seem to gape and open up even vaster temporal space. So I thought we'd go a little Australian ahead of the big day, and pick a movie with the most prominent Aussie actress of our time. In private life Cate Blanchett is a near parodic limousine liberal ("Green before it was hip,...

Like I said, I do live in the South, and I work for the Federal Aviation Administration as a technician. And I am for President Trump building a wall. I think it’s necessary for our safety of our country. I do believe that. But I also feel that Representative Pelosi and him, they need to sit down and talk this out and don’t use the government’s workers as pawns. I mean, we should not be involved in it. That’s something...

    I thought this was worth sharing. It starts with Toby Keith playing golf with Clint Eastwood. That sets the stage. At one point, Eastwood said to Keith, I turn 88 on Monday. What are you going to do? Keith asked. I'm going to shoot a movie, Eastwood replied, with filming scheduled to begin the following week. What keeps you going? Keith asked him? I get up every day and don't let the old man in, Eastwood said. I'm writing this down right now, Keith replied. Keith didn't ask him if he could contribute a song, Keith just went home and...

    A new international sports team may have a supernatural boost: Vatican representatives announced last week that the city-state has launched a national track and field team. The group will start with about 60 members, pending official clearance and a health examination required by the Italian government, Father Melchor Jose Sanchez de Toca y Alameda, team president and the head of the Vatican’s sports department in the culture ministry, told Runner’s World. Those members range in age from 18 to 62, and have a variety of professions within the Vatican. “There’s all types of people—it cuts across the Vatican world. There...

    In many ways, Max is a typical 14-year-old. He eschews soft music in favour of rock and heavy metal, likes to wear hoodies, giggles when he’s nervous and has a flair for drawing animals. He can be opinionated and sarcastic one moment, shy and withdrawn the next. His insecurities, however, run deeper than run-of-the-mill teenaged angst. “I have a male brain that doesn’t match up with the body I’m in,” says the Grade 9, Surrey, B.C., student, who was the female gender at birth. “It’s like being trapped in a cage.” Max is now at the centre of a complicated...
