Visual Spatial Intelligence Test or who am I

I was a psychology major in the 90's and I need to note that time was sort of
in the pioneering days in psychology.

So being those times at college I did many test and had others test me being they
found me fascinating. My personality trait is plasticity! I change to needs and 
I'm entertaining in a challenge. If you put me in a challenge I will adapt to fix the issue.
Pull out a leaf blower and use where I shouldn't or kick over a 10 foot high pallet to 
stock the shelves. As I am working on one aisle my mind is already thinking what 
I have to do on the next aisle so when I get there I don't stand around like a 
dumbass. In the hotel business I was used as a emergency to "put the fire out"
to protect the hotels best interest. Hotels had people like that they called along with 
security in the 90's. In high school my friends came to me if they
had a problem. I gave them the answer or talking to me I said something that
turned on their light and they figured it out.

Or adaptive like in the morning after like being hit in the head with a ton of gold!
In the 90's realizing my date, a lady hair dresser, barfed that night on the date then 
took me to a gay bar, I'm not gay she's not gay, it was her security to go there,
she felt safe there and as it ends up there she is in the morning sleeping next to me
at her place with me looking at her thinking about all of this how did I get there when 
she farted in her sleep and being in a water bed I tried to not laugh because the bed 
would swoosh around and I know older cougars don't like to be suddenly woken up. 
So I adapted to her needs and I was ok it's a heck of a life experience for me!
But that is a good point of adaptation in my sort of plasticine personality.

Being adaptive is a good trait, but then comes the part of getting deeper into that.
Partly noted in like the Visual Spatial Intelligence Test - Mental rotation ability.
I am able to see in 3D! "Mental rotation is the ability to rotate mental representations
of two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects as it is related to the visual
representation of such rotation within the human mind."

It's a ability noted in drafting / engineering sometimes. As in seeing the diagram in 3D
on a flat surface. It's handy in everyday life. I do use it for my website when scrolling
fast through the page, I would see the placement of the links and know where the link
I was looking for is at, or where to put the link when working on it.

Also related like reading a book, or using the phone book. It's not that I see those
things in 3D but it's like a 3D tag so I know where it is that I am looking for.
It's hard to explain you need to try it yourself to understand what I am saying!
I know about where it is so from there I go by tag to find it.

Noted IQ is learning relating to problem solving. So you dump a big one on me
I resolve by thinking ahead going beyond my ability normally. 
Like I would put the issue in 3D, what relates to that issue with another issue related 
to each! Then add more! Like a copy and paste kind of thing in my head!
And I would place it as a shape with each side of the shape having a issue.
Yes I would fry if I spent a long time doing that so I don't.
And I don't do this everyday. It's is just something I do to push myself.

It's like a huge wave of amplitudes in the way I push myself in something like that.
Then I learn from that and my IQ just went up because I know something from 
the push that I did.

"The waves associated with, say a photon or a particle, does not tend to dissipate
in this way and remain confined to a region in space. To do this requires an infinite
number of frequencies in a narrow band"
So like in a narrow band I think hard if I push myself! I put what I am thinking about
in something like a confined place. Think about spark plugs. I can look at a spark plug
and see the shape or modification I did to it and see what the combustion would look like.
How open the plug is, what the blowout would be, where the flame front would be going 
confined in a combustion chamber, thinking 3D in my head. Then I dump myself into it!

It's not in a bipolar or other bad modulation ill type amplitudes of brain waves.
It's just normal thinking! But human is human I hit walls time to time and I stop.
When I don't know, I don't know! Looking at my own self I tend to see that I might 
spend a lot of my time in the Gamma waves!

But the point is don't think I am bragging, I am talking about me as in me being a
respected freak of nature. I know I am. There is nothing wrong with that!
It's just how I run! Not that I can help it, running my own OS in a way!
For others not like me please note I have too much background in my life
that I rely on like a database to relate to some question I would be pushed on.
You need to understand yourself and be who you are or see where you can be.
It's ok to push yourself, it's called growth. Get there and learn and grow.
Get fully tested, take a personality test. It helps you to understand yourself! 
It makes life fun!

"Let’s talk more about Plane:
Remember, by definition, Plane is a level of existence, thought, or development.
It really has no boundaries. I know it’s kind of heavy, but I think if we look at
this on simpler terms, the question from me to you is, do you let your mind play?"

The Visual Spatial Intelligence? Try it, it will blow your mind!

Love Don't Lie, Anytime

In polyamory love don't lie. I know I don't have to hide it. I know my
love for a married lady is real as for me I am better because of her.
I am not going to hide it. I'm not like that anyway. In hiding I know
it will come up on it's own and bite. Why do it? If you like a personal hell
then hide if not let it out! This is the way I am!

Love is for the better of all. I just want to be loved and that is from
me making her viverent, supported, norm! In that I get the same as
she is supported!

Why married? I dated a lady that barfed on the first date and
took me to a gay bar. Dated in high school a ex-runaway / teen prostitute.
Had a soulmate in the 90's that I was too stupid to know to keep.
She is now gay! My old lady / EX wife I am with now is a old lady, 25
years older than me. And health wise not good as she has a few
years to her life. So any past issues is past issues with her.
For me it's best to date a married lady not because of the pain of the
past... Not pain it's just more like it's not in the same plane!
As if it was there we all would still be there.

I love everyone but with me I found my plane a married lady.
I met her before I met her in 1996 in another town, ran in to her in the town I am
in now she almost ran me over once but I got on my knees to begged her to comeback.
She smiled and made a right turn. Ended up working with her, in the same building
and in the same room but she ended up quitting. So I am still here begging in a way!
There is a lot of love to beg a women that almost hit you with a car to come back!
I do love her and still beg to be taken home for that talk as I am for her best interest
for the better of her, she looses nothing... She's not crazy! Anytime!

This is a part of me pointing of my road pointing to being Poly to stop
the madness and love!

The growing rift, polyamory and needs

There is a shift these days. Either men are getting stupid or women are getting smarter!
This points to a difference in the need for emotional support, more
that one person can give. And as I have been thinking because of that and
sociological pressures it is clear there is a rift as the mindset is two to one for
a man to be on the same level of a women's mindset.

There is a difference noted by a EEG test. "Compared to men, women had a
significant (usually P < 0.01) increase in the parasagittal mean frequency
(1-30 Hz and 4-20 Hz), beta 1 and beta 2, while alpha 2 and theta-beta were
decreased." A small point of difference but shows a lot!

Or also noted from more research. "Ragini Verma, a researcher at the University
of Pennsylvania, said the greatest surprise was how much the findings supported old
stereotypes, with men's brains apparently wired more for perception and co-ordinated
actions, and women's for social skills and memory, making them better
equipped for multitasking."

Explaining the growth for Polyamory is in the growing difference between
men and women. "When it comes to smarts, women are catching up to men in some
areas and outpacing them in others, new research has found."

So how many guys does it take to be on the same level as a women,
as that level can tip easy? It's a question everyone married needs to ask.
Nothing good comes from a unsupported woman vs the term supported
it comes in the light of truth and openness because if it is not the lack of trust
defeats the point. A "crazy woman?" Well she is not crazy it's just that something
is making her that way. It's a missing need being unsupported.
Ask what is doing it and how do you fix it? What needs are missing?
What is good for you? Bring that in!

It's better to control your fears. To women fears is like a panicking lover
you need to control him, dominate him, to settle him down or your fears
will just run around panicking! It's a matter of fixing what it is!
And I do see this as a point for Polyamory or having a emotional affair.
It's not a bad thing! There is a big reason for the emotional need of them.
Because people do things for a reason, so the point would to be to make
better and in that is better for all.

A big point is to say, if it's not open then it's not for the better!
Secrets hurt so don't go there don't do that. There is a point to forgive
and make a new day. Because the new day holds it's value.
It's the power of the new love and support as the new partners
help and support each other pushing away from the bad past.
Making a new day together! If there is a emotional affair it would
be best to let it be known for the main partner.
It's best to be open and fair as it's about needs.
It is ok for a women to take over the marriage to fix her needs
as why would she live in her own personal hell going to the
craziness of crazy because she can't be who she is or get
the support to stop her hell! 

I also have to say like in being married for a long time a wife needs
time away from her husband or needs other support.
It's like granny with her sewing room being it makes her happy.
Not happy is crazy! Happy is bringing out the best in all!
And that is a good point about needs!

So the point is to be more open about things don't hide! It's ok to love
you just need to be fair to all about it. If it's for the better of the person
all would be better... Accept it because if it's love you can't hide it!

A little love goes

These are the times where we all need to go forward.
There is too much hate, hate, green eyes, green eyes
or what ever it is. If it don't help all it's bad!
Isn't life better all together treating everyone fair!

All the hate is just a point of like in history of history
repeating itself to a burned out end and life goes on
afterward without the haters because they burned up!

Like a big hoopla going on outside your house and in the morning
you go outside and there is a dead beaver with a banjo in the street
and you don't know why. Why ask why, it's only a issue to them
a whatever and life goes on to everyone else!

Terrorism everywhere really brings up the point from Oscar Wilde: 
"A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it."
I really is better to put away the false fears and show a little love to
take in the good! "Take it back, get it back..." with love...
isn't it time to get your love back?

What is

For those that may not know, my website from 1997 DuGBuG office (DuGBuG)
is sort of the same as here in the point of putting much that I know on line.
"My work, it is for the empowerment of people!"

"It is time! DuGBuG office urges the push for humanity because we
all are the same. You make the difference! This reflects this sites push for treating
everyone fairly. Do not judge people not knowing the road they are on in life,
what in their past put them there."

I come from a family of Pioneers on my mom / dad's side.
I have a NASA pioneer in my family that worked on cabin pressure for the
Apollo 1. Back in that time this was something that was never done before.
The fire haunted him for the rest of his life. But he knew this was all new stuff.

No one knew!

I also have more in my dad's side also that work at NASA.
And on mom's side a retired Ohio Capital University Professor.
My dad's dad worked on a oil platform at the North Sea oil, United Kingdom
and at others. My dad also was a oil engineer that designed oil pressure vessels and
other related things too many to say. On my dad's side also is a singer / musician for a
well known band in the 80's 90's etc. I also have a family member that worked in the
pharmaceutical industry, that worked on the team for Aleve in the early days.

I can go on and on but about me? I started my website in 1997 with my links page in
that helped people in countries that had a iron currant up with their internet as the
links page was off-line a first for the time and still now. I also made a
tool for the K-Meleon browser and later I had my version of it the
K-Meleon-db types. I did post on the Current TV website, I was doing
stories on a triad format three different stories with the same point in the end.
A first for the time. What I was doing got picked up on the MSNBC site for a time.
And in a way haunting me is the fact I worked with two of the 911 hijackers in a hotel.
I didn't know what was going to happen they all seemed normal. At one time
I was in the elevator with both of them alone. But it was the point of what if I knew?
We crossed paths but I picked up on nothing bad about them.
This is a push for me to better humanity. Thus the point of this blog and other works.
I push for the anti 911!

Life is not only about your journey it's about what you already have in you or
have for you. What you do in life earns your way in life and with the background
of people behind you supporting you will know it's ok to go forward in a new world.

And also nobody rides for free!

Also you need to know where your heart is taking you to, what is valued 

in your life!. Also why journey if you found it! 
In love you need life for a life to love! If you found love never let it go!

I also got to drive a zamboni in 1986? Because I asked the guy driving
it if I could drive it and he said yes. So I can say I drove one in my life!
So that was my journey, like me from 1987 at 18 in Colorado!

I need to note I almost fell down the peak as I free hand climbed on the 
side of the trail on the top. Believe it or not the wind blew me back in
balance where I could grab something. Those things happen to me a lot!

And me from the 70's!

Life is a journey with beautiful colors! Like being on a Plane (esotericism)
"In esoteric cosmology, a plane other than the physical plane is conceived as
a subtle state of consciousness that transcends the known physical universe."


"If your up to it, move a mountain, your a part of it, you deserve it!"

Accepting your wife for who she is crazy, but that ok

With divorce in the high ranges I see it as a lack of trust.
If you don't trust your wife because she is a crazy woman.
The question is to ask is what needs is she missing?
There is nothing wrong with a crazy wife other than not helping her to not be
that way! It's about her needs, caring, love, support and her smile from all that,
everyone would be happy because she would be happy!
Love, caring, support is not a one way street.
It would be like she is tutoring her others, all is good!

Carl Rogers emphasized accepting people for what they are, 
not for what you would like them be.

A husband should know he can't stop his wife's nature.
If she is crazy then you need to ask why? If you can't trust her why?
Because you can't change the problem if her needs are not being met,
the issue for the non trust will still pop up again and again!
It's a living hell for both! People in hell want ice and it's a matter of how long
will they will be waiting for the ice?

If you can't trust your wife, you are going to have to adapt to help and
find a best fit for the situation.

I know this is taboo but times are changing but looking at the nature of a woman.
Let your wife date a person that is long term if there is an issue the wife and
husband can't fix. Why?

It's a matter most women are poly by nature. They require a lot of emotional
support! If her needs are not met, it will be met somewhere else,
thus the main percent of the divorces going on today.
That is how women are! It would be better for a wife to date with the husband
knowing she is with him and not in the unknown.

For a wife to date it needs to be long term date so there is a trust!
That does have trust as a willingness to make it work the work and effort.
Effort as in love a desperate man in love with a married women and is willing
to be able to touch her emotionally be a good influence on her.
In a true light love her in wanting the best for her.
To hopefully point she is worth gold and worth the effort!
To be the healer to her! Knowing she is getting emotional support,
less stress on her of fighting off her husband wanting to control her and her being!
It saves the marriage as there is more support for her.

You just in a way push your wife to a supportive person.
"Do something with her she's driving me crazy!" But you get the point it's about
her needs! If she is happy then all would be happy! 

If you love her set her free, like a boomerang she will always come back to the
husband but as a better person. And that is the point her emotional needs being met,
so she would be not crazy!

And in real life it's not sex, sex, sex it's about talk, talk, talk! Support!

In the end why divorce or live in hell through the marriage?
Grow together! Fix her needs!

And a paranoid husband where is the trust there?
It's something to be looked at the lack of trust, shows the not giving a damn
about the wife's nature. Of course the husband can't trust her in that case
because she can't even trust him! So it all goes to the people wanting ice
in hell. Get out of the hell, work with the wife to best fit her nature!
One should not make a hell for the wife that has her nature,
that is not met! She fixes her problem and it would be best fix to
let her date so the husband knows!

It's ok for someone to love a married woman, love is support, trust and for the better
of the persons involved. When you love you want better for the other that is why
it's called love! You loose nothing and gain better!

*Looking at the issues of most divorces the main issue is needs not being met.
This story is in the light of a growing change, a readjustment of a marriage,
to save a marriage or to keep it sane. It's a common issue today with many!

Im saying not all women stressed in a marriage is crazy, but they could be going
crazy if their needs are not met, or acknowledged, I'm saying that is a time bomb
ready to go off and it needs to be looked at before the wife goes off!
There is a need to help the wife so she can be happy in her needs!

And if the relationship is a green light that it would be something like a
confidentiality, implied confidential relationships or nondisclosure agreements
it's common sense dur! Take him home, home will it be being it's long term!

Please do some reading!

A unhappy woman is fire thus the part getting ice in hell!
Unhappy women are hell believe me!

Waste water to flush out drug dealers

Many know that the EPA has sensors all over neighborhoods looking for people
dumping oil down the sink. But on the other end... There might be the same but
worse going on in the other pipe. No really!

To me this I see as a UN-American invasion of privacy. Fascist, over paranoid!
I need to note that kids in college chose to go to the college they went to and
they are paying for their education, so for the college they go to acting in a way
that invades their privacy is unheard of! There are issues of having a phone in class
vs the student that is paying for his classes having a right to have a phone in class
as it's the students cost to pay for the class but then also the college's view to protect
the test scores from cheating students using their phone vs the college to
protect it's State / government rating. But to spy on the students is bad!

This also might be going in in your town big or small! Is it more than you want
to know? NO, because it's your ass!

~~~~~Using waste water to flush out drug dealers
When they flush the toilet, most people don’t think about what happens next. But for several hundred students at a private university in Washington state five years ago, what happened next was that scientists spied on some of their most intimate personal details. The researchers identified times of stress, probed the ethics of the students and calculated how many of them were bending the rules by taking drugs to help them with their degrees. The students had no knowledge of this at the time. And they probably still don’t.

Likewise, the citizens of dozens of European cities have no idea that their sewage is being sifted through right now, officially to protect them; or that the police are studying the results to track crime. The toilet bowl and its contents, once extremely private, are becoming very public indeed. It’s called wastewater-based epidemiology. Improved sensing techniques and analysis have made the contents of sewers and waste pipes a powerful source of data. And where there are data, there are researchers. Because although people may tell lies, the urine they send down the drain rarely does. Around for a decade or so, this analysis of waste water has mostly been used to obtain information that people would prefer others did not have — their use of illegal drugs, chiefly. Drugs broken down in the body leave telltale traces of metabolites, some of which can be found, quantified and back-calculated to work out how much of the original substance was present. Combined with a reliable estimate of the number of people who have, well, contributed a sample to the sample, the analysis can offer guidance on average consumption and how it changes.

Some of the results are more worth noting than truly noteworthy. Cocaine use, unsurprisingly, peaks at the weekend. People in smaller towns and cities prefer amphetamines. And anyone watching the Netflix show Narcos — which chronicles the life and times of notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar — will be unsurprised to hear about the truly colossal amounts of cocaine that pass through the residents and into the waste water of the city of Medellín, Escobar’s one-time heartland.

Even the study that involved the Washington students merely seemed to confirm what most people already accept: healthy university students take prescription-only medicines as ‘smart drugs’ to try to boost their cognitive abilities at exam time (D. A. Burgard et al. Sci. Tot. Environ. 450–451, 242–249; 2013).
A paper in the journal Forensic Science International this month offers an intriguing new possibility. Swiss researchers describe how they hooked up with drug-enforcement investigators to use waste­water analysis to shed light on the structure of drug markets, the criminals who controlled them, and how much influence police operations had on supply (F. Been et al. Forensic Sci. Int. 266, 215–221; 2016). The results are not foolproof — analysis of cannabis metabolites is chemically tricky, for example, and cannot distinguish between all sources — but the study did report some successes.

Heroin use in Lausanne was estimated by measuring morphine in the sewers and subtracting what was known to have been prescribed medically. Between October 2013 and December 2014, the scientists estimated that average daily consumption of pure heroin in the city was 13 grams. During the study, the police arrested two dealers, and analysis of phone records and interviews with users suggested that the dealers sold about 6 grams a day between them — about half the total market. This supported police intelligence that heroin, unlike other drugs such as methamphetamine, was supplied by a small number of local dealers who could be effectively targeted. You can flush, but you can’t hide.

Ancient DNA Reveals Prehistoric Gene-Flow and...

My view I tend to stand with Stan Gooch and about the part we migrated together.
In life in the Prehistoric past there was connections and growth!

"Leaving aside at this time the issue of the numerous other human species
(how they interacted with one another, and what contributions they made to the
modern human lineage, remain open questions), Gooch believed that aggressive
and battle-skilled Cro-Magnons both massively exterminated some populations of
Neanderthals and also interbred with them. He wrote,
The genetic crossing of Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal produced not just (a) highly
gifted individuals (‘the mighty men of old, the men of renown’) but (b) an entirely 
new species of human – ourselves…. [T]his new product was… either entirely or
very largely due to Cro-Magnon men fertilising Neanderthal women – not the other
way around. These offspring would have been accepted into Cro-Magnon groups….
And so Neanderthal genes were introduced into the Cro-Magnon gene pool…"

And I get the point that we came from fish... Or at least our breathing air ability
came from such. Interesting!

And this brings up a good point we all seem to be missing on.
Growing together as a group keens to your own growth as
the many in our Prehistoric past adapts grows and does something
to make life better for themselves because the group is better off.
It's about Human Nature and our Nature as a whole!
The growth and acceptance of what is good for us!

In my family (Mom's side of the family alone) from a DNA test it is noted
we came from...

Africa -- less than 1%: - Northern Africa -- less than 1%
Europe -- 97%: - Great Britain -- 50% - Europe West -- 35%
Ireland -- 8% - Finland/Northwest Russia -- 1%
Iberian Penisula -- 1% - Europe East -- less than 1%
Scandinavia -- less than 1% - West Asia -- 2%:
Caucaus -- 1% - Middle East -- less than 1%
So you can see the point we all are alike in the view of our DNA.
And also to love and take in no matter who or what it's our diverse
branching out of taking in no matter who they are, makes us who we are!

~~~~~Ancient DNA Reveals Prehistoric Gene-Flow from Siberia in the Complex Human Population History of North East Europe


North East Europe harbors a high diversity of cultures and languages, suggesting a complex genetic history. Archaeological, anthropological, and genetic research has revealed a series of influences from Western and Eastern Eurasia in the past. While genetic data from modern-day populations is commonly used to make inferences about their origins and past migrations, ancient DNA provides a powerful test of such hypotheses by giving a snapshot of the past genetic diversity. In order to better understand the dynamics that have shaped the gene pool of North East Europeans, we generated and analyzed 34 mitochondrial genotypes from the skeletal remains of three archaeological sites in northwest Russia. These sites were dated to the Mesolithic and the Early Metal Age (7,500 and 3,500 uncalibrated years Before Present). We applied a suite of population genetic analyses (principal component analysis, genetic distance mapping, haplotype sharing analyses) and compared past demographic models through coalescent simulations using Bayesian Serial SimCoal and Approximate Bayesian Computation. Comparisons of genetic data from ancient and modern-day populations revealed significant changes in the mitochondrial makeup of North East Europeans through time. Mesolithic foragers showed high frequencies and diversity of haplogroups U (U2e, U4, U5a), a pattern observed previously in European hunter-gatherers from Iberia to Scandinavia. In contrast, the presence of mitochondrial DNA haplogroups C, D, and Z in Early Metal Age individuals suggested discontinuity with Mesolithic hunter-gatherers and genetic influx from central/eastern Siberia. We identified remarkable genetic dissimilarities between prehistoric and modern-day North East Europeans/Saami, which suggests an important role of post-Mesolithic migrations from Western Europe and subsequent population replacement/extinctions. This work demonstrates how ancient DNA can improve our understanding of human population movements across Eurasia. It contributes to the description of the spatio-temporal distribution of mitochondrial diversity and will be of significance for future reconstructions of the history of Europeans.

Author Summary

The history of human populations can be retraced by studying the archaeological and anthropological record, but also by examining the current distribution of genetic markers, such as the maternally inherited mitochondrial DNA. Ancient DNA research allows the retrieval of DNA from ancient skeletal remains and contributes to the reconstruction of the human population history through the comparison of ancient and present-day genetic data. Here, we analysed the mitochondrial DNA of prehistoric remains from archaeological sites dated to 7,500 and 3,500 years Before Present. These sites are located in North East Europe, a region that displays a significant cultural and linguistic diversity today but for which no ancient human DNA was available before. We show that prehistoric hunter-gatherers of North East Europe were genetically similar to other European foragers. We also detected a prehistoric genetic input from Siberia, followed by migrations from Western Europe into North East Europe. Our research contributes to the understanding of the origins and past dynamics of human population in Europe.

The absence of strong structure in the present-day mtDNA gene pool of NEE stands in contrast to the variety of languages and cultures, and to the complex history of how and when these were formed. Modern mtDNA data does not resolve the origins of the Saami either. Our aim was to provide answers to these questions and reconstruct events in the genetic history of NEE by generating and analyzing ancient DNA (aDNA) data from prehistoric human remains collected in northwest Russia. In particular, our objective was to characterize the genetic relationships between hunter-gatherer populations in NEE and Central/Northern Europe and to estimate the genetic legacy of ancient populations to present-day NEE and Saami. The oldest samples were collected in the Mesolithic graveyards of Yuzhnyy Oleni Ostrov (aUz; ‘Southern Reindeer Island’ in Russian) and Popovo (aPo), both dated around 7,000–7,500 uncalibrated. yBP, uncal. yBP. The sites of aUz and aPo are located along one of the proposed eastern routes for the introduction of Saami-specific mtDNA lineages. Results from odontometric analyses suggested a direct genetic continuity between the Mesolithic population of Yuzhnyy Oleni Ostrov and present-day Saami.
We also analyzed human remains from 3,500 uncal. yBP site Bol'shoy Oleni Ostrov (aBOO; ‘Great Reindeer island’ in Russian) in the Kola Peninsula. This site is located within the area currently inhabited by the Saami. We compared the ancient mtDNA data from NEE with a large dataset of ancient and modern-day Eurasian populations to search for evidence of past demographic events and temporal patterns of genetic continuity and discontinuity in Europe.

~~~~~At least 20% of Neanderthal DNA Is in Humans
At least one-fifth of the Neanderthal genome may lurk within modern humans, i
nfluencing the skin, hair and diseases people have today, researchers say.

Although modern humans are the only surviving human lineage, other groups of early
humans used to live on Earth. The closest extinct relatives of modern humans were the
Neanderthals, who lived in Europe and Asia until they went extinct about 40,000 years ago.
The ancestors of modern humans diverged from those of Neanderthals between 550,000
and 765,000 years ago.

Recent findings revealed that Neanderthals interbred with ancestors of modern humans
when modern humans began spreading out of Africa perhaps about 40,000 to 80,000
years ago, although some research suggests the migration began earlier.
About 1.5 to 2.1 percent of the DNA of anyone outside Africa is Neanderthal in origin.

However, scientists reasoned that the Neanderthal DNA found in one person might not
be the same Neanderthal DNA of someone else.

A Whistle-Blower Accuses the Kochs in Arkansas Town

In my town there is a Koch, Georgia-Pacific. Most workers that I talked to say you
should not plan to work there for a long time being they will find anything
to let you go so they don't have to pay for benefits. And I know the point to
"have it fresh" worker wise. For me I wonder if it's because of chemical exposure?!
Sick workers expose the wrongdoings of the workplace.

~~~~~A Whistle-Blower Accuses the Kochs of “Poisoning” an Arkansas Town
In June, Koch Industries, the conglomerate owned by the billionaires Charles and David Koch, launched a new corporate public-relations campaign called “End the Divide,” to advance the notion that Koch Industries is deeply concerned by growing inequality in America. An ad for the campaign urges viewers to “look around,” as an image of an imposing white mansion is replaced by one of blighted urban streets. “America is divided,” an announcer intones, with “government and corporations picking winners and losers, rigging the system against people, creating a two-tiered society with policies that fail our most vulnerable.”

The message was surprising, coming from a company owned by two of the richest men in the world, who have spent millions of dollars pushing political candidates and programs that favor unfettered markets and oppose government intervention on behalf of the poor. But no trouble appeared to have been spared in the commercial’s creation. It features a cast of downtrodden Americans of all colors and creeds. To portray corporate greed, it includes a shot of a Wall Street sign, followed by a smug businessman looking down at the camera, dressed in a flashy suit and tie. But, according to Dickie Guice, who worked as a safety coördinator at a large Koch-owned paper plant in Arkansas, the company need not have gone to such lengths. Instead of scouting America for examples of social neglect, the Kochs could have turned the cameras on their own factory.

This summer, Guice decided to speak out about the paper mill in Crossett, a working-class town of some fifty-two hundred residents ten miles north of the Louisiana border.* The mill is run by the paper giant Georgia-Pacific, which has been owned by Koch Industries since 2005. According to E.P.A. records, it emits more than 1.5 million pounds of toxic chemicals each year, including numerous known carcinogens. Georgia-Pacific says that it has permits to operate the mill as it does, and disputes that it is harming local health and safety. But as far back as the nineteen-nineties, people living near the plant have described noxious odors and corrosive effluents that have forced them to stay indoors, as well as what seems to them unusually high rates of illness and death. Speaking by phone from his home, in Sterlington, Louisiana, Guice pointed the finger directly at the mill’s owners, and described a corporate coverup of air and water pollution that he says is “poisoning” the predominantly African-American community.

Guice made his début as a whistle-blower in a new documentary film, “Company Town,” about the pollution of Crossett, which premièred in June at the L.A. Film Festival. Natalie Kottke-Masocco, the film’s director, and Erica Sardarian, its co-director, spent some five years in Crossett, and over time they coaxed Guice to go on camera. “I was warned that I’d never get hired again,” he told me, when I asked why he was coming forward. “But I thought, What the heck, what are they going to do, kill me? It had to be done.”

As Guice tells it, he started working at the Crossett plant in February, 2011, when Larco Inc., a local heavy-equipment and construction firm, where he worked, was contracted by Georgia-Pacific to handle disposal of the paper plant’s waste. According to Guice, the contract called for his company to spread two hundred thousand cubic yards of “ash” dredged from the Georgia-Pacific paper mill’s sediment ponds across four hundred acres of property that it owned in the town. He says that Georgia-Pacific supervisors told him to spread the waste in layers in pits that were sometimes forty feet deep, and then to cover it with six inches of dirt, “so that it looked like a regular piece of land.” The land often flooded, Guice told me, and runoff would flow into trenches that fed into a local creek, which ran behind a residential area. He said that Georgia-Pacific would also dump “big plastic tanks” of untreated liquid waste. “It looks like brown liquor,” he said. “And steam comes up from it, sometimes all day.” Within a few months of starting at the paper plant, Guice said that he fell ill from exposure to the waste, developing respiratory problems. “My doctor told me to get out of there,” he said. “But I needed that job.”

After a year, Guice, who has a certification from the Occupational Safety & Health Administration in environmental safety, was promoted to the position of safety coördinator, again as a Larco contractor to Georgia-Pacific. In his new post, he was given air-quality monitoring equipment, which he told me showed “deadly levels of hydrogen sulfide,” a foul-smelling, colorless gas that has proven carcinogenic to rats and mice. Guice took measurements in the morning, midday, and evening, and documented them all. When he told the Georgia-Pacific supervisors that he was getting readings so high that they indicated a potential for immediate illness and death, he says the company blamed his equipment. After he protested this, they offered to build a roof over the fields where the waste was being spread, but he told them that this would be like building a toxic gas chamber. “They told me it was my problem. They knew it was dangerous, but their attitude was: keep your mouth shut, do the job, and don’t get in anyone’s business,” according to Guice. Eventually, a company official took her own readings, which he says confirmed his own. At this point, the company decided to build a huge stainless-steel chain-link fence around the perimeter of its property, “so you can’t see where the work is,” he told me. Once he was able to get employment elsewhere, Guice, who had been contacted by the filmmakers behind “Company Town,” decided to blow the whistle.

Alpha's don't age well but...

This is something covered in developmental psychology
about a aging Alpha type. Alpha's don't handle the issues
of aging well! The issue is like in a Alpha female life is
harder and more stressful so aging is pushed faster.
But the point is her reaction to society's view of a elder
Alpha as she looses her Alpha in that she will as she gets
old. People look at elders as people that need help and
can't think for themselves, they become invisible!

So that Alpha can be no longer and if she keeps as a Alpha she will normally be
seen as just a crazy old lady and in a way forced to be more sedated to fit in
with society. Life is a personal hell for a aging Alpha. The Alpha needs to be aware
of this! This is those things that needs to be talked about to keep in mind knowing
it will happen. There is a lot to talk about and it is appropriate to get the support
one needs to deal with life. "No Alpha is a island!" This is something that needs
to be talked about sometime! Now there is a lot to talk about!
Alpha's can be prone to premature aging but also Alpha's do seek out more
support to de-stress also. And I would say this is needed more regardless.

But supported, loved the Alpha lives longer. An Alpha also needs to know who they are!
Alpha do what Alpha does! An Alpha does things that they can't really help.
So there is a higher need for self-control but that does not stop actions.
It's not in reality that a Alpha can totally have self-control. If a Alpha female knows a
male is good for her she will bulldoze the male to gain support.
This is just a part of our human nature it goes to the caveman days.
Just a part relating to our Id and that is not a bad thing!
It's best to accept your Alpha's needs. Alpha's don't fit in a closet!!!
It's a matter to a Alpha being happy or upset it's about the needs of the Alpha!

~~~~~Are Alpha Females Healthier Than Their Counterparts?
Alpha females have intrinsic characteristics—aside from being competitive, controlling, 
and more aggressive, they are also born healthier, more energetic, and more resilient.
Sure, alphas can get themselves into more stressful situations by virtue of being more 
dominant and on the front lines at all times, which in turn make them more vulnerable 
to personal attacks. Alphas get to have more head-to-head physical, emotional, 
and intellectual confrontations. Their innate ability to endure frontal assaults may
exceed others’ genetic capabilities to sustain stress itself.

Have you ever watched a frontal collision between two alpha females?
Would you be able to endure the pounding of direct blows over and over again or
would you prefer to stick your head in the sand? There is a wide range of qualities
among alphas: “Some alphas are more alpha than others.” The political debates exemplify
a combination of the ability to show dominance while simultaneously showing
intelligence, assertiveness, and the power to invite others to follow through
charismatic attraction. 

The personality mix that helps at certain times in politics or in business may signify the 
demise of a successful career at another time. An alpha who has trained herself yes, 
even alphas can be trained—to be more flexible, inclusive, and collaborative will be wise 
to choose when to be more direct and dominant, as compared to when to be more 
cooperative and open to alternatives. 

These are some strategies to continue to prevail while handling stress more effectively:
1.    Understand your talent and focus on developing some flexibility:
Alphas strive to be on top and dominate. These traits are excellent if you want to pursue
a career in which you are the boss and master-of-the-universe. This leadership style
prevailed decades ago, but our current corporate and political environments tend to
frown at a “Because I said so” attitude. If you are an entrepreneur who begins,
maintains, and finishes all projects on your own command, this may work.
However, unless you are a C-level executive who is hired to cut off heads and
leave every eighteen to twenty-four months, bloody bodies spread everywhere, 
after the battle is over to fight another similar battle somewhere else you may
benefit from learning more consensus-building and mediation-driven style.
This flexibility will add some marketable qualities to your business life and may even
extend your life span by years. Getting along with others better will reduce your stress.

2.    Add complementary physical exercises: Of course you participate in triathlons
and all sorts of hard-core physical competitions. Or maybe you are on your third trip
to climb Mount Everest. The adrenaline-driven feeling of pure dominance over your
body and physiology is unmatchable. And yet, you may want to add some other
exercises to your repertoire: instead of pushing your heart rate to the max while you
are training for a marathon, try swimming slowly for an hour. Instead of cranking up
your energy with caffeine-rich products prior to a workout, how about trying
Yoga or Tai-Chi? Your first reaction to these suggestions is: “No way!” I know,
I work with alphas all the time and yet, I have found that once alphas allow
themselves to slow down sometimes and enjoy the calmness of just being at peace,
their eyes open wide as they see the world through a different prism for the first time,
away from their regular rushing to the next activity. Although Type A personality
is vulnerable to cardiovascular disorders both men and women alike and we are
making a leap here to suggest Type A and alphas share some common traits, 
women benefit from additional protection in their cardiovascular systems as
compared to men. However, it will be helpful to continue to find effective ways to
stress less and relax more.

3.    Practice empathy: I know you are upset: your Chairman or Chairwoman
fired you over the phone. Avoid calling your boss, client, or colleague
“idiot, stupid, or doofus.” Spitting out hurtful words when you feel dissed only
diminishes your own power not to mention burning bridges with people who may
otherwise respect you for your leadership skills. Women are perceived as more
empathic and collaborative in general. However, we are also seen as more
emotional and moody as well. As controlling as you may like to be of others,
learning to exert self-control will add to a powerful repertoire of being an alpha. 
You may tend to respond to a perceived attack by attacking directly if you feel
vulnerable and, while you want to exert dominance and show you are the head
honcho, it gets tiring to lash out and protect your turf all the time.
While people respect leadership, people hate feeling bullied. In the end, while the
thirst for ambition may oust a great leader, competitors will jump in and 
destroy the bully at the first sign of perceived vulnerability. Learning to tune-in
to your followers will make you a more effective leader and it will help you
manage your stress better too.

4.    Transition power; allow other alphas to join you: Your persistent stamina,
amazing focus, and dominant track record speak for itself. At the same time,
what worked thirty years ago is outdated today. Even if you are obstinate and you
want to avoid change to remain in power at all costs, look around and identify
other alphas who may be able to continue your legacy or create one of their own.
It is difficult to let go of your power even in the face of life-threatening 
illnesses, as in Steve Jobs’ decision to forego his position as Apple CEO.  
You want to seal the values that inspired you in your creation while allowing new
ideas to come to existence in the future.

5.    Enjoy: The feeling of power can be exhilarating and addictive.
Feeling healthy, balanced, and well is an extraordinary characteristic of alphas.
Find ways in which you can continue to enjoy your multiple activities while keeping
quality down time. Avoid using stimulants to push you to perform and produce at
the highest level during times when you feel down or overwhelmed by activities.
Avoid using alcohol to calm you down if you are too hyped up. Learn other meditation
and relaxation techniques and practice them daily. Look around and ensure you are
including quality time for your family and friends, and enjoy every bit of your 
relationships. By the end of the day, it is your love for others and their love in return
that you take with you at the end of your journey.

Fire Into You

A good question to ask is where are you in your life?
Are you a prisoner? You can have a better life!
Life is better with openness to be open with me, you or
where you should! Bring it out of you! That is the heart to the matter.

I am open so for me people can be open with me because
I will understand it! I want freedom for people because life is short.
It frustrates me when you give it everything you got but it bounces off their
head as it goes unrecognized. Not knowing what is gold, the best
thing for you! As in me hitting my head trying to break through in
love with a married lady that I met before I met. Needing to talk being
the odds of how we all ended up in a entanglement.
I accept it being I know this thing is bigger than all of us!
It's worth the fire, the pain, I will never give up as I can't being
how long that road goes and the crossing paths over and over!

This brings up the point of bring out your innermost feelings.
That is better than being in your closet! I agree we all need a archaic revival
because the paradigm today is not working! And that is what this story is about.
Being open as for me I really have no choice to be anyway!
Love is the ruler reaching out for it's other! Needing it's other saying
"I'm so into you!" Missing my dominant... That road goes both ways.. True!

Math is racist and the dog in the grill

It's about the math in life you may not use it but they sure do out there,
without you knowing it most of the time.

For me in the 90's I worked at a hotel and found out they
had a dead peasant insurance policy on me when HR talked to me
wanting to know why they where spending so much on me a 1.5 million
policy. That is not big now but back in 1990 it was big!
At the time I was the second highest in my state.
My co-workers called me a dead man walking! And I am still here!
And I also have to note it helped me get jobs being the cost they where
paying for the insurance! It showed value!

Also bad is unknown's, those things that are that unknown when they
come back later it's funny as hell! I had a co-worker that was
micro criticizing me as in she didn't like the way I ate, didn't like the
way I sat in the chair, didn't like the way I sneezed etc...
She was bipolar or OCD or something. Many workers knew she was
messed up and many got annoyed to the point most of the workers
sat in the break room once with bags of chips during lunch.
When she came in there everyone grabbed a chip and crunched
at the same time. The room was loud and it was all at the
same time. CRUNCH... CRUNCH... CRUNCH... etc.
She was just standing there with her eyes wide open, in a personal hell!
She ran to HR and we all ran for it!

She kept a note pad with her a lot and I am sure she wrote what happened down.
One day she was on me again so I let her have as much BS as she could take.
I told her I cooked a dog on a grill, I just threw him in there and shut the lid fast.
He yelled a lot and the dog was ok a bit fatty but not that bad. I went on and
on until she told me no more all the time she was writing it down.
I thought I burned her out finally, Keep in mind the view in the 90's about
workers that where like that was to "let the crazies be crazy can't make them not."
They will burn out and leave sometime just hang in! Well she finally did.

What I didn't know was she took what I said to the NLRB and it ended up
being put to one of those unknown files tagged to me. I only found out five or so
years later when I went for another job the interviewer the boss saw the
background check file. He asked me if I cooked a dog! LOL!
He told me it sounded like I was a killer and he was wondering why I
was running loose but he figured it was BS when he got to the part of
the dog. I told him what I did and he told me the lady sounds like she
had problems!

The point of that? Well there are things out there you don't know about.
Like the math of things! Like having a credit check along for a job interview.
That is bad if you are poor because it takes money to have credit.
If you can't afford it don't get it! Or you try to get it but the banks underwriter
says "Sorry your income is too low!" so you don't get it and get no credit!

Life is crappy, but to ask did you need it anyway? Live within your means!
I do without and life is good without the hoopla! I know they will have to raise
the pay you can't have most of us wiping out their stores staying home doing without.

~~~~~Math is racist: How data is driving inequality
In a new book, "Weapons of Math Destruction," Cathy O'Neil details all the ways that math is essentially being used for evil (my word, not hers).

From targeted advertising and insurance to education and policing, O'Neil looks at how algorithms and big data are targeting the poor, reinforcing racism and amplifying inequality.

These "WMDs," as she calls them, have three key features: They are opaque, scalable and unfair.

Denied a job because of a personality test? Too bad -- the algorithm said you wouldn't be a good fit. Charged a higher rate for a loan? Well, people in your zip code tend to be riskier borrowers. Received a harsher prison sentence? Here's the thing: Your friends and family have criminal records too, so you're likely to be a repeat offender. (Spoiler: The people on the receiving end of these messages don't actually get an explanation.)

The models O'Neil writes about all use proxies for what they're actually trying to measure. The police analyze zip codes to deploy officers, employers use credit scores to gauge responsibility, payday lenders assess grammar to determine credit worthiness. But zip codes are also a stand-in for race, credit scores for wealth, and poor grammar for immigrants.

O'Neil, who has a PhD in mathematics from Harvard, has done stints in academia, at a hedge fund during the financial crisis and as a data scientist at a startup. It was there -- in conjunction with work she was doing with Occupy Wall Street -- that she become disillusioned by how people were using data.
"I worried about the separation between technical models and real people, and about the moral repercussions of that separation," O'Neill writes.

She started blogging -- at -- about her frustrations, which eventually turned into "Weapons of Math Destruction."

One of the book's most compelling sections is on "recidivism models." For years, criminal sentencing was inconsistent and biased against minorities. So some states started using recidivism models to guide sentencing. These take into account things like prior convictions, where you live, drug and alcohol use, previous police encounters, and criminal records of friends and family.

These scores are then used to determine sentencing.
"This is unjust," O'Neil writes. "Indeed, if a prosecutor attempted to tar a defendant by mentioning his brother's criminal record or the high crime rate in his neighborhood, a decent defense attorney would roar, 'Objection, Your Honor!'"

But in this case, the person is unlikely to know the mix of factors that influenced his or her sentencing -- and has absolutely no recourse to contest them.

Or consider the fact that nearly half of U.S. employers ask potential hires for their credit report, equating a good credit score with responsibility or trustworthiness.

This "creates a dangerous poverty cycle," O'Neil writes. "If you can't get a job because of your credit record, that record will likely get worse, making it even harder to work."

This cycle falls along racial lines, she argues, given the wealth gap between black and white households. This means African Americans have less of a cushion to fall back on and are more likely to see their credit slip.
And yet employers see a credit report as data rich and superior to human judgment -- never questioning the assumptions that get baked in.

In a vacuum, these models are bad enough, but O'Neil emphasizes, "they're feeding on each other." Education, job prospects, debt and incarceration are all connected, and the way big data is used makes them more inclined to stay that way.

"Poor people are more likely to have bad credit and live in high-crime neighborhoods, surrounded by other poor people," she writes. "Once ... WMDs digest that data, it showers them with subprime loans or for-profit schools. It sends more police to arrest them and when they're convicted it sentences them to longer terms."

In turn, a new set of WMDs uses this data to charge higher rates for mortgages, loans and
insurance. So, you see, it's easy to be discouraged.
And yet O'Neil is hopeful, because people are starting to pay attention. There's a growing community of lawyers, sociologists and statisticians committed to finding places where data is used for harm and figuring out how to fix it.

She's optimistic that laws like HIPAA and the Americans with Disabilities Act will be modernized to cover and protect more of your personal data, that regulators like the CFPB and FTC will increase their monitoring, and that there will be standardized transparency requirements.

And then there's the fact that these models actually have so much potential.
Imagine if you used recidivist models to provide the at-risk inmates with counseling and job training while in prison. Or if police doubled down on foot patrols in high crime zip codes -- working to build relationships with the community instead of arresting people for minor offenses.

You might notice there's a human element to these solutions. Because really that's the key. Algorithms can inform and illuminate and supplement our decisions and policies. But to get not-evil results, humans and data really have to work together.

"Big Data processes codify the past," O'Neil writes. "They do not invent the future. Doing that requires moral imagination, and that's something only humans can provide."
