At the beginning of the day Monday, I found out all teachers and students were having an assembly during 2nd block. Now that is not to say I wasn’t notified before then; it is to say that is when I found out. Regardless, I was aghast, because I had devout plans for my 2nd period class - plans that could not be changed, or in the very least, should not be changed. My robot brain refuses to compromise in times like these.

Charlie severely injured his back on the job and took to booze -- a welcomed friend and deceptive enemy -- to help him through his pain and suffering. And, while he ultimately recovered from his back injury, for which he received a Workman's Compensation award, Charlie found himself with a drinking problem -- he found himself drinking between drinks. The result? While Charlie may have been the happiest guy on the job, he was also the most inefficient man on the job and was fired.
What began with one anonymous donor wanting to help Pulaski County Detention Center inmates give their children gifts for Christmas has grown into a mission to help families struggling with addiction give their children a great holiday experience.
Artificial intelligence is an area of computer science that promotes the creation and utilization of intelligent machines toward their working order being as effective as a human’s intelligence. There are scores of self-described authorities on AI’s definition, but this description is as useful as any for us today. The premise that such computer scientists work from is that, eventually, they will be able to create machines that can in fact mimic the human thought process. I’m not 100% sold since we don’t fully comprehend, or know, how the human thought process plays out. There’s much that we do know, but a great deal of that is still theoretical. Find me a peer-reviewed scholar who can cogently explain love, or memory loss, or how humor affects thought, and I might be able to buy into the fact that other smarties can make computers do the same.

Throughout the week I typically have a variety of activities and household chores I try to take care of before I head into work in the evenings.
It is 5:35 in the morning. It is too early to be at school, so I’m sitting at my desk at home. As I type away on my keyboard, I notice my Han Solo action figure standing stolid beside the screen. He is similar to the Batman bobble head that keeps vigil at work. I always liked Han Solo, the rebel with a cool car -in his case, the Millennium Falcon.
