How to Understand Your Dog's Facial Expressions

  Guest Author: James Woller  As humans, we have the innate ability to understand what other people – even strangers – may be thinking and feeling simply by examining their facial expressions.  The human brain is capable of analyzing the combination of eyes, nose, mouth, and facial muscles to make a rapid assessment of a person's feelings. Despite spending so much time with our dogs, and despite our dogs having basically the same facial elements as our own, most people would say that their dog ...

The James Bond Shower: A Shot of Cold Water for Health and Vitality

As a kid, I was a big James Bond fan. Saw all the movies and read all the books. One thing I noticed about the book version of James Bond was that every time he took a shower, he would start off with the water nice and hot, and then turn it down to cold for the last few minutes. Perhaps this little detail of Bond’s personal bathing regimen was a subtle way for Ian Fleming to illustrate Bond’s Scottish ancestry, as this type of shower is commonly known as a “Scottish Shower.” Who knows. Being a...

we movie to canada: wmtc annual movie awards, 2018-19 edition

Time to change things up. I've (finally) gotten tired of my silly movie award categories, and need a change. I decided to go with a conventional one-to-five rating scale. But I wanted to use a good symbol, something other than stars (too common), thumbs-up (too cliched) or a maple leaf (too patriotic). I'm using a symbol that's very meaningful to me. (To be honest, it was between ☮ and this, but I could only get the peace sign to work in Blogger.)Here are the movies and series I watched between ...

How did Mumbai Indians top the table in IPL 12 after basically being rubbish in IPL 11?

Rohit Sharma (all images via YouTube) Okay, first of all, let it be known that we’ve taken an editorial position on something. We’ve decided to refer to each season of the IPL by what number IPL it is rather than the year in which it took place. Our reasoning is this: who honestly knows what year it is? The argument you’re about to make is that we’re hardly likely to know what IPL season it is either. This is true, but we’re also much less likely to hazard a guess. In short...

A 30-mph e-bike to compete with cars in cities? Investors just bet $20 million on it

Bird and Lime are scooting along, backed by hundreds of millions in venture capital. But there are still plenty of companies hoping to dominate the still-nascent micro mobility market, given what huge financial opportunity it promises. Among them: Bond Mobility, a three-year-old Palo Alto, Calif.- and Zurich, Switzerland-based startup that says its “high-performance” dockless electric bikes will leave e-scooters in the dust. Investors think the company might be right — at least, they think it mi...

This founder once tried to compete with Android and iOS. Now, he's taking on Uber and Lyft with a new e-bike startup that just raised $20 million. (LYFT)

Bond Mobility announced Wednesday it raised $20 million in Series A funding from DENSO's New Mobility Group, which includes Toyota and Softbank. Bond Mobility cofounder Kirt McMaster was ousted as CEO of his last startup, Cyanogen, in the wake of reports the company exaggerated its success and misled investors. McMaster told Business Insider that speed e-bikes solve the last-mile problem in urban and suburban centers better than e-bikes and scooters currently on the market. According to McMa...

Your Life Explained Through Dopamine

With most women [James Bond’s] manner was a mixture of taciturnity and passion. . . . He found something grisly in the inevitability of the pattern of each affair. The conventional parabola—sentiment, the touch of the hand, the kiss, the passionate kiss, the feel of the body, the climax in the bed, then more bed, then less bed, then the boredom, the tears, and the final bitterness—was to him shameful and hypocritical. Even more he shunned the mise-en-scène for each of these acts in the play—th...

Bond 25

I am indeed a huge Bond fan, have been one my whole life, so you can imagine my excitement this week when I learned that they were going to have a live stream to announce details about the upcoming Bond film, 25th in the series.

What did we did we find out Bond ...

Argument analysis: Employment discrimination law’s “natural experiment”

As it turns out, oral argument in Fort Bend County v. Davis was not the most headline-grabbing Title-VII-related news emanating from the Supreme Court yesterday. Disagreement among the justices seemed relatively muted as they wrestled with whether the requirement that employment discrimination plaintiffs present their claims to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission before filing lawsuits is a jurisdictional prerequisite or merely a claim-processing rule.

Barr Decides Asylum Seekers Who Show Credible Fear Won’t Be Eligible For Bond

California’s DMV crisis could make or break Gavin Newsom

Ambitious politicians like to dazzle us with what Hollywood screenwriters call “high concept” pitches that reduce complex ideas to a few succinct words. Gavin Newsom is certainly an ambitious politician and is extraordinarily oriented toward high-concept gestures. His latest emerged during a quick trip to El Salvador last week, ostensibly to learn why so many Salvadorans are making arduous treks to the U.S.-Mexico border, hoping to gain asylum. Newsom floated the notion that he and California ca...
