The Polygraph: The Proto-Photocopy Machine Machine Invented in 1803 That Changed Thomas Jefferson’s Life

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1JAZV5KNsc Today we associate the word polygraph mainly with the devices we call “lie detectors.” The unhidden Greek terms from which it originates simply mean “multiple writing,” which seems apt enough in light of all those movie interrogation scenes with their juddering parallel needles. But the first “polygraph machine” meriting the name long predates such cinematic clichés, and indeed cinema itself. Patented in 1803 by an Englishman named John Isaac H...

"We will not be intimidated…We are going to cl...

Trump Losses Keep Piling Up As Judge Smacks Down Campaign Lawsuit In PA

The Rebranding Of America

The Presidential campaign is over, but the campaign to restore America has just begun. People are the fabric of any democracy and the frayed narrative of our Union must be rewoven to include everyone. From the perspective of looking at brands as belief systems, there are several things that we need to consider. Our origin myth needs to emphasize the essential fact that we are a nation of immigrants. Whether our descendants wandered here thousands of years ago or were forced here against thei...

Driving a $430,000 Rolls-Royce Ghost reminded me that opulence has no limits and neither does my mediocrity

The Rolls-Royce Ghost. Alanis King The $330,000 Rolls-Royce Ghost sedan recently underwent a full redesign for the first time in 10 years, complete with starlight patterns twinkling across its ceiling and dashboard.  The car's Austin debut was my first time in a Rolls-Royce. My test car had a full $100,000 in optional features, bringing its sticker to $430,000. The experience was a clash of two realities: the Rolls-Royce I'd fabricated in my mind and the Rolls-Royce that surrounded me. Vis...

Dave Chappelle Delivered a Powerful, Hilarious Monologue in a Loose, Relieved ‘Saturday Night Live’

This weekend’s Saturday Night Live likely had to make a dramatic shift when the official news came through that Joe Biden was elected to become the 46th President of the United States of America. That means host Dave Chappelle had a lot of responsibility to react in his monologue as well, especially since four years ago he had to deal with the more somber news of Donald Trump being elected president in November 2016. Not only did Chappelle deliver a powerful, thoughtful, provocative, and hilari...

President Donald Trump Pool/Getty Images Do you see Donald Trump clapping politely at Joe Biden's Inauguration Day? Me neither. My bet is that after Biden wins and the GOP turns his back on him, Trump will ghost us. He can't face losing, so he'll probably go to Mar-a-Lago for Christmas and never come back.

... (if you listened to the whole thing live) and what it seemed as though he was saying. This speech was, I presume, intended to cause intense emotion, and I think it did. I got the feeling he was making wild accusations and that he ought instead to stay very closely connected to the evidence.  From the transcript of Donald Trump's press conference yesterday: The officials overseeing the counting in Pennsylvania and other key states are all part of a corrupt Democrat machine that you’ve writt...
