World Futures: Data / Information / Knowledge

on May 12, 2017 - 7:15am

For a 30 day period, every day at precisely 10 a.m. (or 10:00 or 1000 hrs.) Greenwich Mean Time, you record the temperature on the same thermometer at precisely the same location in both degrees Celsius and degrees Fahrenheit. You now have 30 data points.

On a piece of graph paper you label the bottom, horizontal axis from zero to 31. On the left side at the zero point you create a vertical Celsius scale and on the right side (at the 31 point) you create a Fahrenheit scale precisely synchronized to the Celsius scale. Then you plot the data.

I have heard a lot of people saying this bond would be an investment in future generations, to have more options, or that they just don’t want to travel to Santa Fe.
 
As a member of the future generation in Los Alamos, I am Voting no on the Rec Bond.
 
If investing in the community is someone’s goal then please invest in the housing problem; invest in making sure the future generation has the opportunity to have a roof over their heads and then and only then can anything else be considered.

Believe it or not, there is a lot that goes into designing a living room. Since I haven’t written much about it, I thought it would be the perfect time to start the conversation. This column will be written in several sections in the coming weeks. I will discuss getting started, a budget, floor planning, architectural details, storage and organization, décor and design, and hiring professionals.

Renovating your living room: It’s exciting, but it can be a bit overwhelming, too. Where should you start?

We attended the Cowboy Breakfast at the Los Alamos Posse Shack on May 7, 2017, and were delighted to see Los Alamos Police Commander Oliver Morris out there helping with the breakfast, talking to people, and being an enthusiastic supporter of Special Olympics.
 
This type of highly visible and constructive public interaction and community service by one of our Men and Women in Blue is precisely why I enjoy living in a small town like Los Alamos.
 
We are all, in one way or another, colleagues, friends, and neighbors working together in our own ways for the

Just One Thing To Do This Week: Establish A Little Discipline

My husband and I have three dogs. I have written about our dogs before. They are all boys, about 70 pounds each, and they think they are human beings. I don’t know where they got that idea. Actually, I do. From me. My bad.
