in a daze
I've been wandering around all day today muttering things under my breath like, "That's not a resh, you idiot, that's a final kaf". I've got Hebrew this afternoon, and it do weigh on my mind a mite. I regret posting that thing yesterday about Mr. Boy. It's not that big a deal. I was being overly dramatic. Forget I said anything. In my Understanding Congregations and Agencies class today, we looked at the U.S. Census information for the past few years to learn how to find our way around local neighborhoods. First off, I had no idea there was such detailed info out there about local communities, for anyone to access. Second, I think it'll be really interesting to find out more about a congregation's make-up based on this information. Of course, some congregations are problematic, because the members don't live in the immediate geographic neighborhood. The definition of "neighborhood" is a bit vague. As am I. I'm posting right now from the library computer room that some people are ...

after isabel
I am blogging by candlelight. This is surreal. Everything's okay, more or less. We lost some huge trees and didn't have water for about 24 hours, but full pressure is back and the trees are mostly cleaned up around here already. Who knows when we'll have power, though. Thank heavens for laptops and phone lines. Tomorrow's my birthday. I'm asking for electricity.

more thoughts
I haven't posted much this week because I've been overwhelmed. Overwhelmed by lectures, readings, memorization, new people (some of whom are already fast friends), hurricanes, random beautiful moments, random irritants. Every day is a lifetime here, at least for us new students. It's impossible to assimilate and understand everything that happens. So I apologize for not being here much. Rest assured that I still try to turn my days into blogable descriptions -- but then something else happens, and I don't have time to post. Eh. No excuses. I'm living. I'm good. Classes are still fascinating, but I really wish those freaking theologians would get to the point already. Yeah, I'm talking to you, Gustafson. Although I do appreciate what you've got to say. It's nice reading a preeminant theologian who takes the idea that man is not the focal point in the universe and runs with it. Is salvation God's ultimate goal for us? If not, what is? What do we do with our time if God is paying more ...

finally, power
Days stretch out when there's no power. You feel vaguely pioneer-like, slightly caveman-ish, even more heroic. Every commonplace errand takes on epic proportions. Especially the daily shower, which is icy unless you possess that unimaginable luxury, a gas heater. First the arm goes into the spray, then a shoulder, then the face, which is quickly withdrawn again. Then you say, "Ah hell" and plunge right in. When the power comes back on, it's hard to know what to do first. Me, I cleaned out the fridge (gross gross GROSS gross), turned on the AC, and took a long nap. Everyone around campus bore a goofy grin today, and conspicuously shiny faces and clean hair. What I'm trying to say is, this week hasn't been exactly normal. I feel completely cut off from anything that's been happening outside of this 3-block radius. I heard a rumor that the President came to Richmond, but I don't know anything about it. I picture him stepping off the plane in a flak jacket, muttering an aside to an ...

Photos of the damage that Isabel wreaked on campus have been posted on Union's website. I've got more, but haven't taken them off my camera yet. These are pretty good, but they're so...so...finite. Everything seemed much bigger and more dire when you were actually here.

the water is higher than it should be
Hebrew is becoming my favorite class for many reasons, not least of which is that the professor often drops off-the-cuff comments that provide better illumination and a-ha moments than daily chapel. Today's example: he pointed out (at length) that in the Hebrew Bible, the same word is used for Noah's ark and the basket in which baby Moses floated in the bulrushes. (I would really like to type it for you, but I can't find Hebrew characters on this bloody computer. Greek, but not Hebrew. Discrimination! Anyway, the root is kind of pronounced ah-rohn, spelled aleph with a pointed patach hataf, resh with a shureq, and a nun.) Noah's ark: the cork bobbing on the surface of void and destruction, carrying all of humanity's past and future. Therefore, when you see the same word popping up in the Moses story, the author is telling you to pay attention. As my professor put it: Things are pretty bad. And the water is higher than it should be. But God is still in control. The water's ...

my weekend
Ah, the State Fair. As many of you know, the State Fair brings out the kid in me. For instance, I went to the Fair Saturday with the goal of only eating foods on sticks. and ended up with a foot-long corndog, pork kebobs, and a frozen banana dipped in chocolate and sprinkles. (Now is the time for those of you who like making jokes about phallic symbols to jump in, as my friends did, with no compunction.) Fun times. The lines were annoying, though: I'm pretty sure that all of Virginia, with one voice, went, "I'm sick and tired of cleaning up after the hurricane; we're going to the FAIR!" That, plus the fact my friends insisted on reading the map and constantly trying to figure out where we were in relation to it, put a damper on the madcap insanity of it all. Oh well, at least I got to go, and we had a great time. Today, I worshipped at an African-American church for the first time: a fascinating experience. They raise their hands, dance, laugh, talk, clap, and have a good time! ...

new lessons/mid-week perspective
I think I'm getting into the swing of this school thingy. I told someone tonight that it almost doesn't seem fair that I'm enjoying what I'm learning so much. Isn't it supposed to be a chore to do homework? The stuff I'm assigned to read are books I'd probably read for myself anyway at some point or other. Maybe not in such a condensed time frame, but eh. What else am I going to do? Run for governor of California? Oh wait... In a learning experience of a different sort, I led Vespers on Tuesday night. We hold this service at 10 pm once a week, as an alternative to the people who can't make it to the 8 am prayer service. It's usually really casual...we sit in a circle on the floor, light candles, pray, sing, goof around and talk about our day. Typical attendance is 15-20, although more people have started showing up lately. There were about 20 there Tuesday, which was a large enough crowd for me, considering this was the first worship service I'd ever led by myself. The theme was ...

Accelerating Innovation with Neuroceuticals As I alluded to in Forecasting Happiness, neuroceuticals will play a prominent role in accelerating productivity across all economic sectors during the neurotechnology wave. One pervasive process that will be affected is the social process of innovation. Innovation is a key determinant of organizational success wherein cognitive assessment and emotional compassion combine to accelerate the creation of new knowledge. Over the past several decades access to a growing global information web has improved innovation cycle times across every industry. Over the next decade this trend will continue as social networks (opinions, thoughts and concerns) become embedded across this information sea, creating a knowledge web that is vastly more reliable. By improving cognitive clarity and emotional stability , neuroceuticals will make possible new behavioral repertoires that most of us cannot consistently attain today. For example, enhancing an ...
