    It seems critical thinking was stifled some time ago and the big question is why? It angers me that Science is regulated so tightly that we humans are being robbed of vital discoveries that could not only help but cure as well. Too many regulations which aren't fair and I'm being polite when I say that. Keep writing, I want to read more about 'thingies!' @Gerald Hecht.

    @Gerald Hecht I can see that the ideals of academia are often prey to economic drivers, and also as you say: "Importantly, science should NOT be regulated to vast memorization of existing knowledge; rather, empirical methodology should be utilized towards the goal of discovery of new scientific territory." This is true in my mind - science should be practiced unfettered and to advance knowledge and human progress. A deep thinking post Gerald.

Can't ever forget that night.

    Gotta bounce this off some of our Professors here dear Gerry! Sounds monumentally somehow relevant to the inquiring spirit of academics and research and the increasing trend of industry alignment and the "patent and prosper" paradigm floating around! ;) just to add...the joy that thy thingie bringie, is compounded by thy wobblethingy :) Good lord!

    Some interesting thoughts on some challenging topics. I'm reminded of the phrases "seeing is believing" and how the entire "thingie" about canals on Mars demonstrated how our brains look for patterns and make connections that don't necessarily exist. The ability to think critically as well as explore what may seem like crazy ideas is fundamental to our learning.

    Excellent share Falvio! Very informative! Medical science is the most obscure area about itself. There are a number of long-practiced theories that are changed and are getting changed, costing millions of precious human lives. It must be remembered that nature is the diagnose and nature is the cure. It's mandatory that the medical science researcher should spend their time and resources to study the nature and natural process in detail to know all the internal processes of a human body. The present medical science is a huge failure, as the number of diseases and their intensity are increasing with every passing day. The current treatments are mostly focused on to control and suppress a disease. not to cure and eliminate it. This treatment horribly destroys the other body systems, resulting in more diseases to attack the body, and making all the things more complicated and worse.

    Interesting finding @Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza. I look forward to reading more research about glucose and brain tumors. I've known people who've had gliomas and the few I did know lived approximately one year with treatment. Thanks for sharing this!

    In this paper,we present a model for structural integrity analysis of boiler tubes made of plain carbon steel exposed to a local corrosion process and multiple hydrogen assisted degradation processes. The proposed model is practical for use in predictive maintenance for power plants.

    Artificial intelligence is not only about human-like robots and self-driving cars, but is also suitable for solving minor practical business problems. For example, today I tried “Mark Maker”, which is easy-to-use tool that generates and refines logos based on your feedback. It may seems simple, but in practice, the engine is driven by complex genetic algorithms.

    Try it out: http://emblemmatic.org/markmaker/#/

    Happy A.I. day!
