Honoring Katherine G Johnson NASA Physicist Mathematician

Katherine G. Johnson, a physicist, and a mathematician who started high school when she was 10 years old, and college when she was 15, she died in 2020 at the age of 102.

I want to honor this human-computer genius because of what she represents to me: intelligence, character, courage, strength, love for science, life, for freedom. I just love one of her quotes: “I didn’t feel any segregation. I knew it was there, but I didn’t feel it.” Oh, I forgot to tell you: she is an American woman who was considered a “colored computer” when she worked for NASA back in the fifties (color, gender, race, country patriotism are not that important to me. Intelligence is)

I mention one of her many quotes because that happens to me all the time. While people talk about being discriminated against because they are short, fat, thin, black, brown, white, yellow, tall, thin, whatever ( I am sure I fit in many of these “colorful” name-callings), I just care about going on, about to continue with my interests in life: I am focussed. And that is what she was: a focussed-stubborn very smart woman who didn’t waste her time on menial things. She dedicated her mind to science. Political and social hate was put to the side, off the path she walked.

It is an honor for me to walk this earth Mrs. Katherine Johnson walks. It is a privilege for me to live on this earth at the same time Mrs. Johnson lives. 100 years old and she breathes the same air I do. How lucky I am! I send her my most utter respect and admiration for her work in science and exemplary life as a human being.

Agnosticism, Religion, Science

I Believe In Evidence

“Don’t you believe in anything?” Isaac Asimov said, “I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers”.

“Organized” religion, “des-organized” religion: sects and cults, have been created by humans throughout millennia. As humans evolved from small hunter-gatherer tribes into large agrarian cultures, our ancestors needed to encourage cooperation and tolerance among relative strangers. Religion then—along with the belief in a moralizing God—was a cultural adaptation to these challenges.

I Love Bacteria …. the Good Kind Though

Yes, there is always good and bad in all, isn’t? And bacteria is not the exception.

good bacteria dra martha castro noriega

Our bodies have different tissues full of excellent microbes that help us fight the bad ones. It is so important that we take care and preserve this kind, helpful and faithful bacteria, so we can have an army of healthy tiny micro bio-soldiers for the attack of the bad ones when necessary.

good bacteria dra martha castro noriega

In fact, you couldn’t survive without some bacteria!  Good ones help digest your food and fight invading microbes.  Also, they are used in making some of the dairy products you like to eat and also some types of medicines!  It is one of the best decomposers – they break down dead and decaying organic matter, from leaves to insects.

Best of all, it is being used to clean up oil spills to keep your environment healthy too.

Saturday Night For The Freethinker: Albert Einstein

Einstein would probably not have classified himself as a freethinker in the sense in which it is used in this movement. He probably would not have supported all the positions taken in the Freethinker. However, he puts an absolute priority on the need for all of us to think independently of established ideas. This is how he overthrew Newtonian physics.

The Soul Of Earth: Mother Nature Have The First-Class Week

There has always been a debate on whether or not these natural occurrences are just an example of mother nature and her cycles of extreme weather, or rather a result of the human race contributing to an altered climate with more extreme phenomena.

Researchers and scientists have always attributed some blame towards human existence having an impact, however, a constant barrage of new data consistently indicates it is very much up to “us” to take back “some” of the control from mother nature.

Steven Hawking explains HERE how our planet is at risk of resulting in a similar atmosphere of Venus, which is made up of a super-heated supercritical fluid under immense pressure near the surface, making the planet inhabitable due to runaway greenhouse warming.

A clear warning sign and a notable threat if we refuse to consider the carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas levels in our home planet’s atmosphere.

Learning Monday: Genetically Engineered Cells Have Kept 2 Patients Cancer Free For A Decade

“The treatment, known as CAR-T cell therapy, used the patients’ own genetically engineered immune cells to track down and kill cancerous cells (SN: 6/27/18). Based on the results, “we can now conclude that CAR-T cells can actually cure patients with leukemia,” cancer immunologist and study coauthor Carl June of the University of Pennsylvania said at the briefing.”
