To help create specific technology, some people with a PhD in neuroscience and specialty in activities such as gaming and film, … Continue reading “Neuroscience for Media Use”

Most of the transplants, just so happen to be extreme political liberals, … Continue reading “10 Years in San Francisco, Part 1”

“Life is About Experiences, Not What Studies Say”

          What is the meaning of life? That is a constant question that SOOOOO many people have about their purpose and self-worth. If anyone must question about the meaning of life or where life does take them, then, they’ve obviously NEVER experienced any ounce of hardship!

Some people complain that it’s because they’re female in which society has mistreated them. The … Continue reading “Life is About Experiences, Not What Studies Say”
