Why mega-trades don't work
The pass-wacky Lions iced a road game solely by running to grind the clock, and did so versus the league's leading rush defense -- sweet for Detroit, sour for Jersey/B. . If they'd given their fantastic sums to any of the colleges where students ...

Tuesday Tip-Off: New Big East debuts as conference action begins
Terone and Ronnie Johnson combine for 24.8 points and 5.9 assists a game. But while Ohio State defensive wiz Aaron Craft can only guard one of them at a time, Purdue might not have an answer for the more physically imposing Buckeyes such as 6-11 post ...

Creativity, evolution of mind and the "vertigo of freedom"

The Cardinals had a three-goal lead wither away in the closing stages, and needed overtime to keep their impressive start to the season going. Scooter Harrington was the hero, firing the game winner with 42. 3 left in the extra session, sending Greenwich to a 7-6 win over the Wreckers. Harrington had his first shot in the four-minute overtime saved by Peter Burger , but got another chance after the Wreckers turned the ball over. "Will Perry did a great job of drawing my guy to the other side of the cage, it was a great play by him and I just finished at the doorstep. Staples (7-2, 5-2) won the overtime faceoff, and ran about one minute off the clock before firing one shot high over the cage and committing a turnover. "We couldn't clear the ball, we threw it away like three or four times in a row," Staples coach Paul McNulty said. Connor Chamberlin scored the game-tying goal for the Wreckers with 1:05 left in regulation. Will Perry scored a hat trick in the third quarter to give Greenwich (7-2, 7-0) a 6-3 lead, including twice in 15 seconds on a man-up opportunity. The goal with 1:07 left in the third quarter was the last one for the Cardinals before Harrington's heroics.
1 A DIALOGUE BETWEEN JASON SILVA AND TECHNO-ECOLOGIC SCHOLAR RICHARD DOYLE Richard Doyle also goes by mobius, an indicator of just how important interconnections are to him – and how transformative, bedeviling and hypnotic his ideas can be. As a... An explorer of the exciting and confusing rhetorical membrane between humans and an informational universe, he argues that in co-evolution with technology, we find ourselves in an evolutionary ecology that is as vital as it is unexplored. In Darwin’s Pharmacy: Sex, Plants and the Evolution of The Noösphere , the transhumanist philosopher focuses on his favorite technology: the psychedelic, “ecodelic” plants and chemicals (read: drugs) that can help make us process more information... JASON: Your new book Darwin’s Pharmacy talks about the relationship between psychedelic plants and the accelerating evolution of the “noosphere”, which some define as the knowledge substrate of reality, the invisible, informational dimension of...
A Conversation between TV personality and fellow at the Hybrid Reality Institute , Jason Silva and Rich Doyle, author of Darwin’s Pharmacy :. JASON SILVA : Your new book Darwin’s Pharmacy talks about the relationship between psychedelic plants and... RICH DOYLE : The book features a set of nested claims about the evolution of mind, psychedelics (or, as I prefer and propose, “ecodelics”), and the evolution of the noosphere, but all of the claims can be understood via two claims:. (1) Ecodelics have been an integral part of the human toolkit, so suppressing them is like suppressing music, jokes or other aspects of our humanity. (2) As integral parts of the human toolkit, ecodelics are best modeled as part of sexual selection — the competition for mates and the leaving of progeny. A careful look at Charles Darwin’s writings on sexual selection will show that sexual selection works through the management of attention — what we would now call “information technologies. The peacock is managing and focusing peahen attention with his feathers, so what we have called “mind” has been involved in evolution for a very long time. I work with the notion of the noosphere drawn from V. I. Vernadsky, and propose that we define it as the collective effect of attention of ecosystems.

No, he saw a mismatch; there was a switch, and Iowa State forward Georges Niang was on him. Craft waved off the team's leading scorer and let the clock tick down to nearly nothing while his teammates cleared out of the way. He faked like he might drive ...
