From Tacoma Two Museums Exhibit Asian Immigrant History

Two museums within a block of one another in the vibrant Museum District of Tacoma, Washington, have current exhibits that provide illuminating historical context for the hot-topic conversation around how the United States should treat its immigrant populations. On display at the Washington State History Museum are works created by a Japanese artist incarcerated at the Minidoka War Relocation Center during World War II. “Witness to Wartime: The Painted Diary of Takuichi Fujii,” runs through January 1, 2018.

Economic Markets Versus Basic Needs: A Biological Approach to the “Dismal Science”

Going forward, the “bioeconomy” must take precedence.  (An outline for achieving what might be called “the next major transition” in evolution is provided in my forthcoming 2018 book Synergistic Selection: How Cooperation has Shaped Evolution and the Rise of Humankind.)  To borrow a punch-line from the great twentieth century biologist Theodosius Dobzhansky, “the future is not vouchsafed by any law of nature, but it may be striven for.”


Alabama | It’s All On You

Not much has changed since Cookie Colangelo was deluged by unwanted advances back in 1971, except women aren’t going to put up with it anymore! It’s all on you, Alabama! You didn’t create the merry-go-round, but you can step up to the plate and say enough is enough!
