Back when we all shut down my esteemed colleague, and all around wise and omniscient entity, Karl suggested I have a theme for each newsletter. An extremely good idea I have tried to implement. It is now that I sincerely wish I was not the instrument of this excellent plan as my powers seem to be weakening. What is the theme this week you ask? I can honestly tell you that I started this with clear and noble intentions. I was thinking anxiety, introspection, health, and outdoors. Somehow they all seemed like the same topic. So below is what I did. I am no expert. I am simply an unsupervised gremlin writing a newsletter, from home, with his cat. Sometimes such circumstances start with a clear idea and result in Dracula (see below). Have you had enough of me for one Wednesday? That just means you are wired correctly. I never get a break from myself . . .ever.
Our door is still locked and we continue as we have since mid-march. That remains the safest course of action for our customers and ourselves. You are precious to us wherever you are so please proceed with that in mind. Take good care of each other.

Deep Learning in a Disorienting World
Jon Wergin

Much has been written about the escalating intolerance of worldviews other than one's own. Reasoned arguments based on facts and data seem to have little impact in our increasingly post-truth culture dominated by social media, fake news, tribalism, and identity politics. Recent advances in the study of human cognition, however, offer insights on how to counter these troubling social trends. [More. . .]

Dracula for Doctors: Medical Facts and Gothic Fantasies
Fiona Subotsky

Exploring how medicine and psychiatry are portrayed in gothic literature, this engaging book illustrates how Stoker's famous work was influenced by nineteenth-century attitudes to disease and medicine and reveals many previously unknown links. Extracts from many sensational stories of the time are presented and the role of doctors and their appearance and contribution to gothic fiction is investigated. The book covers topics such as asylums, their purpose, practice and patients, deadly diseases echoing the symptoms of vampirism, and the otherworldly allure of the undead. [More. . .]

 

Walking: One Step At a Time
Erling Kagge

Placing one foot in front of the other, embarking on the journey of discovery, and experiencing the joy of exploration—these activities are intrinsic to our nature. Our ancestors traveled long distances on foot, gaining new experiences and learning from them. But as universal as walking is, each of us will experience it differently. For Erling Kagge, it is the gateway to the questions that fascinate him—Why do we walk? Where do we walk from? What is our destination?—and in this book he invites us to investigate them along with him. [More. . .]

 

Silence: In the Age of Noise
Erling Kagge

In this astonishing and transformative meditation, Erling Kagge, famed Norwegian explorer and the first person to reach the South Pole alone, explores the silence around us, the silence within us, and the silence we must create. By recounting his own experiences and discussing the observations of poets, artists, and explorers, Kagge shows us why silence is essential to our sanity and happiness—and how it can open doors to wonder and gratitude. [More. . .]
