Holding Genes Passes Genes

December 8, 2017

Holding Genes, Passes Genes!

This article, “Holding Infants – or not – can leave traces on their genes,” supports an idea I’ve had called “Carrying the Baby.”

My sci-fi novel, “Writings in Science a History of the Future” suggests that a key reason for the development of humans brains are ‘carrying the baby.”

First humans (hominids) walked upright. This led to their hands free – not only for war (most scientists are men) – but for carrying the baby.

This led to a stronger mother child bond, that I suggest supported everything from language development, to human intelligence.

Read the article, then read my sci-fi novel, perhaps the biggest ever written. Now available at all major streaming book sites.

Want to Go To Mars?

December 8, 2017

Want to go to Mars?

Yes, everyone would be excited about a manned mission to Mars,
Yes, I love science, and have even written a huge sci-fi novel* that is a history of the future that features colonies on Mars. Yes, that would be great but first ….

The science community has to find some solutions for problems here on Earth. Solutions that end poverty,get clean food and water in abundance for all, end major diseases, devise low cost power, and combat global warming,

THEN, everyone will be on your side and behind you. Then everyone will cheer when the first rocket sails for the Red Planet, lands and returns.

First things first. Then go with the world’s blessings!

*Writings in Science, a history of the future in stories, essays, poems and plays. May not be the widest Sci-fi book written, but it may be the biggest.

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

What is this … ?

IS …

An ellipsis! Three dots ( … ) that suggest continuation, are called an ellipsis! So easy! I had no correct eligible answers. Seems we had a case of un- punctuated equilibrium … in the brain! I don’t dumb down so please wise up.

Now on to a new Q.: Win a copy of any of my 9 CDs, a streaming copy of one of my 6 books, or copy of one of my artworks, IF you are the first to …

E-MAIL ME AT THIS ADDRESS: tom-hendricks @ att.net (remove blanks of course) with the correct answer to the following art question .

DEDICATION: These contests are dedicated to my sister, Peggy, who answered more of the questions correctly than anyone else so far.

QUESTION

Sexual harassment is certainly nothing new. This major female actress, wrote this about working at her classic TV series:

“That show catered to every kinky thing imaginable – and no wonder considering some of the writers we had. We had a foot fetishist I’ll never forget. That’s why I was always being photographed in leather boots with my feet stuck in the air somehow. Another one was fascinated by bondage, so for another string of shows I was always getting tied up in some outlandish way. And the leather! God, I thought I’d never get out of all that leather. ”

Name the actress. (Then stop sexual harassment!)

FINE PRINT: The prize is only available to those with mailing addresses in the US. Foreign winners will have to settle for the miniscule fame alone, and the satisfaction of a job well done. But don’t forget you can always listen to all the music , read all my writings, and see all the art, whether you win or lose – and I’d be glad if you did!

Readers, IF you like these puzzles and would like to resend them to friends, post them on any newsgroup, or any website, please do so. The more the merrier!

Letter to ArtandSeek

December 6, 2017

Letter to Art and Seek: I gave you the lowest rating. Here is why.

Lowest rating. Artandseek does not cover progressive Texas and Dallas musicians, painters, writers, filmmakers, dancers, etc. or the issues connected with them. Instead it blocks them from coverage. My 25 years of reporting on the arts and media in Dallas has proven that to me. For the most part any innovative artist in any field has left Dallas for places more conductive to innovative people.

KXT-FM blocks the new music, the national music revolution, and the new Dallas progressive musicians leading it. Instead it plays music that fits a rigid marketing format (AAA). KERA blocks news of the new music, art, writers, media, etc. Sadly the few extremely talented people left in Dallas have been marginalized or just brushed aside.

Artandseek, has not spoken out for
1. Fair reviews. Seems to support press releases more than solid journalism, and covers puff pieces more than real issues.
2. Fair pay. Artandseek has not advocated for fair pay for all the artists in Dallas.
3. Innovative work. Artandseek praises the followers and ignores the innovators.
4. Artandseek has not opposed the consolidation in the arts from thousands of companies into around 10 – ex. 3 CEOs (all men, no women) control 80% of the music industry and have forced virtually every Texas musician into working for about minimum wage at their craft.
5 Artandseek will not talk about the protests in the arts, and the progressive activists leading the change, even when they originated here in Dallas.
6. Artandseek will not stand up to bad media coverage of the arts or the dwindling art coverage from the Dallas daily or the weekly papers.
We are left with press release journalism, that never covers issues in the arts such as: no protest songs allowed on any mainstream radio in the US, public domain mess or why isn’t Mickey Mouse in the PD, political book deals with massive advances, Hollywood makes millions but theater workers make lowest wages allowed, 3 CEO’s control 80% of music (Warners Universal Sony) and 1% of musicians make 70% of the money… etc. etc. etc.
7. Artandseek does not cover online artists, and their innovative work, websites, protests, etc.

Dallas, and it’s musicians, painters, writers, filmmakers, actors, dancers, craftsmen, etc. etc. deserve better.

Bumper Stickers, a New Crop

December 3, 2017

From the “What if” Department:

Bumper stickers.
I’ve always thought that if someone invented a bumper sticker that was magnetic and could be easily removed from a bumper, then they could print up some real snarky, outrageous ones, sneak up on parked cars, and plant them on unsuspecting victims. Then when the driver figured it out, he could easily peal it off with no real harm to his car, and a lot of fun for the poster.
