Beauty and Genetic Enhancement
Nausea. To describe the whole situation in one word I would have to

choose nausea. The Expo center was packed with societies elite, eagerly

waiting the announcement of what the rumor mill had told them to be the most

important invention of the decade. The air was cold and damp, like that of a

hospital. Barley audible was the most annoying Michael Bolton song that I could

The Beast Within

The Beast Within
The spawn knelt in the shadows of the corner. His iridescent eyes

searching the dark for his prey. A prey he knew very well, almost too well.

Life As A Hummingbird
I eased behind the huge mass of nesting material and took a firm hold of

several strands, I then pulled back, quickly, to pull them free. The jarring

concussion, which followed, took me by suprise. I tried to get my bearings as

the ground rushed up to meet me and recovered about two feet from the ground.

and that he had not been happy about it. He was rubbing his head and throwing

immense volumes of noise at me. Hummingbirds make mistakes just like everyone

else and more than most when trying to build and protect a nest.

Creative Destruction of Jobs

Creative Destruction of Jobs
The United States, along with many other countries is beginning to move to robotics to help with the workload of many companies. Working robots are becoming a more affordable and logical source of production. Pretty soon they will be found in all major factories. The problem with this is that robots are replacing humans on the job. Some people are saying that all robots should be banned from the work force. On the other hand, people are saying to use them as helpers only. However, there is a much better solution to this problem than the two previous stated.
