A lawyer advised me and my spouse to write separate wills :
as the will is charged at a fee per will, I'm trying to establish if this is a general
practice out there & the reasons for it : if it's one joint will, it will be charged
for one will's fee.

Reason was the lawyer wants to customize it to meet our special-needs
(intellectually disabled who can't live on his own) kid but by making the
wills separate, I'm curious how this helps

Modern Building
The revolutions brought on by the integration of advanced technology into the workplace cannot be underestimated. In the course of a couple of decades, IT has reshaped the way that we conduct business. These developments have brought on a surprising amount of changes in the way leadership is viewed.

Hi,
Is there any good book or epic or video which tells about different people we meet in life. The psychology of various relatives and people that we meet in life and how to be clever in judging people etc. I think epics like Mahabharata are on these lines.
Thanks

I had this question after viewing The ultimate answer.

I think this current question belongs in Philosophy zone and is related to other questions that ask about related questions.

I tried to ask a related question. But I stated that I did not know how to ask a related question.
Expert offered advice about related question but not about the question I asked.

The way I phrased the my question; the expert may have answered the question correctly.

This is a question that I have had in the back of my mind for a while, and I wonder what your thoughts are, and if there is any evidence for or against it.

My reason for thinking this is true, is that both groups tend to answer unexplained events with some "authority figure". For religion, examples include "nobody knows what causes lightning, so Zeus must do it when he's angry" or "I do not understand how evolution can come up with new designs, so there has to be an Intelligent Designer".

For conspiracy theories we can include "The twin towers collapse could not have happened as claimed, hence some dark authority is behind it" or "Oswald could not have shot Kennedy on his own, so the FBI/CIA/Cuba must be involved".

Another reason for my thinking is the fact hat the US is the most common birthplace of conspiracy theories - and the US is also the most religious nation in the developed world.

What do you think?

Hi
I was in a band in late nineties college,
am 39 now, single, set up financially, don't want to sneak into the decimated music industry now. I'm not going to sing for a 90 second trial in front of Simon, etc for AGT. I am of the Nirvana/Pearl Jam, don't care about clothes and 80's hair band superficiality. Online song submission venues still mention to bare in mind your image and personality. Hah! It never dies off. If I dye my hair pink like Kurt Cobain, the old bastards I have wings-night and watch football with won't be impressed.
Playing live 'round town now is more invisible than playing at an old age home, which I did once with my Novell colleagues, btw, and also at a metal institute!
But, it's the millennials that comb these sites for new music. How? Where? How can I insert my music into the millennials' radar?

If I'm not myself a millennial, is music a waste of time? It feels like it. As a 19 year old, I digged DMB, but he was all over the radio, and TV. I can handle doing it for myself and satisfaction of live play. Is that all there is for non-millennials? Dave Matthews was 36 and the others in DMB were old like me, too.

Thanks

Hi
I know this is not maths and science but I've asked tonnes of maths and science questions on here and got better answers than maths forums. I know this is pushing my luck asking a grammar question in the this topic but I have proposed this topic.
So the question. If my boyfriend and I went shopping the grammar is 'boyfriend and I' not 'boyfriend and me'. If a cake was shared between me and my boyfriend the grammar is 'my boyfriend and me' and not my boyfriend and me. The current trend seems to be to say 'and I' regardless as aren't confident in their grammar so they say 'and I' as a catch all as they know it is a common mistake. But is there a rule when you use the word myself (I know you don't start a sentence with but)? For example, I dragged myself to the gym. Would it be 'I dragged my boyfriend and myself go to the gym' or is it 'I dragged my boyfriend and me go the the gym?'
I know it's not a crucial topic but it is bugging me as I did used to proofread and I can't see this in any of my grammar books.
I'm sorry if I have misused this topic and I hope the moderators don't get too annoyed but the description does say that ,although the topic is Maths and Science, questions are asked on other subjects like biology. This suggests biology isn't a science which is quite brave to say  as biologists don't like this, but biology is information-based and not axiomatic like physics or maths. If biology is a science because it is based on experiments and observation and then …

Hi,
I recently came across george berkeley. And just started reading his three dialogues.
I felt there is some similarity between what is called gyan yoga or marg in vedanata/hinduism and georege berkeley idealism.

Can anyone suggest some good references for gyan yoga / good philosophy on similar lines of george berkeley. His philosophy is termed as subjective idealism

Thanks

On the page:

http://www.williambranham.com/the-original-sin/

I see two references to I John 3:12 with different quotes.

I need to know what Bible verse (and version) contains the following quote:

Before Adam ever had carnal knowledge of Eve, the serpent had that knowledge ahead of him. And that one born of it was Cain. Cain was of (born of, begotten of) that “Wicked One”. I John 3:12

when I search the web for I John 3:12 and even the page I posted, there is a different quote that does not interest me.

Can onion teach me how to find the bible version for this verse I John 3:12 that matches the bolded text above?

Thanks

Sherlock Holmes famously said,

“Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.”

Is this Deductive reasoning, Inductive reasoning or something else?

Thanks!

This has nothing to do with technology, but it's a brilliant and important piece about that nature of beliefs, cognitive bias, and how the human mind responds to information that conflicts with what it already knows. You may have already seen this, but if not, I implore you to give it a read.

Perhaps, if we all understood this, we could work together a little bit more and fight a little bit less...

What do you think?

The cartoon (content) was mediocre, but the 'Neural correlates of maintaining one’s political beliefs in the face of counterevidence' study was very good and worth more than the price of admission. I'll have to search to see if the study was repeated for conservatives (or others). It seems well worth verifying that the same structures become active across a spectrum of belief types.

One of the 10 Commandments is adultery. A female member of the church who attends every week, missed three Sundays. The minister and some members were concerned about her well being, etc. In an e-mail to the minister she said that she had traveled to meet someone to discuss starting a family. She is not married so no adultery on her part. Nothing is known about her partner.

If a couple who are not married to other people have a child out of wedlock have both of them committed a sin?
There is more to this and we can post more later.

At what point does technology become a part of you? It seems reasonable to assume that a pacemaker might be considered as such but what about a prosthetic leg? If someone damages it would that be considered personal injury or property damage? Now how about your cell phone?

David Ackley from UNM offers the following principle called the carried network demarc:
The machines that you routinely carry under your own power, and their contents and interactions, should be considered part of your body as a matter of law and social norm.

His position is informed by his work on artificial life and research into computing in a post-Von Neumann computer architecture. I've recently discovered his work and devoured his entire youtube channel post history and recommend that you check him out.

Do note this question is not intended to address your personal beliefs but of what you can surmise of others.

 Consider case where one thinks a living Jesus was strung upon cross but survived the experience.

 MQ: Which way did he then go?

What way did he go NSEW to where- did he arrive at destination? In what condition.

Suppose same question concerning where he went would apply to those also denying the use of cross. It was not among his symbologies.
