Every once in a while I’ll go on the BBC or some other British broadcasting outfit, and I’ll have to bend over backward to simplify some things that need no explaining to American fans, given their superior knowledge of the game.
But such was not the case with Sam Millner of nbalockdown.com, a new site founded just two months ago. Millner is an avid NBA fan from the U.K., currently studying for a masters in Software Engineering at the University of Sheffield.
His best question was the one I dodged the best by making him re-phrase it. He asked: “Who is the worst coach in the NBA?” Instead, I told him I would tell him which coach has the most to prove in the NBA.
Kelly Milnar Halls' forthcoming In Search of Sasquatch: An Exercise in Zoological Evidence (Houghton Mifflin, 2011) takes another shot at the Bigfoot mystery, one which has intrigued, frustrated, and entertained Americans for over half a century. Hall succinctly summarizes the history of the Sasquatch phenomenon in a chapter augmented by a map showing the number of sightings around North America, photos of apelike stone heads made by pre-Columbian Indians, baskets with designs of giant apelike figures woven in the Southwest, and a table showing tribes, from Cherokee to Zuni.the tribal name for the Bigfoot creature, and its English translation. She then recounts the stories of early and recent Bigfoot hunters, with photos of the castings taken of footprints over the years from huge adults to smaller juveniles, all amazingly similar. Hall deftly summarizes the evidence for and against the existence of the "real" Sasquatch, but insists that despite the lack of incontrovertible documentation, many scientists still believe that there is something out there.
Just like any complex biological system, the principle of self-organization demands that any open or living system always tries to find equilibrium in order to stay alive.When one living system in nature exploits another in order to have all the power out of selfish self-interest and throws other systems in nature out of balance, the principle of self-organization and evolution come into play to correct the imbalance. That exploiting system is met with the powerful force of Nature which prods it back into line--into finding equilibrium again.
According to my guest, Dr Darrell Millner, this principle of self-organization and the natural desire to evolve plays out in terms of man’s inhumanity towards man. History is a record of humanity seeking equilibrium from exploitation, showing the pendulum swing of our collective experience of exploitation as it moves back and forth from slavery, genocide, and holocausts to trust, inclusion, and equality. It is the story of racism--the story of exploitation. Join me and my esteemed guest, Dr Darrell Millner, as we have a scholarly conversation about where in that pendulum swing for balance from exploitation racism is today. Pre-recorded.
