Architecture Career bound

- Career Bound I have always been interested in fixing things and trying to make things look better; even as a kid helping my dad in construction projects was so fun. It was my father who passed the trade down to me and the ease to try to work around certain problems. I might not always have made the proper choices within the field but found myself very interested in the work. Yes, I probably did not want to get out of bed to work in carpentry or painting some days but I really enjoy restoring, bringing structures back to life, and even building new ones from scratch....   [tags: Architecture]

It Isn't What God is, But What God is Not

- Let's play a game; I will give you an example of my rule, and your objective is to guess what my rule is. You may propose other examples to test your hypothetical rule and I will confirm if it agrees with my rule or not. Let's begin; my one and only example of my rule is this: 2, 4, 6. Now, if this question was asked to a sample population, the average answer would be a multiplet of 2 (e.g. 8, 10, 12 or 5, 10, 15). Although, these answers fit my rule, “multiplet of 2” is not the rule. The correct answer ( or rule, in my game) is that the numbers are in ascending order....   [tags: confirmational bias, Maimonides, God]
