Did This Extinct Human Species Commit Homicide?

Did This Extinct Human Species Commit Homicide?

Did Homo naledi behave more like H. homicidensis?

Here is my latest SKEPTIC Piece for Scientific American.

My work with Michael Mrak, the brilliant Art Director, and Michael Shermer and his thought provoking writing, keeps me on my toes with anticipation for next month’s column. Thank you both. I keep on enjoying myself, immensely.



Algorithmic trading

Algo trading

Algorithmic trading, also called algo trading and blackbox trading, encompasses trading systems that are heavily reliant on complex mathematical formulas and high-speed, computer programs to determine trading strategies.[1][2] These strategies use electronic platforms to enter trading orders with an algorithm which executes pre-programmed trading instructions accounting for a variety of variables such as timing, price, and volume.[3] Algorithmic trading is widely used by investment banks, pension funds, mutual funds, and other buy-side (investor-driven) institutional traders, to divide large trades into several smaller trades to managemarket impact and risk.[4][5]

Algorithmic trading may be used in any investment strategy or trading strategy, including market making, inter-market spreading, arbitrage, or pure speculation (including trend following). The investment decision and implementation may be augmented at any stage with algorithmic support or may operate completely automatically.



Farewell old friend

Station to station

Station to station

On his interplanetary travel, it seems like Bowie’s time on earth was up. My personal sadness for his premature departure evoked and commissioned this image from my mind. (The image was later harnessed to Artzi’s column in ‘7 days’)

Like most people experiencing their teens in the 70’s and beyond, it was Bowie who shared, informed, designed and seasoned the minds of our forming and confused minds.

He was a partner for our most intimate moment, aroused emotions, which had no name, yet were strong and meaningful for our susceptible hearts.

Wherever you go, keep on the good work. There’s no one like you.
